Texas four-star 2017 verbal DE commit LaGaryonn Carson said that he wants to attend three games this season.

Doesn't sound as though Carson is wobbling in his commitment in the slightest. Actually, the opposite. He does not plan on visiting another university and indicated that he hopes to attend at least three Longhorn games this season, including the season-opener against Notre Dame. "I’m just ready to go out there and watch them play their butt off, because I’m ready to be part of the team," he said. The 6-foot-5, 255-pounder ranks as Rivals' No. 147 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle.

North Dakota State redshirt senior RB King Frazier scored the game-winning touchdown in Saturday's 24-17 OT win over Charleston Southern.

"They had done a great job of bottling us up inside and we told King if there's nothing there, take it outside and bounce it and he did a great job," said HC Chris Klieman of the 6-foot, 220-pounder's 25-yard touchdown run on the first possession of overtime. Frazier, who transferred from Nebraska after the conclusion of his redshirt freshman season for the Cornhuskers in 2013, finished the game with 79 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries.

Florida HC Jim McElwain has been impressed with the rapid acclimation of freshman WR Freddie Swain.

"[Swain]’s come up with some really big catches. Still working on that focus and consistency that all young guys deal with a little bit," McElwain said, "but I really think I credit his development to what he was able to do during [the] spring." The 6-foot, 185-pounder was a four-star recruit out of high school, No. 208 on the ESPN 300. "And his grasp on what we’re trying to accomplish and the reason why you need to be somewhere when you’re at depth of routes or splits or whatever that is, his comfort really shows that he’s able to play a lot faster," McElwain said. Swain isn't a must-add on the waiver wire, but he is one to keep an eye on as Florida looks to iron out its receiving corps behind No. 1 WR Antonio Callaway.

Mississippi State senior DT Nick James was arrested early on Sunday morning.

Oktibbeha County chief deputy Chadd Garnett has confirmed with The Clarion-Ledger that James was arrested, but declined to offer further details. Mississippi State is aware of the incident and is in the process of gathering more information. One report from the Starkville Daily News has the 6-foot-4, 330-pounder being arrested for public intoxication, but that has yet to be confirmed by the authorities. Regardless of the circumstance, this is the fourth time that James has been arrested in his three-plus years with the Bulldogs. James, a former four-star recruit, was a 10-game starter in 2015 and recorded 26 tackles and a forced fumble.

Penn State sophomore RB Saquon Barkley said, "I’m not OK with having someone be[ing] better than me. That’s what I strive for."

"Personally, I feel like I have a lot to go. Christian McCaffrey was at the Heisman ceremony and Leonard Fournette was probably at the top of the Heisman race for the majority of the season," Barkley said, adding that he "wasn’t satisfied with last year." The 5-foot-11, 222-pounder rushed for 1,076 yards (5.9 YPC) and seven touchdowns as a true freshman in 2015. In terms of fantasy, he is a dynamic dynasty-league prospect due to the fact that he will not be draft-eligible until after the 2017 season.

Nebraska received a verbal commitment from three-star 2017 TE Reese Leitao.

"I'm hoping to visit [again] early September for a game possibly against Oregon," Leitao said. He explained that he wants to further his bonds with Mike Riley's coaching staff. The 6-foot-4, 236-pounder was seriously weighing offers from Penn State, Maryland and Oklahoma State before he ultimately decided to join the Cornhusker cause.

Uncommitted five-star 2017 CB Lamont Wade is planning to make at least seven unofficial and official visits this autumn.

Wade had best be keeping on top of his homework, as his proposed schedule is daunting. On the unofficial visit front, the 5-foot-9, 192-pound corner is shooting to check out contests between Tennessee/Appalachian State this Thursday, West Virginia/Missouri on Saturday, Pittsburgh/Penn State on September 10 and Penn State/Temple on September 17. Meanwhile, he is also beginning to lock in his official visits, with UCLA/USC the lone official set in stone. He is also interested in potential officials to Penn State, Ohio State and Tennessee. Wade is set to make his commitment on December 16 and stands proudly as Rivals' No. 10 overall prospect in the 2017 class.

Georgia HC Kirby Smart indicated that junior RB Sony Michel (arm) could be a game-time decision for the season-opener against North Carolina next Saturday.

