Hawaii junior DE Jamie Tago was suspended for spring practice due to a violation of team rules.

No further information is available as to just what Tago did to draw the suspension or when he could potentially rejoin the team. The 6-foot-3, 260-pounder has had himself a long and winding road of a career with the Warriors. Initially, he joined the team as part of the 2014 recruiting cycle. He left last spring due to an issue unrelated to football, subsequently dropping to the JUCO ranks before signing (again) with Hawaii as part of the 2017 recruiting class.

ESPN's Sam Kahn Jr. writes that Texas A&M freshman WR Jhamon Ausbon "looks like he has a good chance to start and contribute right away."

"During spring football he was a quality performer, showing off his athleticism and ability to go get the football, aided by his good size (6-2, 220 pounds)," Kahn notes. With Speedy Noil, Josh Reynolds and Ricky Seals-Jones all no longer on the team, there will be ample opportunities for a player like Ausbon if he can capitalize. He ranked as a four-star recruit out of high school for the 2017 cycle.

Rivals recruiting analysts Rob Cassidy and Woody Wommack singled out uncommitted four-star 2019 WR Trey Knox as a standout performer during the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in St. Louis.

"Knox was strong was start to finish. He plucked the ball out of the air and he was tough to stay with," wrote the pair of analysts. "What stood out as much as anything was his agility and burst of speed at his size." Knox measures a hulking 6-foot-5, 218 pounds -- and is just now entering his junior year at Blackman High (Tennessee). Per Cassidy and Wommack, Florida and Ohio State are two teams to watch for the commitment, though there is still plenty of time for others to make hard pushes for the big wideout.

SEC Country's Shehan Jeyarajah called Kentucky junior LB Josh Allen "perhaps the most versatile linebacker" on the team.

"(Fellow linebacker) Denzil Ware will be the big name, but Ware’s production will be based on whether Allen can create havoc on the other side of the field," Jeyarajah writes. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Allen started out his Kentucky career quietly enough, recording just four tackles as a true freshman in 2015, but blossomed this past season while registering 62 tackles (8.5 for loss), seven sacks and a hearty four fumbles forced. He saw time in all 13 of Kentucky's games, including nine starts.

ESPN's Sam Kahn Jr. notes that Auburn coaches believe that freshman T Calvin Ashley will compete for a starting job in August camp.

Ashley was not an early enrollee, so there is still some work to do to secure a starting gig. Still, it looks like the 6-foot-7, 330-pounder -- a five-star recruit for the 2017 cycle -- will be getting into the fray relatively early assuming he holds his own in August camp. As for where he will fit on the Tigers' line, Kahn believes that he will either be competing for the open spot at right tackle or that he could stick on the left side, pushing 2016 starting left tackle Darius James over to RT.

Arkansas three-star 2018 verbal QB commit Connor Noland was named the quarterback MVP at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in St. Louis over the weekend.

"Noland was singled out by both coaches and his fellow competitors as a guy who impressed, and he was consistently sharp from drills to one-on-ones," wrote Rivals analysts Rob Cassidy and Woody Wommack. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Noland ranks as the outlet's No. 11 pro-style quarterback in the 2018 cycle. He initially committed to Arkansas last July. ESPN -- who gives him four-star respect while landing him at No. 232 on their master list -- refers to him as a "smart, polished passer."

SEC Country's Shehan Jeyarajah writes that Georgia junior T D'Marcus Hayes "seems a lock to start."

"Hayes’ readiness will be critical to whether Georgia takes a step towards competing for the SEC East," notes Jeyarajah, who believes that Georgia's line is still transitioning over to Kirby Smart's power-run schemes on the offensive line. Hayes, 6-foot-5, 325 pounds, was the No. 11 JUCO prospect by ESPN metrics during the 2017 cycle.

Auburn OC Chip Lindsey said that senior WR John Franklin III will serve as an emergency quarterback this coming season.

Franklin transitioned over to wide receiver this spring, but with backup quarterbacks Tyler Queen and Woody Barrett both transferring out, Auburn's depth at the position behind Jarrett Stidham and Sean White has thinned out considerably. Said Lindsey of Franklin as a backup option, "He's done it his whole life, so I think he could definitely do that if we needed him to, for sure." The 6-foot, 183-pounder initially joined Auburn out of the JUCO ranks as a quarterback, but was unable to beat out Sean White for starting honors last year and looked to be behind both Stidham and White in terms of the team's competition for 2017 starting honors, hence his shift to wide receiver.

Ball State sophomore transfer WR Damon Hazelton has enrolled at Virginia Tech.

He can practice with the team in 2017 but will be sidelined for games until 2018. Hazelton starred as a freshman, catching 51 passes for 505 yards and four touchdowns. This is an uncommon transfer, as Hazelton is jumping up in status, but he likely has the talent to warrant the decision.

ESPN's Jake Trotter believes freshman WR Jalen Reagor could turn into TCU's go-to option sooner than later.

Head coach Gary Patterson apparently has been pleading for a No. 1 option, something TCU missed last season after Josh Doctson departed. Reagor is obviously different than Doctson's game, but he could be fed early.

ESPN's Jake Trotter believes QB Sam Ehlinger is the primary backup at worst, and might even challenge for the starting lineup.

Shane Buechele started as a freshman and played at a very high level considering he was thrown into the fire. His skill set fits Texas' offensive style, in terms of extremely spread out receivers with quick passes near the line of scrimmage or immediate vertical shots in one on one situations. Still, some who follow the team seem to be very interested in Ehlinger.

Graduate transfer CB Shaq Wiggins is reportedly visiting Mississippi State after declaring to Tennessee, according to Mike Griffith.

Wiggins declared his commitment to Tennessee in late April, but his connection to Mississippi State defensive coordinator Todd Grantham is evident. Wiggins played for the coach at Georgia and again at Louisville. Wiggins has a good chance to compete for a starting job at Tennessee, but we will see how this plays out.

Kansas HC David Beaty raved about freshman LB Kyron Johnson's speed this spring.

Johnson, a three-star recruit in the last cycle, is an undersized linebacker with cornerback speed (reported 4.41 forty). The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder "is an athletic player with good range and ... versatility ... [who could] impact early on special teams due to his play traits," ESPN noted in a scouting report. ESPN's Jake Trotter added: "The combination of that speed and Johnson's ability to deliver big hits could earn him immediate time on the field."

Former Oregon redshirt senior RB Thomas Tyner (shoulder) transferred to Oregon State as a graduate.

Tyner announced his medical retirement from the sport in February 2016 following debilitating injuries to both of his shoulders. The former five-star prospect now wants to return to the field, and he hopes to do so for Oregon's archrival. The 5-foot-11, 201-pound Tyner, a speedster who once ran a 4.28-second forty, rushed for 1,284 yards and 14 touchdowns across two seasons with the Ducks. He hasn't played since 2014 and must be cleared by the NCAA. But if healthy and eligible, Tyner will make for a strong No. 2 change-of-pace back behind the thundering Ryan "Wrecking" Nall.
