Rogers Felt Wanted at Toledo

National Recruiting Analyst
Posted Jun 25, 2012


Detroit Cass Tech (Mich.) junior cornerback DeJuan Rogers talks about his commitment to Toledo.

Last week, the Toledo Rockets landed a big part of their 2013 class in 6'1, 180-lb defensive back DeJuan Rogers, who came to the Rockets' satellite camp in Wyandotte to make the commitment official.

"It feels great," he said. "I'm glad I made the decision. The coaches showed me a lot of love and this is a great place to be."

Rogers had six other offers, but says a lot felt right about Toledo.

"I chose Toledo because it was one of the best places I've seen. I didn't see every school that offered me, but I liked Toledo and I liked how Coach Campbell was really involved in my recruitment."

Rogers will start out as a corner, but can also play safety if necessary. He believes the coaching staff can get him to his full potential, and the effort they put into his recruitment was a large part of his decision.

"Coach McDonald, he's a great guy. That's who I was really talking to at first and then Coach Campbell, he did a great job as a head coach because he was talking to me, which other head coaches didn't do and we talked and that's when I really knew that Toledo really liked me."
