Will Rogers keeping options open and Washington is still in play

Will Rogers was Kalen DeBoer's succession plan at quarterback, but Jedd Fisch's plan may look a lot different. Rogers is back in the transfer portal, but keeping every option on the table, including the Huskies.

When Kalen DeBoer got to Washington, one of the first things he did was get an experienced quarterback. DeBoer reunited with Michael Penix Jr. and rode his left arm to the College Football Playoff this season. 

DeBoer had a succession plan in place with Will Rogers committed to the Huskies out of the transfer portal, but now DeBoer is in Tuscaloosa, Jedd Fisch is the new head coach at Washington, and “every option is still on the table” for Rogers, according to On3’s Pete Nakos

In his four seasons at Mississippi State, Rogers played in the air-raid system and developed into a highly accurate and decisive quarterback, but still lacks elite arm strength. Yet, plenty of teams would love a quarterback who has thrown for 12,315 yards and 94 touchdowns in the SEC. 

Most of the big names in the portal have already found a home, but Nick Saban’s surprise retirement sent shockwaves throughout the entire country and now Rogers is ripe for the taking. Here are his possible landing spots and the reasons why he should and shouldn’t pack his bags for each one.
