Michigan redshirt junior T Grant Newsome (knee) is hopeful that he will be able to play this coming season, but said that it will be up to doctors.

Newsome (6'7/318) sustained a dislocated knee in October of 2016 and has been put through rehab hellfire in the intervening year-plus. Doctors had some initial fear that he might end up losing his right leg. He would ultimately undergo six surgical procedures in the span of 40 days. Newsome subsequently took a medical redshirt for the 2017 season. He's been going through conditioning work with the team this winter, but will need medical clearance if he's to participate in spring practice (starting March 22). The tackle acknowledged that it's not out of the realm of possibility that doctors recommend retirement. Expect an update on Newsome's status as we draw closer to spring practice.

Indefinitely suspended USC sophomore WR Joseph Lewis has reached a plea deal in which he's plead no contest to a pair of domestic battery charges.

Lewis looked like he was heading to trial in his ongoing domestic violence case -- the charges against him stemmed from two alleged incidents of domestic violence that precipitated his arrest in February -- but has now accepted the plea deal which he had initially ejected late last week. The fallout: Lewis will be on summary probation for 36 days, has been banned from possessing, using or owning a firearm for the next 10 years and will be required to take part in weekly domestic violence treatment program for the next 10 years. He'll also be serving 60 days time in the county jail (starting on June 15), though good behavior and such could get that knocked down to 30 days. In addition to all this, a protective order remains in place preventing the sophomore from approaching within 100 yards of the victim in this case. With his legal matters now put to an end, it remains to be seen whether USC is ready to reinstate him in good standing. He's hopeful he can return to the team by the start

USC and Alabama have officially agreed to a season-opening contest for Sept. 5, 2020, in Arlington, Texas.

Reports of this match-up have been floating about this spring. It's official, now. The last time the two teams met -- opening the 2016 season -- it proved to be one of the more impactful games in recent memory for reasons far beyond the 52-6 final margin for Alabama. Midway through the contest, Jalen Hurts took over for Blake Barnett at quarterback for the Tide, while on the Trojans' sideline, we saw an inept Max Browne-led offense which would be helmed by Sam Darnold just weeks later.

With Georgia Tech's new multi-year APR (academic progress rate) standing at 980, HC Paul Johnson's $100,000 contract bonus has gone into effect.

The Yellow Jackets posted a single-year APR mark of 974. Johnson's crew merely had to hit 950 for him to earn his bonus. Among the other coaches to take home some extra ice cream money on the basis of how their kids performed when hitting the books, Gus Malzahn ($75,000), Ed Orgeron ($75,000) and Will Muschamp ($50,000) all took home nice bonuses. Two other APR notes: Northwestern's 997 multi-year mark led all FBS programs, while Florida State's multi-year mark of 941 scraped the bottom of the barrel.

Transferring Clemson freshman DT Josh Belk is visiting South Carolina and Georgia this week.

Belk (6'3/325) will be checking out the Gamecocks on Wednesday and the Bulldogs on Thursday. South Carolina could have an inside track, here. The former four-star defensive tackle was seeing heavy interest from HC Will Muschamp and staff throughout the most recent recruiting cycle and said that he was very close to signing with the program before he ultimately sided with Clemson. Coastal Carolina is also a potential player, here, though they should be considered a longshot for Belk's services. Having enrolled early at Clemson, this move -- wherever it might take him in the FBS -- is going to cost him the 2018 season, as he'll be required to sit it out to satisfy transfer regulations.

Tulane extended HC Willie Fritz through the 2023 season.

A little two-year extension for Fritz, here. While he has yet to find his groove with the Green Wave, this makes for a nice show of support from the athletic department. Fritz took over as head coach in December of 2015. In his first two seasons at the helm of the ship, the program's turned in a 9-15 record. It fell just short of bowl eligibility last season.

Rivals' Ira Schoffel reports that Florida State has suspended redshirt sophomore T Josh Ball for accusations of dating violence.

Per Schoffel, the decision to suspend Ball was reached by an FSU judiciary panel. This suspension stems from allegations made by Sandra Sellers, a former girlfriend who filed for a protective injunction last September in which she alleged that Ball was a "violent person." There were 11 alleged incidents cited in that injunction. Just how long Ball's suspension will last is not clear at this juncture, but should it stretch into August and beyond, Seminoles HC Willie Taggart and staff will have to begin sorting through alternate starting options at left tackle (Ball started the final nine contests of the 2017 season). Jauan Williams, Mike Arnold and Derrick Kelly are all candidates to fill in for Ball should he be sidelined for long.

Penn State received a verbal commitment from five-star 2019 LB Brandon Smith.

Smith has been considered a lean for the Nittany Lions for some time, but now it's official -- or as official as it can get with a verbal commitment, anyway. The 6-foot-4, 223-pound linebacker was also considering Clemson, Ohio State, Texas A&M and several other big-name schools. It's a huge get for the Nittany Lions already strong class, as he ranks as the number two inside linebacker on 247 Sports composite rankings, and 32nd overall. This could be an immediate contributor for James Franklin and company when he enrolls at some point in 2019.

Clemson sophomore QB Hunter Johnson will transfer.

Johnson was considered one of the top prospects in the 2017 class at the quarterback position, but the arrival of five-star signal-caller Trevor Lawrence and the presence of incumbent starter Kelly Bryant made it difficult to project Johnson becoming a starter for the Tigers anytime soon. In limited playing time, he completed 77 percent of his passes for 234 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Expect plenty of schools to have interest in the 6-foot-3, 200-pound quarterback, as he offers big-time upside at the position. Assuming Johnson transfers to an FBS school, he'll have to sit out the 2018 season -- assuming he doesn't receive clearance from the NCAA to play immediately.

Redshirt junior G Dallas Warmack is transferring from Alabama to Oregon.

Warmack (6'2/313) was rumored to be heading to Oregon as soon as he announced his decision to transfer earlier in May, but now it's official. Because he's transferring as a graduate, he'll be immediately eligible to play for the Ducks, and will also have two years of eligibility. He's the brother of Chance Warmack, a former first-round pick of the Tennessee Titans back in 2013.

Nebraska junior C Michael Decker announced that he's stepping away from football.

It's effectively a "retirement" for Decker, who started five games at center for Nebraska in 2017. The 6-foot-4, 305-pound lineman was sidelined with a knee injury in October, and Decker announced on Twitter that he could "no longer [accommodate] football's commitments." Cole Conrad and Hunter Miller are the most likely candidates to start at center for the Cornhuskers in 2018.

A USC spokesperson has confirmed that junior CB Jack Jones will not be eligible to participate in the upcoming season.

While this spokesperson did not offer a reason for Jones' ineligibility, Adam Maya of Rivals reported on Friday that it was due to a failure to make the cut academically. The 5-foot-11, 175-pounder did not take part in spring practice while attempting to shore up his studies. With Jones ineligible, the Trojans will have to lean all the harder on the likes of Iman Marshall and Isaiah Langley during the upcoming season, but USC is set up well to handle the loss in terms of their depth at the position on the whole. Indeed, corner might be the deepest position on the entire team.
