Greg Rogers of Las Vegas, Nevada is a top 100 overall player that just about every major program is trying to woo and a massive USC target on the defensive side of the ball. Rogers tweeted his highly anticipated group of schools Sunday evening.

The schools lucky enough to make Rogers' final group of suitors include Arizona State, Colorado, Michigan, Oklahoma, UCLA, and USC.

In regards to Rogers' recruitment, the Bruins and Trojans have been seen as ideal destinations for the monster defensive lineman with USC being considered the leader for some time. Most experts have Rogers pegged to eventually select USC as his choice, but it's certainly not a done deal with him. Rogers has completely shut down his recruitment to all other schools outside this list, so he'll give each university a fair opportunity to win him over.

Rogers informed 247Sports Steve Wiltfong that all of his finalists are about equal in terms of how much he likes each one though I believe there's a smaller group of schools that stand out above the rest. Rogers also got into specifics when asked what separated his top schools from the rest of the programs that extended scholarship offers.

"Just overall relationships, and who I felt most comfortable with," Rogers said in regards to why the group of six became his finalists.

Per what most believe, USC looks like the team to beat, but Michigan is definitely a school to watch as the Wolverines have been recruiting Rogers very well and pushing him to visit as soon as possible. As in many cases, a visit to Ann Arbor and the unique courtship displayed by Jim Harbaugh could sway things in a more positive direction for Michigan, but Rogers seems to be a prospect the Trojans won't give up on until he signs with USC.
