  The Bobcats' First Team All-American linebacker, Troy Andersen, will redshirt the 2020 season due to a lower extremity injury. Andersen injured himself last season during the second half of the UC Davis game. He was originally scheduled to undergo surgery in February, but because of Covid-19, it didn't happen until early May. "I truly believe Troy is the best player in the FCS, and yes is it going to hurt for us to lose him? Yeah. Is it going to galvanize our team and put a bigger chip on our shoulder? You bet," Head Coach Jeff Choate said during a Zoom meeting with the media on Wednesday. The redshirt senior will finish his eligibility in 2021. - The Spokesman-Review

  06/03/20 - WR Demetric FeltonrSr/2021, UCLA, 5-09, 185 (DS#33 WR) + More +

  For the past two seasons, UCLA's leading choice at running back was a walk-on transfer. After putting up back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons, Joshua Kelley was selected in the fourth round by the Chargers in April's NFL draft. While it will be near impossible to replace the positivity and leadership Kelley brought to the program, the Bruins will need a new option on the field. Led by receiver-turned-running back Demetric Felton, UCLA will be looking for versatility. Felton will most likely carry the majority of the load this season.

As UCLA's second option last year behind Kelley, Felton set a program record with 55 receptions as a running back in his first season in the role. He also set a school record with four scoring plays of 75 yards or more while scoring three different ways for the Bruins. Without Kelley's speed, UCLA will be relying on the redshirt senior's versatility to create different scoring schemes. - Orange County Register

  06/03/20 - RB Tim JordanSr/2021, Tennessee, 5-11, 203 (DS#999 RB) + More +

  It is unclear what, if any, team discipline Tennessee running back Tim Jordan will face following his arrest on gun and marijuana charges in his home state of Florida. Coach Jeremy Pruitt has not commented on the situation. Jordan was arrested following a traffic stop in Lakeland, Florida, shortly before 5 a.m. Saturday. Police pulled over Jordan for speeding and swerving repeatedly into the bicycle lane, according to an arrest warrant.

Officers reported smelling cannabis. A search of the vehicle turned up a small bag containing about 9.25 grams of marijuana, as well as a scale and several small plastic bags, according to the warrant. Jordan told the officers he was carrying a handgun in his back pocket without a concealed carry permit, according to the warrant. The concealed carry charge Jordan faces is a third-degree felony in Florida, punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000. - Knoxville News Sentinel

  Syracuse football players will begin returning to campus for voluntary athletic activities on Monday, the school announced on Tuesday. Upon arriving in Central New York, an undisclosed number of athletes will immediately be tested for Covid-19 and isolated until they test negative for the virus. That period could last as long as 14 days, according to SU Athletics. Athletes will then begin working out in groups composed of no more than 10 people. Individuals are only allowed contact to people within their pod until phase two of training beings. Phase two is likely to be implemented in July, the school said, with 30-person groups being the next measure. All athletes must practice social distancing. Protective equipment, including face masks, will be used in all athletic facilities, while all shared equipment will be sanitized prior to and after each use by a player. - The Post-Standard

  06/03/20 - OLB Shaka ToneyrSr/2021, Penn State, 6-2, 243 (DS#7 OLB) + More +

  Shaka Toney earned second-team All-Big Ten honors while recording 6 1/2 sacks last season. That makes him the sack leader among Penn State's returning players. But that's only part of the reason junior defensive tackle P.J. Mustipher respects the Nittany Lions' fifth-year senior defensive end. The other part stems from a conditioning session last summer when Toney pushed Mustipher further than the younger player thought he could go. Mustipher, 6-foot-4, 305 pounds, was doing pull-ups one day when he decided to use elastic bands for assistance. "Doing pullups for bigger guys is difficult," Mustipher said. "Shaka walks over and says, 'You don't need the band. You can do that pull-up. I'm not going to allow you to do the pull-up with the band.'"

Mustipher wasn't sure he could do it, but all of a sudden, he did eight without the band. "That goes to show you he cares so much about who you are and wants to develop you," Mustipher said. "He's not always going to tell you what you want to hear. He's going to tell you what you need to hear. "He's been a leader of this team since I stepped on campus. He's always pointed me in the right direction. It's going to be some tough love with Shaka, but at the end of the day, he's going to have your best interests at heart because he really cares about you and cares about the team as a whole." - Tribune Review

  06/03/20 - RB CJ VerdellrJr/2022, Oregon, 5-09, 210 (DS#4 RB) + More +

  Gov. Kate Brown is ready for some football. Or at least for Oregon players and other athletes to begin preparing for the possibility of having a 2020 football season. During a news conference on Wednesday, Brown - who ordered the campus to remain closed through the remainder of the spring quarter, which ends June 12 - said Oregon athletes will be allowed to return to campus later this month. Last week, the Pac-12 announced that voluntary workouts for athletes at its member schools could begin on June 15. "I'm happy to say that our collegiate athletes will return to train by mid-June under specific health protocols to keep them safe and healthy and the staff healthy as well," Brown said. Coach Mario Cristobal said June 15 is the target date for some of his players to return. Oregon basketball coaches Dana Altman and Kelly Graves are targeting July to get their teams back together. Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said all returning athletes in the conference will be tested for COVID-19 and for antibodies for the virus. - Register Guard
