I'm not getting why we're using a ship on Lockskey, to be perfectly honest. I'm not a recruiting genius and I support the coaches, but honestly to me this is a head scratcher. Maybe some body can help me out with this, it just seems this is a guy we could have waited on and if nobody better came along then offer him.

Canesteeler

Pens smacked that ras. Go Canes hoops,

Old Skool

If Locksley is going to have to go the prep route, we're not using a ship on him until next year.

Terrance Sullivan

86 Dick Enberg would be proud of your Oh My reference. Nice. Yes the Pimp and Crew are doing the Damn Thing. I love it.

Da U N Houston

Lockley will be coming in 2014, he will not be using. 2013 scholie......

The Juco DT (T Brooks) moved up his announcement. (Guess AG's train is getting ready to depart)

UMike

Wow..we're closing out with guys like Lockly and Edwards..NICE! lol

Ohio_Cane

Lockley will go Prep and won't use a scholarship this year. It basically gives us a jump on next yr with one LOI already signed

WWIM

Please understand that Al Golden does NOT take recruits for da hell of it. Everybody on board is on cuz he WANTED em. He doesn't look at how many stars are besides their names, he'd rather look at their film. So everybody on board has showed him something.

Johnson decommitted due to uncertainty of sanctions.

"I was thinking about the sanction possibilities they were having when Randy Shannon was there."

LMAO!
Yeah, with the morale the way it was under RS, it did feel like we were on sanctions.

laquinton

yeah. he should have just said well Beau Sandland pretty much took my spot. tampa Jesuit.. why go to this school ? Remember that OLB when Shannon was here was commited and Golden didn't take him.. ended at GT.. bum

The 900 followers is on Twitter, which is basically thanks to OhioCane who helps me run that arm of Canespace. Do U know how much trust U have to have in someone to basically run your Twitter account?

YEAH LOTS!

WWIM

86,

My client will need a Twitter bonus!!!

LA3

THE "U"! I am pulling for RAVENS but think 49er's will win.
Regardless of who wins, a member of the 2001 National Championship Canes will win 1st Super Bowl ring. Ed Reed & Mount McKinnie or Frank Gore. University of Miami leads all schools with seven players on Super Bowl rosters. Bmore - Ray Lewis, Reed, McKinnie, IR Berry, IR Streeter 49ers - Gore, Gooden.
It's all about the U! Hopefully Ray Ray and fellas can get a "W".

kenyon19ypr

Jamie Newberg just reported Denver has a spot at Miami and will choose between ARK, FSU and the Canes. Faaantastic.

mi@mic@ne

Ray epitomizes the roots of the cane mystique ...go ravens

UpNorthCane

Miami back in it for Kirkland according to Tim Harris Jr........ Fellas cout him in this class and count 6 in we gonna close shopppp

Old Skool

LaQuinton That's a different Jesuit. I believe the one you're referring to is Belen Jesuit in Miami.

Regarding Tampa Jesuit. Vinny helps with the offense and his son is the QB.

This will only be fantastic if he chooses the U. If he doesnt im scratching my head.

LB

I'm not one to continually give a Keef update, but is too hilarious not to pass up.

From Canesinsight Board:
"In another weird turn, #FAU cut short Atlantic DT Keith Bryant's visit, sending him home for not being serious. fauowlaccess.com/articles/133/f…
8:36pm - 2 Feb 13"

LOL

Us Against- It's somewhat sarcastic haha

I don't know Travis. I don't know what the real story is, but let's say this is the case.

Golden encourages you to go somewhere else because they've signed Beau Sandland and its doubtful you'll get the early playing time you're expecting.

Do you really expect to hear a 17 year old football player say: "They didn't expect I would be good enough to beat out another incoming tight end"?

Nah. He's going to make himself look good. Be the decider, the man in charge.

Old Skool

Knowing that Keith is even taking visits to FAU makes me less interested in him. A talent like him could feign interest to get a trip to Oregon, USC, San Diego State, Hawaii.

When you live in Delray and want to get a free trip to Florida Atlantic. That's someone who doesn't set his sights very high.

CGNC

"On Larkin's last second shot the ball hit the right side of the rim and bounced off right to Johnson, who then calmly tipped the ball up and in to stun the home crowd."


Yessssssssssss. Because they like to jingle keys in the faces of opposing teams fans (or at least they do at the football games).

CGNC

Pens > Caps.

Just sayin. Lol

Yes sir! Sid has found his groove - he looked pre-concussion to me last couple of games. LOL Kunitz with a hattie.

mi@mic@ne

bunch of nasty individuals on that ravens d .... they out to do you harm ... lol

Ohio_Cane

Old School, I agree to a point. This visit was to try to help his friend get a scholarship to FAU. They wanted it to be a package deal including Keef. He's obviously not going there.

