The Miami football program hosted Ryan Rodriguez the 10th ranked center in the country in 2021 on Thursday and the Hurricanes are the current favorites to receive a commitment per 247 Sports.
Ryan Rodriguez the 11th ranked center in the class of 2021 was impressed with the Miami football program as told to Inside the U on Thursday following his visit to Coral Gables. Miami leads for 6’3, 280 Rodriguez according to 247Sports.Com, the partner site for Inside the U. Rodriguez also posted to Twitter about his visit.

Redshirt junior Corey Gaynor and sophomore Jakai Clark are the main centers on the Hurricanes roster this spring with senior guard Navaughn Donaldson who is out injured also able to anchor the middle of the Hurricanes offensive line. Offensive tackles Jalen Rivers and Chris Washington are the only 2020 signees on the Miami OL.

New Miami football coaches, offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee and offensive line coach Garin Justice are doing an excellent job in a short time since being hired in January building the Miami offensive line for the 2021 class. The Hurricanes received a commitment from OT four-star Michael McLaughlin last week.

The Hurricanes have held on to four-star offensive guard Laurence Seymore since Lashlee and Justice joined the Miami football staff. Rodriguez spoke to Inside the U extensively about his visit. The Hurricanes are in a great position to sign Rodriguez by own account and according to 247Sports.Com

Alpine, I realize that it must be hard for you being so aroused during UM basketball games. However, you really ought to keep your pants zipped - especially when you are watching the games live at the Watsco Center.

Michael Irvin II enters the transfer portal.

Not surprised...

Appeared in 31 career games for the Hurricanes. He caught 11 passes for 111 yards.

Good luck elsewhere Michael.

Winning will keep the commits from bailing. Bama wasn't stockpiling talent before Saban, Clemson wasn't until they started winning etc. I still clearly remember A. Cooper saying his love for winning outweighed his love for staying home. We win they will stay. Simple

damn, mompremier pours in 23 pts and the canes women still lose to the worst ACC team by 15??!!

- really glad i stopped watching the women a week or 3 ago

- meier has her off-season work cut out for her

- and what's up with baseball? were we REALLY written in as #1 for a while??!!

. . . after having to watch that "season" our football team just had, i thought the karma gods would give us a little more push
. . . but the gods seem to be channelling their inner "terry porter"

Tough loss tonight against a good UVA basketball team.

. . . several of my organs were clenched big-time during long parts of the game

- our D came to play last night!
. . . forced them into lots of TO's and difficult shots; kept a top-tier team below 50!!

- but the vaunted VA defense also showed up
. . . felt like most of our scoring came off amazing shots ... but mixed in with lots of untimely TO's and misses

- with the exception of lykes in the 1st half (out injured most of the 2nd half), i didn't think anyone stood out on the O side of the ball (though i appreciated stones' pair of 3-pointers)

anyway, good game ... would have been extremely heartbreaking, if we had needed that game for the postseason . . . since we didn't, chalk it down as another learning experience for our team

Dam Alpine, did u take the TonyCane stat class?
All I said is that, OGV speaks plain English when it comes to basketball observations but football, it's busted up pig Latin. U would need a WW11 decoding machine to decipher what he is talking about.

BigWindyCane1

I haven't done an analysis yet, but if I had to guess, I would say that Vasiljevik's struggles are in large part a function of a lack of ball movement by the Canes on offense this season, and Vasiljevik being asked to do more than he should.

Many good three-point shooters are "spot up shooters," so they rely on someone who drives and dishes out to the three point line, or a big man who also passes out to the three point line. The Canes are last or next to last in the ACC in assists, and probably have the highest assist-to-turnover ratio in the ACC.

Three-point shooting percentages (and frankly all shooting percentages) typically drop for most good shooters when they have to create their own shot and/or shoot off the dribble. Assists are usually a function of ball movement and good (high percentage) shots.

This season, Vasiljevik (and all of his teammates, frankly) has had to dribble and shoot and create his own shot much more than in the past. He has also been asked at times to take on a playmaker role, which is not something he can do. To his credit, he is trying to rebound and play defense more, but the Canes are among the worst in the ACC in rebounding and defense.

