The new color in Jameel McClairen's life is orange. Orange, as in Syracuse Orange. St. James' 6-foot, 4-inch linebacker-to-be, an Inquirer all-area third-team selection on the defensive line, orally committed to Syracuse on a football scholarship Wednesday night, and he plans to return a signed letter of intent through the mail Wednesday, the first day of the signing period. McClairen said he would redshirt next season then vie for one of three linebacker spots that are expected to open before the 1993 season.

Temple coach Fran Dunphy has decided to redshirt freshman forward Anthony Lee this season. A decision on whether to redshirt senior forward Craig Williams will be made after a few more games. "[With] Craig, we're still trying to decide how to handle him," Dunphy said Thursday. "He's still not healthy enough to play anyway, yet. And he has to, obviously, improve his conditioning. " Lee and Williams have missed all of 19th-ranked Temple's games this season. The Owls are 12-3.

Erica Acuff, who has already qualified for the 2000 U.S. Olympic trials, has decided to sit out the 1999-2000 swim season at North Carolina. The former Episcopal Academy standout said she had a number of reasons for redshirting what would be her senior year. "The main reason is because I felt that I wasn't ready to be finished with swimming in college," said Acuff, who plans to return to school for the 2000-2001 season. "I don't think I've reached my potential in college yet. I have some goals I want to achieve here.

With redshirt freshman Chester Stewart bruised and battered after making his first collegiate start last week against Western Michigan, Temple football coach Al Golden said yesterday that two-year backup Vaughn Charlton might come off the redshirt list and start at quarterback Saturday at Miami of Ohio. Stewart, who took a pounding while making 12 runs for 29 yards in Temple's 7-3 loss, was in the lineup because starting quarterback Adam DiMichele was sidelined for three to six weeks after suffering a shoulder injury Sept.

Entering training camp, Temple appeared to have some questions about its secondary. But during the early portion of practice, coach Matt Rhule seems pleased with the play of his defensive backs, especially his safeties. "The safeties are playing at a high level," Rhule said on Friday after the first of two steamy practices. One of the big changes was moving junior Sean Chandler from cornerback to safety in an attempt to allow him to make even more big plays. Known as "Champ," Chandler made plenty of big plays at corner, with four interceptions, two returned for touchdowns, last year.

Temple redshirt freshman running back David Hood was so far down the depth chart that he couldn't see the field - until October. Considered the fifth of five running backs in August, Hood took advantage of his most extensive playing time during Saturday's 31-12 win over Memphis that kept the Owls on track to win the American Athletic Association East Division. Now Hood could be a factor as Temple hosts Connecticut in a Saturday's key 7 p.m. AAC game at Lincoln Financial Field.

Chris Clarke, a redshirt sophomore forward who had yet to make his Temple debut, and Carmel Bouchman, a seldom-used sophomore forward, have decided to leave the Owls' basketball program. Clarke, who used his redshirt season last year after transferring to Temple from Pensacola Junior College, decided to transfer to Division II Morehouse College in Atlanta. A university spokesman said Clarke was likely concerned about playing time. Bouchman, a native of Tel Aviv, Israel, decided to remain in his native country.

IF THERE WERE such a thing as a college football fantasy draft - uh, wait a second, there is - it's a safe bet no current Penn State tight end would be selected. Penn State tight ends totaled only five receptions, 63 yards and a single touchdown in 2010. That was a pronounced dropoff from the previous season, when the position accounted for 53 catches, 631 yards and five TDs. Two of the tight ends in 2009, Andrew Quarless and Mickey Shuler Jr., were seniors who were drafted by NFL teams.

Temple's Cherry and White Day scrimmage was not exactly an offensive masterpiece, but it was productive as far as coach Al Golden was concerned. Sophomore Brandon McManus converted a 51-yard field goal on the final play of the first quarter for the only points as White shut out Cherry, 3-0, Saturday before 4,400 fans at Temple. "We got a lot of work done today," Golden said on Saturday. "That was the most we've worked this spring. We have one more scrimmage on Thursday. I'm just trying to get them to understand how long they have to maintain their focus on game day. " A lot of attention focused on the quarterbacks.

When Villanova coach Andy Talley looked at his depth chart last season, it didn't take him long to realize what was best for running back Javon White. Talley had guys like Kevin Monangai - now on the Eagles' practice squad - Gary Underwood and Austin Medley firmly ahead of the Souderton High School product. After extensive conversations with White, the two sides agreed that the best thing for him was to redshirt in 2014 and have him available for the next two seasons. Last week in a 14-7 victory at Fordham, the wisdom behind the decision became apparent.

When he addressed the media at the start of Penn State's training camp last month, James Franklin sounded enthusiastic about having tight end Adam Breneman back after he sat out a year because of a knee injury. "He was in a much better place right now," Franklin said of the former No. 1 high school tight end. "I think in the long run it's probably going to be a positive for him and a positive for our program. " The Nittany Lions' regular-season opener against Temple at Lincoln Financial Field is three days away, but the prognosis on Breneman, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound redshirt sophomore, is anything but positive.

Stopping Penn State's defensive line, especially with the dynamic tackle combination of Anthony Zettel and St. Augustine's Austin Johnson, will be one of Temple's main challenges Saturday in the opener for both teams at Lincoln Financial Field. Temple coach Matt Rhule outlined the unit that will face that challenge Monday during a teleconference with the media. Rhule said his starting offensive line would be center Kyle Friend, guards Shahbaz Ahmed and Brian Carter, and tackles Dion Dawkins and Leon Johnson.

REDSHIRTING is a common practice for college athletes, especially football players. Theoretically, the idea is to give freshmen a year to adjust to college life before throwing in the additional pressures of being an athlete. That they get a free year to physically develop is an important side issue. There are other reasons for redshirting, most often serious injury, and the first recognized case dates back to the University of Nebraska in 1937. Still, while redshirting is declining as more true freshmen are playing, a new phenomena involving the practice appears to be growing popularity.

Something just didn't seem right with Temple running back Zaire Williams. He knew it and the Owls coaching staff realized it. Finally, there was a reason for the lack of explosion in his game. Williams, who will be a redshirt sophomore, had a bulging disk in his back last season. He saw limited action in the Owls' opening 37-7 win at Vanderbilt, with 17 yards on seven carries. Then an MRI exam revealed his season-ending injury. Williams said he didn't need surgery but went through strenuous rehabilitation.

WHEN PENN STATE tight end Kyle Carter looks at the record books 10 years from now, he won't see this season's 7-6 mark and just think of the wins and losses. He'll remember a year of personal frustrations ending in jubilation. When Carter arrived at Yankee Stadium last Saturday, the redshirt junior hadn't scored a touchdown in 25 games. But that changed when it mattered most. The 6-3, 241-pound Carter used his size to haul in the final touchdown of the Nittany Lions' overtime win over Boston College in the Pinstripe Bowl to end an individually disappointing campaign by celebrating with his teammates.

EIGHT DAYS ago, Penn State's football team held its annual preseason media day at Beaver Stadium, where nearly 90 non-freshmen players were spread out across the yet-to-be-painted natural grass field. The defensive linemen were stationed to a far corner, in an area of the field typically used as part of the opposition's sideline. Midway through the hour the players spent in the stadium, about 10 reporters huddled around the 6-4, 255-pound defensive end sporting a blue No. 18 uniform.
