Texas offers 4-star Louisiana QB Justin Rogers

Texas is looking to make a late push with the explosive Louisiana product.


Despite trying to trim things in his recruitment down, Justin Rogers, one of the nation’s top dual-threat quarterbacks, continues to see offers roll in with the latest coming from the Texas Longhorns Thursday morning.

A four-star prospect out of Parkway (La.), Rogers released his top seven on March 1, naming TCU, North Carolina, Tennessee, Louisville, Oregon, LSU and Harvard as schools still being considered. The list cut came just days after Rogers visited the Forty Acres for Texas’ junior days, although he didn’t pick up a Longhorns offer until today — a full month later — so it remains to be seen if the ‘Horns jumped into the mix too late.

A prototype passer in comparison to the quarterbacks that have typically found success under Texas head coach Tom Herman, Rogers utilized his dual-threat ability to the tune of 2,646 yards and 26 touchdowns through the air and another 566 yards and nine scores with his legs. Considering the current depth concerns in the quarterback room and the lack of assurance Texas has on the market with regards to securing a 2018 quarterback commit thus far, expect Herman and the staff to try and get Rogers back on campus at some point in the spring.

At 6’3.5, 198 pounds, Rogers ranks as the nation's No. 253 player, No. 11 dual-threat quarterback and the No. 9 player in Louisiana, per 247Sports Composite.
