  Memphis junior tight end Tyce Daniel has entered the transfer portal, the USA Today Network has learned. He's the second tight end to depart the Tigers in as many days. A source told The Commercial Appeal that Daniel opted out prior to the Montgomery Bowl. The source was granted anonymity because a formal announcement has not been made. Daniel appeared in eight games this past season and 20 over the past three seasons with two career catches for 12 yards. He signed with the Tigers as a three-star recruit in 2017. - Memphis Commercial Appeal

  FIU quarterback Stone Norton, who was named Mr. Tennessee in 2018 after throwing for more than 3,000 yards as a high school senior, has entered his name in the transfer portal and is already back in Nashville, awaiting his next opportunity. Norton's biggest FIU moment came in the season-opener. He came in off the bench in the second half, rallying FIU from a 10-point deficit before the Panthers lost 36-34 to Liberty. He completed 9-of-13 passes for 120 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in what was likely the best performance by an FIU quarterback all season. However, after getting uneven playing time the rest of the season, he opted out. Chris Norton, Stone's father, flew down to Miami on Monday and then helped his son pack up and head home. They made the non-stop trip to Nashville in 14 hours, and it was "bittersweet", Chris Norton said.

"We envisioned Stone would be at FIU four or five years," his father said. "After fall camp, we though he had won the job. And after [the Liberty game], we thought the same thing. "It's a tough deal, frustrating...He's got a couple of weeks to make a decision [on a new college], and with the recruiting restrictions [on visiting campuses due to the pandemic], it will be a leap of faith." Norton's transfer is just the latest disappointment for an FIU pandemic-shortened season that concluded with a 0-5 record. FIU hadn't gone winless since 2006, when coach Don Strock - the former Dolphins quarterback - went 0-12. - Miami Herald
