Miami (OH) graduate CB Marshall Taylor indicated that Louisville is the front-runner to land his transfer services.

Taylor visited Louisville's facilities over the weekend and responded with rave reviews, proclaiming that they were "definitely at the top." "Man," Taylor said, "Louisville was awesome. They have a really, really talented team. They are going to shock a lot of people next year." Auburn, Michigan State and Florida State are also in the hunt to add the 6-foot-2, 199-pounder. Last season, he recorded 39 tackles and intercepted two passes, one of which he returned for a touchdown.

Former Mississippi graduate CB Tee Shepard has decided to return to the gridiron and transfer to Miami (OH).

Shepard has had one of the most circuitous college careers of any player in recent memory. A five-star recruit in Notre Dame’s 2012 recruiting class, Shepard transferred to Holmes Community College in 2013, signed with Mississippi in February 2014 and missed the 2014 season after tearing a toe tendon during fall camp that required surgery. He was expected to break out last fall but announced his retirement from the sport in October. Now, the RedHawks will try to unlock Shepard's potential. "Chuck Martin is the only coach in the country I can try to play my last year with," Shepard said. "He recruited me out of high school when he was at Notre Dame at the time. It’s been over four years coming"

Miami (OH) senior DE Bryson Albright is "in the midst of a disappointing season after being labeled a potential late rounder," reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

After posting six sacks and eight TFL in 2014, Albright has turned in only 15 tackles and one sack through six games. He had just one tackle in the Redhawks' 31-point loss to Ohio this past weekend. Albright's brother, Alex, played for the Dallas Cowboys.

Mississippi junior CB Tee Shepard retired from football.

The star-crossed Shepard, who is hearing impaired, was either never healthy enough or in the correct situation to cultivate his five-star talent. "The injuries and challenges I have overcome the last few years have taken away my love for playing the game of football," said Shepard. "I want to thank Rebel Nation for the support they have shown me in my time here. I want to especially thank Coach Freeze for showing me what unconditional love is like." This is a blow to the Rebels, who had used Shepard in every game. "While we had hoped Tee would continue playing, he has chosen to conclude his career and focus on finishing his degree here at Ole Miss," Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze said. "We respect his decision and wish him the very best. He will always be a part of our family, and we hope he continues to use his platform to impact others."

Mississippi junior CB Tee Shepard has overcome a hearing impairment and is on the verge of winning a starting CB job.

"I think about living in that world, and I don’t know that I would handle it as well as he does," Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said. "But 90 percent of the time, he’s got a tremendous, beautiful smile on his face, and he’s excited about the opportunity he has." Rebels co-defensive coordinator Jason Jones made some adjustmets when JUCO transfer arrived last summer. "We have different hand signals that we use to communicate with each other," he said. "And in the meeting room, I make sure I’m always facing him as we’re installing and putting things up on our defensive board." Shepard pushed Senquez Golson and Mike Hilton for a starting spot before his season ended with a toe injury last summer. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder is a former five-star recruit. "There’s no question talentwise, he’s talented enough to really help our football team," Freeze said.

NFL Media notes that Mississippi junior CB Tee Shepard "has excellent size, is physical, possesses good ball skills and can run."

The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder has had quite the career already. He sat out his senior season of high school, left Notre Dame because of academic issues in his first semester, played at Holmes Community College in 2013, signed with Mississippi in February 2014 and missed the 2014 season after tearing a toe tendon during fall camp that required surgery. The former five-star recruit was the No. 39 player in the country coming out of high school, according to Scout. "Shepard has big-time talent," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Mike Huguenin. "Rebels coaches hope he produces: Ole Miss has excellent safeties, but both starting corners are new and depth at the position is unproven."

Packers selected Miami (OH) CB Quinten Rollins with the No. 62 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Rollins (5'11/195) was a star guard on the Redhawks' basketball team before taking up football as a senior and earning MAC Defensive Player of the Year with seven INTs and four tackles for loss. He ran 4.57 with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump at the Combine. Although he isn't a special athlete for an NFL corner, Rollins has rare foot quickness and change-of-direction skills, and shows the ability to win in press-man coverage. Rollins profiles as a potential No. 2 corner in the NFL and has traits that would fit nicely in the slot. The Packers lost Tramon Williams and Davon House to free agency.

