Michigan Wolverines basketball will speak with Wichita State guard transfer Colby Rogers, who intends on taking a visit to Ann Arbor, according to The Athletic‘s Tobias Bass. He’s also set to be in contact with and take trips to Kansas and Alabama.

Rogers is entering his sixth year of college basketball, set to play for his fourth program. He spent two seasons at Cal Poly (2019-21), one at Siena (2021-22) and two at Wichita State (2022-24). Rogers has one year of eligibility remaining.

The 6-foot-4, 190-pound graduate transfer is the No. 133 overall player and 28th-best shooting guard in the NCAA transfer portal, according to On3’s rankings.

Intel at the beginning of the month indicated that Kansas was the favorite for the Georgia native, but On3’s Joe Tipton also wrote that “a school close to his home base” may be able to lure him back.

Rogers led Wichita State with 16.4 points per game last season, adding 3.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 35 minutes. He shot 39.2 percent on twos (89-of-227), 40.3 percent on threes (95-of-236) and 82.4 percent on free throws (75-of-91).

The Covington, Ga., native ran 318 ball-screen possessions last season (including passes), generating 0.943 points per play, which ranked in the 68th percentile in the country. Rogers is a jump shooter through and through, with those shots making up 80.5 percent of his field goal attempts. He slotted in the 81st percentile in the country with a 53.4 effective field goal percentage on jumpers. He’s especially good off the dribble, posting a 48.2 effective field goal percentage on that type of shot (80th percentile).

The Shockers finished with a 15-19 overall record and 5-13 mark in conference play. They took on Michigan head coach Dusty May‘s Florida Atlantic crew on two occasions, losing both meetings. Rogers poured in 18 and 21 points in the two games, respectively, splashing a total of 8 three-pointers.

Rogers sat out the 2022-23 season due to NCAA transfer requirements. He led Siena with 14.1 points per game, making 42.9 percent of his three-point attempts (73-of-170), in 2021-22, earning second-team All-Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference honors.

He led Cal Poly in scoring each of his two seasons. He appeared in 49 games with 25 starts, registering 10 points per game in his two-year career there. In 2020-21, he put up 12.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists per contest.

An unranked recruit in the 2019 class, Rogers attended Roselle (N.J.) Catholic.
