Sunday, June 11th
Miami adds a linebacker commit out of the transfer portal: KJ Cloyd has transferred from Louisville to Miami. He spent most of his time in Louisville before deciding to head to Miami for his last season this year.
He's from Missouri and had a decent career at Louisville before deciding to transfer out to Miami. He brings in some much-needed experience for the Miami defense and brings in depth for Mario Cristobal this season. He should be a decent pickup for the Hurricanes this season.

Wallace had 41 tackles and two interceptions last season. Wallace visited Oklahoma and Virginia Tech, and then also got offers from Penn State, Michigan State, and Iowa.

Saturday, June 3rd
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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
The 6-foot-4, 300 pound lineman was a four-star recruit out of New Jersey and is a hot commodity in the transfer portal with three years of eligibility remaining. He's heard from Miami (FL), Michigan State, Penn State, Florida State, Ohio State, Michigan, USC, and Oregon. These marquee programs are interested in his services so he has no shortage of options.
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.
As a sophomore in 2022, Walker accumulated 636 yards, with four touchdowns on 30 catches.
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.
Monday, May 1st
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.
He comes in to Miami after being very good in Oklahoma. He provides some good size and experience for Miami for a pass defense that really needs help after last year. He's also from South Florida, so the fit made sense because it's him coming back home after being a four-star recruit out of high school.
West Virginia loses a running back to the transfer portal: Tony Mathis transferred out of West Virginia after four seasons. He appeared in 31 games and started 11 games during his time in Morgantown.
His best season was last year where he had 135 carries, 562 rushing yards, and five touchdowns. He was a three-star recruit out of Georgia and he should be sought after in the transfer portal, especially after the year he had last year where he started the majority of games for the Mountaineers.
Colorado flips a former Cincinnati commit out of Auburn: Tarvarish Dawson transferred out of Auburn recently and committed to Cincinnati initially out of the portal, before flipping today to Colorado.
Dawson is a wide receiver that still has some talent and he'll be used in a variety of ways at Colorado for the three years of eligibility he has remaining. Dawson should be used a lot in the slot and could thrive for the Buffaloes in a new offense with Sean Lewis in Boulder.
Colorado gets a big commitment from a talented defensive back: Omarion Cooper has committed to play for Colorado after transferring out of Florida State.
He'll join Deion Sanders and the Colorado Buffaloes this year with three years of eligibility left. He also cited how as a defensive back he wants to get coached by the best defensive back there is. He was a four-star recruit out of the class of 2021, so he still should have a ton of potential remaining in college.
Kentucky loses a talented offensive lineman to the transfer portal: Deondre Buford has decided to transfer after two seasons in Lexington. He appeared in 15 games for Kentucky and started twice last season too.
Buford is a former four-star offensive lineman out of Detroit. He should have a lot of teams interested in him because he can provide a lot of depth to any teams that need help on the offensive line.
Tennessee loses a defensive back to the transfer portal: Cameron Miller has decided to transfer from Tennessee after just one year in Knoxville. He's also a Tennessee native too.
Miller is a former three-star recruit out Memphis, Tennessee. He should have suitors in the portal because of the potential he presents, even though he never saw the field last season for the Volunteers. He'll be looking for playing time as a #1 option in the portal too.
Florida State loses a defensive back to the transfer portal: Travis Jay has entered the transfer portal after three years with the Seminoles. He didn't see the field at all last year, but appeared in 15 total games for Florida State.
In his career at Seminoles, he finished with 43 tackles, 28 solo tackles, three interceptions, four pass breakups, and one forced fumble. He's a former four-star recruit out of Florida and should have a few suitors in the portal that need help in the secondary.
A marquee backup quarterback decides *not* to transfer: We got marquee portal news on Monday morning, as Garrett Nussmeier, LSU's star backup has elected not to transfer and stay at the school.
With Jayden Daniels slated to return as the Tigers' starter for another year there was talk that Nussmeier could decide to look at his options, but instead, he'll stick around for one more season, and will be the projected starter going into 2024.
Nussmeier is a former Top 100 prospect in the class of 2021, who threw for five touchdowns last season.
Sunday, April 30th:
Ohio State loses a highly touted wide receiver to the transfer portal: Kaleb Brown is leaving a very crowded Ohio State receiving corps. He didn't see the field much last year as a freshman. He only caught one pass for five yards the entire season.
