Raevyn Rogers will not transition to the pro ranks. Mark these words.
Sad to say, but I agree. In a non WC/Olympic year, she should have finished out her NCAA career. Don't get me wrong, I think she will make a lot of national teams, but the women's 800 is insanely competitive right now and it's probably going to take Raven years before she will even make finals in global championships. I would have the same thing to an NCAA 100m hurdler, stay in school. I can see Raven facing the same situation as Price, Goule and Roesler for example. With that said, I think Raven has the talent to be a good pro 800m runner, but she is going to singing in chorus for a long time. Personally, I think she has more potential in the 400, sort of like Phyllis Francis type.
