Liberty Heights and head coach Mike Wright certainly was an interesting team to watch this past season. Loaded with talent, size, and versatility at so many positions, college coaches have been coming all around.
One prospect of intrigue this season was 2020 6’5 Kahari Rogers, a player that brings tremendous size as a guard and can be a knockdown shooter. This season though at Liberty Heights, he looked to showcase that he can be much more, proving to be a three-level scorer and improving in other areas of his game.
Putting the work in this season under Coach Wright, Rogers proved that he has the talent to play at the next level, which is why schools are continuing to show interest his way.
“The season went well,” Rogers told Phenom Hoops. “I wish it ended in a state championship but we couldn’t get over the hump At the beginning, it was a little up and down but my teammates and I bought into what Coach Wright was trying to implement into us since August and I believe we finished the season strong. What I took away from the season was that nothing will be given to you, everything has to be earned and I just constantly have to get better every day.”
“My focuses (this season) were to mix it up a little, be a three-level scorer, and to shoot the ball at a high rate whether that was from mid-range or from deep. Also, to keep rebounding the way I was. I can improve in my ballhandling a little bit more and my explosiveness.”
Throughout the season, Rogers showed his improvement in his game and schools noticed. Rogers currently holds offers from North Carolina A&T and Hofstra, both of which really seem to like his game.
Time will tell to see where Rogers may be headed to at the next level but over the season, one can see that he worked incredibly hard in showing that he can be a do-it-all type guard and be a scorer on many levels.
