Transfer portal window

The spring transfer portal window closes on Sunday. Haven’t seen much lately on Northwestern players likely to transfer out or players coming in through the portal.

Nebraska is still close to a dozen players over the scholarship limit, and at least 3 Huskers entered the transfer portal today, so more are expected.

The most interesting story may be the one developing in Colorado. Coach Sanders looks ready to run off half or more of the players who were on CU’s roster a year ago and had remaining eligibility, Colorado media estimates are that only 20 players on last year’s roster will still be around come August.

He’s also been very busy signing players from the transfer portal, including a handful of players who followed him from Jackson State.

Both teams may be taking advantage of an NCAA rule that allows a new coach to convert players’ athletic scholarships into academic scholarships if they don’t participate in sports, but those players may prefer to find another school willing to give them a shot at playing.
