NAIA Top 30 Transfer List

The Top 30 list has basically turned into a Top 40 list now. Still really good players on both lists available. Starting to hear of guys who are close to commitments. Also hearing some guys who, while still remain in the “Portal” are leaning at returning next year! If any coaches have any questions about any of these guys, feel free to reach out to us or DM us on Twitter.


Committed List

Damariee Jones (Mobile) – > Southern University (D1)

Reggie Thomas (Hastings) -> North Dakota (D1)

Jalen McAfee-Marion (St. Andrews) – > University of the Southwest (NAIA)

Arik Nichols (UAV) -> Arizona Christian
