I’m sorry but I think the McCord transfer is disappointing. Syracuse is a middling program that is honestly more known for basketball. At Ohio St he was competing for the national championship and led the team to a 1 loss season in a tough conference. I figured he’d go to another program that is consistently in the top 15. At best now he elevates Syracuse to a winning record and a lower tier bowl. Can’t see his NFL chances being helped much, if at all.

Best case scenario is he is able to put together a 9/10 win season while playing at a high level. I honestly don’t think Nebraska under Rhule would have been a better option. It seems a lot of teams weren’t recruiting him at all in the portal.

At least Houser to ECU gives us some rooting interest in ECU for next 3 years.

Colorado well on it's way to becoming 90% black - Sanders commits in the transfer portal are all black including 2 quotas. Rooting hard for this experiment to fail. 8 White kids have transferred out. Looking forward to "Black Amerika's team" to fail again and again under Sanders.

I’m with you there. Those 8 are smart to flee the Wakanda Water Buffaloes.

Check out Robbie Weinsteins take in on Ethan Barr.

LB ETHAN BARR, VANDERBILT TO WASHINGTON​

12137229.jpg
Ethan Barr(Photo: Carly Mackler / Contributor, Getty)
Rating: 3-star 86
2023 stats: 55 total tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 1 pass break-up, 1 forced fumble
Washington will get a ton of experiencewith Barr, who started during portions of four different seasons at Vanderbilt. A true middle linebacker who is a relatively sure tackler and plays smart in coverage, Barr should be a better fit in the Big Ten than in the SEC.
Barr lacks speed, which showed up in a big way for the Commodores. But it's easy to see him fitting in when the Huskies face Big Ten opponents like Iowa and Northwestern next year.

I guess Weinstein (name checks out) didn't see that SEC defenses as a whole are hot garbage. Good for Barr though, seems like Washington will be slightly interesting next year.

You would think they would be ashamed to sport that rapist last name. But now they have full control, no need to anglicize the surnames anymore.

Thanks for the heads up! Will be interesting to see where difference maker like Anton Juncaj ends up! No doubt he can thrive at a Big time program like ex- team mate Jared Verse just did.

Freshman Safety Jack Luttrell is transferring from Tennesee......going to Arizona. aka ‘White Lightning,’ Maybe he can revamp the old "Desert Swarm" Defense aka like mad man Chuck Cecil did!

UCLA TE Carsen Ryan headed to Utah ....with TE Brandt Kuithe finally healthy and returning along w starting QB Cameron Rising ; Utah should have another solid year!

FCS Stud/ SE Louisiana TE Bauer Sharp headed to Oklahoma

Glad to see Penn D-Lineman Joey Slackman headed to Florida
Worked well for Western Michigan Transfer D-Tackle Braden Fiske now at Florida State jumping up 2024 Draft Radars!

Not a bad choice for McCord.

Former UW OL Trey Wedig to Indiana.

2 more small school DL I’ve seen garnering interest are Youngstown State’s Anthony Johnson. He’s 6’3 295 had 30 tackles and 5 sacks from interior DL last season. Rutgers, Illinois, Pittsburgh, Memphis, and Wisconsin have all offered. Hope he chooses somewhere where he will be a starter and not a rotation guy. Believe he’s got 2 years of eligibility left.

The other is Austin Peay’s Travis Bates. 6’3 265 DE. Less productive but is only a RS Freshman. Had 30 something tackles and 3 sacks.
Johnson chose Illinois!

Super weird Ivy League is producing highly sought after DL. Buncha overlooked honkeys the 1st time around! Fuggin mystery though as to why they were ignored out of HS!

Anything that promotes mobility probably helps white athletes more since most of them are stuck in shitty programs to start out if they didn’t possess all world stats in high school (and in some cases even if they did).

I took another look at that nj high school state championship grid I posted and couldn’t believe how white most of those teams would be

all in all, is transfer portal a net positive for white players?

I think it's a slight net positive. We are seeing White guys jump from FCS to FBS schools. The only real "caste" position there seems to be an uptick in is WR. Defensive Back and Running back don't have much to offer in terms of the good guys right now.

WR London Humphreys transfer to Georgia. Looking forward to seeing him and McConkey on the field together!

https://www.on3.com/db/london-humphreys-150466/

From the above link:

London Humphreys originally intended on being a track star in college or maybe even a star in basketball or baseball, instead of signing to play college football. In the spring of 2022, Humphreys broke Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey’s regional record in the 200-meter dash with a time of 21.73 seconds. On the baseball field, he hit about .500 in the summer before his senior season. And in basketball, he can do a windmill dunk without a problem. Yet, he turned to football during his junior season after initially walking away from the gridiron after his freshman season. But he returned in 2021 and racked up more than 1,500 yards receiving. As a senior in 2022, he averaged 24.4 yards a reception and totaled 1,100 yards and 12 touchdowns. His father, Clark, a former assistant coach at Vanderbilt and Auburn, was an All-America pole vaulter at Auburn, where he won a national championship. His mother, Erin, also a former Auburn assistant, was an All-America decathlete at South Carolina and qualified for the 2000 Olympic trials. “I mean, he’s one of those rare athletes (who has) got the highest ceiling of probably anyone we’ve coached, athletically,” Ingle Martin, his high school coach, told The Athletic. “It’ll be really interesting to watch when he gets into a full-time football program what happens and how he progresses. When he broke Jalen Ramsey’s 200 time, I think everyone kind of took note that he’s got world-class speed. Talk about hitting the genetic lottery, he hit it.”

I just read that the younger Etienne has transferred to Georgia.
For some odd reason, I thought maybe Cash Jones would get a shot.

Will Howard is now projected to pick Ohio State in the wake of Miller Moss' monster night for previous favorite USC. Howard would extend the Buckeyes' improbable streak of seasons with white quarterbacks to a whopping two.

Devin Brown will have a chance to showcase his stuff on Friday for the Buckeyes against Missouri (who we are all rooting for here because of unicorn Cody Schrader).

Howard is a "high floor" player who hopefully would not run both Brown and current freshman Lincoln Kienholz out of town in Columbus. This would assure white starting QBs for two big-name schools, presumably for the next two years. In a perfect world, Will Howard would go supplant one of the many quotas of the current year, but I'm sure there's already a growing list of programs who give white QBs the Bobby Bowden treatment (laugh in their faces).
