Walter Football's Charlie Campbell reports that UCLA junior QB Josh Rosen is expected to forego his final year of eligibility to declare for the NFL Draft.

No real surprise, here. Assuming Rosen does declare (it would be a stunner if he does not), he will be in play to be the first quarterback selected -- and perhaps the first player selected, period -- come the spring draft. There's no disputing his obvious physical talents (he has the arm to make any throw), but character concerns and questions of demeanor are frequent demerits that we've heard regarding the junior. Campbell notes that "[t]here has been talk in the scouting community about Rosen having bad intangibles and being disliked by his teammates at UCLA, especially during his early time with the Bruins." The analyst does soften that a bit in passing along that Rosen has been trying to make strides in the locker room. While these character questions are almost certainly going to linger throughout the evaluating process, it is unlikely that they cause him to take a significant tumble. His upside is just too great.

In the latest release of the College Football Playoff rankings, Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Michigan slotted in at Nos. 1-4.

Those same four teams in that order paced the Playoff rankings in last week's incarnation. In fact, the rankings were without any movement at all in the top 10. Following up the above quartet (in order) are Georgia, Oklahoma, LSU, Washington State, West Virginia and Ohio State. We might not see much movement in next week's rankings, either, at least barring a Syracuse upset of Notre Dame, but after Thanksgiving, things will be different -- among the games scheduled for the final weekend of the regular season, Alabama-Auburn, Michigan-Ohio State, Washington State-Washington and Oklahoma-West Virginia.

Appalachian State redshirt senior RB Jalin Moore (ankle) has accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Moore (5'11/205) was lost for the season due to a fractured, dislocated ankle sustained against Arkansas State in mid-October. He subsequently underwent surgery and was facing an initial 8-12 recovery timetable, so on the shorter side of that, he would likely be able to play in the Senior Bowl come the end of January. Moore's career at Appalachian State was a prolific one which saw him top 1,000 yards rushing in two seasons of his four active seasons. For NFL purposes, he will be fighting it out for a Day 3 selection come the spring. Medical checks will be of the utmost importance once the predraft process gets underway this winter.

LSU received a verbal commitment from five-star 2019 RB John Emery.

Emery (6'0/200) was committed to Georgia for a four-month stretch before reopening his recruitment in late October. This is a clutch pledge for Tigers HC Ed Orgeron and staff, as the 247Sports composite ranks the Destrehan, Louisiana, native as the No. 21 overall prospect -- and No. 2 running back -- in the 2019 class. LSU is very much stocking up at the position, having long ago picked up a commitment from four-star RB Tyrion Davis.

Virginia Tech redshirt junior DE Houshun Gaines will miss the remainder of the season due to a torn ACL.

Gaines (6'3/235) tore his ACL in Saturday's loss to Pittsburgh. He won't play against Miami or Virginia to close out the regular season, nor would he be available for bowl work if the 4-5 Hokies can sneak into postseason proceedings over the next two weeks. The redshirt junior ends his 2018 season having recorded 22 tackles (5.0 for loss), 4.5 sacks and a fumble forced across nine games played. While HC Justin Fuente expressed optimism that Gaines will be back in full-force next season, whether that would be at the collegiate or pro level is an open question. Gaines is eligible to declare for the draft this winter. He should be considered a borderline Day 2 prospect.

Oregon senior WR Tabari Hines will take a redshirt for the season and transfer.

Hines (5'10/170) is on the move once more. He first transferred over from Wake Forest to oregon during the offseason. The wideout has not traveled with the Ducks for any of their last three games and ends his short tenure in Eugene having caught three passes for 32 yards and a touchdown. He will redshirt for this year and be eligible to play immediately at his new home-to-be come the start of the 2019 season.

Minnesota HC P.J. Fleck said that senior RB Shannon Brooks (knee) faces a "lengthy" recovery.

Brooks (6'0/215) has already been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign due to a right knee injury sustained against Indiana on Oct. 27. He underwent surgery to repair the injury last week. The senior will be taking a redshirt for the current campaign, which will allow him to return for his final season of eligibility in Minneapolis next year. Mohamed Ibrahim will see the bulk of work against Northwestern and Wisconsin to wrap up the regular season.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said that the university is considering legal action against Stadium reporter Brett McMurphy.

McMurphy reported on Tuesday that the precipitating incident that led to the transfer of OSU WR Trevon Grimes was an exchange with former WR coach Zach Smith in September of 2017 in which Smith allegedly used racial epithets. This was told to McMurphy by Grimes' father. The wideout transferred to Florida last winter. Meyer is being accused of helping to cover up all of this reported ugliness. He responded to that accusation on Tuesday, calling it, "the most preposterous thing I've ever heard" and then passing along the kicker -- that Ohio State was exploring legal avenues in which to possibly go after McMurphy. If you'll recall, it was also McMurphy's reporting which in part opened the door for Meyer's three-game suspension to open the season.

Colorado AD Rick George said that no decision has been made as of yet regarding the future of HC Mike MacIntyre.

A report from an ABC affiliate in Denvers surfaced on Monday which had MacIntyre facing the axe at the end of the season. At least for now, George is not publicly committing to the coach's termination. Said the AD, "We do comment on speculation or unsubstantiated rumors with anonymous sources. Let me just say I have made no decisions regarding the future of our football program." MacIntyre would be owed a buyout of $10-plus million if he is fired without cause. The Buffs are currently in the midst of a five-game losing streak, with one of those losses coming in spectacularly implosive fashion against Oregon State after CU had worked out to a 31-3 lead. Colorado will finish out the campaign with contests against Utah and Cal. Stay tuned.

Western Kentucky HC Mike Sanford's future at the school "hinges largely on the outcomes of his team’s final two games," according to the Bowling Green Daily News.

The report goes on to state that Sanford will likely be retained if the Hilltoppers (1-9 overall, 0-6 Conference USA) win each of their last two games, a home date with UTEP and a road trip to Louisiana Tech. "On the other hand, WKU is expected to fire the second-year coach following the season should his team lose both and finish 1-11," it continues. "Sanford’s future if the Hilltoppers split those two contests is unclear." Sanford's tenure has been a disaster. He's 7-16 through 23 games and has in two short years managed to halt in its tracks all the momentum Jeff Brohm had built. WKU would owe Sanford a $1.2 million buyout if he’s fired after the season.

Maryland redshirt sophomore QB Tyrrell Pigrome will take over as starter following the news of Kasim Hill's season-ending ACL injury.

Pigrome actually beat out Hill (and Max Bortenschlager and Caleb Henderson) in August 2017 for the starting job last season. But Pigrome tore his ACL in the opener, an upset win over Texas, and missed the rest of the season. This summer, Hill returned the favor and bested Pigrome for the starting job. Now, Pigrome will get another opportunity. Once the Gatorade Alabama High School Player of the Year, Pigrome has thrown for only 692 yards with a 5/4 TD/INT ratio in 114 attempts sprinkled over the past three years.

Maryland HC Matt Canada confirmed that sophomore QB Kasim Hill tore his left ACL and will miss the remainder of the season.

Hill (6'2/234) missed most of last season after tearing his right ACL. Another long rehab process is coming and it would be a surprise if Hill was healthy enough to take snaps in September next year. He finishes this season with 1,083 passing yards and a 9/4 TD/INT ratio on 49.4% completions. Tyrrell Pigrome will take over under center.
