The transfer portal is non-stop but it’s winding down for this cycle as we get closer to August 1st. Here are the top 5 offensive line gets in the portal rated by impact.
1. O’Cyrus Torrence, Florida
Torrence has been one of the top linemen in the country the last two seasons at Louisiana. He’s headed to Gainesville with his coach Billy Napier and fellow Louisiana OL Kamryn Waites and will be an immediate impact player. First-team All-American isn’t out of question for arguably the best guard in the country.
2. Victor Oluwatimi, Michigan
Michigan has only added two players via the portal, but the lone offensive lineman is a darn good one. Oluwatimi was a second-team All-American last year at Virginia, and he’ll slot into an offensive line that is losing its all-conference center from last year, Andrew Vastardis. A perfect fit.
3. Kingsley Suamataia, BYU
Even though he barely saw the field last season, Suamataia remains one of the best prospects in the nation. He was a five-star in 2021 and has the kind of frame and athleticism that scouts drool over. He heads closer to home leaving Oregon with the chance to be a future All-American.
4. McKade Mettauer, Oklahoma
A three-year starter for Cal, Mettauer should slot right into a starting guard spot for new coach Brent Venables. The Houston native ranked in the top 20 among all Power Five guards last season in pass blocking according to PFF, and is the definition of a plug-and-play guy.
5. J.D. DiRenzo, Rutgers
The two-time FCS All-American is going to be a sneaky pick for first-team All-Big Ten this season; he’s an absolute mauler at tackle. He fits in perfectly with Greg Schiano’s hard-nosed approach and has a ton of athleticism for a man his size. One of the best FCS pickups by any team in the country.
