Marvin Grant in the Transfer Portal

Probable starting Safety, Marvin Grant has entered the transfer portal. He is a great player and it will be sad to see him leave West Lafayette. As much as this feels like routine news at this point in college football, I can't help but feel like this is a consequential moment, and I will be very curious to see where he goes. This doesn't seem like a player transferring for playing time or just to change things up. Grant was coming into the season as arguably our best player on defense. I think this may be the first case of Purdue losing one of its best players to the college football NIL money pecking order. I have a feeling he will be going to a higher tier program with a deal. My bet is Michigan just because its easier for word of interest to travel through friends and family. I can't help but wonder if he was nudged into the portal with an unofficial offer.
