Matt Rodgers, a drop-back quarterback from Pittsburgh, decided today to take Akron's scholarship offer.
Rodgers enters a depth chart full of youth. That's why I raise an eyebrow that Rivals.com calls Rodgers the Zips "quarterback of the future." After watching some highlight videos of Rodgers, I certainly hesitate to call him a bigger prospect than Sean Hakes.
Rodgers certainly seems to be a highly touted player, however. Ohio, Toledo and Bowling Green offered him a scholarship. Boston College also had interest.
The highlight videos showed me three things: 1) He's an accurate passer. 2) He locks onto one receiver too often. 3) He can scramble pretty well.
No word on whether Rodgers is related to rock/blues icon Paul Rodgers.
