GRAY CROW!

Oh, that was last year, my bad.

Ohio_Cane

CR, just a hunch. He said in the past that playing with a big time QB will make a lot of difference where he picks. We've got 3 possible big time guys coming in with Olsen just now joining the team.

Ohio_Cane

SOUP, while I respect your love for Crow, he's about to be the odd man out, IMO. Jesus Olsen will have a red shirt year, a UTough, Spring, Summer and Fall going into the post-Morris era

Good Stuff From Pete Ariz..

I was able to speak with Miami Northwestern defensive coordinator Luther Campbell, who coaches two of Miami's newest commitments, Michael Smith and Ryan Mayes. Campbell had some great insight on his two players as well as discussed the state of Miami's recruiting efforts in South Florida.

Q: Do you feel like the team at Miami Northwestern took steps in the right direction during the Spring in order to improve upon last season?
Campbell: We took some great steps and strides. On my defense last year, we graduated about 11 guys and 10 of them went D-1 so the young guys who played behind them understand what it takes to be a Bull. Spring went good and I think this group of guys is going to be very successful.

Q: Talk about Mike Smith. What type of player is Miami getting in him?
Campbell: Just like Artie Burns, they’re getting a hard, hard, hard working and non-stop young man who is very respectful and does good work in school. He’s not going to cause any problems off the field and he just works hard. You don’t have to ask him to lift weights or to be at practice on time. He’s a leader out there.

Q: Not many people knew about Mike before last season, but he ended up with 18 sacks. How did he rise so quickly into that player?
Campbell: He strives to be the best. He has a motor in him and he is fueled by something other than just football. He just wants to be the best. When we played Central in the playoff game, he broke his hand and the doctors told him he couldn’t play any more, but he said that’s not going to happen and he taped it up and went back out there and recorded a couple more sacks. This will be our third year together and he was around these other older guys and he knows what the expectations are.

Q: Last season, Mike was primarily used as a pass-rusher with his hand on the ground. What role will he play for you guys this season and what do you see his future position as?
Campbell: This summer, I didn’t even let him play down. Only in the Spring game for a few plays he was playing on the ground, but I taught him the linebacker position and all the roles with it. He picked it up very, very fast and I see him as a great 3-4 guy who can put his hand down in the dirt and be a pass-rusher, as well as drop back like those natural 3-4 guys. He’s the prototype.

Q: The other kid from you defense that Miami got is Ryan Mayes. What are they getting with him?
Campbell: Ryan is a young man that came over this year. He wanted to come over last year, but he figured he stay over at Krop and give himself the opportunity to play because we had Artie going to Miami, De’Andre Coley going to Arkansas, one to Cincinatti, and one to Western Kentucky so there wasn’t going to be much playing time in the defensive backfield for him. We looked at some things with him and he wasn’t as aggressive as we wanted him to be, so that’s what we worked on with him all Spring and we got him playing Miami Northwestern football. He came in and accepted all of the information that his defensive backs coach gave him and it shows. When I was out at the camp the other day, the coaches asked me about him and I said if you look at his Krop tape, you’ll see a totally different guy from what you see now. We coach an aggressive style here and he understood that coming in and he accepted it. He’s a very talented young man who can play receiver, return man, and I think for the very first time he was able to focus on one position and I think that helped him out a lot.

Q: Do you see him as a corner or a safety in college?
Campbell: It varies with him because he’s so athletic. He would probably run a 4.3 easily and I think he can fit in at any system. He’s very versatile and he’s already 6’2” so he can get to 6’3”. He can be a safety or a big corner, it will depend on the needs of the team. Artie played both corner and safety here, but talking to the coaches at Miami now, they love him at corner because the needs of cornerback are there for them.

Q: You had a guy in Marquise Blanchard last season who nobody knew about heading into the season, but ended up leading the county in sacks with 24. Are there any guys you’re looking at now to have breakout season like that?
Campbell: Shemarke Spence is a guy that people think is undersized, but he comes from the Spence family so he’s a very high football IQ player. People look at him as a short kid at 5’10” playing strong safety, but I look at him like Rohan Marley and Honey Badger, he’s no different. He jumps out of the building and makes up for his height. He’s a very smart and intelligent kid and people look at his highlight, then his size so they de-value him because of that. We have another kid named Khalid McGee, and he’s a young guy who Mark Richt fell in love with at the Georgia camp and then FAU offered him right on the spot at their camp. Our coaches do a very good job of coaching these guys up.

