Sweet. Loved seeing the Jack and the 3 other high school student athletes sign grant in aid with us and Hopefully look forward to them signing loi with us in February and believe they plan to early enroll in January and participate in Spring Practice. 34 days until Season Opener Kickoff. Go Canes.

A bit early, but Brad Kayaa projected as the Number One overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft: http://walterfootball.com/draft2017.php

That's mean that he was soo successful at the U that he left as Junior, I'm rooting for this kid

Terrance Sullivan

I don't see BK15 leaving early.

Go Canes

Hope that prediction comes true!!

Unlike how things have been in the past, we will have a very capable REDSHIRTED freshman waiting to take over.

Lur-ker

You better look at Cook's 2 TDs vs UM, they came outta the same 3 x 1 spread formation. A big back like Gus probably gets 12-15 yards at most on those plays.

And you can call those offenses "silly" all you want, that doesn't change the fact that 2 "silly" offenses played for a NC.

Posted by: CaneRock | August 01, 2015 at 04:19 PM

CR, I have some bullet points re: "spread" offenses and regarding FSU and other teams using it, but too lazy to put my thoughts together now. When I get to it, you'll get what I'm saying

I don't see it either. Only possibly is after his junior year, even then. He still has a lot to learn, and he still needs more physical development.

Go Canes A lot of Athletic Programs gonna do that. As I said that weeks ago.

As long as their lone win aint agin the U!

Dem Canes!!!

Native dropping that wisdom!

His Royal Dudeness

Teams just need to make sure their best players are wearing the year number like Miami w/ Kaaya. Lol. Show me the money!!!

His Royal Dudeness

Jack Allison should be number 18 and 19 and Brad should swich to 16 next year.

Terrance Sullivan

Well I think we good with Kaaya and Burns. #15 and #1. Just make sure whoever wearing #1 is good since that will be a number we use permanently lol.

2017 & 19' I'ma cop those Willie Williams,Kosar, & Merriweather throwbacks.

A lotta bang for my buck in 19'.

Next year we can rep Todd Seavers!

CaneRock

Thanks Terrance, I must've been thinking about His NFL days.

Terrance Sullivan

U welcome Rock. Yes Sir we can rep Todd Sievers and Albert Bentley baby. and we always can rock Jesse Armstead and Roscoe Parrish who rocked #1 and their are other famous Canes who rocked it just some easy ones.

CaneRock

Huh, lookin' back at that 99' schedule, and replaying those games in my mind...we should've gone 11-2 that season! SMDH @ Chafee Fields & David Garrard.

Rousey needs to stop runnin' from Cyborg and make it happen.

It's not true?

Imagine the number of posts on here this weekend if the two had decommited instead of moving forward 100% with their promise to sign here.

100 to 1?

200 to 1?

It is what it is. There are people here who do nothing but look for a way to post something, anything negative every chance they get.

The two jewels of our 2016 class sign their financial agreements?

Virtually nothing.

UMike

It was also the weekend when blogging is traditionally slow. Still no reason to take a shot at people... an unprovoked shot.

Also, that does NOT mean they are "moving forward 100% with their promise to sign here". This increases our chances, but does not make it 100%... see D Cook.

It is a good move though, especially this early. We have a good LB group in this class and Allison looks to be the real deal. How Pinckney is not a universal 4-star is beyond me.

Tyler Byrd will be a name to watch, good chance he flips to TN.

UMike

To add to that...with Rasul decommited there was barely a peep from the haters.

UMike

Go Canes...was it you that said you might try to make the UNC game?

Go Canes

This is nothing like the Dalvin Cook situation. He was never committed and was always a long shot at best.

These guys from what I read had nothing but singular focus on getting here early and don't appear to be wavering at all.

I've always wanted to get back to a Tar Heels game. I just need to see if my schedule will permit it this year.

UMike

I agree Cook was different and these guys all look solid..just saying that financial agreement is not 100%.

Any tips for a UNC trip, Ive never been there.

🐜🌀

Yall get started early.

Totally agree. He's poised to become the next Hank or Hurns.

Tons of talent that comes together late as his maturity, route running, focus (and draft status) start to come together.

Terrance Sullivan

Just play and coach as one team, one body, one mind, the old saying everyone is on a string. Just win baby. That is all 33 days until our Canes Season Opener Kickoff and 32 days until I am back in my second home of South Florida. Boom.

