Khamauri Rogers breaks down his interest in the Florida Gators

With the 2021 class pretty much done now, the Florida Gators coaching staff has turned most of their attention to the 2022 class.

2022 defensive back Khamauri Rogers (6-1, 165, Lexington, MS. Holmes County) is one of those guys the staff is after hard and he says he talks to his position coach the most.

“They’ve been recruiting me pretty hard over my recruitment,” Rogers said of Florida. “I just talk to Coach [Torrian] Gray right now.”

Defensive backs coach Torrian Gray has explained to Rogers just how he would be used in the Gators defense if he comes to Florida.

“He just says he likes my game and he would love for me to be a Gator,” he said on Gray’s message to him. “He likes me at corner and I think I would fit in good in Florida’s defense.”

Earlier this month Rogers decomitted from LSU and he says his interest in the Gators is high because of a few reasons in particular.

“My interest in Florida is very high,” Rogers said on his interest in Florida. “I like the swagger about the team and I know the defensive back tradition in from the school. Vernon Hargreaves, CJ Henderson and there’s plenty more.”

The Gators aren’t the only team after Rogers hard as several schools are recruiting him hard but he doesn’t plan to make a decision anytime soon.

“Georgia, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Oregon, Miami, Texas A&M are recruiting me hard,” he said on other schools recruiting him hard. “I will not be making a decision anytime soon, I will sign in December and enroll early next year.”
