1 » The NCAA is currently looking into an event soon to be held at The Firepit Grill of Fort Myers, FL, which is being promoted with a flier (picture) featuring the names of four college football players including Florida Gators sophomore defensive back Jaylen Watkins. According to The News-Press, Marcus Price (known as DJ LowKey) tweeted out a picture of the flier featuring Watkins’s name along with three others – Clemson’s Sammy Watkins (his brother), West Virginia’s Brodrick Jenkins and South Florida’s Spencer Boyd. The paper reports that Watkins immediately contacted Price with a text message “telling him his name couldn’t be used to promote the party.” However, “Price said the players initially gave him permission to use their names on the advertisement.” He added that the players were not paid but rather have been invited to the event in order to be honored as some sort of “homecoming.”

2 » Former Florida defensive end Lynden Trail, who recently decided to transfer, is currently in the process of narrowing down his next destination. According to the Tallahassee Democrat, Trail recently visited Florida A&M but is looking at a number of opportunities. OGGOA spoke with Trail on Tuesday, and he indicated that – though he is “wide open” – he is currently considering a number of historically black colleges and universities and junior colleges. The idea being that he can immediately play football but “more importantly get my degree.”
