Position: Offensive Line
Class: Redshirt Freshman
High School: Eastern Christian Academy
Scouting Report: Rodgers appears to fit best at guard where he can maul opponents and spring the running game with his bulky physique. He came into USC without a ton of recent football experience, so he benefited from sitting out his redshirt year. But now, he expects to be a key cog in a retooled offensive line emphasizing physicality under Tim Drevno.
Prep Career: As a senior, Rodgers played an abbreviated three-game schedule at Eastern Christian Academy but was a highly touted prospect as he was named to the Prep Star All-American Dream Team, Rivals Top 100 and Scout 100. He also played in the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
Spring Ball: Rodgers is competing for one of the many open spots on the offensive line and is currently playing with the ones at right guard.
To quote Rodgers: "I can't wait until the spring game comes. It's my first ever college spring ball game so I can't wait."
