Latwan commits to Miami- Presser cancelled Reply

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Latwan just texted me to say he has committed to Miami, and will not have his press conference.

I asked him if he has signed his LOI yet, and I have not gotten a response.

Anderson is a great pickup. No we just have to find a football scholly for him :)

SuperCooper

lol

"Top recruit Latwan Anderson, a defensive back from Glenville, Ohio, will commit to Miami at a press conference at his high school this morning. Anderson, a U.S. Army All-American, was ranked as the No. 15 player in the nation by Rivals.com. He had originally committed to West Virginia during an in-game announcement at the bowl but re-opened his search following a mid-January offer from USC. Anderson had planned a visit to the Trojans but it never materialized. Instead, he made an official visit to Miami last weekend.

"I felt that all things were equal between West Virginia and Miami," said Anderson about the two schools. "The only difference was the football. In my opinion, Miami is far and away closer to winning conference and national championships than West Virginia."

Along with having family in Florida, Anderson said one other major factor figured into his decision.

"Even if I don't make the NFL, I could see myself living in Miami after I get my degree," Anderson said. "I don't know if I can say the same if I went to West Virginia. I don't know if I can see myself living there after school."

How does Anderson compare to Joyner?

drtycane

he's more physical and not a egotistical crybaby like joyner is....he is true to his game and he is ready to go brantley hunting

Aquaman

Lol, so we did the right thing. Big time get Randy and co.

...now is seantrel's turn to jump on this titanic ship....

Wow... Way to pull this kid Randy. If he pull Seantrel people will have to eat their words.

Wherever Latwan commits and I hope it's us. He's definitely put himself on West Virginia's radar.

I thought both Corey's were dead years ago. I learned something today.

Jersey_Cane

I said it on signing day. Where a recruit commits doesn't matter on signing day, what matters is August. This is because nearly 15% of a team's commits may not quality or may ask for a release. August is looking better and better for us my friends! Nice grab Randy.

nemo2002

I hope the news about LA is correct. This is a great pick up, if true. (Yeah, I do think that multi-STAR recruits are potential difference makers. I'd take one over a PROJECT any day of the week.)

Here's what I DON'T understand . . .
Why would anyone NOT want to commit to da U??

Well hell yeah! Welcome Latwan Anderson!!!!!!

P.S. Nice Damien Barry audio with The Big Dog.

Go 'canes!

CaneSniper

I don't see how we can get Seantrel scholly-wise. The Latwan Anderson articles say there were no remaining football scholarships, and he can only use a track one because he was not recruited by the football program. Since Seantrel was recruited, he will not be able to pull a scholarship switcheroo.

Playa..The Blogger Formerly Known as Rashad

Great Pickup.. Welcome to the Fam L.A! Go Canes!!!

Ungar

Seantrel can slip into the first slot left open by any grade casualties.

He can still sign, and then we can worry about the numbers later, right? It isn't an infraction if he signs the offer, only if we pay his scholarship.

drtycane

seantrel is still deciding either OSU or U....why can't we depart ways with wieclaw and hardin?

UMike

hardin? I wouldnt part ways with a kid who bleeds orange and green and has been injured just for a kid that choose USC over us....just my opinion...now wieclaw on the the other hand lol...according to rivals, we added a kicker..who was that Hopfinger or hoever you say his name?

CaneSawMassacre

LOL get ready.....

Its going to be a good spring for the CANES... Heading into the summer with a BCS title run (though I don't think we get to the game.. 1 slip up or 2 max) but your boys will be in a BCS game come January and be in the hunt after they dog stomp OSU and PITT

solarcane

The best thing that is ever going to happen, will be after next year's recruiting class, you won't see the anticipation and urgency that we HAVE to have this or that kid.

The Canes will be deep at every position and you won't be seeing freshmen forced into action before they are physically or mentally ready.
Most of the next recruits won't be on the field regularly til their junior years.

