Massillon (Ohio) Washington three-star wide receiver Reggie Rogers lives in Big Ten country, but his first offer from the Conference comes from one of the new East Coast additions.
"I got Rutgers," Rogers said. "I still haven't talked to them, but they talked to my head coach. That was real huge just with them joining into the Big Ten and being able to play against great competition if I went there."
For Rogers Rutgers is offer No. 6 and he will start the process of looking into whether the program is a fit for him now that he has the offer.
"I need to start doing research as soon as I can," Rogers said. "With them joining the Big Ten they will probably have more televised games, more exposure. This is an offer I have interest in and I'll make sure, as soon as I can, to go out and visit."
Previous offers had come in from Cincinnati, Kentucky and Toledo, while Buffalo, and Western Michigan have joined his list this spring as well.
The next step in Rogers' recruitment will be summer camps. He plans to head up to Michigan State on June 1 and Ohio State on June 21.
