NFL Films' Greg Cosell called Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel a "see it, throw it passer" and that he is not an anticipation thrower.

"He's not a patient pocket player, if he does not see it right away, he will be gone," Cosell said during an interview. "Then you have to decide if these crazy improvisational plays, which he is obviously exceptional at, you have to decide how many of those he can make in the NFL." Throwing with anticipation is a must in order for an NFL quarterback to sustain success. Cosell notes there is a wide variation in his play. Our own Josh Norris believes Manziel's pocket movement is his gift and his curse.

Notre Dame senior LB Te'Von Coney was sentenced to a year of probation for his 2016 arrest on a marijuana possession charge.

Coney (6'1/240) was arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession along with three other former Notre Dame players in August of 2016 after the quartet was pulled over during a traffic stop. While none of the other players (Kevin Stepherson, Max Redfield, Ashton Young) in question remain on the team, Coney's made it through the fire and looks like he'll be ready to rock and/or roll this coming season now that his legal troubles have been concluded. He was a standout performer for the Irish last year, recording 116 tackles (13.0 for loss). Coney kicked around a potential NFL Draft declaration this past winter before ultimately deciding to give it one more go in South Bend.

Oklahoma extended HC Lincoln Riley's contract through January 31, 2023.

Just a little one-year extension on Riley's contract, here. No need for anything longer at this juncture given that he's only one year into his career as head coach in Norman. More substantively, it looks like Riley will also be netting a raise of more than $1.7 million. He made $3.1 million (discounting bonuses and incentives) last season and is now set to make $4.8 million in 2018, with $100,000 raises set to kick in each year through to the end of the deal. In his first season at the OU helm taking over for Bob Stoops, Riley's Sooners made a run to the Playoff before falling short against Georgia in a classic Rose Bowl semifinal showdown.

Baylor redshirt senior RB Terence Williams transferred to Houston as a graduate.

Reports of Williams' impending transfer from the Bears to the Cougars broke in early June. The move went off without a hitch and Houston officially announced it on Tuesday. While the 6-foot-2, 225-pounder managed a mere 255 yards rushing this past season, at least some of that diluted production was due to a spring shoulder injury which cost him the early portion of the campaign. His output in 2016 is more indicative of what the H-Town faithful can hope on if everything comes together this year. During that season, he logged 1,048 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. He and Mulbah Car will be duking it out for starting honors come the start of August camp.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Virginia Tech redshirt sophomore QB Joshua Jackson is no longer facing a potential academic hurdle to eligibility.

Per both David Teel of the Daily Press and Andy Bitter of the Roanoke Times, Jackson's academic issue has been "resolved" and he's currently a member of the team. Word surfaced in early June that he was dealing with a classroom concern, one which could have potentially kept him out of action this fall. With that apparently squared away, he should be good to go for summer workouts and August camp beyond. Jackson is looking to retain his starting role after throwing for 2,991 yards (59.6% completions) with a 20/9 TD/INT ratio this past season. He added 274 yards rushing on top of that. Hendon Hooker and Ryan Willis figure to push him in camp as best they can, but this is Jackson's job until he stumbles.

NFL Draft Scout Senior Analyst Rob Rang reports that teams were informed that Mississippi State redshirt junior S Brandon Bryant is officially eligible for the supplemental draft.

Bryant (5'11/205) joins Virginia Tech corner Adonis Alexander and Western Michigan corner Sam Beal as eligible players for the draft, which will take play on July 11. Bryant had academic and off-field issues at Mississippi State, and was not practicing this spring. He offers tremendous athleticism, however, with upper-echelon speed and the ability to deadlift 600 pounds. Rang calls this the most talented supplemental class in years, and it wouldn't be surprising to see all three defenders drafted.

Alabama received a verbal commitment for four-star 2019 DL Justin Eboigbe.

Eboigbe is another big get for the Alabama class, as he ranks 10th among strong-side defensive ends in the class and 12th among all players in the loaded state of Georgia. He was also considering Georgia; along with Auburn, Florida, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and several other high-profile schools. At 6-foot-5, 263-pounds, Eboigble is a defender who could help on the inside or outside, and he should be able to play the run and help as a pass-rusher. Alabama had the top class before the Eboigbe commitment, and this certainly doesn't hurt their ranking.

Georgia received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 T Xavier Truss.

This might be considered a bit of an upset, as several recruiting analysts believed that Truss would end up at Penn State. He was also considering Clemson, Auburn, Michigan and Ohio State, among others. The 6-foot-7, 325-pound tackle is ranked the 15th best player at the position by 247 Sports composite rankings, and the top player in the state of Rhode Island. With that size and reported strength, he could be a candidate to play relatively early for the Bulldogs.

Texas Tech received a verbal commitment from three-star 2019 T Trevor Roberson.

There's a very good chance that Roberson is bigger than you. Assuming you're not 6-foot-11, 355-pounds like Roberson is listed at. This is an absolutely mammoth human being, and he just completed his junior year of high school, so he could get even bigger. He also had offers from schools like Arkansas, Notre Dame and Texas A&M -- just to name a select few -- so it's also a figurative big get for the Red Raiders, in addition to being a literal one.

Former Oregon LB Fotu Leiato was killed in a car accident near Autzen Stadium early on Friday morning.

The tragedy was a single-car accident that occurred around 5:30 a.m. ET Friday. This is where the story gets strange. The driver was identified as 22-year-old Pedro Chavarin Jr. Chavarin told officers that he was alone in the vehicle and wasn't carrying any passengers. But hours after the crash, a woman walking around the area of the crash "spotted a hand and brush over a person down a gravel path." An investigation into the matter is underway. Leiato, 21, played in 38 games over the past three years for the Ducks. Leiato was a star of the spring game and was expected to compete for a starting OLB job prior to getting booted off the team in late May following his second arrest in four months. Charges from those arrests included theft, criminal trespassing, criminal mischief and misdemeanor trespassing.

Cal freshman LB Chris Fatilua suffered what was described by his family in a statement as "a significant and serious spinal cord injury" from an accident on Monday afternoon in San Diego.

The family’s statement added that "his long-term prognosis is unknown at this time." No further details were provided. In a statement of his own, Cal HC Justin Wilcox said "the most important thing to focus on right now and in the immediate future is Chris’ recovery." Fatilua was a three-star signee from this past recruiting class.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Kyler Murray's finalized contract with the Oakland A's includes language that allows him to play football in 2018 before he must turn his attention to baseball full-time.

Good news, bad news for the Sooners. The good news -- the glorious news -- is that Murray is locked in to play quarterback for the Sooners next fall. He'll almost assuredly take over Baker Mayfield's old post. The bad news is that Oklahoma will not be able to cash in on his redshirt senior campaign in 2019. As part of the deal, Murray has agreed to forego his final collegiate season of eligibility. Murray is expected to play out the football season and then turn his attention full-time to baseball, reporting to 2019 spring training with Oakland. The ninth overall pick in the MLB Draft earlier this month, Murray signed for about $4.6 million. The deal includes an insurance policy in the event that Murray suffers a severe injury playing football this season.
