BRYN MAWR, Pa. — Hakeem Rogers, a basketball star who led Elizabeth High School all the way to the NJISAA Group IV state championship game as a junior, will continue his athletic career at Harcum College in Bryn Mawr, Pa.
“It is an exciting day to welcome Shawn, Isaiah, and Hakeem into our program,” said Harcum College men’s basketball coach Drew Kelly in announcing the first three members to the Bears’ 2013 recruiting class, which also includes Shawn Church of Ridley High School in Delaware County, Pa. and Isaiah Johnson from Notre Dame High School in Lawrenceville. “Their athleticism and talents will really shine in our up-tempo style and it will be very exciting to watch them develop over the next two years. These three student-athletes will help to keep Harcum basketball as one of the elite juco programs in the nation.”
Rogers, a lightning quick combo guard, led a basketball resurgence at Elizabeth High School in northern New Jersey. As a junior, he was named 1st team all-Union County. As a senior, Rogers repeated as 1st team all county and also earned 1st team all-state honors after averaging 19 points per game and knocking down 60 three pointers for a team that finished 12th in state-ranking. He ended his career with 1,090 points.
