Oregon freshman WR Jalen Hall has been dismissed from the team following his arrest on suspicion of robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, kidnapping and burglary.

Police reportedly apprehended Hall and a suspected accomplice after responding to an alert regarding a home invasion burglary on Monday afternoon. The two were actually caught after they had fled the scene, when they were pulled over for reckless driving. While this is Hall's first arrest, the former four-star recruit left the team during spring practice and did not start out August camp with the Ducks, so there's clearly been quite a bit going on behind the scenes leading up to this point. Coming out of high school over the winter, he ranked as 247Sports' No. 127 overall prospect in the 2018 class.

Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Tate Martell transferred to Miami.

We wouldn't blame Hurricanes HC Manny Diaz if he's doing a little dance tonight, because his team struck two major positive blows on the evening. About an hour before news broke of Martell's impending transfer to Coral Gables, junior WR Jeff Thomas -- who had been dismissed from the team in November and subsequently transferred to Illinois -- announced that he had decided to return to Miami. Martell is expected to formally announce his transfer on Wednesday. Per The Athletic's Bruce Feldman, the redshirt sophomore is expected to sit out the 2019 campaign to satisfy NCAA regulations. We have seen other players request and receive waivers for immediate playing time, but it would appear that Martell is not going to try for that route. Rivals ranked him as the No. 39 overall prospect in the 2017 class coming out of high school. He opted to transfer away from Ohio State after Georgia's Justin Fields moved in on his turf in Columbus earlier this winter.

Illinois junior WR Jeff Thomas has decided to return to Miami.

Whoa now. Thomas (5'10/175) was dismissed from the Hurricanes near the end of the regular season and had subsequently decided to transfer to Illinois. The Miami Herald reported over the weekend that Thomas was considering a potential return to Miami, but in a News-Gazette piece released on Monday, he was quoted as saying that he planned on sticking it out with the Illini. So much for that. This is a major coup for Hurricanes HC Manny Diaz, who will now have both K.J. Osborn (formerly of Buffalo) and Thomas to play around with come the start of the 2019 season. Thomas logged a 35-563-3 receiving line in 11 games for the 2018 campaign, prior to his November dismissal.

Kansas State redshirt senior QB Alex Delton transferred to TCU as a graduate.

ESPN's Jake Trotter reported near the end of December that Delton would be transferring to UTEP, but the K-State signal-caller took to Twitter on Tuesday to write that there had been a "change of plans" and that he would actually be on the move to TCU. The 6-foot, 205-pound redshirt senior will be arriving on campus this week as he looks to settle in to his new digs before the start of spring practice. While he isn't much to look at in terms of a polished passing game, Delton does bring to the table decent rushing chops. The Horned Frogs had just three scholarship quarterbacks on roster (Michael Collins, Justin Rogers and Max Duggan) prior to Delton's transfer. We expect much-heralded 2018 recruit Rogers to receive every chance to win the starting job this offseason.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that he has spoken with "at least a dozen" sources in the evaluating community who do not view Alabama T Jonah Williams as a top-10 pick.

Pauline, himself, has voiced consistent skepticism over Williams' worth as a potential top-10 selection and wanted to canvass about to see if he was on an island. At least from those he spoke with, that would not appear to be the case. Explained the analyst, "The earliest grade I’ve received on him is the mid-first round, while some project him as a second-round selection." Pauline also passes along that the consensus view among those he has spoken with is that Williams' best fit at the NFL level will come at guard, rather than tackle, writing that the 6-foot-5, 301-pounder is "superb fundamentally but lacks the athleticism, agility and footwork to stay at left tackle on Sundays." These notes -- especially when it comes to Williams' future position -- will be worth keeping in mind as the predraft process deepens.

Arkansas State hired Western Michigan LB coach Dave Duggan to serve as defensive coordinator.

Duggan will be taking over for Joe Cauthen, who earlier left to take the defensive-coordinating position under Dana Holgorsen at Houston. He has spent the past three seasons at Western Michigan and earlier served on the staffs of Southern Miss (2008-11, 2013-15) and North Carolina (2012), among others. This will not be his first go-round as defensive coordinator, as he likewise served in that capacity during his second stint with Southern Miss. He also has earlier experience at that position below the FBS level.

Texas redshirt sophomore RB Toneil Carter transferred to Sam Houston State.

Carter (5'11/210) rushed for 252 yards and three touchdowns across nine games played during his inaugural season on campus in 2017, after signing on with the Longhorns as a four-star recruit, but he was unable to crack the field for even a singular carry during the just-completed campaign. He'll be receiving a redshirt for the season. At Sam Houston State, Carter will be eligible to play immediately come the start of the 2019 season.

Clemson sophomore QB Trevor Lawrence was named the winner of the Archie Griffin Award.

Unlike the bulk of awards handed out for the 2018 campaign, the Archie Griffin (essentially the CFB season's MVP) is not bestowed until after the conclusion of the bowl slate. Thus how Trevor Lawrence -- who was never seriously in conversation with Tua Tagovailoa or Kyler Murray for the Heisman as the fall wound down -- can come away victorious for the honor. He dazzled the CFB world with his 347-yard, three-touchdown torching of Alabama in the National Championship Game earlier this month and is going to enter the 2019 season as a short-list favorite for the Heisman.

Arkansas redshirt senior WR La'Michael Pettway announced he'll leave Arkansas as a graduate transfer.

Pettway will be able to play immediately for his final season at whatever institution he lands at. In a season that was chalk full of disappointments, Pettway showed some flashes of brilliance in his redshirt junior season; catching 30 passes for 499 yards with four touchdowns. The 6-foot-2, 219-pound wideout won't be a star, but should help someone's receiver rotation -- potentially as a starter -- in 2019.

Bet Online currently installs Clemson sophomore QB Trevor Lawrence as the favorite to win the 2019 Heisman Trophy.

Lawrence currently has 3/1 odds to win the award, with Alabama signal-caller Tua Tagovailoa just behind at 4/1. It's also interesting to see that Jalen Hurts -- Tagovailoa's backup who is currently likely to transfer -- is third at 9/1. Lawrence was very impressive in his first year as the starter, and considering Clemson returns essentially everything on offense, he should be even better in 2019.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller mocks Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray to the Jacksonville Jaguars with the seventh pick in his latest mock draft.

There are still questions about whether or not Murray is going to play football, but based on all of the reports/the fact that he did declare for the draft, it sure seems like that's what's going to happen. Miller points out that many scouts aren't sold that the quarterback is a first-round talent, but the shift to more wide-open offenses and the success of players like Baker Mayfield open up doors, potentially. The Jaguars clearly need a quarterback -- sorry, Blake -- and with Murray's speed and accuracy, he could be the long-term answer despite his 5-foot-9 (likely) height.

The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard believes that North Dakota State QB Easton Stick struggled on Monday during practice for the East-West Shrine Game.

Ledyard goes so far as to say that Stick was the worst of the six quarterbacks he saw on Monday. "Stick consistently misfired, through [sic] the wrong route once, waited far too long to pull the trigger in 1v1s and let a semi-high snap go through his hands," he writes. There has been a lot of hype involving Stick -- and this is just one practice -- but this was essentially the consensus of what analysts saw from the signal-caller on Monday. Here's hoping he's much better going forward.
