Justin Rogers knows he’s in for a long road ahead to recovery. That doesn’t mean that there won’t be some good news along the way.
Rogers, Louisiana’s top-ranked quarterback, is battling back from a torn ACL which he suffered on Sept. 1. He’s already ahead of schedule in his recovery and received another good piece of news from his doctors on Thursday.
The 4-star quarterback is now able to put weight back on his right knee and has nearly all of the motion back.
The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Under Armour All-American signal caller has been working tirelessly in his rehabilitation ever since undergoing surgery on his knee on Sept. 11. A little more than a month later, he’s ahead of schedule and is certainly on par with his recovery timetable. Rogers expects to be ready to compete during fall camp at a school next summer.
Louisiana’s No. 1 quarterback prospect remains committed to TCU, but he has not been making many visits of late due to his knee injury. Rogers is expected to make all five of his official visits before he graduates from Parkway (La.) High School early and signs his letter of intent in December.
He will make an official visit to LSU on Nov. 24 for the Texas A&M game weekend and will be at TCU on Dec. 15 right before the early signing period.
Rogers remains the top quarterback on the Tigers’ recruiting board for the Class of 2018.
