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.

Landon Stratton, a punter, is taking a graduate transfer from Murray State to Georgia. Stratton was originally on the "Other Grad Transfer" list, having previously pledged to Houston Baptist.

John Austin Cook, an offensive lineman, is taking his grad transfer from Central Arkansas to South Alabama. Cook was an All-American in FCS, and he's taking his last year of eligibility to match up against FBS competition.

Also, Tre Watson, a running back, announced his graduate transfer to Texas yesterday. He'll join the Longhorns after graduating from California.

Additionally, Demarcus Felton, a running back, plans to take a grad transfer from Texas Tech.

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.

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.

A pair of Kansas State grad transfers and other news

Dominique Heath, a wide receiver, has announced his intention to take a graduate transfer for his last year of eligibility. He posted 200 yards receiving last season, and leaves Kansas State with just under 1,000 yards for his career. He'll graduate in May.

Dalvin Warmick will also graduate in May and then play his final season of college football elsewhere. Warmick is a running back and averaged about 5 yards a carry in a backup role last season.

They join running back Winston Dimmel as Wildcats who have taken grad transfers this off-season.

Meanwhile, there may be mutual interest between Alabama and grad transfer quarterback Gardner Minshew. Minshew left East Carolina last month, and Alabama is looking for quarterback depth. Stay tuned.

Another Oregon-Mizzou grad transfer and more news

Alex Ofodile, a wide receiver, is leaving Oregon to play college football at Missouri. He'll graduate in June and take his grad transfer this summer, where he'll have two years left to play. Ofodile is an interesting case. He's following his college teammate, Khalil Oliver, to Missouri. But it gets more interesting. Ofodile is from Columbia, Missouri, and his father is Mizzou's wide receiver coach. Somethings are just meant to be.

Meanwhile, Dylan Klumph, a punter, is taking a graduate transfer to Arizona. He leaves California as one of the best punters in their history and fills in a position of immediate need for the Wildcats. He graduates in May and has one year of eligibility left.

Finally, Madre London, a running back, is taking a graduate transfer from Michigan State. Stuck behind other runners on the depth chart, London is looking for a new opportunity at a new school. He has one year of eligibility remaining and has run for 900 yards in four years for the Spartans.

Oliver commits and other notes

Khalil Oliver, formerly an Oregon defensive back, is taking a graduate transfer to Missouri. He appeared in 23 games for the Ducks and was a starter before his 2017 season was cut short because of injury. Oliver has one year of college football eligibility left, but a hardship waiver may get him a second year for the Tigers.

Also, note that former Clemson Tigers Shadell Bell and C.J. Fuller are on the Potential Transfers list. Bell, a tight end, had one career catch in twelve career games. He has two years of eligibility remaining after he takes his grad transfer. Fuller, a running back, was the starter for the 2017 season, but was soon passed on the depth chart. He has one year of eligibility left.

Gio Gentosi seeking grad transfer

Gentosi, a fullback from UCLA, is looking to take a graduate transfer for his last season of eligibility. We talked to Gio about his decision.

UCLA underwent a coaching change this off-season, and Gio told us the new offense being installed doesn't offer many opportunities for fullbacks. Gentosi can also play tight end, but he would to prefer play out of the backfield.

Gio is graduating in the spring and is hoping to to pursue a Master's Degree in business. He's open to playing college football pretty much anywhere in the U.S.

Get a look of Gio's tape here, and feel free to contact us below for more information.

Joly and Johnson looking to take graduate transfers

Marcel Joly, a depth running back at Iowa, is taking a grad transfer for the 2018 season. Joly made a couple of appearances in 2015, but hasn't been able to climb the depth chart since. Also, his 2017 was cut short due to injury.  He has one year of eligibility remaining to reboot his college football career.

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.

McMillian taking grad transfer to Colorado

One of the first names on the board, Travon McMillian, is taking a grad transfer to Colorado. McMillian was a solid role player for Virginia Tech, rushing for 2,152 yards in his career. But his production has waned with the new coaching staff, and he's looking for a new opportunity with the Buffaloes. It's an interesting fit - Colorado's running back job is wide open, and it seems like McMillian has every chance to win the starting job.

Three new names on the potential grad transfer list

A busy Friday of grad transfer to get you caught up on.

Raelon Singleton, one of Utah's top wide receivers last season, is taking a grad transfer to be closer to family. It's not guaranteed he'll play college football elsewhere next season, but he graduates in May and has a year of eligibility left, so there's still time to see how this plays out.

Tre Watson, a running back, is leaving Cal after an injury-shortened 2017 campaign.  However, he posted 700 yards during the 2016 season, so he's bound to help someone on the football field next fall. He'll graduate in the spring and have a year of eligibility left. Don't confuse this Tre Watson with the Tre Watson who already took a grad transfer from Illinois to Maryland this off-season.

Cole Hedlund, a kicker, is taking a grad transfer from Arkansas after a frustrating career. He was a highly touted kicker before he got on campus, but never lived up to the hype and lost his starting job twice. He'll get a chance to start over as elsewhere after he graduates in the spring.

 

Hilliman makes move to Rutgers official

It likely comes as no surprise, but Jonathan Hilliman is officially moving from Boston College to Rutgers as a graduate transfer. Hilliman is from nearby Plainfield, New Jersey and was a Rutgers commit at one time. He visited over the weekend, and this has seemed like a foregone conclusion since the news came out. He'll enroll at Rutgers next week.

BC's Hilliman a potential Grad Transfer

John Hilliman presents an interesting case. The redshirt junior is looking to play his college football elsewhere - maybe. He hasn't announced his intention to be a grad transfer. However, he's looking around. The running back originally committed to Rutgers - and he's taking a visit there. And he's a New Jersey native. And he's already graduated. Stay tuned.
