Wuz up Sling? I remember you & pre83 from the original days. I just typed the 1st few names that came to mind. Shot out to the ones that are still here, the ones who aren't & all the new blood on the blog. Yall know what it's all about. DA "U"!

CoCane

I had a dream Young, L. Williams & Howard all signed with the "U". It's just a dream. Nothing wrong with that...

Congratulations SB, keep doin' ya' thing baby, it's all about The U!

CaneRock

"Fans, people don't understand how much work goes into this. Me and Malcolm [Lewis] were out at the park at 11 o'clock at night, battling, doing one-on-ones when the lights of the park went off every night. We lifted weights, ran bleachers when we didn't feel like it. We did sprints with my sprint coach, film studies for three hours every night, plus homework. Then, we woke up and did it all over again. The recruiting process is the easy part. You're just making a choice."

"They say if I don't go to Miami, Miami fans are going to be acting crazy and all that. Or if I don't go to Florida, those guys are going to be mad. I honestly don't care. They really don't know me. They weren't with me when I was there doing all the things I needed to do to get to where am. This is a selfish decision. You have to do what's best for you at the end of the day."

FYI - Lockhart still waiting on NCAA Clearinghouse

I'll be very surprised if CB Antonio Crawford, 5'11'' and 180 lbs, does not commit to UM this weekend - IMO if he gets offered = Pick UM.

Ohio_Cane

Wish I could be a fly on the wall when Golden talks to TH about coming to Miami this weekend. Would be amazing to listen to.

SlingBlade

Golden and Leniency are supposed to be at PBG high this afternoon. I hope they know its an early release day. Wouldn't look to good showing up and the school was empty.

SlingBlade

Golden and kehoe....I hate auto correct.

Ohio_Cane

Trying to type Kehoe and got Leniency?

I tried to type discipline the other day and it corrected it to sociolinguistics!! LOL

Either a last minute vacation to South Beach, or Golden is working some magic.

Not that I've heard of. Maybe a late push? I really don't know a lot about this kid or his recruitment so far.

It seems like a free vacation, honestly, but who knows? Maybe Golden can sway him while he's there. Might just be the risk he's taking.

SinisterCane

Tha U

3G Cane

Per JH Clemons- He is excited to meet Ray Lewis when he comes down this weekend.

UpNorthCane27

If Coach Golden has Tracy howard and all those other stud recruits visiting in a week that he knows some ex-hurricane nfl players are gonna be there he is a genius...

Imagine tracy, Darius, And leonard williams meeting Ray lewis and hearing him speak about the U...they will be signed and sealed!!!!

TJL

Who is JH Clemons? This is the only one I found:

Antonio Crawford from Plant?

I'll be very surprised if he signs with Miami .. then again, if he's promised immediate playing time b/c of depth issues at DB, who knows


Golden needs to get into this area and get more of these kids


LB

Ray Lewis is going to be there? Sheesh.

That's for sure one extra commit, perhaps 2.

UpNorthCane27

LB..... thats what im saying man with ray lewis there if he doesnt make you wanna committ to the U than that recruit ahs a serious issue mentally....

Six

By the way, Greg Schiano supposed to be named Bucs head coach


Hassan - Crow shouldn't even be a 3 star. Without Diomi Roberts and that Countryside OLine, he wouldn't even be rated that high. If you want to push the players in front of you, have someone good enough to scare them about losing their job


Old Skool - UiF has set the standard for hardball in this state when O'Sullivan got there. Canes record is crap against him, esp. in the post-season when it really counts

CaneRock

Posted by: Six | January 26, 2012 at 11:25 AM

That's why it surprised me when you said Kehoe wasn't familiar with Pasco County.
IMO, if that's your area as a recruiter, then you should know every nook and cranny of that region.

But then again, Pasco County is one place I WOULDN'T wan't to get stranded in at night because my car broke down.
I remember some years ago my homeboy had me take Him through there to go look at a '64 Impala. And I'll tell you what, I had to turn my high beams on because you couldn't see your hands in front of you it was so dark on this one particular road.

