Syracuse received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 RB Jawhar Jordan.

"I've got a great connection with the coaches and they've showed me a lot of love, which not only me but my family appreciated as well," Jordan told Scout.com. The 5-foot-10, 160-pounder ranks as the outlet's No. 6 running back prospect in the West. His main appeal comes in his speed -- Jordan has been clocked at 4.48 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He opted to commit to Syracuse over Iowa State, Arizona, Kansas and Rutgers.

TCU junior CB DeShawn Raymond will transfer.

Raymond was a four-star recruit for the 2015 cycle -- Scout.com ranked him as the No. 223 overall prospect in the class -- but his career with the Horned Frogs simply never took off. He recorded five tackles in 11 games as a special teams piece during the 2015 season and didn't play in a game during the past campaign. Now transferring out, the 6-foot-1, 188-pounder would be required to sit out the 2017 season if he moves on to another FBS outfit. In that case, he would have two years' eligibility remaining to his fair name starting in 2018.

UNLV senior WR Devonte Boyd did not participate in the team's spring game due to his continued recovery from a broken arm.

Boyd was sidelined near the end of the 2016 season after breaking his left forearm against Wyoming in November. He was a limited participant in spring practice, mostly focusing on running routes and such. While he indicated that he still feels some pain in his arm when he catches the football, Boyd is expected to be fully healthy come the start of August camp. The 6-foot-1, 175-pounder caught 45 passes for 746 yards and a quartet of touchdowns prior to going down injured in November.

ESPN's Sam Kahn Jr. writes that Vanderbilt freshman DE Dayo Odeyingbo might need to add weight before he is truly ready to see the field.

Kahn likes Odeyingbo as a potential early-impact freshman, but would like to see him pack on a bit of bulk to his 6-foot-5, 255-pound frame. That aside, the analyst thinks that the true frosh defensive end "has the athleticism [HC Derek] Mason wants to add on defense." Scout.com's Gabe Brooks noted last summer that so long as Odeyingbo takes advantage of the facilities offered by Vanderbilt, his "strength potential is through the roof."

Rivals recruiting analyst Woody Wommack predicted that uncommitted four-star 2018 LB Justice Tingle will commit to Louisville.

" To date, Louisville seems to have made the best impression, hosting Dingle for several trips and also returning the favor in the spring," Wommack explains. He sees Georgia Tech as another potential contender for the 6-foot-2, 235-pounder's pledge. Tingle ranks as Rivals' No. 219 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle.

Missouri freshman DT Akial Byers was able to sign on April 21 after working through academic issues.

Byers had been committed to Alabama back in January, but he was unable to enroll at the university due to academics and actually signed with Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in February. He evidently shored up the school side of the equation, as he landed with Missouri two months later. And it could be a grand get for the Tigers. ESPN's Sam Kahn Jr. writes that the 6-foot-4, 256-pounder "has the type of ability that could allow him to contribute quickly." ESPN ranked him as the No. 151 prospect in the 2017 cycle -- making him Mizzou's highest ranking player in their 2017 class. Kahn colleague Craig Haubert believes he has a similar developmental ceiling to Jonathan Allen.

UNLV junior WR Brandon Presley (foot) was a healthy participant in practice this spring.

Presley broke his foot against Jackson State in the Rebels' season-opener last September, but per the Las Vegas Review-Journal's Gilbert Manzano, the 6-foot, 180-pounder "knifed his way up field on slant routes, turned quick screens into first downs and [went] deep for touchdowns" during spring practice while showing no signs of hesitance when it came to his foot. Presley will be mixing it up with fellow wideouts Kendal Keys and Devonte Boyd during the coming season.

Rivals recruiting analyst Woody Wommack believes that uncommitted four-star WR Kamryn Babb will commit to Ohio State.

