Numbers show the transfer portal is very risky move for most college football players
The odds are against players in the NCAA transfer portal:
The introduction of the NCAA transfer portal has forever changed how college football teams create their rosters, and has given players more freedom to direct their careers. But with that newfound freedom comes a lot of risk. According to the official numbers out of the NCAA, entering the portal and trying your luck somewhere else is by no means a sure thing. In fact, almost half of the players who transfer don't find a new school to attend.
33% of players remain without a destination.
