Ricky Rogers, a top football player in the WPIAL Class of 2014, will be playing for a different team this season.
Rogers, who was a starting receiver as a freshman and sophomore at Keystone Oaks, enrolled at Gateway High School, according to Gateway coach Terry Smith.
Rogers is a 6-foot-3, 190-pound junior who already has a scholarship offer from Rutgers. Rogers has been home-schooled while living in the Keystone Oaks district. Smith said that although Rogers now has a residence in the Gateway district, he will continue to be home-schooled.
Rogers also attended Lincoln Park for a few months as a freshman. It is highly likely the WPIAL will have a hearing on the transfer. Gateway has been a destination for a number of transfers in recent years.
Montour lineman Matt Barone had made a verbal commitment to Connecticut, but decided to accept a scholarship from Temple. Recently, Montour lineman Tyler Haddock also changed his mind from Kent State to Temple.
