  There might not have been a bigger concern for North Texas heading into Eric Morris' debut season as the Mean Green's head coach than sorting out its quarterback situation. UNT took a key step toward that goal Tuesday, when it landed Louisiana-Monroe transfer Chandler Rogers as part of a three-man transfer haul. The Mean Green also added Georgia Tech offensive lineman Paula Vaipulu and Texas Tech offensive lineman Larry Moore III. - Denton Record

  The Bears added former Tennessee redshirt frosh running back Justin Williams-Thomas in a bit of a surprise move, scooping up the Stanford commit a week before the spring enrollment deadline. The former high 4 star running back from Dallas, Georgia played in three games this season, totaling 37 yards in 11 carries, retaining his redshirt season so he'll have 4 seasons to play 4. As a senior, the 6-0/210 running back gained 1,956 yards on the ground and 190 more through the air, adding 15 touchdowns for the season.

He was a consensus 4 star prospect in the 2022 recruiting class, signing with Tennessee last December after fielding offers from Auburn, Michigan, USC and more before signing with the Volunteers. After the departure of running backs Damien Moore, Chris Street and DeCarlos Brooks, the Bears added both Williams-Thomas and former Oregon running back Byron Cardwell-one of their primary 2021 running back targets to the running back room, joining frosh star Jaydn Ott, giving the Bears a potent 1-2-3 punch in the backfield in 2023. -

  Illinois football players Brian Hightower and Verdis Brown are entering the transfer portal. Hightower is a Los Angeles native who started his college career at Miami and transferred to Illinois in 2020 following two seasons with the Hurricanes. He spent three seasons with the Illini. He served as Illinois' second-leading pass catcher during the recently-completed 8-5 season of 2022, hauling in 37 receptions for 452 yards and two touchdowns. Hightower redshirted his 2021 season after playing in four games, and his first campaign with the Illini, in the pandemic-affected 2020 season, included him catching 11 passes for 209 yards and three scores.

Hightower departs a receivers room that expects to be paced in 2023 by Isaiah Williams, who finished with 81 receptions for 709 yards and five touchdowns this season. Illinois also should return Pat Bryant, who posted the team's second-most receiving yards this season at 453 yards, along with Casey Washington, who ranked fourth on the team in receptions (32) and receiving yards (312). - News Gazette Tribune
