Plenty of football transfer activity

As the semester draws to a close and post-spring depth charts come out, we're seeing a spike in college football grad transfers.

Nick Harvey is now on the committed graduate transfer list. He's a defensive back and is leaving Texas A&M for South Carolina.

New to the Other Grad Transfers list is Matt Shiel, a punter who is taking a grad transfer to Mercer. He's a particularly interesting graduate transfer because he started his career at Mercer, transferred home to Australia, and is coming back for grad school where he started. This counts as a grad transfer because his eligibility clock started during his first stint on campus.

Three other players announced their intent to take grad transfers today:

Jalen Williams, Linebacker, Pittsburgh

Dennis Edwards, Offensive Lineman, Western Kentucky

Andrew Mike, Offensive Lineman, Florida
