Miami redshirt sophomore OL Tyler Grimsley will transfer.

Grimsley recently asked for a release from his scholarship. On Monday, the Hurricanes were kind enough to oblige. The 6-foot-3, 300-pound Grimsley was outside the two-deep on the depth chart exiting the spring, a dismaying development for a player who had never seen the field.

Three-star 2017 WR Emeka Emezie will take part in a camp at Virginia Tech this summer.

While the Hokies will be looking to reel in Emezie later this summer, he has also seen recent offers from Kansas, Marshall and NC State. Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman noted that another trio of schools -- Miami, Kentucky and West Virginia -- intrigues the 6-foot-3, 190-pounder. Per Friedman, Emezie has been talking with multiple coaches from those programs. He ranks as Rivals' No. 58 wide receiving prospect for the 2017 cycle.

Transferring TCU graduate WR Zach Allen indicated that he is willing to move to any school.

"I'm open to look all over the country. I'm just looking for a place that is willing to take a chance on someone," Allen said. The 6-foot-3, 22-pounder told FOX Sports that he has been receiving strong interest since declaring his future transfer earlier this week and that he has received offers from both FCS and FBS schools (though he wouldn't offer exact details as to which schools are considering him). He is working on a tape for interested programs, one which showcases his passing abilities. Allen switched from quarterback to receiver last spring, but saw little on-field action from the position during TCU's 2015 season. Thus, the passing tape. "I know I don't have much of a resume, so I hope it will help sell me," Allen said.

Scout.com national recruiting analyst Brandon Hoffman noted that Alabama five-star 2017 RB Najee Harris "shines all around; catching the ball, running with the ball, you name it."

Alabama currently has Harris in their recruiting net, but this is not yet a slam dunk. Per Hoffman, "Ohio State, UCLA and Washington continue to make a push for him." Harris, himself, said in March that he is "still open to everybody" and that "anything can happen." The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder from Antioch, California, ranks as ESPN 300's No. 4 prospect for the 2017 cycle, noting that he is a "big, powerful runner with exceptional body control that has the sneaky burst and long speed to make big plays."

Three-star 2017 WR Corey Reed counts Louisville and Miami as the leaders in the clubhouse for his commitment.

In addition to Louisville and Miami, Reed plans on visiting Tennessee, Maryland and Wake Forest before the days of summer have gone. Per Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman, the 6-foot-3, 200-pounder "really wants an offer from Tennessee and he’s been talking to the coaches for a while." Reed ranks as Rivals' No. 80 cornerback prospect for 2017.

Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman wrote that four-star 2017 CB Tre Shaw "feels like South Carolina and North Carolina are the two schools recruiting him the hardest."

Shaw took visits to both the Gamecocks and Tar Heels in the spring. The 5-foot-11, 178-pounder plans on looping back to North Carolina later this summer, as he will be attending their Freak Show summer camp. Friedman notes that Shaw has also recently received an offer from Clemson that caused his ears to perk up. ESPN 300 ranks the Ellenwood, Georgia, native as their No. 272 overall prospect for 2017, calling him "an impressive overall athlete with a versatile skill-set as a defensive back."

Pittsburgh redshirt junior RB James Conner (Hodgkins lymphoma) tweeted that he is free of cancer.

"God is AMAZING. Just got the call that my body is clean of cancer!!! Been a long road but God had my back. Thanks everyone who said prayers!" Conner wrote. He was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma shortly after tearing his right MCL against Youngstown State in the first week of the 2015 season. A week into May, he completed his 12 sessions of chemotherapy. And now the happy news that the cancer has been vanquished. Our sincere hope is that the 6-foot-2, 250-pounder can slide right back into his terrifying 2014 ways. In that season, he rushed for 1,765 yards and 26 touchdowns. The team figures to monitor his health closely in August camp and might try to ease him back into the flow of the game once we hit the 2016 regular season, but he is expected -- barring any health setbacks -- to be ready for the Week 1 opener against Villanova.

Arkansas redshirt junior QB Austin Allen completed 13-of-19 passes for 141 yards in the program's spring game.

