02/08/16 - Thomas TynerrJr/2018, Oregon, 5-11, 215 (DS#999 RB) [Newsfeed]
Oregon running back Thomas Tyner has decided to take a medical retirement after sitting out all of last season because of a shoulder injury. Tyner was the Ducks' third-leading rusher as a true freshman in 2013 and then again as a sophomore in 2014. He finishes his Oregon career with 1,284 yards rushing and 14 touchdowns. "Thank you for all the support over the years," Tyner wrote in a Twitter post. "Couldn't have been more blessed to have been part of such a great community, I have the utmost respect for the staff and my teammates. Now it's time to get in the books and finish up in school. Much love to you all and Go Ducks!"

After missing five games his sophomore season, he played in the first College Football Playoffs, rushing for 124 yards and two touchdowns in the Rose Bowl victory over Florida State, and 62 yards in the national championship game loss to Ohio State. He missed all of last season following shoulder surgery. Nicknamed "Dash," Tyner was a homegrown recruit from Aloha High School, west of Portland. He rushed for 3,415 yards as a senior, setting a single-season rushing record for the state. He scored 47 touchdowns, 43 on the ground. On his 18th birthday his senior year, Tyner smashed state records with 643 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns in an 84-63 victory over Lakeridge High School. - AP Sports

02/08/16 - Blake BogenschutzrFr/2019, Texas-San Antonio, 6-1, 180 (DS#999 QB) [Newsfeed]
Calling it "one of the toughest situations" in his life, UTSA sophomore quarterback Blake Bogenschutz said Tuesday he is giving up football because of lingering concussion-like symptoms. Bogenschutz missed the final seven games of 2015 after sustaining a concussion against UTEP. UTSA officials said that team doctors advised him to quit playing. "As much as I love football, I respect the doctors' decision to end my career," Bogenschutz said. "Despite my strong love and passion for the game, I have come to peace and realization that my health is more important than a game. I find peace in that I played every down with all of my heart and always left everything I had out on the field. Bogenschutz had six career starts and finished with 1,179 passing yards and four touchdowns. He will remain on scholarship and be a student assistant coach until he graduates. "Concussions are a serious deal in this day and age and I have learned that first-hand," Bogenschutz said. "My mind and heart are on good terms with walking away from it all knowing that it could've easily gotten worse." - AP Sports

02/08/16 - Hunter RenfrowrFr/2019, Clemson, 5-10, 175 (DS#25 WR) [Newsfeed]
Clemson receiver Hunter Refrow, a star of the national championship game, broke the pinkie finger on his right hand playing basketball with coach Dabo Swinney's sons. Renfrow said through athletic spokesman Tim Bourret that the injury will not keep him from the start of spring practice on Feb. 29. Renfrow is a redshirt freshman who caught two touchdown passes from quarterback Deshaun Watson in Clemson's 45-40 loss to Alabama in the national title game last month. Renfrow also had a touchdown in Clemson's 37-17 victory over Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl on New Year's Eve. Renfrow jammed his hand while playing basketball recently at Swinney's house and is wearing a cast. Renfrow finished the season with 33 catches for 492 yards and five touchdowns. - AP Sports

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly says tight end Tyler Luatua will transfer at the end of the spring semester. The 6-foot-3, 255-pound sophomore from Paramount, California, started three games for the Irish and played in 20 games overall, but had no catches. He was used primarily as a blocker in multiple tight end sets. He also played on special teams. The Irish have three other returning tight ends who also have started: Durham Smythe, Nic Weishar and Alize Jones. With Smythe missing most of the season with knee and shoulder injuries, the Irish tight ends had just 20 catches. That's the fewest in a season by Notre Dame since 2001. - AP Sports

02/08/16 - Joshua DobbsJr/2017, Tennessee, 6-3, 212 (DS#3 QB) [Newsfeed]
Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs is spending part of his offseason working out with the Volunteers' baseball team. Vols baseball coach Dave Serrano says Friday that Tennessee's starting quarterback has participated in two baseball workouts with football coach Butch Jones' blessing. Serrano declined comment on whether Dobbs might play for the baseball team. Dobbs, who played baseball in high school, wasn't included in the Tennessee baseball roster that was distributed Friday. Serrano says he's been in "constant communication" with Dobbs and Jones "about any affiliation that (Dobbs) may or may not have with this program." Tennessee opens its baseball season Feb. 19. The football team begins spring practice March 7 and holds its spring game April 16. - AP Sports

02/08/16 - Christian McCaffreySo/2018, Stanford, 6-0, 205 (DS#2 RB) [Newsfeed]
Stanford's Christian McCaffrey has been named winner of the Jet Award as the nation's top return specialist. The Jet Award was established in 2011 and named for Nebraska 1972 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny "The Jet" Rodgers. McCaffrey is the second Stanford player to win the award. Ty Montgomery won in 2013. McCaffrey broke Barry Sanders' NCAA all-purpose yards record with 3,864 last season. He averaged 29 yards on kickoff returns and almost 9 on punt returns. He returned one kick and one punt for touchdowns. A selection committee made up of Rodgers and football writers and broadcasters from around the country select the Jet Award winner. McCaffrey was named the winner Thursday and will be honored at a banquet in Omaha in April. - AP Sports

