Ole Miss lands one of the best wide receivers in the transfer portal: Zakhari Franklin has committed to Ole Miss after transferring from UTSA. He was a first-team All-C-USA selection the last two season at UTSA before deciding to transfer.
Franklin was the best remaining player in the portal. He had 174 catches, 2,164 receiving yards, and 27 touchdowns in his two season with the Roadrunners, with 15 of those touchdowns coming last season. He'll be a huge target for Lane Kiffin and the Rebels to utilize in the passing game.
Friday, June 2nd
Oklahoma lands a big-time commit from Tennessee out of the transfer portal: Da'Jon Terry has committed to Oklahoma after transferring from Tennessee. He also initially signed with Kansas in 2019, before transferring to Tennessee.

Roberts was apart of the 2018 recruiting class at Iowa. He played in 33 games there and started a total of four games for the Hawkeyes. He'll be sought after in the portal because teams need depth in the secondary still.

Beasley is a three-star recruit out of California and is now closer to being home. He didn't do much at Jackson State last season, but should be a key contributor for a San Diego State team that has excelled a lot on defense in the past few years.
Saturday, May 27th
Another Sanders ends up at Colorado: Shilo Sanders has transferred from Jackson State to Colorado. He originally committed to South Carolina and redshirted his first season before heading to Jackson State.
Shilo Sanders doesn't have the talent of Shedeur, but it's different because of the positions. Still, Shilo Sanders should be a rotational piece for the Buffaloes in the secondary at safety. The Buffaloes are now a family affair with Deion Sanders, Shedeur Sanders, and now Shilo Sanders.
Friday, May 26th
Penn State loses a running back to Notre Dame: Devyn Ford has committed to play for Notre Dame after transferring from Penn State. He didn't see much time at Penn State and only had 500 total yards during his time there.
He was a four-star recruit out of Virginia and still has a lot of potential in college football. He should be a big help for Notre Dame in their backfield. He'll see a good amount of time with Notre Dame being a run-first team.
Tennessee loses a defensive lineman to the transfer portal: Da'Jon Terry has entered the transfer portal after two seasons in Knoxville.
Terry was decently productive for the Volunteers and had 35 tackles, six tackles for loss, and three sacks. Terry was in Kansas before transferring to Tennessee and is now in the portal once again for one more year. He should be highly sought after for teams because most teams always need depth on the defensive line.
Michigan State adds a boost to their receiving corps: Alante Brown has transferred to Michigan State after leaving Nebraska this offseason. He spent three years with Cornhuskers and didn't do much. He spent most of his time as a returner in punts and kicks.
Brown was a three-star recruit out of Illinois, so he's still staying in Big Ten country. At Nebraska, he only had 22 catches for 262 receiving yards. He should get a good amount of playing time with the Spartans, especially with Keon Coleman transferring out of East Lansing.
Cincinnati adds a big boost to it's receiving corps through the transfer portal: Xzavier Henderson has transferred to Cincinnati after leaving Florida. Henderson was a key receiver for Florida the past three seasons and now will be for the Bearcats.
He was a four-star recruit from Florida so he's moving far away from home. In his three seasons at Florida, he had 73 catches for 835 receiving yards, and five touchdowns. He also has experience in the return game for both punts and kicks too. Henderson should be a big boost for Cincinnati in the receiving corps this season.
Thursday, May 25th
Ole Miss adds another transfer to help out his defense: Jadon Canady has transferred from Tulane to Ole Miss to help bolster the Rebels' pass defense. He did not play last year, but had a great year in 2021.
Canady played in 12 games in 2021. He had 55 total tackles, 42 solo tackles, 2.5 for loss, two interceptions, and two pass deflections. He was a three-star recruit from Florida, and comes into a Power Five school after the production he had at Tulane. He should be a big contributor for the Rebels this year in the secondary.
Louisville adds a quarterback from the transfer portal: Harrison Bailey has transferred to Louisville from UNLV and then was at Tennessee for two years before that. He goes and joins Jeff Brohm to get better on offense now.
Bailey is a former four-star recruit out of Georgia and is closer to home now at Louisville too. He has a chance to improve a lot under Brohm if he can win the starting job at Louisville. He hasn't lived up to his potential yet, but he could now.
UMass loses an All-Independent corner to the transfer portal: Josh Wallace is transferring from UMass after being a four-year starter and two-year captain for the Minutemen. He'll be sought after by bigger programs because of his size and production.
