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.

Rutgers redshirt sophomore LB Tyreek Maddox-Williams (knee) went through spring practice without any apparent physical issue.

Maddox-Williams (6'0/232) missed the entirety of the 2017 season after sustaining a severe ACL injury on a non-contact play at the beginning of August camp a year ago. He subsequently took a medical redshirt for the campaign. All systems would appear to be a-go heading into the summer, though, with OLB coach Toby Neinas saying earlier this spring that the linebacker was "moving very well." During a healthy 2016 season, Maddox-Williams registered 46 tackles. He's got a good chance of winning the starting strongside linebacker gig in preseason camp assuming he can avoid injury setback.

Rivals recruiting director Mike Farrell notes that Penn State five-star 2019 verbal RB commit Devyn Ford is "more of a one-cut guy" than former program star Saquon Barkley.

Ford (5'11/185) committed to Penn State on Friday. While there are some obvious similarities between he and Barkley -- they're both aces at catching the ball -- Farrell notes that while Ford does possess strong vision and instincts, he does not offer nearly the same shake 'n' bake elusiveness that helped make Barkley such a dynamic player. For what it's worth, Ford does land with a considerably higher recruiting ranking than Barkley did. Rivals slots him as the No. 9 overall prospect in the 2019 class, whereas Barkley sat at a far more modest No. 117 overall coming out of high school in 2015.

Rutgers OLB coach Toby Neinas said that redshirt sophomore LB Elorm Lumor is a "beautiful-looking kid."

"[Lumor]’s the way you picture it in your mind – that’s what you want an outside linebacker to look like," Neinas said during the spring. The 6-foot-3, 245-pound redshirt sophomore is expected to work as starter at the "jack" position this year, jack being the standup hybrid DE/OLB role that Kemoko Turay occupied previously. The Colts selected Turay in the second round of last month's draft. During the past campaign, Lumor logged 17 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble. Those numbers figure to be in for considerable expansion this coming season.

USF redshirt sophomore S Craig Watts transferred to Valdosta State.

Watts (6'0/185) signed on with USF as a three-star recruit in the winter of 2016. After donning a redshirt during his initial freshman foray into collegiate ball, he went on to appear in 12 games last season, recording five tackles in that space. As Watts is saying farewell to the FBS with his transfer to Valdosta State, he'll be eligible to play immediately during the upcoming campaign.

LSU four-star 2019 verbal T commit Anthony Bradford was named the position group MVP at the Rivals 3 Stripe camp regional in Chicago over the weekend.

"The way Bradford moves at [6-foot-5, 320 pounds] is remarkable, and he handled two smaller, quicker defensive ends with ease during the one-on-one session (in camp)," Helmholdt writes. While his size would seem more of a fit for the interior of the line, Helmholdt passes along that LSU plans on starting him out at right tackle. His athleticism makes that possible. On the Rivals rankings board for the 2019 cycle, Bradford ranks as the No. 186 overall prospect in the class.

NJ.com's James Kratch views Rutgers sophomore LB Tyshon Fogg as a potential breakout candidate for the upcoming season.

Fogg (6'2/215) was undone by injury -- missed six games -- during his freshman campaign with the Scarlet Knights in 2017, but flashed when healthy and given the opportunity to take the field. He initially enrolled in the program as a four-star recruit. He should have a chance to carve out a depth role this summer. Fogg could even potentially push for a starting role at weakside linebacker, but Trevor Morris figures to be a difficult hurdle to overcome after Morris led the Big Ten in tackles last season.

Florida and USF have agreed to a three-game series.

The Gators will play host in two of the three matchups, on Sept. 17, 2022, and Sept. 6, 2025. The other game in the newly-minted series will be played in Tampa, at Raymond James Stadium. That contest is scheduled for Sept. 9, 2023. In the lone previous showdown between these two squads back in 2010, Urban Meyer's Gators rolled the Bulls to the tune of a 38-14 victory in Gainesville.

Iowa three-star 2019 verbal TE commit Logan Lee was named the WR/TE group MVP at the Rivals 3 Stripe camp regional in Chicago over the weekend.

"Lee is never going to be a burner, but he is a technician who plays faster due to his knowledge of the position, route-running and how to set up defenders," writes Rivals analyst Josh Helmholdt of the 6-foot-5, 225-pounder out of Orion, Illinois. His performance in Chicago on Sunday may have been enough to help boost him up the Rivals board when the next incarnation of their rankings are released. Currently, he ranks as the No. 20 prospect in the state of Illinois for the 2019 cycle.

Nevada redshirt junior LB Devin Porter was arrested on Sunday for failure to appear in court.

Porter (6'2/200) is dealing with a traffic citation, but skipped out on his scheduled court date, leading to Sunday's arrest. The "failure to appear" charge is a misdemeanor. Nevada indicated in a statement that they are aware of the arrest and in the process of collecting information. Porter has yet to appear in a game during his time with the Wolf Pack.

NJ.com's James Kratch tagged Rutgers sophomore RB Raheem Blackshear as a potential breakout candidate for the coming season.

Scarlet Knights OC John McNulty referred to Blackshear as a "super kid" with "tremendous talent" during spring ball. After putting pen to paper with the program as a three-star recruit last winter, the 5-10, 185-pounder went on to rush for 238 yards and three touchdowns while catching seven passes for 133 yards and two additional scores as a true freshman. Expect the speedster's 4.6 touches-per-game mark from 2017 to rise considerably this year.

Uncommitted four-star 2019 DT Faatui Tuitele is working with a top five of Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State, Texas and Washington.

Tuitele (6'4/299) has already visited all five of the programs in question, with his trips to Clemson and Washington coming last year, joined by Alabama, Ohio State and Texas this year. USC Is another interested party in this equation -- he visited them recently -- but for the time being, remains on the outside looking in. Tuitele could potentially make a commitment before the summer's out. At this stage of his development, the Honolulu native often gets by just on his pure strength, but still needs to continue to refine the technical aspects of his game. Tuitele ranks as ESPN's No. 36 overall prospect in the 2019 class.

LSU four-star 2019 verbal G commit Kardell Thomas plans on utilizing his five official visits.

Thomas (6'4/328) remains very much in LSU's corner, but he'll be exploring his options before he shuts down his recruitment completely. He already took one of those official visits -- to USC -- earlier this month, with LSU (no surprise there) and Penn State also penciled in for such trips. As for his two remaining slots, Alabama, Miami, Oklahoma and Texas are all in play. Rivals ranks Thomas the No. 1 guard prospect in the 2019 class, No. 26 overall.

Bowling Green redshirt junior CB Cam Jefferies will transfer as a graduate.

Jefferies (5'10/183) started seven games during the 2017 season and posted 36 tackles and an interception for the campaign as a whole. He'll be graduating in August, leaving him two years of eligibility remaining once he settles on a future home. Bowling Green has a fair amount of depth in the secondary to make up for his loss.

Vanderbilt redshirt senior T Bailey Granier transferred to UCF as a graduate.

Granier (6'6/316) had actually earlier announced a transfer to Tulane -- he even attended the team's spring game -- but for reasons unknown has backed off that previous commitment. Count it as the Knights' gain. He started five games at right tackle during his career at Vanderbilt, including two contests this past season, but has experience all over the line outside of the center position. His exact place on the UCF depth chart will clarify over the summer.
