We've seen new coaches use the portal to rebuild rosters in the past, with Lincoln Riley adding quarterback Caleb Williams, receiver Mario Williams and other offensive players to bring his high-powered offense to the Trojans last year. This offseason has been no different, with new Colorado coach Deion Sanders adding three players from ESPN's transfer rankings to his roster. We are also seeing coaches finding portal success following their first seasons, with LSU and Oklahoma bringing in new starters.
The transfer portal giveth and the transfer portal taketh away, however. New players joining programs means some schools are losing players just as fast. This offseason, we have seen Kent State and Texas A&M lose several players from the roster. For the new staff at Kent State, it will be difficult to rebuild in a short period of time with the sheer number of players who have entered.
It's a tightrope walk for coaches to manage the number of outgoing players with the number of incoming transfers. To catch you up on the recent movement, here is a look at who has had the most success and who has lost the most in the portal this offseason. Players have until Jan. 18 to enter the portal -- or wait until later in the spring.
