A source has told SBNation.com that leading Tennessee WR Da'Rick Rogers is looking to transfer, and FCS school Georgia State could be a real possibility. Panthersville.com, a Georgia State site, is confirming that the Panthers are the front-runners for Rogers' services.

A five-star WR in high school, Rogers was one of the most highly coveted recruits in the country in 2010, flipping on a commitment to play with Georgia right before National Signing Day to come to Tennessee.

In his second season with the Volunteers, the 6'3 215 WR led the SEC in catches (67) and receiving yards (1,040) while also scoring 9 TD's.

However, his time in Knoxville has been marred by off-the-field incidents, most notably an altercation at an off-campus bar in 2010.

Because Georgia State is an FCS school, although that may change in the near future, Rogers would be eligible to play immediately if he transferred. Their Week 2 game against Tennessee in Neyland Stadium would suddenly become very intriguing as well.
