02/13/19- Calvin Ashley, rFr, Auburn, 6-5, 322
The news came as not much of a surprise, which might be the most troubling part of all. Auburn's Calvin Ashley, a former 5-star offensive tackle recruit, announced plans to transfer away on Monday. His departure came after two years in which he made little to no impact for the Tigers. Ashley is the third 5-star recruit to transfer away from the Tigers in the last four years, joining running back Roc Thomas (who left for Jacksonville State) in 2016 and defensive end Byron Cowart (Maryland) in 2017. Not counting 2019 signees Owen Pappoe and Bo Nix, three of the seven 5-stars who have signed with Auburn under Gus Malzahn have now left the program for other schools before completing their eligibility. That Ashley was unable to make an impact is especially curious, given the trouble the Tigers had on the offensive line in 2018. You had to figure Ashley could have started at any of the five offensive line positions last season if he had lived up to his potential. - Creg Stephenson, AL.com

02/13/19- Jon Dietzen, rJr, Wisconsin, 6-5, 323
After seeing his snaps limited over the past two seasons, Jon Dietzen is stepping away from football due to numerous injuries. The University of Wisconsin offensive lineman, who had one year of eligibility remaining, announced the news via Twitter on Monday afternoon. "After a lot of thought and careful consideration, I've decided it is in my best interest to step away from football due to numerous injuries," Dietzen tweeted. "This was not an easy decision, as I have enjoyed every second of my football career, especially those as a Wisconsin Badger. "... It was an opportunity of a lifetime to be a part of the Wisconsin football team and to be able to call myself a Wisconsin offensive lineman. I will always cherish my time at this university. The bonds and relationships I've formed over the last four years are irreplaceable and I am forever grateful for everyone who's been a part of this experience." Dietzen started at left tackle last season but split time with sophomore Cole Van Lanen throughout the year. In 2017, Dietzen started at left guard but at times needed to be replaced by Jason Erdmann. - Jason Galloway, Madison.com

02/07/19- Chance Hall, rJr, Tennessee, 6-4, 328
Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt says that offensive lineman Chance Hall is giving up football after dealing with injuries for much of his career Pruitt made the comment Thursday night at a Nashville event to celebrate Tennessee's recruiting class. Hall had one year of eligibility remaining after playing eight games in a reserve role last season as a redshirt junior. He had sat out the entire 2017 season with a knee injury. Hall made seven starts as a freshman in 2015 and started six games in 2016. He missed the first three games of the 2016 season to recover from arthroscopic knee surgery and also was sidelined for the last four games of the season. - AP College Football

01/09/19- *Bobby Evans, rJr, Oklahoma, 6-4, 301
Oklahoma left tackle Bobby Evans says he will skip his senior year and declare for the NFL draft. Evans made the announcement in a social media post on Wednesday. Evans was a second-team All-Big 12 selection this season, helping the Sooners lead the nation in total offense. The 6-foot-5, 301-pound redshirt junior from Allen, Texas, started 40 games in three seasons. "I am incredibly grateful for the growth, wisdom and the invaluable experiences over the past four years," Evans said in the post. - AP College Football

01/04/19- *Michael Jordan, Jr, Ohio State, 6-6, 312
Ohio State will lose experience and leadership on the offensive line with center Michael Jordan's decision to leave early for the NFL draft. The 6-foot-7, 312-pound lineman announced he would forgo his senior season in a tweet on Friday, saying that "in my heart, I know I am ready for the NFL, largely because I have been coached by the very best." After starting as a true freshman and playing two years at left guard, Jordan moved to center last season to replace All-American Billy Price. Jordan's announcement comes after linebacker Malik Harrison and safety Jordan Fuller, both draft-eligible NFL prospects, said they were staying at Ohio State. Running back Mike Webster and defensive tackle Dre'Mont Jones have announced their early departures. - AP College Football

12/26/18- Juwan Bushell-Beatty, rSr, Michigan, 6-5, 326
T Juwann Bushell-Beatty became the fourth Michigan starter who has decided to skip the Wolverines' game against Florida in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Saturday, a school official confirmed. Bushell-Beatty, a fifth-year senior, didn't even make the trip with his teammates to Atlanta for the bowl game after missing the regular-season finale against Ohio State after being limited the week before because of injury. He was on the sidelines for that game. Bushell-Beatty, a New Jersey native who was a four-star member of the Wolverines' 2014 recruiting class, started 19 games during his Michigan career, including 11 this season and seven last year. He was an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection this season on teams selected by conference coaches and the media.

12/21/18- Dru Samia, Sr, Oklahoma, 6-5, 304
Oklahoma won the Joe Moore Award, given to the team with the best offensive line in the country. The Sooners were announced Tuesday as the winner of the fourth Joe Moore Award, named after the late offensive line coach for Pittsburgh and Notre Dame. The other finalists were Alabama and Georgia. The Sooners' line, coached by co-offensive coordinator Bill Bedenbaugh, paved the way for the most productive offense in the country and Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray. Oklahoma's line features tackles Bobby Evans and Cody Ford, a third-team All-American; guards Ben Powers and Dru Samia, a second-team All-American; and center Creed Humphrey. - AP College Football

12/05/18- Ben Bredeson, Jr, Michigan, 6-4, 320
Michigan offensive guard Ben Bredeson says he plans to return for his senior season instead of entering the NFL draft. The second-team, All-Big Ten player told reporters Monday he is doing his due diligence about his future, including having a meeting with coach Jim Harbaugh. Michigan safety Josh Metellus says he has not decided to stay in school or go pro, adding he has to make the decision with his family after getting feedback from the NFL. Defensive end Rashan Gary announced last week he was declaring for the NFL draft. Harbaugh says Gary will not play for the eight-ranked Wolverines against No. 10 Florida on Dec. 29 in the Peach Bowl. - AP College Football
