Here's a round-up of news stories from the media:

The State - Notebook: Gilmore more concerned with defense

Gilmore, a freshman All-American last season, said improving as a corner is his first priority.

"I'm not the best I can be at cornerback right now. I don't want to be struggling at cornerback, and then try to be somewhere else on offense," he said. "I'll do (passing drills) on my own."

Gilmore hopes to improve on his performance in 2009, when he had eight pass breakups but only one interception.

"I think this year is going to be better than my freshman year tackling-wise and making a play on the ball and (recognizing) where the receivers are lining up."

Since the beginning of spring practice, D.J. Swearinger has drawn the praise of assistant head coach Ellis Johnson.

That continued after the Garnet and Black game Saturday afternoon at Williams-Brice Stadium.

"D.J. has brought a punch," Johnson said. "He has been the most obvious hitter out there. Day in and day out, D.J. is about the only one out there that pops like an SEC football player."
