Still, Rogers, a three-star wide receiver, came away impressed with the Cardinals.
"It was a great visit," Rogers said. "It was a new experience and I liked that it's a city that revolves around sports."
Rogers was one of five recruits from Miami who visited Louisville over the weekend, including five-star teammate Teddy Bridgewater. Louisville assistant Clint Hurtt, who was a former coach at Miami, is the Cardinals connection to talent in Dade County.
Charlie Strong, whose name was mentioned as a candidate at Florida to replace Urban Meyer last week, made a big impression on Rogers this weekend. Strong guided Louisville to a bowl game for the first time in four seasons during his first season and has the program on the fast track to the top of the Big East.
"We were just talking about how much its like a family there and I was talking about the opportunity I'd have there if I went to Louisville," Rogers said. "It's going to be where I feel most comfortable and what is the best opportunity for me."
Rogers would have a great opportunity to catch lots of passes in Louisville's spread offense. He spent a lot of time talking with the Cardinals offensive coaches during his official visit, including receiver coach Ron Dugans.
"I feel I'd fit in the system great," Rogers said. "It's a spread system. I was talking to Coach Dugans, who went to Florida State and played in the NFL, and he's a cool coach. I really liked talking to him and we have a great bond."
While there was considerable speculation that Bridgewater and Rogers would commit to Louisville during their visits, the talented Miami offensive prospects will allow the recruiting process to play out a while longer before announcing public decisions.
Where does Louisville stand on Rogers' list? "They're in front right now," Rogers said. "They're No. 1 on my list."
Both prospects plan to visit other schools before announcing decisions. Bridgewater will visit South Florida this week, but Rogers said he's not going on that visit to Tampa with his teammate. Both players also plan to visit Cincinnati this week, and LSU and UCF could also receive visits.
Rogers also said Miami, who recently hired Temple coach Al Golden to replace Randy Shannon, isn't out the equation, but added, "I have to hear from them, though." Rogers said he hasn't talked with any of the Hurricane coaches recently.
As for Bridgewater, who hasn't returned phone messages the past two days, Rogers said he also liked what he found at Louisville last weekend.
"He liked the trip, too," Rogers said. "The plan is to go to the same school, but if it doesn't work out...."
Rogers said he hopes to announce his college decision at the Under Armour All-American game January 5.
