Amari Rodgers commits to USC: Trojans get four-star WR


The USC Trojans picked up a big commitment Thursday as four star receiver Amari Rodgers committed to the program.

The USC Trojans picked up a commitment late Thursday evening as 2017 four-star wide receiver Amari Rodgers (Knoxville, TN. Knoxville Catholic) announced he would become a Trojan via Twitter earlier Thursday evening.

Rodgers is the No. 24 player in his class, the No. 18 receiver, and the No. 6 player in the state of Tennessee per the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

He was recruited by his father, wide receivers coach Tee Martin, who was the primary recruiter for his son.

With this commitment, USC now carries two commitments in the ’17 class with four-star running back Stephen Carr (Fontana, CA. Summit), being the other. That puts the Trojans at No. 8 in the country and No. 1 in the Pac-12 per the 247Sports Team Rankings.

“It’s always been the right fit for me,” Rodgers told Ryan Bartow of 247Sports. “I just love it here. I feel like I fit in and I just love it here. Every time I come here I like it more and more.”

As shown in his highlight film, he is very sound fundamentally. Sometimes with younger receivers, they focus on making a big play before they even have the ball in their hands. With Rogers, he focused on making the catch first and making the play after so to speak.

The Trojans recruiting efforts have really picked up in the two years that Steve Sarkisian has been head coach and the pipeline of talent coming to USC isn’t slowing down.
