Pitt added an additional title of "assistant head coach" to DL coach Charlie Partridge.

This won't change Partridge's role working with the defensive line, but he had been connected to a recent open job at Alabama and the new title serves to reinforce Pitt's commitment to Partridge's staying with the program. He initially joined HC Pat Narduzzi's outfit last winter.

Pitt hired Western Michigan DB coach Cory Sanders to serve as safeties coach.

Sanders comes over to the Panthers after spending one season at Western Michigan, his first season coaching at the FBS level. In a statement, HC Patt Narduzzi referred to Sanders as a "relentless recruiter."

Uncommitted five-star 2019 CB Chris Steele said that he will make his commitment on Sept. 27.

Steele (6'1/182) looks like he'll be keeping us in suspense all through the summer. He'll be a busy young man in about a month, having scheduled official spring visits with Louisville (April 6), Oklahoma (April 14) and LSU (April 21). He'll also be out on official to Gainesville come Sept. 8, when he checks out the Gators' wares. A number of blue chip programs are in play for his final official trip, with Alabama, Michigan, USC and Texas A&M among those he's considering. Rivals ranks Steele as the No. 17 overall prospect in the 2019 class. While he does not necessarily offer elite top-end speed and could potentially end up shifting to safety at some point down the road, he possesses an aces combination of length, tackling prowess and range. He's also a tremendously smart player who is not afraid to mix it up against the run.

The Des Moines Register's Tommy Birch reports that the Indianapolis Colts will hire Iowa State OC/OL coach Tom Manning to serve as tight ends coach.

Cyclones HC Matt Campbell has already confirmed that Manning will be off to the NFL, with Birch filling in the gap by naming his team-to-be as the Colts. Said Campbell, "A really good situation for him and I’m really, really happy and proud of him to be honest with you. I think it’s a really good opportunity for him." Good opportunity though it may be for Manning, it comes at a precious juncture for Iowa State, as the program will be booting up spring practice shortly. Expect a replacement offensive coordinator and offensive line coach to be named in the very near future.

An NFL GM said of Penn State RB Saquon Barkley, "Any concerns you file on him just feels like nitpicking to fill out the report."

"You don't screw up the special ones when you are a talent evaluator. This guy is special," the general manager explained. In a draft media universe which rarely settles on a true consensus, Barkley is one player seemingly everybody loves. For good reason. NFL Media's Lance Zierlein has gone so far as to compare the 5-foot-11, 222-pounder to former Oklahoma State and Detroit Lions star Barry Sanders. The analyst writes that Barkley "has a chance to become an early All-Pro no matter which team takes him." He has an outside shot at landing as the third overall pick to the Colts -- we think there's a solid chance they trade that selection -- but he's probably capped at rising higher than that, as the quarterback-needy Browns and Giants occupy the first two picks. There has been some talk that he could actually slide a little, simply due to positional needs for the top drafting teams.

Indiana freshman RB Ronnie Walker Jr. could be a legitimate player in the Hoosiers backfield in 2018.

Morgan Ellison posted 704 yards and six touchdowns in 2017. He figures to be Indiana's lead back, at least early on, but there's a lot to like about true frosh Walker. He's a far different type of runner from the 6-foot-1, 225-pound Ellison, whose game is largely predicated on bulldozing through people. Walker (5'11/198) is bouncier, with Hoosier Huddle's Nathan Comp writing that he possesses "impressive speed and change of direction capabilities." His speed was likewise singled out by Indiana RB coach Mike Hart when Walker initially put pen to paper with the program on National Signing Day earlier this month. Helping the freshman's chances at playing time, he's already enrolled in classes and will be participating in spring practice.

The expectation is that Auburn junior RB Kam Martin will enter the spring as the team's starting back.

Auburn is out Kerryon Johnson and Kamryn Pettway, both of whom declared for the draft earlier this winter. Martin (5'10/175) makes for the logical lead contender to take over as starter for Johnson. During the 2017 season, he was second on the team in rushing behind Kerryon, posting 453 rushing yards (6.1 YPC) and a pair of touchdowns on 74 carries. Devan Barrett, Malik Miller and JaTarvious Whitlow are among the players in the Auburn running backs room who could potentially make a push should Martin falter in taking on a bigger load.

South Carolina redshirt senior LB Bryson Allen-Williams (shoulder) will be a limited participant in spring practice.

Allen-Williams (6'3/230) managed to appear in just three games during the 2017 campaign before he was sidelined by a season-ending shoulder injury. He would undergo surgery to repair that concern and subsequently took a medical redshirt. While South Carolina will take a cautious approach to his workload this spring, the expectation here is that Allen-Williams will be ready to roll for the start of August camp. If healthy, he's a likely starter. During a clean 2016 campaign, he registered 75 tackles (8.5 for loss), two sacks, a pair of interceptions and a forced fumble.
