Reviewing Tennessee's Class of 2009: RTT#11 Zach Rogers

RTT#11 Zach Rogers is up next in our series reviewing Tennessee's Class of 2009. Here's how he looked coming to college:

Three stars from both services, but offers from Alabama, North Carolina (which had a very strong recruiting class in 2009), and South Carolina (ditto), Rogers was fairly highly-touted and thus got an 8-jar rating from RTT.

Rogers's 2009 stats:

Games
Played
Rushing Receiving
  No Gain Loss Net TDs No Yds TD
12 1 15 0 15 0 3 19 0

 

Eh. One run for 15 yards and three catches for 19 yards in 12 games (he did not play against Florida). Playing with a group of receivers that included upper classmen Gerald Jones, Denarius Moore, and Luke Stocker and more highly-touted newcomers Nu'Keese Richardson and Marsalis Teague certainly made it difficult to get touches (if not to get into the game), but still a total of 34 yards is pretty underwhelming. Rogers will have quite a challenge improving on that in 2010, too, as all of those guys save Richardson are back, and Dooley's added one of the best receiving classes in Tennessee history.

Still, Rogers did get into the action against Georgia and wins the award for world's shortest stride:

 

To be honest, I wasn't really looking for Rogers to play more or be more productive despite his ranking because of the wide receivers we had. I don't expect much more of him this year, either, which is kind of a shame because he could be quite good. The Vols are just loaded at WR. At least I hope they are.
