Former Wake Forest RB Josh Harris blamed his college coaches for going undrafted last weekend.

Harris appeared to be a star in the making as a freshman in 2010, but his career thereafter was mired by injuries. He was considered a fringe Day 3 prospect heading into the draft, and only Harris himself seemed surprised when his name wasn't called. Harris cited "slanderous remarks" and "false allegations" being fed to the NFL by the WFU coaching staff. Harris tweeted out a text message on Tuesday he had received from former OC Steed Lobotzke, who vouched for the player's character.

Ravens selected Wake Forest WR Michael Campanaro with the No. 218 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Campanaro (5-foot-9 3/8, 192) set Wake Forest's all-time record for receptions (229) despite missing four games as a senior with a fractured collarbone. He finished his career with a 10.9 YPR average and 14 touchdowns, bringing back a punt for a 15th score. Campanaro will be limited to slot receiver in the pros, but showed excellent athleticism at the Combine with a 4.46 forty, 39-inch vertical, and 10-foot-2 broad jump. Although Campanaro's ceiling is capped, he could certainly make some NFL noise as a third receiver and return option.

Wake Forest NT Nikita Whitlock, who may switch to FB at the next level, "caught the ball well in rough conditions" at the school's pro day, according to NFL.com's Gil Brandt.

Whitlock (5-foot-9 3/4, 251 pounds) recorded an amazing 43 bench press at the event, adding 4.82 and 4.86 second forties, a 33-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot broad jump, a 4.34 second short shuttle, and a 6.91 second three-cone. "Whitlock’s pro-day numbers will have NFL teams considering a position change," wrote Brandt. "A team could bring him into training camp and make a fullback out of him. ... He will be an interesting experiment for a team signing him as a priority free agent following the 2014 NFL Draft." The Patriots, for one, have already worked out Whitlock as a FB. He could also be auditioned as a LB.

The Patriots are working out undersized Wake Forest NT Nikita Whitlock at FB.

Whitlock will have to play a different position in the NFL than he did in college, but the 5'11/260 pound defensive lineman is a very good athlete with solid hand use and excellent strength. Fullback and linebacker are the two likeliest landing spots.

Wake Forest NT Nikita Whitlock recorded 43 bench press reps at the school's pro day.

Whitlock checks in around 5'11/260 pounds, so he is uncharacteristically tiny for the anchor defensive line spot. He does use leverage and strength well, however, but will likely transition to a different position in the NFL, possibly fullback or linebacker.

Bowling Green coach Dave Clawson has agreed to become the next head coach at Wake Forest, according to Sports Illustrated.

Clawson was interviewed on Sunday and offered the job 24 hours later. He steps in for Jim Grobe, who resigned after five consecutive losing seasons. Clawson was attractive to the Demon Deacons because he turned around academically-oriented programs at Fordham and Richmond. Clawson's Falcons are 10-3 heading into bowl season.

Wake Forest has offered Bowling Green coach Dave Clawson its head job, reports CBS Sports.

Wake Forest officials interviewed Clawson on Sunday. Demon Deacons athletic director Ron Wellman attended Bowling Green's 47-27 blowout win in the MAC title game over Northern Illinois. Clawson led the Falcons to a 10-3 start in 2013. Ball State coach Pete Lembo was a finalist for the job.

Wake Forest head coach Jim Grobe resigned on Monday.

Grobe spent 13 seasons as Wake Forest's head coach and is universally liked in the college football world. He led the Demon Deacons to the Orange Bowl and an ACC title win. He previously coached at Ohio. Wake Forest finished 4-8 this season.

Wake Forest senior WR Michael Campanaro suffered a broken collarbone against Syracuse and will miss at least one month.

Campanaro could miss up to six weeks. The senior hasn't been able to stay healthy throughout his career, but he flashes talent when on the field. The Demon Deacons receiver leads the team with 65 catches for 792 receiving yards. Campanaro has also caught six of the school's 13 touchdowns this season.

Wake Forest senior WR Michael Campanaro has been ruled out for the remainder of the game against Syracuse with a shoulder injury.

Campanaro recorded two catches for 11 yards prior to leaving. He is the Demon Deacons' top offensive threat, and they have struggled to score points without him. Campanaro has a fairly extensive injury history.

Wake Forest senior WR Michael Campanaro will play against Boston College on Friday despite a hamstring injury.

Campanaro missed time last season with a broken hand and has a longer injury history on top of that. When available he is the Demon Deacons' top offensive prospect. Be sure to watch linebacker Justin Jackson on defense, however.

Wake Forest senior FS Duran Lowe has been dismissed from the team due to a violation of team rules.

Lowe isn't a pivotal part of the Demon Decons' defense, making 91 tackles in 31 career games. He only played in six games, making one start, in 2012. No further details have been released on the dismissal.

The NCAA awarded Wake Forest senior RB Josh Harris an extra season of eligibility.

Harris was previously ruled ineligible for the 2013 season, but the NCAA appears to have had a change of heart. Wake Forest did not previously comment as to whether Harris' ineligibility was related to academics or injuries, but the latter was expected since the running back has dealt with his share of leg injuries and concussion-like symptoms.

Wake Forest senior RB Josh Harris has been ruled ineligible for the 2013 season.

The school asked the NCAA for a waiver to restore at least one more season of eligibility, but the request was not granted. The school could not comment on whether Harris' ineligibility was related to academics or injuries, but we expect the latter. The running back was forced to stay on the sideline for long stretches of game action in 2012 due to multiple leg injuries, as well as concussion-like symptoms.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler ranks senior WR Michael Camapanaro as Wake Forest's top prospect.

"He isn't the biggest or the fastest, but Campanaro wins with his savvy routes and natural hands, setting up his moves well at all levels of the field to catch defenders off balance and create space with his short-area quickness," Brugler says of the senior receiver. Campanaro is used in a variety of ways but likely projects to an inside spot at the NFL level.
