Notre Dame junior NT Louis Nix III (knee) will miss the remainder of the season.

Nix underwent season-ending meniscus surgery on Thursday. Between this procedure and his underwhelming game tape from earlier this season, there's a chance that Nix returns to South Bend for his senior season. Entering the season, the massive defensive lineman seemed to be a lock to be a Top-15 selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, but that is obviously no longer assured. Kona Schwenke and Jarron Jones are expected to share snaps at nose guard in Nix's place.

Stanford redshirt senior QB Keller Chryst will transfer as a graduate.

Chryst (6'5/236) began the 2017 season as starter for the Cardinal, but failed to spark the offense to any real degree -- four of his seven starts saw him throw for one or no touchdown passes -- before being supplanted by K.J. Costello in the middle of the campaign. Costello, entering his redshirt sophomore year in 2018, should have the starting job in Palo Alto on lock-down, making this a logical transfer by Chryst. As for where he might land for his final season of eligibility, USA Today's Dan Wolken forwards that Tennessee could be a program to watch.

Miami junior CB Malek Young will undergo career-ending neck surgery.

Young (5'9/180) sustained the neck injury during the first quarter of the team's Orange Bowl loss to Wisconsin earlier this winter. It's a tough turn of events for the Hurricanes, as the former three-star recruit was really starting to come into his own. He earned All-ACC honorable mention for the 2017 season after posting 43 tackles, eight passes defended and a pair of interceptions. He started 10 games for the Hurricanes during the campaign. Michael Jackson, Trajan Bandy and Jhavonte Dean are the three lone scholarship corners remaining on roster. The Canes also have a pair of four-star cornerbacks incoming in December signees Al Blades Jr. and Gilbert Frierson, though it would probably be optimistic to expect immediate contributions out the gate from those talented youngsters.

Four-star 2018 ATH Justin Watkins has verbally committed to Florida.

Watkins had previously been committed to Texas, and also has been a verbal commitment to LSU and Florida State. Long story short, Watkins has had himself a heck of a time in his recruiting process. It appears that Florida is the final destination, and it's a big get for the Gators. ESPN ranks him second among athlete prospects, with 247 Sports calling him the 16th best receiver in the country. Reports indicate he has tremendous speed and he'll be able to return kicks immediately, and that he also is strong enough to run over receivers. It shouldn't shock anyone if Watkins is an immediate contributor for the Florida offense and special teams.

Arkansas QB Austin Allen completed 6-of-9 passes for 75 yards in helping the National to a win over the American 23-0 on Saturday in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Allen was the most effective quarterback on the National side, which isn't saying a whole lot, if we're being honest. Still, the former Razorback signal-caller did make a couple of nice throws and helped lead his squad to victory. Injury concerns and disappointing results when he was healthy likely have Allen as an UDFA come draft time, barring a huge showing in his pro day.

Texas Tech QB Nic Shimonek completed 12-of-18 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in leading the West to a 14-10 victory over the East on Saturday in the East-West Shrine Game.

On a night where offense was hard to find, Shimonek was essentially the only effective quarterback on the night. It was mostly dinks-and-dunks, but the 6-2, 218-pound quarterback did make a couple of strong throws on the afternoon. Shimonek is going to have the stigma of being a quarterback in the Air Raid system, and also will be hurt by the fact that he was inconsistent in the 2017 campaign. Still, he does have some arm strength, and this was at least a positive step toward getting the former Red Raider signal-caller NFL looks.

Virginia Tech redshirt senior RB Travon McMillian transferred to Colorado as a graduate.

McMillian (6'0/194) announced his transfer intent at the end of the 2017 season. The former four-star recruit began his career with the Hokies in high style, rushing for 1,043 yards (5.2 YPC) and seven touchdowns as a true freshman during the 2015 season. The good times would not last off that strong showing, though, as McMillian's rushing totals dropped each of the following two years. He bottomed out with just 439 yards on the ground for the most recent campaign. While McMillian was a diminishing factor as his career progressed in Blacksburg, Colorado makes for a nice landing spot for playing time with the prolific Phillip Lindsay no longer on roster.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Oregon has hired Washington State RB Jim Mastro to serve in the same capacity.

According to the Seattle Times' Stefanie Loh, Mastro decided to take the job earlier in the week, but was holding off on announcing out of respect for QB Tyler Hilinski, who was found dead in his apartment on Tuesday following an apparent suicide attempt. Mastro has been on staff with Washington State since 2012, when the program initially hired HC Mike Leach. He showed a creativity at getting his backs involved in Leach's pass-happy Air Raid, most notably during the 2016 season, when Wazzu running backs combined to total 1,660 yards on the ground and 1,034 yards receiving. With the Ducks, he'll be helping to usher in the post-Royce Freeman era. Tony Brooks-James remains in the fold in Eugene and is set to step up as starter for the 2018 season.

Cal senior RB Tre Watson will transfer as a graduate.

Watson (5'10/190) had one year eligibility left after the 2017 season. He'll be using that with a different program. During his time with Cal, the former four-star recruit appeared in 37 contests, making eight starts in that space. His high-water mark with the Golden Bears came in 2016, when he rushed for 709 yards (5.0 YPC) and four touchdowns. Alas, he was largely unable to build on that encouraging campaign, as a lower body injury sustained this past September knocked him out for the bulk of the 2017 season. Cal's now working with an exceedingly threadbare cupboard at running back, having already lost Vic Enwere to graduation and Zion Echols and Billy McCrary III to transfers prior to Watson also opting to exit stage left. Patrick Laird -- who came on to rush for 1,127 yards and eight touchdowns in 2017 -- is in line to start from the word "go" come the fall barring injury.

The NCAA's Board of Governors will allow new transfer rule proposals to be made in April.

Such proposals can be made in April, with a vote on them potentially coming in June. ESPN's Matt Schick relayed on Wednesday that he had spoken with one NCAA official who believes there's a 95-percent chance that a rule is implemented -- at some point -- which will allow non-graduates to transfer without having to sit out a year. Should such a rule pass, it figures to have parameters attached to it to prevent a free-for-all, with Schick noting that it could include a potential "transfer window" or perhaps academic benchmarks. We'll have a much more clear idea of what's being cooked up come April. It's still possible that a sea change on the transfer rule might not be made until next year.

NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang projects Washington to select Georgia LB Roquan Smith with the 13th pick in his latest mock draft.

The headline if Smith does go to Washington writes itself. Most mocks we've seen have a quarterback going in this spot, but as Rang points out, Washington has an obvious need at linebacker as well with five of them set for free agency. "Smith, the 2017 Butkus Award winner as the nation’s top linebacker, lacks ideal bulk but his speed to the flanks and in coverage makes him perfectly suited to today’s modern pass-happy NFL," Rang writes. If Smith does "fall" here and Kirk Cousins is brought back, this is an obvious fit.

Ohio State received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 DT Tyler Friday.

Friday made his decision on Friday (we know, we know), and chooses the Buckeyes over finalists Michigan, UCLA, Penn State and Miami. He's rated the fourth-best defensive tackle in the class by 247 Sports, and the 126th best player overall in ESPN's rankings. Reports indicate that he'll need to work on shedding blocks, but that he has a relentless motor and is an effective tackler. It sounds like the already loaded Ohio State class gets even better.
