National analyst believes UK commit Justin Rogers is the No. 3 recruit in America



Kentucky might have a top-three prospect committed for 2020, and I’m not talking about basketball.

This morning, national football recruiting guru Mike Farrell of released a list of his five favorite high school prospects in the country, and UK football commit Justin Rogers made the cut.

In fact, if the recruiting rankings were up to him, the future Wildcat would be ranked No. 3 overall.

“This might surprise a lot of people but I really like Justin Rogers and was blown away with what I saw from him when he played defensive tackle at the Future 50,” he said. “He was so dominant and quick he just looked like a prospect who will dominate in high school and if defense doesn’t work out, he could be an elite guard. He’s physical and I love his film as well.”

Yes, you read that correctly. A national recruiting analyst believes a Kentucky football commitment is the third-best recruit in the country.

Rogers, who is rated as Rivals’ No. 14 prospect in the class of 2020, chose the Wildcats back in May over offers from Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, Florida, LSU, Ohio State, and Michigan, among others. 247Sports lists the 6-foot-4, 315-pound prospect as the No. 55 recruit in the nation and has him at No. 43 overall on their Composite rankings.

Check out some of his highlights from last season:

Go Cats.

    Has he signed with us yet? Until then, I hesitate to call him “ours”, especially in light of the recruiting crazy-season we see right before the signing deadline. You can bet that Saban and the other big boys will be blowing up his phone. Hope he stays Blue!

      The difference with this guy is that he’s visited Alabama and Georgia and after those visits committed to UK…he’s not like a lot of others who committed to UK that were under the radar and then blew up and the big boys came after him…I think he sticks with UK

    Signing day can’t cone soon enough; we stumble a couple times on the field and we’ll lose a handful of these kids.

    Wow. Poor guys on the other side of the football from him. Has to be miserable to line up across from him for a full game and he clearly has bad intentions when he makes contact.
