A number of impressive Class of 2013 prospects made their way to Auburn last weekend for the Tiger's summer camp. Coming from Delaware was offensive lineman Khaliel Rodgers of Bear (Del.) Red Lion Christian Academy, who was impressed by the experience.
"I think it was a top-notch camp," said Rodgers, who is 6-foot-3 and 300-pounds. "A lot of top prospects were there and it really showed me how southern football is."
Competing against top-level competition, Rodgers was pleased with his performance.
"I did great," said Rodgers, who holds an offer from Connecticut. "There is always room for improvement, but going against upcoming seniors, that are getting recruited heavily, I stood out very well."
Rodgers' performance also seemed to impress the Auburn coaching staff.
"I talked with both line coaches and the safety coach and they all liked how I performed," said Rodgers. "They especially liked the go-hard mentality that I have. That really stood out to me."
This early in his recruiting process, Rodgers is happy with how everything is progressing.
"Well, so far I have one offer and a lot of looks, but as long as I keep God first and work hard every day, more will come," said Rodgers, who was asked which other school may be close to offering. "Rutgers. They are showing a lot of interest."