He was a four-star recruit coming out of the Chicago area in the 2022 class. He has a ton of potential still and he should have a lot of teams interested in him because of his potential after leaving the best wide receiver room in the country.
Nebraska loses a highly touted running back to the transfer portal: Ajay Allen is transferring from the Cornhuskers after just one season in Lincoln. He played in just four games this year, before suffering an injury and he was still able to redshirt.
He had 33 carries, 190 rushing yards, and two touchdowns last season for Nebraska. He was a four-star recruit in 2022. He should have a lot of schools interested in him just based off his potential and with the amount of teams out there that need a running back.
Purdue loses a wide receiver to the transfer portal: Milton Wright is transferring from the Boilermakers after three seasons in West Lafayette. He didn't play last year because he was ruled academically ineligible, but he was very good in 2021 when he had 732 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.
Wright is a former four-star recruit out of Kentucky and should have a number of suitors available to him in the portal. He's proven he can be a very good receiver and a lot of schools are going to be interested in him because of that.
Former San Diego State offensive lineman commits to the Buckeyes: Josh Simmons has committed to Ohio State after transferring from San Diego State after two years with the Aztecs.
Simmons redshirted his first year with San Diego State, but then started all 13 games last season for the Aztecs. He has three years of eligibility left, and was a four-star recruit out of California. He's a very solid get for the Buckeyes to help fortify their offensive line depth.
Former five-star offensive lineman finds a new home: Brey Walker is a former five-star recruit that committed to Oklahoma, but he rarely saw the field and only started three games across five years at Oklahoma.
He played high school football in Oklahoma, so his time in Norman was seen as a disappointment. Still, this is a big opportunity for Walker to start and potentially show NFL teams he's still worthy of a roster spot in next year's draft.
Auburn loses a wide receiver to the transfer portal again, after he initially withdrew last time: Landen King initially entered the transfer portal during the last period, before withdrawing in November. Now he leaves after spring practice for good.
King was at Auburn for two years, and rarely saw the field. He only had one catch this past season and six the previous year. He was a three-star recruit out of Texas and should have some suitors in the portal because there's always teams that need help in the receiving corps.
A star Group of 5 corner has some of the biggest schools in college football in pursuit: As former UAB cornerback Jaylen Key announced his final six on Sunday.
That final six? An insanely loaded list that includes Alabama, Ohio State, Florida State, Oregon, Ole Miss and North Carolina.
Key has one year of eligibility left after his most productive season of college football in 2022. Last season he had 60 tackles, one sack, two forced fumbles, and three interceptions, earning All-Conference USA honorable mention honors.
Michigan State gets crushing portal news: Michigan State got crushing portal news on Saturday, as both starting quarterback Payton Thorne and top receiver Keon Coleman have decided to transfer.
Thorne has been the Spartans starter for each of the last two seasons, throwing for just under 65 yards and 49 touchdowns in his time at the school. However, he was in a battle with Noah Kim for the starting job this spring and has decided to leave.
As for Coleman, he was one of the few bright spots on a bad offense, making 58 catches for 798 yards and seven touchdowns.
Expect Coleman to be one of the most coveted skill position players available this off-season.
Colorado star tight end hits the portal: Colorado lost what was expected to be a key piece of its 2023 roster, as tight end Seydou Traore has decided to transfer.
Traore was an All-Sun Belt performer at Arkansas State last year, making 50 catches for 655 yards. But after transferring to Colorado in the winter, he is back in the portal this spring.
He was expected to be a major impact player for the Buffaloes next season.
Saturday, April 29th
Former Nebraska quarterback Casey Thompson already has a visit planned: Just a day after entering the transfer portal, former Nebraska quarterback Casey Thompson appears to have a visit planned.
According to On3's Jeffrey Lee, Thompson is expected to visit Auburn this weekend:
Thompson, who began his career at Texas, spent last season at Nebraska, where he was the primary starter in Scott Frost's final season in Lincoln. He tossed for 2,400 yards, 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
A former top-100 recruit leaves Auburn: As edge rusher Dylan Brooks entered the portal on Saturday.
The highest-rated signee in Auburn's 2021 class, Brooks tallied six tackles, a sack, a fumble recovery and a batted pass.
Ranked as the No. 77 player in the class of 2021, he originally signed with Tennessee, before decommitting following the firing of Jeremy Pruitt. He ended up as the highest-ranked player signed by former Auburn head coach Bryan Harsin.
