Countdown to Signing Day...11


One of the bigger storylines heading towards National Signing Day on February 3rd is the commitment of Da'Rick Rogers. The WR prospect out of Calhoun has given his verbal intent to Coach Richt's staff, but the coaches (and the Dawg Nation's frenzied recruitniks) are anxious to see that committed signature on the letter of intent in a week and a half.

As Chad Simmons reports ($$), Rogers visited Athens last weekend and said it was a good one. He tried on the #3 and liked the look. But no one has been able to convince him to stay away from other campuses. Rogers is good friends with his Calhoun QB, Nash Nance. Rogers plans to accompany Nance (a Vandy commit himself) as he visits other schools. Among the laundry lists of programs who could bend Rogers' ear while entertaining Nance are Missy State, Florida and Tennessee.

Georgia's top ranked player has better size (6'3", 208 lbs) and comparable skills to AJ Green and undoubtedly Coach Ball has been able to sell Rogers on the possibility of not just playing in '10 but taking #8's place in the fall of '11. Whether that holds up to the competition remains to be seen. But with a large number of Georgia's commitments on the defensive side of the ball, expect CMR and staff to fight to the very end to keep Rogers on board. Georgia's top prospect is one they can't afford to lose a grip on.

Here's a video of Nance and Rogers discussing their commitments back in June that includes some nice highlights.