And I don't know what Hillsborough County is like, but I can tell you from living in Polk County, the kids in that area aren't too fond of Dade County kids for whatever reason<<<<<<<<< at least that's the impression that I got when I lived there in the mid-90s...

____________________________________________


Lately I have been making inroads with a couple more insiders, another former cane from the area. Tracy Howards does not have a twitter account but his mom does, and if you follow her she just loves soaking up the attn, Tracy wants to come to DA U but his mom loves teh attention, after NSD all that goes away and she finally conceded that, so she is onboard with DA U and I am told he will sign with us but wants to give his mom her shine. Kinda sad but is fairly common these days.

SIX, I agree Crow would be a 1 star or 2 star IMO, he has a good frame and can spin it but he really sprays it too much, Accuracy is VERY important to me in a QB. But he is a hard worker and can get better so who knows where he ends up after a spring and a RS year to get better.


UpNorthCane27

Greg Shiano to the bucs means that Darius hamilton to the Canes!!!!

UpNorthCane27

Hassan your a beast bro thanks for the hardwork and info you provide man.

CGNC

LOL was there a CO sighting on the other article??? Yes there was! Co! come out come out wherever you are

herbieibis

Shiano going to Bucs, would be sweet but that may only put us in second for Hamilton, with Flo. probably sliding in at one. We'll see what kind of closer Goldie is after this weekend.

Posted by: Hassan | January 26, 2012 at 11:54 AM

I was watching Him throwing it around on YT at a particular camp. And the one thing that I noticed with Him is that He waits for the WR to get there, instead of anticipating when the WR is gonna come out of His break, and then throwing it. In a West Coast Offense, the ball is supposed to be half-way there before the WR even turns around. But IMO, that's something that can be corrected when He gets on campus through reps and film-work...

Hassan

I hrard lockhart did not pass clearing house. Yrst scores or something. Hope is supposrd to be in but some paperwork stuff still, not official but who knows.

Ohio_Cane

JC Shurburtt - RE: Shiano's departure - The father of four-star offensive tackle Ryan Brodie (Long Branch, N.J.) told me Greg Schiano's departure for the Tampa Bay Bucs affects everything with his son. He recently picked the Scarlet Knights over Connecticut and West Virginia. Miami also was involved to a certain extent.

From: http://247sports.com/Board/30/Couple-of-Rutgers-recruit-notes-7234439

j.w.

At least Lockhart has several months to get things in order to arrive in the Summer, if it's simply paperwork.
Schiano's departure could present some new options for several teams, UM included!
Last but not least, CGNC- simple lead changes yesterday for the first time, what a challenge but it was really fun! Flying lead changes are the next hurdle, once I figure this out.

Six

CaneRock - I hear ya on Pasco. There's certain parts up there that seem like Alaska when they only have a few hours of daylight ... let's just say as well that we get the craziest calls to our station from viewers up there. There's a lot of developing though going on up in Pasco esp. on State Road 54. Polk County is known to be just straight redneckish

Surprised me as well with Kehoe about Pasco. I know he should be focused more on the 813/727/941 triangle from Tampa out to Lakeland and down to Sarasota, but Pasco has a few players as well

Six

CGNC - he won't even come up when you open the door? Your boy sounds spoiled, haha

Ohio_Cane

Andre Johnson and A-Rod at UM weightroom today, according to Dewey.

Ohio_Cane

PS - Ray Lewis won't be on campus this weekend. He'll be in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl.

Ohio_Cane

Hassan, that's some awesome info! Well done!

