It happens every year. Transfers come and go – and while many never grab the headlines – they are a part of a group that can change the landscape of a program – in a few months.
After the past three off seasons in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, where over 1,000 prospects changed schools.
From the time the 2022 season ended, a number of prospects changed schools – and college coaches, who will be down in south Florida in spring – are starting to follow these talented young men.
As the focus is on the future classes, much of the interest heading into spring is on the players who are making a move in the Class of 2024.
The rising seniors are making the move for the final season for a number of reasons, and while we are just in February, you can expect this list to double and triple over the next few months as we head toward spring in late April and early May. After spring there is usually a large group that also makes the move.
As we continue to track all the moves in every class and pass them on to college coaches, we will start to publish the ongoing list after spring is over for those interested in following.
As moves take place and prospects, coaches and parents let us know about them, we add them to that growing list. Here are a few of the transfers that have taken place for the rising seniors.
