Transfer Portal Rankings: Top 10 defensive linemen
The transfer portal has slowed down as we are in July, but with so many players changing schools rankings are a must. Here is my rating of the top 10 defensive linemen who have switched schools this cycle.
CLASS OF 2023 RANKINGS: Rivals100
RIVALS CAMP SERIES: Info/coverage on 2021 camp series
1. Big Kat Bryant, UCF
The Auburn transfer can be unleashed at the Group of Five level and finally live up to all his potential.
2. Jay Toia, UCLA
The former four-star showed great signs in the spring for USC and is a massive addition to the Bruins' defensive line.
3. Arnold Ebiketie, Penn State
He’s not a huge name, but he was coveted by a few and Penn State really needs help along the defensive line. Temple transfers have done well in college football.
4. Keion White, Georgia Tech
White is a massive end who had 19 tackles for loss last season and is just starting to learn how to rush the passer consistently. Going from Old Dominion to the ACC, he will be very good.
5. John Ridgeway, Arkansas
From FCS to the SEC? This kid has a motor that does not stop.
6. Antonio Shelton, Florida
The Gators will get out of him what Penn State almost did, as he’s a massive pocket pusher who is starting to emerge as more of a pass rusher.
7. Travez Moore, Arizona State
8. Keir Thomas, Florida State
I like Thomas, but the defensive end never broke out at South Carolina. He brings experience and leadership.
9. Joseph Anderson, Purdue
Anderson can play end or tackle, and he showed a few small flashes at South Carolina.
10. Randy Charlton, Mississippi State
Charlton had off-field issues at UCF, but he has Power Five starting talent and can get in passing lanes as well.
