Alabama redshirt junior RT D.J. Fluker will participate in Senior Bowl interviews but will not practice due to injury.

Phil Savage, who runs the Senior Bowl, added a clause this year that stated if a redshirt junior graduated in December of 2012, they would be eligible to participate in the Senior Bowl. Fluker will be the only Crimson Tide offensive lineman in Mobile but will not practice due to a strained calf.

UCF LB Shaqueem Griffin won the inaugural Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year Award.

Griffin takes home the award over fellow finalists Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick and Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph. The award goes to the player who shows "exemplary leadership" on and off the field at the FBS level. The 6-foot-1, 213-pound linebacker was among the best defenders in the AAC last year and helped UFC go undefeated despite having his left hand amputated at an early age due to amniotic band syndrome. He will participate in the NFL Scouting Combine next week, and is currently viewed as an early Day 3 selection in the 2018 NFL Draft by most analysts.

Wake Forest senior WR Tabari Hines will pursue transfer opportunities after graduating in the spring.

A school spokesman reports that he's "looking into opportunities to find a place to start." Hines' departure would be a big loss for the Demon Deacons, and potentially a significant gain for whichever program he transfers to. He caught 53 passes for 683 yards in the 2017 campaign, and also scored seven touchdowns. The 5-foot-10, 170-pound receiver will become immediately eligible for whatever program he transfers to since he will leave with his degree.

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield, UCLA QB Josh Rosen and Wyoming QB Josh Allen will all throw at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Get your popcorn ready. The three quarterbacks join Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph as top signal-callers who have announced that they will throw at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on March 3, and USC's Sam Darnold and Louisville's Lamar Jackson are also expected to take part. This doesn't come as a major surprise, as it's been an Olympic cycle since we've seen a top-ranked quarterback not throw at the event when Teddy Bridgewater and Johnny Manziel elected to pass, or not pass, to be more accurate, in 2014. Mayfield, Rosen are all very likely to go in the first round, but a strong showing in Indianapolis next week will help cement their status.

New Mexico redshirt senior RB Tyrone Owens (academics) will not participate in spring practice.

Owens (5'9/187) has been an integral performer for New Mexico over the past two seasons, having rushed for 1,867 yards across 24 games played in that space. With classroom issues holding him back for the spring, that'll open the door for Daevon Vigilant, Kentrail Moran and Zahneer Shuler to see closer looks. JUCO transfer Ahmari Davis will also be in the mix. It's a very inexperienced running backs room beyond Owens. To whit, if we set Davis aside, Vigilant, Moran and Shuler have combined for just 36 yards on 20 carries. We'll have to wait and see whether Owens can overcome his academic hurdles by the start of August camp. If he can't, that would put the Lobos in a very tough spot.

Purdue redshirt senior TE Cole Herdman (toe) is not expected for spring practice.

Herdman (6'4/245) underwent offseason toe surgery to repair ligament damage which he sustained midway through the 2017 season. He's not yet healed up from that procedure. This past year, he logged a 20-331-3 receiving line across 12 games played. While he caught 15 fewer passes than in 2016, he mostly made up for that deficit by doing more damage when he did catch the ball -- his yards-per-reception mark rose from 9.8 to 16.6. With Herdman sidelined, Brycen Hopkins figures to handle the bulk of first-team reps in spring practice. The Boilermakers will get that practice underway on Monday.

UConn HC Randy Edsall said that he would be in favor of playing student-athletes.

A report from Yahoo Sports broke on Friday revealing that several college basketball players -- including Michigan State's Miles Bridges and Duke's Wendell Carter -- had accepted payment from the offices of former agent Andy Miller. This once again sparked conversation about the long-discussed possibility that collegiate athletes should simply be paid, period. Edsall took to Twitter to call college football a "farm system," writing that college football programs "will employee more people in their scouting departments than the NFL and still not [pay] the players with all the money being brought into the Conferences." Change to the current system is probably still a ways away, if it's coming at all, but the discussion's not going to stop.

Purdue HC Jeff Brohm said that redshirt senior QB David Blough (ankle) will take part in spring practice.

Blough (6'1/202) suffered a right ankle dislocation in early November, an injury which required surgery and sidelined him for the remainder of the 2017 campaign. He said in mid-January that he was shooting to be available for spring practice. Mission accomplished, it would appear. Brohm said on Friday that the redshirt senior is "way ahead of schedule" in his rehab. The Boilermakers will boot up spring practice this coming Monday. It represents a golden chance for Blough to attempt to make some headway in the race to start during the coming season. He's competing with Elijah Sindelar for starting honors, but Sindelar is still rehabbing from a torn ACL and is not expected to take part in spring work, at least not to any serious degree. Blough will have every opportunity to impress in his absence.

Arizona redshirt senior QB Brandon Dawkins will transfer as a graduate.

Dawkins (6'3/195) opened the 2017 season as Arizona's starting quarterback, but was supplanted by supernova Khalil Tate in early October. He would play sparingly the rest of the way. Tate is very much a Heisman contender and Dawkins' decision to transfer out is as logical as they come. He'll be graduating in May and will be eligible to play immediately with another FBS outfit come the start of the 2018 season. For his career at Arizona, Dawkins finishes up having thrown for 2,418 yards with a 15/12 TD/INT ratio across three active years. He's also a strong running threat, having rushed for a combined 1,582 yards and 20 touchdowns during his time in the desert.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Michigan OC Tim Drevno is resigning from his post.

Drevno was initially hired as part of HC Jim Harbaugh's inaugural Wolverines staff during the winter of 2015. Michigan's offenses have largely been stagnant under his watch, particularly on the passing side of the equation. The ineptitude has stood in stark contrast to what UM has been fielding on defense. Where the team turns to on offense now that Drevno is out of the equation is currently unknown. Michigan hired Jim McElwain as wide receivers coach earlier this week and he would seem to be a respectable candidate to step in for Drevno, though 247Sports is hearing that the program has not yet decided their next move.

Multiple outlets are reporting that USC sophomore RB Stephen Carr (back) will miss spring practice.

Carr (6'0/180) is set to take over as Trojans lead back in the wake of Ronald Jones' exit for the draft, but due to a herniated disc in his back, USC will have to lean on Vavae Malepeai and Aca’Cedric Ware in practice while he mends. There is no timetable for Carr's return to action at this juncture. As a true freshman, he rushed for 363 yards (5.6 YPC) and three touchdowns while adding another 188 yards on 17 receptions. He flashed on multiple occasions, but also dealt with a nagging foot injury which forced him to miss four games. USC boots up spring practice on March 6.

Former NFL QB Michael Vick referred to Louisville QB Lamar Jackson as "a spitting image of me."

Vick appeared on the 'Move the Sticks' podcast this week and had plenty to say on Jackson, who has received his fair share of "right-handed Michael Vick" comps as he preps for the spring draft. Vick is down for those comps. What he's not down for? Talk of Jackson shifting to receiver. Explained the former athletic star, "... for anybody to say Lamar Jackson is a receiver, I don't think they understand the quarterback position." Former Colts GM Bill Polian made waves earlier this week when he said that the 6-foot-3, 205-pounder was "too short" to play quarterback. We find this patently absurd, though it does add at least the slightest bit of intrigue to measurements at next week's NFL Scouting Combine.
