Cupid will be busy Sunday but the most important arrow of the day to Clemson fans will be launched by wide receiver Amari Rodgers (5-foot-10, 180 pounds) of Knoxville, Tenn.
Rodgers has chosen Valentine's Day at Noon to announce his college commitment, and he's down to Clemson, Tennessee, Florida State, Alabama and Wake Forest.
Rodgers is the son of former Tennessee star quarterback and current Southern Cal assistant coach Tee Martin. He was once committed to the Trojans but reopened his recruiting and started looking at other schools. He was at Clemson's junior day Jan. 30 and got a good feeling for the program and the school.
"My visit to Clemson was good, it was a great experience and I met a lot of great people there," Rodgers said. Learned a lot also. I'm looking for a family based organization, where they are all one and care about each other. Also academics of course. And the environment around it, if I could see myself happy there if I weren't playing football."
Never miss a local story.
Rodgers was one of the top players in the country as a junior and was a Mr. Football in Tennessee. He had 2511 all purpose yards and scored 31 touchdowns in five different ways. He had 1570 receiving yards with 23 touchdowns, 2 punt returns for touchdowns, 2 kickoff returns for scores, 3 rushing touchdowns and he scored once on a pass interception return.