Allen entered the game having already been named the starter for 2016, making his spring statistical line even less meaningful than it otherwise would have been. HC Bret Bielema said earlier this offseason that the Razorback team has "a certain amount of trust and faith" in the 6-foot-1, 216-pounder. He is the younger brother of 2015 starting gunslinger Brandon Allen.

FSU HC Jimbo Fisher told the Palm Beach Post that the possibility of coaching in the NFL is "not something that drives me."

"I love college and I had opportunities to go to pro football as an assistant coach and as a coordinator and I’ve had inquiries as a head coach," Fisher said. We don't blame him for feeling comfortable in his situation. During his six seasons at the helm of the Seminoles, he has won three ACC titles, a national championship and holds an .829 winning-percentage. "I'd love to be here forever and ever," he said. The 50-year-old wouldn't completely rule out taking a potential NFL coaching job in the future, but indicated that it would need to come at the right time and in the right situation if he were to seriously consider it.

Boston College redshirt sophomore WR Troy Flutie has been suspended following his Saturday morning arrest for operating under the influence of alcohol.

Flutie -- the nephew of former BC QB Doug Flutie -- was arrested at 1:00 a.m. on Saturday morning after he hit a curb while driving. Per the Metrowest Daily News, the 6-foot, 182-pounder was arrested for "OUI, possession of an open container of liquor while driving, being a person under-21 in possession of liquor, and marked lanes violations." Boston College put out a statement following that messiness, saying, "Troy has been suspended from the football team by Coach Steve Addazio pending further investigation and faces the possibility of additional University sanctions pending the outcome of the court proceedings." He is set for arraignment Monday.

Kansas State HC Bill Snyder indicated that he is not ready to name a starting quarterback for 2016

"About the time it looks like one of them is starting to inch ahead, then all of a sudden somebody else steps up and makes some plays and does some things, and has a great practice," Snyder said. All three of his quarterbacks (redshirt sophomore Jesse Ertz, redshirt freshman Alex Delton and senior Joe Hubener) performed well in the team's spring game. Hubener led the way in completing 21-of-25 passes for 319 yards and two touchdowns while Ertz -- who was named team captain over the spring -- completed 12-of-18 passes for 124 yards and a touchdown. For his part, Delton wasn't quite as accurate (13-of-21 passing), but finished with 139 yards through the air. Ertz likely has the edge here. He suffered a serious knee injury in Week 1 last season and subsequently missed the entire 2015 campaign, but looks to be completely healthy as we roll into summer.

According to Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman, four-star 2017 S Davondre Robinson could make his commitment in December.

Robinson is deciding between ten schools right now, with Notre Dame, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Clemson, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, NC State, Michigan and Alabama all making the cut. The 6-foot, 190-pounder will be visiting the Crimson Tide in early June. He hopes to add visits to Tennessee, Mississippi State and NC State before the close of summer. Rivals ranks Robinson as their No. 92 prospect for 2017. ESPN is less sunny in their projection, checking him into the 300 at No. 283. They view the Santee, South Carolina, native as quite raw at this stage of his development.

FSU sophomore WR Auden Tate caught six passes for 100 yards and a touchdown in the program's spring game.

The touchdown showed off both the athleticism of Tate and redshirt freshman QB Deondre Francois. The 6-foot-5, 218-pound Tate actually ran the wrong route on the play, but Francois still managed to adjust and hit him in the corner of the end zone for the score. "[Francois] was finding me places. I got open, and he found ways to put it there," Tate said. The Seminoles named Tate one of its most improved players this spring. Come the start of the season, the former four-star recruit will be looking to carve out a receiving niche alongside Travis Rudolph, Bobo Wilson and Kermit Whitfield.

LSU live tiger mascot Mike IV has been diagnosed with spindle cell sarcoma.

A CT scan revealed a tumor on the tiger's nose. After he underwent a biopsy, Mike IV was diagnosed with what the university is describing as "an extremely rare form of cancer." While there is no known cure, he will undergo stereotactic radiotherapy, which should help extend his life for another one or two years. Mike IV has been with LSU since the age of two, joining the program in 2008.
