Jayce Rogers Commits to WVU


By Jeffery Cobb

The Mountaineers got one of their “Most Wanted” in the 2018 Recruiting Class this afternoon.

2018 Valdosta, Georgia CB Jayce Rogers made the long trek up to Morgantown for West Virginia’s Showtime Camp this weekend, and the trip paid off as the 5-foot-9, 175-pound athlete pledged his commitment to the Mountaineers.

WVU has been courting Rogers for about 5 months dating back to when new Defensive Backs coach Doug Belk was hired.

Belk immediately made the rounds among the Georgia high schools, and one of his first contacts was with Valdosta HS, where he fell in love with Rogers and offered him back on February 15.

Then it just was a matter of getting him up to Morgantown so he could check out the program and see if it was a place he could spend the next four years. He chose the Mountaineers over Iowa, Colorado State, Tulane, USF, Southern Miss, Marshall, FAU, Cincinnati and others.

Rogers is a smaller corner than the Mountaineers have recruited lately, but his elite athleticism and competitiveness was enough to sell Tony Gibson and crew that he could compete in the Big 12.

BlueGoldNews will have more from the commitment so stay tuned.

    Another smallish Georgia CB….Hope he’s another PacMan.

    Well, in most ways!

    I do think Rogers is a little underrated. He really reacts well to the ball, and I think his fundamentals are good. More in our Verbal View article on him.

    Welcome to Mountaineer Nation. You’ll love it. Now, please help us recruit other Peach state brothers like your LB teammate and let’s go after Big XII titles and bigger titles.
