FCS players move to FBS and other transfer news

A couple of new commits to report in the college football world.

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.

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 couple of potential grad transfers

Garrett Grey, a wide receiver turned tight end, is leaving Texas. He spent two years contributing on special teams before getting a starting role as a tight end this past season. That only lasted two games, before an injury ended his season. Grey has a year of college football eligibility remaining. It appears he won't be a graduate transfer - he's expressed a desire start working, but you never know.

Meanwhile, Jerad Washington, a backup wide receiver for South Carolina, is transferring. It appears he can graduate this spring, which qualifies him for the list. Stay tuned to see if he takes a graduate transfer for the 2018 season.
