Penn State confirmed that junior QB Rob Bolden is no longer on their football team after granting him his release from scholarship.

A transfer now appears imminent after Bolden spent the weekend visiting LSU. Preseason practices start in just over a week, so Bolden's decision should come in the next few days. He certainly would not start over Zach Mettenberger in Baton Rouge, so Bolden may continue looking until he finds a landing spot where he could compete for playing time. The junior is more of an athlete than quarterback at this point in his career and sports 14 interceptions compared to only eight total touchdowns.

Alabama LB Reuben Foster visited the Detroit Lions on Friday.

Sitting at pick No. 21, it is fair enough to question whether Foster will even be around when the Lions draft (assuming they do not trade up). The 6-foot-1, 240-pound Foster could potentially be the first linebacker swept into the arms of Roger Goodell during Day 1 festivities in Philly later this month. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline pegs him to the Cardinals at No. 13 in his latest four-round mock. Foster has had his issues during the evaluating process -- he was kicked out of the Combine after confronting a hospital worker and has additionally undergone offseason shoulder surgery -- but there are no outward indications that he could be for any sort of a major stock drop when the big day arrives.

Nebraska received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 WR Manuel Allen.

The Cornhuskers have done a nice job recruiting receivers over the past two cycles. Allen continues that roll for Nebraska. He opted for HC Mike Riley's outfit over Ole Miss, Oregon and UCLA. Previously, the 6-foot-1, 170-pounder had been considered a strong bet to stick by a prior commitment to USC, but he reopened his recruitment near the end of February. As for his onfield chops, ESPN.com notes that Allen is "an impressive player with body control, agility and a knack for making plays." The outlet is also impressed with the crispness of his route-running at this tender young age. They rank him as their No. 101 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle.

Kansas State hired Iowa deputy athletic director Gene Taylor to serve as athletic director.

Taylor has been with Iowa for the last three seasons. Prior to his years in Iowa City, he helped to build up the FCS star destroyer that is North Dakota State. In a statement, the 58-year-old said, "We are excited to get to Manhattan, and I look forward to meeting our student-athletes, coaches, staff and supporters and helping them build upon the across-the-board success that K-State has attained." At Kansas State, he replaces outgoing athletic director John Currie, who has accepted the same job at Tennessee.

Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com reports that Cleveland Browns HC Hue Jackson is "in the [Texas A&M edge rusher Myles] Garrett camp."

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier this week that there was a "split" within the Browns regarding the No. 1 pick, with one faction on the team arguing for Garrett while the other faction favors UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky. Looks like Jackson is on the side of the slam dunk pick in Garrett. While this little Garrett/Trubisky rumor has understandably caused draft insiders to bubble with the excitement of the unknown, we still feel strongly that Garrett will -- and should be -- the first player selected on April 27.

LSU RB Leonard Fournette attended the Saints' local prospect day on Friday.

The Saints got a free look at Fournette, but it's unlikely that they will leave Draft Day with the local kid made good. Fournette isn't likely to drop to New Orleans' slot at No. 11, for one, and we're sort of assuming that New Orleans would prefer to use their two first-rounders to begin to rebuild that woeful defense.

Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer worked out for the Bears at their local prospect day.

This is essentially a bonus look for the Bears, who previously designated Notre Dame, Illinois and Northern Illinois as their three "local" schools outside of their immediate area. That means that Irish prospects like Kizer can work out for Chicago at their local prospect day without eating into the Bears' allotment of 30 official pre-Draft visits. Thursday marked Kizer’s third meeting with the Bears. The Chicago Sun Times reported that the signing of Mike Glennon to a three-year, $45 million contract and the signing of Mark Sanchez to be his backup won't preclude the Bears from picking a quarterback later this month. Kizer would make sense from a developmental standpoint if he drops into Day 2. Kizer has also worked out for the Bills, Jets, Browns and Chargers.

NC State sophomore TE Thaddeus Moss announced that he will transfer.

The three-star 2016 recruit didn't elaborate on his decision. As a freshman, Thaddeus, the son of Randy Moss, caught six passes for 49 yards and a touchdown while starting three games. He'll have to sit out next season if he transfers to another FBS program.

An NFL.com poll of personnel men regarding Washington CB Sidney Jones' (Achilles) found that evaluators are predicting that Jones will be taken anywhere from late-Rd. 1 to Round 3.

Jones ruptured his Achilles at his pro day workout last month. An NFC East regional scout compared Jones to Marcus Peters without the baggage before Jones' injury. "I think he picked up all of (Marcus) Peters' good traits as a player without the personality defects," he said. "He marries that great FBI (football intelligence) with an explosive close-out and that will win in the pros just like it wins in college. You will always wish he was 198 pounds, but he won't be." NFL Media's Lance Zierlein also compares Jones to Peters. "His toughness and desire to make plays on the ball are remarkably similar to his friend and off-season workout buddy, Marcus Peters," Zierlein wrote. "Jones has lockdown corner talent but unfortunately, teams will have to wrestle with his draft positioning as there is no guarantee that Jones can come back with the same quickness and speed as before." For his part, Zierlein predicts that Jones will be a top-50 pick.

The DL coaches of the Detroit Lions, Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings all attended Toledo DL Treyvon Hester's (shoulder) workout on Thursday.

In addition, the following teams attended the showcase: the Denver Broncos, New York Giants, San Diego Chargers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City Chiefs, Pittsburgh Steelers, Indianapolis Colts and Oakland Raiders. Hester scheduled the private workout after missing the pre-Draft process due to December surgery to repair a shoulder labrum. At 6-foot-2, 304 pounds, Hester posted a vertical jump of 31.5 inches that would have ranked No. 2 among DLs at the NFL Combine and a forty clocked between 4.86s-to-4.91s that would have been the fastest of any DL in Indy. Hester will visit the Steelers, according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline, but wasn't able to fulfill the visit requests of the Vikings and Lions due to time constraints. "I view Hester as one of the best nose tackle prospects in this year’s draft and his game reminds me of ten year NFL veteran Ahtyba Rubin," Pauline wrote.

Clemson redshirt senior DT Scott Pagano transferred to Oregon as a graduate.

The 6-foot-3, 295-pound defensive tackle picked the Ducks over a host of potential suitors that included Notre Dame, Arkansas, Cal, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas. A former four-star who went on to be a valuable rotational piece for Clemson, Pagano figures to start immediately for an Oregon defense that desperately needed him.

Utah T Garett Bolles is visiting the Bills on Friday, according to Adam Caplan.

The Bengals drafted two tackles two years ago in the first and second round, although neither has instilled confidence in the fanbase. The Bengals also let their top two offensive linemen leave in free agency. because of the draft capital used, we would be surprised to see the Bengals take a tackle early in the draft. For better or worse.
