Georgia sophomore QB Jacob Eason will transfer.

Eason (6'5/235) did not specifically mention a preferred destination in his transfer tweet, but the Seattle Times' Adam Jude reported earlier this week that the Washington native would be returning to his home state to play for the Huskies. The sophomore gunslinger will have to sit out the 2018 season to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations and would have two years eligibility remaining come the start of the 2019 season. That timing works perfectly for Washington, as QB Jake Browning -- coming back for the fall -- will no longer be in the fold at that point. A former five-star recruit, Eason passed for 2,430 yards with a 16/8 TD/INT ratio as a true freshman in 2016. He began the 2017 campaign as starter, but a knee injury sustained in the season-opener forced true freshman Jake Fromm into action. Fromm proceeded to help lead the Bulldogs to the national championship game.

Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel reports that Temple is in the process of finalizing a deal with Miami DC Manny Diaz to fill their open head-coaching position.

The Owls are looking to fill the vacancy left behind by former HC Geoff Collins, who earlier accepted the lead position at Georgia Tech. Texas A&M DC Mike Elko and Michigan DC Don Brown were two other candidates who had emerged in this coaching search, but it would appear that Temple sees Diaz as their man. His defense clocked in as the No. 15 scoring defense in the country for the 2018 season. Should this deal come through with the Owls, it would represent Diaz's first shot at a head-coaching job.

Las Vegas will host the 2020 NFL Draft.

This will be the first time that Las Vegas has ever hosted the draft. It coincides with the Raiders' upcoming move to Sin City. Vegas will be the fourth different city to host the draft in as many years. This spring's draft of the 2019 rookie class will be held in Nashville.

Michigan dismissed sophomore RB O'Maury Samuels.

The Wolverines did not offer specifics as to why Samuels was being dismissed, but this would appear to stem from a Dec. 8 incident which involved the University of Michigan police. According to court records, the sophomore back is currently facing misdemeanor charges of domestic violence and malicious destruction of property. He appeared in court on Wednesday and has another appearance scheduled for Dec. 27. Samuels has not been an integral part of UM's offense since signing on with the program as a four-star recruit in the 2017 class. He took a total of 21 carries in his two years in Ann Arbor.

SMU redshirt junior QB Ben Hicks will transfer as a graduate.

Hicks (6'2/220) informed HC Sonny Dykes of his intention to transfer earlier in the week. He ends his career at SMU as the program's all-time leader in a multitude of categories, including passing yardage (9,081 yards) and passing touchdowns (71). His high-water mark at SMU came in 2017, when he threw for 3,569 yards with a 33/12 TD/INT ratio. It was something of a struggle for him in his lone year in Dykes' Air Raid, as his yardage total, YPA and touchdown tally all took notable drops off that stellar 2017 showing.

Memphis junior RB Darrell Henderson declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Henderson (5'9/200) crushed the 2018 campaign, rushing for 1,909 yards and 22 touchdowns -- the touchdown tally tied the FBS record -- while averaging a silly 8.9 YPC. He's as smooth a runner as there is in the country, though The Draft Network's Kyle Crabbs notes that Henderson "[d]oes not necessarily have an elite physical trait: is tough, but not a power back," adding that he has "some burst, but doesn’t have top shelf speed." Crabbs also wonders on Henderson's durability, as we've yet to see him take a true workhorse's carry load. He ends his Memphis career having taken just 431 carries. Of course, the positive offshoot to this is that Henderson will enter the NFL with barely any tread worn off the metaphorical tires. His draft process will be a very interesting one to watch coming off an electric season.

The Athletic's Bruce Feldman reports that Michigan DC Don Brown interviewed for the open head-coaching position at Temple on Tuesday.

