Former TCU quarterback Justin Rogers has a new home.

Rogers originally committed to TCU over his home-state blue blood LSU, causing TCU fans to celebrate. As one of the highest rated recruits in TCU history Rogers was crowned as the next best TCU quarterback before even stepping foot on campus, but a horrific knee injury early in his high school senior season campaign delayed his coronation.

Still he came to campus with a tremendous amount of hype in the spring of 2018, and it was anticipated that in 2019 he and Shawn Robinson would battle it out for the top spot on the depth chart.

Now, neither quarterback will be in uniform for the Frogs.

At UNLV Rogers will join a crowded QB room that has seniors Armani Rogers and Cal transfer Max Gilliam and sophomore Kenyon Oblad. Rogers and Oblad split time behind center in 2019, with Rogers dominating on the ground, and Oblad throwing for 18 touchdowns.

Justin will sit out a year before becoming eligible, but he’ll likely be in a battle with Oblad for the starting job in 2021.
