OT: Where is Davion Rogers

Submitted by Michigania on February 13th, 2011 at 2:20 PM

Am wondering if anyone knows whatever happened to LB Davion Rogers ?  I know he is not on the roster and left the team, but I have heard no word of transfer, and also wonder if he is still enrolled, and whether or not Hoke would take him back if he qualifies to play. Reason I ask is because he looked a future gem.  Thanks.

you've been able to help a few kids out doesn't mean you can help every kid... RR was getting into a bad habit of bringing in kids that either had questionable academics and or character issues.. he lost 4 kids in one class because of one or the other... go back and look at each one of his recruiting classes and there is at least one kid that either didn't get into school or left the team after one year for one of the reasons i mentioned above (i'll sort of give him a pass on 2008 because o'neill and wermers were LC recruits)...

Last time i checked, a player by the name of Tom Brady went in the 6th round. He makes a decent living. People need to get rid of  the idea that you have to be drafted in a higher round. I am in no way saying the kid is as talented as Tom Brady. I am just saying, the round you are drafted in, only determines your first contract.

True. You have to factor in the average lifespan of a pros career tho. That first contract means a lot to most players and we are talking 4-6 years. Plus you can not compare every late pick with Tom Brady. Later drafties i would imagine have a much higher fail rate than early rounders.

get himself straightened out before everyone starts getting their combine stopwatches out. sheesh. 

hopefully being closer to home he'll get support. unfortunately for sooo many kids from around here it doesn't usually work like that.
