Rogers is one of the guys every college program should be looking at with his speed and a respectable sized 6-2 frame that makes it hard for defensive backs to have a good chance at making a play against Rogers when the ball is in the air. Derrick holds offers from Ole Miss, Marshall, and Florida A&M. Rogers was second on the team for receiving yards with 727 and was among the team leaders with 11 touchdowns on the year as well in his 12 games of action.
