The spring college football transfer portal window has closed, and now it’s time to evaluate how the game’s most notable programs fared. We’ve already taken a look at things like winners and losers, top-10 classes and best fits.

There is a mathematic calculation of the 2024 Transfer Rankings at 247Sports (where Ole Miss and Texas A&M are Nos. 1 and 2). We are taking into account whether the team filled its needs, got a good bang for its NIL buck, and how it managed its roster when constructing these grades.
