Digging deeper:

Miami has the highest rated class in the ACC Coastal.

Next highest class is Duke at 28. UNC 33, VT 37, Pitt 38.

I like how this class ranking wasn't inflated with just a bunch of recruits. Quality trumps quantity no more Walmart recruiting like golden did.

According to 247 10/18 recruits are 4 stars not bad at all

If stars matter as much as they say, the Canes should be coastal division champs for 10 straight years

decent class. time for coaching and winning to take care of future classes.

Go Canes!

There it is:

Richt: "As you all know, it took me a minute to get the staff together," but said he didn't want to rush the hires for recruiting's sake.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Lets walk a little before we run, we can start with walking all over the Coastal. We have the best class in the Coastal, the most talent in the Coastal and had the splash hire of the off season. MR needs to hold every coach to exceptional standards and cant be afraid to bring in quality coaches if he gets a chance. If Diaz can do what I think he can, no reason not to own the Coastal next year. Lets do this.

UpNorthCane27

i think this class is way better then decent USAFCane.... would we have been better with some dt's and other ol's yes for sure but lets think about this for a second we got some playmakers in this class.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Rumph being shut out of his own school is a warning sign, hes on my radar.

TonyCane

Far better class than 2011.

Herbieibis

Fsu signs 6 o-line and 3 dt's and Texas signs 5 dt's and we struggle to sign 2. This has got to change but we did sign 6 I- linemen last year.

Terrance Sullivan

Interesting:

Richt notes that Miami doesn't have 85 scholarships yet -- "I think we're back to full speed ahead next year."

Terrance Sullivan

The Probation ends in October 25th.

Mark Richt gives "credit to the prior staff" and says they did "a wonderful job"

Kind words, but if true, he wouldn't have the job right now.

I like what they did this year,considering we have new staff. Now go produce on the field, most important

1mg of Epi

Interestingly Miami has more ESPN 300 recruits (10) than a lot of the higher rated classes. So if Richt would've thrown out offers to a bunch of *** DL and CB, he would've posted class ranked somewhere around 10-12.

j.w.

I'm concerned about him as well, Dude.

D Line to work with

DT’s:
Gerald Willis (DT) 5 stars
Kendrick Norton (DT) 4 stars
Anthony Moten (DT) 4 stars
Ryan Fines (DT) 3 stars
Courtel Jenkins (DT) 3 stars
Tyreic Martin (DT) 3 stars

DE’s:
Chad Thomas (DE) 5 stars
D-Jax (DE) 4 stars
Al Muhammad (DE) 4 stars
Scott Patchan (DE) 4 stars
Pat Bethel (DE) 4 stars
Joe Jackson (DE) 4 stars
RJ McIntosh (DE) 3 stars

Again, potential talent is there with the star rating these kids have. We have some star power sprinkled with depth. Some others schools may have more, some with less, the difference is coaching.

Can someone prove or deny the talk we Canes fans hear about academic requirements for UM...vs...the SEC schools and others? I was just wondering if it keeps U from recruiting certain players we feel should be "in the mix " for? Just curious. ..thanks.

Love this statement by Richt

" I want all of our FB alumni to feel comfortable to come back home" This is huge, get those guys on the sidelines again, like back in the old days. Nice to have a coach that will push to get the alumni to contribute.

Uh oh, cans of Off should be flyin' off the shelves...

Florida Gov. Rick Scott has declared a health emergency in four counties of the state because of the Zika virus.

At least nine cases of the mosquito-borne illness have been detected in Florida. Health officials believe all of the cases are from people who contracted the disease while traveling to affected countries.

Scott signed the order Wednesday to cover Miami-Dade, Lee, Hillsborough and Santa Rosa counties.

The Zika virus is linked to brain deformities in babies and is causing concern among public health officials worldwide. The virus is primarily spread through mosquito bites, but investigators had been exploring the possibility it could be sexually transmitted.

U.S. health officials say a person in Texas became infected with Zika through sex in the first case of the illness being transmitted within the United States.

It's going to be tough playing with 5 dt's this season. Martin won't be ready and if we get a couple hurt it really will be tough. I like the potential talent but we'll need some breaks health wise.

Thoughts on the First Class of the Richt Era

I understand the frustration. This feels like every Signing Day for the past fifteen years. Byrd and Williams are studs at positions of need. It's a bottom-line business and those are bad losses.

But as much as it sucks, I understand how it happened. Williams is a country kid who tweeted "Go Ducks" when Miami offered. He got an SEC offer and jumped on it. Byrd, like Alex Collins, seemed to prefer the culture of a college town to the urban life of Miami.

