Ohio State could be on the brink of setting another record in the NFL draft. With Gareon Conley now projected as a first-round pick, he and Marshon Lattimore could give the Buckeyes three cornerbacks taken in that round in the last two years, following up Eli Apple from a year ago. According to ESPN Stats and Information, no team has ever done that before. If safety Malik Hooker goes that early as well, like expected, the Buckeyes could become the first to ever have four first-round DBs in a two-year span.

Mark Richt has no plans to name a starting quarterback this spring, in large part because prized signee N'Kosi Perry of Ocala, Fla., won't be on campus until this summer. The battle to replace Brad Kaaya at Miami is wide open, but it's clear that Richt thinks the 6-4, 178-pound Perry, an ESPN 300 prospect, has a chance to come in and win the job. "All I know is he can run like the wind, can really throw it and makes a lot of plays," Richt told ESPN.com. "We'll see what he can do when he gets here."

A new $34 million football facility is coming at Miami and is scheduled to be ready for the 2018 preseason camp. One of the first things Mark Richt did upon arriving back at his alma mater as coach was pledge $1 million for the construction of the complex.

Dabo Swinney had his QBs go live today with some designed run plays mixed in. It was a nice showcase for freshman Hunter Johnson, OC Tony Elliott said, showing good pocket awareness, extending some plays and knowing when to tuck the ball and take off running. "Efficient" performance by Kelly Bryant and a slow start/solid finish for Zerrick Cooper, Elliott said.

Justin Crawford commands the respect of teammates at West Virginia because of his life experience and focus on reaching his goals. Away from the field, he's driven to provide for his family. "I commend him on that part of it," WVU running back coach Tony Dews said, "because there's a lot of guys his age -- and a lot of men even older -- that are out there and may not be as responsible as he is right now."

Justin Crawford, the Big 12 offensive newcomer of the year as a running back last season at West Virginia, said "there was no decision" to make about coming back to school as a senior in 2017. The married father of two and former juco star, who has helped mentor four younger siblings since the death of their father in 2009, wants to finish his job in Morgantown. It speaks to Crawford's tireless work ethic. "When everybody else is sitting at home, relaxing, you can be getting ahead," Crawford said Tuesday in his first interview session since arriving at WVU last summer. (The school restricts first-year players from talking to the media.)

USC QB Sam Darnold knows there is no avoiding the high expectations that he will face individually and the Trojans will face as a team. "You should embrace things like that," he said.

Alabama RB Bo Scarbrough has seen his workload build since the start of practice. "He's sort of gaining confidence," Saban said of Scarbrough, who was knocked out of the national title game with a leg injury. "Our goal for Bo is by the end of spring, he's fully confident that he can do everything he needs to do. Whether he ever scrimmages or is really something that we're not that concerned about."

Nick Saban may have a running QB in Jalen Hurts, but that doesn't mean he wants to push it this spring. "I don't think it's worth getting a guy hurt in practice trying to prove the point that we're going to make them a little tougher, especially at the quarterback position," Saban said. "We try to do it with some controlled drills so that they do get hit. We really have limited the quarterback runs in the spring and are really focused on trying to develop a better passing game."

Jimbo Fisher said he wouldn't want his underclassmen working out at pro day if it came in the middle of spring camp. He said it's not good for the team or player, who wouldn't be in combine shape and could be injured from practice. Fisher was one of the loudest advocates for a junior combine, but he wants it to happen in late April or May. A recent rule change allows programs to have up to five rising juniors perform at pro day. Florida State has several rising juniors who could be high picks, including Derwin James, who is considered a 2018 first-round lock.
