San Jose State senior CB Bene Benwikere has totaled five pass breakups and an interception in two games.

Benwikere faced top competition last week against Stanford and didn't back down. The Spartan has slot experience as well, which will only help his evaluation. He will post more tape worth watching against competition like Utah State, Nevada, Fresno State and Wyoming this season.

Uncommitted four-star 2017 LB Jacob Phillips will take official visits to Oregon, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Alabama and LSU.

Phillips will take an official visit to Oregon when they host UC-Davis on September 3, Oklahoma when they host ULM on September 10, Notre Dame when they host Michigan State on September 17, Alabama when they host Kent State on September 24 and LSU when they host Missouri on October 1. Rivals recruiting analyst Woody Wommack notes that the Sooners should be considered the front-runner for the 6-foot-3, 231-pounder's commitment at this juncture. Oregon is the only school in that bunch not to receive an unofficial visit. Wommack colleague Nick Krueger noted early in the summer that Phillips' "competitive nature combined with his size" helped turn him into a favorite of coaches during the offseason camp circuit.

Florida State's contingent at the ACC Kickoff has not shed any light on their quarterback starter for 2016.

Dalvin Cook did tell reporters he believes the Seminoles are good enough to beat Clemson this coming season (he noted that they were "just a few plays away" in 2015), but who might be leading the charge against the Tigers on October 29 is another question. HC Jimbo Fisher said that this summer, players in offseason workouts would tell him that redshirt senior QB Sean Maguire might perform better one day, only for redshirt freshman QB Deondre Francois to come out on top in the next session. FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman speculated in mid-June that Francois would overtake Maguire "sooner [rather] than later."

ACC commissioner John Swofford indicated that the NBA's decision to pull the All-Star Game from Charlotte will have no bearing on the ACC Championship Game.

Adam Silver and the NBA are backing off on plans to play the 2017 All-Star Game in Charlotte due to North Carolina House Bill 2, a law which could be seen as limiting anti-discrimination protections for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. While the ACC has yet to take that step for its conference title game, played annually in Charlotte at the end of the season, Swofford said that the conference would reevaluate matters in October. "Right now what our schools want to do is to see how this plays out and where it ends up," he explained, "because it's still in process to one degree or another and the courts may well ultimately decide that."

Arkansas redshirt senior RB Kody Walker squatted 700 lbs on Thursday.

The achievement might be even more impressive considering Walker broke his right foot during a practice session in mid-April. He was fully cleared in June. The Razorbacks lost both Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams to the NFL, along with quarterback Brandon Allen and tight end Hunter Henry. The Razorbacks will basically be fielding an entirely new set of skill players this season, and Walker should be a productive member of the backfield.

The Ivy League has volunteered to test moving kickoffs to the 40-yard line during the 2016 season.

Touchbacks will also line up at the 20-yard line. Normally, teams kick off at the 35-yard line and touchbacks are taken at the 25-yard line. For years, some have suggested kickoffs could be completely eliminated in the future, as it is viewed as the most dangerous series in football. The Ivy League could be viewed as "progressive" in adopting rule changes, as they have banned tackling in practice.

Virginia Tech HC Justin Fuente indicated that redshirt junior RB Marshawn Williams (knee) is expected to enter August camp 100% healthy.

Williams' last two seasons have been cut short due to a pair of serious knee injuries. He tore his left ACL in November of 2014 and subsequently underwent surgery, then was forced to undergo a second surgery on that same knee after re-injuring it last October. Rivals ranked the 5-foot-11, 229-pounder as the 29th best running back in the country for the 2014 cycle. In his nine healthy games during the 2014 season, Williams managed 475 yards on the ground at 3.8 YPC while scoring four touchdowns. He could see backup work behind Travon McMillian this coming season, assuming he can maintain his health.

The ACC and ESPN announced a 20-year agreement for a future ACC Network set to launch by August, 2019.

No surprise here, as ESPN's Brett McMurphy sort of stole his own network's thunder by reporting on the agreement earlier this week. The deal will run through the 2035-2036 academic year. While the ACC Network won't have its proper launch until 2019, they will be starting up their digital platform this autumn. That is expected to show in the neighborhood of 600 live events. The television network will carry upwards of 1,300 when it lurches to life in three years. Also of note, if Notre Dame were to opt out of independence in the next 20 years, they would be contracted to join the ACC.

In an anonymous ESPN poll of Big 12 coaches, Houston and BYU were the most favored candidates to join via expansion.

Each of the 10 coaches in the Big 12 were asked by the Worldwide Leader to name their two preferred expansion candidates. And apparently they had Cougars on their minds, as both Houston and BYU received five votes apiece to pace the field. That pair was followed up by Cincinnati and Memphis (four votes each), with Colorado State and UCF rounding out the proceedings with solitary votes. All of these teams outside of Colorado State and BYU ply their trade in the AAC. If one of them were to eventually opt to join the Big 12 (or any other conference, for that matter), they would have to provide 27 months' notice and a $10 million exit fee.

Florida HC Jim McElwain confirmed widespread reports that junior QB Treon Harris has transitioned to wide receiver.

Gridiron Now's Mike Huguenin reported back in February that Harris would be shifting over to wideout in the spring. That played out as expected. McElwain explained that the move was a logical one. "You’ve got to look at the fit," he said. "Nothing he did. Guys around him didn’t play great either. So I’ll never put that on a player." The 5-foot-11, 190-pound senior largely struggled as a passer in 2015, completing only 50.6% of his passes and posting an uninspiring 9/6 TD/INT ratio. While he continues to work out at Florida's facilities in advance of August camp, Harris' status for the 2016 season remains uncertain. He has been serving an indefinite suspension for reasons unknown since early March. During SEC Media Days, McElwain said, "Nothing's been resolved yet and there's really not a timeframe on it."

NC State senior WR Jumichael Ramos will miss the 2016 season after undergoing knee surgery.

Ramos will take a redshirt this season. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound wideout underwent the surgery earlier this month. "If J-Mike had tried to play, he would have had to deal with nagging injury all season and not be able to play to the level that he is capable of playing," said HC Dave Doeren. "I'm happy that he will be able to enjoy a senior season [in 2017] at top form." Last season, Ramos caught 34 passes for 457 yards and three touchdowns. With his sidelining, the Wolfpack's top returning receiver is now senior Bra'lon Cherry, who accumulated a modest 288 receiving yards in 2015.

Texas freshman QB Shane Buechele is the favorite to start, according to Mike Finger of the San Antonio Express-News.

Longhorns HC Charlie Strong was asked by a reporter if any quarterback on the roster was capable of winning the Big 12. The reporter did not mention a name. Strong responded by saying "he’s going to be young," an obvious allusion to the teenager Buechele. The 6-foot-1, 191-pound wowed over the spring, running new coordinator Sterlin Gilbert’s new up-tempo offense as though he grew up in the system. To start in the heavily anticipated opener against Notre Dame on Sept. 4, Buechele will have to hold off senior Tyrone Swoopes and sophomore Jerrod Heard next month. Strong indicated he may play two quarterbacks in the opener to employ Swoopes’ Wildcat package. Some took that to mean that Swoopes has essentially been ruled out of consideration for the starting spot, and Strong didn't try to dissuade them from that option especially hard. "It really doesn’t bother me for a freshman to start at quarterback," Strong said. "He’s surrounded by enough."
