As we continue to approach the start of the 2021 football season, players on the move via the transfer portal will continue to find new homes.

Former LSU running back Tre Bradford may be ready to become an Oklahoma Sooner.

The 6-foot, 190-pound former four-star signee in 2020 contributed 58 yards rushing and tallied three catches with one touchdown in 2020 as a true freshman. The Lancaster, Texas native brings enticing receiving skils out of the backfield.

Due to limited playing time, Bradford has sought greener pastures but a similar fate may await him if he inks with the Sooner.

Speaking of Oklahoma, junior running back Kennedy Brooks (5-11, 220) opted out for the 2020 campaign but did total 1,011 yards rushing with six scores in 2019.

Tennessee transfer Eric Gray (5-10, 306) enters the scene this upcoming season for the Sooners after notching 772 rushing yards and four touchdowns for the Vols last season. The junior also added 30 catches for 254 yards and a pair of scores. Gray was the first three-time Mr. Tennessee Football during his prep career.

Redshirt sophomore Marcus Major (5-11, 220) could also be a factor on the OU depth chart.

Former Destrehan standout Kyle Edwards (6-0, 210) has also entered the transfer portal after the 2020 signee did not see any playing time as a true freshman at Alabama. He followed LSU’s John Emery in the lineup at Destrehan.

Edwards received offers from Houston, Utah, Kentucky, Louisville and Virginia before inking with the Crimson Tide.

The Alabama backfield is stacked, and 2019 four-star signee Keilan Robinson has transferred to Texas. Ten players have left the Alabama football program via transfer since the start the 2020 season.
