The 2022 college football regular season is done, but now, the crazy part begins: Yes, it's transfer portal season!


That's right, it's portal season, and as we all know, the portal is now a crucial part of team-building in college football. Everyone from Caleb Williams to Quinn Ewers to Travis Dye and more arrived at new schools via the portal last off-season, and are playing huge dividends this year.


Which is why, with portal season starting up again, we're ramping back up our transfer portal tracker

Thursday, January 19th


Missouri adds former high-profile quarterback: Missouri made a splash in the portal on Thursday, adding former high four-star quarterback Jake Garcia, a transfer from Miami.


Garcia was once a high-four star, Top 50 prospect nationally, who chose the Hurricanes after previously being committed to USC. He also had offers from Texas, Florida State and others.


This season he threw for 803 yards and five touchdowns in a back-up role to Tyler Van Dyke, but will now head elsewhere.


Spencer Sanders makes a surprising portal decision: Just one day after former five-star quarterback Walker Howard committed to Ole Miss, the Rebels added yet another high-profile quarterback, as former Oklahoma State starter Spencer Sanders committed to the Rebels.


Sanders started parts of each of the last four seasons for Oklahoma State.


Sanders' best season came in 2021 when he completed 62 percent of his passes for 20 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, and he has proven to be a dual-threat guy as well, rushing for over 600 yards in two season as the Oklahoma State signal-caller.


He will now be in a high-profile quarterback battle with both Howard and incumbent starter Jaxon Dart.


Alabama adds a former Georgia Bulldog: Alabama added to its linebacking corps on Thursday, when former Georgia Bulldog Trezmen Marshall announced his transfer to Tuscaloosa.


Marshall served as a rotational linebacker for Georgia, subbing in for Jamon Dumas-Johnson and Smael Mondon. Marshall was also a key special teamer for Georgia. He is from Homerville, Ga., and played for Clinch County High School.


Marshall was a rotational linebacker for the Bulldogs this season, with 19 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss and an interception in the 2022 season for Georgia in 14 games played.


Wednesday, January 18th


Georgia receiver is now in the portal: AD Mitchell, a highly-coveted wide receiver who came on late during Georgia's title run this season has announced he'll transfer.


The 6'4 Mitchell was expected to be the Dawgs' top wide receiver in 2022, before an ankle injury slowed him. He finished the season with nine receptions for 134 yards and 3 touchdowns in six games this season.


His best game came, ironically, in maybe Georgia's biggest, when he had three catches and a touchdown score against Ohio State in the College Football Playoff.


Former four-star LSU offensive lineman is in the transfer portal: Kardell Thomas, a former four-star offensive lineman in the class of 2019, plans to transfer from LSU. The news was first reported by Billy Embody of the Bengal Tiger.


Thomas is originally from Baton Rouge, where he was a Top 100 recruit in the 2019 recruiting cycle. He made two starts over four years with the Tigers. He appeared in four games this season.


Former five-star QB Walker Howard makes surprising decision: Walker Howard, a QB rated by some as a five-star in the 2022 class, who spent last season at LSU, made a surprising transfer decision: He committed to the Tigers' SEC West rivals Ole Miss.


The move is a bit surprising considering that the Rebels are returning entrenched starter Jaxson Dart under center.


Despite it, Howard will now enroll at Ole Miss, where he'll compete with Dart for the starting job.

Howard played in just two games this past season behind starter Jayden Daniels and backup Garrett Nussmeier.


Tuesday, January 17th


Marquee Colorado Buffalo will transfer: Coach Prime, Deion Sanders, lost a big name off his first Colorado roster, as former starting quarterback JT Shrout has elected to transfer.


Shrout actually transferred to Colorado from Tennessee, where he started a handful of games of games for the Vols. After arriving in Boulder he played significant snaps for one of the sport's worst teams, throwing for seven touchdowns and eight interceptions this season.


