3-star linebacker Eric Rogers announced on his Twitter page Wednesday morning that he has currently narrowed his recruitment down to three schools.
I have scaled down my process, and will be coming out with my top 3 schools of interest tonight— Eric Rogers 3⃣3⃣ (@E_Rog33) June 3, 2015
Rogers later tweeted out that his top three schools currently are: Toledo, NIU, and Boston College. Rogers reports offers from all three of these schools.
This list comes from an impressive offer list that includes Western Michigan, Cincinnati, Miami, Buffalo, EMU, CMU, Kent State, Bowling Green, Ball State, Navy, Air Force, and Akron.
He attends De La Salle located in Warren, Michigan and is the teammate of recent Western Michigan commit, OL Jordan Asbury. Rogers is currently ranked a 3-star recruit, a top 35 linebacker in the class of 2016, as well as a top 25 recruit in the state of Michigan by 247Sports.
NIU offered the 6-foot-2 231 pound linebacker on Tuesday afternoon on an unofficial visit.

Toledo was actually the first school to offer Rogers back in December which should help them over time seeming as they were the first school willing to give Rogers a scholarship opportunity.
Boston College will be tough for either MAC program to beat, however NIU has come on strong as of late. Toledo has been in on Rogers since day one, which can't be taken lightly.
B1G programs were showing interest in Rogers very early in the process. Our very own Charles Doss caught up with Rogers shortly after a visit to OSU before he even held his first offer. Schools such as Michigan and Ohio State have shown interest despite not holding an offer from either at the moment.
With that said, Rogers is a great talent who could very easily see more Power 5 offers roll in over the next few months which could alter his decision, however both Toledo and NIU should be considered serious contenders for landing Rogers.
