Running back Brad Rogers made an early commitment to Iowa so he could focus solely on his upcoming senior season at Toledo Central Catholic. Since making his verbal pledge in April, that is exactly what the 5-foot-10, 230-pound Rogers has been doing as he has been hard at work this summer training with his team.

As a junior, Rogers rushed for 634 yards and 12 touchdowns with most of his workload coming in the first six games before an ankle injury limited him in the second half of the season.