With Shedeur Sanders entrenched at quarterback for the Buffaloes after the arrival of "Coach Prime" Shrout will now look for a new home. He has two years of eligibility left.



Former USC wide receiver makes surprising decision: Former USC wide receiver Kyle Ford made a surprising transfer decision, as on Tuesday he committed to - UCLA.


That's right, Ford will head to the Trojans' biggest rival, after a season in which he caught 20 passes for two touchdowns. It included a

six catch, 114-yard game against Arizona.


Ford is a former four-star, who was once ranked one of the Top 100 players in the class of 2019.


A former elite quarterback recruit is now in the portal: A big-time quarterback name is now in the portal, as Jake Garcia, who played the last two years at Miami has elected to transfer.


Garcia was once a high-four star, Top 50 prospect nationally, who chose the Hurricanes after previously being committed to USC. He also had offers from Texas, Florida State and others.


This season he threw for 803 yards and five touchdowns in a back-up role to Tyler Van Dyke, but will now head elsewhere.


Former Alabama offensive lineman is headed to a fellow SEC East school: Damieon George, an offensive lineman who spent the last three seasons at Alabama has found a new college home - on Monday he committed to Florida.


George will have two years of eligibility remaining for the Gators. George appeared in two games for the Tide in 2022, playing against Utah State and Texas. In 2021, he played in 12 games and made 3 starts late in the year.


This is a big pick-up for a Florida program that simply needs more bodies, after a disappointing 6-7 season overall.


Sunday, January 15th


Former four-star quarterback commits to Big Ten school: Former four-star quarterback Tayven Jackson, who spent one season at Tennessee has found a new college home: He has transferred to Indiana.


The freshman is a formerly highly-touted QB, but one who saw minimal role with the Vols last year, throwing just seven passes.


Davis is the younger brother of Indiana basketball star Trayce Jackson-Davis.


Alabama wide receiver Tyler Harrell is in the portal: Tyler Harrell, a highly-regarded receiver who transferred in from Louisville to Alabama a season ago, has decided to enter the portal after just one season in Tuscaloosa.


Harrell has a sixth season of eligibility available for 2023 after transferring last year to Alabama from Louisville, where he played from 2018-21. Harrell's 2021 season was his best, where he averaged 29.1 yards and scored six touchdowns for the Cardinals, before electing to transfer.


However, his role at Alabama was minimal after an early-season foot injury slowed him.


Friday, January 13th


Tennessee loses a promising quarterback to the portal: Former four-star freshman Tayven Jackson has decided to transfer out of Tennessee after just one season. Jackson wasn't going to start next season because Joe Milton still has one season of eligibility left.


Early reports say this might seem to be because Jackson wants to be closer to home in Indiana. He's initially from Indiana and 247Sports has already put in a crystal ball pick for him to end up with the Hoosiers. That would be a big get for Tom Allen if it's true.


The defending champions just lost three players to the portal: Freshman cornerback Jaheim Singletary, freshman offensive lineman Jacob Hood, and junior linebacker Trezmen Marshall have decided to all leave the Bulldogs and look elsewhere.


Jaheim Singletary is transferring out after not finding much playing time in a position room that might be Georgia's biggest strength in the cornerbacks. He's a former five-star recruit out of Jacksonville, Florida, so he'll have no shortage of teams vying for his services.


Jacob Hood transferring out is also another fact of not finding much playing time along a crowded position group along the offensive line. He's a four-star freshman out of Nashville, Tennessee. He's going to have programs lining up for his services as well.


Junior linebacker Trezmen Marshall leaving Georgia is yet another case where there wasn't much playing time available due to the amount of talent the linebacking corps had for Georgia. This one is more of a surprise because he's a Georgia kid, but he just hasn't been able to beat anyone out in a stacked linebacking room.


Thursday, January 12th


Auburn picks up yet another elite player in the trenches: Auburn head coach Hugh Freeze continued his assault on the transfer portal on Thursday, adding former five-star defensive lineman Justin Rogers, who spent the last three seasons at Kentucky.


