Cass Tech DB commits to Toledo

6/20/2012

Detroit Cass Tech is loaded with Division I talent, and Toledo was able to pluck one of the program's 2013 prospects Wednesday.

Three-star cornerback DeJuan Rogers committed to the Rockets while at their camp, choosing Toledo over offers from Buffalo, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Northern Illinois, Syracuse and Western Michigan.

"They showed me the most interest (and) I really like the fact that their head coach was really involved in my recruitment," Rogers wrote in a text message.

The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Rogers is the 16th-best player in Michigan and 51st among cornerbacks.

Rogers' former Cass Tech teammate Kishon Wilcher, son of Tech coach Thomas Wilcher, will be a sophomore at Toledo this fall.

Toledo is putting together a solid class already, as Rogers represents the Rockets' sixth commitment and fourth three-star prospect.
