Rogers leaves Nebraska with an offer

Nebraska offered 2015 point guard Nick Rogers on Monday.

Traders Point Christian Academy (IN) point guard Nick Rogers had a long drive to Nebraska, but it was worth it.

The 2015 prospect picked up an offer from the Huskers on Monday during his visit – his fourth D-1 offer for the soon to be junior.

"One of my goals at the beginning of this summer was to get a Big Ten offer, and when they told me they would offer me a scholarship, I sort of had a ‘oh wow' moment. It caught me off guard, but I was ecstatic," said Rogers.

"The campus is perfect, really great. It wasn't too big or too small. I got to talk to the academic advisor and he was really cool, telling me how they do things there on the academic side.

"The facilities are there are ridiculous. It's crazy – they got the ice bath, the hot tub, TVs in the bathroom stalls, just all this crazy stuff."

Besides talking to Miles, Rogers got a chance to talk with legendary former head football coach and athletic director Tom Osborne.

At 6-foot, 170-pounds, Rogers says he is a pass first point guard that likes to bring an energy on the floor.

"I will try to pick people up full court. So many point guards like to go up-tempo, but I like to try to frustrate them," said Rogers. "I can shoot the three, so I can stretch a defense out. I really like to read defenses and make the appropriate play. "

Rogers knows Nebraska appears to be on the right track with second-year head coach Tim Miles and knows right now might be the best time to jump on board.

"Of course I want to be a winner, but if I go there, and we turn things around, I can always say I helped that program get on track, that I helped players down the road," said the 2015 prospect. "It's not just about me right now, but the future of the program."

Rogers will visit IUPUI on Thursday and also Tennessee on Friday. He also currently has offers from Kent State, Northern Illinois, and Loyola Chicago.
