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 concluding with the Big 12.
Baylor — DT Jaxon Player
The Tulsa tackle was coveted by so many in the portal that this was a massive win for Dave Aranda. He’s a run stuffer but can chase as well.
Iowa State –WR Dmitri Stanley
When healthy the Colorado receiver and special teams standout is dangerous. He’s looking to get back to 2020 form where he led the Buffs.
Kansas — DE Lonnie Phelps
The MAC pass rusher has the ability to lead the Jayhawks in sacks and pressure immediately. He was a stud at Miami (Ohio).
Kansas State — CB Joshua Hayes
An underrated acquisition from Virginia he played under Chris Kleiman at North Dakota State and did well there.
Oklahoma — OT Tyler Guyton
He may not make an immediate impact and is known more for his big boy touchdowns as an H-Back at TCU but this kid will be very good down the line.
Oklahoma State — DL Solomon Wright
Wright was a key get from Arkansas as a coveted big body in the portal who can get after the passer. The legacy recruit returns to the Cowboys where his dad Kendall was a standout.
TCU — LB Terrence Cooks
Cooks was a big time talent out of high school and left Texas in pursuit of more playing time. He will see it at TCU.
Texas — WR Isaiah Neyor
The Wyoming star put up monster numbers and will be a great No. 2 to Xavier Worthy.
Texas Tech — OT Cole Spencer
The Western Kentucky star could be the best OL on the Tech team already.
West Virginia— DL Michael Lockhart
The Georgia Tech transfer has the ability to help make up for some key losses on the defensive line with his play against the run.
