College football grad transfers already coming in

A rule change this off-season means guys can redshirt, even after playing 3 or 4 games. The rule is meant for younger players, but we’re starting to see older players taking advantage. We’re seeing players who have found their roles diminished and are deciding to sit out the rest of the season, finishing their degrees, and having eligibility to graduate transfer elsewhere next season.

Here’s the list of players who have thus far made the decision to find a new opportunity next season:

Jalen Harris, Tight End, Auburn

Jalen McCleskey, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma State

Jonathan Nance, Wide Receiver, Arkansas

Remus Bulmer, Running Back, Sam Houston St

Stay tuned - there’s certainly going to be more additions before the regular season is over.

Getting caught up on football

A couple of committed grad transfers have been added to the college football list.

Bailey Granier, an offensive lineman, is taking a graduate transfer from Vanderbilt to Central Florida. He's the rare de-commit, having previously been a committed as a grad transfer to Tulane.

Keenan Sweeney, a running back / tight end, will take a grad transfer from Auburn to Notre Dame.

SEC Offensive Linemen on the move

Casey Dunn, a two-time All-American from FCS power Jacksonville State, is taking a graduate transfer to Auburn. Dunn has 27 career starts at center. He's expected to provide depth on the offensive line for the Tigers. Dunn will enroll at Auburn this summer.

Meanwhile, LSU's Andy Dodd, a second string Center, is seeking a graduate transfer for his fifth year next season. Dodd has one career start, and he will get his degree in May.
