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.

Bleacher Report's Brad Shepard projects Nebraska sophomore QB Adrian Martinez to be the top quarterback in the Big Ten in 2019.

Now this would be fun -- and necessary if the Cornhuskers are going to compete for a Big Ten title. Martinez put up solid numbers last year with a 17/8 TD ratio and eight rushing touchdowns, and flashes the brilliance that made him such a highly-recruited player in the 2018 class. Players like Brian Lewerke of Michigan State and Justin Fields at Ohio State -- if he gets the waiver -- could challenge, but Martinez has the talent to be at least among the best in the conference next year.

The Florida State recruiting department issued an apology for a tweet featuring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in a graphic.

The tweet -- which has been deleted -- featured a photo of Dr. King doing the tomahawk chop celebration with a Nike glove on his hand. "In our attempt to more closely connect the message to FSU, we foolishly posted a graphic that was not in line with our intent. We are sorry for missing the mark in our attempt to celebrate Dr. King's legacy," the apology reads. The message was hammered by those who saw it on social media, and justifiably so.

Uncommitted four-star 2019 RB Jerrion Ealy may need to decide between baseball and football.

Ealy is not only rated as one of the top prospects in the country on the gridiron -- he ranks 19th on ESPN's top 300 -- but he also could be a first-round pick as a baseball player coming out of Jackson Prep in Mississippi. A baseball team could elect to allow Ealy to play football at whatever school he lands at, but a team may not want to be burned the way the A's were (probably) burned by Kyler Murray. Ealy is expected to announce a commitment on Signing Day, with Clemson being the most likely landing spot.

Brett McMurphy reports that Louisiana will hire former Houston S coach LaMar Morgan to be the new CB coach.

Interestingly enough, Morgan is going to Louisiana to replace Zac Etheridge, who left the Ragin' Cajuns to be the new cornerbacks coach at: you guessed it, Houston. Morgan spent just one year with the Cougars, and prior to that stop, he spent two years with ULM as their corners coach. It's also a homecoming for the coach, as Morgan played at Louisiana from 2003-2007.

The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard projects the Seahawks to take Michigan DL Rashan Gary with their first-round pick in his latest mock draft.

Gary (6'5/287) was once projected as a top-three pick, but an inconsistent -- and injury-riddled -- junior season has seen his draft stock stagnate. The Seahawks got quality pass-rush from Frank Clark and Jarran Reed, but Seattle didn't get much pressure from anyone else, and Gary can get to the quarterback as either an interior rusher or from the edge. No one loves this ability more than Pete Carroll, so if he is on the board this long, we wouldn't be shocked to see him drafted here at all.

ESPN's Steve Wuench lists Stetson TE Donald Parham as a player whose stock can rise with a strong Senior Bowl.

This is an interesting tight end class, and one that could be even more intriguing if Parham (6'7/240) is legit. He posted an 85-1,319-13 line for the Hatters in 2019, so it won't be a question of production. "He's smooth transitioning upfield after the catch and is a long strider with good top-end speed," writes Wuench. "He's at his best working out of the slot. " The questions come from whether or not Parham can block, as he wasn't asked to do much of it at Stetson. As Wuench mentions, that's less of a concern now as tight ends aren't asked to block as much as they used to. We're excited to read the reports from Mobile.

Florida has hired Torrian Gray to be the new DB coach.

It's a return to the school for Gray, who spent the last two years in the NFL with Washington. He joined the Gators from Virginia Tech, and was/is considered one of the best developers of secondary talent at this level. It's a very strong get for the Gators, who lost defensive back coach Charlton Warren to Georgia.

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.

NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang predicts that Memphis DL Byron Cowart will start to "live up to the hype" at the Reese's Senior Bowl.

We can see it. Events like this -- and especially the combine -- are where athletes can shine, and Cowart is a heck of an athlete. Unfortunately, the former five-star recruit has not lived up to his ridiculous high school hype at Auburn or Maryland on the football field. Rang hears that Cowart is now up to a chiseled 290 pounds to go along with his 6-foot-4 height, and has "shown maturity and resiliency in re-building his reputation." There are going to be questions surrounding Cowart until he does it on the field, but there's no doubt he's going to intrigue scouts if he shows out in Mobile.

North Texas has added a home-and-home series with Baylor and Tulane.

All due respect to Tulane, but the big get here for NTU is the home-and-home with Baylor; it can be tough for smaller schools like this to get home games against bigger opponents. Both games will take place in 2028 and 2029. The Mean Green will get the Green Wave at home in 2028 and travel to New Orleans in 2029, while going vice versa with the Bears.

ESPN's Steve Wuench lists Arizona STate DT Renell Wren as one of the under-the-radar prospects who can see his stock rise with a strong showing at the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Wren didn't put up huge numbers in his time at Arizona State, but as Wuench notes, his tape suggests that he's a much more productive player than his statistics (three sacks in his career) suggest. Wuench notes that the 6-foot-6, 297-pound Wren is a versatile lineman who could play on a four or three-man front. He was ranked as the 76th best prospect by Jon Ledyard of NFL Draft Scout not long ago, so there's a real chance Wren can be a Day 2 pick with a strong Senior Bowl.

Walter Football's Charlie Campbell says that a General Manager anonymously told him that he believes Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray should play baseball.

The East-West Shrine Game practices took place at Tropicana Field, home of the Tampa Bay Rays. Campbell reportedly was told anonymously by that GM that this is the field Murray should be playing at, not the football field. He cites Murray's height (listed at 5'10/195) and the fact that you have to change your entire offense to suit him. We think that's bunk, but it's certainly something that will be spread around that could hurt Murray's draft stock.

ESPN's Todd McShay believes that Washington State QB Gardner Minshew is a Day 3 prospect at this point.

Minshew put up incredible numbers in his only season at Washington State, and he went from battling for the starting job to legitimate Heisman contender until his less-than-spectacular play against Washington in the Apple Cup. McShay notes that Minshew has plenty of confidence and energy, and he "he displays adequate arm strength and above-average accuracy on tape." The issue right now is that Minshew didn't get a chance to show off the ability to make those tight window throws he'll have to make in the NFL. "Scouts will want to see how the 6-foot-2, 220-pounder does under center with the timing of his drops and anticipating throws this week," McShay closes. "Right now, he is a Day 3 prospect."
