Mickey Plyler on Rodgers: This is a special young man. He is short and his body looks more like a running back, but Rodgers is special. He is exactly what Clemson was looking for in replacing Artavis Scott. Rodgers has explosive bursts in space. He catches the ball well and even though he is short, he jumps through the roof and high points the football. On top of all that, he is a natural leader. He has that high character intangibles that Artavis brought to the table.

Reminds Plyler of: Artavis Scott, Ray Ray McCloud

Clemson offered on 12/7/15. He committed to USC on 6/25/15.
