Oregon in the running for Nebraska defensive lineman Casey Rogers

·1 min read

There are more athletes in the NCAA transfer portal than heroes coming through a Doctor Strange portal in Endgame.

One of those athletes is former Nebraska defensive lineman Casey Rogers, a 6-foot-5, 295-pounder from Old Farms, Conn. He visited the Oregon campus recently and announced the Ducks are among the three schools he is considering with Auburn and USC being the other two choices.

With the Cornhuskers, Rogers has played in 19 games and has been credited with 42 tackles and 1.5 sacks. He has two years of eligibility remaining. Rogers says he will make his decision “soon.”

Rogers may be the first of many players fleeing Nebraska as the NCAA has hit Scott Frost’s program with sanctions for a year.

In a press release, the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions said that a former Cornhuskers football special teams analyst was found to have provided “technical or tactical instruction” to players during film and practice sessions and offered tactical advice during games.
