Likely LB Montrel Wilson also ::

Snell surprises me a bit. He was always sort of a "next guy we might offer" that whole cycle.

This FSU tight end has started to follow a bunch of coaches including Warehime and Herman. Warehime also followed him back. Marshall has also been liking tweets from Warehime. 

I wouldn't hate an older, experienced TE. Also Maine to Tally must have been quite the adjustment, woof.

He's a redshirt freshman who hasn't played a snap.

Since Pfeiffer is Vandy guy....... probably can qualify at TEXAS..... 

Honors:  2016 First Team SEC All-Freshman OL, Athlon Sports

2017:  Pfiefer played in 10 games, contributing at offensive guard and on special team conversion units... Earned starts at left guard in early-season victories over Middle Tennessee, Alabama A&M and Kansas State and kept the assignment for the next two games... Injuries limited his participation late in the season.

2016:  Pfeifer took over for Delando Crooks at left guard early in the season and never relinquished his position... Redshirt freshman showed improvement with each game, playing most of the team's critical snaps over the last nine games... By the end of the season, Pfeifer and the line played a huge role in running Ralph Webb becoming the team's all-time leading rusher and sophomore Kyle Shurmur producing one of the finest seasons ever by a Commodore quarterback... Earned Freshman All-SEC honors from Athlon Sports... Pfeifer and the line helped the Commodore offense improved in nearly every stat category from 2015, including points scored, first downs, total yards and red-zone efficiency where the unit produced points on 43 of 46 possessions inside the 20-yard line.

McMurphy said in the comments that the transfer database is not available to the public.

 

In Ean Pfeiffer's pinned tweet it says he's sitting out the 2018 season and will have 2 years of eligibility left, but in his Vanderbilt profile it listed him as a RS Sophomore for the 2017 season. That means this is his 4th year and he should have just played at Vanderbilt this year and then been a grad transfer (unless Vanderbilt wasn't going to allow it). He'll only have 1 year left regardless once he transfers.

at this point, we are looking for instant help (juco or grad transfer) on the oline(~2), DL(1, pass rush ability specifically) and LB(1). correct?

I think so, and if we don't land an instant impact guy at RB, I wouldn't mind going back to the grad transfer market for that position as well.

It wouldn’t be the first time that the people running a college athletic website confused academic class with eligibility class. I’ve seen mistakes that are never corrected because they just keep adding new info to a bio without correcting old info. For two years, my son’s bio said he ran on a record-setting relay at the Drake Relays when he didn’t even go to the Drake Relays that year. He notified them because of “stolen valor” or whatever, but they didn’t change it for two years.

This new amateur free agent database seems like TEXAS could scarcely have dreamt up a system better for a team in our position. If players are poorly matched to their school based on personal fit or talent/team mismatch, they can move up, down, or sideways. 

The new system lets players get away from places they don't like or where they will not get to play. Herman/the team seem to bond reasonably well; I am not worried about losing a chance to force guys to stay here. We do have some guys that got recruited over and can help both themselves and us by freeing up a Texas scholarship and finding a chance to play elsewhere.

On the flip side, this system also lets guys who are late bloomers, under-rated for other reasons, or just signed with lower-tier schools for some other reason move up. We don't want a roster peppered with disloyal, selfish, ladder climbers, but there are plenty of good players out there who would likely be happy and productive at a new destination without disrupting team chemistry.

What better team to capitalize on this trend than one with a name to sell, spots on the roster to fill, and excitement/apparent resurgence?

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.

 

A few more grad transfers to be

Over the last week or so, we’ve had a couple of guys reach out to us to help publicize their decisions to use the graduate transfer rule. We’re always happy to comply.

College football coaches, keep an eye out for these guys:

Ceejhay French-Love, a tight end out of Arizona State

Ean Pfeifer, an offensive lineman turned tight end out of Vanderbilt

Louisville loses QB Jordan Travis to transfer

Travis was a three-star member of the Cardinals’ 2018 recruiting class, rated as the No. 25 dual-threat quarterback in the country.  As a true freshman this season, Jackson had completed four-of-nine passes for 71 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

As he played in less than four games, Travis can use his redshirt this season and maintain four years of eligibility moving forward.

