Eastside Catholic 4-star tight end DJ Rogers announces he will sign with California

Eastside Catholic’s offensive legion of football boom saw the final leg of its recruiting journey completed Saturday.

Tight end D.J. Rogers made a decision.

And he chose a different school than his senior teammates.

Rogers, a four-star tight end who is the No. 7 recruit in the state, according to 247Sports.com, announced on social media that he would be signing with the California Bears.

The 6-foot-3, 230-pounder is in a much different position than fellow Eastside Catholic standouts Gee Scott Jr. (Ohio State), a wide receiver; running back Sam Adams II (Washington); and defensive back Ayden Hector (Stanford).

Rogers suffered a season-ending knee injury Oct. 25 in the regular-season home finale against Bishop Blanchet, and has surgery to repair ligament damage a week later.

Before the injury, Rogers was the team’s second-leading receiving target behind Scott, and finished his senior season with 33 receptions for 452 yards and six touchdowns.

Early-period signing day begins Wednesday.