He was at UMass since 2019 and should be an instant contributor wherever he ends up. He had 41 tackles and two interceptions last season for UMass. He also stands at 6-foot and weighs 190 pounds. He'll contribute and be a big leader next year too.
Wednesday, May 24th
USC loses an offensive lineman to the transfer portal: Jason Rodriguez has decided to transfer from USC after only playing in six games since he came to the Trojans in 2019.
He's a former four-star recruit from California, and he initially retired from football in January, but is now testing the transfer waters to see what's out there. He should be a highly sought after transfer because teams always need help on the offensive line.
Monday, May 22nd
Vanderbilt gains a big-time recruit on defense out of the transfer portal: Prince Kollie has committed to Vanderbilt after transferring from Notre Dame after two years in South Bend as a linebacker.
Kollie joins back up Clark Lea, who was his primary recruiter at Notre Dame. After two years, he has 33 tackles and he played in all 13 games for Notre Dame and he blocked a punt last season too. He'll be a big addition for a Vanderbilt team that needs as much help as possible across the board, but mainly on defense with Clark Lea being a defensive-minded coach. This is a good pickup for both sides.
Sunday, May 21st
Former Jackson State wide receiver commits to Auburn: Shane Hooks has committed to Hugh Freeze and Auburn after transferring from Jackson State after Deion Sanders left for Colorado. He started his college career at Ohio for one year before he transferred to Jackson State to play for Deion.
Hooks was a three-star recruit out of Florida, so he comes to Auburn closer to home too. He has two years of eligibility left and should be a massive target for the Tigers in the receiving corps. He had 80 catches, 947 receiving yards, and 12 touchdowns for his career at Jackson State. He should be a big help for the Tigers if needed.
SMU gets a big-time wide receiver commit out of the transfer portal: Jordan Hudson has committed to SMU after transferring from TCU. He's a former five-star recruit out of Texas from last year's recruiting class.
He rarely saw the field last year and only had 14 catches and three touchdowns on the year for the Horned Frogs. Hudson transferred for playing time because the TCU receiving corps already has a lot of depth. He's a massive pickup for the Mustangs and should have a giant role in their offense next season.
Saturday, May 20th
Arizona lands some help in the wide receiving corps from the portal: Montana Lemonious-Craig has committed to Arizona after transferring from Colorado. He'll have two more years of eligibility left.
Craig had 23 catches, 359 receiving yards, and three touchdowns last season. He was also the star of Colorado's spring game where he had three catches for 154 receiving yards, and two touchdowns in that game alone. Craig comes into an already elite receiving corps at Arizona where he'll join Tetairoa McMillan and Jacob Cowing as the two main receivers, and he'll give them even more flexibility there on offense.
Friday, May 19th
Ole Miss lands a big transfer for the defensive line: Isaac Ukwu has committed to Ole Miss after playing for James Madison the last three seasons. He joins Ole Miss as a grad transfer on the defensive line to try and upgrade his NFL draft stock.
Ukwu has 87 tackles, 27.5 tackles for loss, 16.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, a fumble recovery, and five pass breakups during his whole time with James Madison. He's going to be a massive piece for the Ole Miss defense and he should start there right away.

Thursday, May 18th
Ole Miss adds some help on the defensive line out of the portal: Stephon Wynn has transferred from Nebraska to Ole Miss to help on the defensive line. He'll be in his sixth season of college next year.
Wynn started at Alabama and was with the Crimson Tide for four years, before transferring to Nebraska last season, and now Ole Miss. Wynn has played in 24 career games and has 38 total tackles, 10 solo tackles, one pass deflection, and one fumble recovery. Wynn should provide some help for the Rebels on the defensive line for one last year in college football.
LSU adds some depth to their secondary through the transfer portal: Andre Sam has transferred to LSU from Marshall. He's a Louisiana native, but wasn't highly rated in high school at all. He started at McNeese State and then went to Marshall before ending up at LSU.
He provides some experience and depth for the Tigers as a grad transfer at cornerback. He should be very good in Brian Kelly's defense in Baton Rouge. The Tigers are loading up on defense and this is a big pickup for them.
Wednesday, May 17th
Florida State gains a new wide receiver: Keon Coleman is transferring to Florida State after leaving Michigan State after two years in East Lansing. He joins a deep receiving corps that has a chance to be unstoppable.
