2018 WR Tre Turner has five camps lined up for June.

Turner pulls double-duty at Northwest Guilford, playing on both the basketball and football teams. The 6-foot-4, 175-pounder's scheduled June camps consist of a little from Column A and a little from Column B. Strictly on the football side, he will traveling to the camps of Maryland, Alabama, Ohio State and Clemson. He will be taking part in both basketball and football camps at Virginia, while Appalachian State will host him at their basketball camp. Again, this is just his June schedule. Rivals analyst Adam Friedman noted that schools that would give him opportunities in both basketball and football could have a higher chance at nabbing his commitment.

ESPN's Tom Luginbill compared Ohio State four-star 2017 CB Shaun White to LSU senior CB Tre'Davious White.

"Length on the perimeter is important, which is what makes Wade and White stand out," Luginbill wrote. "Tall, long and with great range these two both have ideal measurables for the new age cornerback." The 6-foot-2, 175-pound Wade committed to the Buckeyes in January of 2015. Should he back out of that longstanding pledge, Florida, Florida State, Notre Dame, USC or UCLA could play a part in the play before the curtain closes.

Rivals recruiting analyst Woody Wommack wrote that Alabama five-star 2017 T Alex Leatherwood "turned in one of the most dominating performances at any camp" with his work at the Rivals Camp Series regional in New Orleans.

"The hulking prospect is known for his mean streak when it comes to finishing blocks," Wommack noted, "and his full array of skills was on display during his camp showing." The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder committed to Alabama last summer, though he did visit Florida earlier this offseason and said "I like everything about Florida." Along with the Tide and Gators, the likes of Michigan, Miami, LSU and USC could play a role in his final landing spot in February. For now, at least, ESPN 300's No. 9 overall recruit remains in Alabama's net.

Based on conversations with orthopedic experts, Gridiron Now's Tony Barnhart said that he is "going to be surprised" if Georgia senior RB Nick Chubb plays early in 2016.

"The orthopedic people that I’ve talked to say from the date you injure the way he injured that knee, it’s a calendar year," Barnhart told 1010XL in Jacksonville. Chubb suffered his left knee injury on the team's first offensive series against Tennessee on October 10. HC Kirby Smart has played the "cautiously optimistic" card when it comes to the 5-foot-10, 228-pound senior, but has not committed to Chubb starting the season-opener against North Carolina on September 3. We should have a much better idea of Chubb's recovery and readiness when preseason camp boots up in August. The yearlong rehab timetable Barnhart cites is by no means hard and fast for every player.

ESPN's Tom Lugbill noted that Georgia five-star 2017 S Richard LeCounte III and Alabama senior S Eddie Jackson share a similar "corner-like change of direction ability."

"These two have almost identical measurables," Luginbill wrote, "and now Jackson has blossomed into a 200-pounder which we expect LeCounte to do as well. The added bulk could help in run support and durability." ESPN 300 lists LeCounte at 5-foot-11, 176 pounds, giving him room to grow with the Bulldogs. A native of Hinesville, Georgia, LeCounte received offers from heavy-hitters Alabama, Clemson, Florida State and Florida (among others), but chose to commit to Georgia in mid-December.

Baylor redshirt senior QB Seth Russell wrote on Instagram that "[a]lthough I was in a different hemisphere, the heartache was still immensely present [after HC Art Briles' firing]."

Russell addressed Briles' firing, but only in generality. "My prayers for Baylor University are that we never forget that we need God as desperately on our best days as we do on our worst," Russell wrote. "We will overcome. We will become stronger. We will be who God has allowed us to be." At the time of Briles' firing on Thursday, Russell was in South America doing missionary work along with over 30 other Baylor student-athletes.

ESPN's Tom Luginbill compared four-star 2017 CB Jeffrey Okudah to Michigan sophomore LB/DB Jabrill Peppers.

"The speed, range, pursuit and effort really stands out with these two," Luginbill wrote. "They are so active and productive and are capable of crushing ball carriers or pass catchers with powerful explosion." In addition to their fine-tuned tackling prowess, the analyst noted, both Peppers and the 6-foot-1, 190-pound Okudah offer an astounding level of versatility in being able to shift positions depending on the needs of a particular scheme. Scout.com's Greg Powers has compared him to Eric Berry when Berry was coming out of high school.

