Rodgers announces commitment to USC


Khaliel Rodgers apparently got the scholarship offer he had long been waiting for.

The offensive lineman from Elkton (Md.) Eastern Christian announced on his Facebook page that he was committed to Southern California.

"So blessed to be committed to USC," he said simply.

He joins teammates Kenny Bigelow and freshman quarterback David Sills as commitments. The two had long said they were campaigning for Rodgers to get an offer as other schools recruited him heavily.

However, the Trojans were slow to offer the four-star prospect, who is considered the 16th best offensive guard in the nation.

Rodgers could not be immediately reached for comment.
