There are still a few undecided DTs out there in case Al gets desperate:

A'Shawn Robinson

Eddie Vanderdoes
http://espn.go.com/college-sports/football/recruiting/player/_/id/143548/eddie-vanderdoes

Toby Johnson (JC)
http://espn.go.com/college-sports/football/recruiting/player/_/id/161085/toby-johnson

There's also that Michael Parker kid from VA who we were rumored to visit a few weeks back; Taj Williams, a 6'4" WR from Tallahassee; and a couple of DEs, including Stacy Thomas from Gulliver Prep.

If the trend from the past few years is any indicator, recruiting doesn't really end on NSD.

GO CANES!!!

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

KB's dad didn't seem ecstatic after his son chooses FSU.

Ohio_Cane

If reports are right, and Collins was a silent to UM, and Thomas and Kirkland could've committed, Golden still has at least 3 more ships to give out?

Felipe

Parker ain't got the grades.

Vanderdoes = ND if Notre Dame's accidentally released early pressor is right.

Toby Johnson we need to go HAM at.

LA3

The TRUE U CANES signed with us....
Which is much better and means more than anything else. They wanted to at the U!
This is good class and will help a lot. Need to build depth at all positions.

Now we have to hope they COACH EM UP!

He's been desperate basically since a year ago today so I'd say he's probably looking at star lists like Larry Coker trying to find WR's in the mid 2000's if he feels like the Pee Wee dinner violations can't stick and isn't going to just offer those outstanding scholly's as a last tribute to the NCAA furies.

Felipe

Edward Williams is an Arthur Brown (CIRCA KSU TIME) clone, want big time:

Joe Garcia‏@JGJr9

Miami's class is currently ranked 19 as a composite. Will likely stay somewhere in that range. Not bad overall. Just not a HR.

Felipe

At least as it pertains to diagnosing plays and going HAM at the guy with the ball.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

Believe it or not, the other "silent" besides Grace was supposedly Matthew Thomas. I don't know and haven't heard if the Kirkland issue was what caused a change or if what i heard was just wrong.

3/5 isn't horrible, but worse than I was hoping.

Kirkland confirmed this, there's a video on sun-sentinel you can look at, he's being interviewed about what happened with UM and if UM pulling his scholly has something to do with Thomas choosing FSU.

Felipe

Rece Davis just made my list.

LB

Keef mentioned "Florida State" and "education" in the same sentence. Good Lord.

herbieibis

They tweeted, Bruce Feldman, they screw you once they'll screw you again. Thomas & Kirkland. Robinson was supposed to flip to Bama. We recruited Toby Johnson Early on but backed off. I need injury this past year and needed surgery. Vanderdoes, was verballed to SC but was supposed to flip but it won't be us.

UpNorthCane27

LB my only problem is i think tightends went from C- to A

LB

Grace is a family guy. Head on shoulders. Went through the process and claimed the Canes. Love it.

Felipe

Hope Al Golden offers that Edward Williams kid. Total sleeper with mad skills. Decent speed, excellent technique, great tackling, and smart as hell.

CaneRock

A ya'll, RLIII is gonna be a PLAYER!

Felipe

er, sorry, hope Williams CHOOSES us. I believe he has an offer.

Felipe

LB my only problem is i think tightends went from C- to A

Posted by: UpNorthCane | February 06, 2013 at 02:44 PM

I second that. Maybe even A+ with Walfords late-season explosion last year. Sandland is real deal.

UMike

Keef mentioned "Florida State" and "education" in the same sentence. Good Lord.

Thomas said FSU would be a good place for his family to watch him play lol

UpNorthCane27

Based on the first play in that video Edward williams needs to be a cane lol.. One handed touchdown interception sicckkkk

"LB my only problem is i think tightends went from C- to A"

I was trying to temper my enthusiasm. I haven't been excited since Graham about the TE position. I am now.

HAHA i hear you LB.... Is it football season yet?

You left out our best corner ANTONIO CRAWFORD. Please don't sleep on him!!!

