    2023 Offseason Transfer Tracker

    The weeks following the NCAA Tournament can now be called portal season. College wrestling is inundated with names of wrestlers entering the portal, signing with other programs, and thanks to NIL, rumors of gigantic, hypothetical sacks of cash involved. We know, that's not necessarily how NIL works, but it's fun social media fodder.

    Along with recruiting, re-recruiting of current team members and cherry-picking wrestlers from the portal has become almost an essential part of roster building. This will certainly impact the 2023-24 team race, as six past All-Americans have already gone in and out of the portal. In addition, some high-profile freshmen have done so, too.

    As of Tuesday morning, these are the names of wrestlers that have transferred into DI wrestling programs. I'm sure that list will continue to grow in the near future.

    Wrestlers have been listed by their new school with their previous one in parenthesis.