The 6-3, 332-pound Rogers is coming off a season in which he started 12 games for the Wildcats, with 35 tackles and nine solo stops. In 2021, he had 2.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks.


It's clear that Hugh Freeze has prioritized line play in the portal, adding several offensive and defensive linemen, including most recently, former East Carolina offensive tackle Avery Jones.


Rogers is Auburn's 12th addition from the portal.


Wednesday, January 11th


Elite quarterback prospect will transfer: LSU head coach Brian Kelly got some surprising news on Monday, when it was reported by TigerBait.com that elite former quarterback prospect Walker Howard will transfer.


Howard is a former high-four star recruit from Louisiana, who initially committed to Ed Orgeron and stuck with the Tigers even after Brian Kelly arrived. He was ranked the No. 4 quarterback in the 2022 class but threw for just four total passes this year.


With both Jayden Daniels and back-up Garrett Nussmeier expected back, Howard will now leave. ESPN has reported that TCU and Florida could be early front-runners for his services.


Oregon makes yet another major portal addition: Oregon's dominance of the transfer portal this off-season has continued, as former South Carolina edge rusher Jordan Burch will transfer to Eugene.


A once-time former five-star prospect and one of the highest-rated recruits to ever commit to South Carolina, Burch made 60 tackles, including 7.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks, for the Gamecocks as a junior in 2022.


He joins a loaded portal haul for Oregon this off-season that includes former Alabama wide receiver Traeshon Holden, former Alabama cornerback Khyree Jackson and former All-Mountain West safety Evan Williams.


Former elite Texas A&M defensive lineman has found a transfer home: Anthony Lucas, a former Top 100 recruit who was part of Texas A&M's famed 2022 recruiting class has announced his transfer destination: He will head to USC.


Lucas is a former Top 60 recruit nationally from Arizona, who chose the Aggies last winter over offers from Alabama, Miami and others.


He appeared in seven games for the Aggies with 10 tackles and one TFL. He will be highly-coveted in the portal.


Coach Prime and Colorado add SEC running back: "Coach Prime" Deion Sanders continues to upgrade the talent in his locker room, as on Wednesday, he added another marquee transfer - former Kentucky running back Kavosiey Smoke.


Smoke had an up-and-down five years with the Wildcats, with his best season actually coming back in 2019 when he rushed for nearly 700 yards and six touchdowns. He added four more a season ago, but was limited to just 58 carries and a single TD score in 2022.


He becomes the latest piece in Sanders' Colorado overhaul, as the Buffaloes have now taken a staggering 22 commitments in the portal.


Baylor adds coveted quarterback: Baylor made a major portal snag on late Tuesday, as former Mississippi State quarterback Sawyer Robertson committed to the school.


Robertson chose the Bears over significant interest from national runner-up TCU.


A four-star prospect in the 2021 class, Robertson was rated as the No. 134 overall prospect in the nation, after putting up 12,095 yards with 146 passing touchdowns in his high school career. However, stuck behind Will Rogers at the college level he never saw meaningful snaps.


Instead, he'll now arrive in Waco, where he's expected to compete with last year's starter Blake Shapen for the job.


Arkansas adds an interesting piece out of the portal: Arkansas has added an interesting piece out of the portal, as highly-touted Division II transfer Isaac TeSlaa has committed to the Hogs.


While it's not often you see DII guys jump to the SEC, TeeSla received quite a bit of buzz after entering the portal, receiving offers from

Oklahoma State, Iowa, Miami (FL), Texas A&M, Ole Miss and more.


The 6-foot-4, 210-pound receiver recorded 68 receptions for 1,325 yards and 13 touchdowns in 11 games in 2022.


Tuesday, January 10th


Oklahoma has picked up a second marquee commitment on Tuesday: Just hours after picking up the commitment of defensive lineman Davon Sears, Brent Venables and his staff did it again, adding a commitment from former Michigan wide receiver Andrel Anthony.