Q: There was so much talk during the last recruiting cycle about this Miami coaching staff not hitting the Dade County area hard enough and you were one of the people most vocal about it. Do you see any differences in the way they’re handling this class?
Campbell: I’ve seen a big difference. They’re going out hard for kids in Miami. One thing about it is I love the University of Miami and no matter who the coach is, my whole thing is getting the best talent. It could be Jesus Christ that’s coaching and if he’s not getting the top kids then I would criticize Jesus Christ because I love Miami, which I think is God’s team. Last year having conversations with them and this year seeing what they’ve done as far as going after the Joe Yearbys of the world, going after the Mike Smiths, and all these young men from around here, I think they’re doing an excellent job. I think you could take the best 11 players from down here and go win a national championship with that. That’s just my thing. I think you should lock up the best players in Miami. You can’t take everybody, but between the best players in Miami and the best players from around the country, there’s no reason you can’t compete for a national championship. I hated to see Amari Cooper leave and go to Alabama. When I’m sitting there everyday with this kid and all he is wearing is University of Miami apparel and drop him off at his house and Miami is all over his wall, that’s hard for me so yeah I’m going to be critical. If I know Amari Cooper should be playing for the University of Miami and for some odd reason he did not end up there, yeah I’m going to have a problem and be critical. I see a lot of improvement with it though. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist because we know who the top guys are. I thought Marquise Blanchard should have been recruited there, but I understand the situation and they didn’t have as many scholarships. This year, it’s like a complete turn around. We’re going to get Miami first and then everything else. These kids nowadays look at the internet and see the top kids from Miami so when they see the top kids are going to Miami, it makes it easier for them to recruit around the country because everyone wants to play with those guys. They’re doing a very good job and the future looks good.

It’s rare but it happens. A recruit who is highly rated reaches out to a school who is not recruiting him and expresses his interest. Well, that’s exactly what happened this weekend just after one of the final Al Golden Football Camps as 2015 defensive tackle Daylon Mack, who currently holds seven major BCS offers reached out to Hurricanes running backs coach, Hurlie Brown.

“He just told me that they were interested in me, so he asked for my coach to send him some film.”

Mack, a five-star recruit according to 247′s recruiting service, already holds major offers heading into his junior season. He’s got offers from Texas A&M, Alabama, Oklahoma, Texas, TCU, Texas Tech and Southern Methodist University. But of all of those offers, he’s really attracted to the Canes.

“Miami’s an out of state school that I like,” Mack said. ”Really they’re the only out of state school that I like besides LSU,” who Mack says is close to his home in Gladewater, Texas and has a winning football tradition.

But despite the recent on the field play at Miami not being as good as many schools he holds offers from, it’s their past that is the biggest attraction for this prep athlete.

“I just like the past, back when it was all about ‘the U’ and the swag,” Mack said. ”I think I can be a big part in helping it to come back.”

And it’s no surprise that he reached out to coach Brown who was part of two national championship winning teams during Miami’s championship reign.

The connection for Mack is 2015 Miami target at running back Jacques Patrick, who recently visited Miami for the last day of the Al Golden Camps. Patrick and Mack have forged a relationship via Twitter as the two were both invited to attend the Rivals 5-Star Camp several weeks ago.

“He mentioned me on Twitter a few weeks before the Rivals camp in Chicago and we got a chance to talk in Chicago about the recruiting process.”

From there, the two exchanged numbers and text nearly every day according to Mack. When Patrick informed Mack that he’d be heading down to Miami for camp, Mack wanted Patrick to let the coaches know about his interest in the school. That eventually lead to his conversation with coach Brown.

“I was the first to reach out. My friend Jacques Patrick took a visit and he said he could put me in contact with the coaches and I called and talked to coach Brown.”

Mack says Patrick likes Miami a lot also.

Right now, Mack is prepping for the upcoming season where he says his team is bound to turn a 3-7 2012 season into a much more successful 2013 campaign.

But he’s not too busy to take a visit to Miami if requested.

“I can see myself getting down there to visit if I was invited.”

As for what he’s looking for in a final college destination, Mack says it’s going to come down to coaching.

“I’m looking to get along with the coaching staff, and players. Come in and win. I also want a coach that makes you work hard, I would like to be coached hard, that’s really what I’m looking for.”

