LSU beat writer Jim Kleinpeter passed along a rumor that senior T Alex Hurst has quit the football team.

"The rumor is he quit the team, but he's a guy who doesn't talk much to anybody, teammates included," Kleinpeter said. Hurst is also nursing injuries, but head coach Les Miles did hint at off fielf issues being a contributing factor for Hurst possibly missing Saturday's game against South Carolina. Senior Josh Dworaczyk would take over at left tackle, and still may even if Hurst returns.

Michigan State junior QB Connor Cook was not named one of the school's three captains.

Senior safety Kurtis Drummond, junior edge rusher Shilique Calhoun and senior offensive lineman Travis Jackson were named the three captains. Beat writer Joe Rexrode calls the outcome "somewhat surprising, not shocking." 2014 was Cook's first year as a starter. He displayed plenty of upside, but development in the form of poised pocket would be nice to see.

Florida senior S Jabari Gorman said senior QB Jeff Driskel has not thrown an interception during training camp.

This might be the shock of the summer. Driskel was a highly touted recruit and continues to earn buzz because of his frame and arm, but we believe he consistently makes poor decisions while pressured. Poised pocket movement is just not there, but hopefully Driskel has taken a step forward as this news indicates.

Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay ranks Wisconsin redshirt junior RB Melvin Gordon III over Georgia junior Todd Gurley.

The Wisconsin running back "is a home run hitter with very good acceleration and top-end speed, with the ability to make defenders miss both in the hole and in space," McShay writes. Gordon III was given a grade of 89 and Gurley was tagged with an 85. A third member of the SEC, Alabama junior TJ Yeldon, was given an 84. South Carolina's Mike Davis (80) and Duke Johnson of Miami (73) round out the top five.

Texas HC Charlie Strong told reporters sophomore QB Tyrone Swoopes "is the clear No. 2 quarterback."

David Ash is entrenched as the starter, but as we've seen there is no lock for him to play in every game. Swoopes only played in five games last season and completed five of 13 attempts for 26 yards, adding 79 rushing yards and a touchdown. He could grab the starting job in 2015.

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher said senior Christian Green will likely start at WR opposite Rashad Greene.

Fisher also "made it clear he sees viable options in the underclassmen," according to ESPN's Jared Shanker. The beat writer adds sophomores Levonte Whitfield and Jesus Wilson are the most likely slot options, however, the latter still has work to do to get out of the doghouse. We think Greene works best from the slot, but his reps there might diminish during his final season. Expect him to rotate into the slot regardless.

The Senior Bowl has released their watch list of over 350 prospects for 2015's event.

Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota and UCLA Brett Hundley are two listed.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman tabbed Texas Tech sophomore QB Davis Webb as the Big 12's breakout player of the year.

"Don’t be surprised if Webb makes it to NYC as a Heisman finalist in the next two seasons," Feldman begins. "Kingsbury says Webb has the strongest arm of any QB to come through Tech, and he’s also extremely cerebral and determined." Webb was part of Texas Tech's quarterback carousel last year, but started the majority of games. he completed nearly 63 percent of his passes for 2,718 yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

South Carolina junior RB Mike Davis is questionable for the team's season opener against Texas A&M.

The running back is dealing with a rib injury, but it does not appear to be serious. "Mike Davis has been hurt; he hasn't practiced all week," head coach Steve Spurrier said. "I don't know if he'd even be able to start or not." Rotoworld contributor Cian Fahey recently detailed Davis' game and believes he "will be at his best running behind zone-blocking schemes that let him focus on making one cut before accelerating into space." Davis missed one game last season due to injury.

Clemson RB Zac Brooks will miss the 2014 season due to a broken foot.

Brooks will reportedly redshirt the season and have two more years of eligibility. He is one of the team's primary backups at running back and offers more power than other ball carriers on the roster. It is a position of depth for the Tigers. Brooks rushed for and two touchdowns 246 yards on 48 carries last year.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt believes Stanford redshirt junior WR Devon Cajuste could be more special than teammate Ty Montgomery.

Montgomery has earned plenty of buzz thanks to his exceptional straight-line speed, but we think Montgomery does not show that same speed during non-vertical routes and does not consistently win in contested situations. Cajuste is a much bigger frame and has previously been used in the same capacity as receiving tight ends.

Redshirt sophomore Wes Lunt has won Illinois' starting QB job.

Lunt transferred from Oklahoma State prior to last season. The redshirt sophomore was competing with senior Reilly O'Toole and sophomore Aaron Bailey. Back in 2012, Lunt was the first true freshman to starting the Oklahoma State's opening game since 1950. He completed 62 percent of his passes while registering six touchdowns and seven interceptions in six games during his lone season with the Cowboys.
