Junk from the football trunk

After the Giants rookie minicamp, safety Junior Mertile went from rookie tryout status to signed for training camp. So he'll get a shot. A longshot, but a shot.

Meanwhile, the Ravens jettisoned cornerback Jose Cheeseborough after rookie camp.

Although Monique Garcia's still listed as the athletic department's Assistant Director of APR on the FIUSports site, a few different sources said Garcia left weeks ago. They seem to think it portends even more trouble than expected on the APR front for football and basketball.


Deric Hill leaves FIU, Malik Smith, too

FIU's top three-point shooter, Malik Smith, who announced he was leaving FIU as soon as Richard Pitino took the Minneosta head coaching job then reconsidered, is following Pitino to Minnesota he announced Wednesday morning.

Walk on sophomore point guard Deric Hill ranked 17th nationally in steals per game for FIU this season, leading the Panthers to a No. 8 team national ranking. Hill sparked the defense coming off the bench at midseason as a frenetic, continuous thievery threat and proved indispensable to FIU's stunning run to one game short of the NCAA tournament.

Apparently, that wasn't good enough for a scholarship or to keep him at FIU. The South Miami High graduate will be transferring to Barry, a move first reported by FIU Student Media.
