Sophomore offensive lineman Khaliel Rodgers of Bear (Del.) Red Lion Christian Academy has proven his abilities against upperclassmen over the course of the last year at several events, and now he is beginning to receive the interest that he deserves.
"Recruiting is very good, I believe," said Rodgers, who is 6-foot-3 and 300 pounds. "I'm starting to get a lot more exposure from competing at combines and showcases."
As he mentioned, Rodgers has not been shy with attending events.
"I've been to the Elite Badger Sports Camp, Nike Combines, NUC events and the Under Armour," said Rodgers. "They have helped me a lot to showcase my talents to all the college coaches."
Thus far, the majority of the interest Rodgers has been receiving is coming from Connecticut, Rutgers, Maryland and Penn State. Earlier this year he took a visit to Rutgers, and he has upcoming camps lined up at Ohio State, UConn and in Oregon for a Nike event
"I want to prove that Delaware has athletes just as any other state and that we can compete to be the best as Christian athletes," said Rodgers.
As we head towards the summer, Rodgers has also been busy preparing for his season at Red Lion.
"It's nothing but hard work everyday," said Rodgers. "It's non-stop training on and off the field. No one trains like us in Delaware and it all starts with Flash Training."
