Dak Prescott sharp in Mississippi State spring game (Yahoo Sports)
Dak Prescott is doing nothing to temper the massive expectations for his final college season. The Mississippi State quarterback completed 20 of 29 passes for 231 yards and three touchdowns Saturday during the Bulldogs' spring game, spreading the ball around the field with the poise expected from a senior who's already among the school's leaders in just about every passing category. Now Mississippi State is trying to make sure the rest of the roster is capable of supporting him. The early returns look promising: De'Runnya Wilson caught five passes for 92 yards and a touchdown, and the Bulldogs' rebuilt offensive line - which will have at least three new starters next season - usually gave the quarterbacks enough time to read the field and make throws.
QB Johnson makes strong case to start in Auburn spring game (Yahoo Sports)
Jeremy Johnson made a strong case to start at quarterback in Auburn's spring game. The junior threw for 252 yards and two touchdowns in one half Saturday as Team Auburn topped Team Tigers 24-14. Coach Gus Malzahn said afterward that competition was still open for the starting job. Thomas has been in competition with junior college transfer Jovon Robinson and Peyton Barber to replace the SEC's leading rusher, Cameron Artis-Payne.
Swoopes still the starter at QB after Texas wraps spring (Yahoo Sports)
Texas started spring practice with a quarterback duel and ended it with last season's starter, Tyrone Swoopes, entrenched as the No. 1. Swoopes went 17-of-31 passing for 159 yards and ran for a touchdown Saturday as Texas ended spring drills with the annual Orange-White Scrimmage. Jerrod Heard was 20 of 29 for 177 yards and also ran for a score, but threw an interception and tapered off after two early flashy drives. In his postgame comments, coach Charlie Strong at first suggested the competition for No. 1 was still open, but later made it clear it's still Swoopes' job to lose between now and a trip to South Bend, Indiana, for the Sept. 5 season opener at Notre Dame.
Childs runs for 83 yards, TD in Oklahoma State spring game (Yahoo Sports)
Rennie Childs ran for 83 yards and a touchdown to help the White team beat the Orange 31-13 in Oklahoma State's spring game on Saturday. Desmond Roland was a senior last year and Tyreek Hill was kicked off the team, so the spring offered an opportunity for Childs to establish himself before highly touted Chris Carson and Jeff Carr arrive for fall practice. Childs busted loose for a 60-yard run early in the second quarter, and tight end Zac Veatch caught a touchdown pass from Mason Rudolph on the next play to put the White up 14-6. Childs' 5-yard touchdown run in the second quarter extended the White's lead to 28-6.
Oregon State fans get first look at Andersen, Collins (Yahoo Sports)
Oregon State hosted a lighthearted spring game Saturday under new coach Gary Andersen that included field goals kicked by fans, a dance-off and the first look at freshman dual-threat quarterback Seth Collins. Andersen was hired in December after just two seasons at Wisconsin. He replaced longtime coach Mike Riley, who unexpectedly left the Beavers to fill the opening at Nebraska. ''So all of those things are positive.'' Andersen is tasked with rebuilding the Beavers, who finished last season 5-7 and out of the postseason picture.

Arkansas' Qualls turning pro after junior season (Yahoo Sports)
Michael Qualls entertained Arkansas fans for three seasons with his variety of powerful dunks. Qualls averaged 15.9 points per game this season for the Razorbacks (27-9), who reached the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2008. He made his announcement one day after Southeastern Conference Player of the Year Bobby Portis said he was leaving Arkansas for the NBA after his sophomore season. ''I'm ready to provide for my family and my son.'' Qualls had 91 dunks during his three seasons with the Razorbacks, none more dramatic than a two-handed putback with 0.2 seconds remaining in overtime to give Arkansas an 87-85 win over Kentucky last season.

Krzyzewski said Jones ''could not have done a better job for us this past year.'' It's been a busy week for freshmen heading to the pros: In the past seven days, Jones' Duke classmates Jahlil Okafor and Justise Winslow declared themselves draft-eligible.
