Texas senior DE Alex Okafor was credited with two sacks and two forced fumbles, to go along with three quarterback hurries, during Saturday's game against West Virginia.

Okafor had his way with the Mountaineer offensive line and in many cases Geno Smith, who is one of the best pocket manipulators in college football. Okafor may not have the top-end, flashy burst off the line, but he wins with powerful hands, extension, and strong legs to push the pocket and shed at the quarterback.

Tennessee hired Alabama offensive analyst Chris Weinke to serve as running backs coach.

The Crimson Tide brought Weinke in last winter. This new job in Knoxville will be his first serving as an on-field coach at the collegiate level. Prior to his gig in Tuscaloosa, he served as quarterbacks coach for the NFL's Rams from 2015-16 and earlier worked as head coach for the high school football factory that is IMG Academy down in Florida (2010-14). At Tennessee, Weinke will be tasked with helping Ty Chandler to break in as full-time starter following John Kelly's departure for the NFL.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 LB Marcel Brooks is deciding between LSU and Alabama.

Brooks (6'3/200) will be making his choice on June 25. He'll be visiting LSU for their junior day on March 3, a week from Saturday and will also visit Alabama before he makes his final decision. Should a team from outside his top two programs make a push, it would probably be Oklahoma. While it seems that he's narrowed his decision down to the bare essentials, we're still four months away from his scheduled commitment date and recruiting tides can shift rather quickly. Brooks ranks as the No. 111 overall prospect in the 2019 class on the 247Sports composite board. He's a physical defender with an awesome first step, one who has room to add functional weight onto his frame without losing any of his athletic edge.

AL.com's Matt Zenitz reports that transferring ECU senior QB Gardner Minshew will visit Alabama this weekend.

Starting to get a fair bit of smoke with Minshew and the Crimson Tide, as 247Sports reported earlier this month that Alabama was potentially targeting the gunslinger. Looks like the interest is mutual, here. ECU's starting quarterback, Minshew withdrew from the program at the end of January citing a family matter. While the 6-foot-2, 216-pounder will be eligible to play immediately in 2018 as a graduate, Tuscaloosa is far from a clean landing spot. Alabama is already stocked at quarterback with Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts. Even if Hurts were to transfer -- and as of yet, that does not appear to be imminent -- Minshew would at best be working as a backup to Tagovailoa for the coming campaign. To this juncture, Alabama is the only school we've seen linked to Minshew.

Wake Forest redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch (abdomen) is expected to be 100% healthy at the start of spring practice.

This is a stellar development for the Demon Deacons. Dortch was in the midst of huge campaign at the time he sustained an abdominal injury against Louisville near the end of October. He underwent surgery for that injury the same night as the game against the Cardinals and proceeded to sit out the remainder of the campaign while rehabbing. Even with his year cut short by a month, the 5-foot-9, 165-pounder still put up a strong 53-722-9 receiving line. His health will be worth monitoring as we continue through the offseason, but everything's full-speed-ahead at this juncture.

ESPN's Mel Kiper believes Washington DT Vita Vea has "rare" quickness for a player of his size "and can play all three downs."

Kiper adds Vea is a "freakish" talent. This is obviously very high praise, and Kiper clearly believes Vea is an upfield disruptor and will help as a pass rusher. There are clear expectations for Vea's NFL Combine workout, but we aren't sold on Vea as an every down defensive tackle.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah spoke to one "top" DL coach who compared UTSA edge rusher Marcus Davenport to Jason Taylor.

Taylor was 6-foot-6 and 248-pounds when entering the NFL from a small program like Akron and Davenport will be around the same height and nearly 260-pounds at the NFL Combine. The Senior Bowl showed Davenport has a ways to go in terms of a pass rushing plan, but improving his strengths could help him be an impact player in the NFL.

The MMQB's Albert Breer expects UTSA edge rusher Marcus Davenport to be drafted before pick No. 13.

"Just watch. The converted receiver from a mid-major school will put on a show in Indianapolis," Breer writes. Davenport is coming off a disappointing Senior Bowl week after the expectations placed on him were a bit too high. Disappointing in that Davenport failed to win one on one reps until the final day of practice. The foundation of Davenport's game is length, size and athleticism, and those should be on display in Indy.

USC QB Same Darnold possesses "off-the-charts intangibles," per conversations the MMQB's Albert Breer had with NFL personnel members.

Breer projects Darnold to be the Browns selection at No. 1, and teams' potential comfort with him due to those intangibles seems to be a major factor why. The quarterback hierarchy becomes more clear following the NFL Combine, with many trade talks happening over the course of that week. But as of now, Darnold appears the favorite for the No. 1 spot, as that same "intangibles" line has not been repeated for Josh Rosen or Baker Mayfield.

Notre Dame received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 DT Hunter Spears.

Spears (6'4/280) had a number of high-profile offers on his plate, including ones from Alabama, Cal and TCU. Notre Dame wins the day, though. The defensive tackle ranks as the No. 242 overall prospect on the 247Sports composite board. He already possesses plenty of functional strength and size, but will need to continue to work on his off-the-snap quickness and his overall consistency as he progresses toward a college career with the Irish.

Miami received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 WR Jeremiah Payton.

Payton (6'3/180) was also considering Florida State and Auburn, among others. He's fresh off a sterling performance at The Opening Regional in Miami over the weekend, with 247Sports' Luke Stampini noting that he's "a big, athletic target on the outside that has a knack for making plays." On the 247Sports' composite board, Payton rolls in at No. 83 overall. He currently stands as Miami's highest-ranked recruit in the 2019 class.

In their latest rankings release, Rivals named uncommitted five-star 2019 ATH Quavaris Crouch the No. 1 prospect in the class.

Not much of a bump up for Crouch, who had been sitting at No. 2 previously, but he's the new top dog nonetheless. The outlet's previous No. 1 prospect in the 2019 class was USC QB J.T. Daniels, but that was out the window after Daniels reclassified for 2018. For his part, the 6-foot-2, 225-pound Crouch has shined as both a running back and a defender -- he played defensive end as a sophomore in 2016 and linebacker as a junior in 2017 -- but likely projects as a defender for the collegiate ranks, particularly now that he's started to gain a feel for it. Alabama, Clemson and Georgia are among those pursuing the Charlotte native at this early juncture.
