The college football transfer portal officially opened on December 4, and a ton of names entered the portal this time around.

A ton of players have entered and found new homes, and after the New Year's Six games, a flurry of others (including a mass exodus of Alabama players) decided to enter the portal.

So, who is in the transfer portal and where have they decided to go?

Here's a tracker of the biggest names to enter the transfer portal (and a few noteworthy additions):

Top players in this year's transfer portal

Here are the best players in this year's college football transfer portal in one tracker.

Ole Miss RB Quinshon Judkins: The Ole Miss star rushed for 1,052 yards with 15 touchdowns last season for the Rebels and decided to enter the portal on January 4 in a surprising move. This is a big blow to Lane Kiffin's team. And, shortly after Michigan became national champions, he announced his commitment to Ohio State.

Texas QB Maalik Murphy: Murphy entered the transfer portal amid expectations that Quinn Ewers and Arch Manning will return to the Longhorns. Murphy had tons of suitors and even made a trio of visits recently. According to reports, he has verbally committed to Duke.

Arkansas QB KJ Jefferson: Jefferson's name floated in plenty of rumors, but after the Razorbacks landed Taylen Green, Jefferson decided to enter the portal. Now, despite Miami's interest, he is headed for UCF.

USC QB Malachi Nelson: The heir apparent to Caleb Williams is no more, and the five-star recruit is now in the portal as Lincoln Riley has his eyes set on the transfer market. In a surprising move, Nelson is headed for Boise State.

Liberty QB Kaidon Salter: The Liberty signal-caller threw for 2,750 yards with 31 touchdowns and rushed for another 1,064 yards and 12 scores and is a late addition but a fascinating talent that should warrant a ton of consideration. However, Salter withdrew his name and will return to Liberty.

USC WR Dorian Singer: The former Arizona WR transferred to USC last year after leading the Pac-12, and his production decreased with a ton of other weapons on the Trojans offense. He had just 276 yards and three touchdowns, and now he is joining Utah.

Purdue OLD/EDGE Nic Scourton: Scourton was the Big Ten sack leader and is the latest big name to enter the portal. After a few visits, Scourton is now headed for Texas A&M.

Florida Atlantic QB Casey Thompson: Thompson has spent time at Texas, Nebraska, and FAU, and now he enters the transfer portal after tearing his ACL.

Oklahoma QB Dillon Gabriel: The Sooners QB spent three years at UCF before transferring to Oklahoma as Caleb Williams' replacement and performed well. He should be the top quarterback on the market unless he reverses course and heads for the NFL Draft. Gabriel is now headed for Oregon to replace Heisman Trophy candidate Bo Nix.

Arkansas RB Raheim “Rocket” Sanders: The Razorbacks running back entered and then transferred to South Carolina.

Duke QB Riley Leonard: Duke HC Mike Elko dashed for the Texas A&M job, and days later, Leonard entered. After Notre Dame was rumored to be the favorite over and over, Leonard officially announced his decision to go to South Bend in an epic video.

Toledo QB Dequan Finn: Finn was named the MAC Player of the Year and has 88 touchdowns during his career with the Rockets. One of the top signal-callers on the market lands with Baylor.

Oregon State QB Aidan Chiles: The talented freshman entered the portal and then decided to follow Jonathan Smith to Michigan State, which was the expectation all along.

UTSA EDGE Trey Moore: Moore suddenly becomes the top defensive player in the portal. He was named the AAC Defensive Player of the Year after recording 45 tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss, and 14 sacks. He had a visit with Alabama and has been rumored for plenty of other big programs. In the end, he decided to play for the Texas Longhorns.

Stanford TE Benjamin Yurosek: Yurosek is one of the later additions to the portal but is arguably the best tight end on the market.

Texas A&M DL Walter Nolen: After rumors swirled. Nolen officially entered the transfer portal. He was the No. 1 recruit in the 2022 class per ESPN and is now headed to play for Lane Kiffin at Ole Miss.

San Jose State LT Fernando Carmona: The OL tackle market will be busy, especially with the number of offensive stars in the portal. Carmona was one of the best in the Group of Five and is an underrated talent. He is now headed to Arkansas.

Boise State QB Taylen Green: Green led the Broncos to a Mountain West title as he and Maddux Madsen split time this season. Green threw for 1,752 yards with 11 touchdowns. He decided to transfer to Arkansas.

Ohio State QB Kyle McCord: The Buckeyes signal-caller beat out Devin Brown in the summer, but Ohio State lost to Michigan and missed out on the Big Ten title game. After turning down Nebraska despite a visit to Omaha, he heads for Syracuse in a massive get for new head coach Fran Brown.

Ohio State RB Chip Trayanum: The former Arizona State transfer now looks for another program after playing behind TreVeyon Henderson and Miyan Williams. Trayanum is headed for the Kentucky Wildcats.

