CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman has heard Auburn redshirt sophomore LT Greg Robinson could be a top 15 selection.

Feldman adds Robinson's stock is "really rising" in the NFL scouting world thanks to his size, athleticism, and nasty attitude. Robinson is an odd evaluation, since the Auburn offense implements plenty of crash down blocks and keeps individual matchups on the edge to a minimum. Those plays where Robinson gets no help on an island in pass rushing situations will need to be spotlighted.

Stanford will name former Cardinal quarterback Tavita Pritchard their new offensive coordinator.

The 30-year-old Pritchard takes over for Mike Bloomgren, who left to take the head coaching job at Rice. Pritchard has been with Stanford coaching staff since 2010, and played for the Cardinal from 2005-2009. He previously was the wide receiver and quarterback coach.

Texas A&M hired Memphis OC Darrell Dickey to the same position.

Dickey spent six years with the Tigers, spanning the entirety of Justin Fuente's tenure and the beginning of Mike Norvell's. This year, his unit ranked in the top-five in the FBS in scoring, total offense and yards per play. He has deep Texas roots, having previously been a grad assistant at A&M, the offensive coordinator at UTEP, SMU and Texas State and the head coach at North Texas from 1998-06. All that seems to be a fit for Jimbo Fisher, but it'll be interesting to see where these two minds meet with regards to a finished-product Aggie offense. Fisher's offenses at FSU were slow, methodical and, according to critics, overly-complicated. Memphis played much faster.

SMU hired Sonny Dykes as head coach.

Dykes, a Mike Leach disciple who runs a variation of the Air Raid, burst onto the scene as by rebuilding Louisiana Tech in three short years. His Bulldogs went 22-15 and won the 2011 WAC title, their first in a decade. The next year, his LTU offense averaged 51.5 points and 478 yards per game. Dykes left for Cal, where his tenure was up-and-down. He went 8-5 and won the 2015 Armed Forces Bowl while grooming a future No. 1 overall pick (QB Jared Goff), but success was fleeting (he went 19-30 at Cal) and the administration tired of his wandering eye. Dykes, a Big Spring native and a former Texas Tech player and assistant, has deep Texas roots that'll help him as he takes over a Texan-laden SMU roster. Morris focused his recruiting efforts in-state, and Dykes figures to do the same. Dykes' system is a nice fit for SMU's returning talent. WR Courtland Sutton is no doubt headed to the NFL, but Dykes may be able to convince 100-catch WR Trey Quinn to stay along with James Proche.

Florida redshirt junior DT Taven Bryan announced on Twitter that he'll enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

"Coach (Dan) Mullen coming back to Gainesville made this decision very difficult because I have the highest regard for him and I believe he is going to bring greatness to #GatorNation," Bryan wrote. The 6-foot-4, 295-pounder broke out in 2017 after previously being used as part of a rotation. He finished with 40 tackles, six TFL, four sacks and three quarterback hurries. If Bryan tests well at the combine as expected, he'll have a decent chance to go on Day 2. Walter Football's Charlie Campbell, who reported in late November that Bryan would declare, has heard Bryan compared by scouts to the Chiefs' Chris Jones and the Broncos' Derek Wolfe.

Florida State HC Willie Taggart said the Seminoles offense will play with more tempo and be less complicated than it has in the past.

Jimbo Fisher's offenses were criticized for being slow -- the Seminoles averaged just 61 plays per game last season, in the bottom-10 nationally -- and overly complicated. Taggart's offense is the opposite. He describes his Gulf Coast offense with the words "lethal simplicity." By that he means granting players supreme freedom within the up-tempo system, a tact that previously allowed Quinton Flowers' career to take off at USF. Taggart has plenty of toys to play with in Tallahassee, with two quarterbacks who have starting experience (Deondre Francois and James Blackman), a two-headed RB monster (Jacques Patrick and Cam Akers) and a host of athletes on the outside headlined by Noonie Murray and Auden Tate. They're a perfect fit for what he wants to do.

Wyoming redshirt junior QB Josh Allen (shoulder) said his shoulder still isn't where he wants it to be.

Allen indicated that he'll know in the next few days if he'll be able to play in the bowl game. The Cowboys gunslinger has repeatedly stated that he'll play in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on Dec. 22 against Central Michigan if he's healthy enough to do so. Allen will declare for the NFL Draft after that game. He was honored by the school on Senior Day as a farewell.

Ole Miss sophomore QB Shea Patterson announced on Twitter that he will transfer to Michigan.

Jim Harbaugh must have pulled out all the stops during Patterson's weekend visit to Ann Arbor, because Patterson has ended his abrupt re-recruitment, well, abruptly. Patterson (6'2/203), a former five-star prospect and the No. 1-ranked QB in the class of 2016, is on the move following sanctions the NCAA recently handed down to Ole Miss due to a series of infractions. Those sanctions came with a 2018 bowl ban, which permitted Rebel seniors to transfer without sitting out a year. Patterson isn't a senior, but he and other Rebel non-seniors figure to argue to the NCAA that they were misled about the severity of potential penalties facing the program by former HC Hugh Freeze during recruitment. If Patterson's eligibility waiver is granted by the NCAA, his move is a potential 2018 sea changer. If the waiver is denied, Patterson will sit out in 2018 (he'd be a redshirt junior in 2019) and redshirt freshman Brandon Peters and true freshman Dylan McCaffrey will vie for the starting job.

Iowa redshirt junior S Brandon Snyder was arrested on drunken driving charges.

Pulled over Kinnick Stadium early Sunday morning, Snyder told police he had been drinking. He failed a breathalyzer test. It's been a rough year for Iowa's 2016 starting free safety. He tore his left ACL in spring practice in April only to make a remarkably-fast return on October 7 against Illinois. Too fast, it turned out, as Snyder re-tore the ACL (but not before he had a pick-six in the game). "While we are currently gathering additional facts, we are very disappointed to learn of Brandon's involvement," HC Kirk Ferentz said in the statement. "Brandon is subject to the rules and regulations of the UI Student-Athlete Code of Conduct, and the rules and regulations of our football program."

Pitt junior S Jordan Whitehead announced his intention to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Whitehead moved around at the safety spot over the last three seasons, and some might even view him as a corner. Still just 20 years old, Whitehead broke out as a true freshman in 2015 and followed it up in 2016 with another strong season. 2017 included a few hiccups, but Whitehead likely draws a positive evaluation over the next few months. He was suspended for three games this season, and more details on that incident likely will surface.

TCU staffer Sonny Dykes will likely be named SMU's next head coach, according to multiple reports.

Dykes is likely most known for his time with Cal from 2013-2016, ending his career with highly productive seasons with Jared Goff. Offense has never been an issue under Dykes, as he converted a style of the Air Raid into a scheme known as the Bear Raid. Defense, however, is a totally different story, and Dykes would be wise to add an equal to coach that side of the ball.

Kentucky received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 JUCO QB Terry Wilson.

Wilson (6'3/187) was originally a member of Oregon's 2016 recruiting class but transferred to the JUCO ranks in May. He checks into the 247Sports Composite as the No. 3 dual-threat junior college gunslinger in the 2018 class. He pledged himself to the Wildcats cause after taking an official visit to UK on Friday. This is a much-needed get for HC Mark Stoops, as Kentucky just lost four-star QB Jarren Williams to Miami.
