Oklahoma Sooners QB Dillon Gabriel to Enter Transfer Portal

    The transfer portal got an unexpected but rather large boost on Monday when former Oklahoma and UCF QB Dillon Gabriel announced his portal entrance.

    One of the leading passers in the nation unexpectedly made himself available in the transfer portal on Monday morning. According to his X (Twitter), Dillon Gabriel is exploring another opportunity after spending two seasons with the Oklahoma Sooners.

    Dillon Gabriel Enters Transfer Portal

    With one season of eligibility left as a sixth-year senior, Gabriel enters the portal as one of the most accomplished quarterbacks in NCAA history.

    The 6’0″, 200-pounder ranks eighth all-time in passing yards and should rise to second with another strong 2024 season. He’s also in the top 10 all-time for passing touchdowns.

    Gabriel began his career at UCF, throwing for 8,037 yards, 70 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions over 26 games.

    Sooners head coach Brett Venables quickly added Gabriel after assuming the head coaching job in Norman and watching Caleb Williams follow his head coach Lincoln Riley to USC.

    Gabriel played in 24 games with Oklahoma after Williams and Spencer Rattler transferred out, throwing for 6,828 yards, 55 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions.

    The Sooners are set to lose most of its starting offense to the NFL and graduation. True freshman quarterback Jackson Arnold is expected to take over for Gabriel after his departure.

    An accomplished left-handed signal-caller, Gabriel made the trek to Orlando from Hawaii. Following in the footsteps of another college football legend — McKenzie Milton — Gabriel made his name a nationally known commodity during his time with the Knights.

    After transferring to Oklahoma, Gabriel continued to etch his name into the college football record books. His 14,865 career passing yards rank eighth all-time and just 4,352 yards away from first-place, Houston’s Case Keenum.

    One wonders if his landing spot could be somewhere that allows him to throw the ball for a potentially record-breaking season in 2024.
