Miami redshirt freshman QB N'Kosi Perry has been named starter for Saturday's game against Georgia Tech.

Perry had been splitting first-team reps with Malik Rosier during practice this week. That Rosier even entered this equation, at all, was a misstep from HC Mark Richt. Perry had initially been named starter at the end of September, but following just three starts, he was benched in favor of the upperclassman. It was a short-sighted move -- and one that we did not agree with at the time -- which only served to put a minor roadblock in the way of Perry's development. Whether he turns into a respectable starter is an open question, but there was never a point to returning to Rosier to begin with after Perry initially received the call.

Miami OC Dan Enos refuted a story from The Athletic's Bruce Feldman in which it was depicted that he left Alabama without informing HC Nick Saban.

"I would never leave an employer without telling them I was doing so. No ghosting here," Enos tweeted, explaining that he has "nothing but respect" for Alabama and Saban. Feldman's story depicts a coaches meeting several days after the team's National Championship Game loss to Clemson in which Saban repeatedly asks, "Where is Dan?" (with a bit of colorful language mixed in). Per Feldman, a staffer then ran to Enos' office only to discover it all cleared out beyond a solitary pencil left on the desk. Miami officially hired the Alabama quarterbacks coach to serve as offensive coordinator on Friday. Unless Saban or somebody else on his staff weighs in, here, we're unlikely to get to the bottom of all of this.

The Sporting News' Michael McCarthy reports that FOX Sports is nearing a deal with former Ohio State HC Urban Meyer.

According to McCarthy, Meyer is being given the option to either work in the broadcast booth or as a studio analyst. It's not immediately clear which role he would prefer, here. If you're getting a sense of deja vu, it's because we have already been through a similar song-and-dance with Meyer following his Florida retirement back in 2011. He spent the next year as a broadcaster before resurfacing on the sidelines as Ohio State's head coach. We'll have to wait and see if a television gig once again serves as a slight breather before a jump out of retirement. Meyer hung up the headset for a second time -- and allegedly for good -- following OSU's win over Washington in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1.

Texas redshirt freshman QB Cameron Rising transferred to Utah.

247Sports' Chip Brown earlier reported that this was in the works, with Rising himself tweeting out confirmation on Thursday evening. The 6-foot-2, 230-pound redshirt sophomore did not attempt a pass during his time in Austin after signing on with the program as a four-star recruit in the 2018 class. Because he did not appear in a game, he'll be able to preserve a year of eligibility via a redshirt. Barring an NCAA waiver, Rising will be required to sit out the 2019 season in order to satisfy transfer regulations.

Notre Dame redshirt senior QB Brandon Wimbush transferred to UCF as a graduate.

Wimbush (6'2/222) enters into an interesting quarterbacks room at UCF, as his shot at starting in the fall will likely come down to just how far along McKenzie Milton is in his recovery from the brutal leg injury he sustained at the end of the 2018 campaign. We won't have a clear idea just how close Milton is to resuming football activities until the spring/summer. It's not a given that he will be able to play football this coming season. For his part, Wimbush brings a plus-rushing ability (804 yards on the ground, plus 14 touchdowns in 2017) and very, very little as a passer (50.5-percent completions for his career) to the Knights roster.

Uncommitted five-star 2019 DT Ishmael Sopsher is planning to take official visits to Ole Miss, LSU and Alabama before National Signing Day.

It's going to be a frenzied finish to the cycle for Sopsher, who will not start out on this last slate of officials until next week. The 6-foot-4, 294-pounder is currently in Hawaii for the Polynesian Bowl, though he will not be taking part in the game proper as he is currently dealing with a shoulder injury. Sopsher already earlier took official visits to Texas A&M and Oregon. Florida State and Texas are also in the running for his pledge. Still much to be sorted out, here. As for his on-field game, 247Sports analyst Barton Simmons writes that the Amite, Louisiana, native is a "[d]ensely built defender with a powerful lower-half and a thick upper-half who brings mass without a lot of bad weight," one who possesses "natural strength and punch." On the outlet's composite rankings board, Sopsher slots in at No. 32 overall for the 2019 cycle. He does not plan on announcing his school of choice until National Signing Day.

