Four-star 2017 G T.J. Moore will visit either Notre Dame or Alabama on June 18.

American geography will prevent Moore from visiting both schools on that day. Right now, the 6-foot-4, 270-pounder's list is topped by Virginia Tech, Tennessee, North Carolina, N.C. State, and South Carolina. He is planning for official visits to Tennessee and Kansas State, with Oregon, UCLA and Florida State lurking as other potential options. Moore ranks as Rivals' No. 167 prospect for the 2017 cycle.

The Roanoke Times' Andy Bitter relays that Virginia Tech HC Justin Fuente will take a "wait-and-see" attitude toward the indefinite suspensions of sophomore S Adonis Alexander and redshirt freshman DE Houshun Gaines.

Per Bitter, Fuente is stepping aside by degrees to allow the legal process to take its natural course with Alexander and Gaines. The pair were arrested for marijuana possession in late April. Both young men face misdemeanor possession charges on that front, while Alexander has been additionally charged with possession of alcohol. Fuente will reevaluate the situation once the dust clears. Alexander registered 55 tackles and four interceptions in 2015 and was expected to start this coming season.

College Football Focus named Louisiana Tech QB Jeff Driskel the 2015 National Transfer of the Year.

Driskel transferred to Louisiana Tech from Florida after the 2014 season and revitalized his career in the process. In his lone campaign with the Bulldogs, the 6-foot-4, 234-pound gunslinger threw for 4,026 yards (62.4% completions) with a 27/8 TD/INT ratio. That strong work pushed him onto the draft radar and the Ravens subsequently selected him in the sixth round of April's draft.

Following a reported 15-year, $280 million contract agreement between UCLA and Under Armour, sophomore QB Josh Rosen posted on Instagram "we're still amateurs though."

Rosen included a graph of the largest college football contracts from outside companies such as Under Armour and then captioned it with his comment on amateurism. He also wrote, "Gotta love non-profits #NCAA." The 6-foot-5, 210-pounder has proven to be an interesting cat since joining the Bruins. In addition to these comments on NCAA hypocrisy, Rosen made waves in April by wearing a "F*** Trump" hat on one of Donald Trump's golf courses. It was enough that HC Jim Mora addressed the hat publicly, cautioning that the gesture was more in the line of Johnny Manziel than Tom Brady. Comparing Rosen's relatively docile political statement (of sorts) to Manziel's flawed cauldron of traits is a bridge too far, but Mora has been pushing for Rosen to start thinking like an NFL quarterback and little etiquette lessons are part of that game.

Scout.com national recruiting analyst Greg Biggins believes that five-star 2017 WR Tyjon Lindsey "might be the most dangerous player in the country after the catch."

Biggins called Lindsey an "explosive player with great hands and route-running ability," noting that the 5-foot-9, 175-pound receiver was "the top receiver in every event we saw him at, including the Opening Regional Los Angeles and multiple 7-on-7 events." He has logged unofficial visits to Ohio State, Nebraska and USC over the last few months. An official visit to the Buckeyes will be in the cards this autumn. Lindsey is intrigued by Ohio State's ability to pump talent into the NFL.

Rutgers HC Chris Ash visited the Patriots as part of a professional development tour.

"There's been a lot of former players at Rutgers go through [the Patriots'] organization so any time I get an opportunity to go visit with somebody that's had success," Ash said, "I'm going to take advantage of it." Pats HC Bill Belichick was not around when Rutgers' new head honcho came calling, but Ash did have a chance to meet with several assistant coaches. "It's like anything else, you just go and you talk to them. Ask questions about stuff. It's just professional development that everybody does," Ash explained. He plans on visiting other NFL teams this summer. Rutgers is coming off a 4-8 season, one which eventually led to the downfall of Kyle Flood and ascension of Ash to his former throne.

Four-star 2018 QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson received an offer from Michigan State.

"It's a really big offer for me personally with the success they've had putting QBs in the league and stuff," Thompson-Robinson said. "They will definitely be in consideration when I make my decision." The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder has drawn additional offers from Colorado, Colorado State, Hawaii, Missouri and UNLV. Don't expect a commitment to come any time soon.

