  01/15/21 - ILB Will HonasrSr/2022, Nebraska, 6-0, 230 (DS#36 ILB) + More +

  Will Honas emerged as a staple of Nebraska's defense in 2020. Now he's poised to be just the same in 2021. The senior inside linebacker announced Thursday morning he's returning to school for an extra season and will be back with the Huskers for 2021. Honas is coming off his best collegiate season and will look to build on it thanks to the extra season of eligibility granted by the NCAA due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Wichita, Kansas, native played in seven of NU's eight games in 2020 and finished second on the team in tackles with 57. He tied senior outside linebacker JoJo Domann with a team-best 6 1/2 tackles for loss, adding a team-leading three sacks. He projects as a defensive leader next season. - Lincoln Journal Star

  Five North Texas players entered the NCAA transfer portal late this week, including a pair of seniors who were eligible to return for another season with the Mean Green. Cornerback Cam Johnson and safety Makyle Sanders started throughout their senior campaigns. Wide receiver Greg White and linebacker Chris Thornton were backups in 2020, while offensive lineman Brian Parish opted out of the season. The NCAA froze eligibility clocks for fall sports athletes this season due to the coronavirus pandemic. Johnson and Sanders could have returned for another season, despite playing key roles as seniors last season for the Mean Green. - Denton Record

  01/15/21 - WR Josh PalmerSr/2021, Tennessee, 6-1, 210 (DS#53 WR) + More +

  Josh Palmer has his sights set on the next chapter of his football career. The senior wide receiver said farewell to Tennessee in an Instagram post Thursday, confirming what has been expected for months - that Palmer would depart for the NFL rather than exercise the option to play an additional senior season in 2021. Palmer is set to play in the Senior Bowl on Jan. 30 in Mobile, Alabama, in an opportunity to showcase his skills for NFL scouts. Teammate Trey Smith, who also is headed for the NFL draft, is also on the Senior Bowl roster. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Palmer was one of Tennessee's top players in 2020, when he caught 33 passes for 475 yards and four touchdowns. He came within one reception of matching his single-season career high for receptions despite this season only featuring 10 games. - Knoxville News Sentinel

  Chris Jackson, a former Michigan State cornerback who just finished his redshirt sophomore season with the Spartans, announced his commitment to WSU on Thursday afternoon. With the NCAA's extra year of eligibility, Jackson will still be a redshirt sophomore this fall, and should have two more years to play after sitting out due to transfer rules. The Cougars have added four transfers this offseason, including Jackson. Tennessee quarterback Jarrett Guarantano and TCU linebacker Ben Wilson, a Sumner, Washington, native, have both enrolled at WSU and will participate in spring practice. Hawaii wide receiver Lincoln Victor, another transfer who played high school football in the Evergreen State, announced his commitment to the Cougars but hasn't signed a letter of intent. - Spokesman-Review

  01/15/21 - ILB Devin LloydrJr/2022, Utah, 6-2, 232 (DS#2 ILB) + More +

  On Saturday at 5:20 p.m., Devin Lloyd tweeted out a 21-second highlight video from the shortened 2020 football season, and slapped a caption on it that read, "One Last Ride." Lloyd, a University of Utah redshirt junior linebacker and a finalist for last season's Butkus Award, will return to Salt Lake City in 2021 as a redshirt junior. With that, all of the Utes' major offseason business should now be complete.

Lloyd is returning, an announcement that came days after redshirt junior offensive lineman Nick Ford and junior tight end Brant Kuithe both announced they would return. The coaching staff restocked the quarterback room, hitting the NCAA Transfer Portal for Baylor's Charlie Brewer and Ja'Quinden Jackson of Texas. Same with the running back room, which now includes Oklahoma transfer T.J. Pledger and LSU's Chris Curry. The question now begs, will Utah contend for the Pac-12 South title? - Salt Lake Tribune
