He likes chargers more than McDonald’s 

I guess since trips to Waffle House are now out we have nothing to counter the new Chargers offered by uat.

I feel differently about grad transfers.  It's actually advised to get your grad degree from a different institution than your bachelor's. Expand your knowledge.

If it is for the degree, then I agree but there are several kids that are transferring time and time again.  Seems like they are transferring for lack of playing time.

Na. We don't really need any WRs plus NCM hasn't panned out so far in his career.

He hasn't. But anybody that scores a TD to open an Iron Bowl and then another to open an SEC championship game earned his letters at AU.

Maybe I just don't know where to look, but nowhere have I seen that Brooks is a grad transfer. He was initially in the class of 2019, which gives him a max of two years in college. If he's not a grad transfer, he won't be eligible next season without getting a waiver. With all the grad transfers out there, will AU really use a scholarship on a guy that will have to sit a year?

“Auburn can’t build a team with Vandy recruits!!!!”

You are assuming every Vandy recruit is not at a level that Auburn recruits at. I would agree for the majority but Vandy has produced some good players over the years. 500 yards in 6 games behind a Vandy O-Line indicates a solid player.

 He was being sarcastic and maybe taking a little poke at someone else.

Transfer Portal: This week's top commitments and notable entries

By CHRIS HUMMER 25 minutes ago

The transfer portal is now the centerpiece of the college football universe with the end of the 2020 season. Introduced midway through the 2018 campaign, the portal sees a number of significant entries each day. Transfer commitments fire off at a similar rate as teams fortify their rosters via proven commodities or higher-ceiling players than they’d normally be able to attract out of high school.

We’re up to 1,759 FBS players in the portal since Aug. 1, 2020, up from 1,719 a week ago. The portal has slowed some after averaging over 100 new entries a week since the end of the regular season, but several notable players still opted to explore their options recently.

Given all of the movement, 247Sports is dedicating a once-a-week piece to recap the biggest moves in the portal. We’ll note the most interesting new names and also hit on some of the key additions during the week.

THIS WEEK’S BIGGEST COMMITMENTS

Tyler Shough, QB, Texas Tech: The Red Raiders needed an infusion of experience and talent in their QB room, and Shough provides both for a program in transition. Shough started for Oregon this past season, throwing for 1,703 yards and 13 touchdowns against six interceptions while averaging 9.3 yards per attempt. He’s a major upgrade over Texas Tech’s incumbent, Henry Colombi, who averaged 6.4 yards per attempt in 2020. Brandon Marcello covered Shough’s move to Lubbock in-depth earlier this week.

Luke McCaffrey, QB, Louisville: The Cardinals are set at quarterback in the short term with Malik Cunningham, but McCaffrey provides a window in their potential future. McCaffrey, who threw for 530 yards in his two-year Nebraska career, is arguably the most dynamic athlete at quarterback to enter the portal this offseason. It’ll be interesting to see if McCaffrey sticks at quarterback long term – he could help at a lot of positions – but at worst he is talented depth in the Cardinals’ QB room.

Mark-Anthony Richards, RB, UCF: It wasn’t long after Auburn fired Gus Malzahn that Richards entered the transfer portal. As it turns out, it wasn’t long after UCF hired Malzahn that Richards reunited with him at UCF. Richards, a top 100 prospect in the 2019 class, would be the highest-rated player to ever sign with the Knights if his high school ranking carried over. Injuries have limited him throughout most of his two-year career, but he showed plenty of pop when given extended run during last year’s Iron Bowl.

Bryan Thompson, WR, Arizona State: Thompson slotted as the No. 7 overall receiver in 247Sports’ transfer rankings, and he’s a huge pickup from Utah for the Sun Devils. One of the top overall deep threats in the country (25.6 ypc in 2019 and 20.8 ypc in 2020), Thompson is a big upgrade for Arizona State at receiver. The Sun Devils need a No. 1 receiver to emerge for Jayden Daniels, and Thompson has that ability.

Ben VanSumeren, LB, Michigan State: The Spartans need immediate help at linebacker, and they turned to a familiar name to get it, landing VanSumeren from Michigan. A do-it-all prospect coming out of high school, VanSumeren started his Wolverines career at fullback before transitioning to linebacker. Michigan State needs immediate help at that spot with Antjuan Simmons headed to the NFL and not a lot of successful depth behind him – no other linebacker on the roster had better than a 59 PFF grade last year.

Dreshun Miller, CB, Auburn: Miller quietly excelled last season with West Virginia, earning a 73 PFF College grade for a defense that finished fifth nationally in yards allowed per play. Formerly the top overall JUCO cornerback in the 2019 class, Miller exits West Virginia as 247Sports’ fourth-highest rated transfer cornerback of this cycle. He should be a plug-and-play starter for the Tigers alongside Roger McCreary.

NOTABLE NEW NAMES IN THE PORTAL

Joe Milton, QB, Michigan: Milton drew plenty of hype entering the 2020 season as Michigan’s starter but largely struggled, completing 56.7% of his passes and posting a one-to-one TD-to-INT ratio. That said, the former four-star passer has major tools – he’s got a huge arm and resembles a battering ram in the run game – and could still revive his career elsewhere.

Keyon Henry-Brooks, RB, Vanderbilt: Arguably Vanderbilt’s best offensive weapon a season go, Henry-Brooks opting to enter the portal came as a surprise. A versatile back who ran for 494 yards and caught 28 passes last season (9.2 ypc) in just six games, Henry-Brooks drew a 74.5 PFF grade last season. He’ll have an argument as a top 10 transfer back in the 247Sports rankings.

Theo Howard, WR, Oklahoma: Howard was one of the biggest transfer additions of the offseason this time last year. An honorable mention all-Pac-12 player in 2018 when he caught 51 passes for 677 yards for UCLA, Howard seemed like a plug-and-play player for Oklahoma after injuries forced him to miss almost the entire 2019 season. But injuries again slowed Howard, costing him most of the 2020 offseason with his new team. Now, Howard is on the move again after catching just 13 passes for 163 yards with the Sooners.

Nate Craig-Myers, WR, Colorado State: This should be a familiar name for recruiting fans. Craig-Myers ranked as a top 50 prospect way back in the 2016 class, signing with Auburn. He never really took off on The Plains, eventually transferring to Colorado State. Craig-Meyers had a solid 2019 season, catching 23 passes for 329 yards and followed that up with six catches in three games last season.

Ale Kaho, LB, Alabama: A one-time five-star prospect in the 2018 class who (briefly) enrolled at Washington before finding his way to Alabama, Kaho never really carved out a defensive role in Tuscaloosa. Kaho finished his Tide career with 31 total tackles, most of which occurred on special teams. It should be said that Kaho was a special teams star, even posting three career blocked kicks. It’ll be interesting to see what he looks like if given an extended run as a starter.

Kaleb Oliver, DB, Georgia Tech: Oliver has been really solid in his Yellowjackets career, posting 91 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss and three interceptions between the 2018 and 2020 seasons. Oliver was especially good in 2019 when he posted a 71.3 PFF grade, which ranked fourth on the team defensively. The Tennessee native ranked as the No. 525 overall prospect in the 2017 class.

One thing you can say about Zach is he's determined to find the right fit. Is this his last chance?  I would think so unless they decide to allow a 7th year.

Sometimes I am as bad as E at picking up sarcasm. Sometimes even worse than E.
