Rivals recruiting director Mike Farrell tagged Michigan freshman WR Donovan Peoples-Jones as having the fifth-most impressive freshman performance in Week 3.

The uber-athletic Peoples-Jones (6'2/190) hauled in two passes for 52 yards and also notched a 79-yard punt-return touchdown in Saturday's win over Air Force. Those two catches were the first of his collegiate career. The Detroit Free Press' Nick Baumgardner sees Peoples-Jones receiving more work with Tarik Black (foot) potentially sidelined for the season. Michigan's watching-paint-dry offense would do well to try to get him the ball. The Wolverines have a tricky Saturday showdown with Purdue upcoming this weekend.

UMass redshirt senior TE Adam Breneman (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday.

Breneman has been dealing with a pesky ankle injury for much of the early season. He reaggravated it in the fourth quarter of last Friday's loss to Temple. His playing status for Saturday's game against Tennessee will be determined on Thursday.

Pro Football Focus' Steve Palazzolo compared Alabama junior DB Minkah Fitzpatrick to former FSU S Jalen Ramsey.

"Fitzpatrick brings similar versatility to the table," Palazzolo writes, "and their diverse skill sets are perfect for what NFL defenses are trying to do to combat the higher percentage of spread looks seen on a weekly basis." On the versatility front, Fitzpatrick (6'1/201) has experience playing over the slot, very similar to Ramsey prior to his shift to cornerback in 2015 (Fitzpatrick has played corner, too). In his freshly released mock draft on Wednesday, Walter Football's Charlie Campbell projected Fitz to the Chargers at No. 12 in the first round. A top-10 selection is most definitely in play, here.

Oklahoma four-star 2018 verbal T commit Brey Walker is taking an official visit to Florida State this weekend.

Walker (6'6/320) probably isn't a legitimate flip candidate, as he made his initial Oklahoma commitment near the end of November, 2015, and has not budged in the interim. And Florida State wouldn't be the most ideal landing spot even if Walker did allow his heart to wander -- the Seminoles already have three offensive linemen committed in the 2018 class. Rivals ranks the Moore, Oklahoma, native as the No. 28 overall prospect in the cycle.

FSU HC Jimbo Fisher noted that the Seminoles' long layoff since Week 1 has helped freshman QB James Blackman to acclimate to the offense.

Fisher admitted that he is at least somewhat worried about rust for his team -- the Seminoles have not played since their loss to Alabama on September 2 due to two cancellations forced by Hurricane Irma -- but the secret upside of this layoff comes in getting Blackman up to speed after the loss of Deondre Francois to a knee injury. Said Fisher, "He’s done a great job of understanding the nuances of the offense, a lot more details of it, more things that go on and getting more comfortable with the players, no doubt." The Seminoles will take on NC State this weekend as they look for their first victory of the fractured early season.

LSU HC Ed Orgeron said that suspended redshirt senior DE Frank Herron will be eligible to return in "a couple weeks."

Herron has been out on suspension for the first three games of the season due to an undisclosed situation -- Orgeron said that he is not eligible right now, which would seem to hint toward an academic issue. We'll pass along an update when Herron is reinstated.

Pitt HC Pat Narduzzi insinuated that both redshirt senior QB Max Browne and sophomore QB Ben DiNucci could see the field against Georgia Tech on Saturday.

Browne was benched for DiNucci in the first half of Saturday's blowout loss to Oklahoma State. DiNucci then went on to complete 13-of-25 passes for 228 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. While those aren't particularly impressive numbers, Browne has shown next-to-no spark as a starter, either at USC or Pitt. Our guess is that Narduzzi will eventually side with DiNucci as the season draws ever-onward. Pitt should be looking toward the future right now, a future which grad transfer Browne will not be part of. For the time being, at least, the situation has not been settled.

LSU freshman WR JaCoby Stevens practiced with both the running backs and tight ends on Wednesday.

Stevens (6'2/199) could potentially see some duties as a running back against Syracuse on Saturday with Derrius Guice (knee) ruled out. When he first joined LSU this winter, the true freshman was working with the defensive backs before being shifted over to wideout. He's shown a tremendous amount of position flexibility in his brief time with the Tigers.
