Fresno State senior Derek Carr has "everything you want from your quarterback from a character standpoint," according to one NFL executive.

"He's a two-time elected captain at Fresno State," The executive told NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah. "He has done a ton of community work, he's a man of faith and his family is very important to him. He has always shown resilience in crunch time on the football field. We expect off-field impact to factor into the decision making process more than ever this season, and Carr should impress the national media in the same way during the Senior Bowl and Combine.

Transferring Stanford redshirt senior QB Keller Chryst will visit Tennessee this weekend.

Chryst (6'5/236) will not be graduating until June, meaning that his transfer is going to be more "eventual" than "imminent." As of yet, the Vols have not extended a scholarship offer to the gunslinger, who is moving on after being supplanted by K.J. Costello as starter for the Cardinal during this past season. He's not the only transferring quarterback intrigued by the Vols -- you can count ECU's Gardner Minshew in that same boat. The appeal with Tennessee comes in what should be an open competition at starting signal-caller this spring and summer. Quinten Dormady is transferring out, while Jarrett Guarantano largely failed to impress in his starting opportunities after Dormady was sidelined by shoulder surgery midway through the 2017 campaign. Guarantano and sophomore Will McBride figure to see the bulk of work in competition as matters currently stand, but they might have company soon enough.

Transferring ECU senior QB Gardner Minshew said that he has been in contact with both Tennessee and Auburn.

Looks like there could be some competition for Alabama on this one, though it should be noted that neither Auburn nor Tennessee has offered Minshew as of yet. Alabama has extended an offer and the 6-foot-2, 216-pounder will be off on a visit to Tuscaloosa on Friday. While that outwardly would seem like something of an awkward fit given that the champs already house Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts, Minshew shed some light on his thought process while speaking with Sports Illustrated this week, explaining that he is interested in coaching after his collegiate career is over and would love to see Nick Saban work his magic. Beyond that, he said that he "want[s] to be part of something special." Breaking down the other potential contenders, here, Tennessee's situation would offer him a a chance to compete for playing time come August camp. Auburn, not so much.

Walter Football's Charlie Campbell reports that Wisconsin LB Jack Cichy (knee) will not be able to participate in athletic testing at the NFL Scouting Combine.

This was always a possibility after Cichy sat out the entirety of the 2017 season while rehabbing from a torn ACL sustained in August camp. The 6-foot-2, 233-pounder's draft standing is understandably in flux now. Campbell assigns him a grade for Rds. 4-6, NFLDraftScout is more conservative, applying a Rds. 6-7 grade, while Draft Analyst pegs him with a sixth-round projection. It's not clear at this juncture just when Cichy will be at full health, though he figures to be ready for NFL training camp this summer assuming he does not suffer a setback in recovery.

Marshall redshirt sophomore DT Larry Aaron passed away following complications from a New Year's Eve shooting which had left him paralyzed.

Aaron was paralyzed after he was struck in the back by a stray bullet while at a New Year's Eve party. He took the bullet while stepping in front of his girlfriend in order to protect her. After almost two months struggling with complications, sadly, the defensive tackle has passed away. In a statement, HC Doc Holliday said, "His loss will be felt in every corner of our program and his spirit will never be forgotten." Aaron was just 19 years old.

Walter Football's Charlie Campbell reports that Arkansas C Frank Ragnow (ankle) will be unable to perform in athletic testing at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Ragnow (6'5/319) saw his 2017 season cut short near the end of October due to a high ankle sprain. That pesky injury prevented him from playing in the Senior Bowl last month. Looks like it will knock him out for yet another key part of the evaluating process, too. Arkansas will be holding its pro day on March 26. That will be Ragnow's next chance to make a mark in athletic testing. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom ranks him as the No. 3 center prospect in this draft class, trailing only Iowa's James Daniels and Ohio State's Billy Price. While he's been utilized largely at center over the past two campaigns in Fayetteville, Ragnow also has experience at guard. He profiles as a probable Day 2 selection for the spring.

