Transferring Stanford redshirt senior QB Keller Chryst will visit Tennessee this weekend.

Chryst (6'5/236) will not be graduating until June, meaning that his transfer is going to be more "eventual" than "imminent." As of yet, the Vols have not extended a scholarship offer to the gunslinger, who is moving on after being supplanted by K.J. Costello as starter for the Cardinal during this past season. He's not the only transferring quarterback intrigued by the Vols -- you can count ECU's Gardner Minshew in that same boat. The appeal with Tennessee comes in what should be an open competition at starting signal-caller this spring and summer. Quinten Dormady is transferring out, while Jarrett Guarantano largely failed to impress in his starting opportunities after Dormady was sidelined by shoulder surgery midway through the 2017 campaign. Guarantano and sophomore Will McBride figure to see the bulk of work in competition as matters currently stand, but they might have company soon enough.

Walter Football's Charlie Campbell reports that Florida S Marcell Harris (Achilles) will not be healthy enough to take part in athletic testing at the NFL Scouting Combine.

It's unfortunate for Harris, who certainly could have used a testing stage to make his case for a late Day 3 selection. As is, looks like that show in Indy won't come to pass. The 6-foot-1, 211-pounder tore his right Achilles in July and subsequently missed the 2017 campaign while on the recovery trail. He's been training in Pensacola this winter.

Transferring ECU senior QB Gardner Minshew said that he has been in contact with both Tennessee and Auburn.

Looks like there could be some competition for Alabama on this one, though it should be noted that neither Auburn nor Tennessee has offered Minshew as of yet. Alabama has extended an offer and the 6-foot-2, 216-pounder will be off on a visit to Tuscaloosa on Friday. While that outwardly would seem like something of an awkward fit given that the champs already house Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts, Minshew shed some light on his thought process while speaking with Sports Illustrated this week, explaining that he is interested in coaching after his collegiate career is over and would love to see Nick Saban work his magic. Beyond that, he said that he "want[s] to be part of something special." Breaking down the other potential contenders, here, Tennessee's situation would offer him a a chance to compete for playing time come August camp. Auburn, not so much.

Walter Football's Charlie Campbell reports that Wisconsin LB Jack Cichy (knee) will not be able to participate in athletic testing at the NFL Scouting Combine.

This was always a possibility after Cichy sat out the entirety of the 2017 season while rehabbing from a torn ACL sustained in August camp. The 6-foot-2, 233-pounder's draft standing is understandably in flux now. Campbell assigns him a grade for Rds. 4-6, NFLDraftScout is more conservative, applying a Rds. 6-7 grade, while Draft Analyst pegs him with a sixth-round projection. It's not clear at this juncture just when Cichy will be at full health, though he figures to be ready for NFL training camp this summer assuming he does not suffer a setback in recovery.

Football Scoop reports that Temple defensive quality control assistant Josh Linam is leaving to become the head coach for the Monash Warriors in Australia's Gridiron Victoria League.

Linam will be heading down under after working for one year at Temple. He's previously spent solitary years with Florida (2016) and UCF (2015).

Marshall redshirt sophomore DT Larry Aaron passed away following complications from a New Year's Eve shooting which had left him paralyzed.

Aaron was paralyzed after he was struck in the back by a stray bullet while at a New Year's Eve party. He took the bullet while stepping in front of his girlfriend in order to protect her. After almost two months struggling with complications, sadly, the defensive tackle has passed away. In a statement, HC Doc Holliday said, "His loss will be felt in every corner of our program and his spirit will never be forgotten." Aaron was just 19 years old.

An NFC scouting director called Alabama DB Anthony Averett "a solid starter but not great to me."

"[Averett] can run but he won't blow you away by his speed. He can cover but he won't make a lot of plays. He can tackle but he's not a tough Alabama cornerback," the scouting director explained. NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares the 6-foot, 185-pounder to Bills CB Tre'Davious White, who was selected out of LSU in the first round of last spring's draft. Our general expectation for Averett in terms of draft slot would be a second- or third-round selection. He should show out well in athletic testing at the NFL Scouting Combine next week -- he excelled at long jump, high jump and the 100-meter dash during as a high schooler.

Walter Football's Charlie Campbell passes along that Wake Forest edge rusher Duke Ejiofor (shoulder) will not be healthy enough to participate in athletic testing at the NFL Scouting Combine.

No real surprise, here, as Ejiofor went under the knife to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder near the end of January. Not only is the 6-foot-4, 270-pounder going to miss festivities in Indianapolis, his availability for pro day work is very much in doubt barring a rapid turnaround on the recovery front. It's unfortunate that he won't be able to show out in testing, as he's a top-notch athlete. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline does not believe that Ejiofor's surgery is going to result in a draft drop. The Wake Forest standout is still expected to fly off the board by the end of Day 2 or relatively early on Day 3.
