    I expect him to carve up the Big 12 this year. If he stays healthy he will certainly get a nice bump up draft boards. I was personally hoping to see him at Oregon State as they were a surprise team last year and he could of led them to a potential Rose Bowl berth. Rooting hard for him to succeed as a mountaineer!

    As an aside I don’t have anything against Stetson Bennett, I feel he is a very good college QB but him returning to UGA is at the detriment of some of the younger, highly ranked QBs that have a legit shot at the NFL.

    Former 5 star TE Baylor Cupp transfers from Texas A&M to Texas Tech. You can bet I’m happy about this one!! He battled injuries and didn’t really do anything in his 3 years at A&M. If he can stay healthy he can propel himself into an NFL prospect.

    Arizona St Wr Ricky Pearsall enters the transfer portal. My guess is Herm Edwards pushed him down the depth chart during spring practices even though he is their best Wr

    Good escape the dumpster fire that is ASU.

    Cupp to Texas Tech is a good choice!

    Noticed Cole Joyce LB from UCF is transferring already. Arkansas native, with legit 4.5 speed. Like to see him make a homecoming. LB needy teams should be lining up for his services.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the case. Pearsall should make an instant impact wherever he goes, NFL potential with a couple good seasons.

    Memphis QB Grant Gunnel back in the portal.

    Wisconsin and Iowa take notice!

    Transfer portal closed yesterday. Some names of note that have entered the portal:

    SMU WR Tyler Page
    Rutgers DL Ryan Keeler
    Pitt QB Joey Yellen - committed to Hawaii
    WF QB Billy Edwards
    Utah LB Carson Tabaracci
    SMU LB Mason Jolley
    Utah RB Braedon Wissler
    Utah Safety Ben Renfro
    Ark St RB Lincoln Pare (with Butch Jones in as head coach this was inevitable)
    UCF LB Cole Joyce
    Michigan DL Jack Stewart


    Interesting to see the exodus of White athletes from Utah. Also Hawaii has lost 20 or so players - they have left the team. If the HC of Hawaii were smart he would just round up some White athletes from the transfer portal to rebuild the program.

    Thanks for the update!

    Nice to see Tyler Page again. I was hoping he would return to SMU in 2021 but he decided to hang up the cleats. Looks like he has an itch to use his last year of eligibility. Hope he goes to a FBS school where he can see some playing time, he is talented!

    Lincoln Pare has transferred to Texas State. They have 2 RB’s with a decent amount of experience returning, hopefully he can challenge them for immediate playing time. In 2 seasons at Arkansas State he recorded 1266 scrimmage yards and 6 TD’s.

    (Relevant) Transfer portal WR’s:
    Arizona State WR Ricky Pearsall
    Texas A&M WR Caleb Chapman
    Washington State WR Joey Hobert
    Kansas WR Kyler Pearson
    South Carolina WR Trey Adkins
    SMU WR Tyler Page
    Minnesota WR Brock Annexstad

    The transfer portal, NIL and immediate eligibility are all changing college football for the worst IMO. Cuck Riley has been abusing and tampering since he move to USC.

    Addison was the Biletnikoff winner last year. It's not a coincidence he is now ending up at USC.


    USC has added 15 players from the transfer portal.

    This even before we get an official decision from star Pitt WR Jordan Addison, who recently entered the transfer portal amid several national reports that he was being delivered to USC via a massive NIL deal. USC HC Lincoln Riley, who said he was "open for business" in the transfer portal when he took the Trojans job in December, has stepped on feet with his aggressive new approach. Pitt officials believe tampering may have occurred in Addison's recruitment. Others are unclear about guidelines, or stunned by the lack of them. "It's NFL free agency without any rules," one Power 5 coach told ESPN. "It's nuts."

    I saw that a college basketball star was able to bargain for a 400K a year plus a free car in a NIL deal. This deal essentially means somebody receiving this amount of financial compensation is a pro but must keep up his grades to keep receiving the compensation.

    For many athletes they will stay in college if they aren't locks to make a NBA or NFL squad as no other leagues can pay this with the weak competition of college.

    It's whole new world and in the short term will help players that are pro prospects but to say this is healthy for the competition of college sports is up for debate.

    WR Ricky Pearsall has narrowed down his top 3 to Florida, Oregon, and Auburn. Yikes, all teams that are not white friendly at all. Hope he makes a good decision.

