Vanderbilt will assist their football student athletes in finding agents through a third party consulting group.

Agents have told Sports and Entertainment Attorney Daren Heitner that the school has hired a consulting company to interview agent candidates for their players. It is an interesting idea, but the process could grow beyond Vanderbilt's program. Senior receiver Jordan Matthews appears to be the Commodores' top prospect.

Four-star 2017 WR Mike Harley committed to West Virginia.

Assuming HC Dana Holgorsen can keep Harley in the fold through National Signing Day, this could be a really nice under-the-radar summer commitment for the Mountaineers. The 5-foot-10, 153-pound wideout ranks as Rivals' No. 222 prospect for the 2017 cycle, while ESPN 300 notes that he "[s]hows very good football instincts and has a very nice feel for the position." Rivals recruiting director Mike Farrell singled him out as having the best footwork of any player at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge earlier this month. As for his future role with West Virginia, Harley said, "They are going to use me in the slot for some of the time, but they will put be outside for deep balls, too. They’re going to move me around depending on the plays and the situation."

Baylor graduate WR Chris Johnson will transfer to Houston.

Hat-tip to Rivals and SicEmSports for the report. Unlike recent Baylor departures such as 2016 signees Devin Duvernay and J.P. Urquidez, Johnson's decision to leave the program comes out of the blue. There had been no previous indication that the 6-foot-5, 235-pounder was looking for a change of scenery. He is not the first Bear to transfer to Houston since Art Briles was terminated at the end of May. Freshman wideout Tren'Davian Dickson announced his own Houston transfer just a week ago. Unlike Dickson, Johnson will not have to sit out the 2016 season, as he is set to graduate from Baylor this summer. He has two years of eligibility remaining. While he was a highly-rated dual-threat quarterback out of high school, he switched over to receiver after joining the Bears and is expected to stick there with the Cougars.

Former Baylor three-star 2016 WR Donovan Duvernay signed with Texas.

Duvernay becomes the second of five players released from their Baylor NLI's to join Texas -- four-star OL J.P. Urquidez did likewise just a matter of hours ago. Donovan is the brother of WR Devin Duvernay, who himself fled Baylor for Texas last week, though he did not need an NLI release due to a paperwork mistake by the Bears. If HC Charlie Strong can also reel in four-star OL Patrick Hudson -- a Texas native -- from Baylor, that would make for one heck of a summer given that not only did these players initially sign with another school, they signed with a rival program within the Big 12. And now, they are all Longhorns.

Former Baylor four-star 2016 RB Kameron Martin is deciding between TCU and Auburn after being released from his National Letter of Intent.

Martin was released from his NLI on Friday, visited Auburn on Saturday and is visiting TCU on Sunday. Said the 5-foot-10, 175-pounder, "I'll make a decision after my TCU official in the next few days. Probably Tuesday I'll have somewhere I'll say I'll go." The Horned Frogs have a tall task before them, as Martin came away from his Auburn visit gushing. He called it "amazing" and said, "My thing is, I just want to go somewhere where I can compete at the highest level. The SEC is the highest level."

Former Baylor four-star 2016 T J.P. Urquidez signed with Texas.

It begins. Urquidez was one of five members of Baylor's 2016 class to receive releases from their letters of intent on Friday. The 6-foot-6, 300-pounder ranked as ESPN 300's No. 164 prospect for 2016. Now heading to Texas, he will join another former Bear in four-star WR Devin Duvernay. Duvernay did not technically receive a release from his own NLI, but that is only because Baylor did not file it in time to begin with. There have been rumbles that stud tackle Patrick Hudson will also be heading over to the Longhorns in this NLI shuffle. Texas might be the only winner to come out of the whole mess at Baylor.

Four-star 2017 WR Mannie Netherly committed to LSU.

Per Scout.com's Greg Powers, Netherly possesses "the great ability to be able to stretch the field vertically, but can also be dangerous underneath." The 6-foot-2, 183-pounder opted to side with the Tiger cause over competing offers from the likes of Texas A&M, Alabama, Auburn and Florida. Rivals' No. 223 prospect for the 2017 cycle stands as LSU's second receiving commitment in this class, joining fellow four-star wideout Stephen Guidry.

Four-star 2017 DE Zachary Carter committed to Florida.

Carter kicked around the idea of waiting until after his senior season at Hillsborough High to announce the commitment, but he has changed course over the last few weeks and voila, a commitment to the Gators. His choice came down to Florida and Clemson, with HC Jim McElwain winning the day. As for his role down in Gainesville, Carter explained, "They told me that I’m a rush end, but I’ll play strongside also. So that’s sorta what they’re talking about now anyway." Rivals checks him into their master list of 2017 recruits at No. 62 overall.

Penn State awarded new two-year contracts to the assistant coaching staff.

"All of the assistants, their first contracts just ran out. And they all just signed multiple-year, guaranteed contracts," said HC James Franklin. "All the strength coaches did. All the administrators. Everybody." The hope is that these contracts help to foster something vaguely resembling continuity. Since the close of the season, the team has lost OC John Donovan (fired), DC Bob Shoop (left for Tennessee) and OL coach Herb Hand (left for Auburn). The Nittany Lions have finished 7-6 in each of Franklin's two years as head coach.

Five-star 2017 OL Wyatt Davis committed to Ohio State.

This one is somewhat unexpected, both in timing and location. Davis indicated earlier in June that he was simply hoping to lock down five finalists for his commitment by the end of the month. The 6-foot-5, 295-pounder was wooed over to Urban Meyer's side by a visit to Columbus several weeks ago. Ohio State wasn't considered a front-runner prior to that trip. This Buckeye recruiting class is shaping up beautifully. Davis was their 14th commitment for the cycle and, already, their third five-star commitment by Rivals standards. Davis ranks as the outlet's No. 1 guard and No. 18 overall prospect.

Baylor and HC Art Briles have officially agreed to a termination of his contract.

The coach and university reached an undisclosed settlement last week. "Both parties acknowledge that there were serious shortcomings in the response to reports of sexual violence by some student-athletes," Baylor said in a statement, "including deficiencies in University processes and the delegation of disciplinary responsibilities with the football program." The board of regents moved to have Briles terminated at the end of May in response to a report from law firm Pepper Hamilton regarding the toxic, unsafe environment on campus. Former Wake Forest HC Jim Grobe was subsequently hired to serve in an interim capacity for the coming season. Briles has not spoken out about his future plans as of yet.

North Carolina AD Bubba Cunningham said that the university would respond to the latest NCAA Notice of Allegations before the required deadline.

UNC was given 90 days to respond to the notice. They have one month remaining on that, but should be able to meet the deadline without issue. Per the Associated Press, all of this is "an offshoot of a 2010 NCAA probe into the football program, center[ing] on independent study-style courses offering GPA-boosting grades in the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies department." The NCAA initially sent a NOA to North Carolina during May of 2015, one which detailed five potentially major violations. In August, UNC reported additional information to the NCAA, which required a revised notice. That was not issued until April of this year. Cunningham indicated that it is too early in the process to know whether self-imposed sanctions would be levied in the future.
