According to Gridiron Now's Jimmy Hyams, Tennessee freshman T Trey Smith required stitches after getting kicked in the face by DE Darrell Taylor during Thursday's practice.

Smith apparently lost his helmet after blocking Taylor to the ground, leading the latter to kick at his face and land. Taylor has since apologized. Hyams reports that Smith won't miss any game action as a result of his injury.

North Carolina AD Bubba Cunningham said that the program self-reported several violations to the NCAA relating to players selling shoes.

"There were a number of students [who sold shoes]," Cunningham said during an ACC media event on Thursday. He added those those players -- none of whom were named -- could potentially face some sort of a suspension. While NCAA infractions are never welcomed, it could be worse. This is considered a "secondary violation," which does not carry the sort of steep penalty we've seen levied in the past. If any suspensions do develop from this case, we'll pass along word.

USC sophomore WR Joseph Lewis was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence on Wednesday night.

TMZ Sports initially broke the news of Lewis' arrest, with that report subsequently confirmed by USA Today through the LAPD. At this juncture, little information is available beyond the basic fact that the sophomore wideout was arrested at 11:00 PM on Wednesday following an alleged altercation with a woman. The timing is about as bad as can be imagined -- it comes just over a week after Lewis was released from jail after serving 21 days as part of a plea deal reached after he was arrested in February on a pair of domestic battery charges. Lewis was hopeful to be able to rejoin the Trojans for August camp, but that's almost certainly not going to happen, now. It's very possible USC moves to dismiss him altogether, though that has not yet occurred.

Missouri dismissed indefinitely suspended redshirt senior S Kaleb Prewett.

Prewett (6'1/210) has been on the bad side of HC Barry Odom since January, when the team initially moved to issue an indefinite suspension against the redshirt senior. A little over half-a-year later, the former Kansas State Wildcat has been booted altogether. We still don't know what, exactly, Prewett did to earn the ultimate dismissal, as the only reason given for his initial suspension was a boilerplate "violation of team rules." Regardless, the end result, here, is that Missouri is letting go a versatile starting defender, one who handled both strongside linebacking and safety duties at times last year.

Boise State junior RB Alexander Mattison (leg) has been participating in offseason workouts and expects to be a full participant in August camp.

Mattison (6'0/200) initially injured his lower left leg during the fourth quarter of Boise State's Mountain West title-game showdown with Fresno State this past autumn. He underwent offseason surgery to repair the health concern and subsequently sat out contact work during spring practice while continuing his rehabilitation. The junior back resumed participating in workouts in June, though it should be noted that he did have a slight setback earlier this summer, one which required another (more minor) procedure on the leg. Mattison has enough wear and tear on him that it's worth monitoring how cleanly he's able to make it through camp. This past season, he rushed for 1,086 yards and 12 touchdowns, with much of that production coming in the second half of the campaign, after he had gotten his feet under him. He was named to the Doak Walker preseason watch list earlier this week.

Virginia Tech HC Justin Fuente said that the "door's closed" on the possibility that dismissed redshirt junior S/LB Mook Reynolds could return to the team.

Not an ounce of wiggle room coming from Fuente on this one. Reynolds was arrested a week ago Monday and subsequently hit with a felony charge of selling and distributing marijuana and/or the possession of marijuana with the intent to sell or distribute. The program moved to dismiss him immediately following that arrest -- felony charges are almost universally going to get players kicked out of school. Over the past two seasons, Reynolds has posted 134 total tackles, 18.0 of which went for loss. Devon Hunter, a sophomore, could potentially be in line to step up as starter in place of Reynolds with a strong August camp.

Miami HC Mark Richt said that redshirt senior QB Malik Rosier will be the team's starter when they open the season against LSU on Sept. 2.

"He's the starter. Malik's the starter. And if something changes, I'll let you know," Richt said while addressing the media on Wednesday. None of this comes as any particular surprise, as Rosier started for the Hurricanes last season and lost no ground to dynamic dual-threat redshirt freshman N'Kosi Perry during the spring. Perry might be the sexier name, but Rosier is a dependable, known quantity after throwing for 3,120 yards (54-percent completions) with a 26/14 TD/INT ratio last season. We don't love him for a true title run, but he's certainly capable enough to keep the Hurricanes in the Playoff hunt.

Tennessee sophomore T Trey Smith (undisclosed) has been cleared to take part in August camp.

Smith (6'6/299) was sidelined for spring practice due to what Vols HC Jeremy Pruitt referred to as a "medical issue." Whatever that issue might have been, the sophomore tackle now appears to have healed up in time to take part in preseason work. After signing on in Knoxville as a five-star recruit in the 2017 class -- ESPN ranked him as the No. 1 prospect for the cycle -- Smith went on to start all 12 games as a true freshman last fall, earning All-SEC second-team honors from the Associated Press at year's end.

USC freshman QB J.T. Daniels was named the male Gatorade National Player of the Year.

This particular award goes out to the top prep athlete in the country. Daniels earned the honor for his junior campaign at Mater Dei High in Santa Ana, California, on the strength of a 2017 season in which he threw for 4,123 yards and 52 touchdowns. The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder would have been a part of the 2019 recruiting class had he not reclassified -- ala Jake Bentley and others before him -- to the 2018 class. Thus, Daniels is now enrolled at USC and battling it out to take over the starting reigns for former gunslinger Sam Darnold. Jack Sears and Matt Fink stand in his way, though we'd give Daniels a tentative edge heading into August. As for the female prep athlete who took home Gatorade National Player of the Year plaudits, that would be New York high school cross country and track and field ace Katelyn Tuohy.

North Carolina HC Larry Fedora issued a strong statement questioning the link between concussions and the degenerative brain disease CTE.

"I fear that the game will be pushed so far from what we know that we won’t recognize it 10 years from now. And if it does, our country will go down, too," Fedora said in a sometimes perplexing wondering of thought during Wednesday's media session. He attempted to argue that the CTE-concussion connection is scaring people from the game due to it being (he believes) incorrectly peddled as fact. It's not a particularly enlightened view in the year 2018 given the scientific body of work that exists on the subject. Perhaps the most problematic part of this is that Fedora is setting the example for his team with these comments.

Alabama HC Nick Saban said that the team's starting quarterback is "still to be determined."

It would have been quite the story if Saban had named a starter between Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts at SEC Media Days, of all places. This is a competition that has been breathlessly discussed throughout the offseason, with no real indicators as to where Saban and staff might be leaning. We wouldn't be surprised if the Tagovailoa/Hurts battle went down to the August wire, something we've from Saban in the past -- it was only two years ago that he declined to name his starting quarterback until just minutes before the season-opening kickoff against USC. We're not going to rule out the possibility that the team experiments with both quarterbacks in season, though we'd view that as a longshot. Obviously, we'll keep tabs on the situation as the competition develops toward its end game.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that after watching extensive game film, he believes that Michigan junior DE Rashan Gary is "the real deal"

"Gary fires off the snap with a great first step, plays with great pad level and balance while also showing the ability to flatten his angle then pursue from the backside with speed," Pauline writes, adding the intriguing nugget that the 6-foot-5, 290-pound Michigan standout looks like he still has room to grow in terms of his developmental ceiling. Gary topped Bruce Feldman's "Freaks" list earlier this month. The future NFL star-to-be is capable of running a 4.75-second 40-yard dash with a 126-inch broad jump. He'll be in play for the No. 1 overall selection next spring should he declare for the draft after the coming season.
