  Eli Drinkwitz's great quarterback chase of 2022 continues with a new target. Former Louisiana Tech, Southern Miss and Mississippi State QB Jack Abraham is traveling to Columbia on Friday for a weekend visit, his father, Michael Abraham, told the Post-Dispatch. Abraham, who turns 25 in October, has embarked on a long college journey. The Oxford, Mississippi native committed to Tulane in high school but signed with Louisiana Tech in 2016 after the Tulane staff was fired. He redshirted at Louisiana Tech, then left for Northwest Mississippi Community College for the 2017 season, where he threw for more than 3,000 yards and 23 touchdowns. From there he became a three-year starter at Southern Miss from 2018-20, throwing for more than 7,000 yards, 41 touchdowns and 29 interceptions. He led the nation in completion percentage in 2018 at 73.1% and for his three-year run completed 69.3% with a passer rating of 147.4. - Post-Dispatch

  05/15/22 - CB Cam SmithrJr/2024, South Carolina, 6-1, 187 (DS#4 CB) + More +

  South Carolina's NFL Draft history is semi-limited compared with some of its Southeastern Conference counterparts, but the 2022 season may be a major step toward changing that. Quarterback Spencer Rattler, cornerback Cam Smith and wide back Jaheim Bell could all conceivably be in play as first-round selections should they live up to their respective preseason hype. And while there's still a season to be played, the added attention on those in Columbia isn't something the Gamecocks are shying away from. "There's no doubt when high school recruits are watching the NFL Draft and they see players from your school getting drafted, that's a great thing," head coach Shane Beamer said ahead of a Gamecock Club event in Anderson on Tuesday.

South Carolina hasn't ever been an NFL factory in the way programs like Alabama, Georgia and Florida have been over the past 20 years, but USC isn't devoid of recent draft history by any stretch. The Gamecocks have had at least one player selected in the first round in three of the past five drafts. South Carolina has also had at least one prospect taken in 19 of the past 20 NFL Drafts - including one or more every year between 2002 and 2017. - Rock Hill Herald

  When Florida State coach Mike Norvell began retooling the Seminoles' roster over the past few seasons, he was looking to add necessary experience and leadership to an otherwise young and raw group of players. Norvell achieved that by adding more than two dozen players through the transfer market. Their presence gave the team a lift, specifically through the performances of players such as Jermaine Johnson II, Keir Thomas, Jashaun Corbin and Devontay Love-Taylor. As the play improved, so did the team's confidence - a noticeable improvement coming out of FSU's spring camp last month.

"You saw confidence because guys understood the expectation," said Norvell. "We were able to push harder, and it wasn't all new for them." The quarterback group showed the most significant growth, with redshirt junior Jordan Travis returning as FSU's starter. After on-again, off-again seasons, Travis also assumes a more prominent leadership role for the Seminoles. "It's probably one of the biggest differences within our program," said Norvell. "Jordan is an incredible young man, but we had yet to see that confidence because there had not been that consistency of him being the guy, being able to go out there and consistently showcase what he could do. We got a glimpse of that last year and you watch how he responded in challenging situations." - Orlando Sentinel

  Poised for a 2022 standout season: Oklahoma transfer wide receiver Jadon Haselwood could be the heir apparent to NFL-bound Treylon Burks. The former five-star prospect caught 39 passes for 399 yards and a team-leading six touchdowns last season. He's the program's highest rated recruit in the modern era. - AP College Football

  05/15/22 - OG Casey RoddickrJr/2024, Colorado, 6-3, 325 (DS#48 OG) + More +

  In recalling the memory of returning to the football field last summer, Casey Roddick can't help but laugh. "It was like a baby deer just trying to get out there and figure out how to run first," he said. Now a fifth-year junior offensive lineman for the Colorado Buffaloes, Roddick is enjoying a new level of confidence after going through a full winter and spring of workouts. He didn't get those workouts last year. In late January of 2021, about a month after he and the Buffs played in the Valero Alamo Bowl, Roddick contracted COVID-19 and then was diagnosed with myocarditis, which is inflammation of the heart muscle sometimes caused by a virus.

