Duron Carter, Eddie Lacy and Cyrus Kouandjio will not be ready for the start of spring practice. Lacy is coming off turf-toe surgery, Carter ended the 2011 season on a suspension, so his status is unknown, and Kouandjio is coming off a knee surgery. [AL.com]
Greg Childs was the former wide receiver from Arkansas who stood out at Arkansas’ pro day yesterday. Childs ran a 4.41 40-yard dash, and showed signs of finally getting healthy after all his college injuries. In 2010, Childs had a season-ending knee injury, and he finally looks back to being the Greg Childs we all saw in early 2010. The guy can really play. [Whole Hog Sports]

Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease, who was hired following last football season, is set to make $1.8 million over three years. Pease will be paid much less than Charlie Weis. Pease was hired from Boise State, and his deal with Florida is through the 2014 season. [Palm Beach Post]
The top prospect in South Carolina committed to Georgia yesterday in wide receiver Tramel Terry. This is the second time that Terry has committed to Georgia, and the word is the locals around South Carolina were giving him a hard time about not being a Gamecock or Tiger (via @ParrishWalton). [AJC]
LSU wide receiver Russell Shepard loves this offense and where it is headed just from the early portion of spring practice. It is well documented that Shepard was ready to leave this program and go to the NFL but was talked out the deal. Shepard loves the fact that the offense will be more of a throwing offense as opposed to last season. Shepard has been non-existent throughout his three years at LSU, and he knows it’s time to step that up this coming season. [The Advocate]
