Top College Football Portal Players Available

As top football transfer portal prospects are quickly making their commitments ahead of the 2023 season, and college football odds are rapidly being updated, only a handful of valuable players are left uncommitted.

Xzavier Henderson, who was among the top transfers, recently committed to Cincinnati, leaving just two remaining uncommitted players for the wide receiver position in the 247Sports' top 500. Accompanying Henderson are other notable players, including Jordan Hudson (SMU) and Keon Coleman (Florida State), who have also made headlines with their recent decisions.

However, Devyn Ford's recent transfer from Penn State to Notre Dame fills a crucial gap at running back left by Logan Diggs. Ford's transfer at the same strengthens the Fighting Irish's offense after they recently acquired former Wake Forest star quarterback Sam Hartman through the portal. While other transfers may still be available, the clock is ticking as teams finalize their fall rosters.

Many may face challenges finding playing time as the offseason comes to a close. Read below to discover some of the top-notch college football players still available in the transfer portal.

1. Zakhari Franklin, WR

With four top players off the market, Texas-San Antonio's (UTSA) standout pass-catcher, Franklin, has caught the attention of football programs seeking experienced firepower. Last season, Franklin racked up impressive stats of 93 receptions, 1,137 yards, and 15 touchdowns, earning him an All-Conference USA selection.

He's now available in the transfer portal and has over 3,000 yards to his name while at UTSA. Expert predictions show Ole Miss as a favorite to land the talented receiver who has already achieved two 1,000-yard campaigns and played a significant role in his team's back-to-back Conference USA wins in 2021.

2. Seydou Traore, TE

The standout receiving tight end for Arkansas State last season made a decision that will shake things up for 2023 -- he's switching to wide receiver! After an impressive 50 receptions for 655 yards and four touchdowns, Traore earned first-team All-Conference recognition as one of the best receiving tight ends in college football.

Traore initially committed to Colorado but later changed his mind to focus on becoming a wide receiver. He has been performing exceptionally well, with a receiving grade that places him fourth among tight ends and seventh among all FBS pass catchers. Don't miss out on following this talented athlete as he makes his mark in this thrilling new role.

3. Ethan White, OL

Having started in every game, Florida's left guard, White, was expected to be a valuable transfer for USC. However, he has yet to make it to Los Angeles due to a potentially career-ending injury. Trojans head coach Lincoln Riley expressed uncertainty about whether he can play football in the future, meaning his status for the upcoming 2023 season remains unknown and putting White back on the portal list. Riley stated that they plan to re-evaluate his condition to determine whether he will be able to continue playing football, allowing White to go back to USC.

4. Marquis Robinson, DL

Robinson has been in and out of the team's recruitment portal multiple times, but it appears his latest departure is permanent. Initially entering the portal quietly in December, Robinson was a highly-rated player in Auburn's 2021 signing class.

Robinson's decision to withdraw his name from the portal resulted in missing the entire spring practice in 2022. This season, he only managed to play in two games and make two tackles. Unfortunately, this appears to be Robinson's final departure from Auburn.

5. Milton Wright, WR

Standing tall at 6-foot-3 and weighing 195 pounds, Wright's large stature made him an instantaneous contributor to Purdue's 2019 team as a true freshman and continued to make an impact through 2021. A four-star recruit from Christian Academy of Louisville, Wright made the decision to choose Purdue and Brohm over top-ranked programs like Ohio State and Alabama. He caught a team-high 57 passes for 732 yards in 2021 before being ruled academically ineligible for 2022.

With David Bell and Rondale Moore recently leaving for the NFL and now Wright transferring, new head coach Ryan Walters is struggling to find replacements to fill their shoes. It's possible that Wright could join his former coach Brohm in Louisville.
