Rogers (6 feet 4 inches, 225 pounds) will have three seasons of eligibility. He probably will have to sit out next season under NCAA transfer rules but could receive a waiver to play immediately.
If he plays right away, Rogers will challenge incumbent starter Kenyon Oblad and former starter Armani Rogers.
Rogers was highly recruited two years ago out of Parkway High School in Bossier City, Louisiana. Louisiana State, Georgia, Texas, Baylor and Texas A&M were among the schools that reportedly offered him a scholarship.
But Rogers struggled to come back from a major knee injury he suffered as a high school senior in 2017. He also developed a drop-foot condition, according to the Fort Worth (Texas) Star-Telegram, and on Nov. 1 announced he was entering the NCAA transfer portal.
