    Yes Smothers all day long. He fits the long line of dual threat Nebraska QB's going back to Eric Crouch and Scott Frost back in the day.

    I'm surprised no one has brought up Ryan Stapp, an elite cornerback! who transferred to Minnesota from FCS Abilene Christian.

    ACU fans have nothing but praise for this guy, who also had offers from Mississippi State, Nebraska, Washington State, Northwestern and Louisville! I seriously think he has a shot at playing CB in the NFL ala Troy Apke and (soon) Riley Moss. This is definitely a dude to monitor.

    Nix has been solid. Iowa or Wisconsin would be nice. He could certainly compliment either of those teams.

    Nice find. He will be one to watch.

    He could pretty much start at any other PAC 12 school. Much like Nix I wouldn’t mind seeing him at either Iowa or Wisconsin.

    yea that would be ideal. I saw on Twitter (so take that for what it is worth) that his girlfriend plays soccer at pit, so naturally the speculation is that he replaces Pickett there.

    QB Spencer Rattler and TE Austin Stogner have transferred to South Carolina. Ewers did commit to Texas.

    Surprise transfer to UCLA

    Former Duke senior WR Jake Bobo transferred to UCLA.
    Bobo (6'5/215) was one of the few bright spots for Duke this season, as the senior wideout reeled in 74-of-105 targets for a 70 percent catch rate, 794 yards, 10.7 YPC and one touchdown while earning a 78.9 receiving grade from PFF. He was fed a steady diet of short-to-medium range targets from QB Gunnar Holmberg, with 43 of his receptions going for first downs while securing 12 of his 22 contested targets. A reliable, sure-handed outside wideout, Bobo dropped just two of 76 catchable pass opportunities for an exceptional 2.6 percent drop rate. He should fit right in at UCLA as a dependable starting wide receiver.


    Colorado State looks to be moving on from the Addazio era quickly

    Former Nevada freshman QB Clay Millen transferred to Colorado State.
    Originally an Arizona recruit, Millen (6'3/188) flipped to Nevada after HC Kevin Sumlin was unceremoniously dismissed. He is on the move after former Nevada HC Jay Norvell took over for the one-and-done failure known as Steve Addazio at Colorado State and will compete for the starting quarterback job in the spring. The Snoqualmie, WA native was rated as the 10th overall prospect in Washington and 38th pro-style QB in the nation from this year's freshman class, so Millen certainly has the pedigree to be a multi-year starter in Fort Collins

    I like Bobo to UCLA, especially if Phillips returns that would be a great duo. I was high on Chase Cota a few years ago but that high is starting to wear off.

    WR Brady Boyd transfers to Texas Tech, you can bet I’m excited about that!!

    Former LSU redshirt freshman QB Max Johnson transferred to Texas A&M.

    Johnson (6'5/219) announced on December 7th that he would be entering the transfer portal, and has officially committed to join the Aggies in 2022. Johnson should have a strong shot at securing the starting role for Texas A&M, after quarterback Zach Calzada also entered the transfer portal and is on his way out of Texas A&M. This season, Johnson threw for 2,814 yards, 27 touchdowns and six interceptions, and led the Tigers to an upset win over Texas A&M on November 27th.

    Former Purdue junior QB Jack Plummer will be transferring to Cal.
    After losing the starting job to teammate Aidan O'Connell, Plummer (6'2/220) entered his name into the transfer portal just three days after the season ended. In his career with Purdue, Plummer has thrown for 3,405 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. With Chase Garbers having declared for the draft, Plummer's biggest competition for the job likely will be with sophomore Zach Johnson, unless either Robby Rowell or Ryan Glover return.



    Also the Texas quotaback is transferring out. It should be either Ewers or Card starting for the Longhorns. My money is on Ewers for the obvious reasons.

    In another disappointing development Kansas State has decided that they did not see how much Adrian Martinez stinks and he has transferred there. He will probably be gifted the starting job.

    Not a bad decision if he gets a fair shake.

    Former Auburn junior QB Bo Nix will transfer to Oregon.

    Nix (6'3/214) has made the decision to go out west to continue his collegiate career for the Ducks. NIx finished with 7,251 yards and 39 touchdowns in three seasons with the Tigers. With current Oregon quarterback Anthony Brown wrapping up his career for the Ducks after the Alamo Bowl, the transition for Nix to be the next starting quarterback in Eugene is an easy one.

    Former USC sophomore QB Kedon Slovis has committed to Pittsburgh.
    Slovis (6'3/205) entered the transfer portal on December 13th, and decided in less than a week to play ball at Pitt in 2022. Slovis' days began to look numbered with the Trojans after freshman quarterback Jaxson Dart took the reigns of the quarterback position later in season. In three seasons at USC, Slovis has thrown for 7,559 yards, 58 touchdowns and 24 interceptions, and threw for 2,151 yards, 11 touchdowns and eight interceptions this season. Slovis will have wide receiver Jordan Addison to throw to in 2022, who is coming off a season in which he caught 93 passes for 1,479 yards and 17 touchdowns on his way to winning the Biletnikoff Award, which is given annually to the best receiver in the nation.

    Former Ohio State redshirt freshman QB Jack Miller has committed to Florida.
    Miller (6'3/215) entered the transfer portal in late November after a 2021 season that featured him throwing for just 101 yards while completing 7-of-14 passes. Earlier this season, Miller was suspended after being cited for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, which could make a fresh start for him helpful in more ways than one. Now heading to Florida with new head coach Billy Napier, Miller may still need to overcome incumbent quarterback Anthony Richardson, who will likely compete with Miller for the starting role this offseason. Quarterback Emory Jones has already entered the transfer portal, but is expected to play in Florida's bowl game. Miller could be a great addition to Florida in 2022.

    A day after his dominant performance...seems a bit odd.

    Former Wyoming sophomore QB Levi Williams will enter the transfer portal.

    The confetti hasn't even been cleaned up yet on Wyoming's celebration before they find out their starting quarterback is gone. Not more than 24 hours after Wyoming defeated Kent State in the Idaho Potato Bowl did Williams (6'5/224) announce he will be leaving the program. He didn't become the starter for the Cowboys till late in the season due to the struggles of Sean Chambers. Williams wasn't much of a passing threat this season, but his 200-yard rushing performance against Kent State showed he can move the ball with his legs.

    Weird! Was just going to say looks like Wyoming has found their guy at QB next few years. Some of the Blue Bloods must have come calling.

    He has alot of development to do with his passing game. Hopefully he makes the right decision.

    No doubt about it. Be interesting where he ends up.

    Thought Nix and Slovis chose well. What do you think about Miller?

    With the new coach coming into Florida it may work out well. He's not tied to the quotaback and the other quota is leaving. I don't like UF but they would be more palatable with Miller under center.

    Agreed on Slovis and Nix. Max Johnson also made a good decision.

    True, Napier really can't get much caste than what Florida already is. Johnson chose wisely. That was a given once his bro landed there just prior.

    Unfortunately not much news for CF favorites Wisconsin or Iowa.

    Also excited to Jack Plummer to make some noise out West. Garbers chose to go pro. Kind of a fringe prospect.

    Disappointed in K-State.

    Former UNC WR Beau Corrales transfers to SMU. Corrales was primed for a big year this season but ended up missing the whole year due to injury. SMU is a great landing spot for him because they love to throw the ball and he should become an immediate starter. He has over 1100 yards and 12 TD’s in his career.

    Wise choice and he gets to play his final year back home in Texas! I'd like to see Corrales top his career numbers in 1 season as a Mustang!
