4-star wide receiver Amari Rogers from Knoxville, Tennessee decommitted from USC on Wednesday night according to his Twitter account.
“After reflecting back on my 2015 season and consulting with individuals that are close to me, I have decided to re-open my recruitment. USC will still continue to be one of my top choices, but I think it is best that I choose where I will be attending college without being committed,” Rodger’s tweeted.
Clemson offered the prospect on Monday when Jeff Scott visited Knoxville Catholic. The Tigers are very high on his list of schools, and he plans to visit Clemson again. Rogers attended last year's Dabo Swinney football camp.
Rodgers had been committed to Southern Cal since 6/25/15, and his main USC recruiter is his father who is former Tennessee quarterback and current USC assistant coach Tee Martin.
He was just named Mr. Football Division I Class 4A Back and the explosive playmaker helped his team win the state championship 48-8 over Pearl-Cohn.
As a junior, he had 61 receptions for 1,570 yards and 31 touchdowns.
