[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image source="featured_image" img_size="large"][vc_column_text]The transfer portal has tons of great talent still available, especially at the linebacker position. Let's check out the five best available guys.
1. Diamonte Tucker-Dorsey – James Madison
Transfer portal entry date: 5-17-2022
Career at James Madison: Tucker-Dorsey was an FCS All-American in 2021 after totaling 116 tackles, nine tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, and four interceptions.
Current situation: Upon his official entry into the portal, Tucker-Dorsey immediately became a priority for programs from coast-to-coast. As the offers rolled in, he also quickly trimmed his list of top schools down to UCF and Texas. With his visit to Austin having ended on Wednesday, look for a decision from Tucker-Dorsey to come rather quickly.
2. Aaron Willis – Tennessee
Transfer portal entry date: 5-2-2022
Career at Tennessee: Willis played in eight games during his true freshman season in Knoxville. His time on the field was mostly on special teams.

3. Lorenzo McCaskill – Louisiana
Transfer portal entry date: 1-14-2022
Career at Louisiana: After signing with Louisiana as a JUCO recruit, he totaled 239 tackles, eight tackles for a loss, and four sacks in four seasons with the Ragin’ Cajuns.
Current situation: Offers from Missouri, Tennessee, USC and Miami-Ohio quickly arrived for McCaskill after he entered the portal in January, but things have gone quiet over the last couple of months. New interest has come in from schools like Arizona State, Rutgers, Middle Tennessee, Georgia Southern, and Arkansas State.
4. Quavaris Crouch – Michigan State
Transfer portal entry date: 4-29-2022
Career at Tennessee/Michigan State: In two seasons with Tennessee Crouch totaled 85 tackles and three tackles for a loss. In his one season in East Lansing, he finished with 75 tackles, two tackles for a loss, and one forced fumble. In his three collegiate seasons, he has accumulated 160 tackles, five tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles.
Current situation: Coming off his most productive collegiate season, interest has steadily come in from schools like Auburn, Maryland, Kansas, Rutgers, Washington, Texas State, USF, UNLV, Colorado State, Arkansas State, Charlotte, Troy, and Utah State.
5. Navonteque Strong - LSU
Transfer portal entry date: 10-27-2021
