Senior tight end Cory White, who has already graduated, has been removed. He's finished with his college career and won't be on the 2013 team. White spent his entire career dealing with injuries.
Junior linebacker Gionni Paul has been removed. He announced two weeks ago that he would not be playing for the Hurricanes in 2013. It seems like a mutual decision was made to determine that. He was a reserve linebacker in 2012, but did make a couple starts.
Junior cornerback Thomas Finnie was arrested recently, and has been removed from the roster. He was a part-time starter but is now officially off the team.
There are 14 players listed as redshirt freshmen, which means they were granted redshirts for the 2012 season. Those players are QB Gray Crow, QB Preston Dewey, QB David Thompson, RB Danny Dillard, WR Jontavious Carter, WR D'Mauri Jones, OL Taylor Gadbois, OL Danny Isidora, DL Jacoby Briscoe, DL Jake O'Donnell, LB Jawand Blue, CB Nate Dortch, and CB Larry Hope.
Wide receiver Malcolm Lewis, who was injured early in 2012 and missed most of the season, is listed as a sophomore so he has not received a medical redshirt -- at least not yet.
