Johnson C. Smith basketball has signed guard Patrell Rogers of Florence, S.C.


Rogers, 6-foot-2, is projected as a combination guard with the Golden Bulls, who lose All-America guard Trevin Parks to graduation. As a senior at Wilson High, Rogers averaged 21.2 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game. He was named to the Morning News All-Pee Dee team and played in the North-South All-Star game.


“Patrell is a talented young man and we look forward to having him join our program,” Golden Bulls coach Steve Joyner said in a statement.
Rogers chose JCSU over several Division II schools, including nearby Francis Marion. He will join former Wilson teammate Alandre Davis, a center who shot 57 percent from the floor and played in 20 games last season as a freshman.


“Knowing Alandre was there and he said the coaches treat them right, that made me feel good,” Rogers said. “I am just looking forward to playing on that next level, working hard and trying to win.”
