Baylor freshman WR Kalon Barnes set the high school record with a 100 meter dash time of 10.05 seconds.

That time beats the national record of 10.15, which was held by numerous athletes before being broken by Barnes. Obviously, the 5-foot-11, 172-pound athlete has blazing speed, and he's also shown the ability to make people miss with his quickness and ability to shift. Baylor likely will give Barnes a look in special teams, and they could find a way to get the four-star signing the football this fall in other ways.

Dismissed Virginia Tech redshirt junior S/LB Mook Reynolds is facing a felony charge of selling and distributing marijuana or for the possession of marijuana with the intent to sell or distribute.

Reynolds (6'0/185) was dismissed from the Hokies this past Monday, with no details available as to the reason why. Looks like we have our reason, now. Earlier on that same day, the redshirt junior had been arrested on the above felony charge. He's set to appear in court on July 27. It's been a turbulent offseason even beyond this last nail in his Virginia Tech coffin, as the program had suspended him for the spring semester for unspecified reasons even before his exit was hastened by this week's arrest. In terms of the on-field deficit now faced, it's a notable one, as Reynolds had logged a total of 134 tackles (18.0 for loss) over the past two campaigns. The Hokies will address his depth chart vacancy -- along with that of the just-drafted Adonis Alexander -- in August camp. Va Tech HC Justin Fuente is going to have his work cut out for him as he looks to piece together a team from what is a somewhat gnawed-over roster between graduations and offseason departures.

Cal redshirt sophomore WR Demetris Robertson transferred to Georgia.

The Bulldogs landed Robertson -- a native of Savannah -- over fellow finalists Alabama, Texas and West Virginia. The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder initially announced his intent to transfer from the Golden Bears in late June. Coming out of high school, Rivals ranked him as the No. 8 overall prospect in the 2016 class. He logged a 50-767-7 receiving line as a true freshman and likely would have topped those numbers last season had he not been waylaid by a lower-body injury which cut the campaign short after just two games. Per Rivals, Robertson is "expected" to apply for a hardship waiver to give him a year of eligibility back, though it should be noted that it's unclear at this juncture whether this would mean immediate eligibility. Regardless, this is a boon of a landing for HC Kirby Smart and staff.

Michigan junior DE Rashan Gary ranks at the top of The Athletic's Bruce Feldman "freaks" list for the 2018 season.

No surprise here. Gary is not only one of the most dominant and versatile defenders in the class -- one who has gotten top-five consideration for the 2019 draft -- he's one of the very best athletes regardless of position. As Feldman notes his 6.79 second 3-cone drill time this summer would have been best of defensive lineman at the NFL Scouting Combine this spring. He also ran a 4.75 second 40-yard dash, and the 6-foot-5, 287-pound defensive end had a 10-foot, 4-inch broad jump. Ridiculous.

TCU HC Gary Patterson said of the NCAA's decision to loosen transfer regulations, "What we're teaching our kids to do is quit."

"Here’s what’s going to happen – players from other teams are going to start recruiting people and you can’t stop them from going wherever they’re going to go," Patterson said, later adding, "Every freshman I’ve ever known wants to transfer because it’s harder than anything else he did in high school." He also stressed that he believes the NCAA's recent moves -- players will no longer have to ask permission to transfer come the fall, for instance -- will ultimately end up hurting G5 teams far more than those in the Power 5. Patterson's in a unique position to judge both sides of the coin, as the Horned Frogs did not join the Big 12 until the 2012 season. His full comments are well worth a read at the source link.

NJ.com's Keith Sargeant reports that "as many as eight" unnamed Rutgers players are being investigated as part of a possible credit card fraud case.

Shades of Florida from last summer? Details are still scant at this time, but Sargeant is reporting that he has confirmation from three separate sources that there is an investigation currently being conducted regarding the potential fraudulent use of credit cards by multiple Scarlet Knight football players. Sargeant's report comes just days after DB K.J. Gray and LB Brendan DeVera were dismissed from the team for an unspecified rules violation. Those dismissals may be completely unrelated, though we'll note that Gray was asked about possible involvement in this case, but declined comment on advice of his lawyer. We'll keep monitoring this story in the days and weeks ahead, as it certainly feels like another shoe could be dropping in the near future.

