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.

Georgia freshman QB Justin Fields was sacked seven times in the team's spring game.

It's a somewhat misleading stat, as there was no contact allowed on the quarterbacks and whistles were quick to come by. We'd imagine that Fields would be able to use his superlative wheels to scoot out of trouble in some of those spring game situations had they occurred during the regular season. When the five-star frosh had time to throw, he completed 18-of-33 passes for 207 yards and a touchdown. We expect that Jake Fromm should be able to retain his starting job in the face of competition from the talented youngster unless he really stumbles in August camp. He figures to have something of a long leash after the admirable job he did last season in leading the Bulldogs to the National Championship Game against Alabama.

JUCO junior WR Jordan Wayne-Prather reversed course on his decision to join Marshall and will now enroll at Bowling Green.

Wayne-Prather (6'1/195) spent the first two years of collegiate career at Antelope Valley College in Lancaster, California. The three-star JUCO prospect had signed with Marshall back in January, but announced on Thursday that he would actually be plying his FBS trade with Bowling Green, rather than the Thundering Herd. HIs place on the depth chart figures to clarify in August camp, assuming that the NCAA does not have any eligibility issue with his move.
