Thanks for posting the Hall link Calvin. I think his vision was most impressive. He rarely chose the wrong lane. He also was a good blend of size and speed with moves that will get him extra yards at the next level.

If he does committ and James/Miller play well this year, I would say that if we take another back (I can see us maybe only going with one this year) that guy will certainly not be afraid of competition since he would be 4th on the depth chart before competing with Hall.

86Cane

Soiler...nice CSROH logo U created. Love it.

I have an second anniversary feature planned for next week on 6/16 or 6/17. It will be good trust me.

From Manny from Hurtt we are taking 2RBs this year.

Congrats to all the inductees.
Out for the night, another week or so and I'll have a computer of my very own. Maybe then I can watch this "yutube" everyone speaks of and can make quality posts to be an inductee NEXT year!

DZ8,

I'm gonna try and go to the game up in Blacksburg too, since I live in Norfolk, VA. I'm gonna see if I can get a hook up with buying tickets from Alumni member that can get them for away games.

From www.hurricanesports.com:

After claiming the 100 and 200-meter NCAA East Region Championships in Greensboro, N.C. on May 30, the University of Miami's Murielle Ahoure has been named the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association South Region Track Performer of the Year.

Ahoure won the 100-meter regional title in record fashion as she crossed the line in 11.09 seconds, breaking the East Region and facility records in the process. The time currently holds as the second-best in the NCAA this season.

The 200-meter regional championship was won by the Bristow, Va. native in 23.09 seconds. However, Ahoure set her season and personal-best time in the preliminary heats with a time of 22.92 seconds, now standing at No. 6 in the nation.

The senior also anchored the women's 4x100 relay team that placed third in Greensboro, advancing to the NCAA Championships with a season-best time of 44.16 seconds.

"This really means a lot," said Ahoure. "Everything has fallen into place for me at Miami. I feel so blessed. I train with one of the best coaches in the world and I get to see one of my idols in Lauryn Williams everyday."

Right you are DZ8 but I think that at the end of the day Freshmen development will influence that and if Miller and James are both looking good and say McGee is really the only CB who looks like he can stay thier (since Reid and Kent are not locks for CB) I rather spend the extra scholarship there.

NavyCane4Life

Thanks 86! Yeah I've been really busy with Navy stuff. Anytime I get a chance, I check out the blog. I'll definitely be around the blog when the season starts. Today I was driving home here in Norfolk, VA and a guy passed me in a Ford Explorer VA license plates read "DM CANES" and he also had a Miami mini helmet dangling from his rearview mirror. I flashed the U at him, not sure if he saw. Miami Fans everywhere!

86,

I'll definitely be getting with CGNC again for tix to VT game.

More from www.hurricanesports.com:

University of Miami head coach Frank Haith’s 2009 men’s basketball signing class has been nationally ranked No. 19 by Scout and No. 24 by ESPN.

The Hurricanes’ heralded 2009 class is comprised of ESPNU 100 picks Durand Scott (New York, N.Y.), Garrius Adams (Apex, N.C.) and Donnavan Kirk (Detroit, Mich.), in addition to May signee Antoine Allen (Baltimore, Md.).

Scott’s signing in November marked the second-straight season Haith has secured a five-star player rated among Scout’s top-25 overall recruits and the third time for the Hurricanes this decade. Sophomore DeQuan Jones was a five-star recruit in 2008 and was the most lauded signee for Miami since McDonald’s All-American Darius Rice committed to the Hurricanes in 2000.

The 2009 class is also Haith’s second Top 25 recruiting class in five years at the helm of the Miami program. In 2005, he signed four four-star recruits – including recent graduates Jimmy Graham, Brian Asbury and Adrian Thomas (who returns for the Hurricanes in 2009-10) – for a class that was ranked No. 12 in the nation by Scout.

“Strong recruiting is the cornerstone for any successful program,” said Haith – named the Recruiter of the Year by Rivals in 2002. “I’m very excited with the quality of both talent and character we have coming in with the 2009 class. These are four outstanding young men, and I’m looking forward to seeing their development and contributions to this team.”

Also eligible for Miami in 2009-10 will be sophomore transfer Malcolm Grant (Brooklyn, N.Y.), a 6-1 point guard who sat out this season per NCAA rules after appearing in 29 games for Villanova in 2007-08, and Reggie Johnson (Winson-Salem, N.C.), a 6-9 redshirt freshman who grabbed a North Carolina 1A state championship record 23 rebounds en route to the team title and MVP honors.

