Eli Rogers has a big week, may visit UCF

Louisville commit Eli Rogers capped a big personal week by hauling in a 43-yard pass to set up a game-winning field goal for the Red squad in last night's Under-Armour All-America game.

Rogers, who won the event's Hands Competition and was described during the week as being "almost un-coverable in 1-on-1 drills," also made a spectacular move on a punt return earlier in the game. He was listed by nearly every media member covering the event as one of the week's breakout stars.

That's the good. The bad is that rumors swirled during the week that Rogers plans to visit Central Florida later this month. Rogers has neither confirmed nor denied.

It's a tad scary, especially considering what happened with Torrian Wilson (and nearly Michaelee Harris) on signing day a year ago, but the consensus is that even if he does take the visit, Rogers still has his mind set on being a Cardinal.

The other factor to consider here is that Rogers' mother is dying of AIDS.

If he chooses to stay closer to home for this reason, I don't think any of us could or will blame him.

Wherever he goes, the kid is going to be a playmaker.
