TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline notes that Tulsa redshirt senior WR Keyarris Garrett "presents himself as a strong, possession wide out who wins out for contested passes."

"I want to like Keyarris Garrett," Pauline wrote. "At the same time he also shows too much inconsistency and a bit of foolish play in his game on occasion." Garrett is currently graded by Pauline as an undrafted free agent prospect.

Tulsa has fired head coach Bill Blankenship.

In his first two seasons at Tulsa, Blankenship was a combined 19-8, including 14-2 in conference. That winning percentage has tumbled in recent years, with an ultimate win-loss of 24-27. Blankenship has an offensive background and could surface as a coordinator.

Former Tulsa basketball player Pat Swilling Jr. will walk on for the Tulsa football team as an RB.

Swilling's father, of course, is a former Georgia Tech and NFL standout. "I’m acclimated to wearing a helmet and pads again," said Swilling Jr. "I’ve done some football training during the last few summers. I haven’t been playing football games, but I’ve stayed connected with football." Swilling Jr. also flirted with UCF and Oklahoma State before deciding to stay at Tulsa. The younger Swilling has one remaining season of eligibility after playing four years on the hoops team without using a redshirt.

Tulsa junior WR Keyarris Garrett will miss the rest of the season after suffering a compound fracture of his lower left leg in Saturday's game against Colorado State.

This marks the third straight year that Tulsa has lost a premier wideout; Damaris Johnson was suspended for the season in 2011 and Bryan Burnham was lost for the year in the 2012 opener with a knee injury. Garrett caught 67 passes for 845 yards and nine TDs last year, all team bests. The 6-foot-4, 219-pounder can use a redshirt this season and return in 2014 as a redshirt junior. "Losing Keyarris - let's not downplay this," Tulsa quarterback Cody Green said. "It's going to hurt. He's a deep threat. Big, physical guy. He helps us out in the passing game and in the run game because defenses key on him."

"He’ll need to concentrate his efforts on academics and be in a situation to play and graduate next year."

Tulsa starting sophomore K Daniel Schwarz will seek a transfer.

Wide receiver Adam Boyd is also leaving the school, and neither gave a reason, at least publicly, for their departures. Schwarz connected on 12-of-18 field goal attempts and 52-of-59 extra points last season. Carl Salazar, a former walk on, appears to be in line for the starting kicker duties.

Tulsa H-back Willie Carter ran his forty in the 4.45-4.52 range during the school's pro day.

Carter is drawing interest form the Packers and Eagles, per Pauline. At Tulsa, Carter was used from a variety of sets, specifically as a detached receiver. He sports a thick frame and runs hard after the catch. He'd be worth a shot as a camp invite.

Tulsa senior WR Bryan Burnham suffered a "significant knee injury" in Saturday's loss to Iowa State.

Head coach Bill Blankenship did not have a long-term prognosis for Burnham, saying only that the receiver is "certainly… out for now" and that the news is "heartbreaking." An MRI is scheduled for the near future. As a junior last season, he recorded 54 receptions for 850 yards and nine touchdowns.

Tulsa receiver Thomas Roberson is ready to contribute once again after missing virtually all of 2011 with injuries.

Roberson and his twin brother, James, are back and healthy this spring. For Thomas, it’s an opportunity to show that he can step in at help at receiver much like he did as a freshman in 2010. That year he caught 30 passes for 367 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Tulsa quarterback G.J. Kinne threw for 203 yards and ran for 92 in a 24-17 win at UCF.

With the score tied at 17-17, Kinne’s 16-yard TD pass to Clay Sears with 8:23 remaining was the difference for the Golden Hurricane, who are 5-0 in CUSA. Kinne has thrown 17 TD passes and ran for two more this season. The only game he did not throw at least one TD pass was Sept. 17 against Oklahoma State when he left early due to injury.
