Georgia LB Xavian Sorey Jr. plans to enter the transfer portal, he tells On3.

The 6’3 225 LB will have 2 years of eligibility remaining.

Sorey sent a message to On3:

I am immensely proud to have been a part of the University of Georgia Bulldog family for the past three years.

I have had the opportunity to learn from some of the best coaches, played with the best players, and been supported by the best fanbase in college football.

And though I will forever cherish the magic between the hedges, I have decided to enter the transfer portal.

Thank you Coach Smart and the entire Bulldog organization for cultivating a winning mentality within our team and showing us what it takes to be champions.

Transfer portal background information

The NCAA Transfer Portal, which covers every NCAA sport at the Division I, II and III levels, is a private database with names of student-athletes who wish to transfer. It is not accessible to the public.

The process of entering the portal is done through a school’s compliance office. Once a player provides written notification of an intent to transfer, the office enters the player’s name in the database and everything is off and running. The compliance office has 48 hours to comply with the player’s request and that request cannot be refused.

Once a player’s name shows up in the portal, other schools can contact the player. Players can change their minds at any point and withdraw from the portal. However, once a player enters the portal, the current scholarship no longer has to be honored. In other words, if a player enters the portal but decides to stay, the school is not obligated to provide a scholarship anymore.

The database is a normal database, sortable by a variety of topics, including (of course) sport and name. A player’s individual entry includes basic details such as contact info, whether the player was on scholarship and whether the player is transferring as a graduate student.

A player can ask that a “do not contact” tag be placed on the report. In those instances, the players don’t want to be contacted by schools unless they’ve initiated the communication.
