Transfer Tracker: Four offensive talents enter the portal
The transfer portal never stops and there have been some big names making their way in over the last couple of days. Here are the ones that intrigue me the most.
Mark Pszonak contributed to this report.
WASHINGTON STATE WR JAMIRE CALVIN
As a Cougar: Despite dealing with some injuries, Calvin still totaled 92 receptions for 980 yards and five touchdowns at Washington State.
Farrell’s take: Calvin is a speedster and will be coveted but he’s so hard to read as you can tell by his recruitment with numerous commitments. He has ties to Steve Sarkisian at Texas and should draw interest from USC, UCLA and others. He’s a high impact kid for someone at the Power Five level.
Impact rating: 8.1 out of 10
OKLAHOMA WR TREVON WEST
As a Sooner: West played in eight games as a true freshman at Oklahoma, finishing with four receptions for 59 yards.
Farrell’s take: West was a bit of a reach for OU but they liked his speed and ability out of the slot. My assumption is he will drop down to Group of Five and likely join his brother or head to Texas State and have a chance to make a solid impact.
Impact rating: 5.3 out of 10
MIAMI QB N'KOSI PERRY
Recruiting: Perry initially committed to Miami during his sophomore season, but then re-opened his recruitment more than a year later. He then re-committed to the Hurricanes less than two months later.
As a Hurricane: Perry started three games in 2019 and six in 2018, combining for 2,136 yards with 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions. In 2020 he served as D'Eriq King's primary backup, appearing in five games, passing for 348 yards, three touchdowns and an interception.
Farrell’s take: Your guess is as good as mine where Perry will land but he had a promising performance in the Cheez-It Bowl when D’Eriq King went down. Perry has proven he can play at a high level at times so I think he’ll be popular.
Impact rating: 5.9 out of 10
PENN STATE TE ZACK KUNTZ
As a Nittany Lion: Kuntz finished his career with three receptions for 26 yards, while also seeing time on special teams. He played behind Pat Freiermuth this season, while battling for time with Brenton Strange and Theo Johnson.
Farrell’s take: Kuntz had a ton of talent coming out of high school as a big pass catcher who could also block but his lack of production at Penn State with many opportunities is troubling. Right now, his size and athletic ability will bring some Power Five interest but I feel he’s going to have to drop a level.
Impact rating: 4.7 out of 10
The Transfer Portal continues to change the way college football programs recruit and mange their rosters so we here at Rivals.com continue to evolve our coverage. Each time a player of note enters the portal, we will examine their potential impact on the college football landscape and assign an impact rating, both when they enter the portal and when they choose a destination. The scale is from 1-10 and the description below explains the scoring scale.
1.1-4.0 — Not a big impact expected, likely a non-starter and down the bench depth player.
4.1- 6.0 — A solid impact can be expected in the right scenario and has the potential to battle for a starting job.
6.1-9.0. — A high impact player who won’t change a program but will certainly be a very good contributor and starter.
9.1- 9.9 — A very high impact player who should start the moment he steps on the field and will change the outlook of a program immediately.
10 — A franchise transfer who has a chance to be an All American and one of the elite players in college football.
