[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image source="featured_image" img_size="large"][vc_column_text]The portal never sleeps, so neither do we. Back with an updated list of the top five wide receivers available in the portal right now.

1. Deion Smith – LSU

Portal entry date: 12-8-2021

Grad-transfer: No

Career at LSU: During his true freshman season in Baton Rouge, Smith totaled 11 receptions for 186 yards and two touchdowns.

Current situation: Unlike the other players on this list, Smith has been in the portal for months. There were rumors that he might return to LSU since he stayed on campus into the spring, but he did not participate in the team’s practices. So where will he likely end up? The rumors for a couple of months now is that he will return to his home state of Mississippi and play for the Rebels. And that remains his likely destination, while other schools like Penn State, South Carolina, Arizona State, Oregon, and Houston continue to try to change that outcome.

2. Koy Moore – LSU

Portal entry date: 10-19-2021

Grad-transfer: No

Career at LSU: Moore totaled 27 receptions for 248 yards during his two seasons in Baton Rouge. He also returned six punts. He entered the portal during the 2021 season, after playing in the first six games.

Current situation: The initial list of suitors was long, with Auburn, Oregon, Nebraska, UCF, Oklahoma, Florida State, Ole Miss, Minnesota, Purdue, Indiana, and Tennessee all making a push. However, as time went on rumors began to surface that Moore would return to LSU. Those were quickly squashed when he was not on the spring roster. Auburn was again linked with Moore and a possible official visit in March, but that never materialized. Since then it has been rather silent, but a few schools like Arizona State, Colorado, Washington, and Colorado State have begun to stand out.

3. Demond Demas – Texas A&M

Portal entry date: 3-29-2022

Grad-transfer: No

Career at Texas A&M: After redshirting as a true freshman, Demas finished the 2021 season in College Station with 15 receptions for 235 yards and one touchdown. He was not with the team during spring practice this year after getting arrested on a family violence assault charge that occurred in February.

Current situation: Demas would be higher on this list if not for his current legal issues. Most schools seem to be taking a wait-and-see approach before recruiting Demas more actively, but at this point, some of the schools that have reached out include Tennessee, Utah, Arizona, Utah State, Troy, Appalachian State, Eastern Michigan, Jackson State, and Alabama A&M.

4. Tyler Page – SMU

Portal entry date: 5-2-2022

Grad-transfer: Yes

Career at SMU: Page totaled 65 receptions for 862 yards and four touchdowns during his time with the Mustangs. His best season came in 2020 when he had 39 receptions for 422 yards and two touchdowns.

Current situation: Interest and offers have continued to roll in for Page, with Colorado, Appalachian State, Toledo, Middle Tennessee, UTSA, Arizona State, and Liberty currently leading the way.

5. Kaemen Marley – Tennessee

Portal entry date: 1-14-2022

Grad-transfer: No

Career at Tennessee: During his one season in Knoxville, Marley initially saw time at defensive back, but then moved to wide receiver. He did not see the field while also dealing with some nagging injuries.

Current situation: This is a unique one, as Marley has the physical ability to play a number of positions so it is still unclear where on the field he will play at his next stop. He has also remained extremely quiet since entering the portal more than five months ago. However, a few schools to keep an eye on are NC State, South Carolina, East Carolina, and Appalachian State.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
