Louisiana-Monroe sophomore QB Caleb Evans threw for 343 yards and a touchdown, and ran for 129 yards and five scores in a 56-50 double-overtime victory over Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday.

Evans (6'2/210) took advantage of a woeful Lafayette defense, to be certain, but this is still a very impressive game for the sophomore quarterback. He was efficient between the 20s with no turnovers, and then inside the red zone he uses his legs to burn the Ragin' Cajuns for the scores. After struggling in his first two starts, it's nice to see Evans so effective, even if it was against one of the worst defenses in college football.

Louisiana-Monroe redshirt junior WR Marcus Green caught two passes for 72 yards in the team's spring game.

The bulk of Green's receiving yardage came on a 50-yard touchdown pass from Caleb Evans. The 5-foot-8, 190-pound redshirt junior logged a 36-344-4 receiving line last season, a noticeable step down from the 62-687-6 line he posted in 2015. At least some of that drop can probably be attributed to the fact that the Warhawks dealt with a level of quarterback uncertainty last season, having to shift over to true freshman Evans after Garrett Smith went down injured midway through the campaign.
Jul 10 - 6:46 PM

Louisiana-Monroe redshirt junior QB Garrett Smith (lower-body injury) remained sidelined this spring.

He's expected to be healthy for the start of fall camp. Across eight 2016 games, Smith threw for 1,237 yards and nine touchdowns while running for 308 yards and three more scores. He's hoping to improve his completion percentage (57 percent) and cut down on his interceptions (seven) this fall, but first Smith will have to win back his starting job. "I think the job is definitely up for grabs," Smith said. "We all want to be the starter no doubt, but it’s a friendly competition and we’re all trying to make each other better."

Alabama redshirt junior RB Derrick Gore transferred to Louisiana-Monroe.

Gore has enrolled in classes at ULM and will have two years of eligibility remaining beginning with the 2017 season. The 5-foot-11, 210-pounder was never able to truly climb into Alabama's ever-constant churn of a running back rotation. He saw just 24 carries in his two active years with the Tide. He spun those totes of the rock into 108 yards (4.5 YPC) and a touchdown. Gore will compete for carries with incumbent starting RB Ben Luckett now that he has joined ULM.

Alabama redshirt junior RB Derrick Gore will transfer.

Buried deep down the most stacked running back depth chart you'll ever see at the collegiate level, Gore had 18 rushes for 93 yards and a touchdown this season to average 5.2 yards per carry. None of the five rushers who had more yards than him are graduating or expected to leave, and the Tide recently landed No. 1 overall recruit RB Najee Harris.

Louisiana-Monroe junior RB Kaylon Watson will transfer.

Watson announced his decision via Twitter, writing, "Appreciate everything ULM has done for me. But I'ma continue my journey somewhere else. I'ma miss my brothers though." The 6-foot, 218-pound junior rushed for 336 yards (3.6 YPC) in 2015. While he didn't score a touchdown on the ground, he did notch three receiving and showed nice hands out of the backfield on his way to catching 20 passes for 183 yards.

Browns selected Louisiana-Monroe CB Trey Caldwell with the No. 173 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Caldwell is a sub-5-foot-9 corner and likely projects to the slot because of it. His 10 yard split of 1.50 seconds is ridiculous, and resulted in a 4.51 forty. His short shuttle of 4.19 seconds and 3-cone of 6.6 seconds are both very good, too. He played on 81.3 percent of the school's snaps last year. We don't know much about his game outside of that.

Louisiana-Monroe senior WR Rashon Ceaser accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

A All-Sun Belt First Team selection last year (Second Team in 2013), Ceaser unfortunately battled ankle problems all season and caught only 31 balls. Fully healthy in 2014, the 6-foot, 196-pounder had 77 receptions for 872 yards and three touchdowns. He's no doubt excited to get in front of scouts. NFL Media analyst Chad Reuter compared the Louisiana-Monroe product to Randall Cobb of the Green Bay Packers over the summer.

Louisiana-Monroe HC Todd Berry has been fired.

Louisiana-Monroe is struggling through a 1-9 season. The nail in Berry's coffin was Saturday's 59-21 loss to Arkansas State. In his six seasons with the Warhawks, Berry held a 28-43 record. The team's lone winning season under his watch came in 2012, when they went 8-5 with a loss in the Independence Bowl. Defensive line coach John Mumford will serve as the interim head coach for the final two games (at Texas State, at Hawaii) of the 2015 season.

NFL Media analyst Chad Reuter compared Louisiana-Monroe senior WR to Randall Cobb of the Green Bay Packers.

Holy hyperbole, Batman! We would need to see a lot more from Ceaser to even begin to compare him to Cobb, but Reuter certainly got our attention. Aforementioned hyperbole aside, the 6-foot, 196-pound senior caught 77 passes for 872 yards and three touchdowns last season. Draft analyst Reuter likes his ability to control the middle of the field with his physicality and quickness, though he also noted that Ceaser needs to improve on the reliability of his hands.

Louisiana-Monroe DT Gerrand Johnson is "quick and instinctive, and he sheds blocks well to wrap up ball carriers," writes Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

"While listed at just 6-foot, 280 pounds, Johnson has dominated Sun Belt competition, starting 35 games in his career as a disruptive force at nose tackle for the Warhawks," Brown wrote. "Nose tackles rarely rack up big numbers, yet he somehow led ULM with 92 tackles last year, finishing with 12 ½ tackles for loss and 6 ½ sacks." Johnson was a First Team All-Sun Belt selection last year, becoming the first DL to lead the Warhawks in tackles since 1980 (Ken Poole with 104 tackles). Brown pegs Johnson as the No. 15 defensive tackle in the land.

Ravens signed Louisiana-Monroe K Justin Manton.

Manton served as ULM's punter, kickoff specialist, and placekicker during his four-year career. He connected on 20-of-24 field goals (83.3 percent) as a senior. Manton earned first-team All-Sun Belt as a junior punter and second-team honors as a kicker in 2014. Manton's ability to perform a variety of tasks gives him an outside chance at an NFL career. Unfortunately, that won't happen in Baltimore behind stud PK Justin Tucker.

Louisiana-Monroe senior K/P Justin Manton accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

The Warhawk will be in an NFL camp next summer, though his participation will likely come via a UDFA contract. Manton is ranked by CBS as the No. 5 kicker prospect, and the No. 355 overall player in the class. The site doesn't give Manton a draftable grade.

Louisiana-Monroe senior QB Kolton Browning completed 21-of-31 attempts for 354 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in a 49-37 victory over Troy on Thursday.

Browning struggled earlier this season -- throwing six interceptions in ULM's first four games -- but he's been sensational in throwing for nine touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Warhawks' last two games, both wins. ULM improves to 5-4, including a 3-1 record within the Sun Belt.

Louisiana-Monroe will play Ohio in the Independence Bowl on December 28.

Compared to other games, this contest lacks NFL caliber talent, but a few prospects stick out. For the Warhawks, receiver Brent Leonard is very close to eclipsing 100 receptions. Ohio has a defensive tackle in Neal Huynh that may be drafted, along with two offensive linemen Skyler Allen and Eric Herman.
