Per Scout, Mark Harrison says he's qualified and will be on campus on June 28th. This is huge. Throw stars out the window; Harrison has Britt-level athleticism and could compete for playing time early.

"Arron's been out for a while, and I haven't seen him," Mangurian said. "He hasn't been practicing the last few days. I hope he's ready for training camp, but I'm going to worry about the guys that are here, coach those guys and give Jeremy Zuttah an opportunity to play and see what he can do."

The Houston Comets folded, and Matee Ajavon is now closer to home with the WNBA's Washington Mystics.

Word from this week's SEC meetings is that they're not echoing the Big Ten's harder line in negotiations with the Citrus Bowl.

SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said he expects a contract agreement to be reached some time by the end of the summer. Negotiations with Florida Citrus Sports, the Citrus Bowl's administrative arm, will begin next week. Backing from the powerful SEC is a jolt for a bowl that was approaching life support. "We understand they need to make improvements," said Slive at the Southeastern Conference Spring Meetings in Destin. "They've worked very hard to get the revenue to build the renovations they need. We have confidence that it's important enough for the community to make that happen."
