The highest graded football transfer for every Sun Belt team in 2022.

June Content can be pretty awful, and you’re invited to judge this content for what it’s worth – a guy curating somebody else’s hard collected data to gain some summertime clicks. Listen, I didn’t invent society. I’m merely a product of it. Many thanks goes to the hardworking people of 24/7 for crunching the numbers.

Just peeking into the portals, you can see that Southern Miss, South Bama and Marshall were busy picking up guys, while Louisiana, ULM and Georgia Southern were losing a pile of guys. And numbers don’t tell the entire tale. Marshall wins this exercise by scoring a five-star RB, but that grade was given out of high school – in 2017. Khalan Laborn, formerly of Florida State, busted his kneecap in 2018, saw some action in 2019 (297 yards and four touchdowns) and then was unceremoniously punted off the team for breaking team rules. Will he contribute for The Herd? Will any of these guys contribute? Who knows? None of last year’s top transfers really stand out to me. (Though James Blackman did make a number of starts for Arkansas State.)

Along with Marshall’s Laborn, two additional transfers cross the 24/7 “.9000” threshold: Myron Warren (DL) of Texas State, Peter Costelli (QB) of Troy, Nathan Rawlins-Kibonge
(Edge) of South Alabama and King Mwikuta (DL) of Arkansas State. They’re probably the best, right?
