Would guess he knows somebody younger is going to get the playing time that he wants.

This is how the Portal Era will work out. Kids have a lot more flexibility to find playing time. I don’t like them leaving, but I do like the opportunity to pick up talent like Sterk or Williams who are real players stuck on a depth chart. I think we gain more than we lose potentially with the portal, kids develop physically so much the first two years, may find a sleeper.

That stinks. Ryan is a great kid I wish him the best. That is one more kid from the class of 18. That was a top recruiting class who is left???
You are right - a lot in the class have left. I really wish we still had James Williams as he would 100% start this year … Safety Putney would have been nice if he stuck around (or even showed up) and same with OL Donny Long (now at Sac State) - but that is life …

That class still produced:
Ifanse
Askleson
Bauman
both Gibson twins
Snell
Sumner
Deines
Estes
Hardy
Filer

Lots of talent in that class still here honestly

I get it, but I don't like it. Sad to see him go.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think FBS dropdowns have always been able to come in and play right away. We didn't gain anything in that regard. Where we potentially gain is straight-across FCS transfers. Those guys used to have to sit out 1 year, now they don't.

The old transfer rules still apply to the portal. FCS to FCS have to sit a year.

The only thing the portal does is make it so a player can leave without having to talk to his coach, basically. Nothing changes in terms of eligibility.

He stuck it out at MSU, hurt all last year. I can't blame him, he's going to do well down there. Good Luck to Mr. Tucker!

They had a pretty rough year. There’s several kids from the Bozeman, southwest Montana area, and eastern Montana that play there.

Ditto, but I also don't blame the kid. He probably just really wanted to play football (Not just some special team plays), and I'm sure he'll have a great chance to compete for a starting roll at Western.
