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.

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.
