Virginia Tech senior QB Logan Thomas is listed in the third tier of draft-eligible prospects at the position by ESPN's Todd McShay.

Thomas lands ahead of the fourth tier, which is designated by a "day three" tag. "From his size to his arm strength to his ability to spin the ball to his mobility, Thomas has everything you look for in terms of physical qualities," McShay explains. "But he has to show more consistency. No QB in this class produces more varied opinions -- some scouts still love him, and some have completely written him off." Thomas is currently undraftable from a passing standpoint, but we have conceded to the fact that he will be selected earlier than his play indicates.

USF HC Willie Taggart will be Oregon's next head coach, according to ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

Taggart's name popped on occasion, but some reports gave him no chance of landing this position. Oregon decision makers disagreed, and Taggart was hired over names like P.J. Fleck. Taggart played football at WKU and coached there from 2010-2012 before taking the USF job in 2013 in his home state of Florida. His team is 17-4 over the last 21 games. Taggart has shown a willingness to change styles, as he fired offensive and defensive coordinators after a slow start at USF, something many coaches struggle with. This is the first external hire at Oregon in a very long time.

Clemson junior QB Deshaun Watson was named the winner of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award.

The Golden Arm is handed out annually to the top senior or junior quarterback (on track to graduate with his class) in the country. Watson earns the honor on the strength of 3,914 yards passing (67.6% completions) and a 37/15 TD/INT ratio over the course of 13 contests completed. The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder will also be attending Heisman proceedings in New York on Saturday, though Louisville QB Lamar Jackson may already be setting up camp in the Heisman House at this juncture.

Tennessee received a verbal commitment from five-star 2017 T Trey Smith.

The Volunteers might have disappointed with an 8-4 2016 campaign, but that was apparently not enough to sway Smith from making a commitment to Tennessee. This is a monster pledge. The 6-foot-6, 299-pounder ranks as ESPN 300's No. 1 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle. Ole Miss, Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Ohio State were also in the running for his commitment. Scout.com notes that Smith "has a great frame with good feet, flexibility, and the ability to be one who protects the quarterback and opens holes for running backs." The outlet calls him a "finisher."

CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd hears that Oklahoma OC Lincoln Riley "killed it" during his interview for Houston's head-coaching position.

A plugged-in source had nothing but a glowing review for Riley's interview performance, telling Dodd, "I would be surprised if they don't hire him." Having spent eight years at Texas Tech, Riley already has the requisite roots in the state. Current Cougars coordinators Major Applewhite and Todd Orlando have also reportedly drawn interviews, as well as former LSU HC Les Miles and Alabama OC Lane Kiffin. Expect an official decision on Houston's Tom Herman replacement by the end of the week.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller reports that Stanford junior RB Christian McCaffrey will declare for the 2017 NFL Draft.

No huge surprise there. McCaffrey was limited by injury during the middle of the 2016, missing one contest due to the undisclosed ailment, but has bounced back to end the regular-season campaign in high style. The 6-foot, 202-pounder ripped Rice and Cal for back-to-back 200-yard efforts in Stanford's final two games to conclude a stretch of five consecutive contests in which he rushed for at least 135 yards. McCaffrey's 211.55 all-purpose yards per game mark is the best in the country, while his 1,596 rushing yards are the most by a back in the Pac-12. He will have a chance to make one final game-impression on the scouting community when Stanford plays North Carolina in the Sun Bowl on December 30.

ESPN's Sam Khan Jr. reports that Houston has interviewed Alabama OC Lane Kiffin, former LSU HC Les Miles, OC Major Applewhite and DC Todd Orlando for their open head-coaching position.

Per Khan, Houston is expected to make their hire to replace the departed Tom Herman by the end of the week. ESPN's Brett McMurphy previously reported that former Baylor HC Art Briles has also received an interview. Should Kiffin come away with the gig -- Nick Saban is said to be in support of him taking the job -- he is still expected to patrol the Bama sideline during their Playoff-run-to-be.

The Oklahoma Supreme Court has ruled that the videotape of Oklahoma redshirt sophomore RB Joe Mixon punching a woman from summer 2014 is part of the public record.

Mixon was suspended for the entirety of the 2014 season after he was hit with a misdemeanor assault charge on allegation of punching a woman in the face that summer. The restaurant where the incident occurred recorded it on video, but that tape has yet to be released to the public. With the state ruling the video as public record, it will now be released. Oklahoma HC Bob Stoops has repeatedly defended Mixon after he served his suspension, saying over the offseason that he believes the running back has made good and has met "high standards" in the two years since the assault occurred.

Alabama senior ILB Reuben Foster was named the winner of the Butkus Award.

The Butkus Award is handed out annually to the nation's best linebacker. Foster registered 94 tackles (12.0 for loss), four sacks and a pair of passes defended. The 6-foot-1, 240-pounder was also a finalist for the Nagurski Award, but teammate Jonathan Allen ultimately won that honor.

Alabama senior DL Jonathan Allen was named the winner of the Nagurski Trophy.

The Nagurski Trophy is awarded annually to the nation's best defensive player. Somewhat surprisingly, an Alabama player had never won the award prior to the 6-foot-3, 291-pound Allen scooping up the honor. He did so on the strength of 56 tackles (13.0 for loss), 8.5 sacks, 15 quarterback hurries and a pair of fumbles recovered and returned for touchdowns. Allen won the award over fellow finalists Reuben Foster, Clemson's Christian Wilkins, Michigan's Jabrill Peppers and FSU's Tavarus McFadden.

Tennessee senior QB Joshua Dobbs has accepted an invitation to play in the NFLPA all star game.

Dobbs was always a name that popped up in terms of quarterbacks at big programs with potential, but he has improved very little despite a wealth of playing time. Tennessee failed to reach expectations on the field, and Dobbs will do his best during the draft process to earn a draftable grade.

Temple head coach Matt Rhule is taking the same position at Baylor, according to Bruce Feldman.

We wondered where the Rhule buzz went from a year ago, and now we know. Baylor has been connected with many names over the last month, but not once did we see Rhule's name pop up. Rhule, a former Penn State linebacker, has only one head coaching job under his belt (Temple) from 2013 until now. He has not coached any lower than North Carolina and especially not in Texas, so Rhule's recruiting might get interesting with pipelines already in place. Hiring some assistants close to Texas or with ties to the state is likely part of the plan.
