Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio announced that senior Andrew Maxwell will remain the team's starting quarterback.

"We always felt Andrew was going to be our guy," Dantonio said, "but we wanted to provide that competitive level." Dantonio said he'll additionally find playing time for sophomore Connor Cook in Friday's opener against Western Michigan. Tyler O'Connor is also "in the mix," according to Dantonio. True freshman Damion Terry impressed in recent scrimmages, but he may be headed for a redshirt. Dantonio believes he has four "big-time" quarterbacks, so it'll be interesting to see how much leash he allots Maxwell if the senior's play reverts to its 2012 form.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks compares Notre Dame LB Jaylon Smith to retired seven-time Pro Bowler Patrick Willis.

Willis was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers drafted No. 11 overall in 2007. "Jaylon Smith is an all-time athlete, a guy you absolutely love. He's a thumper in the middle, he can run from sideline to sideline. He's very violent in his play, a guy that I believe is a three-down linebacker, very versatile. He kind of reminds me of a young Patrick Willis in terms of his ability to play in the middle of a 3-4 defense," Brooks said. "(He'll) make plays, communicate all the calls, and do all the things you look for from that position. A natural leader. He's a guy that I think is going to be a star. If not for the injury, I think we're talking about a top-five talent." Smith tore his ACL and LCL in the Fiesta Bowl. His 2016 season is currently in question, though his rehab is reportedly ahead of schedule. An AFC college scouting director said last month that he believes Smith's "draft floor" is the No. 18 selection.

College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread believes Baylor DT Andrew Billings may challenge Stephen Paea's combine record of 49 reps on the bench press.

In the weight room, Billings is a freak among freaks. He and Mark Henry are arguably the two strongest high schoolers in American history (back in the day, Henry was called "the world's strongest teenager" by the Los Angeles Times). Rotoworld's Josh Norris ranks Billings as the No. 10 overall draft prospect and sees him being used in the NFL like the Panthers used Star Lotulelei. The 6-foot-1, 310-pounder has also drawn several comparisons to Aaron Donald.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks believes North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz could be used like Cam Newton in the NFL.

Similarly to Newton, the 6-foot-5, 233-pound Wentz is huge, athletic, creative, confident, always willing to test the defense. Oh, and they both come equipped with guns. "The comparison comes from watching Wentz play in the fall and watching him execute some of the concepts and tactics that Cam does for the Panthers," Brooks said. "Designed quarterback runs, powers, draw plays, some of the zone-read things, that leads me to believe a creative offensive coordinator could implement some of those things for him to take advantage of his unique athleticism for a guy his size." Brooks concluded: "People say (Joe) Flacco and some other guys (when making Wentz comparisons), but he's far more athletic than that. He's not the physical specimen than Cam is but he is a big-bodied, athletic quarterback who is very comfortable running and putting his body in harm's way."

South Carolina redshirt sophomore WR Shaq Davidson intends to transfer.

Davidson has left the team already. A 2014 four-star signee, Davidson redshirted in his first year and then missed last season with torn knee ligament sustained in preseason practices. The former Shrine Bowl and U.S. Army All-America Bowl selection figures to get plenty of love on the transfer free agent circuit.

Notre Dame LB Jaylon Smith's goal for the NFL Combine on Feb. 25 is to walk without crutches.

Smith is diligently rehabbing the torn ACL and LCL he suffered in his left knee at the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 1 (Smith underwent surgery Jan. 7). Set to report to the combine nearly eight weeks after the injury, a timetable that allows most people who suffered a similar injury to bear weight. "He’s looking really good," a source told 247 Sports last week. "We fully anticipate that when he gets to the combine and people see him, they’re going to be pretty impressed. (The specialists) are just flabbergasted at his recovery right now. They said people typically don’t recover like this. The one thing they’re really blown away by is how good his leg looks." It's too early to guess at when Smith will play in his first NFL game.

Navy RB Keenan Reynolds was not invited to the NFL Combine.

Since Reynolds is an undersized player making a position switch, this isn't necessarily surprising news. Considering his profile and work ethic, however, one would have assumed Reynolds had purchased a bit more leash from the NFL. "The former Navy quarterback is trying to convert to running back and/or return specialist -- whatever it takes to get a shot at the NFL -- but he'll have to wait until his pro day event to show scouts what he's capable of in the 40-yard dash and other agility drills," wrote NFL.com's Chad Reuter. "He looked good early in the week of East-West Shrine Game practices until a back injury sidelined him." NFL Network's Mike Mayock believes Reynolds shares similarities with New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman. Unfortunately, Reynolds won't get his chance to work out of the slot in Indianapolis.

While campaigning for a tax increase, Louisiana governor John Bel Edwards said the LSU football team is in jeopardy of being cut.

"If you are a student attending one of these universities, it means that you will receive a grade of incomplete, many students will not be able to graduate, and student-athletes across the state at those schools will be ineligible to play next semester," Edwards said. "That means you can say farewell to college football next fall." The state of Louisiana is facing a nearly $1 billion deficit, prompting Edwards' rhetoric. He also threatened that the state would be forced to shut down hospice services if new taxes aren't approved soon. Louisiana residents need not worry about LSU football going away. We aren't sure what will play worse among Edwards' denizens, the threat of axing the Bayou Bengals or the threat of yanking treatment for the sick. One way or the other, if Edwards gets anywhere near the beloved LSU football institution, he'll find himself clearing out his office soon thereafter.

Ohio State graduate RB Warren Ball transferred to Akron.

Terry Bowden‘s Zips pick up a former four-star recruit who had a tough time cracking into the Buckeye backfield rotation behind some guy named Ezekiel Elliott. Ball was the No. 16 running back in the country coming out of high school and the No. 193 player overall by Rivals. He rushed for 189 yards on 41 carries over the past three seasons.

Louisville junior LB Trevon Young (hip) is expected to miss the entire 2016 season.

Young suffered a dislocated and fractured hip in the Music City Bowl win over Texas A&M in December. It was a devastating injury that, according to the Louisville Courier Journal, a Nashville doctor said he had not seen a similar injury suffered in a football game (only in a traumatic event like a car accident). Luckily, says Young's father, the family has been told that the injury isn't as serious as the one suffered by Bo Jackson in the early 1990s. Young posted 8.5 sacks in 2015.

USC athletic director Pat Haden underwent "an unspecified medical procedure" on Thursday.

On Wednesday, the 63-year-old Haden felt light-headed while walking and nearly collapsed outside of Heritage Hall. He received medical attention and underwent the unspecified procedure the next day. Haden, who has a pacemaker, is expected to remain hospitalized for another day, maybe two.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler and Rotoworld's Josh Norris both consider Appalachian State DL Ronald Blair a top 50 prospect.

Blair had to drop out of the East West Shrine Game due to a minor injury suffered during training, and hopefully he will be ready for the Combine. Norris placed Blair as the No. 49 prospect in his latest rankings, and Brugler followed up last night by saying Blair is a top 40 talent. The Appalachian State defender plays on the edge and inside depending on the situation, and produced an outstanding game against Clemson. Expect to hear Blair's name from others as the process goes along.