CoCane

You're a fool if you can't see that Kirkland & Thomas shytted on us because of last week.


No Bryant, Bostwick, Bain. NOTHING. SMMFH. 2014 better have some rediculous DT's in it.

This upcoming season we'll know what we really have. Coaches & players...

Be in denial all you want but the Dade county talent DOES NOT TRUST GOLDEN. We'll never know what really happened but shyt is fukked up as far as the relationship with the players. Dam...

LB

The schedule is NICE.
We have a winning QB.
We upgraded TE like a boss.
Our secondary got even better.
Added depth at running back and the offensive line.
And we got AQM.

Most of the needs have been addressed. We still need a defensive tackle, and a placekicker.

Again, this Cane team has no business winning less than 9 games. They should outright sweep the Coastal and win at LEAST 3 out of 4 conference games. The Atlantic Opponents are FSU, Pittsburgh, and Wake Forest. That's at least one more win.

Keep the beasts healthy (Morris, Duke, Deon). Stop dropping passes. Improve the defense, even a little. Win the games we're supposed to win. Stand up and fight FSU...

...then Ice, Luther Campbell, Sileo, and all this other nonsense vanishes.

A Bleacher Report article is passing this along from InsideTheU:

Thomas picked Florida State on national signing day and also made note of how Miami treated his teammate, which likely impacted his decision. 
“You can’t trust coaches who do that,” Thomas said (via InsideTheU.com).

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1518310-recruits-snub-miami-claim-you-cant-trust-coaches

I make no claim as to whether Thomas's claim has any validity, but it's a bad day when the guy who would've been the first or second biggest get in the class publicly says the reason he chose to go elsewhere is that he finds you untrustworthy. And then he goes to Florida State, fergawdsake.

And what looks bad (if true), is the rumor is we needed his spot for a commit on the D side of the ball...WELLLLL..we didnt get any surprise commits and lost out on a few, so that couldn't of been true lol

706cane

Job well done canespace, can't wait for spring practices.

Ohio_Cane

Now it's official:

Hurricane Sports - It's official! LB Jermaine Grace (Miami Gardens, Fla.) has faxed in his NLI. #WelcomeToTheU!

Terrance Sullivan

Good class overall.

orange 'n green in the vein

I look forward to watching him being moved to FB by next spring. Can't keep my eyes on the shaking cam showing how many ESPN 300 recruits F$Poo snagged despite losing a monstrous recruiting head though to watch it more than even once honestly.

Sinistercane

Just face it Florida State defense was ranked in the top 10 and our defenseless was ranked 116th and With our defensive line technique no wonder we didn't sign any defensive tackles

Felipe

Jethro's boys up front best show up this year.

The Dude

Obviously DTs dont want to play for NoD.

j.w.

Well, that was interesting. I wouldn't say fun, but at least its done

Sinistercane

Are defenseless coordinator is the reason why we missed out

WWIN

I'm just glad we got STACY COLEY!!!! He was my top recruit to get, he'll be this years Duke Johnson.

Upnorth, on that note I think we'll start negotiating that contract you wuz lookin for

Felipe

Coley + Grace > Thomas + Bryant

Bryant seems like the guy too concerned with trolling and screwing around. High flop factor there.

LB

"High flop factor there."

Agreed.

Are we done with today?

Ohio_Cane

Are we done with today?

Unless we get a surprise I haven't heard about, yes.

Posted by: The Dude | February 06, 2013 at 03:05 PM


Which is really kind of dumb. I mean, even more than a lot of defenses, I see this one as utterly dependent on having that one really big guy (that we don't have).

Which reminds me: what's going on with Grimble? Is he going to play at end, or are they trying to make him genuinely big?

herbiebitchingibis

Stop making excuses for the defense, technique, Deno, scheme, whatever, talent wins in the end and FSU has got it to spare. We used to win with depth of talent up front. A weak front 7 will cause you to be ranked 116!

86Cane

NSD 2013: Good, not great, and certainly not EPIC.

WWIN...is there a buyout clause in your client's contract? LOL