"The Buckeyes have made Babb a priority, and Urban Meyer’s track record of closing on wide receivers from out of state in recent years has been impressive," Wommack writes. He additionally forwards that Oklahoma -- who just offered to Babb -- could also be in the thick of this thing down to the wire. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Babb was a standout performer at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in St. Louis over the weekend and "looked nearly uncoverable" during 1-on-1 drills, according to Wommack and fellow Rivals analysts Rob Cassidy and Chad Simmons. In addition to Ohio State and Oklahoma, keep an eye on LSU, Alabama and Ole Miss -- Babb is planning to visit all three programs this summer.

TCU freshman WR Jalen Reagor won the gold medal in the Texas state long jump with a leap of 24 feet, five inches.

Reagor was a three-star recruit for the 2017 cycle, but is also a track standout, as evidenced by his gold medal jump. He had actually bested that 24-5 mark with a jump of 26 feet in an earlier meet. The 6-foot, 189-pounder is hoping that he can make an immediate impact on the football field, saying earlier this spring, ""I like to compete and I’m a playmaker. If you can play, you should put the best eleven on the field." ESPN's Jake Trotter would not be surprised if he made a name for himself early on, as the 6-foot, 189-pounder has the athletic chops to potentially develop into a No. 1 wideout down the road.

ESPN's Sam Kahn Jr. pegged Kentucky freshman WR Lynn Bowden as having the potential to push his way onto the field in 2017.

"He can play multiple positions and could see some time at both receiver and Wildcat quarterback," Kahn wrote. Over at Saturday Down South, William McFadden offers a bold word on the 6-foot-1, 185-pound Bowden, forwarding the opinion that he "might be the most versatile [playmaker] they’ve had since Randall Cobb." Kentucky HC Mark Stoops has referred to Bowden as "one of the most explosive high school athletes we've signed at Kentucky." In addition to wideout and quarterback, Stoops has also floated the possibility of getting Bowden reps at running back.

Rivals recruiting analyst Woody Wommack predicted that uncommitted four-star 2018 CB Jaylon King will commit to Ole Miss.

"The Rebels were one of the first programs to offer and have the chance to provide King a quick path to playing time," Wommack writes. While King ranks as Rivals' No. 223 overall prospect, his recruitment to date has been somewhat fractured, as he was largely unable to participate in the offseason camp circuit last year due to various minor injuries. Also setting him back, he spent the 2016 season at quarterback for Ensworth High (Tennessee). His potential comes as a corner, though, making this current summer/spring camp stretch a pivotal one as he tries to show out at his natural position.

Baylor senior basketball forward Ish Wainright has joined the football team as a tight end.

"He came to me and said ‘I can play in the game, I know what I’m doing,’" HC Matt Rhule explained, later adding that the 6-foot-5, 235-pound Wainright possesses "great hands." The senior's last taste of football came during his freshman year in high school, but he said that the game is his "first love." Wainright caught a touchdown pass in the team's spring game after joining the Bears football team in the final week of spring practice. Wainright joins a tight end group consisting of Jordan Feuerbacher, Jayson Clements and Sam Tecklenburg. Given his long layoff from the game, a quick acclimation in August camp would greatly help his chances of seeing targets during the 2017 season.

Rivals recruiting analyst Woody Wommack believes that uncommitted four-star 2018 ATH Houston Griffith will commit to Notre Dame.

"Florida State, Nebraska, Notre Dame and Ohio State are all heavily in the mix, and [Griffith is] planning on taking a number of visits this summer before trimming his list heading into the fall," Wommack writes, adding that the 6-foot, 185-pounder "seems like a good culture fit in South Bend and has spoken highly of the Irish on several occasions." Rivals ranks Griffith as the No. 42 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle. During the Adidas East Coast Invitational earlier this offseason, Wommack and colleague Rob Cassidy referred to him as "one of the more physically imposing players," one who "looked like a college-ready prospect."

North Carolina awarded HC Larry Fedora a contract extension through the 2022 season.

"Under his leadership, our student-athletes are succeeding in the classroom, contributing positively to our community – and competing for championships," said AD Bubba Cunningham in a statement. Fedora's new deal will pay him $2.29 million for the coming season. He is set to make $3 million in each of the final three years of his extension. Fedora has guided the Tar Heels to a 40-25 overall record during his five years at the helm of the ship.
