Georgia sophomore TE Ty Flournoy-Smith is transferring.
Former Miami (OH) WR Nick Harwell will transfer to Kansas.
Harwell was suspended from the team after being arrested, and he was not expected back this season. The fourth year senior was the school's best wide receiver, however, there were times where his hands were very inconsistent. Head coach Charlie Weis was optimistic that Harwell would be eligible for the 2013 season.
Houston senior RB Charles Sims will transfer, according to Rob Sellers of Rivals.
Sims is an extremely talented runner and was poised for a great final season, so this news comes as a surprise. He led Houston with 851 rushing yards and 11 rushing touchdowns to go along with 37 receptions for 373 yards and three touchdowns. Sims will certainly have plenty of options in terms of landing spots. He has already graduated, so Sims will be eligible to play in 2013.
Kent State senior RB/WR Dri Archer clocked an electronically timed 4.29 forty.
He checked in at No. 7 on CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman's "Freak List," with only two receivers or running backs listed ahead of him. "Despite his diminutive frame, Archer still ran for 1,429 yards and 16 TDs, with a 9-yard average per carry," Feldman writes. "In eight games Archer had at least one run of 43 yards or longer."
USC has moved sophomore Max Tuerk from LT to C.
"It was a little overwhelming in the beginning," Tuerk revealed, "but the more repetitions and the coaching I've gotten has really helped a lot. His main competition for the starting job is Marcus Martin, who is also listed as the school's left guard. Aundrey Walker is expected to claim the left tackle spot.
CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman writes "there's a good chance" USC junior WR Marqise Lee will see snaps on defense this season.
There was talk of Lee attempting to convince coaches to allow him to play some cornerback last season. The vertical receiver ranks No. 5 on Feldman's "Freak List." USC receiver coach Tee Martin added "He's gotta be in the top five of the most freakish athletes I've ever been around."
Michigan State freshman QB Damion Terry could push senior QB Andrew Maxwell for playing time this season.
"I think he's what we're evolving to a little bit quarterback-wise is guys who are a little bit more athletic or (have) ability to move in space, those kind of things," quarterbacks coach Brad Salem said. "I think he's a pretty special player." Maxwell certainly didn't show enough last season to secure the starting job moving forward.
After lining up at CB during spring activities, Alabama redshirt sophomore Dee Hart will likely stay at RB.
That assumption is from beat writer Andrew Gribble. The team is relatively young at both spots, but Hart's biggest concern should be his health. He missed the past two seasons due to major knee injuries.
