Are there any rules to the portal (ex: you can’t go to conference opponents, coach can limit where you go, etc)?

Is there a link somewhere to who’s in the portal?

Some guy named Tim O’Halloran had this posted on his home page.
Yeah I don't like the Rivals format and I don't see a comprehensive list. Like where can I find it by school?

I clicked the "10 best WR in the portal" link and it took me to an article on 2021 recruits.

I love Tim, and Tim's work. Yet that national work needs work. Not gonna lie about it, but I also didn't link it for a reason.

No offense to Tim but rivals list is not complete. I know 1st hand of a player that was not mentioned in rivals yet 24/7 has him listed as a grad transfer. Fortunately he found a home right before the onset of Covid, had an official visit and is awaiting on a spring season. Secondly some of the rivals choices for top 10 players available is questionable when certain players were also kicked off their previous team for a variety of reasons.

So what percentage of these kids end up finding new school this semester?

How about the University of Tennessee?!? Mass exodus of players entering transfer portal since season over and now more joining in since HC got fired.

Going to be a tough job for whoever gets it.

22 players from Tenn. in the portal - NIU is another school that has a lot of kids in the portal. I get the coaching change to Hammock creates a lot of transfers but wow something is off at NIU since he’s taken over. Appears most of the guys that have left were Rod Carey recruits.

With NCAA investigation into players being paid would you even want these kids on your team? Seems like more headaches for who ever takes them.

And what I've heard that's exactly the plan....they want their own kids in the program not someone else's kids

It’s obvious how things are going to end up at NIU in the next 2-3 years.

I don't get this at all, NIU went 17-7 in the MAC the previous three years before his arrival so this wasn't a job that needed a rebuild it was actually a desirable stop due to their success. If coach can't walk into a decent program and sell his system to the kids that are there why did you hire him in the first place?

Hammock has about a year left. Well maybe more considering how long they let their bball program be awful with the same coach.
He has longer than one year. But he's got to start that upward arrow.

That said, I do like his players. Just not the opening the door for two classes of scholarship athletes

Completely agree. The notion that they are Losing bc they want to play their recruits is total bull.

Its the MAC you have been the most dominant team in that conference for a decade...NIU just reloads.

They can’t afford to buyout his contract and pay a new coach so he’ll ride it out. They got a Big Ten QB with Rocky Lombardi now who should do well in the MAC...if he crashes that car then he’s gone.

There is an niu board out there literally discussing this exact "mass exodus". The turnover is pretty insane

Current HC was brought in by the current AD (Sean Frazier). He will have a long leash.

Sean Frazier (AD) may be the one who needs to keep an eye on his job. His football hire isn't panning out. Mens hoops is off to a 2-10 start.

Also, in 2014 Frazier makes a big announcement on the NIU facility upgrades. It's be 7 years and they have done absolutely nothing with this. (The indoor facility was completed prior to his hiring).

Warren high grad Micah Jones will graduate from notre dame in May. He has entered transfer portal and will hopefully find a place to play next fall. A 4 star recruit, he basically has played less than sparingly in three years with Irish. I got this info reading on web site in which he said he was transferring.

Transfer Portal, it seemed like a good idea at the time. The transfer portal likely will have a long term effect on HS recruiting and current and future college athletes.

It will take a few years to shake out but teams that are consistently involved in the transfer portal will eventually have problems recruiting high school kids since no one is going to go a place and sit on the bench for 2-3 years only to be replaced by a transfer. Not to mention most of the staffs that are doing it consistently are trying to save their jobs and will be gone anyway.

As much truth as there is to that, it really depends on the knowledge of the recruit and the salesmanship of the recruiter/coach.

If the number of first year players are cut, after a few years the number of 2,3,4 year players on the market will go down. It will take five years but the numbers will go back to normal at some point. A lot of kids who have grown up in the transfer culture are going to get burned. On top of players who get run out by the new staff.
