    On college football’s signing day, the term “big recruit” is always tossed around at all 128 FBS programs. That term could be used to describe a recruit that fills a huge need or someone that the program fought hard to hold onto after other schools were looking for a late flip.

    But in BYU’s case, the Cougars officially landed the biggest prospect of signing day. No, seriously.

    Motekiai Langi was announced by BYU as a 6-foot-7 and 410-pound offensive or defensive lineman.

    Running back Ezekiel Elliott was one of the key performers in Ohio State’s run to the college football national championship in 2014. The sophomore rushed for at least 220 yards in each of his final three games and is one of the early favorites to win the 2015 Heisman Trophy.

    And Elliott isn’t going to forget the Buckeyes’ title anytime soon, as the St. Louis native recently had a tattoo added to his left arm that showcases the college football playoff trophy.

    In addition to the championship trophy, Elliott’s tattoo also features the Ohio State Block “O” logo, his number (15) and the Gateway Arch.

    New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. made some spectacular one-handed receptions as a rookie, and the LSU product recently grabbed 33 one-handed catches in 60 seconds to set a new record. The previous mark in the Guinness World Records was just 10.

    After Beckham’s 33 catches in a minute, you can bet other receivers started to plot on how to break the new record.

    Iowa’s Tevaun Smith (43 catches with the Hawkeyes in 2014) went after Beckham’s record on Friday and broke the mark with 41 in 60 minutes.

    Check out Smith’s 41 one-handed catches:

    Wisconsin running back Dare Ogunbowale is slated to see an increase in rushing attempts with Melvin Gordon off to the NFL next season, but the Milwaukee native is grabbing attention this offseason for his kicking ability.

     

    The Badgers already have a good kicker in Rafael Gaglianone, but Ogunbowale might be a serviceable option based upon this Instagram video, which features the running back kicking a spinning ball through the uprights.

    Check out this awesome trick shot video from Ogunbowale:

    Coastal Carolina is one of the nation’s most intriguing programs on the FCS level. The Chanticleers are led by coach Joe Moglia (a former CEO of TD Ameritrade) and will have a new “Teal Green Turf” coming to their stadium in 2015.

    The different colors for turfs are no stranger to college football, as Boise State’s blue turf and Eastern Washington’s red field are two recognizable places for fans.

    Now Coastal Carolina hopes to make an impression with the new field, which is slated to debut in 2015:
