Tracking Texas A&M football portal departures: Transfers to conference rivals

Here, we will examine the four players who left the Aggies for other destinations in the SEC. All of these left in the winter window, as the intra-conference strictures prevent players from moving between SEC teams in the spring window.

Alabama Crimson Tide. . LT Overton. . . 523. LT Overton. LT Overton. DL. player

A five-star defensive lineman, LT reclassified up from 2023 to help further decorate the 2022 group. He played right away, but it sometimes looked like DJ Durkin didn't quite know what to do with him, dropping him into coverage and failing to make much use of his physical talent. I don't think that will be an issue for him at Alabama.

. Jardin Gilbert. . S. LSU Tigers. 529. Jardin Gilbert. player. Jardin.

Jardin's spot got taken after a rough outing against Miami resulted in an injury. It's hard, but that's how things go. A native of Baton Rouge, it just made sense that he would end back up with LSU. The Aggies will see him in late October of this year when he makes his return to Kyle Field in purple and gold.

Raikes. . Isaiah Raikes. 525. . . Auburn Tigers. player. Isaiah Raikes. DL

Raikes is actually a two-time transfer, as he initially went to Southern Cal. After spring practice, though, he entered the portal again, and is now reunited with DJ Durkin, this time on the Plains of Auburn. The Aggies will travel to play Raikes and the Tigers on November 23, the penultimate week of the season.

. Ole Miss Rebels. . Walter Nolen. Walter Nolen. player. . 532. Walt. DL

If Evan Stewart wasn't the most closely-covered departure from the Aggies, then it was Walter. There was some thought he may return after he lingered in the portal for a while, but he ended up giving his verbal commitment to Lane Kiffin and the Rebels. The Aggies do not play Ole Miss this year, so they are unlikely to see Nolen before he doubtless heads to the NFL after this year.
