Player with best name in college football set to transfer

The player with the best name in college football is exploring new opportunities.

Oklahoma quarterback General Booty has entered the transfer portal, according to Pete Nakos of On3.

Booty served as a backup behind Dillon Gabriel the past two seasons. It looked like he might have a chance to compete for a starting job heading into 2024 after Gabriel transferred to another high-profile program, but Booty is still looking for a fresh start.

Prior to arriving at Oklahoma, Booty was a star at Tyler Junior College in Tyler, Texas. He led the NJCAA with 3,115 passing yards to go along with 25 touchdown passes.

Booty is the son of former LSU receiver Abram Booty, who had 1,768 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns from 1997-2000. General’s uncles are former LSU quarterback (and Florida Marlins third baseman) Josh Booty, and former USC quarterback John David Booty.

Booty is well aware that he has received a great deal of attention because of his name, but he said two years ago that he wants his play on the field to be a reason people know who he is. His decision to enter the transfer portal indicates he believes a school other than Oklahoma will give him a better opportunity to accomplish that goal.
