National Signing Day 2010: WR Da'Rick Rogers Switches to Tennessee

Bryan KellySenior Analyst IFebruary 3, 2010

Five-star wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers may look like Georgia's AJ Green. But the two gamebreaking talents at wideout won't be playing together as expected this fall.

Rogers made his switch to the Tennessee Volunteers official earlier today, committing to the Vols and signing a letter of intent to enroll at Rocky Top this fall.

Rogers is perhaps the most touted WR recruit to enter Knoxville in some time. He's the No. 2 overall WR to Rivals.

Rogers and LSU decommit Justin Hunter form possibly the most exciting wide receiver duo the Vols could have hoped for. Given the depths of only a month ago, Hunter and Rogers' commitments were almost unthinkable.

More than anything, Rogers is a huge grab for new UT coach Derek Dooley. Coming from humble beginnings at Louisiana Tech, Dooley has shown he can recruit against the powers of the SEC.

Dooley has done well to restock Tennessee's 2010 class, which suffered a wave of decommitment following Kiffin's departure. The caliber of athlete sometimes wasn't up to snuff, but with Rogers, Dooley has shown he can land the gamers as well as the depth.

Check in with Maxpreps and B/R all day to keep updated on the latest announcements.
