Farrell: Listing Each ACC’s Biggest 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 ACC.
Boston College — WR CJ Lewis
Losing Lewis isn’t a big blow and BC did well overall when it comes to roster losses although he could do well at Bowling Green.
Clemson — WR Frank Ladson
Ladson never lived up to his potential at Clemson but that potential is still scary and he head to an ACC team in Miami.
Duke — DL Gary Smith
Losing big and athletic bodies is always tough on a roster as he heads across country to UCLA and will leave a gap.
Florida State — DE Quashon Fuller
He was situation at FSU but he provided depth and made some plays and his upside has always been excellent. He will help Maryland right away.
Georgia Tech — RB Jahmyr Gibbs
This isn’t close. He was arguably the best player on the team and now he’s headed to Alabama.
Louisville — WR Tyrell Harrell
Alabama strikes the ACC again as Harrell was a deep threat that scares everyone.
Miami — DT Nesta Jade Silvera
What did I say about big men above? Miami loaded up on the DL in the portal but this guy will be good at Arizona State.
NC State — DL Terrell Dawkins
The Gamecocks are getting an active kid with upside and the way NC State develops linemen, watch him flourish in the SEC.
North Carolina — LB Tyrone Hopper
I like his upside more than many and I think he can be very good at Missouri. Any defensive losses hurt UNC.
Pittsburgh — WR Jordan Addison
Do I even need to explain why this sucks for Pitt? He’s going to dominate at USC.
Syracuse — WR Taj Harris
Similar to Georgia Tech, Syracuse might have lost their best player as he heads to Rutgers.
Virginia — OL Victor Oluwatimi
Centers are hard to come by. All American centers even harder and their loss is Michigan’s gain.
Virginia Tech — WR Tayvion Robinson
He’s their best wide receiver and will flourish at Kentucky while this offense tries to rebuild.
Wake Forest — RB Christian Beal-Smith
Another tough running back loss? This isn’t Kenneth Walker II but he has a chance to be good at South Carolina.