A former Alabama player becomes Colorado's sixth commit in the last week: As on Saturday, former Crimson Tide defensive back Jahquez Robinson committed to the Buffaloes.
A four-star member of the class of 2020, Robinson played in six games for the Tide last season and recorded one tackle for loss, one sack and two tackles total.
He becomes the sixth commitment for the Buffs since the spring game, with all six coming on defense.
Friday, April 28th
Colorado is getting a big-time visit this weekend: Sav'ell Smalls transferred out of Washington and is one of the best edge rushers available in the portal. He's a former five-star recruit and would be a massive get for Colorado.
He didn't see the field a ton while at Washington. He had 32 tackles in three seasons, with 14 of those coming last season. Smalls would be a huge get for Deion Sanders and the Buffaloes if they can land him.
A former UTEP receiver has transferred out of Texas A&M: Tyrin Smith has transferred out of Texas A&M after transferring into the Aggies during the last transfer period. He was at UTEP for two seasons, where he had 1,609 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns.
He was honorable mention for All-Conference-USA honors this past season. He has two years of eligibility left and should have a ton of suitors in the portal because of how good of a receiver he is.
Florida State loses a wide receiver to the transfer portal: Mycah Pittman has decided to transfer once again after leaving Oregon for Florida State, and now he's leaving the Seminoles after one year.
He had 32 catches, 330 receiving yards, and three touchdowns last season in Tallahassee. He'll be sought after in the portal for any team that needs a wide receiver. He was a highly sought after recruit as a four-star out of California too, so the talent is there, and it'll be interesting to see where he lands too.
Oklahoma loses a cornerback to the transfer portal: Damond Harmon has decided to transfer from the Sooners after two seasons in Norman. He played in 18 games across those two years. He had 22 total tackles, with 18 of those coming last season.
Harmon is a former four-star recruit out of Virginia, so he has talent. He'll have suitors in the portal for any team looking for a starting caliber corner back because he was someone that wants a fresh start with a desire for playing time.
Casey Thompson transfers from Nebraska: After transferring from Texas last year, Thompson is transferring once again, but from Nebraska after going through spring practice with new head coach, Matt Rhule.
Thompson is a grad transfer with one year of eligibility left after spending three years in Texas and one in Nebraska. He's a former four-star recruit out of high school and has been very good when he's seen the field. His experience will be big and he should have a lot of schools lining up for his services this year.
Thursday, April 27th
Florida State loses a defensive back to the transfer portal: Omarion Cooper has entered the transfer portal after two years in Tallahassee. He started three games in 2021 and four games in 2022.
He's a former four-star recruit out of Florida, and he still has a lot to give to with three years of eligibility remaining. He'll be a huge pickup for anyone in the portal that needs a starting cornerback next year.
Notre Dame loses a running back to the transfer portal: Logan Diggs was a big factor for Notre Dame last year in the running game and rushed for 822 yards and four touchdowns in the first season under Marcus Freeman.
He was a three-star recruit out of Louisiana and will have three years of eligibility left. He'll be a big boost for anyone that needs a running back for next season, after playing in 12 games for Notre Dame last year.
An underrated wide receiver just entered the portal: Quan Lee has entered the transfer portal after redshirting all of last season. He was committed to Miami before flipping to UCF and is now available again.
Lee is a former four-star recruit out of Florida and figures to be a big name in the portal for anyone that needs a wide receiver. His potential is too much for teams to ignore, so he'll have a lot of teams interested.
Colorado adds a big commit on the defensive line: Amari McNeill has transferred to Colorado after entering the portal out of Tennessee. He'll have three years of eligibility remaining for the Buffaloes.
He struggled to get on the field at Tennessee and only had two total tackles during the two years he was in Knoxville. He still has a ton of potential with his size and athleticism. He's 6-foot-4, and weighs 285 pounds on the line. He came into college as a three-star recruit out of Georgia and offers a lot of potential for a Buffaloes team that needs all the help it can get in the trenches.
Alabama gets a quarterback commit from the portal: Tyler Buchner has committed to Alabama after entering the transfer portal this past week. Buchner has a good prior relationship with new Alabama offensive coordinator, Tommy Rees, so the move makes sense from that perspective.
