CBS Sports college football writer Tom Fornelli lists Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins as a likely breakout candidate for the 2018 season.

Haskins hasn't played much, but when he has been on the field, there have been flashes of electricity, as Fornelli notes. He also notes that he shows more arm talent than former starter J.T. Barrett, and he certainly can make plays with his legs as well. As Fornelli summarizes: "There are a lot of questions surrounding the Ohio State football program at the moment, but Haskins isn't one of them."

Pro Football Focus lists Miami senior S Jaquan Johnson as the top safety in the 2019 class.

Johnson is followed by Boston College's Lukas Denis in the second spot, with Wyoming's Andrew Wingard, Washington's Taylor Rapp and Maryland's Darnell Savage Jr. rounding out the top five. PFF notes Johnson's (5'10/190) "solid" ball skills, but do note that there's no standout part of his game, which could hurt his draft stock. Right now he looks like a potential first-round pick, but there seems to be a lot of fluctuation in grading the top defensive backs in this class, and there's a long way to go.

Oregon received a verbal commitment from 2019 four-star T Jonah Tauanu'u.

The commits keep on coming for the Ducks. Tauanu'u is one of the best offensive tackles on the west coast in the eyes of 247 Sports, and ranks 73rd overall and 12th among tackles in their rankings. He took unofficial visits to Oklahoma and Florida, and also was considering Michigan, Washington, Auburn, and Arizona; among others. At 6-foot-5, 317-pounds, Tauanu'u has the frame to be a bookend tackle, and he could be a candidate for early playing time in the Oregon offense. The Ducks remain the class of the Pac-12 according to the 247 Sports team rankings, and they come in fourth overall.

The Maryland Board of Regents are taking over the investigation into the death of deceased offensive lineman Jordan McNair.

The board voted unanimously to take over the investigation. As ESPN's Heather Dinich reports there are two investigations currently going on: One with Walters Inc., which was hired by Maryland to figure out whether staff members followed proper protocol in the treatment of McNair, the other investigation has to do with the reported toxic culture in the football program. This news comes a day after McNair's parents publicy stated that they did not believe that head coach D.J. Durkin should keep his job. There's no timeframe yet as to when the investigation will conclude.

Pro Football Focus grades Kansas State redshirt junior T Dalton Risner as the top tackle in the 2019 draft.

Risner has been an elite blocker according to PFF, earning a 91.3 grade in 2017. Ranked behind Risner in the top five are Alabama's Jonah Williams, Oklahoma's Bobby Evans, Clemson's Mitch Hyatt and Wisconsin's David Edwards. PFF notes that Risner is "one of the most technically-sound offensive linemen in this class." There are concerns about him as a pro prospect -- PFF admits he hasn't faced elite competition while with the Wildcats -- but he's an analytical darling who will likely go (relatively) high because of his strong numbers.

Washington received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 DT Jacob Bandes.

Bandes commits to the Huskies over schools like Oregon, California and UCLA, and he had visits with Oregon and Illinois scheduled that he's now cancelled. It's a significant pickup for the Huskies recruiting class, as Bandes ranks 88th overall on the 247 Sports top 100 and sixth among defensive tackles in their composite rankings. At 6-foot-3, 306-pounds, Bandes has the size to contribute right away, and with Greg Gaines graduating this year, he could have the opportunity, too. Washington's class currently ranks 32nd overall in the 247 Sports rankings, third in the Pac-12.

Alabama received a verbal commitment from four-star 2020 CB Malachi Moore.

Moore ranks 13th on 247 Sports list of cornerbacks, and the 5-foot-11, 171-pound defender ranks sixth among prospects from the state of Alabama on the recruiting site's list. Moore also had early offers from schools like Alabama, Florida, Clemson and LSU; and as we all know, a commitment this early is far from a certainty. That being said, it's another great get for the Crimson Tide for now, and Alabama's 2020 class ranks second in the nation on the 247 Sports list.

Minnesota offfensive coordinator Kirk Ciarrocca stated that redshirt freshman RB Mohamed Ibrahim is the clear No. 2 running back behind starter Rodney Smith.

Ciarocca has been very impressive in practices, and he's bulked to 5-foot-10, 205-pounds. The Gophers are expected to run the football -- a lot -- this season, so even if he's not the starter, it's fair to say that Ibrahim will get his share of touches in the offense. It also sounds like if there was an injury to Smith, the redshirt freshman would be the next in line. This is a player to monitor in 2018, and potentially beyond.
