Kaaya is among the 13 top preseason heisman finalists according to Bovada. I would be surprised if Kaaya doesn't have one of the best statistical years for a QB in the history of Canes football.

Heisman winners must not only have outstanding individual performance, but must play for winning teams. Shows that there are high expectations for CMR and the Canes in Las Vegas.

On Tuesday, Florida offensive quality control staffer Marquel Blackwell visited Naples (Fla.) High for Miami cornerback commit Tyler Byrd. However, Blackwell was not able to meet with the 5-foot-11, 195-pound Byrd.

"They tried to visit me, but my coach doesn't really let that happen as long as it's through him," Byrd told 247Sports' Nate Adelson. "Schools can reach out to me directly and if I choose to reply, then that's different. Somebody from Florida showed up at school, but I didn't see them. The only reason I knew is because somebody Tweeted it. That was the first time they showed any interest since like December or November."

Byrd was originally committed to Florida, picking the Gators before his sophomore season. However, during the coaching transition from former head coach Will Muschamp to new head coach Jim McElwain, Byrd backed off his pledge in favor of Miami nearly a year ago.

The 247Sports Composite, an industry generated average, currently ranks Byrd as the nation's No. 138 overall prospect in the 2016 class.
