Colorado QB Sam Noyer enters transfer portal

Colorado starting quarterback Sam Noyer has entered the transfer portal with one year of eligibility remaining.

Noyer, who earned second-team All-Pac-12 honors in 2020, informed the school Monday of his decision. Noyer entered the portal after the 2019 season but decided to stay after Karl Dorrell was named the new coach.

“I’ve obviously enjoyed my time here at CU, and deciding to come back here was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made,” Noyer said in a statement released by the school. “The season was everything I thought it would be and more. But at the same time, I didn’t finish the season well, partly due to my shoulder injury. So now I’m looking forward to a new opportunity and a fresh start, a place where they need a veteran quarterback who has the added experience of playing on both sides of the ball.”

Noyer started all six games for the Buffaloes last season, leading them to a 4-2 record and a bowl berth. He passed for 1,101 yards with six touchdowns and seven interceptions.

He was also the Buffaloes’ second-leading rusher, averaging 4.0 yards per carry for 208 yards with five touchdowns.

Kansas CB Karon Prunty enters transfer portal

Kansas sophomore cornerback Karon Prunty announced Sunday he is entering the NCAA transfer portal.

Prunty was an All-Big 12 honorable mention selection as a freshman after starting all nine games for the Jayhawks in 2020 and tallying 26 tackles, nine pass breakups and one interception.

“First, I would like to thank (Kansas defensive backs) coach (Chevis) Jackson and coach Miles for believing in me, and giving me an opportunity to play for the University of Kansas football program and earn an education,” Prunty posted on Twitter. “I made life long friends while I was there and it was a very hard decision to make but I had to make this decision due to personal reasons. With that being said I’ve decided to enter the transfer portal. I want to thank the coaching staff, teammates, academic advisors, and the fans for supporting me since the first day I stepped on campus.”

Prunty was a three-star recruit in the Class of 2020 out of Portsmouth, Va. He chose the Jayhawks over offers from Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Pittsburgh, Richmond, Temple, Charlotte, Liberty and Marshall, according to the Kansas football team’s website.

As a freshman at Georgia, he played in six games and made five tackles. He entered the transfer portal two weeks ago.

Report: QB Jayden George, son of Jeff, enters transfer portal

Alabama backup quarterback Jayden George has put his name in the transfer portal, 247Sports reported Friday.

The son of former NFL quarterback Jeff George, he walked on with the Crimson Tide in 2019. He redshirted his first year on campus and didn’t see action in a game last season.

The 6-foot-3 George played in high school at Warren Central in Indianapolis and led his team to the Indiana Class 6A state championship in 2018.

Former five-star recruit Bryce Young is expected to replace Mac Jones at quarterback for the Crimson Tide.

Jeff George played at Illinois and Purdue before the Indianapolis Colts drafted him No. 1 overall in 1990. He played 12 seasons in the NFL and threw for 27,602 yards with the Colts, Atlanta Falcons, Oakland Raiders, Minnesota Vikings, Washington Redskins, Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Bears.

Former Michigan quarterback Joe Milton has transferred to Tennessee, multiple outlets reported Monday.

While new coach Josh Heupel hasn’t confirmed the move, Tennessee-focused website Volquest confirmed he is listed in the school’s student directory. He is expected to begin classes during the summer semester.

Milton is a graduate transfer but has three years of eligibility remaining. He announced his decision to enter the transfer portal in February on Twitter.

Milton was named the Wolverines starter for 2020 before being replaced by Cade McNamara for the final two games of the season. Milton completed 56.7 percent of his passes for 1,077 yards with four touchdowns and four interceptions.

Michigan finished 2-4 last season.

The Volunteers were 3-7 and fired coach Jeremy Pruitt after the season following an investigation into allegations of recruiting improprieties. The quarterback position never was settled in 2020, with Pruitt using five quarterbacks, each of whom appeared in four or more games.

Jarrett Guarantano, who took most of the snaps for Tennessee last season, transferred to Washington State, and JT Shrout moved on to Colorado. Still, with the addition of Milton, Tennessee’s quarterback room would be a who’s who of former standout high school players, including returnees Harrison Bailey and Brian Maurer, and Virginia Tech transfer Hendon Hooker.

The 6-foot-5 Milton, who is from Florida, was a four-star recruit in the Class of 2018.

Ex-Texas Tech QB Alan Bowman transfers to Michigan

Former Texas Tech quarterback Alan Bowman is transferring to Michigan, he announced Sunday.

“Lets get to work!! #GoBlue,” he captioned a photo he posted on Twitter that showed him wearing a Michigan uniform.

A graduate transfer, he’ll be eligible to play immediately, and he has three years of eligibility remaining.

The arrival of a veteran quarterback should be welcome news to coach Jim Harbaugh.

Joe Milton, who started the 2020 season as Michigan’s quarterback, entered the transfer portal 10 days ago, becoming the second QB to leave the program. Dylan McCaffrey opted out of the 2020 season and since transferred to Northern Colorado, where he’ll play for his father, former NFL receiver Ed McCaffrey.

Bowman becomes the fourth scholarship quarterback on Michigan’s roster, joining Cade McNamara, redshirt freshman Dan Villari and incoming freshman J.J. McCarthy, a five-star prospect in the Class of 2021.

Bowman played in 19 games over three seasons with the Red Raiders. He was the starter for four games in 2020, then replaced by transfer Henry Colombi. A partially collapsed lung in 2018 limited him to eight games, and he played in three games in 2019 before taking a redshirt after suffering a shoulder injury.

At Texas Tech, Bowman had a 67 percent completion rate, throwing for 5,254 yards with 33 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.
