*Wes Byrum, the freshman field goal kicker, says he has more leg strength this week because he has spent less time on his punting. He says the combination of kicking off, kicking field goals and punting was leaving him leg weary.
*Cornerback Jonathan Wilhite had a good performance with his pass coverage in the 11 on 11 drills.
*True freshman wide receiver Chris Slaughter is coming on strong despite his late start while waiting on approval from the NCAA Clearinghouse. He made an impressive one-handed catch in one-on-ones and has consistently caught passes thrown in his vicinity.
*Wide receiver Montez Billings has not been cleared to practice as he tries to recover from a hamstring problem.
*Redshirt sophomore cornerback Jerraud Powers seems to be in the right place at the right time and continues to blanket the receivers in one on one and team drills. The sophomore corner picked off a pass in team drills that bounced off one of Robert Dunn's shoes. Dunn also had a good practice, continuing a theme that began in summer voluntary workouts.
