Transferring Michigan redshirt senior QB Wilton Speight was on hand to watch UCLA's practice on Thursday.

This is the second time that Speight has been on UCLA's campus to check out a practice this spring. While UM HC Jim Harbaugh said in late March that the redshirt senior was not dead-set on a transfer and was not ruling out a return to the Wolverines, Mike Sullivan of the Valenti Show on 97.1 The Ticket in Michigan took to Twitter on Thursday to write that he's hearing that Speight is as good as gone and will be transferring to one of Wyoming or UCLA. Michigan's best shot at keeping Speight would come if the NCAA ruled against Shea Patterson's waiver request for immediate eligibility during the coming season. We don't see the governing body opposing that request.

Former Ball State redshirt junior QB Riley Neal is transferring to Vanderbilt.

Neal (6'6/225) will be eligible immediately -- he is a graduate transfer -- and should be at least in the running for the starting spot in 2019 with Kyle Shurmur graduating. At Ball State, Neal had his struggles, but he does enter the university with 34 games of experience. As a junior in 2018, Neal completed just 57.9 percent of his passes while averaging only 5.7 yards per pass attempt and 1.8 total touchdowns per game. Perhaps elevated talent and a new system will lead to a better statistical season in 2019.

USA Today's Dan Wolken notes the foundation for Justin Fields' potential appeal for 2019 eligibility "could be" based around the racist remarks made by a Georgia student-athlete towards Fields.

Fields will have to build a case to win his appeal for 2019 eligibility if he ultimately decides to transfer, and basing it around the racist comments made by dismissed Georgia baseball player Adam Sasser would certainly be a strong case. In fact, Wolken believes it would be a strong enough case to win his appeal given how lenient the NCAA has been on waivers recently. We are still multiple steps away from all of this speculation -- Fields still hasn't told Georgia he is transferring -- but Fields could end up starting at Ohio State, Oklahoma, Florida State, or other universities as soon as 2019 if everything breaks his way.

Georgia freshman QB Justin Fields is considering Florida State, Ohio State, and Oklahoma as transfer destinations.

Fields still hasn't told the Bulldogs that he's transferring, and he was practicing on Monday in anticipation of the Sugar Bowl -- a game Fields plans on playing in. ESPN's Mark Schlabach reports that Fields "might come back" but he's at least "going to explore what's out there." Schlabach also mentions FSU, OSU, and OU as top options for the 2018 No. 2 overall recruit. All three are obvious fits, but the hurdle is becoming eligible for the 2019 season. Fields will need to win an appeal for eligibility or he'll be forced to miss next season. If Fields confirms that he's transferring, he either knows he will win the appeal or really wants a fresh start at a new program.

According to a USA Today report, freshman QB Justin Fields has told Georgia that he intends to transfer.

Georgia hasn't acknowledged the report yet, but this will be huge news if true (and there's no reason to believe it's not right now). Fields is likely frustrated playing limited snaps behind Jake Fromm, and that's understandable considering he was the No. 2 recruit in the 2018 class. In limited playing time, Fields completed 27-of-39 passes for 328 yards (8.4 YPA) and four touchdowns, but he also flashed incredible athletic ability as a rusher by averaging 6.3 yards per carry on 42 rushing attempts. Fields has plans to appeal to the NCAA to be eligible this upcoming season, which would give him a path to playing time in 2019 and that's something he doesn't have at Georgia with Fromm returning for his junior season. Fields will be the most coveted transfer in the country.

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love will not play in the Sun Bowl.

Love (5'10/202) will instead focus on the NFL Draft, and it's without a doubt the correct decision for him. So much of Love's draft grade will be injury related and risking further damage in the bowl game would be a potential detriment to his draft stock. Love has shown a ton of explosion at times -- he averaged 8.1 YPC on 263 attempts in 2017 -- but that was stolen from him this year while playing on a bummed ankle. The Draft Network's Benjamin Solak notes that Love is being viewed as a Day 3 selection at the moment, but Love could beat that assessment if he can show NFL doctors that his ankle injuries aren't an issue moving forward.

Alabama HC Nick Saban told reporters that sophomore QB Tua Tagovailoa is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery from his ankle injury.

"He’s been able to take a lot of reps," Saban said. "He’s been able to throw the ball from the pocket. He can run." Saban also noted that he's not 100 percent in terms of change-of-direction runs, but that he's already going full speed on the treadmill. Tagovailoa still has another 12 days before he faces off against Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl, and at this point, it would be a major surprise if he wasn't behind center for that semifinal match.

FIU junior RB Shawndarrius Phillips will not play in the Bahamas Bowl following his arrest for domestic violence.

Phillips was arrested on December 12, which is nearly six months after the assault took place. A second investigation took place after the original charge on June 18 was disposed, and he was arrested for having an outstanding warrant on Wednesday. FIU has not commented on the incident yet, and there's no word on if this is a disciplinary suspension or Phillips' choice.

Michigan sophomore DT Aubrey Solomon announced his intention to transfer.

Solomon was a huge get for the Wolverines in 2017, and the 6-foot-3, 297-pound tackle showed flashes during his time with the Wolverines. He also battled injuries during his sophomore season, and appeared in just two games for Michigan in 2018. He'll get another year of eligibility because he didn't appear four-plus games, but he'll have to sit out the 2019 season if he transfers to a program at the FBS level. There should be lots -- and we do mean lots -- of interest in his services.

Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports that new USC OC Kliff Kingsbury is still a potential candidate for an NFL coaching job.

Kingsbury was hired to serve as offensive coordinator on December 5, but it sounds like it could -- emphasis on could -- be a short stay. He was fired by Texas Tech after going 35-40 in his time with the Red Raiders, but he's viewed as one of the more innovative offensive minds in the sport, and the NFL is always looking for the next big thing when it comes to scheme(s). There are even reports from Glazer that suggest he could be an NFL head coaching candidate, which seems farfetched, but just goes to show you how respected Kingsbury is as an offensive mind. Fun.

Iowa junior QB Nathan Stanley will return to school for his senior season.

This isn't a big surprise, but it's welcome news for the Hawkeyes. Stanley took some big step forwards in 2018, and threw for 23 touchdowns with nine interceptions in his junior year. That 58.3 completion percentage still leaves a lot to be desired, and consistency has been an issue for the 6-foot-4, 242-pound signal-caller. A strong showing as a senior could see Stanley as a potential Day 2 pick in 2020.

Notre Dame HC Brian Kelly was named the AP Coach of the Year.

Kelly takes home the award over fellow finalists Josh Heupel of UCF and Nick Saban of Alabama. It's the second Coach of the Year honor for the 57-year-old, as he won the Hope Depot Coach of the Year award in on December 5. The plaudits are deserved; Kelly lead the Irish to a 12-0 season and an appearance in the College Football Playoff against Clemson in a year where most prognosticators expected eight-to-nine wins.
