Top Ten Transfer Running Backs Still Available



Despite many star transfer running backs already announcing their commitments, including Marcus Carroll to Missouri, Chip Trayanum to Kentucky and many more, there is still loads of backfield talent up for grabs. Below is our top ten available running backs according to TPR’s fantasy point system based on career points.

  • Jo’Quavious Marks, Mississippi State: 547.00 FPTS

The top running back that remains uncommitted, Marks has been a stud in his four seasons at MSU. The senior transfer has combined for over 1,000 yards on the ground as well as 13 scores the last two seasons.

  • Nate Noel, Appalachian State: 458.70 FPTS

Noel started the season for the Mountaineers on a tear, ripping off five straight games of over 100 yards on the ground. Although injuries affected his production for the remainder of 2023, the unranked recruit out of high school will be an incredible get for whichever team lands him.
