Stanford redshirt senior QB Keller Chryst will transfer as a graduate.

Chryst (6'5/236) began the 2017 season as starter for the Cardinal, but failed to spark the offense to any real degree -- four of his seven starts saw him throw for one or no touchdown passes -- before being supplanted by K.J. Costello in the middle of the campaign. Costello, entering his redshirt sophomore year in 2018, should have the starting job in Palo Alto on lock-down, making this a logical transfer by Chryst. As for where he might land for his final season of eligibility, USA Today's Dan Wolken forwards that Tennessee could be a program to watch.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Notre Dame has hired North Carolina DB coach Terry Joseph to serve as safeties coach.

Joseph was initially hired away from Texas A&M -- where he had spent the previous four campaigns -- by UNC last January. Moving onward to Notre Dame, now. Prior to his short time with the Aggies, he had stints on staff with Nebraska, Tennessee, Louisiana Tech, LSU and Washington State.

Draft Wire's Luke Easterling writes that UMass TE Adam Breneman possesses an "incredibl[y] high floor."

Easterling notes that while Breneman is not "the flashiest" tight end in this draft class, the 6-foot-5, 255-pounder is "[a] well-rounded prospect with ideal size and reliable hands." The analyst would like to see him step up during the Senior Bowl practice week upcoming and believes that a strong showing on that front could potentially jump him into the top tier of prospects at the position. Walter Football's Charlie Campbell currently stamps Breneman with a grade for Rds. 3-5.

Rivals recruiting analyst Nick Krueger predicts that uncommitted four-star 2018 S Cam Jones will sign with Nebraska.

Jones (6'2/187) had been committed to the Bruins during the fall, but reopened his recruitment after UCLA parted ways with HC Jim Mora. Krueger likes Nebraska for his pledge based in part on the optimism surrounding the program with Scott Frost now helming the ship. The analyst forwards Baylor and Ole Miss as two teams to watch beyond the Huskers. Jones ranks as Rivals' No. 23 safety prospect in the 2018 class.

Nevada received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 RB Toa Taua.

Taua (5'10/190) made his commitment during the Polynesian Bowl on Saturday. He strutted his stuff nicely in the contest, rushing for 41 yards -- tops in the contest -- and a pair of scores. While he's not a blink-and-you-miss him speedster, Taua is a bear to bring down in the open field and plays with a hard-charging downhill style. No dancing or hemming and hawing after taking the hand-off, here. While Taua currently projects as a running back for the collegiate level, he also has some upside as a safety or linebacker.

Draft Wire's Luke Easterling writes that a strong performance during the Senior Bowl practice week "should have [Indiana TE Ian Thomas] locked in as a Day 2 projection."

"With a solid frame that could still add some quality bulk, Thomas has the size and catch radius to frustrate opposing defenders," Easterling notes. The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Thomas is a physical nightmare in the passing game, particularly when matched up against linebackers and smaller corners. He posted a 25-376-5 receiving line during the 2017 season.

NC State four-star 2018 QB Devin Leary completed 7-of-8 passes for 70 yards in the Polynesian Bowl on Saturday.

Leary (6'2/185) showed off his big-time arm throughout the practice week and into game action, never more so than on Friday, when he fought Mother Nature itself to impress through wind and rain. While he's got the physical tools, Leary brings more to the field than just a strong arm. He's also smart, possesses on-point mechanics and has shown the ability to adjust his ball speed depending on what's called for. On the 247Sports composite board, the NC State signee slots in as the No. 15 pro-style quarterback in the 2018 class.

Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman reports that UCLA has hired Cal graduate assistant Ramsen Golpashin to serve in the same capacity.

Golpashin played on the offensive line at Oregon under Chip Kelly, making this something of a reunion. He's worked as a graduate assistant at Hawaii (2015), Oregon (2016) and Cal (2017 over the past three years. Now with UCLA, Golpashin will be helping out with the line under the watchful eye of Bruins OL coach Hank Fraley.

