Clemson QB Taisun Phommachanh, WR Frank Ladson enter NCAA transfer portal

Clemson wide receiver Frank Ladson and quarterback Tyson Fomachane entered the NCAA transfer portal, Sources told 247Sports. Both players have been valuable depth cuts for the Tigers in the past two years.

Phommachanh has seen a career high in playtime this year as rookie DJ Uiagalelei has seen his fair share of struggles. Fomachanh has spelled the young quarterback in six games, completing 11 passes for 131 yards and one touchdown for one interception. He also ran an extra 69 yards and one touchdown.

The former four-star recruit saw the most action against South Carolina, when he completed seven passes for 75 yards and one touchdown. He signed with Clemson in 2019 from Bridgeport (Connecticut) Avon Old Farms High School. Composite 247Sports ranked him as the number 214 potential player nationally, the number 4 double-threat midfielder and the number 2 potential player in Connecticut.

Ladson battled injuries in 2020 to start four games with the Tigers and put together a decent stat streak of 18 passes for 281 yards and three touchdowns. His production has seen a sharp decline this year, appearing in Clemson’s first five games before suffering an injury at the end of the season. At this range he managed four catches for 19 yards.

For his career, Ladson has 27 catch points for 409 yards and five touchdowns. The South Dade High School producer in Miami (Florida) was in the same signature category as Phommachanh and ranked as the #65th future national and #7 future at 247Sports Composite. Ludson will have two years of eligibility, while Fumachane will have three years.

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.
