Unlike the college transfer portal, there’s no high school equivalent, even though there are hundreds of sports transfers in Southern California each year.

Considering the number of top players moving around, it’s time to launch a 2024 transfer tracker for Southern California high school football.

According to CIF rules, players who transfer and physically move along with their family are eligible immediately at the new school. If a player transfers and his family doesn’t move, there’s a sit-out period of close to 50% of the season. The date athletes become eligible after sitting out is Sept. 30 for the Southern Section.

Listed players are confirmed as having switched schools through social media or from coaches, parents or players. Their transfer eligibility remains uncertain until paperwork is submitted to the Southern Section or City Section. Names will be updated each week, with the latest at the top.
