As Oregon’s recruiting efforts persist into late January, they recently made a move by offering a scholarship to the highly-regarded offensive tackle, Lamont Rogers. Hailing from Mesquite, Texas, Rogers stands at an imposing 6-foot-6, weighing 305 pounds, aligning with the typical frame expected for an elite offensive tackle. Rogers shared the news of the offer through his social media channels.

Lamont Rogers holds an impressive ranking as the No. 99 player in the 247Sports Top 247, securing the 11th spot among offensive tackles and placing 15th among Texas players. In the 247Sports Composite rankings, he climbs even higher to the 51st position overall, ranking as the 7th tackle and 11th player in Texas.

Demonstrating his highly sought-after talent, Rogers has received over 35 offers, as indicated on his 247Sports page. Notable football programs such as Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, and many others are actively vying for his commitment.

According to 247Sports Scouting Analyst Gabe Brooks, Lamont Rogers is described as a big-bodied offensive tackle prospect, possessing height and mass that is believed to be in the 6-6, 300+ range early in his junior season, although specific arm length and wingspan details are yet to be confirmed. Noteworthy attributes include playing to his size in the running game, displaying above-average get-off speed, and showcasing good drive-blocking skills when engaged with opponents. While occasionally demonstrating an encouraging punch, his basketball background suggests significant potential for development in movement ability and pass protection. Described as a crafty post scorer on the basketball court, Rogers currently exhibits more proficiency in footwork compared to hand techniques. In pass protection, he holds his own, especially at the point of engagement, yet may face challenges against defenders with secondary rush abilities. Suggestions for improvement include widening and deepening his pass set and maintaining vigilance against inside counters. Although his naturally high center of gravity may compromise leverage consistency, he is recognized as a bona fide high-major offensive line prospect with tackle traits, potentially evolving into a quality multi-year starter at the Power 5 level and possessing an NFL Draft ceiling.

The Ducks have been actively recruiting tackles in the 2025 class, extending offers to several prospects, including the fellow top-100 prospect Andrew Babalola. Currently, the Ducks have secured commitments from four players in their 2025 class, comprising wide receivers Adrian and Dallas Wilson, quarterback Akili Smith Jr., and offensive lineman Chavez Thompson.
