Alabama head coach Nick Saban says G Chance Warmack has "rare commodities" at his size.

"I just think that Chance has a unique skill set and he's got really good size, he's very powerful, he's athletic, he's got good feet, he can pass block and he can get moving in the run game," Saban said. "I think people that have his kind of balance and body control and the kind of athleticism that he has at his size are rare commodities. Everybody knows that those guys play 12, 14, 15 years. I think Chance has a chance to have that kind of career."

While campaigning for a tax increase, Louisiana governor John Bel Edwards said the LSU football team is in jeopardy of being cut.

"If you are a student attending one of these universities, it means that you will receive a grade of incomplete, many students will not be able to graduate, and student-athletes across the state at those schools will be ineligible to play next semester," Edwards said. "That means you can say farewell to college football next fall." The state of Louisiana is facing a nearly $1 billion deficit, prompting Edwards' rhetoric. He also threatened that the state would be forced to shut down hospice services if new taxes aren't approved soon. Louisiana residents need not worry about LSU football going away. We aren't sure what will play worse among Edwards' denizens, the threat of axing the Bayou Bengals or the threat of yanking treatment for the sick. One way or the other, if Edwards gets anywhere near the beloved LSU football institution, he'll find himself clearing out his office soon thereafter.

Ohio State graduate RB Warren Ball transferred to Akron.

Terry Bowden‘s Zips pick up a former four-star recruit who had a tough time cracking into the Buckeye backfield rotation behind some guy named Ezekiel Elliott. Ball was the No. 16 running back in the country coming out of high school and the No. 193 player overall by Rivals. He rushed for 189 yards on 41 carries over the past three seasons.

Louisville junior LB Trevon Young (hip) is expected to miss the entire 2016 season.

Young suffered a dislocated and fractured hip in the Music City Bowl win over Texas A&M in December. It was a devastating injury that, according to the Louisville Courier Journal, a Nashville doctor said he had not seen a similar injury suffered in a football game (only in a traumatic event like a car accident). Luckily, says Young's father, the family has been told that the injury isn't as serious as the one suffered by Bo Jackson in the early 1990s. Young posted 8.5 sacks in 2015.

USC athletic director Pat Haden underwent "an unspecified medical procedure" on Thursday.

On Wednesday, the 63-year-old Haden felt light-headed while walking and nearly collapsed outside of Heritage Hall. He received medical attention and underwent the unspecified procedure the next day. Haden, who has a pacemaker, is expected to remain hospitalized for another day, maybe two.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler and Rotoworld's Josh Norris both consider Appalachian State DL Ronald Blair a top 50 prospect.

Blair had to drop out of the East West Shrine Game due to a minor injury suffered during training, and hopefully he will be ready for the Combine. Norris placed Blair as the No. 49 prospect in his latest rankings, and Brugler followed up last night by saying Blair is a top 40 talent. The Appalachian State defender plays on the edge and inside depending on the situation, and produced an outstanding game against Clemson. Expect to hear Blair's name from others as the process goes along.

Texas interim playcaller Jay Norvell will join the football staff at Arizona State to serve as receivers coach and passing-game coordinator.

This is the fifth assistant coach departure for Texas. Norvell was promoted midseason and helped the Longhorns defeat Oklahoma. However, Charlie Strong hired Tulsa's Sterlin Gilbert to run the offense following the season. Norvell previously coached at Oklahoma before joining Texas for one season.

Southern Miss WR Michael Thomas did not receive an invitation to the NFL Combine.

Thomas will likely earn the "biggest snub" label in the days leading up to the Combine. Many were surprised Thomas participated in the NFLPA game instead of the East West Shrine or Senior Bowl, but it is time to take a step back and ask "does the NFL know something we do not?" Thomas boasts a plus 6-foot-2 200-pound frame and produced a 71-1391-14 touchdown receiving line last season.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer indicated that five-star DE Nick Bosa will not take a redshirt in 2016.

Said Meyer, "[Bosa]'s playing. He had the knee injury, but he's well ahead of schedule. Looks fantastic, and he's a little ahead of his brother at this time." The knee injury in question was a torn ACL suffered during his senior campaign with St. Thomas Aquinas. The 6-foot-4, 255-pound clone/brother of potential No. 1 pick Joey Bosa is hoping to be healthy enough for August camp. As to the hype that will inevitably follow the five-star dynamo-in-the-making, co-DC Luke Fickell said, "Nick is a mature kid that I don't think will bat an eye coming in here. Whether he wears the No. 97, whether he looks like Joey or walks like Joey, the reality is he's Nick. He's grown up with this his whole life."

At the NFL Combine, TCU QB Trevone Boykin will work out with the quarterbacks.

"I’m told Boykin has been doing receiver work during his combine preparation but presently there are no plans for him to run routes or catch passes in Indianapolis or during pro-day at TCU," wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, who brought us this dispatch. "Rather Boykin will workout at receiver as teams come to campus to individually test Josh Doctson and Kolby Listenbee." We're hoping Boykin's stubbornness (seen another way, his conviction) won't cost him a potential NFL career. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Drew Davison reported last month that the Senior Bowl moved on from Boykin because he didn't agree to exclusively play wide receiver.

Stanford graduate RB Barry J. Sanders transferred to Oklahoma State.

Sanders is the son of Heisman-winning Cowboys legend Barry Sanders. "His message to me was to keep an open mind," Sanders said. "I think that he would have wanted me to look at more schools. He definitely didn’t want me to make a decision without considering other options." Set to graduate in the spring, Sanders is eligible to play immediately in 2016. The former four-star recruit out of Oklahoma didn't live up to expectations on the East Coast. Across three seasons, Sanders rushed for 672 yards and five touchdowns, caught 12 passes for 89 yards and averaged 9.5 yards on 10 punt returns. He figures to see the field more often for the Pokes. They don't, after all, have Christian McCaffrey.

NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock compared Notre Dame WR Will Fuller to Marvin Harrison.

This is quite a comparison for a player Rotoworld does not consider a first-round prospect. To be fair, Fuller is only Mayock's No. 5-rated receiver in the class, so he isn't exactly saying that Fuller is Harrison, but rather that they share many commonalities. For instance, Fuller and Harrison share 6-foot, 185-pound frames. Harrison, recently announced as part of the 2016 Pro Football Hall of Fame class, was the No. 4 receiver selected in 1996 behind Keyshawn Johnson, Terry Glenn and Eddie Kennison.
