Rogers talks Louisville visit

Did Wes Rogers' visit to Louisville Friday solidify the Cardinals position with the three-star offensive lineman from Indianapolis?

After a return visit to Louisville Friday, Charlie Strong's program is the clear leader for three-star Indianapolis offensive lineman Wes Rogers, the nation's No. 12-ranked center prospect.

"It went really well," Rogers said. "I had a lot of fun and learned a lot of stuff about the school. I talked to the coaches. They said they'd love to have me down there. It's a great place. It's close to home and a great education. My [mom and dad] really liked it and were real impressed with the campus and how everyone liked Coach Strong down there."

Rogers has maintained that Louisville is his leader since receiving an offer from the Cardinals during spring practice, and the versatile 2012 offensive line prospect said his most recent visit to UofL solidified the Cardinals position as his frontrunner.

"It definitely helped out," Rogers said. "They took great care of me and I loved it down there. It just enhanced what I had already known about it. I really liked it."

While Louisville is the team to beat for Rogers, several Big 10 programs could challenge the Cardinals if they decide to offer. Though Indiana, Purdue, Iowa, Northwestern and Michigan State haven't offered scholarships to Rogers, the three-star lineman will attend camp at each school later this month.

"I've got five camps I'm going to go to and then I will probably make a decision before the end of summer," Rogers said. "I'm not really looking for any [offers] I just want to see what is out there. I want to know when I make my decision that it is right for me."
