True freshman Jared Goff has been named Cal's starting QB.

Redshirt freshman Zach Line had appeared to be the favorite, but Goff must have really impressed coaches this offseason. Junior Austin Hinder was also considered to be in the competition. "We feel that right now Jared Goff gives us the best chance to be successful as a team, but we are very fortunate to have three outstanding quarterbacks we feel we can be successful with," head coach Sonny Dykes said. The Golden Bears open their season against Northwestern and play Ohio State and Oregon in the first five weeks.

Wyoming HC Craig Bohl indicated that sophomore RB Trey Woods (shoulder) might be able to return at some point this year.

"Initially, we thought that he for sure would be out for the year," Bohl said, adding that the team is taking a wait-and-see approach with the sophomore back, who earlier underwent surgery to repair a shoulder issue which had kept him sidelined for the majority of spring practice. The 6-foot-4, 185-pounder rushed for 493 yards (3.5 YPC) and two touchdowns last season. Bohl specifically made reference to the NCAA's new regulations regarding redshirts -- players will be allowed to take the field in four games, now, before the redshirt is burned -- and wondered aloud whether this might come into play for Woods. All of this said, Woods is still expected to miss the start of the upcoming season, which will allow opportunity for Kellen Overstreet and Nico Evans to see heavier workloads until he's healthy enough to make his return.

FAU signed HC Lane Kiffin to a 10-year contract.

Reports broke in December that FAU and Kiffin were working to put together a longer contract. It's finally come to pass, with school president Dr. John Kelly signing off on the deal this week. This contract will keep Kiffin in Boca Raton through the 2027 season should he stay on for the duration. On the monetary front, no raise is attached to the $950,000 Kiffin was previously making on an annual basis, though he will draw a $50,000 retention bonus for each year he remains with the program and has a number of incentives that could offer considerable boost to that salary. In his inaugural season at FAU a year ago, Kiffin helped guide the Owls to a 9-3 record in the regular season, after which they defeated North Texas in the Conference USA title game and dispatched Akron in the Boca Raton Bowl. Just how long FAU can actually keep Kiffin in the fold until his eyes begin to wander toward other jobs remains to be seen, but this marriage with FAU has started off with plenty of sparks.

The San Antonio franchise in the Alliance of American Football hired Oregon State TE coach Mike Riley to serve as head coach.

Reports of this unorthodox move to semi-pro football initially surfaced on Wednesday, with Riley's hiring officially announced on Thursday. His exit brings to a close his third -- and shortest -- stint in Corvallis. He previously served nonconsecutive stints as head coach (1997-98, 2003-14) and, following his firing at Nebraska this past winter, joined OSU as tight ends coach under new Beavers HC Jonathan Smith in December. The AAF will begin its inaugural season next February.

Cal redshirt sophomore WR Demetris Robertson will transfer.

This should be considered a major, major loss for what is a rebuilding Golden Bears squad. Robertson (6'1/180) was a five-star recruit in the 2016 class, with Rivals ranking him as the No. 8 overall prospect for the cycle. He bolted out for a 50-767-7 receiving line as a true freshman and looked ready to take a supernova leap onto the national stage heading into his sophomore year. Alas, the wideout saw his 2017 season cut short by a lower body injury last September. He took a medical redshirt for the campaign, but had made his way back to full health this offseason -- Robertson ran a 4.35-second 40-yard dash in the spring -- and looked to be back on track for a strong upcoming season heading into the summer. In his Twitter post announcing his transfer, he cited "personal matters." Just where the stud receiver might be eyeing for his move is not yet known, but he'll have to sit out the upcoming season to satisfy NCAA regulations once he settles on his new home.

Western Michigan redshirt sophomore RB Matt Falcon (knee) has been medically disqualified for the 2018 season.

Falcon (6'1/235) has seen a once-promising career fall away from him due to a variety of knee injuries. The former four-star recruit twice sustained ACL tears before he had even embarked on his senior year of high school ball. He had been committed to Michigan, but those injuries had the Wolverines backing off him to offer only a medical scholarship. Falcon subsequently signed on with Western Michigan. After taking a redshirt in 2016, he was again waylaid by a knee injury during August camp a year ago, ultimately managing to appear in just one game during the most recent campaign. With Falcon officially disqualified from playing, expect the Broncos to lean on Jamauri Bogan and LeVante Bellamy for the coming season.

