South Carolina RB Marcus Lattimore has visits with the New England Patriots and St. Louis Rams.

The Patriots seem to love high-character players and running backs, which is why their interest makes sense. As for the Rams, they recently lost longtime running back Steven Jackson to the Atlanta Falcons in free agency and need a powerful, downhill runner. If or when Lattimore is cleared medically to play football, he could be an option for the team. Lattimore recently did a workout for all 32 teams.

Former Clemson graduate ILB Kellen Jones transferred to Wisconsin.

Jones, who received his economics degree from Clemson and is eligible to play immediately, recorded 29 tackles across 13 games last year. He's expected to compete with Leon Jacobs and T.J. Edwards for a starting ILB spot, where the Badgers have no returning starters. Jones began his career at Michigan, transferred to Oklahoma before playing a down, and then followed defensive coordinator Brent Venables to Clemson.

Former Detroit Lions president Matt Millen predicted that Penn State junior QB Christian Hackenberg will apply for early entry into the NFL draft in 2016 and go in the top five.

"This is going to be his last year, too," Millen said. "I don't see him staying four years. He is really talented. ... He's a top-five pick." The 6-foot-4, 236-pound Hackenberg had a horrid 12/15 TD/INT ratio in 2014 and also fumbled nine times. Most experts blame those struggles on other factors, such as a new coaching staff and a terrible offensive line; Hackenberg was sacked an amazing 44 times. As we've said before, Hackenberg is out of excuses this fall. We reserve judgement until then.

Florida redshirt freshman QB Will Grier has gained a significant amount of weight and now stands at 215 lbs.

Grier was listed at 195 lbs during his recruitment and then at 200 lbs last season. The gators open practice on Thursday, and Grier seems to be the frontrunner for the No. 1 job. He fits what new head coach Jim McElwain has previously used at the position, although McElwain also considers mobility a positive. The biggest question for the Gators will be their offensive line.

Ohio State junior RB Ezekiel Elliott forced 41 missed tackles in 2014, according to Pro Football Focus.

On the season, Elliott rushed for 1,878 yards and 18 touchdowns on 273 carries. Elliott really didn't get it going until the fourth game against Cincinnati, so it is absolutely possible he puts up better production this season. Josh Norris recently looked at a large number of Big 10 prospects and was amazed by Elliott's skills. He creates so many yards for himself and maximizes his blocking by reading positioning and strengths.

UCLA head coach Jim Mora was not ready to name a starting quarterback at Pac-12 media days, but he said he doesn't anticipate using multiple quarterbacks.

"I’d rather use one. I think that is the most beneficial way to build your team and consistency is to use one," Mora said. "But we’ll see. My gut instinct is to name a guy and support the hell out of him. That’s what I’ve tried to do." With Brett Hundley off to the NFL and Asiantii Woulard having transferred, the QB race is down to Jerry Neuheisel, Mike Fafaul and freshman phenom Josh Rosen. Most fans want Rosen inserted as starter on Day 1, but Mora is not yet ready to do so. "He hasn’t taken a snap at this level. So I don’t want to put too many expectations," Mora said. "I’ll let others put expectations on them. I think if Josh reaches his potential every day at the end of his time at UCLA we’ll look back and say he was a success."

Michigan State redshirt junior edge player Shilique Calhoun is "overrated" and a certainty to get over-drafted, postulates TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Shockingly, the analyst grades Calhoun, who some see as a first-round lock, as a third-rounder. "Many salivate over Calhoun but I just don’t know where he lines up at the next level," Pauline wrote. "He’s small for defensive end and lacks the speed for outside linebacker. Calhoun will be over drafted due to his pass rushing skills." The 6-foot-4, 250-pound Calhoun, a two-time first-team All-Big Ten pick, reportedly received a Round 2 grade from the advisory committee after last season.

Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil and his stepfather have each agreed not to pursue legal action against one another.

The Clarion-Ledger reports that both parties' domestic violence charges will be formally dropped on Monday. Reportedly, Tunsil’s stepfather, Lindsey Miller, got into an altercation with Tunsil's mother, ending when Tunsil punched him. Miller's version of the story is that the argument arose over Tunsil’s connection to sports agents. The NCAA is investigating the situation, but Tunsil will avoid legal problems. Tunsil is a top-10 overall prospect.

Oregon sophomore RB Royce Freeman has dropped 8 lbs and now weighs 222 lbs.

We always hear about skill position players gaining weight, so it is refreshing to hear about running backs losing weight. We don't have numbers to back it up, but it appears to help careers more than adding mass. Freeman was one of the best running backs in the country last season in just his first year, and could be the focus of Oregon's offensive gameplan this year.

Ohio State senior DL Adolphus Washington is moving back to the 3-technique to replace the departed Michael Bennett.

Washington played a good amount on the edge last year and his play style should fit a move closer to the center. The 3-technique is also called the B gap, between the guard and tackle, and highlights an upfield, explosive disruptor. Bennett dealt with injuries throughout his career but was successful when on the field. We expect the same for Washington.

LSU junior QB Anthony Jennings will not face charges over an alleged burglary and has been reinstated to the team.

Charges were also dropped against defensive back Dwayne Thomas and defensive lineman Maquedius Bain. "The decision is based upon the request of the victim that no charges be filed and inconsistent and contradictory statements provided," East Baton Rouge district attorney Hillar Moore said. "Although the conduct of these students in this situation is unacceptable, it is not one, based on the facts, that warrant prosecution, although their actions could have subjected them to such." The three players will be subject to in-house discipline, though Jennings is free to re-enter the starting QB competition.

Asked about who will start at QB in the opener against Virginia Tech, Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said the "first guy that jogs out at Blacksburg will be the starting quarterback."

Well, so much for that question. Here's where we stand at the moment: With Braxton Miller moving to WR/H-back/OW, J.T. Barrett will battle Cardale Jones for the right to take the first snap against the Hokies. The Columbus Dispatch reported that "[c]oaches [have been]… grading Barrett and Jones all summer regarding leadership, academics and the weight room."
