SI's Peter King is "hearing doubts" on Alabama CB Dee Milliner, and adds that the cover man could fall out of the top five.

We can buy it, since Milliner isn't a complete product right now. Specifically, Alabama corners of late have not been asked to back pedal in coverage, which is frequently utilized at the NFL level. He's very physical downfield and when helping in run support, but Milliner is no lock for the Lions at No. 5, who might go with a pass rusher instead.

Oregon dismissed senior LB Fotu Leiato following his late April arrest on charges of second-degree criminal mischief and second-degree theft.

Leiato (6'0/200) was actually dismissed immediately after his arrest, but the news of that dismissal is just breaking now. He's being cut loose in relation to an odd incident in April in which he was arrested after he removed a parking boot from his vehicle. That's a no-no. He also skipped out on an early April court appearance -- relating to an unpaid bus fare in November -- which led to an arrest warrant being issued on April 9. Leiato had turned in a strong spring prior to his running afoul of the law. He ends his Oregon career having appeared in 38 games (just one start), with 37 tackles recorded in that space.

Tennessee redshirt junior LB Darrin Kirkland will transfer as a graduate.

Kirkland (6'1/230) began his career in Knoxville with much promise, posting 66 tackles (6.5 for loss), three sacks and an interception as a true freshman during the 2015 season. It's been a slog for him on the health front since that productive entrance into the collegiate game, though. He missed six games in 2016 due to a high ankle sprain and was forced to sit out the entirety of the 2017 campaign due to a torn meniscus sustained in preseason camp. He subsequently underwent surgery on that knee. While his career has taken a few disappointing turns thus far, Kirkland still has two years of eligibility remaining to play around with once he settles on his transfer home.

Transferring Clemson freshman DT Josh Belk said that his unofficial visit to South Carolina on Wednesday "went great."

"I had a good conversation with [C]oach Muschamp about how much I can help the team. The coaches are still the fans towards me. They still want me. Showed that feelings never changed," Belk said. Several times in the above quote, the 6-foot-3, 325-pounder alluded to the fact that he and South Carolina were involved in an advanced courtship over the winter before the four-star defensive tackle signed on with Clemson in February. Georgia is playing host to the defensive tackle on Thursday. Regardless of whether he opts for the Gamecocks or Bulldogs (or Chanticleers -- Coastal Carolina should be viewed as a dark horse contender, here), he'll have to sit out the 2018 season to satisfy NCAA regulations.

Owen Brennan, the father of LSU sophomore QB Myles Brennan, said that his son remains "in a very, very good position to compete for the starting job" even after the team's addition of Ohio State QB Joe Burrow.

"He's going to compete and feels very comfortable with where his position is right now," said the elder Brennan of his son's place with the Tigers. Burrow transferred over to LSU earlier this month. While it's not uncommon for parents to hang the threat of transfer over a given program's head when playing time is potentially in jeopardy, Mr. Brennan did not even vaguely allude to his son considering a move. Brennan, Burrow, Lowell Narcisse and Justin McMillan will all be battling it out for starting honors in August camp.

Kentucky redshirt junior S Marcus Walker was arrested on Thursday on suspicion of trafficking marijuana and cocaine.

Walker (6'1/208) was arrested in the early-morning hours on Thursday. He's being accused of trafficking five pounds of marijuana and four grams of cocaine. A drug paraphernalia charge is also on the docket, here. Connecting the dots further, per the authorities, a search warrant for Walker's home resulted in the finding of a large amount of cash. Kentucky is aware of the arrest and in the process of gathering information. As of yet, they have not moved to suspend the redshirt junior. The former four-star recruit worked mostly as a special teams cog last season.

In their updated post-spring depth chart released on Wednesday, Clemson listed senior QB Kelly Bryant as the starter.

No "OR" about it with this one, as Bryant was definitively listed as starter with much-heralded true freshman Trevor Lawrence backing him up. We wouldn't read too much into this. Bryant took the opening snaps with the first-team in the spring and it would have required a monumental effort to leapfrog the incumbent starter in just a few weeks of practice time. The real test, here, will come in preseason camp. While Bryant is a serviceable starter who brings plus attributes to the table -- particularly as a runner -- Lawrence is considered a generational talent and has (by all accounts) acclimated well this offseason. Stay tuned for August.

Indefinitely suspended USC sophomore WR Joseph Lewis has reached a plea deal in which he's plead no contest to a pair of domestic battery charges.

Lewis looked like he was heading to trial in his ongoing domestic violence case -- the charges against him stemmed from two alleged incidents of domestic violence that precipitated his arrest in February -- but has now accepted the plea deal which he had initially ejected late last week. The fallout: Lewis will be on summary probation for 36 months, has been banned from possessing, using or owning a firearm for the next 10 years and will be required to take part in weekly domestic violence treatment program. He'll also be serving 60 days in the county jail (starting on June 15), though good behavior and such could get that knocked down to 30 days. In addition to all this, a protective order remains in place preventing the sophomore from approaching within 100 yards of the victim in this case. With his legal matters at an end, the wideout is hopeful he'll be reinstated to the team by the start of August camp. USC suspended him indefinitely following his initial arrest.

USC and Alabama have officially agreed to a season-opening contest for Sept. 5, 2020, in Arlington, Texas.

Reports of this match-up have been floating about this spring. It's official, now. The last time the two teams met -- opening the 2016 season -- it proved to be one of the more impactful games in recent memory for reasons far beyond the 52-6 final margin for Alabama. Midway through the contest, Jalen Hurts took over for Blake Barnett at quarterback for the Tide, while on the Trojans' sideline, we saw an inept Max Browne-led offense which would be helmed by Sam Darnold just weeks later.

With Georgia Tech's new multi-year APR (academic progress rate) standing at 980, HC Paul Johnson's $100,000 contract bonus has gone into effect.

The Yellow Jackets posted a single-year APR mark of 974. Johnson's crew merely had to hit 950 for him to earn his bonus. Among the other coaches to take home some extra ice cream money on the basis of how their kids performed when hitting the books, Gus Malzahn ($75,000), Ed Orgeron ($75,000) and Will Muschamp ($50,000) all took home nice bonuses. Two other APR notes: Northwestern's 997 multi-year mark led all FBS programs, while Florida State's multi-year mark of 941 scraped the bottom of the barrel.

Transferring Clemson freshman DT Josh Belk is visiting South Carolina and Georgia this week.

Belk (6'3/325) will be checking out the Gamecocks on Wednesday and the Bulldogs on Thursday. South Carolina could have an inside track, here. The former four-star defensive tackle was seeing heavy interest from HC Will Muschamp and staff throughout the most recent recruiting cycle and said that he was very close to signing with the program before he ultimately sided with Clemson. Coastal Carolina is also a potential player, here, though they should be considered a longshot for Belk's services. Having enrolled early at Clemson, this move -- wherever it might take him in the FBS -- is going to cost him the 2018 season, as he'll be required to sit it out to satisfy transfer regulations.

Tulane extended HC Willie Fritz through the 2023 season.

A little two-year extension for Fritz, here. While he has yet to find his groove with the Green Wave, this makes for a nice show of support from the athletic department. Fritz took over as head coach in December of 2015. In his first two seasons at the helm of the ship, the program's turned in a 9-15 record. It fell just short of bowl eligibility last season.
