Is Tennessee's Da'Rick Rogers the next star player planning on leaving the SEC?

The Volunteers wide receiver, who did not participate in the team's practice Thursday morning because head coach Derek Dooley told the local media Rogers has "to do some stuff" in order to return, is considering a transfer to Georgia State, according to

If he does make the move, he would be able to play immediately because the Panthers are an FCS school. Coincidentally -- or perhaps not -- Rogers could play against the Vols this season because Georgia State plays Dooley's squad on September 8 in Knoxville.

Rogers told the website that he is considering a transfer and that "Georgia State would be the only place I'd look at."

Last fall, Rogers led the Vols with 67 receptions for 1,040 yards. If Rogers does leave, it will be yet another blow for Dooley, who enters a make-or-break third season in Knoxville.
