College Football Rumors: Will Rogers to Washington?

Although Miami (FL) and Washington State emerged as early favorites to land the former Mississippi State standout just one week ago, Rogers appears to be setting his sights on Seattle and the Huskies, with reports that the record-breaking quarterback will visit Washington this weekend with former Bulldogs teammate and star running back Jo’Quavious Marks.

Rogers was first linked to Washington on Dec. 4, when 247Sports’ Chris Hummer gave his crystal ball — the site’s prediction tool — to the Huskies as the favorite to land the former Mississippi State quarterback. Hummer noted that Rogers has garnered interest from a number of schools, including Washington.

Despite this, analyst Dan Kilbridge offered Miami (22.7% implied probability), Kentucky (18.2%), and Washington State (15.4%) as the front-runner to capture the Mississippi State standout.

At that time, just one week ago, considered Washington a long shot to land Rogers, with an implied probability of 5.3% or odds of +1800.

Since then, the college football rumors linking Rogers to Washington have heated up substantially. On Dec. 11,’s Pete Nakos reported that Rogers would take a visit to Washington this coming weekend.

ESPN’s Pete Thamel added fuel to fire by reporting that sources expect both Rogers and Marks to visit Seattle this weekend.

Why would Rogers want to go to Washington? Well, why wouldn’t he?! The program reached the College Football Playoff for the first time since the 2016 season this fall behind the nation’s leading passing offense. The Huskies averaged 343.8 passing yards per game this season, representing a dream landing spot for any transfer quarterback.

Furthermore, they’ve already shown the ability to transform a quarterback into a Heisman Trophy contender with Michael Penix Jr. Entering the transfer portal with the second most passing yards in SEC history, not to mention the conference record for pass completions, Rogers offers a highly-alluring skillset that makes for a beneficial partnership for both parties involved.
