The man in the big hat!

I have met him several times, and Soup and I hung out with him for 3 hours or so at the state championship games about a year and a half back and had the exact same feeling, he is a great guy and a great coach.

roachcane77

Completely random comment made me spit water out...

U owe me a new keyboard! LOL

Per Pete Ariz..

2015 McArthur DB Kendrell McFadden (6’3”, 190) is one of the top prospects in South Florida. The rangy athlete already holds offers from the likes of Miami, Clemson, Florida, FSU, and Ohio State, but McFadden has been staying focused.

“After starting my first year and leading the team in tackles, my coach had told me in the spring that I had 32 offers. I was young so I got kind of big headed. My bubble got popped so now I’m working extra hard because I know I can lose it all at any time,” said McFadden.

McArthur isn’t a traditional power in Broward county, but McFadden and his teammates are using that as motivation.

“Around here in Hollywood where I stay, we are always talked about as being sorry and this and that so we take that all in as motivation.”

McFadden lines up nearly everywhere on the football field so his position at the next level is still undetermined, but he takes pride in being able to disrupt the offense in a multitude of ways.

“Quarterbacks have to keep an eye on me because my coach moves me around to safety, corner, and linebacker. Once you find me on the field, I’ll always be in a different spot. I’m working more at corner now because I’m trying to prove to people that I can move like that, but at the same time, my coach tells me to learn ore than one position so I can be able to know how to move around. I’ll even be playing some defensive end this year.”

With offers from many of the top programs across the country, McFadden is still in the process of cutting his list.

“Right now I’m open up to everybody, talking to as many coaches as I can. This summer, I’ll have a top school or a few schools because I really want to get out there to campuses and meet coaches.”

The hometown Miami Hurricanes are a school McFadden is taking a close look at.

“I’m most definitely interested in them. I could say I’m really close to them and I have a great bond with the coaches. I talk to the defensive coordinator Coach D.”

Miami coach Al Golden has used a specific pitch with McFadden to grab his attention.

“When I speak to Al Golden, he always tells me to come there because my family will always be there to watch me, so I look at it as a good thing.”

For the first two years of his high school career, McFadden has rocked the number 26 in honor of the late great Sean Taylor.

“I told myself coming in that I would wear 26 my first two years of high school because Sean Taylor is hands down my favorite player no matter what. Every game, I put ‘Rest in peace Sean Taylor’ on my wrist tape. I’m going to wear number 5 my last two years because my cousin died on the field wearing that same number.”

Miami in top 2 for Valentine...going to be a Miami-Alabama battle

UMike, back in the day, we used to call McArthur "The Mac". That's where you went when your regular didn't want to deal with you any more.

I don't want Sony-I'll take the 2 Central boys anyday

UMike

TJL..IDK a lot about any of them..but I got a huge bias towards Dade County kids

UpNorthCane27

Lets not forget yearby was committed to the wack ass noles at one point and only switched because Coley came here....

If Sony is a beast and truly Loves UM but picked UGA because he was confused and what not then I say, come to where you really belong and that's at UM...

UMike

The more I read/hear I think we have a better chance at flipping Cook than Sony. IMO, Cook and Robinson flip to us.

UMike

For those who care...Miami is currently ranked #10 in Rivals team rankings. The updated Rivals250 will be released at 12:00

Ohio_Cane

Heard recently that there is "NO WAY" Sony sticks with UGA commitment.

UMike

Confusion had nothing to do with it. $EC. Town > Michel.

Heh. I think Soup has the title of our next article... "Will Susan survive Seantrel's graduation?"

No, that was me. I'm just out of it apparently lol.

I did hear that a few days ago though from another person.

2014 4 star wide receiver Ryshene Bronson has moved on from Florida. Had visited both Miami and Noles. http://florida.247sports.com/Article/4-star-WR-Ryeshene-Bronson-decommits-from-Florida-131584

Lamar miller opened with first team.

Kevin Durant donated $1 million to the Red Cross Tornado relief in OKC. Wow, good for him.

j.w.

Great article, Roach!@ I enjoyed every sentence.

TonyCane

One hypothetical question....IF a recruit has partaked in the $EC benefits that are alleged to be out there...does that not place the recruit in a blackmail situation if he wants to flip his commitment?

TonyCane

Basically the recruit can't flip, as he risks losing his college eligibility or severely curtailing it.

4-Real

Not that it matters but Khairi Clark & Valentine are no longer in the rivals top 100 anymore, & they won't be unless they commit somewhere other than the U.

4-Real

Brad Kaaya awarded a 4 th star on rivals.

UMike

4-Real...A lot of movement in the new Rivals..dont think it means to much lol..Kaaya looked good in the elite 11 so they probably bumped him up

UMike

Also..with Kaaya picking up his 4th star, Miami now moves into 9th in the team rankings.

TonyCane

UMike, when will Rivals realize that it benefited Miami's team ranking and thus feel compelled to remove that fourth star?

Won't take long.

UMike

Another prominent theme in the Rivals250, especially this early in the recruiting calendar, is the proliferation of unranked players moving up drastically in the rankings.

That is the case again as Falcon, Colo., athlete Kalen Ballage checked in at No. 136, Savannah (Ga.) Calvary Baptist tight end Milan Richard moved to No. 148, West Palm Beach (Fla.) Cardinal Newman wide receiver Travis Rudolph went to No. 153, and Derby, Kan., tight end Deandre Goolsby was listed at No. 171.

Other previously unranked players making it into the 200 included Needham (Mass.) St. Sebastian's Country Day linebacker Connor Strachan (No. 179), Detroit (Mich.) Country Day quarterback Tyler Wiegers (No. 180), Bossier City (La.) Parkway quarterback Brandon Harris (No. 186), Imperial, Calif., running back Royce Freeman (No. 187), Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy quarterback Michael O'Connor (No. 188), Opelika, Ala., cornerback Stephen Roberts (No. 197) and West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade quarterback Brad Kaaya at No. 200.

Barry Jackson:

We'll get to Monday Heat news in a second, but first a quick UM update:

Defensive end Ricardo Williams has sought his release from UM and UM will not stand in his way. Receiver Robert Lockhart also has explored transferring. Canesport.com reported that both have been granted their release, but UM said it could not confirm that and has nothing to announce on either player.

Williams, a three-star prospect out of Homestead High, redshirted in 2011 and played in one game in 2012.

Lockhart, a four-star prospect from Boca Raton High and Fork Union Military Academy, was injured in the second game he played in 2012 after sitting out the first six games.

UM was not counting on Williams being a major contributor this upcoming season, and its outstanding depth at receiver will make Lockhart's potential departure a non-issue.
