Tennessee has landed in the top five of one of their biggest targets in the 2020 class. Justin Rogers, a high four-star prospect out of Michigan, placed the Vols in his top five options along with LSU, Michigan, Georgia and Kentucky.

Rogers also announced that he will be committing on May 20th at Oak Park High School — the same high school that produced former Tennessee running back John Kelly.
The 6-2, 311 pound prospect is listed and ranked as an offensive guard, but Tennessee may like him on the defensive line. As things stand now, Rogers is the top ranked guard in the country, according to 247 Sports. Rogers checks in at 30th overall in the 2020 class.
Tennessee holds two of the 18 crystal ball projections for Rogers, but Kentucky has been the team with the late momentum here.
Rogers took his official visit to Tennessee on April 12th, then took his official to Kentucky on April 26th. Georgia will get the final chance to impress, hosting Rogers on an official visit on May 17th — just days before his May 20th decision.
While Tennessee could use more help on the offensive line, Jeremy Pruitt has yet to add many true difference makers to the defensive front. Perhaps that’s exactly what he’s envisioning for Rogers.
Here’s a quick look at what Rogers offers.
