Recruiting: Radley-Hiles was initially committed to Nebraska but re-opened his process in November. He had already taken an official visit to Oklahoma, and then added additional visits to Clemson, UCLA and Florida State before committing to the Sooners at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
At Oklahoma: In three seasons at Oklahoma, Radley-Hiles totaled 115 tackles, nine tackles for a loss, one sack, one forced fumble, three interceptions and 11 pass breakups.
Farrell’s Take: I thought Radley-Hiles could be a Jamal Adams kind of player for Oklahoma with his leadership and physical play and he showed flashes. But he also took too many selfish penalties and was erratic in coverage so he’s been very hit or miss. Can he impact at Washington? Absolutely and they do a great job developing defensive backs. They are thin at defensive back so he should compete right away to be a starter but his impact is much less than what it was out of high school.

The Transfer Portal continues to change the way college football programs recruit and manage their rosters so we here at Rivals.com continue to evolve our coverage. Each time a player of note enters the portal, we will examine their potential impact on the college football landscape and assign an impact rating, both when they enter the portal and when they choose a destination. The scale is from 1-10 and the description below explains the scoring scale.
1.1-4.0 — Not a big impact expected, likely a non-starter and down the bench depth player.
4.1- 6.0 — A solid impact can be expected in the right scenario and has the potential to battle for a starting job.
6.1-9.0. — A high impact player who won’t change a program but will certainly be a very good contributor and starter.
9.1- 9.9 — A very high impact player who should start the moment he steps on the field and will change the outlook of a program immediately.
10 — A franchise transfer who has a chance to be an All American and one of the elite players in college football.
