What does Redwine do well again?

Dude

Stop the hate. The kid can grow & FS could be a good spot for him.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Junior Sheldrick Redwine has taken a seemingly smooth transition from cornerback to safety this spring and is likely to be a starter this fall.


“Right now I feel like he’s one of our 11 best football players,” defensive coordinator Manny Diaz said. “I think he plays, even on Saturday (in the scrimmage) and on Tuesday in our last practice with shoulder pads on, he is enjoying the physical side of the football game. He’s enjoying it.

“I think he has the most what we call a bite--any time you make a man go backwards against his will—and I think he leads the safeties in bites. You would say, ‘Well can he handle the physical position going from playing on the edge of the field to the middle of the park and he seems to enjoy that the most. I’m happy for what he has done, but we don’t play this weekend and we don’t play until September and we’ll figure it out between now and then who starts.”

Redwine has been ahead of sophomore Robert Knowles and freshman Amari Carter during the spring and has taken the adjustment in stride and understands he is expected to be a physical presence at 6-foot-1 and close to 200 pounds.

“The biggest different is probably playing in more space as opposed to playing corner,” Redwine said. “You’ve got to make more open-field tackles coming downhill making more tackles.”

Redwine played in 12 games last season, starting five, and had 28 tackles and two pass breakpus with one forced fumble.

Although he fell behind then-freshman Malek Young in the cornerback depth chart ltae in the season, Redwine appeared to be on his way to competing for a starting spot in the spring alongside Young with the graduation of corners Corn Elder and Adrian Colbert.

However, Jamal Carter and Rayshawn Jenkins also graduated at the safety spot and the Hurricanes will be adding three capable corners in the summer thus leaving a crowded path for Redwine to start at corner.

“Wherever they want to put me at, that’s what I’m going to try to do and be the best at it,” Redwine said.

Diaz approached Redwine the idea in the offseason to let him know Redwine would be switching positions.

Redwine’s initial reaction: “I’m a football player. If you want me to play that, I’m going to go play it.”

Redwine says he wasn't surprised he was asked to switch positions.

"I don't think I was surprised," Redwine said. "It's football. We all have to go out there and play."

Redwine has been playing next to Jaquan Johnson at safety. The two played high school ball together at Killian and are roommates.

“He does everything right so I’m trying to imitate him and try to do everything right,” said Redwine, who played safety in high school the first four games of his senior year with Johnson sidelined.

The Hurricanes conclude spring ball on Saturday.

Let our defensive guru Manny Diaz tell U:

Sigh

First off I'm not hatin

Redwine was moved to FS because he was a liability at CB but I think he's good enough to get us through the season in a 2 deep rotation until tha Tru' Head Hunters arrive. What's gonna happen when the offense spread us out and he has to play press/man coverage

You better hope teams don't play action game plan for Redwine

Ohio_Cane

If he's as bad as U say, Amari Carter will start over him and he won't play as often.

CaneRock

I like the Redwine move to FS, Carter's built more like a SS to me.

Go Canes!

I thought Redwine played well at times and gave up plays at time.

I never found him to be such a liability that he was hurting the team consistently.

What did Luke do now? Lol... Dude, just been raising the baby and working towards adoption and enjoying the chaos that is my son's senior year.

Dude

Good on you.

Luke was saying he likes Kiffin's staff more than Miami's. Maybe that's what Go was talking about.

Dude

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | April 21, 2017 at 01:35 PM

This whole staff looks pretty savage. If I could rank my coach search all over again, I'd probably bump Richt up 2 spots. If he can make the offense hum this year, there's zero reason to believe he cant win a title.

Dude

Is it too early to have a 3rd rum & coke? lol

UMike

I loved Diaz comment about the DT's , something along the lines of whoever shows up pissed off because the offense is trying to run on him will play. We need that mentality, like who the f$&k are they to think they can run on Miami

Dude

I swear I was going to post the exact same thing a couple of days ago.

Once you've finished the second one, it no longer matters what time it is.

Mallory bloodlines:

allory's dad, Mike Mallory (1981-85), and uncles, Doug Mallory (1983-87) and Curt Mallory (1988-91) all played at Michigan. Mike, a former teammate of Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, was an All-Big Ten linebacker and is now the assistant special teams coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Curt was a secondary coach at Michigan from 2011-14 and is now the head coach at Indiana State. Doug is a defensive backs coach with the Atlanta Falcons.

UMike

So why do you think he isn't going to Michigan? Lol

Maybe his dad knows Harbaugh has about 1 more season at Michigan before he hauls ass back to the pros.

Or maybe he thinks Harbaugh is a d**k.

UMike

Go, that is very true

Mallory to Miami is huge and speaks volumes. Harbaugh is a jerk but he can flat out coach. If a Michigan legacy who has seen good NFL coaching decides to go to Miami, that speaks volumes for Hartley and this coaching staff
