The Athletic's Bruce Feldman hears that contrary to earlier reports, Virginia Tech redshirt sophomore QB Joshua Jackson (academics) has not been suspended indefinitely by the team.

While Jackson apparently remains in good standing with the team at this juncture, his availability for the fall may be in question due to academic concerns. His father told the Richmond Times-Dispatch on Thursday that clarity as to the quarterback's situation should come in "two days," so we may hear more from this story either later on Friday or over the weekend. Jackson started all 13 games for the Hokies last season, throwing for 2,991 yards (59.6% completions) with a 20/9 TD/INT ratio. Backup quarterbacks Hendon Hooker and Ryan Willis would be thrust into the August spotlight should Jackson find himself in an eligibility lurch upcoming.

Uncommitted five-star 2019 DT Ishmael Sopsher is planning to take official visits to Ole Miss, LSU and Alabama before National Signing Day.

It's going to be a frenzied finish to the cycle for Sopsher, who will not start out on this last slate of officials until next week. The 6-foot-4, 294-pounder is currently in Hawaii for the Polynesian Bowl, though he will not be taking part in the game proper as he is currently dealing with a shoulder injury. Sopsher already earlier took official visits to Texas A&M and Oregon. Florida State and Texas are also in the running for his pledge. Still much to be sorted out, here. As for his on-field game, 247Sports analyst Barton Simmons writes that the Amite, Louisiana, native is a "[d]ensely built defender with a powerful lower-half and a thick upper-half who brings mass without a lot of bad weight," one who possesses "natural strength and punch." On the outlet's composite rankings board, Sopsher slots in at No. 32 overall for the 2019 cycle. He does not plan on announcing his school of choice until National Signing Day.

ESPN's Mark Schlabach reports that SMU is a potential transfer destination for Texas redshirt junior QB Shane Buechele.

Buechele (6'1/210) has entered into the NCAA transfer portal as he explores his future options outside of Austin. The Mustangs make for a logical potential landing spot, as they just lost Ben Hicks to an Arkansas transfer. Buechele saved a year of eligibility via a redshirt this past season after appearing in just two games, and to make matters all the sweeter for potential suitors such as SMU, the quarterback is set to graduate in May, meaning that he will be eligible to play immediately come the start of the 2019 campaign. Back in 2016, Buechele threw for 2,958 yards with a 21/11 TD/INT ratio while starting 12 games. He has since been supplanted as starter by Sam Ehlinger.

Miami redshirt sophomore QB N'Kosi Perry does not plan on transferring.

"N’Kosi is looking forward to what [OC Dan Enos] can bring to the quarterbacks," said Roberta, the quarterback's mother. The 6-foot-4, 185-pound redshirt sophomore appeared in 11 games -- making six starts -- during the 2018 season. He was yanked around somewhat by former HC Mark Richt, who flip-flopped between Perry and Malik Rosier at points throughout the campaign. All told, Perry finished out the 2018 campaign having thrown for 1,091 yards (50.8-percent completions) with a 13/6 TD/INT ratio while rushing for 169 yards and a score. He will be competing with Jarren Williams and Cade Weldon for starting honors this offseason, though OSU transfer Tate Martell could shake this all up considerably should he receive an eligibility waiver from the NCAA.

Michigan State RB LJ Scott (ankle) has been ruled out for the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Scott (6'1/225) dealt with a multitude of injuries during the 2018 season, missing so much time that he actually would have been eligible for a redshirt had he not participated in MSU's Redbox Bowl showdown with Oregon at the end of December. Given the large, large chunk of time that he has already missed in the recent past -- as well as his generally underwhelming play when healthy -- it would have been a nice beat for his draft stock had he at least managed to show a little something in Mobile. As is, no dice. Scott is going to need a strong combine upcoming, because he really hasn't given evaluators much to work with over the past year.

Michigan EDGE Chase Winovich (ankle) will not participate in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Winovich (6'3/255) has been dealing with an ankle injury requiring surgery, but as of late December had been planning on delaying that procedure to push through to take part in the Senior Bowl and NFL Scouting Combine. It's not immediately clear whether he has since gone under the knife. We'll update Winovich's status and outlook as information becomes available. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline stamps him with a Round 4 grade at this juncture.

In his first mock draft of 2019, ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. projected the Dolphins to select Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray with the 13th overall selection.

Kiper writes that "if [Murray] goes to the combine -- he's going to run a blazing 40-yard dash -- and goes through workouts for teams, I expect him to be picked in Round 1." As the draft season unfolds, you can expect Murray to be mocked to a variety of draft slots, as he is something of a polarizing prospect. For instance, in his latest mock, Bleacher Report's Matt Miller pushes the Heisman winner all the way to No. 7 with the Jaguars. All of this, of course, is dependent on Murray not simply showing up at spring training for the Oakland A's next month.

Oklahoma freshman QB Spencer Rattler expressed little concern over the transfer of Alabama senior QB Jalen Hurts.

While Rattler relayed to reporters at the end of December that HC Lincoln Riley had told him that the team would not be pursuing a transfer quarterback, Riley came back to him a few weeks later to explain that "we need an older quarterback in the room," with the four-star freshman telling 247Sports that he had no issue with this -- and had a hunch it was coming following Austin Kendall's leap into the transfer portal earlier this month. The 6-foot, 165-pound Rattler will be competing with Hurts and Tanner Mordecai for starting honors in 2019. He signed with the Sooners as a four-star recruit back in December.

Redshirt freshman QB Matthew Downing has transferred from Georgia to TCU.

Downing was a preferred walk-on to the Bulldogs, and appeared in four games for Georgia as a freshman. Because of the new rules, he's allowed to take a redshirt season, but unless he gets a hardship waiver from the NCAA, he's going to have to sit out the 2019 campaign. He'll still have three years of eligibility left, however, and it's possible the 6-foot, 195-pound signal-caller competes for playing time in the next decade.

ESPN's Adam Rittenberg reports that coach Butch Jones will remain with the Crimson Tide for the 2019 season.

It was reported in December that Jones was going to join the Maryland staff as a TE coach, but those reports were obviously premature. That or he changed his mind. We'll let you decide which is more likely. Jones served as an offensive analyst for Alabama in 2018, and it's possible that will be his role again in 2019. It's also possible he moves to an on-field role, as Alabama has several openings on the staff.
Jan 16 - 8:24 PM

Chris Anderson of 247 Sports reports that redshirt junior QB Austin Kendall will enroll at West Virginia on Thursday.

It's amazing how quickly these things come together. Kendall announced his decision to transfer on Friday, and West Virginia quickly moved into a favorite position. That hit a bit of a snag when reports surfaced that the Sooners would block a transfer to West Virginia, but Oklahoma changed their mind/did the right thing, and he's now free to join the Mountaineers. A former four-star recruit, Kendall has played sparingly in his time with the Sooners, which isn't a surprise when you have two Heisman Trophy winners playing ahead of you. He should compete with Jack Allison for the starting job, and in our eyes, he should be considered the favorite to win the job.

Bruce Feldman of The Athletic reports that Alabama DC Tosh Lupoi is leaving the Crimson Tide to coach the defensive line for the Cleveland Browns.

A report earlier Wednesday stated that Lupoi was interviewing with Cleveland. The interview must have gone well, as he's now leaving the Crimson Tide to join the NFL club. It's yet another loss for the Alabama coaching staff, and it's a big one; Lupoi is widely considered among the best recruiters in the country. Don't be surprised if Saban fills this role with a big name, although you can never count out an internal promotion.
