    Michigan's other other quarterback, freshman Dan Villari, is transferring to Syracuse. Villari was a modestly-ranked recruit out of Long Island who didn't receive any other P5 offers because it's "not a good football area" (too white). He owns lots of high school records and has been compared to Taysom Hill's upside as a big, strong, mobile runner. Michigan had a gimmick package for him this season, but he wasn't really ever expected to compete for snaps. With Michigan's new QB coach recruiting only blacks, Villari was smart to cash in his resume for a chance to start closer to home.

    I was always surprised, but not really surprised, that Sanders never even made the box score for Alabama.

    Too bad about Michigan’s cuck QB coach. I am hopeful that McCarthy has a nice 3 year run as a starter though. Good for Villari to escape to a better situation.

    Frost continues to muddy up QB position at Nebraska! What the ****! Bringing in Casey Thompson to replace Adrian Martinez.

    He's done some good at Nebraska. Bringing back White LBs was nice.

    He’s a hell of an athlete too! Better than Thompson

    There have been a load of transfers from our guys. I know a lot of posters here prefer that our highly rated QBs land at spots with a proven track record of consistently playing and starting white QBs, but it seems right now that a lot of our guys are going to places where they will replace non-white QBs.

    Off the top of my head;

    Hunter Johnson (Northwestern/Clemson) back(!) to Clemson. Should challenge DJ Uiagaleli as a starter, although incoming recruit Cade Klubnik might replace both.
    Bo Nix (Auburn) to Oregon, where he should replace Ty Thompson.
    Quinn Ewers (Ohio State) to Texas to replace Casey Thompson.
    And although Thompson just left to Nebraska, so did Chubba Purdy (Florida State), both will have to battle Logan Smothers.
    I never saw him mentioned here, but Dillon Gabriel (UCF) landed at Oklahoma after a brief time committing to UCLA. He is a bit tan, but a google search of his parents shows that he appears to be fully white.
    Jack Miller (Ohio State) should challenge Emory Jones at Florida.
    Paul Tyson (Alabama) could challenge Jayden Daniels at Arizona State.
    Zach Calzada (Texas A&M) should replace Nix at Auburn. Max Johnson (LSU) replace Calzada at TAMU.
    Cade Fortin will walk on at Arkansas, I wouldn't count him out.

    All in all, the transfer portal should hopefully add to our ranks in starting FBS QBs. A lot of these guys left entrenched non-white starters to places where they should be able to win the starting job.

    Other notable transfers WR Joseph Manjack (USC to Houston), pretty caste team but if he rightfully gets a starting job he should put up BIG numbers. Already made an impact at USC as a freshman. LB West Weeks (Virginia to LSU) another caste team, but one in rebuild mode, should hopefully contribute right away. Alabama LB Jackson Bratton (UAB) and Drew Sanders (Arkansas) should both be immediate starters. Sanders is a future NFL prospect and his arrival at Arkansas should make them more tolerable as two of their current white starting LBs are graduating.

    There are so many more players transferring in and out, hopefully me or someone will else will get to them. Just saw Chase Cota (UCLA) is leaving, could he wind up at Oregon?

    Hunter Johnson returning to Clemson is a little bizarre. He was pretty bad during his stint at Northwestern. Ideally Klubnik just wins the job outright. Ugalagailei was a pretty epic bust.

    Rumor is that JT Daniels will transfer out of UGA.

    Thank you Bucky and LF.

    Two more white QBs just transferred to teams where they should be able to displace non-white starters.

    Virginia Tech QB Braxton Burmeister committed to San Diego State. Burmeister is an athletic freak, and his dual threat abilities should light up the MWC. Here's an interesting article on the San Diego native's elite athleticism: https://richmond.com/sports/college...cle_ed9409df-76ee-59cf-a98a-f755d6121a33.html

    Tennessee QB Harrison Bailey lands at UNLV. Just an hour or so later, it was announced that Tate Martell would be retiring. He played sparingly at UNLV, was this the last straw? Martell was an elite HS QB and it's sad to see it end like this.