Ohio_Cane

^^ I don't fault him too much for that, honestly.

orange 'n green in the vein

Oh man! Keef's going to lose the recruit troll of the season award for his signing class right at the end with this tragic turn of event!

Hope he can play football if he signs with Miami and stars in one of those awesome weight lifting videos that have nothing to do with my evaluation of your ability to kick some jabronie right in the teeth on the football field.

If he signs somewhere else I'm looking forward to him being an even bigger troll than he is already, either way, this one's for Keef.

HawaiiCane

Ed Reed!!!!

We'll definitely have to negotiate before Wednesday, you know NSD is a contract by itself.

He must want to party and/or get some action with some old friends from HS or something. No other explanation makes any sense.

TJL

fracking delay with the power...#52 will go in the locker room during the delay and get the deer spray!

/\/\/\

LMFAO!

I'm talking to SOUP about your next contract Monday TJL.

The Dude

Ray Lewis knows who killed the lights, but he's not talking.

TonyCane

When the lights went out I thought that the Undertaker was about to appear.

HawaiiCane

Frank Gore!!!

WWIM

I can't believe Golden has one of these tweener players playing in the super bowl.

WWIM

Wit this "new age recruiting" I wonder how a player like pierce slipped between the cracks¿¿¿¿¿

mi@mic@ne

you get the feeling the ravens are like the big brother

kenyon19ypr

WWIN- Golden didn't let him slip through the cracks.
Hmmmmmmm..... Anyone else a little less concerned about our class?

WWIM

Kenyon,

But he was a tweener. Lol

mi@mic@ne

ray goes out a winner ....its a cane thang

TonyCane

And Tommy Streeter and Damien Berry get rings!

The Dude

If Ed Reed retires tonight he is in the HOF. McKinnie needs to do it for a few more years.

The Dude

I am so happy with tonights outcome. So happy for #52.

TonyCane

Me too. Good to see Ray end his career in storybook fashion.

The Dude

Who is the next Cane you would like to see get a ring?

The Dude

I pick Andre Johnson.

UpNorthCane

Frank gore and andre johnson are the next canes for me in that order.....

Ohio_Cane

5 Canes with a Super Bowl ring tonight!! Wooooo!!

So happy for Ray to go out like the best LB ever is supposed to. Also for Ed Reed. Now they can't say "best safety ever without a ring" ala Lebron!

Always great to be a Miami Hurricane!

Ohio_Cane

Jim Nantz with an Orange and Green tie. He knows... He knows.

BEERicane

Do we get to claim Bernard Pierce? That would make 6 (1 honorary) canes since current cane Al Golden brought him to Temple?

Ohio_Cane

BEER, I'll allow it! Lol

BEERicane

Ohio, Lebron got his before Ed. Just sayin...

BEERicane

Who here thinks Reed should retire? I, for one, do. Ridiculous career. Thanks for repping the U, ER!!

kenyon19ypr

WWIN- That's my point haha Golden developed a solid NFL player with a tweener at Temple. We're good!

TonyCane

The Dude, as a long suffering Dolphins fan, I pick Lamar Miller.

Ohio_Cane

Who is the next Cane you would like to see get a ring?

Posted by: The Dude | February 03, 2013 at 10:55 PM
----------------------------------------------

I pick my favorite Cane! ANDRE JOHNSON!!

WWIM

Kenyon,

I know but for some reason a lot of our fans don't get it, they think it's all about stars***** LMAO!!!!!

WWIM

"Throw that owl in the garbage bruh" - Keith Bryant

LMAO

Tonycane

Willie, I would take a more balanced look. Star ranking do bear weight on a team's overall potential. It's not the only thing, and subpar recruiting can be overcome by great coaching, the right transfers, and juco talents.

Terrance Sullivan

Ravens baby. Happy for the 5 Canes who getting rings. Canes reppin hard. I do feel bad for Gore and T. Good.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

From Peter Ariz..

**Alex Collins will be announcing his decision tomorrow night at 10 P.M. on a Fox Sports television special. An interesting piece of information that I got a little while ago is that South Plantation Head Doug Gatewood will not be making the trip with him. This could mean nothing, but I just thought it was noteworthy. Collins will be flying to Atlanta tomorrow with teammate John Franklin (FSU commit) and Franklin's father. Franklin will also be featured on tomorrow night's special. I expect Collins to choose Miami, but he is not telling anybody what his choice will be. Franklin told me that Collins has not told him anything and he has no clue what his decision will be.

