The MMQB staff ranks Virginia Tech LB Tremaine Edmunds as the No. 5 overall prospect.

This places Edmunds as the top off-ball linebacker on the board, even over Georgia's Roquan Smith. Edmunds biggest selling point per the MMQB? The linebacker "can be molded into just about anything a coaching staff wants him to be," mentioning his athleticism and pass rushing ability if a team wants him to specialize in the latter. Edmunds seems to have the trajectory of a top 15 selection.

Georgia freshman TE Luke Ford was involved in a minor motorcycle accident on Thursday morning.

The incident occurred at about 10:30 AM, when Ford lost control of the motorcycle. No other parties were involved in the accident and the freshman tight end was the one who ultimately ended up reporting it to authorities. He did suffer a right foot injury and was subsequently taken into the hospital for treatment. There does not appear to be any serious health issue in play, here, and unless information surfaces to the contrary, the 6-foot-7, 247-pound true freshman should be available for Georgia's opener against Austin Peay on Sept. 1. Ford was the top tight end prospect in the country for the past cycle.

Sun Belt commissioner Karl Benson will retire when his contract runs out on June 30.

Benson said in a statement that he has "labored over this decision for several months." He will stay on for just under another calendar year before passing the torch to the Sun Belt's next overseer. He's held his current post since 2012 after earlier serving as commissioner for both the WAC (1994-2012) and MAC (1990-94). Expect word on a potential successor in the months ahead.

AL.com's Matt Zenitz reports that Alabama sophomore RB Najee Harris (foot) could miss upwards of two weeks.

Harris (6'2/230) sustained a foot injury during Saturday's scrimmage. While we still don't have the full picture in terms of the exact nature of that injury, his timetable has now come into focus courtesy of Zenitz. The locked-in Bama beat writer passes along that the sophomore back has a "good chance" to suit up against Louisville in the team's opener on Sept. 1. Damien Harris and Joshua Jacobs would handle the bulk of carries versus the Cardinal if Najee can't give it a go in just over two weeks.

The parents of deceased Maryland OL Jordan McNair have publicly stated that they do not want Maryland HC D.J. Durkin to retain his job.

"[Durkin] shouldn't be able to work with anybody else's kid. You send your kid away to college for them to be developed into young people -- and that's physically, emotionally and spiritually," Jordan's father, Martin McNair, said on 'Good Morning America.' The offensive lineman passed away from heat stroke following a May 29th workout. On the heels of a devastating ESPN report detailing a troubling culture installed in the football program last week, Durkin was placed on administrative leave while the university investigates. Maryland's board of regents is expected to convene on Friday to discuss the case.

LSU and Clemson have scheduled a home-and-home series for the 2025 and 2026 seasons.

The equivalent of the "Spider-Man staring at Spider-Man" meme, this series will pit the Tigers against the Tigers, with both games to be played in a Death Valley. It'll be Clemson playing host first, with that contest slated for Aug. 30, 2025. LSU will return the hosting favor on Sept. 5, 2026. These will be the first-ever regular season matchups between the two squads. While they have played thrice previously (LSU holds a 2-1 all-time lead), those three prior contests occurred in bowl action.

UConn redshirt junior RB Donevin O'Reilly sustained a torn ACL during Monday's practice.

Per Huskies HC Randy Edsall, O'Reilly suffered the serious knee injury while taking part in a special teams drill on Monday. It's a cruel blow for the 5-foot-9, 191-pound former walk-on, made all the more so by the fact that O'Reilly had been in line to start following Nate Hopkins' decision to leave the team earlier this month. With Edsall and staff now down two running backs, look for freshman Zavier Scott to see significant work upcoming, with sophomore Kevin Mensah also in the mix. O'Reilly is now almost certainly done for the season, barring a miraculous comeback.

Wyoming sophomore RB Trey Woods has transitioned to defensive end.

"We think he’s got great promise (at defensive end), and also I think it’s an indication of some of the depth we’ve developed at running back," said HC Craig Bohl, who noted that Woods is "about 218 pounds right now." The sophomore actually led Wyoming in rushing a year ago, when he put up 493 yards and a pair of touchdowns. However, that action came at a rough 3.47 YPC, the second-lowest mark in the FBS among qualifying backs. With Woods having switched positions, the Cowboys figure to lean all the harder on Nico Evans (expected to start) and Kellen Overstreet. Freshman Jevon Bigelow is also a name to watch, though his work will likely be coming in more of a complementary role.

Florida sophomore RB Malik Davis (knee) is expected to be healthy for the team's season-opener against Charleston Southern on Sept. 1.

Fantastic sign that Florida's already given Davis the green light for the start of the campaign at this, the midway point of August camp. The 5-foot-11, 194-pounder aced his rehabilitation this offseason after being sidelined by a season-ending knee injury last October. Davis ended up rushing for 526 yards across seven games before everything went wrong. He adds to a respectable running backs room which includes Jordan Scarlett, Lamical Perine and Adarius Lemons -- all potential positive contributors this year.

Penn State redshirt junior DE Ryan Buchholz has retired due to health concerns.

Buchholz (6'6/258) cited "years of extreme pain" and "multiple back surgeries" as impetus for his retirement. During the past campaign, the redshirt junior registered 18 tackles while appearing in 10 games (six starts). While his statistical contributions have been modest to date, his retirement does leave Penn State scrambling somewhat, as Buchholz was expected to work as starter for the coming campaign. His departure from the active roster figures to mean additional opportunities will be available for Shane Simmons and Shaka Toney as the Nittany Lions reshuffle their deck.

LSU redshirt freshman QB Lowell Narcisse will transfer.

Narcisse (6'3/224) had been in competition for starting honors with Joe Burrow, Myles Brennan and Justin McMillan this offseason. A dynamic dual-threat athlete, he was probably the most intriguing signal-caller in this bunch (though still raw on the whole). The redshirt freshman announced his transfer intent on Tuesday night. Following suit on Wednesday would be McMillan. While the sudden departure of two quarterbacks can probably best be described as disquieting, this movement essentially locks Burrow in place as starter at LSU for the coming season, barring a big late push from Brennan. As a redshirt freshman, Narcisse will be required to sit out the 2018 season with his team-to-be unless he opts for a transfer outside the FBS. LSU opens their campaign against Miami on Sept. 2.

Texas redshirt senior RB Tre Watson (knee) has been given full medical clearance.

Watson (5'10/190) had previously been working only as a limited participant in preseason camp. The Cal transfer has been rehabbing from a torn ACL which he suffered last September. Now that he's been given the medical green light to intensify his work in practice, he can begin -- in earnest -- the process of securing a sizable role with the team. He'll be competing with Toneil Carter and Daniel Young for the remainder of camp as Texas readies for its season-opener against a suddenly-embattled Maryland program.