Coleman is a former four-star recruit who's from Louisiana, so he'll be closer to home. He played basketball briefly for the Spartans, before committing to football the most. In 12 games, last year Coleman had 58 catches, 798 receiving yards, and seven touchdowns. Coleman joins a Florida State offense that should be one of the best in all of college football with Jordan Travis leading the way at quarterback.
Tuesday, May 16th
Colorado brings in a big running back from Houston: Alton McCaskill joins Deion and the Buffaloes after transferring over from Houston. He's a former four-star recruit out of Texas and brings over a lot of talent to Colorado.
McCaskill comes into this season after missing all of last season due to a knee injury. He had 961 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns the year before when he was healthy. He should be in line to start for the Buffaloes, especially because of the amount of talent he has as a running back.
LSU brings over a running back from Notre Dame: Logan Diggs has transferred to LSU and followed his former coach Brian Kelly to Baton Rouge. He was a three-star recruit in Brian Kelly's last class at Notre Dame, and comes back to Louisiana because it's his home state.
Diggs joins an LSU running backfield to add depth and talent to an already talented group. He also brings some familiarity because he knows the offense that Brian Kelly wants to run. Diggs could end up starting for LSU too, but it just depends on what Kelly wants to run.
Louisville adds a quarterback from the transfer portal: Brady Allen has committed to Louisville after transferring from Purdue. He's following his former Purdue coach to Louisville in Jeff Brohm.
Allen only spent one year at Purdue and is a former four-star recruit out Indiana, so he's leaving his home state. He should be one of the favorites to take over at quarterback in Louisville just because he's very familiar with Brohm's offense from Purdue. He's lined up to be the Cardinals quarterback of the future too.
Monday, May 15th
Georgia adds a big running back transfer from the portal: Len'Neth Whitehead has committed to Georgia after transferring from Tennessee. He comes back home since he's from Athens, and he brings a ton of potential over in the running game. He's also coming off missing all of last season due to injury.
Whitehead is a former four-star recruit and he has three years of eligibility left. He's a massive running back, who stands at 6-foot-2 and weighs 225 pounds. He technically comes to Georgia as a walk-on, but he'll definitely see time due to his size and potential he's shown during his time at Tennessee.
Oregon adds help in the secondary out of the portal: Nikko Reed has committed to Oregon after transferring from Colorado. He has two years of eligibility left for the Ducks after playing cornerback for Colorado.
Reed was a part of the mass exodus from Boulder that followed after Deion Sanders took over as the head coach. He was a three-star recruit out California and should provide some much-needed depth for the Ducks in their secondary. He'll also be a good veteran presence in the secondary too.
Saturday, May 13th
Notre Dame picks up a big defensive commit out of the portal: Antonio Carter has committed to Notre Dame after transferring from Rhode Island. He's a 6-foot-1, 200-pound cornerback, who started at Rhode island the last two years. Last year, he had 60 tackles, 10 pass breakups, and an interception.
Notre Dame was competing against LSU, Florida, Wisconsin, and Ole Miss for Carter's services and they won out. He committed on the visit he had to Notre Dame and should be in the running to start right away for the Fighting Irish in the secondary at cornerback.
Oregon picked up two big commitments from transfers for the offense: Kaden Ludwick has transferred from Colorado to Oregon. He'll also have a position change after he was a linebacker at Colorado but he'll be a tight end now. He was a three-star recruit out of Oregon so he's coming back home. He'll see the field and provide depth more after not doing much with the Buffaloes last year.
Gary Bryant also committed to Oregon to help provide depth for the Ducks in receiving corps that should be very good. He didn't see the field a ton for USC for his ranking. He was a four-star recruit out of Southern California. He was a receiver and returned punts and kicks for the Trojans. He had 44 receptions, 579 receiving yards, and seven touchdowns last season. Bryant should thrive for the Ducks in their receiving corps.
Deion lands another Florida State transfer out of the portal: Florida State safety, Travis Jay, has decided to transfer to Colorado and learn from Deion. He was in Tallahassee for the last three years, but didn't play last year. In total, he had 43 tackles and three interceptions for the Seminoles.
Jay will be able to provide some much-needed experience for a Colorado secondary that has been completely torn down to the studs and is now going to be completely different from last year. He's a former four-star recruit out of Florida, so he's leaving his home state for more playing time too. He's an interesting piece for Colorado at safety should start right away to help a defense that needs it.
