MY TOP THREE
Mississippi State transfer QB Will Rogers (stats) withdrew from the portal to play for Washington in his final season. The four-year starter originally committed to the Huskies but re-entered the portal head coach Kalen DeBoer left for Alabama. Washington has its starter but needs more quarterback help with Rogers as the only one in the room to play a college football snap.
2025 4-star QB George MacIntyre committed to in-state Tennessee. This had been a three-team race with Alabama and LSU, but the Vols appeared in the lead before Nick Saban retired and the Tigers added 5-star Bryce Underwood (MI).
Arizona transfer QB Jayden de Laura (stats) withdrew from Texas State a week after committing to the Bobcats. His entrance led to last year’s starter TJ Finley (stats) to hit the transfer portal, and de Laura’s commitment led to campus backlash from a 2018 incident (read more about it here). De Laura has one year of eligibility remaining, and the Bobcats are down to a three-man QB room that has combined for three career college football snaps.

Michigan 2025 4-star QB commit Carter Smith (FL) remains committed despite head coach Jim Harbaugh off to the NFL, On3’s Chad Simmons reported. The Wolverines might not make significant changes with OC Sherrone Moore as a likely candidate to be promoted. Smith has been committed since November.
