Farrell: These QBs Can Change the CFP Landscape in 2022-23 Season
The transfer portal has become a huge part of college football as players like Joe Burrow and Justin Fields changed the landscape of the race for the national title. What quarterbacks could change that race this season and why?
1. Caleb Williams, USC
The obvious choice, Williams not only has a chance to push a talented USC team towards a Pac-12 title but he could also ruin Utah’s chances with a huge game in October and he also plays Notre Dame to end the season.
2. Spencer Rattler, South Carolina
The Gamecocks won’t be title contenders but Rattler plays UGA at home in September and Clemson at the end of the season and he could help knock either out with an upset.
3. Jaxson Dart, Ole Miss
He hasn’t won the job yet but if he does I can’t think of a team that can scare Alabama more in the SEC West.
4. Cameron Ward, Washington State
Wazzu won’t be title contenders but this dynamic talent gets a chance to beat Oregon in September and Utah in October.
5. Dillon Gabriel, Oklahoma
OU is the favorite to win the Big 12 every season and Gabriel could be the next transfer quarterback to lead the Sooners to the playoff .
6. Max Johnson, Texas A&M
He hasn’t won the job but the Aggies have so much roster talent that if he does they have to be considered a danger to Alabama once again right?
7. Jayden Daniels, LSU
He and Myles Brennan will battle it out for the starting job and LSU is far from being a title contender but the Tigers play Alabama at home and that’s always a great game.
8. Quinn Ewers, Texas
The hype is there, the schedule has Alabama and Oklahoma on it and he has a chance to make some serious changes to the landscape early.
9. Adrian Martinez, Kansas State
He failed at Nebraska but this Kansas State team is sneaky good. A run at the Big 12 title is expected.
10. Casey Thompson, Nebraska
A 3-9 team won’t contend for a playoff spot but they could knock out Oklahoma early or Michigan, Wisconsin or Iowa late.