At the time of Jackson’s decision to leave, he had seemingly ascended to No. 2 on the Cardinals’ depth chart.  WDRB-TV noted that, with Jackson’s departure, the U of L is down to two scholarship quarterbacks — starter Jawon Pass and Malik Cunningham.

Maybe he’s leaving cause they can’t get his name right?
I see Louisville is still thinking about their ex.

Louisville quarterback Jordan Travis is transferring...Ugh

By Mike Rutherford   Nov 1, 2018

In keeping with the 2018 season’s theme of hopelessness and despair, Louisville has announced that freshman quarterback Jordan Travis will transfer out of the program.

“Jordan Travis approached me Tuesday about transferring and we had a productive conversation about his future,” U of L head coach Bobby Petrino said in a release. “He talked about the possibility of getting closer to home and his family, and we agreed that it might be a better situation for him personally. Jordan is a terrific young man and I wish him nothing but the best in his collegiate career.”

Travis appeared in three games this season, tossing for 71 yards and a touchdown while also rushing for 40 yards. He was inserted late in the Boston College game in a move that Petrino said afterward he hoped would “provide a spark” to the Cardinal offense. Travis did not receive any snaps in the next game against Wake Forest.

I’ve said it on here before, but since the spring, the buzz around Floyd Street was that Travis was “far and away” the best thrower of Louisville’s three current scholarship quarterbacks, and the one most likely to return the Cardinals to prominence in the future. So to hear that he won’t even be here to compete for the starting job in the offseason is more than a little disheartening.

The band plays on ...

SI article on 4 game Red shirt Rule

The Week 5 Redshirt Watch: College Football's Newest Annual Tradition

Putting a select few upperclassmen on transfer watch in late September is an acceptable consequence of new redshirt rules that benefit both coaches and players.

By ANDY STAPLES 

September 25, 2018

Mike Gundy had the greatest incentive to rip the new rule and the side effect that has emerged the past few weeks. The Oklahoma State coach had just lost a significant contributor in receiver Jalen McCleskey to the new redshirt rule, which allows players to redshirt as long as they’ve played four or fewer games. McCleskey, a senior, played in the Cowboys’ first four games and then—after catching 15 passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns—decided to leave the team so he can redshirt this season and play somewhere else next season as a graduate transfer.

Yet Gundy didn’t blast the player, and he offered only constructive criticism of the rule.

“He’s been awesome. Great young man. Great family,” Gundy told reporters Monday. “He just didn’t feel like he was getting the ball enough and wants to save his year and sit to transfer to another school. If that’s what guys on the team want to do, then that’s what we’re going to allow them to do.”

Asked if this was an unintended consequence of a rule designed to give coaches flexibility so they didn’t have to burn players’ redshirts late in a season, Gundy pointed out a few potential tweaks going forward. It would be nice, he said, if such departures weren’t a threat to count against a team’s Academic Performance Rate—a measure used by the NCAA to ensure athletes are making satisfactory academic progress that also includes scholarship penalties for programs when the numbers dip too low—if a player leaves in the middle of a season to take advantage of this rule. And Gundy is correct about that. His program shouldn’t be penalized because a player wanted a better opportunity elsewhere.

But neither Gundy nor any of the other coaches came out strong against this particular consequence of the rule for two reasons:

• They all wanted this rule passed.

• It will benefit their teams far more than it will hurt their teams.

American Football Coaches Association president Todd Berry, who began working in 2001—when he was the head coach at Army—on changing the redshirt rule and finally succeeded in June, pointed out that coaches discussed this rule for years before it actually passed. And each time they discussed the rule, those coaches did a cost/benefit analysis. They were aware that some players might leave midseason and pushed for the rule to be passed anyway. “This number was going to be so minimal in relation to the benefit as a whole,” Berry said Tuesday.

That’s probably why Oregon coach Mario Cristobal didn’t get too upset when he learned this week that senior tailback Taj Griffin planned to leave and play his final season elsewhere. “It’s playing time oriented,” Cristobal told reporters. “Anytime a student-athlete has a decision to make that’s in the best interest of himself, we support it 100%, so we do.”