The Bowling Green Daily News' Brad Stephens reports that Washington State will hire Western Kentucky QB coach Steve Spurrier Jr.

Stephens does not specify exactly what role Spurrier Jr. is expected to take on staff in Pullman, but at the very least, it'll likely come on the offensive side of the ball. One of the more famous sons in the CFB coaching ranks, Spurrier Jr. began his coaching career at South Carolina working in a variety of capacities under his father from 2005-15 before moving on to accept the role of recruiting and offensive specialist at Oklahoma prior to the 2016 season. Then onward to Western Kentucky as quarterbacks coach for the 2017 campaign and now onward once more to Wazzu.

Arkansas redshirt sophomore QB Cole Kelley pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated.

Kelley was arrested on Nov. 12 after he rolled up onto a curb at 4:00 AM. He did not agree to a breathalyzer test at the time. Arkansas suspended him for one game following this indiscretion. He's been sentenced to 90 days in prison, but 89 of those have been suspended, with the final one already credited. All of this just means that Kelley will not actually be serving any time. He will, however, be required to take an alcohol safety test as well as pay $720 in fines and court fees. The 6-foot-7, 268-pound gunslinger started four games in place of an injured Austin Allen last season and will be competing with redshirt junior Ty Storey (among others) for starting honors during the coming campaign.

Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph (foot) said he's 100-percent healthy.

Rudolph was forced to miss the Senior Bowl while recovering from a mid-foot sprain suffered in the bowl game. He'll be healthy for the NFL Combine, including throwing drills -- though Rudolph said he may not be able to do the short shuttle or L-drill. "As of today, I'm running full speed during some 20- and 40-yard dashes," he said. "I'm also 100 percent in regard to throwing and all of that." The 6-foot-5, 230-pounder was asked about pre- and post-snap reads in the OSU offense, a question mark surrounding his pre-draft evaluation process. "When I dropped back, there were a lot of progression reads," he said. "Yes, there were coverage reads that eliminated one side of the field. But there were true progressions as well where I had to look at one, two, three, four or even five depending on the coverage."

Stanford redshirt freshman QB Davis Mills (knee) will miss spring practice.

Mills initially injured his knee during his senior season of high school, with HC David Shaw saying recently that the 6-foot-2, 188-pounder had a setback in the fall which will keep him sidelined through spring work. Stanford is exceedingly thin at quarterback, as not only will Mills miss the spring, but starter K.J. Costello (hip) is already a real question mark for the upcoming practices. Sports Illustrated reported earlier this month that Costello was not expected to take part in full drills. With Stanford now down two quarterbacks, look for junior Jack Richardson to see plenty of spring reps. Both Mills and Costello still have ample time to get right before the start of August camp and we'll keep tab on the pair as the offseason continues on its ever-winding way.

Tennessee hired Alabama offensive analyst Chris Weinke to serve as running backs coach.

The Crimson Tide brought Weinke in last winter. This new job in Knoxville will be his first serving as an on-field coach at the collegiate level. Prior to his gig in Tuscaloosa, he served as quarterbacks coach for the NFL's Rams from 2015-16 and earlier worked as head coach for the high school football factory that is IMG Academy down in Florida (2010-14). At Tennessee, Weinke will be tasked with helping Ty Chandler to break in as full-time starter following John Kelly's departure for the NFL.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 LB Marcel Brooks is deciding between LSU and Alabama.

Brooks (6'3/200) will be making his choice on June 25. He'll be visiting LSU for their junior day on March 3, a week from Saturday and will also visit Alabama before he makes his final decision. Should a team from outside his top two programs make a push, it would probably be Oklahoma. While it seems that he's narrowed his decision down to the bare essentials, we're still four months away from his scheduled commitment date and recruiting tides can shift rather quickly. Brooks ranks as the No. 111 overall prospect in the 2019 class on the 247Sports composite board. He's a physical defender with an awesome first step, one who has room to add functional weight onto his frame without losing any of his athletic edge.
