Florida junior CB Marcus Roberson will be sidelined for the remainder of the game against Miami with a knee injury.

Roberson had posted a solid game while on the field, displaying nice positioning to box out Cane receivers along the sideline. Loucheiz Purifoy gets a ton of attention in the Gators' secondary, and deservedly so, but Roberson is a legitimate prospect too.

Vanderbilt received a verbal commit from four-star 2018 LB Alston Orji.

"This is an excellent pickup for Vanderbilt, both from an ability and need standpoint," writes ESPN's Craig Haubert, who adds that Orji "could arrive with an opportunity to quickly compete for playing time or at least add quality depth." Haubert comps him to former Florida LB Jarrad Davis and notes that "like Davis, (Orji) can be an explosive and physical defender with the tools to be a strong three-down contributor." The 6-foot-2, 216-pounder ranks as the Worldwide Leader's No. 288 overall prospect. Rivals is even more optimistic about his collegiate potential, slotting him in at No. 90 on their 2018 master list.

An NFC scout called Penn State junior RB Saquon Barkley "special."

"He's special," said an NFC scout. "He is as complete as they come at the position." NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks likens Barkley to a "young Frank Gore." Brooks says the 5-foot-11, 223-pound Barkley's "uncanny ability to shift from power to finesse is uncommon, which is why running back coaches will salivate over his game at the next level." To the scout's point about Barkley's well-rounded game, Brooks also praises the prospect's skills as a receiver out of the backfield and his blocking ability. "Although he hasn't put the finishing touches on his collegiate resume, Barkley certainly has the talent and potential to be a dominant player at the next level," Brooks wrote.

NFL.com named LSU junior CB Donte Jackson the fastest player in college football.

We're not going to argue. Jackson has clocked a 4.24s 40-yard dash. But that's just the start. He posted a 10.22s 100-meter dash last month at the SEC Relays, and a 6.63s 60-meter dash at the 2016 SEC Indoor Championships. His track coach at LSU, Dennis Shaver, has compared Jackson to former Tigers speedster Trindon Holliday, while former teammate and Jets first-round pick Jamal Adams has described Jackson's speed as "God-given." The 5-foot-11, 173-pound Jackson will assume Tre'Davious White's role as LSU's top cornerback this fall.

Illinois head coach Lovie Smith dismissed sophomore G Darta Lee.

Army junior RB Tyler Campbell transferred to Elon.

One of Army’s best offensive skill guys -- Campbell ran for 326 yards on 34 carries (a ridiculous 9.6 yards per carry) as a starting slotback last year -- Campbell intends to switch positions at his new school. The Phoenix listed him as a cornerback and returner. Campbell is eligible to play immediately for the FCS school and has two seasons of eligibility left.

Mississippi State received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 QB Jalen Mayden.

Mayden sided with the Bulldogs over Baylor, Louisville, Nebraska and Tennessee. He is intrigued by the prospect of working with Mississippi State HC Dan Mullen, saying, "I liked to see the progression that [his quarterbacks] had from their freshman year to their senior year, and I feel like he really knows how to make a good quarterback." And in a note of synchronicity, the 6-foot-2, 196-pounder actually compared his game to that of Dak Prescott last summer. Scout.com ranks Mayden as the No. 100 overall prospect in the 2018 cycle, with outlet analyst Greg Powers noting that he "can pull the ball down and run as his stats suggest, but he is more of pass first quarterback who will make his reads and progressions in the pocket."

Nebraska received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 ATH Mario Goodrich.

While Goodrich does a little bit of everything at Lee's Summit West (Missouri) -- he has worked as a receiver, cornerback and kick returner -- Nebraska views the 6-foot-2, 180-pounder as a corner. Rivals' Nate Clouse notes that Goodrich "has terrific ball reactions which combined with his size and length make him a pass break-up and interception machine." That assessment rings true based on his work as a high school junior in 2016, when he notched seven interceptions while breaking up 12 passes. Goodrich ranks as Rivals' No. 202 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle and gives Nebraska 12 commitments in the class. Sleep on the Cornhuskers' recruiting work at your own peril -- they currently sit at No. 6 in Rivals' team rankings. Only Ohio State (No. 4) and Penn State (No. 2) rank higher in the Big Ten.

NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah compares UCLA junior QB Josh Rosen to New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning.

"In terms of how he's played the position, and maybe even athletically a little bit, I wrote down Eli Manning," Jeremiah said. Rosen threw for 3,670 passing yards and 23 touchdowns as a freshman in 2015 but regressed in 2016, largely due to a shoulder injury that cut his season in half. "He's got a firm base. You see him climb up in the pocket, and he is smooth and easy. You talk about a natural throwing motion, he's outstanding, and he's aware," Jeremiah said. "I thought he got a little bit greedy at times when he could have taken some (completions) underneath, but he does a nice job of keeping his eyes up under pressure. He needs to do a better job of giving up on a play. He takes some unnecessary sacks because of that."

Texas freshman TE Reese Leitao's felony drug charge was reduced to a misdemeanor.

In February, Leitao was arrested on felony drug possession charges after getting caught on school grounds selling Xanax. Texas HC Tom Herman hasn't yet made a decision on the tight end's status. "We're aware of the recent proceedings regarding Reese Leitao and are gathering facts," Herman said. "After the latest information is thoroughly reviewed by me and our staff and the Athletics Department, we will make a decision regarding Reese's status with our program." Leitao was the nation's No. 19 tight end this past cycle, per the 247Sports Composite.

NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes Wyoming redshirt junior QB Josh Allen is a better NFL prospect than Patrick Mahomes.

"Just based off what I saw last year, I think Allen is more talented than Mahomes. ... I think he's got better feet, quicker feet, he's more natural," Jeremiah said. "He's under center, so ... he's ahead of Mahomes, but they have the same strengths and the same weaknesses." Fellow analyst Bucky Brooks agrees that Allen won't need as much developmental time as Mahomes. Jeremiah likened Allen to a "more athletic" Joe Flacco. "The ball just jumps out of his hand. He does see some ghosts in the pocket; he'll bail out of clean pockets, but he'll make some incredible 'wow' throws on the move much like we saw last year from Mahomes. He's a rare arm talent," Jeremiah said. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom likened Allen's game to Mahomes' in his 2018 mock draft, writing that Allen "isn’t quite the gun-slinging risk-taker that Pat Mahomes is, but Allen wouldn’t be out of place playing craps at Mahomes’ table in Las Vegas."
