PRAISE Portal. The first week of the NCAA Transfer Portal has just wrapped up and there are a ton of hotly contested transfers out there (We see you there QB Savion Knox 6-4 228 (So) Avenal (Avenal CA) 3.0 of 4.0 [Hybrid]). But we're here to talk about the guys who went unbid upon. The guys who fell through the cracks week one and will be getting a rush of calls for their services as teams who missed out week 1 move to plan B or C. This list is going to focus mostly on the pro potential players who went unbid on. There are plenty of 3.5/3.5 guys who will make a difference somewhere but there are too many to focus in on, some of them will be listed as honorable mentions at the bottom.
TE Kingsley Webb 6-1 238 Sr Lake-Sumter State College (Leesburg FL) 4.0 of 4.0 [Blocking] from Auburn
Webb is a pro level blocking Tight End out of Auburn who didn't attract any attention week 1. Webb signed with Auburn as a JUCO last season and promptly is transferring out of the program (Coach Rome thanks him for the recruiting rank boost). Webb is an unknown quantity that can help a lot of programs around the nation, especially those that are run based offenses. He can go to either FBS or FCS teams. If he goes FCS he will be immediately eligible and enter the draft after next season. Otherwise we will have to wait a year to see what Webb has to offer.
RB Amir Turner Jr. 5-8 195 Sr Louisburg College (Louisburg NC) 4.0 of 4.0 [Speed] from East Carolina
Amir Turner has been trash talked by his former coach @Weeze56m but he still is seen as having an outside chance of making the NFL by scouts. Turner Jr. was underwhelming to say the least last season at ECU. Turner had 122 rushes last year for 427 yards and 3 TDs, he did fumble the ball twice and averaged 3.5 YPC. That being said the Pirates relied almost exclusively on Kyler Murray last year, throwing the ball 490 times. In the right environment Turner might be able to show his pro potential more effectively. I'm not saying he's a 1000 yard back but I don't think the about 10 touches per game last year did this back any favors. Turner like Webb will have a season left to play and is either FBS or FCS eligible.
QB Eli Sherrill 5-10 215 Sr Bainbridge (Bainbridge, WA) 4.0 of 4.0 [Pocket] from Oregon State
Sherrill is the only 4.0+ QB that's transferring that did not receive any interest from schools in week one. This isn't the most surprising thing in the world as the Oregon State product can only be described as having a mediocre track record on a good day. Last season starting for the Beavers he was 182/311 (58.52% completion) for 2025 yards, 12 TDs, 12 INTs, 1 FUM, 118.23 QBR. This is not great looking but was a higher QBR that Oregon Starter Jason Baum among others. There is something there, it might not be a world beater but he could be a starter outside of the P5 pretty easily in my opinion. It's well known that Oregon State has been a "shit show" for a while. I think Sherrill may end up in FCS with Luck going to UCD and Harvard leading on both Beckwith and Best maybe one of those QB hungry teams at the FCS level takes a chance. Either way he has a single year of eligibility.
RB Kenneth Love 5-10 204 (Sr) Notre Dame (Quincy, IL) 4.0 of 4.0 [Speed] from Michigan
Love is only eligible for a FCS Transfer (sorry RB hungry FBS teams!). Love surprisingly went unbid on in week 1 in the portal. This commentator thought that he'd be someone's top target but it just didn't shake out that way. Love played 3rd Down Back last year for the Wolverines. He put up a very respectable 37 carries for 193 yards, 4 TDs for a 5.22 YPC. Love clearly has some skills that would translate over to the FCS level. It's clear that he would benefit from a feature back roll somewhere. I expect heavy competition on him this week from the FCS squads.
Those are the four pro potential players that didn't receive any attention this first week. There are many of those near pro players (3 or 3.5/3.5) that didnt get any calls either. Some notable ones will be listed below (FBS/FCS Eligible only)
