Eastern Illinois senior QB Jimmy Garoppolo will attend the East-West Shrine Game.

It is another great get for the Shrine Game, but we wouldn't be surprised if Garoppolo ultimately ends up in the Senior Bowl if another quarterback drops out. Garoppolo has a legitimate shot at a top two round selection thanks to his quick decision making, mobility, and willingness to test every level of the defense. He is the best prospect at the all star event.

Virginia Tech received a verbal commitment from four-star 2017 S Devon Hunter.

The Hokies were gunning hard for Hunter's pledge. Barring a change of heart, looks like they got their man. Said the 6-foot-1, 204-pounder, "I’ve built a great relationship with coach Scott, the safeties coach. He’s helped me through a lot of different things, showed me where I would fit in best on defense, where he sees me playing, and where I fit into the depth chart." He ranks as Rivals' No. 47 overall prospect in the 2017 class and opted to commit to Virginia Tech over Florida. During the Nike Football Ratings Championship over the summer, he clocked a 4.42-second 40-yard dash. Assuming there's a smooth transition to collegiate ball, Hunter has the requisite speed, physicality and football smarts to be an immediate contributor for the Hokies in 2017.

Auburn hired Arizona State OC Chip Lindsey to serve in the same capacity.

Lindsey replaces Rhett Lashlee, who accepted the offensive-coordinating position at UConn earlier this month. In a statement, Auburn HC Gus Malzahn said, "Chip is a man of integrity and character who will fit well within our staff. He has great knowledge and enthusiasm for the game and is a rising star in this profession." As to the last point of Malzahn's statement, Lindsey has been hot in the head-coaching rumor mill each of the past two seasons (connected with jobs to Southern Miss and Georgia State). It wouldn't be a surprise to see him land a lead position next offseason. For now, though, he will work to help Baylor transfer QB Jarrett Stidham transform a Auburn offense which often lacked passing juice under Lashlee. To whit, the Tigers ranked 112th in passing offense this past season. Lindsey previously worked with Auburn as offensive analyst during the 2013 season.

Middle Tennessee hired former Maryland DC Scott Shafer to serve in the same capacity.

Shafer has held several high-profile jobs in recent years. He served as head coach for Syracuse from 2013-2014, then linked up with Maryland as defensive coordinator in 2015. Last April, he resigned from that position, citing personal reasons. Shafer did not coach during the 2016 season. With the Blue Raiders, he steps in for the recently terminated Tyrone Nix. He vows that under his watchful eye, MTSU "will put a physical, attacking, multiple defense on the field that will excel in fundamentals and tackling."

Tennessee promoted TE coach Larry Scott to offensive coordinator.

Scott acted as Miami's interim head coach following the team's firing of Al Golden last season. In January of 2016, Tennessee brought him on to coach up the Volunteers' tight ends. He now earns himself quite the promotion, as he will take on offensive-coordinating duties in the wake of Mike DeBord's decision to scoot on over for the OC gig at Indiana. Scott's going to have his work cut out for him in his new position, as Tennessee faces a ton of offensive turnover heading into the meat of the offseason.

Notre Dame redshirt junior RB Tarean Folston declared for the NFL Draft.

Folston said in late August that 2016 would be last season at Notre Dame. Despite his down year behind sophomore Josh Adams -- 344 yards and two scores on 77 carries -- he's sticking to that plan. Folston is entering a stacked running back class, but he does have some tools. In a recent seven-round mock draft, Bleacher Report's Matt Miller projected the 5-foot-9, 214-pound Folston as a fifth-rounder. Folston, who missed essentially the entire 2015 season with a torn ACL sustained in the opener, finishes his collegiate career with 1,712 yards and 11 rushing scores on a 5.0 yard per carry average.

Michigan RB De'Veon Smith has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

The event was in need of a running back after Wayne Gallman declined the invitation. We think Elijah McGuire is the best running back at the Shrine Game, but scouts might want a further look at Smith, who is more of a pure power runner.

UCLA edge rusher Takkarist McKinley is considering shoulder surgery to repair a torn right labrum, according to Jon Ledyard.

McKinley pulled out of the Senior Bowl because of the injury. Either way, McKinley will wait to have surgery until after the NFL Combine, as he wants to put a full workout in for scouts. He played with the ailment for the last two years. Prospects like Shaq Lawson and Jason Verrett wavered on shoulder surgeries before their respective drafts as well. McKinley likely finishes the process as a first round pick, but he could have been the top edge rusher at the Senior Bowl.

In an interview with SEC Network's Paul Finebaum, ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. called LB Reuben Foster "the best inside linebacker Alabama has ever produced."

Well then. That is something. On his most recent Big Board, Kiper slots Foster in as his No. 4 overall draft prospect for 2017. He views him more favorably than he did Bama LB Reggie Ragland a year ago, writing that the 6-foot-1, 240-pound Foster "has more range, runs sideline to sideline and is a more complete player." A lock first-rounder, Foster won the Butkus Award this past season on the strength of a regular season which saw him record 94 tackles (12.0 for loss), four sacks and two passes defended.

Florida redshirt senior QB Luke Del Rio will miss spring camp after undergoing shoulder surgery.

Wednesday's procedure was to his left, non-throwing shoulder. Del Rio's absence opens the door for an intriguing two-man spring quarterback race between Feleipe Franks and Kyle Trask. The winner of that will be a legitimate contender for Del Rio's job in the summer. The 6-foot-1, 213-pound Del Rio, 5-1 as a starter this past season, completed 56.7 percent of his passes for 1,358 yards and an 8/8 TD/INT rate.

San Diego State announced a five-year contract extension for HC Rocky Long.

The 66-year-old Long is 54-26 across six seasons for the Aztecs. San Diego State has turned into one of the sport's premier Group of 5 programs under his tutelage. The school has won consecutive Mountain West titles, going 22-6 over the past two seasons.

Texas Tech junior DT Breiden Fehoko will transfer.

Fehoko was the jewel of Tech's 2015 recruiting class. He was a five-star prospect by Scout coming out of the prep ranks, and a four-star prospect by Rivals, 247sports and ESPN. Fehoko was a contributor from the day he stepped on campus. He started at defensive tackle in all 13 games of his freshman season in 2015 to earn All-Big 12 Honorable Mention. This is a huge loss for a defense that ranked dead last nationally in total defense this past season.
