Virginia Tech running back Josh Oglesby always wanted to be the Hokies' No. 1 tailback, but not at the expense of his teammate, Darren Evans.

Cline Beam has been one of the surprises of Wake Forest's summer camp, and that's good, because the Deacs need a kicker.

BC's quarterback situation is still evolving.

NC State tailback Toney Baker is starting to show that explosiveness he had when he last played in 2007.

Virginia defensive line coach Chad Wilt isn't an entirely new face on the staff this fall, as he was a GA in 2004 and 2005, but now Wilt is in a position to create a "generational legacy" with the line.

Miami had a closed scrimmage on Saturday, and coach Randy Shannon spoke about it for the first time on Monday. Save for the backup quarterbacks, it sounds like it went mostly well.

Donavan Tate's deal with the Padres is reportedly worth $6.25 million. UNC knew there was a strong possibility of the quarterback choosing baseball. And for that amount of cash, who wouldn't?

FSU's recruiting class of 2007 -- or what's left of it -- isn't pretty.

Chad Wilt, a former Virginia graduate assistant coach, has been named the team's defensive line coach, the school announced Friday. Wilt had previously worked for Groh as a graduate assistant during the 2004 and 2005 seasons.

Wilt comes to Virginia after spending the past four seasons at Liberty University coaching the defensive line and special teams under Danny Rocco, a former UVa assistant coach.

"Chad has a solid background in our philosophy and schemes having spent two seasons with us and three with Dan Rocco," coach Al Groh said. "He knows us very well, and we know Chad and look forward to the energy and style that he will bring to our program. Our players will appreciate his commitment and expertise."