Mother of Georgia’s No. 1 prospect would love to see twins stay together in college

Alec Ogletree is ranked as the nation's No. 1 safety by Rivals with 35 scholarship offers, but he says his twin brother may be more talented than him (AJC)
Newnan High’s Alec Ogletree is considered the state’s No. 1 college prospect and holds 35 early scholarship offers. He says his twin brother, Zander Ogletree, may be better than he is, and Zander has been mostly ignored by college scouts.

“The only reason I can think that I have all these offers and [my twin brother] doesn’t is because of height … because he can play, I mean, he’s really, really good ,” said Alec, who was heavily courted by Georgia coach Mark Richt during UGA’s Junior Day. His five early favorites are Miami, FSU, Alabama, UGA and Florida.

The football stars were born two minutes apart on Sept. 25, 1991. Alec has grown to 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, plays safety in high school, and has college coaches drooling with his presence. Zander (the older twin) stands 5-11 and 205 pounds, plays some mean linebacker, and is virtually unknown. Many college recruiting coordinators have yet to put it together that the state’s top prospect has a twin.

“Alec is more reserved, a little on the quiet side and is taller,” said Allyson Ogletree, mother of the twins. “Zander is more outgoing than Alec, he’s the class clown. He’s not as tall, but he’s [bulky] and faster. It has always been that way about both of my boys since birth.”


Zander Ogletree: Getting love from FSU and UGA, and that's about it. So far.
How do the brothers compare on the football field? “People say that Zander has a little better fundamentals, he is better at making tackles in the open field, and is more of a team leader,” the mom said. “Alec is pretty much known for his big hits that can turn a game around, and that’s what got him where he is today with colleges.”

While Alec has hogged the recruiting spotlight, his twin moves around quietly the background unnoticed. However, Zander has no complaints. “”I have no reason to get jealous. We play two different positions. Overall, we’re the same [in terms of talent]. We support each other. We don’t look at each other like ‘He’s the best or I’m the best.’”

“I can’t explain why he has all the offers, and I don’t. But it’s a good thing. I’m happy for my brother, and I know when my time comes, I’m going to get good looks from the colleges, too.”

All the attention from colleges for one son and very little for the other has put their mother in a tough position. But she is determined to have a positive outlook. “We don’t look at Alec’s [35 offers] being a downfall for Zander. We’ve told him whatever will be, will be. We feel that the offers are going to happen for him, too. His brother just put his name on the map first. We tell them to be patient. Zander’s time will come.”

At least one college has finally figured out that if Alec is ranked as the nation’s No. 1 safety prospect by Rivals and his brother is just as talented, then it might be a good idea to recruit the twins together. Florida State just offered Zander, after offering Alec a long, long time ago. The Seminoles were scholarship No. 1 for Zander, who said that UGA called on Wednesday with an invitation to prospect camp. “That’s really about it, as far as serious interest from colleges, FSU and Georgia,” Zander said.


Football is a family affair for the Ogletree family, which would love to see Zander (left) and Alec play ball together in college (Photo submitted by Ogletree family)
You see, that’s the big dream of the Ogletree family. There is nothing they’d like to see more than the boys playing together in college. Alec and Zander have been teammates since the diaper days.

“There is a pretty good chance that’s going to happen, I think so,” Alec said.

“I would love to see them together in college, that’s what we hoping for,” the mother said. “If they go to different schools, they’ll both do fine. But we’d love for them to be at the same school. That would make our entire family very happy.”

Alec’s truckload offers include UGA, Georgia Tech, Florida State, Florida, Miami, Tennessee, North Carolina, Auburn, Alabama, Oklahoma, LSU, Arkansas, South Carolina, Clemson, and Oregon.

More on the Ogletree Twins


The people in Newnan, Ga., will tell you that mega-prospect Alec Ogletree is good, but Zander is really, really good. From my evaluation from Zander on film, he is a tackling machine. He just doesn’t miss in the open field. Count on it. The entire Newnan defense, including his brother, feeds off his energy and leadership. I predict a lot of colleges that are serious about Alec will get serious about Zander very quickly. I predict any college that really wants in on the sweepstakes for Alec will move swiftly. It’s one thing to “take” one average player to get one great one. The difference here is that Alec is not average, he’s really, really good, in my evaluation. Zander is easily one of the state’s top linebacker prospects

I'm flattered to be considered for the 2009 CSROH and humbled to be chosen as one of the five inductees.

It's like a family on here, dysfunctional at times (basically during Cane football games when frustration/angered typing comes out), but still a family. I always said I felt bad for any jackhole that happens to come onto the board, bumping their gums about their team or how the Canes are no good .... it's like wandering into a school of piranha .... then again, the clown deserves it.

I didn't vote for myself, but I appreciate anyone who did vote for me.
