Four-star wide receiver Amari Rodgers of Knoxville (TN) Catholic committed to Clemson over his finalists Tennessee, Florida State, Wake Forest and Alabama on Valentine's Day on his personal Periscope account.

Rogers chose Clemson while showing off a Clemson shirt and hat combo with the "We Too Deep" rap song playing as two family members danced happily in the background (see video below).

"This college decision had to do with more than just football: Academics, the fan base, the atmosphere," Rodgers said right before his decision. "The school I will be choosing had all these. I love this school very deeply. I will be committing to Clemson University."

He had national offers from Alabama, California, Clemson, Florida State, Tennessee, USC, Middle Tennessee State, Ohio, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, Duke and LSU.

Rodgers, who committed to USC last summer, helped Catholic win the state championship last fall 48-4 over Pearl-Cohn in which he had an 82-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, a 43-yard scoring reception and an interception.

Clemson wide receivers coach and co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott offered Rodgers in early December. Rodgers, the son of USC staffer and former Tennessee quarterback Tee Martin, then set up a Clemson visit on Jan. 30.

He is friends with 5-star quarterback and Clemson commit Hunter Johnson and 5-star Clemson wide receiver target Tee Higgins and all three elite prospects prefer to play on the same team in college.


Rodgers won the Class 4A Mr. Football Back of the Year as a junior with 2511 all-purpose yards and scored 31 total touchdowns including 1600 receiving yards with 23 receiving touchdowns, two punt returns for touchdowns, two kickoff return touchdowns, three rushing touchdowns and an interception return for a touchdown.

He is the seventh verbal commit in the 2017 class for Clemson.
