  1. Coaches like UTSA's Jeff Traylor, North Texas head coach Seth Littrell and Texas State's Jake Spavital view the transfer portal as way to improve roster, chances at success in 2022 college football season. Listen to a press conference or sports radio or the loud voices on Twitter and it’d be easy to think that the advent of the transfer portal is sure to damage college football, especially at the G5 level. But most of the coaches, at least in Texas, disagree. The transfer portal presents new challenges, and it isn’t a perfect system, but many head coaches argue that their rosters have never been as talented. The sky isn’t falling. The game of football isn’t dying. Like most changes, the outcry outweighs the outcomes. The seven G5 programs in Texas added an average of 9.7 transfers to its programs between the end of the 2021 season and the beginning of fall camp in 2022. SMU led the way with 17. UTEP was the lowest with one, but the Miners did add nine JUCO players to the roster. Of the 68 incoming transfers at the G5 programs in Texas, 43 came from the Power Five level. That’s 63 percent. The talent is trickling down more often than it is bolting for greener pastures. And the more successful and attractive programs are attracting the best talent, and retaining its starters. The foursome of SMU, Houston, UTSA, and Rice brought in 43 transfers with 35 arriving from Power Five Programs (81.3 percent). Those four teams went 36-16 last season. Take away Rice and the three remaining schools went 32-8. Rice's academic reputation and a few more hires on the recruiting staff helped the Owls keep pace. The trio of North Texas, UTEP, and Texas State combined to go 17-21 in 2021. Only eight of the 25 transfers signed by those three schools arrived from Power Five programs (32 percent). read more: https://www.texasfootball.com/article/2022/08/17/in-state-g5-coaches-view-transfer-portal-as-a-net-positive?ref=article_preview_img
  2. ATHENS, Ga. – Georgia has signed seven newcomers who will join the Bulldogs for the 2022-23 season, head coach Mike White announced on Monday. The group includes a fifth-year player (Mardrez McBride from North Texas), a senior (Terry Roberts from Bradley), three juniors (Frank Anselem from Syracuse, Justin Hill from Longwood and Matthew-Alexander Moncrieffe from Oklahoma State), a sophomore (Jusaun Holt from Alabama) and a true freshman (KyeRon Lindsay from Denton, Texas). Because of eligibility extensions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Anselem, Hill, Holt, Moncrieffe and Roberts could play one more season than their classifications would traditionally indicate. "We're very excited about this group of signees," White said. "These young men represent different positions and skill sets individually. Collectively, they represent versatility and an excitement to be at Georgia. All of these young men have been a part of winning at at least one spot along their journey." Of the transfers, five (Anselem, Hill, Holt, McBride and Moncrieffe) played on teams that reached the NCAA Tournament in either 2021 or 2022 and the sixth (Roberts) helped lead Florida SouthWestern to a No. 1 ranking in junior college during 2020. The freshman, Lindsay, played for two top-10 ranked teams in Texas 6A at Denton Guyer High School. McBride is a 6-2, guard from Augusta, Ga., who has played the last two seasons at North Texas. He was one of only two players to start all 60 games for the Mean Green during that span, helping UNT earn bids to the 2021 NCAA Tournament and the 2022 NIT. McBride averaged 11.3 points per game last season for North Texas, which finished 25-7 and reached the second round of the 2022 NIT. He was a major contributor in UNT's 2021 postseason run that included the Mean Green's first-ever NCAA Tournament win. After averaging 6.7 points and scoring in double figures in four of 28 regular-season outings, McBride contributed 11.3 points per game and posted five double-digit outputs in six postseason contests. McBride also played two seasons of junior college basketball at USC Salkehatchie in 2019-20 and McCook (Nebraska) College in 2018-19. He was the Most Valuable Player of both the basketball and football teams as a senior at Butler High School and led the Bulldogs to back-to-back appearances in the Georgia Class AA state basketball tournament in 2017 and 2018. read more: https://georgiadogs.com/news/2022/5/30/mens-basketball-bulldogs-add-seven-newcomers-to-roster.aspx
