Rogers has Kentucky No. 1 after visit
Massillon (Ohio) Washington three-star Reggie Rogers made his first visit to Kentucky since last fall, and emerged with a clear No. 1.
"Kentucky, they are my No. 1 school right now," Rogers said. "I got to watch the practice today and the position coach, Derrick Ansley, working with him would be amazing. I would love to play under him with his résumé and how young he is too, he'll know everything I am going through and can relate to everything."
Rogers also received positive feedback about Ansley when he talked with one of the current Wildcat, sophomore cornerback Blake McClain.
"That was a real good talk and he said how much of a good coach Coach Ansley is and how the coaching staff is there on and off the field and wants the best for you," Rogers said.
Rogers' recruiting contact at Kentucky is assistant coach Vince Marrow, another Ohio native that he has built a strong relationship with.
"The first thing I did when I got down here was talked to Coach Marrow," Rogers said. "The first thing he told me was when they watched film on me the entire staff watched it, not just one coach. He said that is rare that happens."
The 6-foot, 185-pound Rogers is ranked as the No. 71 wide receiver prospect in the 2015 class, but Kentucky projects him to a different position.
"At Kentucky they want me for defense," Rogers said. "They see me coming in there early and playing the Nickel or something like that. When I got up there they were shocked at how big I got. I went to the Louisville game last year and wasn't as big as I am now."
Rutgers and Cincinnati are the other two contenders in this recruitment, but Rogers said he expects to have a "quick decision" that will likely take place before the start of his senior season.
