Florida head coach Will Muschamp is happy with junior QB Jeff Driskel's offseason progression.

"Again, I've been nothing but pleased to this point of how he's attacked the offseason mentally and how he's worked," Muschamp said. "It's watching film, it's understanding schematically where to take the ball, (understanding) where you're protected. The film study, the mental repetition is so vital for all players, but especially as cerebral as the (quarterback) position can be, that's vital."

The Tuscaloosa News reports that former Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze is meeting to discuss the opening for offensive coordinator at Alabama.

Freeze would replace Brian Daboll, who is leaving to become the offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills in the NFL. Freeze was essentially forced out from Ole Miss unceremoniously after the discovery that he made a call to an escort service from a university-issued phone. He has a combined record of 49-28 over his seven seasons with Ole Miss and Arkansas State. If hired, Freeze would also be the fourth offensive coordinator for the Crimson Tide in the last two years.

According to his personal Twitter account, former Oregon and Texas A&M junior WR Kirk Merritt will transfer to Arkansas State.

Merritt spent last year at East Mississippi CC, better known as the former "Last Chance U." In terms of talent, he's a big acquisition for the Red Wolves. That sentence comes with a big caveat: Merritt is mired with off-field concerns. He was dismissed last May from A&M after troubling charges surfaced of indecent exposure. The 5-foot-11, 205-pounder is the No. 34 JUCO prospect in the country, per the 247 Composite. He's a true burner.

According to multiple reports, Alabama redshirt sophomore edge rusher Mekhi Brown will transfer to Tennessee State.

A little-used reserve prior to last Monday, Brown became infamous for a forgettable third quarter stretch against Georgia in the College Football Playoff Championship Game. First, he punched Georgia's Wyatt Payne. After he returned to the sideline, Brown started jawing with an Alabama assistant coach, who he then shoved in the chest before getting restrained by a teammate. Brown re-entered the game and subsequently made a clothesline tackle. "I really felt like a jerk," Brown said after the game. "That’s not how I am. I wanted to win, that’s what it was. I did something stupid. I could have cost us the game." Per reports, Brown was actually on his way out of Tuscaloosa before last Monday. Brown had applied and been accepted to Tennessee State before the game took place. The 6-foot-5, 240-pound edge rusher was a four-star prospect coming out of high school. He's reportedly already taking classes at TSU.

NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks says Alabama freshman QB Tua Tagovailoa "possesses a lot of qualities" that will lead to Russell Wilson comparisons "in time."

The 6-foot-1, 219-pounder replaced benched starter Jalen Hurts in the second half last Monday to lead the Crimson Tide to the national title. "From his unflappable confidence, poise and composure to his pinpoint passing skills in the pocket or on the move, I feel like I saw much the same when I watched Wilson play at N.C. State and Wisconsin," Brooks wrote. Brooks included standard caveats regarding the small sample size and Tua's need to work on his craft over the next few years, but he loved the tools flashed in those fateful two quarters last week. "Tagovailoa showed outstanding arm talent (arm strength, zip, velocity and ball placement) while also displaying terrific anticipation, touch, and timing," he wrote. "Although the performance was far from perfect, he made a few 'big-boy' throws that will make any coach or evaluator take notice." We consider Tua a heavy favorite to win the starting job over Hurts this summer.

Clemson junior DT Christian Wilkins will return to school for the 2018 season.

Clemson had the best defensive line in college football last season. And with Wilkins' decision to return, every member of it is returning to campus in 2018. Wilkins joined First-team All-American DEs Clelin Ferrell and Austin Bryant in (surprisingly) opting to head back. That terrific trio is joined by manchild DT Dexter Lawrence, who could be the highest-drafted linemen of them all (Lawrence is first eligible to declare for the NFL after the 2018 season). The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Wilkins posted 55 tackles, 8.5 TFL, 4.5 sacks and four pass breakups this past season. Assuming good health and another strong season, Wilkins figures to go in Round 1 in the spring of 2019. An NFL scout told NFL.com's Chase Goodbread during the season that Wilkins could be a 10-year All-Pro. ESPN's Mel Kiper deems Wilkins a "Jonathan Allen-type lineman" who could be used as a 3-4 DE or a 4-3 DT in the NFL.

