Former Alabama redshirt junior C Brandon Kennedy transferred to Tennessee as a graduate.

Upon Kennedy's announcement that he'd transfer as a graduate last month, the Tide barred him from transferring to any SEC school. That drew some national ire, which in turn fired up Nick Saban, who said he was merely abiding by conference rule. For better or worse, the decision is now out of Saban's hands -- and will be, going forward. The SEC adopted a new rule on June 1 stating that grad transfers can transfer within the conference without sitting out a year. A four-star 2015 signee, Kennedy (6'3/301) was the Crimson Tide's top backup center in 2017 before an injury knocked him out for the year. As he reunites with HC Jeremy Pruitt, Kennedy is in the mix to play immediately. He has two years of eligibility left.

Redshirt senior DL Chigozie Nnoruka transferred from UCLA to Miami.

Nnoruka announced his intent to transfer three weeks ago, and he's found a solid landing spot in the ACC. HE was an 11-game starter in 2017, but the defender had just seven tackles as a redshirt junior for the Bruins. The 6-foot-1, 294-pound defender should compete for a starting spot for Miami, or at the very least should be a solid rotation player for the Hurricanes in the 2019 season.

Adam Rittenberg reports that Virginia Tech WR coach Holmon Wiggins is expected to serve in the same capacity for Alabama.

Wiggins was reportedly deciding between two jobs: Coaching wideouts for the Crimson Tide, or becoming the new offensive coordinator at Temple. Sounds like Alabama wins this one. Wiggins will replace Josh Gattis, who left to take the OC job at Michigan earlier this offseason. He's coached wide receivers for 16 seasons, and joined Virginia Tech from Memphis in 2016 when Justin Fuente left the Tigers for the Hokies.

Texas A&M redshirt junior QB Nick Starkel announced his intent to transfer as a graduate.

Starkel has entered the magical world that is the transfer portal, which will allow schools to recruit the redshirt junior. Starkel had a 14/6 TD/INT ratio in his redshirt freshman season, but lost the starting gig to Kellen Mond, and threw just 22 passes last year. Since he's leaving with his degree, he'll be able to play immediately at whatever school he lands at -- the SEC doesn't block inter-conference transfers -- and have two more years of eligibility.

Virginia Tech senior WR Eric Kumah has entered the transfer portal.

Kumah is a big loss for the Hokies, as the wideout was second on the team with 42 catches and also scored seven touchdowns to go with his 559 yards receiving. We assume he'll be leaving with his degree -- or with one semester left, as the rules state -- so he'll be eligible to play immediately for whatever school he lands at. It's also worth noting that he has been informed that WR coach Holmon Wiggins will be coaching elsewhere, as there are rumors that Wiggins will be heading to Alabama.

Kansas has hired Southern Miss RB coach Les Koenning to be the new offensive coordinator.

Koenning, 59, has been coaching on the offensive side of the football since 1981. He's been an offensive coordinator for schools like Alabama, Duke, Mississippi State and UAB. This is the second offensive coordinator that the Jayhawks have hired, as original OC Chip Lindsey was named the head coach of Troy after Neal Brown left for West Virginia.

247Sports' Brendan Sonnone reports that Florida State redshirt sophomore James Blackman will likely remain with the program rather than transfer.

Sonnone reported last Wednesday that Blackman was getting set to enter into the NCAA transfer portal, but the redshirt sophomore signal-caller was not listed in the portal as of Friday and appears to have settled back in with the Seminoles for the time being. Blackman apparently had productive meetings with coaches -- including HC Willie Taggart and OC Kendal Briles -- over the past few days. The 6-foot-5, 181-pounder threw for 421 yards and four touchdowns against NC State last season, in what was his lone start of the campaign. Barring a change of heart, he will once again be looking to unseat Deondre Francois as starter upcoming.

Michigan DE Rashan Gary has started up his own agency in Rashan Gary Sports.

We have seen prospects handle their own agency during the draft season -- Lamar Jackson notably did so a year ago -- but this would be the first time in memory that a draft-bound player has started up an entire agency coming out of college. Said Gary, "It's going to change the game. Now players know the power they have, and taking this step is big for me, my family and my dream." His mother, Jennifer Coney-Shepherd, is president of the agency, while traditional agent Ian Clarke will be handling Gary's contract and the like come the spring (but will be drawing salary as an agency employee, rather than cashing in on percentage). Rashan Gary Sports already has one client beyond the namesake in the fold, in Bowling Green DB Montre Gregory. The eventual hope, here, is that Gary's new enterprise will eventually have clients across multiple sports.

Buffalo QB Tyree Jackson measured in at 6-foot-7, 249 pounds at the Reese's Senior Bowl.

We already knew that Jackson was an imposing physical prospect, with his Senior Bowl weigh-in simply confirming those bonafides. In addition to the above listed measurements, the Buffalo gunslinger's hands checked in at an even 10 inches. As impressive as all of this is, it is merely window dressing for the practice week itself. Jackson is an exceedingly raw prospect and has as much to prove as any player on hand in Mobile. If he shows off more polish than expected during the practice week, it would be an encouraging development for his draft stock.

Baylor WR Jalen Hurd (knee) will not participate in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

While Hurd did weigh in down in Mobile -- he measured 6-foot-4, 227 pounds, with 10 1/8-inch hands -- and is doing interviews with interested NFL teams on Tuesday, he will be sidelined for Saturday's game proper due to his ongoing recovery from a knee surgery which he underwent on Dec. 4. We would love to get a glimpse at Hurd in this setting, but even sitting out the game, he is getting important work done with those interviews, as they give him an opportunity to speak honestly about his departure from Tennessee to Baylor as well as his transition from running back to receiver. We'll have to wait and see whether the talented athlete will be able to participate in NFL Scouting Combine drills to any serious degree next month.

Kansas State hired Wyoming DC Scottie Hazelton to serve in the same capacity.

Hazelton will also serve as linebackers coach for the Wildcats. He has been working as Wyoming's defensive coordinator for the past two seasons, helping the Cowboys to post top-30 scoring defenses in each of those campaigns. Beyond Wyoming, Hazelton has previously held defensive-coordinating positions with Nevada (2013), North Dakota State (2010-11), Missouri Southern State (2004-05) and Fort Lewis College (1999). Kansas State HC Chris Klieman had initially tabbed Ted Monachino as defensive coordinator at the end of December, but he has since bounced for a job on staff with the Chicago Bears.

ESPN ranks Stanford WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside as the No. 3 wide receiver.

Arcega-Whiteside (6'3/225) only trails Oklahoma's Marquise Brown and Arizona State's N'Keal Harry on their list. The redshirt junior was a stud at Stanford piling enough production with high-end efficiency to land as Hayden Winks' top receiver prospect solely based on analytics. Arcega-Whiteside specifically tested well as a red zone weapon, but draft analysts have some questions about his playing speed. Putting up big numbers at the NFL Combine will go a long way for the Day 2 prospect.
