BOOM 2019 DT Derek Green commits to Oklahoma

The Oklahoma Sooners earned their fifth commitment of the 2019 class on Friday, as Jacksonville (NC) Southwest defensive tackle Derek Green announced his intention to play college football in Norman. The three-star recruit received an offer from Oklahoma this past weekend. At 6’5” and 309 pounds, Green has the chance to be quite an imposing force in the future. Another thing that sticks out about him is his explosiveness, which is demonstrated in both his defensive and offensive highlights. Oklahoma is relatively early to the party with Green considering that Virginia is his only other current offer. Making an impression early should only help matters in terms of his future recruitment, but it’ll

Jim Donnan recommends coaches at SEC vacancies

On Friday afternoon, College Football Hall of Fame coach Jim Donnan joined The Paul Finebaum Show to talk SEC football. One of the things he discussed with Finebaum was coaching vacancies around the conference. More specifically, he recommended coaches for each school in search of — or soon to be in search of — a new head coach. First, Donnan had a discussion with Finebaum about Tennessee. After mentioning Jon Gruden, Drennan threw out another candidate for the job. "If I was going to hire anybody at Tennessee tomorrow, I'd — straight up — go with Bobby Petrino. And the reason is the guy can win. He's a proven winner. He's won everywhere he's ever been. He can turn a program around in a New York

Dawgs set to host 5-star SEC commitment

Georgia will host 2019 five-star offensive lineman Kardell Thomas (Baton Rouge, La./Southern Lab) this weekend on an unofficial visit. The 6-foot-4, 320-pound junior has been committed to LSU for almost 16 months. "I am just getting to know the program and Coach Pittman," Thomas said, on vsporto's SEC Recruiting Buzz. "From the conversations we have had on the phone, he is a great coach, obviously, and he is very fired up about me coming for this visit." It looks like the Bulldogs will be able to get Thomas back on campus around this time next year as well. "I am probably going to give them an official visit next year," Thomas said."I have always liked Georgia. I guess they felt like I was solid

Why Saturdays rivalry game means everything to UCLA not so much for USC

As UCLA’s players filed off the field and into the locker room underneath the Rose Bowl a week ago, the fans sent them away with a loud demand. Or maybe it was more of a wish: “Beat SC!” A few hours earlier, as USC’s players celebrated winning the Pac-12 Conference South division outside the visitors’ locker room in Boulder, Colo., everyone also wanted to know about a game in the Trojans’ future. The Pac-12 championship game, two weeks ahead. Reporters asked about the championship game. Players talked about the championship game. Tight end Tyler Petite had to issue this reminder during interviews: "I think a lot of people are forgetting that we do have one more game next week." UCLA (5-5, 3-4

UNC banned Miami’s turnover chain creator from contact with Tar Heels

With the Miami Hurricanes roaring up the rankings, much attention has been directed at their new signature, the turnover chain. The turnover chain has had its own feature stories written about it in recent weeks, and the creator of that new signature sideline piece of art has become more well known because of it. According to a report from The News & Observer, however, that same jewelry artist has also been banned from having any contact with players from UNC. According to the report, Anthony John Machado was contacted by the University of North Carolina in 2010 to request he disassociate with any Tar Heel player. The timing of the letter is not coincidental, as the university was under investigation
