Valdosta cornerback Jayce Rogers excited for upcoming West Virginia visit

WVU leads for this Georgia defensive back.

Valdosta (GA) cornerback Jayce Rogers holds several offers with numerous other programs keeping close tabs on him at the moment. For now, though, the efforts of West Virginia assistant Doug Belk have the Mountaineers at the front of his recruitment. 

"Me and Coach Belk are really close and he hits me up almost every day," said the 5-foot-8, 165-pounder. "We talk or sometimes he will just hit me up to see how I'm doing."

The one thing holding back his recruitment from WVU is that he has yet to visit Morgantown. He intends to change that early in the summer, although no date has been set at this time. When it does get set, it could be some big news for the Mountaineers. 

"I want to see everything WVU has to offer, meeting the coaches and learning about their engineering program, the campus... it's a lot of things that I would like to see," he said. "If WVU has everything to offer, I will commit on the first trip."

Although he admits that West Virginia is his clear leader, Rogers says that "everybody is still in the picture." He holds offers from Iowa, USF, and more. He earned a three-star rating from Scout Recruiting.
