Gold Coast will unveil their fourth Academy graduate from last year's draft, with first-round selection Jake Rogers to line up against the Swans on Sunday.

Rogers, who was taken with Pick 14 at the National Draft last November, is a product out of Broadbeach, Queensland and ranked as one of the leading midfielders in his class.

A hard-nosed and defensive-minded ball-winner, Rogers was an integral part of the Allies' National Championships title last year, with the Suns youngster earning Team of the Year honours.

Having joined fellow Suns Academy prospects Jed Walter, Ethan Read and Will Graham in landing on the club's AFL list, Rogers is now set to follow suit with a debut at senior level.

The teenager had dealt with a back issue that was sustained during his draft campaign, with the end of his recovery, coupled with strong form at VFL level, seeing the Suns call on Rogers for this week's trip to the SCG.

“Jake has worked incredibly hard to get here and we couldn't be happier to see him earn the chance to play his first game this weekend,” coach Damien Hardwick said.

“The most important thing is that he enjoys it, and he's got 40-odd brothers who are going to help him through the journey as well.”

Rogers is the Suns' fifth debutant of 2024, with Walter, Read, Graham and fellow 2023 draftee Sam Clohesy all earning senior selections already this season.

The Suns will name their 23-man squad for Sunday's game at 5:00pm (AEST) on Friday.
