NOV. 27: TYLER VAN DYKE, MIAMI

Miami’s long-time starting quarterback is moving on after four years in Coral Gables. InsideTheU and 247Sports reported Monday that Tyler Van Dyke will enter the transfer portal with one year of eligibility. The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder had a see-saw Miami, emerging on the scene in relief of an injured D’Eriq King during the 2021 season. Van Dyke struggled in 2022 in a new offense after Rhett Lashlee departed. He was better to begin the 2023 season, erupting for five touchdowns against Texas A&M, but a home loss to Georgia Tech began a four-game span in which he threw 10 interceptions over four starts. Van Dyke was benched but later returned after an injury to starter Emory Williams and started the final two games for Miami. In three seasons as Miami’s quarterback, the Connecticut native totaled 7469 passing yards with 54 touchdowns to 23 interceptions while completing 63.7 percent of his throws.

NOV. 27: AJ SWANN, VANDERBILT

Vanderbilt quarterback AJ Swann announced Monday that he will enter the NCAA transfer portal. Swann started all six games that he appeared in for the Commodores in 2023, completing 54.6% of his passes for 1,457 yards and 12 touchdowns against seven interceptions. Arguably the gem of Vanderbilt's 2022 recruiting class, Swann flipped to the Commodores late in the cycle from Maryland. Swann took as the starter midway through the 2022 season and entered the 2023 campaign as Vanderbilt's clear-cut starting quarterback but went to the bench after five games due to a combination of an injury well as performance amid a high-turnover stretch. Ken Seals started the five games that Swann missed. Like Swann, Seals is also in the portal. 

NOV. 27: WILL HOWARD, KANSAS STATE

Kansas State quarterback Will Howard officially hit the transfer portal on Monday afternoon as a grad transfer. This isn't a surprise, really, given Howard has eligibility remaining and Kansas State is probably eager to begin the Avery Johnson era in 2024, but Howard entered the 2023 season as a top-10 quarterback on some lists and is going to be a coveted dual-threat player who can thrive with the right tools around him. Howard threw for 24 touchdowns to 10 interceptions this fall, adding 364 yards and nine scores on the ground. He was a revelation in 2022, earning the starting job at midseason and guiding Kansas State to a Big 12 title.  

Also entering the transfer portal from Kansas State on Nov. 27 was QB Adryan Lara, a 2022 three-star recruit who had been working with the scout team and did not record any statistics. 

NOV. 27: KATIN HOUSER, MICHIGAN STATE

Houser intends to enter. A redshirt freshman during the 2023 season, Houser completed 112 of 191 passes (59%) for 1,132 yards and six touchdowns to five interceptions while adding two rushing scores in 11 games. Originally from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco, Houser was a four-star recruit. He took his talents to the Spartans as the class of 2022's No. 225 overall prospect, No. 11 quarterback and No. 19 player in California.

NOV. 27: JEFFERSON BOAZ, NORTH CAROLINA

The 6-foot-7, 235-pound Boaz officially entered Nov. 27. In two games from 2020-23, Boaz completed one pass for three yards. Formerly a three-star recruit out of Pilot Mountain (N.C.) East Surry, Boaz was the No. 34 tight end and No. 25 player in North Carolina for the 2020 class.

NOV. 27: DEXTER WILLIAMS, INDIANA

Williams officially entered Nov. 27. A redshirt junior during the 2023 season, Williams' production largely came in 2022 when he played four games. His numbers included 13-of-38 passing (34%) for 184 yards and two touchdowns to two interceptions while adding one rushing score and 165 yards on 40 carries (4.1 average). A three-star recruit from Macon (Ga.) Mount De Sales Academy, Williams was the class of 2020's No. 21 dual-threat quarterback and No. 61 player in Georgia.

