Alabama HC Nick Saban said of the tight end position, "I think systematically, we’ll probably use it a little better."

O.J. Howard wishes this would have happened three years ago, but better late than never? While Howard has moved on to the NFL, the Tide have brought in Patriots TE coach Brian Daboll to serve as offensive coordinator and he'll have several options at the position. The names to know, here, are junior Hale Hentges, sophomore Miller Forristall and sophomore Irv Smith Jr. Hentges is more of an in-line blocking tight end, while Forristall and Smith are likely to see the most pure offensive work as receivers.

Washington DC Pete Kwiatkowski said that redshirt freshman DL Levi Onwuzurike is "going to be a big-time contributor."

"He’s got the tools to be a very good football player," Kwiatkowski said. Washington DL coach Ikaika Malloe is on board with this notion, too, saying that the 6-foot-3, 266-pound Onwuzurike has a "limitless" amount of talent. The Huskies envision the redshirt freshman filling an Elijah Qualls-type role on the line, as he is capable of playing multiple positions. Onwuzurike ranked as Scout.com's No. 101 overall prospect for the 2016 cycle.

NJ Advance Media has had to issue an open-records request to Michigan for a roster update.

This is peak cloak-and-dagger Michigan, here. Their official roster has not been updated since the end of the 2016 season and includes 11 players who are currently on NFL rosters and have signed combined contracts worth around $63 million. For reference's sake, the UM basketball team's roster was last updated on July 22 and the hockey team's roster was last updated just six days ago. The Wolverines are the only team in the Big Ten without an updated football roster. Just why Harbaugh and company have opted to keep the curtain closed here is not quite clear -- we're talking about a roster, not a depth chart.

Florida freshman WR Daquon Green was working with the first-team offense on Thursday.

"He’s looked very smooth in individual drills this month," writes SEC Country's Ryan Young, "but getting a chance to rep with the first-team offense with reporters present was a strong statement from the coaches about how he is progressing through his first camp with the Gators." Green (6'1/192) was working as an outside receiver during his time with the first team. He ranked as Rivals' No. 41 wideout coming out of high school as part of the 2017 class.

Georgia freshman RB D'Andre Swift (undisclosed) returned to practice on Thursday.

Swift (5'10/208) sat out three practices due to what HC Kirby Smart referred to as "some medical things." The four-star frosh has potential as a running back, receiver and kick-returner.

The Clarion-Ledger's Antonio Morales passes along that Ole Miss sophomore DE Qaadir Sheppard "has emerged" as a starter opposite Marquis Haynes.

Sheppard (6'3/233) has pushed ahead of Victor Evans to put himself on the track to start when the Rebs kick off against South Alabama on September 2. He initially signed with Syracuse as part of the 2015 recruiting class, but the former three-star recruit was kicked off the Orange last February, reportedly due to a pair of failed drug tests. He recorded just one tackle and an interception in his lone active season back in 2015.

Miami QB coach Jon Richt said that redshirt sophomore QB Evan Shirreffs and redshirt junior QB Malik Rossier are currently leading the competition to start.

Richt explained that "as far as day to day, if we had to start right now, yeah, those two older guys are ready. They’ve been in the system for a year and a half." He noted that while highly-anticipated true freshman QB N'Kosi Perry possesses an "unbelievable talent base," Perry still understandably takes a little more time to process the field than the more experienced Shirreffs and Rossier.

Nebraska redshirt freshman WR J.D. Spielman said that he hopes that his work on the scout team last year has readied him for in-game action.

"I knew I wasn’t going to play last year so I knew this was my opportunity to get better and go against starters every day at practice," Spielman said. The 5-foot-9, 181-pounder was named the Scout Team Offensive MVP at the end of his first year with the Cornhuskers. He caught four passes for 70 yards in the team's spring game. With freshman WR Jaevon McQuitty done for the year due to an injury, Spielman has an opportunity in front of him to help Nebraska on the depth front.
