Go Canes!!

I thought this place got bad at times.

Just went on CIS to see if there was any updated recruiting info. All people do on that site talk trash about the dumbest things ever.

Not only is it impossible to follow, there's very little good discussion.

Makes us look downright civilized here on the space.

Go to Miami Diehards for good recruiting info.

**** LB X. Peters flips to FSU.

*** DT J. Chatman seems to be very happy about his FSU visit.

Looks like **** DL D. Briggs may have committed to FSU also. Miami might have an epic fail on its hands at DT. Nesta will mean everything.

Its not looking good at DT, LB or OT. Despite great work at multiple positions, this is so far an incomplete class. LB can be easily resolved with great work next year. OT & DT are a big issue unless next year sees a 5* at both spots.

Herbieibis

We’ve been having epic fails at DT, hello! One every year or every other year ain’t getting it. Macintosh and Bethel came in as DE’S. Can anyone name our last 15 true DT’S?

How far back can we go? Starting with Jerome Brown, Cortez Kennedy or Russell Maryland?

TonyCane

Coker’s success at recruiting wide receivers has been transferred to Richt and DTs this year. Hopefully we don’t start converting punters into defensive linemen.

Our last drafted DT was Kareem Brown? Is that right? 😩

Forgot about Michael Wyche, Plug, King, Ivey, Moore, Briscoe, who they wanted to convert to the position. I was talking about our last 15 or most rescent. A list of the who’s Who of DT’S

But how great would it be if we trotted a defensive lineman out to punt.

BigWindyCane1

Coach Kul May or may not have success on the recruiting trail, but IMO, he will develop those recruits who come to Miami into NFL draft picks . I am confident that the Canes DL will play at a high level next season

Herbieibis

Kul is a damn good coach but we need depth and right now we don’t have much, even with Silvera.

TonyCane

This is not true but...

MIAMI, FL (Sportslease) - Coach Mark Richt announced Monday that incoming kicker Bubba Baxa would instead be placed with the defensive line for the upcoming 2018 season. "We feel that there is a lot of room for Bubba to grow. A lot. At 195 lbs he had a frame that will allow for ample opportunity for growth, and girth." When questioned as to why the freshman was chosen for this position, Richt responded, "It all comes down to numbers and opportunity. We've come up short with the defensive line this year, but as we looked at the rest of our players one immediately stuck out. A player with a first name of Bubba has to be a defensive lineman, whether he realizes it or not."

^^^^ Tony... please start a thread on CIS with that! Gimme 10 minutes to get the popcorn ready. It’ll be goooooooood

TonyCane

One more...

MIAMI, FL (Sportslease) - Coach Mark Richt revealed additional steps that will be taken to fortify a thin defensive line for the 2018 season. In addition to converting kicker Bubba Baxa, Richt announced the verbal commitment of L'oa Samalu. Nicknamed "The Black Hole", this new recruit will arrive on campus this summer close to the age of many of the graduate assistants. At 23, L'oa spent the last four years competing in the ranks of the Japanese Sumo Association. Last year he rose to the rank of Ozeki and competed in the top Makuuchi division. However his dream was always football, and at 6'11" and 525 lbs he is projected to make an immediate impact.

Richt said that L'oa's near yokozuna level blocking and pivoting techniques wills serve him well this fall against the young and smaller offensive linemen that he will face. When asked why L'oa was nicknamed The Black Hole, Richt smiled and said, "Because nothing gets by him. Not even light."

nemo2002

Good stuff TC.

Incidentally, word on the street is that Coach Richt will resign as head coach of the Miami Hurricanes immediately after NSD to pursue his "calling" as a lay minister in Guatemala.

Why have we not pilfered the sumo ranks before?

Can't remember... is today the day you told everyone they should start ignoring me just like you?

Sorry that was last week, and the week before, and the week before.

Yet here you are, every single day, hanging on my every word...

Go Canes!!

