Our recruiting gurus also reranked the recruiting classes of 2009. Miami was replaced by Florida at No. 7, but FSU held steady at No. 8. ESPN.com's Corey Dowlar took a closer look at the Seminoles' Class of 2009.
“Bryce has decided to leave the team, but will remain in school with plans to graduate this summer,” coach Dabo Swinney said in a prepared statement. “He plans to attend another school and play football in 2012. Graduating in three years will be quite an accomplishment.
“Bryce has been a fine representative of the Clemson program and we hoped he would remain with the team. But, he wants to fully concentrate on his studies so he can graduate this summer. We wish him the best and will help him any way we can.”
McNeal did not play against Florida State last weekend because of "personal reasons." He played in 12 of the 13 games last season as a redshirt freshman and started three games. He had 19 receptions for 187 yards in 2010.

- Jimmy Newman made all four of his field goal attempts during the scrimmage and three extra points. Freshman Chad Hedlund was successful on four PATs.
Coach Frank Spaziani told reporters after the 70-minute scrimmage that there were some good things, but "it's like a jigsaw puzzle with all the pieces in the box; they're not connected yet."
- Quarterback Chase Rettig completed 12 of 19 passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns. “I think Chase showed the progress he's been making,” Spaziani said. “The obvious things were fine; there were some subtle things he needs to work on.”
- Rettig connected on passes of 10 yards six times, including a 30-yard pass to Colin Larmond, Jr., a 24-yard touchdown pass down the middle of the field to receiver Bobby Swigert and a 3-yard touchdown pass to senior captain Ifeanyi Momah.
- Larmond (3 receptions for 53 yards), Swigert (3-for-33), junior receiver Donte Elliott (3-for-37) and redshirt freshman tight end Jarrett Darmstatter (3-for-16) led a total of 12 receivers that registered at least one reception each.

Quarterback Tajh Boyd had an impressive performance, as he completed 10 of 12 passes for 168 yards and a touchdown to highlight the new offense in Clemson’s 75-play scrimmage in Memorial Stadium on Saturday morning.
- Boyd completed each of his final eight passes to six different receivers. He threw a 44-yard touchdown pass to receiver DeAndre Hopkins, then connected on a 3-yard score to Dwayne Allen in a goal-line situation.