Friday, May 12th
Ole Miss gained a defensive line transfer from Georgia Tech: Akelo Stone has transferred to Ole Miss after leaving Georgia Tech through the portal. He spent three seasons at Georgia Tech and appeared in 21 games. He had total 17 tackles, 7 for loss, 2 sacks, and one pass breakup.
Stone is a former three-star recruit out of Georgia and is leaving his home state for more playing time. He's a big body that'll succeed at Ole Miss because he's exactly what they needed on the defensive line after all the transfers the Rebels have had. This could be a big help for Ole Miss on defense.
Miami gains a big-time receiver out of the portal: Tyler Harrell, a Miami native, is transferring to Miami as a graduate transfer after one year at Alabama, and then three seasons at Louisville before that.
Harrell was at Louisville for three seasons and only had 20 receptions, 559 receiving yards, and six touchdowns. At Alabama, he only appeared in six total games and had two receptions for 18 receiving yards. He had injury issues most of the year after that. He should be a very good piece for Miami and will provide some much-needed experience for the Hurricanes receiving corps too.
Alabama picks up a big-time playmaker in the secondary: Jaylen Key has committed to Alabama after transferring from UAB. He's entering his sixth year of college and should be a big contributor for the Crimson Tide at cornerback.
Last season, he had 60 tackles, with 4.5 for loss, had three interceptions, and forced two fumbles. He can compete with SEC competition too because he had 12 tackles for the Blazers against LSU last year. Expect Key to start right away for the Crimson Tide and provide some much-needed experience for them.
Thursday, May 11th
South Carolina picks up a big defensive line transfer: Jatius Geer has decided on transferring to South Carolina after leaving the Orange in the transfer portal. he's a former three-star recruit out of South Carolina so he'll be going closer to home.
Geer had 3.5 sacks and 1 forced fumble last year for Syracuse. He should have a big role for his home state team. He adds a big body on the defensive line for a team that desperately needs help in that area. Geer has a very good chance to start for the Gamecocks too.
Wednesday, May 10th
Former Auburn tight end finds a new home: Landen King has transferred to Utah after transferring from Auburn. He chose the Utes over Colorado after visiting both schools. He was a three-star recruit out of Texas and has a lot of potential, despite not playing a ton for the Tigers.
Utah has utilized tight ends very well recently, with the biggest indicator of that being how Dalton Kincaid played last year and Brant Kuithe too before he got injured. Tight ends are a massive part of Utah's offense and so King has a chance to thrive for Utah in this offense. This fit makes perfect sense.
Former Nebraska and Texas quarterback finds a new home out of the portal: Casey Thompson has decided to transfer from Nebraska and is once again in the transfer portal after transferring from Texas last year to Nebraska. He comes over to Florida Atlantic with one year of eligibility remaining.
Thompson is a former four-star recruit that didn't ever quite find his footing at either Texas or Nebraska. He is still a very talented and experienced quarterback and one that the Owls have never had in their program before. He had 2,400 passing yards and 17 touchdown passes to 10 interceptions last year for the Cornhuskers. He's a big prospect for Florida Atlantic and he should thrive in Tom Herman's offensive system.
Tuesday, May 9th
Former Georgia Bulldog decides to transfer in-state: Dominick Blaylock has transferred to Georgia Tech after transferring away from Georgia in the portal. He joins the yellow jackets as a grad transfer for two years.
He's a former four-star recruit out of Georgia, so he's stayed in-state his whole time in college. He's had a very injury-plagued college career, but he offers a lot of talent for a revamped Georgia Tech offense. Blaylock should excel after finding a home in Atlanta with Buster Faulkner as the offensive coordinator after being an offensive analyst in Athens for the past three years.
Arizona State picks up a big wide receiver from a former Colorado receiver: Jordyn Tyson was a big bright spot for Colorado last season and he entered the transfer portal after going through spring practice with Deion Sanders.
He had 22 receptions, 470 receiving yards, and four touchdowns last year, while also having one punt return touchdown too last season as a freshman at Colorado. He should be an immediate impact player for the Sun Devils and should start right away in the receiving corps. Playing time seems like it was a big factor because Tyson picked Arizona State after also being recruited by Oklahoma and Auburn too. Tyson should also thrive in the type of offense that Kenny Dillingham will run in Tempe too.
Ohio State picks up a big defensive line transfer: Tywone Malone has transferred to Ohio State after leaving Ole Miss. Malone provides a massive body for the Buckeyes on the defensive line, standing at 6-foot-4 and weighing 300 pounds.
