Rodgers emerged as one of the the most coveted recruits to come out of Southern Maryland in several years and backed up the hype by helping the Rams to a nine-win regular season and SMAC co-championship. He played in the Under Armour All-America game and the Chesapeake Bowl and was also recently named an honorable mention All-American by Parade magazine.
Rodgers had suitors across the country and eventually narrowed his list to South Carolina, Washington and Maryland. He had planned to make his pick during the Under Armour All-America game on Jan. 4 but ultimately delayed his announcement an extra three weeks. In the end, he orally committed to the Gamecocks, who he had listed as his front-runner late in the process.
