2014 Prospect: Devon Rogers

2014 Prospect: Devon Rogers

There were several freshmen in Ohio that made their mark as varsity players last season, and one of them was Devon Rogers who played for Columbus Westland. Rogers has since transferred to Hilliard Darby, and is a player to watch for the class of 2014.

Devon Rogers had an impressive varsity season as a freshman last year at Columbus Westland, starring on both sides of the football and establishing himself as player to watch for the class of 2014 in Ohio.

Rogers, 5-foot-10, 185-pounds, stood out as a wide receiver, catching 22 balls for 397 yards and five touchdowns,but his future probably lies as a defensive back. As a safety, Rogers had 60 tackles with two sacks, three forced fumbles and three interceptions.

"I played safety last year at Westland, but I want to be listed as a cornerback for recruiting," Rogers stated. "I definitely think I'm better on defense than offense, but I will play anywhere my coaches want me to. I think my best strength is my coverage ability."

"I'm going to the Ohio State camp this year, and I did pretty well at the Nike Sparq camp in February," he continued. "I want to go to a bunch of different college camps this summer too, but I don't have them scheduled yet. Being a freshman, colleges cannot contact me yet, but I have received information packets from Texas and Nebraska."

Rogers will play his sophomore season at Hilliard Darby in 2011, after transferring from Columbus Westland.
