 College Football Player News & Notes


  Clemson Football   Notes from NFLPA practice in Pasadena are split on wide receiver Joseph Ngata (Clemson). He is currently rated No. 261 overall, a seventh round/priority free agent, by NFL Draft Scout. He was previously rated as high as the third round but fell when injuries prevented him from living up to expectations. NFL.com highlighted Ngata among six of the most intriguing prospects from NFLPA Collegiate Bowl practices, reporting "Ngata was a five-star recruit out of high school. There were high expectations for him at Clemson, but he struggled to reach them during an injury-plagued career."

That's partially true. Ngata, who was measured at 6-3 1/4, 220 pounds last week, was a four-star recruit we saw at Folsom High (California) who was beset by injuries at Clemson. His best season was 2022 with 526 yards in 14 starts, including a career-best eight catches in his final game. In Tuesday's practice, Ngata wowed scouts with a diving catch over the middle and on Wednesday showed off his athleticism on some downfield passes. However, although we estimate he can run 40 yards in the mid 4.4 second area, scouts at the workouts told us that he struggled to get separation and was battling for the ball against smaller defensive backs. It will be interesting to see the results of his vertical jump, agility drills and quickness at the combine. - Frank Cooney, NFL Draft Scout

  South Carolina Football   At the end of the college season NFL teams were saying good things about South Carolina guard Jovaughn Gwyn. When he was weighed and measured at the NFPA workouts, his height (6-1 7/8) and wingspan (76 5/8) were disappointing. But on the field he was impressive in practice using strong hands and great technique to be consistent as a pass protector. NFL Draft Scout has him rated No. 206 overall (sixth round area), but Gwyn may have improved his stock last week. - Frank Cooney, NFL Draft Scout

  Troy Football   Heading into spring practices in a couple of months – Troy has officially added three early enrollee freshmen and 21 transfers. Those transfers include scholarship and walk-on additions from FBS, FCS, Division II and junior college (JUCO) schools. The three freshmen are defensive lineman Ty'Quarius Perry, linebacker Keyshawn Campbell and quarterback JD Sherrod. With all of the fresh faces out of the transfer portal, Sumrall was quick to emphasize that recruiting high school and JUCO is where everything begins with the Troy program.

The new transfers include running back Asa Martin (Memphis), quarterback Will "Goose” Crowder (West Virginia), cornerback Damaje Yancey (So. Utah), receiver Chris Lewis (Kentucky), safety Reggie Bracy (Iowa), safety Dasheen Jackson (Hutchison CC), linebacker TJ Thompson (East Central CC), tight end Ethan Conner (East Mississippi CC), defensive end Zach Edwards (Louisville), running back Jordon Ingram (Auburn), linebacker Steven Cattledge (EMCC), receiver/punter Landon Parker (Wofford), bandit Raymond Cutts (Garden City CC), offensive lineman Boaz Stanley (Georgia Military), offensive lineman Tavon Matthews (East Tennessee St.), offensive lineman Blake Austin (East Tennessee St.), offensive lineman Braylun Smith (Birmingham Southern), offensive lineman Eli Russ (Oklahoma State), offensive lineman Markendrick Beall (Tyler JC) and tight end Brody Dalton (UAB). - Troy Messenger

  Connecticut Football   The UConn football team added to its list of new players via the transfer portal, getting running back Jalen Mitchell from Louisville. It's an important get for the Huskies, who lost their No. 1 back of a year ago, Nathan Carter, to Michigan State through the portal. Carter, and several other running backs were lost to injuries last season, underscoring the need for depth at the position. Mitchell was Louisville's top running back in 2021, gaining 722 yards for five touchdowns, catching 12 passes for another 121 yards. But he sustained a leg injury early in 2022 and never got back in the mix, carrying only 10 times for 48 yards. During three years as a Cardinal, Mitchell, 5 feet 10 and 214 pounds, had a knack for gaining yardage after contact, and averaged 5.14 yards over 217 carries From Rockledge, Fla., Mitchell was rated a three-star running back out of high school. At UConn, he will have two years eligibility and join Victor Rosa, from Bristol Central, who will be a sophomore, Devontae Houston and Brian Brewton, among others, in competition for carries. - Hartford Courant

  Buffalo Football   Jake Orlando tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the spring of 2018, wiping out his final season of playing football at Williamsville North. The 6-6, 245-pound tight end didn't think he'd have another opportunity to play football. However, the University of Massachusetts reached out to Orlando in the spring of his senior year as he prepared play a post-graduate season of football at a prep school. Instead, he accepted a scholarship to UMass. Orlando plans to return to Western New York and join the University at Buffalo football program as a graduate transfer in June after he graduates from UMass. Orlando announced his commitment to the Buffalo Bulls earlier this week on social media. - Buffalo News

  South Alabama Football   Loading up: South Alabama has welcomed four Division I transfers into the program: offensive linemen Jordan Davis (South Carolina) and Reed Buys (Mississippi State), wide receiver Javon Ivory (Memphis) and running back Kentrel Bullock (Ole Miss). Also new to the team this semester are a pair of December signees: quarterback Gio Lopez of James Clemens High School in Madison and cornerback Reggie Neely, a transfer from East Mississippi Community College.

