  Two months after joining Washington State's football team, Isaiah Paul is heading back to the portal. The senior linebacker, who signed with WSU in early January, announced Wednesday over Twitter that he plans to reenter the NCAA transfer portal in May. Paul spent the past five years at Incarnate Word. The 6-foot-2, 230-pounder was a three-year starter at the FCS program in San Antonio - though injuries derailed his 2022 campaign. Paul recorded 137 tackles and 20 1/2 tackles for loss between 2019-22.

Paul was expected to compete for a significant playing role at WSU in 2023. The Cougars also added transfer LBs Devin Richardson (Texas) and Ahmad McCullough (Maryland). Those two will be in the mix for starting jobs along with WSU veteran Kyle Thornton and redshirt freshman Hudson Cedarland - one of the prized recruits in WSU's 2022 class. - Spokesman-Review

  Jacari Carter enrolled in January after transferring from Merrimack, where he earned all-conference and Freshman All-America honors at the FCS level. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining. Carter caught 125 passes for 1,227 yards and 13 touchdowns in 25 games at Merrimack. As a freshman in 2021, he had 89 receptions for 713 yards and eight touchdowns in 11 games in 2021. His 89 receptions were four shy of Cooper Kupp's FCS season record.

Head coach Shawn Elliott has been impressed with Carter since he arrived on campus. "He has done an exceptional job," Elliott said. "He has fit in so well with our football program. He's intelligent, he's an extremely hard worker and he's a good leader. He's small in stature, but he plays big. "You always look to improve a position in recruiting, and I think we hit a home run with that young man." - Georgia State Football

  For the University of Hawaii football team, spring practice ended almost as soon as it began. The Rainbow Warriors were the second earliest team in the country to begin spring practices on Feb. 6, only behind Bowling Green. On Friday, spring ball ended for the 'Bows in order to cater to construction set to take place at UH-Manoa's grass practice fields, as well as the Clarence T.C. Ching Athletics Complex.

Over the last four weeks, the Rainbow Warriors installed a base run and shoot playbook on offense, which the team plans to run under the guidance of head coach Timmy Chang, who ran the offense himself for UH from 2000 to 2004. Hawaii's 2023 schedule, which was released on Thursday, begins on Aug. 26 at Vanderbilt. - KHon2.com

  That whistling in the 35 mph wind was Joey Yellen whipping another pass to a University of Hawaii receiver at the Ching Complex's football field. Six months after transferring from Pittsburgh and four months after ceding the starting quarterback's job, Yellen has impressed in the first four practices of the Rainbow Warriors' spring training. Head coach Timmy Chang has likened Yellen to Nick Rolovich, who rebounded from a difficult 2000 season to set several UH passing records in 2001.

"Rolo was one of the best quarterbacks who played here," Chang said of his former teammate. "If Rolo had another two years, three years or so, imagine what he would have done with this offense. I see Joey in (Rolovich). It's his frame (6 feet 3, 215 pounds). It's his demeanor. It's his ability to throw the ball, understand where the ball needs to go on time. He's not going to wow you with his athleticism, but he's going to distribute the ball, and that's what reminds me the most of Rolo." Brayden Schager is atop the six-quarterback depth chart this spring. But Chang, who will call the offensive plays this season, said there is talent - and competition - in the quarterback room. "Schager gets the No. 1 spot, but Joey's right there," Chang said. "He's competing. He's throwing the ball right underneath the chin (of a receiver). He's understanding the standard of distributing the ball. I love where he's at. He's in a good place. He's calmer, confident, and he understands." - Honolulu Advertiser

  The run and shoot offense, which became synonymous with the University of Hawaii football program two decades ago when June Jones was coaching the team, made a full-fledged return on Monday morning when the Rainbow Warriors kicked off spring practice. Hawaii went 3-10 in Timmy Chang's first season as head coach in 2022. The Rainbow Warriors did not run the run and shoot in 2022 under new offensive coordinator Ian Shoemaker, although certain run and shoot concepts were installed during the team's bye week after the team had started 1-4. Starting in 2023, the Rainbow Warriors will fully be a run and shoot team under Chang, who ran the offense himself as a quarterback for UH from 2000 to 2004, becoming the NCAA's all-time leading passer in the process until he was surpassed by Houston's Case Keenum in 2011.

The first quarterback to get a crack at running the run and shoot in a game this fall appears to be Brayden Schager, a junior who spent portions of his first two seasons starting games for the 'Bows. Despite that, he has yet to enter a college season as a starter. Schager also spent part of his winter break working with former UH quarterbacks coach Dan Morrison in the Dallas area, where Morrison helped Schager work on some run and shoot concepts and drills conducive to running the offense. - Khon2.com

  Odieu Hiliare and Abdul-Fatai Ibrahim put up impressive numbers together at Alabama A&M. The two wide receivers want to do the same thing at Bowling Green State University. Hiliare and Ibrahim, Florida natives who excelled together for three seasons at the Football Championship Subdivision school, have reunited in northwest Ohio. Ibrahim transferred to BGSU in mid-January, around one year after Hiliare joined the Falcons. "When we first came to A&M, met in the 2019 summer, we told each other we're going to start something together and we're going to finish it together," Ibrahim said. "We started at A&M, and we're going to finish at Bowling Green." Hiliare and Ibrahim both have one season of eligibility remaining. The duo will be aiming to recreate the magic when they combined for nearly 2,000 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns the last time they played together in 2021. - Toledo Blade

  The University of Hawaii football team is set to upgrade its offense with Monday's first of 15 spring practices. Last year's spring training, the first under head coach Timmy Chang, was intended to promote unity following a tumultuous end to the 2021 season. This year's aim is to fully implement the run-and-shoot offense that was prolific for 13 UH seasons through 2011 and found revived success in 2018 and 2019. The Warriors used a mashup of schemes last season. Chang and co-offensive coordinators Ian Shoemaker and Roman Sapolu will craft the game plan in meetings and practices each week during the season. But Chang, a record-setting, run-and-shoot quarterback at UH and Saint Louis School, will call the offensive plays during games.

Brayden Schager enters spring training as the No. 1 quarterback. When the Warriors began introducing elements of the run-and-shoot in last season's fifth game, Schager "started making some great throws," according to Chang. "He's gotten better. Schager throws the ball hard. Schager knows the drops. He's been good." Chang said Joey Yellen, who transferred from Pittsburgh last summer, "reminds me of (Nick) Rolovich 100%." In 2020, Chang joined the Warriors as a freshman and Rolovich transferred from City College of San Francisco. From an initial nine-quarterback field, Rolovich won the starting job. But after two uneven games, Rolovich was replaced by Chang. The next season, following an injury to Chang, Rolovich had a record-setting season. Against Miami (Ohio) and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Rolovich threw for 500 yards and seven touchdowns. Similar to Rolovich, according to Chang, Yellen has "that intelligence. The ball comes out on time." - Honolulu Advertiser

  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

  01/28/23 - Drew PynerSo/2026, Transfer + More +

  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
