3 college football teams that need a quarterback in transfer portal
The college football transfer portal is open for business and here are three teams that could use a quarterback.
It’s always interesting to see what kind of movement there is at the quarterback position when it comes to the college football transfer portal.
So far, there hasn’t been a lot. There are still some former starting quarterbacks in the transfer portal from the earlier window such as Chance Nolan from Oregon State. Another name to know is Harrison Bailey. He was a four-star recruit in high school and is leaving UNLV.
Outside of that, there isn’t much in the transfer portal in terms of quarterbacks but the portal window is open until April 30, so there is still plenty of time.
There isn’t going to be the same number of talented quarterbacks as before, but there are a few big names to watch. Georgia, Ohio State, Texas, UCLA, Nebraska, and others have crowded quarterback rooms taking part in competitions.
It’s hard to predict who could enter the portal but say Brock Vandagriff decided to leave Georgia for the transfer portal — college football teams would pounce in a heartbeat.
So with that in mind, here is a look at three college football teams that could really use a quarterback from the spring transfer portal window.
The Florida football spring game was last week and didn’t leave Gator fans feeling great about the quarterback position. Graham Mertz and Jack Miller both struggled.
It’s hard to put too much stock in a spring game though. Offenses sometimes aren’t as sharp and the way teams are divided up matters too.
Florida could still have confidence in both Mertz and Miller to be their starters, but the Gators have to hope another quality quarterback becomes available.
At the very least, the Gators could use another veteran with experience. Florida has just two scholarship quarterbacks and that number needs to grow before the 2023 season.
I wouldn’t feel great about going into the season with Mertz as the starter. He did have some good moments at Wisconsin and he’s got the potential to be a solid game manager, but the upside is limited so watch Florida if some former highly-rated QBs enter the transfer portal.
