Antwain Easterling bioVideo highlights

Miami will try to land at least one highly regarded running back prospect in this year's class.


And one they were targeting before coach Larry Coker's dismissal was Miami Northwestern's Antwain Easterling.

A recent newspaper article stated that Easterling has Florida as his clear frontrunner.

Now Easterling says that's not necessarily the case.

"Let's just say Miami and Florida are the top two," he says.

Northwestern coach Roland Smith said he expects Cane coaches to visit the school this week.

Could the Canes wind up landing this recruit once a new coach comes in?

Time will tell.

For now, Easterling says he hasn't spoken with UM coaches since Coker was fired.

Asked if Coker's firing has any effect on his recruitment, Easterling said, "No, not really. He set a good example with how the players worked at UM."

Easterling is being recruited by Randy Shannon and had spoken to him on a weekly basis prior to Coker being let go.

"He talks to me like a father, it was a father-son thing, how he wants me to focus on grades, things like that," Easterling said. "We'd talk 30 minutes to an hour."

He would talk nowhere near that time with other coaches.

His relationship with Shannon could be a key component as recruiting moves forward.

Easterling says what he's looking for in a college is "just the best for my education and just staying focused, where I can stay focused."

Another factor in his recruitment is that UM is a hometown school and that he has several friends on the team: Romeo Davis, Khalil Jones, Chris Barney and Javarris James.

Easterling is former Cane Willis McGahee's cousin.

"Most of the guys don't push me to go to Miami, but Chris Barney, he said he really wants me to come, that I should go to Miami," Easterling said. "He thinks I'd be able to get a lot of playing time right away."

For now, Easterling is concentrating on helping his team to a state title.

Northwestern takes on North Miami Beach this weekend in the playoffs.

"It's going to be tough this week," Easterling said. "We're not taking any team lightly."

Is quarterback commit still solid to UM?

November 27, 2006

San Antonio (TX) Churchill QB Nick Fanuzzi remains a Hurricane commitment despite the recent firing of coach Larry Coker.


CaneSport has now confirmed that every recruit remains committed other than DeMarcus VanDyke, who decommitted the day Coker was fired, and Harland Gunn, who has not returned messages.

Fanuzzi's father, Mike, told CaneSport moments ago that "He's still committed to Miami. He's going to wait and see who the coach is going to be, to see what the situation is."

Fanuzzi is expecting an in-home visit from quarterbacks coach Todd Berry this week.

"I don't know how the meeting will go," Mike Fanuzzi said. "We'll see if he gives any more insight into anything. But he's probably just following up with his recruits.

"I'm going to try and have a lot of questions."

If an a.ssistant coach like Berry isn't retained, would that have any effect on the Fanuzzi commitment?

"All that stuff (with a.ssistants) is all speculation at this point," Mike Fanuzzi said. "There's no reason to go into any of it, not knowing what's gong to happen with it.

"He's committed to the program. As long as the new coaching staff that comes in –- you don't know the offense the coach will run, don't know a lot of things -– it depends on who it is. We'll sit tight and see what happens."

Because Fanuzzi has already taken an official visit to Miami, it's likely he will take an unofficial visit to UM once the new coach is hired.

"He has no other visits scheduled," Mike Fanuzzi said.

RB Graig Cooper committed to coach Larry Coker last year out of Melrose (Tenn.) High School before attending the Milford Academy prep school in New Berlin, N.Y. this season.


And he bore personal witness to Coker's final game as head coach: He took his official visit to UM for the Boston College game last Thursday.

A day later he learned Coker was fired.

"I love Coker, that was one of the reasons I wanted to come there," Cooper said. "He was a winner."

So how does Coker's departure affect Cooper?

"It affects [the commitment] a little bit, but I still love the U," Cooper said. "Right now I'm still coming to Miami. I love them boys at Miami. I feel like a teammate of them. If the new coach shows me love I'll probably still be there.

"But I'm talking things over with my father. We're going to talk it over. We're talking about taking some more visits now. Before Coker was fired I probably wasn't going to take any other visits."

Cooper says he's considering trips to Florida, Oklahoma State and Tennessee.

He plans to be at a college in January, and says he still needs one more point on the ACT to qualify.

Cooper helped his team to a 7-3 record this season. He was the primary ball carrier ahead of former Cane commitment LeSean McCoy -- Cooper finished with 15 touchdowns and 1,247 rushing yards.

Of his official visit to UM, Cooper said, "I liked just hanging out with the team. We were chilling. I felt like I was part of the team. It's like a family. Those boys are like my family. I feel like I've known them forever.

"My host was Javarris James. He's a real cool guy."

Damien Berry bioVideo highlights

Talk about it in The Storm Center
Belle Glade (Fla.) Glades Central High School DB and Cane commitment Damien Berry attended the BC game unofficially.


He spoke to Larry Coker while he was there.

"I talked to him before and after the game," Berry sad. "He was saying how much he loves the recruits and all that. He was showing a lot of emotion."

Berry's reaction to Coker's firing?

"I was shocked," Berry said.

He says he remains committed.

"I want to see what coach they get and then I'm going to see after that," he says.

Berry says, as long as the new coach recruits him hard, "I'll be at Miami."

Berry is setting up visits to LSU, Florida and UCLA as well as Miami.

He has the UM visit set for Jan. 26 with teammates Deonte Thompson and Taurus McKinley.

Of attending the BC game, Berry said, "I had a great time. Graig Cooper was there. I met him at the game. He's a pretty nice person, a cool guy."

