Thursday, January 18th


Kalen DeBoer gets a new quarterback out of the portal: Washington quarterback Austin Mack has followed Kalen DeBoer from Washington to Alabama after entering the transfer portal. He is a four-star recruit from California that was only in Seattle for one season.


Mack has great size at 6-6 and 226 pounds and should be able to be a massive key for the Crimson Tide and the new offense that DeBoer will bring over with him and Ryan Grubb. Mack has a lot of potential and followed his coach to prove it.


Kadyn Proctor officially enters the transfer portal: Kadyn Proctor is officially in the transfer portal after starting for Alabama along the offensive line this season as a freshman. Proctor was a five-star recruit coming into this last recruiting class and started for the Tide almost immediately.


Proctor is from Iowa and went to high school there and it seems like Iowa is the early leader for his services. Things can change and Kalen DeBoer will surely try and keep him around, but it looks like he's headed back home.


Rice loses a great defender to the transfer portal: De'Braylon Carroll has entered the transfer portal from Rice as a grad transfer. This season, he had 47 total tackles, nine tackles for loss, and 3.5 sacks.


Carroll stayed in-state by going to Rice after being a three-star recruit out of high school. After four productive seasons for the Owls he's on his way to another school for one more year at the college level. Expect him to be in demand to help out any team that needs help on the defensive line.

Washington loses two offensive linemen to the transfer portal: The bleeding keeps coming for the Washington Huskies ever since Kalen DeBoer left to take the Alabama job. Two offensive linemen are the latest to enter the transfer portal in Julius Buelow and Parker Brailsford. Buelow started nine games at both guard spots, while Brailsford was a starter at center.


Buelow was a four-star recruit out of Hawaii, while Brailsford was a three-star recruit out of Arizona. Both players will be highly coveted out of the transfer portal and they add to the massive list of losses the Huskies already have since losing in the National Championship.


All-Pac-12 cornerback appears to be down to two schools: It's not all bad news for Alabama in the portal, as former Washington cornerback Jabbar Muhammad appears to be down to two schools.


Muhammad will visit both Texas and Alabama - and is expected to choose between the two.


The All-Pac 12 corner finished this season with 46 tackles, 15 pass breakups and three interceptions. He is from Texas, so his recruitment likely will come down to heading to his home state school, or playing for his former head coach in Kalen Deboer.


Muhammad has two years remaining, although the assumption is that he will probably only play one more year of college ball before going to the NFL.


A second Alabama superstar is now transferring: We have yet another Alabama superstar entering the transfer portal - as offensive tackle Kadyn Proctor will now leave as well.


Proctor was a five-star member of the class of 2023, ranked as the top ranked offensive tackle in the entire class. He was committed to Iowa for most of his recruitment, before flipping to Alabama at the last minute.


In his one season at Bama, he started every game at right tackle, earning All-SEC Freshman team honors.


Proctor will have three years of eligibility remaining at his next school, with early reports indicating that a return to Iowa is most likely.


Caleb Downs plans to enter the portal: We have huge portal news to start your Wednesday, as Alabama All-American Caleb Downs plans to enter the portal, according to a report from On3.


Downs was an All-American as a true freshman this season, leading Alabama with 107 tackles, to go along with two interceptions.

Tuesday, January 16th


Former 5-star cornerback Dezz Ricks has committed to Alabama's SEC rival: Just days after Dezz Ricks decided to leave Alabama - he has committed to one of Alabama's old-school SEC West rivals.


On Tuesday night, he committed to Texas A&M.


Ricks was a five-star in Alabama's top ranked recruiting class of 2023. He saw two games of action this year, but did not have any tackles.


Ricks will have four years of eligibility remaining.


Former Auburn QB Robby Ashford is staying in the SEC: Former Auburn QB Robby Ashford is staying in the SEC, as on Tuesday he committed to South Carolina.


Ashford was used both as a runner and a passer in his time on the Plains, throwing for over 1,600 yards and rushing for more than 700 during the 2022 season. However, with the arrival of Payton Thorne and Hugh Freeze this season, his reps were limited.


He'll look to start over for a Gamecocks squad which needs help at the quarterback position after the departure of Spencer Rattler. Ashford will have two season of eligibility remaining.


Monday, January 15th


Fran Brown and Syracuse pick up another star in the portal: Fran Brown's recruiting roll continues at Syracuse, as on Monday, former Alabama defensive lineman Isaiah Hastings committed to the Orange.

The 6'4, 290 lb. defensive lineman will have three seasons of eligibility remaining.


