NCAA Football transfer portal list has 2,679 players in 2023 with Travis Hunter and DJ Uiagalelei. Already 1,429 have committed to their new teams.

The winter and spring cycle allowed student-athletes to find new college for football. The eligible years left with players and the team change can be something worthy of making them a sought-out name among the scouts.

College programs are always at the edge of their seat to attain the best prospects available anywhere in the nation. It helps them create a formidable group to challenge for the national championship.

Getting a five-star recruit in the transfer cycle can make the hope and dream a reality.

Texas Longhorns got the five-star Wide Receiver Adonai Mitchell on 19th January. The addition of Johntay Cook II and DeAndre Moore Jr. lands them a no.9 spot for the future offense on ESPN ranking.

Likewise, many other college programs can go for available sportspersons and land them a shot at the championship.

Here are the top 5 teams so far based on their transactions in the transfer market:

  1. Colorado Buffaloes
  2. USC Trojans
  3. LSU Tigers
  4. Florida State Seminoles
  5. Oklahoma Sooners

Colorado and LSU got themselves a potential future star in the form of five-star recruits Travis Hunter and Denver Harris.

Apart from Hunter, several four-star talents like Shedeur Sanders, Alton McCaskill, Demouy Kennedy, Jimmy Horn, etc., joined the Buffaloes.

Likewise, the Trojans strengthened their backline with BEar Alexander, Anthony Lucas, Jack Sullivan, and Mason Cobb. The addition of MarShawn Lloyd and Dorian Singer makes them a strong contender in the Pac-12 conference.

LSU got Zy Alexander, KJ Johnson, Duce Chestnut, Paris Shand, Omar Speights, and Jordan Jefferson, solidifying their defense.

Getting Fentreel Cypress was a significant move for the Seminoles. Jaheim Bell at the Tight End position will be one to watch this season. The offense and defense look impressive for them to prove themselves as the challengers for the conference title.

The defensive line, including Dasan McCullough and Trace Ford, impose a significant threat in Big-12 by the Sooners. Wide Receivers Brenen Thompson and Andrel Anthony can trouble the wide route for the opponents.
