This shouldn’t come as a surprise to most, but 2020 in-state 4-star Justin Rogers committed to Kentucky on Monday night.
I first would like to thank every last coach that recruited me. I want to thank all my friends, family and faculty staff at my high school for supporting me during this process, but the wait is over... after my senior season I’ll be further my education and football career at... pic.twitter.com/PuDLOYPulq— Justin Rogers (@AllAmerican52JR) May 20, 2019
The 6-foot-2.5, 311-pound offensive guard was choosing from his top five schools that included Michigan, which is notable considering how he had previously left the Wolverines off of a top 13 list earlier in his recruitment.
Alas, despite hard work from Ed Warinner, he could not pull off the win for the No. 1 player in the state, who was thought to previously had Ohio State, Georgia and Tennessee as his leaders at one point during his recruitment.
Michigan has two lineman in its class who probably project to the interior of the line in Zak Zinter and Micah Mazzccua, and will look to add a pure tackle or two this cycle.
