. . . Outgoing: 17. 537. . Vanderbilt. Incoming: 12. . 15

One of the bright spots of Vanderbilt’s 2-10 season under Clark Lea were his wide receivers, London Humphreys and Will Sheppard, but Lea lost both to the transfer portal this offseason. On top of that Lea, lost sack leader Nate Clifton and linebacker Ethan Barr, who was fourth on the team with 54 tackles. 

The Commodores lost 17 players off the team and replaced them with a class of 12 incoming transfers which included two quarterbacks, Nate Johnson from Utah and Diego Pavia from New Mexico State to replace AJ Swann and Ken Seals who both left through the portal. 

Both Pavia and Johnson could represent an upgrade at quarterback, but without their two top receivers, the Commodores are unlikely to improve in Lea’s fourth season.
