[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image source="featured_image" img_size="large"][vc_column_text]With Gerry Bohanon gone to USF, the best remaining QBs in the portal is a thin list.

1. Jack Sears – Boise State

Portal entry date: 12-1-2021
Grad-transfer: No

Career at USC/Boise State: Sears completed 20 of 28 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns during the one game he played with USC. After transferring to Boise State, he completed 25 of 33 passes for 380 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. While he has only attempted 61 passes during his collegiate career, he has completed 73.8% of his attempts.

Current situation: Sears has been in the portal for more than five months now and has successfully remained quiet about his future. While he only has 61 pass attempts in his collegiate career, his performance during this time should have made him a priority for several programs.

2. Peter Costelli – Utah

Portal entry date: 11-23-2021
Grad-transfer: No

Career at Utah: Costelli entered the portal during his true freshman season at Utah, and before every seeing the field in Salt Lake City.

Current situation: As with Sears, it is odd that Costelli is still in the portal as he had upwards of 20 offers when he committed to the Utes in the spring of 2020. There have been a couple of schools associated with him over the last few months, but nothing has materialized to this point. Virginia Tech was rumored at one point, while now Coastal Carolina is one to watch.

3. Grant Gunnell – Memphis

Portal entry date: 4-29-2022
Grad-transfer: Yes

Career at Arizona/Memphis: At Arizona, Gunnell completed 165 of 248 passes for 1,864 yards, 15 touchdowns and only three interceptions. However, after transferring to Memphis, he did not see the field during the 2021 season due to a right leg injury.

Current situation: Back healthy this spring, Gunnell performed well during camp while battling Seth Henigan, who impressed last season as a true freshman, for the staring job. After only a couple of days in the portal, some of the schools showing serious interest include North Texas, Rice, Temple, New Mexico, Troy, Incarnate Word and Abilene Christian.

4. Taisun Phommachanh – Clemson

Portal entry date: 12-3-2021
Grad-transfer: No

Career at Clemson: Saw spot duty during his three seasons with Clemson. Passed for 204 yards, while rushing for 150 yards, during his time on the field.

Current situation: This is another surprising situation, as one would think that a school would have taken a chance on Phommachanh considering his physical talents and size. So which schools are currently involved? Keep an eye on USF, which has done well in this transfer cycle with Clemson players, as well as New Mexico, Troy, BYU, UTSA, Georgia State, and UMASS.

5. Maverick Mcivor – Texas Tech

Portal entry date: 1-18-2022
Grad-transfer: No

Career at Texas Tech: Mcivor suffered a foot injury during a scrimmage prior to his freshman season with the Red Raiders which required surgery. Upon his healthy return he was never able to make his way up the depth chart and never saw the field in Lubbock.

Current situation: Mcivor was highly regarded coming out of high school, but his lack of on-field experience in recent seasons has slowed his recruiting process since he entered the portal. However, a few of the schools to keep an eye on include UTEP, New Mexico and Troy, plus FCS schools like Northwestern State, Western Illinois, Tennessee Tech and Austin Peay.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
