The case for 'uncommon' Deshaun Watson as the Texans' starting QB
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 11:00:31 GMT)
Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer Close Covered the Packers for ESPN Milwaukee Marquette University graduate Follow on Twitter HOUSTON -- It was late on a Saturday night in January, just a few weeks after Deshaun Watson enrolled at Clemson. Tigers offensive coordinator Jeff Scott, who was meeting a recruit on campus by Clemson's Memorial Stadium, saw two people running on the field under the emergency lights. Scott quickly realized that it was Watson and his freshman roommate, wide receiver Artavis Scott, now a Chargers rookie. They were using the flashlight on a phone to see the plays they were running. "They had only been on campus for about two weeks, and I knew right then, I was like, 'Wow,

Ohio State football
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 19:21:29 GMT)
J.T. Barrett has the clicker in his hand and a notebook in front of him as play after play is projected on the large screen in the Ohio State quarterback room. It is Tuesday, and Ohio State’s season-opener against Indiana is 44 days away. But already the quarterback is getting a jump on his final season as a Buckeye. He is analyzing the 2016 Hoosiers defense against Ohio State when the Buckeyes are in an “empty” formation — Barrett alone in the backfield. On one play, he second-guesses himself for throwing to a tightly covered receiver when another had more space on the other side of the field. On another, he believes he did the right thing when he took off running for a short gain rather than

WATCH: Mark Richt takes annual backflip off the high dive
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 16:36:03 GMT)
It’s been quite the summer for Mark Richt. His 2018 recruiting class is one of the best in the nation, he taught the nation the most efficient way to eat a sandwich, and on Friday he executed his annual high-dive backflip at a Hurricanes pool party. (In case you haven’t seen the sandwich bit, watch it below. It’ll change your life.) As SB Nation catalogues, Richt has made these backflips an annual thing since he was at Georgia in 2015. It was a skill he learned, he says, to impress the ladies after watching Greg Louganis (yes, that Greg Louganis) do it while they were students at Miami. Richt and Louganis both enrolled at the University of Miami in 1978, and the future Hurricanes’ coach and his

Nick Saban thinks skipping bowl games could lead to recruits doing same thing in high school
(Fri, 21 Jul 2017 21:26:15 GMT)
Grand Poobah of college football and Alabama head coach Nick Saban has had some interesting ideas about the sport over the years that conflict with the general consensus of his peers. The latest subject to fit that mold? How players like Leonard Fournette and Christian McCaffrey skipping their bowl games could filter down to the high school level with recruits. “Same thing will happen in high school if they make the signing day before the season,” Saban told CBS Sports. “It will take a few years, then some kid will say, ‘Hey, I’m going to Notre Dame. I’m not playing my senior year.'” The Crimson Tide coach is referencing not only the two tailbacks skipping bowl games but also the possibility

Friday at 4: Trust The Process
(Fri, 21 Jul 2017 20:00:36 GMT)
When Irish coach Brian Kelly previewed this past spring’s 15 practices, he said it eight different times. It was one of his seeming-clichés so relied upon, this scribe poked fun via everyone’s least favorite social medium. Following the Blue-Gold Game, Kelly said it eight times again. The day before, defensive coordinator Mike Elko used the buzzword four times. Following the spring finale, junior running back Dexter Williams said it twice. Junior quarterback Brandon Wimbush brought it up, as did sophomore quarterback Ian Book and senior safety and captain Drue Tranquill. Process. Process, process, process. It was sophomore defensive end Daelin Hayes, though, who phrased his sentence such that

Elite 2018 QB Corral commits to Gators
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 05:00:00 GMT)
Earlier Saturday afternoon, we asked whether the Florida Gators could reel in any of the big fish that were splashing around The Swamp last night for Friday Night Lights. Just after dinner, the Gators got a whopper in the boat. Five-star quarterback Matt Corral committed to the Florida Gators’ 2018 class today, at the tail end of his first visit to Florida, announcing the decision in a tweet just minutes after a source told Alligator Army he had done so. Jim McElwain confirmed the good news with his customary #ChompChomp tweet. Offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier was equally enthused. Corral is a California native and former USC commit. He decommitted from the Trojans this summer, and subsequently