In addition to the four Division I transfers, South Alabama signed a total of 12 high school and junior college players in December. Running back PJ Martin, an all-state selection in Louisiana, committed to the Jaguars earlier this month and will sign when the late period begins on Wednesday (Feb. 4). - Dallas Morning News

  01/28/23 - QB Joey LabasrSo/2026, Iowa + More +

  Iowa Football   When it comes to quarterbacks, the transfer portal giveth and the transfer portal taketh away. The Iowa football team gained two quarterbacks from the portal and lost two quarterbacks to the portal. The turnover, along with Spencer Petras' shoulder injury, means Iowa's quarterback room will look significantly different in 2023. Gone: Alex Padilla and Carson May were Iowa's two departures via the transfer portal at quarterback. Padilla appeared in 13 games in an Iowa uniform since 2020 and completed 49 percent of his passes while throwing three touchdowns and four interceptions. May, a true freshman, did not see any game action in his lone season in Iowa City.

Who is back: Joe Labas is expected to return for his sophomore year after making his collegiate debut in the 2022 Music City Bowl. Labas went 14-for-24 with one touchdown and no interceptions despite practicing almost exclusively on the scout team until bowl prep began. Spencer Petras is staying with the Hawkeyes at least through the spring as he rehabs his shoulder. He tore his rotator cuff and labrum in his throwing shoulder in Iowa's Nov. 25 loss to Nebraska. - The Gazette

  01/28/23 - RB Asa MartinrSr/2024, Troy + More +

  Troy Football   Former Auburn running backs Asa Martin and Jordon Ingram have joined the football program at Troy, a school spokesman confirmed to AL.com. Both Martin and Ingram are enrolled in spring semester classes and will participate in spring practice for the Trojans, the 2022 Sun Belt Conference champions. Martin has one year of eligibility remaining, while Ingram has three. Martin - who spent the last four seasons at Memphis - signed with Auburn in the 2018 class after being name Mr. Football by the Alabama Sports Writers Association at Decatur's Austin High School the previous fall. A four-star prospect coming out of high school, he played in five games mostly on special teams as a true freshman. Then-Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn later admitted the Tigers planned to play Martin in only four games that season to preserve his redshirt year, but staffers apparently miscounted and played him in five. Martin transferred to Miami, but never played for the Hurricanes before transferring a second time to Memphis. After sitting out the 2019 season under NCAA transfer rules, Martin played three seasons as part of Memphis' running back rotation. He rushed for a career-best 435 yards and seven touchdowns and also caught 36 passes this past season for the Tigers, and entered the portal as a graduate transfer two weeks ago. - Birmingham News

  Arizona State Football   Mmm, what might this mean for Arizona quarterback Drew Pyne, a redshirt sophomore who recently transferred from Notre Dame? ASU is favored to land former Florida quarterback signee Jaden Rashada, according to recent odds. Bookies.com has the Sun Devils at +140 to land Rashada, a 5-star QB whose father, Harlen, played at Arizona State. It gives the team a 41.67% implied probability to be the Pittsburg (Calif.) High standout's next school. TCU is second in the odds at +180 (35.71%), followed by Washington at +400 (20%) and California at +1000 (9.09%). The site lists "Other" at +2000 (4.76%) in its odds. Rashada reportedly visited Arizona State last weekend after being officially released form his letter of intent at Florida. He is scheduled to also visit TCU.

Rashada is the No. 6 QB prospect in the class of 2023, according to 247Sports. His father played at ASU between 1992 and 1994. New ASU coach Kenny Dillingham recruited Rashada when Dillingham was Oregon's offensive coordinator. The 6-foot-4, 185-pound Jaden Rashada threw for 5,275 yards at Pittsburg High last season, with 59 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. He had a falling out with Florida after the Gator Collective - an independent fundraising group that is loosely tied to the university and pays student-athletes for use of their name, image and likeness - failed to honor a four-year deal worth more than $13 million. Pyne threw for 2,021 yads with 22 touchdowns for Notre Dame while compiled an 8-2 record as a starter, including a 4-1 record against top 25 teams. - CalBears.com

  Penn State Football   Dante Cephas announced Sunday that he's transferring from Kent State to Penn State. Cephas, one of the best players available in the transfer portal, could become the Nittany Lions' No. 1 wide receiver in 2023 after racking up 130 catches for 1,984 yards and 12 touchdowns the past seasons with the Golden Flashes. The former Penn Hills star is slated to finish classes at Kent State before enrolling at Penn State in the summer. Cephas will have two years of eligibility remaining. Cephas was near the top of James Franklin's portal wish list and with reason.

