Despite a previous report stating otherwise, USC QB Matt Barkley will not throw at the Combine.

He will wait until USC's Pro Day on March 27 to throw. Prior to this confirmation from Adam Schefter, reports had been posted in both directions on whether Barkley would throw in Indy. Perhaps his injured right shoulder has not fully healed, but the Trojan will be one of the few quarterbacks to not fully compete during on-field drills. Barkley has not determined if he will participate in other Combine activities.

Alabama received a verbal commitment from four-star 2017 JUCO CB Jhavonte Dean.

Tip of the cap to SEC Country's Chris Kirschner for this news. At least somewhat surprisingly, Dean is Alabama's first corner commitment in the 2017 class. They are also nipping at the heels of stud Ohio State corner commit Shaun Wade, but if they are to flip Wade, that likely won't come for a while. For his part, the 6-foot-2, 180-pound Dean ranks as 247Sports' No. 1 overall JUCO corner prospect in the 2017 class. He is a speedster and has run the 40-yard dash in the low-to-mid 4.30's during athletic testing this offseason.

Louisville HC Bobby Petrino said that sophomore QB Lamar Jackson is "going to be the face of our program for a while."

Petrino brought Jackson to the ACC Football Kickoff media event because he thinks his young quarterback is ready to handle the spotlight. A year ago, the 6-foot-3, 196-pounder felt uncomfortable during interviews, but he said that "[i]t's OK now." He also spoke to increased expectations. "Last year we were trying to show everyone we were a young team, that we could go out there and play," Jackson said. "This year is a whole 'nother story. More mature, older now." A Power 5 coach told ESPN earlier this offseason that Jackson is primed to "blow up this year."

FSU junior RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) indicated that he feels like he has returned to full health.

"I'm very ready, very confident. I'm just excited about this season, going into it a healthy Dalvin," Cook said at the ACC Football Kickoff on Friday. He underwent shoulder surgery at the beginning of April to shore up an offseason ailment. Injuries are just about the only thing that seems to be able to slow down the 6-foot, 200-pounder. He dealt with hamstring issues at times during the 2015 campaign but still managed to rush for 1,691 yards (7.4 YPC) and 19 touchdowns in 12 games.

Michigan State hired former Lions executive Sheldon White to serve as a program consultant.

White had served the Lions faithfully in a variety of capacities -- including interim general manager and vice president of pro personnel -- for the past 19 years, but was let go this offseason. In a statement, he said, "Michigan State has a great program and I’m looking forward to joining in and giving whatever insight I can provide. Anywhere I can help out and wherever Coach Dantonio needs me to go, that’s where I’ll be."

BYU formally notified the Big 12 that it is interested in joining the conference.

While BYU would be open to potentially discussing a football-only agreement with the Big 12, AD Tom Holmoe told ESPN that the school's preference would be to become a full member of the conference. "We're obviously open to listening to what they want to do. We're going to go through this process with an open mind to listen to what they have to say," Holmoe said. He believes his university is in a strong position, here, noting that "[t]he criteria they list fit us well." In an anonymous ESPN poll of Big 12 coaches regarding expansion preferences, BYU and Houston were tagged as the most desirable programs.

Louisville senior LB Trevon Young (hip) will take a medical redshirt for the 2016 season.

"[Young] was really stressing out about trying to come back for this season," HC Bobby Petrino told 93.9 The Ville, "and he just got to a point where he didn't better for a while. So I think it's been a relief to him to know that he's redshirting." The 6-foot-4, 229-pounder is recovering from a debilitating hip fracture and dislocation suffered against Texas A&M during December's Music City Bowl. He subsequently underwent surgery. Last season, Young recorded 32 tackles (10 for loss), 8.5 sacks, an interception and two forced fumbles.

Uncommitted four-star 2017 LB Jacob Phillips will take official visits to Oregon, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Alabama and LSU.

Phillips will take an official visit to Oregon when they host UC-Davis on September 3, Oklahoma when they host ULM on September 10, Notre Dame when they host Michigan State on September 17, Alabama when they host Kent State on September 24 and LSU when they host Missouri on October 1. Rivals recruiting analyst Woody Wommack notes that the Sooners should be considered the front-runner for the 6-foot-3, 231-pounder's commitment at this juncture. Oregon is the only school in that bunch not to receive an unofficial visit. Wommack colleague Nick Krueger noted early in the summer that Phillips' "competitive nature combined with his size" helped turn him into a favorite of coaches during the offseason camp circuit.

Florida State's contingent at the ACC Kickoff has not shed any light on their quarterback starter for 2016.

Dalvin Cook did tell reporters he believes the Seminoles are good enough to beat Clemson this coming season (he noted that they were "just a few plays away" in 2015), but who might be leading the charge against the Tigers on October 29 is another question. HC Jimbo Fisher said that this summer, players in offseason workouts would tell him that redshirt senior QB Sean Maguire might perform better one day, only for redshirt freshman QB Deondre Francois to come out on top in the next session. FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman speculated in mid-June that Francois would overtake Maguire "sooner [rather] than later."

ACC commissioner John Swofford indicated that the NBA's decision to pull the All-Star Game from Charlotte will have no bearing on the ACC Championship Game.

Adam Silver and the NBA are backing off on plans to play the 2017 All-Star Game in Charlotte due to North Carolina House Bill 2, a law which could be seen as limiting anti-discrimination protections for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. While the ACC has yet to take that step for its conference title game, played annually in Charlotte at the end of the season, Swofford said that the conference would reevaluate matters in October. "Right now what our schools want to do is to see how this plays out and where it ends up," he explained, "because it's still in process to one degree or another and the courts may well ultimately decide that."

Arkansas redshirt senior RB Kody Walker squatted 700 lbs on Thursday.

The achievement might be even more impressive considering Walker broke his right foot during a practice session in mid-April. He was fully cleared in June. The Razorbacks lost both Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams to the NFL, along with quarterback Brandon Allen and tight end Hunter Henry. The Razorbacks will basically be fielding an entirely new set of skill players this season, and Walker should be a productive member of the backfield.

The Ivy League has volunteered to test moving kickoffs to the 40-yard line during the 2016 season.

Touchbacks will also line up at the 20-yard line. Normally, teams kick off at the 35-yard line and touchbacks are taken at the 25-yard line. For years, some have suggested kickoffs could be completely eliminated in the future, as it is viewed as the most dangerous series in football. The Ivy League could be viewed as "progressive" in adopting rule changes, as they have banned tackling in practice.
