USC commit, Vols legacy considering Tennessee

Does the Tennessee staff have it in it to reel in a Southern California commit? Sign in to learn about the recruitment of Amari Rodgers.

Amari Rodgers has a decision on his hands.

The Knoxville Catholic (Tenn.) High School junior wide receiver gave a verbal commitment to the USC Trojans this summer where his father Tee Martin is an assistant coach. Martin was the quarterback on the BCS National Championship team at Tennessee in 1998.

The coaching staff on Rocky Top certainly seems interested in the Scout three-star prospect's talent and hosted him for a practice on Haslam Field in August and for the Oklahoma game two weeks ago.

On the field, Rodgers continues to put up some flashy numbers for the Catholic Irish.

In a 35-17 win over Notre Dame on Sept. 11, Rodgers caught three passes for 218 yards and two TDs with eight rushes for 112 yards and a 93-yard punt return for a score.

Catholic is out to 2-3 start with a road trip to Belfry, Kentucky, this week.