    These 3 teams combined for a grand total of 8 white starters in 2021, with 4 of them being offensive linemen.

    If he were smart he would go down to Tucson and play for the University of Arizona. He would not only start but probably be the star receiver day 1 with
    a chance to shine in the prime time and then move on to the NFL Draft after the season ends.

    I like this transfer and the bravado Beville is showing by transferring to Oklahoma. Caste F@ggot Riley did his best to darken up the QB position for the Sooners. Beville winning the job would be a surprise but I like him over the undersized poly Gabriel. The rest of the QBs listed below are of the magical race. Rooting for Beville to have a strong fall camp to win the starting job.

    Former Pittsburgh redshirt sophomore QB Davis Beville transferred to Oklahoma.

    This one is a bit of a head-scratcher. It wasn't a surprise to see Beville hit the portal, as he was QB3 on the pecking order behind Kedon Slovis and Nick Patti in the battle to replace Kenny Pickett. But it sure was surprising the situation he decided to bolt for. UCF transfer Dillion Gabriel is the prohibitive favorite to replace the USC-bound Caleb Williams, and the depth chart is stocked behind him by Penn State transfer Micah Bowens, four-star freshman Nick Evers, and returnees Ben Harris and Ralph Rucker. In sporadic playing time at Pitt over the last two seasons, Beville, a former three-star recruit, went 17-of-22 for 202 yards and a TD. He tweeted "Betting on myself!" when announcing the decision. That's undoubtedly the case, but most would say there are long odds on the wager he just made.

    Gunnell with another step in the wrong direction. Really surprised no PAC 12, Big Ten or Big 12 teams offered him. Hopefully he can stay healthy and be dominant in the group of 5.

    North Texas received a verbal commitment from former Memphis redshirt senior QB Grant Gunnell.

    Gunnell (6'6/218) transferred to Memphis from Arizona in hopes of securing the starting job. What he didn't see happening was having a lower-body injury that would end his season. It was initially announced back in January that he would compete for a starting job with incumbent true sophomore Seth Henigan but he chose to enter the portal less than two weeks ago instead. He heads to a Mean Green program that saw success under starting QB Austin Aune. Gunnell heads to Denton in hopes of unseating Aune with his two seasons of eligibility remaining.

    Oklahoma gets another White QB. With the other offers on the table it's hard to blame him for choosing Oklahoma. He dominated his one year in Junior college. I do hope either he or Beville become the starter under Venables.

    JUCO QB General Booty has committed to Oklahoma.
    Booty (6'3"/194) is the son of LSU wide receiver Abram and the nephew of former LSU and NFL QB Josh. He is coming from Tyler junior college. It's a bit of a surprise that Oklahoma was in for Booty, as he only had reported offers from New Mexico and Presbyterian up to this point, but clearly Oklahoma saw something they liked in Booty and will take him on for the 2022 season.

    USC wr Jake Smith is no longer with the team. Rice cb Andrew Bird is no longer with them. Can't find an explanation. Hes been mentioned before but the more I watch Rice rb transfer , Dean Connor, Im telling you this kid could be a Heisman finalist. He's not the next coming of Christian McCaffrey but hes damn close. I remember lurking back here when C-MAc was in high school and I said to myself " this kid is going to win the Heisman ". He clearly did and did not but this Connor kid is the total package. If hes not first on the depth chart by fall ball he will be by game 5. Rice is not really a pass happy team so I could see this kid go for at least 1,500 yards in the next year or two.

    So if Dean Connor is as good as you say we will have to redo the song and call it Rice, Rice, Baby! :) I have to be honest. I don't know that much about him but now you have
    got me excited to go watch his high school hilites on video. Do you think he will be better than Max Borghi? What about Will Shipley? I think he can win the heisman as long
    as he stays healthy. There is nothing Shipley can't do on a football field. He is Cmac 2.0 and may have an equal or higher ceiling in the future. Ok back to Dean Connor. I'm going
    to go watch some film. Thanks for the update. I really get excited to see great white running backs!

    Wr Ricky Pearsall has chosen Florida today. I would love to see the Whittemore brothers ( Creed and Trent ) and Pearsall tear it up as a triumverate in a couple of years. An SEC caste team with three starting white wr's would be awesome.