**Before this weekend, Miami had all the momentum with Jaynard Bostwick and someone with close knowledge of the situation had told me that he would be "completely shocked" if Bostwick didn't choose Miami, but that was before his trip to Gainesville. The Gators believe they have pulled even with Miami after a good visit, but we will see if the late surge will be enough. This would be a huge loss for Miami considering Bostwick was all 'Cane for nearly a year and a half.

**In an opposite scenario to Bostwick's, there has been a lot of positive momentum for Miami with Keith Bryant over the last few days. Two separate people told me today that not only does Bryant's mother want him at Miami, but his whole family wants him here badly. A week ago, I would have told you Bryant was all FSU, but now I'm starting to believe he could pull a shocker and choose the 'Canes on Wednesday. Never a dull moment in the recruitment of Keith Bryant.

**Miami picked up a commit from 2013 ATH Ryheem Lockley from Saluda, Virginia today. It is almost a lock that he will need to go Prep so this can basically be counted as a 2014 commitment. Lockley is a good looking athlete at his size and projects as a receiving TE. I can see him being used in the role the coaches envisioned former commit Travis Johnson was going to play.

UMike

Also from Ariz...

Just exchanged messages with a person who has been in contact with Kirkland's family and said that while Miami gave Kirkland another opportunity to "commit" yesterday, he told them he would still be waiting till Signing Day, but that Kirkland still wanted Miami as an option. Well apparently Miami has a spot available for him now and he is very much back in the mix. We'll see if the drama of the past 3 days comes back to hurt Miami

Jack

Ravens! Yahoooo

Jack

Awesome win! Canes. B bll is FOR REAL!!

UMike

From reading on a few places, there is a RUMOR that Thomas may be a silent to FSU.

UMike

Collins mom is on board 100% with Miami..and from what I hear if it were up to her, he would have decided already. Dont like the last comment..

She wants me to go to Miami because she’s a fan of the school and because it’s close to home, so she’ll be able to come to all of my games,” Collins says before adding, “It’s ultimately going to be my decision. She’ll just end up being ok with whatever school I go to and support me.”

“I would hate to upset her, but it’s just something I have to do for me.”

UMike

Collins is actually in Atlanta for a Cheer leading competition lol

LB

Just some food for thought, Spacers...

...the freaking out has reached epic levels, despite having two new TE's already on campus.

Relax. It's the product on the field that you should be worrying about. Recruiting is an obvious strength of Golden's, from the development at Temple (Wilkerson) to the production from the 2011-2012 classes (Bush, Duke, Howard, E. Johnson, etc.).

I do think that there is a lot of good defensive talent, and it would be a shame to miss out on them (Thomas, Bostwick, Burns, Carter, etc.). However, I'm not crazy enough to believe that missing out on one will lead to the total demise of the UM program.

Golden gets who he wants. Get on board or leave. With a schedule like ours next year, you best get on board.

LB

By the way, Keef should have taught all of you to pay little attention to the moods of recruits. Some are diehards from the beginning (Duke, Dobard), some intelligently go through the process (Olsen, Chickillo), and some wait until the end (Howard).

Keef went to FAU, and they chucked him off campus for his keefery. He could also keef his way to UM or Mars. There's an equal-keefed chance of both.

"Schools are pushing hard. National Signing Day is Wednesday. Collins is being asked to decide two days early and admits he’s torn."

"Being asked"?


Canesfan_1

What's the final word? Everything I'm reading elsewhere we're really trending down in these last few days

Collins - no
Grace - no
Thomas - no
Kirkland - no
Bryant - no
Bostwick - no
Edwards - no
A few others I can't remember

Now, they all could be wrong, but what is the consensus here? It just seems things have really gone south the last few days.

86Cane

Posted by: Tonycane | February 04, 2013 at 12:32 AM

See: Kansas State.

UMike

Ok..these are my latest predictions..not real sure on a few..but here they are...

Kirkland - Miami
Collins - Miami
Edwards - Miami
Brooks - Miami
Thomas - FSU
Grace - Louisville
Bostwick - Florida
Bryant - FSU
Robinson - LSU

Am I missing anyone else?

UMike

If Kirkland goes through all that hassle just to keep his offer and doesn't pick Miami, BTW coaches are gonna look like shyt! lol

LB

Grace picking Louisville? Are you serious? Don't you think that may be overreacting a touch?

UMike

LB..I was just about to change that...his friendship with Howard and Lewis will win out I think..so I am changing that back to Miami..BUT..Louisville IS a possibility
