RECRUITING BRIEF: Chris Rogers

While you can find out just so much about watching film on an athlete or talking to him on the phone, there is a major advantage to seeing the athlete live. Here is a look at one of the top Class of 2005 players – Chris Rogers.

FLORIDAKIDS.us CLASS OF 2005 RECRUITING EVALUATION:

While you can find out just so much about watching film on an athlete or talking to him on the phone, there is a major advantage to seeing the athlete live. I have been fortunate to see more high school football players in person in the state of Florida than any other source.

What I will do is use my 30 plus years of evaluating talent on the football field to give up a complete opinion on the top football players in the Class of 2005.

I hope you enjoy this rare look into the football players in the state from a firsthand:

PLAYER: Chris Rogers.
SCHOOL: Lakeland Evangel Christian
POSITION: WR
HEIGHT: 6-0
WEIGHT: 175
www.floridakids.us PRE-SPRING RATING: Not rated.

THE SCOOP ON THIS FLORIDA KID: Another one of the top prospects that this small, Lakeland area private school continues to produce.
EVALUATION: "I have to admit that when I was watching Chris play, I had never even heard of him before. While running back Rod Coby was the player who went into the spring as the main attraction, Rogers certainly has jumped to the front of the line.
"Has exceptional (4.4) speed, breaks on the ball well and comes up to support the run better than most corners. Has gotten it done against some top players, so you know that his skills will translate to the next level."
THE INSIDE STORY: In the state of Florida, athletes like this seem to pop up all summer, so it shouldn't be a surprise that another potential elite athlete should start to receive attention in a state that produced over 300 D-1A players a year ago.