Anthony had just seven receptions during the 2022 season, but had 12 catches in 2021, including a six-catch, 155 yard performance against Michigan State.


Former five-star quarterback is now in the transfer portal: Former five-star quarterback Sam Huard, has decided to transfer from Washington.


Huard completed 24 of 44 passes for 265 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions in five career games. He made his lone start in the 2021 Apple Cup, going 17 for 31 for 190 yards with one touchdown and four picks in a 40-13 loss inside Husky Stadium.


However, with Michael Penix returning for another season, Huard is now in the portal.


Oklahoma picks up yet another major d-line prospect: Brent Venables continues to stockpile d-line talent, as former Texas State star lineman Davon Sears picked the Sooners on Tuesday, choosing them over fellow finalists Penn State and Tennessee.


The 6'2, 290 lb. lineman finished with 3.5 tackles for loss and one sack this season and now joins a defensive front group which includes former Wake Forest star defensive lineman Rondell Bothroyd and former Indiana edge rusher Dasan McCollough.


Auburn adds to its impressive offensive line haul: Auburn has added yet another player to its impressive offensive line haul, as former East Carolina center Avery Jones has flipped a commitment from Illinois to the Tigers.


Jones a former four-star recruit and one-time North Carolina commit, who becomes the eighth different offensive line addition for the Tigers this off-season.



Monday, January 9th


Dont'e Thornton finds a new home: Thornton was a four-star recruit out of Baltimore, but barely saw the field at Oregon and decided to transfer out to Tennessee.


A big factor is that Thornton signed on to Oregon when Mario Cristobal was still in Eugene, and now probably doesn't fit in well with what Dan Lanning wants to do there.


He should fit in nicely at Tennessee thanks to an offense that helps make their wide receivers shine like with Jalin Hyatt, Cedric Tillman, and Bru McCoy. Josh Heupel got a big target that has a ton of potential in Knoxville.


Sunday, January 8th


One of Luke Fickell's best Cincinnati players has followed him to Wisconsin: New Wisconsin coach Luke Fickell has added a familiar face, as former All-AAC offensive lineman Jake Renfro has announced that he'll follow Fickell to Wisconsin.


Renfro made 19 starts the last two seasons, including significant snaps as a true freshman on the Bearcats' 2021 playoff team. This year he earned All-AAC first team honors for one of the best offensive lines in college football.


Oklahoma adds another piece to loaded portal class: Oklahoma continues to clean up in the portal, as on Sunday, they were able to add a key defensive line piece - former Wake Forest Demon Deacon Rondell Bothroyd.


Bothroyd spent the previous five seasons with the Demon Deacons having played in 48 career games and finished this year with 30 tackles, eight TFL's and six sacks.


He joins a loaded Oklahoma portal class that includes elite edge rusher Dasan McCollough, formerly of Indiana.


Kentucky adds former five-star d-lineman: Kentucky continued to add to its impressive portal haul, adding former five-star, North Carolina signee Keeshawn Silver.


Silver is a former five-star who had his senior season of high school football cancelled because of Covid, before playing two limited seasons at North Carolina.


Despite it, he brings high upside to the Wildcats defensive line that recently lost its own former five-star, Justin Rogers, who hit the portal last week.


Saturday, January 7


Former Virginia star quarterback announces his transfer choice: Brennan Armstrong, one of college football's best quarterbacks at Virginia two seasons ago before struggling this year, has announced his transfer destination.


Armstrong will head to NC State.


In the 2021 season (Bronco Mendenhall's final at Virginia), the Cavaliers finished second nationally in pass offense, with Armstrong throwing for over 4,400 yards and 31 touchdowns. Unfortunately, those stats didn't translate under new head coach Tony Elliott this year, and now Armstrong will look to reboot his career.


The move to NC State will reunite Armstrong with his former Virginia offensive coordinator Robert Anae, who was recently hired as the new OC at NC State.


