LSU junior WR Trey Quinn transferred to SMU.

Per NCAA transfer rules, Quinn will sit out the 2016 season. He will have two years of eligibility remaining come 2017. For his career at LSU, the former four-star recruit caught 22 passes for 276 yards. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder joins John Diarse and Kevin Spears as Tiger wideouts who have left the program this offseason. These are minor depth blows for HC Les Miles, but don't amount to much more than that.

LSU sophomore WR Trey Quinn will transfer.

Quinn announced his intention to transfer in a Twitter post, thanking LSU's coaching staff and his teammates. As to where the 6-foot-1, 200-pound sophomore will be transferring, no word as of yet. The Advocate's Ross Dellenger reports that he'll remain at LSU for the spring semester before pushing out to points unknown. Dellenger additionally hears that Quinn would like to remain at the FBS level. If that's the case, the wideout will be forced to sit out the 2017 campaign. He finishes his Tiger career with 22 catches for 276 yards.

According to Matt Tait of the Lawrence Journal-World, Kansas will hire SMU OC Jason Phillips as a WR coach.

To be clear, Phillips would not be replacing current WR coach Klint Kubiak. Instead, he'll reportedly serve in a complimentary role. Phillips began his current role with SMU in 2011. This past season, Kansas averaged just 15.25 points per contest, the sixth-worst mark in the nation, while SMU showed a bit more spark at 27.75 on average.

Former Hawaii coach June Jones will apply for the school's HC vacancy.

Norm Chow was fired on Monday. "I don’t want to comment further at this time because the attention should stay on the team now," Jones said, "and hopefully Chris can lead them to some wins down the stretch." Chris is OL coach Chris Naeole, who will act as interim head coach for the final three games and also be given consideration for the full-time gig. The 62-year-old Jones went 76-41 as coach of the Rainbow Warriors between 1999-2007. You best remember him from 2007's 12-1 record and Sugar Bowl appearance.

SMU HC Chad Morris said that he believed that redshirt freshman WR Courtland Sutton will eventually be viewed as one of the best wide receivers in the country.

That's some high praise there, Coach. Sutton took a medical redshirt his freshman year, so we're just now seeing what he has to offer. The 6-foot-4, 213-pound wideout hauled in three passes for 82 yards and two touchdowns in the team's opener against Baylor, then followed that performance up with five catches, 65 receiving yards and one touchdown versus North Texas. Saturday's match-up against TCU makes for an enticing under-the-radar match-up in daily leagues, as both teams will be trying to break the scoreboard.

TCU HC Gary Patterson said that SMU redshirt junior QB Matt Davis reminds him of Trevone Boykin in his ability to run.

"You’ve got to worry about [Davis] scrambling," said Patterson. "The hardest thing is to get on him when he goes back to pass. That’s where he’s hurt a lot of people. Big sprintout, then took off and ran last week for about a 50- or 60-yard touchdown. He creates problems." The 6-foot-2, 202-pound redshirt junior has been sharp through two games, completing 70.2% of his passes (33-of-47) while throwing for 347 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions. He's also rushed for 240 yards and two scores.

SMU redshirt junior QB Matt Davis, a Texas A&M transfer, completed 16 of 23 attempts fr 122 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the school's 56-21 loss to Baylor.

Davis rushed for 115 yards on 24 carries. He and new head coach Chad Morris fit each other's styles very well. Davis has plenty of escapability and playmaking skills in the open field. The first half was better than the second, but daily fantasy players will likely be paying attention to Davis moving forward.

LSU beat writer Jim Kleinpeter notes that sophomore WR Trey Quinn has seen "the ball better and showed strong hands while plucking sharp passes out of the air" at a recent practice.

The LSU wideout started seven games as a freshman last season for the Tigers, and finished the season with 17 receptions for 193 yards. Unfortunately, Quinn's season was tarnished with two big drops in a fourth quarter loss to the Crimson Tide. Kleinpeter notes that Quinn "looks more confident" at practice.

SMU sophomore QB Neal Burcham may miss the 2015 season due to a torn ACL.

Burcham's luck has mirrored that of his school over the past few years. A right elbow injury suffered in early September cost Burcham most of the 2014 campaign, and now his 2015 season might be over before it began. No word yet on how Burcham sustained the injury. New HC Chad Morris will have to earn every cent of his salary next season. Matt Davis and Garrett Krstitch are expected to compete for the starting QB gig.

"I only left that great situation because I knew what we could accomplish at SMU," Morris said in a statement. "I grew up watching SMU football. I know the history and I know we can be great again. I look forward to working with our student-athletes and staff, as well as my friends and former colleagues, the Texas high school coaches, as we work towards winning championships here on the Hilltop. I can’t wait to get started." Morris' Texas connections run deep. He grew up in the state, coached Texas high school football from 1994-2009, and graduated from Texas A&M.

Morris has been highly praised for multiple seasons, however, his offense featured multiple prolific receivers and running backs.