    Solid post Heralded Defender! Thanks for making the list!

    Had always been curious to see what would become of the only 2 white scholarship players on Alabama's Defense!
    .....Drew Sanders did a solid job when called upon before the injury. His replacement is a very talented Freshman(SAM LBer); however could they have BOTH played next season on the field at the same time @ Weakside LBer?) ? Sanders should thrive at Arkansas aka Snow Patrol LB Unit! Maybe we can see him ""Strip Sack"" his "Ex" team mate QB Bryce Young and return it for a TD!
    .....Smart move by Jackson Bratton at UAB too...he can become All Conference...looked good in the Spring game.

    Houston WR Jake Kerslow's (Old Dominion transfer) success this past season may have opened the door for Manjack??
    Will also be curious to see what All purpose WR Jake Smith (Texas transfer) does @ USC next season!.....should have a big impact!

    Interesting news on ex UCLA WR Chase Cota....seems physical enough to switch over to DB like his NFL/Dad (Chad)....could also remind me of the rangy 6'-3" Jon "The Natural" McGraw to played in the NFL NY Jets

    I had always though QB Dillon Gabriel was Hawaiian. He's a good QB....

    Nebraska LB Will Honas is in the Transfer Portal too..

    Yeah that is weird returning back to Clemson. Klubnik looks like the future for sure!

    Wonder where JT Daniels ends up? Went 2 - 0 as starter before being injured...guess Carson Beck will battle out Brock Vandargriff for starting QB next season? 4 star Freshman Gunner Stockton is on his way too...

    From what I’ve heard, Stetson Bennett is likely to return for one last season which could be why JT Daniels is leaving.

    Looks like the talk was true, Stetson Bennett is returning which is why JT Daniels is leaving.

    Dillon Gabriel is Hawaiian, I have nothing negative to say about him, the guy is a solid QB.

    Arizona S Logan Kraut is in the portal after not playing as a true freshman. Kraut was a scholarship player, not a walk on.

    S Landon Guidry is transferring from Mississippi State. Always seemed on the edge of becoming a starter and got consistently screwed, didn’t see any playing time in 2021. 19 tackles, 1.5 TFL in his career, 6th year senior.

    WR John David White is transferring from Arkansas to Central Arkansas. Saw some playing time in his 3 seasons but only had 46 receiving yards. Comes from a long family line of Arkansas football players.

    Edge Chance Main is transferring from FCS Incarnate Word to Colorado. Also considered Florida State. He played really well in 19 and 20 before missing last year with an injury. Carson Wells replacement?

    Speaking of Florida State, DE Josh Griffis transferred to HBCU Jackson State (Deion Sanders school).

    App State LB TD Roof transferred to Oklahoma, his dad is the defensive coordinator.

    Jackson State may end up with more White starters than an SEC or Sun Belt team this year. :D:p

    Nebraska LB Will Honas transfers to Kansas State. Good landing spot for him!

    Cuck Riley gets his quotaback to follow him. The PAC 12 might be just a notch above the Big 12 in terms of defense (or lack thereof).

    I'm actually happy about that. There were rumors Wisconsin was in the running. Williams was already getting Russell Wilson worship for supposedly even considering Madison! Even though I'm no fan of Mertz, that fanboydom would have been awful.

    Right now Mertz despite his lofty HS ranking, is looking more like a Stave/Hornibrook type QB. He still has time to improve, but was hoping for one of the many White QBs in transfer portal to transfer in and create some competition.

    JT Daniel to either Wisconsin or Iowa would be great. I saw the Williams to Wisconsin rumors too. It’s unfortunate that Chryst seems open to bringing in and recruiting quotas now.

    VMI WR Jakob Herres committed to Richmond. I’m not a fan of this move, at 6’4 225 with 3000+ career receiving yards he probably should’ve/could’ve gone to a much bigger and relevant school. Virginia or VT didn’t heavily pursue him? Questionable decision to stay in the FCS with a resume like his.
