Under-the-Radar Transfers to Know for 2022 College Football Season

Between the transfer portal and one-time immediate eligibility, keeping track of every Football Bowl Subdivision team’s roster has become a major challenge.

And, hey, it’s the offseason. You might be watching other sports or simply checking in occasionally for the latest college football news. Throughout the last six months, however, thousands of players have entered the portal and found a new school.

Naturally, then, you could’ve missed some notable moves—transfers that don’t command the attention of Caleb Williams and Jordan Addison to USC or Quinn Ewers to Texas, for example.

The list is subjective, but every player highlighted is outside of the top 100 in 247Sports’ transfer rankings.

 

Mitchell Agude, Edge, Miami

Miami has collected an impactful group of transfers once again. The prized addition is Akheem Mesidor, a defensive tackle who left West Virginia and is likely to play a key role.

Alongside him, though, the ‘Canes will likely be relying on former UCLA edge-rusher Mitchell Agude.

In two seasons (19 games) with the Bruins, he amassed 78 tackles with 15.5 for loss and 4.5 sacks. Agude, a 6’4″, 245-pound edge-rusher, also forced seven fumbles.

Miami’s top returning players at the position—Jahfari Harvey and Chantz Williams—each recorded 2.5 sacks last year. Agude has an excellent opportunity to both earn a starting job and immediately become a leading contributor for the Hurricanes.
