Rogers Has Familiarity with TCU

Frankston, TX 2016 receiver Kendrick Rogers has been a lifelong fan of TCU. Now, he's getting strong interest from the program.

Frankston, TX may play at one of the lowest classifications in Texas, but they boast one of the top players for the 2016 class in receiver Kendrick Rogers.

A starter since his freshman year, the 6-foot-4, 185-pounder had a breakout season in 2013, hauling in 47 catches for 720 yards and 6 touchdowns. For his efforts, Rogers was named first team All-District 10-2A.

Rogers is currently rated as the No. 54 receiver in the nation and No. 284 overall player in the recently released Top 300 for the 2016 class.

A few programs have already taken notice of Rogers; North Texas and SMU have extended offers. TCU is another program who has shown interest, especially after an impressive performance at a recent Frogs' camp where he was one of the top skill players in attendance.

"They told to come back on July 18th," he said. "They want to see me add some size and get better foot work."

Rogers does plan to attend the Frogs' camp next month.

TCU may have a slight advantage over others thanks to a close family connection. Rogers' uncle, Quentily Harmon, was a receiver for the Frogs from 2002-2006 and according to Rogers would like to see the family tradition continue at TCU.

"It's his dream for me to go there in college," Rogers said. "I want to make him happy and go up there and play."

Rogers also has a familiarity with his recruiter from TCU; offensive line coach Jarrett Anderson. Anderson coached Harmon and Rogers knows that while the coach is easy to get along with, he also knows he'll work him hard.

"He seems like a really cool guy but he's also going to be on you the whole time," he said. "He won't let you slack off."

With a family member that played there and a familiar coach, one could assume Rogers has a high interest in the Frogs. That would be a correct assumption.

"I've loved TCU since I was about eight and it just grows each year as I get older," he said. "It just grows and grows."

Rogers is also excited about the new offense the Frogs plan to unveil this season, especially since it has an emphasis on the passing game.

"It's good for me as a receiver because it means more reps for me and more opportunities," he said.

Rogers says location and academics will play a role in his decision making.