The Pittsburgh native has the ability to change Penn State's offensive trajectory in 2023, just as he did with Penn Hills four years ago. "They're getting the complete package in Dante," former Penn Hills coach Jon LeDonne said. "He's a big, long, athletic receiver. Very, very explosive. He's not afraid to go across the middle. He's a strong individual as well." LeDonne called Cephas "a happy guy who's always in a good mood." The coach never had any issues with him in their two seasons together, only fond memories. LeDonne, now the coach at Pine-Richland, remembers arriving at Penn Hills in June 2017. One of the first things he did was watch tape from the 2016 junior varsity team to see if he had any up-and-comers. Cephas jumped out right away. "Some of these one-handed catches he was making and going up for everything and running after the catch," LeDonne said, "we knew we had a special player." - Tribune Review

  Texas AM Football   Former UTEP wide receiver Tyrin Smith is transferring to Texas A&M, making the announcement Sunday via twitter. Smith, who will have two years of eligibility remaining, had 71 receptions for 1,039 yards and seven touchdowns this past season for the 5-7 Miners. The 5-foot-7, 170-pounder in 2021 had 33 receptions for 570 yards with four TDs. Smith, who played at Cibolo Steele High School, was at Cisco College before transferring to UTEP. - Bryan/College Station Eagle

  Texas Football   Texas has added another target to its passing game. Former Georgia receiver Adonai Mitchell announced Friday night that he will transfer to Texas. The Longhorns confirmed the signing later in the night. Over two years at Georgia, Mitchell won two national championships. He averaged 14.7 yards on his 38 receptions. "New home, same mission," Mitchell tweeted. This past season, Mitchell appeared in six games and scored in both of Georgia's playoff games. As a freshman, he started 12 times and caught the go-ahead touchdown against Alabama in the national championship game.

The 6-foot-4, 190-pounder was rated as a four-star prospect in the 2021 recruiting class. After the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 29, Texas coach Steve Sarkisian opined that it "kind of felt like all year we were searching for a third wideout." That shouldn't be a problem for Texas in 2023. Mitchell joins a receiving corps that's set to retain both Xavier Worthy and Jordan Whittington, who combined for 110 receptions, 1,412 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns. - Austin American Statesman

  Mississippi State Football   Mississippi State added a familiar name to its quarterbacks room Sunday afternoon. Former Vanderbilt quarterback Mike Wright committed to the Bulldogs on Sunday, he announced on Twitter. Wright entered the transfer portal Dec. 5 at the end of the 2022 season. Mostly playing behind AJ Swann for the Commodores, Wright completed 85 of 148 passes this season with 12 touchdowns and four interceptions. He finished the year with a quarterback rating of 57.7.

Then a sophomore, he delivered a solid showing, going 12 of 17 for 122 yards and a pick in a blowout win for the Bulldogs. Wright is a native of Fayetteville, Georgia. He will have two remaining years of eligibility. - The Dispatch

  Memphis Football   Memphis football may have found its next kicker after securing a commitment Saturday from Georgia Southern junior Alex Raynor. Raynor, who announced his decision on Twitter, was the starting kicker the past three seasons for the Eagles. Last season, he was 18-for-20 on field goals, 49-for-50 on extra-point attempts and led the Sun Belt in scoring with 103 points. Raynor was 8-for-10 on field goals of 30 yards or longer with a career long of 46 yards. He has two years of eligibility remaining. Memphis has only one kicker on its roster after All-AAC senior Chris Howard exhausted his eligibility. - Memphis Commercial Appeal

  Tennessee Football   Tennessee gave coach Josh Heupel a big raise that puts him among the highest-paid coaches in college football after he led the Volunteers to their best season in more than 20 years. Heupel will make $9 million per year through the 2028 football season under the contract extension announced by the school Tuesday and signed Jan. 19. That's an increase from the $5 million extension signed last July that pushed his deal through 2027. Athletic director Danny White said Heupel's results speak for themselves with an 18-8 record, including 11-2 last season, capped by a win over Clemson in the Orange Bowl.

White said Heupel and his staff have energized the program and fans with his aggressive style of football. "We just needed an innovative leader like Josh Heupel to reignite the spark," White said of program that dealt with what he called a brief period of dormancy. "It’s been fun to crash the party, but as Josh said after our Orange Bowl triumph, the best is yet to come." The Vols have beaten seven Top 25 teams since Heupel was hired in January 2021, which ranks third nationally among FBS head coaches in that span. Tennessee went 3-7 in 2020 before Heupel was hired to replace Jeremy Pruitt. Tennessee finished Heupel's second season ranked sixth by The Associated Press college football poll, the Vols' highest finish since 2001. The pay increase features a $225,000 base salary with $8.725 million in supplemental pay. - AP College Football