USC picked up another major portal addition: Lincoln Riley continues to clean up in the portal, as on Saturday they received a commitment from former South Carolina running back MarShawn Lloyd.


Lloyd was South Carolina's leading rusher this past season, finishing with 573 yards and nine touchdowns on 111 carries for the Gamecocks, but was limited late with injuries.


Lloyd should be in line for plenty of production early, with the Trojans losing star running back Travis Dye to graduation.



Thursday, January 5


Former Michigan wide receiver Andrel Anthony has picked up some MAJOR offers since hitting the portal: It's been a busy day for former Michigan wide receiver Andrel Anthony, who continues to pick up some major offers in the portal.


Since hitting the portal on Thursday morning, Anthony has received offers from the following schools: Penn State, Texas A&M, Notre Dame, Miami, Michigan State, Oklahoma, UCLA, South Carolina and Auburn.


Anthony had just seven receptions during the 2022 season, but had 12 catches in 2021, including a six-catch, 155 yard performance against Michigan State.


Auburn adds another big-time offensive line transfer prospect: Hugh Freeze continues to do work in the transfer portal, as Auburn added former Western Kentucky offensive tackle Gunner Britton on Thursday night.


Britton visited the Plains earlier this week and committed late in the evening, after appearing in 27 of the Hilltoppers’ 28 games the last two seasons, and earning a spot on the All-Conference USA Second Team.


Britton is the second transfer tackle to join the Tigers, as Auburn also received a commitment from former Tulsa starting tackle Dillon Wade.


Sam Hartman officially chooses Notre Dame: In news that isn't all that surprising, but still big for the sport of college football, former Wake Forest quarterback Sam Hartman has committed to Notre Dame.


Hartman has been linked to Notre Dame since hitting the portal, and immediately injects life into the Irish offense. He is actually second all-time in passing in ACC history with over 12,000 yards through the air, including a 2021 season where he threw for over 4,200 yards and 39 touchdowns, leading Wake Forest to the ACC title game. Despite an injury this season that limited him early, he still threw for 38 touchdowns and over 3,800 yards through the air.


Put simply, this is one of the biggest portal additions anywhere, in the off-season.



TCU lands a big transfer running back: Trey Sanders transferred from Alabama to TCU after seeing the field in a very limited capacity the last three seasons. He'll have two years of eligibility left. He was also one of the highest ranked running backs in the transfer portal.


He was a former five-star recruit out of Florida that should see a ton of touches in Fort Worth at TCU. He was the #1 running back recruit in the 2019 class. The system that TCU utilizes is great for running backs and you can see that with the season that Kendre Miller was having this year.


Local Michigan receiver decides to transfer out: Andrel Anthony Jr. has decided to transfer out of Michigan after not seeing much of the field last year, despite being from Michigan. He only saw time in one game and didn't do much in that game.


He came into Michigan just last year so he has a lot eligibility left. He has garnered a lot of interest already with offers from Oklahoma, Miami (FL), Pitt, South Carolina, Cal, Penn State, and Texas A&M.


Huge South Carolina recruit transferring out: Defensive end Jordan Burch has decided to transfer out after coming into South Carolina as five-star and as the second-highest ranked recruit in school history.


His 2022 season was his best when he tallied 56 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, and 3.5 sacks. He also originally signed on to play for Will Muschamp before he got fired.


He was recruited heavily by Dan Lanning to go to Georgia too and there's a lot of speculation that he'll join Lanning now in Oregon.


Star Cal receiver in the portal: J. Michel Sturdivant, a star receiver at Cal who led the team with 65 catches this season, has decided to enter the transfer portal.


In addition to those 65 catches, Sturdivant also had a team-high seven touchdown grabs, doing so on an average of 11 yards per catch.


He was a redshirt freshman a season ago.


Wednesday, January 4


Star Utah running back is in the transfer portal: Micah Bernard, who played the last four years at Utah and was the team's second leading rusher this season has elected to transfer.


