The news of 5-star QB Walker Howard hitting the transfer portal this week sent shock waves through Tiger Nation, but apparently it's becoming a common trend. According to On3, almost 50 percent of all D1 teams started the season with a transfer qb and that number is expected to rise. LSU is a prime example of that with JD and several other SEC teams did the same. Georgia, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Kentucky, Auburn and South Carolina also started transfer qbs this season. In fact, the top three QBs in the class of 2021 - Quinn Ewers, Caleb Williams and Sam Huard - transferred out or are currently in the transfer portal! It's clear to say NIL $$$$ and the transfer portal have changed college football drastically. While it's great to land a stud QB and the big headlines that come with it, the chances of developing that QB and getting him to one day start for your team is very, very unlikely!
