Uncommitted four-star L David Reese is visiting Michigan this weekend.

In addition to the Wolverines, Miami and Florida have both been nipping after Reese's pledge. Rivals recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy sees this battle coming down to Michigan and Miami, though he admits that it is somewhat difficult to peg the 6-foot-2, 210-pounder due to the fact that he has kept relatively quiet about the state of his recruitment. Rivals ranks Reese as the No. 12 inside linebacking prospect in the 2018 class.

Wisconsin received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 WR Taj Mustapha.

"His footwork is good, his hands are the size of a 6-foot-7 guy, he has huge mittens and he has worked on coordination, footwork, learning what defense are trying to do," said West Bloomfield HC Ron Bellamy. Because Mustapha (6'1/185) had been focused on baseball prior to truly taking to football, Bellamy believes that he is just scratching the surface of his potential. Scout.com ranks the wideout as the No. 2 receiving prospect in the state of Michigan for the 2018 cycle.

ESPN has exercised an option to extend their contract to broadcast BYU home games through the 2019 season.

The Worldwide Leader signed an eight-year broadcasting contract with BYU when the Cougars went independent in 2011. The exercising of the option in the contract ensures that the deal will play out to its conclusion. In a statement, BYU AD Tom Holmoe said, "ESPN has helped us along the way. They put us on TV every week. It's something really special, and I'm glad we're staying with them."

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. ranked Pitt redshirt junior T Brian O'Neill as the No. 4 underclassman draft prospect at his position.

After joining Pitt as a tight end, O'Neill (6'6/300) transitioned over to the offensive line in July of 2015. And he took to it like a duck to water, having started 25 consecutive games for the Panthers entering the 2017 campaign. He gained a small slice of fame after scoring a pair of touchdowns last season.

Rivals recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy predicts that four-star 2018 S Jamien Sherwood will commit to Auburn.

While Sherwood (6'2/190) once looked like he might end up committing to Miami, those winds might have shifted. Cassidy writes that Auburn "has made a strong play in recent weeks" and believes that "[t]he Tigers have a real chance of stealing the safety." During the offseason camp circuit, Cassidy and fellow analyst Woody Wommack noted that Sherwood "has a great frame and muscle that fills it out."

Oregon senior T Tyrell Crosby (foot) is hoping to be healthy come the start of August camp.

"I am still working up to be a full-go, right now I'm not 100 percent. Each day I just try and do more and more," Crosby said in the spring. A foot injury suffered against Nebraska in mid-September cost him the remainder of the past season. A healthy 2017 campaign will be important for the 6-foot-5, 310-pounder NFL aspirations -- ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. ranks him as the No. 5 senior draft prospect at tackle.

TCU received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 LB Ben Wilson.

Wilson (6'2/215) opted for the Horned Frogs over Cal, Washington State, Louisville, Arizona State, Vanderbilt and Utah. While high school numbers should be taken with a grain of salt, Wilson posted some eye-popping stats as a junior at Sumner Senior High (Washington), registering 201 tackles (16.0 for loss) and 8.5 sacks. Former NFLer Reggie Jones, who now works at Rise Football Academy, said of Wilson, "Fearless physicality and he's a true student of the game. His game is universal." Jones added the juicy note that he believes that the TCU commit has the potential to play in the NFL down the road.

Ole Miss and Troy will play each other to open the 2022 season.

The showdown will kick off on September 3, 2022 in Oxford, Mississippi. This will be just the second time Ole Miss and Troy have played -- in their one previous match-up, the Rebs came away with a 51-21 victory in 2013. Ole Miss now has their non-conference slate set for the 2022 season. Beyond their scheduled opener against Troy, they will take on Central Arkansas and Tulsa (home games) and Georgia Tech (road).

ESPN's Jake Trotter believes that Kansas junior WR Steven Sims Jr. could surpass 1,000 yards receiving this coming season.

"Whether Carter Stanley holds on to the quarterback job, or Peyton Bender beats him out, Sims should build on last year's breakout season," Trotter writes. "Especially with pass-first coordinator Doug Meacham now calling the plays." Sims (5'10/176) logged a sharp 72-859-7 receiving line last season. He put up four games of at least 100 yards.

Rivals recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy passes along that Florida and Miami are looking like the two frontrunners for the commitment of four-star 2018 T John Campbell.

"Campbell intends to announce a decision in July. And while he seemed destined for Florida for some time, there’s reason to think Miami is trending in the right direction for his commitment," Cassidy writes, adding, "the odds are certainly evening up in recent weeks." Campbell (6'5/290) ranks as Rivals' No. 124 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle.

Oklahoma received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 TE Austin Stogner.

While Sooners HC Lincoln Riley has already made headway with the 2018 recruiting class since taking over for Bob Stoops, Stogner (6'7/230) represents the program's first pledge for the 2019 cycle. Scout.com's Greg Powers writes of the newest baby Sooner, "He splits out more often than not, but shows good in-line skills and and shows good feet in the open field securing blocks on linebackers on the second level as an H-back." When the major recruiting outlets release their 2019 rankings, Stogner figures to be up there as one of the top tight end prospects in the class.

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. ranked Ohio State senior T Jamarco Jones as the No. 2 senior draft prospect at his position.

Only Notre Dame T Mike McGlinchey ranks higher among senior tackles in Kiper's early estimation. Jones (6'5/310) earned Second Team All-Big Ten recognition from the coaches and media in 2016, his first year as a starter. Waler Football's Charlie Campbell is a bit more conservative than Kiper when it comes to Jones, ranking him as the No. 11 draft-eligible tackle prospect. He sees him being drafted in the third or fourth round.

Auburn AD Jay Jacobs said that the program has been in conversation with UAB regarding a future match-up.

"We've had conversations with them. We'd love to play them again if we can work it out on the schedule, but finding a common date is often difficult to do some times," Jacobs said. UAB AD Mark Ingram went a step further, saying, "I think it will happen." The two teams have not played since 1996. UAB is reentering the football fray this coming season after shutting down the program in December of 2014.

ESPN's Tom Luginbill believes that Clemson four-star 2018 verbal ATH commit Kyler McMichael's highest ceiling will come at safety.

"McMichael is a smooth, natural athlete who transitions easily in space," Luginbill writes. "He attacks the ball in the air, has the explosiveness to take it the distance and is not afraid to mix it up in the run game." The analyst compares the 6-foot-1, 196-pounder to USC S Marvell Tell, noting that "[b]oth have ideal height, and eventually McMichael will fill out like Tell has. Both come from a background playing on both sides of the ball with good ball skills." McMichael ranks as ESPN's No. 118 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle.
Jun 23 - 5:32 PM

Rivals recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy predicts that uncommitted four-star 2018 DE Dennis Briggs will commit to Miami.

Briggs had previously indicated that he will be siding with one of Miami, Florida or Florida State. Cassidy writes that the 6-foot-4, 255-pounder "seems to have a particular shine for UM." Rivals ranks him as the No. 17 strongside defensive end prospect in the 2018 class. He has shown a consistent ability to hold his own in one-on-one match-ups during his high school career at Gateway High (Florida).