"Personally, I thought I was done playing forever," he said. "That was the consensus between myself and also some of the coaches that were previously here. They thought I was done with it. It was definitely scary to figure out, like, it could be over just like that." Studies have shown that young males are more likely to develop myocarditis than others and that African Americans have had a higher rate of hospitalization from COVID-19 compared to Caucasians. "I just had to do whatever the doctor was telling me, but the statistics don't lie at the end of the day," Roddick said. "Definitely when I heard those statistics it was alarming to be like, 'Okay, what do I need to do to get over this, most importantly, but how can I get over it the fastest?" - Daily Camera

  05/15/22 - QB C.J. StroudrSo/2025, Ohio State, 6-2, 218 (DS#2 QB) + More +

  Stroud might be Ryan Day's perfect quarterback, in turn making him Ohio State football's best NFL prospect. His 6-foot-3, 218-pound frame makes him the prototypical size teams dream of having. He can make all of the throws, has poise in the pocket and can buy time with his feet when he needs to. That was all on display during his first season as the starter when he threw for 4,435 yards and 44 touchdowns while completing 71.9% of his passes. If there's one knock against Stroud's game, it's that his ability - and sometimes desire - to make plays with his legs is often non-existent. But that's a description that comes with the territory of practically every quarterback who's won the sport's most important trophy: None of them are the supreme athletes whose highlights will dominate social media.

That's because they've got a trait that's even more valuable: supreme football IQ. "That's the thing I love about football is that you can actually put in the work and go see it and put it on the field," Stroud said. "I love meeting. I love talking about this stuff. I love the verbiage. I love challenging myself." Stroud is a football mind. One conversation with him is enough to see how he views the game, and why he's able to anticipate and complete throws in places some pros wouldn't try. Just like supreme athleticism can't be taught, neither can that level of understanding. That trait is why at the peak of Peyton Manning's career, he was often given multiple plays at the line of scrimmage and picked which one he wanted to run based on what he saw. That trait is why Tom Brady is a seven-time Super Bowl champion. - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  A warrant was issued for University of Kentucky football player Chris Rodriguez after he failed to appear in court Friday afternoon. Judge Denotra Gunter issued a warrant for Rodriguez's arrest and imposed a $200 fine, according to a report by LEX-18, the official television partner of UK. Rodriguez, the team's returning starter at running back, faces three charges - operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol, careless driving and no tail lamps - stemming from an arrest early Sunday morning. His arraignment was scheduled for 1 p.m. Friday.

According to a citation, Rodriguez's speech was slurred and there was "an odor of alcoholic beverages coming from within the vehicle" after he was pulled over at a gas station off Nicholasville Road. Rodriguez agreed to a horizontal gaze test but refused to perform other field tests while outside of the vehicle, according to the citation. He displayed "the involuntary jerking of the eyes indicating alcohol consumption" during the gaze test, according to the citation. The officer wrote that Rodriguez, 21, admitted to having consumed "one or two shots of alcohol" at Belle's Cocktail House, a bar located downtown near the intersection of Church and Market streets. He was transported to the Fayette County Detention Center, where he refused an evidential breath test. - Herald Leader

  First year Eastern Michigan University football player Taylor Powell (Fayetteville, Ark.-Fayetteville (Troy)) has earned one of the most coveted offseason invitations that a quarterback can hope for. The Fayetteville, Ark. native has accepted an invitation to the prestigious Manning Passing Academy, set to take place June 23-26, where he will serve as a camp counselor alongside some of the top collegiate signal callers in the nation.

Powell, in his first season with EMU, came to Ypsilanti after stints at Troy University and the University of Missouri. Last season at Troy, Powell played in six games, starting five, before suffering an injury. He completed 125-of-189 passes for 1,251 yards and seven touchdowns, and averaged 178.7 yards per game via the air. The veteran tossed for a season-high 311 yards and two touchdowns at ULM, Sept. 25, and was 35-for-49 against in that game. - Ann Arbor News

  05/14/22 - SS Marquel BroughtonrJr/2024, Army, 5-10, 205 (DS#40 SS) + More +

  Connor Bishop and Marquel Broughton play on different sides of the football, one getting dirty on the line and the other patrolling the outfield, if you will. They have differing styles of leading but with the shared sentiment of helping their fellow cadets and friends. Broughton and Bishop share a business management major and now they share duties as Army's co-captains for the 2022 season. "It's an incredible honor," Bishop said. "I think it's one of the best honors that you can have is to be named captain by your team. I'm just incredibly grateful and excited for the opportunity."

As a junior, Broughton was one of four co-captains on the 2021 team that went 9-4 and beat Missouri in the Armed Forces Bowl. Broughton brought much energy and vocal leadership to the job. He was not assured of serving as captain again but his popularity among his teammates made him a shoe-in. "It's a blessing, just like last year," Broughton said. "It's nice to be voted as a leader here at West Point due to the circumstances of all the leaders here. This is the premier leadership school. Just knowing that I can do it two times, it's big, and I'm definitely happy about it." - Times Herald-Record