Seeing guys beating up 17 year old boys in high school doesn't always equal 17 year old guys beating up 21 year old men in college.

CaneSawMassacre

It makes me laugh that people think we are going to struggle since we lost to WISKY....

If we have a healthy QB we win by one TD easy, even with the line playing OLE'...

Jacory missed so many open TD's passes and third down conversions because of his hand. I've never seen him play a game like that. With that said we still were in the game until the end, that says a lot about this team, though they def. have to TOUGHEN UP.. Year 3 of a strength and training program should take care of that.

solarcane

I think Jacory leads the ACC in TDs and interceptions next year because he isn't going to sweat throwing it deep.

I think he cuts his ints back a ton and increases his tds.
I don't mind a few picks here and there because that happens when you have a qb with nads.
Be nice having Jacory leading games going into the fourth quarter instead of bragging we have a qb that can always bring us back.

CaneSawMassacre

Be nice having Jacory leading games going into the fourth quarter instead of bragging we have a qb that can always bring us back.

Very true... I think he brought us into the 4th quarter leading in more games then he won us game..

Can't remember specifics like FSU, I know he drove us to a td in the 4th to go ahead, but I don't remember the score going into the 4th, and he didn't have the ball in his hands at the end of the game.

GT - Leading big by the 4th

VT - Not close in the 4th


Oklahoma - He led us back in the game, and sustained a long 4th quarter drive to seal the deal but who was leading heading into the 4th? (by the way some of the best and gutsy play calling by whip all year on that drive)

FAMU - Whoopin'
Virginia -Whoopin
Wake - 4th quarter comeback
Clemson- back and forth, with a late drive I believe in a loss altogether
UNC- late drive to attempt to come back (Jacory's worst game)
Duke - 2nd half comeback?? Does that count
USF - No comeback

solarcane

"Anderson finished his senior season with 66 tackles, four forced fumbles and 14 interceptions."

geezus a Cane db that can catch an airborne football yippeee!

He's an astute kid. I've never heard a kid say something with that much foresight.

Welcome to the Fam!

CaneSawMassacre

Solar LA is a beast.. We are really really lucky he waned to be a CANE Bad...

Most primadonna 5 stars would never have gone through what he went through..

Kind of a double edged sword, people say Randy is a genius for this but word was this kid always wanted to be a CANE and coaches didn't recruit him because they assumed he was an OSU lock being from Glenville. I don't know specifics but Randy at least got A LITTLE LUCKY that this kid didn't sign with WVU on signing day.

And I'm a big Randy supporter so U all can start blasting me if U like.

 DATcane

Kevin Nelson FB- I Cant Wait To Run Through That Smoke!! With Sebash n my Squad

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

CSM, you're right about Shannon not recruiting the kid but if you recall he puts a premium on targeting kids most likely to come, so LA being from Glenville was definitely NOT on that list.

Mentally though, he's all Boss U, definitely not a Suckeye.

Anyone know the story of how he the staff got a hold of him?

solarcane

CSM
I'm hype!

CSM if we stomp OSU and Pitt, I'll officially say we're back.

Aquaman

I feel the same way CSM, but I give Randy credit for having things in place for a kid like Anderson to wanna come no matter the circumstances.

Cat 5 Cane

"Anderson finished his senior season with 66 tackles, four forced fumbles and 14 interceptions."

66 tackles for a 5-9 DB... WTF
4 forced fumbles... He's a hitter
14 INT... isn't taught. The kid's got talent and instinct to get to the ball.

Now, lets see him bust a spot on the roster.

Welcome to the U!

drtycane

hardin? I wouldnt part ways with a kid who bleeds orange and green and has been injured just for a kid that choose USC over us....just my opinion...now wieclaw on the the other hand lol...according to rivals, we added a kicker..who was that Hopfinger or hoever you say his name?

Posted by: UMike | March 10, 2010 at 11:31 AM

good point, but i would rather have a healthy player, than a nagging injured one....we'll see
its hopfinger....lol, i think?!?!?
anyone hear the severity of b.washington's injury? hope its not that bad....