West Virginia Gets Class of 2019 Commitment From Top Rated Kicking Specialist
(Sun, 23 Jul 2017 05:00:00 GMT)
The West Virginia Mountaineers just picked up their second commitment of the night, this one coming from the country’s No. 2 ranked kicker and punter, Kolton McGhee. McGhee is currently on campus for West Virginia’s Showtime Elite camp, which is currently underway, but took the time to announce his decision on Twitter. McGhee participated in the Kornblue Kicking Camp on West Virginia’s campus last month, placing first in the field goal kicking competition and second in the punting contest, and wowed Mountaineer assistant coach Mark Scott, earning him an invite to this evening’s special one-day camp. The Altoona, Pennsylvania native is rated as a three-star prospect by 247Sports, and the top-ranked kicker in the 2019 recruiting class.

Phil Steele's summer CFB betting guide
(Fri, 21 Jul 2017 14:42:20 GMT)
While we're still a ways from college football season, it's never too early to start looking at where the betting value lies for the upcoming season. Phil Steele covers all angles in this four-part betting guide, giving you the best summer bets to make. What do the Rice Owls and Florida Gators have in common? Phil has a strong take on how both teams will fare this season. Alabama is the betting favorite, but there are plenty of good options for teams farther down the board. Phil scans the board for his best Heisman Trophy value bets, led by Stanford running back Bryce Love. With lines out for many of the fall's most anticipated college football matchups, here's a look at the best bets to make

Michigan pulls recruiting director away from former Michigan coach’s staff
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 18:43:12 GMT)
Michigan is set to add Arizona recruiting czar Matt Dudek as its new director of recruiting, according to a report from FootballScoop on Saturday. CBS Sports’s Dennis Dodd confirmed the report, adding that Michigan is expected to formally announce the move at Big Ten media days on Monday. The irony, of course, is that Dudek will leave the staff of former Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez. Dudek had been with Rodriguez shortly after his late 2011 hiring, first as on-campus recruiting coordinator and player personnel director before being named college football’s first general manager after the 2015 season. He helped the Wildcats win the 2014 Pac-12 South championship and was named a finalist for FootballScoop‘s

Houston Texans must go slowly with rookie QB Deshaun Watson
(Fri, 21 Jul 2017 16:07:45 GMT)
HOUSTON -- Deshaun Watson has always been an unusually precocious quarterback. As a true freshman at Clemson, he delivered a touchdown pass during a road game at Georgia on just the sixth snap of his college career as he overtook starter Cole Stoudt. As a high school freshman at Gainesville High School in Georgia, Watson was named the starter and threw three touchdown passes in his first varsity game. The path to the Texans' starting job may not come as quickly, though, for the first-round draft pick and national championship winner from Clemson. Texans head coach Bill O'Brien has installed veteran Tom Savage as the starter over Watson and backup Brandon Weeden as the defending AFC South champions

Vols DC Shoop: Lawsuit won't be a distraction
(Fri, 21 Jul 2017 21:08:23 GMT)
Associated Press KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee defensive coordinator Bob Shoop doesn't expect a lawsuit filed against him by his former employer to be a distraction as the Volunteers' defense attempts to bounce back from a disappointing season. Penn State sued Shoop for breach of contract over the circumstances of his January 2016 departure. Shoop has filed a counterclaim indicating he was forced out rather than leaving Penn State on his own. "It's not a distraction at all," Shoop said. "The only time it's any distraction is when you guys bring it up." The lawsuit filed by Penn State earlier this year says Shoop was required to pay the university half his base salary for the remaining term of

17 for '17: Tennessee's most important players, No. 15
(Fri, 21 Jul 2017 18:00:00 GMT)
Tennessee is a little more than a week away from starting preseason training camp. With football time upon us, GoVols247 will help what's left of the summer to go by a little bit faster by counting down the 17 most important players for the new-look Vols in 2017. This countdown weighed a handful of factors, including a player's overall talent level, their importance to Tennessee's hopes of chasing the top spot in the SEC East and how significantly the Vols would be impacted by their possible absence. The stats belie the misfortunate. Tuttle, a top-10 defensive tackle prospect in the 2015 class according to the 247Sports Composite, has just 19 tackles, one tackle for loss, two fumble recoveries

