L'ville offer moves Cards up Rogers' list

Wes Rogers, a 6-4, 270-pound offensive lineman from Indianapolis (IN) Lawrence Central, capped a busy week with an offer from Louisville after visiting the Cardinals on Saturday. Rogers spoke with InsideTheVille.com about his recruitment, explaining that one program currently stands out from the pack.

Wes Rogers, a 6-4, 270-pound offensive lineman from Indianapolis (IN) Lawrence Central, capped a busy week with an offer from Louisville Saturday.

Rogers visited three schools last week – Western Michigan Thursday, Ball State Friday and Louisville Saturday – and landed scholarship offers from all three programs. Rogers watched Louisville's practice Saturday morning and received an offer from the Cardinals after practice.

"They gave me an offer when I was down there," Rogers told InsideTheVille.com. "After practice, Coach [Vance] Bedford talked to me and introduced me to Coach Strong, who said he was happy to have me down and Coach Bedford told me they were giving me an offer."

What does Rogers think about his new offer from Charlie Strong's program? "I really like Louisville," Rogers said. "It's a good school, good football and it's close to home. I like the coaches a lot. I really like it."

Rogers spent most of his time Saturday paying close attention to Louisville offensive line coach Dave Borbely. "I really liked how he coaches," said Rogers. "I liked how he was yelling at his players and he seems like he really knows what he's doing," Rogers said. "I spoke to him a lot. I was standing by him during the practice. He said he really wanted someone with my height. He likes me at center or guard."

Rogers' recruitment is rounding into form. Louisville, Western Michigan and Ball State have stepped forward with scholarship offers. Several Big 10 programs have him on their radars and want him to attend camps this summer before extending offers. "A lot of schools want me to go to their one day camps in June," Rogers said. "Michigan State and Iowa only two that are scheduled."

Rogers is planning to attend Louisville's spring game Friday and he's hoping to make a college decision this summer.

"I'm going to try to pick a school before my senior season starts so I don't have to worry about that during the football season," Rogers said. "Louisville is definitely standing out and I would call them my leader. For me, it's all about the coaches and education. I want to be around coaches I really like."
