2020 cornerback Jahari Rogers has been picking up offers from across the country, but the Texas Longhorns have been recruiting him hard. Now that he's narrowed down his list a little, he's addressed how Texas has been recruiting him.

Speaking to Horns247, Rogers revealed that Texas has been particularly honest with him, and values that in a coaching staff. He also stated that he feels the relationship with the Longhorns is strong.

“They’re real with me,” he said. “That’s what I want in coaches with my recruitment. They show a lot of love, and they speak nothing but the truth to me. That really is eye-opening when other people don’t. With them, it’s different. I feel more of a trust with them, and it’s a strong relationship.”

Rogers is a four-star prospect and is rated the No. 248 overall prospect by 247Sports. He is considered the No. 20 cornerback in the country, and the No. 41 prospect from the state of Texas.

Per the report, Rogers has identified Texas, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia Tech, and Oklahoma has his standout schools.

Rogers spoke especially glowingly about Texas assistant Ra’Shaad Sample. He stated that Sample would likely support him regardless of whether he chose the Longhorns.

“He’s probably the biggest person over there that I really trust,” he said. “He saw me before everybody else did. He’s really just cool with me. Even if I didn’t go to Texas, he would still probably have my back, hand I feel that. Just having him over there makes me feel comfortable with Texas.”

Horns247 reported that Rogers is eyeing June 22 as a visit date to the Texas campus.

He has already completed visits with Arkansas and Florida.
