West Virginia senior QB Geno Smith completed 32-of-54 attempts for 260 yards, three touchdowns and one interception Saturday against TCU.

Smith's ups and downs continued in this game against the Horned Frogs. There were times where he looked great, moving in the pocket and finding secondary targets, and others where he failed to deliver the ball or locked onto his first read. Clearly there is no consensus top quarterback in the senior class.

Miami junior RB Duke Johnson told the media it's "50/50" that he returns for his senior year.

We, and the rest of the industry, believe it's closer to 95/5. It's probable that Johnson was just being diplomatic, which he himself seemed to indicate in later comments, saying he had nothing left to prove in college. "It would be surprising if he returns," wrote Miami Herald reporter Barry Jackson. The 5-foot-9, 194-pound Johnson has rushed for 88 yards or more in every game this year.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that NFL scouts have concerns that Arizona redshirt senior WR Austin Hill isn't completely healed from last season's knee injury.

"While he entered the season with second/third round grades the word circulating in the scouting community is Austin Hill may not be fully healthy from the knee injury suffered more than a year ago," Pauline wrote. "Never a speedster from the get-go, the inability to separate from defenders on the college level is causing a lot of concern from area scouts, many who now stamp Hill as a late rounder." The senior came into the season carrying some amount of hype, but has posted only 38 receptions for 541 yards and four touchdowns this year. Hill hauled in 81 catches for 1,364 yards and 11 touchdowns to earn All-Pac-12 Second Team honors in 2012, the year before his injury.

Florida redshirt sophomore Tyler Moore's father says the T will declare for the NFL draft following the season.

Confirmation comes from ESPN recruiting analyst Derek Tyson. Moore missed from November to the end of the season last year after breaking his arm in a scooter accident, seeing time at right guard and right tackle. He filled the starting right guard role in Florida's most recent game.

Arizona State redshirt junior WR Jaelen Strong is expected to play against Arizona after sitting out last weekend's game with a concussion.

Strong appeared to go through warmups against Washington State but was ultimately held out of the contest. Strong has been just that, winning in contested situations at the catch point and will likely jump to the NFL after this season.

Oregon CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu has accepted an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl.

In many evaluators' eyes Ifo has struggled this season, giving up receptions over the top after squatting on routes or allowing separation from the slot. Still, his talent hasn't disappeared but perhaps settled. Some teams could view Ifo as a safety, however, he is currently listed as a corner.

UCLA redshirt senior edge rusher Owamagbe Odighizuwa received a +9.5 grade from Pro Football Focus for his play against USC.

That is a huge number for a prospect that deserves more recognition. Odighizuwa "notched two sacks, two hits and six hurries in just 35 pass-rushing snaps," per Sam Monson. USC's left tackle, Toa Lobendahn, was abysmal, and Odhigizuwa took advantage.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley was awarded a -2.4 grade from Pro Football Focus for his performance against USC.

Many will frown upon this assessment, since Hundley completed 22 of 31 attempts for 326 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the game. We noted how easy so many throws were and that many targets were to screen passes or run after catch situations. " all honesty, Hundley didn’t have to do a whole lot to get some of the biggest gains, owing far more to his receivers or AWOL coverage from USC," Sam Monson writes.

Auburn beat writer Brandon Marcello cites a source close to junior Duke Williams who says the receiver is "ready" to play.

As we blurbed yesterday, Auburn coaches have yet to declare Williams healthy to the media, but remain hopeful he will play. Williams sprained his MCL earlier this month. He is Auburn's top slot target, and the Tigers face Alabama this weekend.

Clemson freshman QB Deshaun Watson will practice on Monday after spraining his MCL nine days ago.

The injury occurred just a few weeks after spraining his LCL. Watson will wear a non-contact jersey, but that is common for all quarterbacks during practice. ""He can't be a sitting duck back there; he's got to be able to move and scramble and run. So we'll evaluate that and see where he is," head coach Dabo Swinney said. Senior Cole Stoudt would start in Watson's place if the freshman can't go.

Texas A&M true freshman DE Myles Garrett is expected to play against LSU on Thanksgiving despite sitting out the game against Missouri with an unspecified injury.

Garrett is the school's bets defensive player in just his first season, breaking the SEC record in sacks for a freshman and producing plenty of disruption. He will face off against La'El Collins, one of the top tackle prospects in this class.

Oklahoma freshman RB Samaje Perine was named the Walter Camp Football Foundation’s Offensive Player of the Week.

Wonder how long that voting took. Perine rushed for 427 yards and five touchdowns on 34 carries against Kansas, snapping Melvin Gordon III's FBS record, set one week before. Unbelievably, Perine came off the bench to begin his record-setting day. The Jayhawks wish he hadn't.
