R.J. Young made another list on Friday. This time it was the top 5 most impactful transfers in college football.

There were some great names from around the country on his list. One of the names that was included was former Michigan QB Cade McNamara, who has now transferred to Iowa.

Young had McNamara at No. 3 on his list. McNamara comes to Iowa City after losing the starting job to J.J. McCarthy this season. In 2021 McNamara led the Wolverines to a B1G title and win over Ohio State along with a 12-2 record.

Under McCarthy, Michigan has done about the same. McCarthy led Michigan to a 12-0 regular season finish and B1G title as well. McCarthy will get to lead his team against TCU in the College Football Playoff on Dec. 31.

Here’s how the rest of Young’s list shaped up:

  • No. 1: QB D.J. Uiagalelei, Clemson
  • No. 2: QB Brennan Armstrong, Virginia
  • No. 3: QB Cade McNamara, Michigan
  • No. 4: QB Devin Leary, N.C. State
  • No. 5: QB Hudson Card, Texas
