Although Kansas State QB Collin Klein has noticeably struggled at East-West Shrine practices, Sirius XM Radio's Adam Caplan suggests that increased usage of option offenses in the NFL could help Klein's chances of being drafted.

"Collin Klein struggles with his mechanics," Caplan observed. "He holds onto the ball too long. He holds it high. He's got a high release and a release where he waits a second and throws it. He's gonna struggle. Now, he does run the option very well and ... with the NFL moving toward spread looks, Collin Klein could get drafted late just because he can run the option."

Alabama suspended senior ILB Trey DePriest for the opener versus West Virginia in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff on Saturday.

Head coach Nick Saban announced the suspension Wednesday, saying DePriest committed a minor NCAA infraction. We don't yet know what that infraction was, but Alabama is being overly cautious because any victory attained with an ineligible player on the field would be vacated. DePriest, a two-year starter coming off a career-high 65 tackle (7.5 for loss), had the look of a breakout player this fall. Reggie Ragland and Reuben Foster will start at linebacker for the Crimson Tide.

USC announced redshirt senior DB Josh Shaw admitted to fabricating the story about hurting his ankles while saving his nephew from drowning, and he has been suspended indefinitely.

"We are extremely disappointed in Josh," said head coach Steve Sarkisian in a release. "He let us all down. As I have said, nothing in his background led us to doubt him when he told us of his injuries, nor did anything after our initial vetting of his story. I appreciate that Josh has now admitted that he lied and has apologized. Although this type of behavior is out of character for Josh, it is unacceptable. Honesty and integrity must be at the center of our program. I believe Josh will learn from this. I hope that he will not be defined by this incident, and that the Trojan Family will accept his apology and support him." Shaw explained his two high ankle sprains on Monday by saying he saved his 7-year-old nephew from drowning. The school received several calls contradicting his story, leading to an investigation. Shaw's legal team is expected to release a statement later on Wednesday.

The investigation into USC redshirt senior DB Josh Shaw's story about saving his drowning nephew is in a "holding pattern."

"It's pretty clear that there's quite a few conflicting stories out there," USC football coach Steve Sarkisian said after practice on Wednesday. "Any information we have been provided up until this point we have pushed along to campus authorities. We're really going to let it play out in their hands up until this point and quite honestly we're in somewhat of a holding pattern. That's where we are at. Anything I do get that I can provide you guys with, I will, believe me, I will." Shaw suffered two high-ankle sprains recently and said he did so while saving his 7-year-old nephew from drowning. The school received calls that contradicted Shaw's story and subsequently launched an inquiry. Shaw is out indefinitely. "None of the players really know about the Josh Shaw situation," Leonard Williams said. "[Sarkisian] basically told us to stay focused and don't let it affect us on Saturday."

NFL media analyst Gil Brandt named Oregon State DE Obum Gwacham as his top sleeper candidate for the 2014 draft.

Brandt's 2012 preseason sleeper was Ziggy Ansah, so pay attention. Brandt loves Gwacham's length and speed; the former wide receiver has both in spades. "It's my last year and I want to contribute to the wins we'll have this season," said Gwacham. "So I thought the place to do that would be on the D-line." Said head coach Mike Riley: "It was one of the easiest transitions I've ever made in a position switch." The 6-foot-5, 236-pound athlete will try to slot into the position vacated by third-round pick Scott Crichton. In addition to impressing Brandt, Gwacham has impressed coaches. "He was coming off the edge clean and running into somebody, that looked pretty good," defensive coordinator Mark Banker said. "Then the true test came when he had to play inside and knock the tight end off and that looked pretty good. He's passed that test."

TCU will rotate redshirt junior Trevone Boykin and transfer senior Matt Joeckel at QB in Saturday's opener against Samford.

"We're playing two quarterbacks," Patterson said at his weekly news conference. Patterson said the two have been "pretty well even" in practice, adding that one has been the better performer in scrimmages and would take the first snap, but declined to identify that signal-caller. Boykin had 1,198 yards passing and a 7/7 TD/INT ratio last year as Casey Pachall's backup/competition. Joeckel backed up Ryan Tannehill and then Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M and bolted for Fort Worth as a graduate student over the winter.

Clemson senior edge rusher Corey Crawford will miss the school's season opener against Georgia due to suspension.

The suspension was handed down in March, but this is just a helpful reminder. Also sitting out the game are offensive lineman David Beasley and backup cornerback Garry Peters for an undisclosed violation of team rules. Crawford and Vic Beasley make up one of the top edge rushing tandems in the country.

Michigan redshirt freshman RB Ty Isaac's appeal for immediately eligibility was denied by the NCAA last week.

Michigan is appealing the ruling. Isaac transferred from USC after spending just one season there. His waiver was applied for on the grounds of being closer to Isaac's ailing mother. He rushed for 236 yards on 40 carries and two touchdowns last season.

Oklahoma HC Bob Stoops seemed to indicate that redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham intends to return and play for the school in 2015.

"That isn’t something that’s been decided," Stoops said of DGB. "Right now it seems that he wants to do that and is heading that way and we want to support him in every possible way." Green-Beckham will be eligible to practice and attend classes all year despite his eligibility appeal being denied. We still think it is 50-50, at best, that DGB actually stays and plays for the Sooners in 2015. His talent is incredible.

Florida HC Will Muschamp praised sophomore RB Kelvin Taylor's third down ability.

Muschamp specifically pointed out Taylor's improved receiving skills and pass protection ability. Taylor, the son of Jaguar great Fred, starting earning a large number of touches in the second half of last season, producing 508 yards and four touchdowns on 111 carries. He should be a large part of the Gators' offense this year.

Stanford redshirt sophomore Barry Sanders Jr. has been named the school's No. 2 RB.

Senior Kelsey Young will start despite missing a large portion of camp due to an ankle injury. Sanders Jr. saw most of his action at punt returner, but also took five carries for 34 yards and a touchdown. The few times he had the ball in his hands, however, Sanders Jr. seemed to channel his father's ankle breaking skills.

Washington redshirt senior edge rusher Hau'oli Kikaha is not afraid of tearing his left ACL for the third time.

"There was a lot of mental growth, the injuries taught me to be patient," Kikaha told CBS Sports' Dane Brugler. "...The injuries taught me to invest more in the program, allowed me to get coached up in the film room." The edge rusher discussed his new role at Buck linebacker in the Huskies' odd front defense. "The 3-4 allows more 1-on-1 opportunities so I can make plays and be freed up. I spent a lot of time at the "4i" position and strong end last year so it's not too far off." Brugler spoke with one NFC North scout who said Kikaha's medicals will be imperative to his evaluation.
