College football roundup: Da'Rick Rogers seems headed for Tennessee Tech

The SportsXchange

Less than a week after he was suspended at Tennessee, all-Southeastern Conference wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers seems set to transfer to Tennessee Tech, multiple media outlets reported Monday.

Austin Price of Volquest.com reports, Rogers will play for Tennessee Tech, an FCS program, this season. He participated in the team's quarterback/wide receiver meeting on Sunday.

Tech has not officially confirmed that Rogers has been added to its roster. Tennessee Tech opens its season with a game against Hampton on Thursday.

Tennessee coach Derek Dooley confirmed on Monday that Rogers would not return to the Vols.

Rogers was suspended indefinitely by Tennessee earlier this month, reportedly for a violation of the school's substance abuse policy for athletes.

Rogers led the SEC with 67 receptions last season and was second in the conference with 1,040 receiving yards.

--- Former Auburn and Arkansas State running back Michael Dyer will attend Arkansas Baptist College this year, NBCSports.com reported based on a radio interview with the school's president.

Arkansas Baptist president Dr. Fitzgerald Hill, a former head football coach at San Jose State, said in a radio interview on Sunday that Dyer will attend Arkansas Baptist and "work towards an associate's degree." Dyer will not play football for Arkansas Baptist this season, though.

Dyer will be eligible for the 2013 NFL Draft, so it's unlikely he will play anymore college football anywhere.

---Michael Rocco, and not Alabama transfer Phillip Sims, is listed as Virginia's starting quarterback for the Cavaliers' season-opener against Richmond.

Rocco was Virginia's starter last season and threw for over 2,600 as a sophomore.

Last year, Sims lost out in the competition for the starting job at Alabama to A.J. McCarron and transferred to Virginia.

In July, the NCAA granted him a waiver to play this season for the Cavaliers, but he is not listed as the No. 1 quarterback on the depth chart released Monday.
