And let us all remember, a young man can step in the portal, but give it some more thought, and come back out again on our side, as Garland did.
Ryan Johnson has really struggled... not to say he can’t improve but when he was playing a lot of snaps a year or two ago we had an awful oline that was getting abused.... him, Tatum, Richmond, and others were part of one of the worst olines in VOLS history....

So if he goes it’s bc he’s just getting passed up by better players so that makes sense... but if he sticks around and improves then maybe he can play and help some??? I can understand it either way...

But Means? He just got here... really hope he stays...

They can enter the transfer portal but not considered gone officially though. I remember someone backed out and stayed with the team earlier this year.

And the most important thing to remember is once they are actually listed into the transfer portal their "old team" is free to move their scholarship to another recruit/player and they no longer have any obligation to the player short of ensuring that their current semester is funded. IF the player decides to stay at their current school ( or don't have any suitors for their talents) after entering transfer portal its at the discretion of the staff to accept them back. The transfer portal put a lot of the power of getting playing time in the players hands but also balanced it with the player better be danged sure he doesn't want to just kick the tires because he might not have a landing spot.

Great kid. But, he has no business on an SEC OL according to my untrained eyes.
