A STRONG FOUNDATION There's no doubt Ohio State continues to lead the recruitment of Oak Park, Michigan, four-star offensive guard Justin Rogers. He hasn't been shy about his affinity for the program following three unofficial visits last fall, and his trip to Columbus this weekend — which began early Friday morning — didn't wrap up until late this afternoon. “It was real good,” Rogers told Eleven Warriors. “We're just building a relationship, you know? Just being around each other more and stuff. It's a real good relationship.” That's important, given former assistant defensive coordinator Kerry Coombs was Rogers' lead recruiter until he recently accepted a job with the NFL's Tennessee Titans. One of his main recruiting areas was Michigan, and maintaining those relationships will be key for the staff moving forward. “Me and him and a real good relationship,” Rogers said. “We still do. But it's like there's other coaches on the staff recruiting me, too.” The 6-foot-4, 265-pound Rogers is considered the top-rated offensive guard and the No. 25 prospect overall in the Class of 2020, and he already holds two dozen offers from programs such as Cincinnati, Florida State, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Oregon, Pittsburgh and Tennessee. But I'd honestly be surprised if he doesn't eventually choose Ohio State. “It's like the winning and how the program is,” Rogers said. “They love winning, and I love winning, too.” So how does a brief visit turn into a four-day weekend getaway? “It's just the coaches. They're friendly,” Rogers said. “They just want me to enjoy my time here and enjoy the process. Just have fun and take it slow.” That said, Rogers is in no hurry to make a decision on his future. He's already planning trips this spring to Austin, Iowa City, Lincoln and Tallahassee, with a decision likely to come sometime during his junior season.