 DATcane

B. Washington...just a sprain, he will be ready to go!

Six

Is it a definite that Anderson is a Cane

If Mike Vick had your dog in a bath tub full of water, ready to drop 50 plugged in curling irons/clothes iron/Foreman grills to light that puppy up like a pinball machine .... would you say that Anderson is a Cane?

Or is all this just speculation

B/c I've heard it before and so has everyone else how so-and-so is a Cane ... but then they aren't a few hours later

And why the hell would you want to depart ways with Hardin over a kicker? You kidding me? Since when did having some depth on the defense ever hurt? Since when did the Canes actually have some depth on defense in the first place since Boss Man Shannon has taken over?

CaneSawMassacre

CAV from my understanding, and there is were the Shannon genius comes in....

they basically called after NSD, and spoke with his coaches just to inquire about why he didn't sign..

From there its a bit more hush hush because of the specifics of his case ( being a track scholarship he can not have been recruited for football at all)

but at the point randy handed the kids info to Amy Deam the track recruiting coordintor.. The rest is history.

With that said, reports state there has been no convo betwen LA and Shannon & Staff... (HMMMMMM, lol)

Also I don't think this kid every counts as a track scholarship just my very humble UNPROFESSIONAL OPINION!

UMike

Six...we were talking about departing with Hardin or Wieclaw to make way for Seantral Henderson

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

CSM, actually if we BEAT OSU and stomp Pitt, I'll say we're officially back. Then again, we'll be officially back when we stomp UNC and VT. That's when we're back.

But if we win all those games it will be difficult to deny "we're back", although I still won't think we're back until 2011.

CaneSawMassacre

Unless he has an injury or or doesn't qualify he will play on special teams, and likely get PT in nickel or dime situations at one point or another consider the scarcity of our DB situation.

He has the tools to make a Ray Ray impact if not more considering his punt return prowess, and his ball skills.

Again, unprofessional opinion.. LOL

CaneSawMassacre

2011 is a BCS championship def..

BUT I could see this team making a run this year.. Think about how they were tested last year, with sophmores in KEY positions, and fill ins. IF the injury bug doesn't bite, I'm going with 11-2

drtycane

wow...sorry if i started an uproar...just thinking about players that have not made an impact/seen the field since they've been here....gotta make room for the bosses, right Capt?

CaneSawMassacre

Six he cancelled his presser and said it was a done deal.

Just waiting on the paperwork to sign and send back... I mean if WVU buys him house on the mountaintop within the next 24 hours I guess anything is possible, but they had an interview with the kid and he sounded just as much of a CANE as some of the MNW crew...

If you think about it, what MNW kid would have done what this kid did TO BE A CANE???

j.w.

good day from the West Coast, people! Great pickup in L.A. I still see him redshirting this year, though. We need about six guys to transfer, not qualify, or get the boot before he could claim a scholarship. We lose guys every year for different reasons, but those ## are a lot higher than a typical Shannon team.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Drty, I think you're spot on. Wieclaw needs to roll out. Hardin seems to be a casualty. There aren't an unlimited number of seats on this bus.

BOSS AND HAWGS ONLY!!

Sarasota 'cane

And I'm a big Randy supporter so U all can start blasting me if U like.

Posted by: CaneSawMassacre | March 10, 2010 at 12:05 PM

I don't think you can slight Randy for not recruiting this kid harder. UM has to pick their battles for recruits carefully. UM cannot throw a lot of money trying to recruit kids from areas dominated by other schools.

This is a situation where the kid needs to let Miami know that they want to go to UM, and then UM can begin to recruit them.

Randy spelled out UM's recruiting strategy on WQAM a couple of weeks ago. 1st they try to lock down the So. Florida players they want, then they look around the rest of Florida, then they try to fill needs nationally.

Regardless of how LA ended up at UM, Randy and Co. still had to "close" the deal. Lucky for us, UM has a lot to offer!

