12/30/17- *Mark Andrews, rJr, Oklahoma, 6-4, 254
New England Patriots star Rob Gronknowski is the new measuring stick for tight ends, and Oklahoma's Mark Andrews gets the comparison from someone qualified to offer it. Sooners defensive coordinator Mike Stoops recruited and coached Gronkowski when he was the head coach at Arizona. In the 6-foot-5 and 254-pound junior Andrews, Stoops sees plenty of similarities to Gronkowski in practice everyday. "Gronk is probably an inch taller. Maybe a little more length," Stoops said at Rose Bowl media day on Saturday. "But their ability to run routes and get open are what's unique about those guys."

Andrews has 58 receptions for 906 yards and eight touchdowns this season, leading Oklahoma in catches and touchdown catches. He leads all FBS tight ends in yards receiving, ranks second in receptions and is tied for third in touchdown receptions. Andrews has to improve as an in-line blocker to match Gronkowski, Stoops said. That isn't as big of a problem in college, as Andrews frequently lines up in the slot. But it is Andrews' receiving skills that will be enticing to an NFL team looking for the next Gronk. "Mark can do whatever he wants on the football field," Stoops said. "Create matchups, that's what Mark is going to be able to do at the next level." - AP College Football

12/21/17- Alize Mack, rSo, Notre Dame, 6-4, 251
No. 14 Notre Dame has suspended a third player for the Citrus Bowl against No. 16 LSU. Junior tight end Alize Mack, who saw considerable playing time this year after missing the 2016 season because of academic issues, will miss the Jan. 1 game against the Tigers (9-3) because of "an internal team matter," coach Brian Kelly said Thursday. He did not disclose details but said the punishment is limited to the game in Orlando, Florida. Already indefinitely suspended for the Fighting Irish (9-3) are sophomore wide receiver Kevin Stepherson and freshman running back C.J. Holmes, who were arrested on shoplifting charges last week at a mall in nearby Mishawaka.

"If I could explain 18 to 20 year olds and their thought process after being in (this career) for 27 years, I'd have written that book already," Kelly said of Stephenseon and Holmes. "We try to expose our kids to the foundational principals of making good decisions. They broke one of our commandments you can't steal and they did. I can tolerate a lot of things but I can't tolerate stealing. That's why they are suspended indefinitely and they've put themselves into jeopardy." Kelly said he was still considering the length of the suspensions for Holmes, who saw limited action in eight games, and Stepherson, who caught 19 passes for 359 yards and five touchdowns after missing the first four games as punishment for off-field issues. - AP College Football

12/20/17- Dallas Goedert, Sr, South Dakota State, 6-3, 255

Goedert has been a unanimous All-America selection each of the past two seasons and has been honored as a first-team selection in 2017 by The Associated Press, Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association, Phil Steele Publications and STATS. - South Dakota State Football