Buchner is a former four-star recruit out of California two years ago. He has talent, but he barely played last year for the Fighting Irish due to a shoulder injury he suffered early-on that kept him out most of the season. Buchner brings in some help for Alabama at the quarterback position, after no one really stood out for the Tide in their spring game. The Tide now have one of the more intriguing quarterback battles in college football now in seeing who can replace Bryce Young.
Wednesday, April 26th
Colorado loses one player, but gains two: Chazz Wallace has committed to Colorado to shore their defensive line after transferring from Old Dominion. At Old Dominion, he appeared in 23 games where he had 45 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, and 2.5 sacks. Wallace brings in some good depth out of Maryland as a three-star recruit for Coach Prime.
Brendan Gant was another player Deion and his staff brought in today at linebacker. He was at Florida State the last four seasons, and had 112 total tackles, 69 solo tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, one sack, one interception, two pass deflections, one fumble recovery, and one forced fumble. Gant was a former four-star linebacker out of Florida and should be a huge pickup for Colorado and Deion Sanders.
Taylor Upshaw was an edge rusher that initially followed Deion Sanders to Colorado in January from Michigan, but now he's back in the portal with a year of eligibility left. He was a productive rusher off the edge and will provide any defensive line that wants him with some solid experience.
Former Tar Heel finally gets a new home: Storm Duck has finally found a home from the transfer portal after being at North Carolina for three years. He was huge as a freshman, but struggled to find the field at North Carolina until this past season due to injuries.
This season, he started all 12 games. He had three interceptions, nine pass breakups, and a forced fumble on the year. He initially transferred to Penn State, was only there for the spring and then transferred to Louisville. He's a massive get for the Cardinals and should start immediately.
Colorado lands a big pass rusher out of the transfer portal: Derrick McLendon has committed to the Colorado Buffaloes after transferring from Florida State where he was for four years before entering the portal.
He entered the portal after having his best season yet for the Seminoles. He had 60 total tackles, 29 solo tackles, 12 tackles for loss, seven sacks, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. He has one more year of eligibility and was a former three-star recruit out of Georgia. Colorado brings him over for some much-needed help in the trenches.
Notre Dame transfer quarterback visiting Alabama: Tyler Buchner is visiting with Alabama today after entering the transfer portal earlier in the week.
Buchner has a prior relationship with Tommy Rees, so this would work from that standpoint, but the question remains on if Buchner is "Alabama good" or not. This is still an intriguing recruiting option for other teams that need a quarterback too.
Colorado loses an offensive lineman that initially followed Deion to Boulder: Yousef Mugharbil transferred to Colorado in the first transfer period, and is now leaving after going through spring practice with the Buffaloes.
Mugharbil hasn't had much of a career in college yet. He redshirted in 2021 and didn't see any game action last season. Mugharbil is a former four-star recruit out of North Carolina, who should still have suitors lining up for offensive line help in some fashion.
Colorado set to host two Houston transfer offensive linemen: Cam'Ron Johnson and Trevonte Sylvester are set to visit Colorado this weekend after transferring from Houston.
Johnson was a first-team All-AAC selection last season, while Sylvester was Houston's backup left tackle. Johnson is visiting Colorado after also visiting Missouri and USC. Colorado is definitely a factor here, especially with USC getting a commitment from Pregnon already.
USC gets another big-time transfer commit in the trenches: Wyoming transfer inside offensive lineman, Emmanuel Pregnon, has committed to USC. He was one of the hottest commodities in the portal when he entered with upwards of 20 offers.
He started 11 games for Wyoming last season and had a blocking grade of 73.9, according to Pro Football Focus. With three years left of eligibility, Pregnon should be a big factor on the Trojans' offensive line for awhile.
Nebraska loses a productive defensive lineman to the portal: Stephon Wynn has entered the transfer portal after spending just one year in Lincoln after transferring from Alabama.
He has one year of eligibility left after he had 22 tackles last year. He came out of IMG Academy in Florida as a four-star recruit, and is sure to have a lot of schools coming after him in the portal for a big presence on the line and someone to provide experience on defense too.
Star Group of 5 defensive lineman already picking up Power 5 offers: On Tuesday we told you about James Madison star Isaac Ukwu entering the portal, and in his first day, he has already received a number of Power 5 offers.
Among the schools to reach out and offer include Auburn, Colorado, Ole Miss, West Virginia, as well as South Florida and others.
Ukwu was a star for the Dukes last year with 10.5 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks, with six QB hurries and a forced fumble.
