LB, Calvin Heutelou is in, but Wyche has to wait. That is what I said "assuming he gets in."

SinisterCane

Kiss of death always seems to be "Miami is my dream school"

UMike

I thought Coker already sat out a year, I good be wrong though. He just wasnt signed anywhere. I remember before the season people talking about he maybe coming to Miami, that would indicate he already wanted to transfer before the season.

UMike

Sinister, that does seem to be true over the last few years, but this kid Spence is a great example of what kid should do if their true "dream school" offers.

UMike

I'm starting to think the "dream school" things might not mean the same thing to each kid. Maybe a "dream school" just happens to have all the things you like, but not necessarily the place you grew up rooting for lol, I saw where Howard's mom said Georgia was his dream school, and that was after he was already at Miami lol

I used to think that too, but I'm starting to lean to what Chad Wilson said...these kids need to WAIT! These coaches ain't nothin' but salesmen:

“The reason you are seeing all these decommitments is because some kids are finally taking their official visits now and seeing schools and changing their minds,” Wilson said.

“It’s sad because the fan bases get on Twitter and get on the kids when in reality it’s just a flaw in the system. You speed things up and that’s what is happening.”

The Bo Scarbough stuff? No point in reading into that right?

No chance Miami steals this kid? And He would start from day one if we did right?

Duke and him would be used in tandem.

UMike

CR... I hear that, just saying if a school is truly your dream school, there is no need for visits. Or you can say, "while this school could be my dream school, I would be doing myself a disservice to not look at all my options" lol

LB

"Kiss of death always seems to be "Miami is my dream school"

That's reason 23 why I can't take recruiting seriously.

Go Canes

@_Dbkiller: University of Miami Offer #UM 🙌 #Canes #Blessed

UMike

Go Canes... I seen so many of those on my Twitter feed yesterday I couldn't keep up with them all lol

True. But remember, these are teenagers, you can pressure those kids into just about anything. I've got two of em', you should see the half the crap that they buy LMAO!

UMike

CR, I agree.. they easily get caught up in the moment

3-Star WR Kahlil Lewis from Miramar

UMike

I THINK it was Kahlil Lewis who was quoted as saying he wants to keep the Miramar-WVU pipeline going. His is a WVU commit, and his former coach is now at WVU which explains the recent commitments from Miramar to WVU, including Miami target and 4-Star DB Kendrell McFadden

UMike

James Coley getting fired up lol

"Canespace is my dream blog"

Ohio_Cane

CaneRock, why doesn't he have to sit out? How did those strings get pulled?

Posted by: CaneSawMassacre | January 27, 2014 at 08:39 AM

CSM...I'm assuming He graduated.

Posted by: CaneRock | January 27, 2014 at 08:42 AM
------------------------------------

This. Coker graduated so no rule he has to sit out.

Ohio_Cane

Whyche is qualified, the only thing he's waiting on is an appeal to be an EE or not. ACC rules say U have to be at a junior college for 3 semesters to get into an ACC school. He's been at his JUCO for 2 semesters. He's in in May regardless.

86Cane

Posted by: UMike | January 27, 2014 at 09:19 AM

Well there is that and having the WVU admission requirements of:

1. Is he breathing?

2. Can he spell "touchdown".

3. Can he sign an "X" on a LOI?

UpNorthCane27

Having Kevin Beard as the OC for the south Florida express has to help out the Canes one way or another.

Ohio_Cane

U know what's funny, we talked about Scarbrough here months ago. Not that he was coming to UM or anything, but that he was giving us a real look.

It's interesting to read that this staff has been on him "hard" and "quietly". I wonder why the hush hush?

If this kid goes through with his visit this weekend, we're in it. Wow, what a pull this would be.

Ohio_Cane

Don't know if it's been posted here, but there's talk of Ice Harris joining Golden's staff as some form of "quality control". Needless to say, this would go a LONG way in landing Treon Harris. Lol

UMike

Not just Treon, but South Florida/Miami kids. Ice is well respected and trusted in those areas.

UMike

Fisher & Brewster coming to Miami or some visits today it looks like

UMike

Safid Deen saying Coleys Tweet was answering back at Brewster's 305 Tweet.... interesting

UMike

2015 DE Jason Strowbridge from Deerfield BEach who the Canes offered a month or so ago got offered by Bama.

Ohio_Cane

Why Bama offering so LATE, UMike??

YUP

CaneRock

Ice for "quality control"? For which side of the ball?...offense I'm assuming. Nevertheless, getting Ice back is a smart move, the guy knows His Xs & Os, and like UMike said, He's the Dean Of Coaches in Dade.

LB

"Well there is that and having the WVU admission requirements of:

If he's got ties to the coal/chemical companies, he'll have a free mansion.

Now dont go starting.. Ive been positive all morning lol... BUT... that is early for an out of State school to offer lol

UMike

Ken Dorsey was one of the Pro Bowl coaches

Go Canes

@CoachColey: It's TIME, this is MIAMI!! #StormTroopers #My-ami

Terrance Sullivan

Great blogging fellas. Happy Manic Monday peeps. I will be glad when signing day is here we see who all signed with us check out their bio info and film tape and how they will be incorporated into the 2014 Canes team and so forth and so on, I am eagerly anticipated the Canes Four Play in 3 weeks in Miami. Go Canes!

Lol, relax. I'm not starting anything. Just joking around

UMike

UM Baseball #16 ins Baseball America Preseason Poll

UMike

I know Ohio lol.. but I do think that is how i should work.. the local school offers early, and the out of State schools follow, not the opposite lol

CaneSawMassacre

Umike...Then we have a situation where a kid is committed that we never wanted.

Be smart and let the process play out..

If the kid chooses a school just because they offered early, in the end he will learn and come to regret his choice.

And this should be the run down whomever the coach is.. You don't just offer because other schools are.

UMike

CSM... every year we get a kid who commits that we dont really want lol... Dennis Turner is this years example. You can always push a lesser talented guy out if needed, it happens all the time at every school, just part of recruiting.

But the staff is starting of right with the 2015 class, they got all the elite guys offered and threw out a ton of offers yesterday.

Nice Miami Herald write-up on the Linder's & McDermott's

University of Miami O-line is a band of brothers

Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/2014/01/2...#storylink=cpy

UMike

Also, I dont think a kid should commit just because a school offered early. I just like the idea of the offer if only for the appearance you are after the South Florida kids. I think that is why you see so many de-commits every year, they choose to early.

LB

If the newer brothers pan out like the older ones, they'll be paving the way for 1,000 rushers in no time.

CaneRock

UMike, hows about THIS!...Ice Harris can be the HC against FSU,Louisville,Duke, & VT...and Al Golden can coach the rest? LMAO!

Duke was soo close this year, playing only 7 1/2 games, had 920 rushing yards.

CaneSawMassacre

UMIKE I get the idea. The problem is.. We all know South Florida is a hot bed. We also know, the primadonna culture created.

You start offering too many kids you don't want and pushing them out before NSD..

You create a serious rift..

We don't have that type of clout right now. You have to be winning things before you do that. ala... Alabama, FSU, Auburn.

LB

"Duke was soo close this year, playing only 7 1/2 games, had 920 rushing yards."

The silver lining is that multiple folks from this site have told me that it is extremely reasonable to expect a fully healthy Duke Johnson in 2014. Pain may be an issue, though.