Florida State received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 DE Derick Hunter.

Hunter (6'4/276) committed to FSU while on a visit to Tallahassee on Wednesday. The other main players for the former Miami pledge were Florida, Georgia and Penn State. On the ESPN 300, the Fort Myers, Florida, native slides into proceedings at No. 252 overall in the 2019 class. He's a physical prospect with a quick first step, though his lateral movement and agility could be improved upon as he heads into his senior season of high school ball.

LSU received a verbal commitment from five-star 2019 CB Derek Stingley Jr..

Stingley (6'1/185) opted for LSU over fellow finalists Florida and Texas. This pledge was more or less expected for the Tigers, who were considered a heavy favorite to re-land his pledge -- this is actually his second time committing to the program -- heading into Wednesday's announcement. It's a huge get for HC Ed Orgeron and staff, as Rivals ranks Stingley as the No. 1 overall prospect in the 2019 class. He's an athletic standout who has logged a 42-inch vertical jump and a sub-4.40-second run through the 40-yard dash. He also possesses palatable arm length and fluid hip movement. With Stingley's addition to the Tigers fold, LSU now holds Rivals' No. 10 recruiting class for the 2019 cycle.

Maryland hired a sports medicine consulting group led by Dr. Rod Walters to investigate the death of sophomore T Jordan McNair.

McNair collapsed during a late May workout and was subsequently hospitalized for two weeks before passing away on June 13. Investigating the circumstances surrounding this tragedy will be Dr. Walters, a former collegiate athletic trainer who is a member of both the National Athletic Trainers Association and the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine. This external investigation and review could potentially take up to 90 days to complete.

Virginia Tech CB Adonis Alexander ran the 40-yard dash in 4.60 seconds during his pro day-style workout on Wednesday.

Alexander is tuning up for the supplemental draft. He measured in at 6-foot-2, 195 pounds on Wednesday. In addition to his run through the 40-yard dash -- not particularly impressive, there -- he posted a 35.5-inch vertical jump, a 124-inch broad jump and nine reps on the bench press. The NFL Network's Mike Garafolo passes along that the corner was expected to meet with seven teams or thereabouts around his workout and additionally has one team visit on the docket. Alexander could potentially land as a mid-round selection when the supplemental draft starts up on July 11. It's not unusual for such drafts to go by without a single player selected, but we suspect that both Western Michigan CB Sam Beal and Alexander will make the cut next month. Mississippi State S Brandon Bryant has also thrown his hat into the supplemental ring, but should be considered more of a long shot.

Notre Dame senior LB Te'Von Coney was sentenced to a year of probation for his 2016 arrest on a marijuana possession charge.

Coney (6'1/240) was arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession along with three other former Notre Dame players in August of 2016 after the quartet was pulled over during a traffic stop. While none of the other players (Kevin Stepherson, Max Redfield, Ashton Young) in question remain on the team, Coney's made it through the fire and looks like he'll be ready to rock and/or roll this coming season now that his legal troubles have been concluded. He was a standout performer for the Irish last year, recording 116 tackles (13.0 for loss). Coney kicked around a potential NFL Draft declaration this past winter before ultimately deciding to give it one more go in South Bend.

Oklahoma extended HC Lincoln Riley's contract through January 31, 2023.

Just a little one-year extension on Riley's contract, here. No need for anything longer at this juncture given that he's only one year into his career as head coach in Norman. More substantively, it looks like Riley will also be netting a raise of more than $1.7 million. He made $3.1 million (discounting bonuses and incentives) last season and is now set to make $4.8 million in 2018, with $100,000 raises set to kick in each year through to the end of the deal. In his first season at the OU helm taking over for Bob Stoops, Riley's Sooners made a run to the Playoff before falling short against Georgia in a classic Rose Bowl semifinal showdown.
