VALDOSTA, Ga - WTXL — Earlier this week ABC 27 reported that the number one ranked quarterback from the class of 2021 in Division II football; Rogan Wells announced his decision to transfer from Valdosta State in hopes of finding a Division I program to end his collegiate football career with.

Since then Wells has found a new home at Tusculum University where his brother Rylan (Wells) is an assistant coach. The move also brings Wells closer to his family in which Valdosta State head coach Gary Goff acknowledged was an important factor to the Fort Mill, South Carolina native. It doesn’t make the decision any easier to cope with, but VSU is already looking ahead to a very bright future with the talent they bring back for this upcoming season.

“Obviously when you first hear, it’s shocking and hard to wrap your mind around but let me start by saying Rogan is a great young man and a great football player. I think the world of him and wish him nothing but the best," Goff told ABC 27. "I was disappointed in his decision but at the same time I absolutely understand it. We’re very fortunate though because one or two players don’t make up our team, we’ve got a lot of great, talented young men here. And I think we all know Ivory Durham is a very, very talented young man. I’m sleeping very well at night, so I’m fine.”
