UNC senior "bandit" LB Norkeithus Otis has "the talent to potentially fill" a "tweener" hybrid role in the NFL, according to CBS Sports' Derek Stephens.

Otis did a little bit of everything last year, collecting 49 tackles -- 13 for loss -- 7.5 sacks, nine quarterback hurries, two forced fumbles, three pass breakups and an interception. "Although he can be plugged in at multiple spots, it's Otis's natural ability as a pass-rusher that may be his greatest asset, as he demonstrates an explosive first step, active hands, agile feet to change direction and impressive closing burst once he's in the clear," Stephens wrote. "Despite being only 6'1, Otis's long arms enable him to play taller and with more range than one would expect when considering his listed size, and he understands how to employ his shorter stature to gain leverage when engaging taller opponents." Since the NFL desires faster linebackers to drop into coverage in a pass-happy era, Otis' skill set will be desired next spring.

Stanford redshirt junior QB Keller Chryst (knee) is on track to participate in most drills when the Cardinal open camp Monday.

Chryst suffered the knee injury against North Carolina in the Sun Bowl. "He's right on schedule, if not a little bit ahead," coach David Shaw said. "We're going to be smart with him in training camp, very cautious with him, but he's already doing full-speed dropbacks, he's already throwing with the guys. We'll keep him out of team stuff for a while." Chryst threw for 905 yards, 10 touchdowns and two interceptions last season. He'll compete with K.J. Costello, Ryan Burns and five-star true frosh Davis Mills for the starting gig next month. Stanford opens on Aug. 26 against Rice in Sydney, Australia.

Former Alabama redshirt junior DT O.J. Smith transferred to Minnesota.

USC dismissed redshirt senior K Matt Boermeester.

"Boermeester… won’t return because of a student code of conduct issue," the football program wrote in its preseason notes. The program indefinitely suspended Boermeester in early February, reportedly because of an incident involving the placekicker’s ex-girlfriend. Boermeester hit 75-percent of his 25 field goal attempts last year, as well as all but one of his 54 point after tries. Michael Brown will now take over at kicker.

Arkansas State redshirt senior WR/KR/PR Cameron Echols-Luper transferred to Western Kentucky as a graduate.

Echols-Luper's winding road through college hits its last stop. We think. Early in his career, Echols-Luper was an All-Big 12 honorable mention for TCU punt returner. He capped off his Horned Frogs track career with the fastest 200-meter time in the country (20.39 seconds) at the 2015 Big 12 championships. He transferred from TCU to Arkansas State and had 26 receptions for 407 yards and one TD last season after sitting out in 2015. His Red Wolves career ended abruptly when Echols-Luper was arrested and cited in March for a misdemeanor drug possession. He was suspended indefinitely, which led to his exodus from the program. The Hilltoppers have been one of the nation's most explosive aerial offenses over the past few years. They return only two players who recorded 20-plus catches last season. If Echols-Luper's head is screwed on straight, he could compete for a starting gig in the slot.

Ohio HC Frank Solich announced redshirt junior RB Maleek Irons will miss this season due to suspension.

Irons was suspended for this summer. He can return when fall semester starts, but won't play for the Bobcats this fall. If there's good news, it's that Solich has left the door open for Irons to return in 2018 if he stays out of trouble. Irons was arrested in January and charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated, resisting arrest and obstructing official business.

ESPN's Mark Schlabach reports that attorneys representing Ole Miss and its former coaches and administrators have asked that Mississippi State players Leo Lewis and Kobe Jones be required to attend the Rebels' infractions hearing.

The infractions hearing, scheduled for later this summer, will delve into whether the Rebels violated various NCAA rules. They are accused of 21 violations in sum. Jones, a four-star 2016 recruit, previously alleged that an Ole Miss booster paid him around $15,000 to sign with the Rebels. Instead, he signed with the Bulldogs. Lewis famously accused Rebels boosters and former coaches of offering transportation, lodging, food and memorabilia and clothing from a retail store in Oxford. Ole Miss, which self-imposed a bowl ban this season and stripped itself of seven scholarships, is also facing a lawsuit from former head coach Houston Nutt. Most recent HC Hugh Freeze resigned last week, but the school said that was because of his phone records (which included a call to an escort service) and not due to the NCAA's investigation.

Clemson junior DT Christian Wilkins is "large, quick and relatively athletic" and "does a lot more than occupy gaps," according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

"He explodes off the snap, manhandles blockers and makes plays in space," Pauline wrote. The analyst noted that Clemson played Wilkins out of position at defensive end in 2017, a development that "didn’t help Wilkins the NFL prospect," per Pauline," and "mirrored the woes of Malik McDowell at Michigan State." Wilkins is expected to move back inside to defensive tackle this year. "If he’s up to the challenge as I expect, then Wilkins will secure himself as a top-15 selection," Pauline wrote. Wilkins ran a 4.80 forty this spring at 6-foot-2 1/5 and 310 pounds.

Syracuse junior DT Steven Clark transferred to Western Michigan.

Clark was previously medically disqualified from Syracuse due to a genetic disorder that increases the likelihood of blood clots. While Broncos doctors need to sign off on Clark’s health for him to see the field at WMU, the Syracuse Post-Standard reported that "four independent doctors cleared Clark for physical activity — two before the disqualification and two after." Clark is seeking a waiver to play immediately for the Broncos if cleared. "The NCAA I hope would let me," Clark said previously. "I hope they'd do the right thing." If so, he'd play nose tackle in WMU's 4-3 defense. If not, he has a redshirt year to burn and could return as a fourth-year junior in 2018.

The father of former Oregon redshirt senior WR Darren Carrington II confirmed that his son will transfer to Utah as a graduate.

"We are so thankful to Coach [Kyle] Whittingham, Dr. Chris Hill-AD and the U of Utah, for providing darren with an opportunity to not only finish is college football career but also for him to be known not just for 2 bad decisions, but as a man of God," the elder Darren Carrington wrote in an email. His son, Darren Carrington II, was kicked off Oregon after being arrested on suspicion of DUI. As a grad, Carrington II is eligible to play immediately. "Special shout out to OC [Troy] Taylor for being the catalyst," Carrington added in his email. It's an interesting line, and it speaks to something Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom discussed on Tuesday when this news first broke: Carrington II is an ideal WR1 in Taylor's up-tempo, pass-happy, quick-strike offense. At Taylor's last stop, Eastern Washington, Cooper Kupp played that role.

Princeton received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 QB Brevin White.

White (6'1/163) took visits to North Carolina and Washington State this offseason, but the four-star gunslinger has opted to forego the FBS in order to try to attain Ivy League glory. Rivals ranks him as the No. 11 pro-style quarterback in the 2018 class, while Scout.com's Greg Biggins notes that he "throws a tight ball, is a smart quarterback and shows a lot of courage standing in the pocket." White is the younger brother of Arizona State QB Brady White.

Notre Dame received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 LB Shayne Simon.

Simon (6'2/195) was also considering Penn State and Michigan for his pledge. The Nittany Lions had a little momentum going as the summer progressed, but Notre Dame kept at it and ultimately landed the prize. Simon, who ranks as the No. 6 outside linebacker in the 2018 class on the 247Sports composite. Outlet analyst Steve Wiltfong writes that he "has the full tool bag and will bring a ton of versatility to ND’s defense." Wiltfong goes so far as to say that his position versatility is reminiscent of that of former Irish star Jaylon Smith.
