#7 on the Class of 2022 Big Board, Rylan Rogers has plenty of options when it comes to colleges, and he’s keeping them open. The junior has a preliminary school list of 10 colleges that he is interested in. 

Rylan Rogers School List (in alphabetical order)

  • Arizona State

  • Cornell

  • Michigan

  • North Carolina

  • North Carolina State

  • Oregon State

  • Ohio State

  • Oklahoma

  • Penn

  • Penn State

As far as a decision goes, don’t expect one anytime soon. There’s a reason I called this a "preliminary" school list. Rogers would prefer to take some official school visits before making his decision. With the recruiting dead period extended, that won’t be possible until Jan. 1 at the earliest. Rogers says he might take a couple unofficial visits on his own time and dime.

Wrestling 182 with two high school seasons to go, 184 is a possibility, but Rogers expects he’ll grow into 197 by the time he wrestles in college.

Arizona State, Cornell, Oregon State, Oklahoma would all be good lineup fits while Michigan, UNC, NC State, Ohio State, and Penn all have either a solid 197 redshirt or recruit coming in from the class of 2021 or 2022 that projects as a 197. If Rogers were to go to Penn State he could likely overlap with Michael Beard assuming Rogers takes a redshirt and Beard does not redshirt again in the next four years.

Lineup fit is a secondary decision factor for an intelligent young man like Rogers, however. The Washington native knows the importance of fitting into the culture of a team. He is taking this process very seriously and enjoying it along the way. He will be a great addition to whatever college roster he chooses.
