The transfer portal window finally closes this week so we can take a short breath and start to analyze what happened. I’ll start with my updated top 10 teams.
1. Florida State
To me this isn’t close based on quality. DB Fentrell Cypress and DL Braden Fiske cement this as the quality class of the cycle and FSU could make a run next season.
WR Aaron Anderson from Alabama and DB Denver Harris from Texas A&M have the potential to be great. And I mean great.
RB Marshawn Lloyd adds depth but WR Dorian Singer is the gem of this class and DL Anthony Lucas is the kind of trench player needed.
I love what Michigan is doing up front and if Jim Harbaugh stays this group plays to his strengths in a massive way.
5. Arizona State
Kenny Dillingham is getting after it with QB Drew Pyne the headliner and a much needed group of OL.
Hugh Freeze has been on fire lately with DT Justin Rogers from Kentucky the biggest fish. But OL Avery Jones from East Carolina might make the biggest impact.
Deion Sanders is revamping his roster and has a ton of talent in this large class led by Travis Hunter. 23 commitments keeps this class in my top 10 but many are reaches so we will see.
The Sooners class isn’t huge but the quality is amazing. Led by LB Dasan McCullough and DL Jacob Lacey we all know the defense needs work and it’s being addressed.
9. Oklahoma State
There aren’t a lot of guys you’d know in this class but trust me, it’s a good one. DE Anthony Goodlow and WR De’Zhaun Stribling are potentially elite but I am scratching my head at Alan Bowman at QB.
I like what the Vols are doing more than most and while WR Dont’e Thornton is an important addition, it’s the defensive additions that impress me.