Malone played in all 13 games for Ole Miss this year and had 13 total tackles, two for loss, and two sacks on the Rebels' line. He's a former four-star recruit out of New Jersey and should be an immediate impact for the Buckeyes, and potentially start because of his experience combined with the talent he has too.
Alabama picks up a transfer for the secondary: Trey Amos is headed to Alabama to help out in the cornerback room after transferring away from Louisiana after two seasons. He was a three-star recruit out of Louisiana and has two years of eligibility left.
He ended up being one of the most sought-after transfers out of the portal with 13 different schools contacting him with LSU, Michigan, Oregon, and Miami contacting him to name a few of the marquee schools interested. Amos had 35 tackles and eight pass breakups last season for Louisiana, and should compete for a starting job in Tuscaloosa right away because of his experience.
Colorado gets a commitment from a big defensive line transfer: Arden Walker has committed to Colorado after transferring from Missouri. He has three years of eligibility left and brings over a lot of potential after not seeing the field much at Missouri.
He's 6-foot-3 and 255-pounds off the edge. Colorado is getting a big talent off the edge. He has a lot of potential. He's also a former three-star recruit from Colorado, so he's coming back home to play for Deion Sanders.
Monday, May 8th
Former Nebraska running back and Vanderbilt cornerback find a new home in south beach: Ajay Allen has committed to Miami after transferring from Nebraska after one season in Lincoln. He's a former four-star recruit out of Louisiana, and could be a big asset for Miami.
Miami needs as much as it can get after last season and Allen is a good piece for them to get in the backfield. He has a chance to start for the Hurricanes too. He didn't do much in Lincoln last year, but he should thrive in Miami under Mario Cristobal.
Ja'Dais Richard is also going to Miami after transferring from Vanderbilt. He adds some much-needed talent in the defensive backfield at cornerback. He's a former four-star recruit out of Louisiana and played in 11 games last year.
Richard even started for Vanderbilt in those 11 games. He had six total tackles, three solo, one tackle for loss, two passes, and one sack. He'll be a big factor for the Hurricanes this year because they struggled a bit in pass defense.
Ole Miss hosting a big wide receiver transfer: Keon Coleman is visiting Ole Miss tomorrow after entering the transfer portal out of Michigan State late in the process, just before the portal closed.
Coleman is a former four-star recruit out of Louisiana. He spent two seasons in East Lansing and had 12 starts there too. He also had 65 catches, 848 receiving yards, and eight touchdowns for the Spartans. He would be a huge pickup for an Ole Miss offense that thrives off weapons thanks to the way Lane Kiffin wants to play. This could be a great fit..
Sunday, May 7th
Utah gets a big wide receiver out of the transfer portal: Mycah Pittman transferred again after transferring from Oregon to Florida State. He only spent one year in Tallahassee before going back to the Pac-12 and joining Utah out of the portal.
Pittman has one year of eligibility left and had 32 receptions, 330 receiving yards, and three touchdowns last season in Tallahassee. He should be a big help for the Utes this year in the passing offense. He's a former four-star recruit out of California and provides immediate help for the Utes after they lost Dalton Kincaid to the draft.
Texas A&M adds quarterback insurance out of the transfer portal: Jaylen Henderson has committed to Texas A&M after transferring from Fresno State. He didn't see the field much at Fresno State, but he will help fortify the Aggies' quarterback room after Connor Weigman.
Henderson is a former three-star recruit out of California and he didn't see much of the field at Fresno State. He had five pass completions on eight attempts. He mainly backed up Jake Haener, who's now in the NFL. Henderson will add some experience and athleticism to the Texas A&M quarterback room, so this could be a decent fit.
A highly touted cornerback commits to USC out of the portal: Tre'quon Fegans has committed to USC after transferring out of Alabama after just one year in Tuscaloosa.
Fagans didn't see the field last year as a true freshman due to the Alabama secondary being one of the most crowded in all of college football. He's a former four-star recruit out of Alabama and he now goes to a USC team that needs as much help as possible on defense, especially in the secondary after how the Trojan secondary looked down the stretch last year. He could start right away for the Trojans next year.
Kentucky gets a big offensive lineman commitment: Ben Christman has decided to transfer to Kentucky after transferring from Ohio State. He was in Columbus for two years and now heads to Lexington with two years of eligibility left.
