Former Michigan wide receiver Toney Clemons had 4 receptions for 31 yards and 1 touchdown in Colorado’s 37-17 loss to Ohio State on Saturday.

Former Michigan commit Dallas Crawford has not played for the Miami Hurricanes this year and looks like he’s headed for a redshirt, but he’s still on the roster.  There were some rumors that he was not on the team.

Former Michigan commit Matt Goudis, a kicker, also has not played for Miami but still remains on the roster.

Former Michigan commit Pearlie Graves, a defensive tackle, has decided to transfer from Texas Tech.  His destination is unknown.

Former Michigan commit Marquis Maze had 5 receptions for 40 yards in Alabama’s 38-14 victory over Arkansas.

Former Michigan running back Sam McGuffie, now at Rice, had 9 carries for 24 yards in a 56-31 loss to Baylor.  He also had 2 receptions for 2 yards.

Former Michigan commit Bryce McNeal has decided to leave Clemson.  He’ll try to graduate in the spring after only three years of college and then transfer to another school.  He has only 1 reception for 8 yards on the season, which came against Wofford.

Former Michigan commit John Wienke is third on the depth chart at quarterback for the Iowa Hawkeyes.  He’s a redshirt junior this season, but I have to believe that he won’t get a fifth year of eligibility.

Vladimir Emilien intends to play for Toledo in 2012

Former Michigan safety Vladimir Emilien still remains at Toledo, contrary to what I reported previously.  In an exchange with TTB Andrew, he said, “I’m still on the team. This is just my sit out year NCAA rule for transferring. But since I have to sit out this year, I am more focused on school rather than worrying about games every Saturday. But I still have to practice and workout with the team.  Until I’m eligible my main focus is focusing on my grades and making this football program successful with my help.”

Former kicker/punter commit Anthony Fera is having a solid season at Penn State.  He’s averaging 44.6 yards on eight punts and 64.4 yards on five kickoffs.  Essentially, he’s Will Hagerup.  Except Fera’s not suspended right now.

Former defensive tackle commit DeQuinta Jones has 7 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, and 2 quarterback hurries on the season for Arkansas.

Former wide receiver commit Marquis Maze has 15 catches for 186 yards and 1 touchdown on the season for Alabama.

Former quarterback commit Kevin Sousa is currently redshirting for Wake Forest.

Former Michigan running back Austin White is currently redshirting for Central Michigan.  Because he began the fall semester in 2010 at Michigan, he must sit out for the 2011 season.
