All-state defensive tackle Rogers transfers to Arbor View

Greg Rogers, one of the area’s top football prospects in the class of 2017, has transferred to Arbor View from Centennial.

“I just felt like Arbor View was a better fit for me,” Rogers said Wednesday. “Their history with the lines they’ve produced and their work ethic, I felt like it was a better place for me my senior year, and I feel like they can make me into a better player. And recruiting-wise, I felt like I could be recruited better.” 

Rogers, a 6-foot-4-inch, 311-pound defensive lineman, is a four-star prospect and rated the nation’s No. 3 defensive tackle (No. 45 overall) by Scout.com for the class of 2017. He is the No. 11 defensive tackle and No. 173 overall by Rivals.com.

As a junior at Centennial, Rogers had 64 tackles, 17 tackles for loss and six sacks and was named first-team all-state. Rogers has scholarship offers from more than half of the Pac-12 Conference and also has drawn interest from the likes of Notre Dame, Oregon, Southern California and Texas A&M.

Arbor View went 10-2 this past season and reached the Division I Sunset Region title game. The Aggies clinched the Northwest League title with a 17-14 victory over Centennial in the regular-season finale.

“There’s no bad blood on the move,” Rogers said. “I left Centennial on a great note.”
