The Division I Transfer Working Group is considering changes to the transfer rule relating to academic benchmarks and coaching changes.

Even in the NCAA's dry-as-a-cracker press release regarding the Transfer Working Group's early proposed tinkering with the transfer rule, it was specifically stated that the group "never entertained" a rule that would allow all student athletes to transfer without having to sit out a year. Instead, as matters are progressing right now, players who hit "specific, high-achieving academic benchmarks" could potentially be allowed to transfer without sitting, same for players whose coaches leave for new jobs. Per the NCAA's release, a vote on this still-evolving proposal could take place in June.

USC HC Clay Helton told reporters that he has the support of the university and administration and expects to remain at the school.

"I have a lot of support from [athletic director] Lynn Swann," Helton said. "Lynn, every Monday, walks into my office and has given me nothing but, 'Coach, we're in this for the long haul." After punting a two-TD halftime lead against Cal on Saturday as boos reigned down at the LA Coliseum, USC is 5-5. The Trojans must beat either UCLA or Notre Dame to qualify for a bowl. Helton told USC players that he plans to be at the school for another 15 years. We'd suggest he focus on the next 15 days. If archival UCLA upsets the Trojans on Saturday, USC will be in severe danger of missing the postseason. If that happens, we'd be surprised if Helton were retained.

New Mexico State senior LB Terrill Hanks accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Hanks has flown under the radar playing for a dreadful NMSU outfit, but he's got a bright future ahead of him. The 6-foot-3, 235-pound four-year starter projects as a 4-3 OLB at the next level. "Really athletic, versatile kid," Fran Duffy tweeted. "Impressive body type. Built for today's game." What's On Draft's Mark Jarvis said the following in a scouting report (linked below): "A powerful hitter who can really lay out runners, he'll need to show better form tackling, with a growth in accuracy. Although he looked much smoother from an athletic standpoint as a junior, there is a noticeable hitch to a lot of the movements he makes."

2020 four-star JUCO edge rusher Jordan Davis verbally committed to Tennessee.

"I mean, I shocked the world with that one," Davis said. Hopefully rushing the passer comes as easily to the youngster as hyperbole. The 6-foot-5, 249-pound Davis signed with Alabama last year out of high school as a four-star recruit (the No. 108 player overall in his class, per 247Sports). But after failing to qualify academically, he enrolled at Copiah-Lincoln (Miss.) Community College this summer. Davis, from Memphis, Tenn., has now decided to commit to former Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt. Davis is on track to graduate from the JUCO ranks in December 2019, so the plan is to enroll at an FBS school in January 2020. With his signing day a year away, the Vols are far from out of the woods here.

Western Michigan redshirt junior RB LeVante Bellamy rushed for 213 yards and a touchdown on 35 carries in Tuesday's 42-41 overtime loss to Ball State.

In a fun, high-scoring bout of Tuesday MACtion, Bellamy turned in a career-best performance in which he averaged 6.1 YPC with a long run of 17 yards. Alas for the WMU faithful, his final touch of the game came when he was stuffed on a two-point conversion attempt in overtime. The Broncos could have kicked the extra point, there, to tie up the game and send it onwards to a second overtime period, but HC Tim Lester opted to go for the win instead. No such luck. Setting aside the sour end result, Bellamy has now rushed for 1,120 yards and six touchdowns across 11 games played. Western Michigan will finish up its regular-season campaign against NIU next Tuesday.

The Detroit News' Angelique Chengelis hears that Kansas is considering former UCLA OC Jedd Fisch as an option to fill its vacant head-coaching position.

Fisch was hired by UCLA to serve as offensive coordinator in the winter of 2017 after spending the previous two years as Michigan's passing-game coordinator. He bounced to the NFL following the 2017 campaign and is currently an offensive analyst with the Los Angeles Rams. His lone experience working as a head coach in any capacity came late last fall, after Jim Mora was canned. He served as interim head honcho for two games in that spot. The vast majority of Fisch's experience has come at the NFL level. Les Miles remains the name most heavily bandied about for KU's open job, but another one to keep an eye on, here.

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.
Nov 13 - 4:30 PM

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.
Nov 13 - 3:58 PM

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.
