Which big time transfers are you referring to? If they were big time, why would they sit out a year to transfer to ODU? (unless a situation like Mariner)

Gee idk, maybe some like what FAU got and just won a conference title with.

Which transfers in particular?

No. 2 ranked JUCO pro-style quarterback in De’Andre Johnson, who is still battling it out in fall camp to be the starter with returning QB1 Jason Driskel. He resurrected his college career at East Mississippi Community College after he was kicked out of Florida State for punching a woman in a bar.

Ernest Bagner, the nation’s No. 10 JUCO weak-side defensive end out of Riverside Community College.

Tim Bonner, a Louisville transfer that was kicked off after an alleged situation with a gun was ranked as the nation’s No. 11 weak-side defensive end out of East Mississippi Community College.

Joe Pohiva, an unranked JUCO linebacker out of Laney College.

Jeremiah Taleni, kicked off the team at Pittsburgh for disciplinary reasons, Taleni would have been a starter his final season for the Panthers and will play his remaining year of eligibility out with the Owls. Out of Kailua (Hawaii) High, Taleni ranked as the No. 104 defensive tackle in the country in the 2013 recruiting class.

Kain Daub was the nation’s No. 4 inside linebacker when he signed with Florida State in 2014. After red-shirting in Tallahassee he spent two years ASA College before arriving in Boca Raton looking to meet his potential as a former touted recruit.

William Tuihalamaka signed with San Diego State in 2015 as a three-star recruit out Los Angeles (Calif.) Cathedral, ranking as the No. 63 offensive guard in the country. He left the program later that fall.

Listed as a receiver on the Owls roster, D'Anfernee McGriff signed with Florida as a four-star recruit out of Tallahassee (Fla.) Leon in 2015. However he was never able to enroll in Gainesville and ended up at Iowa Western where 247Sports ranked him as the No. 5 athlete in last year’s years class.

DeAndre McNeal was a Top247 recruit in the 247Sports rankings and the nation’s No. 19 athlete per the 247Sports Composite when he signed with Texas in 2015. He was later suspended for a violation of team rules and resurfaced at Fullerton College where 247Sports ranked him as the No. 7 receiver in last year’s class.

Receiver John Franklin III’s journey has taken him from being a three-star quarterback recruit at Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) South Plantation to enrolling at Florida State in 2013 to East Mississippi Community College, where the 247Sports Composite ranked him as the No. 1 JUCO athlete in the country, to Auburn where he struggled under center to FAU where he’ll add speed and playmaking ability on the perimeter.

The 247Sports Composite ranked Chris Robison as the nation’s No. 7 pro-style quarterback when he signed with Oklahoma in February out of Mesquite (Texas) Horn. He was dismissed earlier this month for a violation of team rules but the former four-star recruit quickly found a home at Florida Atlantic.

When receiver Jovon Durante signed with West Virginia in 2015 he was a Top247 recruit and ranked by the 247Sports Composite as the No. 18 player in the country at his position. He was an impact player for two years with the Mountaineers catching 60 passes over two seasons.

If they have had disciplinary issues, they aren't transferring here.

I linked that list in the FAU thread, but mentioned others had brought up that not many at all were impact players. Are they or are they not?

I don't believe many were. Franklin got some action.

Taleni led them in sacks with 5.

Did Durham commit? That would be a pretty nice pickup. He seems really interested.

Looks like we have our first decommit from this class. DE Jamree Kromah looks like has backed out and looks like he's heading to Rutgers. Made a visit there on 12/8 and decommitted on 12/10.

Bummer. He sounded like a good one. Anytime we get a guy over Rutgers and Navy its got to be a good thing. Oh well. Its hard to compete against those Big 10 amenities, facilities, money and TV.

Really hoping we get a commitment from Elijah Davis. This kid is special.

Just watching the first play of this highlight will make you wonder how he doesn't have a P5 offer. Not that I'm complaining, if it means he ends up signing with ODU.
