Despite signing RB Carlos Hyde the Browns are not out on Penn State RB Saquon Barkley, according to NFL Media's Aditi Kinkhabwala.

We think this is more about luring other teams up for a trade, as the Browns certainly won't be selecting a running back at No. 1 now. No. 4 is still possible, but expect other teams to be calling in order to land a quarterback. The Browns are likely in on Bradley Chubb and other names at No. 4 as well.

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.

Uncommitted four-star 2019 DT Siaki Ika will take an official visit to Florida, rather than Alabama, this coming weekend.

Ika (6'3/247) had initially been planning an official visit to Tuscaloosa for Iron Bowl weekend, then pushed that visit back to Dec. 15. And now the Tide have been pushed aside altogether in favor of the Gators. That Florida has gotten this far with the four-star defensive tackle is remarkable considering two factors -- Alabama has by all accounts been charging hard for his pledge, and the Gators had not even offered to him until September. Strong work being done behind the scenes by HC Dan Mullen and staff, clearly. With Alabama no longer a frontrunner for the pledge, LSU looks to have moved into the position of favorite, here. USC, Oregon and Utah are also angling for Ika's pledge. On the 247Sports composite board, the Salt Lake City native slots in as the No. 159 overall prospect in the 2019 class.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Boston College HC Steve Addazio's contract has been extended through the 2022 season.

Just a minor two-year extension, here, as Addazio's contract had previously been set to run through the 2020 season. His Boston College team turned in a 7-5 record for the 2018 regular season and will be taking on Boise State in the First Responder Bowl come Dec. 26. Addazio owns a .500 record (38-38) with the Eagles since taking over as head coach prior to the 2013 season.

UAB HC Bill Clark was named the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year.

The Eddie Robinson is awarded annually by the Football Writers Association of America to the best head coach in the country. Clark is very much deserving of the honor, having brought the formerly disbanded football program to a conference title in just two seasons. The Blazers beat out MTSU for the Conference USA Championship two weekends ago to wrap up a 10-3 regular-season campaign. They'll be tangoing with NIU in the Boca Raton Bowl next Tuesday.

LSU sophomore LB Patrick Queen said that junior LB Devin White "says he's gonna stay."

While this is an encouraging sliver of anecdotal light for the LSU faithful, Queen admitted that he did not know for sure whether White would be returning to school. The star junior linebacker, himself, has said that he is uncertain whether or not a declaration would be forthcoming. At the very least, he's muddying the water. Said the 6-foot-4, 240-pound junior, "I want everything to be done the right way, and I don’t know if I reached that limit (at LSU) yet." White was named winner of the Butkus Award last week after he posted 115 tackles (12.0 for loss), three sacks, five passes defended and two forced fumbles during the 2018 regular season. ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. ranks White as the No. 3 overall draft-eligible prospect for 2019. He will be playing in at least one more collegiate game upcoming, as the LSU standout has already confirmed that he will take the field in the Fiesta Bowl versus UCF on Jan. 1.

Football Scoop's Zach Barnett reports that Austin Peay will hire Mississippi State TE coach Mark Hudspeth to serve as head coach.

Hudspeth joined Joe Moorhead's inaugural staff at Mississippi State after he was fired from the head position at Louisiana following the 2017 campaign. The Austin Peay job came open after Will Healy jumped for the lead job at Charlotte earlier this winter. This will be Hudspeth's third career stint as a head coach. He earlier served in that capacity at North Alabama (2002-08) and, as aforementioned, Louisiana (2011-17).

North Carolina has hired Ole Miss OC Phil Longo to serve in the same capacity.

The Air Raid is coming to Raleigh, after all. A few days after reportedly trying to get Graham Harrell to come be the new offensive coordinator from North Texas, the Tar Heels instead get Longo, who helped the Rebels put up some of the better passing numbers in the SEC. Prior to joining the Rebels, he was at Sam Houston State, where he implemented the "power" Air Raid system that you'll likely see at North Carolina. This is a strong get for UNC that should help in recruiting while also helping the 2019 team put up some points.

UCLA redshirt sophomore WR Britain Covey underwent surgery to repair his torn ACL and meniscus.

Covey suffered the injury in the Pac-12 Championship Game against Washington while returning the opening kickoff of the second half. It was described as a significant injury by head coach Kyle Wittingham, and we now know how significant it was. He finished with a line of 59-611-1 over the 2018 season, but that doesn't begin to justify how big a part of the offense Covey was; he was one of the top targets on third down and also was involved in several gadget plays. He'll be out for spring practices, and there's a very good chance he might not be ready to play at the start of the 2019 season.

Houston senior QB Quinten Dormady is transferring to Central Michigan.

Because he's leaving with his degree, he'll be eligible to play immediately. It's the second transfer in as many years for Dormady, who came to Houston after leaving Tennessee this June. He appeared in just one game, completing 2-of-5 passes in a blowout victory over Arizona in the second week of the season. He should compete for the starting job, and it would make sense to make him the favorite.
Dec 11 - 10:50 AM

Memphis HC Mike Norvell tweeted that he'll remain the head coach at Memphis.

A busy day for fans of the Tigers. Norvell was considered a strong candidate for the job at Kansas State, but he tweeted that he's staying at Memphis. The Tigers did lose their offensive and defensive coordinators on Monday, but Norvell is staying on board, and that gives them a chance to remain a strong contender in the AAC.
