Though wide receiver Darreus Rogers (6-2, 194, 4.5) from Carson, Calif., has already thrown his hat into the ring and committed to USC that doesn't mean his recruitment is over. The talented wide receiver landed a huge offer today.
"Miami's head coach Al Golden and their tight end coach/recruiting coordinator, Brennan Carroll came by and visited the school today," Carson head coach Elijah Asante said. "They were taking a look at our quarterback, Justin Alo, and D.J. (Rogers) and they offered D.J. Rogers.
"They (Golden and Carroll) said they weren't intimidated by his commitment to USC and that they only recruit guys from out of state who are potential first-round draft choices," Asante said. "D.J. is excited about Miami thinking that much about him, but he is still with USC. He's not going to de-commit, but he's intrigued."