A key cog on Washington's offensive line is now in the portal: A key cog on Washington's Joe Moore Award winning offensive line has decided to transfer, as Parker Brailsford will leave Seattle.


An All-Pac 12 second team performer, Brailsford started all 15 games for this year's national runners up.

The first major star from Arizona has decided to enter the portal: Less than a day after head coach Jedd Fisch decided to leave for Washington, his first big star announced he'd be leaving as well.


That player is star running back Jonah Coleman, in news first reported by On3's Hayes Fawcett.


Coleman was the Wildcats leading rusher this season with 871 yards, and five rushing touchdowns.


He will have three years of eligibility remaining.


Saturday, January 13th


Cam Ward has committed to Miami: In a bit of surprise transfer portal news, former Washington State star Cam Ward has announced that he will not enter the draft, and instead enroll at Miami.


Ward spent the last two years at Wazzu after transferring from FCS Incarnate Word. In Pullman, he started 25 games, throwing for more than 6,400 yards and 43 touchdowns. He also had 11 rushing scores.

Ward had previously announced around New Year's that he would enter the draft, but will now do another season of college football instead. He has one year of eligibility remaining.

Ohio State adds the best running back available out of the transfer portal: Quinshon Judkins has committed to play for Ohio State next season after entering the transfer portal from Ole Miss. He has been the focal point of the Rebels offense these last two seasons and finished top three in the SEC in rushing in his first two seasons in Oxford.


He was a three-star recruit out of Alabama in high school, but immediately became the best running back transfer available in the portal. He is a massive pickup for the Buckeyes and should be able to be a difference maker for them right away in the backfield. He is a massive pickup with some uncertainty at the quarterback position.


Georgia lands a former UNLV quarterback out of the transfer portal: Standout UNLV quarterback Jayden Maiava has committed to play for Georgia after leading the Rebels under center this past season. He had 3,085 passing yards, 17 touchdowns, 10 interceptions, on a 63.5% completion percentage.


Maiava was a three-star recruit out of high school from Nevada, but was one of the best transfer quarterbacks available. He comes into Athens to sit behind Carson Beck this upcoming season and then presumably the job would be his after that. Maiava was very good at UNLV, but this is a massive step up for him.


Miami lands an underrated FCS quarterback out of the portal: Reese Poffenbarger has transferred to Miami after starting at quarterback for Albany these last two seasons. He led the entire FCS in passing yards this season at 3,614 passing yards, and he also had 36 touchdowns and 13 interceptions on a 58.6% completion percentage.


He was a three-star recruit out of Maryland, but has become a great player in college after just two seasons. He is an interesting pickup for the Miami Hurricanes and could start right away in Coral Gables.


Saturday, January 6th


Malachi Nelson makes his transfer choice: Former USC quarterback Malachi Nelson has made his transfer choice, committing to Boise State on Saturday night.


Nelson was a five-star quarterback in the high school class of 2023, but saw limited action this past season.


Boise returns 18 starters off last year's Mountain West championship team, a fact that could be appealing to Nelson, according to Thamel. He'll have four years of eligibility remaining at his next school.


Nebraska adds a pair of key playmakers: Just a week after adding the top high school quarterback in America, Matt Rhule has added some nice offensive pieces around five-star QB Dylan Raiola.


The late addition on Saturday was Dante Dowdell, a former four-star running back who spent last season at Oregon. Dowdell had 17 carries for 90 yards and one touchdown this season. He is a former Top 200 recruit according to 247 Sports.


Earlier in the weekend, the Huskers also added former Wyoming and Texas wide receiver Isaiah Neyor. Neyor began his career at Wyoming, where he had a breakout 2021 campaign, making 44 catches for 878 yards and 12 touchdowns. He was a highly-acclaimed transfer at Texas, but lost his entire 2022 season to a knee injury and was limited to one catch in 2023.


Neyor will have one year of eligibility, while Dowdell will have three years of eligibility left.


Texas A&M adds several more marquee names via the portal: Just a few hours after Troy offensive lineman Derrick Graham committed to Texas A&M, the Aggies added a slew of commitments on Saturday night.


The four players were former Florida defensive lineman Scooby Wiliams, Florida defensive back Jaydon Hill, Wisconsin defensive lineman Rodas Johnson and UAB cornerback BJ Mayes.


Williams and Hill are probably the most accomplished of the group, with Williams finishing with 53 tackles, four tackles for loss and a sack, while Hill had 39 tackles, four TFL's and two sacks. Both followed former Florida assistant Jay Bateman to Aggieland.


