Kentucky commit Justin Rogers on official visit to Alabama



Just under one month ago, offensive guard Justin Rogers announced his commitment to Kentucky. The Michigan native became one of the highest ranked recruits in the history of the Kentucky Football program.

At the time, Rogers said that his recruitment was shut down, but later announced that he would take one more official visit.

It was no secret that this visit would be to Alabama. This weekend, that visit came to fruition as the top commit in the class of 2020 made the visit to the Tide.

Like Jared Lorenzen said on KSR this past week, you cannot blame him for taking a visit to Alabama. The former UK quarterback added that facility wise, there is not a big difference between the two schools, but it is no secret what the Tide have that the Cats don’t; championships.

Rogers making this visit really could mean nothing at all. It is very possible that he comes out this week and doubles down on Kentucky.

If Rogers does decide to come to Lexington, it is no secret what he could bring to Stoops and company. For each prospect that 24/7 Sports rates, they give a specific rating/prediction on what their career will turn out to be. For example, they call recent Kentucky commit John Young a “Power Five Starter.” Rogers’ prediction is even better. The site says he is already a projected second round NFL pick. That fact alone should excite Kentucky fans.

We will hopefully know more about his visit and what is next for Kentucky in his recruitment soon, but I think it is safe to say that no news would be good news.

    If he had any conversation, what so ever with Butch Jones, UK is still in good shape.

    The ncaa needs to change recruiting rules. The current system teaches kids that commitments mean nothing.

      The rule is that once the player officially commits by signing the LOI, they cannot be recruited by other schools. A verbal commitment isn’t something that even exists, as far as the NCAA is concerned.

      And how many thousands of people “commit” to each other for life and are no longer married. Some divorce after 20 years and some 20 days. Is life now days and not because of the NCAA.

      Not worried. From the pics, he looks fairly miserable.

    Dudes like “Will you marry me?”
    Girls says yes….
    One week later guys like “I’m officially visiting a girl who talked to me once but didn’t act like she really wanted me until I got engaged”
    Girls like “Ok I’ll be waiting”

    I’m saying “have a good time, Justin Rogers, but don’t have TOO good of a tine.” Lol.

    Want to see him in UK Blue until he tells me otherwise.

    Love JLoad, but none of those championships belong to the current recruits. Alabama has past championships. I’m looking at the future of UK and getting THEM to a championship. DHarris’ name in college football lore is nothing compared to what Rogers’ name will be when he helps UK to an SEC title.

    If you are old enough to remember Gomer Pyle USMC, wouldn’t Sgt Carter be the perfect actor to play Butch Jones in a movie about his life. “Champions of Life” starring Sgt Vince Carter as Butch Jones.