Walter Camp releases 2017 Player of the Year Watch List
(Fri, 21 Jul 2017 16:32:00 GMT)
Another day, another watch list for a major college football world. The Walter Camp Foundation released their preseason watch list for the annual Player of the Year award and not surprisingly it has all of the usual stars from around the sport, including last year’s winner Lamar Jackson and the favorite for just about every award in 2017, USC’s Sam Darnold. The foundation didn’t just stick with quarterbacks and pass rushers however, they also did the noble thing and included one kicker and one punter on their watch list. Kudos for recognizing that special teams players are watch list candidates too. The full list is below. Quarterbacks Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming, Jr. Jake Browning, QB, Washington,

ASU Football: Paul Lucas’s name spotted on Sun Devils’ roster
(Sun, 23 Jul 2017 05:00:00 GMT)
A rather interesting development surrounding Arizona State football is in the works this weekend. The name of Paul Lucas surfaced on the Arizona State Sun Devils’ roster, and was brought to the attention of the fanbase by Joe Healey of Devils Digest and The Speak of the Devils’ Podcast on Saturday night. Lucas is a former multi-sport star who attended local Mountain Pointe High School. Rated a four-star prospect by ESPN, originally, Lucas verbally committed to play football for the Sun Devils on Christmas Day of 2014, spurning Notre Dame, UCLA, Utah, Washington, Oregon State and Tennessee in the process. However, Lucas later recanted on his commitment to ASU on National Signing Day just over

Freshman LB Nick Smith reportedly suffers knee injury
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 05:00:00 GMT)
Florida Gators freshman linebacker Nick Smith reportedly sustained an injury during a recent offseason workout. Smith was part of Florida’s 2017 recruiting class. Ryan Young of SEC Country quotes Smith’s father, Fernando Smith, who explains that his son is scheduled to receive further testing to assess the injury, but that it is presently believed to be a tear to the meniscus. The elder Smith went on to describe that the younger Smith’s knee “gave out” during activity. Smith is the second Gator to suffer an injury during the summer workouts that exist as a run-up to fall camp. However, it appears that his injury may not be as severe as the one that afflicted redshirt senior safety Marcell Harris,

Shockey, fellow UM greats, savor Paradise Camp. ‘The kids can’t be as excited as me.’
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 00:23:00 GMT)
The name conjures images of tranquil waters, lush palm trees and cool breezes. The faces conjure images of Super Bowl rings, college national championships, Hall of Fame inductions — and some of the top high school football players in the nation. Ed Reed, Jeremy Shockey, Michael Irvin, Devin Hester, Jon Beason, Jonathan Vilma, Vince Wilfork, Calais Campbell, D.J. Williams, Willis McGahee, Brett Romberg, Antrel Rolle, Bryant McKinnie and Kenny Phillips: Those are the former University of Miami greats who will gather Saturday night on campus for the second installment of Paradise Camp. “The kids can’t be as excited as me,” said Shockey, 36, the former first-round draft pick of the New York Giants

Oregon Ducks "Saturday Night Live" camp to include dozens of top prospects
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 05:00:00 GMT)
Willie Taggart has been a machine on the recruiting trail, and next weekend’s event at Autzen Stadium is just another example of his talent for drawing in the big names. The Ducks will be hosting a “Saturday Night Live” event at Autzen Stadium on July 29. It is open to the public and will feature some of the top high school stars in the nation that the Ducks have their eye on, including Willie Taggart’s son, a quarterback in the 2020 class. The interest in the event has been so overwhelming in fact, that the team needed to move it from the football practice fields to Autzen Stadium in order to accommodate the large crowds expected, something Mark Helfrich and his crew never could’ve pulled off.

Coastal Carolina coach Joe Mogila has precautionary surgery on trachea
(Fri, 21 Jul 2017 20:25:08 GMT)
Coastal Carolina is one of the newest members of the FBS ranks and the program’s first ever Sun Belt conference media day was supposed to be one of the highlights for the school transitioning the ranks in college football. Unfortunately for the Chanticleers, their head coach won’t be able to make it following a health scare. The Sun Belt released a statement Friday afternoon saying that Coastal Carolina assistant Jamey Chadwell will represent the team at media day after head coach Joe Mogila “had a precancerous nodule on his trachea and doctors wanted it removed as a precaution.” The 68-year-old Mogila is perhaps best known to those outside the sport for his time on Wall Street, including a productive

