USC commit planning visits

Darreus Rogers said he's still committed to USC and with quarterback Matt Barkley staying for another season his pledge is even stronger but he still plans to take visits in January.
"I do consider myself committed to SC," Rogers said at the Cal State Game.
"Right now things probably won't change. Now that Matt Barkley is staying it gives them even more of an advantage. It's great that I've seen him play for a few years so his last year should be his strongest and smartest so it would be great to come in and play for him."

Arizona State seems like the biggest competition for Rogers, a four-star wide receiver from Carson, Calif., who finished with 64 catches for 1,251 yards and eight touchdowns in his senior season. Rivals.com rates him as the No. 30 wide receiver and No. 194 in the 2012 class.
"They did a house visit and it was great," Rogers said of the new Arizona State staff.
"They run the spread offense and they told me I could come in as a true freshman and shine and be their go-to guy. I'm looking forward to taking that trip and seeing where I fit in that offense."
Rogers, a 6-foot-2, 194-pound prospect prospect, will visit USC on Jan. 13 and then Arizona State the following weekend.
He is also scheduling trips to Oregon and Washington before National Signing Day. UCLA has also stepped up its recruiting efforts but Rogers said nothing about an official visit there yet.
Rogers, rated No. 27 in the California state rankings, has been committed to USC since last January.
"I want to check out the facilities, the jerseys and most of all the academics," Rogers said of Oregon. "(With Washington) I want to take that trip to see if it's a fit for me and I also want to see about the weather up there."
