College football spring transfer tracker

During the winter, many big names entered the college football transfer portal and changed schools. After coach Lincoln Riley went from Oklahoma to USC, quarterbacks Jaxson Dart (Ole Miss) and Kedon Slovis (Pitt) transferred out, while Caleb Williams joined Riley out West.

Bo Nix left Auburn to go to Oregon, while Quinn Ewers transferred from Ohio State to Texas. Running back Jahmyr Gibbs left Georgia Tech to go to Alabama, while wide receiver Jadon Haselwood transferred to Arkansas from Oklahoma. On the defensive side, linebacker Mohamoud Diabate transferred from Florida to Utah, and Notre Dame added safety Brandon Joseph from Northwestern.

In total, more than 2,500 FBS players entered the transfer portal over the past year, creating a combination of roster chaos and free agency in college football.

Following both the early and late signing periods, as well as the spring ball, there has been a second wave of transfers. May 1 is the final day players can enter the portal.

We rank the best available players either still in the portal or who made their decisions during the spring period and go position by position to break down the most impactful transfers.
