UCLA coach Jim Mora says highly touted freshman defender Jalean Phillips is already one of the team's hardest workers: "I have high expectations for him. He's special. He's a special talent and he's a special young man. He's different."

College Football Hall of Famer Johnnie Johnson is quick with witty commentary when it comes to his sons, Kirk and Collin, playing at their beloved Texas. "I do tell them all the time, everywhere around you at the University of Texas, you have to be careful because there are pictures on the wall of your dad watching you every step of the way," Johnnie Johnson said. "They hate it when I tell them that."

Miami defensive tackle Pat Bethel believes being a legacy player at Miami means much more. His dad, Randy, won two national championships with the Canes and that tradition is something well understood. "When your father is somebody you look up to, it's easy to see how a kid would be like, 'I want to follow in his footsteps, but that legacy here is a little bit different, and I can tell. I'm not just saying that because I'm here. You may go to wherever and play because your dad played but when you come here and play at the place where your dad played, it's a little different. It's something you can feel."

Tennessee defensive back Todd Kelly Jr. has been a lifelong Vols fan thanks to his dad, who played for the team in the 1990s, and is now one of four legacy teammates preparing for the 2017 season. "We all realize it must be a special place if your family members came here and you decided to come here as well," he said. "We were not pressured into it, but decided to play here just because we genuinely wanted to. I think that's something we can all agree on, and that just tells you how special this place is. We all wanted to come here and continue the family legacy and tradition of making Tennessee a better place every day."

People trying to get into the Cashman Center an hour before LaMelo Ball faces Zion Williamson. Organizers have just instructed security to "close the doors" and block anyone else from entering due to fire code concerns. Chaotic scene.

Washington State's Mike Leach on when he first met Lincoln Riley: "I thought he'd eventually be a head coach. Very smart, very aware of all the variables, that type of thing. He was my assistant and right-hand guy for about seven years, and then when we hired him, he was the youngest position coach in the country. ... I'm not surprised he's a head coach. Maybe a little bit of how it unfolded, but I knew he'd eventually be a head coach."

Stanford DT Harrison Phillips has watched last year's loss to Washington at least 30 times. "I don't even know what happened that game, honestly. That's what everyone says but I actually don't know."
