BATON ROUGE, La. — Justin Rogers made his first visit count in a big way.
The Class of 2018 quarterback immediately garnered the attention of offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and coach Les Miles, resulting in an offer they handed out after Thursday’s inaugural camp session.
Adding an interesting twist, Rogers is entering his first season as the starter at Parkway High School (Bossier City, La.), the alma mater of LSU quarterback Brandon Harris.
The 6-foot-4, 180-pound rising junior is rated as the No. 13 dual-threat passer in the country and the No. 15 overall prospect in Louisiana. He is also both close friends and teammates with 5-star wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr., a major LSU target.
Rogers added multiple offers to his arsenal this spring, including overtures from Arkansas, Mississippi State and Missouri, and he has also received a high level of interest from Texas A&M, where the 3-star talent will be visiting tomorrow. However, as LSU prepares for what’s shaping up to be another two-quarterback class in 2018, Rogers figures prominently into the formula.
