See, a 6-foot-5, 255-pound senior linebacker and tight end, made a commitment to Gators coach Steve Spurrier on Sunday during a visit to the Gainesville, Fla., campus. "I like the stadium, the fans get into the games down there, and it's always been my dream to go to Florida," See said. "If I broke my knee and couldn't play anymore, I could still see myself going to college down there.

Pennsylvania's colleges would need to meet performance-based targets to win new state funding under a recommendation by Gov. Corbett's commission on higher education. The proposal calls for "performance scorecards" that would take into account measures such as controlling tuition costs, opening access to low-income students and other underserved groups, and tailoring programs to meet workforce needs. Among other measures recommended for consideration are closing achievement gaps, on-time graduation rates, and contributions to the state's economic development.

Visor snug, shades on, and the sun beaming over a Southern college football field. Is there any other way - or place - to picture Steve Spurrier? The new University of South Carolina coach, a love-him-or-hate-him figure at Florida for 12 years, is back in familiar territory in the Southeastern Conference. After a disastrous two-year stint in the NFL, where he was 12-20 as head coach of the Washington Redskins, Spurrier said he feels rejuvenated roaming a college sideline again.

Dickinson College, in Carlisle, was one of the first colleges chartered in the United States. The college's charter, signed in September 1783, was prepared by Benjamin Rush, a prominent Philadelphia physician who believed that the new nation needed an educated citizenry to succeed. Rush worked to make education a priority for Americans and sought to open a new educational institution in Western Pennsylvania. At Rush's request, John Dickinson, the president of the Executive Council of Pennsylvania, agreed to lend his support and his name to the new college.

Brandon Austin, a former Imhotep Charter basketball star who was suspended from two colleges in six months amid sexual assault allegations, will play at Hutchinson Community College in Kansas, according to his lawyer, Laura Fine Morrow. Austin, 20, has not been charged in either case. Austin, a 6-foot-6 guard, was one of the country's top high school players in the 2012-13 season but has not played a college game yet. Providence College suspended Austin and teammate Rodney Bullock in November after a sexual assault investigation.

As Jeopardy! decides its new college champ today, many in the area will root for Sarah Bart, because she's a Central High grad who grew up in Mount Airy. But others might not - because she's been a "devoted fan for my entire life" of the New York Mets. So she told host Alex Trebek on Monday's show, the start of the two-part finale. Hopes to be the team's general manager someday, she said. The 22-year-old senior history major at Baltimore's Goucher College will have to stage a comeback, though.

TRENTON Gov. Christie's three nominees to a new Rowan University/Rutgers-Camden board of governors cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday. The full Senate must approve the nominees, who include Louis Bezich of Haddon Township, chief of staff to the president at Cooper University Hospital. The board - which is still incomplete - is a product of the Higher Education Restructuring Act, which was passed by the Legislature last year and took effect in July. It will oversee a new College of Health Sciences that includes programs at Rowan and Rutgers-Camden.

His right and lefthand men are in place. He has cleaned out the Eagles' front office to his liking. He has added a scout. Now, the Eagles are Tom Modrak's team. As much as possible, anyway. No, he didn't hire the coaching staff or the bulk of the scouting staff or college scouting coordinator Bryan Broaddus. No, he didn't add a single player. But the pieces are in place at the top to make whatever future changes he deems necessary, and he has the blessing of owner Jeffrey Lurie and executive vice president Joe Banner to do so. Yesterday, with new college scouting director John Goeller, new pro scouting coordinator Mike McCartney and new college scout Dave Boller (late of Tampa Bay)

College life used to be so spartan. Residents couldn't even hang pictures on their dorm room walls. Now it's easier than ever for scholars to stay connected, with variants on the smart gadgets they've grown accustomed to having at home. Some even keep parents and friends plugged in . . . at a distance. Dorm room 2.0. A boring dorm room can earn an instant, sexy makeover, just by slapping a motorized Switchmate Smart Light Switch atop the faceplate of a standard light switch (toggle or rocker)

With a heave of chrome shovels, the leadership of Rowan University and local politicians ceremonially broke ground Friday for a new home for the Rohrer College of Business. "What a day!" exclaimed Rowan's president, Ali Houshmand, who extolled the $63.2 million project as evidence of New Jersey's commitment to expanding educational opportunities for its high school graduates, many of whom are forced to look outside the state for higher education. When completed in spring of 2017, the four-story, 96,500-square-foot building will have capacity to serve 2,000 students, double the current business school enrollment at the university.

The first reminder we're starting a new era of college football: The national championship game won't be at the Rose Bowl or in New Orleans or Miami or any other site of the traditional big bowls. On Jan. 12, everybody will watch the action from the place Jerry Jones built, AT&T Stadium, in Arlington, Texas. Probably around midnight, a champion will be crowned, and the first year of the new four-team playoff system will be in the books. Those four teams are as far as the sport's powers (i.e., the power five conferences)

TRENTON - A board created to oversee a new health sciences partnership between Rowan University and Rutgers-Camden would gain eminent domain powers under a bill that cleared the Senate budget committee Monday. The bill, sponsored by Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D., Gloucester), also would allow Rowan to enter into public-private partnerships, including for new construction. It would exempt the school - elevated to a state research institution as a result of the higher-education restructuring that took effect last year - from certain public bidding requirements, in line with existing law granting exemptions for state colleges.

What might those grants make possible? Rutgers has announced it is applying for more than $410 million for projects across its campuses.

Penn State will open its football season Aug. 31 vs. Syracuse at MetLife Stadium in New York's College Classic, the teams announced Thursday. The time of the game has not been set. The Nittany Lions and Orange have met 70 times, the second-highest total for a Penn State opponent. Penn State owns a 42-23-5 series advantage, winning the most recent games, in 2008 and 2009. The teams met every season from 1944 to 1990 but did not meet again until the 2008 game in Syracuse's Carrier Dome.
