The 6-foot-4, 212-pound Van Dyke is rated the nation’s No. 10 pro-style quarterback in the 247Sports Composite rankings and the No. 268 player nationally, regardless of position. He considered offers from a bevy of ACC schools including Syracuse, Boston College, Duke, Georgia Tech, Louisville, North Carolina State and Pittsburgh. Michigan, Purdue, Minnesota State and Oklahoma State also extended offers.

From The Miami Herald:

Van Dyke, whom Rivals.com pegs as a four-star pro-style quarterback, is coming off a strong junior season for Suffield Academy. In nine games, the rising senior threw for 1,899 yards, 14 touchdowns and five interceptions in nine games in 2018, completing 57.1 percent of his passes. The 6-4, 212-pound quarterback also ran for 105 yards and one touchdown on 19 carries, and served as Suffield’s primary punter.

Van Dyke picked up his offer from the Hurricanes in the fall, and became one of the top targets for the new regime when Diaz hired Enos as his offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in January, especially after four-star Jacksonville Mandarin quarterback Carson Beck committed to the Georgia Bulldogs in March.

His commitment brings Miami’s 2020 class up to 12 players and Van Dyke is just the second prospect from outside Florida in the group, joining Louisiana cornerback Daran Branch.

Boom Baby

Go Canes!!

Manny doing things the right way. Bring in a QB every class.

I thought Van Duke was going to play basketball for the Tar Heels.
Smart move, playing starting qb at Miami would be a lot easier than getting on the floor with the Tarheels

Enos seems to love a challenge

I agree with Go Canes. At least 1 QB/class.

He should feel right at home. 57% passes completed will get him a starting job here, unless Enos works magic with the current group.
And a punting QB is nothing new in Coral Gables, as we've had a number of guys who specialized in "punting with their arm". Not that is has hurt the team much last season, the punts didn't travel farther downfield than most of our QB's errant passes.

Boy, I can't wait for the season to start and make me feel ashamed of all my negativity.

Lol Soupster Yesssss Yesssss like the State of Missouri Our Canes Gotta Show Me. I am still getting Eggs of my Face from 2018 Epic Fail Season.

Herbieibis

Well at least we got a QB for knows how long before he decomits but then again that seems to be the one position that we are immune to the decomits bug.
Not big numbers but has the size and arm and at least we have an able QB coach.
Got to go fetch some more talent at LB and fast. No need to mention the offensive tackle needs.

Kid has an arm.
His offensive line should commit with him

solarcane

I'm thinking we should get that number 5 receiver.

Phenom QB commits to UM? Why do I always see an image of Lucy pulling the football away at the last minute just as Soup is about to kick it?

And I'm not saying Soup looks like Charlie Brown...I thought it...but I didn't say it...

Lucy has got me on that same trick every year for the last 15. Not a good track record for me or my team?

It started with Patrick Peterson going to LSU and hasn't stopped since. It's the single biggest issue affecting the 'canes.

Sota,

"The more startling — and concerning — numbers for the Hurricanes: Eight players who attended high school in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties were drafted in the first three rounds, and none attended the University of Miami.

That number includes five in the first round, led by No. 2 pick John Bosa of Fort Lauderdale-St. Thomas Aquinas (Ohio State), No. 10 Devin Bush of Pembroke Pines-Flanagan (Michigan) and No. 16 Brian Burns of Plantation-American Heritage (Florida State)."

Until we start keeping the best players from South Florida IN South Florida we will not be "Great Again".

86Cane

But Bosa was always going to be a Buckeye regardless of where he was from due to family tradition. Bush and Burns I have no idea about.

Its about time she got hers Solar!

Go Canes!!

Bush was a package deal at Michigan.

Harbaugh gave his dad a job and he delivered Devin and Gil the safety.

UMike

Didn't the Flanagan head coach get a job at Michigan and take Bush and a teammate with him?

86Cane

So U see some battles U just can't win.

Terrance Sullivan

Win the Winnable Battles wether their in South Florida, The South, or the Nation. That's been Our Calling Card Since Lou Saban in 1977 perfected by Howard S. The Godfather in 1979 and is and remain the Orange and Green Print for eternity. Go Canes!

