Texas LB Jordan Hicks was awarded an extra season of eligibility due to an injury waiver.

Hicks applied for a medical redshirt following a shortened 2012 season. He will have two years of eligibility remaining. The Longhorn linebacker should prove to be one of Texas' top talents at the second level, as long as he can stay healthy.

The Heisman Trophy has named five finalists for the award -- Louisville QB Lamar Jackson, Clemson QB Deshaun Watson, Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield, Michigan LB Jabrill Peppers and Oklahoma WR Dede Westbrook.

A nice variety for this year's ceremonies in New York, set for Saturday night. A quick statistical rundown on all parties: Jackson stands as the front-runner after wrapping his season having accounted for 51 total touchdowns (30 passing, 21 rushing) while passing for 3,390 yards and rushing for 1,538 over 12 games. Mayfield has thrown for 3,369 yards with a 38/3 TD/INT ratio, hooking up repeatedly with Heisman friend Westbrook (74-1465-16). The last offensive finalist for the award would be Watson, who has accounted for 43 total touchdowns (37 passing, six rushing). And then there is Peppers, who did almost everything for Michigan this season, finishing out with 72 tackles (16.0 for loss), four sacks, an interception, a forced fumble, 167 rushing yards (plus three rushing scores) and 310 punt-return yards (including a touchdown). All five gentleman have posted immaculate seasons, but the award should be considered Jackson's to lose at this juncture.

A pair of NFL scouting evaluators told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport that they see LSU junior RB Leonard Fournette as a better pro prospect than Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley.

Gurley was selected 10th in the 2015 NFL Draft by the Rams, who have subsequently locked him in a dungeon of sad three-yard gains. Fournette could well follow in the footsteps of Gurley and Zeke Elliott, both of whom landed as top-10 picks in the 2015 and 2016 drafts, respectively. Fournette failed to top 1,000 yards rushing this season, though that is only due to a nagging ankle injury which forced him to miss multiple contests. Expect plenty of comps to all-universe backs such as Bo Jackson and Adrian Peterson over the coming months.

Ole Miss redshirt junior WR Damore'ea Stringfellow has declared for the 2017 NFL Draft.

"I cannot begin to express to Rebel Nation what an honor and privilege these last three years have been putting on the Ole Miss jersey each Saturday," Stringfellow said. In 12 games this season, the 6-foot-3, 229-pounder recorded a 46-716-6 receiving line. He wraps his Rebs career having caught 102 passes for 1,478 yards and 12 scores. In October, an anonymous NFL evaluator noted that Stringfellow possesses "deceptive speed" and a natural physicality.

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Baker Mayfield was named the winner of the Burlsworth Award.

The Burlsworth is awarded to those who began their collegiate careers as walk-ons. Mayfield won the honor over Washington State QB Luke Falk and Northwestern WR Austin Carr. This marks the second year in a row that Mayfield has taken home the award. He finished his 2016 regular season having thrown for 3,369 yards (71.2% completions) with a 38/8 TD/INT ratio. Mayfield will be returning for his redshirt senior campaign in 2017, so a third consecutive Burlsworth is not out of the question when all is said and done.

Georgia Southern head coach Tyson Summers announced that he won't retain co-offensive coordinators David Dean and Rance Gillespie.

"Decisions like these are never easy," Summers said. "I have the utmost respect for both David and Rance as people and football coaches, but we did not have the production nor the scoring numbers we had hoped for. We need to get back to our roots of having one of the most explosive rushing attacks in the country. That begins with me and the hiring of a coordinator who will fit that culture." We assume he's talking about identifying a candidate steeped in the type of triple-option offense that Georgia Southern is known for.

LSU junior RB Leonard Fournette will enter the 2017 NFL draft.

Even so, he intends to play in the Citrus Bowl on Dec. 31. The 6-foot-1, 230-pound Fournette checks in as Todd McShay's No. 1 overall prospect and Mel Kiper's No. 2. Fournette is a classic north-south runner, a big, thundering back with rare acceleration and explosion. He's been compared to Bo Jackson and Adrian Peterson. If there's a minor squabble, it might be with durability. Fournette has received 657 touches over three years on campus and missed four games this year with an ankle injury. To be fair, Fournette rushed for 1,953 yards and 22 touchdowns on 300 attempts without missing a contest as a sophomore last year.

Penn State redshirt senior LB Nyeem Wartman-White will enter the 2017 NFL Draft rather than take advantage of one more year of eligibility.

Wartman-White dealt with plenty of injuries, including a 2015 ACL issue in his left knee that caused him to miss the entire season. He suffered the same injury in his right knee this year. Rather than pursue a medical redshirt, the linebacker is off to the NFL. He has been a starter when healthy.

Michigan junior C Mason Cole is leaning towards returning to school for his final season of eligibility.

"I'll take a look at everything. But, as it stands now, I'm definitely leaning (toward) coming back," Cole told reporters. He did request an evaluation from the NFL, but Cole says it was to highlight areas he needs to improve on. Teammate Maurice Hurst also said he will likely return to school. Cole has started every game in his career and moved from tackle to center this year.