A former four-star offensive lineman is in the portal: A former four star offensive lineman is now in the portal, as Ohio State's Ben Christman has decided to transfer.
Christman was ranked the No. 121 player in the class of 2021, redshirting his first season on campus, before appearing in one game this past year. However, he logged the third most snaps of any player in Ohio State's spring game, and should receive plenty of interest now that he's transferring.
Tuesday, April 25th
Houston loses a huge running back to the portal, and Colorado's lurking: Houston running back, Alton McCaskill, the 2021 AAC Rookie of the Year, has decided to transfer from the Cougars, according to Bruce Feldman of the Athletic. He also missed last season due to a torn ACL, and is primed to come back strong.
The immediate frontrunner for McCaskill is Colorado under Deion Sanders. McCaskill is a former four-star recruit out of Texas and would be a huge get for Coach Sanders if they can land him. McCaskill will have a lot of suitors available in the portal outside of Colorado too.
Colorado loses a Jackson State transfer to the portal: Tayvion Beasley is transferring from Colorado after following Deion Sanders from Jackson State in December. He's another Colorado player that's apart of the mass exodus happening, but the Jackson State factor is what's different.
Beasley saw time last year as a freshman at Jackson State and he was able to grab one interception. After following Sanders out west, Beasley is now back in the portal and should have plenty of schools interested in him. He's a former three-star recruit out of California, so look for him to potentially stay on the west coast.
Miami is hosting two high-profile transfers today: Xzavier Henderson and Jaden Davis are visiting the Hurricanes today in a big visit for both players.
Xzavier Henderson was a standout wide receiver at Florida the last three seasons before entering the transfer portal. Last year, he had 38 catches, 410 receiving yards, and two touchdowns.
Jaden Davis decided to leave the Sooners after four seasons in Norman. He had 104 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, an interception, and 11 pass breakups.
Both Davis and Henderson would be massive gets for Miami if Mario Cristobal can pull it off, especially after the season the Hurricanes had last year.
Ohio State loses a wide receiver to the transfer portal: Caleb Burton is transferring from Ohio State after not seeing the field much last year due to Ohio State's crowded wide receiver room.
He was a highly touted four-star recruit out of Texas, who still has a ton of potential with four more years of eligibility. He should have a bunch suitors for him because of his potential and he'll be eager to join a team that offers him time as a starting wide receiver.
Purdue loses a quarterback to the transfer portal: Brady Allen has entered the transfer portal after coming to Purdue as a highly touted recruit from Indiana. He was also a four-star quarterback out of high school.
He appeared in just one game as a Boilermaker last season, and he also initially entered the portal in December, before withdrawing. Now that he's in the portal, he'll have no shortage of suitors for his services.
Purdue adds a former four-star defensive tackle: Purdue added a former four-star defensive tackle, as Jeffrey M'ba, who spent last season at Auburn, has committed to the Boilermakers.
M'ba arrived on the Plains as one of the top ranked junior college players in the country, finishing his one season there with four tackles and a sack.
Still, he's a high-upside player who had offers from Miami, Tennessee, Arizona State, Colorado and others coming out of JUCO.
TCU is expected to land transfer quarterback: TCU is expected to land a veteran quarterback, as 247 Sports' Chris Hummer has put in a "crystal ball" for the Horned Frogs to pick up a commitment from Oregon State's Chance Nolan.
Nolan has actually been in the portal since the winter period, picking up interest from a number of schools. He began last season as the Beavers starter, finishing with seven touchdowns and just under 1,000 yards passing.
He had 15 career starts during his time in Corvallis.
Veteran Florida State defensive lineman will transfer: A veteran Florida State defensive lineman has decided to transfer, as Joshua Farmer announced his decision to leave the school on Tuesday morning.
Farmer played in 14 games for the Seminoles over the past two seasons. During that time, he has 16 total tackles, six tackles for a loss, and two sacks.
Coming out of high school, Farmer chose the Seminoles over offers from Auburn, Mississippi State and UCLA, among many other Power 5 opportunities.
Notre Dame starting quarterback Tyler Buchner is in the transfer portal: We got some big portal news on Tuesday morning, as Tyler Buchner, who began last season as Notre Dame's starting quarterback, is expected to transfer.
The news was first reported by ESPN's Pete Thamel.
Buchner started the first two games for Notre Dame last season before being knocked out with a shoulder injury, only to finish the year by throwing for 273 yards and three touchdowns in a bowl game win over South Carolina.