P.S. If Henderson wants to sign with UM, UM will have a scholarship for him. U can vault that!

Go 'canes!

CaneSawMassacre

j.w. from my understanding.

The bar has already been laid out, if he is good enough to play.... He will be on the field.

Now if he needs to redshirt or he gets injured a different story.

There will be attrition at the end of spring. Always is, and there will be a few academic casualties.

CaneSawMassacre

Sarasota -

You know I gotcha back from the sun-sentinal days... BUT - He did tell the staff he wanted to be at UM bad, but I'm guessing there was some bad blood with Glenville with a couple other recruits leaving him hanging dry..

(I don't fault Randy - Just saying he got a little lucky) Now I won't comment on your close the deal comment LOL - cause from my understanding Randy had nothing to do with this (Hehehehe) Amy Deam closed the deal.. (hehehe)

Cat 5 Cane

Not completely sure how it works, but if you have been sitting on the back bench or not on the scrub teams since 07/08... It's time to clean house.

Canes Law...Play or move over and if last on the end of the bench... clean your locker.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

CSM, LA has more ball skills and natural CB skills than DVD and probably McGee, so depending on how he spends his spring and prepares for the fall, he could come in and make an impact.

Remember, Shields was a starter for much of last season, and he's not very athletic, just fast.

LA may not be as fast overall but he knows football. We'll see how much over the summer. CB is probably the last spot where a true frosh could come in and get serious PT.

I don't see him RS.

Teflon cane

So u mean to tell me we got a track athlete by the name of Latwan Anderson who happens to play a little football. YEAHHHH! On WaRDS TO 2011 bcs

CaneSawMassacre

I dunno we have had some late senior bloomers the last couple years...

I mean Wieclaw seems like a bit of a bust.. but can they offer to pay their schooling even if they choose not to be on the team oorrrrrrr do they have to transfer????

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

If you think about it, what MNW kid would have done what this kid did TO BE A CANE???

Sounds familar...can you say Santana Moss lol

Cat 5 Cane

drty... Just read your post. Ohooo Yeah!

CaneSawMassacre

LA may not be as fast overall but he knows football. We'll see how much over the summer. CB is probably the last spot where a true frosh could come in and get serious PT.

"Timed at one time at 4.36, and you can see legit speed on film. He isn't some guy your going to be like.... Hmmm he doesn't have 4.4. speed. He looks faster"

His closing speed is insane

11.6 100m 21.0 200M He really starts to pick up..

I saw some film on Punt Returns, and INT's where there wasn't anybody within 25 yards or even on the film.

But his instincts, ball skills, and tackling is what puts him over DVD, and B.MgGee as far as his POTENTIAL to be a STUD D-1 player.

CaneSawMassacre

The only downsize he even has is height 5'9 (just about) and frame 180 ( he says he is 185 right now I believe)

That is why I'm hoping he has the hips for Corner, I would not be sad to see him play safety though. Cause he could def. be # 2 right away and he could potentially steal someones spot if there is an injury there (which we know there always is)

Six

So basically, nothing has really been set in stone yet still about Anderson. He didn't have a presser - understandable. When he gets down to Greentree is when I'll know he's a Cane

And everyone should understand this type of thinking b/c of the times the fans have been burned by other kids saying that they're Canes


UMike and drtycane, ya I gotcha about making room for Henderson IF he comes - all I was saying is, having depth on defense is always nice over a kicker b/c we all know sh*t can happen at any time. A walk-on decides to bow up and sucker punch a starting DE, etc.

I'd rather have some walk-on kicker from the practice squad be able to be called up if an absolute emergency is needed at back-up kicker, than to just let a player like Hardin go ... he's still a pup, didn't he receive a medical hardship, so he's got a lot left in him

j.w.

