Rogers Is Focused On Being Great
Greg Rogers does not look like a rising sophomore. The 2017 prospect from the Las Vegas area was a man amongst boys at the Utah State Camp earlier this week. Despite being on the field with a lot of linemen a few years older than him, Rogers stood out earlier and often. "My focus is to be the best player I can possibly be," Rogers explained to me. "Being bigger and stronger than everyone isn't going to work forever. I need to improve my technique. This summer is about my footwork and use of hands. If you look at the best in the game, they are unbeatable because of their fundamentals. I'm also working on my strength. I've put on close to 15 lbs of muscle this offseason and am continuing to work at it." Rogers was impressive at 6'4 260 during the Pylon linemen challenge in Las Vegas in March, but he is even more impressive now. The 2017 prospect brought in his first offer from Utah earlier this spring and is hearing from a few other programs. "Coach Tuiaki offered me from Utah and right now the Utes are my team," Rogers claimed. "They put a lot of faith in me offering me so earlier on. I am going to the Utah Elite Camp and look forward to seeing the school and showing the coaches what kind of player I am. I am also hearing from Arizona a lot and plan to camp with them this summer. There's a chance U of A is the next school that offers me. And other than that, Washington and Florida State seem interested. I'm not too worry about that stuff right now, I am just focused on getting better." Rogers has a nice mean streak to him. At the USU camp he put a few vicious shots on the opposing quarterbacks. He is aggressive and plays until the whistle every snap. There aren't too many 2017 prospects that fire off the ball like Rogers can. He is oozing with potential and could end up a national recruit.
