Rogers is rated as the No. 71 overall player in the 2018 class by ESPN, and the No. 4 ranked dual-threat quarterback.
Rogers chose the Horned Frogs over in-state LSU and North Carolina after cutting his list to three from a top seven of TCU, North Carolina, LSU, Tennessee, Oregon, Louisville and Harvard. TCU now has seven total commitments, three of which are in the ESPN 300.
TCU was on Rogers early, and it made all the difference in the world.
“It came down to my relationship with my (TCU) coaches,” Rogers said during a press conference at Parkway on Wednesday night. “It was the first school my mom visited, and they fell in love with her quickly.”
This is such a huge pickup for TCU. You can watch the video of his commitment embedded in the article.
He threw for nearly 2,700 yards and had 26 passing touchdowns last season and ran for more than 550 yards and nine TDs.
In all, four TCU start times have been announced, including the September 9th matchup against Arkansas.
TCU announced kickoff times and telecast affiliations for three of its 2017 home football games Wednesday, with the Horned Frogs’ matchup against Baylor set for an 11 a.m. start on Black Friday, Nov. 24 (FS1).
In addition, the Sept. 2 opener against Jackson State in Fort Worth will be played at 7 p.m. (FSSW). The Sept. 16 contest against SMU is set for a 2:30 p.m. start in Amon G. Carter Stadium (ESPNU).
Cam Warner is stepping into the big hole Luken Baker left in the lineup. The second baseman has been great all year, and now even more will be expected of him.
“He kind of leaves some big shoes to fill,” Warner said. “I’m not trying to live up to his style of play. I’m just trying to play my style of baseball and help the team as I can.”
Warner is a career .292 hitter with 11 home runs, 26 doubles, a .411 slugging percentage and 91 RBIs in 124 games at TCU heading into the start of the Fort Worth Regional on Friday.
