Rogers is ranked as the No. 30 overall player in the 2020 recruiting class and is the highest-ever prospect ever to commit to Kentucky. In addition to be the top-ranked player from Michigan, Rogers is also the No. 1 offensive guard.

Over 40 schools offered Rogers, including 11 B1G teams.

Michigan currently owns the B1G’s fifth-best recruiting class while Michigan State ranks 10th in the conference. Both programs, as well as the conference, missed out on a big-time target.