In the Big 12 media's preseason conference poll, Oklahoma was ranked No. 1 by a margin of 44 first-place votes.

The Sooners are far-and-away the media's pick to reign supreme over the conference once again, drawing 46 first-place votes to runner-up pick West Virginia's two first-place ballots. TCU, Texas and Oklahoma State round out the top-five. One interesting little nugget beneath the expected big boys projected to finish atop the Big 12 -- Kansas State (picked to finish sixth) actually received a pair of first-place votes. The poll is rounded out sequentially by Iowa State, Texas Tech, Baylor and Kansas.

Auburn and North Carolina are scheduled to play one of three Chick-fil-A Kickoff Games in 2020 season.

The other two contests in this Chick-fil-A set for 2020 -- it will stretch out over a week -- are previously-announced showdowns of West Virginia versus Florida State and Georgia versus Virginia. This contest between Auburn and North Carolina will be played on Sept. 12 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. UNC owns a 4-2 edge all-time in this series, though five of the six matchups were played prior to 1990. They last played when UNC eked out a 16-10 win in the 2001 Peach Bowl, so it's been a hot minute.

The Tampa Bay Times' Joey Knight reports that contrary to earlier stories, USF junior QB Brett Kean is not facing an academic eligibility issue.

We've got a bit to unpack with this one. On Tuesday, SB Nation's Nathan Bond passed along that Kean would be suspended the first four games of the season due to academic trials. While Knight is now reporting that these classroom issues have been cleared up, Bond responded to that with a clarification of his own, maintaining that a four-game suspension was in the works but that a "very unique" waiver to the NCAA will have that knocked down to two games. Obviously, we're not quite to the bottom of this story. The junior's true status figures to clarify in the coming days and weeks. Kean is looking to secure the starting gig vacated by Quinton Flowers this offseason. Redshirt sophomore Chris Oladokun is waiting in the wings should Kean run into a roadblock, either academically or performance-wise.

Yahoo Sports' Terez Paylor reports that the New York Jets have signed Mississippi State S Brandon Bryant as an undrafted free agent.

While Bryant was not selected outright during Wednesday's supplemental draft, looks like he was signed right after festivities drew to a conclusion. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline notes that the 5-foot-11, 207-pound Mississippi State product "has tremendous upside but must pull the pieces together and take his play to another level to make a roster this fall." Pauline is concerned in part by Bryant's tendency to play without a sense of tempo or urgency and refers to him as a "better athlete than football player right now."

With the 2018 supplemental draft concluded, Mississippi State S Brandon Bryant, Oregon State LB Bright Ugwoegbu and Grand Valley State RB Martyveus Carter are now NFL free agents.

A pair of corners -- Western Michigan's Sam Beal and Virginia Tech's Adonis Alexander -- were drafted by the Giants and Redskins in the third and sixth rounds of Wednesday's supplemental shindig, respectively. No such luck for Bryant, Ugwoegbu and Carter. Bryant would be our guess as most likely to receive a serious look from NFL squads, but realistically, all three players in question should be considered long-shots for any kind of a real pro career.

Redskins selected Virginia Tech CB Adonis Alexander with a sixth-round pick in the 2018 supplemental draft.

The Redskins will surrender a 2019 sixth-rounder. Western Michigan CB Sam Beal was taken in the third round by the Giants, and Beal had clearly separated himself from Alexander as the draft's top prospect. Alexander stands 6'2/195 but ran a 4.60 forty at his Pro Day with a 35.5-inch vertical and just nine bench-press reps. He had a number of off-field issues in college and was ruled academically ineligible before declaring for the supplemental draft. He's merely a late-round flier who should get at least one year to stick at the end of the roster. Alexander is unlikely to make a rookie-year impact barring injuries.