NOV. 26: BRENDAN SORSBY, INDIANA

Sorsby announced his intent to enter Nov. 26 and officially did so Nov. 27, did not take over as Indiana’s full-time starter until Week 7. The redshirt freshman finished the regular season with 1,587 yards through the air on 57% passing with 15 touchdowns against five interceptions to go along with 276 yards and four touchdowns on the ground. He accounted for at least two total touchdowns in each of his six starts. The Lake Dallas (Texas) native has three years of eligibility remaining.

NOV. 26: NATE JOHNSON, UTAH

After accounting for three touchdowns in limited action over four games last season, Johnson — who announced Nov. 26 that he intends to enter — split time with Bryson Barnes early in 2023, giving the Utes a dynamic rushing threat at the quarterback position. In eight games this season, the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder threw for 499 yards and three touchdowns on 54.2% passing. He also rushed for another 300 yards and four touchdowns on 41 carries excluding sacks, including 219 yards after contact, according to PFF College. The Clovis (Calif.) product will have three years of eligibility remaining at his next school.

NOV. 26: MAX JOHNSON, TEXAS A&M

Johnson, who officially entered Nov. 26, heads to the transfer portal for the second time in three years — this time as a grad transfer. The 6-foot-6, 230-pound signal-caller entered the last two seasons as the Aggies’ backup before eventually moving into the starting role, but both of his seasons were cut short by injuries. He appeared in eight games this season, including five starts after Connor Weigman went down with a season-ending injury, completing 62.1% of his passes for 1,452 yards with nine touchdowns to five interceptions. The former LSU transfer has two years of eligibility remaining.

NOV. 26: KEN SEALS, VANDERBILT

Seals was a part-time starter in three of the last four seasons for the Commodores, amassing 4,292 career yards through the air with 31 total touchdowns. He announced his intent to enter Nov. 26. Seals completed 105 of 179 passes (58.7%) for 1,183 yards with 11 touchdowns to four interceptions over 10 games (six starts) this season while rushing for two more scores. The Weatherford (Texas) product will have two years of eligibility remaining at his next school.

NOV. 24: WILL ROGERS, MISSISSIPPI STATE

One of the most prolific passers in SEC history, Rogers has amassed 12,315 passing yards and 94 passing touchdowns over 43 career games as a four-year starter for the Bulldogs — those marks rank second and fourth in league history. He had his best seasons under Mike Leach in 2021 and 2022, throwing for a combined 8,713 yards and 71 touchdowns. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder completed 59.9% of his passes for 1,626 yards with 12 touchdowns to four interceptions in eight games this season, missing four games due to an upper-body injury.

Editor's note: Rogers officially entered Nov. 27.

NOV. 19: TYLER SHOUGH, TEXAS TECH

Shough, a former Oregon transfer, officially entered Nov. 19. He spent the past three seasons at Texas Tech but was limited to just 15 games (13  starts) over that span due to a pair of season-ending injuries. He finished his Red Raider career with 2,922 yards through the air on 62.4% passing with 20 touchdowns against 11 interceptions while rushing for an additional 432 yards and eight scores. The six-year veteran has one year of eligibility remaining due to the COVID year.

NOV. 13: SPENCER PETRAS, IOWA

A former three-year starter for the Hawkeyes, Petras — who officially entered Nov. 13 — spent this season in a student assistant role while recovering from major shoulder surgery for an injury that he sustained in the 2022 regular season finale. The 6-foot-5, 231-pounder completed 56.7% of his passes for 5,199 yards with 35 total touchdowns (24 passing, 11 rushing) to 19 interceptions in 37 career games over five seasons in Iowa City. He has one year of eligibility remaining due to the COVID year.

Rumblings that Dylan Sampson might be entering the portal. He's probably the most talented guy on offense after Bru McCoy went down with injury. Though he's doing the same things a few other Vols players did last offseason when they wanted to increase their NILs. On the other hand, he's the backup to Wright despite being the most talented runner on the team so I could see him wanting to get more starter's reps.
