Mickey Plyler on Rogers: "This is a four-star, top 100 kind of prospect. Rogers surprised some Georgia supporters when he chose Clemson early over the Bulldogs. This is one of the top signees in this class. This is what outside linebackers are supposed to look like. Rogers drops into coverage well and can rush the passer. He played in one of the top programs in the state of Georgia against a high level of competition. Clemson needs help at the SAM linebacker and I think he could compete right away."
