Snodgrass, Rogers amped after OSU visit

9/16/2012

Thaddeus Snodgrass (Springfield, Ohio/Springfield) and Devon Rogers (Hilliard, Ohio/Hilliard Davidson) picked a great day to make some memories.

The duo out of the 2014 recruiting class were on hand for Ohio State’s game against Cal and watched the Buckeyes hang on for a thrilling 35-28 win at The Horseshoe.

“It was a lot of fun,” Rogers, a safety, said. “I talked to the coaches before and after. The experience was just great. Everybody should get to experience that. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime thing.”

Especially for Snodgrass, who got a little excited when Devin Smith made a 72-yard reception in the final four minutes to beat Cal.

A wide receiver with offers from many BCS schools, not even Snodgrass expected the noise coming from Ohio Stadium.

“It was crazy,” Snodgrass said. “Everyone was up out of their seats when we made the catch. Everyone in the whole stadium got loud.”

While Snodgrass has an offer, Rogers is still waiting for his, though he knows he’s making a positive impression on the Ohio State staff.

“The coaches talked to me a lot and told me to keep up what I’m doing,” he said. “I get a lot of mail from them and talk to them all the time.”

Rogers has tentative plans to come back Saturday for Week 4 with the Buckeyes as well when the squad takes on the University of Alabama-Birmingham.
