Washington quarterback Will Rogers goes back into the transfer gate

Washington quarterback Will Rogers goes back into the transfer gate

Friday night, Washington quarterback Will Rogers had put his name in the transfer window. This is the second time in two months that he has been in the portal.

Rogers put his name in the record for the first time on November 27, when he transferred from Mississippi State.

Zach Arnett, his teacher, was fired on November 13 and replaced by Jeff Lebby, the offensive coordinator for Oklahoma. This is what made Rogers go into the gate for the first time.

He said he would be transferring to Washington on December 15, and it looked like he would take over at quarterback for Michael Penix Jr., who was leaving for Washington.

Rogers went to the school and even wore a Washington shirt to the national championship football against Michigan to watch what was meant to be his new team.

Then, on Friday, two days following Nick Saban’s left, DeBoer became the head coach at Alabama. Now Rogers is back in the gate.

The staff added four-star Austin Miller in the 2023 class, but if Rogers leaves, the team won’t have a lot of expertise at the position.

He can switch schools again, which would be his second transfer. This is possible in part as a result of a temporary restraining order handed down by a federal judge in West Virginia that let college athletes who had to sit out a year because of the NCAA’s old rule for players who transferred multiple times to play right away.

The NCAA then said that any player who transferred more than once would be able to play right away in the 2024 season, as long as they did so before the end of the 2023–24 school year. That means Rogers can move to a different school without getting in trouble.

He joined cornerback Jabbar Muhammad, safety Mishael Powell, defender Ethan Barr, and tight end Tre Watson as the fifth player from Washington to go through the transfer window on Friday. Muhammad was named to the All-Pac-12 second team.

Washington loses Penix at quarterback along with seeing Dylan Morris or Will Haskell go to other teams. Rogers is also in the pool, so if he chooses to move, there won’t be many quarterbacks to choose from.

ESPN’s Tom VanHaaren reported Friday that former Mississippi State quarterback Will Rogers was re-entering the transfer window.

This came just after news broke that Alabama is hiring Kalen DeBoer to replace Nick Saban as head coach.

Rogers, who said he would move to Washington on December 15, was supposed to take over at quarterback for Huskies star Michael Penix Jr., who is leaving to join the NFL draft.

According to reports, Rogers was the fifth Huskies player to use the move site on Friday. The other four were cornerback Jabbar Muhammad, safety Mishael Powell, defender Ethan Barr, and tight end Tre Watson.

Rogers has thrown for 12,315 yards, which is second most in SEC history. He also has 94 touchdowns, which is fourth most in SEC history.

Rogers first came to school as Mike Leach’s quarterback and did well in the air raid system. However, he hasn’t been as good since his junior year, when he threw for 4,739 yards and 36 scores.

Rogers got hurt this past season. He hurt his shoulder in the arm he didn’t throw with in the Bulldogs’ victory over Western Michigan on the first weekend of October. Rogers didn’t play in Mississippi State’s next four games.

Transfer to Vanderbilt Before Rogers came back and started in a 41-20 win over Southern Miss, Mike Wright led the Mississippi State Bulldogs to a 1-3 record while Rogers was out.