02/08/16 - Maty MaukrJr/2017, Missouri, 6-0, 200 (DS#999 QB) [Newsfeed]
Missouri has dismissed quarterback Maty Mauk from the program after a series of missteps. New coach Barry Odom said Thursday he met with Mauk in December and gave him a fresh start. But Missouri suspended Mauk again this week after a brief video was posted to Twitter. It shows a person appearing to snort a white, powder-like substance and the tweet mentions Mauk by name. Odom says he believes the video is from "a long time ago," but it was clear Mauk had violated team rules in recent weeks and that was the reason for the dismissal. Mauk, a junior, was suspended on Nov. 1 following an incident at a downtown bar not long after returning from a suspension on Sept. 29 for an undisclosed violation of team policy. - AP Sports

02/08/16 - Deshaun WatsonSo/2018, Clemson, 6-2, 210 (DS#1 QB) [Newsfeed]
Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson has his eye on the NFL and says he could leave a season early next year if circumstances are right. Watson spoke Wednesday before the Tigers' basketball game with Pittsburgh. He was honored as the South Carolina Hall of Fame's Collegiate Player of the Year. The 6-foot-2 sophomore All-American said the NFL has always been a dream and is part of the reason he came to Clemson. Watson said one of his goals is to have his college degree before he leaves. He is on track to graduate in December. He said that if things go as planned, he'd give up his senior season to turn pro. Clemson had five underclassmen declare this year, including All-American defensive end Shaq Lawson and standout cornerback Mackensie Alexander. - AP Sports

02/08/16 - T.J. NealrJr/2017, Illinois, 6-0, 235 (DS#25 ILB) [Newsfeed]
Illinois starting linebacker T.J. Neal plans to transfer before his senior season. Sports information director Kent Brown said Tuesday that Neal plans to leave the team after three seasons. Brown said Neal plans to transfer closer to home but there was no immediate word on his destination. The junior is from McKeeseport, Pennsylvania. Neal was the team's second-leading tackler last season with 109 tackles. The 6-1, 235-pound Neal was a starter for two seasons. His exit means Illinois will be without six of its top seven leading tacklers from the 2015 season and all of its starting linebackers. The team also recently lost a pair of backup linebackers when LaKeith Walls and B.J. Bellow announced plans to transfer. - AP Sports

02/08/16 - Andrew BaggettrSr/2016, Missouri, 6-1, 210 (DS#13 K) [Newsfeed]
Andrew Baggett of Missouri kicked six field goals, including a 22-yarder early in the fourth quarter to lift the National team to an 18-17 victory over the American in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on Saturday. Baggett's game-winner with 13:48 remaining came three players after Kyle Kragen of California recovered Travis Wilson's fumble on the American 10-yard line. For Kragen, it was his third sack of the game. Baggett, who kicked four years at Missouri, also connected from 36, 50, 42, 39 and 24 yards. He missed a 54-yard attempt. Stephen Rivers, the younger brother of San Diego Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers, threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Jayden Mickens of Washington with 2:31 left in the first half, giving the American team a 17-6 lead. Rivers, who threw for 1,394 yards and nine touchdowns at Northwestern State in 2015, completed 11 of 14 passes for 97 yards and the TD. - AP Sports

02/08/16 - Geronimo AllisonSr/2016, Illinois, 6-3, 197 (DS#27 WR) [Newsfeed]
Oregon's Vernon Adams Jr. threw for 191 yards and three touchdowns in less than a half, leading the West to a 29-9 victory in the 91st East-West Shrine game on Saturday. The former Eastern Washington star who transferred to Oregon to finish his college career tossed scoring passes of 93 yards to Purdue's Danny Anthrop, 11 yards to Colorado State's Kivon Cartwright's and 10 yards to Illinois' Geronimo Allison as the West built a 23-9 halftime lead. Allison also caught a 6-yard scoring pass from Indiana's Nate Sudfeld. Florida cornerback Brian Poole returned an interception 98 yards for the East's only touchdown. Navy's Keenan Reynolds, who's trying to make the transition from quarterback to running back after setting the NCAA record for career rushing touchdowns with 88, did not play for the East because of back spasms. - AP Sports

02/08/16 - Seth CollinsFr/2019, Oregon State, 6-3, 190 (DS#999 QB) [Newsfeed]
Dual-threat quarterback Seth Collins, who was electrifying but inconsistent in a freshman year marred by injury, is transferring from Oregon State. The school announced Friday night he was leaving. The Beavers finished 2-10 in Gary Andersen's first year as coach, going without a conference win for the first time since 1997. Collins passed for 936 yards and six touchdowns with four interceptions. He led the Beavers in rushing with 380 yards and eight touchdowns. After winning a three-way battle in fall camp, Collins was also the first true freshman to start at quarterback for the Beavers since David Moran against Washington State in 1996. He shared duties as the start of the season with redshirt freshman Marcus McMaryion as the Beavers sought to give three inexperienced quarterbacks game experience in Andersen's new system. - AP Sports

02/08/16 - Terry Beckner JrFr/2019, Missouri, 6-4, 298 (DS#18 DT) [Newsfeed]
Missouri defensive tackle Terry Beckner Jr. has been indefinitely suspended after a marijuana possession arrest. Coach Barry Odom said Thursday that he was "disappointed." He said Beckner also would face disciplinary measures from the team. The announcement came one day after University of Missouri police officers stopped the car Beckner was driving. Maj. Brian Weimer said officers smelled marijuana and found a plastic bag inside the car containing the drug. Becker was booked, processed and released on a summons accusing him of possessing less than 35 grams of marijuana. Beckner, from East St. Louis, Illinois, was one of the top recruits in the nation. His freshman season ended Nov. 14 when he suffered a torn ACL and MCL ligaments to his right knee. - AP Sports