Bernard rushed for 500+ yards each of the last two seasons, finishing this year with four touchdowns. It included a 88-yard rushing performance against USC in the Pac-12 title game and he also added 91 yards in the team's season finale against Colorado.


Because of a redshirt year and a Covid waiver, Bernard actually has two years of eligibility remaining.


One of the top running backs in college football is headed to UCLA: UCLA made a major addition via the portal on Wednesday, as Carson Steele, one of the nation's top rushers a season ago, committed to the Bruins.


Steele, who played the last two years at Ball State had a breakout 2022 season, rushing for 1,556 yards and 14 touchdowns for Ball State despite not playing in a bowl game. He cleared the 100-yard plateau nine times in 12 games to finish No. 9 in the nation in yards rushing and tied for 15th in rushing touchdowns.


Steele will now arrive in Los Angeles, where he should help replace the production of star Zach Charbonnet, who is off to the NFL.


A top three has emerged for elite offensive tackle Walter Rouse: Walter Rouse, a four-year starter who elected to leave Stanford following David Shaw's resignation, is beginning to narrow his list of suitors.


Per Josh Edwards of CBS, Rouse will visit Oklahoma, Iowa and Nebraska, with Kentucky also showing interest.


Rouse started 39 games for the Cardinal over the last four seasons.



Maryland adds key play-maker via the portal: Maryland picked up a nice addition in the portal on Wednesday, as former West Virginia wide receiver Kaden Prather committed to the Terps.


Prather, who is originally from Maryland, was a four-star member of the class of 2021, spending two seasons with the Mountaineers. He finished this season with 52 catches for 511 yards and three touchdowns.


A key Oklahoma State wide receiver is now in the portal: Bryson Green, Oklahoma State's second leading receiver this year, has decided to transfer.


A sophomore, Green finished the year with 36 catches for 584 yards, both of which ranked second on the team.


It's been a crushing off-season for the Pokes, who already lost starting quarterback Spencer Sanders and leading rusher Dominic Richardson, among many, to the portal.


A pair of Ohio State Buckeyes hit the transfer portal: A pair of Ohio State Buckeyes has hit the portal, as both defensive end Javonte Jean-Baptiste and cornerback JK Johnson both announced they'd leave the school.

One of Lincoln Riley's first big recruiting wins is now in the transfer portal: One of Lincoln Riley's first big recruiting wins at USC is now in the transfer portal, as former four-star receiver CJ Williams will transfer.


Williams was a highly-touted recruit who had initially committed to Notre Dame out of high school in 2022, but decided to stay close to home after Riley's arrival.


He finished this season with 34 catches, and should be an immediately coveted wide receiver threat.


Ohio State adds instant impact transfer: Ohio State added an instant impact transfer, as former Syracuse safety Ja'Had Carter joined the Buckeyes.


A Freshman All-American in 2020, Carter recorded 138 total tackles with five interceptions, 12 pass deflections, two fumble recoveries (one returned for a 90-yard touchdown) and one forced fumble while making 28 starts in 31 total game appearances over the past three seasons.

Tuesday, January 3

Monday, December 26th


Hudson Card is headed to the Big Ten: We got some big transfer portal news, as former Texas starting quarterback Hudson Card is headed to Purdue.

Saturday, December 24th


DJ Uiagalelei makes his transfer choice: Former Clemson quarterback DJ Uiagalelei has officially made his transfer choice, as he announced on Christmas Eve that he will attend Oregon State.

Harris committed to the Aggies late in the process last winter, one of the final pieces of Texas A&M's historic 2022 recruiting class. And once he got to campus, he immediately found playing time, appearing in five games with three pass break-ups.


Unfortunately, those five games would mark the end of Harris' short career, as he was suspended for the Miami game in late September and was one of three players indefinitely suspended late in the season.


Now he will get a fresh start at one of A&M's top SEC West rivals.
