UNLV coach Tony Sanchez continues to put together the pieces for what may very well be the top recruiting class in the Mountain West Conference this year.
The Rebels landed a verbal commitment from quarterback Armani Rogers of Los Angeles Hamilton High School on Thursday, beating out Fresno State for the athletic 6-foot-5, 205-pounder who has drawn comparisons to former UNLV star Jason Thomas. He has been clocked at 4.72 in the forty.
Rogers, who led the Yankees to the Los Angeles City Section Division II title as a junior, originally committed to Cal before his senior year and also had offers from Colorado State, UCLA, Utah, Washington.
ESPN.com rated Rogers, who threw 18 touchdowns and rushed for 431 yards as a senior, as a 4-star recruit while Rivals.com listed him as a 3-star. He was a second team all-L.A. City pick as a punter as a senior.
Check out highlights of Rogers in the video below:
Rogers has a long ways to go to measure up to another Hamilton High quarterback product. Warren Moon, who was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2006, also is a product of the school located on the west side of Los Angeles.
The national letter of intent signing day is Wednesday.
