-Says Miami has always been in his top 5, they'll most likely make the cut

Posted by: UMike | May 10, 2013 at 03:30 PM

Good thing Franklin and Carroll are recruiting Him, because Michael Barrow would've been like..."WHAT! TOP 5! Bitch, this ain't no radio contest! NEEEEEEEEXT!

UMike

Per Rivals & CIS

Vincent Jackson Article From Rivals

Here's the summary boys:

-Jethbro Franklin and Brennan Carroll are recruiting him hard
-He's tight with Chick, Tyriq, and Antonio Crawford (Tampa guys)
-Says he knows "these guys will bring Miami back to the top"
-Says top five "will be based on the environmental fit, if I feel the atmosphere at the school is the type I would enjoy, if it's a family environment"
-Says Miami has always been in his top 5, they'll most likely make the cut
-Could play Tight end or H-Back
-Is going to visit Miami sometime and try to make a decision by the end of his season

IMO..he ends up at Bama

"I never gave it a thought," Conine said. "Obviously, you play off the energy of a bigger crowd. But it didn't affect me at all." Conine did remember one weird thing about Joe Robbie: In the emptiness, you could hear an individual heckler's voice with amazing clarity. It was like you and the heckler were at the same café and he was two tables over."

I'll now take my award for playing the key role in making the overrated TE pretending to be a QB for the Chokies do just that last year in the 15000 that showed up.

Frank Haith might sue Bank of America after a federal judge turned down his request to subpoena employees who may have given access to his account amid the Nevin Shapiro probe.

Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/05/10/3390945/petition-by-former-miami-hurricanes.html#storylink=cpy

PS: Good for Haith, investigate the investigators.

CaneRock

A federal judge in Miami on Friday denied a petition from former University of Miami basketball coach Frank Haith seeking to subpoena Bank of America employees to determine if they allowed unauthorized parties to access his checking account during the NCAA Nevin Shapiro investigation.

Haith, now at the University of Missouri, had filed the motion on Monday under Rule 27, which allows depositions in anticipation of a civil lawsuit. U.S. District Judge Robin Rosenbaum dismissed the petition, saying Haith did not have legal basis for seeking the information under Rule 27.

“The judge ruled that we couldn’t seek the information under Rule 27, but we could get all that information from the bank if we file a lawsuit,” said Haith’s attorney, Michael Buckner. “We plan to explore all his options, including, but not limited to, a lawsuit against Bank of America. The denial of the petition has nothing to do with the validity of Coach Haith’s claims. We still plan to find out who accessed his bank records.”

The petition stated that in October 2012, Haith and his wife, Pamela, became suspicious of a possible privacy breach when they requested copies of three checks and were told someone else had already requested them. The Haiths tried unsuccessfully to resolve the issue through repeated requests to the bank. If a Bank of America employee or agent permitted an unknown party to view or procure the records, it could be a violation of federal and state laws.

Haith had been asked by the NCAA to provide microfiche copies of three checks dated June 10, 2010. He had already provided photocopies of those checks, and other financial documents, in October 2011, but the NCAA wanted clearer images. Each check was for $3,200 and they were made out to his assistant coaches Jorge Fernandez, Jake Morton and Michael Schwartz. He says they were payments for their work at his camp. The NCAA suspects that money was used to pay back $10,000 to Shapiro that he says he had given Morton to help secure a recruit.

Ensworth is the top private school in the state & their boys are well coached. Very comparible to St Thomas Aquinas. Also kids from Ensworth don't have qualification issues.

FROM CIS..

JUCO DT Julio Derosier offered...

Originally from Homestead, says he is getting compared to Sheldon Richardson

UMike

TIFWIW..Vincent Jackson tweeted.."Alabama needs to stop playing and offer my brother Isaiah Wynn, we playing together in college man"...Wynn is a 3-Star guard...He also tweeted about trying to get everyone offers sooo lol

Hassan

he tweaked his hammy a couple weeks ago but is fine now

I thought I saw this somewhere. Did they tell you something about Dorsett having a pulled hamstring?

