Anticipate absolute madness as more players make moves, shaping the landscape of college football in unexpected ways!
Cam Ward arguably becomes the biggest name in college football transfer portal
Since announcing his intent to transfer from Washington State, Cam Ward has become the most popular name in the transfer portal.
This season with the Cougars, Ward completed 323 out of 485 passes (66.6% completion rate), amassing 3,735 yards, 25 touchdowns, and seven interceptions.
Ward's arm strength is impressive, as he can effortlessly throw a deep ball downfield and is a threat outside the pocket. His accuracy on the run can dip, but the exciting big plays he creates while improvising make up for it.
Looking ahead, many teams, including Ohio State, USC, Washington, Oregon, and more, are in need of a new quarterback next year, making Ward a sought-after prospect.
With Washington State and Nebraska both out of Bowl Games this season, a potential move for Ward to the Cornhuskers could happen any day now.
