The traffic stop that is the transfer portal was jammed on Monday, with more than 1,000 players entering to continue their careers elsewhere.
Five Power 5 schools — Clemson, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech and Washington State — took the hardest hits. Nearly ten players per school decided to weigh their options in the portal.
The 2021-22 edition of the transfer portal saw more than 3,000 FBS players enter. With NIL deals and one-time transfer exemptions, this season's should be just as, if not more, boisterous.
Major names like Clemson's DJ Uiagalelei, Michigan's Cade McNamara, Pittsburgh's Kedon Slovis and Texas A&M's Denver Harris also entered the portal on Monday.
Some already found their landing spot. But with the early signing period for recruiting approaching (Dec. 21), the sooner players enter the portal, the longer they'll have to decide their next step.
Other notable schools that had a high number of transfer entries include Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado State and Oregon, among others.
The transfer window started on Dec. 5 and ends on Jan. 18.