Mack says he wants to make his college choice around a year from now in July 2014, just before his senior season at Gladewater High.

The Alabama QB just informed me via text that he is a Hurricane

UMike

Good post from a blogger at CIS..


For the Star Wh*res

Mayes and Gray both went from 0 stars to 3 star prospects after committing to us. Just goes to show that it is so subscription based these sites are and that they just don't have to resources to thoroughly evaluate all prospects. They probably have never watched film on either but just the name Miami bumps them from 0 to 3 stars. Bottom line, trust the staff and their eyes over a sales hungry industry in recruiting websites with 10 employees.

Quick Note On Travonte Valentine From An LSU Site

-As stated before, Valentine is towards the top of LSU's board...he has some work to do in the classroom but if he gets eligible, LSU is the team to beat...LSU is also after his teammate Michael Johnson

With Thompson leaving football..we should have yet another spot open

DT Valentine According to Rivals..

This local defensive tackle who lists Miami among his 35 offers was on campus this past weekend. And he now says UM leads.

UMike

Soooo Rosier had to choose between Arkansas St., Furman, Middle Tenn. St., Northern Illinois, Southern Miss, W. Kentucky & Miami....smart choice young man lol

UMike

Still no bat signal for Rosier..wonder if he still had a "commitable offer" lol

LB

It's up on Facebook.

UMike

LB..I dont doubt it..Just saying lol

UMike

Carroll just sent the bat signal out lol....I am NOT going to bash Rosier..but I am not a big fan of this pick up..jmo of course

LB

"Carroll just sent the bat signal out lol....I am NOT going to bash Rosier..but I am not a big fan of this pick up..jmo of course"

It's all about the position for me. If it were a linebacker/defensive lineman, I'd more a little more excited (Ryan Williams, Olsen, Crow, Dewey, and the 2014's will be on the roster post Morris).

It's a bit like Wes Welker going to my beloved Broncos. I'm glad, but we already have the best receiver combo in the league (D. Thomas, Decker). I would have rather had a really good player in the secondary.

However, Golden and the staff have performed magnificently. There's no denying that. Even the dumbest FSU fan could realize that the NCAA cloud is lifting very quickly. The cuffs are off, and we nabbed 10 (!) names in the month of June. Six of them are on defense, and that's superb momentum and absolutely makes UM look better in addressing a position of weakness.

Since Thompson decided to solely play baseball, another QB couldn't hurt. I want defense though.

On another note, are there any good linebackers in FL?

Manny:

Five more 2013 summer arrivals for Canes; 15 in, five still out

Three-fourths of the Hurricanes' 2013 signing class are officially enrolled in classes according to UM.

Tuesday's newest arrivals for the start of Summer Session II were receiver Stacy Coley, running back/receiver Corn Elder, fullback Gus Edwards, quarterback Kevin Olsen and linebacker Walter Tucker.

They joined joined 10 others in the 2013 recruiting class who previously enrolled including four in January and six others beginning in May.

UM is still waiting for five others in the signing class to enroll. They are: defensive end Alquadin Muhammad, receiver Derrick Griffin, athlete Ryheem Lockley, linebacker Devante Bond, and defensive end Ufomba Kamalu.


UMike

### As expected, quarterback David Thompson left the UM football team to concentrate entirely on baseball. He said he injured his shoulder by throwing a football – he needed surgery twice in the past 11 months – and believes he would risk another injury if he kept playing.

“And I’ve been told baseball is where my future is,” he said. “It was a decision I didn’t want to make. I cried a couple of nights.” Thompson will spend the summer rehabbing after his latest shoulder surgery but expects to be ready for the start of the 2014 UM baseball season.

### UM is up to 17 oral commitments for 2014 after securing non-binding pledges from Miami Northwestern cornerback Ryan Mayes (formerly of Miami Krop) and Carol City’s Trayone Gray, who will play quarterback this season but projects as a receiver or running back for UM. (Wednesday morning update: Alabama-based quarterback Malik Rosier also has orally committed. He ran for 1002 yards, threw for 2230 and 20 TDs last season. He also had offers from Vanderbilt, Cincinnati, Misssissippi and Mississippi State.)

