Arizona State Brings Big Time Talent Back Home Through The Transfer Portal

The state of college football is a lot different now with players having the ability to make money off of their own likeness, which is better known as NIL.

Another reason the landscape of college football has changed is the transfer portal. Players can transfer and play at their new school right away. The rule used to be that players could transfer but had to sit out a full season before being eligible to play.

Arizona State, just like most college football programs has taken full advantage of the new rules. The Sun Devils have brought back lots of home grown talent through the portal.

Offensive lineman, Bram Walden is a red shirt junior who originally went to the University of Oregon. The Scottsdale native could be a huge part of a turn around for the program.

Wide receiver, Jake Smith is also from Scottsdale. He went to Notre Dame Prep before spending time at Texas and USC prior to coming to Arizona State for his last season of eligibility.

Defensive back. Cole Martin played in all 14 games as a true freshman for Oregon this past season. This is a huge pick up for Arizona State.

Defensive lineman, Tristan Monday is also from Scottsdale. Monday started his collegiate career at the University of Wisconsin and now is a red shirt sophomore for the Sun Devils.

Linebacker, Krew Jackson is a red shirt junior originally from Queen Creek. Jackson played at Kansas State before transferring to Arizona State.

The state of Arizona is full of high school talent and a key to Arizona State becoming one of the best programs in the country is keeping home grown talent in state.
