Getting caught up on college football news

Quite a few grad transfers to note in college football this week.

Georgia Tech added two FCS graduate transfers this week. Malik Rivera, a defensive back, will grad transfer in from Wofford. Zach Roberts, a long snapper, is taking his grad transfer from Lamar. We always love seeing FCS guys getting a chance at a big time school thanks to the graduate transfer rule!

Will Gragg, a tight end, will grad transfer from Arkansas to Pitt. He has two years of college football remaining.

Andrew Mike, an offensive lineman, will take graduate transfer from Florida to Rice.

Nick Watkins, a defensive back, is heading to Houston, having taken his grad transfer from Notre Dame.

Brinkley Jolly, an offensive lineman, is taking his graduate transfer from Wyoming to SMU.

A busy Monday for football

A bit of activity for college football as spring practices start to wind up.

Two grad transfer commits today:

V.J. Banks, DB, Rice to Colorado State. Banks is the fourth Rice player to commit elsewhere as a grad transfer this spring.

Seth Collins, WR, Oregon State to Texas Tech.

One potential grad transfer:

Abraham Wallace, DB, Texas Tech. This one is a bit murky, as Wallace already took a grad transfer to get to Texas Tech. But if he's completed an advanced degree, it seems reasonable that he's eligible again.

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.

 

No new names, but plenty of activity

Spring practices for college football are coming up, so there's a bit of a down time for players deciding to move on as graduate transfers.

But there's plenty of visits and rumors around.

That's especially true for former Rice players. If you follow grad transfers as closely as we do, you've probably heard of Calvin Anderson, the offensive lineman who everyone seems to want. He's visited many of the big names, and will choose between Oklahoma, Texas, Auburn, and Michigan quite soon.

Former Rice defensive back J.T. Ibe has visited Indiana, Iowa State, and South Carolina. Meanwhile, former Owls defensive lineman Preston Gordon is hearing from Alabama, Syracuse, Texas Tech ,and Kansas.

They're just a few of the many guys who are looking for their graduate transfer destination, and we'll add them to the list as soon as we hear more.

NSD News, Part 1 - A busy day at Vanderbilt

Three grad transfers connected to the Commodores today, including two of the Ivy League's best.

Louis Vecchio is taking a graduate transfer to Vandy from Penn. He was a two-time All-Ivy League performer on the defensive line and is getting a degree from their prestigious business school this spring. He has one year of eligibility remaining.

Meanwhile, All-Ivy League punter Parker Thome is moving to Vanderbilt as a grad transfer from Columbia.  Thome will likely fill a huge need on special teams for the 2018 season. He will also have one year of eligibility.

Finally, Shawn Stankavage is leaving Vanderbilt to play college football at Rice. Stankavage will have a year to play for Rice, which has a new coaching staff. He only completed one pass in his career for the Commodores, which was plagued by injuries. 

New names on the grad transfer list

A random mix of players on potential transfer board this evening.

Ricky DeBerry, who saw time at linebacker and H-back for Oklahoma, will take a graduate transfer after he graduates in May. DeBerry only had six career appearances for Oklahoma, including one start, all during the 2016. He red-shirted in 2015 and health issues in 2017 prevented him from taking the field. He has two years of college football left wherever he ends up.

V.J. Banks, a defensive back, will grad transfer away from Rice for his last season of eligibility. Banks was an important member of the secondary for three seasons, but an injury cut short his senior year. He's been given an extra year, and he's looking to play elsewhere his final year. This is Rice's third grad transfer of the winter.

And J.J. Cosentino, a quarterback from Florida State, is no longer on the Seminole roster. He never really made an impact on the depth chart, and he already has his degree. While it's unclear if he intends to take a graduate transfer, he's eligible to do so. So you never know.

Rice Tackle to take graduate transfer

Rice offensive lineman Calvin Anderson is taking a grad transfer and intends to play college football elsewhere next year. Anderson has been a stud for Rice, starting at the critical left tackle spot in 2017 and a three year starter overall. Rice is in the midst of an upheaval, having fired long-tenured David Bailiff last month. Anderson seems to be moving on to be avoiding a rebuilding year. He will graduate this May.