Johnson meanwhile arrives after having played in 38 games over five seasons with the Badgers and has one year of eligibility left. Mayes played one season at UAB after transferring from the FCS level, and last season had 23 tackles, two interceptions and 10 pass breakups.


Texas A&M adds depth to its o-line: Offensive line was an area of priority for new head coach Mike Elko when he took over, and the Aggies added a nice piece on Saturday, as former Troy offensive lineman Derrick Graham is headed to Aggieland.


Graham started all 14 games this season for the Trojans, and also caught a touchdown pass on a trick play for Troy in their bowl game against Duke (ironically, Elko's former team).


Once he entered the portal he became a priority recruit for several schools, securing offers from Ohio State, Missouri and Pitt among others - but instead will head to College Station.


He is Texas A&M's 12th transfer commitment this off-season.


A surprise member of Alabama's roster hits the portal: A surprise out of Alabama hit the portal, as Crimson Tide running back Roydell Williams has decided to transfer.


Williams had a solid season for the Tide finishing second on the Tide in rushing with 511 yards, to go along with five rushing touchdowns. But with the emergence of freshman Justice Haynes, Williams has decided to continue his career elsewhere.


A Covid senior, Williams has one year of eligibility remaining.


Ohio State adds a key piece on the offensive line: Ohio State added a key piece on the offensive line as former Alabama center Seth McClaughlin has committed to the Buckeyes.

Friday, January 5th


Auburn loses a standout cornerback to the transfer portal: Keionte Scott has decided to transfer after two seasons with Auburn. He has been a great cornerback for the Tigers and has 95 total tackles, one sack, and one interception in two seasons for the Tigers.


He was a four-star recruit out of high school in California. Scott has shown NFL potential at the cornerback position and opted to return to school before deciding to transfer. He is going to have a massive list of teams wanting to grab him out of the transfer portal. He has great size to go with the numbers at 6-foot and 185 pounds. Expect him to be one of the top cornerbacks in the transfer portal.


Former LSU offensive lineman sets up visits: Zalance Heard has started setting up visits after entering the transfer portal after just one season in Baton Rouge. He is set to visit both Oklahoma and Tennessee out of the transfer portal.


Heard was a five-star offensive lineman out of Louisiana and stayed closer to home by attending LSU. He did not see the field much and has decided to transfer after just one season in Baton Rouge. He will be a massive pickup for any team out of the portal, especially with his size at 6-6, 340 pounds. He will be an x-factor wherever he ends up.


Texas loses a defensive back to the transfer portal: Kitan Crawford has decided to transfer from the Longhorns after the CFP semifinal loss. Crawford came on strong in these last two seasons, compared to his first two. He has 49 total tackles over the last two seasons


Crawford was a four-star recruit out of high school in Texas and decided to stay in the state and go to Austin. He should have more than a few schools interested in him out of the transfer portal. His size will get noticed from teams at 5-11 and 201 pounds. Expect him to be a good pickup wherever he ends up.


Texas loses a safety to the transfer portal: Jerrin Thompson has entered the transfer portal after the CFP semifinal loss to Washington. He was a solid safety for the Longhorns for four seasons. He has a total of 176 tackles and five interceptions in his career in Austin.


He was a four-star recruit out of high school from Texas, so he stayed relatively close to home. He has great size for a safety at 6-foot and 190 pounds. Expect a team to pick him up as a leader on defense. He should be a solid pickup for anyone out of the portal.


Quinshon Judkins has officially entered the transfer portal: One of the biggest surprises to enter the transfer portal so far has been Quinshon Judkins. He is a star running back from Ole Miss and was the leading rusher in the SEC the last two seasons in Oxford. This might be a ploy to get more money from Ole Miss, but he is going to have a ton of suitors in the transfer portal.


Judkins was a three-star recruit out of Alabama and has turned into a star in college. Ole Miss has a chance to have a special season next year, so expect them to go all-in on trying to keep Judkins, but they will have competition now from the top programs in the sport.


Former Utah running back finds a new home out of the transfer portal: Ja'Quinden Jackson has committed to Arkansas out of the transfer portal. He was solid for the Utes in three seasons in Salt Lake City and he had 797 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns this season.


He was a four-star recruit at running back out of Texas and has still shown a lot of talent in college. He is an underrated pickup and should be one of the better pickups for Arkansas overall. He should fit in well with their new offense under Bobby Petrino too.


Alabama loses a running back to the transfer portal: Alabama's season is over and the players have started entering the transfer portal. Roydell Williams has entered the transfer portal after being a solid second back for the Crimson Tide this season behind Jase McClellan. Williams had 560 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns this season, but has had trouble cracking the rotation in four seasons in Tuscaloosa.


