Per ESPN's Matt Fortuna, Wake Forest has not decided on a starting quarterback.

You'd figure junior QB John Wolford has a slight advantage over Kendall Hinton based on experience, but all bets are off in this particular case. Since the pair play vastly different games, HC Dave Clawson may be deciding more upon an offensive identity than a program face in late August.

Wake Forest NT Tylor Harris accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Harris played in just seven games this past season due to a foot injury. The 6-foot-4, 285-pounder didn't even play his first game until September 19, when the Demon Deacons tangled with Army. Ultimately, he finished the 2015 campaign with 16 tackles (1.5 for loss) and 0.5 sacks. Over the summer, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler praised his agility and called him a "handful for interior blockers," but he'll need to check out medically if an NFL team's going to take a chance on him. He failed to play in double-digit games in every season of his college career.

Wake Forest redshirt senior ILB Brandon Chubb "has a chance to hear his name called in the later rounds of the 2016 NFL Draft," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Against Lousiville, Chubb "showed outstanding pursuit speed and diagnose skills to cut off ballcarrier angles and time his blitzes to attack gaps at the line of scrimmage before blockers could react," Brugler wrote. The Wake Forest prospect, and cousin to Georgia Bulldog's Nick Chubb, recorded 12 tackles, with one tackle for loss against the Cardinals' offense. The 6-foot-1, 245-pound Chubb has already posted 78 tackles on the season.

Wake Forest sophomore QB John Wolford completed 6-of-18 passes for 131 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions in Friday's 20-19 loss to Louisville.

Wake Forest didn't score in the second half of the game. Wolford opened the season with passing efforts of 323 yards and 373 yards against Elon and Syracuse, respectively, but he hasn't come close to that kind of passing success in any other game this season. On the whole, the 6-foot-1, 205-pound sophomore's thrown for 1,143 yards with an unimpressive 7/8 TD/INT ratio. Backup Kendall Hinton also played in Friday's contest, though he completed just 3-of-12 passes. Both players should continue to see work at quarterback.

Wake Forest will start sophomore QB John Wolford against Louisville, but freshman Kendall Hinton will play as well.

Wolford was the starter this season before missing huge chunks of multiple games. Neither Hinton nor Wolford have played particularly well this season, with a combined 8 touchdowns and 9 interceptions.

Wake Forest freshman QB Kendall Hinton completed 27-of-42 passes for 215 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's 24-16 loss to Florida State.

Hinton was starting in place of the injured John Wolford (ankle). In addition to his 215 yards passing, the 6-foot, 185-pound freshman also carried the ball 13 times for 48 yards in the loss. Rivals graded him as a three-star recruit out of high school, as well as the 26th best dual-threat QB in the country. Hinton could see another start next week, depending on how Wolford's ankle progresses.

Wake Forest redshirt junior WR Jared Crump will miss the 2015 season with a torn ACL.

The injury occurred during practice. He caught 32 passes for 339 yards and a touchdown last season, which accounted for 16 percent of the team's receiving yards. Freshman Steven Claude is expected to see a larger role.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline is "a fan" of Wake Forest redshirt senior ILB Brandon Chubb.

"After having a player selected in the first round last April its quite possible no one from Wake Forest is selected at any point next year," Pauline wrote. "I’m a fan of Brandon Chubb, the nose tackle who projects to inside linebacker. He’s tough, smart and very quick but I struggle to see how he’s anything other than a late seventh round prospect." In fact, Pauline give him an undrafted grade at the moment. The 6-foot-1, 245-pound Chubb had 109 tackles, 6.5 TFL, 3 sacks and two forced fumbles in 2014.

Wake Forest added CB Devin Gaulden as a graduate transfer.

Gaulden started five games in 2014 as the school's nickelback and played in all 14 contests. Prior to that season, however, Gaulden's 2012 ended with a torn ACL which also kept him out of 2013. Wake Forest just passed first-round pick Kevin Johnson off to the NFL and Gaulden could be in line to help replace him.

Wake Forest suspended redshirt freshman OL Ryan Anderson for five games for a violation of team rules.

No details were released explaining the violation. Anderson redshirted his first season with the Demon Deacons. He will be eligible to return against FSU.

Wake Forest senior NT Tylor Harris "is a handful for interior blockers to handle," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler observes.

"Harris has worked hard to fill out his frame since the Louisiana native arrived in Winston-Salem, but he hasn't lost his foot agility, carrying his weight well to mirror the ballcarrier and clog up the middle. Harris has a bad habit of losing leverage off the snap, allowing his pads to rise and stalling his pass rush, but when fresh, he is a handful for interior blockers to handle," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-4, 285-pound Harris was a full-time starter in 2014, posting 25 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, one sack and four fumbles for Wake Forest. Harris carries his weight well, as he's been clocked in the 4.8s in the 40-yard dash.

Wake Forest redshirt senior Brandon Chubb is "a well-rounded player with the toughness needed to play at the NFL level," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler observes.

"The son of a NFL linebacker, he plays faster than he times with relentless pursuit to chase down ballcarriers, keeping his head on a swivel at all times. While he's not nearly as well-known as his cousin, Nick, who is one of the top running backs in the country, Chubb is a well-rounded player with the toughness needed to play at the NFL level," Brugler wrote. The Wake Forest prospect was second on the team in total tackles, with 109, including 6.5 tackles for loss, 3.0 sacks and two forced fumbles in 2014.

The Texans earned a "B" grade for their draft and "did a good job of continuing to strengthen the roster beyond [the QB] position," analyzed ESPN's Mel Kiper.

"Kevin Johnson is a bit lean, but everything else is there, and I know some teams had him graded as the best cornerback in the draft," Kiper wrote. "Benardrick McKinney is the thumper they needed at inside lineabacker, but I had both Eric Kendricks and Denzel Perryman rated higher. That's a situation in which you're looking for specific traits, and McKinney really makes his money tackling against the run." Rotoworld's Evan Silva was not as high on Houston's haul, giving the team a "C" draft grade. "Quarterback, tight end, and interior O-Line remain question marks in Houston," Silva concluded. Both analysts praised the Round 3 trade to move up to select Arizona State WR Jaelen Strong.