- Three Tigers missed the scrimmage because they were going through graduation exercises across the street from Memorial Stadium in Littlejohn Coliseum. Starting offensive tackle Landon Walker, starting safety Rashard Hall and reserve defensive end Kourtnei Brown all graduated from Clemson on Saturday. It was especially noteworthy for Hall, who has been at Clemson just three years. He joins Nick Eason (now in the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals) as the only scholarship football players to graduate with two years of athletic eligibility remaining.
- Four players missed the scrimmage due to injury. Those players were defensive back Xavier Brewer (sprained foot), defensive back Garry Peters (bruised calf), Andre Branch (head injury), DeShawn Williams (sprained ankle).
Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson had mixed reviews after the Yellow Jackets' first scrimmage, which ran 90 minutes inside Bobby Dodd Stadium on Saturday morning.
"It was like a lot of first scrimmages, there were way too many balls on the ground and way too many penalties," Johnson said. "But we hit some big plays. When you play against each other there's positives and negatives on both sides. It's a starting place and we'll look at it and try to make some improvements."
- While no official statistics were kept, quarterback Tevin Washington passed for well over 100 yards, including a 63-yarder to senior A-back Roddy Jones. Redshirt freshman quarterback Synjyn Days threw the only touchdown of the day, to true freshman Jeff Greene.
- Greene ran with the first unit Saturday as most of the veterans -- junior Stephen Hill, senior Tyler Melton, sophomore Jeremy Moore and junior Daniel McKayhan -- all sat out with injuries.
- Washington scored the only other touchdown Saturday on a 1-yard QB keeper.
- Defensive end Emmanuel Dieke had a sack, true freshman Jamal Golden intercepted a Vad Lee pass, and Steven Sylvester and Isaiah Johnson both recovered fumbles.
- Sophomore Justin Moore booted a 45-yard field goal on his only attempt.
- David Scully's 52-yard attempt was long enough, but just wide left.
The most important news out of Miami's first scrimmage was that quarterbacks Jacory Harris and Stephen Morris combined for five touchdown passes and only one interception. That sounds like improvement. Miami's quarterbacks combined for 407 passing yards on 38-of-52 passing for six touchdowns and only one interception.
- Receiver Tommy Streeter had the best offensive day for the Canes, catching five passes for 71 yards and three touchdowns, two of which came from Harris.
- Lamar Miller had runs of 16 and 31 yards on the opening drive.
- Senior defensive back JoJo Nicolas led all defenders with eight tackles (six solo), with two tackles for loss.
- Ramon Buchanan and freshman Gionni Paul and each had six total tackles, with Paul also recording a tackle for loss.
- The defense totaled eight tackles behind the line of scrimmage for a total loss of 29 yards
The Hokies' offense was the highlight, but what does that mean for the defense? Coach Frank Beamer pointed out that there were some long plays allowed, as the offense racked up 398 yards of total offense in the 78-play scrimmage at Lane Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The touchdowns came against Tech's second- or third-team defense, though, so the jury is still out.
"I thought it was a good first scrimmage -- better than most," Beamer said, according to the team's scrimmage report. "You take into consideration that you're trying to get everyone some work, people who don't know quite what they're doing, and that makes things a little ragged. I thought overall, though, it was a sharp scrimmage. The quarterbacks made some nice plays and Wilson got a couple of long plays against the defense, and we need to see what's going on there. Overall, the effort was good and the play was good."
- Backup quarterback Mark Leal led the quarterbacks with 116 yards passing, completing 6 of 13. He also threw an interception. Beamer said Leal is No. 2 on the depth chart behind Logan Thomas. Ju-Ju Clayton, who has dropped to No. 3 on the depth chart, completed 6 of 10 for 51 yards, while starter Thomas completed 4 of 8 for 79 yards, with an interception, in limited action.
- Tailback David Wilson scored against the Hokies' second-team defense on a 22-yard run. Wilson led all rushers with 57 yards on five carries. Freshman Michael Holmes added 54 yards rushing on a game-high 11 carries.
- Freshman tackle Luther Maddy led the team with eight tackles, including two for a loss, and a sack. Freshman Michael Cole added six tackles, while Telvion Clark and Jack Tyler each finished with four.
- Barquell Rivers had three tackles and an interception.
- Jayron Hosley and freshman Ronny Vandyke also had interceptions. Hosley intercepted a Logan Thomas pass, while Vandyke intercepted a Trey Gresh attempt.
- The kickers connected on 5-of-6 attempts. Cody Journell hit from 35, 22 and 35 yards, while Justin Myer drilled a 52-yarder and a 28-yarder. "Cody's kicking extremely well," Beamer said. "Myer has a load of potential, and he needs to win some of the kicking contests during the week. That shows consistency, and that's where he is right now. Cody is usually winning it or right in the running at the end."
- Here are five things to watch as Maryland begins spring practices today.
- Virginia Tech's staff changes were expensive, but are being viewed as an investment for the athletic department's cash cow.
- Clemson is still waiting for receiver Bryce McNeal to make an impact, and time is running out, as the position is getting crowded.
- Sorry, Loyola, there's only one Wolfpack.
- Miami coach Al Golden wants to make sure more than one running back sees the field this year.
- Duke backup quarterback Brandon Connette could continue to add additional elements to the Blue Devils' offense this year with his ability to run.
- Virginia Tech will be missing three players when it starts spring practices on Wednesday.
- Miami receiver Tommy Streeter has been one of the most improved players on the Canes' spring roster.

