Evaluating the Mississippi State 2020 Recruiting Class: Quarterback Will Rogers

NCAA Football: Southern Mississippi at Mississippi State Matt Bush-USA TODAY Sports

The early national signing period has come and gone and the Mississippi State Bulldogs have a top 25 recruiting class. Coach Joe Moorhead and his staff did a good job of filling the holes that the NFL draft and graduation cause. We will start a series of articles where having a competent signal caller is what fans and coaches look for every recruiting class.

Brandon High School product Will Rogers is one of those players that is a student of the game. Moorhead has been impressed with Rogers’ habits and will not have any problem getting him to study the playbook. Clearly, Rogers will put the work in, in the classroom and should make the quarterback room even better.

A question some Bulldogs’ fans may have is does Rogers have the arm strength and accuracy needed to play at the SEC level? Accuracy is not an issue for Rogers, Rogers passed for 3,608 yards and 38 touchdowns, during his senior year. The most impressive part about his senior season is that he only threw three interceptions. Arm strength will not be a concern and he should be able to adapt to the SEC without any trouble. Mississippi State fans just need to be patient, this young man could turn out to be a solid SEC quarterback. All he needs is some time and some work and this will be a fun quarterback to watch.
