NFL.com writer and Sirius XM host Gil Brandt predicted Chicago will host the 2015 NFL Draft.

"If I were an oddsmaker, I would say Chicago is where it’ll be," Brandt said. "Next week, there will be a group of people that are gonna be associated with making recommendations to the commissioner." Brandt has plenty of ties to the offseason event, specifically regarding which prospects are invited to attend the draft each year.

Despite Ole Miss' self-imposed bowl ban due to NCAA rules violations, sophomore QB Shea Patterson does not plan on transferring.

It hasn't been the best week for the Rebels, as the NCAA hit them with eight additional violations on top of the 13 that were already being levied against them. The program self-imposed a bowl ban for 2017. However, Patterson's decision not jump from the currently burning, sinking ship is at least one cause for a sigh of relief in Oxford. "I love my school, coaches, teammates and our fans and I can't wait for the 2017 season together! Let's go!" wrote the 6-foot-2, 193-pounder on Twitter. Patterson, a five-star recruit in the 2016 cycle, started three games last season. He threw for at least 300 yards in two of them and posted a 6/3 TD/INT ratio in that space. If Ole Miss is to have any chance of extricating themselves from this mess in the near future, Patterson figures to be a key piece of the puzzle.

Miami received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 QB Artur Sitkowski.

LSU, Wisconsin, Temple and Florida State were also among those eyeing Sitkowski before he opted to join HC Mark Richt at Miami. The 6-foot-4, 208-pounder currently plies his trade with the high school football factory that is IMG Academy down in Florida. Brian Dohn of Scout.com loves his deep ball and his feel for the pocket. Scout ranks him as their No. 75 overall prospect in the 2018 cycle. Rivals is even higher on the gunslinger, slotting him into their master list at No. 61 overall. The Canes are in the young process of building a monster class right now.

Arizona hired Central Michigan AD Dave Heeke to serve in the same capacity.

Heeke fills the void left behind when Greg Byrne flew the coop to become Alabama's athletic director earlier this offseason. He had been with Central Michigan since 2006. Prior to that stint with the Chippewas, he spent 18 years in various capacities at Oregon. In a statement, Heeke said, "This program is about excellence and we will continue to focus on achieving at the very highest level athletically and academically, while creating the finest experience in the country for our student-athletes."

Florida State four-star 2018 verbal ATH commit Justin Watkins flipped to Texas.

Watkins is Texas' first commitment of the 2018 cycle. He flipped from his FSU pledge following his visit to Austin for junior day on Saturday. The 6-foot, 160-pounder ranks as Rivals' No. 74 overall prospect. Over at Scout.com, the analysis team notes that he possesses "the capabilities to take it to the house each time he touches the ball, and flashes outstanding vision and cutback ability when navigating in the open field as well." Just what position Watkins will play with the Longhorns is not yet known. He could potentially suit up at corner, wideout or running back. On top of all of that, the dynamic athlete excels in the return game, too.

The Tulsa World's Bill Heistan reports that former Notre Dame DC Brian VanGorder has been hired by Oklahoma State to serve in the role of defensive analyst.

Notre Dame has gone through a massive staff overhaul under HC Brian Kelly since the start of the 2016 season. While many of those coaching moves were made in the offseason, VanGorder wasn't so lucky. After the Irish limped out to a 1-3 start in which they coughed up 134 total points, VanGorder was canned. He finished out the campaign as a defensive analyst at Georgia. The fall from Notre Dame defensive coordinator to Oklahoma State defensive analyst is a pretty massive one, but Stillwater could serve as a nice landing spot in which VanGorder can recuperate from his traumatically truncated 2016.

USC four-star 2018 verbal WR commit Manuel Allen has reopened his recruitment.

Manuel announced his decommitment via a very, very short statement on Twitter. He had initially opted in with HC Clay Helton and the Trojans at the beginning of January. The 6-foot-1, 170-pounder ranks as Rivals No. 139 overall prospect in the 2018 cycle. ESPN's Gerry Hamilton viewed this as a near-lock for the Trojans, but every now and then the key slips from the hand.

UMass hired Western Michigan DC Ed Pinkham to serve in the same capacity.

Pinkham had served as WMU's defensive coordinator for the last three seasons. He worked with Minutemen HC Mark Whipple during the late 80's, when the two coached at New Hampshire. Now at UMass, he steps in for Tom Masella, who was fired at the end of the season. In a statement, Whipple said, "He’s an outstanding recruiter and great leader of young men. I couldn’t be more excited about the future of our program as we head into winter conditioning and spring practice."

Michigan State graduate OLB Jon Reschke will transfer.

This isn't exactly a normal transfer. In a lengthy statement, Reschke explained that he would be leaving the Spartans due to an "insensitive and totally regrettable" comment made regarding a former teammate about a month ago. An ankle injury limited him to just two games played last season, but in 2015, the 6-foot-2, 227-pounder started all 14 contests and recorded 75 tackles (5.5 for loss) and a pair of sacks. He was a likely starter for 2017 prior to his transfer announcement.

Oklahoma redshirt senior QB Baker Mayfield was arrested in Arkansas and charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and fleeing early on Saturday morning.

Per a police report obtained by ESPN, an officer was flagged down regarding an assault and battery accusation at around 2:30 a.m. Mayfield was on the scene and said that he was trying to break up the altercation. He was told to stay (in order to take a statement), at which point he began to yell profanities. When Mayfield was asked to come over to give the statement, he began to walk away, then began to sprint away before the officer tackled him. Mayfield was reportedly showing difficulty in walking down stairs, had slurred speech and his clothing was covered in food. The star quarterback was eventually handcuffed. He is set to appear in court on April 7. In a statement, Oklahoma said, "We are aware of the matter and are learning the details." This past season, Mayfield threw for 3,965 yards and posted a 40/8 TD/INT ratio.

In an interview on WSNP 105.5 FM, former Cincinnati HC Tommy Tuberville indicated that he has no plans to coach in the near future.

Tuberville, 62, stepped down as Cincinnati's head coach in December. He is seriously considering a run at the Alabama governor-ship. "I’ve been there done that for many many years in college football. I don’t know what I’m going to do. Talking about this governor thing, I’m kind of testing the wind," Tuberville said, adding that he "want[s] to do a little something different." He didn't rule out possibly coaching again down the road, but that a return to the collegiate ranks doesn't appear to be on his radar right now.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein said on the NFL Fantasy Live podcast that LSU RB Leonard Fournette is in the same class of back as Bo Jackson, Herschel Walker and Eric Dickerson in terms of size and speed.

"We're talking about elite size and speed. When I say elite size and speed, I'm saying Bo Jackson, Herschel Walker, I guess you could say Eric Dickerson, really, because he was bigger than people think, and he was definitely fast," Zierlein said. All of this being said, though, the analyst actually views FSU's Dalvin Cook as the better all-around NFL prospect. Pro Football Focus has likened the 6-foot-1, 230-pound Fournette to Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley. His medical check-ups at the Combine are going to be of some interest, as it was reported during the season that the nagging ankle injury which bothered Fournette in 2016 was a chronic issue.
