So Lets Get this Straight On one hand we want these kids to have the heart and desire of the CANES of yesteryear…BUT….Nigel Bethel is a kid with those qualities and he said to have character issues because he chooses not to play here? Yes there D sucks at TTech too but guess what they Suck because of talent (sound familiar) at Least they aren't running Swiss Cheese!! Until We Stop Running Swiss Cheese How can U get mad at a kid for deciding otherwise..I believe our kids are talented I believe that the scheme is stupid…Bottomline..

FSU rides a 13-0 late run and beats UM, 63-53. UM falls to 9-7, 1-3. Kirk (21) and Brown (21) only Canes with more than 4 points.

Dang. Tough loss for my Canes tonight. Get ready for GT on Saturday.

DT Lamont Gaillard update
From CIS:

Per Kipp Adams


Says he's told Miami is pushing for Top247 DT Lamont Gaillard, a UGA commitment. The Canes might have a shot to earn an official visit with the departure of DL coach Chris Wilson.

j.w.

Basketball is going to frustrate all of us this year. But baseball is just around the corner, and I'm hoping that Morris silences the doubters (myself included) wit ha run to Omaha.

It's great to see former Canes Ray Lewis and James Jones with the Miami Heat in the new video " UM Building Champions"

From Barry Jackson Miami Herald...

Recruiting class a look at the offense.

WEDNESDAY JANUARY 15 2014

The Hurricanes’ offensive recruiting class includes a 10-top quarterback, a top-10 running back, an offensive line class that ranks among the best in the country, pretty good receivers –-- but none considered on the level of Stacy Coley ---

Chatter on UM’s 12-member offensive class, three weeks from National Signing Day Feb. 5:

### Quarterback: It’s critical that UM hold on to Brad Kaaya, the West Hills (Cal.) prospect who is rated the No. 10 quarterback by Rivals.com and the No. 128 overall prospect by ESPN.

Ed Croson, his coach at Chaminade High, told me Tuesday that he spoke to Kaaya this week “and I think he’s coming to Miami. I think he’s really excited about the coaches there.”

Kaaya, who has a very good relationship with UM offensive coordinator James Coley, did not respond to text messages this week about whether he definitely will attend UM and wouldn’t rule out the Bruins in a late December interview with Canesport.com, saying: “I don’t know… Right now, I’m committed to Miami.”

But around the same time, he told another Rivals.com reporter that he plans to stick with Miami, and it was encouraging that he flew from Los Angeles to Orlando merely to watch a UM bowl practice.

Kaaya --- who threw for 3113 yards, 22 touchdowns and five interceptions and completed 62.5 percent of his passes --- said Coley told him that he “has a chance to start right way” if he beats out front-runner Ryan Williams and Kevin Olsen.

ESPN’s Tom Luginbill said Kaaya is similar in some ways to Stephen Morris but “has been blessed with better size [6-4 to 6-2] for the position and has a higher ceiling.”

UM loves his physical tools, decision making and intelligence. Coley --– speaking in general, not about anyone in particular --– has said in the past that he likes tall quarterbacks.

Local recruiting analyst Charles Fishbein, who has watched Kaaya, said he’s the NFL style-type quarterback they haven’t had in a while. Big, strong arm. James Coley got on him before anybody else did.”

CBS Sports’ Tom Lemming said “Kaaya wasn’t heavily recruited a few months ago but had a great year. Best quarterback in California.”

UM’s other oral pledge at the position, Mobile (Ala.) Faith Baptist’s Malik Rosier, told Canesport.com that he is 100 percent committed to UM. He completed 56 percent of his passes for 1,798 yards with 15 touchdowns and four interceptions and ran for 1275 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Rosier, who runs a 4.4 in the 40-yard dash but needs to shorten his release, told Canesport.com’s Matt Shodell that he expects to have an immediate role because “I can run. That’s what I bring to the table. Even if I don’t win [the job], I can play on third-and-short in a zone read package to get four or five yards. Coach Coley’s talked to me about that.”

### Running back: Only one committed, but he's a very good one and he's already enrolled. Miami Central’s Joseph Yearby ran for 1700 yards on 9.6 per carry this past season and “he’s right there with Duke Johnson as a prospect,” recruiting analyst Larry Blustein said. “Speedy, quick, tough to bring down.” Yearby is rated by Rivals.com as the nation's seventh-best running back and 54th best player overall.

Daniel Gresham,another running back, has interest in Miami after Louisville parted ways with him Sunday.

Still, there are mixed messages on that front; earlier this week, Salinas (Cal.) JC running back Deandre Mann, who backed up Lamar Miller at Killian, was led to believe Miami would offer him.