Luke and Ice got pizzed when Al Golden refused to kiss their rings! They were acting like handlers last season and not die hard fans of THE U!
That's fine with me if you own it, but don't backtrack about why you were telling kids to go elsewhere which is what they were doing. Sileo was doing the same thing a few years back when Randy was recruiting Matt Patchan. Again it probably wasn't bad advice but don't deny it and then roll in that you would do anything for the program when your actions say otherwise.
My personal feeling is Luke is not someone you want to give unfettered access to given his history and also given the cloud that still hangs over the program.

GRAY CROW!

However, Golden and the staff have performed magnificently. There's no denying that. Even the dumbest FSU fan could realize that the NCAA cloud is lifting very quickly. The cuffs are off, and we nabbed 10 (!) names in the month of June. Six of them are on defense, and that's superb momentum and absolutely makes UM look better in addressing a position of weakness.

Hernandez will spend a lot of time doing the Gator flop.
OUCH!!!

Or he can avoid all that trouble take those big hands, flap them, and do the GATOR CHOMP with his JAWS for real. Hell he can at least look at the QB and see what hes getting instead of being broke open like a 12 gauge. Couldn't happen to a better guy!!!!

Well.....it would be better if it was Urban going to prison.....I would love to see that greaseball cheater get abused!!!!

According to Pete Ariz, Berrios said no offer from UM is coming and he's disappointed. I am too, but that just means they got good news from someone else at that position.

Was just watching the ESPNU draft special... They listed Canes bball record, key player lost, key returning starter, etc.

Guess who's name was under "Key Recruit"? Derrick Griffin. Lol

This quote from the awesome Excalibur movie will be thought, and perhaps spoken once the cloud of the NCAA investigation withers away in a few weeks.

"Are you a dream?"

"A dream to some. A nightmare to others!"

Without sanctionary clouds, the rest of the ACC have to be quivering.

The "Canes Barber" dude was on Twitter talking about prayers for Hernandez...really man? He is the one people should pray for? lol

Not that it means anything NOW..but Sam Bruce painting his entire room UM colors

Pete Ariz doin work...

I was able to catch up with former University of Miami wide receiver Kevin Beard ('99-'03), who is the receivers coach at University School and a coach on the South Florida Express 7-on-7 team. We discussed the positives of 7-on-7 football, talked about some breakout players, and also spoke about a couple of Hurricanes-related topics.

Q: There’s always been criticism of the 7-on-7 circuit with people saying it’s not real football. What would you say are the positives that come from it?
Beard: I think that’s people from the outside that really don’t have a part in it and don’t understand the magnitude of it and what it does for these kids. Mike Rumph is one of my good friends that I went to college with and Tarvarus McFadden is with him at American Heritage. He made a note to me that Tarvarus has changed from day and night since after football season basically because 7-on-7 has given him so much confidence. Going against the top guys every day and taking reps against 4-star, 5-star, division-1 prospects is huge. Kids get to meet guys that are on the same path they are on and they know that the next guy understands how they’re feeling. You’re never going to get away from people that aren’t for it because that’s just the nature of the beast. You’re going to have people against something and people for something. Another point is a lot of people use the 7-on-7 team to steer the kids from the high school they’re at to come play for them and a lot of coaches feel like they don’t want their guys around other guys because they’re feel like they’re gonna recruit them so that’s another stigma that goes around in the process of it. Being around it for the last four years, we don’t encourage that type of behavior because we know the type of stigma that comes with it, but everybody doesn’t operate the way we do at South Florida Express so that’s why we feel like if we do things the way that’s best for the kids, it will ultimately be the best for their schools.

Q: Who are some guys you really saw take the next step with you over the past few months?
Beard: Da’Vante Phillips is a guy that a lot of people raved about how good he was and being at Central where they run the ball predominantly, he doesn't really get too many opportunities to show how good he is. He got a chance to really showcase his ability with us. Kadeem Goulbourne from Cypress Bay, Kenny Rawles, and Jewison Dawkins from Plantation all came out and competed and made the Pro team and they learned a lot and got better. When they actually went back to their high schools and participated against the DBs at their school and colleges came out, they were doing their thing. Next thing you know, I hear Tennessee and South Carolina and all these schools are recruiting these guys and Boston College, Bowling Green are offering them. We’re talking about guys who didn't have anything before and that’s a positive. Nobody is here to take credit or anything, but you had a chance to come here and practice against the best and learn technique and fundamentals, then went back to your high school and applied those things so it was much easier for them and that’s the result of it. They’re getting offers from it and that’s their dream.

