Sam Scroggins, a 6-foot-5, 245-pound redshirt freshman defensive end, has transferred from Minnesota to Division I-AA Southeast Missouri State. Scroggins will be eligible to play immediately for the Indians. Scroggins was recruited to play tight end for the Gophers, but will move to the defensive side of the field for Southeast Missouri State.

Sam Scroggins signed with the Gophers in February in 2004. He did not play last season and was redshirted. Scroggins was named to the SuperPrep Midlands 66 Team. He earned all-state, all-area, all-county and all-city status in his senior year at Florissant (MO) McCluer North.

Scroggins was a two-time all-conference selection who had 14 receptions for 210 yards with two scores during his career. He was named team captain prior to 2003 campaign and was a honor roll student.

Southeast opens the season on Thursday, Sept. 1, hosting highly ranked Southern Illinois, in a 6 p.m. game that will serve as the 75th anniversary of Houck Stadium, which opened on Oct. 3, 1930, when Southeast hosted Southern Illinois. Southeast was 3-8 last season.

Scroggins will join recent Wake Forest transfer Aaron McKenzie, a 6-foot-2, 290-pound defensive tackle to improve a defense that allowed 40.4 points and 492.8 yard per game.