Four-star 2017 DT Xach Gill hopes to visit UCLA, Stanford, LSU and Mississippi State over the summer.

Per Rivals' Adam Friedman, "It seems like UCLA, N.C. State, Mississippi State, North Carolina and Duke are doing the best job with Gill." The 6-foot-5, 270-pounder hails from Wake Forest, North Carolina, hence the heavy interest from that region of the country. He ranks as Rivals' No. 15 defensive tackle prospect for 2017.

Three-star 2017 QB Chase Cord is looking to make a commitment decision before the start of his senior season.

Cord hails from Peoria, Arizona, and his top schools exude a decidedly Western flare. "Favorites are Colorado, Boise State, Utah and SDSU. Utah is a big offer we’re definitely going to look into," Cord said. "They have been down a couple times and I've built a relationship with them over the past couple weeks." The 6-foot-3, 185-pounder ranks as Rivals' No. 25 pro-style quarterback prospect for 2017.

According to their federal tax return, the ACC saw an increase of over $100 million in revenue for the 2014-2015 fiscal year.

From 2013-2014, the ACC made $302.3 million, which climbed to $403.1 million the following year -- though it should be noted that $30 million of that came as part of a settlement when Maryland moved to the Big Ten. The SEC led all Power 5 conferences with $527.4 million in revenue.

Baylor four-star 2017 QB Kellen Mond is considering a visit to Auburn.

"Taking a visit to Auburn has been talked about but nothing is official yet," Mond told Rivals. The outlet spoke to him following the firing of Art Briles on Thursday. The 6-foot-3, 199-pounder indicated that while he has yet to make a decision regarding his Bears commitment, he understands the situation. "Not sure how it will affect my recruitment until I talk to my parents more in depth. But I definitely will open my eyes in looking for another school with a head coach being fired."

Rivals recruiting analyst Nick Krueger noted that Oklahoma four-star 2017 QB Chris Robison "bring more of a cavalier-style of play to the position and is a more outspoken personality than [four-star 2016 signee Austin Kendall]."

All talk of a 2017 quarterback competition at Oklahoma is premature until a proposed Big 12 transfer rule regarding walk-on in-conference transfers is determined. If it does take effect, then Baker Mayfield will have another year of eligibility and Robison, Kendall and former Aggie Kyler Murray will be taking backup roles barring injury. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Robison ranks as Rivals' No. 96 overall prospect for 2017 and their No. 6 pro-style quarterback.

Lawyers for both sides in the Title IX lawsuit filed against Tennessee said that they would be tentatively ready for trial by May 15, 2018.

This according to an initial case management order that was filed on Thursday. Both sides said that the trial would last 3-4 weeks. To this point, U.S. District Judge Aleta Trauger has yet to set a trial date. The lawsuit alleges that Tennessee forged a "hostile sexual environment" for female students and lists eight unnamed female plaintiffs.

Cal graduate QB Davis Webb enrolled at the university on Wednesday.

This was expected and completes Webb's somewhat awkward transfer from Texas Tech. He had been pledged to Colorado for much of the offseason before reversing course and joining Cal earlier this month. The 6-foot-5, 209-pounder threw for 5,557 yards (61.4% completions) with a 46/22 TD/INT ratio in 23 games with the Red Raiders. Pro Football Focus' Steve Palazzolo would like to see him improve his work against the zone as well as his speed in moving through progressions as he moves closer to the NFL.

Miami junior QB Brad Kaaya acknowledged that he "still [has] things to learn."

"I haven't arrived yet. I haven't hit my ceiling. I still think I have a ways to go and I can get better and make the team better," Kaaya said. He spoke highly of his relationship with new HC Mark Richt and talked about Richt's recent decision to donate $1 million toward the building of an indoor practice facility. "He just wants it to happen. He just has our best interest at heart. I appreciate it. The team certainly does, too."
