The Work 7-13: Paradise Camp preview

**In terms of the amount of sheer talent coming to campus and the scale of the event that Mark Richt and his staff have planned, this is the biggest recruiting weekend of all-time in Coral Gables. The expected visitor list can be found here - https://www.canesinsight.com/thread/...visitors/99809. I will be there covering the "Paradise Camp" both days and will have live updates on the websites. I'm expecting multiple commitments and this should really set things in motion for the remainder of Miami's class.

So from that list, what should you be looking for?

Commitment watch - I'm not saying these guys will commit for sure, but I've heard they are some of the most likely to do so.

1. WR Evidence Njoku - David Njoku's younger brother is likely to commit this weekend, from what I've heard. Njoku just transferred to Wayne Hills in New Jersey (school of former Cane Kevin Olsen for those interested).

2. DB Brian Edwards - Miami has increasingly been on Edwards over the past month or so and is an absolute priority for safeties coach Ephraim Banda. His mother will see Coral Gables for the first time in her life this weekend, which could go a long way in a possible commitment. Edwards' mentor and 7-on-7 coach Shawn Rose told me that he will also be working both days of the camp.

3. OL Zalon'tae Hillery - I'm hearing that there's a good chance Hillery could commit to the Canes this weekend. A guy who has flown a bit under the radar, Hillery is teammates with Miami's biggest recruiter, Deejay Dallas.


Miami making a move - These are a few names that are either committed elsewhere or Miami is perceived as trailing another school. Based on what I'm hearing, the Canes could significantly improve their chances with these recruits over the weekend.

1. OT Alex Leatherwood - The Miami staff will push early playing time hard to the Alabama commitment this weekend. I've heard from a couple different people that this is not a free trip and Leatherwood is coming into this visit with a very open mind when it comes to the Hurricanes.

2. LB Bradley Jennings, Jr. - The Florida State commit and legacy will be on campus once again this weekend. For months, it has seemed almost as if the Miami staff has been on him harder than FSU. Jennings, Jr. has felt the love from the Canes coaches and this will be a good chance for him to be around other Miami commits.

3. WR Devonta Smith - The top player in Louisiana, Smith is just about down to Alabama and Miami, according to multiple sources. Alabama holds a lead here, however the speedster will be a top priority for Miami coaches this weekend. The Crimson Tide have had him on campus countless times, which is something that gives them an edge here. He will be making his decision in August, freshly off of this visit. Miami very much in the mix here.


Solidifying their status - Here are some recruits that Miami fancies their chances with and this weekend should strengthen their chances.

1. Safety Amari Carter - The Palm Beach Gardens product is a two team battle right now with Notre Dame and Miami. Miami feels that they lead right now and Carter will bring his older brother along with him on the trip. He will be here from Friday-Sunday.

2. RB Anthony McFarland - The all-purpose back out of Maryland named Alabama his leader at the opening last week, but the Canes are right there and I think they could be back on top after this weekend. His relationship with Thomas Brown is key here and this is his second time in Coral Gables in a few months. Big for Miami to get him back on campus.

3. RB Robert Burns - Burns is a Miami commit, but ND has been looming with him. The Hurricanes have not been worried about him leaving elsewhere, and that's a credit to his former high school coach Jorge Baez, who works at Miami in player personnel. A source told me today that Burns has been in contact with Alex Leatherwood, so that could be an interesting connection this weekend.


**A source tells me that the Columbus trio of Trajan Bandy, CJ Henderson, and Josh Jobe (2018) are unlikely to attend because Columbus has had a team camp scheduled for some time and they are obligated to go. I'm told they're "bummed" that they can't make it, but Miami is not sweating it because that group has been on campus 4-5 times over the summer and they are expected back again in the next week or so.

**American Heritage CB Marco Wilson is reportedly nearing a decision. The people that I've reached out to on Wilson believe that he is not leaning either way right now between Miami and Florida (or at least he hasn't indicated so), so this is a BIG weekend for the Canes with him.

