The Highest-Rated Transfer for Every Sun Belt Team for 2021

NOTE: Since this article posted, Scooby Carter is no longer a transfer for Arkansas State.

Choo-Chooo! All aboard the June Content Train! Choooooooo!

Listen, I don’t pick the months. I barely pick the content. You’re just gonna have to eat what I serve, and today it’s me spending about 45 minutes determining the highest ranked transfer player for each Sun Belt team. Just mail me my Pulitzer.

I got all excited about Butch Jones’ scoop-up of former Alabama corner Scooby Carter, a five or four star talent, defending on the grading service. Because it’s Friday, and a certain NWA baseball team is getting all the attention, I decided to see who else in the Sun Belt is Portal Poach’n.

According to 24/7, some in the Sun Belt have been busy. Others, not so much. Terry Bowden and the Warhawks are seeing more transfers taking the bus out of Monroe than in. However, even ULM has snagged some college football malcontents.

I used the 24/7 Sports composite score, in case you’re wondering. I hope 24/7 Sports doesn’t mind. If they do, I refer them to my lawyer. In the meantime, I want to stress upon you that 24/7’s data isn’t always perfect, nor is it always complete. Perhaps I missed a stud transfer for Coastal or Appalachian State. For that, I’m almost sorry.