Alabama appears to be an obvious landing spot for Buchner, where his former offensive coordinator Tommy Rees now resides. Buchner has three years of eligibility remaining.
A highly-touted wide receiver has decided to leave Nebraska: As Victor Jones Jr. has decided to leave Lincoln.
Jones Jr. came to Nebraska as a highly-coveted prospect in the 2022 recruiting class, but did not see the field last fall for Nebraska.
He chose the Cornhuskers over offers from Arkansas, Kentucky, Cincinnati and others.
A star Group of 5 defensive lineman hits the portal: A star Group of 5 defensive lineman has entered the transfer portal, as James Madison's Isaac Ukwu has decided to leave the school.
Ukwu was a star for the Dukes last year with 10.5 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks, with six QB hurries and a forced fumble.
Expect Ukwu to be one of the most coveted defensive line prospects available this off-season.
Monday, April 24th
A final tally of 18 players enter the transfer portal from Colorado: When all was said and done, a total of 18 players hit the portal from Colorado on Monday. The group included the leading rusher on last year's team Deion Smith and the team's top two receivers from a season ago, Jordyn Tyson and Montana Lemonious-Craig.
Incredibly, since Coach Prime took over at Colorado, a staggering 41 players have hit the portal, with 31 coming since April 15th.
Texas transfer commits to Oklahoma: Brenen Thompson has committed to play for Oklahoma after transferring from their bitter rival, Texas. He was widely viewed as one of the best players in the portal available.
Thompson has three years of eligibility left and stands at 5-foot-10 and 168 pounds and can play in the slot and out wide as a versatile receiver. It's also a massive sign that Brent Venables is making noise for Oklahoma and that Sooner fans should be happy with what he's doing so far.
Michigan loses another linebacker to the transfer portal: Nikhai Hill-Green has decided to transfer out of Ann Arbor. He didn't really see the field last year, but he started six games for Michigan in 2021 as a freshman.
He had 50 total tackles and one pass deflection in his time at Michigan. He's a former four-star recruit and with two years of eligibility left should have many suitors in the transfer portal from teams that need help at linebacker.
Another quarterback has hit the portal: Grant Gunnell has entered the transfer portal once again after starting his career at Arizona, then Memphis, and North Texas before ending up back in the portal as a grad transfer.
Gunnell had a ton of potential coming out of high school, but hopping around schools hasn't helped him. Still, a school will take a chance on him for one more season at the college level.
Notre Dame loses a promising linebacker to the transfer portal: Prince Kollie has decided to transfer from Notre Dame. He'll have two years of eligibility left after spending the last two in South Bend.
Playing time was an issue for Kollie to find, even as a former five-star recruit out of high school. He logged 136 snaps on defense in his two years, but it was a struggle to be consistent. Kollie's going to have a number of schools lining up to give him the playing time he wants.
Three more Colorado Buffaloes have entered the transfer portal: Linebacker Devin Grant has decided to transfer after three years in Boulder. Last season, Grant appeared in 12 games, and had 14 tackles. He was a three-star recruit out of Texas and should find some success somewhere else.
Oakie Salave'a and Aubrey Smith are also both transferring out Boulder. Salave'a and Smith are both former three-star recruits out of high school and after one season with the Buffaloes each is deciding to move on and find a place to better utilize their talents. Both didn't see the field last year, so wherever they go, playing time is big.
Two Wolverines have entered the transfer portal: Wide Receiver, AJ Henning, has entered the transfer portal and will have two more years of eligibility. In Michigan, Henning was used all over the place, as a wide receiver, a running back, and in the kick and punt return game. He appeared in 33 games in Ann Arbor. He also had 25 career receptions for 198 yards and 15 carries for 186 yards and two touchdowns. He's a versatile player that any team in the portal is going to be lucky to grab.
Defensive back, RJ Moten, has entered the transfer portal. He appeared in all 14 games for the Wolverines in each of the last two seasons. He started in five games in 2021 and 10 games in 2022 at safety. Last season, he had 31 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, one interception, two pass breakups, and two quarterback hurries. He's a former four-star recruit out of New Jersey and will have a ton of schools lining up for his services out of the portal.
Colorado loses four more players to the transfer portal after the spring game: Wide receiver Chase Sowell has decided to transfer after the spring game. In his freshman year last year, he saw action three games, and started one against UCLA. He had two receptions for 23 yards on the season and in one game against TCU. The sophomore three-star receiver should have a few suitors in the portal.
