Brian Kelly joins the transfer portal conversation

·1 min read

LSU coach Brian Kelly has been hitting the transfer portal hard this cycle, and he really hasn’t had a choice.

The portal is just one of the massive changes we have seen in college football over the last few years, and as the dust still settles, coaches will continue to be asked their thoughts on the new landscape.

Earlier this week, it was Kelly’s turn to speak on the transfer portal, and he had some interesting things to say. He stated that there might be a need for some dead periods, similar to what is seen in high school recruiting.

“I think that will eventually find itself to be reasonable,” Kelly said, “I don’t think I need to be standing on a pulpit for that in particular.”

Kelly’s attitude seems to be that any issues related to the portal will find an equilibrium given some time. At this point, he is a pretty clear benefactor of the portal, so it’s unlikely we’ll see him taking a stand against it.

Things like the NIL and the portal have led to some controversy, but seeing how coaches decided to publicly respond to each topic has been interesting because they stand to reap the benefits but also could be hurt by them.