Ohio_Cane

SOUP, any info on Andre Johnson? ;-)

UMike

The pro bowl before the super bowl is just dumb imo

I like what Coach Golden has done in the 12 months he's been here. We were competitive in every game, instilled some toughness, handled adversity and had to fight through a black cloud of uncertainty, on what sanctions loom. We could of easily been 10-2 but being a coach myself, it's not how you start it's how you finish. The finished product, we won't know for a couple more years. I'd say by 2013, at least we should start to climb back up. I like this class but if we can sway a couple big dogs, i'm defenitely going to be loving it. With 3 QB's coming in, surely we can develop one of them to perform on the level of Dorsey, if not our misery will only continue. Our QB play has not been very good the last 8 years. We've had flashes but that's it! The second thing we really need to get back to, is depth of talent. We used to have talent stock piled and as all of us have seen, our depth is way below the water line, especially on defense. Third, we have to have a dominate De-line again, it sets the tone for the whole defense. It makes our Lb's & CB's look good. As it it stands right now, unless we get some love this coming week, from recruiting, we are still going to be short of dominating talent up front. We have Chick, who I think is going to be dominate but the rest haven't shown to much. We have good coaches but you still need some talent (difference makers) to get you to the next level. Most good teams have the same things in common, One good D-lineman, one good, LB and one good player in the secondary, a Qb that can manage a game and a WR or Rb that is the go to guy. If you think about it out of your 22 starters, we're talking about 6 guys that are head and shoulders, just better players. There the ones that are going to give you a chance to be on a national stage. We probably have 2 players, that have the potential to be defined as difference makers, at this point.

CGNC

Six - nope - not if we haven't been out in a little while. He knows. And gets mad. If we go and see him regularly, then there is a big greeting. People think horses have no personality but they do - U know that tho

CaneRock

Damn, this Howard kid put FSU on blast:

"Uhhh...I mean I wouldn't say I too much like Tallahassee, you know, it's a party city. You know uhhh, their's some people about business, you know uhhh, they have a lot of coaches with a lot of diversity but you know, it's a lotta partyin' that goes...gooooes around down there...ya' know (picture it in a pimp voice). I'm not to easily influenced but at the same time you know, that's what you're gonna be livin' around, so I'm not to really to sure about that."

Now He had some positive things to say out of that context, but still, if He signs with UF, I can imagine what they'll be playing over the loud-speakers at Doak Campbell next season..."Party Like A Rock Star"!

CGNC

The pro bowl before the super bowl is just dumb imo

Posted by: UMike | January 26, 2012 at 01:09 PM

I agree. Was it always that way pr has the regular season gotten longer and overlapped it? Can't remember

CGNC

^^or

Ohio_Cane

I'll say this, if we get TH, I don't care who else Golden pulls outside of who we already have committed. That would be sweet, sweet victory.

PS - Still not holding my breath. ;-)

Ohio_Cane

CaneSport - w/ Schiano expected 2 go UM in gd shape 4 Hamilton & just set up Leonte Carroo 4 visit 2! Go Canes! Check it out: http://bit.ly/A9JMha

This has NCAA violations written all over it! NCAA licking their chops right about now reading canespace! lol

I remember the drew kid getting in trouble with some former georgia players talking to him, i think one of em' was cane hater David Pollack.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

I think they just need to get former canes doing their thang, working out, walking around campus etc. and tour guide be like "And this is where them former players work out all the time, oh hey Ray, hey Ed!" , i'm sure them recruits gonna be like "danggg! that's what's up!

It'll be similar to a commercial ESPN once did with former Duke players just hanging out around campus.

Florida is still the team to beat, after the visit then we'll talk!

However, we are definitely looking good, it has to be between us and the turds now. Damn we're neck and neck with the turds with a lot of recruits just for this last week of recruiting alone.

Is Tracy Howard that big of a get for everyone?

Is he the second coming of Patrick Johnson?

I'm more concerned about getting some DLineman, OLineman, LBs, TE and a legit QB

Build from the trenches on out, have a strong base first

Ya, secondary was a problem b/c think about who was out there. A reject from Wake Forest and a fast kid that couldn't cover Brian London

Bush, Davis, Dortch, Gunter, Hope, Jenkins - they're coming as well to help in the secondary

UMike

Size...idk if he is the second coming of PJ/PP, but I do think it is important to get the top recruit in our own backyard and we have secondary issues..i dont think it will break this class however

UpNorthCane27

Well this is me doing a Herb Kirkstreit....

Not so fast right back at you......loll

With Darius visiting and now his teamate Leonte Caroo a wideout i think puts us in the drivers seat, we will be getting their committs come NSD.

