Ohio State T Reid Fragel has six team visits scheduled, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

Those six teams are: the Lions, Bears, Dolphins, Giants, Patriots, and Bengals. Pauline calls Fragel "possibly (the) most underrated RT moving toward (the) draft." Our own Josh Norris ranked Fragel as the No. 65 overall player last month. As long as the Buckeye stays more patient in his posture, he has the mean streak to be a starting caliber tackle.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer anticipates that redshirt freshman RB Mike Weber will be the starting tailback in 2016.

At B1G media days, Meyer said that he "love[s] where [Weber's] at physically." He just needs to stay healthy over the next month-plus. Last season, Weber suffered a torn meniscus several weeks before the start of the season. That injury and subsequent surgery led the 5-foot-10, 215-pounder to take a freshman redshirt. With Bri'onte Dunn's dismissal earlier this month, Weber has a relatively clear road to carries in 2016 if he can maintain his health. Curtis Samuel and Antonio Williams also figure to see opportunities out of the backfield.

Miami received a verbal commitment from four-star 2017 DE D.J. Johnson.

ESPN's Craig Haubert called Johnson "an excellent pick-up for Miami out of California" and noted that the 6-foot-5, 225-pounder is a fiend in the pass-rush. The analyst wrote that "Johnson is a lengthy edge defender [who] has the ability to explode off the ball and cover a lot of ground once in motion." He ranks as ESPN 300's No. 30 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle. With his commitment in the bag, the Hurricanes now hold six ESPN 300 commitments. A top-10 recruiting class in HC Mark Richt's first year with the program is very much in play as things currently stand.

Pittsburgh HC Pat Narduzzi said that redshirt junior RB James Conner (knee/lymphoma) will be a full participant in August camp.

"We just have to monitor him a little bit, make sure we don't wear him out," Narduzzi said. "We have to be smart. You let him go out there for a two-a-day, but you don't have him out there every snap." Pitt will be monitoring him in a unique way, too -- he will wear a GPS device designed to track his movements and pace in practice, in order to help give Narduzzi and friends an idea of how he is progressing and when he might need a breather. Conner is on the mend from a traumatic 2015 season in which he tore his MCL in September and was subsequently diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer expects freshman OL Michael Jordan to start this season.

The Buckeyes lost two starting tackles to the NFL in Taylor Decker, who was good, and Chase Farris, who was not. Jordan was considered a four-star recruit and stands 6-foot-6 and 309-pounds. Ohio State's offense will continue to evolve, with J.T. Barrett clearly at the helm and the losses of workhorse Ezekiel Elliott, big receiver Michael Thomas and manufactured touch player Braxton Miller. The most impactful departure over the last few years might be former OC Tom Herman.

Baylor sophomore QB Jarrett Stidham received his release from scholarship.

Stidham can transfer to any school outside of the Big 12. It is worth noting David Ubben of Sports on Earth suggested Stidham could enroll at McLennan Community College in Waco, where he would be eligible to play immediately. Stidham would also be eligible if he elected to drop down to the FCS level, with the likely goal of working back up to an FBS program. As a true freshman, Stidham passed for 1,265 yards and a 12/2 TD/INT ratio.

Baylor redshirt senior RB Shock Linwood needs two rushing touchdowns to be the school's all-time leader in that category.

Baylor's football history is not extensive, but it is still surprising that the school's all-time rushing touchdown leader is Alfred Anderson with 35, ending his career back in 1983. Linwood is just one away after only three seasons, and that record could be broken in week one against Northwestern State. Robert Griffin III is third on the list, with 33. Baylor has been very effective in recent years by continuing to spread defenses out with four or five receiver sets, and allowing running backs to eat in 5 versus 5 matchups in the box.

Florida junior WR Treon Harris will transfer.

Florida took to Twitter to confirm widespread reports of Harris' looming transfer. His time in the program was marred by mediocre play and off-field turbulence. On the field, the 5-foot-11, 190-pounder struggled to spark any sort of a potent passing attack (50.3% career completions). And off the field, he was hit with an ongoing indefinite suspension this winter for reasons unknown. Harris transitioned over to wideout in the offseason while under that mysterious suspension. It is unknown at this juncture which programs he might be considering for a transfer. With QB Will Grier electing to join West Virginia's program in the spring, HC Jim McElwain is essentially starting with a fresh slate at the position this coming season, with redshirt junior QB Luke Del Rio probably holding the inside track to win the starting gig.

Minnesota redshirt senior QB Mitch Leidner said that his surgically-repaired foot has "never felt better."

In the winter, Leidner underwent surgery to repair four torn ligaments in his left foot. While he was limited in spring practice, all signs have been pointing toward a healthy summer. Looks like it played out to script. At B1G media days, the 6-foot-4, 237-pounder said that his foot has been feeling 100% healthy for approximately a month. Last season, Leidner threw for 2,701 yards (59.5% completions) with a 14/11 TD/INT ratio.

LSU received a verbal commitment from four-star 2017 CB Kary Vincent.

"It's family over there. I feel at home with the guys," Vincent said. "I think Coach Miles will be there a long time, despite what people say. I know LSU is a place that can develop me to be the best player on and off the field." Ohio State, Texas, Florida State and Texas A&M were also in the running for the 5-foot-11, 170-pounder's commitment. His father actually attended A&M, but that familial tie was not enough for the Aggies to rise to the top of the metaphorical mountain. LSU now holds commitments from three of ESPN 300's top 25 prospects. He sits at No. 22, with the outlet noting that Vincent is an "[e]xplosive, fast closing corner who shows playmaking qualities on the perimeter."

UNC four-star 2017 verbal RB commit Adarius Lemons flipped his commitment to Florida.

"Things change and I feel bad personally," Lemons said after visiting Florida on Friday, "but at the end of the day I am trying to find what is best for me and my family." One point on the Gators' side is that Lemons' family won't have to make extensive travel plans to watch the 6-foot, 195-pounder play -- something that wouldn't have been the case with the Tar Heels. Hailing from Clearwater, Florida, Lemons ranks as Rivals' No. 136 overall prospect (No. 9 running back) for the 2017 cycle.

ESPN's Brett McMurphy reports that Baylor interim HC Jim Grobe will make $1.25 million for the 2016 season.

Grobe's salary stands as the third-lowest in the Big 12, with Iowa State's Matt Campbell and Kansas' David Beaty the only coaches within the conference to make less coin. And that $1.25 million, of course, is considerably less than Art Briles was making at the time of his termination at the end of May. Briles had somewhere in the neighborhood of eight years, $40 million remaining on his 10-year contract at the time of his departure.