No sold on Braxton Berrios/FSU TD drop and Stacy Coley /Burgess Hit

CaneRock

Seems to me that Waters has peaked out as a WR. If He can't beat out Berrios &/or Lewis at the slot, then IDK. Probably should've moved em' to DB.

One kid I'm curious to see though, is Cager...reminds me of Streeter.

30CINCO

I think Scott will be Kaaya's go to. They established a good connection last year before he got hurt according to reports and seem to have picked it back up this year.

UMike

Im thinking Lewis or Berrios. Lewis is very consistent and him and Berrios seem to had a good connection and trust. IDC who it is as long as were scoring lol...to much talent to be reserved

CaneRock

CINCO...agree with you on Scott...only thing with Him though, is He hasn't really done anything since what, 2012? Might take em' awhile to catch back up to gameday speed. We'll see.

CaneRock

At the end of the day, it's imperative that Coley rebounds from last year. I think He will, which should make everybody else's job easier.

Brad Kaaya tries to manage expectations at Miami

There is an anecdote Brad Kaaya tells about Miami, one he relies on when people start asking about legacies.

As a boy growing up in California, Kaaya remembers seeing all the green-and-orange shirts around town when the Hurricanes arrived to play Nebraska in the 2002 Rose Bowl. When he played college football video games, he always played as Miami. There are still pictures of him somewhere in his house wearing Miami sweaters in high school.

"I’ve always loved Miami," he says simply.

#CFBrank #GoCanes

His Royal Dudeness

Al said Kaaya was in great shape and that he put on weight. Does anyone know what weight he's at?

His Royal Dudeness

Owens is the favorite to start at Sam. Grace is for sure the Will. Kirby at Mike and McCord and AQM will rotate and sometimes be on the field at the same time, with Thomas I assume. Jenkins will play DT. This pass rush should be filthy. Hopefully they 1 gap.

j.w.

It's been such a long time. . . .
Trying to get excited about the upcoming season hasn't been easy this time, while it's nice hearing the players tell us things are different I just have to see it this time. Unfortunate that I see we are still going through the "everything is awesome vs. everything is awful" battle,the truth is everything is relative and nobody knows what to expect. Good to see we're getting recruits, hoping they stick. Glad to see Kaaya getting a ton of great press, sad to see the national and ACC press doesn't see more stand-outs on the rest of the team than I do. Hoping Sun Life is no longer No Life Stadium, the photos look pretty good. Lastly, glad to know the probation era is over, don't want to hear that one again ever.

UMike

I might of read wrong, but I thought I read where Kaaya lost weight

I think that said from when he got on campus. Got to campus around 230. Got down to 209 or so for last year. Put on good weight now. I bet he plays at 215-220 this year.

Posted by: UMike | August 03, 2015 at 12:49 PM

I think you are wrong. Maybe during last season he lost weight? I'm almost certain Al said he somewhere in the 220s. Grace is supposed to play at 220+ also. It was assigned to them.

UMike

Dude...I will have to look..I thought I read he lost weight and got more toned or something. I just remember thinking how did he lose weight when he looked thin lol

Posted by: UMike | August 03, 2015 at 12:56 PM

Thanks. Let us know.

UMike

A full year in a college conditioning program, which Kaaya didn’t have entering last year, can only help. After arriving on campus last May at 6-foot-4 and close to 230 pounds, he slimmed down to 205 by opening night. He said he has added 10 pounds of “good weight” since then. He cautions he won’t be like “Tim Tebow, running over any middle linebackers any time soon,” but said he felt sturdy enough last year at 205-210.

^^^^^

It happens. I wouldn't sell Berrios short.

Go Canes

I also read He got here heavy and shed a lot of non muscle weight during the season. Got down to 210 I think.

Now he's added the right kind of weight which hopefully will make him a little more mobile and add even more zip to his ball.

His Royal Dudeness

He looks like he should be at 230+.

Btw that 97 ranking for Kaaya is absurd.

Ask the head coach of 99% of all D1 schools in the country if they'd rather have him or some o-lineman, tight end or corner ranked 57, 47 or even 27.

Which one will have a greater impact in more games next year.

We lost 13 guys to the NFL (draft + free agent) from a 6-7 team. Of course, we could go 10-2 + but sure seems unlikely to me.
