ESPN's Mel Kiper suggests that Marshall WR Aaron Dobson is a sleeper to be drafted late in the first round this April.

Kiper described Dobson as "a guy people are not talking about who could emerge maybe in late first round, or in the second-round discussion." Dobson has been invited to this year's Senior Bowl and will show his wares in Mobile (AL) next week. Injured for three games in 2012, Dobson managed just 57 catches for 679 yards and three touchdowns as a senior. He scored 12 touchdowns in 2011.

Former Oklahoma freshman QB Chris Robison, who was dismissed two weeks ago, said he is transferring to FAU.

Robison was a highly regarded recruit who instantly ran into trouble at Oklahoma, leading to a dismissal before playing a single game for the Sooners. Kiffin's strategy is obvious, bring in former high profile recruits until he can leave his mark on recruiting classes. Robison likely will need to sit out the season.

Auburn senior WR John Franklin III transferred to FAU as a graduate.

This will be Franklin's fourth school in five years. Ticking them off, he signed with Florida State as a highly regarded quarterback recruit in 2014, transferred to East Mississippi Community College (of 'Last Chance U' fame) in 2015, transferred to Auburn prior to the 2016 season and now is off to Florida Atlantic. He transitioned from quarterback to wide receiver this spring. Should he opt to move back to his original position, he will have a lot of ground to make up on Jason Driskel and D'Andre Johnson if he were to make good on what will be a long shot to earn starting reps this season.

Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman reports that the Penn State Board of Trustees will discuss a contract extension for HC James Franklin this week.

There have been rumblings of an extension for Franklin throughout the offseason, with AD Sandy Barbour essentially confirming at the beginning of July that a new deal was in the works. Franklin and the Nittany Lions are coming off an 11-3 season and enter 2017 with sky-high expectations.

West Virginia suspended sophomore WR Marcus Simms for the season-opener against Virginia Tech.

"While every case is unique and discipline imposed is based on varying factors, this suspension is warranted," said HC Dana Holgorsen. "It is my hope that Marcus works hard to fulfill his obligation as a member of our community and as a member of our football program." Simms (6'0/196) was arrested on charges of DUI and driving on a revoked license early Sunday morning after being initially pulled over for a broken taillight. He was expected to take on a bigger role in the offense this season after logging a 6-95-1 receiving line as a true freshman. West Virginia is looking mighty thin at receiver at this juncture.

Kentucky redshirt senior T Cole Mosier will miss the 2017 season due to a torn ACL.

Mosier (6'6/342) suffered the severe knee injury during the team's first scrimmage over the weekend. In a statement, HC Mark Stoops said that the redshirt senior "helped set the example of hard work that is the theme of this program, as he came in as a walk-on and earned a scholarship." This past season, Mosier started 10 games, missing three due to injury. With his collegiate career ended by this injury, sophomore T Landon Young is expected to start at left tackle for the coming season.

Wisconsin and Notre Dame announced that they will play a series split between Lambeau Field and Solider Field for 2020 and 2021.

Wisconsin will be the "home team" when the two teams tango at Lambeau on October 3, 2020, while Notre Dame will return ostensible hosting honors at Soldier Field on September 25, 2021. The two squads have played 16 times (Notre Dame holds an 8-6-2 series edge), but none since 1964.

Virginia Tech redshirt freshman QB Joshua Jackson has been named the starter for the coming season.

Jackson (6'1/211) took the lead over JUCO transfer A.J. Bush and true freshman Hendon Hookier via a strong spring for the Hokies. He carried that momentum into camp and will now have the honor of taking over starter duties for the departed Jerod Evans. Jackson was a four-star recruit in the 2016 class and ranked as Rivals' No. 23 dual-threat quarterback prospect coming out of high school.

247Sports' Thomas Goldkamp reports that the seven Florida players suspended for the season-opener were involved in a form of credit card fraud.

Troubled wideout Antonio Callaway was the biggest name of the seven suspended. While Florida HC Jim McElwain did not divulge the specific reason for the suspensions, Goldkamp writes that "a misuse of school-issued funds intended for specific use" was the culprit, adding that "[s]ome of the players involved used the funds from part of their scholarship agreement to buy electronics equipment, then later reported the cards stolen" and that "[s]ome players sold the electronics equipment purchased with the school-issued funds." Callaway has already run into trouble multiple times in Gainesville and is not putting his best foot forward for NFL Draft purposes.

Auburn named redshirt sophomore QB Jarrett Stidham their starter for the coming season.

Stidham beat out incumbent starter Sean White for the starting honors. The Baylor transfer has long been viewed as the frontrunner for the job. He was a five-star recruit out of high school and saw three games of starting action as a true freshman with the Bears in 2015, throwing for 1,265 yards with a 12/2 TD/INT ratio while rushing for 70 yards and two scores. We like Stidham's potential to help level up what was a limited passing game last season. Auburn should be considered a darkhorse Playoff contender with him manning the ship.

West Virginia sophomore WR Marcus Simms was arrested on Sunday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence and driving on a revoked license.

Simms was pulled over for a broken taillight, after which police caught a whiff of marijuana and noticed marijuana cigarettes in the ashtray. The 6-foot, 196-pound sophomore reportedly showed signs of glassy, bloodshot eyes and was slurring his speech. West Virginia has yet to comment on the arrest or move to suspend Simms, but given that this is his second DUI in the space of four months -- he was previously arrested in May -- he might be facing an in-season suspension. Playing as a true freshman last season, Simms caught six passes for 95 yards and a touchdown. Simms was looking like a prime contender to start prior to this arrest and given that Jovon Durante has not yet even arrived in camp due to a personal matter, the Mountaineers' receiving corps is in a tenuous state at this time.

Three San Diego State players have come down with chicken pox.

"I’m afraid that it might not be just three of them. The team’s been together for a whole week now. It’s dramatic if we lose a few more. … What if it hits 10 other ones?," said HC Rocky Long. Patient zero in this case is LB Tyler Morris, with the virus then latching on to LB Temerick Harper (who sat next to Morris during a meeting) and Harper's roommate, T Ryan Pope. All three players are on medication. Chicken pox immunity comes from either contracting the disease -- after which, home free -- or vaccination.
