Transfer Portal

Post

R-Fr. WR Eyin Cole is in the portal…the three of us that attended fall camp daily in 2019 will remember how great he looked with the ones. If not for injury, there really was a good chance that he would have played a sizable amount as a true freshman that year if they needed him.†

Rooting for him!!

Cole is a player who could have had a chance to make huge strides if he did not opt-out this season.

Any player had the right to opt-out, but where do these guys expect to play after not playing a down in 2 years?


Fun fact, there is only one receiver Lane Kiffin Recruited on FAU's roster in Jordan Merrell.

This is the same amount of receivers on the roster that was recruited by Charlie Partridge in John Mitchell.

Was speaking to someone the other day and told them would be very surprised if he returned, and that he seemed a very likely candidate to transfer or just leave.

The injury and being away so long from conditioning and the team environment will be a challenge, but best wishes to him.

Unless the NCAA changes course on scholarship limits there will be alot of kids who have played their last down of football. The portal is just growing each day. I saw Dana Holgersonís son entered the portal from Houston where his dad is coaching. †Not sure where he can go and play.

The portal helps schools like FAU find to add more talent to the roster, but it is causing tons of unintended consequences.

Every player a school takes from the portal is one less player from high school who gets an opportunity.

I have talked to dozens of high school coaches in the past couple of months, who express frustration that when they call their college coaching contacts to tell them about players they have, they are getting a lot of "we are holding spots for transfers.'

FAU is currently doing the same with their current class.

I guess it is frustrating when an offer is pulled . But for every transfer, that should make an opening somewhere else. Can't blame a head coach for filling a need with a proven commodity

Dylan Mcaffery just entered the transfer portal. Would love to get him. Iím sure heíll have a lot of opportunities with bigger suitors but who knows. I would have liked to have gotten Perry too before he decided to return to Miami.

It doesn't open a spot.

With the 25 man cap, it doesn't matter if your school has 5 scholarship players; you can only add 25 a year.

Look at the Reggie Davis situation with FAU; Johnny Ford transfers from a place he is on a scholarship to FAU, where he is counted as part of the class.

Davis is basically replaced in the class.

By transferring, Ford took the place of high school player without opening a spot at USF.
