The most recent grad transfers

We’re almost done with October, and we’ve seen a couple more college football players eligible for graduate transfer.

Manny Bowen, a reserve linebacker, is leaving the Penn State squad to preserve his last year of eligibility. He will finish his degree, graduate in December, and be eligible for a new school in January.

D’Andre Plantin, a reserve offensive lineman, is done playing at Virginia Tech. He’ll be eligible for a graduate transfer in the spring.

Also, Justice Shelton-Mosley, a wide receiver, could be a graduate transfer from Harvard. There’s no indication that Shelton-Mosley is looking for a grad transfer, but he’s not eligible to return to the Crimson because of Ivy League injury rules.

A few more grad transfers to be

Catching up on football grad transfers

We've added two players to the Committed Transfers list on the college football side.

Dominique Heath, formerly of Kansas State, is taking his graduate transfer to Appalachian State. As a North Carolina native, he's now closer to home. A wide receiver, Heath put up nearly a thousand yards receiving in his career, plus had success returning kicks. He has one year of eligibility left.

T.J. Roundtree, an offensive lineman, is taking his grad transfer from Louisville and heading to Colorado State. He appeared in 18 games over two years for the Cardinals and will now have one season of eligibility as a Ram. This is the second graduate transfer CSU has picked up with week.

Greene taking grad transfer to Illinois

Jalen Greene, a wide receiver who has also seen time at quarterback, is leaving USC for Illinois. As a grad transfer, he has one year of eligibility remaining.

Greene announced his intention to transfer a couple of weeks ago, and has found a home with the rebuilding Illini. He was a role player for the Trojans, and carved a niche for himself as a secondary passer - he threw several touchdowns in career after lining up as a wide out.

In other news, offensive lineman Brinkley Jolly has left the team at Wyoming and intends to take his graduate transfer. Jolly made seven starts and appeared in 9 games during his career with the Cowboys. He'll have one year of college football left at his next school. 

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.

 

A few changes to the college football list

Dwayne Wallace, an offensive lineman from California-Berkeley who sat out the 2017 season, is no longer committed to Ole Miss. Wallace pledged to go to the Rebels a month ago as a graduate transfer, but according to reports, the coaching staff has decided to go in a different direction. Wallace is now back on the Potential Transfer list and is still eligible to play FBS football this fall.

Meanwhile, Dalvin Warmack, has decided to stay at Kansas State. The running back announced his intent to take a grad transfer last month, but has had a change of heart. He figures to be part of the running back rotation for the Wildcats this fall.

Another Kansas State grad transfer

A day after two role players announced their graduate transfers from Kansas State, a back up offensive lineman has followed suit. Breontae Matthews, who spent two years in Manhattan after two years in JUCO, is looking to play college football elsewhere for his final year of eligibility. Matthews didn't see much playing time with Kansas State and is likely looking for more playing time at his next destination.

 

NSD, Part 3 - Graduate Transfer Offensive Linemen commit

Marcus Applefield, a former starter on the Rutgers offensive line, is taking a grad transfer to Virginia. Applefield started ten games for the Scarlet Knights last season and had twenty five career appearances. He has one year of college football eligibility remaining and had previously announced his intention to transfer back in December.

Dwayne Wallace, formerly of Cal, is taking his graduate transfer to Ole Miss. Wallace played in twelve games in 2016, including nine as a starter. However, he left the Golden Bears before the 2017 season, leaving him with one year of eligibility in Mississippi.

Pitt gets grad transfer offensive lineman

Stefano Millin, formerly of Kent State, will play college football for Pittsburgh next season. Millin is a versatile offensive lineman, with career starts at both tackle spots and center within the past two seasons. He's also a long snapper.

Millin has one year of eligibility left. He was originally slated to take his graduate transfer to Cincinnati, but obviously had a change of heart along the way.

This is the second grad transfer Kent State has lost this winter, with kicker Shane Hynes heading to South Carolina.

Lineman heading to Miami

Venzell Boulware, an offensive lineman, will be taking a grad transfer from Tennessee to play college football at Miami (Fl). Boulware will graduate in the spring or summer of 2018, according to report, and will join the Hurricanes at some point before next season. As a redshirt sophomore, he'll have two years of eligibility remaining.

Boulware made three starts with the Volunteers over two years, but fell off the depth chart this season. He was recruited by Miami coach Mark Richt previously, so this seems like an obvious fit.

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.