Linebacker Shakaun Bowser is another Buffalo that went into the portal after the spring game. He's a former three-star recruit out of Arizona. In his one year in Boulder, he didn't see the field and will be looking for a way to contribute more with his time in the portal.
Defensive back, Tyrin Taylor, has entered the portal after the spring game too. He was solid in his first year in Boulder last year where he appeared in 11 games and had 26 tackles and an interception. He's a former three-star recruit out of North Carolina and has a chance to contribute for a team right away.
Finally, wide receiver Jordyn Tyson, entered the portal after a very productive freshman season. He played in nine games, where he had 22 receptions, 470 receiving yards, and five touchdowns on the year. He had a breakout game against ASU where he had five catches for 115 yards, a touchdown, and 131 punt return yards, with an 88-yard punt return touchdown too. The three-star prospect out of Texas should have some suitors in the portal for him to contribute right away.

Colorado's biggest impact receiver from the spring game is in the portal: Montana Lemonious-Craig has decided to enter the transfer portal just one day after being the best receiver on the field in Colorado's spring game.
He had 154 receiving yards and 1 touchdown in the game. He was in Boulder the last three seasons. He also played in 23 games during his time and had 497 receiving yards and five touchdowns during his career in Boulder. He has a chance to be an impact receiver wherever he winds up now.
Bear Alexander has committed to USC: Bear Alexander has committed to play for Lincoln Riley and the Trojans this year. Alexander was widely seen as the top available player in the portal, so this is a huge pickup for the Trojans.
As a true freshman, he played in 12 games for Georgia and finished with nine tackles, two sacks, and 13 QB hurries. He even saw time in the national championship game where he had a sack and two tackles for loss.
Alexander figures to start immediately for the Trojans in a big position of need for them along the defensive line. The defense was an issue all year last year and this is a major step for the Trojans to take to get better on that side of the ball.
Tre'Quon Fegans being targeted by a handful of schools: Fegans transferred from Alabama after one year with the Crimson Tide. He didn't get much playing time in a crowded DB room, but he was still a four-star recruit out of Alabama.
Fegans has since posted on Twitter that he's heard from 10 schools in the portal. He's heard from UCF, Ohio State, USC, Penn State, Arizona, Georgia Tech, UAB, Troy, Miami (FL), and FAU. He's going to be a big-time get for whoever can land him.
Big TCU transfer sets up a visit with Auburn next weekend: Former five-star recruit, Jordan Hudson, has set up a visit with Hugh Freeze and Auburn for April 28-30. This is a huge visit for an Auburn program that is getting revitalized on the recruitment trail under Freeze.
Jordan Hudson was a big-time recruit that TCU grabbed, so he was going to have schools lining up to get him to join their team. This would be huge in general, so keep an eye out for how well this visit goes next weekend.

Former USC offensive lineman is headed to the SEC: A former USC offensive lineman is headed to the SEC, where on Saturday, former Trojan offensive tackle Courtland Ford committed to Kentucky.
The news was first reported by Kentucky Sports Radio's Matt Jones.
Ford was a multi-year starter for the Trojans, beginning at guard in 2020 before moving to tackle in 2021. However, the combination of a coaching change to Lincoln Riley with preseason injury led to Ford getting lost on the depth chart last year. More injuries in the spring led Ford to hit the portal this spring and get a fresh start.
Now Ford will head to Lexington, where he is expected to compete for the starting right tackle spot for the Wildcats.
Texas A&M gets some good portal on Saturday: As just days after announcing he would leave the program, cornerback Bobby Taylor has informed the staff that he will return.
The news was first reported by On3's Matt Zenitz.
Taylor was a four-star recruit in A&M's historic 2022 recruiting class, but did not see the field last season. After announcing that he was leaving the school he posted on Instagram saying "Don't think I wanted to leave" but the issue appears to be resolved by Jimbo Fisher and his staff.
Taylor has four years of eligibility remaining.

Henderson led the Gators with 38 catches a season ago to go along with 410 yards and two touchdowns.

Storm Duck goes back into the Portal: Storm Duck is back in the portal after going into the portal from North Carolina to Penn State in the first opening, but after spring practice has left the Nittany Lions.
