One NFL Scout told Mark Eckel that Notre Dame TE Tyler Eifert will "probably go somewhere in the middle of the first round, somewhere in the teens."

"And somebody is going to get a real good player there," the same scout added. Another evaluator said "(Detroit’s Brandon) Pettigrew was pretty good coming out, but this kid is better all-around then he was. This guy is the real deal. He can run. He can catch. He runs good routes. He’s not a great blocker, but he’s getting better at it, and he’ll get even better yet."

Washington State HC Mike Leach told reporters that deceased QB Tyler Hilinski showed no obvious signs of depression leading up to Hilinski's suicide last Tuesday.

"Everyone has some dark space that they work through, I'm sure, but no one really saw anything like that," Leach said. "He didn't have signs of depression. He didn't have periods where he was moping around or anything like that. He was honestly a very steady guy. Kind of guy who would lift up others when they were down." According to Leach, Hilinski had even texted teammates to schedule a throwing session on Tuesday afternoon. On that afternoon, police arrived at Hilinski's apartment at the request of a Wazzu staffer, who had been called after Hilinski didn't show at practice or respond to messages. Hilinski was found dead with a rifle and a handwritten suicide note. He had been expected to take over as Wazzu's starting quarterback in 2018. Tyler Hilinski was 21.

Former Oklahoma junior RB Abdul Adams transferred to Syracuse.

Dino Babers strikes again on the free-agent transfer market. First, he snagged former four-star Michigan State receiver Trishton Jackson last week, and now he's landed Adams, another former four-star recruit who immediately becomes the most talented back Babers has had in New York. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound Adams rushed for 542 yards with two total touchdowns on an eye-popping 9.2 yards per carry last year. Oklahoma minimized his role in the offense as the season went on due to Adams' ball-security issues and the emergence of Rodney Anderson. Adams, who must sit out next season to satisfy transfer rules, will have two years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2019. He should become Syracuse's RB1 the second he's eligible. His speed and shiftiness could lead to huge numbers in this explosive offense.

Chris Low of ESPN reports that TE coach/ST coordinator Shane Beamer is leaving Georgia for Oklahoma.

Beamer is the son of former Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer and hwas been on the Georgia staff since 2016. His exact title isn't specified, but Low reports that Beamer will assist Sooners coach Lincoln Riley in offensive gameplans. Beamer is seen by many as a rising star in the industry, and could be a head-coaching candidate in the coming years.

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield is one of seven finalists for the Lombardi Award.

The other six finalists with Mayfield are Saquon Barkley, Penn State (RB; Minkah Fitzpatrick, Alabama (S); Shaquem Griffin, UCF (LB); Lamar Jackson Louisville (QB); Joel Lanning, Iowa State (LB/QB); and Bryce Love, Stanford (RB). The Lombardi Award was limited to lineman and linebackers in the past, but opened up to include skill-position players starting this year.

Stanford redshirt senior QB Keller Chryst will transfer as a graduate.

Chryst (6'5/236) began the 2017 season as starter for the Cardinal, but failed to spark the offense to any real degree -- four of his seven starts saw him throw for one or no touchdown passes -- before being supplanted by K.J. Costello in the middle of the campaign. Costello, entering his redshirt sophomore year in 2018, should have the starting job in Palo Alto on lock-down, making this a logical transfer by Chryst. As for where he might land for his final season of eligibility, USA Today's Dan Wolken forwards that Tennessee could be a program to watch.

Miami junior CB Malek Young will undergo career-ending neck surgery.

Young (5'9/180) sustained the neck injury during the first quarter of the team's Orange Bowl loss to Wisconsin earlier this winter. It's a tough turn of events for the Hurricanes, as the former three-star recruit was really starting to come into his own. He earned All-ACC honorable mention for the 2017 season after posting 43 tackles, eight passes defended and a pair of interceptions. He started 10 games for the Hurricanes during the campaign. Michael Jackson, Trajan Bandy and Jhavonte Dean are the three lone scholarship corners remaining on roster. The Canes also have a pair of four-star cornerbacks incoming in December signees Al Blades Jr. and Gilbert Frierson, though it would probably be optimistic to expect immediate contributions out the gate from those talented youngsters.

Four-star 2018 ATH Justin Watkins has verbally committed to Florida.

Watkins had previously been committed to Texas, and also has been a verbal commitment to LSU and Florida State. Long story short, Watkins has had himself a heck of a time in his recruiting process. It appears that Florida is the final destination, and it's a big get for the Gators. ESPN ranks him second among athlete prospects, with 247 Sports calling him the 16th best receiver in the country. Reports indicate he has tremendous speed and he'll be able to return kicks immediately, and that he also is strong enough to run over receivers. It shouldn't shock anyone if Watkins is an immediate contributor for the Florida offense and special teams.

Arkansas QB Austin Allen completed 6-of-9 passes for 75 yards in helping the National to a win over the American 23-0 on Saturday in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Allen was the most effective quarterback on the National side, which isn't saying a whole lot, if we're being honest. Still, the former Razorback signal-caller did make a couple of nice throws and helped lead his squad to victory. Injury concerns and disappointing results when he was healthy likely have Allen as an UDFA come draft time, barring a huge showing in his pro day.

Texas Tech QB Nic Shimonek completed 12-of-18 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in leading the West to a 14-10 victory over the East on Saturday in the East-West Shrine Game.

On a night where offense was hard to find, Shimonek was essentially the only effective quarterback on the night. It was mostly dinks-and-dunks, but the 6-2, 218-pound quarterback did make a couple of strong throws on the afternoon. Shimonek is going to have the stigma of being a quarterback in the Air Raid system, and also will be hurt by the fact that he was inconsistent in the 2017 campaign. Still, he does have some arm strength, and this was at least a positive step toward getting the former Red Raider signal-caller NFL looks.

Virginia Tech redshirt senior RB Travon McMillian transferred to Colorado as a graduate.

McMillian (6'0/194) announced his transfer intent at the end of the 2017 season. The former four-star recruit began his career with the Hokies in high style, rushing for 1,043 yards (5.2 YPC) and seven touchdowns as a true freshman during the 2015 season. The good times would not last off that strong showing, though, as McMillian's rushing totals dropped each of the following two years. He bottomed out with just 439 yards on the ground for the most recent campaign. While McMillian was a diminishing factor as his career progressed in Blacksburg, Colorado makes for a nice landing spot for playing time with the prolific Phillip Lindsay no longer on roster.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Oregon has hired Washington State RB Jim Mastro to serve in the same capacity.

According to the Seattle Times' Stefanie Loh, Mastro decided to take the job earlier in the week, but was holding off on announcing out of respect for QB Tyler Hilinski, who was found dead in his apartment on Tuesday following an apparent suicide attempt. Mastro has been on staff with Washington State since 2012, when the program initially hired HC Mike Leach. He showed a creativity at getting his backs involved in Leach's pass-happy Air Raid, most notably during the 2016 season, when Wazzu running backs combined to total 1,660 yards on the ground and 1,034 yards receiving. With the Ducks, he'll be helping to usher in the post-Royce Freeman era. Tony Brooks-James remains in the fold in Eugene and is set to step up as starter for the 2018 season.