Rivals recruiting analyst Nick Krueger predicts that uncommitted four-star 2018 WR Josh Moore will sign with Oregon.

While at the Under Armour All-American Game earlier this month, Moore ticked off Alabama, Florida State, Oregon, Texas A&M, Texas and USC as the programs that most interested him. The 6-foot-1, 171-pounder had been committed to Nebraska up until early December. He backed off that pledge due in part to the coaching change from Mike Riley to Scott Frost. ESPN's Tom Luginbill has comped Moore to Ole Miss WR DeMarkus Lodge due to similarities in their smooth running styles.

Draft Wire's Luke Easterling writes that South Dakota State TE Dallas Goedert "has a chance to send his draft stock through the roof as the predraft process moves along."

"A strong week [at the Senior Bowl] could have him firmly planted in the debate for this year’s top tight end prospect," Easterling writes. The 6-foot-4, 260-pounder's an extremely athletic prospect and has the requisite size to withstand the rigors of NFL play. He was exceedingly prolific during the 2017 campaign, registering a 72-1111-7 receiving line for the season. Goedert's a probable Day 2 selection for the spring draft.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 QB Tanner McKee was named the Offensive MVP of Saturday's Polynesian Bowl.

McKee (6'6/220) completed 5-of-6 passes for 38 yards and a touchdown in the all-star bowl. His scoring pass came on a short out to L'Christian Smith, who proceeded to take the ball into the end zone from 19 yards out. While McKee is technically part of the 2018 class, he will be taking a two-year Mormon mission, meaning that he won't actually be available for game action until the 2020 season. Stanford, Texas A&M, Washington, USC and Alabama are all players for his signature come the first week of February. He's a unique quarterback prospect in that he has the build and arm of a pure pocket passer -- he's been comped to Drew Bledsoe in that aspect -- but can also shred as a runner -- he's been comped to Marcus Mariota in that aspect. McKee is the top uncommitted signal-caller still left on the board, sliding in at No. 71 overall on Rivals.

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah called Colorado RB Phillip Lindsay "one of the fastest players that competed [in the East-West Shrine Game]."

Jeremiah refers to Lindsay as the "ideal change-of-pace back." During Saturday's Shrine Game, the 5-foot-7, 185-pounder led all-comers with 51 yards rushing. He's going to be docked for his size during the evaluating process, but offers strong vision and some upside as a kick-return man. Lindsay will likely see interest on Day 3 of the draft this spring.

Football Scoop reports that Michigan assistant Ed Warinner is a candidate to join the Tennessee Titans' staff as offensive line coach.

Warinner was just brought onto staff by the Wolverines this week after spending the 2017 season serving as Minnesota's offensive line coach. Looks like he could potentially be on the move again, though at this juncture, he's just a name to watch for the Titans.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Ohio State co-OC/QB coach Ryan Day is considering taking the offensive-coordinating position for the Tennessee Titans.

Prior to spending the 2017 season with the Buckeyes, Day worked as quarterbacks coach for the 49ers (2016) and Eagles (2015). Both of those NFL gigs came under Chip Kelly. The Titans house QB Marcus Mariota and Day's experience with Kelly figures to be a major selling point, here, as the the Titans try to figure out just how best to use their franchise quarterback.

Miami junior CB Malek Young will undergo career-ending neck surgery.

Young (5'9/180) sustained the neck injury during the first quarter of the team's Orange Bowl loss to Wisconsin earlier this winter. It's a tough turn of events for the Hurricanes, as the former three-star recruit was really starting to come into his own. He earned All-ACC honorable mention for the 2017 season after posting 43 tackles, eight passes defended and a pair of interceptions. He started 10 games for the Hurricanes during the campaign. Michael Jackson, Trajan Bandy and Jhavonte Dean are the three lone scholarship corners remaining on roster. The Canes also have a pair of four-star cornerbacks incoming in December signees Al Blades Jr. and Gilbert Frierson, though it would probably be optimistic to expect immediate contributions out the gate from those talented youngsters.
