Former Oregon junior TE Colt Lyerla was arrested for unlawful possession of cocaine and interfering with a police officer on Wednesday.

Police saw Lyerla snort a white powdery substance in a parked vehicle in Eugene, Oregon. Lyerla later admitted to using cocaine. Police and Lyerla agreed to continue the investigation at his apartment, but once arriving, the tight end ran to a nearby apartment and was promptly arrested. He was released from jail at 9:20 pm PT. Lyerla left the Oregon program a few weeks ago following an ongoing dispute with coaches. Despite having early round talent, we doubt Lyerla will be drafted. Matt Miller was the first to report the arrest.

Baylor redshirt senior QB Seth Russell wrote on Instagram that "[a]lthough I was in a different hemisphere, the heartache was still immensely present [after HC Art Briles' firing]."

Russell addressed Briles' firing, but only in generality. "My prayers for Baylor University are that we never forget that we need God as desperately on our best days as we do on our worst," Russell wrote. "We will overcome. We will become stronger. We will be who God has allowed us to be." At the time of Briles' firing on Thursday, Russell was in South America doing missionary work along with over 30 other Baylor student-athletes.

ESPN's Max Olson reports that Baylor four-star 2016 RB Kameron Martin has asked for a release from his letter of intent.

Per Olson, Martin does not plan on enrolling with the rest of Baylor's 2016 class next week, with HC Art Briles' firing serving as the catalyst. The 5-foot-10, 175-pounder initially committed to the Bears all the way back in the summer of 2014 and signed a national letter of intent in February. Also included in Olson's report, a note that Martin communicated with Baylor's staff on Friday and that they encouraged him to do what was in his best interest.

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon wrote that he will remain with the program.

On Friday night, Cannon tweeted (in all-caps), "Baylor is my home and that['s] where I will stay and finish my college career." With Corey Coleman heading to the Browns in the draft, the 5-foot-11, 170-pound Cannon is in line to be the Bears' No. 1 receiver for 2016. He piled up 868 yards and six touchdowns on 50 catches last season. Several recruits have backed off their commitments to Baylor since the firing of HC Art Briles on Thursday, but those in the program are showing no signs of wanting to flee.

Three-star 2017 QB Jay Urich committed to South Carolina.

Urich announced his decision during a ceremony at Wren High School in Piedmont, South Carolina. The 6-foot-3, 186-pound dual-threat gunslinger explained that his connection with the Gamecock coaching staff played a huge part in his commitment. "I'd say just the coaches, Coach Roper, Coach Muschamp, feeling comfortable with them. They're just an awesome staff that I'm comfortable with." He stands as South Carolina's ninth commitment for the 2017 cycle and their first of the quarterback species.

A proposed Big 12 rule change could restore the year of eligibility Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield lost when he transferred from Texas Tech.

A Big 12 official told ESPN that the proposed rule change wouldn't dock walk-ons transferring within the conference a season of eligibility. Mayfield, of course, lost a season of eligibility after transferring from Texas Tech (where he walked on) following his freshman year. The conference will discuss the proposal next week at the Big 12's annual spring meetings. If it passes, Mayfield will be eligible in 2017. If it doesn't, he's entering his final season as a Sooner. Mayfield was the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year and finished fourth in the Heisman voting in 2015 (3,700 yards with a 36/7 TD/INT ratio).

CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd reports that Baylor, embroiled in a sexual assault scandal, hired a powerful law firm "in part as a hedge against a repeat of the NCAA's controversial penalties applied to Penn State."

Per Dodd's sources, neither the NCAA nor the law firm believe Baylor committed "traditional NCAA infractions." Instead, the school is concerned that the NCAA may attempt to make a P.R. stance in punitively punishing Baylor outside its bylaws, as happened to Penn State following the Jerry Sandusky criminal case. On Thursday, Baylor released an independent report that concluded football personnel ignored sexual assault allegations and "discouraged complainants" from reporting them. Officially, Baylor announced it hired the law firm -- Bond, Schoeneck and King of Overland Park, Kansas, the nation's elite firm when it comes to NCAA litigation -- "to initially discuss possible NCAA infractions."

Former Baylor HC Art Briles' daughter, Staley Lebby, released a post on Facebook defending her father's integrity and calling his firing a "media witch hunt."

"This media witch hunt has been the most disturbing thing I've ever witnessed. The situation has been blown so out of proportion. Sadly," Lebby wrote, "Baylor was influenced heavily by the media and felt pressured to let him go. I guess a man that has resurrected your program and made you a top 10 program wasn't worth fighting for or defending." She praised Briles' character at length in her post and called him "one of the most giving & unselfish people I've ever been around." Baylor players voiced similar sentiments on Twitter, with senior safety Orion Stewardt saying that Briles "[t]ook a chance on a skinny ass kid wit barely any offers" and sophomore defensive tackle Andrew Morris writing simply "Injustice."

In an interview with Tigerbait.com, LSU AD Joe Avella spoke at length about last season's near-firing of HC Les Miles, saying that "what happened is just part of the business."

"Going through that process was a good thing. It forced everybody to take a hard look at things. It forced me to take a hard look. It forced Les to take a hard look," Avella said. Miles was -- by several outlets -- already out the door in late November, but it was announced after the team's season-ending win over Texas A&M that he would be retained for 2016. Avella insisted to Tigerbait.com that the turmoil only helped to solidify what LSU is working toward. "Going through that scrutiny was not a bad thing. It forced us to make sure we are doing it the best we can." The athletic director added that he feels "very optimistic" about the team's potential this coming season.
