2015 PG To Visit SLU

2015 point guard Nick Rogers will visit SLU unofficially on Saturday. His father Felix spoke with BillikenReport.com.

On Saturday, Saint Louis will host rising junior guard Nick Rogers.

The six-foot-one lead guard from Indiana runs with Eric Gordon All-Stars on the AAU circuit and has already garnered a solid offr sheet.

His contact with the Billikens thus far has been limited, but the Rogers' family is excited to get down and see what St. Louis is all about.

"Assistant coach Calbert Chaney came to see Nick a little while back," his father Felix said. "We have a good familiarity with him and he has shown interest in Nick."

Although they have yet to meet head coach Jim Crews, this weekend allows them some time to engage with him and get to know more about the Bills.

"There are a lot of Indiana connections on the staff so that's a positive," he said. "I would love for Nick to get an offer [from SLU]. We have family there and it's not far from [Indianapolis]. It would be great, to be honest."

Rogers is known as a heady guard that has good athleticism and can shoot the ball well from mid-range.

The Billikens have one confirmed offer out in 2015 as far as point guards are concerned -- to Prentiss Nixon.

Academics will factor in heavily in his decision, but don't expect a commitment any time soon.

"I would think that by this time next year he will be ready to make a commitment," Felix said. "Things change, but we haven't even trimmed the list [of 12 offers and more interest] yet."
