It’s not always quarterbacks that make the most impact in the transfer portal as teams like Alabama, Georgia, Cincinnati and others can attest. Here are the most impactful non-QBs for each school continuing with the ACC.
Boston College — TE George Takacs
BC is a tight end friendly offense so the former Notre Dame pass catcher will play a key role and he can block as well.
Clemson — None
QB Hunter Johnson is the only transfer for the Tigers as Dabo Swinney continues to dig his heels in.
Duke — S Darius Joiner
The Western Illinois transfer should plug and play right away and he’s shown range and the ability to hit.
Florida State — DE Jared Verse
The Albany star could be the next Jermaine Johnson for FSU, he’s that athletic and elite as a pass rusher.
Georgia Tech — RB Dylan McDuffie
The transfer from Buffalo will be a huge help in trying to replace Jahmyr Gibbs and McDuffie could be a big surprise in the ACC.
Louisville — DT Jermayne Lole
There are skill position players you might be more familiar with but the Arizona State interior lineman is going to make a huge difference on defense.
Miami — DL Akheem Mesidor
Miami landed a ton of help on defense but the biggest impact should come from the West Virginia pass rusher and disruptor.
NC State — WR Darryl Jones
Jones is a big target for Devin Leary from Maryland and coming off a big bowl game with two touchdowns. He adds to a dangerous passing attack.
North Carolina — DL Jacolbe Cowan
The Ohio State lineman heads back home to North Carolina and will provide inside help and depth.
Pitt — WR Konata Mumpfield
Mumpfield will help replace Jordan Addison in the offense as he was the lead man for the Akron Zips last season and very productive.
Syracuse — WR D’Marcus Adams
The FAU transfer is a speedster and can stretch the field for the Orange if he can put it all together at his third and likely final stop.
Virginia — RB Cody Brown
The Miami transfer was a big name out of high school and has a high ceiling. He leaves a crowded running back room to UVA where he can excel.
Virginia Tech — WR Jadan Blue
Blue is far removed from his 1,000-yard 2019 season at Temple but the electric WR has something to prove and is a great fit here.
Wake Forest — DL Kobie Turner
The stout defensive tackle can also chase and comes from Richmond where he was an FCS All American.
