Iowa State redshirt junior QB Jacob Park will transfer from the Cyclones.

In an interview with the Des Moines Register, Park announced that he asked for his release from the school so that he can transfer. The redshirt junior started the year as the Iowa State starting signal-caller, but some personal struggles along with a failed drug test caused him to take a leave of absence from the Club. The paper also says that Cyclones coach Matt Campbell will honor his request. Assuming he doesn't go to the FCS level, Park will have to sit out one year before being eligible to play at the FBS level. With Park gone, Zeb Noland becomes the favorite to win the quarterback job in 2018.

NC State senior H-Back Jaylen Samuels accepted an invitation to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Samuels (5'11/236) has been considered one of the more versatile players in college football, as he has the ability to play fullback, tight end, and has even been able to take some carries. He has one of the best catch-rates according to Pro Football Focus; so really the only question is what he'll be at the next level. He currently has anywhere from second-to-fourth round grades associated with him, so a strong Senior Bowl showing will go a long way towards him going closer to the former.

Arizona Western CC WR Jaron Woodyard has verbally committed to play at Nebraska.

Woodyard (5'11/180) was rated the No. 2 JUCO wideout in the country and a four-star recruit by ESPN. He chooses Nebraska after taking visits to Maryland, Syracuse and UCF; the latter being current Huskers coach Scott Frost's former club. Reports say he's athletic and a quality route-runner, but needs to work on making players miss at the next level. He could be in line for immediate playing time coming from the two-year college.

Oregon Senior T Tyrell Crosby was the highest rated pass-blocker in the Pac-12, according to Pro Football Focus.

Per PFF, the Ducks actually finished with the top two pass blockers, as Calvin Throckmorton was ranked just behind Crosby (6/5/310). Crosby was also one of the top rated run-blockers in the country, and if you ask us, that's a pretty good combination. Crosby will next be seen in the Las Vegas Bowl, and then he'll have a chance to really improve his draft stock with a strong showing in the Senior Bowl.

Ohio State senior edge rusher Jalyn Holmes has accepted an invite to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Holmes (6'5/270) hasn't put up big numbers at Ohio State, but he's always flashed his athleticism and currently is viewed as a potential day-two selection in the 2018 NFL Draft. It'll be up to Holmes to stand out at the event to show he's not just a raw prospect who needs significant development before he's capable of playing at the next level.

Notre Dame redshirt senior TE Durham Smythe has accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Smythe has shown the ability to make plays as a receiver, but his best path to the NFL is his ability to block. The six-foot-six, 255-pound tight end did have a career best 18 yards per catch, and he scored four touchdowns in 2016. Draft Analyst's Durham Smythe currently projects the senior tight end to go in the sixth or seventh round.

Four-star safety prospect C.J. Smith has verbally committed to play at Nebraska.

Smith (6'2/193) chooses the Cornhuskers over offers from teams like Oklahoma, Ole Miss, South Carolina and Alabama, just to name a few. He was an ESPN 300 recruit, and ranked 19th among all safeties on the list. Scouting reports cite his strengths being his height and length, and ability to close on the football with athleticism.
Dec 11 - 9:21 PM

Oklahoma State senior WR James Washington accepted an invitation to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Washington was the Biletnikoff award winner as the top receiver in the country, and hauled in 69 passes for 1,423 yards with 12 touchdowns to boot. Most analysts currently have him going in the late first, early second portion of the draft, so a strong showing at the Senior Bowl could see him become one of the top wideouts selected in spring.

Four-star G Trey Hill announced his verbal commitment to play at Georgia Monday.

Hill (6'4/346) chose to attend Georgia over Auburn, Florida and Florida State. He's ranked the top guard prospect in the country by ESPN, and second by 247 Sports. He clearly has the size to be a powerful run blocker, but scouting reports also dictate that he's a capable pass blocker and offers a "strong punch." He's another impressive commit for one of the top classes in the country.
Dec 11 - 8:31 PM

Army senior T Brett Toth has accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Toth (6'6/305) and the Army offensive line was able to help Army run for more yards than any team in the country, and Toth was rated the fifth-best run blocking tackle by Pro Football Focus. Service academy players don't generally end up in the NFL, but we've seen recent examples of them playing at the highest level, including Pittsburgh Steeler starting tackle Alejandro Villanueva.
Dec 11 - 8:21 PM

Four-star CB recruit Tariq Bracy has verbally committed to play at Notre Dame.

Bracy (5'11/192) chose the Irish over offers at Washington State, Utah, and Cal, among others. He ran a 4.56 40 this spring, and he should be allowed to get stronger and faster while using a redshirt season thanks to Notre Dame's depth and youth at the defensive back position.
Dec 11 - 8:13 PM

UTEP senior G Will Hernandez has accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

If you ever need proof that there can be NFL talent on really bad football teams, here ya go. The Miners went 0-12 in 2017, but Hernandez (6'3/330) was still able to show on tape that he's one of the very best guard prospects in the country. He's currently projected to go somewhere in second-to-third round range, but we've seen offensive lineman dominate at events like this and improve his stock substantially. Hernandez could be one of those players.
Dec 11 - 7:56 PM

UTSA senior DB Devron Davis ranks 25th on Luke Easterling's cornerback rankings.

Davis (6'1/210) is a former Colorado State commit who started the last two years for the Roadrunners, and his impressive size and speed have begun to go noticed by draft analysts. He intercepted two passes in 2017 -- one returned for a touchdown -- and also had four tackles for loss. Scouting reports rave about his instincts, and also note his competitive toughness. Over the spring, Davis was laser-timed at a 4.48 40-yard dash. He hasn’t yet received an invite to a postseason all-star game, but we’d assume the NFLPA Bowl will give him a look.

Boston College junior edge rusher Zach Allen ended up with 42 stops in 2017, the most of any FBS edge rusher on the season.

Allen (6'4/280) reportedly has made the decision not to enter the 2017 draft, but if he were to enter, he'd likely be one of the first defensive ends off the board. Not only has excelled against the run, he also has three sacks and 14.5 tackles for loss for the Eagles in 2017. Assuming he doesn't enter, he'll rank near the top of edge rushers in the 2018 class.
Dec 11 - 7:40 PM

Wisconsin senior TE Troy Fumagalli accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Fumagalli (6'6/248) got off to a roaring star in 2017 -- scoring touchdowns in the first three games -- but was mostly quiet in the remaining games as the Badgers relied on the run game. That's part of the appeal of the senior tight end, however, as he's one of the better blockers in the class at the position. He's currently projected as someone who will go in the third-to-fifth round in the 2018 NFL Draft.
