As summer camps get underway, there are almost always a few players missing, whether it's for academic reasons, suspensions, injuries, etc. I checked in with each school's sports information department for an attendance check on who will be missing this summer at each school. Overall, almost everyone seems to be in good shape, but there will be some key players out you already knew about. NC State appears to be missing the most as far as guys who have or would have been key contributors.
Here are the results:
BOSTON COLLEGE: Linebacker Mark Herzlich is out, along with linebacker Mike McLaughlin and fullback James McCluskey, both with Achilles.
CLEMSON: All present.
DUKE: Defensive tackle Kinney Rucker -- out due to injury.
FLORIDA STATE: Offensive lineman Aubrey Phillips transferred (rather loudly) to Auburn, outside linebacker C.J. Mizell won't be around and Willie Downs is headed to junior college. I'm told grades get posted next week, so this list could change.
GEORGIA TECH: Sophomore linebacker Kyle Jackson (foot injury)
MARYLAND: Two signees are heading to prep school: Lorne Goree and David Mackall.
MIAMI: All present.
NORTH CAROLINA: Prep school: Justin Dixon, D.J. Bunn, Johnnie Farms, J.R. Rhodes. Junior college: Ray-Ray Davis. Released from letter of intent: Angelo Hadley (arrested), Prizell Brown (junior college transfer, academics). Pending: Donavan Tate.
NC STATE: Jimmaul Simmons has left the team and school. Injured players who reported but will not compete in fall camp: Donald Bowens, Ryan Cheek, Nate Irving, Colby Jackson, Javon Walker.
VIRGINIA: Kevin Crawford (NT) and Rod Wheeler (TE) are no longer enrolled. OT Morgan Moses will enroll in prep school this fall.
VIRGINIA TECH: Kenny Lewis, Jr. is the only one who's still slowed by injury (Achilles) and will miss at least the first part of camp, if not more.
WAKE FOREST: All present.
