Spencer Sanders – Oklahoma State
The skinny: Sanders passed for 9,533 yards and 67 touchdowns, while rushing for 1,956 yards and 18 touchdowns, during his time in Stillwater. He started 41 games since the beginning of the 2019 season.
Recruiting: Auburn and Ole Miss have been in the forefront since he entered the portal, with the Tigers now being his likely destination. Auburn had prioritized Devin Leary, who then signed with Kentucky, and Grayson McCall, who withdrew from the portal, before turning all of their quarterback attention to Sanders.
Malik Hornsby – Arkansas
The skinny: While he did not have a great deal of on-field experience during his time with the Razorbacks, he did showcase a sufficient amount of potential. Hornsby passed for 314 yards and rushed for 307 yards in 15 games of spot-duty, but also may make a switch to wide receiver at his next destination.
Recruiting: That next destination very well could be Nebraska. Hornsby has already taken an official visit to Lincoln and while he has yet to commit, all signs point to him playing next season in Lincoln.
Brady Allen – Purdue
The skinny: The true freshman was considered the prize of Purdue’s Class of 2022 recruiting class, but after head coach Jeff Brohm made the move to Louisville, Allen decided to enter the portal.
Recruiting: This now looks like a two-horse race between Ole Miss, which is hosting him this weekend on an official visit, and Purdue. Yes, the Boilermakers have become a realistic option as a return to West Lafayette is quite possible.
Connor Bazelak - Indiana
The skinny: Bazelak began his collegiate career with Missouri before transferring to Indiana last January. During his collegiate career he has passed for 7,370 yards and 36 touchdowns, while in his one season with the Hoosiers he passed for 2,312 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Recruiting: Unlike the top three on this list, Bazelak’s process has been a bit quieter to this point. A few of the schools to keep an eye on include UConn, North Texas and Ball State.
Chandler Rogers – Louisiana-Monroe
The skinny: Rogers began his collegiate career at Southern Miss, before making his way to Blinn College (JUCO) and then Louisiana-Monroe. During his two seasons with the Warhawks, Rogers passed for 3,714 yards and 24 touchdowns. He has also rushed for 720 yards and six touchdowns during this time. He saw marked improvement during the 2022 season with 2,403 yards and 15 touchdowns.
Recruiting: Rogers has picked up offers from Cal, Indiana, Liberty, Arkansas State, Georgia State, Texas State, Sam Houston and Jacksonville State since entering the portal in late November as a grad transfer.
