  Jarren Williams informed Miami on Thursday that he is entering the transfer portal, a move that comes three days after former Houston quarterback D'Eriq King decided to join the Hurricanes. Williams started 10 of Miami's 13 games this past season, after beating out N'Kosi Perry and Tate Martell for the first-string job. But with King - the presumed starter for 2020 - arriving this week, it was presumed that some of Miami's incumbent quarterbacks would look elsewhere. Atlanta-based attorney Thomas Mars, who represents Williams, said the quarterback was going to fill out his paperwork to make the entry into the portal official on Thursday before he was delayed by his class schedule. Mars said Williams will finish the paperwork Friday. - AP College Football

  Wide receiver Velus Jones will join Tennessee as a graduate transfer from Southern California. Jones already had said Jan. 9 on social media that he was going to play for the Volunteers. Tennessee announced Wednesday that Jones was joining its program. Because Jones has already graduated from USC, he'll be eligible to play immediately for Tennessee. "Velus is a dynamic player with the ball in his hands," Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt said in a statement. "He will immediately add veteran leadership to our team and be an impact player as both a receiver and as a return guy." Jones, who is 6 feet and 190 pounds, had 36 career receptions for 347 yards at USC. He also has 81 career kickoff returns and averages 24 yards per attempt. He had six catches for 36 yards as well as 29 kickoff returns for 704 yards this past season. He scored on a 100-yard kickoff return in a season-opening victory over Fresno State. - AP College Football

  2019 NORTHEAST-10 ALL-ROOKIE TEAM (COACHES): Jackson Ostrowsky, SCSU,...Ostrowsky had an historically incredible season for the Owls after assuming the starting quarterback spot three games into the season. Ostrowsky became the second Owls' quarterback to throw for 2,000 yards as a freshman, joining Steve Armstrong, as he finished the season with 2,185 yards on 155-185 passing (54.58%) with 17 touchdowns in seven games for a 312 yards-per-game average.

Ostrowsky's 2,185 passing yards were the most in a season since Kevin Lynch totaled 2,222 in 2011 while his 17 touchdown passes were the most since Lynch threw for 24 in 2010. Ostrowsky was also one of five freshman quarterbacks in NCAA Division II football to pass for over 2,000 yards, and the only one to do so in fewer than nine games. In addition, he is the only Southern quarterback in program history to throw for 400 yards in two games in the same season. - Southern Connecticut State Football

  Auburn defensive coordinator Kevin Steele has agreed to a three-year contract through the 2022 season. Auburn coach Gus Malzahn announced the deal on Wednesday. The school did not release terms of the contract. Steele was set to make about $1.9 million last year. Auburn has ranked in the top 20 nationally in scoring defense in each of Steele's four seasons. Besides the Tigers, only four other FBS programs have held opponents under 20 points per game in each of the last four seasons. Auburn's defense produced two potential high NFL draft picks this season, defensive tackle Derrick Brown and defensive end Marlon Davidson. - AP College Football

  A judge on Thursday dismissed the marijuana possession charge filed against former Utah State quarterback Jordan Love. Four USU athletes, including Love, were cited for the misdemeanor last month after Logan police responded to a complaint at a housing complex near the campus. They all received a spot drug test, which revealed marijuana was in their system. All four athletes were released at the scene. - Salt Lake Tribune

  2019 ALL-NORTHEAST-10 CONFERENCE FIRST TEAM (COACHES): LB CJ Miller, Saint Anselm,...Miller led the NE10 with 9.7 tackles per game, on average, and finished with 107 to his credit in 2019. He also led the league in sacks with 10.5 to his credit, racking up a total of 93 yards lost on quarterback takedowns. He also executed 14 tackles for a combined loss of 100 yards while forcing three fumbles and logging two interceptions. His 0.27 forced fumbles per game topped the NE10 and he also led the conference in sacks per game (0.95), the latter statistic ranking 11th in all of NCAA Division II this season. His 1.3 tackles for a loss per game is the conference's third-best figure, as was his 5.3 solo tackles per contest.

Miller recorded seven double-digit tackle games in 2019 and tabulated at least one sack in all but two games on the season. He logged at least six solo tackles in each of his final four career games and notched 30 tackles against perennial NE10-power Assumption across two games on the season. Among active NCAA Division II student-athletes, Miller's 145 assisted tackles stand as the 16th most in the nation and his 282 career tackles place him in the top-25. In all-time Hawks history, Miller ranks third all-time in assisted tackles and fourth in total tackles. He was a Third Team All-Conference selection in 2018. - Saint Anselm Football

  Javon Kinlaw's motivation comes from his past, having lived at times without running water or electricity. Those humble beginnings drive the South Carolina defensive tackle to play with a different kind of aggression and have helped him become one of the top NFL prospects at this week's Senior Bowl. He is trying to cement his status as a first-rounder and perhaps even a top 10 draft pick. Kinlaw has traveled a path from poverty to junior college to the Southeastern Conference to arrive at this point.

A first-team Associated Press All-American last season, Kinlaw - along with his mom Leesa James and two brothers - immigrated from Trinidad and Tobago. He describes a childhood that included bouts of virtual homelessness and living in a basement in Washington D.C., filling buckets from a neighbor's hose for baths, eating lots of bologna and hot dogs and sharing shoes with his brothers even though they were a couple of sizes apart. "It just makes me play with an aggression, a different kind of aggression," Kinlaw said this week. "People just doing you wrong all your life. Football just became an outlet for that type of stuff. It's been working in my favor, honestly." - AP College Football