Questions For the Chat:

- When can we expect a rough 2-deep depth chart?

Posted by: LB | January 26, 2012 at 08:14 AM

Tonight for the LIVE chat. That is what Brandon Odoi from caneinsider.com is going to focus on.

Texascane

It is not a recruiting violation for recruits to meet anyone who is on campus during their visit. It is a violation for them to meet up with them outside of the official visit.

I remember during the 2010 Pro Bowl practices...the recruits met up with McKinney when the pros visited campus...and it was the weekend before signing day...

LB

Ryan Williams!

Ohio_Cane

Golden at Dwyer today

SOUP

I can tell U that there are several NFLU Canes that are in Coral Gables working out at Camp Swasey. They are not there to intentionally meet recruits but as the recruits tour the weight room they may just happen to be there. I'm jus sayin...

SOUP

Ryan Williams!

Posted by: LB | January 26, 2012 at 02:26 PM

This has been another shameless plug by LB.

Six

Again, unneeded sweating of Tyriq

For the whole announcement thing that he wants to do at his school, even though he did it on national television - wouldn't you want to do that as well? Maybe in front of a gym full of students or in the library in front of a bunch of local cameras/writers/papers?

This is the time for the spotlight to be on the kid, his one shining moment. Can't tell me the majority of people on here wouldn't want the same when they were 18

Take your free visits. Be treated like a king 5 times

Is Tracy Howard that big of a get for everyone?

Posted by: Six | January 26, 2012 at 02:10 PM

Dumb question: YES!

herbieibis

Lb,
I think he can be along with Chick. I've been waiting for Armstrong to be one of those guys but there has been no consistency and on offense with the early departures, the only it guy right now would be Henderson, if he gets healthy. The Rb position is good not great, with Miller leaving and the WR position is a toss-up, who knows.

you got it Mr. Sean Spence is a beast.... Darius hamilton will be rocking that green and orange if he knows whats best for him. And if his teammate can ball them bring him along also i have no problem with that.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

I am nervous now in a good way, obviously it's wishful thinking but with all the top notched uncommitted recruits visiting this weekend and one more addition in Leonte Caroo, if they all chooses to sign with Miami, wouldn't that go over the max limit of scholly canes can give? I mean we have 8 EE's, so that means out of 31, 23 will sign their letter of intent come feb. 1st, making space for 2 more?

Darius Hamilton
Leonte Caroo
Leonard Williams
Antonio Crawford
Josh Harvey-Clemons
Tracy Howard

I see atleast 3 possible signees from the list i gave and there is probably more i missed out on.

3G Cane

Wouldn't he be devastated to go to another yr of preparatory school? I mean he is coming from a junior college, no doubt he'll be frustrated to do the process again.

Yeah he did, he teamed with our own boy Taylor Gad-bwah! It's a french thing. lol

Hassan

A few points to make

1. read manny's article about Howard it says that UF worked harder for him? WTF PAUL WILLIAMS, what a douche lol Paul Williams had a 5th string RB playing CB last year he should have lived at Miramar if I was Al Golden I would take this guy in the office and wear him out. Then make him run 100's til he died. Once he dies I would call up Ronde Barber who is due to retire and ask him to come be the new DB coach. Ronde can run a clinic on press coverage the old Tampa 2 that the Canes invented in the 80's. Anyone else like my idea? Ronde For DB Coach!!!


Speaking of Buc's coaches does Schiano get the DL coach from USF he has done a hell of a job there and is a former cane.

Hassan

Northrupp update


He is visiting Clemson this weekend, probably will have his parents staying free in a hotel til he graduates from there lol


He says that he is tired of hearing the the Canes coaches and wants to get away.

Wow sounds like a damn ex gf of mine. You show too much love, nto enough love lol what the hell do these kids want? lol can't figure them out.


UMike

Hassn, re: Howard..I wonder if that had something to do with us not being in it initially, maybe there were reasons why Golden stayed away, or didnt push as hard..I cant see Golden being out worked for the best prospect in our backyard, especially with our need at DB

Ohio_Cane

Isn't Tyriq McCord announcing today? Or did he do that already?