CSM- I really hope you are right about getting him a football scholly, I think the kid is definitely good enough to contribute early. Glad to see we got someone late, didn't let height become an issue, may or may not have had "character issues", and from Ohio. That breaks a few tendencies that we'd heard about in recent weeks. :)

CaneSawMassacre

Ya.. I think the character issues had something to do with it...

but from my understanding it was his freshman year?? Can anybody confirm this?

I guess he got into a shouting argument and let hormones get the best of him and he pushed a teacher. I don't know the veracity of this push or w/e happened, but he switched schools after that.

I know of no other incidents and the kid sounds, at least by interviews well grounded, humble, and very down to earth.

Again, I'm just trying to think of a precedent does anybody have any information about when a 5 star top 15 athlete in the country, took a track scholarship to be a part of a program???

UMike

Six....i agree with you...but what I was trying to say is...I PERSONALLY wouldnt get rid of someone like Hardin to make room for Henderson. First, Henderson picked USC...second he is a unproven high school player....Hardin was proving himself before the injury, he is a CANE..i'd wouldnt get rid of im to open a scholly for someone who COULD be the next Ian Symonette for all we know. imo

CaneSawMassacre

I think most people would laugh at this..."he next Ian Symonette for all we know. imo"

Not the point of keeping Hardin which I agree with not about the morality of it (Just because I think Hardin could have something to give to this team still, and i think there is some other dead weight that could be moved)

but I don't think Henderson will be anything like Symonette who can't move at all and was never tested against serious COMP.. Henderson has the goods WITH That said any recruit can be a bust.. If Henderson is though it won't be because he was an immobile GIANT.. It will be because he didn't work for it, or he stopped caring.

pb(CSROH10)


The ink will barely dry on that track scholarship before a half dozen kids from this class don't qualify academically and he gets moved to football.

Remember we have 20-25 guys coming in the fall and as is always the case, some won't have the grades.

CaneSawMassacre

Symonnette should have never been offered a ride here..

A Friend

Didn't Capt. Optimist say a that A Friend told him this same thing a few days ago....

Latwan believes he will ultimately play cornerback at Miami. However, those questions were not addressed on his visit. The weekend only included visits with academic advisors, and track coaches. Anderson said he will be on track scholarship his first year at Miami, while playing football as well. If he plays his freshman season for the football team, he will switched over to a football scholarship.

"I will do both my first year," Anderson said. "It works well together. They have a lot of players that do both. I am not going into an untested situation. It is something that is proven to have worked with other players there.

"With football, it is a situation where they signed as many players as they could. I still would have a chance to start of play early on the football field. They are a bit thin a cornerback, so I don't know if I would sit out a year. If I sit out, I would just redshirt. If I had to play this year, someone else is going to have to redshirt that the coaches know is not going to play."

Capt. Optimist, U have a smart friend. ;-)

Posted by: pb(CSROH10) | March 10, 2010 at 01:04 PM

Exactly right. I went back to get more info on Latwan Anderson on ESPN recruiting site and I scrolled right by Prince Kent. Anyone remember him? Jarrod Bunche, Brandon Washington?

Rumors this year are Tavadis Glenn and Travis Williams. Also don't like the fact that Eduardo Clements didn't EE when he was supposed to. Could be nothing, ala Futch, or something, ala Prince Kent.


Anyways with AB back in Knasas and Symonette confirmed off the team I'm sure we got a scholly for Henderson if he wants it. Do we care about him anymore? I'm not big on being the 2nd choice to anyone.

And I'm sure Randy has the L.A. thing set up perfectly. I doubt Randy on a few things but have TOTAL faith in his ability to recruit, massage the rules, etc. without going over to... "the dark side".

Gotta say its a good day:)

Six

UMike - I hear ya brah, and I am in complete agreement on everything you just said about Hardin


CaneRock

I think we need to slow down on Anderson coming in here taking someone's spot. Remember, there were some on here who thought that Ray Ray would come in here and take someone's spot, and that didn't happen. Yeah, He might look good in those highlight reels, but remember, those are basically little kids that He's going up against. Ray Ray looked good in His highlight reels, but when He finally stepped foot on the practice field, I think the knock on Him was His footwork, so we'll see...