If there’s a lesson to be learned, it’s that the season doesn’t end in October.
Time is running out, though, for both Clemson and North Carolina to make a move forward in the ACC standings. Both programs are looking for their first league win on Saturday when UNC hosts Clemson. The difference is that Clemson is looking to rebound from back-to-back losses while North Carolina has started to make a turnaround with two straight nonconference wins.
“We haven’t laid an egg this year,” coach Dabo Swinney said. “This team hasn’t done that. We just have some self-inflicted wounds. All we have to do is control the things we can control. We don’t have to play perfect, don’t have to be supermen; we just have to do our jobs.
“The playmakers need to perform their roles. We’ve lost two tough games to good teams. We’ve had chances to win. We need to control what we can control. They can draw from the experience of last year where we didn’t get off to a good start and then won the division. The only thing that’s off the table now is winning a national championship.”
The same can be said for North Carolina, which had high hopes entering this season only to be derailed by the ongoing NCAA investigation which sidelined 12 players for the season opener against LSU. The Tar Heels have since climbed out of an 0-2 start and won back-to-back games against Rutgers and East Carolina.
“Through the first four games I am very proud of the way our kids have handled the off the field distractions and missing some of their teammates,” coach Butch Davis said. “Our kids have shown a lot of resiliency. I think as a football team we have worked each week to improve and there are some areas where we are getting better.”
It’s the first time these two programs have met since 2006, and it will be the first time Davis has coached against the Tigers in his 36-year career. Davis said Clemson is the “most talented and complete team” they’ve played the entire season.
The Tigers do have the ACC’s leading rusher in Andre Ellington, but are still searching for dependable wide receivers. Swinney made a change this week and replaced his veterans with younger players.
“The four guys you’ll see are Nuke Hopkins, Bryce McNeal, Jaron Brown, and Marquan Jones,” Swinney said. “Those are the core guys right now. The other guys will play some, but the majority will go to those four guys. We’ve hoped that the receiving core would play out by now. Guys earn opportunities. Even where we are right now, nothing’s final. Guys have to go play. We have to create opportunities for certain guys based on what we’ve seen, but guys have to play well.”
Especially considering UNC will have both of its starting safeties -- Deunta Williams and Da'Norris Searcy -- back in the lineup after serving suspensions. The Tar Heels are still missing 10 players due to the NCAA investigations, including four defensive starters.
The Tigers worked out in helmets and shorts in comfortable weather for two hours and 30 minutes on the practice fields behind the Jervey Athletic Center.
It was the first of 29 allowed preseason practices for the Tigers, who open the season at home against North Texas on Sept. 4. Clemson will work once a day Tuesday through Saturday this week.
The only player who missed practice due to injury was junior guard Wilson Norris, who suffered a torn ACL in spring practice last March. He will be out until at least November.
Two players missed the practice to take a summer school exam, starting tackle Landon Walker and wide receiver Brandon Clear.
“I saw a lot of progress since we last practiced in April,” said coach Dabo Swinney, according to the team's practice report. “You could see they worked hard on their own over the summer. If you are going to be a good team you have to make progress between the end of spring practice and the start of fall practice.
“I could see that in players like Tajh Boyd. You could see from what he did today that he has made progress. The game has slowed down for him thanks to the work he put in over the summer. I saw that from a lot of veteran players today.”
Swinney was also impressed from what he saw from quarterback Kyle Parker. Clemson’s returning starter at quarterback has not thrown many footballs since the end of spring practice, as he helped the Tigers baseball team to the Final Four of the College World Series. The first-round draft pick of the Colorado Rockies announced he would return to Clemson to play football for the Tigers on July 21. He still may sign with the Rockies, but will play for the Tiger football team in the fall.
“He amazes me at what he does from a mental standpoint. He made some typical 'KP' throws that make you smile. He did show some rust, but he had an outstanding day.
“It was good to see how excited the other offensive and defensive players were to have him back. While he was not here this summer, they know he was not off sipping cocktails on an island. They say him play for our baseball team on TV, working hard for that team. He went straight from the bowl game to the batting cage without a break. You could see he was refreshed today and ready to play some football.”
Swinney was also impressed by what he saw from the 19 freshmen who were at their first Clemson practice.
“It is an impressive group. They are in good physical condition and will make a contribution as a group this year. It is just the first practice so it is too early to single anyone out, but overall I was impressed.”
Many players worked in the return game at the beginning of practice. The Tigers are looking for replacements for C.J. Spiller and Jacoby Ford in the return game. That duo became the greatest all-purpose duo in NCAA history over the last four years. Marcus Gilchrist, Jaron Brown, Bryce McNeal and some others worked as kick returners during that part of practice.
Swinney said after practice that Tyler Fowler, a walk-on offensive lineman from Canon, Ga., was given a scholarship for this fall.

Here are the reports that came in from Wednesday's practices around the league, as reported by each school's sports information office:
Clemson had its second day of two-a-day practices on Wednesday. The Tigers worked for two hours and 15 minutes in the morning and for an hour and a half in the evening.
Much of the day was spent reviewing the film from Tuesday's scrimmage and correcting mistakes. Coach Dabo Swinney felt better about his team after watching the film on Tuesday afternoon and evening.
"We played better than I thought," said Swinney. "I was very disappointed with the penalties [on offense] and a lack of attention to detail immediately after the scrimmage. And I still feel that way about those mistakes. But after watching the film we played better overall than I thought."
Swinney was impressed with the performance of his defense after the scrimmage on Tuesday and he was still happy with that performance on Wednesday.
"We have a chance to be pretty salty on defense. I look out there and really can't tell the difference between the units. I was talking to Jamie Cumbie yesterday and he said it doesn't make any difference who starts, they are just waiting to have their name called.
"There is great depth on the defensive front and the secondary. The linebackers are doing well also. I was really impressed with Kavell Conner's performance on Tuesday. He has had a terrific preseason."

Here are a few excerpts from Clemson's second practice, as reported by the sports information office:
Clemson is in the five-day NCAA mandated acclimatization period. The Tigers will have practice each evening on Thursday through Saturday, then take Sunday off. Monday morning's practice will be the first in full pads. Clemson will practice twice that day, the first of four two-a-day practices during the pre-school schedule.
"It was a good day of practice," said coach Dabo Swinney. "I told the team that this was how championship teams practice. There was energy like there was the first day, but they played smarter today."
Swinney mentioned a few of his players in his postgame meeting with the media.
"Ricky Sapp looked like Ricky Sapp today and I am anxious to see him with the full pads on this coming Monday," Swinney said. "I was very impressed with Rendrick Taylor. He caught the ball out of the backfield, and from tight end, and ran very well, also.
"Byron Maxwell worked hard all summer. He worked out twice a day and I am proud of what he has done these first two days. Kevin Alexander also looked good at defensive end."
Jacoby Ford [hamstring] and J.K. Jay were both in yellow jerseys and missed the practice. Ford suffered the injury while fielding punts in Tuesday's first practice. Jay has a back injury.
"Today was the last day of summer school finals so we get them for all football now until Aug. 19."
