Ladue High standout Mark Rogers has given a commitment to Truman State University in Kirksville, Mo.
The 6’6″ 210-pound Rogers chose Truman State over Colorado School of the Mines and Missouri Baptist. Truman State is a NCAA Division II school that competes in the very competitive Great Lakes Valley Conference.
“I chose to commit to Truman State because it had the combination of what I was looking for in terms of basketball and academics,” Rogers said. “I really like the coaches as well and I feel comfortable playing for them. I’m really excited for what lies ahead.”
Rogers has gone through a tremendous transformation during his prep career at Ladue. He was once a 6’3″ 150-pound freshman who shot 3-pointers. Now, he has evolved into a 210-pound force who can muscle his way around the basket as well as shoot from the perimeter.
As a junior, Rogers averaged 18.4 points and 9.4 rebounds while shooting 59 percent from the field and 50 percent from 3-point range.
Rogers played with the Gateway Basketball Club 17U team last summer. But what often isn’t acknowledged, say the authors of the report, is the true have a peek at the weblink cost of that pattern
