Notre Dame received a verbal commitment from three-star 2019 ATH Kyren Williams.

Williams (5'9/191) looked for all the world like he would be committing to Michigan a month ago, when he showed up to the Rivals 3 Stripe regional in Chicago wearing maize and blue gloves. Rivals analyst Josh Helmholdt certainly thought this would be his ultimate direction, predicting a UM pledge near the end of May. Not to be for the Wolverines, though, not to be. An official visit to South Bend this past weekend appears to have done the trick for Notre Dame. Previously, Williams had not planned on making a commitment at all until the fall. CBS Sports analyst Tom Lemming refers to the talented athlete as "an all-purpose back that fits into a spread offense where he can run and catch." While Williams has experience at a number of positions, Notre Dame views him as a running back and has approached his recruitment from that angle.

FAU signed HC Lane Kiffin to a 10-year contract.

Reports broke in December that FAU and Kiffin were working to put together a longer contract. It's finally come to pass, with school president Dr. John Kelly signing off on the deal this week. This contract will keep Kiffin in Boca Raton through the 2027 season should he stay on for the duration. On the monetary front, no raise is attached to the $950,000 Kiffin was previously making on an annual basis, though he will draw a $50,000 retention bonus for each year he remains with the program and has a number of incentives that could offer considerable boost to that salary. In his inaugural season at FAU a year ago, Kiffin helped guide the Owls to a 9-3 record in the regular season, after which they defeated North Texas in the Conference USA title game and dispatched Akron in the Boca Raton Bowl. Just how long FAU can actually keep Kiffin in the fold until his eyes begin to wander toward other jobs remains to be seen, but this marriage with FAU has started off with plenty of sparks.

Uncommitted three-star 2019 RB Taron Madison said that Washington, Washington State, Oregon State and Utah have stood out to him thus far.

That would be half of Madison's total offer list right there. The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder believes that he could see additional tangible interest from USC, UCLA and Miami. While Madison said that he hopes to make his pledge by the end of August, his first scheduled official visit will not be occurring until Sept. 29, when he heads to Pullman to soak up the atmosphere for Washington State's showdown with Utah. The 247Sports composite board ranks the Banning, California, native as the No. 38 running back prospect in the 2019 class.

NFLDraftScout.com's Dane Brugler compared Western Michigan CB Sam Beal to Miami Dolphins CB Cordrea Tankersley.

Brugler writes that Beal possesses "[s]mooth hips and [the] lower body to turn and run with minimal wasted movements" while additionally "[d]isplay[ing] the recovery quickness to regain body position after a false step." He views the 6-foot-1, 196-pound corner as a potential third-round selection for July's supplemental draft. We have not seen a player selected in these proceedings since 2015, but should an NFL team invest a pick in Beal -- we fully expect this to happen -- they would have to forfeit their corresponding pick from next year's draft.

Michigan AD Warde Manuel revealed that the athletic department is expected to have a budget surplus of $2.5 million for the 2018 fiscal year and projects a similar number for 2019.

Playing into these expectations and projections, Michigan will likely see a windfall in additional ticket sales for the fall, as the team has seven home games on the docket compared to just six contests in the Big House last season. While UM is still searching for its first Playoff berth on the gridiron, Warde's financial numbers are a sign of just how much healthy growth has occurred within the program since the hiring of Jim Harbaugh.

Indiana redshirt senior WR J-Shun Harris (knee) estimated that he's at least 90% of the way back to full health.

For Harris' sake, we really hope that he can make it through the coming season without issue. The 5-foot-8, 170-pound wideout has sustained a rough three ACL tears over the past three years, most recently ripping up the right knee ligament against Maryland last October. He has not had a fully healthy season since 2014. We'll keep tabs on this one as the summer progresses.

Uncommitted four-star 2019 WR Darren Jones said that he has not been visiting programs of late and does not plan to do so over the summer.

Jones (6'8/185) is certainly taking his recruitment from a different angle than most prospects. Not only has he essentially shunted the visit process, he's not taking part in any offseason camps. This is because he has been spending much of his focus on AAU basketball. He's received offers in both sports (eight in football, four in basketball). On the gridiron side of the ledger, the 247Sports composite board slots him into the fray at No. 197 overall for the 2019 cycle. Nebraska and Utah both paid him visits during the spring. He indicated that he'll be releasing a top-five list following his senior season at Cajon High in San Bernardino, but that he may not actually make a final decision between his two sports until basketball's signing day next April. His journey into collegiate action should be a fun follow over the coming months.

Georgia sophomore QB Jake Fromm posted a passer rating of 98.7 on non-play action passes last season.

Per Pro Football Focus, that's the highest mark on such passes by any returning SEC quarterback. It's a strong sign for Fromm's advanced understanding of the game, as play action naturally loosens up the defense and does not necessarily require the same degree of mental difficulty -- mismatches and open targets are naturally more likely to pop free on play action. All in all, Fromm threw for 2,615 yards with a 24/7 TD/INT ratio in 15 games last season.
