Oklahoma HC Lincoln Riley said that he does not believe redshirt sophomore RB Rodney Anderson will declare for the NFL Draft.

Riley said that he has not had any conversations with Anderson regarding the draft. That does not mean that the 6-foot-1, 204-pounder is a lock to return to Norman, but at the very least, it's not a topic that's been broached. The redshirt sophomore went out in high style this season, rolling for 202 yards and two scores on the ground during Monday's wild double-overtime Rose Bowl loss to Georgia. For the campaign as a whole, he rushed for 1,162 yards and 13 touchdowns, with six 100-yard efforts in his final eight games.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Texas redshirt freshman QB Casey Thompson will remain with the program.

Anwar Richardson of OrangeBloods.com was first on this one, reporting via Twitter on Friday evening that Thompson had told HC Tom Herman and staff that he planned on staying with the program. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound redshirt freshman stepped into the transfer portal earlier this month. His return is a welcome one for the program in Austin, as they have already lost two quarterbacks to transfers this offseason in Shane Buechele and Cameron Rising. With Buechele and Rising out the way, now, Sam Ehlinger will be backed up by Thompson and true frosh Roschon Johnson as offseason training gets underway.

According to Ira Schoffel of Warchant.com, Florida State sophomore QB James Blackman's name has not been entered into the NCAA transfer database.

It was reported Wednesday that Blackman (6'5/181) entered his name into the database, but as of the end of business Friday his name was not listed. If a player informs a school that he wants to be entered, the school has to honor that request within 24 hours. As noted in the report things could very well change when it comes to Blackman's status, but as of now he is not listed as available to transfer. Blackman, who started 12 games in place of the injured Deondre Francois in 2017, was able to preserve a season of eligibility in 2018 as he remained under the four-game threshold.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline tweets that Alabama T Jonah Williams is getting second-round grades by scouts.

Pauline has been pumping the brakes on top-10 talk for Williams (6'5/301) after speaking with numerous NFL scouts, and he's taken it a step further after speaking with scouts at Shrine practices. The reason why his stock is falling is due to debates whether he can play tackle or if he'll need to kick inside. Playing tackle has always been more valuable, and the NFL is reportedly 50/50 on if he can remain playing outside.

Arkansas received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 S Jalen Catalon.

Catalon had a final four of Texas, TCU, Oklahoma and Arkansas, and it's the Razorbacks who ultimately will land the signature -- assuming he hasn't signed already. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound safety is considered one of the best playmakers in the class at the free safety position, and he should have a chance to compete for immediate playing time with Arkansas. Prior to the commitment of Catalon, the Razorbacks class ranked 22nd in 247 Sports list, and that assuredly will go up with this addition.

Football Scoop reports that Joe Moglia is stepping down as HC at Coastal Carolina.

Football Scoop also reports that Coastal Carolina will promote Jamey Chadwell to be the new head coach, and Moglia will stick around the program as an administrator. The 69-year-old was in charge of bringing the Chanticleers from FCS to the Sun Belt and went 56-22 record in six seasons. He led CCU to a 5-7 record in 2018.

Redshirt freshman RB Brian Snead will not return to Ohio State.

Snead (5'11/208) was a big part of the Ohio State 2018 class, and ranked third overall at the running back position in 247 Sports composite rankings. The tailback played in the first two games of the year, but didn't appear again and was reportedly suspended for six games for violating a team rule. Assuming he transfers to an FBS program, he'll have to sit out 2020, but he'll have three more years of eligibility left. This could be a big get for another program.

Wisconsin extended the contract of HC Paul Chryst through the 2023 season.

Chryst gets the extension despite what can only be described as a disappointing season for the Badgers; going 8-5 on the year and 5-4 in conference. The overall body of work for Chryst has been solid, however, and it's reasonable to expect a bounceback season with more consistent quarterback play in 2019. Chryst has an overall record of 42-12 with Wisconsin, and he's 4-0 in bowl games.

Bruce Feldman of The Athletic reports that Indiana is hiring Fresno State OC Kalen DeBoer to serve in the same capacity.

An excellent hire -- on paper, anyway -- by the Hoosiers. Most of the credit goes to Jeff Tedford and the Fresno State defense for the Bulldogs impressive turnaround, but DeBoer has deservedly become a rising star in the coaching industry. He won three national championships as head coach at NAIA Sioux Falls from 2006-2009 with a 67-3 record, and he's had success as an OC for Southern Illinois, Eastern Michigan and Fresno State. This could be a future NCAA head coach, but first he'll test his merit against Big Ten defenses.

Auburn five-star 2019 verbal WR commit George Pickens is taking an official visit to Georgia this weekend.

Pickens (6'4/190) has been in Auburn's corner since the summer of 2017, but despite the longstanding nature of his pledge, his recruitment still has some loose ends. Georgia has charged out of the dead period with guns blazing, paying the Hoover, Alabama, native an in-home visit and now landing an official visit. Tennessee is another program to watch as National Signing Day approaches on the horizon, likewise LSU. Rivals analyst Chad Simmons goes so far as to call Pickens' sticking with Auburn a 50/50 proposition. His outlet ranks the wideout as the No. 7 overall prospect in the 2019 class.

Northern Illinois hired Baltimore Ravens RB coach Thomas Hammock to serve as head coach.

With Rod Carey leaving for the lead job at Temple earlier this month, the Huskies opted to look toward the pro ranks for their next head coach. Hammock (who played his college ball at NIU) has been working as running backs coach with the Ravens for the past five seasons. While he is not without FBS coaching experience -- he has worked as RB coach with Wisconsin (2011-13), Minnesota (2007-10) and in an earlier stint at NIU (2005-06) -- Hammock has never worked beyond his traditional position group.

Wyoming DT Youhanna Ghaifan was among the 135 early-entrant names officially released by the NFL on Friday.

The Athletic's Dane Brugler referred to Ghaifan as the lone "surprise name" on the NFL's official list. The 6-foot-4, 282-pounder's collegiate career came to an unfortunate close after he was arrested in October and charged with misdemeanor false imprisonment and harassment. In a plea deal, he copped to the harassment charge, with the false imprisonment one dropped. So long as he adheres to the agreed upon parameters of the plea deal, he will no longer be facing any charges after July 5. Obviously, this case will be one which is combed over by interested NFL parties, but on a pure talent level, Ghaifan intrigues. He was a first-team All-Mountain West performer during the 2017 season, recording 69 tackles (15.5 for loss), seven sacks and a pair of fumbles forced across 12 games played. Brugler notes that Ghaifan possesses "impressive lateral quickness, flexibility and pursuit."
