The SEC continues to have some of the most talented recruiting classes in all of college football. With all of that talent comes a high level of competition. Because of the intense environment, we see more and more players entering the transfer portal.
Here are some of the best SEC players who have entered the portal this season:
LJ Johnson – Texas A&M
Aggies running back LJ Johnson enters the portal after two seasons with Texas A&M ranked as a four-star recruit.
During his first season as an Aggie, he finished with 21 carries for 76 yards.
This season, he recorded 10 carries for 39 yards and two touchdowns.
Tommy Brockermeyer – Alabama
Offensive tackle Tommy Brockermeyer was the No. 2 prospect in the 2021 ESPN 300 and was the No. 1 offensive tackle prospect in his recruiting class.
His father, Blake Brockermeyer, was an All-American at UT and played nine seasons in the NFL. Tommy Brockermeyer chose the Tide over Auburn, Clemson, Michigan, Notre Dame, and Texas when coming out of high school.
Brockermeyer played just two career games with the Crimson Tide.
Luke Altmyer – Ole Miss
Sophomore quarterback Luke Altmyer has seen limited action during his time with the Rebels, although he has three touchdowns and three interceptions.
247Sports currently ranks Altmyer as it’s No. 20 player in the transfer portal.