Williams was a four-star recruit from Alabama, so he stayed close to home for college. Now, he should be one of the top running backs available after being solid for Alabama the last few seasons. His size is also great for a running back at 5-10 and 214 pounds. Look for a handful of teams to be interested in adding him as an underrated running back out of the portal.


Taulia Tagovailoa enters the transfer portal: Taulia Tagovailoa has decided to transfer instead of enter the NFL Draft. He will have to apply for a waiver to get an extra year of eligibility in college. He ended his time at Maryland this year as the Big Ten's all-time leading passer. He has been year-in and year-out one of the best quarterbacks in the country and should have a long list of teams ready to jump at the chance to add him.


Taulia followed his brother Tua to Alabama after graduating from high school in Alabama as a four-star recruit. He then transferred and followed former Alabama offensive coordinator, Mike Locksley to College Park at Maryland. It is expected he will get his waiver approved and once that happens he will be one of the top quarterbacks available in the transfer portal.


Ty Thompson finds a new home out of the transfer portal: Ty Thompson has committed to play at Tulane after transferring from Oregon. He was the main backup at Oregon for the past three seasons and saw some time, but not a lot under center. He had 297 passing yards and four passing touchdowns this past season.


Thompson was a four-star recruit out of Arizona and will be headed to New Orleans to compete for the starting job under new head coach John Sumrall. Thompson has not been able to show much at Oregon, but was a former four-star recruit and has a lot of potential still. His size is good indicator of that at 6-4 and 220 pounds. He has a chance to find success with the Green Wave.


LSU loses a running back to the transfer portal: Logan Diggs has decided to transfer from LSU after just one season in Baton Rouge. He started his career at Notre Dame and was solid for two seasons before following Brian Kelly to LSU. He had 653 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns for the Tigers this season.


Diggs was a three-star recruit out of high school in Louisiana and was going back closer to home at LSU. Something did not work out, so now he will be heading somewhere else. He should have more than a few teams interested in him out of the portal. He has a lot of potential still and should be a solid pickup for a team looking for a running back.


Oregon State loses another defensive player to the transfer portal: Sione Lolohea has decided to transfer out of Corvallis after Jonathan Smith left the Beavers for Michigan State. He has been in Corvallis for four seasons and emerged for the Beavers over the last two seasons. He was named to the second-team All-Pac-12 team with 47 tackles and 8.5 tackles for loss this past season.


He was a three-star recruit out of California and should have teams lining up for his services out of the portal. He's 6-3 and weighs 266 pounds, which should have most teams interested in him too. He is an underrated name on the defensive line out of the portal and could be a quality piece to whatever team wants him.


Texas loses a defensive tackle to the transfer portal: After the CFP semifinal loss, Trill Carter decided to transfer from the Longhorns after he had nine total tackles, one sack, and one forced fumble. He was at Minnesota his previous four seasons and was a solid defender for the Golden Gophers.


Carter was a three-star recruit out of Georgia before heading to Minnesota out of Texas. His size alone is going to get teams interested in him and have teams come knocking. He's 6-2 and 300 weight pounds. He could have an impact in his last season in college.



Wednesday, January 3rd


A leader appears to have emerged for former five-star Malachi Nelson: A leader appears to have emerged for former five-star QB Malachi Nelson, as the USC product will visit Boise State this weekend in news first reported by ESPN's Pete Thamel.

Jefferson was a four-star recruit out of Mississippi out of high school and has evolved into one of the best quarterbacks at the FBS level even when he had a down year this past season there was still shades of his talent. If he ends up at UCF it will be a match made in heaven with Gus Malzahn's offense.

Texas lands a solid edge rusher out of the transfer portal: Trey Moore has committed to play for the Longhorns after two very good season at UTSA. He specifically had a very good season this year with 14 sacks, 17.5 tackles for loss, 45 total tackles, four pass break ups, one forced fumble, and one interception.


Moore came on strong in college because he did not get a lot of recognition out of high school in Texas. Moore has proven he can play with anyone after what he has shown at UTSA. The competition is different with the Longhorns, but he should still be able to get production in the SEC next year.


Ole Miss loses a tight end to the transfer portal: Michael Trigg has entered the transfer portal again after starting his college career at USC before spending the past two seasons at Ole Miss. He rarely saw the field and in his career has 330 receiving yards and five touchdowns.