### Offensive line: Lemming said the quartet of Palm Beach Central tackle K.C. McDermott (rated 44th among all prospects by ESPN), Central tackle Trevor Darling (No. 115), St. Petersburg tackle Reilly Gibbons (No. 246) and St. Thomas Aquinas’ Nick Linder (rated the 14th-best center by Rivals.com) is the best 2014 offensive line class in the country: “McDermott dominates almost every play, and Darling might have as much potential.” Linder, a center, can also play guard.

Blustein said Darling “is not on Ereck Flowers’ level yet but has a chance to be.” Darling and McDermott are enrolling this month. Darling and McDermott are already enrolled.

### Tight end: Norcross (Ga.’s) Christopher Herndon, who is rated the nation’s No. 19 tight end by Rivals. UM projects him as an H-back but Herndon expects to be a receiver (which he played last season) or tight end here. Herndon, 6-4, helped lead his team to the Georgia 6A title with 33 receptions for 543 yards and six touchdowns.

### Receivers: UM has one four-star prospect (Raleigh, N.C.’s Braxton Berrios, rated No. 43 among receivers by Rivals.com) and three three-star prospects: South Dade’s Tyre Brady, Lantana Salaluces’ Darrell Langham and Carol City’s Trayone Gray).

Berrios --- a quick, shifty slot receiver who’s already enrolled --- will miss spring ball with a torn ACL. UM sees similarities between Berrios and former Miami Gulliver and ex-Duke standout Conner Vernon, who had 85 catches as a senior in 2012 and is now on Cleveland’s practice squad.

“Braxton reminds me of Wes Welker,” Lemming said. “He runs a legit 4.48, was a straight-A student, all-state as a senior.”

UM loves Tyre Brady (38 catches, 575 yards, nine touchdowns this past season) and believes he can become a faster version of Allen Hurns.

Trayone Gray, who played quarterback this past season, was a receiver in 2012 and can beat opponents deep. But Blustein said: “I predict he will be in the Super Bowl someday as a running back. He’s Chris Johnson all over again.”

Gray ran for 1221 yards and averaged 9.0 per carry in 2013. But Carol City coach and former UM assistant Aubrey Hill said Tuesday that "every indication I have is they want him at receiver. He can be very good" as a college receiver.

UM believes Langham, 6-5, can become a red zone target, a role that UM hoped D’Mauri Jones would fill but hasn’t. He had 35 catches for 458 yards and seven touchdowns this past season. “Has good, not great, speed --– a possession-type receiver,” Blustein said.

New Jersey’s three-star David Njoku, ranked the nation’s No. 100 receiver by Rivals, liked his UM visit and Miami has a decent chance to get him. Alabama and Ohio State reportedly want to make him a tight end.

Chaminade (Cal.) High two-star receiver Brayden Lenius, teammate of UM QB oral commit Brad Kaaya. UM has been recruiting him, and Lenius has interest Lenius caught 24 passes for 568 yards this past season.

CaneRock

With the exception of the WR from NJ, seems to me that we're done recruiting on offense...

CaneRock

Barry Jackson:

### Even with 28 oral commitments (seven of whom are early enrollees), UM has offered scholarships to a few players in recent days, including Cochran, Ga.-based two-star safety Tavon Ross (a soft Missouri oral commitment who also drew an offer from Georgia) and Tampa Jefferson High athlete Deiondre Porter, a USF oral commitment. Porter played quarterback this season and had a state-best 4683 yards and 53 touchdowns combined passing and rushing.

Ross is planning a visit here in two weeks. UM is trying to get Porter to visit.

UM also is making another push for Louisiana-based Malachi Dupre, the nation’s No. 1 ranked receiver, but luring him will be very difficult; dozens of school are after him.

A more realistic possibility is Chaminade (Cal.) High two-star receiver Brayden Lenius, teammate of UM QB oral commit Brad Kaaya. UM has been recruiting him, and Lenius has interest, though it's unclear if it will materialize into anything. Minnesota and Washington State are also in the mix for Lenius, who caught 24 passes for 568 yards this past season.

Good morning Spacers

We have reason to be positive SOUP.

A few on here mentioned MSU and how good they have been past few years, especially on defense. As I look into the path they took to get to a top defense and a top team, I see a lot of similarities with Golden/D'No.

I'm hopeful they follow the same path and get us to the top.

Go Canes

Just de-committed from Vandy . Wish everyone luck in the future

UMike

^^^ Sawyers last 3 visits are set for GT, Ole Miss and TN...we were on him early before he committed to Vandy... looks like we moved on

UMike

Ohio, I agree. There are multiple reasons to want Harris on your team outside of his talent.

UMike

According to Rivals 4-Star DE Olajuwon Tucker is planning a visit. He is a USC commit.

UMike

I got to admit, I do like that there isnt much drama heading into NSD this year. Outside of TV, there should be no big names that have us on our toes lol

UMike
