UCLA junior OLB Anthony Barr will likely return for his senior season.

"Nothing is set in stone," Barr told Chris Foster of the Los Angeles Times. "But he said coming back is 'where my heart is.' The last piece to his decision will come after receiving an NFL draft evaluation." Over the past month, Barr has quite possibly improved his evaluation more than anyone. After switching to a pass rushing position, Barr showcased his speed off the edge and length to make plays in the backfield. He will certainly be a name to watch next season.

CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd reports that Baylor, embroiled in a sexual assault scandal, hired a powerful law firm "in part as a hedge against a repeat of the NCAA's controversial penalties applied to Penn State."

Per Dodd's sources, neither the NCAA nor the law firm believe Baylor committed "traditional NCAA infractions." Instead, the school is concerned that the NCAA may attempt to make a P.R. stance in punitively punishing Baylor outside its bylaws, as happened to Penn State following the Jerry Sandusky criminal case. On Thursday, Baylor released an independent report that concluded football personnel ignored sexual assault allegations and "discouraged complainants" from reporting them. Officially, Baylor announced it hired the law firm -- Bond, Schoeneck and King of Overland Park, Kansas, the nation's elite firm when it comes to NCAA litigation -- "to initially discuss possible NCAA infractions."

Former Baylor HC Art Briles' daughter, Staley Lebby, released a post on Facebook defending her father's integrity and calling his firing a "media witch hunt."

"This media witch hunt has been the most disturbing thing I've ever witnessed. The situation has been blown so out of proportion. Sadly," Lebby wrote, "Baylor was influenced heavily by the media and felt pressured to let him go. I guess a man that has resurrected your program and made you a top 10 program wasn't worth fighting for or defending." She praised Briles' character at length in her post and called him "one of the most giving & unselfish people I've ever been around." Baylor players voiced similar sentiments on Twitter, with senior safety Orion Stewardt saying that Briles "[t]ook a chance on a skinny ass kid wit barely any offers" and sophomore defensive tackle Andrew Morris writing simply "Injustice."

In an interview with Tigerbait.com, LSU AD Joe Avella spoke at length about last season's near-firing of HC Les Miles, saying that "what happened is just part of the business."

"Going through that process was a good thing. It forced everybody to take a hard look at things. It forced me to take a hard look. It forced Les to take a hard look," Avella said. Miles was -- by several outlets -- already out the door in late November, but it was announced after the team's season-ending win over Texas A&M that he would be retained for 2016. Avella insisted to Tigerbait.com that the turmoil only helped to solidify what LSU is working toward. "Going through that scrutiny was not a bad thing. It forced us to make sure we are doing it the best we can." The athletic director added that he feels "very optimistic" about the team's potential this coming season.

In response, Ole Miss is docking itself a total of 11 scholarships, including three initial scholarships for each of the next three recruiting classes. Additional sanctions from the NCAA could be coming down the pike.

Baylor defensive coordinator Phil Bennett is expected to accept the interim head coach position.

Bennett was reportedly offered the job on Thursday and is expected to accept on Friday, according to ESPN's Jeannine Edwards. The coaching staff was "stunned" by the decision to fire Art Briles, but the details of the report and the football staff's actions leave no doubt in the public's eye. Bennett has been Baylor's defensive coordinator for the last five seasons and acted as SMU's head coach from 2002-2007, totaling an 18-51 record.

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher indicated that FSU junior RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) is ahead of schedule and will be fully healthy at some point next month.

Cook was injured during a pass protection drill in spring practices. "When June goes, he'll be running full speed with our players, and when August comes he'll be in contact and everything will be going great," Fisher said. Rotoworld ranks Cook as the No. 1 RB in the 2017 class.

The Waco Tribune-Herald's John Werner reports that Baylor has yet to decide whether DC Phil Bennett will serve as interim head coach.

Yahoo Sports' Pat Forde reported earlier on Thursday that Bennett would be named interim head coach while Baylor searches for Art Briles' replacement. When they announced Briles' firing, however, no interim name was attached in the statement. Bennett declined to offer a comment. Forde reported that OC Kendal Briles would remain on staff, too, something that also has yet to be confirmed by the university.

Baylor four-star 2017 QB Kellen Mond said that he would be discussing his commitment with his family following the firing of HC Art Briles.

"I definitely committed there because of Art Briles, but I won't know or do anything until I talk to my parents more in depth," Mond said. The 6-foot-3, 199-pound dual-threat gunslinger out of Florida has been committed to the Baylor cause since last June. He ranks as their highest commitment on the ESPN 300, which slots him in at No. 48. Four-star TE Kendrick James --who had been pledged to Baylor prior to Thursday's immolation of the program -- has already chosen to reopen his recruitment.

The Idaho Statesman's Dave Southorn reports that redshirt sophomore LB Marquis Hendrix and redshirt sophomore freshman CB Donzale Roddie have been expelled due to a Title IX sexual misconduct investigation.

These expulsions have been confirmed by the players' families. Redshirt freshman S Darreon Jackson has also been suspended for one year. The misconduct investigation was launched last fall after a female student told Title IX Director of Compliance Annie Kerrick that the three players forced her to perform oral sex. Jack Hendrix, father of Marquis, went on an ugly rant to the Statesman regarding the expulsion, saying, "There are some promiscuous young ladies hiding behind Title IX, and there’s a vendetta against football by those investigators. There was no police investigation, or no repercussions for her actions."

Conflicting reports emerged as to whether Auburn junior RB Roc Thomas will transfer.

Auburnsports.com's Jay G. Tate had reported that Thomas would transfer to Jacksonville State, but Brandon Marcello of SEC Country hears that the 5-foot-11, 202-pounder has not even made a request for a transfer. A former five-star recruit, Thomas rushed for 261 yards and a touchdown last season. Auburn RB coach Tim Horton spoke highly of his work this spring. Stay tuned.