CASH at CIS:

Talked to a kid I know who played against both Rico & Sawyer & said they both are legit. Sawyer has quite the apparent reputation for playing with a very physical & nastiness. Ensworth is the top private school in the state & their boys are well coached. Very comparible to St Thomas Aquinas. Also kids from Ensworth don't have qualification issues.

Ohio_Cane

From CIS:


Rico McGraw & Mike Sawyers

Just offered them both. Same high school as Corn Elder. Rico (Class of 2015) has offers from everyone and projects to be safety. Mike is a pretty highly rated 2014 DT/OG. Hopefully we get them on board.

j.w.

Old skool- true, hopefully Va Tech still delivers Washington, they say they do. Dude- I tried to say the East Coast plus Chicago was the market for the ACC :) Bear with me, I'll get it right eventually.

UMike

Canes were at Park Vista working on 2014 S Marques Gayot a Louisville commit

Great idea, U got it!

Just because Jennifer Love Hewitt is my dream girl, doesn't mean the Herb is going to end up with her!
Speaking of my man Swasey, it all depends what a coach wants I suppose, Randy liked low body fat & Quickness, which was good some years back but now it's more about the three Ess's, speed, size & strength.

Canes coaches at Village Academy in Delray Beach.

Man, they're everywhere today.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Golden has made the team stronger. Its funny because Swasey was here the whole time. Just goes to show how much a HC needs to be involved. Coker and Shannon gave players NO accountablilty in the weight room. I feel like next years team will be better and more talented than any we had under Shannon. They will be better organized than any of the last few of Cokers.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Linder is showing Canes how you get drafted.

CaneRock

Linder doing 41 reps and no one says anything, that is some serious power at our guard spot. Also PD#4 just ran a 4.37 after pulling his hammy told me he will be running a 4.2 this summer.

Posted by: Hassan | May 09, 2013 at 12:51 PM

I knew Dorsett was fast, but BL's 41 reps is impressive, considering the fact He has long arms.

Litton is the ONLY recruit listed for that school on Rivals..not even any 2-Star guys..so must be him lol

Posted by: UMike | May 09, 2013 at 10:59 AM

Which begs the question: Is this kid actually a lot better than scouts think?

He's obviously throwing to sub-par WR's.

Good post on CIS..


positive recruiting trend

Something that pops out to me after reading recruiting articles is that a lot of these prospects say "Miami was my first offer". that is big for a couple reasons

1. Golden and Co. are identifying talent early unlike the past and are focusing on more than one class at a time
2. A lot of kids have a special place for the first school that offers him
3. Offering first creates good competition with other schools as it impacts their recruiting strategy
4. We aren't playing catch up with a lot of kids and are in it from the beginning

FIRST . . . in the second hundred.

UMike

Ohio..I think it is starting to just become a lose term in which it doesn't mean one specific school. They could just mean it is their dream school because its close to South Beach and they play on TV etc..not necessarily because they love Miami..cause a lot of these kids will also call another team their dream school a couple weeks later lol...Hell, even Howard's mom said UGA was Tracy's dream school..Im sure he had a commit-table offer there lol

UMike, at least some of these kids that are getting an offer and saying it's their "dream school" may not be getting commit-able offers.

Just a guess.

Vincent Jackson Jr.
Releasing an official Top 10 in 2 weeks, no need in playing around anymore.

hahahaha..so you dont want to play around any more with recruiting, but you still going to wait 2 weeks only to release a top 10? Darn kids lol

UMike

BTW Nigel Patten was also offered by Western Kentucky yesterday..3 offers yesterday lol

UMike

### Besides excluding testimony of Kyle Wright, the NCAA informed UM that it will toss the testimony of Brodie Waters, the No. 2 official at Nevin Shapiro’s former sports agency, because part of it may have resulted from Sean Allen’s excluded testimony. Waters’ interview wasn’t believed to be horribly damaging.

The 'space is under attack!!!

