Transferring Cal redshirt senior RB Tre Watson tweeted that he will be visiting LSU on April 27.

Watson (5'10/190) was on hand in Lubbock to check out Texas Tech's spring game this past weekend as he continues to sort through his options. He had also been planning on a visit to BYU, but due to some scheduling conflicts, he has had to cancel that trip. He did not mention a potential makeup date for the BYU visit, so the Cougars may just be plum out of luck on this one. LSU has an open competition at running back as it looks to replace both Derrius Guice and backup Darrel Williams for the 2018 season, making the Tigers a logical potential landing spot for the Golden Bears back. Watson missed the vast majority of the past season due to an injury sustained in September, but during a healthy 2016 campaign, rushed for respectable 709 yards. It's unclear just when Watson might be ready to make his decision, nor if there are other players in the mix beyond Texas Tech, LSU and (kind of) BYU.

There were 64 total players placed on the Mackey Award watch list; an award that goes to the top tight end in the country.

Oklahoma received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 CB Jaden Davis.

Davis has been considered a strong lean towards Oklahoma for a while, but he also was considering Florida, Clemson, Georgia and Penn State; among others. He ranks 24th among corners in the 247 Sports composite rankings, and 33rd among prospects out of Florida. At 5-foot-9, 168-pounds, Davis doesn't have elite size, but reports rave bout his ball-skills and ability to stick in coverage. That build seems like an ideal fit for the nickel, but Davis may have the talent to play on the outside in the Big 12.

Texas A&M received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 RB Isaiah Spiller.

Spiller (6'1/190) was in Oklahoma's corner into April, but opted to reopen his recruitment in order to better get a sense of his options. There's been a fair bit of momentum toward Spiller hooking up with Texas A&M, with buzz building at The Opening Finals earlier this month that the Aggies might be in line for his pledge. The 247Sports composite board ranks him as the No. 200 overall prospect in the 2019 class. He's a true three-down back, one who could see the field very early in his collegiate career. Texas A&M is already reaping the benefits of HC Jimbo Fisher's prowess as a recruiter and is currently tracking toward a potential top-five or even top-three class for the cycle.

Wisconsin and Ohio State were picked to win the "Big Ten West" and "Big Ten East" in the media's preseason poll released on Friday.

The Badgers were anointed kings in West, bringing home all 28 first-place ballots from the media. Iowa, Northwestern, Nebraska and Purdue were the next four teams to land behind Wisconsin, but received nary a first-place vote. Over on the other side of the metaphorical mountain, Ohio State paced the East with 23.5 first-place votes, followed in sequential order by Michigan State (two), Penn State (one) and Michigan (1.5). You could argue for minor movement, but on the whole, there's not much to quibble with, here. Pretty by-the-book. Welcome to polling season.

Alabama and Georgia were chosen by the SEC media as winners of the conference's "West" and "East" divisions in Friday's preseason poll.

Everything was set up about the way you'd expect in Friday's poll release. Alabama was the overwhelming favorite to win the West, garnering 263 first-place votes. They can barely see the predicted second-place team, way off in the distance. That would be Auburn, which drew 19 first-place ballots, followed by Mississippi State. Over in the East, the first-place votes were spread throughout the division -- every team except for Vanderbilt and Missouri received at least one such tally -- but it was still ultimately Georgia's show. The Bulldogs garnered 271 votes to win the division, with second-place South Carolina (eight) and third-place Florida (four) the only other teams to garner more than a solitary first-place ballot. End takeaway? The media likes an Alabama-Georgia conference championship game. The winner of that would almost certainly then end up in the Playoff.

UCLA freshman ATH Bryan Addison has been granted a release from his scholarship.

Addison (6'4/176) is now back out on the open market after initially signing with the Bruins this past December as a four-star recruit. Explained the versatile athlete, "I had some issues with the college board and UCLA admissions. I have been fighting this for 5-6 weeks and things were a little slow to get going and time was running out for me." He said that, understandably, it had become stressful to watch his fellow freshman class enroll without him. ASU, Oregon, USC, Nebraska and Washington are all programs which could now stand to benefit from the former four-star athlete's newfound freedom of movement. Not only that, but because he never technically enrolled at UCLA, he'll be eligible to play immediately with his program-to-be after he's settled on a new home. He hopes to make a decision within the next week or so. Addison ranked as Rivals' No. 51 overall prospect in the 2018 class, meaning there's still considerable talent to be tapped, here.

ACC commissioner John Swofford said that he expects the NCAA to eventually require teams to release injury reports.

"I think that is critically important and would not only include injuries but if there is disciplinary action where a player is suspended for a game for whatever reason, that would need to be a part of it as well," Swofford said. Speaking at the ACC Kickoff on Wednesday, he indicated that he does not expect the requirement of injury reports to be implemented prior to the 2019 season. The impetus for the potential change came about when the Supreme Court lifted the federal ban on gambling earlier this year. Swofford noted that coaches in his conference are in a general agreement that injury reports are going to be necessary in the near future given the state of the landscape.

FAU HC Lane Kiffin spoke out in opposition to North Carolina HC Larry Fedora's Wednesday skepticism regarding the connection between CTE and concussions.

"What's the most important thing? Long-term health, or how the game looks?" Kiffin asked rhetorically on Thursday. He later added that he believes that safety changes being implemented in the game -- which he supports -- will ultimately help the sport and help to keep people involved with the sport. Fedora made major waves on Wednesday when he voiced doubts over the scientific connection between CTE and concussions, saying that football was "under attack." Dino Babers and Will Muschamp are among those (along with Kiffin) who have spoken out in refutation of Fedora's stance over the past 24-plus hours.

Alabama redshirt senior LB Keith Holcombe has quit football in order to focus on baseball.

"He's always wanted to play baseball. He's had an opportunity to play baseball, and we decided to give him the opportunity to go full-time in baseball this year," Tide HC Nick Saban said, explaining that Holcombe had the option to potentially give it a go as a two-sport athlete, but that the redshirt senior declined on the football side. So baseball it is, now. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder was an active performer for the defending champs last season, recording 38 tackles, but Saban and his staff have been anticipating his departure for some time, as Holcombe did not take part in spring practice. His loss thins an already thin depth chart at inside linebacker. The team should be OK for now, but if Dylan Moses or Mack Wilson were to suffer injury upcoming, the lack of depth might start to become problematic.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn said that senior WR Will Hastings' recovery from a torn ACL sustained in the spring is "going excellent."

"He's off to a very good start," Malzahn said. Hastings (5'10/167) initially tore his ACL during spring practices. Even at the beginning of May, Malzahn was expressing hope that the wideout would be ready to return to play before the end of the upcoming campaign. No setbacks have occurred since to dash that hope, it would appear. Just when -- specifically -- Hastings might be healthy enough to see the field remains unknown, but this picture should begin to clarify in the coming weeks. Working out of the slot last season, he registered a 26-525-4 receiving line.