Trigg was a four-star recruit out of high school from Tampa Bay, but has struggled to find any sort of consistency at the college level. He still has potential, especially with his size at 6-4, 245 pounds. Expect a team to grab him because teams will always need tight ends.


Tuesday, December 19th


Colorado improves their defensive line with a big transfer commit: Samuel Okunlola has decided to transfer to Colorado after transferring from Pitt after one season. In his first season in college football, he had five sacks, six tackles for loss, one forced fumble, and a total of 18 tackles.


He was a three-star recruit out of high school out of Massachusetts, but because of his performance last season, instantly became one of the best defensive lineman transfers available. Colorado beat out Florida State, Texas A&M, and USC for Okunlola too. There is a lot of talk about how Colorado is doing in the transfer portal, but the numbers tell it all, Deion is going after a lot of talent.


Texas A&M loses their best receiver to the transfer portal: Evan Stewart has decided to transfer from Texas A&M after two seasons in College Station. He was up and down for the Aggies, but had 1,163 receiving yards and six touchdowns across two seasons.


He was a five-star recruit out of Texas and was the best receiver in the 2022 recruiting class. He immediately is the best receiver in the transfer portal. He should have a ton of teams lining up for his services. He tweeted about how he was not making much with the Aggies through NIL, so look for NIL to be a major focus for him out of the portal.


Syracuse lands a big-time commit out of the transfer portal on defense: Fadil Diggs has committed to Syracuse and after leaving Texas A&M through the portal. He follows former Texas A&M defensive line coach Elijah Robinson to the Orange. Diggs was great for the Aggies, especially these last two season with him having 28 total tackles, three sacks, and three forced fumbles and then most recently 36 total tackles and four sacks this past season.


Diggs was a four-star recruit from New Jersey in 2020, so this is also a move to go back closer to home. Diggs should make an immediate impact on the defensive line for the Orange, especially with how much the defense needs to get better.


USC loses another defender to the transfer portal: Korey Foreman has decided to transfer from the USC Trojans, joining a growing list of defenders that have decided to jump ship after this past season. He only has 25 tackles in three seasons in Los Angeles.


He was a five-star recruit out of California and was one of the best players in the 2021 recruiting class. He has not shown much in Los Angeles, but because he was so highly rated out of high school, someone is going to take a chance on him. He could still have a lot of potential, but it just depends where he ends up.


Clemson loses a safety to the transfer portal: Lannden Zanders has decided to transfer from Clemson after not playing football since 2021. Zanders has 41 total tackles during his time with the Tigers and he had three sacks and one forced fumble.


He is a former three-star recruit out of North Carolina and he should be able to find a new home out of the transfer portal. He has very good size at 6-1 and 217 pounds too. Bank on someone taking a chance on him even with him not playing football for a bit.


Texas loses a defensive lineman to the transfer portal: Kristopher Ross has decided to transfer from Texas after two seasons in Austin. He rarely saw the field and only had three total tackles during his time with the Longhorns.


Ross was a four-star recruit out of high school in Houston. He has potential out of the transfer portal for most schools. He is 6-2 and 246 pounds and has a lot of potential still. This transfer is mainly about playing time, so bank on a handful of schools looking into him for help on the defensive line.


Georgia lands a big receiver out of the transfer portal: London Humphreys entered the transfer portal out of Vanderbilt after just one season and has committed to play for Georgia. He was one of the best receivers out of the transfer portal and is a big get for the Bulldogs. He stood out on an inconsistent offense in Vanderbilt with 22 receptions, 439 receiving yards, and four receiving touchdowns.


Humphreys was only a three-star recruit out of high school and went to his hometown school in Vanderbilt with him being from there. He was a standout on an inconsistent offense and he has the size to compete with anyone on the Power Five level at 6-3 and 186 pounds. Humphreys should make an immediate impact for the Bulldogs in the receiving corps.


Alabama has added a former five-star to its defensive front: Alabama has added a former five-star to its defensive front, as former Texas A&M defensive lineman LT Overton has committed to the Tide.


Overton was actually regarded as one of the top players in the high school class of 2023, before deciding to reclassify and enroll at Texas A&M in 2022. His best season came as a true freshman where he had three TFL's and one sack, before tallying 17 total tackles before.


Despite the lack of production, he will add some much needed depth to the Tide's defensive front.


He has two years of eligibility remaining.


Missouri picks up arguably the best offensive lineman in the portal: Missouri picked up arguably the best offensive lineman in the transfer portal on Tuesday morning, as former Oklahoma Sooner Cayden Green has committed to the Tigers.