Four-star 2017 CB Chevin Calloway will visit LSU, Auburn and Ole Miss this summer.

Of LSU, Calloway said, "DBU for sure and that’s something that’s kind of opened up my eyes when it comes to LSU." The 5-foot-10, 180-pounder was particularly complimentary of Tigers DB coach Corey Raymond. He also likes the scrappy approach of Ole Miss, saying, "I wanna play for a team that brings the dog out in me." Baylor and TCU could also see visits from Rivals' No. 82 recruit this summer. Calloway told Rivals that he hopes to make a commitment before he begins his senior season at Bishop Dunne.

Horns Digest's Chip Brown reports that the Baylor board of regents has fired school president Ken Starr.

It appears that HC Art Briles will not be receiving the axe here. As one source close to the situation told Horns Digest, "The feeling is if the board got rid of Art (Briles), they'd be sitting in a $300 million mausoleum instead of that new football stadium." The outlet hears that senior vice president of operations and chief financial officer Reagan Ramsower is the leading candidate to replace Starr. Ramsower also oversees campus law enforcement. A mid-May Outside the Lines story about additional, unreported incidents of assault by football players -- coupled with multiple documented cases of sexual assault by players and a Title IX lawsuit -- ultimately led to Starr's fate.

ESPN's Darren Rovell reports that UCLA and Under Armour have reached agreement on a 15-year, $280 million contract.

If Rovell's numbers are accurate here, it would mark the largest such contract in college football history. Ohio State previously held that distinction, having signed a 15-year, $252 million deal with Nike in January. Adidas has backed UCLA since 1999. Jim Mora and Josh Rosen won't be thinking about the university's mega-deal with Under Armour when the Bruins kick off against Texas A&M on September 3, but it is an additional spotlight on a team that figures to draw its share of preseason hype.

Former Miami senior FB Walter Tucker made a post on Instagram that alluded to a transfer to Florida International.

This is not official yet, but Tucker strongly hinted that a transfer to the Golden Panthers was in order -- the Instagram post contained a picture of the 6-foot, 225-pounder superimposed over the backdrop of FIU's stadium. "God gave me a second chance to play the sport I love and to be honest I have to give God all the glory for helping me with this decision!" Tucker wrote. He was mainly a special teams contributor with the Hurricanes. Per the Palm Beach Post, it is not yet known if Tucker has graduated. If so, he would be eligible to play immediately at Florida International. If not, he will have to sit out a year. Stay tuned on all fronts.

Utah senior TE Evan Moeai has been granted a fifth season of eligibility and will play for the Utes in 2016.

Moeai started the opening game of the season, caught one pass in the first five snaps, and then suffered a season ending injury to his lower leg. The Utes' offense will have a different look this season with super productive running back Devontae Booker departing for the NFL.

Utah graduate transfer DL Stevie Tu’ikolovatu visited Alabama and Nebraska.

Tu’ikolovatu turns 25 years old in June, so he will obviously be one of the older players wherever he transfers to after he traveled to the Philippines following the 2009 season to serve his LDS mission. Tu’ikolovatu played on 40 percent of Utah's defensive snaps last season at a very high level, showing skills as a run defender and pass rusher. Alabama is looking to reload along their interior after losing A'Shawn Robinson and Jarran Reed to the NFL.

Pitt redshirt junior RB James Conner plans to be on the field for the opening of preseason camp in August.

Conner announced yesterday that he has been cleared of Hodgkins lymphoma after undergoing numerous rounds of chemotherapy. The fact that Conner will be ready for camp is no surprise; not because it isn't impressive, but because of the resiliency Conner showed throughout this entire process. Conner was even working with teammates on the field between chemotherapy treatments this spring. He could be the starter in the school's opening game.

Chip Brown of Horns Digest reports the Baylor board of regents will attempt to remove school president Ken Starr from his role by the end of the month.

Starr would be reassigned to a different role, perhaps in the law school. We can all conclude this is in reaction to the last several months, which has included rape scandals involving athletes and potential coverups. The 32 member board likely feels responsible to take action in some way, and Starr is seemingly more likely to be moved than football coach Art Briles. Starr does have a background in law.
