Farrell: Each Big Ten Team’s Most Impactful Transfer (Non-QB)



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 Big Ten.

Illinois — DT Raashaan Wilkins

The 300-pounder was a 3 star out of high school and heads home from Vanderbilt where he should be able to help the Illini stop the run.

Indiana — ATH Shaun Shivers

He may be little but he has blazing speed and the Auburn transfer will add to the running game and be tough to handle in space as a receiver.

Iowa — TE Steve Stilianos

He’s the only transfer for Iowa and it makes sense he’s a tight end as they have done an amazing job developing the position. The Lafayette standout should impact immediately and provide depth.

Maryland — DE Quashon Fuller

Many would say WR Jacob Copeland for the Florida Gators but Fuller is a much needed big body on defense and was heavily recruited before he chose Florida State out of high school.

Michigan — OL Victor Oluwatimi

It’s not every day you get an All American caliber center from a Power Five program like Virginia in the portal.

Michigan State — DE Khris Bogle

Ok this could be RB Erik Broussard or RB Jalen Berger, but elite SEC pass rushers like Bogle are hard to find. He showed what he can do at Florida and should be dominant.

Nebraska — DE Ochaun Mathis

The TCU transfer immediately changes the pass rush for Nebraska and could work himself into the round one mix.

Northwestern — DL Ryan Johnson

Big men are hard to find in the portal and Johnson comes from Stanford with a high ceiling.

Ohio State — CB Tanner McAlister

He comes over from Oklahoma State with new defensive coordinator Jim Knowles and he will step in immediately as a key starter.

Penn State — WR Mitchell Tinsley

This is a tough one as PSU has a few big impact guys but the Western Kentucky star could light up the Big Ten.

Purdue — CB Tee Denson

Defensive help is needed and the Washington State transfer has the skillset to help the secondary in a few different ways.

Rutgers — OL JD Direnzo

The Sacred Heart star had many Power Five options and he will immediately contribute and likely star on the offensive line.

Wisconsin — CB Jay Shaw

The UCLA transfer immediately brings experience and talent to a much needed area of the defense and should plug and play.