Christman is a former four-star recruit out of Ohio. He comes in as an interior offensive lineman where Kentucky has been loading up in the transfer portal on that end. Christman is the fourth offensive tackle Kentucky's added in the transfer portal, and he should be a huge help for the Wildcats on the interior.
Saturday, May 6th
Missouri lands a big offensive lineman commitment: Cam'Ron Johnson has decided to transfer to Missouri after transferring from Houston. He joins his former Offensive Line coach, Brandon Jones in Columbia.
Johnson was arguably the best offensive lineman available in the portal remaining. He was a First-Team All-AAC selection last year who started all 13 games for Houston at left guard. Over 556 snaps, Johnson allowed just one snap. He's a massive piece to a Missouri offense that needs to be better than it has been.
Ohio State transfer wide receiver finds a new home: Caleb Burton III has committed to Auburn after transferring Ohio State after one season in Columbus.
Burton is a former four-star recruit out of Texas and decided to transfer out of Ohio State due to playing time because of how crowded the Ohio State wide receiving corps is. He adds some much-needed help and depth to a receiving corps at Auburn that is going to be apart of a much more open and pass-happy offense under Hugh Freeze.
Friday, May 5th
Auburn lands a quarterback out of the transfer portal: Payton Thorne has committed to Hugh Freeze and Auburn after transferring away from Michigan State. He comes over as a grad transfer and has two years of eligibility left.
He holds the single-season record for touchdowns for the Spartans at quarterback in 2021 when he had 27 touchdown passes. He took a step back last year with 19 passing touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Thorne has talent and would immediately become the favorite to start at Auburn over Robby Ashford.
Thursday, May 4th
Arizona lands Michigan/Colorado transfer defensive end: Taylor Upshaw has committed to Arizona after initially committing to Colorado when he transferred from Michigan in the initial transfer period.
Upshaw has one year of eligibility left and will use it in the desert to bring in some experience and try and get to the NFL. He appeared in 38 games for Michigan and started two of those. The Florida native had 12 tackles, 4.5 for loss, 2 sacks, and 1 interception this past season. He's a massive get for an Arizona defense that needs all the help it can get.
Iowa gains a big wide receiver commitment: Kaleb Brown has committed to Iowa after transferring out of Ohio State. He didn't see the field last year because of how crowded the receiving room was in Columbus.
He's a former top-110 recruit and was a four-star recruit out of Illinois. He's a much-needed receiving threat for an Iowa offense that's in desperate need for any type of playmaking after struggling all year last year. This is a big pickup for the Hawkeyes.
Former Michigan State receiver visiting Florida State: Keon Coleman is set to visit Florida State this weekend after deciding to transfer from the Spartans this week before the transfer portal closed on April 30th.
He would be a massive get for a Seminoles team that is looking to make the College Playoff this year. Coleman will have three years of eligibility left and lead the Spartans last year with 58 catches, 798 yards, and seven touchdowns. He was immediately one of the biggest targets in the portal available, so if the Seminoles get him, it would be huge.
Colorado receives a wide receiver commit from a Marshall transfer: EJ Horton has committed to play at Colorado after transferring from Marshall.
In 12 games, he had 12 catches for 186 receiving yards and a touchdown. He didn't see the field much at Marshall, but adds much-needed depth to. a wide receiving room that needed it. He has a chance to play a key role in the Buffaloes offense too.
Former Ole Miss defensive lineman down to a few schools: Tywone Malone has heard from eight different schools since he decided to enter the transfer portal out of Ole Miss.

Wednesday, May 3rd
Arizona is hosting a big talent out of Michigan and Colorado: Taylor Upshaw recently transferred to Colorado out of Michigan during the fall transfer period, but has decided to transfer again out of Colorado during the spring.
Upshaw has a year of eligibility left and has ties to the Arizona coaching staff. He'd be a massive get for Arizona on defense. He's played in 37 career games at Michigan before deciding to transfer. He also saw time against TCU in the Playoff game too. This would be huge for an Arizona defense that needs talent and experience.
One of the best receivers in the portal is visiting Oklahoma: Jordyn Tyson is on a visit right now to see the Sooners. Tyson lead the Buffaloes in receiving yards and touchdowns last year and it came as a surprise he entered the transfer portal after Deion Sanders came to Boulder.
Tyson has heard from Auburn, Oklahoma, Cal, TCU, Washington State, Texas State, North Texas, BYU, Texas A&M, Indiana, West Virginia, South Florida, Kansas, Mississippi State, and Arizona State. Tyson is a hot commodity and will instantly find playing time wherever he ends up.