The Owls were reportedly also interested in Texas A&M DC Mike Elko, but Elko now looks like he will be sticking with the Aggies for the coming campaign. Next target up, Brown, it would appear. The UM DC was a finalist for the Broyles Award this past season (an award that ultimately ended up going to Alabama OC Mike Locksley, now head coach at Maryland). He has been building elite defenses at Michigan for the past three seasons. Should Temple finalize a deal with Brown, this would not be his first go-round as a head coach, having previously held the lead position at Plymouth State (1993-95), Northeastern (2000-03) and UMass (2004-08).

Multiple outlets are reporting that Texas A&M DC Mike Elko will remain with the program after interviewing for the open head-coaching position at Temple.

Elko was hired to HC Jimbo Fisher's staff last January after spending the previous year at Notre Dame. In his first season with the program, Texas A&M finished with the nation's No. 58 scoring defense, allowing an average of 26.3 points per game. Elko was the fourth-highest paid assistant in the country in 2018, drawing $1.8 million. As for where Temple might turn for their next head coach now that Elko is out of the picture, The Athletic's Bruce Feldman reports that Michigan DC Don Brown interviewed with the Owls on Tuesday.

Minnesota senior LB Blake Cashman will not play in the Quick Lane Bowl.

Cashman (6'2/235) is the second Gopher opting to sit out, joining teammate Donnell Greene. Greene has already signed with an agent and couldn't play even if he reversed course on his decision. For his part, senior Cashman makes for a significant loss. He took a quantum leap forward in his production during his final season with the Gophers, registering 104 tackles (15.0 for loss), 2.5 sacks, five passes defended across 12 games played. Even beyond the losses of Cashman and Greene, Minnesota could be working with something of a skeleton crew come the Quick Lane Bowl against Georgia Tech, as Andy Greder of the Twin Cities Pioneer Press reported on Tuesday that a "handful" of Gophers (names have yet to come to light) were going to be suspended for the contest.

FAU junior RB Devin Singletary declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Singletary (5'9/201) has motored his way to three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons since stepping foot on campus at FAU. One of the hallmarks of his play is his ability to churn out yards after contact. For the past campaign, 1,027 of his 1,348 yards came after he was touched. The Draft Network's Kyle Crabbs is keen on Singletary's ability to fight through arm tackles and the like, as well as his patience on more slowly developing plays. Combine testing figures to be crucial for the FAU standout, with Crabbs noting that "Singletary has limited long speed" and that "top shelf athletes in the back seven should have no issues in pursuit chasing him down and limiting his long distance runs." At this juncture, Walter Football's Charlie Campbell grades Singletary as the No. 8 draft-eligible running back for 2019. Campbell sees him as worthy of a pick somewhere between Round 2 and Round 4.

Uncommitted five-star 2019 DE Zach Harrison will tweet out his pledge on the first day of the early signing window (Wednesday, Dec. 19).

We will no doubt see all kinds of weird, zany commitment announcements when the early signing window opens next Wednesday. Harrison won't have one of those up his sleeve. There will be no ceremony and he will not be taking part in interviews. Instead, just a tweet for the 6-foot-6, 240-pounder, who is deciding between Big Ten rivals Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State. Harrison simply isn't a fan of talking up his recruitment. We dig the low-key approach. That's going to be one anticipated tweet -- on the 247Sports composite board, the Lewis Center, Ohio, native lands at a lofty No. 4 in the 2019 class. His head coach at Olentangy Orange, Zebb Schroeder, told The Athletic's Ari Wasserman that Harrison has a Tim Tebow-esque leadership ability and the potential to develop into the face of a program.

The Twin Cities Pioneer Press' Andy Greder reports that a "handful" of Minnesota players will be suspended for the Quick Lane Bowl.

The identities of the players who will be suspended have not yet come to light, but Greder passes along that the punishments "[appear] to stem from an off-the-field issue" which occurred following the team's win over Wisconsin on Nov. 24. We'll pass along updates on this story as information becomes available. Minnesota will face off with Georgia Tech in the Quick Lane Bowl on Dec. 26.