Green is a former four-star, Top 100 recruit in the class of 2023, who started five games for the Sooners as a true freshman this past season.


His departure from Norman after one year was surprising, but now he'll head back to his home state school in Columbia.


Monday, December 18th


USC loses another key defensive player to the transfer portal: Tackett Curtis has decided to transfer from USC after one season in Los Angeles. Curtis was a freshman last season and played great in the linebacking corps. He had 40 tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble, and two fumble recoveries in one year.


Curtis was a four-star recruit out of Louisiana in the 2023 recruiting class. He should have a ton of schools interested in him in the transfer portal because of how many years he has left, combined with how productive he was in just one season. Curtis will be a big pickup to wherever he ends up.


Florida State loses a defensive lineman to the transfer portal: Joshua Farmer has decided to transfer from the Seminoles after three seasons in Tallahassee. He did not have much playing times in his first two years, but this past year he broke out a bit with 32 total tackles.


Farmer was a three-star homegrown prospect in Florida out of high school. He should have many teams interested in him out of the transfer portal. He is an underrated player that is one to watch in the portal where he ends up.


USC loses another defensive player to the transfer portal: Domani Jackson has entered the transfer portal after two seasons in Los Angeles. He did not play much his first season, but this past year he had 32 total tackles as a sophomore.


Jackson was a five-star recruit from the Los Angeles area in the 2022 recruiting class. Jackson has a lot of talent and as a former five-star will have a lot of suitors waiting for him in the transfer portal. According to 247Sports' Matt Zenitz, the early leaders are Michigan and Alabama.


Dante Moore finds a new home out of the transfer portal: Dante Moore has committed to Oregon after entering the transfer portal from UCLA. Moore was only at UCLA for one season, but was thrust into the starting role due to quarterback injuries this season. He appeared in nine games and had 1,610 passing yards with 11 touchdowns in his time playing for the Bruins.


Moore goes to Oregon to sit behind Dillon Gabriel after he committed to the Ducks recently in this cycle. Gabriel fills the starter void for the Ducks immediately and Moore is now their quarterback of the future too. Moore was a five-star recruit out of high school in Detroit and he still has a high upside based on his potential. This is a good pickup for Oregon and a chance for Moore to develop too.


LSU grabs a quarterback out of the transfer portal: AJ Swann transferred out of Vanderbilt after two seasons and decided to transfer to LSU. He was inconsistent for Vanderbilt, partly because of injuries, but he only played in six games last year. In those six games, Swann threw for 1,457 yards and 12 touchdowns.


Swann was a three-star recruit out of Georgia coming out of high school, so he's staying in the SEC. He has not been able to show much at Vanderbilt, so maybe with better coaching and more talent he will play better. This could be an underrated pickup.


Florida State gets a talented edge rusher out of the transfer portal: Marvin Jones Jr. has committed to Florida State after entering the transfer portal out of Georgia. He was at Georgia for two seasons and rarely saw the field, getting a total of 16 tackles over two seasons.


He is a former five-star recruit out of Florida, so with this move he goes closer to home. Jones still has a lot of potential in college and this move puts him in a position to help the Seminoles on the defensive line immediately, especially with some departures they have like Jared Verse going to the NFL.


TCU loses a quarterback to the transfer portal: Chandler Morris has entered the transfer portal after being with the Horned Frogs for the last four seasons. Morris was an on and off starter for TCU, but could not find consistency due to injuries or overall performance.


Morris was a three-star recruit out of high school from Dallas and he has shown that he has talent at quarterback. He should have teams looking at him in the portal, but it might not be at the same Power Five level.


Texas A&M lands a quality defensive back out of the transfer portal: Trey Jones was one of the best defensive backs available in the transfer portal. He was great at Central Michigan for the last five seasons.


He is from Alabama and was only a two-star recruit out of high school. His play for the Chippewas put him on the map for a lot of schools. He has great size for most defensive backs and can easily play on the Power Five level at 6-2, 215 pounds. He should be able to start immediately for Texas A&M in the secondary.


Arizona lands a transfer from the SEC: Jack Luttrell has transferred from Tennessee to Arizona out the transfer portal. He was a freshman this past season and did not see much playing time in Knoxville this season. He has a chance to be a solid safety at the FBS level.


He was a three-star recruit from Georgia out of high school, but after time in an SEC school he could be an immediate help for Arizona, especially transitioning into a new conference in the Big 12 for the Wildcats.


Texas Tech loses a linebacker to the transfer portal: Jesiah Pierre has decided to transfer from Texas Tech. This is Pierre's second transfer after he started his career at Florida. He has been great in the Texas Tech defense during his time in Lubbock improving from 27 to 40 and recently 66 total tackles this past season.


