Farrell: Each SEC Team’s Biggest Transfer Portal Loss
The transfer portal giveth we know this. But it can sure taketh away as well. Let’s take a look at the biggest portal loss for each school continuing with the SEC.
Alabama — LB Drew Sanders
Sanders was a five-star talent out of high school and now takes his talents to Arkansas where he should plug in right away. Alabama never really misses players but he’s the most talented to leave.
Arkansas — CB Greg Brooks Jr.
He heads to LSU where he will help plug holes immediately and his experience will be missed as he was key for three seasons.
Auburn — WR Kobe Hudson
Hudson put up some nice numbers for an offense that struggled last year for Auburn so he’s a good get for UCF and will be missed.
Florida — DE Khris Bogle
There are quite a few to pick from here but I love Bogle’s upside as an elite pass rusher so he’s a tough loss to Kentucky.
Georgia — WR Jermaine Burton
UGA has talent at wide receiver but his experience will be hard to replace and he’s great when healthy. And losing him to Alabama isn’t fun.
Kentucky — OL RJ Adams
Nothing really bad overall for the Wildcats but Adams did provide depth and will be a nice addition for Georgia Tech.
LSU — CB Elias Ricks
To me this is a no brainer as Ricks has first round written all over him and he was lost to Alabama in division.
Mississippi State — WR Malik Heath
Losing anyone to Ole Miss isn’t fun for MSU and Heath has been very productive for two seasons.
Missouri — DT Mekhi Wingo
Elite interior defensive linemen are hard to find and Wingo had a great first season and looked like he would be a star. He’s off to LSU now.
Ole Miss — CB Keidron Smith
The Rebels can’t afford to lose defensive talent and Smith brings a ton of experience and tackling ability to Kentucky.
South Carolina — OL Jazston Turnetine
The Gamecocks didn’t lose much at all in the portal but the big OL has potential and was a great get for Florida State.
Tennessee — RB Tiyon Evans
I like this kid a lot as he’s a tough runner and will be a star at Louisville.
Texas A&M — TE Baylor Cupp
Despite his injury his first year his upside has always been great and Texas Tech landed a potential star.
Vanderbilt — OT Tyler Steen
Any player that can go to Alabama and start right away is a massive loss. And it’s doubled for Vanderbilt as they can’t afford this.
