UCLA Could Be In Mix For Quarterback Armani Rogers

Oct. 23 -- Los Angeles (Calif.) Hamilton quarterback Armani Rogers committed to Cal way back in February but Wednesday night, the signal caller decided to open up his recruitment...

Yankee quarterback Armani Rogers has been a long time commitment to Cal, announcing shortly after Signing Day this past February. 

Over the summer, new schools continued to court Rogers but he remained rock solid with the Bears. That all changed Wednesday night when Rogers tweeted out his de-commitment, calling it a mutual agreement between the two party's.

"I just want to make sure I'm doing the right thing," Rogers said. "It really was a mutual understanding between me and Cal. There's no negative feelings there, nothing bad happened on either side and I'm still going to continue to look at Cal moving forward.

"It's a big decision and I just want to be sure I'm doing the right thing. There are quite a few schools showing interest right now and I'm going to sit down and try and figure out what schools I want to visit."

One school who offered over the summer that Rogers said he's still talking with is UCLA.

"I took a visit over the summer and liked it there," Rogers said. "I have remained in contact with them, we're still talking and I do have interest. I know Cal is coming down to play UCLA tonight at the Rose Bowl but I won't be able to make it. I have a game tomorrow and that's where my focus is but I'll watch it on  T.V.

"There are a few Mountain West schools still talking to me as well and hopefully a few more schools will jump in now that I'm no longer committed. Like I said, I haven't quite figured everything out yet but I'm going to get on that very shortly here."

Rogers is a big, strong dual threat quarterback who physically, reminds us of former Oaks Christian standout and current Arizona QB Brandon Dawkins. He has a strong arm and get the ball down the field and throws very well outside the pocket as well. He still needs time to develop other areas of his game but the physical tools he has are obvious.