He was a good defensive back at North Carolina and this season he appeared in 12 games. He had 46 tackles, three interceptions, and one forced fumble last season. He has talent, but it will be interesting to see who is interested in Duck now that he's left twice in two transfer windows.
Florida loses an edge rusher to the portal: Antwaun-Powell Ryland has decided to transfer from Florida after three seasons in Gainesville. He's a former four-star recruit from the 2020 recruiting class.
His best year was last year when he had three sacks, 29 total tackles, and three forced fumbles for 2022. He'll have a lot of options available to him in the portal because he can be a big contributor on the defensive line if needed.
Notre Dame loses a wide receiver to the transfer portal: Lorenzo Styles Jr. has left Notre Dame after two seasons in South Bend. He caught 54 passes for 684 receiving yards, and two touchdowns in his time there.
He was a four-star recruit out of Ohio and still has a lot of talent to lend to a program, especially with the bloodline of his dad being an NFL player too. He should be a contributor wherever he ends up now.

Former Jackson State Receiver finds a new home: One of the best wide receivers for Jackson State last year, Shane Hooks, has decided to transfer to Ole Miss, instead of following his coach to Colorado.
Hooks lead the Tigers last year in catches at 64, receiving yards at 748, and touchdowns at 10. He was a little-known recruit out of Orlando as a three-star in 2018 and now has a chance to make an impact for a big Power 5 school at Ole Miss. Hooks should have success in a Lane Kiffin-coached offense at Ole Miss.
Ole Miss loses a true freshman defensive back to the portal: Braxton Myers was an early-enrollee for Ole Miss and joined the Rebels as a former four-star recruit in high school out of this class. He's already decided to transfer after spring practice.
He committed to USC originally before decommitting and signing with Ole Miss in December. This is a big deal because Myers was barely on campus at Ole Miss, before ultimately deciding to leave. He still has raw talent, so someone will pick him up but still the timing feels off.
Arizona adds some much needed help on the defensive line: Sio Nofoagatoto'a has committed to Arizona after transferring from Indiana. He visited this past weekend for Arizona's spring game and it made an impression.
The 6'3" 315-pound lineman was deciding between Arizona and Oregon State, but he never visited Oregon State after the impression Arizona made on him. Last season, he had 18 tackles and 2.5 for a loss. He played in 41 games in four seasons and has a total of 52 tackles during his time at Indiana.
He's exactly the type of big body that Arizona needs to have on a defensive line that was in desperate need of some sort of depth after the way it got man-handled last year.
Clemson loses a defensive back to the transfer portal: Malcolm Greene has decided to transfer from Clemson after three seasons with the Tigers, mainly as a back-up defensive back. He did start in five different games during his time there too. He had 36 tackles and two interceptions in his time at Clemson.
Greene was a four-star defensive back out of Virginia when he committed to the Clemson Tigers out of high school. He'll be in demand because there will be teams that need help in the defensive backfield regardless.
North Carolina loses a linebacker to the transfer portal: Gabe Stephens has decided to leave the Tar Heels after two seasons. He redshirted in 2021 and then didn't record any statistics this past season.
Stephens has a lot of athleticism still to offer as a linebacker. He was a four-star athlete coming out of high school in North Carolina, so he's leaving home to try and find some more playing time elsewhere. he should find it because plenty of schools need help in their linebacking corps.
A big quarterback has decided to transfer from Cincinnati: Ben Bryant, the starter for Cincinnati last year, has decided to transfer one more time after transferring initially from Cincinnati to Eastern Michigan before coming back.
Bryant comes into the 2023 season as a 6th-year senior and will have no problem being able to play wherever he ends up right away because he's a grad transfer. He was a four-star quarterback coming out of high school in 2018 and might need to take a step down in order to find a starting role. He can be a quality player and showed that last year where he had 2,732 passing yards and 21 passing touchdowns for the Bearcats.
A marquee player has decided *not* to enter the transfer portal: A player that many were hoping to see in the portal is instead expected to stay, as DawgsHQ is reporting that Georgia back-up Brock Vandagriff will not transfer.
With Carson Beck leading the Dawgs quarterback race out of spring camp it was anticipated that Vandagriff could transfer, a process which would've made him one of the most high-profile signal-callers to enter the portal this cycle. Instead, he'll stay for fall camp and compete for the starting job.
He had a solid showing in Georgia's spring game, completing 13 of 25 passes for 175 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the game. Beck went 15 for 22 for 231 yards and one touchdown.
