UCF's Blake Bortles "possesses all of the traits teams look for in a franchise quarterback" and "has the highest ceiling of any QB in this draft," believes Greg A. Bedard of Monday Morning Quarterback.

"But he’s just not ready yet," Bedard wrote, pining for a perfect world where Bortles returned to school and smoothed out the rough edges in his game. According to the analyst, Bortles has every physical attribute needed to succeed and also possesses "off the charts" intangibles. That being said, Bedard believes Bortles has "extremely flawed" mechanics and "an inconsistent delivery". Because of these problems, his passes can lose zip and he's prone to underthrows. Bortles also "has sloppy footwork even in a clean pocket" and "will stare down receivers." Bedard compares the Golden Knight to the 49ers' Colin Kaepernick without the big-time wheels.

ESPN's Gerry Hamilton hears that Baylor four-star 2016 T Patrick Hudson will not enroll in classes on Monday.

According to Hamilton, Hudson is considering his options and would like to see how the situation at Baylor plays out over the coming weeks in the wake of HC Art Briles' firing. If he jumps ship, that would be a huge loss for the Bears. The 6-foot-5, 330-pounder was their crown jewel recruit for 2016 and ranked as ESPN 300's No. 56 overall player for the cycle. At least three Baylor signees in this most recent class have told ESPN that they are seeking releases from their letters of intent.

Baylor redshirt senior QB Seth Russell wrote on Instagram that "[a]lthough I was in a different hemisphere, the heartache was still immensely present [after HC Art Briles' firing]."

Russell addressed Briles' firing, but only in generality. "My prayers for Baylor University are that we never forget that we need God as desperately on our best days as we do on our worst," Russell wrote. "We will overcome. We will become stronger. We will be who God has allowed us to be." At the time of Briles' firing on Thursday, Russell was in South America doing missionary work along with over 30 other Baylor student-athletes.

ESPN's Max Olson reports that Baylor four-star 2016 RB Kameron Martin has asked for a release from his letter of intent.

Per Olson, Martin does not plan on enrolling with the rest of Baylor's 2016 class next week, with HC Art Briles' firing serving as the catalyst. The 5-foot-10, 175-pounder initially committed to the Bears all the way back in the summer of 2014 and signed a national letter of intent in February. Also included in Olson's report, a note that Martin communicated with Baylor's staff on Friday and that they encouraged him to do what was in his best interest.

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon wrote that he will remain with the program.

On Friday night, Cannon tweeted (in all-caps), "Baylor is my home and that['s] where I will stay and finish my college career." With Corey Coleman heading to the Browns in the draft, the 5-foot-11, 170-pound Cannon is in line to be the Bears' No. 1 receiver for 2016. He piled up 868 yards and six touchdowns on 50 catches last season. Several recruits have backed off their commitments to Baylor since the firing of HC Art Briles on Thursday, but those in the program are showing no signs of wanting to flee.

Urich announced his decision during a ceremony at Wren High School in Piedmont, South Carolina. The 6-foot-3, 186-pound dual-threat gunslinger explained that his connection with the Gamecock coaching staff played a huge part in his commitment. "I'd say just the coaches, Coach Roper, Coach Muschamp, feeling comfortable with them. They're just an awesome staff that I'm comfortable with." He stands as South Carolina's ninth commitment for the 2017 cycle and their first of the quarterback species.

A proposed Big 12 rule change could restore the year of eligibility Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield lost when he transferred from Texas Tech.

A Big 12 official told ESPN that the proposed rule change wouldn't dock walk-ons transferring within the conference a season of eligibility. Mayfield, of course, lost a season of eligibility after transferring from Texas Tech (where he walked on) following his freshman year. The conference will discuss the proposal next week at the Big 12's annual spring meetings. If it passes, Mayfield will be eligible in 2017. If it doesn't, he's entering his final season as a Sooner. Mayfield was the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year and finished fourth in the Heisman voting in 2015 (3,700 yards with a 36/7 TD/INT ratio).

CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd reports that Baylor, embroiled in a sexual assault scandal, hired a powerful law firm "in part as a hedge against a repeat of the NCAA's controversial penalties applied to Penn State."

Per Dodd's sources, neither the NCAA nor the law firm believe Baylor committed "traditional NCAA infractions." Instead, the school is concerned that the NCAA may attempt to make a P.R. stance in punitively punishing Baylor outside its bylaws, as happened to Penn State following the Jerry Sandusky criminal case. On Thursday, Baylor released an independent report that concluded football personnel ignored sexual assault allegations and "discouraged complainants" from reporting them. Officially, Baylor announced it hired the law firm -- Bond, Schoeneck and King of Overland Park, Kansas, the nation's elite firm when it comes to NCAA litigation -- "to initially discuss possible NCAA infractions."

Former Baylor HC Art Briles' daughter, Staley Lebby, released a post on Facebook defending her father's integrity and calling his firing a "media witch hunt."

"This media witch hunt has been the most disturbing thing I've ever witnessed. The situation has been blown so out of proportion. Sadly," Lebby wrote, "Baylor was influenced heavily by the media and felt pressured to let him go. I guess a man that has resurrected your program and made you a top 10 program wasn't worth fighting for or defending." She praised Briles' character at length in her post and called him "one of the most giving & unselfish people I've ever been around." Baylor players voiced similar sentiments on Twitter, with senior safety Orion Stewardt saying that Briles "[t]ook a chance on a skinny ass kid wit barely any offers" and sophomore defensive tackle Andrew Morris writing simply "Injustice."
