The transfer portal is changing college sports like nothing has in recent memory.
You have players moving from school to school like they are some professional free agent.
But one top college quarterback got totally destroyed by his old teammates after he entered the transfer portal.
Remember back in the days where college sports at least tried to fake it to make it look like the athletes were at an institution to learn and become productive alumni.
Well, those days are long gone.
Now, many players are getting massive NIL (name, image, and likeness) deals to fatten their pocket.
In the 3 weeks since transferring to USC, QB Caleb Williams has:
➖ Signed a licensing deal with Fanatics
➖ Signed an NIL deal with Beats by Dre
➖ Become the face of AC+ION water
➖ Joined a real estate private equity fund
➖ Become part-owner of a men’s grooming company pic.twitter.com/m3UppM8QVi

And the transfer portal has taken the college sports world by storm as those players that aren’t getting buckets of money are trying to find a school where they can get rich quick.

But one college football transfer found out the hard way that making moves just for yourself doesn’t always lead to rainbows and unicorns.
Jayden Daniels has been a pretty decent quarterback for Arizona State with over 2,000 yards passing and ten touchdown passes against big time opponents.
So, the junior decided to look for greener pastures and entered the transfer portal.
But his old teammates at Arizona State were having none of it.
And when they heard the news about their old quarterback, they literally raided his locker.
You just have to see the video.
It doesn’t look like Jayden Daniels ASU teammates are real pleased with his decision to enter the transfer portal. pic.twitter.com/eElvZSErkv

The transfer portal will continue to drain teams of talent unless more stories like this hit the press.
