Georgia junior DT Trenton Thompson will forego his final season of eligibility to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

A bummer for Georgia, as Thompson had hinted in early December that he might be returning to school for the 2018 season. No dice, though, no dice. The 6-foot-4, 307-pounder registered 38 tackles (3.5 for loss) during the past season while fighting through knee issues. He's a fast, deceptively agile lineman. While Thompson did not register a sack in 2017, he posted five of them for the previous campaign and has shown the ability to be a positive contributor as a pass-rusher during his career with the Dawgs. He also projects to be scheme versatile and could fit in either a 3-4 or 4-3 setup. Walter Football's Charlie Campbell stamps Thompson with a Day 2 (Rds. 2-3) grade.

UAB senior WR Xavier Ubosi caught seven passes for 227 yards and three touchdowns in Tuesday's 37-13 win over Northern Illinois in the Boca Raton Bowl.

Holy moly. Ubosi (6'3/215) streaked down the right sideline for a 70-yard touchdown catch on UAB's first play of the game and then it was off to the races. He thoroughly dominated this one, consistently getting free deep against a lost NIU secondary -- Ubosi averaged 32.4 yards per reception -- while putting up huge catch after huge catch. Touchdown grabs No. 2 and No. 3 came from 46 and 66 yards out in the second and third quarters, respectively. He wraps the 2018 season (his final season of collegiate ball) having put up a 35-837-8 receiving line across 13 games played. We'll miss his aces deep-ball game next year.

UAB redshirt freshman QB Tyler Johnston III completed 17-of-29 passes for 373 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Tuesday's 37-13 win over Northern Illinois in the Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl.

Johnston's evening started out with a 70-yard touchdown pass to Xavier Ubosi on UAB's first play of the game, and he rolled from there, connecting on a pair of touchdown passes in the second quarter before wrapping up his beautiful performance with one more scoring toss in the third quarter. The redshirt freshman drew the start in place of A.J. Erdely, who will be undergoing shoulder surgery in the coming days. Erdely is a redshirt senior and set to exit stage left. We may well see Johnston open the 2019 season as starter assuming he turns in a strong offseason. Heck of a way to go out on 2018, here.

Eastern Michigan redshirt junior DE Maxx Crosby declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Crosby (6'5/265) closed the 2018 regular season having recorded 70 tackles (19.5 for loss), 7.5 sacks an interception and four forced fumbles. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes he could crack Day 2 festivities. He forwards that the EMU standout's draft stock would be helped with a 40-yard dash run under 4.75 seconds come the spring and also notes that a palatable weight for draft purposes would be around 255 pounds.

Washington received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 LB Laiatu Latu.

Washington won out for Latu's pledge over fellow finalists USC and UCLA. The Huskies hosted him for an official visit this past weekend to help seal the deal. The 6-foot-5, 242-pounder has plenty of developmental room, as he's yet to focus on football full-time -- Latu plays rugby in the offseason. Given his relative rawness, it would not surprise if the Carmichael, California, native took a redshirt his first year in Seattle. On the 247Sports composite board, Latu ranks as the No. 133 overall prospect in the 2019 class.

Stanford received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 WR Elijah Higgins.

The Cardinal were considered a favorite to land the 6-foot-3, 215-pound Higgins in advance of the early signing period. They won out for his pledge over offers from Texas, Florida and Ohio State, among others. 247Sports analyst Barton Simmons notes that the newest Stanford commit possesses "[f]antastic ball skills and hands," as well as physicality and long-speed. The outlet's composite board ranks Higgins as the No. 97 overall prospect in the 2019 class. Simmons sees a little of former Ole Miss TE Evan Engram in his game.

TCU sophomore QB Shawn Robinson transferred to Missouri.

Robinson (6'2/228) came into the season with a fair bit of hype -- we were certainly fans of his upside -- but everything fell apart as the campaign progressed. The sophomore struggled to play any kind of consistent ball before a mid-October shoulder surgery knocked him out for the remainder of the year. Robinson finished his 2018 season having thrown for 1,326 yards (60.6-percent completions) with a 9/8 TD/INT ratio across seven games played. He also rushed for 230 yards and a trio of touchdowns. We won't see him again until 2020, as he must sit out a year to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations. With Clemson transfer Kelly Bryant set to start next year, Missouri is outwardly set up pretty well at quarterback for the next few seasons, though your mileage on a multi-year plan consisting of Kelly Bryant and Shawn Robinson is going to vary.

ESPN's Mark Schlabach reports that while Georgia freshman QB Justin Fields is exploring a potential transfer, it is not a given that he will be moving on from the program.

Fields took part in practice on Monday, with a source telling Schlabach that "[h]e's going to explore what's out there" but "might come back." Schlabach was also told that the five-star freshman is expected to be active for Georgia's Sugar Bowl matchup with Texas on Jan. 1. The 6-foot-3, 225-pound signal-caller was entered into the NCAA's transfer portal on Tuesday, allowing other programs to talk with him about a move, but it would appear that a move is not necessarily imminent. Ohio State, Florida State and Oklahoma are three programs which have been linked to Fields should a transfer ultimately be in the cards.

Notre Dame junior WR Miles Boykin submitted his name to the NFL Draft Advisory Board.

A submission for evaluation does not automatically mean a draft declaration will be forthcoming, but should be viewed as a sign that Boykin is at least considering a potential NFL jump. The 6-foot-4, 228-pound wideout made statistical noise after Notre Dame replaced QB Brandon Wimbush with Ian Book midway through the season and ultimately finished the regular season the owner of a 54-803-8 receiving line. His most obvious plus-trait for NFL purposes comes in his pro-ready size. We'll see on his athletic testing marks.

Wisconsin redshirt senior LB T.J. Edwards will play in the Pinstripe Bowl on Dec. 27.

Edwards (6'1/242) admitted that he had contemplated sitting out this showdown with Miami, but said that "it is important that I play in this game and finish this thing off right." The redshirt senior noted that it would have been a somewhat bitter, anticlimactic way for him to go out on a loss to Minnesota, sustained at the end of the regular season. Edwards finished the prebowl campaign having recorded 103 tackles (10.5 for loss), three sacks, a pair of interceptions and a pair of passes defended. He is as active a linebacker as you'll see, one with a killer nose for the ball -- the Wisconsin standout has picked off nine passes for his career. As hearty as that total may be, The Draft Network's Kyle Crabbs writes that Edwards "does not have a great deal of range" in coverage and "[i]s not going to match-up well in man to man due to athletic restrictions" once he hits the NFL in the spring.

Louisville hired North Carolina State OL coach Dwayne Leford to be the new offensive coordinator.

Ledford will work under Scott Satterfield, who replaces Bobby Petrino as head coach of the Cardinals. The former NFL center spent the last three years as the offensive line coach of the Wolf Pack, but prior to that worked with Satterfield as offensive line coach at Appalachian State. He was also an NFL center for seven seasons. Expect Louisville to be a ground-heavy team in 2019 and beyond.

Oklahoma's offensive line was given the Joe Moore Award.

The award goes to the top offensive line in the country, and it's very hard to argue that another line deserves this. It helps Oklahoma put up 49.5 points per game and average 578 yards per contest. Two of the starters -- Dru Samia and Ben Powers -- are going to be featured in the Senior Bowl, and all five of their starters have a chance to play at the next level. We're excited to see how they handle the ridiculousness that is the Alabama defense.