**Quick update on Dionte Mullins and Cedrick Wright. Wright is good to go, according to a source, and will arrive on campus in a few weeks. Mullins now has the test score needed to enroll, I'm told, but is finishing up his final online class and is in line to become eligible and enroll for the fall semester barring an unexpected hiccup. Miami was more concerned with his test score than credits/GPA. The biggest hurdle seems to have been jumped.

Here is an expected list of guest coaches that is still growing. I'm told there will be more than this too. Look for all to be announced on Twitter by Mark Richt over the next couple of days.

Michael Irvin
Jon Beason
Phillip Buchanon (officially announced)
Jeremy Shockey (officially announced)
Brett Romberg (officially announced)

I don't know if coach Richt can win a title at Miami, he had a bunch of disappointing loses at UGA. I think he can win a bunch at Miami though, a bunch of ACC titles and maybe build a juggernaut without the likes of very strong SEC schools picking of local talent and delivering a grueling schedule. All that aside, it's been a refreshing change to see these kinds of moves and say finally we have someone who actually knows wtf they are doing. What's a Miami fan to do if he can't bitch about the head coach? Lol. Coach Richt has been a huge sigh of relief. I'm comfortable with everything about our direction again.

Mark from Atlanta

Canes brothers!
Good afternoon to all.
This camp is going to do great things to "remind" & "emphasize" young men of what can be done in life as a family.

The U is truly like no other. ...CMR is doing the right things to get this program back to prominence.

Obviously, the most important of those begins with Winning. ..

I too want to echo the sentiments of Harry Miller's comments on this post...

SOUP - YOU DA' MAN! Canespace connects our U across the globe!
All walks of life..no matter. ..we are a family. ..
Thanks for the hard work you put in for our enjoyment!

God bless you and Go Canes!

^^^ Still unsure wtf this was. I mean if you didnt know after this... hide your children parents of Kendall... idiots want to coach your kids.

Seriously though, will someone please take away Mark's influence in SoFL? We cant have this guy around kids who might be Hurricanes some day.

From what I hear Canespace kicked in the last $150k and we are good to go.

So Dino is coaching kids?
What a great way to turn them off football -- running complicated schemes that require homework after every practice

Staff pulling savvy move with Columbus trio

As I posted in The Work last night, Trajan Bandy, C.J. Henderson, and Josh Jobe (2018) will
Not be at paradise camp due to a prior obligation with the Columbus team for a 7-on-7 camp.

I'm hearing though that the staff will host the families of these three this weekend regardless. Parents, siblings, etc. Thise three expected on campus next week as well.

That's how you get it done.

thirstybuzzardcane

It's so refreshing to see where this football program is headed. Can't wait for Aug. 4!!!!

thirstybuzzardcane

Can you imagine being a high school kid and being coached by some of the best players who have played the game, WOW!!!! Great work Mr. Richt!!!

thirstybuzzardcane

You can bet that some of our new coaches are even going to be star stricken.

Dude, that picture is a fake. Do you not recall all those times we were told on here that D'no was schematically sound, he didn't use the prevent as a base and nobody ever was lined up a zip code away from the ball? If I could only remember who it was that told us that...

Lur-ker

Who said that?

Hunt the post like the resident psychopath did.

The Dude

The casualties number from this Nice attack are staggering...

Go Canes!

And the number of children...

We as a country need to start thinking ways we never thought we could or would if we're going to change the direction of this battle we're very obviously losing right now.

The Dude

^^^ Like what though? I think first we have to decide if we are in this fight or not.

Europe may be losing a battle. We are not. Our populations aren't excluded from opportunity like in France. I'm not willing to lose my rights or disavow what we stand for because Europe sucks.

TonyCane

This is awful.

Go Canes!

Epi you're one of the smartest dudes on this blog. There's no way you can't see the tidal wave overwhelming Europe right now is heading straight for us.

It's not about giving up rights, it's about defining a very real ideology that in today's environment may hurt some feelings and taking steps to monitor and remove those we overwhelmingly feel subscribe to it.

What opportunities are people excluded from in France?

Pretty bold statement. Back it up.

Our WR corps just got thinner.

Thankfully we have good freshmen and a JC transfer coming in but still a little scary in terms of depth.

Can't afford too many more WR injuries.
