Buffalo’s Dylan McDuffie enters NCAA Transfer Portal after 1,000-yard season

Buffalo running back Dylan McDuffy The sources said that his name entered his name in the transfer portal. McDuffie, a native of Buffalo, was a three-star recruit and was No. 133 in the signature class of 2018, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. McDuffie broke out in 2021, his fourth year with the Bulls, and is now exploring other options.

In his first three seasons with Buffalo, McDuffie hit 124 yards, but he took his chance last fall. He carried the ball 2017 times for 1,052 yards and 11 touchdowns. These numbers should be attractive to any team looking to help out on their back court for the 2022 season.

After graduating from high school, McDuffie received scholarship offers from programs such as Central Michigan, Liberty, Ohio, Western Michigan, and a number of FCS schools.

The NCAA introduced the transfer portal on October 15, 2018, providing athletes with a path to explore their options. Players do not need to ask permission from their coaching staff in order to move. They only need to request compliance by entering their name. Usually, it takes 24 to 48 hours for a player to appear at their request. Schools are free to contact the player without restrictions once their name appears in the portal.

While a player entering his name into the transfer portal means that he intends to explore his options, this does not necessarily mean that he will leave. The player is free to withdraw his name at any time. However, schools are not obligated to keep the player in the scholarship once they enter the portal.

Sources said that 2,646 FBS players entered the transfer portal during the 2020-2021 transfer cycle. This is up from 1,692 in 2019-20 and 1,717 in 2018-19.

This increase can be attributed at least in part to a new NCAA policy that allows student-athletes to transition once in their careers without having to sit for a year in residence. This means that all players who enter the transfer portal for the first time will be immediately eligible at their new school as long as they meet the NCAA deadline for entry.
