Kind of how I viewed it as well. I wouldn’t think Hooker would jump but we’re about to see a day where coaches have to rerecruit every year to retain their own players.
Don’t see it. Hooker put up great numbers here. He can go elsewhere and put up terrible numbers. It would be an idiotic decision.

With Caleb Willams testing the portal waters it wouldn't shock me to see just about every P5 starter & star players use this tactic from now on. Hooker would force UT to find him a deal for big money. It's crazy & wild but hey they earn it so more power to them. I don't pay it so why care?
Anyone QB having a lot of success in their current system would be pretty foolish to risk changing schools over NIL money, especially if they have hopes of being drafted in the top 2 rounds.

Williams entered the portal because Riley is gone. And I wouldn't be surprised to see him follow Riley to USC. I know the money is there, but I can't for the life of me understand why any elite QB would go to UGA. Kirby has proven without a shadow of a doubt that he can't develop elite QBs. Five star after five star, and they ride the pine in favor of walk-ons who are game managers.

Hooker won't hit the portal but don't be surprised if Tayven Jackson puts up a good year or two after Hooker is done and looks at the portal.

It seems to be the trend for a QB to look at a transfer after having a decent year or two. Jackson may wait, like Hooker and Milton did, to transfer as grads but it seems to be a trend.

You can transfer as many times as your eligibility allows. Gotta sit out after the first, unless you drop a division or get a waiver.
Yeah I meant one time without sitting a year.

Hooker has already done that. Only has one more year left. Already 23 years old. How dumb would it be to transfer again, sit for a year to play one more then go into the draft at 25?

OP was off his rocker.

This post is ridiculous and a waste of everyone's time. You must just not have anything better to do. Try Porn Hub, might keep you busy 30 seconds or so.

He's had his best season of his life in Heupels system and will only be better next year. Put down the pipe.

i do see what the OP is saying. i would've worded it differenlty. but in this new era of cfb, i wouldnt be surprised to see highly prolific players "testing the waters" to see what other schools can offer them through NIL deals. Tank Bigsby has already shown us that you can go into the transfer portal, listen to other schools, then pull out the portal if nothing really interests you.
Except you don't have to enter the portal to hear NiL offers.

This entire theory is bunk.
