Previous 25 Notes Next 25 Notes
01/11/16 - *Jaylon Smith, Jr, Notre Dame, 6-3, 240 (DS#4 OLB) [Newsfeed]
Notre Dame linebacker Jaylon Smith announced Monday he will skip his final year of eligibility and enter the NFL draft despite sustaining a serious injury to his left knee in the Fiesta Bowl. With many projecting Smith as a possible top 10 draft pick, the decision to forgo his senior season was expected before his injury in the first quarter against Ohio State. Smith has led the Irish in tackles the past two seasons and this year won the Butkus Award, given to college football's best linebacker. Smith made the announcement by a videotaped message released on Twitter, saying "It's really just perseverance from here with the adversity I'm going through right now dealing with the knee injury." Smith has not disclosed the extent of his knee injury. - AP Sports

01/04/16 - KeiVarae Russell, rJr, Notre Dame, 5-11, 196 (DS#999 CB) [Newsfeed]
Notre Dame cornerback KeiVarae Russell is entering the NFL draft. Russell, a senior who could have petitioned the NCAA for another year of eligibility, finished fourth on the team with 60 tackles despite missing the final two games with a broken right leg. He had two interceptions, two forced fumbles, a sack and broke up four passes. Russell said on Twitter that he was grateful for his time at Notre Dame and thanked coach Brian Kelly. Russell was suspended from school last year for academic dishonesty. Kelly has said Russell would have had to petition the NCAA if he wanted to return. Irish receiver Will Fuller, running back C.J. Prosise and offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley also are entering the draft. Linebacker Jaylon Smith hasn't announced his decision. - AP Sports

01/02/16 - Curt Maggitt, rSr, Tennessee, 6-3, 256 (DS#22 OLB) [Newsfeed]
Tennessee defensive end/linebacker Curt Maggitt has decided not to seek a sixth year of eligibility from the NCAA. In an Instagram post Saturday, Maggitt wrote "thank you so much for the memories the past 5 years Tennessee! I will truly miss everything about being a UT football player!" Tennessee athletic department spokesman Ryan Robinson confirmed Maggitt had decided not to petition for a sixth season. After Maggitt recorded 11 sacks in 2014, the fifth-year senior injured his hip in the second game of the 2015 season and never returned. Maggitt could have sought a sixth year of eligibility because he already had redshirted in 2013 due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Tennessee (9-4) closed its season Friday with a 45-6 Outback Bowl victory over No. 12 Northwestern. - AP Sports

01/01/16 - *Jaylon Smith, Jr, Notre Dame, 6-3, 240 (DS#4 OLB) [Newsfeed]
Notre Dame standout linebacker Jaylon Smith was helped from the field with an apparent leg injury early in Friday's Fiesta Bowl. Smith, a junior and potential high NFL draft pick, landed awkwardly after being pushed by an Ohio State player and had to be helped off the field, putting no weight on his left leg. A short time later, he was taken to the locker room on a cart. Smith is Notre Dame's leading tackler and winner of the Butkus Award as the nation's best linebacker. - AP Sports

12/29/15 - Rees Odhiambo, rSr, Boise State, 6-4, 305 (DS#11 OG) [Newsfeed]
2015 ALL-MOUNTAIN WEST FIRST TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): OL Rees Odhiambo, Sr., Boise State...Marcus Henry, now a two-time first-team pick at center, and Rees Odhiambo, Boise State's left tackle who earned his first selection to the first team after earning a second-team nod in 2014, help anchor the offensive line of the top-scoring offense in the Mountain West and 16th-best in the nation (37.8 ppg). The duo provides strong combined pass and run-blocking, as Boise State leads the Mountain West in total offense (488.8 yards per game) and passing offense (304.3 yards per game) while ranking 20th and 16th, respectively, in the nation in those categories. - Boise State Football

12/28/15 - Jake Duzey, rSr, Iowa, 6-3, 248 (DS#26 TE) [Newsfeed]
Iowa tight end Jake Duzey will not play in the Rose Bowl against Stanford after aggravating a knee injury in practice. Duzey tore his patella tendon in spring practice, and played in nine game on a limited basis. After finishing with 36 catches in 2014, most among Big Ten tight ends, Duzey did not catch a pass this season. The school made the announcement Sunday. Iowa tight ends Henry Krueger Coble and George Kittle filled in and combined for 52 catches for 675 yards and seven touchdowns. Krueger Coble is second on the team in receptions and third in yards receiving. The Rose Bowl is Friday. - AP Sports

