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.

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.

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.

Three West Virginia players taking grad transfers

As spring practices start up, rosters are coming out, which means more grad transfers are springing up.

Today, we learned of three graduate transfers from West Virginia.

Chris Chugunov, a quarterback, will have two years of eligibility remaining once he enrolls at his new school this summer. Chugunov started the Mountaineers' last two games last season, but is unlikely to get a crack at the full time starting job this fall.

Jaleel Fields, a defensive lineman, will have at least one year of eligibility remaining. He appeared in 12 games a role player in 2017 and suffered an injury that cost him the full 2016 season, which could potentially mean he would get a second year of eligibility under the right circumstances.

Ricky Rogers, a wide receiver, will also have one year of college football left. He hasn't seen much time over his career, and is sure to be looking for more playing time at his next stop.

 

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.
