Well, the transfer market is wide open. Wide open.
California linebacker Evan Rambo (6-4/210) has announced his intent to transfer to Teas Tech with the possibility of playing for the next two years so long as the NCAA grants an extension of his five year clock. What that means is that Rambo played in 11 games as a freshman in 2015, played in 4 as a sophomore before being out for the year, redshirted 2017, and got back on the field in 2018 playing in 7 games with 2 starts. Rambo started his career at safety and was moved to inside linebacker in 2018. Rambo almost sounds like an ideal spur candidate.
And that’s 8 minutes of highlights from last year for Rambo, just so you get an idea as to what Rambo can do defensively.
In addition to Rambo, Texas Tech has also addeda> Utah Ute running back Armand Shyne (5-11/210). Shyne arrived at Utah as a JUCO transfer in 2016, redshirted all of 2017, and then played in 14 games last year, carrying the ball for 512 yards on 120 carries with 5 touchdowns, including 174 yards on 26 carries against Oregon.
Shyne is not a scat-back with moves on moves, he gets pretty quickly to the spot, but he doesn’t have multiple moves. He’s fine running over people and that’s not exactly fitting within Yost’s system, the fact that Shyne has done this at the Power Five level is a good thing. Whereas Rambo and MacPhearson have had some success at their programs, Shyne has been significantly more successful at Utah.
And Wells may not be done. Wells had Wreck Em x 2 on Tuesday, and then yesterday, Wells had another Wreck Em, so expect some more action today. I can hardly keep up.
