ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Florida junior CB Loucheiz Purifoy as the No. 10 overall prospect heading into the 2013 season.

"An exceptional athlete, Purifoy also provides value as a returner," Kiper writes. "He has the ball skills of a wide receiver and could also see time there in 2013. Can get beat because he's still finding his way in terms of technique, but more seasoning could make him a star." Despite losing multiple defensive prospects to the 2013 NFL Draft, the Gators' defense will remain very talented.

Auburn named redshirt sophomore QB Sean White the starting quarterback.

This will surprise some folks, as JUCO transfer QB John Franklin III arrived with considerable Nick Marshall-comped hype. Franklin, however, was unable to win the starting job at his JUCO last year and remains extremely raw. White, on the other hand, ended last year as the starter. In all, the 6-foot, 200-pounder completed 83-of-143 passes for 1,1167 yards and a 1/4 TD/INT rate in what was a trying year for all parties. AL.com noted that consistency in practices is what likely gave White the ultimate nod over Franklin and senior Jeremy Johnson. Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn and White were done no favors by the schedule. Next Saturday, the Tigers open against Clemson.

TCU named redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill the starter.

The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder staved off spirited challenger sophomore Foster Sawyer for the right to become Travone Boykin's heir. Last seen getting benched and then run out of Texas A&M in 2014, Hill nonetheless posted incredible numbers while on the field. Before getting yanked that fall, he had thrown for 2,649 yards and 23 touchdowns on 66.7 percent passing. The man known as Kenny Trill ran the Horned Frogs’ scout team last year, so you can bet he's well-versed in TCU's schema. A four-star recruit and the son of former Texas Rangers' pitcher Ken Hill, Kenny Hill was the 2012 Texas Gatorade Player of the Year and 5A Offensive Player of the Year.

Yahoo Sports' Pat Forde reports that in the investigation of Ole Miss regarding potential violations, the NCAA has spoken to at least two recruits from other SEC schools.

The NCAA is interested in how, exactly, Ole Miss is going about their recruiting. Per Forde, the governing body has spoken with former Reb targets at both Auburn and Mississippi State. Ole Miss declined comment on the new report, but did say that they were cooperating with the inquiry. They were already facing allegations of 28 violations across three sports -- 13 in football. Much of the earlier portion of the investigation (at least in terms of Freeze's regime) focused on former T Laremy Tunsil, but the NCAA is broadening their net just a little.

Mississippi State senior CB Tolando Cleveland will miss the 2016 season with a torn ACL.

Unfortunately for the Bulldogs faithful, Cleveland's injury wasn't the only one to befell the Mississippi State secondary. In addition, senior CB Cedric Jiles recently suffered a broken arm and will not play until October, at the earliest. Both young gentleman were expected starters for the coming season, leaving HC Dan Mullen to scramble. Lashard Durr and Jamoral Graham are two replacement options and Mullen indicated that S Jamal Peters could play corner in a pinch, too.

BYU sophomore QB Tanner Mangum told the Salt Lake Tribune's Jay Drew he has no intention of transferring.

Drew told Mangum that there were rumors on the internet that he might be eyeing a transfer after Taysom Hill was named the starting quarterback earlier this week. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder laughed it off, telling Drew, "I wouldn't even think about transferring. I love it here. I'm in a good spot, a good place." BYU has to be thrilled that Mangum isn't considering a transfer -- he proved last year that he could compete at a high level and Hill's health should no longer be considered a guarantee for the coming season given his extensive injury history. In 2015, Mangum threw for 3,377 yards with a 23/10 TD/INT ratio. That's one heck of a safety net should Hill go down. In other Mangum news, he indicated that he does not want to take a redshirt for 2016.

Indefinitely suspended Notre Dame senior CB Devin Butler's girlfriend, Haleigh Bailey, offered a vastly different story of Butler's weekend arrest than that offered by the police.

The probable cause affidavit painted the picture of an aggressive Butler pushing and tackling an officer outside of the Linebacker Lounge over the weekend, to the point where he needed to be tazed. Bailey offered a different version of events. "He was abused, and wrongly arrested. He never tackled an officer and he never intentionally hurt anyone," she said. "He had no reason to be tazed because he was never resisting arrest, and he was already on the ground complying when they tazed him." Butler has pleaded not guilty to a pair of Level 6 felony charges -- resisting law enforcement and battery of a police officer. He is due in court for an initial hearing on September 1.

UNC HC Larry Fedora offered a resolute response to critics of his decision to bring in former Illinois HC Tim Beckman as a volunteer.

"Let me make something clear so everybody understands: I'm the one that sets the expectations on our culture and how our student-athletes are treated. I'm at the top, I set it for everybody," Fedora said. Beckman was fired from Illinois one week before the start of the 2015 and has previously been accused of influencing medical decisions regarding injured players. Volunteering with the Tar Heels, Beckman will not be allowed to coach players in a traditional sense, but will be involved with film study and scouting, particularly in regards to the defensive line.

Greg Gabriel spoke with one "NFL personnel man" who said UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen "better drop entitlement attitude if he wants to be as good as he thinks he is."

We hear NFL personnel people complain about a quarterback's attitude every single year. Why? Because there are hundreds of "NFL personnel" people, and each has an opinion. It is worth understanding that one opinion does not mean the entire NFL thinks that way. Plus, Rosen does not turn 20 years old until February. Rosen and Deshaun Watson are clearly the two most talented quarterbacks in college football at this time, with Watson eligible for the 2017 NFL Draft and Rosen eligible in 2018.

Penn State redshirt sophomore Trace McSorley has been named the school's starting QB.

"I know lot of people thought that decision was made in spring ball. It wasn't," head coach James Franklin said. McSorley stepped in for an injured Christian Hackenberg last season, and arguably outplayed the future second round pick (lol). In that bowl game against Georgia, McSorley completed 14 of 27 attempts for 142 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for another 31 yards. Penn State's offense was a train wreck the last two seasons, outside of Saquon Barkley. Penn State faithful are hoping coaching changes will turn that around.

Georgia head coach Kirby Smart confirmed that junior RB Nick Chubb will play in the season opener against UNC.

He won't be the only running back to see touches, however. "I think everybody’s in line to get carries. Nick’s in line, Elijah’s (Holyfield) in line, Brian’s (Herrien) in line, Brendan Douglas is in line, Tae Crowder’s in line," Smart told the media. Georgia relied on their ball carriers every single season under Mark Richt, and that likely won;t be any different with Smart running the team. Chubb is the huge news here, coming off a major knee injury last season. Before that, he looked like one of the nation's most talented runners. Sony Michel still appears to be sidelined.

During a radio interview, LSU head coach Les Miles said "I'm not ready to say we're giving Leonard (Fournette) the ball less" this season.

The question was in regards to Fournette's carry total versus talented backup Derrius Guice, who only received 51 carries versus Fournette's 300. Guice would start for almost every other school in the nation, but Miles wants to ride Fournette. While 300 carries is a large number, the figure could have been much larger, as Fournette sat on the bench in some second halves due to LSU leading by a wide margin on the scoreboard. By comparison, Derrick Henry carried the ball 395 times for Alabama last season.