12/21/15 - Michael Gordon, Sr, Arkansas State, 5-09, 187 (DS#62 RB) [Newsfeed]
2015 SUN BELT SECOND TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): Michael Gordon (Arkansas State, Sr., RB, Interdisciplinary Studies)...A-State’s second-team choices included senior quarterback Fredi Knighten (Little Rock, Ark.), senior running back Michael Gordon (Byhalia, Miss.), senior wide receivers Tres Houston (College Park, Ga.) and McKissic, senior defensive end Chris Stone (Daleville, Ala.), junior linebacker Xavier Woodson-Luster (Eufaula, Ala.), and junior defensive back Cody Brown (Bellville, Texas). - Arkansas State Football

12/19/15 - *Corey Coleman, rJr, Baylor, 5-10, 190 (DS#2 WR) [Newsfeed]
All-America receiver Corey Coleman has apparently played his last game for No. 18 Baylor, which will also be without top running back Shock Linwood in the Russell Athletic Bowl. Coach Art Briles said after practice Saturday that Coleman and top running back Shock Linwood will miss the Dec. 29 game against No. 15 Oregon. Coleman, a junior who has already said he will bypass his senior year for early entry in the NFL draft, will have hernia surgery Monday. Linwood has already had surgery on a broken bone in his foot. Coleman had 76 catches for a Big 12-leading 1,363 yards and an FBS-best 20 touchdowns this season. Linwood had 1,329 yards rushing with 10 touchdowns this season. - AP Sports

12/19/15 - Mike Williams, Jr, Clemson, 6-3, 220 (DS#1 WR) [Newsfeed]
Injured Clemson receiver Mike Williams said Friday he'll return to the Tigers next season. Williams was a 1,000-yard receiver last season and figured to be a key part of the top-ranked Tigers' offense this season. Instead, he injured his neck after running into the goalpost stanchion in Clemson's opening game with Wofford and has not played since. There was a chance the 6-foot-4, 220-pound junior might've finished his rehab in the NFL and declared for the draft. But Williams said he had unfinished business at Clemson. Williams said he could take part in all drills in spring practice, but will probably sit out contract work until the fall. Williams had 57 catches for 1,030 yards and six touchdowns as a sophomore in 2014. - AP Sports

12/17/15 - Aaron Jones, Jr, Texas-El Paso, 5-10, 205 (DS#30 RB) [Newsfeed]
2015 ALL CONFERENCE-USA HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES): RB - Aaron Jones, UTEP, Jr.,...Aaron Jones played in the first two games of the season before sustaining a season ending injury. The junior rushed for 209 yards on 32 attempts (6.5 avg.) and a touchdown. The El Paso native gained 139 yards on 17 carries, including a school-record 91-yard sprint for a touchdown and had a 24-yard touchdown catch versus Texas Tech. - UTEP Football

12/16/15 - Tyler Higbee, rSr, Western Kentucky, 6-5, 233 (DS#4 TE) [Newsfeed]
2015 ALL CONFERENCE-USA FIRST TEAM (COACHES): TE - Tyler Higbee, WKU, Sr.,...Another of Doughty's targets, Tyler Higbee has enjoyed a breakout season at tight end to be named All-C-USA first team. The CBS Midseason All-American is tied for the most touchdowns among FBS tight ends with eight. - WKU Hilltopper Football

12/14/15 - Josh Doctson, rSr, TCU, 6-2, 195 (DS#4 WR) [Newsfeed]
2015 ALL-BIG 12 FOOTBALL FIRST TEAM (COACHES): WR Josh Doctson, TCU, Sr.,...Doctson, a first-team USA Today All-American and finalist for the Biletnikoff Award and Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award, leads the nation with 132.7 receiving yards per game.

In starting all 12 games, he has 74 catches for 1,363 yards and is a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award.

The junior tallied 1,329 yards and 10 touchdowns on 196 rushes, while starting all 12 games for BU, which led the league in rushing and ranked fourth nationally with 300.2 yards per game.