Florida RB Trevor Etienne: Yes, Trevor is the younger brother of Travis Etienne, and he immediately becomes one of, if not the top, running backs in the transfer portal. The Georgia Bulldogs have now landed the explosive running back.

Tulane WR Chris Brazzell: Tulane HC Willie Fritz got hired at Houston, and Brazzell is one of what should be an exodus of players from Tulane. He caught 44 passes for 711 yards and five scores in 2023. He is now headed to Tennessee.

Colorado TE Michael Harrison: Harrison was one of a few players remaining from the 1-11 Karl Dorrell team, and he emerged as an offensive weapon for Shedeur Sanders. He is following his former offensive coordinator Sean Lewis to San Diego State after he was named the Aztecs' head coach.

Washington State QB Cameron Ward: Ward entered the portal to the surprise of nobody and is arguably one of the top players on the market. After plenty of rumors, Ward officially declared for the 2024 NFL Draft. Them out of nowhere, Ward changed his mind and decided to play for the Miami Hurricanes.

Arizona State QB Drew Pyne: The Sun Devils signal-caller spent just one year after previously playing at Notre Dame. He is returning to Notre Dame to graduate and will play for another program after graduation.

Alabama QB Tyler Buchner: The surprising thing about Buchner's transfer is he is going to play Lacrosse at his next school.

South Carolina WR Juice Wells: Wells played just a handful of games in 2023 due to an injury, but he posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons before that and has a ton of talent. He is headed for Ole Miss, who also returned a ton of talent on offense.

UCLA QB Dante Moore: Moore was a five-star recruit who originally committed to Oregon before flipping to UCLA. After one year, and the Bruins' decision to bring back Chip Kelly, he is in the portal. There has already been plenty of Michigan and Michigan State buzz for Moore. In the end, however, Moore opted to join Oregon.

Oregon State QB DJ Uiagalelei: Uiagalelei was at Clemson before going to Oregon State, and he played well in his lone season in Corvallis. But, Jonathan Smith leaving for the Michigan State job opened the way for his departure. He is now going to play for Florida State.

Miami (FL) QB Tyler Van Dyke: Van Dyke is another quarterback that could've dashed for the NFL, but he also decided to enter the portal. The Hurricanes' 7-5 season wasn't enough for him to stay in Miami. He has decided to play for Luke Fickell and the Wisconsin Badgers.

Kansas State QB Will Howard: Howard is a grad transfer. He is headed to Ohio State to replace Kyle McCord, who went to Syracuse.

Coastal Carolina QB Grayson McCall: The Chanticleers signal-caller is on the move, and has decided to play for NC State after taking a visit early on with the Wolfpack.

Florida International WR Kris Mitchell: Mitchell might not be the biggest known name. But, he had 1,118 yards and seven scores on 64 catches this past season. In a stunning move, he headed for South Bend and committed to Notre Dame.

USC RB/WR Raleek Brown: Brown didn't play much this year for an offensively-loaded Trojans team, and he is now headed to Arizona State as they make the move to the Big 12 Conference. He took a visit there previously.

Baylor QB Blake Shapen: The Bears starter in 2022 missed four games with an injury this season and is on the move. He has now committed to Mississippi State.

Mississippi State QB Will Rogers: The Bulldogs hired Jeff Lebby as the new head coach and shortly after, Rogers entered the portal. He was reportedly heading to the Washington Huskies. However, once Kalen DeBoer got hired at Alabama, Rogers re-entered the portal.

NC State QB MJ Morris: Morris decided to redshirt after leading the Wolfpack to some wins, so his decision to enter the portal was expected. He is now headed to Maryland.

Notre Dame OL Zeke Correll: The Irish have lost a lot of players in the transfer portal, and Correll is joining the NC State Wolfpack.

Texas A&M QB Max Johnson: Johnson entered the portal right away after Jimbo Fisher was fired and then committed to North Carolina as the likely replacement for Drake Maye as the Tar Heels QB heads for the NFL Draft.

Purdue WR Deion Burks: The Boilermakers season was disappointing, and Burks is the top receiver in the portal at the moment. He finished the year with 47 catches for 629 yards and seven scores. He is now headed for Oklahoma.

Boise State WR Eric McAlister: The Broncos sophomore had 47 catches for 873 yards and five scores and will draw plenty of interest. He reportedly joined TCU.

Clemson WR Beaux Collins: The Tigers won eight games, which is disappointing for other standards. Collins entered the portal and finished his Clemson career with 1,290 yards and 11 scores on 91 catches during his time. Collins also headed to Notre Dame, forming a huge WR duo with FIU transfer Kris Mitchell.

Kansas State RB Treshaun Ward: The former Florida State RB spent one year at Kansas State and has 17 touchdowns in his career and is one of the top backs on the market.

Notre Dame WR Chris Tyree: Tyree finished with 484 yards and three touchdowns and can do it all on offense. He has now committed to play at Virginia.
