USC has been the favorite of OL Na'Ty Rodgers of Pomfret, MD for the past few months. The Gamecocks are no longer alone.
Rodgers said Tuesday night he now has co-leaders in USC and Maryland. Rodgers was supposed to go on an official visit to Nebraska last weekend but that got postponed, so he went unofficially to Maryland.
"I never really saw the campus and this weekend I took an in depth look, and I liked what I saw," Rodgers said. "I liked the campus life and how everything is set up there. And I would be close to home."
Rodgers also sees the move of Maryland to the Big 10 as a positive for them. "It's a good move for them for recruiting purposes and it should be a good thing," he said. "Everybody always talks about the SEC, but to make a big step forward like that is good to see."
Rodgers planned to talk to USC recruiter GA Mangus Tuesday night. He has taken an official visit to Oklahoma and plans to set other visits with USC, Maryland, Nebraska and maybe Michigan. He is not visiting anywhere this weekend.
