Illinois has dismissed suspended junior WR Darius Millines after his violation of team policy.
Defensive end Darrius Caldwell has also been dismissed. Millines was second on the team with 319 receiving yards on 32 catches in 2012. Head coach Tim Beckman was the one who made the decision.
Redshirt freshman QB Marquise Williams has re-enrolled at UNC.
Williams had reportedly left the school after signing day, a surprising move at the time. However, it has now apparent that Williams did not qualify academically for the spring semester, but those off-field issues appear to have been cleared. Mitch Trubisky exited spring as the No. 2 quarterback on the roster as a true freshman, but Williams held that spot last year.
Former Arizona and current Washington State senior RB Daniel Jenkins will transfer back to the Wildcats.
Jenkins is a graduate student, so we doubt he will have to sit out the 2013 season despite his first transfer only taking place five months ago. He was Arizona's backup running back last season and will likely hold onto that role, even though he went through spring activities with Washington State.
Tulane senior WR Wilson Van Hooser has asked for his release from scholarship in the hopes of transferring to a different program.
"I need to step up for my family, and I need to be the one to be back in Montgomery (Ala.) to help out as much as I can," Van Hooser said. As the quote says, Van Hooser intends to transfer closer to home. He graduates this spring, so he will not have to redshirt the 2013 season.
Tulsa starting sophomore K Daniel Schwarz will seek a transfer.
Wide receiver Adam Boyd is also leaving the school, and neither gave a reason, at least publicly, for their departures. Schwarz connected on 12-of-18 field goal attempts and 52-of-59 extra points last season. Carl Salazar, a former walk on, appears to be in line for the starting kicker duties.
CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman reports former Texas Tech junior DT Delvon Simmons will visit USC on Sunday.
Simmons is a former five star recruit and started every game in 2012, registering six tackles for loss, including two sacks. The Trojans are fairly young at the position, with future NFL prospects like George Uko and Leonard Williams leading the way, but that won't stop them from potentially adding Simmons to their roster.
Virginia Tech senior Tariq Edwards will continue to start at ILB for the Hokies in 2013.
He will be bookended by Jack Tyler and Ronny Vandyke. These three spots appear to be locked in, but the backup spots are up for grabs. The Hokies have taken a few steps back, but the defense should improve if the offense converts fewer turnovers.
Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes evaluators should keep an eye out for Oregon State senior CB Rashaad Reynolds.
Reynolds "has popped on tape," Weidl tweeted. "Physical, instinctive and has ball production." Reynolds played alongside Jordan Poyer last season, who lacked outstanding physical skill but showed good awareness in a variety of coverages. The senior will start for the third straight year at the position.