That is just my two cents. I watch the Canes play, and I just see two much one-on-one shot creation. It is fine to have that when the shot clock runs down, but there is too much of a reliance on individuality to score.

The promising element for the future is that the Canes have a number of players who can make plays when things break down. But next season, they need to fix that issue with the lack of assists and ball movement or they will continue to struggle on offense.

OGV: "you have to really closely read between the lines, or keep track of what's been going on the last three years, to divine that once he stopped being a reserve off the bench the team both ended up being a loser program and the numbers constantly drop as the minutes played go up. That's why it was hilarious to watch him get stapled to the bench against GT while his majority of minutes began to be handed to Beverly, who actually can play the sport and isn't a defensive liability by being a midget,"
Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | March 04, 2020 at 09:54 AM

- what are you talking about here?!
our last game was the GT game you're talking about: vasiljevik played 26 minutes (3rd most on the team)! and beverly only 12
. . . LOL regarding "stapled to the bench"!!

- the game before vs. ND, vasiljevik played 30 minutes (2nd most to wong's 31 minutes), while beverly played only 18;

- and the game before that vs. VT (3 OT's), vasiljevik played 44 minutes (2nd to stone's 47)!!! while beverly played just 9! i even posted about this, asking if someone knew if beverly was sick, 'cause i like beverly a lot, particularly because he's mostly a better ball handler than vasiljevik

. . . if you're counting, vasiljevik played 100 minutes the last 3 games to beverly's 39

-OGV: "the numbers constantly drop as the minutes played go up" . . . huh??!!
in the 5 games he played at least 40 minutes, his pts were: 15 (clemson), 13 (pitt), 19 (fsu), 18 (NCS) and 6 (VT)

- re: beverly
he's still a frosh … and in 574 minutes, he's had 67 TO's; vasiljevik in 948 minutes has only 26 TO's (wong 43 TO's in 561 minutes; i thought beverly played much better than wong the first 1/3 of the season, but then wong passed him; wong excelled as a frosh the last third of the season)
- offensively, they both have the same avg FG% (beverly .412; vasiljevik .411%), but vasiljevik is hitting .342 on 3's to beverly's .250; vasiljevik hit .875 on 64 FT's with beverly hitting .750 on 52

- the main reason i spit on your vasiljevik-bytch-feast, is that vasiljevik is someone who plays with a lot of heart . . . despite his midget'ness, for example, he averages 4.2 rebounds per game!
. . . you, on the other hand, are one of the worst bloggers on here, 'cause you're lazy & repetitive & spiteful and you stopped trying to up your game a long time ago! you need to get with felder and do some off-season training (soup can give you plenty of tips)

- would i feel better if we had more and better players? of course! who wouldn't?!
. . . but as i've said many times (to no effect) here: the FBI committed a crime against us with their insunations that were never cleared up, which caused our recruits to all jump overboard and decimated an entire class class

- WE WOUND UP WITHOUT A SINGLE SOPHOMORE THIS YEAR!!
. . . and the best juniors/seniors (lonnie walker, dewan hernandez, bruce brown) already took their skills to the pros early

- SO WE ARE LEFT PLAYER-POOR
+ we are not really a basketball school
+ we've had a number of injuries
= we've had to play vasiljevik, and under the circumstances, he hasn't disappointed me

- but yes, i look forward to having our frosh back as sophmores, together with some good new recruits
. . . and if we can keep them together and NOT be bitten by the injury bug, in their junior year, i think we can field a damn good team!

Even field level media has decided to dump on the recruiting blunder from down under now;
https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/preview?gameId=401168490
"(B)ad news for Miami senior guard Dejan Vasiljevic, who has long been regarded as one of the ACC's best 3-point shooters yet is in a slump.
His 3-point percentage was 41.1 percent as a sophomore but has since declined to 36.7 percent as a junior and 34.2 percent this season. In his past three games, Vasiljevic has made just 2 of 16 shots from deep (12.5 percent)."
Regarded by who exactly, again? Blob name changing sidtard sockpuppeteer trolls? Fake Lames?
Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | March 04, 2020 at 09:54 AM

about your post:

1- in what universe is the media "dumping" on vasiljevik, by noting he "has long been regarded as one of the ACC's best 3-point shooters"??