Pierre was a three-star recruit out of Florida in high school and has improved and will immediately provide help to any team that comes calling for him in the transfer portal.


Andrew Mukuba finds a new home out of the portal: Andrew Mukuba has committed to Texas out of the transfer portal. Mukuba was widely considered to be the best defensive back in the transfer portal. He was great in three seasons at Clemson. He has 143 career tackles and 17 career pass breakups in his career with the Tigers.


Mukuba was a four-star recruit out of high school and is from Austin, so this is a homecoming for him. He has great size at safety at 6-foot and 195 pounds. He is a huge pickup for the Longhorns and will be able to help right away in the secondary.


Former Oregon defensive back is headed to the SEC: Former Oregon defensive back Trikweze Bridges is headed to the SEC, as on Monday morning, he announced he'll transfer to Florida.


Bridges has been in the program for five years, appearing in 42 games and started every game during the 2022 season. However, he was passed on the depth chart this year, but still played on 204 snaps overall.


He'll have one season of eligibility remaining.


Sunday, December 17th


Another marquee five-star QB hits the portal: Malachi Nelson has decided to transfer from USC after joining the Trojans last season. Nelson seemed like he was next up after Caleb Williams, especially since he followed Lincoln Riley after being committed to Oklahoma to committing to USC.


Nelson's transfer is a bit surprising, but after being a five-star recruit from California, he should have no shortage of suitors for him out of the transfer portal. Nelson's potential is what is most intriguing about him, so he should be a big name to watch.


Baylor lands their quarterback out the transfer portal: Dequan Finn has transferred to Baylor after transferring from Toledo. Finn was a MAC legend during his time with Rockets. He has accounted for 88 career touchdowns and was the MAC Player of the Year too.


Finn was only a three-star recruit out of high school in Detroit, but made a name for himself at Toledo. He should be able to thrive in Baylor's new up-tempo offense under Jake Spavital.


Vanderbilt lands a quality quarterback out of the transfer portal: Nate Johnson has decided to transfer ro Vanderbilt out of the transfer portal. He played in a few games this season for Utah due to Cam Rising being injured. The Utes used two different quarterbacks due to injury and quality of play and had issues finding consistency. He finished the season with 499 passing yards and three touchdowns.


Johnson was a three-star recruit out of California, but was an underrated player overall. Johnson has the size to be a quality quarterback too at 6-1, 195 pounds. Johnson is an underrated pickup out the portal and should help Vanderbilt get better immediately.


Florida lands a highly sought after defensive lineman out of the transfer portal: Former University of Pennsylvania standout defensive lineman Joey Slackman has committed to Florida. Slackman had significant Power Five interest out of the transfer portal after dominating the Ivy League as the Ivy League Player of the Year this season, when he posted 50 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, and four sacks.


Slackman's intrigue comes from his size and production. On top his great production, he has the size to go from the Ivy League to the SEC at 6-4 and 300 pounds. This is a big pickup for Florida and a massive help for there defense next season.


Washington lands a standout defensive lineman out of the portal: BJ Green from Arizona State has committed to Washington out of the transfer portal after a standout season this past year. Green was an All-Pac-12 selection this season with 39 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss, and six sacks.

Juice Wells finds a new home out of the transfer portal: South Carolina transfer Juice Wells has decided to transfer to Ole Miss. Wells was a standout receiver at James Madison for two seasons and then started out his career playing well at South Carolina before an injury cut his season short this past season.


Wells was one of the best receivers available in the transfer portal and Lane Kiffin and the Rebels went out and grabbed him. This is a great pickup and Wells will be able to contribute on offense right away.


Deion Sanders picks up three more major pieces in the portal on Sunday: Deion Sanders just won't slow down, as he picked up three marquee players in the portal this weekend.


Those players are former LSU defensive end Quency Wiggins, former TCU wide receiver Cordale Russell and former Vanderbilt QB Walter Taylor.


All three were reported by On3's Hayes Fawcett.


Of the three, Russell is probably the most high-profile, as a former four-star who was ranked in the Top 65 nationally in the class of 2023. He did not have a catch in 2023. Wiggins is a former four-star himself, appeared in four games with two TFL's this season.


It continued a busy weekend for Coach Prime in the portal, as on Friday he picked up former four-star twins Keaten and Destin Wade (a linebacker and quarterback respectively) from Kentucky and former Liberty defensive back Preston Hodge.

