Because, well, Rogers stands at 6-foot-4, 298-pounds, and has been holding his own at Nike’s The Opening Finals all week, facing some of the best offensive line prospects in the country.
So you can see why U-M is so interested, and, well, the interest is mutual in the Wolverines, says Rogers.
“Michigan is definitely high on my list, (I’m) being recruited by them still very hard, just getting an opportunity to talk to those guys and stuff, having a relationship with coach (Greg) Mattison and coach (Jim) Harbaugh, it’s really a blessing,” Rogers said. “So I am just thankful for all of it. I’m definitely excited to see how this goes and how it plays out.”
With that being said, Rogers says his next plan is to get up to Ann Arbor for a visit.
“I’m most likely going to take an official visit there,” Rogers said. “Just get out there and hangout with the guys and see how everything plays out.”
Adding: “I definitely want to see all the good things about Michigan, because Michigan football alone speaks for itself. I definitely want to see the academic side of it. What will I major in and everything.
“See how everything plays out, academic-wise, football-wise, just the relationships I have the coaches and see if those relationships are actually real, you know how I feel and how they act around me. That’s really what I am looking for when I go out there.”
Coming up, Rogers says he will be taking visits to UCLA and USC next week. He says he plans on taking visits to his top six schools before announcing his final decision Dec. 9. Although, he did note he may make his final decision at the end of the summer if possible.
His top six schools in no particular order include: Michigan, Oklahoma, USC, UCLA, Arizona State and Colorado.
