After a recent MVP performance at the Arizona Preps Fall Showcase, Casa Grande High School's 6-foot-4, 185-pound senior guard Gresyn Rogers has seen his college recruitment begin to take shape quickly. This week, Rogers received a visit to his high school from an assistant coach from a Conference USA program.
UTEP assistant coach Bob Cantu, one of the best recruiters in college basketball, has made a living out of finding and landing untapped basketball talent. Rogers caught the attention of Cantu, who traveled to Casa Grande, Arizona, to watch Rogers work out with his high school coach - Gino Crump. The workout went very well for Rogers, and UTEP will now look to recruit the athletic and strong basketball talent.
Arizona Preps' own Chris Buchanan made the call to UTEP regarding Rogers' recent performance, and also attended the workout.
"He looked very good in the workout," said Buchanan. "I was impressed with him and UTEP indicated that they will be back to see him again."
Rogers really impressed scouts and media in attendance at this year's Fall Showcase with his performance - enough to earn Tournament Most Valuable Player honors. One of the most under recruited prospects in Arizona's 2016 class, Rogers is still an uncommitted prospect in the class.
Rogers also was selected as this year's Tournament Slam-Dunk Champion in the event, after winning the slam-dunk contest in exciting fashion with numerous electrifying dunks in front of all the fans, media and participants of the event.
Rogers is also an excellent student and carries a 3.9 CUM GPA.
I will continue to follow Rogers' recruitment closely, and bring you any recruiting updates as they continue to develop.
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: Rogers has a superb body with a very athletic frame - a division-I college ready body. He has good size for his body and is a very strong prospect with a nice overall motor. He has a very good overall skill level and has good versatility as a player. Rogers is a talented wing prospect with excellent athleticism and a solid feel for the game. A team player, Rogers likes to play in a team-concept and get others involved. He does not force the action, but is a glue-guy of sorts. Rogers has a very nice shooting stroke with range on his shot, and also has a very good mid-range game off the dribble. He is an active rebounder and a hard-nosed defender. He is also a good ball handler and passer. Rogers is a very good kid with nice work ethic and will make the college program of his choice very proud.
