Oklahoma Sooners QB Dillon Gabriel Enters Transfer Portal
Gabriel was one of the most exciting quarterbacks in college football this year. He had 3,660 yards passing with 30 touchdowns and six interceptions. He led the Sooners to some huge wins including one over rival Texas. He posted a thank you to the Sooners program on social media this morning. He joins a long list of quarterbacks that are looking for new programs.
Tons Of Quarterback Options
It is absolutely mind-boggling how many quarterbacks are looking for new programs. The new era of college football is upon us and this is most likely something we will have to get used to. With NIL opportunities, players are often looking for better opportunities. Gabriel made a name for himself last season and the price for a starting quarterback in the transfer portal seems to be a couple of million dollars. He immediately becomes one of the most coveted players, especially for a program that already has a high-powered offense.
The Oklahoma Sooners will have to figure out the quarterback position for 2024. There are plenty of options in the portal or they may decide to start a young player already on the roster. After the dust settles in the offseason it will be interesting to see how this all shakes out.
