Speedy 2023 WR Noah Rogers (6-3 185) of Rolesville (NC) is seeing his recruitment heat up and that includes conversations with the Clemson coaching staff. As a result, Rogers was at Clemson for head coach Dabo Swinney’s high school camp on June 6th.
Rogers, who was one of the standouts at the UC Report Charlotte camp, has plenty of ACC and SEC schools interested in his abilities. His offer list includes USC, Duke, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Michigan State, NC State, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Oregon, Penn State, Virginia Tech and West Virginia, and more offers are certainly headed his way after last weekend.
He is ranked #243 in the 247Sports composite rankings and Clemson wide receivers coach Tyler Grisham reached out to him to make the initial contact.
“He got to know me a little bit, but not too much,” Rogers recalled. “I called him later that night so he can get to know me a little better because practice was just about to start, and I told him some things what I’m about and what I like to do and what kind of player I am. And then me and him had a FaceTime call with my mom a couple weeks ago. He told me it’s more than about football. That they’re really big on the Lord, the man above, and that they’re big on raising great young men to be good people in life and that there’s just more than just football and what they can do for you and after football.”
When asked about his growing offer list, Rogers blushed that the attention is flattering.
“I really am just taking it one step at a time,” the rising junior says. “I didn’t expect it to go this far, but I’m really just blessed about it and make sure I’m staying humble. And just trying to make sure I can maintain everything and not be overwhelmed by all the schools that are being in contact with me and that I’m getting noticed by.”
His performance at the camp in Charlotte was a chance for him to showcase his talents.
“I think it was a great experience to go because it’s always good to see where you’re at and what you can do to get better and I think I did pretty well,” Rogers noted in sizing up his performance at the camp. “I came in there and my set where I have to go hard because everybody here for a reason and a top prospect and I just got to show what I can do and see where I’m at and showcase my talents.”
Rogers said Grisham hasn’t talked about an offer, but he knows his performance in front of the Clemson coaches could change that.
“We haven’t really spoken about offers yet. But I know that he saw that he could teach me and what my weakness are, what he sees from his standpoint of view. Probably over time he will offer,” Rogers said.
What are his thoughts on Grisham?
“I think he’s a great coach and he’s obviously coached a lot of great receivers that have come through over time and I think that his coaching style fits me well.”
In the spring of 2021, Rogers helped Rolesville to a 9-1 record and a North Carolina 4AA state runner-up finish. In 10 games, he caught 31 passes for 660 yards and 11 touchdowns.
