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.

Purdue HC Jeff Brohm said that redshirt senior QB David Blough (ankle) will take part in spring practice.

Blough (6'1/202) suffered a right ankle dislocation in early November, an injury which required surgery and sidelined him for the remainder of the 2017 campaign. He said in mid-January that he was shooting to be available for spring practice. Mission accomplished, it would appear. Brohm said on Friday that the redshirt senior is "way ahead of schedule" in his rehab. The Boilermakers will boot up spring practice this coming Monday. It represents a golden chance for Blough to attempt to make some headway in the race to start during the coming season. He's competing with Elijah Sindelar for starting honors, but Sindelar is still rehabbing from a torn ACL and is not expected to take part in spring work, at least not to any serious degree. Blough will have every opportunity to impress in his absence.

Arizona redshirt senior QB Brandon Dawkins will transfer as a graduate.

Dawkins (6'3/195) opened the 2017 season as Arizona's starting quarterback, but was supplanted by supernova Khalil Tate in early October. He would play sparingly the rest of the way. Tate is very much a Heisman contender and Dawkins' decision to transfer out is as logical as they come. He'll be graduating in May and will be eligible to play immediately with another FBS outfit come the start of the 2018 season. For his career at Arizona, Dawkins finishes up having thrown for 2,418 yards with a 15/12 TD/INT ratio across three active years. He's also a strong running threat, having rushed for a combined 1,582 yards and 20 touchdowns during his time in the desert.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Michigan OC Tim Drevno is resigning from his post.

Drevno was initially hired as part of HC Jim Harbaugh's inaugural Wolverines staff during the winter of 2015. Michigan's offenses have largely been stagnant under his watch, particularly on the passing side of the equation. The ineptitude has stood in stark contrast to what UM has been fielding on defense. Where the team turns to on offense now that Drevno is out of the equation is currently unknown. Michigan hired Jim McElwain as wide receivers coach earlier this week and he would seem to be a respectable candidate to step in for Drevno, though 247Sports is hearing that the program has not yet decided their next move.

Multiple outlets are reporting that USC sophomore RB Stephen Carr (back) will miss spring practice.

Carr (6'0/180) is set to take over as Trojans lead back in the wake of Ronald Jones' exit for the draft, but due to a herniated disc in his back, USC will have to lean on Vavae Malepeai and Aca’Cedric Ware in practice while he mends. There is no timetable for Carr's return to action at this juncture. As a true freshman, he rushed for 363 yards (5.6 YPC) and three touchdowns while adding another 188 yards on 17 receptions. He flashed on multiple occasions, but also dealt with a nagging foot injury which forced him to miss four games. USC boots up spring practice on March 6.

Former NFL QB Michael Vick referred to Louisville QB Lamar Jackson as "a spitting image of me."

Vick appeared on the 'Move the Sticks' podcast this week and had plenty to say on Jackson, who has received his fair share of "right-handed Michael Vick" comps as he preps for the spring draft. Vick is down for those comps. What he's not down for? Talk of Jackson shifting to receiver. Explained the former athletic star, "... for anybody to say Lamar Jackson is a receiver, I don't think they understand the quarterback position." Former Colts GM Bill Polian made waves earlier this week when he said that the 6-foot-3, 205-pounder was "too short" to play quarterback. We find this patently absurd, though it does add at least the slightest bit of intrigue to measurements at next week's NFL Scouting Combine.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the CFL hired Fresno State DC Orlondo Steinauer.

Steinauer worked as defensive coordinator with the Ticats from 2013-16, with Fresno State hiring him last December. After one year on the job in California -- his lone year of FBS coaching to date -- he's heading back to Canada to work once more with Ticats HC June Jones. This leaves the Bulldogs in something of a late lurch. Fresno State will start running spring practices on March 12. Expect them to name a new defensive coordinator in relatively short order.

Florida QB coach Brian Johnson said that the team will hold an open quarterback competition this spring.

That sounds about right. Not only did Florida receive little from incumbent starter Feleipe Franks last year, but HC Dan Mullen will want to keep his options open as he evaluates his new outfit. Said Johnson, "The beauty of us all coming in, and I talked to the guys about this [Wednesday], is that everybody is kind of starting from the same spot in terms of learning our offense." As for the combatants in this competition, the strong-armed Franks threw for 1,438 yards (54.6-percent completions) with a 9/8 TD/INT ratio over the course of 11 games in 2017 and will be trying to hold off redshirt sophomore Kyle Trask and four-star true freshman Emory Jones. We've always been fans of Franks' athletic talent -- he has a cannon -- but his output on the field for the past campaign was very, very discouraging.

Transferring Stanford redshirt senior QB Keller Chryst will visit Tennessee this weekend.

Chryst (6'5/236) will not be graduating until June, meaning that his transfer is going to be more "eventual" than "imminent." As of yet, the Vols have not extended a scholarship offer to the gunslinger, who is moving on after being supplanted by K.J. Costello as starter for the Cardinal during this past season. He's not the only transferring quarterback intrigued by the Vols -- you can count ECU's Gardner Minshew in that same boat. The appeal with Tennessee comes in what should be an open competition at starting signal-caller this spring and summer. Quinten Dormady is transferring out, while Jarrett Guarantano largely failed to impress in his starting opportunities after Dormady was sidelined by shoulder surgery midway through the 2017 campaign. Guarantano and sophomore Will McBride figure to see the bulk of work in competition as matters currently stand, but they might have company soon enough.

Transferring ECU senior QB Gardner Minshew said that he has been in contact with both Tennessee and Auburn.

Looks like there could be some competition for Alabama on this one, though it should be noted that neither Auburn nor Tennessee has offered Minshew as of yet. Alabama has extended an offer and the 6-foot-2, 216-pounder will be off on a visit to Tuscaloosa on Friday. While that outwardly would seem like something of an awkward fit given that the champs already house Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts, Minshew shed some light on his thought process while speaking with Sports Illustrated this week, explaining that he is interested in coaching after his collegiate career is over and would love to see Nick Saban work his magic. Beyond that, he said that he "want[s] to be part of something special." Breaking down the other potential contenders, here, Tennessee's situation would offer him a a chance to compete for playing time come August camp. Auburn, not so much.

Walter Football's Charlie Campbell reports that Wisconsin LB Jack Cichy (knee) will not be able to participate in athletic testing at the NFL Scouting Combine.

This was always a possibility after Cichy sat out the entirety of the 2017 season while rehabbing from a torn ACL sustained in August camp. The 6-foot-2, 233-pounder's draft standing is understandably in flux now. Campbell assigns him a grade for Rds. 4-6, NFLDraftScout is more conservative, applying a Rds. 6-7 grade, while Draft Analyst pegs him with a sixth-round projection. It's not clear at this juncture just when Cichy will be at full health, though he figures to be ready for NFL training camp this summer assuming he does not suffer a setback in recovery.

Marshall redshirt sophomore DT Larry Aaron passed away following complications from a New Year's Eve shooting which had left him paralyzed.

Aaron was paralyzed after he was struck in the back by a stray bullet while at a New Year's Eve party. He took the bullet while stepping in front of his girlfriend in order to protect her. After almost two months struggling with complications, sadly, the defensive tackle has passed away. In a statement, HC Doc Holliday said, "His loss will be felt in every corner of our program and his spirit will never be forgotten." Aaron was just 19 years old.
