One of the most productive players in Mississippi State football history is reportedly entering the transfer portal.
With another season of eligibility ahead of him, it looks like Will Rogers is interested in playing for one more season.
Unfortunately, there’s a very good chance that Rogers won’t complete his college football career in Starkville.
One of the best players in Mississippi State football history is reportedly interested in transferring away from the Mississippi State Bulldogs. After this Mississippi State football season came to a close with MSU coming up short in the 2023 Egg Bowl, it looks like Rogers will take his talents elsewhere.
Matt Zenitz has the news:
And that absolutely makes a ton of sense for Rogers.
Mississippi State football: Will Rogers reportedly will transfer from MSU
It’s hard to blame Rogers for making this sort of decision.
This year has been disastrous for him and his career. While it was enjoyable and fun to joke about Rogers running the ball in the Egg Bowl, it seems like he got hurt earlier this season and was severely limited in how he was able to play because he was running the ball earlier this year.
On top of that, this season’s offense utterly failed to take advantage of his strengths or the strengths of this roster.
Plus, Rogers has already sat through one rebuilding process of the Mississippi State football program. With one last year of eligibility ahead of him, why on earth would he sit through another when MSU failed to set him up to succeed this season?
Transferring to a better situation makes a lot of sense for him. No clue where he’s gonna go, but I hope he’s able to thrive.
Should he end up transferring away, Rogers ends his career in Maroon and White as one of the greatest to ever play in Starkville. He helped Mike Leach rebuild the program after the rough Joe Moorhead era and he set numerous records in Starkville.
Go be great, Will.
