Speaking with NFL Network's Bucky Brooks, one anonymous NFL scout compared West Virginia WR Tavon Austin to Dexter McCluster.

Austin is commonly compared to Percy Harvin, but according to Brooks the scout likes Austin's speed but his size worried him. McCluster was a second-round pick and has yet to develop into a true playmaker. Part of the reason likely relates to McCluster playing a lot of running back in college, and Austin's primary position was as a receiver.

USC four-star 2018 verbal RB commit Mychael Salahuddin reopened his recruitment.

Salahuddin (5'11/190) is not completely discounting the Trojans from his thoughts, but North Carolina, Pitt, Clemson and Maryland are also in the mix, here, with all four of the latter programs offering a more comfortable landing spot in terms of proximity for the Washington D.C. native. This weekend, he is checking out Maryland in unofficial capacity. Syracuse is another east coast program to keep an eye on. While the tough runner's decommitment comes just days before the start of the early winter signing period (Dec. 20-22), that is mere coincidence -- the all-purpose back does not plan on inking with his eventual program until the more traditional February opportunity. The 247Sports Composite ranks him as the No. 4 all-purpose back in the 2018 class.

Auburn received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 DE Kayode Oladele.

Oladele (6'5/236) will be putting pen to paper with the Tigers on Wednesday, the first day of the early winter signing period. He opted for Auburn over Ole Miss. A native of Nigeria currently plying his trade at Champagnat Catholic High School (Miami), the defensive end ranks as ESPN 300's No. 159 overall prospect in the 2018 class. He is still quite raw as a prospect, but flashes plenty of upside for down the road, particularly in terms of his strength and range. Oladele is a prime candidate to receive a redshirt during his inaugural campaign with Auburn. He'll be enrolling at the program in the summer.

Nebraska freshman WR Keyshawn Johnson Jr. will transfer.

Johnson (6'1/195) did not play for Nebraska this season, as he left the team over the offseason to deal with the repercussions of a marijuana citation arrest. Nebraska -- then under the guidance of HC Mike Riley -- kept the door open for him to potentially return in January, something which both he and his father, Keyshawn Johnson Sr., indicated on several occasions during the fall would be in the cards. Just how much of Johnson's about-face, here, is related to the hire of UCF's Scott Frost to replace Riley is not yet known. Johnson ranked as the No. 43 wideout in the 2017 class by Rivals metrics.

Middle Tennessee redshirt junior QB Brent Stockstill completed 19-of-35 passes for 232 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions in a 35-30 victory over Arkansas State on Saturday in the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl.

It wasn't always pretty for Stockstill, but he did enough for the Blue Raiders to win on Saturday night. The turnovers were particularly ugly, as they kept the Red Wolves in the game. He also had a few gorgeous passes, including a back-shoulder throw on third down late in the game that allowed MTSU to use much of the clock. Stockstill missed much of the year with injuries, and even when healthy, it was an inconsistent season. He's still one of the more talented quarterbacks coming back in Conference-USA, and if healthy, he should lead the Blue Raiders to another bowl game next season.

Minnesota redshirt sophomore QB Demry Croft is transferring to Tennessee State.

Croft made the announcement on Twitter. The redshirt sophomore quarterback started the last six games of the season for the Gophers, and completed just 42 percent of his passes while throwing four touchdowns and six interceptions. Because he's transferring to an FCS team, he'll be eligible to play immediately.

Boise State senior WR Cedrick Wilson caught 10 passes for 222 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 38-28 win over Oregon in the Las Vegas Bowl.

Just a masterful performance by Wilson, who repeatedly shredded the Ducks deep while showing an almost preternatural connection with QB Brett Rypien. The showing was all the more impressive for the fact that Wilson was hobbled at several points in the contest by an apparent leg injury. It didn't slow him one bit. The 6-foot-3, 183-pounder's 1,512 receiving yards for the season set a new single-season program record, toppling the mark set by Thomas Sperbeck during the 2015 campaign. Wilson is one of the more intriguing under-the-radar receiving prospects in the draft pool. Not only does he pique interest as a potential fifth wideout, he also should receive some looks as a return man. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes a strong evaluating process -- particularly in terms of his 40-yard dash time -- could help to push him into the middle rounds come the spring.

Troy junior WR Damion Willis had 11 receptions for 135 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 50-30 victory over North Texas in the New Orleans Bowl.

Willis (6'4/194), a JUCO transfer, patiently bided his time as a rotational receiver earlier this fall. His time to step into the spotlight happened to come in the bowl game on Saturday, with Troy's receiving corps decimated by injuries (Deondre Douglas, Emanuel Thompson and Tray Eafford were all injured). Willis looked like he should have become a featured receiver far earlier, making several slick catches that were contested. Willis should enter 2018 as an undisputed starter. He posted a 42-620-3 line in 2017, two two-quarters of those scores coming today.

Troy redshirt senior QB Brandon Silvers completed 24-of-31 passes for 306 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 50-30 victory over North Texas in the New Orleans Bowl.

He also had a rushing touchdown. In our bowl preview series, we mentioned that Silvers could have a monster day to cap off what had been a disappointing sophomore campaign because North Texas' pass defense is atrocious. Silvers -- who entered with an underwhelming 13/6 TD/INT rate and less than 3,000 yards passing despite big preseason expectations -- looked like an NFL prospect once more on Saturday, calmly slicing up North Texas on all three levels. The 6-foot-2, 208-pounder will now embark upon a pre-draft process voyage in which he'll have much to prove. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline currently grades him as a UDFA, but that could change. "Silvers is well liked in some scouting circles," Pauline wrote earlier this week. "He’s a high-percentage passer who makes proper choices in the pocket and minimizes mental errors. A strong postseason could push him into the late rounds."

Troy redshirt senior RB Josh Anderson rushed for 113 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries in Saturday's 50-30 victory over North Texas in the New Orleans Bowl.

With starting RB Jordan Chunn unable to go, Anderson flashed in his final collegiate game. The 5-foot-11, 251-pounder played fullback for a large part of his Trojans' career. He's not really an NFL prospect, but if Anderson were to audition for professional work, he'd have to make it as a FB.

North Carolina A&T defeated Grambling State 21-14 in the Celebration Bowl on Saturday.

Thus caps a perfect 12-0 season for the Aggies. North Carolina A&T only has one legitimate NFL prospect, but he's highly intriguing. Senior T Brandon Parker, who's headed to the Senior Bowl next, "has all the makings of a next-level starter," per Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline. Parker (6'7/309) was utterly dominant at the FCS level. "Parker has outstanding size, growth potential and upside," Pauline wrote. "He’s athletic, can slide his feet and really looks good in pass protection. Parker needs only to improve his run-blocking strength."

WNDU-TV's Alex Wilcox reports that Notre Dame sophomore WR Chase Claypool will undergo shoulder surgery.

Per Wilcox, Claypool (6'5/213) tore multiple ligaments in his shoulder during practice last week. His surgery is set for Tuesday. This unfortunate setback will cost the sophomore wideout a chance to play in the Citrus Bowl against LSU on New Year's Day. Claypool put in a 29-402-2 receiving line across 11 games during the regular season. Chris Finke and Cameron Smith could potentially see increased snaps against the Tigers with their comrade down for the count.
