Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay does not believe there is an elite QB in the 2013 NFL Draft that is "capable of coming in and contributing right away."

He went on to list three names: West Virginia's Geno Smith, USC's Matt Barkley, and NC State's Mike Glennon. McShay then added that at this time last year he considered Ryan Tannehill a second-round prospect but elevated his grade into the top-ten due to the pre-draft process. The lack of a clear top quarterback definitely adds uncertainty to the 2013 class.

SMU hired Sonny Dykes as head coach.

Dykes, a Mike Leach disciple who runs a variation of the Air Raid, burst onto the scene as by rebuilding Louisiana Tech in three short years. His Bulldogs went 22-15 and won the 2011 WAC title, their first in a decade. The next year, his LTU offense averaged 51.5 points and 478 yards per game. Dykes left for Cal, where his tenure was up-and-down. He went 8-5 and won the 2015 Armed Forces Bowl while grooming a future No. 1 overall pick (QB Jared Goff), but success was fleeting (he went 19-30 at Cal) and the administration tired of his wandering eye. Dykes, a Big Spring native and a former Texas Tech player and assistant, has deep Texas roots that'll help him as he takes over a Texan-laden SMU roster. Morris focused his recruiting efforts in-state, and Dykes figures to do the same. Dykes' system is a nice fit for SMU's returning talent. WR Courtland Sutton is no doubt headed to the NFL, but Dykes may be able to convince 100-catch WR Trey Quinn to stay along with James Proche.

Florida redshirt junior DT Taven Bryan announced on Twitter that he'll enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

"Coach (Dan) Mullen coming back to Gainesville made this decision very difficult because I have the highest regard for him and I believe he is going to bring greatness to #GatorNation," Bryan wrote. The 6-foot-4, 295-pounder broke out in 2017 after previously being used as part of a rotation. He finished with 40 tackles, six TFL, four sacks and three quarterback hurries. If Bryan tests well at the combine as expected, he'll have a decent chance to go on Day 2. Walter Football's Charlie Campbell, who reported in late November that Bryan would declare, has heard Bryan compared by scouts to the Chiefs' Chris Jones and the Broncos' Derek Wolfe.

Florida State HC Willie Taggart said the Seminoles offense will play with more tempo and be less complicated than it has in the past.

Jimbo Fisher's offenses were criticized for being slow -- the Seminoles averaged just 61 plays per game last season, in the bottom-10 nationally -- and overly complicated. Taggart's offense is the opposite. He describes his Gulf Coast offense with the words "lethal simplicity." By that he means granting players supreme freedom within the up-tempo system, a tact that previously allowed Quinton Flowers' career to take off at USF. Taggart has plenty of toys to play with in Tallahassee, with two quarterbacks who have starting experience (Deondre Francois and James Blackman), a two-headed RB monster (Jacques Patrick and Cam Akers) and a host of athletes on the outside headlined by Noonie Murray and Auden Tate. They're a perfect fit for what he wants to do.

Wyoming redshirt junior QB Josh Allen (shoulder) said his shoulder still isn't where he wants it to be.

Allen indicated that he'll know in the next few days if he'll be able to play in the bowl game. The Cowboys gunslinger has repeatedly stated that he'll play in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on Dec. 22 against Central Michigan if he's healthy enough to do so. Allen will declare for the NFL Draft after that game. He was honored by the school on Senior Day as a farewell.

Ole Miss sophomore QB Shea Patterson announced on Twitter that he will transfer to Michigan.

Jim Harbaugh must have pulled out all the stops during Patterson's weekend visit to Ann Arbor, because Patterson has ended his abrupt re-recruitment, well, abruptly. Patterson (6'2/203), a former five-star prospect and the No. 1-ranked QB in the class of 2016, is on the move following sanctions the NCAA recently handed down to Ole Miss due to a series of infractions. Those sanctions came with a 2018 bowl ban, which permitted Rebel seniors to transfer without sitting out a year. Patterson isn't a senior, but he and other Rebel non-seniors figure to argue to the NCAA that they were misled about the severity of potential penalties facing the program by former HC Hugh Freeze during recruitment. If Patterson's eligibility waiver is granted by the NCAA, his move is a potential 2018 sea changer. If the waiver is denied, Patterson will sit out in 2018 (he'd be a redshirt junior in 2019) and redshirt freshman Brandon Peters and true freshman Dylan McCaffrey will vie for the starting job.

Iowa redshirt junior S Brandon Snyder was arrested on drunken driving charges.

Pulled over Kinnick Stadium early Sunday morning, Snyder told police he had been drinking. He failed a breathalyzer test. It's been a rough year for Iowa's 2016 starting free safety. He tore his left ACL in spring practice in April only to make a remarkably-fast return on October 7 against Illinois. Too fast, it turned out, as Snyder re-tore the ACL (but not before he had a pick-six in the game). "While we are currently gathering additional facts, we are very disappointed to learn of Brandon's involvement," HC Kirk Ferentz said in the statement. "Brandon is subject to the rules and regulations of the UI Student-Athlete Code of Conduct, and the rules and regulations of our football program."

Pitt junior S Jordan Whitehead announced his intention to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Whitehead moved around at the safety spot over the last three seasons, and some might even view him as a corner. Still just 20 years old, Whitehead broke out as a true freshman in 2015 and followed it up in 2016 with another strong season. 2017 included a few hiccups, but Whitehead likely draws a positive evaluation over the next few months. He was suspended for three games this season, and more details on that incident likely will surface.

TCU staffer Sonny Dykes will likely be named SMU's next head coach, according to multiple reports.

Dykes is likely most known for his time with Cal from 2013-2016, ending his career with highly productive seasons with Jared Goff. Offense has never been an issue under Dykes, as he converted a style of the Air Raid into a scheme known as the Bear Raid. Defense, however, is a totally different story, and Dykes would be wise to add an equal to coach that side of the ball.

Kentucky received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 JUCO QB Terry Wilson.

Wilson (6'3/187) was originally a member of Oregon's 2016 recruiting class but transferred to the JUCO ranks in May. He checks into the 247Sports Composite as the No. 3 dual-threat junior college gunslinger in the 2018 class. He pledged himself to the Wildcats cause after taking an official visit to UK on Friday. This is a much-needed get for HC Mark Stoops, as Kentucky just lost four-star QB Jarren Williams to Miami.

Wisconsin senior TE Troy Fumagalli will play in the Orange Bowl against Miami on Dec. 30.

Fumagalli (6'6/248) was asked if he planned on sitting out the bowl to protect his health for the draft, but he shot that down in no uncertain terms, saying, "I can't imagine myself doing that." Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline grades him as a fourth-round prospect for the draft, but the positional class isn't as deep as last year's monster tight end assortment, which could potentially push him up the board into Day 2 simply due to scarcity.

Washington State dismissed junior WR Tavares Martin.

All we know at this juncture is that Martin is being dismissed due to a violation of team rules. This doesn't comes as a complete shock. Back in mid-October, the 6-foot-1, 185-pound junior was suspended for a game against Colorado for reasons unknown. He was Wazzu's leading receiver this season, logging a 70-831-11 receiving line. Washington State could well be out both their top wideouts from the season in the coming weeks, as Isaiah Johnson-Mack is currently seeking a transfer. He tweeted last weekend that HC Mike Leach had yet to grant his release, though, so at least on that front, we'll have to wait and see. The Cougars take on Michigan State in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 28.
