Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise Brown caused a stir this week, when it was revealed he reported to campus weighing 148 pounds. But Oklahoma State receiver Jalen McCleskey is proof that Brown could on weight quickly. McCleskey, who is the top returning receiver in the Big 12 with 73 catches last year, showed up to Stillwater at 150 pounds. Now, he's up to 175. His secret? "Eat whatever you want."

Thanks to his newfound rattlesnake hunting skill, Mike Gundy now has a retirement plan: "John Smith, our wrestling coach, his farm is right by mine. He's got some pretty good walks over there. I figure I can teach him. That will give John and I something to do. When we retire, we can walk around in our boots and rattlesnake hunt and make videos for YouTube."

Why did Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy go rattlesnake hunting? To be with his sons: "That's my life. I get in trouble here because I bypass on things to go be with my kids. That's no disrespect, I don't mean to be insubordinate, but I'm going to be with my children. When they grow up, that's it, I don't get those days back. In this last hunt, they were all fired up about it. I go to be with them. I ended up being more fired up about it than they did. I thought it was cool. They had a great time, but I was the first to ask, when can we go back?"

OU OC Lincoln Riley said the Sooners might have their best o-line in the three years he's been there -- the top 8 return, along with QB Baker Mayfield. That bodes well for an offense that is now unproven at WR and RB. He said he thinks they can sustain and build upon their success in spite of losing top playmakers Dede Westbrook, Samaje Perine and Joe Mixon. "We think we've got the blueprint to do it," he said, "and the guys, but we have to figure out what this group can do well and what makes us click."

Florida State is hoping for a big season from Josh Sweat, who'll be healthy for the start of the 2017 season, which would be a first. He was recovering from major knee surgery in 2015, underwent minor knee surgery during 2016 and now is waiting for his finger to heal after surgery. If healthy, he's one of the more complete defensive ends in the ACC.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney told me a few things have changed since he won a national title. There's the obvious -- more mail, more phone calls, more interview requests, more things to sign (including a cast that was cut off and mailed to him). But he said he is still trying to keep his life "simple." He is coaching his 13-yr-old's baseball team for the seventh year, cleaning out his garage and attic, and taking his family to the beach today. The difference in his team? "A true belief and confidence in golly, we can do it." He said he has never measured his own success by winning a national title. It wasn't a goal, he said -- it was a byproduct of their other goals.

Texas safety John Bonney after three spring practices and three straight seven-loss seasons: "I think we need to prove to this staff that we don't have a bunch of 5-7 guys. We need to prove to them we have very good athletes and very good football players."

Texas coach Tom Herman on pursuing a grad transfer at quarterback (LSU's Brandon Harris) even though he has promising young QBs Shane Buechele and Sam Ehlinger: "We gotta win. Lost seven games three straight years around here. If a grad transfer is better than those two and can beat them out, then we'll worry about their growth next spring." Herman said his QBs understand the situation and need for competition.

Seven schools remain in the mix for Dorian Thompson-Robinson, the nation's No. 4 dual-threat quarterback. Thompson-Robinson released his list of seven finalists via twitter, as Cal, Florida State, Michigan, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina and UCLA remain in the hunt to sign the No. 107 overall prospect and No. 2 uncommitted quarterback at this time. It looks like this could come down to a battle between Michigan and UCLA, as the Bruins established themselves early as the program to beat for Thompson-Robinson and his teammate, ESPN 300 tight end Brevin Jordan, while Thompson-Robinson's mother attended Michigan. Cal was not on his initial top-12 list, while Florida State and Oregon are programs to watch and could make a move.

Not surprisingly, a number of LSU players were sidelined for Tuesday's practice following Saturday's team scrimmage. Among them: RB Derrius Guice (ankle), DL Christian LaCouture (knee), CB Greedy Williams (unknown), TE Jamal Pettigrew (ankle) and OLB Sci Martin (knee). The only one who sounded like a possible concern was Martin, whom LSU coach Ed Orgeron said he will offer further details on later after getting test results back.

Ed Orgeron spoke to reporters Tuesday for the first time since Saturday's scrimmage at Tiger Stadium. Orgeron said new offensive coordinator Matt Canada's bunch had the upper hand Saturday and wore down the defense with its up-tempo pace.
