New Calvin Ridley Article on Rivals
Once A Cane Lean, Ridley Changing Things Up
-He'll attend same school as Shawn Burgess Becker
-Considering almost 20 schools
-Says he doesn't know who he would have picked on the day he was supposed to announce
-He did say that "Miami's been in front," but that that's no longer the case. "Now I'm open," he said.
-When asked what had changed: "I don't know," he says. "I just thought about it."
-"At first we were like we should commit, but then our family members told us it wasn't a good idea, it was too early. And friends in college said it's too early."
-Visiting Bama in March/April
-Says he doesn't know if he's going to release a Top 5 or not, just going with the flow
-Ridley says he and Burgess-Becker "always" talk about their college options but that they don't want to make any information from those conversations public.
-Will announce around or on signing day

After watching the videos, the 5 guys I was really impressed with were Darrion Owens, Courtel Jenkins, Kiy Hester (Will be a LB when his UM career is over), Trent Harris, and Trayone Gray......I thought Trent Harris actually looked better than Chad Thomas......Courtel Jenkins is Vince Wilforks mini me!

I think the best guy in this class is Darrion Owen.....He's fast and lay the boom!!! Can't wait to watch these kids develop.

This is so true, and not just in sports either.

Rand Stevens

....and Jax, make no mistake....Larranaga is the best coach the U has had since Johnson left. He is going to kill it when we get some shooters in here. Very, very excited about the future of men's basketball.

The Dude

RCCF,

I agree with you but sometimes its hard not to do. Like for instance, if no one has seen Jermaine Grace, you could say, he's kind of like Jon Vilma or he reminds me of Jon Vilma. Where peeps get into trouble is when they say Jermaine Grace is the next Jon Vilma.

The Dude

I also hate it when people compare players to other players of their same race. Like LeBron and MJ 'cause their both black. LeBron is a completely different kind of player.

The Dude

Or any mobile black QB is like Mike Vick and any small fast WR is Wes Welker or Wayne Chrebet before that.

Mountain Cane

Lurker is the new RCCF.

The Dude

Lol, Mtn Cane. What's sad is it took me a minute to get that, lol.

Rand Stevens

Yes, and I hope we become more of a basketball school. In reality, we are a small private institution with an on campus arena.....that makes the future brighter for Bball the pressure maintaining a football program places on small institutions.

j.w.

Back from Disneyland, proudly flashed the U on California Screamin' and Space Mountain. Best part was getting my kid to do it as well.

Some coach will fall in love with Henderson, I wish that coach all the luck in the world. Super athlete but seems to lack desire.

Dude, I'd be willing to bet once Seantrel is playing for $ he'll excel and work hard. I don't think he liked being a student and "playing for free"

I am with the Dude on this one. Loads of talent, lack of desire. I hope I am wrong but my guess is he will be out the league by 2018. Again hope I am wrong.

They could wave the 10 second rule inside 3 minutes. Lets remember these kids arent paid (supposedly) so fewer plays equals fewer hits equals fewer injuries.

I dont think Henderson's career was that bad, just think he has All American potential and never got there.

UMike

I just realized that the 2015 QB Miami recently offered, Nick Tiano, plays like 10 minutes from me. I will make sure to visit and scout some of his games. The school he goes to is the only one in the area that produces any real talent. Nice private school.

LB

"I dont think Henderson's career was that bad, just think he has All American potential and never got there."

Agreed. He was a very good sixth lineman. But he'll be #1 forever in Susan's heart.

Defenses also get hurt when they get blocked low -- and high, sometimes. Probably ought to get rid of blocking.

To be fair to the offense, though, you'd want to switch to flag football.

And really, y'know, sometimes a guy just twists his knee wrong while he's running and BAM! there goes the ACL.

I think CFB should just switch to playing Madden football. The NFL can start its own minor league and be done with the NCAA once and for all.

LB

I'm going to try to take a crack at ranking our 10 best players. I'm not including freshmen or redshirt freshmen (sorry gazers).

10. Stacy Coley. I'm a big fan of his potential. Some drops early on, but evolved into an offensive dynamo when Duke went down. I'd rank him higher if he had another year on his belt.
9. Jon Feliciano. Steady and versatile. Beat out a ton of good players for starting time. Started 33 games in the past three years (8 as a redshirt freshman).
8. Rayshawn Jenkins. Quietly started 14 games (12 last year) and finished 4th in tackles (46). 3 Int's. Expect him to break out this year.
7. Tracy Howard. I SLIGHTLY ranked him higher because of his evolution and potential on special teams. Extremely productive in comparison to his freshman outing.
6. Tyriq McCord. The very definition of underappreciated and underutilized. He is the best pass rusher on our team and should be on the field every down. His low sack totals are misleading.
5. Deon Bush. When healthy, there is no one who can impact the defense like Bush. A violent tackler and extremely smart player. I also expect him to break out.
4. Shane McDermott. Nobody gives him any respect at all. He missed the first two games at center and still was 3rd team All-Conference. A beast.
3. Ereck Flowers. If it weren't for the two terrors above, I'd have zero issues putting him at #1. Watch his film. If Morris was sacked, it wasn't his fault. He started all 13 games last year, and I totally expect him to be the next premiere lineman into the NFL.
2. Denzel Perryman. Imagine D'Onofrio's defense without him. Now he's a senior. Productive, instinctive, and nationally underrated.
1. Duke Johnson. Enough said.

