There is no graduate transfer portal, per se. Even before the the establishment of the national transfer database (the “portal”) and the passage of the rule allowing football players a one time transfer without having to sit for a year, players who had graduated prior to expiration of their four year eligibility (within the five year time frame that began when they started classes or participated in an organized team activity) could be graduate students somewhere and exhaust their eligibility. Cameron Nizialek - as you know - is a good pre-portal IL example: got his degree from Columbia, had a year of eligibility left and then did year at UGA where he went from playing in front of maybe a few thousand to over 100.000. They’re conventionally known as “grad transfers,” but it’s kind of a misnomer is my mind because you’re not really transferring from a school that you’ve already technically graduated from.

My understanding is that the (only) Transfer Portal reports indicate: sport, class status (undergrad or graduate), transfering school, and years of remaining eligibility.

I believe that players can only use the portal one time (essentially a waiver of their NLI agreement).

I am not aware of any grad transfers playing for more than one graduate season. Grad transfers must be accepted and enroll in their new graduate program.

I appreciate any corrections or insights from other Voy contributors.

Cornell offensive lineman Hunter Nourzad entered the NCAA Transfer Portal in late November and has seen a steady stream of interest ever since. On Friday, Penn State offensive line coach Phil Trautwein came through with an offer for the First-Team All-Ivy League selection.

Nourzad played both tackle spots and started the final 20 games of his Cornell career. He also played center in practice and he plans to play on the interior at his final stop. He was a Second-Team All-Ivy League selection as a sophomore in 2019 and did not play in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. He’ll graduate from Cornell in May with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and have two years of eligibility remaining. He was also an Academic All-Ivy League selection in 2021 and played for former Penn State graduate assistant Sean Cascarano, who is the offensive line coach at Cornell.

The Nittany Lions join an offer list that includes Illinois, Kansas, Louisville, Nebraska, Northwestern, Purdue, Syracuse, Temple and Tulane. Penn State went the Ivy League route last offseason when it added All-Ivy guard Eric Wilson for the 2021 season. Wilson started 11 games for the Nittany Lions at left guard in the fall.

My error
I intended to say that the transfer would void the National Letter signed with the original scholarship offering school.

The bottom line on an NLI is that when a player signs an NLI they’re agreeing to go to that school for a year, and the school is agreeing to pay for that year. It is a one year renewable agreement. The program makes the determination whether or not to renew that agreement.
A player can transfer one time (including mid-year) and be immediately eligible to play. They can certainly transfer a second time, but they don’t necessarily have immediate eligibility in that circumstance.

Harv OL Liam Shanahan played three years before graduating.

He entered LSU as a grad student [MBA, I think] last year, starting at center [#56] in his fourth year of football. Because the NCAA awarded an extra year of eligibility to those playing last year, he is in the second year of the MBA program and still starting at center during his fifth season.
