Greg Rogers, one of the area’s top football prospects in the class of 2017, has transferred to Arbor View from Centennial.
“I just felt like Arbor View was a better fit for me,” Rogers said Wednesday. “Their history with the lines they’ve produced and their work ethic, I felt like it was a better place for me my senior year, and I feel like they can make me into a better player. And recruiting-wise, I felt like I could be recruited better.”
Rogers, a 6-foot-4-inch, 311-pound defensive lineman, is a four-star prospect and rated the nation’s No. 3 defensive tackle (No. 45 overall) by Scout.com for the class of 2017. He is the No. 11 defensive tackle and No. 173 overall by Rivals.com.
As a junior at Centennial, Rogers had 64 tackles, 17 tackles for loss and six sacks and was named first-team all-state. Rogers has scholarship offers from more than half of the Pac-12 Conference and also has drawn interest from the likes of Notre Dame, Oregon, Southern California and Texas A&M.
Arbor View went 10-2 this past season and reached the Division I Sunset Region title game. The Aggies clinched the Northwest League title with a 17-14 victory over Centennial in the regular-season finale.
“There’s no bad blood on the move,” Rogers said. “I left Centennial on a great note.”
