Davion Rogers – 2010 Michigan Commit -- Defensive End / Outside Linebacker

Posted at 4:00pm -- 1/18/2010

Davion Rogers – 2010 Michigan Commit

Height: 6'6"
Weight: 210 lbs.
High School: Warren G. Harding (Ohio)
High School Coach: D.J. Dota
Position: Defensive End / Outside Linebacker
Class: 2010 Recruiting Class (Verbal Commit)

Overview: Davion Rogers – New Michigan Commitment

Davion Rogers is a tall rangy defensive end/outside linebacker prospect. He was a good enough overall athlete to actually play some safety in high school. Davion moves his feet well for being a taller player.


Davion is a hustle player who makes a lot of plays in pursuit. He shows very good range and has a solid get off. Davion shows a nice little rip move that he uses to maintain outside leverage. He hs good lateral movement skills and range. Davion is a solid tackler, if not overly physical.

Needs Work:

His size and strength are definitely issues. He also tends to get too deep and turn his shoulders. Davion, like many tall players, plays high and needs to do a better job of squeezing plays.

Davion reminds GBMW of former Michigan defensive end/outside linebacker Pierre Woods.

I like the kid, but just not sure he is that great of a player. I like that we are getting into some of the better programs in Ohio, but wish we would be landing the elite level players to go with it.

Am very happy to see UM/Coach Rich Rod hitting Ohio hard. Now I woild like to see him take next step and start battling OSU/Tressell for the elite level players. I realize that this will not be easy, Coach Tressell and staff wrok extremely hard to keep their Ohio advantage. Just something I think would pay long term dividends.
