The Vanderbilt football team has seen its fair share of players leave the program through the NCAA transfer portal over the past few years.

But now, the ‘Dores appear to be using the portal to their advantage, adding two key players to their roster on Thursday in offensive lineman Jacob Brammer and defensive lineman Myles Cecil.

Brammer, a 6-foot-3, 301-pound tackle, was a three-year starter at North Texas and a two-time All-Conference USA selection. He started 35 games over four seasons with the Mean Green, and helped anchor an offensive line that blocked for the best rushing offense in C-USA in 2021 (233.5 yards per game).

His addition provides a shot in the arm to VU’s offensive line, arguably the team’s biggest area of need after Tyler Steen and Jason Brooks — who were both projected as starters — entered the transfer portal in the offseason.
