Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman reports that former Miami redshirt freshman QB Kevin Olsen has transferred to Towson.

The former four-star recruit had previously been suspended for a failed drug test and was suspended by the Hurricanes for a third time. Olsen was charged with a DUI and having a fake or stolen driver's license. Last year there were reports that surfaced that head coach Al Golden was not pleased with Olsen's development.

Towson senior DB Tye Smith accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Smith has been one of the best cornerbacks in the FCS for a few years now. Standing 6-foot, 170 pounds, and expected to run in the high 4.4s or low 4.5s, Smith is a smart corner who doesn't mind stepping up in run defense. He must gain weight to have any chance of holding up at the next level, however.

AP's Tim Reynolds reports that redshirt freshman QB Kevin Olsen "is no longer" enrolled at the University of Miami.

The former four-star recruit had previously been suspended for a failed drug test and recently was suspended by the Hurricanes for a third time. Olsen was charged Monday morning with a DUI and having a fake or stolen driver's license. Last year there were reports that surfaced that head coach Al Golden was not pleased with Olsen's development, while some mentioned him as the team's possible starter this summer. In another tweet Reynolds added that, "Olsen considered a transfer earlier this season anyway, so this is zero surprise, especially after the latest chapter."

One source told the AP's Tim Reynolds it would be a "total surprise" if redshirt freshman QB Kevin Olsen is still on Miami's football team on Tuesday.

"For as furious as Al Golden has to be with Kevin Olsen, it says something that he spoke repeatedly about concern for the kid's well-being," Reynolds added. Golden told reporters he was disappointed in Olsen's development last year and later suspended the quarterback following a failed drug test. Olsen was arrested on a DUi charge over the weekend.

Miami redshirt freshman QB Kevin Olsen was arrested on a DUI charge over the weekend.

Olsen had previously been suspended for a failed drug test. Reports surfaced last year that head coach Al Golden was not pleased with Olsen's development, but some mentioned him as the team's possible starter this summer. The suspension did not help, but it seems that Brad Kaaya now has a hold on that job.

Miami coach Al Golden said suspended redshirt freshman QB Kevin Olsen will "absolutely" be at practice when it begins.

Golden refused to comment on Olsen's status during Monday's news conference, but multiple outlets have already reported that he's been suspended for the season opener due to a failed drug test. Former Kansas and BYU fifth-year transfer Jake Heaps could be the frontrunner to assume starting duties out of the chute, but this is a wide-open competition.

Miami suspended redshirt freshman QB Kevin Olsen for at least one game after he failed a drug test.

Olsen, the younger brother of NFL tight end Greg, redshirted during his first season. Miami's quarterback situation is a bit of a mess right now, with Ryan Williams still recovering from injury and Olsen missing at least one game. Former BYU and Kansas quarterback Jake Heaps is the odds on favorite to open the season as the starter.

Browns selected Towson RB Terrance West with the No. 94 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

West (5-foot-9 1/4, 225) was an extremely decorated D-IAA runner, earning Offensive Player of the Year in both the Colonial Athletic Association and all of FCS as a senior. He piled up 802 career carries for 4,849 yards (6.05 YPC) and 84 touchdowns, catching 36 passes. West boosted his stock with a 4.54 forty at the Combine and 10-foot broad jump. He's not a quick-twitch short-area mover, but West's college tape is as good as an running back in this class, with power to beat first contact and Alfred Morris-like jump cuts in the open field. He has enough natural run talent and versatility to become an NFL feature back. He has a strong chance at earning No. 2 duties behind Ben Tate.

An anonymous scout told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that Towson RB Terrance West "doesn't take coaching."

"You might as well not even waste your time," the scout said. West sold shoes in Baltimore upon his high school graduation but caught a pair of buses to try out at nearby Towson. "He made it that way," another scout said. "He has a little bit of an edge. He's a real street kid. But the guy has some hunger and football's important to him." The 5-foot-9, 225-pounder is a favorite sleeper of more than one analyst due to his intriguing combo of size and speed (and, we suppose, productivity; 2,578 yards and 41 touchdowns last season). "Dominated I-AA football," a third scout said. "He's not a blazer but he's a 4.5 guy. He's a yoked-up 225. Good feet. Knows how to play. Good hands. For a guy that was the back of I-AA football, pretty good pass pro guy. He's been the king of his level and school." West finished as the No. 6 RB prospect in the newspaper's poll of NFL scouts.

Towson RB Terrance West visited the Bills on Thursday.

Out of their 30 allotted pre-draft visits, the Bills brought in at least six RBs. It appears as though they're interested in adding another dimension to what should be a heavy ground attack in 2014, and West offers all sorts of intrigue. The 5-foot-9, 225-pounder looks like a bowling ball but deploys a pinball style, keeping his feet moving after contact and using 4.5 speed to find daylight. The combo was good for 2,578 yards and 41 touchdowns last season against inferior competition.

Towson RB Terrance West visited the San Francisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills and the Atlanta Falcons this week, according to Aaron Wilson.

The Falcons visit was previously reported, but the 49ers and Bills are two new names. Both teams are focused on implementing a heavy ground attack, and West offers a pinball style. He could be a third-round selection.

Towson RB Terrance West should "get mentioned among Carlos Hyde, Bishop Sankey and the other top backs in this year's draft," according to NFL.com's Charles Davis.

Davis is presumably speaking to the public, here, as many experts have been espousing West's virtues for months now. "He has the tools to be an effective workhorse in the NFL," Davis wrote. West is a one-cut, downhill runner who flashes good vision and power, which was apparent as he slapped down 2,578 yards and 41 touchdowns last season. The 5-foot-9, 225-pounder ran an impressive 4.54 second 40-yard dash in Indy.

Towson RB Terrance West will visit the Falcons next Wednesday, reports ESPN.com.

West will being coming off a very busy week, having visited the Ravens on Monday, the Vikings on Tuesday, and the Seahawks on Wednesday, that we know of. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote earlier this week that West will be drafted in the third round, so interested parties are advised not to sit on their hands too long. West (5-foot-9, 225-pounds) is a one-cut, downhill runner who flashes good vision and power. In only three seasons at Towson, he slapped down 4,854 rushing yards and 84 touchdowns.

Towson RB Terrance West is visiting the Seahawks on Wednesday, according to NFL.com's Gil Brandt.

Per Brandt and other reports, West visited the Ravens on Monday and the Vikings on Tuesday. He also previously worked out for the Cardinals and had an official visit with the Titans. There is a chance that West will be the first non-FBS player off the board, but he'll battle Jimmy Garoppolo, Billy Turner and Pierre Desir for that title.
Apr 16 - 11:33 AM

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Towson RB Terrance West will be drafted in the third round.

"If you want Towson RB Terrance West, you'll need to draft him in the 3rd round, I don't see him falling out of the top-100 picks. One of my faves," Brugler tweeted. West is a one-cut, downhill runner who flashes good vision and power. West is a popular sleeper amongst some evaluators, but the word may be out on his talents. Last season, West had a monster season with 2,578 yards and 41 touchdowns for the Towson Tigers. The small school prospect has a had a long journey to this point in his career and is generating some serious buzz at the right time.