Hassan

Coach Golden pointed out a few players as becoming men recently...Morris and Chick. Linder, Porter, and Seantrel all made the right choice in returning to school and presented a stat that 75% of underclass men that came out early this past year were drafted day 3. They now understand the "process" and what it means. Linder recently did 41 reps of 225. Malcolm Lewis has been cleared as of this past Monday. Herb Waters was pointed out as a player who has gotten much better since last year. Said TE group has been upgraded this year as well as WR (spoke about the injuries that hurt our WR core last year). Admitted the K State game was too much for our young team to handle that early and that he felt we were a couple plays away from going into 4th qtr w ND and being competitive. Really looking forward to moving past the previous self imposed bowl bans etc.

j.w.

Agreed, OGV and Hassan. The ACC market would include almost every major East Coast Time Zone (notable exceptions: Philadelphia, Baltimore, probably one-two more I'm forgetting), plus Chicago. 15 members now and you know they're thinking about #16. The obvious choices (based solely on market) would be Penn State (not happening), Temple (meh), or Villanova (not the best fit). That opens the door to one more team, just can't figure out who. I How much does U Conn regret that lawsuit when we left the ACC? :)

I posted the population stats and our new contract with ESPN, people should pay attn, once we get more money pumped in we will be really able to upgrade our facilities. We start winning and get more fans and our recruiting will be picking who we want, not begging kids to come here.

orange 'n green in the vein

So no CBS sports network but the revenue stream created from those population stats somebody posted on here has the potential to demand 2x's the SEC network? (Which is going to be as regional as it gets because the rest of the country is done listening to a bunch of also-rans pump up 'Bama so they feel better about losing to them.)

Good day for the ACC- there really will be an ACC network. This is huge, even for us who live outside of the market, as I can't see anything on CSS right now. DirecTV will hopefully be one of the partners of this new venture.

Jordan Scarlett update:

On 247sports:

“Of course it’s the home school, everybody dreams [of play there] and loves them,” he said of Miami. “UM, their coaches are really pushy. They recruit you one minute and then one minute they act very stupid with players. They really do.”

UMike

Per Pete Ariz..

When James Coley made the move from Florida State to Miami a few months ago, his recruiting impact was felt almost immediately. The 40-year old offensive coordinator has made his presence felt in a major way in the search for a quarterback as well. From the looks of things, 2014 QB Brad Kaaya (6’4”, 215) of Chaminade High School in West Hills, California could be that 2nd quarterback the ‘Canes are looking for in this class. Kaaya described how the school from across the country discovered him.

“One of the ways Coach Coley found out about me was through the Under Armour combine with the reports and all that. He (Coley) told me personally that he was looking for a guy 6’3” or over who fit the style of play at Miami and I was one of the guys that met the criteria,” said Kaaya.

Miami was Kaaya’s first offer back in mid-March, which has left an impression on the gunslinger.

“I was constantly talking to Coach Coley before the offer came up and he was telling me that he wanted me to play for him. The offer came and it was a surprise to me, but it’s really good for Miami to be my first offer. It’s a school that I’ve always liked their style of play because it’s really enjoyable to watch on TV. I even remember going back to when I was little, the 2002 Rose Bowl with Dorsey at quarterback. It was just big for me and my family emotionally to get that offer.”

Since then, Coley and Kaaya have been in constant contact.

“Coach Coley reached out to me really early and I’ve gotten a really genuine vibe from both him and Coach Golden. I’m talking to Coach Coley every single day. Everything from him so far has been solid and straightforward.”

There doesn't seem to be much indecision from Kaaya on who leads for his services.

“Miami is without a doubt on top of my list. I’m planning on making a decision in the next month. June is when I want to make the commitment. ASU, UCLA, Stanford, and Oklahoma State are all schools I’ve liked and San Diego State is a school that has offered me and I would be able to see the field early.”

The physically-gifted quarterback from Cali feels like he has all the makings of a great one.

“I feel like I’m the best at making it happen and operating things. That doesn’t just mean being a quarterback and throwing it downfield and making reads, it’s moving the offense down the field, making sure everyone is in the right spot at the right time, making sure everyone’s on the same page, and making checks at the line.”

He plans on camping at Miami next month.

“I want to go June 1st because I heard a lot of big-time guys will be there and I want to bring some guys from my school too.”
