Nebraska Football Defensive Line Transfer Casey Rogers Commits To Oregon Football


Nebraska defensive line transfer Casey Rogers enlisted in Oregon.

He announced his decision on social media on Wednesday morning.

Rogers entered the transfer portal on April 21 after spending the past four seasons at Nebraska (redshirted in 2018), where he played under new Oregon defensive line coach Tony Tuioti.

While at Lincoln, he appeared in 19 games and recorded 42 total tackles, 1.5 sacks and six tackles for loss.

He suffered an injury during fall camp leading up to the 2021 season, which caused him to miss the first five games. He played in the final seven games of the season, recording 17 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss and 0.5 sacks.

The 6-foot-5, 295-pound junior picked Oregon after pulling out a top three that also included USC and Auburn. He was in Eugene on the weekend for a visit and was offered by the Ducks coaching staff shortly after the trip.

The Ducks have been active on the transfer portal this offseason, landing wide receiver commitments Chase Cota (UCLA), quarterback Bo Nix (Auburn), defensive lineman Sam ‘Taki’ Taimani (Washington) and defensive lineman Jordan Riley (Nebraska). The inside of Oregon’s defensive line, where Rogers plans to line up, is brimming with experience and production as he joins Brandon Dorlus, Popo Aumavae and Keyon Ware-Hudsonwho have strengthened the interior of Oregon in recent seasons.

Rogers will have one year of eligibility at Oregon.
