With more than 1,000 college football players in the transfer portal, it can be difficult to parse through all the talent. But PFF's advanced stats for 354 teams ranging from the FBS to Division III aim to do exactly that.
Transfer Destination: Georgia Bulldogs
Lovett was quietly one of the best receivers in college football this season. His 83.7 grade ranked fourth among Power Five receivers.
Lovett averaged 2.94 yards per route run, tied for the seventh-best figure in the Power Five. And he did that as just a true sophomore, meaning the best could be yet to come.

Lovett will stay in the SEC next season, as he’s transferring to Georgia.
2. Tez Johnson (Troy Trojans)
Transfer Destination: Undecided
Johnson was the fifth-most-valuable wide receiver in the country this season, according to PFF’s wins above average metric.
His 89.9 grade this season trailed only Marvin Harrison Jr. among all FBS receivers. The sophomore averaged 3.52 yards per route run, which ranked second among the same group. Johnson’s 5-foot-10, 150-pound build may scare some teams off, but make no mistake: He can play.
A future name to get familiar with is Troy WR Tez Johnson. He plays big for his size and has great acceleration! Move him around and get him the ball and watch him work. (@tezMania15 ) pic.twitter.com/pvvyIYb96C

Cephas missed three games this season due to injury, but he was one of the most efficient receivers in the country when on the field. His 3.12 yards per route run ranked seventh in the FBS this year.
He’s dangerous with the ball in his hands, as well. Cephas’ 421 receiving yards after contact since last season ranks 10th among all receivers in college football. He’s also a big-play threat, as his 49 catches of 15-plus yards since 2021 also ranks 10th in the nation.

Transfer Destination: USC Trojans
Singer walked on at Arizona as a zero-star recruit coming out of high school. Two years later, he is one of the Power Five’s most productive receivers and should have no shortage of scholarship offers.
His 1,105 receiving yards this season were the fifth most in the Power Five. The sophomore also made 29 catches of 15-plus yards, tied for fifth most in the Power Five. Now, he’ll link up with reigning Heisman-winning quarterback Caleb Williams at USC.
OH MY GOD! Dorian Singer with one of the best catches you'll see this season for the 23 yard TD! Arizona leads USC 7-3! pic.twitter.com/YdVtClGAoF

After an excellent two seasons at Old Dominion, Jennings will travel 300 miles west to play for Virginia Tech, a team that's very familiar with his game.