Coaches probably don’t need to worry too much about losing players to the rule because it offers the biggest benefit to players who have either graduated or are a few classes away from graduation. The graduate transfer rule allows them to play immediately after transferring, which means the redshirt rule now allows seniors who haven’t redshirted to dip a toe in their senior season and decide if the role they have is the one they want in their final college seasons. Most seniors who play aren’t going to be unhappy with their roles, so most won’t leave. But on rare occasions, they will. (And since they aren’t playing or aren’t getting as many touches as they’d like, their departures probably won’t sting that much.)

What coaches will keep an eye on is whether the undergraduate transfers who leave in midseason—such as receiver Nate Craig-Myers, who left Auburn last week—receive waivers from the NCAA to play right away. At the moment, such players have little incentive to leave midseason because while they may get a redshirt for this season, they still would have to sit out all or part of next season. (Remember, quarterback Blake Barnett left Alabama during the 2016 season and enrolled quickly at Arizona State so that he’d be eligible midseason in 2017.) If the NCAA grants more waivers, then players might be more likely in later years to leave as undergraduates in midseason to preserve that year of eligibility. If the NCAA is stingy with the waivers, then only graduates and potential graduates would benefit from using the redshirt rule.

We may learn of more players who plan to transfer in the next few weeks. Some teams won’t play their fourth game until this weekend, and some players may have missed games and haven’t hit the four-game threshold yet. Still, the focus of transfer watch this week will be on two quarterbacks whose teams have already played four games and who don’t appear to be headed anywhere.

We spent much of the offseason debating whether Jalen Hurts would leave Alabama if it became apparent that Tua Tagovailoa was the Crimson Tide’s quarterback of the future. Tagovailoa has unquestionably proven that—and then some—but Hurts seems to have given us his answer by the way he’s handled himself in the three games since Tagovailoa was named the starter. Nothing about Hurts’s play or his body language suggests he’s thinking about doing anything except playing the rest of the season for Alabama. Alabama coach Nick Saban told ESPN’s Chris Low last week that he intends to play Hurts the rest of the season, and there has been no indication that Hurts feels otherwise.

The situation that seems more intriguing—but may not be—is the one at Clemson. On Monday, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney named freshman Trevor Lawrence the starting quarterback for the Tigers’ game against Syracuse on Saturday. Lawrence supplanted senior Kelly Bryant, who has gone 16–2 as Clemson’s starter since last season. On Tuesday, Swinney said his Monday meeting with Bryant was very emotional. Swinney also said he gave Bryant the day off practice—which prompted more questions about whether Bryant might leave.

And if Bryant decided he wanted to leave, Swinney would understand. “Certainly if he walked in here today and said, ‘Hey Coach, I don’t want to play the rest of the year unless you’ve got to have me,’ well O.K., if that’s what you want to do I’m all for it. I love Kelly,” Swinney told reporters Tuesday. “I would be disappointed in that because we need him. But I wouldn’t judge him for that.”

But Swinney doesn’t think Bryant will leave. “If I was worried about that or if I was deceitful in some way, I could have held the coaches up and said, ‘Let’s make sure we start him for Syracuse. That way he’s got no option,’” Swinney told reporters. “I don’t think like that. I don’t operate that way.”

Until Bryant enters another game or announces his intention to stay, the questions will linger. And this kind of Week 5 personnel intrigue might become a new annual tradition.

A friend of mine played for Petrino. Says he is a dick but lives football and studies film day and night. New recruits probably can't handle the fact he is a dick and he is probably more of a dick this year due to the crappy play.

I know you don't browse the football board Tex, but really? Dakich? We've been through this.

Also, if Rondale goes anywhere, 1) it would be dumb given the level he's playing at right now and 2) he would transfer to wherever Brohm goes.

Former Penn State LB Manny Bowen joining Utah

Former Penn State linebacker Manny Bowen is headed to Utah for his final season as a graduate transfer.

Bowen was dismissed from the program following the Nittany Lions' bowl game last season for what the school said was a violation of unspecified team rules. After briefly returning during training camp, he left the team before the season began. In three seasons at Penn State, Bowen made 21 starts and appeared in 35 games with 134 tackles and 12.5 tackles for loss.
