On Friday morning, multiple reports came out and said that Mississippi State football’s star quarterback Will Rogers would enter his name into the transfer portal. Rogers graduated last May from Mississippi State and will have two years of eligibility at his new school.
Rogers has had a great career with the Bulldogs; he threw for 12,315 yards and 94 touchdowns. The majority of his yards and touchdowns came under the late Mike Leach; he had 8,713 yards and 71 touchdowns in 2021 and 2022.
Rogers will go down as one of the best quarterbacks in SEC history. He could easily stay in the SEC, and he could break the conference’s all-time record of 13,166 passing yards by former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray.
What is next for Mississippi State football?
Mississippi State will still have Mike Wright, who has one year of eligibility. Wright threw for 453 yards and three touchdowns. He also had 71 carries for 324 yards and three touchdowns.
They also have freshman four-star quarterback Chris Parson, and they have three-star quarterback Josh Flowers, who is committed to State in the class of 2024.
Barring something big happening, you would have to imagine it will be a quarterback battle between Mike Wright and Chris Parson. It will be interesting to see who wins that battle.
