Cal junior DL DeAndre Coleman will reportedly return for the 2013 season.

Coleman had been rumored to be leaving for April's draft, but the prospect with upside will return for his senior season. He possesses a great frame and seems to project as a five technique end in a three man front, which is a position that has traditionally been drafted earlier than expected. Still, Coleman has some technical things to sharpen up in his game, so we take no issue with this decision.

Alabama redshirt sophomore David Cornwell will transfer.

Prior to last season, both ESPN and the Alabama-centric AL.com predicted that Cornwell would beat out Jake Coker to start for the Tide. That didn't happen, and Cornwell subsequently tumbled down the depth chart. Having already graduated from Alabama as a third-year soph, Cornwell is eligible to play immediately wherever he goes and has two years of eligibility remaining. A four-star 2014 recruit, Cornwell was ranked as the No. 4 pro-style QB in the country. Cornwell is the third Tide quarterback to transfer over the past few weeks, following Blake Barnett (committed to play at Arizona State) and Cooper Bateman (undecided). Last December, Tide QB Alec Morris transferred to North Texas. Looks like it's time for Nick Saban to go shopping for a few Jalen Hurts backups.

Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey confirmed that he will enter the 2017 NFL draft.

McCaffrey announced the news Wednesday on Twitter. McCaffrey wrote in a follow-up news release that "there's nothing more I can put on film," and we tend to agree. He shattered Barry Sanders' NCAA single-season record for all-purpose yardage in 2015 with 3,864 yards, winning the AP National Player of the Year award and finishing second in the Heisman Trophy race behind Alabama's Derrick Henry. C-Mac battled through injuries in 2016 but still put up 2,327 all-purpose yards, leading the country with 211.55 all-purpose yards per game. Despite Stanford's offense regressing and his aforementioned health issues, McCaffrey's ypc average actually jumped from 6.0 in 2015 to 6.3 this season. McCaffrey is the No. 28 overall prospect, according to Todd McShay.

Ole Miss redshirt senior QB Chad Kelly (knee) accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Unfortunately, Kelly will be a bystander, unable to participate in practices or play in the game due to a torn ACL and lateral meniscus. The silver lining is that he can rub elbows with evaluators. Across nine games this year, Kelly threw for 2,758 yards and 19 touchdowns. Fully healthy last season, he threw for 4,042 yards.

USF HC Willie Taggart will be Oregon's next head coach, according to ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

Taggart's name popped on occasion, but some reports gave him no chance of landing this position. Oregon decision makers disagreed, and Taggart was hired over names like P.J. Fleck. Taggart played football at WKU and coached there from 2010-2012 before taking the USF job in 2013 in his home state of Florida. His team is 17-4 over the last 21 games. Taggart has shown a willingness to change styles, as he fired offensive and defensive coordinators after a slow start at USF, something many coaches struggle with. This is the first external hire at Oregon in a very long time.

Clemson junior QB Deshaun Watson was named the winner of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award.

The Golden Arm is handed out annually to the top senior or junior quarterback (on track to graduate with his class) in the country. Watson earns the honor on the strength of 3,914 yards passing (67.6% completions) and a 37/15 TD/INT ratio over the course of 13 contests completed. The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder will also be attending Heisman proceedings in New York on Saturday, though Louisville QB Lamar Jackson may already be setting up camp in the Heisman House at this juncture.

Tennessee received a verbal commitment from five-star 2017 T Trey Smith.

The Volunteers might have disappointed with an 8-4 2016 campaign, but that was apparently not enough to sway Smith from making a commitment to Tennessee. This is a monster pledge. The 6-foot-6, 299-pounder ranks as ESPN 300's No. 1 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle. Ole Miss, Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Ohio State were also in the running for his commitment. Scout.com notes that Smith "has a great frame with good feet, flexibility, and the ability to be one who protects the quarterback and opens holes for running backs." The outlet calls him a "finisher."

CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd hears that Oklahoma OC Lincoln Riley "killed it" during his interview for Houston's head-coaching position.

A plugged-in source had nothing but a glowing review for Riley's interview performance, telling Dodd, "I would be surprised if they don't hire him." Having spent eight years at Texas Tech, Riley already has the requisite roots in the state. Current Cougars coordinators Major Applewhite and Todd Orlando have also reportedly drawn interviews, as well as former LSU HC Les Miles and Alabama OC Lane Kiffin. Expect an official decision on Houston's Tom Herman replacement by the end of the week.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller reports that Stanford junior RB Christian McCaffrey will declare for the 2017 NFL Draft.

No huge surprise there. McCaffrey was limited by injury during the middle of the 2016, missing one contest due to the undisclosed ailment, but has bounced back to end the regular-season campaign in high style. The 6-foot, 202-pounder ripped Rice and Cal for back-to-back 200-yard efforts in Stanford's final two games to conclude a stretch of five consecutive contests in which he rushed for at least 135 yards. McCaffrey's 211.55 all-purpose yards per game mark is the best in the country, while his 1,596 rushing yards are the most by a back in the Pac-12. He will have a chance to make one final game-impression on the scouting community when Stanford plays North Carolina in the Sun Bowl on December 30.

ESPN's Sam Khan Jr. reports that Houston has interviewed Alabama OC Lane Kiffin, former LSU HC Les Miles, OC Major Applewhite and DC Todd Orlando for their open head-coaching position.

Per Khan, Houston is expected to make their hire to replace the departed Tom Herman by the end of the week. ESPN's Brett McMurphy previously reported that former Baylor HC Art Briles has also received an interview. Should Kiffin come away with the gig -- Nick Saban is said to be in support of him taking the job -- he is still expected to patrol the Bama sideline during their Playoff-run-to-be.

The Oklahoma Supreme Court has ruled that the videotape of Oklahoma redshirt sophomore RB Joe Mixon punching a woman from summer 2014 is part of the public record.

Mixon was suspended for the entirety of the 2014 season after he was hit with a misdemeanor assault charge on allegation of punching a woman in the face that summer. The restaurant where the incident occurred recorded it on video, but that tape has yet to be released to the public. With the state ruling the video as public record, it will now be released. Oklahoma HC Bob Stoops has repeatedly defended Mixon after he served his suspension, saying over the offseason that he believes the running back has made good and has met "high standards" in the two years since the assault occurred.

Alabama senior ILB Reuben Foster was named the winner of the Butkus Award.

The Butkus Award is handed out annually to the nation's best linebacker. Foster registered 94 tackles (12.0 for loss), four sacks and a pair of passes defended. The 6-foot-1, 240-pounder was also a finalist for the Nagurski Award, but teammate Jonathan Allen ultimately won that honor.
