Here is our ninth set of rankings of college football’s most impactful transfers. This considers all four-year transfers, not just those who changed teams this offseason.
First is an overall transfer ranking; following that are position-by-position breakdowns. These rankings fluctuate weekly.
Among the big movers this week:
+ Florida State RB Trey Benson: With leading rusher Treshaun Ward injured and missing the past two games, Benson – a transfer from Oregon – has stepped up. He had his best game of the season in Saturday’s rout of Georgia Tech, rushing for 111 yards on 18 carries (6.2 yards per carry). Benson has rushed for 180 yards in the past two weeks, which is 37.3 percent of his eight-game total. With Ward apparently set to return this week against Miami, Benson’s production going forward is something to monitor.
+ Ole Miss QB Jaxson Dart: Dart was a key figure in the Rebels’ narrow win at Texas A&M. He rushed for 95 yards and also threw three TD passes (and no picks) in the 31-28 victory. His season passing numbers aren’t what was expected after he transferred from USC, but he has been a bigger-than-most-expected part of the Rebels’ prolific rushing attack all season. Ole Miss rushed for 390 yards against the Aggies.
+ Utah TE Dalton Kincaid: Kincaid, who transferred from FCS member San Diego after the 2019 season, continues to be the Utes’ top receiver. He had seven receptions for 56 yards and a TD as they held off Washington State on Thursday night. Kincaid has 46 receptions for 614 yards and seven TDs; he leads the nation’s tight ends in all three categories.
+ Florida State QB Jordan Travis: Travis, a fifth-year junior who transferred from Louisville after the 2018 season, had a career-high 389 yards of offense and threw three TD passes in the Seminoles’ easy win against Georgia Tech. He was 24-of-38 for a career-high 396 yards in the air; it was his second 300-yard game of the season as well as his second outing with three TD passes.
