Rodgers sets visit to Pac 10 school

Being the younger brother of a current NFL starting quarterback can be tough, but Butte QB Jordan Rodgers (6-2, 210) has handled things well. While older brother Aaron is doing his thing in Green Bay, the younger Rodgers is pulling the trigger on one of the most potent offenses in California and he's done so well a Pac 10 school has set up a visit to get him on campus...

Rodgers leads an offensive attack that has racked up 478 yards per game and 51 points per game, but he said this weekend promises to be their biggest challenge yet.

"This weekend we have (San Joaquin) Delta and they have a really talented team and an aggressive defense," Rodgers told on Thursday. "We'll be ready to go, but we can't take anyone lightly. We're defending the national championship, so everyone is bringing their 'A' game every time they play us."

On the season, Rodgers has been outstanding, completing 62% of his passes for 878 yards, nine touchdowns and only one interception. What makes it even more impressive is that he's doing it with a boatload of freshman wideouts who he's just now starting to feel comfortable with.

"We have a bunch of talented guys we brought in and they're making plays," Rodgers noted. "It's getting better every week and I think we have our best football in front of us."

With his hot start this season, Rodgers has garnered some major attention from schools looking for a talented, poised signal-caller who can come in and challenge for time right away.

"I'm visiting Washington State next weekend when we have our bye week (10/10)," Rodgers said. "Kansas and Colorado have talked to me and Mississippi State called and wanted some film, so just put together a four-game cut-up for them.

"Washington State hasn't offered, but they might on the visit. I'm not really sure. If they offer I won't commit right away, but man, playing in the Pac 10 is something most California kids and west coast kids think about so it would be pretty special to have that opportunity."

Rodgers was a full-qualifier out of high school, so he can leave at any time and he plans to sign with a school in December and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
