Shelby (N.C.) Crest defensive end Dane Rogers claims five offers at this time. A few schools are starting to stick out for the 6-foot-3, 235-pounder even though visits are being put on the back burner right now.
"I just participated in the VTO Combine," he said. "I did well, but I could have done better. I slipped a couple times, but gave 100% effort. The combine went well for me; it was way better than my other combines in late December. My knee wasn't as much of a problem."
On the recruiting front, Rogers isn't really looking into visits yet.

"Not really, if I can take a visit during spring practice I'll probably take one," he said. "More than likely most of my recruitment will start in the summer. When all the offers flow in, I'll see who I have interest from and see what's going on."
Rogers claims five offers from Tennessee, Clemson, NC State, North Carolina and Rutgers.
Does he like anyone?
"I like Clemson," he said. "Clemson put themselves as one of my top five choices. I like them a lot. The thing about Clemson is everything they do is first class. They are a very good academic program and the atmosphere is great. I get a great vibe from there and the defensive coaches are nice. Ever since my cousin signed, we haven't played ball together since we were little. I'm excited for Carlos and looking forward to see what he does in orange and white this season."
Clemson isn't the only school making an impression.
"Florida has been recruiting me a lot more," he said. "We've been talking back and forth lately. They've said they are going to be back and I think they are kind of high. They were the first SEC to contact me and come to my school. They are a heck of a school. I want to check them out sometime this summer."
Rogers noted he would like to look into Tennessee more as well.
In addition, the three-star claims two other programs are starting to move in, LSU and Auburn.
"They've just started messaging me and checking up on me. Hopefully they'll come in and we'll see what happens."
