Justin Rogers reaffirms commitment to Kentucky

New, comments

This comes after Rogers recently visited Alabama.

When Justin Rogers pledged to Kentucky, it was one of the biggest recruiting wins ever for the program.

However, we all knew it would be challenging for Mark Stoops to hold on to the five-star lineman, especially with teams like Georgia, Michigan and Ohio State in the mix.

Then came word that Rogers was visiting Alabama, the kind of program that can poach a recruit from anyone, and the unease in Lexington immediately grew.

But now, Rogers wants everyone to know he’s still 100% committed to the Wildcats:

Rogers is currently the 12th-ranked recruit at Rivals, who now list him as a defensive tackle. 247 Sports ranks him 45th overall and have him pegged as an offensive guard.

That’s how high of a level he plays on both sides of the ball, which makes getting him to Lexington all the more important for Kentucky’s 2020 class, which is shaping up to be not only the best of the Stoops era, but maybe even the best in program history.