1a- OGV: "Regarded by who exactly, again?"
. . . hello? do you watch games?! EVERY announcer i've listened to made a point of talking about his 3-pt. prowess; as well as him being money on FT's (almost 90%)
. . . opposing teams have to keep someone on him, which can help spacing for others

2- a slump can happen to shooters, (one of the heat's best shooters, nunn, just got out of a longer slump), and that's why, in a recent post, i mentioned that miami really needs vasiljevik to get back to the 40+% on 3-pointers and the 15-points per game that he used to put up regularly (he's averaging 13.2 points per game, despite the slump)

Strong take, Alpine!

OGV:
. . . herb led me to believe that you're a basketball genius; and i remember seeing (december? january?) a couple posts that i thought were cool
. . . but this post could easily win a "crap of the month" award, and is all too typical of what you bring to this blog
. . . with windy being the only other blogger to post about basketball, we could use something INTERESTING from you!!!!
but you seem more interested in creating a mysterious persona on here, rather than focussing on how you could ADD to canespace

. . . it's a persona that reminds me of a mix of a 50's james dean, a cigarette pack rolled up in the t-shirt sleeve;
together with a newer hoodie-wearing, hitch-in-his-walk, smack talker, who's 13-yrs. old

- jmo, but you ERR, trying to spout off in Eruditic Ridiculing Riddles
it's not workin'

- like all of canespace, al pines for more OGV gangsta esoterica . . . like "sidtard sockpuppeteer trolls" (which means? anyone who can translate?)

- ya know, i thought "fake lames" referred to blake james? or are you trying to spread your wit by using this epithet on "others"?

- since you've used these epithets ad nauseum, OGV, couldn't you spend one of your weekends doing a 48-hour brain-storm to come up with something new? you'd be doing canespace a favor!

It would be nice this 2021 recruiting cycle not to have a full class of decomits.
Already have 5 or 6. Maybe we can keep it under 10 with a couple more wins.
Only way to stop the trend of So. FLO. KIDS WEARING out the highway going North is to have multiple years of success on the field. 2 or 3 years in a row should cut the pipe line to more than half and slow the traffic to schools like Bama, Georgia Clemson and LSU. Florida has also been a thorn in our side.
UNC is on the rise and is taking the state. Already have 5 four star players from the state that doesn't typically have the overall depth of talent.

Seymore is a must keep for this upcoming class. Best O-lineman out of Dade in a long, long time and he's been solidly committed to us forever.

If we win we will have a lot better chance of keeping our recruits at home plus for once steeling a few from them.

The Georgia Bulldogs have offered a scholarship to Laurence Seymore, a 2021 Miami Hurricanes commitment. Kirby Smart and Matt Luke are showing interest in Seymore, who is a four-star offensive guard.

Seymore plays high school football at Miami Central High School. Georgia has already offered his high school teammate, who is a four-star running back, Amari Daniels. He’s been committed to Miami for almost two years now. Laurence Seymore’s original commitment to the Hurricanes came on March 31st, 2018.


That long commitment won’t stop the Dawgs from offering him a scholarship. Seymore was excited to receive an offer from the University of Georgia:

Seymore plays in a difficult division of high school football and will be battle tested when he heads off to college. Miami Central has produced numerous NFL players including Vikings RB Dalvin Cook, Cincinnati OG John Miller, and Atlanta RB Devonta Freeman.

Seymore is 6’1.5″, 290 lbs, so he doesn’t have ideal height. He may continue to grow as he is only a junior in high school.

There are two reasons why UGA has a decent shot at Seymore:

The recent trend of elite Florida talent leaving the state for Georgia, Clemson, and Alabama.
The vast amount of de-commitments Miami has received over the past couple recruiting classes.
We’ll keep you updated on his recruiting progress.
