Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman notes that uncommitted four-star 2019 T Darnell Wright excelled at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in Columbus despite his tender young age.

"Wright dominated older and higher-rated prospects at the Columbus Rivals Camp even though he was one of the youngest players there," Friedman writes. In particular, the analyst singled out the 6-foot-6, 275-pounder's "quickness, patience and the way he finished his blocks." All of this fine work earned Wright an invitation to the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge. Among the programs he is currently considering for a potential commitment, Virginia Tech, Louisville, Kentucky, West Virginia and Tennessee.

ESPN's Edward Aschoff believes that LSU freshman QB Myles Brennan has a legitimate shot to push Danny Etling for the starting job in August camp.

Brennan is just arriving on campus now, so he will need to make a quick acclimation if he realistically wants to challenge Etling, but Aschoff sees the 6-foot-4, 172-pounder as potentially the best fit in OC Matt Canada's offense. "Brennan was one of the top pro-style passers in the 2017 class, and he will get every chance to win the starting spot," the analyst writes. Brennan offers elite fundamentals and a strong pocket presence, though he will need to add bulk to his frame, particularly given the rough-and-tumble conference he is about to enter.

Texas sophomore DT Jordan Elliott transferred to Missouri.

"(Missouri DL coach Brick) Haley is one of the best D-Line coaches out there. Missouri’s a powerhouse for defensive linemen. They’re coming and going first round every year. That’s real appealing to me," Elliott said of his transfer choice. Texas A&M and Florida were also in consideration, here. The 6-foot-2, 213-pounder was a four-star recruit coming out of high school in 2016 and went on to register eight tackles (1.5 for loss) in six games with the Longhorns as a true freshman. He will have three seasons of eligibility remaining after he sits out the 2017 campaign to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations.

Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman noted that uncommitted four-star 2019 C Clay Webb was one of the top performers in the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp series.

"Webb knows how to flip the switch. He is a quiet young man off the field, then plays with anger on it. In Atlanta, he was powerful, he was violent and he was dominant," Friedman writes. While the 6-foot-4, 285-pounder still has two years remaining at Oxford High (Alabama), he has already conjured up a top-three, one made up of a trio of SEC schools in Alabama, Auburn and Georgia.

ESPN's Edward Aschoff writes that Auburn freshman T Calvin Ashley could make a push for starts as the offseason progresses.

"Auburn's right tackle was manned by veteran Braden Smith, but if Ashley, who is actually more natural at left tackle, proves himself, he could push for time on the right side and send Smith inside," Aschoff writes. Aschoff colleague Sam Kahn Jr. forwarded another possibility earlier this spring when it comes to the 6-foot-7, 330-pounder, noting that if Auburn keeps Ashley at left tackle, they could potentially move 2016 starting LT Darius James over to the right side.

BYU HC Kalani Sitake said that junior QB Tanner Mangum has "taken this team and this offense especially as part of his deal."

Sitake admitted that last season's dynamic between aged starter Taysom Hill and 2015 breakout-star-turned-backup Mangum was "kind of a weird dynamic," but he has been impressed with Mangum's work this offseason in taking over starting duties. Said Sitake, "He is definitely on his way toward having a great year in my mind. I think he’s got all the intangibles ,and it’s just a matter of him getting out there and having the opportunity." After taking over for the injured Hill in the 2015 season-opener, Mangum went on to throw for 3,377 yards with a 23/10 TD/INT ratio.

Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman tagged uncommitted three-star 2018 G Chris Murray as a standout from the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp series.

"The interior offensive lineman used exceptional technique and strength to win each of his one-on-one reps at the Los Angeles event," Friedman writes. He passes along that the 6-foot-3, 290-pounder is planning on taking some Pac-12 visits this summer. Murray ranks as Rivals' No. 24 guard prospect in the 2018 cycle.

ESPN's Edward Aschoff notes that Arkansas freshman CB Chevin Calloway "has a shot at cracking the rotation" in 2017.

"He has the talent to push his way on the field in some capacity immediately. The ESPN 300 member has ball-hawk tendencies and can help out against the run," Aschoff writes. He is a speedster, having been clocked at 4.45 seconds in the 40-yard dash. At Arkansas, the four-star frosh will be trying to his work his way into the mix with Henre' Toliver, Britto Tutt and Ryan Pulley.
