The transfer portal has slowed down as we are in July, but with so many players changing schools rankings are a must. Here is my rating of the top 10 linebackers who have switched schools this cycle.
CLASS OF 2023 RANKINGS: Rivals100
RIVALS CAMP SERIES: Info/coverage on 2021 camp series
1. Henry To’o To’o, Alabama
2. Mike Jones, LSU
3. Jermaine Johnson, Florida State
Johnson could be a double-digit sack guy for Florida State after showing promise with UGA and I have him at linebacker because of his ability in space.
Palaie Gaotetote, Ohio State
He’s still waiting on his eligibility status but the former five-star from USC has a chance to make a massive impact with his instincts.
Jordan Strachan, South Carolina
He was nearly a double-digit sack guy at Georgia State and should boost the Gamecocks’ pass rush immediately.
Jacquez Jones, Kentucky
A big time tackler in the SEC he’s already shown what he can do and is a plug and play standout for the Wildcats.
Itayvion Brown, Michigan State
Brown is a massive talent who left Minnesota and all his potential is ahead of him for the Spartans.
Lance Dixon, West Virginia
Quavaris Crouch, Michigan State
Crouch had a good season for the Vols and is just starting to reach his potential as a linebacker as he has now learned the position.
Deandre Johnson, Miami
Johnson can do a lot of work in the offensive backfield as he showed at Tennessee and he will help the pass rush losses Miami sustained. He’s another I have at linebacker because of his hybrid ability.
