NFL Network analyst Charley Casserly believes Clemson WR Mike Williams will a better pro than the Houston Texans' DeAndre Hopkins.

"Watching the two of them coming out of college, off tape, to me, Williams has better separation, the ability to beat a defender one-on-one when he has to, inside and outside on cuts," Casserly said. Obviously this is quite a statement, as Hopkins has averaged more than 1,100 yards per year over four NFL seasons. Williams (6-foot-4, 220 pounds) clocked 40-yard dashes of 4.58 and 4.56 seconds at the Tigers' pro day on Thursday. NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock called Williams "a first-round pick all day long," at the workout. There was one issue, though. "A little disappointing to me was his 10 (yard split) time, only 1.65. Laquon Treadwell of the Minnesota Vikings had the same time, that's scary," Casserly said. "He hasn't done shuttle drills. Why not? Maybe he doesn't think he does them well, and his change of direction may not be quite what we think it is. (I) love him on tape, though."

Texas junior QB Shane Buechele is scheduled to undergo surgery on Thursday to repair a minor injury suffered in the Texas Bowl against Missouri.

Per Chuck Carlton of The Dallas Morning News, the surgery will correct a "torn adductor (hip)/abdominal muscle" suffered against the Tigers. Carlton added that Buechele is expected to be ready for spring practices, which begin on March 5. At that time, he and Sam Ehlinger will continue their never-ending quarterback competition.

Nebraska QB Tanner Lee will take Mason Rudolph's spot in the Senior Bowl.

Rudolph will miss the game with a left foot sprain. Lee never played like a legitimate NFL prospect in college, but he's got size and arm strength to dream on. The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder threw for 3,143 yards and a 23/16 TD/INT rate on 57.5 percent completions last season for 4-8 Nebraska. He's been training with quarterback guru Steve Calhoun recently.

Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph will miss the Senior Bowl due to a left foot sprain.

That's the bad news. The good news is that the injury does not require surgery and will heal with rest. Despite the injury, Rudolph will attend the event for the purposes of taking measurements and conducting team interviews. It's an unfortunate turn of events for a polarizing prospect who conceivably could have shot up boards with a huge week. The 6-foot-5, 230-pounder is tremendous with the deep ball but can maddeningly struggle with accuracy to the intermediate sector of the field. Rudolph was a wildly prolific collegiate quarterback, throwing for 13,618 yards with a 92/26 TD/INT rate on 63.2 percent completions.

The Tuscaloosa News' Aaron Suttles reports that while Alabama HC Nick Saban is "pushing" for former Ole Miss HC Hugh Freeze to join his staff, there are some in the program who are not in favor of the move.

Freeze reportedly visited Alabama earlier this week, with the thought at the time being that he would be in play to serve as offensive coordinator. The coordinator gig no longer appears to be on the table -- that's said to be going to WR coach Mike Locksley -- but Saban would still like Freeze on staff in some on-field capacity. That's apparently not a consensus opinion in the program. Beyond that, Suttles is reporting that SEC commissioner Greg Sankey is not in favor of Freeze taking on an on-field position. This is a developing story and we'll pass along updates as they become available.

Hawaii redshirt senior WR Dylan Collie will transfer.

Collie (5'10/175) -- who initially inked with BYU in 2012 prior to transferring over to Hawaii following his Mormon mission -- stepped up to lead Hawaii in receptions this past season, helping to fill in the offensive void left behind after big-dog WR John Ursua was lost for the season in mid-October due to a torn ACL. He ended the campaign the owner of a 56-636-4 receiving line. Collie is on track to graduate from Hawaii in May.

College football insider Brett McMurphy reports that former Florida State CB Deion Sanders will not be joining the coaching staff at the program.

It was reported near the end of December that Sanders and FSU had mutual interest in a possible marriage on staff as defensive backs coach, with Prime stirring the pot by saying "you never know." There's been no real movement since then, at least until McMurphy's report on Wednesday. Sanders, the fifth selection in the 1989 draft, is currently serving as an analyst for the NFL Network.

Purdue redshirt senior QB David Blough (ankle) said that he hopes to be ready for spring practice.

"That's my goal in my head and I don't know what [HC Jeff Brohm] will say or what the training staff will say but my goal is to participate in spring practice," Blough said. The 6-foot-1, 202-pounder underwent season-ending surgery to repair a right ankle dislocation at the beginning of November. He'll be competing with Elijah Sindelar -- himself recovering from a torn ACL -- for starting honors this offseason. It's currently unknown just when Sindelar will be healthy enough to take part in football activities, but he's not expected for the spring.

Football Scoop reports that Alabama will promote WR coach/co-offensive coordinator Mike Locksley to offensive coordinator.

Rather than cast a net outside the program, it looks like the defending champs will be promoting from within. They're in need of a new offensive coordinator after Brian Daboll -- on staff for just the 2017 season -- took the same position with the Buffalo Bills several days ago. While OC will be a promotion for Locksley, it's a job that he should be able to handle -- he previously worked as offensive coordinator at Maryland (2012-15) and Illinois (2005-08), with head-coaching experience at New Mexico (2009-11) on top of that. His move up the ladder should play well in the locker room -- Damien Harris has already stumped for him to receive the gig -- and has the additional benefit of keeping the recruiting ship on a steady course.

ESPN's Matt Schick spoke with an NCAA official who said there is a "95-percent chance" that transfer rules will be changed to allow student-athletes to play immediately.

As the rule currently stands, only graduate transfers are eligible to play immediately with their new teams. All other student-athletes moving to a different program must sit out a season unless they are granted a waiver. A rule change on this front would likely cause a sea change for the landscape, as we would almost certainly see a considerably higher number of players on the move. Schick suggests that a "non-grad transfer window" would be helpful in keeping some control over the process. One other note on this potential rule change -- the official whom Schick spoke with said that there would likely be academic requirements for immediate transfers. None of this is up for a vote as of yet, but it's something to monitor over the offseason.

Pitt and West Virginia will square off to open the 2022 season.

The two squads have renewed the Backyard Brawl with a scheduled four-game series from 2022-25, with the first contest in the set to be played on Sep. 3, 2022. Pitt will host that contest, as they will for the 2024 contest, with West Virginia hosting the other two games. While the Panthers hold a 61-40-3 overall record in the series -- it's a series that began in 1895 -- the teams have not played each other since Nov. 25, 2011, when West Virginia emerged victorious by a 21-20 score.

FAU hired Atlanta Falcons offensive assistant Charlie Weis Jr. to serve as offensive coordinator.

Weis, 24, will take over for OC Kendal Briles, who left for the same position at Houston earlier this winter. He's the son of former Notre Dame and Kansas HC Charlie Weis and earlier worked on Alabama's staff (2015-16) as an analyst while Owls HC Lane Kiffin was with the Tide. Said Kiffin, "He's way ahead of his time in how he sees the game, his football IQ and just his overall intelligence. He's been around the game with his dad being a coach, a lot like I was when I was growing up, and has a bright future." It's difficult to project exactly what kind of offense the uber-young, unproven Weis might install with the Owls, at least at this early juncture. His father largely ran pro-style concepts, though also occasionally dabbled in the spread. This will be one to watch over the offseason as the youngster tries his coordinating hand for the first time.