RBLCane

WE GOT SOME CANES OVER HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Woooosh, wooosh!!!!

Welcome to Miami Mr. Anderson. We FINALLY got the icing on the recruiting cake we were all waiting for on NSD. Once again, Randy gets the job done.

GO CANES!!!


Six

CaneSaw - we don't know any more about Henderson than we did about Symonette. Symonette played in Houston Texas, Henderson played in Minnesota.

You tell me which state plays better football and is ALWAYS in the argument of which state produces the best football players. Minnesota, not so much in that argument - ever.

Hindsight is 20-20 on Symonette.

You can't say that Henderson went up against "proven" competition in high school up in Minnesota over what Symonette faced in Houston.

St.Pius is a 12 time State Champ in Texas and 21 time District Champ. The high school that Henderson went to is a 2 time State Champ in Minnesota.


From Scout.com, verbatim

"Symonette is a manchild. The Houston Area OT measures 6-9, 330 pounds and his athleticism at that size is absolutely bizarre. Not to mention, this giant OT prospect has a phenomenal work ethic. Kid is so advanced physically, athletically and mentally that he's more than ready for college ball."


Henderson most likely will turn out to be better than Symonette, but to say that Symonette never should've been offered and that Henderson played against better competition - in Minnesota - is reaching

Posted by: CaneRock | March 10, 2010 at 01:22 PM

Ray Ray was already starting and lost that spot only because of injury.

He will be a man among boys this season. Have a feeling this new kid will be too. I don't care what the level of competition is, 14 picks in a season is a staggering number.

CaneSawMassacre

CaneRock - Ray Ray got #2 spot his freshmen year, started a couple games. Got some nice PT..

So considering the talent level he might have played against while at Seminole (Thought he did beat MNW in the state game) he showed his ability when the lights came on..

What I'm saying is that L.A. has the best POTENTIAL of any true DB we've signed in the last few years.. So if things play out on a best case scenario he could easily have serious impact.

I think he will play, not saying he will be a starter (though I'm not old DVD, and hoping McGee can push him)

CaneSawMassacre

Six -

I don't care what one person quoted as saying...

He was a 2* maybe 3* recruit at an average high school team in Texas.. (Not some powerhouse) and if you remember he only had what... 1-2 years of organized ball because he came from the bahamas..

S.Henderson is a 4 year starter at a powerhouse program, and he has been in constant competition with the best of the best across the country in camps and championship games. The footwork between the 2 isn't even comparable, NOT EVEN CLOSE....


He could be a bust, but he will never be Symonnete.

Yep. He could take someone's spot and if it's anyone's I'd bet on DVD's. And if the prospect of having a true frosh take your position as a SENIOR doesn't light a fire under his azz, nothing will.

"I will do both my first year," Anderson said. "It works well together. They have a lot of players that do both. I am not going into an untested situation. It is something that is proven to have worked with other players there.

"With football, it is a situation where they signed as many players as they could. I still would have a chance to start of play early on the football field. They are a bit thin a cornerback, so I don't know if I would sit out a year. If I sit out, I would just redshirt. If I had to play this year, someone else is going to have to redshirt that the coaches know is not going to play."

I feel what ya'll sayin' and all, but whose to say that He even takes the spot of one of the incoming freshmen DBs, namely Jeremy Davis and Kacy Rodgers, those guys have pretty good NFL pedigrees...

The sideline cool zone fans made a larger contribution to this program than Symonette.

He should've just started handing out towels and some H2O to help pay for the educatuion he was housing.

One more season of standing on the sideline every game and he was going to suffer the first ever dual ACL tears from just standing still.

Those knees need a break.

Good luck big fella.

I also have a feeling Hardin never sees the field. I think his neck injury is a tough one that he will not bounce back from. Feel bad for the kid. Hope I am wrong.

GO CANEZ!!!!!
