The second-best prospect in the state of Michigan behind only Emoni Bates and soon likely to be No. 1 when the five-star reclassifies, Ty Rodgers just doesn’t seem like he wants to remain in the state of Michigan.

Rodgers is a talented small forward with all the tools to be a stud at the next level but there’s no telling where he may end up. Michigan State finally extended an offer to him on June 18, joining the likes of Florida State, Maryland, Marquette, Michigan, Ohio State and Syracuse. He has plenty of interest and his list continues to grow, but is he looking for a reason to get out of Michigan?

Michigan State would love to have Rodgers and you can bet Tom Izzo will put in the work to try and get him to join a loaded roster, but everything on this front has been quiet.

Athleticism is the theme of Rodgers’ game and he oozes confidence. He can finish strong around the rim and has no fear pulling up from deep and drilling a three in a defender’s face. Rodgers is the perfect slasher and creates his own shots with ease.

Rodgers is the No. 49 recruit in the 2022 class and 13th-best small forward, according to the 247Sports composite.