ESPN's Mark Schlabach reports that SMU is a potential transfer destination for Texas redshirt junior QB Shane Buechele.

Buechele (6'1/210) has entered into the NCAA transfer portal as he explores his future options outside of Austin. The Mustangs make for a logical potential landing spot, as they just lost Ben Hicks to an Arkansas transfer. Buechele saved a year of eligibility via a redshirt this past season after appearing in just two games, and to make matters all the sweeter for potential suitors such as SMU, the quarterback is set to graduate in May, meaning that he will be eligible to play immediately come the start of the 2019 campaign. Back in 2016, Buechele threw for 2,958 yards with a 21/11 TD/INT ratio while starting 12 games. He has since been supplanted as starter by Sam Ehlinger.

Miami redshirt sophomore QB N'Kosi Perry does not plan on transferring.

"N’Kosi is looking forward to what [OC Dan Enos] can bring to the quarterbacks," said Roberta, the quarterback's mother. The 6-foot-4, 185-pound redshirt sophomore appeared in 11 games -- making six starts -- during the 2018 season. He was yanked around somewhat by former HC Mark Richt, who flip-flopped between Perry and Malik Rosier at points throughout the campaign. All told, Perry finished out the 2018 campaign having thrown for 1,091 yards (50.8-percent completions) with a 13/6 TD/INT ratio while rushing for 169 yards and a score. He will be competing with Jarren Williams and Cade Weldon for starting honors this offseason, though OSU transfer Tate Martell could shake this all up considerably should he receive an eligibility waiver from the NCAA.

Michigan State RB LJ Scott (ankle) has been ruled out for the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Scott (6'1/225) dealt with a multitude of injuries during the 2018 season, missing so much time that he actually would have been eligible for a redshirt had he not participated in MSU's Redbox Bowl showdown with Oregon at the end of December. Given the large, large chunk of time that he has already missed in the recent past -- as well as his generally underwhelming play when healthy -- it would have been a nice beat for his draft stock had he at least managed to show a little something in Mobile. As is, no dice. Scott is going to need a strong combine upcoming, because he really hasn't given evaluators much to work with over the past year.

Michigan EDGE Chase Winovich (ankle) will not participate in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Winovich (6'3/255) has been dealing with an ankle injury requiring surgery, but as of late December had been planning on delaying that procedure to push through to take part in the Senior Bowl and NFL Scouting Combine. It's not immediately clear whether he has since gone under the knife. We'll update Winovich's status and outlook as information becomes available. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline stamps him with a Round 4 grade at this juncture.

In his first mock draft of 2019, ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. projected the Dolphins to select Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray with the 13th overall selection.

Kiper writes that "if [Murray] goes to the combine -- he's going to run a blazing 40-yard dash -- and goes through workouts for teams, I expect him to be picked in Round 1." As the draft season unfolds, you can expect Murray to be mocked to a variety of draft slots, as he is something of a polarizing prospect. For instance, in his latest mock, Bleacher Report's Matt Miller pushes the Heisman winner all the way to No. 7 with the Jaguars. All of this, of course, is dependent on Murray not simply showing up at spring training for the Oakland A's next month.

Oklahoma freshman QB Spencer Rattler expressed little concern over the transfer of Alabama senior QB Jalen Hurts.

While Rattler relayed to reporters at the end of December that HC Lincoln Riley had told him that the team would not be pursuing a transfer quarterback, Riley came back to him a few weeks later to explain that "we need an older quarterback in the room," with the four-star freshman telling 247Sports that he had no issue with this -- and had a hunch it was coming following Austin Kendall's leap into the transfer portal earlier this month. The 6-foot, 165-pound Rattler will be competing with Hurts and Tanner Mordecai for starting honors in 2019. He signed with the Sooners as a four-star recruit back in December.
