Alabama redshirt sophomore David Cornwell will transfer.

Prior to last season, both ESPN and the Alabama-centric AL.com predicted that Cornwell would beat out Jake Coker to start for the Tide. That didn't happen, and Cornwell subsequently tumbled down the depth chart. Having already graduated from Alabama as a third-year soph, Cornwell is eligible to play immediately wherever he goes and has two years of eligibility remaining. A four-star 2014 recruit, Cornwell was ranked as the No. 4 pro-style QB in the country. Cornwell is the third Tide quarterback to transfer over the past few weeks, following Blake Barnett (committed to play at Arizona State) and Cooper Bateman (undecided). Last December, Tide QB Alec Morris transferred to North Texas. Looks like it's time for Nick Saban to go shopping for a few Jalen Hurts backups.

Stanford redshirt sophomore RB Bryce Love is expected to replace Christian McCaffrey as Stanford's lead back next year.

We're big fans of Love, and believe that the Cardinal rushing attack isn't going to drop off as much as other folks think (Stanford will miss McCaffrey more on special teams and in the receiving game). The 5-foot-10, 184-pound Love averaged 7.8 ypc on limited carries in 2015 and then averaged 7.4 ypc on 90 attempts this year (664 yards, three touchdowns). Love is a speedster with 4.4-second wheels.

Penn State redshirt junior WR DaeSean Hamilton had eight receptions for 118 yards in Saturday's Big Ten Championship Game win against Wisconsin.

All things considered, this may have been Hamilton's best showing on a collegiate field. He hauled in eight-of-eight targets in topping 100 yards receiving for the first time in over two years. Hamilton has disappointed since his outstanding freshman campaign, but it's a very promising sign indeed that he's beginning to develop chemistry with Trace McSorley.

Bucknell T Julie'n Davenport accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Davenport is a member of the Walter Payton Award Watch List who's also a four-time All-Patriot League selection. Utterly dominant at the FCS level, Davenport became only the 13th player in Patriot League history to be a four-time all-conference awardee. He was named to the First-Team All-Patriot League three times.

Clay Hall of WSYX-TV in Columbus reports that Ohio State defensive coordinator Luke Fickell is "in the mix" for the Cincinnati HC job.

Former Bearcats HC Tommy Tubberville recently resigned following a disappointing campaign. Fickell's biggest competition for the job right now would appear to be ousted Texas HC Charlie Strong.

Pittsburgh OT Adam Bisnowaty accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

The four-year starter at left tackle is a team captain who has made 42 career starts. We think the All-ACC performer might have to kick inside to guard at the next level.

Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey confirmed that he will enter the 2017 NFL draft.

McCaffrey announced the news Wednesday on Twitter. McCaffrey wrote in a follow-up news release that "there's nothing more I can put on film," and we tend to agree. He shattered Barry Sanders' NCAA single-season record for all-purpose yardage in 2015 with 3,864 yards, winning the AP National Player of the Year award and finishing second in the Heisman Trophy race behind Alabama's Derrick Henry. C-Mac battled through injuries in 2016 but still put up 2,327 all-purpose yards, leading the country with 211.55 all-purpose yards per game. Despite Stanford's offense regressing and his aforementioned health issues, McCaffrey's ypc average actually jumped from 6.0 in 2015 to 6.3 this season. McCaffrey is the No. 28 overall prospect, according to Todd McShay.

Penn State sophomore RB Saquon Barkley (foot) had 83 yards and a touchdown on 19 attempts in Saturday's Big Ten Championship Game victory over Wisconsin.

He chipped in two receptions for 20 yards and a touchdown. Barkley still hasn't completely shaken the right foot injury he suffered in last month's win over Michigan State, but he toughed it out and showed pretty well against Wisconsin's vicious front seven. Barkley heads into the Rose Bowl against USC with 1,302 yards on the ground and 16 rushing touchdowns on 5.27 yards per carry.
Dec 7 - 2:20 PM

Utah G Isaac Asiata accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

A three-year starter, Asiata is known for his power game. If you deploy a physical rushing attack, he's your guy. Asiata paved the way for Joe Williams and his Utes backfield friends to accrue 210 yards per game rushing.

NC State freshman LB Garrett Hooker is no longer on the football team.

Both Hooker and redshirt freshman wide receiver Brian Sessoms left the program shortly after the regular season concluded. Hooker enrolled last January and took a redshirt this fall. If he transfers to an FBS program, he'll have to sit out again.

Ole Miss redshirt senior QB Chad Kelly (knee) accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Unfortunately, Kelly will be a bystander, unable to participate in practices or play in the game due to a torn ACL and lateral meniscus. The silver lining is that he can rub elbows with evaluators. Across nine games this year, Kelly threw for 2,758 yards and 19 touchdowns. Fully healthy last season, he threw for 4,042 yards.

NC State redshirt freshman WR Brian Sessoms (Achilles) has left the program.

Sessoms redshirted his first year and then missed his second after suffering a season-ending Achilles injury over the summer in camp. The former three-star recruit has not specified what his plans for the immediate future are.

Stanford WR Michael Rector will play in the NFLPA all star game.

Rector is a true vertical threat with outstanding deep speed. However, that type of skill set can be limited in an offense like Stanford's. That was the case this season for Rector, catching 31 passes for 355 yards and three touchdowns on the year.

ECU QB Philip Nelson accepted an invitation to play in the NFLPA all star game.

Nelson originally signed with Minnesota out of high school before transferring to Rutgers in January of 2014. He was booted off the team in May after facing legal charges. Nelson then walked on to ECU in 2015 and won the starting this season, throwing 16 touchdowns compared to eight interceptions. He missed the final two games of the season.

Mississippi State WR Fred Ross accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

The Bulldogs' entire offense took a step back this season, but Ross remained the school's top target. Ross only registered three games of over 100 yards receiving but did haul in 12 touchdowns. The Senior Bowl receiver group is almost complete.
