Washington football has secured their quarterback for the 2024-2025 college football season. The QB situation in Seattle was murky for a bit but today Will Rogers announced that he had withdrawn his name from the transfer portal.

Rogers played for four years at Mississippi State before transferring to the UW in December. When head coach Kalen DeBoer left for Alabama, Rogers re-entered his name in the transfer portal due to the uncertainty surrounding the program.

However, Rogers withdrawing his name from the transfer portal signals his commitment to the Huskies. The hiring of new head coach Jedd Fisch likely played a crucial role in Rogers' decision, as he found a level of comfort and confidence in the direction of the program under Fisch's leadership.

For Rogers, staying with the Huskies proved to be the optimal choice. His impressive track record includes throwing for 12,315 yards, 94 touchdowns, and 28 interceptions during his time at Mississippi State, showcasing his prowess as a quarterback. He very well could be a candidate for the Heisman this season.

Currently, the quarterback lineup for the Huskies includes Rogers, Camdyn Stiegeler, and Teddy Purcell, along with promising new additions Demond Williams Jr and Dash Breirly.

However, the team has experienced departures, losing key players such as Michael Penix Jr to the NFL Draft and Dylan Morris, Alex Johnson, Austin Mack, Demaricus Davis, and William Haskell to the transfer portal.

Despite these changes, the Huskies are gearing up for an exciting season with Rogers leading the charge.
