As goes with most SEC programs, there is a handful of turnover from year to year for the Texas A&M Football team. And after a hectic 2020 season, the amount of roster turnover is higher than usual, with more players than ever entering the transfer portal.
Thankfully, college football’s transfer portal isn’t as full as college basketball’s but this hasn’t made the Aggies safe from any losses.
A couple of days ago, former Texas A&M Football safety Derrick Tucker announced that he’d be transferring to Tennessee State, a relatively small football school. Presumably, he didn’t see any playing time on his horizon in College Station.
And while Tucker was one of the first to find a new home, he wasn’t the only player who departed from the Texas A&M Football team due to a lack of playing time.
Former Texas A&M Football defensive tackle Josh Rogers announced his transfer to Buffalo
On Tuesday, former Aggie defensive tackle Josh Rogers announced his transfer destination. He’ll be joining a former Texas A&M Football assistant coach in Maurice Linguist, who recently took over the head coaching position for Buffalo.
Buffalo had a lot of players enter the transfer portal season, so Rogers will likely be part of a new-look unit for the Bulls.
For the Aggies, the departure of Rogers won’t have a huge impact on the game. His presence would have added depth but he may have found himself dug deep into the depth chart. His departure is best for everybody.
In all likelihood, Rogers entered the transfer portal as a result of the reality that he was not going to be filling in for Bobby Brown III, who departed for the NFL Draft after the 2020 season. This won’t be an issue for the Aggies, who have as much talent as anybody on a defensive line unit that will likely be among the best in college football next season.
Texas A&M Football fans will be happy to watch him in a bigger role with Buffalo. Hopefully, he can find playing time on a team with less talent at the defensive tackle position (or any position).
