Florida State redshirt sophomore WR Kelvin Benjamin's X-rays on his injured hand came back negative.

Benjamin uncharacteristically dropped a few passes against NC State, but the hand injury can likely be to blame. "He got the helmet right on the bone part of his hand, which causes immediate pain," FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. "It really didn’t swell all that badly. …they just wanted to check it out, make sure they X-rayed it, and it was fine." We just realized that the massive receiver is draft-eligible, but don't expect him to leave Jameis Winston's side after this season. He has 23 receptions for 430 yards and five touchdowns this season.

USA Today reports that Baylor fired athletics director for football operations Colin Shillinglaw and staffer Tom Hill.

Shillinglaw and Hill were ousted along with former HC Art Briles as the school continues to clean house in wake of the investigation into the handling of sexual assault claims. Shillinglaw worked behind the scenes in player dealings and was implicated in the Pepper Hamilton report. Hill was a longtime staffer.

Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh blasted Alabama's Nick Saban following the latter's negative comments about satellite camps.

Harbaugh tweeted the following on Tuesday night: "Amazing" to me- Alabama broke NCAA rules & now their HC is lecturing us on the possibility of rules being broken at camps. Truly "amazing." Saban, speaking at the SEC meetings on Tuesday, said he was not blaming Harbaugh for the camps, but thought they were a problem because they aren't monitored. He implied that violations could occur because of that. "Someone sponsors the camp, they pay them the money," Saban said. "What do they do with the money? And who makes sure the kid paid to go to camp? This is the wild, wild West at its best." Harbaugh, in turn, made light of a recent Saban assistant who recently resigned over a recruiting violation issue.

The first time Illinois HC Lovie Smith met senior DE Dawuane Smoot, Smith told him: "I want to make you a first-rounder."

It was Smoot -- and not former star teammate Jihad Ward -- who led the Illini with eight sacks, 15 TFL and three forced fumbles last year. "I want to try to be [an NFL] first-rounder and to be an All-American," Smoot said. "Double-digit sacks and then go to the league. Those are my expectations." Smoot was a track star in high school who added 40 pounds of bulk (now listed at 270) while making the transition to collegiate football star. "With Smoot leading the way," defensive coordinator Hardy Nickerson said, "we've got a group of guys we feel can play, and play at a very high level."

2017 five-star WR Tee Higgins whittled his list of finalists to five.

Higgins tweeted out his top five in order on Monday. Unsurprisingly, the home state Tennessee Vols were listed No. 1 (Higgins was once committed to the school). In order, Clemson, Ohio State, Florida State and Ole Miss round out the top-five. The 6-foot-4 1/2, 188-pounder is one of the biggest recruiting dominoes in the 2017 cycle.

Auburn junior RB Roc Thomas will transfer.

There were conflicting reports last week as to whether Thomas was looking to move on from Auburn. No more confusion -- Thomas will transfer. In a statement, HC Gus Malzahn said, "Roc Thomas has asked for his release from Auburn and I have granted his request. We wish him nothing but the best moving forward." In that initial jumble of earlier reports, Auburnsports.com's Jay G. Tate had reported that the 5-foot-11, 202-pounder was looking to transfer to Jacksonville State. SEC Country's Brandon Marcello backed up that assertion after news of Thomas' transfer broke on Tuesday, though nothing is official yet. Last season, Thomas accrued 261 yards and a touchdown on the ground while catching 11 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown. He worked as both a slot receiver and running back this spring.

Horns Digest's Chip Brown reports that the Big 12 will not be expanding or launching a conference television network in 2016.

Big 12 presidents and chancellors are scheduled to meet in Dallas next week, but all of the noise about expansion and a television network might have been just that -- noise. According to Brown's report, there simply hasn't been enough agreement as to what non-Power 5 team to invite to the conference. Houston, Memphis, Cincinnati, Boise State and BYU were just a few of the teams rumored to be in the expansion mix. As for the reported decision not to gun for a possible Big 12 network, Brown wrote that "the league’s primary TV partners - ESPN and Fox - aren’t exactly knocking down doors right now to start a conference network with the current 10 schools." While that makes for two big-ticket items that likely won't appear on the Big 12 agenda, Brown does hear that the possibility of a title game could be kicked around down in Dallas.

At the SEC spring meetings, Arkansas HC Bret Bielema reiterated his belief that undrafted underclassmen should retain their eligibility.

"The NFL doesn't want players too early that aren't ready. And the NCAA, us guys, don't want [players] to leave too early. It makes too much sense to not have it happen," Bielema said. He made this same point shortly after the draft. Bielema and Alabama HC Nick Saban are in favor of an "underclassman combine" of some variety after the close of the regular season. "If (an underclassman) could sit down with NFL people or personnel people that are making the decisions firsthand," Bielema said, "I think it could be a great resource. And you know what? It works out better for everybody. Graduation rates to go up. Success rates go up." In this most recent draft, 96 players who declared early went undrafted.

At the SEC spring meetings, Alabama HC Nick Saban went on a five-minute diatribe against satellite camps.

"There have been no specific guidelines relative to how we're managing control of this stuff," Saban said. "It's happening outside the normal evaluation window, which means we're taking time away from our players." He stressed that this is not a Jim Harbaugh issue -- Harbaugh is a supporter of satellite camps -- but rather a wider issue. "Harbaugh can do whatever he wants to do if he thinks that's what's best. There needs to be somebody who looks out for what's best for the game, not the SEC or the Big Ten or Jim Harbaugh," he said. Saban is in favor of a college football commissioner, but would not offer a candidate for the position, saying, "I'm not into politics."

Tennessee HC Butch Jones said at the SEC spring meetings that he is "proud of the culture that we have built."

Eight unnamed women have filed a Title IX lawsuit against Tennessee and Jones was asked to compare his program's situation with that of Baylor. "I'm not into comparisons. All I can speak on is the University of Tennessee. I feel strongly as everybody in our organization that we've done the right things," he said. Jones went on to explain his program's process in recruiting, saying that they "try to be as proactive as possible" with background checks. "Make no mistake about it: The first thing in our recruiting profile is character."

South Carolina senior LB Skai Moore will have surgery to repair a disc in his neck and will miss the 2016 season.

Moore is the star of South Carolina's defense and one of the most talented linebackers in the country. Moore's injury did not heal as the staff and team had hoped, so surgery is the result. The plan is for Moore to redshirt the season and return to the field in 2017 for the Gamecocks, however, Moore flirted with the NFL after last season, so that should be under consideration. There was talk of Moore playing a hybrid safety role for the Gamecocks in Will Muschamp's first season.

Addressing the NCAA Notice of Allegations against Ole Miss, HC Hugh Freeze said that "there's a big difference between making mistakes in recruiting and going out there with the intent to cheat."

"I don't have any information that anybody on my staff has been involved in any illegal payments to players or offering any inducements to players," Freeze said, "and if I did have that information, I would fire them." Four of the eight Level 1 violations levied against Ole Miss by the NCAA allegedly occurred under Freeze's watch. He insisted no ill-intent. "Have we made mistakes in recruiting? Yes, and we've taken steps to make sure we don't make those same mistakes again. But to say me or anybody on my staff is out there cheating to gain advantage just isn't true."