Washington redshirt junior QB K.J. Carta-Samuels transferred to UCLA.

Carta-Samuels (6'2/225) was also kicking around a move to Iowa State or Colorado State, but his visit to UCLA over the weekend sealed the deal for the Bruins. The graduate gunslinger is expected to take part in spring practice with UCLA as he looks to make hay as a potential replacement for Josh Rosen. He'll be fighting it out with Devon Modster, Matt Lynch, Austin Burton and incoming (so long as he does not flip) four-star commit Dorian Thompson-Robinson. HC Chip Kelly has already told him that, as we expected, it will be an open competition. At Washington, Carta-Samuels was almost completely boxed out of playing time due to Jake Browning's rise. In limited action with the Huskies for his career, Carta-Samuels completed 27-of-47 passes for 310 yards with a 3/1 TD/INT ratio.

Georgia junior WR Terry Godwin will return to school for the 2018 season.

It's not exactly getting star LB Roquan Smith -- who declared earlier on Monday -- back for another Playoff run, but Godwin's a consistent contributor on the other side of the ball. This past season, the 5-foot-11, 166-pound junior logged a 38-639-6 receiving line while averaging 16.8 yards per reception. Godwin has caught at least 35 passes (but never more than 2017's 38) in each of his three years with the Bulldogs.

Miami redshirt sophomore QB Evan Shirreffs will transfer.

Props to Shirreffs on the academic side, as he will be moving on having graduated in just three years. This means he will be eligible to play immediately with his program-to-be come the start of the 2018 season. He'll have two years remaining to his name, to boot. Shirreffs was unable to beat out Malik Rosier for starting honors this past offseason and finished the 2017 campaign having attempted just seven passes. The 6-foot-5, 216-pounder was a three-star recruit coming out of high school in the winter of 2015. The offshoot of all this is that the Miami quarterback competition this spring and summer will likely boil down to returning starter Malik Rosier and much-heralded dual-threat N'Kosi Perry, who is entering his second year in the program.

Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman reports that Arizona will hire Texas A&M OC Noel Mazzone to serve in the same capacity.

It looked late last week like Mazzone might be joining Texas' staff as an offensive quality control coach, but the winds shifted with Arizona hiring former Aggies HC Kevin Sumlin over the weekend. Mazzone has been working as Texas A&M offensive coordinator each of the last two seasons, making him immediately familiar with Sumlin -- their relationship actually goes back to the early 90's, when they both coached at Minnesota. Expect him to bring a similar up-tempo spread attack to Arizona as the kind he was running with Texas A&M. Just how he and Sumlin will mold the offense to fit the sensational Khalil Tate remains to be seen, but both coaches have experience working with dual-threat quarterbacks.

Michigan State sophomore WR Trishton Jackson transferred to Syracuse.

Jackson (6'1/183) announced his transfer last week, making quick work of the process by settling on Syracuse just days later. He had mouths watering after he caught eight passes for 168 yards in the Spartan spring game last offseason, but was unable to transfer that success over for the regular season. He made 11 catches for 143 yards during the 2017 season, with just three catches over the final eight games of the campaign. He'll have to sit out the 2018 season to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations, but will have two years eligibility remaining once he boots up in 2019. There is still plenty of upside for Orange HC Dino Babers to mine, here, particularly in an offensive system which caters to big-time passing numbers. Jackson ranked as Scout.com's No. 157 overall prospect in the 2016 class.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller passes along that "people at Stanford think [redshirt junior RB] Bryce Love will stay in school and not declare for the draft."

Love (5'10/184) is one of the few big draft-eligible players yet to announce his intentions. We'll find out soon enough one way or another -- today (Monday) is the deadline for underclassmen to declare. Love's return to Stanford would not only shift some draft boards, it would be an obvious boon for the Cardinal, particularly given that conference foe Washington is returning a number of draft-eligible pieces for the 2018 season. Love rushed for a Stanford-record 2,118 yards and 19 touchdowns during the 2017 campaign.
