Yes, football season needs to come.

Our recruits do one better than wear hats, they claim to be lifelong fans and then sign somewhere else lol

Orlando Timber Creek's Javonte Seabury has been waiting for something big to happen in his recruiting process. Hurlie Brown delivered the big bang Friday.

The Miami Hurricanes running backs coach gave the speedy 5-foot-9, 160-pound slot back his second college football scholarship offer, and it's the one that Seabury hopes will get him even more attention.

"It was the last thing I expected. I went there last week and I ran a 4.38, but I didn't really hear that much from them," Seabury said Friday via cell phone while on a unofficial visit to Auburn, "but he told me to just be patient and then told me to give him a call. I called and he told me he wanted to offer me."

Now he has something in common with his younger, bigger brother. Among the 40-plus college offers already reeled in by 2015 running back prospect Jacques Patrick is also an offer from the Hurricanes. Seabury's first offer was from Kent State last month.

Patrick, the 6-foot-2, 220-pound specimen who is one of the most sought-after rising juniors in the country, has said all along that big things were soon to happen for his smaller, older brother.

Let's not forget, faster brother.

When a player clocks a 4.38-second 40-yard dash right in front of the coaches he's trying to impress, it tends to raise some eyebrows.

"[Coach Brown] told me that they are bringing in a lot of receivers and that he loves my speed," Seabury said, "and that me running a 4.38 helped a lot with giving them the extra urge to offer me."

Seabury and Patrick are currently on their second college tour of the summer that will take them from Auburn to Athens, Ga., tonight for Georgia's Dawg Night. They will head to Georgia Tech on Saturday and also have Troy, Tulane and LSU penciled in among the other stops on their current swing.

Seabury was at the Al Golden Camp last weekend in Coral Gables when he impressed the coaches with his speed. It wasn't the first time at UM, but this time Seabury finally met Golden.

"I love Miami it's a great atmosphere," Seabury said. "I've been down there several times and I love the coaching staff and I met the head coach for the first time last week. He's a great guy."

He realizes there is a bit of urgency to the recruiting process now with schools starting to fill up their 2014 allotment of scholarships. He said he could make his commitment before the season starts.

"Hopefully this offer will spark the fire for other schools to offer me," Seabury said. "I'm glad they pulled the trigger, so I'm hoping other schools will see that and they'll pull the trigger, too."

Miami, which has done a nice job hauling in a mixture of big-time prospects and off-the chart sleepers with its 2014 class, has 19 current commitments. The Hurricanes rank No. 6 in the nation in the 247sports.com team rankings for this year's class.

"Most schools are almost full and that's why I may commit before the season starts ... either in the next few weeks or sometime in late August," Seabury said. "That's what I plan on doing for now. It just depends on how the next couple of weeks go."

Seabury will be used in a variety of ways in the Timber Creek offensive scheme this season. He had a great spring game against Sebastian River, catching five passes for 160 yards and three touchdowns.

As a junior, Seabury, who also plays cornerback, played in just seven games before an injury sidelined him for the rest of the season. He ran for 173 yards and four touchdowns on 28 carries and caught 11 passes for 178 yards and two more scores.

Patrick carried the brunt of the offensive load for the Wolves last year, rushing for 2,032 yards and 29 touchdowns on 210 carries. Timber Creek finished last season 10-2, losing in the second round of the Class 8A state playoffs to eventual state champ Apopka.

UMike.

I have WAY more respect for Danny Dillard than they're giving him. ((Dallas Crawford too for that matter.)

UMike

roach...I just pass the in on lol...I honestly do not know much about Dillard, but I do think Crawford will be an explosive back up and make his touches count. Not to mention Crawford and catch and throw out of the backfield

roachcane77

"Hopefully this offer will spark the fire for other schools to offer me," Seabury said.

Doesn't sound like this kid really wants to be a Cane.

JMHO.

roachcane77

Yeah... Saw Crawford & Dillard LIVE and in person at the Naples scrimmage.

They are BOTH difference makers...

---------------------------------------

Agreed.

UMike

roach..I agree, I thought the same thing

UMike

But, at least the kid is honest and doesnt say "i really hope Miami offers me" as if he will commit when he just wants more attention

trianglecane

it seems like a lot of schools use us to recruit players. Once we offer.. Boom! they offer.

UMike

Triangle...that maybe true..but its good to know it snot the other way around lol..means the staff is doing their own homework

trianglecane

Yup. besides after the win's it won't matter who else is offering, everyone will want to be in Carol Gables.

SOUP

Hey Soup were you a Cane since 86, or did you graduate in 86?

Posted by: CalgaryCane | July 11, 2013 at 08:04 PM

Canes fan since 1973, graduated from UM in 1986.

The Dude

I'm only here to try and get a tshirt offer, hoping that it triggers other blogs to offer a tshirt also, lol.

The Dude

50 days til kickoff.

Posted by: trianglecane | July 12, 2013 at 02:40 PM

For sure... I believe that that is why Al has offered so many DTs. That way nobody knows which DT we really want. He's learnt from last year that many schools use us as scouts.

I like what I see with the recruiting that Al has done.

SOUP

Good luck with that.

Terrance Sullivan

The Dude newsflash its 49 days till kickoff. Go Canes.

trianglecane

Random thought...

The words "epic" and "awesome" are being used to describe too many things that are less than epic or awesome.

Back to Football! Go Canes!!

Last night was EPIC.

I'm here to annoy people and be snarky. Occasionally, I look intelligent...

...in all seriousness though, the Space is really the most progressive and comprehensive UM site out there.

trianglecane

Soup, did you smack charlie strong in the face with a bull shark? Because then your night was epically awesome.

Sarasota 'cane

It's even better now that all the negative nonsense has dissipated! It's also no doubt the reason why so many of the old school canespace bloggers are trickling back in.

Go 'canes!

The Dude

49 days? EVEN BETTER!

Terrance Sullivan

Exactly Dude! Go Canes.

Skool...that IS too funny! Reading the comments makes me long for the days of Solar's comedic relief here on The Space.

86Cane

Funny, even Twitter is dried up. I must have "unfollowed" too many people?

Barry Jackson:

### Already with 20 oral commitments, UM continues to pursue a bunch of other players in the 2014 class, including Raleigh-N.C. four-star receiver Braxton Berrios, who reportedly is strongly considering Miami. He grew up a Canes fan and has cousins in Miami.

And four-star junior college defensive tackle Corey Johnson told rivals.com that he will choose between UM and Kentucky.

### UM players continue to anticipate that Wisconsin starting defensive end David Gilbert will transfer to UM, but the school says it's still not definite. And with a history of foot problems, he must be cleared medically. Having graduated from Wisconsin, he would be eligible to play immediately.

CGNC - Hi to U, CGNC. Always great to see U around. I've been doing my best to keep my emotions in check, but U have no idea as to just how bad I want the Canes to pound the $h!t out of the Crocs on Sep 7.

I know it's just one game, but my love for the Canes & dare I say hate for the Crocs couldn't be farther apart!

Prayin for Hurricane Ibis to do some SERIOUS damage inside Sun Life that Sat afternoon!

Pre83

My Solar post just reminded me of something - I know this will make sense to only the old school 'Spacers, but I heard a Jackson Browne song just a day or so ago & I swear every time I hear a JB tune I think of Solar & him playin' his drums to some JB tracks : )
