Las Vegas (Nev.) Arbor View junior defensive tackle Greg Rogers has over double-digit offers from all over the country, but still was hoping to expand his offer list especially from a big time program like Michigan.
After several weeks of communication, the Scout 300 prospect finally landed an offer.
“I have been in contact with Michigan for a while now and finally (Defensive Line) Coach (Greg) Mattison and (Tight Ends) Coach Jay Harbaugh reached out to me and told me to give them a call,” Rogers told The Michigan Insider. “I gave them a call and during the phone call they offered me. I am really, really big on them and it is a school I have been waiting on to get an offer from. They are big time.
“It is definitely a big time offer for me. I love everything about Michigan football and I am looking forward to building this relationship with the coaches and seeing what the future holds. They are very high for me.”
Despite being nearly two thousand miles away, the 6-4, 298-pounder is very knowledgeable of the long and rich history surrounding the Maize and Blue program.
“I am familiar with Michigan football like Desmond Howard and Charles Woodson coming out of that program and have a few other big time name guys come out of there,” said Rogers. “I have watched Michigan football for a while now and they have great tradition. Like I said, I know a few things about them.”
One bright spot for Rogers when looking at Michigan is their headman Jim Harbaugh and the chance to even get recruited by him.
“Coach Harbaugh is a great guy,” said Rogers. “Everything that he has done and from all his previous history, Coach Harbaugh is a great guy. He knows how to get people in and out to the NFL and he’s just a great guy. He knows what he is doing and talking about. He’s a great guy and I have nothing negative to say about him at all. I’m glad he even looked at my film, which is a blessing.”
Scout’s No. 35 overall rated prospect now has his sights on traveling out to Ann Arbor in the future.
“It might be hard to get out to Michigan for one of my unofficial visits, but I could definitely see Michigan being one of my official visits,” said Rogers. “The opportunity to be a part of Michigan football is just really, really big. Like I said, it is just great tradition, awesome tradition and with the past years, what they have been doing and being a part of that program and what Coach Harbaugh is doing is something very special.”
