Dawgs Pick Up Calhoun Receiver

Georgia picked up a verbal commitment from Da'Rick Rogers, a 6-3 receiver from Calhoun High School today. Rogers is currently ranked as the #4 wide receiving prospect in the class of 2010 and had 66 catches for 1300 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2008. Rogers had narrowed his choices down to Georgia and Florida, and I sure am glad he has decided to stay in state. Scout.com had this to say about Rogers:

Overall, Rogers is an impressive physical specimen and at times looks like a Calvin Johnson-type player. He is aggressive, makes plays and presents some difficult one-on-one mismatches for opposing defenses. Excellent prospect. - Read the rest of the evaluation here

I saw Rogers play in the AA State Championship game last fall. Buford was clearly a better team than Calhoun, but Rogers made some amazing plays that kept his team in the game. Welcome to the Dawg nation, Da'Rick. I look forward to see you catching passes in Sanford Stadium beginning in the fall of 2010.