Looks like another hidden gem like Kaaya. Let us know!

CaneRock

Barry Jackson:

### UM quarterback Kevin Olsen said he was told the quarterback job will be an open competition. But departing Stephen Morris said Thursday he has “no doubt” Ryan Williams will win the job.

Morris, who is training for the draft at Pete Bommarito’s Performance Center in North Miami Beach, said Williams will surprise people next season. “You don’t need a rocket arm to be a great quarterback,” Morris said. But Williams has improved his arm strength in the past year, which has coaches encouraged.

### On Monday, we mentioned you will be hearing a lot this year about five-star Coconut Creek Monarch prospect Calvin Ridley, rated the second-best receiver in the 2015 class. Ridley told canesport.com today that even though he was once leaning toward UM, that is no longer the case, without giving a specific reason. But UM remains one of many schools under consideration.

That's a pretty nice list LB. Dorsett can probably kick someone from the top 10 but that's a good list.

Question: A lot here make comments about our lack of development. Seems like when players play well, it was all talent, but they play bad, it was the coaching. At what point does the coaching get credit for the development of those on this list?

Ohio_Cane

30, with this fanbase? Don't hold your breath.

UMike

30... Thats a good question. As you know I am not a fan of some coaches, and I think there has a been a lack of development. I cant really think of anyone who didnt come in with lots of hype, but steadily got better. Im sure there are some, but none stick out to me.

UMike

Of LB's list, I think only Jon Feliciano came in with no hype and got better. Jenkins shouldn't be on he list IMO.

30CINCO

Would'nt Perryman fall in that bucket of players who came in with no hype and left a better player? According to the "rankings" at least.

canezilla

I WORK NEXT TO MONARCH HIGH SCHOOL,ILL GO HOLLA AT CALVIN AT LUNCH TIME.

UMike

30... I thought of that, but if I remember correctly most Miami fans thought Perryman would be good although he was a 3-Star.

30CINCO

How about Gaines? Went from 58 total tackles his first year, to 83 tackles last year.

30CINCO

What you you consider "hype"?

UMike

For example Mike Smith is a 3-star on most sites, but most Miami fans think he will be great and one of the best players in this class.

Im not saying the staff hasnt helped some kids though, just not a lot imo lol

Terrance Sullivan

Good List but Dorsett should be on the list.

30CINCO

How about Gunter?

UMike

Gaines is a decent player who gained experience..Gaines would be a back-up on mos other teams, if even on the roster. By hype I mean a high ranking, or fans expect him to be good. Everyone knew Duke, Coley and Flowers would be good no matter their coaches.

UMike

I will give you gunter, he has improved and wasnt a highly hyped player.

30CINCO

That's a slippery slope though. When someone like Chick comes in with hype, and he doesn't live up to expectations, coaching is the first word out of everyone's mouth.

30CINCO

Ahh, so experience IS important!

UMike

Well shouldnt a LB's tackles go up after his freshman year? lol

UMike

I think Chick is the best example of lack of development. Unless you're a superstar or get injured, your freshman year shouldnt be your best year.

30CINCO

Well shouldnt a LB's tackles go up after his freshman year? lol

Posted by: UMike | February 14, 2014 at 09:53 AM
-----------------------------------------------
Not only should the tackles go up, but their play should improve with experience.

So it's a little puzzling when someone says' "next year, it will be the same thing"

dj moonbat

There is no way Coley is the tenth best player on the team. He was second on the team in scoring (9 all-purpose TDs) and second in receiving yards. And did it with flair.

On a team with a first-rate QB, people would already be talking Coley up as one of the nation's great WRs.

I gave the man a lot of grief early about the drops, but he kept shoving those words back down my throat all season long. Tasty.

LB

"At what point does the coaching get credit for the development of those on this list?"

I give Kehoe and Carroll all the credit in the world. Heck, I give Barrow credit for simply holding it together after all his woes.

UMike

It could also be more of kids being put in wrong positions rather then lack of "coaching them up". Just because Gaines made more tackles than his freshman year, doesnt mean he got so much better. He got more playing time which allowed for more tackles. Gaines shouldnt even seen the field at Miami, it wasnt so long ago a player like that wouldnt of even got an offer. But he sees the field because we have no one lse