12/10/15 - *Jaylon Smith, Jr, Notre Dame, 6-3, 240 (DS#4 OLB) [Newsfeed]
2015 BUTKUS AWARD WINNER: Recognizing the nation's premier linebacker at the high school, collegiate and professional levels, the Butkus Award has only twice seen someone win at both of the first two steps. Notre Dame's Jaylon Smith continued the legacy of Irish linebacking dominance on Tuesday when he joined Manti Te'o in this exclusive club. Smith, the 2012 high school recipient at Bishop Luers High School in Fort Wayne, Indiana, was named as the 2015 collegiate winner after compiling a 113-tackle season at the heart of the Irish defense. A team captain, the versatile and athletic Smith is the first Notre Dame player with at least 113 tackles, nine tackles for loss and five passes defended since Courtney Watson in 2003. He is one of just three players at a contract bowl eligible school this fall with at least 113 tackles, nine TFLs and five passed defended. Smith is the first Irish player with consecutive 100-tackle seasons since Te'o hit that milestone for three straight years from 2010-12. - Notre Dame Football

12/10/15 - Jordan Simone, rSr, Arizona State, 5-11, 195 (DS#14 SS) [Newsfeed]
2015 ALL-PAC-12 CONFERENCE HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES): DB Jordan Simone, Sr.,...Seven Sun Devil Football student-athletes have been named to All-Pac-12 Conference teams, the conference announced. Redshirt senior offensive lineman Christian Westerman earned second-team honors and six Devils picked up honorable mention recognition. - Arizona State Football

12/09/15 - Josh Doctson, rSr, TCU, 6-2, 195 (DS#4 WR) [Newsfeed]
Big-play receiver Josh Doctson is hoping to play for No. 11 TCU in the Alamo Bowl, even though his broken left wrist is still in a cast and his arm in a sling. "Just listening to my doctor and trying to get as healthy as possible in time for Oregon," Doctson said Tuesday, about 3 1-2 weeks before the Jan. 2 game in San Antonio. "I want to be back more than anything, but I've just got to let time heal." Despite missing two full games, and parts of two others, Doctson set TCU records this season with 79 catches for 1,387 yards and 14 touchdowns. His 132.7 yards receiving per game are still the most among FBS receivers, and he is one of three finalists for the Biletnikoff Award that goes to the nation's top receiver.

The senior NFL prospect, who will get his degree from TCU later this month, has 180 career catches. That is one shy of the school record for Doctson, who played as a freshman at Wyoming before transferring home and initially walking on at the school where his mother works. Doctson was hurt Nov. 7 at Oklahoma State, when he planted his hand on the turf after a catch, and a defender fell on his left arm. Doctson tried to play the following week against Kansas, but had only one catch for 12 yards. He missed the last two regular season games for the Horned Frogs (10-2) after having surgery. Doctson is scheduled to have a follow-up exam next week, when he expects "to have a better idea when I can get started with rehab." That is the soonest he might get his cast off. - AP Sports

12/08/15 - Cameron Smith, Fr, Southern California, 6-1, 245 (DS#1 ILB) [Newsfeed]
2015 PAC-12 DEFENSIVE FRESHMAN OF THE YEAR (COACHES): First-year freshman inside linebacker Cameron Smith was named the 2015 Pac-12 Defensive Freshman of the Year in a vote by the league’s coaches. He is the fourth Trojan in the past five years so honored, joining cornerback-wide receiver-returner Adoree’ Jackson (2014), defensive tackle Leonard Williams (2012) and linebacker Dion Bailey (2011). One other USC defensive freshman, safety Taylor Mays in 2006, was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year.

Smith, who graduated a semester early from high school and enrolled at USC this past spring, tore knee ligaments at Colorado (the 10th game of 2015) and had surgery. He ended up with 78 tackles (still leading the Trojans), including a sack, plus he had 3 interceptions (currently tied for the USC lead), 3 deflections and 1 fumble recovery while starting 9 times. Before getting hurt, he was on pace to be the first true freshman to top the Trojans in tackles in a season since records were first kept in 1954. His 3 interceptions against Utah were the most in a game by a Trojan since 1991. - USC Football