Herbieibis

Got to win consistently and convencienly. Got to truck the teams that shouldn't be on the field with us and got to learn how to won on the road.
Can't have up and down cruiting classes and we can't leave positions unfilled. Got to stop the bleeding trail leading out of So.Flo. losing to many kids of high caliber.
Winning with style and fun will get them back but we will never get them all.

NativeCane

Bush was a package deal?.... Oh never mind

86Cane

Native with a TWSS? No way!

solarcane

I think having the guys that left early the last few years being drafted so late, and the possibility they sit or get traded or cut makes the next group a little more cautious about leaving.

We are obviously over optimistic about how good a lot of our players are compared to players at other schools.

We have a legit coaching staff at all positions except maybe special teams.
We have a great strength and conditioning coach that's not over rated for the first time in forever.

Be interesting to see when the linebackers get drafted next year.

It's definitely TWSS especially after reading how fast Bush could fill the hole.

Terrance Sullivan

Solar the problem with that is a lot of programs have a way worse problem than we do. Take for Instance FSU or VT our two main yearly rivals they have had countless guys to leave early and a good number did not get drafted at all much less get drafted in late rounds. Every Year some 30 to 40% of players who leave early don't even get drafted. I am not worried about guys who get drafted because at least worst case scenario you got at least 100 thousand plus to start off with. As opposed to being undrafted free agents where usually you start out with 25 thousand dollars on average. And teams are more willing to give you more chances if you are drafted or other teams are willing to pick you up and your money will be better. So there is a difference. The Upside to Being Undrafted is if you ball out you can get to a big contract quicker but that is a minuscule amount of players.

1. We are obviously over optimistic about how good a lot of our players are compared to players at other schools.

2. Be interesting to see when the linebackers get drafted next year.

Posted by: solarcane | May 01, 2019 at 12:36 PM

1. THIS. I think the landscape of talent in college football has changed drastically in the last 10-15 years. These days the talent is much better across the board because the hyper media coverage and evaluation of HS players is a BIG $$$ making game.

And all players work out, eat well, get coached up, are strong and fast. Some have just a skooch more physical talent or speed, some more desire and drive and some are just more committed to learning the game and their position. Those are the only things setting players apart.

The talent gap between most teams ranked between 5-50 is almost negligible IMHO. I think the real talent gap is between the top 3-5 teams and all the rest. It usually takes a dominant player at QB, maybe a special RB or WR and/or one or two DL/DE to push a team over the top.

2. I agree 100%. True barometer I think. If our "best players" get drafted high then we know we have something there. If not, well then not so good. However, there are always a BUNCH of talented LBs to choose from each draft. I wonder how many are taken on average over the last 5 years in the NFL Draft?

TonyCane, where U at?

Preach!! I remember reading that great evaluators talent (Snelly, Bowden, Davis) could look at a kid and see that they could feed them, train them, put some pounds on them, and then turn the 2-3 star kid into a 5 star kid in a year or two. Those days are ova!!
The kids are all getting coached up in H.S. and their training regimens are on par with colleges at this point. There just are not as many "diamonds in the rough" anymore. What you see is what you get on signing day.

Go 'canes!!

Good stuff today guys.

Every year, University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame executive director John Routh hopes the Hurricanes will keep finding stellar athletes to honor among the best of the best.

And every year, of course, it happens.

Another group of former UM greats will be celebrated at 7 p.m. on Thursday at the 51st UMSHOF induction ceremony at Jungle Island.

The inductees include former football players Antrel Rolle (2001-2004), Vince Wilfork (2001-2003), Stephen McGuire (1989-1992) and Scott Nicolas (1978-1981); basketball star Constantin Popa (1991-1995); former pitching great Cesar Carrillo (2004-2005); 10-time track and field All-American Tabia Charles Collins (2004-2006); and for the first time, a rower, Dr. Jenny Krawec (2001-2004).

Speaking of LB needs, another one by-passes us to go to FSU. The beat just keeps on. McCluster to FSU. I just don't get the FSU love they get from these kids. They absolutely sucked and we're clueless last year.
