College Football’s Winter Transfer Portal Window is Officially Open!
The NCAA’s 30-day winter transfer portal window has been declared open, and players now have until Jan. 2, 2024 to enter the portal for a one-time transfer. This doesn’t necessarily mean they have to settle on a new school by this date, and there’s also the possibility of returning to their previous schools. However, the decision of being in the portal must be made within the given 30-day period.
Last December, we saw over 2,100 NCAA football players make their way to the transfer portal, marking the highest participation in a month since the creation of the portal in fall 2018. This year, several players have already declared their intentions to join the portal early due to various reasons, including their coach’s exit or early graduation. Some of the notable quarterbacks already in the portal include Washington State’s Cam Ward, Duke’s Riley Leonard, Oregon State’s DJ Uiagalelei, and UCLA’s Dante Moore.
Departing offensive lineman Christian Lichtenhan from Colorado, standout quarterback Cam Ward from Washington State, and energizing quarterback Pyne from Arizona State are just a few examples of players already in the portal, with many more expected to follow suit.
For the latest updates on players entering and exiting the portal and how it could potentially shape the 2024 season, make sure to check out the rankings, news, and forecasts provided!
