Smyrna (GA) Campbell athlete Mike Rogers has been called one of the top sleeper prospects in the nation for the 2014 class.
More offers continue to roll in and he's not the unknown prospect he was a few months ago. He's erased that sleeper prospect tag and become a senior to know for many of the country's top colleges.
Ohio State was the latest school to send a scholarship offer Rogers' way and they are a school that he has had his sights set on for a while.
"It was the one I wanted.," Rogers said about the offer from the Buckeyes. "It was the one I was waiting for."
"I have followed Ohio State since the 7th or 8th grade," he added. "It was my favorite team growing up. They had Terrelle Pryor back then and now he's starting to become one of the better playmakers in the NFL. They always have a great defense and are always in big primetime games. It is easy to get noticed there and I've always wanted to play there since I was younger."
The Buckeyes' coaches didn't have a whole lot to say to Rogers but the message was received loud and clear.
"I've been in contact with Ohio State for a while," explained Rogers. "They didn't say too much other than that I had an offer. They just kept it short and simple. They are just waiting on some test scores and told me to keep working hard on and off the field. They want me."
"I haven't set a date for it or anything like that but I do plan on visiting Ohio State," he continued. "It is probably a situation where a visit would happen after the season."
Rogers, a Central Florida commit, talked about his current status with that program.
"I'm still committed to them," he made clear. "I'm going to look at a few schools and look around. I'm still committed, though. I'll just look at Ohio State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Clemson, and Syracuse."
