Michigan football hosted 5-star offensive lineman Justin Rogers this weekend and below are some crucial tidbits that have come out his go to with the Wolverines.
Rogers, who is the top rated-rated recruit in the condition of Michigan from the 2020 recruiting course and the No. 16 participant all round in the 2020 course in accordance to 247 athletics, attended the recreation among the Wolverines and the Spartans.
Wolverines Wire caught up with Rogers and spoke to him about his go to, which was the 2nd straight week that he was in Ann Arbor. Rogers also watched the Michigan basketball crew acquire on Maryland.
Of system, the end result on the court docket wasn’t that fantastic, but that shouldn’t influence the Wolverines recruitment of Rogers. One particular issue that Rogers explained to Wolverines Wire was that Michigan football was selecting up its stage of interaction with Rogers, which the 5-star mentioned was critical.
“I’d say yeah, they text me each and every day. Michigan’s stepping up. They’re trying to create that romance. I would say Michigan is recruiting me like – they want me there due to the fact I’m an in-condition kid. But they want me. (They’re indicating), ‘Just do what you are executing.”
The enhanced interaction is a very good issue due to the fact it appears like Rogers felt a small disrespected by the way the Wolverines at first approached his recruitment and possibly that is why Georgia and Ohio State are the favorites right now, while UM appears to be to be getting ground.
Yet another issue I identified intriguing is that Rogers used a whole lot of time with new offensive coordinator Josh Gattis over the weekend as the mentor dove into what Rogers could do and his function would be in just the offense.
Rogers mentioned that Gattis pointed out how many veterans UM has together the offensive line and that is accurate. Michigan football will be graduating most of its starters in the up coming two several years and with Ben Bredeson leaving right after 2019, Rogers would have a very good chance to phase in and commence right absent.
At this position, it is tricky to inform how substantially ground Michigan is producing up with Rogers. However, you wouldn’t imagine a participant would go to a university for two months in a row until he was at the very least thinking of it as an alternative.
Ideal now, Michigan is powering, but if issues maintain going the way they have, it appears to be like there is however time to catch up.
