Quincy Roche is the top transfer for the defensive end position. Roche is the player that is a little bit smaller for his position at 6’4” which is great height, but he will rely on his speed to get around the edge as he is light weight at 235 pounds. Roche is coming into Miami Florida as an immediate starter.
Fabien Lovett is coming into Florida State as the top rated defensive tackle transfer. Lovett has the size that will really help him out at Florida State. Lovett has the right size at 6’3” and 330 pounds, which is a fire plug size that will stop the middle.
Jabril Cox is heading into LSU this year to play football at the outside linebacker position. Cox does have a lot of skill that will help him out in LSU and the SEC this season. Cox comes into the game here at 6’3” and 233 pounds, but will definitely make it to the edges this year.
Playing the inside linebacker position as the top transfer at that position that is heading to Western Kentucky in Will Ignont. Ignont is heading into the year playing at the 6’1” and 225 pounds. Look for his impact to be huge, but he probably will not be as big an impact nationwide as Western Kentucky is not that big of a school.
Otis Reese is coming into the game here after transferring to Ole Miss. The prospect is heading into Ole Miss with a decent coverage skills and a good chance to stop the run. Reese is coming into the season standing at 6’3” and 205 pounds which is a good size for a safety.
Nick McCloud is one of the top transfers for cornerback and is coming into Notre Dame where he could really make an impact almost right away. McCloud is coming out of NC State where he was a good prospect. McCloud is heading into Notre Dame at 6’1”, but his weight could be a challenge to fill the holes in the run at 175 pounds.
