Transfer Tracker By The Numbers

Today is the first day of August, which means many universities will begin the fall semester soon.

The transfer portal has been busy since it came to be in the fall of 2018, but the number of student-athletes who have entered it since the end of the 2018 season has far exceeded expectations.

At Softball America, we have tried our best to keep up with the Division I student-athletes who are hoping to be on the move. We began keeping track on May 1, and since then, 310 players have been reported in our transfer tracker.

SA has confirmed that 130 of those student-athletes have committed to new programs, while 180 are still searching for landing spots.

If we see any other student-athletes announce their transfers, it will most likely mean that they aren't enrolling until the spring semester or will not be playing in 2020 at all.