Former Cincinnati quarterback finds a new home: Ben Bryant has found a new home after transferring from the BearCats. Bryant has announced he's transferring to Northwestern to provide some help to a struggling offense that needs all the help it can get.
This was his third transfer after starting at Cincinnati, going to Eastern Michigan, and then back to Cincinnati, before deciding on transferring to Northwestern. He's a former three-star recruit out of Illinois, so this seems like him coming back closer to home.
Former Top 100 recruit visiting Arizona today: A former Top 100 recruit is visiting Arizona today, as Jalil Tucker, who played last season at Oregon, posted on Instagram in Tucson.
Tucker was one of the top ranked players in an elite Ducks' class in 2022, ranking No. 74 nationally in 247 Sports' 2022 composite rankings. He appeared in one game, making one tackle, before redshirting last season.
If the Wildcats could somehow land Tucker it'd be a much needed pick-up to add depth to a thin defense.
DII wide receiver is racking up offers: Jahdae Walker recently completed his second year at Division II Grand Valley State, and since entering the transfer portal has received offers from some of the biggest programs in college football.
According to his Twitter page, among the schools to offer the 6'4 receiver include Michigan State, Kentucky Texas A&M, Mississippi State, Illinois and Colorado.

Tuesday, May 2nd
Ole Miss loses an early enrollee as a transfer to Purdue: Braxton Myers has transferred from Ole Miss after enrolling early as a freshman cornerback, before deciding that he wanted to move on after his brief time in Oxford.
Myers now goes to Purdue where he has a chance to thrive for Ryan Walters in the secondary, especially with the focus Walters sets on defense overall. Myers has a lot of potential and was a four-star recruit out Texas. Look for Walters to use him well in the secondary.
Colorado gets a big commitment from one of the best defensive linemen in the transfer portal: Sav'ell Smalls transferred from Washington and is now headed to Colorado under Deion Sanders. He was a good player the last three years at Washington, but couldn't burst out as much as what was expected.
He appeared in 29 games in three years. He had 32 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, and a fumble recovery during his time in Seattle. He's a Washington native, and was five-star recruit coming out of high school there. He has a lot of potential still, and Deion Sanders might be the perfect coach to utilize that on the Buffaloes defensive line.
Auburn loses a quarterback to the transfer portal: TJ Finley has entered the transfer portal as a grad transfer out of Auburn. Finley started his college career at LSU, before transferring to Auburn, and now he's in the portal once again.
Finley started five games for LSU in 2020, before moving on to Auburn in 2021. He then started three games for Auburn in 2021 and won the job in 2022 before suffering an injury and not seeing the field again the rest of the year. He's a former three-star recruit out of Louisiana and should have a few suitors in the portal that need help at the quarterback position.
Former Michigan safety finds a new home in Florida: RJ Moten has committed to Florida, after transferring from Michigan after three years. He appeared in 25 games of the last two seasons in Ann Arbor, and had 66 total tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, two interceptions, and four pass deflections during his time there.
He's a former four-star recruit out of New Jersey and should provide immediate help to a Florida defense that needs some help on defense, and especially in the secondary too. This is an underrated pickup for Billy Napier and the Gators.
Michigan State actually gets some good transfer news: Michigan State actually got some good transfer news on Tuesday, as just days after three starters elected to hit the portal, one has withdrawn.
That player is starting cornerback Charles Brantley, who it appears as though will not be leaving East Lansing. He started 11 games for the Spartans last season, posting 48 tackles, 2 TFLs and an interception, with a team-high six pass breakups.
He was one of three former Spartan starters who announced they'd be leaving school on Sunday, joining starting quarterback Payton Thorne and leading receiver Keon Coleman.
Louisiana defensive back Trey Amos just became one of the hottest names in the portal: Trey Amos, a fifth-year player from Louisiana-Lafayette decided to enter the transfer portal right before the deadline, and has already become one of the hottest names in the portal.
Since entering the portal, Amos has already received offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Miami, Oregon and Ole Miss among others.
Amos finished the 2022 season with 35 tackles, a team-high eight pass breakups and had one blocked kick. At 6'1, he has prototypical size for the position and is seen as a potential NFL prospect. He spent the first three years of his career playing for Billy Napier at Florida.

Miami makes major addition in the portal: Jaden Davis has committed to Miami after transferring out of Oklahoma. He comes into Miami as a grad transfer out of Norman.
