Kansas will get visit from Butte QB

Butte QB Jordan Rodgers (6-2, 210) had a lot to live up to this year after the Roadrunners won the National Championship last fall. While they didn't go that far this year, the talented signal-caller had a solid season and has garnered an offer from a BCS school and interest from a few other four-year programs. JCFootball.com got the scoop on where he's headed this weekend...

"I'm going to Kansas this weekend (December 4th)," Rodgers told JCFootball.com recently. "I'll be visiting them to check out the program and to meet with the coaches. They are my one offer right now and they are a school I'm really interested in.

"Other than them, I'm still pretty much hearing from the same schools I was before. I visited Washington State early on, but I haven't heard from them in a while."

Taking over the reigns of a program that just won the National Championship isn't an easy task, but the poised signal-caller had a solid sophomore season completing 58% of his passes for over 2,400 yards, 18 touchdowns and seven interceptions while leading Butte to an 8-3 record and a 22-15 win over Sierra in the Premier West Bank Bowl.

"For having such a young team, I think we did really well," Rodgers said. "I felt like I got better as the season went along, but we play some really tough and talented teams so overall I'd say it was a productive season and next year, because of all the young guys that played, they should be back on top again."

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 the early signing period which begins on December 16th. He'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.

We'll check back in with Rodgers after his visit to Kansas to find out how things went.
