It does not appear that Will Rogers will be coming to Kentucky.

According to Jon Hale of the Lexington Herald-Leader, Rogers to Kentucky is unlikely to happen.

So for now anyways, it looks like Kentucky will have to look elsewhere for Devin Leary’s replacement.

The Kentucky Wildcats are in the market for a transfer, so why not get one of the SEC’s all-time passing leaders?

On Friday, news broke that Mississippi State QB Will Rogers is set to enter the transfer portal.

KSR’s Matt Jones followed that up with an interesting tidbit, saying people in Starkville believe Rogers could land at Kentucky, though Jones also said he hasn’t heard that from Kentucky’s side.

Rogers is coming off a so-so season for the Bulldogs under first-year coach Zach Arnett, who was recently fired before even completing the season. In eight games, Rogers has completed 59.9% of his passes for 1,626 yards, 12 TDs, and four picks. He missed four games due to injury, including Kentucky’s 24-3 win at Starkville.

Much of Rogers’ collegiate success came while playing under the late Mike Leach from 2020-22. For his career, he’s completed 69.4% of his passes for 12,315 and 94 touchdowns vs. 28 interceptions.

This will be one to watch.
