TRANSFER PORTAL

Jared Zirkel (University of Georgia)
KO/FG
Objective: wants to grad transfer to another FBS school closer to home in Texas.

Result: Within a few days of entering the transfer portal Jared received 6 full scholarship offers (
Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Indiana, North Texas, Texas State, UIW) and several PWO offers. He made a decision in early December but out of respect to Georgia he waited to officially announce his commitment after the Orange Bowl. In 12/31/23 he made it official and Jared Zirkel is coming back home and will be attending grad school and staying in the SEC to be the next Texas A&M Football kicker.

Seth Ford (West Texas A&M)
Punter (can also be a depth chart QB)
Objective: wants to transfer to a bigger program in a more active city and/or closer to home nearer Austin, TX.

Result: Seth received 4 PWO (preferred walk-on) offers to FBS & FCS schools after entering the portal, and a few weeks later after an awesome on-campus visit and good communication with the Special Teams Coach committed to the University of North Texas on a PWO. 

Sam Renzi (Sacred Heart University)
FG/KO/P
Objective: wants to transfer to a school closer to home in Virginia.

Jonathan Spurlock (Texas A&M-Commerce)
