MY TOP TEN
Alabama QB Julian Sayin will enter the transfer portal less than a month after signing, ESPN’s Pete Thamel reported. Sayin already received a prediction from 247Sports’ Tom Loy to land at Ohio State to join fellow 2024 5-star quarterback Air Noland (GA). Hours before, former Washington quarterback Austin Mack (stats) followed head coach Kalen DeBoer to the Crimson Tide after redshirting as a true freshman.
USC’s 2025 4-star QB commit Julian Lewis (GA) will visit Auburn this weekend, followed by weekend trips to Colorado and Georgia, 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong reported. Lewis committed to the Trojans in August and this week, he reclassified to the 2025 recruiting class from 2026 where he had been the top-rated quarterback prospect. USC head coach Lincoln Riley visited Lewis earlier this week.
2025 4-star QB George MacIntyre (TN) is not expected to commit this week but is closing in on a decision, On3’s Chad Simmons reported. Tennessee is the favorite for the top uncommitted quarterback in the class, but Alabama’s new coaching staff will likely get its shot. LSU has been in the mix, but the Tigers just added 5-star Bryce Underwood (MI).

He signed with the Wildcats as a 4-star prospect last month and appears likely to rejoin former Arizona head coach Jedd Fisch with the Huskies. Williams originally committed to Ole Miss, and he Washington lost five quarterbacks from its 2023 roster with true freshman Dermaricus Davis as likely the only QB on the roster who’s on scholarship.
