According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Kyler Murray's finalized contract with the Oakland A's includes language that allows him to play football in 2018 before he must turn his attention to baseball full-time.

Good news, bad news for the Sooners. The good news -- the glorious news -- is that Murray is locked in to play quarterback for the Sooners next fall. He'll almost assuredly take over Baker Mayfield's old post. The bad news is that Oklahoma will not be able to cash in on his redshirt senior campaign in 2019. As part of the deal, Murray has agreed to forego his final collegiate season of eligibility. Murray is expected to play out the football season and then turn his attention full-time to baseball, reporting to 2019 spring training with Oakland. The ninth overall pick in the MLB Draft earlier this month, Murray signed for about $4.6 million. The deal includes an insurance policy in the event that Murray suffers a severe injury playing football this season.

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.

Mississippi State S Jonathan Abram will not play in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

While Abram won't be able to play in the event, the Mississippi State alum will be able to stay in Mobile and conduct interviews. It's a medical issue that will keep Abram from playing in the game. In his place, James Madison DB Jimmy Moreland has been added to the roster. Hopefully Abram will be able to attend the combine.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Wyoming DC Scottie Hazelton will become the new defensive coordinator at Kansas State.

Reports state that Hazelton is currently visiting the school, and that the announcement could come as soon as Tuesday. The Wildcats had an unexpected opening in their staff when Ted Monachino took a job with the Chicago Bears shortly after being named the new DC. Hazelton has coached with new Kansas State head coach Chris Klieman before; as Hazelton worked with Klieman at North Dakota State.

Redshirt junior LB Dae'lun Darien transferred from Penn State to Delaware.

Darien announced that he'd be leaving Happy Valley at the beginning of the month. He was a backup linebacker for the Nittany Lions, and picked up four tackles in his time with Penn State in 2018. Because he's leaving for the FCS level, the 6-foot-4, 223-pound linebacker will be eligible to play immediately for the next two seasons for the Blue Hens.

Miami DT Gerald Willis (undisclosed) won't be able to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

It's never good when a player has to miss an event like this, but one who has been as impressive as Willis in his collegiate career is especially a bummer. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound defender says he'll prepare for testing in the combine, so the good news -- so far -- is that it doesn't sound like a long-term injury. He currently projects as a Day 2 pick, one who could easily be off the board before the end of the second round.
Jan 21 - 3:30 PM

The Athletic's Dane Brugler believes that Mississippi State DE Montez Sweat is the top prospect playing at the Senior Bowl.

That honor would have gone to Josh Allen, but since the Kentucky edge rusher pulled out of the event, Sweat gets Brugler's top grade. He was as key of reason as any that Mississippi State had the top defense in the country last year, piling up 22 sacks and 29 tackles for loss. Brugler notes his quick first step and length (6'6/241) and that he's flexible enough to beat tackles around the edge. He's also a solid run defender, although there are more questions about that part of his game than his pass-rushing skills. "There is a logjam of different "types" of edge rushers in the first round," Brugler writes, "and Sweat will have an opportunity to separate himself from the pack in Mobile."
Jan 21 - 2:57 PM

The Athletic's Bruce Feldman reports that Mississippi State DC Bob Shoop received a two-year contract extension.

It's not known how much the contract extension is for at this time, but you would have to assume this will make him among the highest paid defensive coordinators. The Bulldogs finished with the top defense in the country last year, and helped Mississippi State win eight games while reaching the Outback Bowl.
Jan 21 - 2:21 PM

Penn State signed four-star 2019 DT D'Von Ellies.

Ellies actually signed on in December, but wanted to announce his commitment at the Polynesian Bowl, and announce he did. He was considered a lean for the Nittany Lions for quite some time, but he also was considering Ohio State and USC; among other high-profile schools. The 6-foot-2, 280-pound defensive tackle ranks 10th in 247 Sports list at the position, and while he'll need to add strength, he could be a potential rotation player immediately for Penn State.