The Solid Verbal: Celebrating OL/DL with the SEC Network's Cole Cubelic
(Fri, 21 Jul 2017 13:00:41 GMT)
On our latest scheme tangent/celebration, we welcome on Cole Cubelic, analyst for the SEC Network (and former Auburn OL), onto the show to deep dive line play in 2017, both in the SEC and beyond. Topics and questions include: • Which line position, offensive or defensive, is particularly strong in the SEC this year? • Which line group nationally, isn't necessarily the most talented, but the best built for what that team is trying to do? • How difficult is it to be multiple on defense with limited practice time (at least compared to the NFL)? • Which sports is it encouraging to see offensive and defensive linemen play outside of football, and what skills do those sports help to develop? • Who's

Huskies’ recruiting class in rare territory with top quarterbacks Jacob Sirmon, Colson Yankoff
(Fri, 21 Jul 2017 15:36:28 GMT)
They met for the first time last month at the Elite 11 quarterback camp in Los Angeles. Jacob Sirmon and Colson Yankoff were together again last weekend during a summer camp at Husky Stadium, throwing passes and posing for pictures with fellow classmates from Washington’s 2018 recruiting class. “He’s a good guy for sure. I like him a lot,” Yankoff said of his early impressions of Sirmon. For the Huskies, there’s certainly much to like about how their 2018 class is shaping up, and Sirmon and Yankoff are two of the biggest reasons why. Sirmon, entering his senior season as the quarterback at Bothell High, and Yankoff, entering his senior season as the quarterback at Coeur d’Alene High, are each

Friday Five: Ranking the most amusing ends to coaching tenures in college football
(Fri, 21 Jul 2017 20:48:00 GMT)
There are typically three motives for firing your coach. The most common excuse for doing it is because the coach doesn't win enough games. It happens all the time, and this is, by far, the most boring motivation. I mean, anybody can be fired for being bad at their job, right? Then there are the times when a coach is fired simply because a better option has arisen. You know, like when you were in high school and dating that person who you thought was funny, but then suddenly the most popular kid in school asks you to the dance, and now that sense of humor isn't nearly as important. Finally, there's my favorite kind of firing. The fired (or resigning) in disgrace. Now, to be fair, there are two

Notre Dame 99-to-2: No. 9 Daelin Hayes, defensive end
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 10:00:13 GMT)
Listed Measurements: 6-foot-3 ½, 255 pounds 2017-18 year, eligibility: Sophomore with three years of eligibility remaining including the 2017 season. Depth chart: Hayes will start as the weakside, otherwise known as the boundary or drop, defensive end. Sophomores Julian Okwara and Ade Ogundeji back up Hayes, but neither has shown any likelihood of challenging him for playing time. Recruiting: A rivals.com five-star prospect, Hayes received interest from nearly every big-time program in the country despite having shoulder injuries cut short two of his prep seasons. The U.S. Army All-American chose the Irish over Ohio State, Michigan and Alabama. (Note: Due to one of those shoulder injuries, Hayes

Countdown To Kickoff
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 05:00:00 GMT)
As we continue counting down to kickoff, today we chose to spotlight a former defensive great who starred for Bob Stoops through the mid-2000s. With 42 days left until the Oklahoma Sooners take the field against UTEP, here’s a look back at standout linebacker Rufus Alexander. The Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and a first-team consensus All-American in 2006, Alexander became the first Sooner to lead the team in tackles for consecutive seasons (2005-06) since Rocky Calmus (1999-2001). He started 36 games in his OU career and didn’t miss a game during his last two seasons. In his landmark senior season, Alexander led the OU defense with 118 tackles including 12 for loss along with four forced

Auburn gets 1 for 2018 and 1 for 2019!
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 05:00:00 GMT)
Auburn snagged two recruits on Friday, as Gus Malzahn landed one for 2018 and for 2019. Four-star wide receiver George Pickens of Hoover, Alabama and three-star outside linebacker Josh Marsh of Decatur, Alabama committed to the Tigers on Friday. 247Sports’ Keith Niebuhr was first to report both commitments: Marsh is the 2018 recruit that Malzahn landed, the ninth such recruit for his class to this point. Auburn’s class ticks up to 10th in the SEC and 44th in the nation with the addition of the three-star linebacker, who is the seventh player of that caliber in the class. He’s also the fourth player from Alabama, joining Kameron Stutts of Killen, Shedrick Jackson of Hoover and Kolbi Fuqua of Cordova.