Dumas-Johnson was one of the stars of Georgia's national title runs in 2021 and 2022, with a breakout season a year ago with 70 tackles, nine TFL's and four sacks. However, he was limited to just 34 tackles and 5.5 TFL's this year, with his season ending injury in the Missouri game in early November.


Still, between talent and experience, he is arguably the most coveted player in the portal right now. He technically has two years of eligibility left, although he is likely seen as a "one and done" type player at his next school.


Kyle McCord has committed to a new school: After a weekend visit, Kyle McCord has committed to Syracuse out of the transfer portal. According to Syracuse.com's Brent Axe, there is an official announcement expected later today. McCord had 3,170 passing yards and 24 passing touchdowns this season.


McCord was a four-star recruit out of Philadelphia in high school. He was solid at Ohio State this past year, but the expectations for the Buckeyes quarterbacks have been sky-high and he was not able to completely meet that standard. He now goes to Syracuse as a big-time get for first-time new head coach Fran Brown.

Thursday, December 14th


Syracuse gets a big visit scheduled for this weekend: After deciding on not going to Nebraska, Kyle McCord is expected to take a visit to Syracuse this weekend. McCord was seen as a perfect fit at Nebraska, but backed out at the last second, so now Syracuse might make more sense.


Kyle McCord was a four-star recruit out of high school, but did not live up to the massive expectations put on him thanks to how well other Ohio State quarterbacks have played recently. He had 3,170 passing yards and 24 touchdowns this season for the Buckeyes. McCord is going to be an underrated pickup wherever he ends up.


Colorado grabs a big receiver out of the transfer portal: Deion Sanders and Colorado got a committment from Will Sheppard from Vanderbilt out the portal. Sheppard was considered one of the best receivers in the portal. He had 2,000 receiving yards & 21 TDs in 3 seasons at Vandy.

Indiana gets their starting quarterback out of the portal: Kurtis Rourke has committed to Indiana after transferring from Ohio. Rourke spent five seasons at Ohio and had a solid career. Now he is the new starting quarterback for new head coach Curt Cignetti at Indiana. He was the MAC Offensive Player of the Year for 2022 and he had 7,651 passing yards and 61 total touchdowns with the Bobcats.


Rourke came to Ohio out of Canada as just a two-star recruit. Now he was one of the better transfer quarterbacks available in the portal. This is an underrated pickup for the Hoosiers out of the transfer portal.


Ole Miss lands a very good defensive back out of the transfer portal: Key Lawrence has transferred to Ole Miss after starting his career at Tennesse and then at Oklahoma these last three seasons. He had 148 tackles, three interceptions, and six forced fumbles during his last three seasons in Norman.


Lawrence was a four-star recruit out of Tennessee in high school and brings in a lot of talent and experience from Oklahoma to Ole Miss. Lawrence has very good size for a safety at 6-1 and 206 pounds. Lawrence should be an immediate standout for Ole Miss on defense in the secondary.


Aidan Chiles follows his coach after finding a home in the transfer portal: Aidan Chiles has committed to Michigan State to follow his coach, Jonathan Smith, from Corvallis to East Lansing. Chiles was the prize of Oregon State's last recruiting class. He saw the field a bit last season, throwing for 309 passing yards and four touchdowns.


Chiles was a four-star recruit in last year's recruiting class out of California. He should be the day one starter for Jonathan Smith at quarterback next season. He has a lot of potential and now he has a familiar coach to help him realize it.


A slew of power programs have emerged for Tennessee star Tyler Baron: Tyler Baron is one of the most coveted players in the transfer portal, and it shows with a number of high-profile programs in hot pursuit.


According to Chad Simmons of 247 Sports, Texas, Georgia, Ole Miss and Alabama are among the schools that are after Baron.

Franklin adds some depth to the Oklahoma backfield, which has lost three players to the portal over the last couple weeks.


Maalik Murphy is in the portal: In news that isn't all that surprising, Texas quarterback Maalik Murphy has told Texas' coaching staff he intends to transfer.

The news was first reported by ESPN's Pete Thamel.


Murphy was forced into action for Quinn Ewers this past season, starting a handful of games, and throwing for 477 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions.


However, with the increasing likelihood that Ewers could return for another season, and with Arch Manning coming off a redshirt year, there isn't an obvious path to playing time for Murphy.


He will now get a fresh start somewhere else.


Cam Ward sets up another visit: Cam Ward, arguably the most coveted quarterback in the transfer portal, has set up a second visit.


Just one day after visiting Miami, we found out that Ward will now visit Florida State next.
