Just a week after the transfer portal opened, big name players have announced commitments to their new teams. Here are my top ten biggest transfer moves so far.
Dillon Gabriel QB, Oregon
The Ducks landed the top player in the portal according to TPR’s fantasy point system. Gabriel has an incredible 1,264.28 FPTS which doubles the player in second. His five years between UCF and Oklahoma should make for a seamless transition from Bo Nix to Gabriel.
Max Johnson, North Carolina
A former four-recruit, Johnson will play for his third team when he takes the field with the Tar Heels after stints at LSU and Texas A&M. Expect the lefty gunslinger to have a great first season under new head coach Mack Brown.
Marcus Carroll, Missouri
Mizzou landed the top running back in TPR’s rankings Monday morning. The former Georgia State star rushed for 1,350 yards and 13 touchdowns in his final season with the Panthers.
Tyler Shough, Louisville
A very experienced Shough heads to Louisville looking to follow in the footsteps of fellow transfer QB and 2023 Cardinals QB, Jack Plummer. Shough is far more mobile than Plummer and uses his 6-5 230-pound frame effectively in space.
Robert Lewis, Auburn
Another major loss for Georgia State, Lewis will be joining Hugh Freeze and the Tigers on the plains for the 2024 season. The Georgia native hauled in 70 passes for 877 yards and seven touchdowns, including a 97-yard score in a win over Charlotte.
Jordan Clark, Notre Dame
The first defensive player on the list, Clark will finish his college career in South Bend with the Fighting Irish after five seasons in Tempe. The senior DB had 30 tackles and 9 pass defenses for ASU last season.
Jalin Conyers, Texas Tech
A second departure for the Sun Devils, Conyers will be a force to be reckoned with in the Big-12 next season. The 6-4 270 tight end is tough to bring down in space and displays great athleticism.
Max Brosmer, Minnesota
Brosmer was brilliant in his final two seasons as the starter at New Hampshire. He threw for 6,613 yards and 56 touchdowns with just 14 interceptions in those two years combined. Brosmer will look to right the ship for a Golden Gophers offense that has consistently struggled as of late.
Chris Tyree, Virginia
Looking to help fill the massive hole that fellow transfer Malik Washington left following his 1,426 yard and nine touchdown season, Tyree committed to the Hoos. The senior finished 2023 with 484 yards and three touchdowns through the air for the Fighting Irish.
Blake Shapen, Mississippi State
Despite being solid in his eight starts with the bears last season, Shapen and Baylor were just 2-6 in those games. The junior signal caller looks to provide a smooth transition from Will Rogers for new head coach Jeff Lebby.