"I’ve got great confidence in Sony, and Sony’s worked really hard to get in shape. So the reports not being favorable, I don’t know if that’s accurate," Smart said on the Paul Finebaum Show. "The kid’s out there doing everything that he’s been cleared to do, it’s just that he hasn’t been cleared to do everything." Michel fractured his arm in an ATV mishap over the Fourth of July weekend. If Georgia can keep Michel and Nick Chubb (knee) healthy, they will be boasting one of the better running games in the country this coming season.

Former Baylor redshirt senior RB Devin Chafin is now playing for Missouri Southern State.

Chafin was dismissed at the beginning of June for a myriad of off-field issues, including an arrest for marijuana possession and allegations from a former girlfriend that he assaulted her multiple times. The 6-foot, 225-pounder rushed for 585 yards and nine touchdowns last season.

UNLV junior WR Kendal Keys will miss the 2016 season after undergoing surgery to repair a lateral meniscus tear in his right knee.

Keys suffered the season-ending blow during practice earlier in the week. Said HC Tony Sanchez, "He’s a great player. You don’t have a lot of big 6-foot-4, 200-pound wide receivers. You miss him. Other guys are going to have to pick up the slack." A year ago, Keys registered 24 catches for 310 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Sophomore wideout Brandon Presley will start in his place. UNLV kicks off against Jackson State on Thursday.

CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang noted that Stanford junior RB Christian McCaffrey is "quick to the hole and even faster through it and into the second level."

"McCaffrey possesses extraordinary agility and burst for a man with his rock-solid 6-foot, 202 pound frame," Rang writes, "making tackling him in the open field a nightmare." The analyst calls the Stanford standout "surprisingly powerful, showing impressive leg drive and determination to twist his way through would-be tacklers." Last season, McCaffrey crumpled the record books to the tune of 3,864 all-purpose yards. Rang relays that NFL scouts are "eager to see how he'll handle a second season with this kind of work load" after totaling 437 touches over the course of the 2015 season.

Tulane named redshirt sophomore QB Glen Cuiellette the starter for 2016.

In naming him the starter, Green Wave HC Willie Fritz cited Cuiellette's experience and "command of the offense." For his part, the 6-foot, 215-pound Cuiellette explained that "[t]here's a slight relief [to being named the starter], but overall the way I feel is that this is just the beginning." While he appeared in just one game last season and did not attempt a pass, ESPN graded him as a three-star recruit for the 2014 cycle.

Dawg Nation's Seth Emerson relays that Georgia freshman QB Jacob Eason is in line to start against North Carolina on September 3.

Per Emerson, Eason has been taking the majority of first-team snaps over the past week. Emerson writes that "[i]ndications prior to the scrimmage [on Saturday] were the job was Eason’s to lose," though he does note the possibility that Greyson Lambert could start against UNC with Eason coming off the bench. HC Kirby Smart could settle the issue during his Monday presser, assuming he actually wants to publicly settle the issue. Just to rehash the 6-foot-5, 207-pound Eason's pedigree, the true freshman ranked as Rivals' No. 7 overall prospect for 2017.

North Dakota State sophomore QB Easton Stick completed 17-of-27 passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 24-17 OT win over Charleston Southern.

No interceptions for Stick, who has now officially slid into the offensive driver's seat previously occupied by Carson Wentz. While his performance doesn't necessarily jump off the stat sheet, the 6-foot-2, 200-pounder made several clutch throws, including just about the most perfect pass you will ever see. On his 48-yard touchdown toss to RJ Urzendowski in the fourth quarter, Stick showed off an impressive amount of nuance and subtlety, lofting the ball high enough that it probably came down with a touch of snow as it landed softly in Urzendowski's arms in the end zone. The opposing corner was running almost step-for-step with Urzendowski, but no matter for Stick. The Bison would go on to win in overtime on a 25-yard touchdown dash by RB King Frazier, a transfer from Nebraska. Thus begins North Dakota State's quest to win their sixth consecutive FCS title.

Alabama and Ohio State hold Rivals' No. 1 and No. 2 recruiting classes for 2017, respectively.

"It’s hard to blame anybody that has lost count of how many times Alabama has won the team rankings title (five times since 2010 for those keeping track)," wrote Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman, "and the Crimson Tide is in great position to do it again this year." Alabama has reeled in commitments from four five-star recruits and 13 of the four-star species. As for Ohio State, they hold pledges from four five-star prospects and 11 four-stars. Friedman notes that if HC Urban Meyer's collection of baby Buckeyes nets him a No. 1 recruiting class on Rivals after National Signing Day, it would mark the first time he has ever secured that belt.
