Cincinnati Bearcats football transfer portal tracker: Who's here, who left? (2024)

With the NCAA college football transfer portal ending May 1, the University of Cincinnati Bearcats have had significant additions and subtractions since their 2023 season ended last Nov. 25.

Between then, the end of spring football and now, 33 players have transferred. While that might sound worrisome, it's fairly common at this juncture of unstructured free agency. Coach Scott Satterfield's staff has replenished his roster with 20 college transfers since then, in addition to 21 high school signees, 10 of which early enrolled to participate in spring practice.

These numbers can change as UC can still add to the roster so long as the player was entered into the portal by May 1. Here is the latest Satterfield scorecard:

How it sits with Satt?

"The way things are nowadays, things change every 30 minutes in this era that we're in," Satterfield said. "Our job now is to keep the key guys that you need on your team and then add a few that can come in and fit the culture. I'm not going to add guys just to add. We've got to add the right guys."
