Two visits, two offers for Rodgers

A few weeks ago, reported that Butte QB Jordan Rodgers (6-2, 210) was prepared to take his visit to Kansas. However, that same week, head coach Mark Mangino resigned and that put his recruiting into flux. This past weekend, the talented signal-caller visited two different schools and came away with two offers so now it's decision-making time...

"I took a split visit this past weekend," Rodgers told on Tuesday. "I visited Western Kentucky on Friday and then on Sunday I went to Vanderbilt to see them.

"Both of them offered me on my visit so now I'll just need to get home and talk with my family and my coaches and then I'll make my decision."

Rodgers said he was flattered when both schools offered, but because they play in the SEC, Vanderbilt obviously has a little more going for it.

"That's tough to compete with," Rodgers admitted. "But there is a good opportunity at both and I really liked both places a lot."

Rodgers 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 Wednesday (Dec. 16th). He'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
