Athletes are always taught not to settle for perfection.

While this mindset can work well when preparing for sports, it can also lead to unpredictability and movement in the sports environment. This is especially true for college players who skip the NCAA schedule in an attempt to find a better fit.

The introduction of the NCAA Transfer Portal in 2018 made the transfer process more efficient for student-athletes who wish to play at another organization.

Most recently, the sports world saw Clemson's DJ Uyagalelei enter the transfer window on Monday after two struggling seasons with the Tigers in one of the biggest upsets under head coach Dabo Swinney.
