Josh Jackson starting QB but got injured this year.  4 players have transferred in the last 2 days at VT.

Yeah, he was the starter but broke his leg in the middle of the 2018 season. It will be interesting to see where he ends up. He was 11-5 as a starter and threw 25 TDs and 10 INTs during his career there.

Not sure.  I asked Falk about Pep, he acted surprised I was inquiring.  I saw someone else on here compared the Pep situation to TD 2 years ago.  It's funny, but it also feels almost spot on.  Based on the little intel I have the money seems to be biggest thing keeping him here.  

One other interesting thing is Falk was very close with GM and his family (which all lives in Michigan).  He is visibly hurt/confused about Matty.  No sources on this, but I feel strongly that something happened not reported yet.

Transfers only left they never came. Mostly because of 25 man classes year after year plus redshirts. Totally Saban’d with 125 recruits by year 5. ‘Cruit, Cut, Repeat! The NCAA mgoblog was always whining about how dirty I was as a coach. I would fill my championship cup up with their tears every time i felt a thirst coming on.

I thought Lloyd putting Henson in was a crime (back then, and in retrospect) because Henson hadn't earned it yet.   At various points Brady credited that battle as a contributing factor as to what made him the GOAT.  I get transferring if you're never going to get to play where you are at, but you need to compete to be a competitor.   Weird that Jackson is transferring.

One of the more impressive high school players I've seen in person. Absolutely tore defenses apart at Saline. Hopefully he lands on his feet somewhere.

If I missed it I cannot find a link to it so, has anyone like Magnus, etc. done any articles on available portal guys that would fit at Michigan, based on anticipating needs? I saw the DT from OSU by way of IMG (Barrow?) and thought that would be worth taking.

During his recruitment I can’t remember who said it (amazingly it wasn’t Fred) but one recruiting insider said he had the best chance of that QB class to be the next Marcus Mariota.

...and it's the most dramatic transfer ever.  Like Shea Patterson or Russell Wilson's transfer, but even more so!  This is basically Tom Brady transferring, only better.  You'll need at least two cold beverages while you're processing this one.
