Justin Rogers is a 2020 recruit that has already got the attention of some big programs. Kentucky was the first to extend an offer to the 6’3″ 265 lb. freshman at Oak Park. Oak Park has been a talent pool that Kentucky has major interest in. Four players including Rogers and his fellow lineman Marquan McCall (4-star class of ’18 guard that is ranked 3rd in the nation in his position), dual threat quarterback in the class of ’19 Dwan Mathis, and classmate Enzo Jennings all have offers from Kentucky. Justin was kind enough to do a short interview with me and I wanted to share it with all of you. Go follow him @justinr61966954.
