Scouts Inc. ranks Oregon State WR Markus Wheaton as the 87th best prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft.

This puts Wheaton as the 10th best receiver in the draft. We like Wheaton quite a bit more, but the top of the receiver class is very good, with a nice blend of outside and slot targets. The Oregon State Beaver made a living taking the top off coverages, but his ability to break off his routes with speed is very good.

The Oregonian's Andrew Greif reports that three Oregon players have been hospitalized following "grueling" strength and conditioning workouts last week.

Per Greif, the three players in question are OLs Doug Brenner and Sam Poutasi and TE Cam McCormick. While the trio remains hospitalized at PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center in Springfield, Oregon, they are said to be listed in fair condition. Greif writes that the workouts have been "described by multiple sources as akin to military basic training, with one said to include up to an hour of continuous push-ups and up-downs." In a released statement, Oregon said, "While we cannot comment on the health of our individual students, we have implemented modifications as we transition back into full training to prevent further occurrences."

Cal hired Eastern Washington HC Beau Baldwin to serve as offensive coordinator.

Baldwin takes over for Jake Spavital, who is moving on to tackle the offensive-coordinating position at West Virginia. With Eastern Washington (he served as head coach for nine season), Baldwin's offenses were about as explosive as they come. In the FCS ranks, the Eagles finished third in points scored in 2016, posting 42.36 on average. That wasn't even their most potent season in recent memory, as they finished first in the FCS in scoring back in 2014. We love the hire, as it provides a perfect yin to the defensive yang of new HC Justin Wilcox (formerly Wisconsin's defensive coordinator).

Alabama has promoted offensive analyst Mike Locksley to a full-time offensive assistant.

Just what Locksley's role with the Tide will be next season isn't quite clear at this juncture. The university did not provide further detail as to his exact responsibilities. This past season, he worked with fellow offensive analyst Steve Sarkisian, before Sark took over as offensive coordinator for Lane Kiffin prior to the National Championship Game. Before he joined Alabama for the 2016 season, the 47-year-old Locksley previously served as Maryland's offensive coordinator from 2012-2015.

The NCAA has denied Louisiana-Lafayette senior QB Anthony Jennings' request for an additional year of eligibility.

As Jennings' request for an extra year had nothing to do with an injury, it was always going to be a shoot-the-moon scenario. No such luck. The quarterback's argument was that he played so sparingly in 2015 with LSU -- appearing in only two games and posting no statistics in that space -- that it should have been treated like a redshirt year. The NCAA is not buying that argument. Jennings transferred over to Louisiana-Lafayette after that 2015 season and started for the Rajin' Cajuns this past campaign. As he has been nixed on the additional year of eligibility, that officially puts Jennings' collegiate career to rest. "I wanted to wish him the best for the future and thank him for his time here as a Ragin’ Cajun," said HC Mark Hudspeth. "He has been a class act."

ESPN's Chris Low reports that former Tennessee HC Phillip Fulmer is a "prime candidate" for the university's athletic directorship.

Fulmer served as head coach with the Volunteers for 16 seasons (1992-2008) and compiled a 152-52 record along the way. After his squad posted a 5-7 campaign in 2008, he was shown the door. Current AD Dave Hart is expected to step down in retirement before his contract runs out in June, meaning that if Fulmer was hired for the position, the 66-year-old would likely take over at some point this spring.

South Carolina senior LB Skai Moore announced he will return to school in 2017.

Great news for Will Muschamp and crew, as Moore decided to return for a fifth year after losing 2016 to a neck injury. Moore will take a redshirt after aggravating a herniated disk from the 2015 season. The star LB recorded 110 tackles in 2015 to earn him All-SEC honors. He's led the Gamecocks in tackles in all three seasons he's played.

UCLA fired offensive line coach Adrian Klemm.

Though Klemm is an ace recruiter, this is probably the right move. Not only have his lines struggled the past few years despite ample talent, but the NCAA slapped Klemm with a two-year show-cause order last September for recruiting violations. That foible got him suspended in the spring of 2015. "Adrian is a friend, which makes change difficult sometimes," UCLA coach Jim Mora said in a statement. "But right now, this is what is in the best interest of the program."

USC junior CB Adoree' Jackson declared for the NFL Draft.

The winner of the 2016 Jim Thorpe Award as the nation's best cornerback, Jackson moonlighted as a receiver and kick returner at USC. Jackson is a twitched-up athlete who reached the qualifiers for the Rio Summer Games in the long jump event. An anonymous scout told NFL.com in November that Jackson looked like a second-rounder. Walter Football (36th) and SB Nation (53rd) have rankings that mirror that opinion, and many industry mock exercises have omitted Jackson from Rd. 1. NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah has concerns about Jackson's size (5-foot-11, 185 pounds) and compares him to the Bengals' Adam Jones. Jackson's athleticism isn't in question, but he'll need to work on his technique. Despite that Thorpe award, Jackson was inconsistent in coverage for a top prospect in 2016.

Alabama TE O.J. Howard accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

In so doing, he becomes arguably the best prospect to participate in this year's event. Howard joins teammates Ryan Anderson, Dalvin Tomlinson and Cole Mazza in Mobile. A potential first-rounder, Howard had 45 receptions for 595 yards and three touchdowns this past season. An AFC area scout comped him to Jimmy Graham earlier this month.

TCU hired former California HC Sonny Dykes for a role yet to be determined.

This is a nice get for Gary Patterson, who essentially replaces co-offensive coordinator Doug Meachum (who left for Kansas) on the staff with Dykes. Dykes, an Air Raid guru, went 19-30 at Cal and 22-15 in the three years before that as the coach of Louisiana Tech.

Baylor redshirt sophomore WR Ishmael Zamora will forego his final two seasons of collegiate eligibility to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

Color us surprised. Zamora had a chance to be Baylor's No. 1 wideout in 2017 with K.D. Cannon previously opting to declare for the NFL. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Zamora is following suit, though. The NFL will no-doubt ask him about a summer video depicting him abusing his dog -- Baylor suspended him for the first three games of the season due to the incident. In his truncated 10-game season in 2016, Zamora logged a 63-809-8 receiving line. CBS Sports lists him as the No. 35 wideout in the 2019 class, a sign of just how surprising this early draft declaration has been. The later rounds of Day 3 are the best he can realistically hope for come the spring, with undrafted free agency also well within the field of play.
