. 489. . 18. northwestern. . Incoming: 0 | Outgoing: 8. team. .

Zero, and I mean 0, players have committed to transfer to the Wildcats program following the 2023-24 season. Head coach David Braun has witnessed an absolute bloodletting of his roster so far this offseason.

While not acquiring any fresh talent from the portal, Braun and staff have seen eight players head to greener pastures.

The Northwestern offense has lost former starting lineman Zachary Franks, lineman Alex Doost, offensive guard Josh Priebe, running back Anthony Tyus III, and walkon quarterback Cole Freeman.

The defensive unit hasn’t walked away unscathed either. Jim O’Neil, the Wildcats’ defensive coordinator, has lost defensive backs Rod Heard and Nigel Williams as well as defensive tackle Matt Lawson.

With such an uneven ratio of players into the program versus players out of the program, the Wildcats sit at the bottom of the Big Ten power rankings from this transfer portal season.
