Four-star Wide Receiver Noah Rogers Commits to Ohio State

Columbus is officially becoming Mr. Rogers’ neighborhood.

Ohio State’s first wide receiver commitment of the 2023 recruiting class came from Florida product Bryson Rodgers. Its fourth wide receiver commitment in the same cycle comes from a player with the same last name but different spelling: Noah Rogers.

The Buckeyes’ ridiculous run on wide receivers continued Wednesday, as Rogers became the third wide receiver in as many days to give his verbal commitment to OSU after Carnell Tate committed on Monday and Brandon Inniss pulled the trigger on Tuesday.

Rogers’ commitment comes less than six months after he received an offer from the Buckeyes in January.

The four-star, 6-foot-2, 180-pound wide receiver from North Carolina visited Ohio State on April 16 for the Buckeyes’ spring game. He fell in love with the campus, football program and Brian Hartline’s coaching philosophies on that visit, and committed just over two months later. He picked the Buckeyes over his home state schools North Carolina and North Carolina State as well as Florida State and Clemson, the other schools that were in his top five.

Due to flight issues, Rogers wasn’t able to attend his Ohio State official visit last weekend, but he felt good enough about the Buckeyes that he felt comfortable pulling the trigger anyway.

The Rogers File

  • Class: 2023
  • Size: 6-2/180
  • Post: wide receiver
  • School: Rolesville (Rolesville, North Carolina)
  • Star Rating: ★★★★
  • Composite Rank: #50 (#9 WR)

Rogers is ranked as the 50th-best overall player and the ninth-best wide receiver in the 2023 class, per 247Sports’ composite rankings. In 15 games for Rolesville High School (Rolesville, North Carolina), Rogers caught an eye-popping 70 passes for 1,432 yards and 22 receiving touchdowns, averaging 20.5 yards per catch. He also had five carries for 15 yards and a rushing touchdown.

Rogers becomes the 13th commitment in Ohio State’s 2023 recruiting class and the first from North Carolina. Assuming he signs with the Buckeyes in December, he’ll become the fourth player from the Tar Heel State to sign with Ohio State in five recruiting cycles, joining running back Evan Pryor in 2021, defensive lineman Jacolbe Cowan in 2020 and defensive tackle Jaden McKenzie in 2019.
