Rodgers-AZ-McG.jpgName: Khaliel Rodgers

Position: Offensive Line

Class: Redshirt Freshman

Size: 6-foot-3

Age: 20

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."
