Landon and Griffin Commit

More updates to the committed transfer list.

Marcus Griffin, a defensive lineman, is taking his graduate transfer from Arizona to Central Michigan. Griffin failed to make the line rotation during his three years with the Wildcats, appearing in just 11 games. But he was a highly touted prospect coming out of high school, and a change of scenery may spark a big year. He will have one season of eligibility with the Chippewas.

Madre London, a running back, will be a grad transfer to Tennessee. He was a role player at Michigan State, racking up nearly a thousand yards and eight touchdowns in his career. London figures to be a good fit for Tennessee's new pro-style offense, and he'll have one season of eligibility to make an impact. This is the third graduate transfer the Vols have landed this month.

Trio of Rice grad transfers commit

Getting caught up on this weekend's news...

Calvin Anderson, perhaps the most hyped graduate transfer we've ever seen, has committed to play for Texas. Anderson was a three year starter for the Owls, and he was highly touted as one of the few highlights of Rice's offense last season. He figures to fit right away into the Longhorns' offensive line. He has one year of eligibility remaining.

JT Ibe, a defensive back, will be playing college football at South Carolina next season. Ibe was a three year starter for the Owls and was consistently among the team leader in tackles. He provides immediate experience to a young Gamecocks secondary. He has on year of eligibility remaining.

Preston Gordon, a defensive lineman, will take his grad transfer to Texas Tech. Gordon was a three year starter for Owls, and he figures to step in immediately to the Red Raiders' defensive line rotation. He also has one year of eligibility remaining.

 

Kansas State picks up grad transfer

Jordan Mittie, a defensive lineman, is leaving Texas State for the Wildcats. He was a key member of the Bobcats' line, recording 80 tackles and 4 sacks over the past two seasons. Mittie is graduating in May, and he'll then take his graduate transfer to Kansas State. He'll have two years of eligibility left to play college football.

Also, it's worth noting that Mittie's father is the head coach of K-State's women's basketball team.

Three West Virginia players taking grad transfers

As spring practices start up, rosters are coming out, which means more grad transfers are springing up.

Today, we learned of three graduate transfers from West Virginia.

Chris Chugunov, a quarterback, will have two years of eligibility remaining once he enrolls at his new school this summer. Chugunov started the Mountaineers' last two games last season, but is unlikely to get a crack at the full time starting job this fall.

Jaleel Fields, a defensive lineman, will have at least one year of eligibility remaining. He appeared in 12 games a role player in 2017 and suffered an injury that cost him the full 2016 season, which could potentially mean he would get a second year of eligibility under the right circumstances.

Ricky Rogers, a wide receiver, will also have one year of college football left. He hasn't seen much time over his career, and is sure to be looking for more playing time at his next stop.

 

Big Ten transfers announce grad schools

Grad transfers from Ohio State and Michigan have announced where they will be playing college football next season.

Central Michigan lands grad transfer defensive lineman

Sean Adesanya, a defensive lineman, is heading to the Chippewas after taking a graduate transfer from Illinois. He'll head up to Mount Pleasant this summer. His career for the Illini was limited by injury, allowing him only 7 appearances over three seasons. But Central Michigan needs line depth, and Adesanya is an intriguing prospect. He's guaranteed one more year of college football, and could get an injury waiver for a second year of eligibility.

Taua joining brothers at Nevada

Ainuu Taua, a defensive lineman from UCLA, is taking a graduate transfer to play his final season of college football at Nevada. This is a pretty cool story - Ainuu's younger brother Toa will be joining the Wolfpack for the 2018 season as well, while their older brother is on the coaching staff. Taua is coming off a knee injury, but should be ready to go once he joins Nevada in the summer. He graduates from UCLA in June.

Meanwhile, Sterling Johnson, a rotation defensive lineman at Clemson, is also looking to take a graduate transfer. Johnson appeared in  eleven games for the Tigers this season, recording 14 tackles and two sacks in 2017. He was a high school All-American, so the talent is there. And Johnson still has time to make an impact - he's got two years of eligiblity remaining.

Updates to the Grad Transfer Lists

Garrald McDowell, a three year reserve for Ole Miss, will play college football for UL-Lafayette in 2018. This graduate transfer went under the radar - his transfer went unreported until he arrived on campus. It seems likely he'll compete for playing time on the defensive this fall. He'll have a year of eligibility left.

Meanwhile, Khalil Oliver, a defensive back from Oregon, visited Missouri for a potential grad transfer over the weekend. He was the starter for the Ducks' first game of the year, but was soon injured. Oliver graduated in December and will have at least one year of eligibility left - he hopes to get a second year back because of the 2017 injury.

Finally, Dylan Thompson, a reserve defensive lineman, is taking a graduate transfer from Ohio State. Thompson's career has been marred by injury and academic issues, and he was able to play his first game for the Buckeyes until 2017. He has one year of eligibility remaining.

Updating the grad transfer market

It was a pretty quiet weekend in terms of new names for the potential and committed graduate transfer lists. All of the attention seems to be focused on Calvin Anderson, the Rice offensive lineman who is being courted by  blue chippers such as Texas, Michigan, and Auburn. There's plenty of other visits happening too, as teams look to make grad transfers part of their recruiting classes.

In terms of new entries, look no further than Austin Jones making his grad transfer to Alabama official. Jones, a kicker, visited the Tide over the weekend. He'll be a walk on, but is expected to compete for the starting job. Jones started for two years at Temple for a knee injury derailed his college football career.

Meanwhile, Clemson defensive lineman Jabril Robinson has announced his intention to explore the grad transfer market. Robinson played in 11 games for the Tigers in 2017, seeing about 20 snaps per game. He graduated in December. With stiff competition in front of him on the depth chart, it's likely Robinson is looking for more time on the football field somewhere else.

Tiassum taking grad transfer - in 2019

Brandon Tiassum, a defensive lineman formerly of the Notre Dame football team, is presenting an interesting scenario. He was dismissed from the team last week, but will not graduate from Notre Dame until December 2018. But his college football career isn't over, and he will move on as a graduate transfer after he gets his degree. File this one away for next winter.