NFL Media analyst Charles Davis "can envision [Miami (OH) DB Quinten Rollins] quickly earning star status" in the NFL.

Davis put Rollins on his list of five rookies who could make the Pro Bowl, a stunning proclamation for a player who played only one year of college football as a former basketball player. "It would be one of the season's great surprises to see him go straight to the Pro Bowl, and he has the ball skills to come in and make a big impact right off the bat," Davis wrote. "Rollins is most likely a second-round pick ... With the right team, he could start racking up takeaways. What if he goes down the same path as Jairus Byrd, a second-round pick in 2009 who was not just a Pro Bowler, but an All-Pro after making nine picks as a rookie? The team that picks Rollins will have a plan to feature him from Day 1." The 6-foot, 203-pound Rollins ran the 40 in 4.57 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Miami (OH) DB Quinten Rollins is scheduled to visit the Falcons next week, according to Rand Getlin.

Expect Rollins to be evaluated and/or drafted as a free safety or cornerback. The one year collegiate football player shows an innate feel for movement, timing and playing the ball in the air. However, he tested like a below average athlete. The Falcons are in search of a free safety across from William Moore.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein ranks Miami (OH) DB Quinten Rollins as the No. 7 CB in the class.

"Rare start-stop-start suddeness. His ability to change gears instantly gives him a chance to develop into a talented cover cornerback," Zierlein wrote. "With more work on technique and overall discipline, Rollins has the physical tools to become a very good NFL starter." Zierlein compares Rollins to Perrish Cox. The prospect will soon work out for or visit the Cowboys, Browns, Lions and Panthers. The 6-foot, 203-pound Rollins ran the 40 in 4.57 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Miami (OH) DB Quinten Rollins will workout for or visit the Cowboys, Browns, Lions and Panthers, according to Rand Getlin.

These teams could target the inexperienced defensive back in the second-round. Rollins only played one year of collegiate football and displayed great movement skills to stick with receivers and ball skills to win at the catch point. He could see a shift to free safety in the NFL.

Miami (OH) DB Quinten Rollins "is still early in the learning curve overall and must improve his technique backpedaling and knowing when to flip and run," writes NFLDraftScout.com's Frank Cooney.

That said, the analyst is very impressed with Rollins' work, writing that the prospect "shows instincts, awareness and reaction worthy of a four-year football letterman." Rollins recently went through workouts with the Carolina Panthers and the Indianapolis Colts. "I just have a knack for the ball -- a natural knack for the ball," Rollins, a former basketball player, said. "I've always had that since I was a kid. Love getting steals, love getting interceptions. I was fortunate enough to be an offensive player in high school so that's where I get my ball skills from. It all translates." Concluded Cooney: "Rollins has the ability, but will need time and tutoring."

Miami (OH) DB Quinten Rollins' "best football is still ahead of him," postulates NFL Media analyst Charles Davis.

As you know, Rollins played only one season of college football after spending the early part of his collegiate sporting career on the hardwood. "There's reason to think he has plenty of potential to improve as he continues to learn the game," Davis wrote. "He played corner in college and could stay at that spot in the NFL, but I think he's best suited to play safety in the NFL, given his speed (he ran the 40 in 4.57 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine). His ball skills could really shine at safety, where he's able to keep the game in front of him instead of having to turn around to find the ball as a corner." Rollins recently went through workouts with the Carolina Panthers and the Indianapolis Colts.

Miami (OH) DB Quinten Rollins had workouts with the Carolina Panthers and the Indianapolis Colts, according to NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt.

With only one year of college football under his belt, the former four-year basketball starter recorded 72 tackles, seven interceptions, 4.0 tackles for loss for the Redhawks. The 6-foot, 203-pound Rollins has raw talent for the position and shows a ton of physicality in the run game. Rollins stock is heating up at the moment and he could be solid option in the second round of the draft.

NFL Media believes Miami (OH) DB Quinten Rollins could be an intriguing option for the Patriots in Round 2.

"Belichick would have to love helping mold a former college basketball player, but Rollins has some solid film during his one year of football and turned himself into a legitimate Day 2 prospect," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Bryan Fischer. "He's got great quickness and is surprisingly physical, two traits the Patriots are looking for at corner." It's far from certain that Rollins will be available in the second round, much less at the end of it, but it's hard to say without bugging various NFL meeting rooms.
