Ricky Town, the No. 2-ranked pocket passer in the Class of 2015, de-committed from Alabama and verbally pledged to USC.

"I'm proud to be a part of the Trojan Family!" Town said via text. "I've seen many of the top programs and what they have to offer. However, when I had the chance to get on the USC campus last week and spend time with Coach Sarkisian and his staff, I knew after those meetings that USC is where I want to be." Town began to back off his commitment after Alabama offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier bolted for Michigan. AJ McCarron's successor may be recent Florida State transfer Jacob Coker, eligible to play immediately in 2014.

Washington State QB Tyler Hilinski passed away in his apartment on Thursday, with Pullman police investigating his death as a suicide.

Hilinski was 21-years-old. As a sophomore, Hilinski played in eight games and threw for 1,176 yards with seven touchdowns and seven interceptions. The police report indicates that he was found in his apartment with a note and what is being reported as a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. The case is still being investigated.

Notre Dame dismissed four players, including junior WR Kevin Stepherson.

Stepherson has been in and out of trouble since stepping on campus, so his banishment isn't a surprise. The last straw came last month, when the Irish suspended Stepherson indefinitely following multiple arrests, including a shoplifting charge. Stepherson was also charged with marijuana possession prior to the 2016 season alongside teammates Max Redfield, Te’von Coney, Dexter Williams and Ashton White. If he can get his head screwed on straight, Stepherson could help most any team in the country. The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder had 19 catches for 359 yards and five touchdowns in 2017 despite missing a total of five games due to suspension.

Arizona State redshirt junior QB Brady White transferred to Memphis as a graduate.

Because White (6'2/193) has already graduated, he's immediately eligible to play. Luckily for Memphis, he has two years left to play. The Tigers just lost Riley Ferguson to graduation. The pocket-passing White makes plenty of sense as his replacement -- if he can finally live up to his recruiting hype. A former top-75 overall recruit, White was unable to beat out Manny Wilkins at ASU.

USA Today's Dan Wolken reports that UNLV will hire former Florida LB coach Tim Skipper to serve as defensive coordinator.

Skipper worked as Florida running backs coach from 2015-16 before shifting over to the defensive side to work as linebackers coach for the 2017 campaign. Gators HC Dan Mullen opted not to retain him with his new staff. Prior to his time in Gainesville, Skipper put in stints with Colorado State (2012-2014) and Fresno State (2009-11). While he served as co-defensive coordinator with the Bulldogs, this defensive coordinating gig with UNLV will be his first with the full title.

Rutgers hired Los Angeles Chargers TE coach John McNulty to serve as offensive coordinator.

News of McNulty's impending hiring broke last week, with Rutgers making it official on Tuesday. His only other spot working as a coordinator at the collegiate level came with these same Scarlet Knights from 2007-08. He's spent the vast bulk of career working as an assistant in the NFL. While his extensive experience working in pro-style offenses would seem to fly in the face of the spread attack that HC Chris Ash is attempting to build in New Jersey, McNulty worked with Marcus Mariota in Tennessee (2014-15) and is not completely raw to more up-tempo spread concepts. He specifically mentioned Mariota when speaking to his offensive approach at his new job, saying, "I think it will be a good mix of what we did with the Chargers, a version of that and some things I did in Tennessee with Marcus Mariota as a rookie. I got to study that system extensively out in Oregon and it will also lean towards accentuating the positives of our personnel."

Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman reports that Washington has promoted co-DC/DB coach Jimmy Lake to defensive coordinator.

Lake will take over defensive coordinating and play-calling duties from Pete Kwiatkowski, who remains on staff. He's served as co-defensive coordinator each of the past two seasons and has been with the program since 2014. We don't see this move shifting things considerably for better or worse. Washington played fantastic defense under Kwiatkowski and should continue to do so under Lake. He'll be out DT Vita Vea (lost to the draft), but received good news earlier this winter with announcements of return to Seattle for both DT Greg Gaines and S Jojo McIntosh.

Kentucky senior QB Stephen Johnson will not pursue a football future in any capacity.

Johnson (6'2/183) was already set to move on via graduation, but he will not be looking into the NFL or any other professional football avenue for his future. Explained the Wildcats gunslinger, "I really don’t have the fire or desire or drive to keep on playing it." It doesn't help matters that he is set to undergo surgeries on both shoulders as well as his left knee. Johnson finishes his career with the program having throw for 4,342 yards with a 23/12 TD/INT ratio. He also rushed for 702 yards combined in 2016 and 2017. Just where Kentucky turns at quarterback for the 2018 season is currently unclear. Johnson's backup, Drew Barker, has already announced his intention to transfer.

Rivals' Nate Clouse reports that Nebraska freshman WR Keyshawn Johnson Jr. will transfer to Arizona.

Not quite Christian Kirk, here, but new Wildcats HC Kevin Sumlin receives an almost immediate gift after taking over as head honcho over the weekend. Johnson (6'1/195) was a four-star recruit coming out of high school and enrolled at Nebraska last spring. From that point on, matters unraveled. He was cited for marijuana possession in early June and subsequently left the team to work on his maturity. While there was consistent talk, both from player and team, that there was a good chance he would be able to return to the Huskers at some point after the end of the 2017 regular season, Johnson scuttled all that by announcing his transfer intention in mid-December. Because Johnson did not play for Nebraska during his freshman year, he should be eligible to play immediately for Sumlin come the start of the 2018 season.

Stanford redshirt junior RB Bryce Love will return to school for his final season of eligibility.

Love's production in 2017 was absolutely ridiculous, recording 2,118 yards and 19 touchdowns after picking up for the departed Christian McCaffrey. His rate of producing 20-plus yard runs, behind an outstanding offensive line, seemed otherworldly. We all will get to see another year of it. The 2018 running back class still looks great.

The Tuscaloosa News reports that former Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze is meeting to discuss the opening for offensive coordinator at Alabama.

Freeze would replace Brian Daboll, who is leaving to become the offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills in the NFL. Freeze was essentially forced out from Ole Miss unceremoniously after the discovery that he made a call to an escort service from a university-issued phone. He has a combined record of 49-28 over his seven seasons with Ole Miss and Arkansas State. If hired, Freeze would also be the fourth offensive coordinator for the Crimson Tide in the last two years.

According to his personal Twitter account, former Oregon and Texas A&M junior WR Kirk Merritt will transfer to Arkansas State.

Merritt spent last year at East Mississippi CC, better known as the former "Last Chance U." In terms of talent, he's a big acquisition for the Red Wolves. That sentence comes with a big caveat: Merritt is mired with off-field concerns. He was dismissed last May from A&M after troubling charges surfaced of indecent exposure. The 5-foot-11, 205-pounder is the No. 34 JUCO prospect in the country, per the 247 Composite. He's a true burner.
