Standing at 6’4 215, Landon Rogers looks the part of what you want an SEC quarterback to look like. This time around the Razorbacks were able to gain a commitment from the best quarterback in the state.
“Landon is a big time player with no ceiling,” said Little Rock Parkview football head coach, Brad Bolding.
In 2019, Rogers put up good numbers for the the Little Rock Parkview Patriots. He passed for over 2,000 yards and 19 touchdowns. Rogers also ran for an addition 730 yards and 10 touchdowns. “His ability to read defensive coverages, strong arm and ability to run is what makes him a big time prospect.”
Bolding was very complimentary of the new Razorback coaching staff especially new offensive coordinator Kendal Briles. “(Rogers) has the opportunity to be coached by (Kendal) Briles who is as good of a quarterback coach as you will find at the college level,” said Bolding. “Really, the only thing he needs to work on his his accuracy.”
With the ongoing pandemic, summer camps and competitions have been cancelled or postponed. That did not keep Bolding from continuing to praise his star quarterback. “He was invited to participate in the Elite 11 but it was unfortunately cancelled because of the pandemic. If he would have been able to participate he possibly could have won his district.”
His offers before committing to Arkansas were Houston, Kansas, ULM and Lafayette. Bolding also mentioned many schools giving interest to Rogers.
Rogers is the third commitment for the 2021 recruiting class and all reign from the Natural State. He joins Terry Wells (Wynne) and Marco Avant (Jonesboro). He is the seventh ranked athlete in the state of Arkansas and 29th ranked quarterback for the 2021 class.
