Baylor QB Nick Florence will not pursue a career in the NFL.

"I've decided to hang up my cleats and finish my master’s in December," Florence said. "My wife and I have spent the last one and a half months talking about it, and it all came down to what we wanted in life, and it didn't include playing football." It is an interesting choice, since far worse players have retired before entering the NFL, but it is refreshing to see this kind of life choice made prior to the draft.

BYU AD Tom Holmoe indicated that the university is interested in joining a Power 5 conference.

"I really would love to see our football play at that level, be playing in a P5 conference," Holmoe said. "I want our players ... in all of our sports to be able to play at the highest level." While the university is interested in a Power 5 future, Holmoe added that BYU would not be adjusting their statute barring competition on Sundays (for religious reasons). The Cougars could join the Big 12 if that conference ever opts to expand (maybe? someday?), but Holmoe is not lobbying for his team's inclusion. He believes their achievements more than speak for themselves. "It's in our best interest not to be pushing the envelope," he said. "They're well aware of what we've done."

Baylor has released four-star 2016 DE Brandon Bowen from his National Letter of Intent.

The school had until July 10 to respond to Bowen's request. Bowen joins six other 2016 commitments who are no longer committed to Baylor for the 2016 season, with a handful of those ending up at Texas. Bowen could be the next, but the edge rusher also received offers from Michigan, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee and TCU during his recruitment process. As far as we can tell, Baylor has released every 2016 recruit from their commitment if a request was placed.

Four-star 2017 T Joel Honigford committed to Michigan.

"While the ESPN 300 big man could certainly benefit from a redshirt and some time to physically develop," ESPN's Craig Haubert wrote, "he is still a good player who could at least come in and compete and offer some depth if needed." The analyst would like to see added strength and technique, but notes that he already "display[s] good knee bend and balance." With the 6-foot-6, 250-pounder now in the fold, the Wolverines have secured commitments from eight ESPN 300 prospects (the outlet ranks Honigford No. 199). That includes four ESPN 300 names in the month of June alone.

Michigan canceled its satellite camp in American Samoa due to concerns over the Zika virus.

HC Jim Harbaugh and a portion of his staff were set to host a satellite camp in American Samoa on Thursday. No longer. John Raynar, communications director for the Republican Party of American Samoa, took to Facebook to say that Harbaugh's family doctor advised him not to travel due to concerns regarding the health and safety of his pregnant wife, Sarah. Zika poses heightened health risks to pregnant women.

In their first release of the 2018 Scout 100, Scout.com ranked five-star 2018 QB Trevor Lawrence as the No. 1 prospect in his class.

Scout.com's Chad Simmons sort of let the cat out of the bag on this one back in May, writing at the time that Lawrence would "likely" be the outlet's No. 1 overall prospect for 2018 to start. And thus it has come to pass. In breaking down the 6-foot-5, 194-pound gunslinger, Simmons writes that he has "NFL written all over him" and adds that "[a]s a passer, he has great size, he can make every throw, he spins it with the best of them, and he is very smart on the field." In his two seasons at Cartersville High School (Georgia), Lawrence has racked up 6,697 passing yards with a lofty 69/11 TD/INT ratio. In 2015, he led his team to a 15-0 record and a state championship. Simmons tags Clemson, Georgia and Tennessee as the probable front-runners for the freshly-minted No. 1's commitment. Lawrence has already spoken about the possibility of competing with Georgia freshman QB Jacob Eason in 2018 should he opt for the Bulldogs. Confidence, not an issue.

Virginia Tech sophomore S Adonis Alexander and redshirt freshman DE Houshun Gaines were sentenced to probation and 24 hours of community service for their possession of marijuana charges.

Alexander and Gaines were arrested in late April and faced misdemeanor marijuana possession charges (with Alexander also facing a possession of alcohol charge). With the matter now officially settled, all eyes turn to HC Justin Fuente, who said at the time of the arrest that the plan was to take a "wait-and-see" approach before doling out punishments. For the time being, the pair remains in indefinite suspension limbo.

Oklahoma junior CB Jordan Thomas faces charges of public intoxication, assault and battery and interference stemming from an early Thursday morning arrest.

This according to the arrest record from the Cleveland County sheriff's office. Further details regarding the exact circumstances are not known at this time. Thomas has had his run-ins with the law before, most recently in a December arrest after he skipped a court date relating to a speeding violation. The 6-foot-1, 183-pounder has also been suspended from the Sooners twice in his career. HC Bob Stoops has yet to comment on this most recent arrest. Last season, Thomas earned All-Big 12 second-team honors after recording 46 tackles and intercepting five passes.

Scout.com's Greg Biggins called Alabama five-star 2017 RB Najee Harris "one of those generational talents that you just don't see very often."

Harris has received universal praise as prospect, but Biggins' comment crystallizes the national perception among those in the know. No wonder that both he and colleague Brandon Huffman project the 6-foot-2, 220-pounder as a potential Heisman winner down the road. Biggins called him perhaps the best running back prospect to come out of West Coast in a decade and wrote that Harris "has size, power, speed, the ability to run inside or outside, shows great hands out of the backfield, is highly competitive and works very hard off the field." Adding to the intrigue, Harris is also viewed as a prospect who could potentially flip on his commitment. Regardless of where he lands, he has the potential to be an immediate impact freshman in 2017.

A rival Big 12 assistant coach told ESPN that Texas HC Charlie Strong's efforts to bring in former Baylor recruits this month "will go down in the history books as one of the best recruiting jobs ever."

After Baylor lost a number of high-profile recruits following their move to terminate HC Art Briles at the end of May, Strong's work to bring them into the Longhorns fold was nothing short of remarkable. Four-star WR Devin Duvernay, four-star OL J.P. Urquidez, four-star OL Patrick Hudson and three-star ATH Donovan Duvernay all hooked up with Strong's crew this month. Add this to the fact that Texas made an impressive National Signing Day push back in February. One Big 12 assistant believes that "[i]t’s this type of attention that will help them with the 2017 and 2018 classes, too. They’ll surely get a bump after this amazing run." That assistant offered one other piece of high praise, saying, "It has to be one of the top five classes in the country after this."

The NCAA is implementing a rule in which all bowl-eligible teams with 6-6 records are required to be given their bowl assignments before a team with a 5-7 record can be considered.

Last season, three teams with 5-7 records were awarded bowl bids based on APR (Academic Progress Rate). This in and of itself is not the issue -- there were 80 slots available, 77 of which were filled by 6-6 teams, thus three more were needed. Instead, the issue comes in the fact that the Foster Farms Bowl passed over Mountain West squads Nevada (6-6) and Colorado State (7-5) in favor of placing a 5-7 Nebraska team against 8-5 UCLA. This will not be a possibility this coming season. All 6-6 teams will first be chosen for the respective bowls, at which point (assuming there are still slots available), the 5-7 team with the highest APR will be able to choose which available bowl to attend.

Ohio State has hired former Kentucky head coach Joker Phillips as a quality control assistant.

Phillips previously served as the Browns WR coach after being let go by Florida for appearing in a photo with a recruit during a "dead period." Phillips' main role will likely focus on recruitment, and it is easy to presume he's already on the road working for the Buckeyes.
