The college football transfer portal is open for business again and here’s a look back at some of the moves so far.
As wild as the first college football transfer portal window was during the winter, expect things to be just as crazy during the spring transfer portal window.
College football teams got a glimpse of what it will be like on Saturday as nearly 100 players officially put their names into the transfer portal.
One of the top entrants into the transfer portal on Saturday was Georgia defensive lineman Bear Alexander. The No. 50 recruit according to the 247 Sports composite rankings for 2022, is planning on entering the college football transfer portal after two sacks in the national title game.
The 325-pounder is certainly going to get plenty of attention. At this point, many college football teams could use D-line depth and guys as talented as Alexander will be few and far between.
Yet, a bunch of former four-star prospects entered the transfer portal on Saturday. Auburn had a couple of D-line prospects such as Jeffery M’Ba. Brenen Thompson was a former top-100 wide receiver who entered the college football transfer portal from Texas and there were also two key additions from the Mountain West.
College football transfer portal commitments
One was safety Patrick McMorris, a two-time all-conference player for San Diego State. He entered the spring transfer portal window and is already committed to Cal.
Another former all-conference pick in the Mountain West that is available is former Wyoming offensive guard Emmanuel Pregnon, who is 6-foot-6, 320 pounds. He has one year of starting experience and multiple years of eligibility remaining.
According to On3.com, Oregon has already jumped in the mix with an offer and I’d expect a bunch more for Pregnon as college football teams will fight it out for quality guys in the trenches.
Another player in the college football transfer portal that has been available, Gary Bryant Jr., a former top-50 recruit in the 2020 class and top-ranked transfer right now via 247 Sports, has picked up a crystal ball projection to Oregon.
Bryant, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound wide receiver caught 44 passes for 57 yards and seven touchdowns as a sophomore, but only played in two games last season. He would be a solid pickup for the Ducks, who would be getting a proven veteran that can produce in the Pac-12.
Stayed tuned though, because things are about to get crazy when it comes to the college football transfer portal as many more entrants are expected in the coming days.
