In the world of college football, it is very clear that the difference between the Power Five conferences and the Group of Five conferences is a pretty wide gap (even after Houston embarrassed Florida State in this past season’s Peach Bowl).
According to some reports, one of the top players from a G5 conference is looking to take his career to one SEC power that just brought home the national championship. It all started when Gehrig Dieter, a star wide receiver last season for the Bowling Green Falcons who went for over 1,600 yards receiving, took the school off his social media page:

As the day went on, it became clear the the defending national champion Alabama Crimson Tide are the front runners to land the 6’3″ target known for his one handed catches last season:
Looks like Gehrig Dieter will be transferring from bowling green to Alabama. Had 1600 yards receiving last year. Solid pick up

Dieter is graduating from Bowling Green this May and would be eligible to play immediately at whatever school he chooses to attend. Dieter has already transferred one time in his college life, leaving SMU to move closer to his Indiana home and play for the Falcons.
