■ Joe Packer takes a closer look at 2014 verbal commit Jordan Hoiem.
■ Chip Kelly isn't ready to name a starting quarterback until someone proves themselves much to the ire of some players.
■ Cole Irvin will get a tryout with the USA Collegiate baseball team.
The freshman left-hander has been invited to try out for the 2013 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team this summer. Irvin will take part in the team’s training camp June 20-29 with the final 24-man roster being announced at the end of camp.
