Key Nebraska DL heads for transfer portal following conclusion of spring practice
Just a few weeks after Nebraska wrapped up spring practice, a key defensive lineman has decided to enter the NCAA transfer portal.
Casey Rogers, who was kept out of spring practice while recovering from injury, has reportedly entered the transfer portal. Steve Marik of Hail Varsity reported on the news on Wednesday afternoon.
Rogers was expected to be a key piece along the defensive line for the Huskers entering the 2022 season. He leaves after having played in 19 career games at Nebraska.

Due to a fall camp injury, Rogers missed the first 5 games of the 2021 season. He appeared in the final 7 games of a 3-9 season, though, tallying 17 tackles, including 3 for loss.
Over the course of his four seasons in Lincoln, Rogers was credited with 42 stops, 6 tackles for loss, 2 pass break-ups and 1.5 sacks. Most of that work came during the 2020 season, when he appeared in all 8 games and totaled 25 tackles, 3 for loss and a sack.
Rogers did not play in 2018, using that year as a redshirt season.
Rogers will have two years of eligibility to use at his next destination.
