Central California RB Tybo Rogers breaks down his commitment to Washington

Bakersfield (Calif.) running back Tybo Rogers is headed to the Pac-12.

Rogers announced his commitment to Washington moments ago, giving first year head coach Kalen DeBoer his first commitment in the 2023 class.

The biggest reason I picked Washington is because I felt the family hood and also the authenticity from the coaches,:” said Rogers.

Lee Marks ran point on Rogers’ recruitment- he offered him first at Fresno State back in November and then offered Rogers again shortly after arriving at Washington.

Rogers said the whole staff, Marks, DeBoer, William Inge most notably, played a big role in his decision with a major assist from new director of player personnel Courtney Morgan and his focus and connections throughout California.

I realized when I talked to the whole coaching staff at Washington when I was out there for junior day, that’s where I wanted to be,” said Rogers.

So Rogers let Marks know on Monday he wanted to be a Husky.

“The first coach I told was coach Marks and he was very excited for me,” said Rogers.

Rogers said his family was thrilled with his decision.

My families reaction was they were very happy for me,” said Rogers.

Rogers said he plans to get to Seattle next January and he’s plans to help the 2023 class.

I will enroll early and I will try to recruit my little brother and hopefully the top recruits of the class of 2023,” said Rogers.

Rogers said he wasn’t too concerned with the distance when he realized Washington was the spot for him.

It was big factor at first but I wanted to pick what was best for me and Washington was it,” said Rogers.

Rogers chose the Huskies over offers from Arizona, Boston College, Cal, Colorado, Fresno State, Nevada, Oregon State, San Diego State, San Jose State, UCLA, UNLV, USC, Utah and Washington State.

And he said he’s shutting down his recruitment.

“I am done with visits,” said Rogers. “It’s a big relief knowing that I don’t have to worry about it anymore and knowing that I can worry about my upcoming season.”

As a junior, he ran for 1,246 yards with 10 touchdowns and caught 31 passes for 614 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, he added 31 tackles, three interceptions and a pair of fumble recoveries.

On the season, he was Cal-Hi Sports All-State First Team Offense and his league’s Player of the Year.

A three-star in the industry-generated 247Sports Composite Rankings, Rogers checks in as the No. 99 running back nationally and No. 64 prospect in the state of California in 2023.
