Wisconsin senior WR Jared Abbrederis has been cleared to play against Illinois.

Abbrederis suffered a head injury in the blowout win against Northwestern. The term "concussion" was never used, and we wonder if Abbrederis could have returned if the game was a tighter contest.

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.

Michigan State junior DL Malik McDowell announced he will enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

McDowell is a highly regarded prospect, standing at 6-foot-7 and 290-pounds. The defensive lineman previously said he would only depart for the NFL if he was going to be selected with a top three pick, but there is no way of knowing that this far in advance. McDowell missed a number of games with an undisclosed injury, although some speculation pointed to an ankle issue. He registered 24.5 tackles for loss in three seasons, including 13 sacks.

Notre Dame redshirt junior QB Malik Zaire is visiting Wisconsin and UNC this week, according to Pete Sampson of Irish Illustrated.

Zaire is visiting Wisconsin on Wednesday and UNC on Friday. UNC was not in consideration at first due to release restrictions, but those have now been lifted and Zaire could find his way onto a team Notre Dame plays next season. Sampson notes Auburn has shown interest in Zaire, but "but Zaire’s desire to get away from a run-first spread offense is likely to kill off that courtship before it starts." Florida is on probation form graduate transfers.

Former Tennessee junior RB Jalen Hurd has now turned his attention to the NFL rather than transferring to another program, according to Tennessee radio host Brent Dougherty.

If true, the change in plans is not surprising. Hurd left Tennessee after stating the offense did not fit him, and reports stated he might pursue tight end or receiver at his next school. Hurd's trainer hinted the ball carrier could jump to the NFL, which makes sense than switching positions. Hurd flashed promise at times, but he's a slower bigger back who does not create on his own often enough. He is a very comfortable receiver.

Alabama redshirt freshman QB Blake Barnett announced his transfer to Arizona State.

Barnett left the school in late September and has taken classes at the JUCO level since. He played in the season opener but decided to leave once Jalen Hurts took over as the starter. Alabama beat writer Matt Zenitz notes Barnett will be eligible to play following the fourth game of next season. Barnett has three years of eligibility remaining.

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.
