Trey Sermon announced on Saturday his plans to leave the Oklahoma football program and enter the transfer portal. Where could he land?
After completing his degree in three years at Oklahoma, Trey Sermon is immediately eligible to play in the fall of 2020 as a graduate transfer upon finding a new school. He announced via Twitter on Saturday his plans with a post thanking many who’ve helped him along the way.
“I appreciate all the blessings and opportunities I have received. To the coaches, trainers, fans and my teammates, I will always cherish my time here and am grateful for all that’s been done for me.” He continued, “I’ve enjoyed my three years as a Sooner and am looking forward to what’s next.”
As much as Sermon enjoyed his three years as a member of the Oklahoma football program, Sooner fans might’ve enjoyed it more. They watched Sermon pile up 2,076 rushing yards, 391 receiving yards, and 25 all-purpose touchdowns in 37 career games. He did suffer a knee injury in 2019, though, that sidelined the Georgia native for the team’s final five contests.
With immediate eligibility, Sermon should be a coveted running back in the transfer portal. Assuming he returns to form, he could be an immediate upgrade for plenty of top-tier teams that are on the cusp of a College Football Playoff run. He generated interest from a majority of top programs as a high school recruit, earning scholarship offers from Alabama, Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State and others, but ultimately chose Oklahoma.
Where could Sermon land this time around?
