"I'm 100% solid," Rodgers said. "My commitment is solid as a rock."
The Elkton (Md.) Tri-State Christian Academy offensive lineman will take his official visit to USC in mid-January and says he "can't wait" for the experience.
A four-star recruit, Rodgers was the second 2013 player to commit to USC from Tri-State Christian Academy after five-star defensive tackle Kenny Bigelow.
"He's like my brother," Rodgers explained, saying USC fit them both "perfectly."
As with any sibling relationship, Rodgers says he and Bigelow even fight like brothers - Rodgers often coming up on the winning side.
And as for that 7-6 USC season?
"That's just more opportunity for us to come in and help," Rodgers said.