Here's the bottom line: Richt is not an unproven commodity like Coker, Shannon or Golden. He has been a recruiting machine for 15 straight years. While we’ve been sniffing glue on Signing Day, he’s been smoking cigars. He didn’t forget how to recruit on the plane ride to Miami.

There’s a difference between making excuses and having perspective. This is a transition class where the prior coach was fired for poor performance. We finished 20th in the country. For comparison, Florida finished 21st last year. Butch Jones, the guy who stole Byrd and Williams, finished 24th in his first year. Golden was 33rd. Harbaugh was 37th. The second class is where you see the recruiting bump.

Transition class or not, we signed some future millionaires. These aren't guys you have to sell yourselves on. Coach Kool says that Joe Jackson is the best DE in the country and I agree with him. All three LBs are killers. We signed the best receiver in Dade (Mullins), Broward (Bruce) and Palm Beach (Richards). These are the elite South Florida playmakers that we've been missing for years. Jack Allison is a 6'6 All-American with a cannon. Travis Homer is the best RB in the state and one of the youngest players in the class.

If I told you after the Clemson game that we could fire Golden and keep all of these guys, everybody would've been thrilled. We also added some nice pieces around them without absorbing mediocre talent. A small class this year sets up a monster in 2017.

Finally, we made important geographical gains. Palm Beach and Jacksonville have been death traps for us. This year, we swept the top three players in Palm Beach and landed two stars from the Jacksonville area. We signed more top 50 players from Florida than any other school in the country, including UF and FSU. The elite national kids will come with a full year to develop relationships. Remember, Richt’s best players (Gurley, Green, Stafford, Murray) were from outside the state of Georgia.

The only thing that gives me pause is that we dropped guys like Desmond Phillips and James Wiggins who could’ve helped us at WR and CB. Hopefully, a full year to evaluate in Dade will correct those problems.

This is an obvious statement, but everything will come down to coaching. Richt has more than enough talent-- both inside the program and in this class -- to win early. If he has success on the field, he will compete for recruiting titles. The closest model would be Florida in the mid-2000s. Zook left behind good talent and a quarterback, Urban landed a solid transition class and a killer second class, coached the **** out of them, and the rest is history.

Signing Day mornings have been tough for us. But the evening is a time to reflect on the guys fulfilling their lifetime dreams. I cannot wait to watch these guys perform in the orange and green.

Sinister the most hilarious thing is the cupboard is essentially bare before today but none of the apologists for the supposed shortcomings of the signing class will actually say that because they still can't quit fatso in their little Gane hearts.

Stars count but so does coaching. How true...a 5 star guy has a lot of talent; rarely complete package. you take his raw exceptional talent and develop great fundamentals attitude commitment aggression humility teamwork.....then do it to the other 84 guys....then you have great talent and coaching.....then you win.

For coming in on the fly keeping it together MR did pretty good. So the trick is this: get it together in spring, some continuity electricity....and unleash it in the fall. No prediction but 11-1 10-2 very possible....but have a good year build on it and get on the path to greatness again. Harbaugh very impressive what he did....CS and TX as well.....but I think we will play different be different be aggressive and tough......and it has been a long time 12 years....I look forward to what MR rolls out. I think it will not be a NC.....but the product will be much better more competitive aggressive....run the ball....hit and pass it...should be good.
Nice to chat been a while back to my cave....AND REMEMBER....I may not blog....but I am listening reading watching......so be cool be nice to each other and get ready for a good year.

Great game by the Canes basketball team after that debacle at NC State. Took the lead late in the first half and were never really challenged at the end. Lawrence was phenomenal but every player stepped up. Always a pleasure to blow out a team especially ND.

As far as NSD, I think we did good. LBs were a serious need and that was addressed by some studs. I really don't know how good the guys on defense are because they were never coached to be in a position to make a play. I saw some flashes last year that makes me think we have more talent that just wasn't deployed by the previous staff. With these new guys, I expect a dramatic improvement just based on having a competent defensive staff.

On offense, we need to remember Richt is a Bowden disciple. He will pound the rock and get these OL guys in the best shape of their lives. Those guys need to step up. Blocking for the run is a first priority under Richt. Anything less will not be accepted because that is his philosophy. Alabama calls it toughness it is time for UM to do the same. If you can't block for the run you ain't going to last under Richt.

Isn't that old time Miami ball? It is also new time Miami ball. The beasts will come once the identity returns. Today, we are a step closer to being back than yesterday.

TonyCane

Most impressive was Strong. A&M, Baylor, T Tech, and Houston all had stronger classes....until the last 24 hours when he signed seven 4 star players and a 5 star player. That's an outlier performance and possibly a career saving day for Strong.

Miami will be surprisingly better next fall. We're so used to underperformance that we have forgotten what it's like when everything comes together.
