The top-ranked 2022 verbal commitment for the Miami Hurricanes wasted little time getting his senior high school football season started with a bang.

Khamauri Rogers, a four-star cornerback verbal commit, led Lexington (Ms.) Holmes County to a 47-0 victory over Greenwood (Ms.) to open the 2021 regular season.

Rogers scored two offensive touchdowns while playing wide receiver and added a defensive touchdown on a 30-yard interception return while playing cornerback.

Rogers finished the game with 70 receiving yards and 25 punt return yards. He also broke up two passes in addition to the interception and made two tackles.

In Georgia, four-star quarterback verbal commitment Jacurri Brown had another big game for Valdosta Lowndes. Brown completed 13-of-22 passes for 193 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 105 yards. Those 105 yards included a 53-yard touchdown run.

If you missed Brown’s performance in Georgia’s opening week of high school football, it was one for the ages. He passed for 164 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 152 yards and a touchdown, but lost to Marietta-Walton 34-28 in overtime. Below are the late game highlights from August 21.

Hurricanes three-star wide receiver verbal commitment Landon Ibieta had a big game for his Mandeville (La.) team. Ibieta had a 76-yard punt return for a touchdown and also caught three passes for 41 yards and a touchdown in his team’s lopsided victory.

Miami four-star wide receiver verbal commitment Isaiah Horton did not have any catches this week but he did make six tackles (one for a loss) on defense in Murfreesboro (Tn.) Oakland’s 31-13 win over Madison-Ridgeland Academy on ESPN2 on Saturday.

Hurricanes three-star linebacker verbal commitment Justin Medlock made six tackles (two for a loss) and recovered a fumble in the Manvel (Tx.) 45-42 loss to Dickinson (Tx.).

Miami four-star cornerback verbal commitment Chris Graves did not play for Fort Myers-Bishop Verot in its regular season opener.
