A look at what's shaking around the SEC:
- Vanderbilt's Mackenzi Adams is accustomed to being in the middle of a quarterback battle. He finds himself in one again entering the start of preseason camp.
- Ole Miss defensive back signee Darius "Tig" Barksdale was arrested early Thursday morning on a DUI charge, David Brandt of The Jackson Clarion-Ledger reports. Barksdale is still waiting to be cleared academically.
- Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy is ready to take his shot after an impressive showing at the Manning Passing Academy this summer.
- There's nothing plush or fancy about preseason camp for Kentucky, which opens practice Friday.
- Arkansas opens preseason camp with what may be the deepest running back stable in the SEC.
- Florida freshman Andre Debose is talented, elusive and explosive -- all the things Percy Harvin was. Just don't compare Debose to Harvin.
- Auburn hopes its freshman receivers are ready to go to start the season. DeAngelo Benton, Emory Blake and Travante Stallworth all figure to play early.
