RB Creer expected at La. Tech this week

Posted by ESPN.com's Graham Watson
A couple notes as we head into the second half of the summer.

Former Tennessee running back Lennon Creer is expected to join Louisiana Tech this week.

There was some speculation that Creer, who transferred from Tennessee in April because of the coaching change, would join the Bulldogs in early June, but he is expected to enroll in the second semester of summer school.

Creer was the Vols' second-leading rusher in 2008 with 388 yards and four touchdowns. Per NCAA transfer rules, he'll sit out the 2009 season and still have two years of eligibility remaining.

Creer is the second player the Bulldogs have snagged from Tennessee. In June, sophomore wide receiver Ahmad Paige transferred to Louisiana Tech. He'll also miss the 2009 season and have two years of eligibility beginning in 2010.

Jarboe on track to play

Troy receiver Josh Jarboe, who was arrested in January after being charged with misdemeanor harassment, is on track to play in the fall.

Charges against Jarboe were dropped and he is currently listed as a second-team receiver.
