Previous 15 Notes |Back to Page One| Next 15 Notes


  Nine South Alabama football players plan to take advantage of the NCAA's blanket waiver granting an additional season of eligibility for 2021. Linebackers Christian Bell, Chris Henderson, Shawn Jennings and Roy Yancey, cornerback Devin Rockette and safeties Tre Young, Patrick Rosette, DJ Exilhomme and Kwameh Lewis are expected to return next season, head coach Kane Wommack confirmed to AL.com on Friday. The NCAA in August passed a rule amid the COVID-19 pandemic allowing 2020 seniors to return as "super-seniors" and not count toward roster limits next season. Eight other Jaguars players have chosen not to return in 2021, ending their college football careers. Linebacker Riley Cole, wide receiver Kawaan Baker and defensive lineman Jeremiah Littles have all chosen to enter the NFL draft. - Birmingham News

  Jake Bentley could be on the move once more. The former South Carolina quarterback, who transferred away from the Gamecocks to Utah last offseason, has re-entered the transfer portal, he confirmed to The State. The Salt Lake Tribune and 247Sports first reported the news. "Yes I am and just weighing my options," Bentley said in a text. "Want to play college ball one more year. Only get to do it one time." Bentley threw for 882 yards this season, with six touchdowns and six interceptions on a 62.1% completion rate. He also rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown.

The son of USC coach Bobby Bentley was elected a team captain and took over as starter during Utah's first game of the year when the man in front of him, Cam Rising, went down with a shoulder injury. Among Bentley's season highlights included a win over undefeated Colorado and a 91-yard touchdown pass, the second longest in school history. This past Saturday, however, he was benched in favor of backup Drew Lisk. Utah also recently added a grad transfer quarterback from Baylor, Charlie Brewer, for next season. - Rock Hill Herald

  South Alabama has hired Indiana defensive coordinator Kane Wommack to take over its team.

Wommack, who is in his third season as linebackers coach and second as the defensive coordinator at Indiana, is a candidate for the Broyles Award given to the nation’s top assistant coach.
