Virginia Tech announced receiver Damon Hazelton has officially enrolled at school, but must sit out 2017 because of NCAA transfer rules. He still helps bolster a Virginia Tech receiver group that has question marks for this season and beyond. Cam Phillips, a rising senior, is the only receiver back who contributed in a significant way a year ago. If Hazelton meets his potential, he's in line for a big role in 2018.

Miami offensive tackle Sunny Odogwu is leaving the program, leaving the Hurricanes without one of their more experienced linemen for 2017. Odogwu started 14 games over three seasons, but missed most of last year with a leg injury and was limited during spring practice. He told coach Mark Richt he feels he will have a better opportunity at playing time at another school. Odogwu has already graduated, so he will have a chance to play right away at his next destination.

Alabama lost a commitment from ESPN 300 running back Dameon Pierce on Thursday. That decommitment brings the Alabama commitment total down to two prospects for the 2018 class with Xavier Williams and Jordan Davis. This is the first time since ESPN started its class rankings in the spring that Alabama is outside the top 11 of the rankings as the Tide aren't even in the top 25 for 2018.

ACC commissioner John Swofford was asked about SEC commissioner Greg Sankey refusing to recuse himself from the ongoing investigation into North Carolina. Sankey serves as chair of the committee on infractions. "The peer aspect of that whole process, that's what it's been for a long, long time," Swofford said. "I can remember when Paul Dee, the former AD at Miami, Paul was the chair of the committee when Miami joined our league and I can remember having conversations with him about how uncomfortable that was at times, so it's not any different now than it's been. Whether that should be changed in some way has been under discussion for a while, multiple years and so until someone comes up with a better way to approach that kind of situation, we'll see. I doubt that's imminent, but there are discussions about the process and what is the best process to have. My biggest complaint has consistently been how long these kinds of things take sometimes, and unfortunately we've had several that have fallen into not as long as this one, but still lengthy because it would help a great deal all the way around if we could come up with a process that brought things to a culmination more quickly."

ACC commissioner John Swofford said he expects the revenue gap between his conference and the Big Ten and SEC to close once the ACC Network launches in 2019. "That's why we're doing the channel," Swofford said. "We fully expect a gap with particularly the Big Ten and SEC here for a couple of years but that's the very reason we've signed to do what we're doing. We fully expect that gap will narrow considerably when we get the channel up and running."

ACC commissioner John Swofford said what struck him during the relatively quiet spring meetings was "a sense of normalcy that hasn't been there in a decade or so."

ACC commissioner John Swofford said the league has complete assurances from ESPN that everything is "full blast" and completely on schedule for the launch of the linear ACC Network in 2019.

Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson called changes to the recruiting calendar "crazy" multiple times, pointing out the unintended consequences on current student-athletes. "If you host a recruit while you're in spring practice, you have to have a day off," Johnson said. "You're going to have to come in and lift or do something on that day and you're going to have to take your day off on a Tuesday, when all your other teammates are lifting. So when they find that out, wait a minute I've got to come back on Saturday and lift because this is my day off and it counts when I'm hosting? It's crazy. Who's going to host in June when they get a little break?"

North Carolina coach Larry Fedora said he would trade the addition of a 10th assistant coach to get the new changes to the recruiting calendar undone. ACC coaches unanimously expressed frustration with the new rules, including spring official visits and a December signing date. "It's almost like they were dangling that and said, 'OK if you want this, you've got to take all this other stuff,'" Fedora said. "Kind of like the way our government works. Isn't that the way that works? Let's stuff some things in there, whether you want it or not, and if you want these things, you're going to have to take this."

A former Baylor volleyball player who said she was gang raped by at least four and as many as eight football players on Feb. 11, 2012 filed a federal Title IX lawsuit against the university on Wednesday morning. In the complaint, the woman's attorneys allege she was drugged by football players during an off-campus party. The lawsuit said the woman "remembers one football player picking her up, putting her in his vehicle, and taking her somewhere. It was there that at least four Baylor football players brutally gang raped Plaintiff." "Plaintiff remembers lying on her back, unable to move and staring at glow-in-the-dark stars on the ceiling as the football players took turns raping her," the lawsuit says.

Allow redshirt freshmen to play in bowl games? Why not? Clemson coach Dabo Swinney and ACC coaches are in favor of revamping the rules to make it happen. "From an overall player welfare standpoint, the length of the season, the maturity and development of guys," Swinney said. "I think guys would be much more engaged when they're redshirted. I don't see a negative at all. All the coaches love it."

Florida State defensive back Trey Marshall must sit out the first half of the season opener against Alabama because he was ejected for targeting against Michigan in the fourth quarter in the Capital One Orange Bowl. Coach Jimbo Fisher said ACC coaches are in favor of revising that rule so the punishment doesn't carry over into the following season. "I think that's crazy," Fisher said. "You get those red cards in soccer, they don't follow you from year to year."

Though the majority of ACC football coaches have been in favor of an early signing period, they wanted the date much earlier than December. So there are mixed feelings about the Dec. 20-22 period that was recently approved. "I always wanted it earlier to take a lot of pressure off kids and coaches," Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said from the ACC spring meetings. "You're talking about getting ready for a bowl game and a playoff game and you're practicing all day, you're flying all night getting back at 2 in the morning, getting up at 6 in the morning, and going. You're going to be doing that for 2 1/2 , three weeks. … It's something I don't agree with but it is here to stay at least for another two years until they evaluate the process."

ESPN 300 linebacker Dallas Gant has committed to Ohio State. Gant, the No. 224 ranked prospect, chose the Buckeyes over Notre Dame, Michigan and Michigan State. Despite growing up a fan of the Spartans and having a father who grew up a Michigan fan, the Toledo prospect believes he is in good hands at Ohio State. "They have great coaches down there, they're a great football program, great people," Gant said. "They know how to win and get their players to be successful, whether that's in the NFL or jobs after football." Gant's commitment gives the Buckeyes 10 commitments in the 2018 class, all ranking in the ESPN 300.
