Defensive back Latheron Rogers-Anderson of Ridge View spent much of Wednesday learning about Clemson. At the same time, the Clemson coaches were learning about him. Both sides apparently came away pleased with what they learned.
“Right now I’m at the top of their board,” Rogers-Anderson said. “It happened so fast and I’ll have an offer by the end of our spring ball and the start of summer. I sat in on a team meeting and also got a one-of-a-kind tour of the school.”
Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables is investigating several options for his safety positions as he tries to replenish the talent there and now has his eyes on Rogers-Anderson.
“He sees me playing free safety,” Rogers-Anderson said. “They love my ball skills and my physical play. I’ve always heard about Clemson but today opened my eyes. They are at the top of my list with Old Dominion and USC closely behind. Right now if I had it my way I would play for an in-state school, but as always anywhere that blesses me with an offer will be worth me and my family looking into.”
Never miss a local story.
Rogers-Anderson was at USC on Tuesday to watch practice.
“Mostly they were glad to see me again,” he said. “I was watching the free safeties and cornerbacks work and they improve more and more after each practice with T-Rob (Travaris Robinson) and (Will) Muschamp.”
Old Dominion remains the only offer for Rogers-Anderson at this point. He said he doesn’t have any future visits planned.
