Former TCU junior WR/CB/KR/PR Cameron Echols-Luper transferred to Arkansas State and will attempt to transition to QB.

Echols-Luper is a tremendous punt returner, but he could never really find a position from which to climb the depth chart on either offense or defense with the Frogs. It's a bit surprising that he will switch positions again, especially when his NFL future is on the outside and/or on the receiving end of kicks. Echols-Luper had the fastest 200-meter time in the country with 20.39 seconds at the Big 12 championships in May. The three-star recruit, who played quarterback in high school, must sit out the 2015 season. When he comes back, he'll have two years left.

TCU junior CB Cameron Echols-Luper announced he is leaving the program.

Echols-Luper is arguably TCU's top returner. He averaged 11.4 yards on 47 punt returns over the last two years and 11.5 yards on kick returns. The junior gave no indication where his next destination will be.

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter anticipates NFL teams seeing Arkansas State redshirt senior TE Darrion Griswold "as a Larry Donnell-type prospect, who surprised with great success as a rookie with the Giants last year coming out of Grambling State."

The 6-foot-5, 264-pound Griswold, who collected 18 receptions for 221 yards and four touchdowns last season, is estimated to run a 4.67 forty. Walter Football ranks Griswold as the No. 5 TE in the class and slapped a preliminary Rds. 3-5 grade on the Red Wolf star. "Receiving statistics do not measure Griswold's potential; like many college tight ends, he is underutilized in the Red Wolves' offense despite his size and long strides that allow him to threaten the seam," Reuter wrote.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein notes that Arkansas State redshirt senior TE Darrion Griswold "will surely be monitored by NFL scouts who see next-level potential in his game."

The 6-foot-5, 264-pound Griswold (4.67 forty) collected 18 receptions for 221 yards and four touchdowns last season and has just 52 catches over three college seasons. "[Griswold] had just one game with more than two catches in 2014, but he's still worth keeping an eye on for sure," Zierlein wrote. "Griswold is a little high-cut, but the former All-State basketball player has good overall size and is able to go high and low to vacuum throws that others on this list can't get to." Griswold is also a solid blocker.

The site slapped a preliminary Rds. 3-5 grade on Griswold. "Griswold has good size and athleticism," WF noted. The 6-foot-5, 264-pound Griswold is estimated to run a 4.67 forty. He collected 18 receptions for 221 yards and four touchdowns last season.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline likes Arkansas State redshirt junior TE Darrion Griswold and redshirt junior WR J.D. McKissic.

"Arkansas State usually find a way to place a prospect into the later rounds of the draft but I don’t think that’s going to happen next April," Pauline wrote. "I like both underclassmen pass catchers, tight end Darrion Griswold and receiver J.D. McKissic and feel they could develop into late rounders in 2016 if they step up their play." As you've likely ascertained, Pauline currently grades both Griswold and McKissic as undrafted free agents.

Chargers selected Arkansas State NT Ryan Carrethers with the No. 165 overall pick in the NFL draft.

Carrethers (6-foot-1 1/4, 337) was a favorite of Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris on tape for his consistent finishing ability as a two-down run stopper. He faced a lot of double teams in the Sun Belt, and held his own. Carrethers finished his career with 14.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks, and ranked third in the nation in tackles by a defensive lineman (93) as a senior. Although he'll likely leave the field on all passing downs in the pros, Carrethers is an active nose tackle who should make an impact in the run game fairly quickly. The Chargers need some beef up front, and Carrethers offers it.

UNC offensive coordinator Blake Anderson has been named Arkansas State's head coach.

Despite a somewhat lackluster two season in Chapel Hill, Larry Fedora's style and staff are still highly regarded in the college football world. Anderson followed Fedora from Southern Miss and focuses on tempo.

Arkansas State redshirt senior DT Ryan Carrethers registered 16 total tackles in the school's 23-7 loss to Louisiana-Lafayette.

We usually don't post tackle numbers, but this was a ridiculous out for Carrethers. The senior will likely earn an all star game invited after the season and should put on a good workout at the Combine. The stout nose tackle prospect could be a "riser," but he has posted solid film all season.

Arkansas State senior Adam Kennedy has been named the school's starting QB.

Kennedy is a transfer from Utah State who was granted his immediate eligibility after graduated last year. He started the final five games in 2011 for the Aggies, throwing for 972 yards, 11 touchdowns, and four interceptions in eight games. In those five starts, Utah State finished with a 4-1 record.

Arkansas State head coach Bryan Harsin believes the school as the right QB on their roster.

"Just like Kellen Moore, Colt McCoy, Ryan Aplin -- all of these great quarterbacks in the past, nobody knew about them until they build themselves into that position," Harsin said. "We've got somebody on our campus right now that I think is going to be a very good quarterback. We've got a lot of candidates to do that." The likeliest candidate is Utah State transfer Adam Kennedy.

Arkansas State, and former Utah State, senior QB Adam Kennedy will be eligible to play immediately in 2013.

Kennedy started the final five games in 2011, throwing for 972 yards, 11 touchdowns, and four interceptions in eight games. During those starts Utah State finished with a 4-1 record. There's a chance he sees snaps for the Red Wolves in 2013.

Dolphins selected Arkansas State S Don Jones with the No. 250 overall pick.

Jones (5-foot-11 1/8, 191) was a Combine snub whose draft stock skyrocketed when he ran forty times of 4.40 and 4.42 with a 42-inch vertical at Arkansas State's Pro Day. He did 17 reps on the bench. He also visited the Dolphins during the pre-draft process.

Scout.com's Aaron Wilson reports Arkansas State S Don Jones visited the Cincinnati Bengals on April 17.

"Jones has [also] visited the Houston Texans, Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders, Green Bay Packers and Jacksonville Jaguars. He has conducted private workouts with the Cleveland Browns, Dolphins, New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles." Jones is one of the fastest rising prospects and could be selected on day-two of the draft.