Q: Talk about Sam Bruce and what separates him at his young age.
Beard: Oh man, special. I knew he was special when he came in. That whole being raw and talented is so good, but when you understand the game like us at University School, we know that it’s not all about talent and talent is overrated when it boils down to mental toughness and how you play the game mentally and that’s one of the things we’re working on really hard with him and he’s been up to the challenge. The thing he’s really working on now is not worrying about who’s in front of him, but to challenge himself because he’s his only challenge. Once he gets that understood and holds himself to that standard, the sky is the limit for him.

Q: We had talked about Ermon Lane a few months back and one of the things you mentioned with him was that you would focusing on the little things with him. Do you feel like he made strides with that?
Beard: Definitely, definitely. One of the things I talk with the kids about is that I get on them about the little things, and then I point out the big things. What I’m trying to do is get them to self-coach themselves and recognize their own mistakes. Once they get to that level that’s when they can realize when they know better, they do better. Once I give them that look and they’re running over to the sidelines, they’re already like ‘I know, I know.’ They’ll give me what the problem was and once I see that out of them, that’s when I know they’re doing their job.

Q: Talk about a couple of South Florida Express corners, Chris Lammons and Tyrek Cole.
Beard: Chris Lammons is one of those kids who plays quarterback so he has the instincts and knows what an offense is trying to do because he has the mind of a quarterback. Once he gets on defense, he knows how to break things down before it happens so he’s a very instinctive player that is mastering his technique and fundamentals. He has that “it” that a coach can’t teach. Tyrek Cole can be every bit of Tracy Howard coming out of Miramar. I really feel like Miramar does a great job with their corners and as you can see, they keep spitting them out and he’s another guy who’s just young and has a bright future ahead of him. He plays the game with confidence and the more he goes against the top-notch talent and continues to play with confidence, the sky is the limit for him.

Q: Who would you say was the best player you guys faced during the season?
Beard: I would have to say Travis Rudolph. He ended up playing with us over the weekend and that’s one of the reasons he played for us is because he played for the South Florida Blur and he was a one-man wrecking show. He played both sides of the ball and watching him it’s like ‘wow, whatever college gets you has a special kid.’ To find out he’s Devin Hester’s cousin, that just tells you the type of kid and type of athlete he is. That’s one guy that stood out. Isaiah Ford from Jacksonville is committed to Louisville is special. He plans on playing basketball and football and he’s a special talent.

Q: Something we spoke about a few months back was how Miami didn't have their typical amount of South Florida kids in last year’s class. Do you see any differences in the way they’ve approached this class?
Beard: Oh most definitely, and you would not find someone as happy as me about it. I’m so happy that they’re hitting their backyard hard and the momentum is rising as kids continue to commit. What I kind of notice is that there’s a lot of big-time prospects in South Florida that tend to wait it out since it’s more exciting to put the hats on the table and all that type of stuff and the one thing I applaud Coach Golden and the staff for doing is they don’t have the luxury of waiting because if they don’t get you then they’re in a hole and they’re stuck. So what they’re doing right now is going after guys in their backyard who they feel can play for them and they can develop and want to be a part of the U family. What’s gonna happen is once those guys end up going to the school and producing and getting developed and they start winning, things will begin to change. Then those guys that want to wait a while will look at the situation and say ‘I don’t have time to wait because I really do want to go to Miami and I don’t want to get left behind.’ The main thing with Miami is they just have to win, bottom-line. That will answer all these questions out there about Coach Golden and his staff. One thing I understand is that it’s all about the process, but I’m very excited about what’s going on right now. It looks really good down there.

Q: Back in 2001, you had some drops against Penn State but were able to rebound for a solid season and had a great performance in the National Championship game. What kind of advice would you give to a guy like Phillip Dorsett, who had some key drops on a nationally televised game against Notre Dame?
Beard: The main thing that I would do is go back and pay attention to the details because that’s what it boils down to. Go back to the fundamentals and really master the little things because once you master the little things, the big things will come easy. Once you catch the ball, making moves on people and making them miss is a big deal for a lot of player. But for a lot of playmakers, catching the ball and looking it in is big. You get so busy thinking about the yards after the catch that you mess around and miss out on the catch. Instead of worrying about the 60-yard bomb, worry about getting the 20-yard catch and then worry about the bomb after. That would help anybody, from Phillip Dorsett to a high school guy, so that’s the type of stuff I like to concentrate on.
