— In speaking to a source close to former UCLA linebacker Myles Jack, I learned he's well ahead of his rehab schedule and is already doing weighted squats and field work as he recovers from a torn meniscus. Jack, who played running back and linebacker for the Bruins, projects as a top-15 pick at linebacker.
— Keep an eye on Auburn left tackle Shon Coleman. The junior is a cancer survivor (leukemia) and a top-tier athlete with a big mean streak. Former NFL lineman and current offensive lineman trainer LeCharles Bentley compared him to Willie Roaf this week.
— Eastern Washington receiver Cooper Kupp has dominated the record books in his last two seasons, and the junior announced on his Instagram account that he'll return for one more season at EWU and not enter the 2016 NFL draft.
— Former Ohio State defensive end Noah Spence dominated at Eastern Kentucky this fall, and in a conversation this week he told me he's been invited to the 2016 Senior Bowl and plans to accept the invite. Although he's a junior, Spence graduates from EKU on December 11 and is therefore eligible for the Senior Bowl. A first-round talent on the field, but he must answer questions about failed drug tests that led to his dismissal from Ohio State.