Gonna try and remember this story as things progress. Looks like we are identifying this kid early in the process. He's currently unranked by every recruiting site and has no D1 offers:


Miami is the first Power 5 offer for Saint Augustine Pedro Menendez athlete Kenny Logan.

The junior told 247Sports's Hank South on Sunday the the picked up a bid from the Hurricanes after a talk with area recruiter Todd Hartley.

Logan, who is unranked by all major recruiting services at the time, impressed this past weekend at the Orlando Pylon 7v7 playing safety for a Burch Sports team that also featured UM Top100 wide receiver target Jeremiah Payton. He had a number of interceptions on Saturday and was also able to break up a pass or two on Sunday.

Logan (6-1, 178) went both ways this past season for Pedro Menendez also seeing time at quarterback and wide receiver. He has landed verbal offers from UCF and South Alabama in the past week.

CoCane

Willie,

Coaches get graded by wins and losses because it's their job to win or lose. Duh...

QB gets graded by performance and stats first. Only you ignore that. Rivers, Marino, Fouts, Papa Manning ain't win shyt but are hall of famers because performance and stats.

Dorsey, Tee Martin, Josh Huepel put up stats and won. They still didn't get much respect by NFL scouts because of performance.

If EVERYBODY judges QB by wins. Why are you the only one that doesn't know Nosier is garbage?

Anyone with common sense knows when they are watching a team win in spite of the QB (Tebow in Denver).

Only idiots say "but He's a winner". This is you...

Go Canes!!

As Signing Day approaches, Miami Hurricanes making a late push for defensive line help

BY BARRY JACKSON

Having lost its two starting defensive tackles and a key reserve, UM is making a late push to add interior defensive line players in advance of National Signing Day on Feb. 7.

UM didn’t sign any defensive tackles among the 19 players who committed during the mid-December early signing period, but one defensive tackle is orally committed to Miami (Plantation American Heritage’s Nesta Silvera) and UM is vigorously pursuing two others: four-star Keondre Coburn (a Texas oral commitment) and three-star Jacksonville Sandalwood’s Jordan Miller.

Miller was an under-the-radar prospect who was committed to Georgia Southern before he put together a highlight tape from his senior year. That senior tape was enough to draw offers from Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Virginia and UM in the past two weeks.

Before playing his senior year at Sandalwood, he played at Palatka, which went largely unnoticed by major programs. There are questions about the quality of competition he faced, but UM sees considerable upside in the 6-4, 330-pound Miller.

Miller told Canesport.com that “Miami’s No. 1 of course. I’ve been in Florida all my life, always watched the Hurricanes. I have a passion for the Canes — it’s always been my dream to go there.”


Miller was set to host an in-home visit with five UM coaches on Monday night.

Meanwhile, UM coach Mark Richt and defensive line coach Craig Kuligowski were in Houston Sunday for an in-home visit with Coburn, who’s a top priority.

After the visit, Coburn told Canesport: “It’s pretty much down to Texas and Miami and I’m committed to Texas still so they’d be ahead right now.”

Go Canes!!

Interesting about that Texas DT.

Been committed since August of last year but didn’t sign early.

Herbieibis

Just wanting to see how much they want him. Unless we are using the 3-4 defense and need a nose guard, why do we need a 6’1 DT?

His Royal Dudeness

Posted by: Herbieibis | January 29, 2018 at 01:50 PM

Vince Wilfork was 6'1". We just need him to hold up against the run, in running downs with Ford and thats it, we can worry about the rest later.

His Royal Dudeness

PS2 is visiting according to Ivins.

CaneRock

Miller's offer list seems to suggest academic issues. Probably just getting His $h!t together in the classroom, hence the flurry of P5 offers.

1mg of Epi

Miller had no offers because apparently no one heard of him. Don’t think uva and GT would offer guys with academic issues. But don’t worry, he said Miami is his dream school.... so he ain’t commin.

We'll be lucky to get Silvera signed.

His Royal Dudeness

Where is Ohio and UMike? This is usually their time to shine.

CaneRock

Unless the kid played in North Korea, a 6'4"/330# kid doesn't fly under the radar these days.
