With unofficial visits to Wake Forest and Clemson remaining on the recruiting schedule for the month of November, Elijah Rodgers continues to develop a clearer picture of his college future.
The Blacksburg (Blacksburg, SC) defensive back/quarterback will be in Winston-Salem on the 19th and “Death Valley” on the 26th.
Earlier this year, Rodgers took unofficial visits to North Carolina (Nov. 5), South Carolina (Oct. 1 and Sept. 17), BYU (Sept. 24) and Clemson (April 6).
“The fans are incredible for all four colleges and they’re prime time teams playing some very good football,” Rodgers said of these unofficial trips. “The atmosphere is amazing and they’re all great schools to be around. I’d say that the way UNC and BYU builds relationships stands out to me the most.”
The junior also spent time at Coastal Carolina earlier this year when he attended a camp on June 13 and took an unofficial visit on April 9.
This past Thursday, Rodgers announced his invitation to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Combine, which is being held on Jan. 5 to Jan. 7, 2017 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
He holds scholarship offers from BYU, East Carolina and Bryant, and projects as a slot defensive back at the next level for the 2018 recruiting class.
With a background as a run-pass-option quarterback, the athlete provides a dynamic understanding of offensive concepts and schemes.
High points the football in coverage and possesses tackling traits of a safety.