Kirby Freeman: I'll be 2007 starter


November 26, 2006

Jim Martz, CaneSport Magazine

Talk about it in Gary Ferman's War Room
The following is an excerpt from CaneSport Magazine. CaneSport Magazine publishes 25 times a year, 10 glossy monthly printed issues and 15 online or Gameday Issues for a subscription price of $54.95. An online only subscription or a printed magazine only subscription is $39.95. Call 1-800-635-2263 or visit CaneSportmagazine.com

Kirby Freeman now has three games as the Miami Hurricanes' starting quarterback on his resume. And he'll be able to add one more if the team plays in a bowl game.


Whether he has the credentials to unseat Kyle Wright likely won't be determined until spring practice. And the decision undoubtedly will be made by the new head coach and his staff.

But Freeman, a sophomore, believes he has played well enough to earn the job from Wright, a junior who started all of last year and the first nine games this season before being sidelined by a broken bone in his right thumb.

"As of right now, I'm the starter," Freeman said after Thursday night's 17-14 victory over Boston College. "This team responded well to me, and I've tried to do my best to be a good leader in all the right ways."

The last two minutes of the first half were a microcosm of the way this season has gone for Freeman. On first and 15 from his 18-yard line, he was intercepted by cornerback DeJuan Tribble, who returned it 22 yards for a touchdown and 14-3 Boston College lead. Undaunted, he led the Canes 73 yards in four plays for a touchdown, hitting wide receiver Ryan Moore for 49 yards, tailback Javarris James for 17 and wide receiver lance Leggett for the final seven and the score.

For the game, he completed 13 of 26 passes for a career-best 181 yards. He was intercepted three times and sacked once.

"He showed me two things," said coach Larry Coker. "He needs more experience because he hasn't played much at this level. He is a tremendous player who the other players really gravitate to. The players never give up on him."

In his three starts and sparse duty in four other games, Freeman has completed 48 of 89 passes for 600 yards and five touchdowns, and he has been picked off seven times. More apt to run than Wright does, Freeman has carried 31 times for 139 yards, including a net of 32 yards in 10 trips against Boston College.

"He did a good job," tight end Greg Olsen said of Freeman's play against the Eagles. "He's a leader, he moved the ball around and tried to make plays. He made some great throws. He had that one to Ryan before the half that gave us a chance to score that touchdown. Kirby's a competitor."

Regarding that drive, Freeman said, "That was huge. It gave us confidence and everybody was behind me, my teammates and the coaches."

Boston College coach Tom O'Brien said that drive didn't bother him as much as the one Freeman led in the third quarter, plus Miami's defense.

"We weren't deflated at all," O'Brien said of Miami's quick strike before halftime. "We were ahead 14-10. I think the most important thing was the third quarter. Coming out we went three and out. We were able to move the ball a little bit, but they scored first and they held that up with their defense."

On the Canes' second possession of the third quarter, Freeman sparked a 63-yard, seven-play drive for the winning touchdown. On third-and-nine from his 28, he darted 13 yards up the middle for a first down. On the next play he hit Moore for 28 yards, followed by a 30-yard pass to Olsen to the Boston College one-yard line. Two plays later tailback Javarris James ran for the winning touchdown.

Freeman was intercepted a third time early in the fourth quarter when he tried to connect deep with James at the Eagles' three-yard line.

"Today wasn't the greatest outing by me," said Freeman.

But he was pleased with his overall effort in his first appearance as a starter in the Orange Bowl. And it was his first victory as a starter.

"I was nervous tonight playing my first career game as a a starter at the Orange Bowl," he said. "I wanted to do well for the fans and for the City of Miami. It felt really good to get the win. I will remember this forever."

Freeman, who was the starter in the 14-13 loss at Maryland and the 17-7 loss at Virginia, believes he should be "the man" heading into next season.

"Absolutely," he said. I'm going to do the things it takes to continue to start."

Keller (TX) Fossil Ridge DL and Hurricane commitment Chris Perry is expecting an in-home visit with coach Todd Berry this week.


"He said he wanted to do an in-home visit with me," Perry said.

Perry says Berry didn't mention the firing of coach Larry Coker when they talked.

But Perry says Coker's dismissal doesn't affect his commitment status.

"Everbody had been talking about it," Perry said. "I knew it would happen. I wasn't really surprised."

Perry plans to take official visits to Nebraska, Arkansas, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Miami.

His UM visit date isn't set yet.

Perry says he didn't have regular contact with Coker, and that is a reason he doesn't see it as a big deal for the recruiting class.

"I talked to coach Coker like once out of every three times I talk to coach Berry," Perry said.

Of what could affect his commitment status, Perry said, "I've always known Miami to be under coach Coker, so it depends who they bring in. I want somebody that knows what they're doing and has some championships under their belt because I want someone that's going to be there the whole time I'm there."

The chances Perry sticks to his commitment to the very end?

"I don't even know," he said.

Talk about it in Football Recruiting Board
Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Aquinas wide receiver Leonard Hankerson had planned to make an official visit to Ohio State along with teammate Major Wright when the Buckeyes play Michigan Nov. 18.


Wright is still visiting OSU Nov. 18 when the Bucks play Michigan.
"I talked to Ohio State a couple days ago," Hankerson said. "I talked to coach (Darrell) Hazell. We talked about my visit.

"I'm not going up there for the Michigan game. They want me to come in January."

Hankerson said he definitely still wants to visit the Buckeyes.

"I don't have any visits set up right now," he said. "I want to visit Miami, Florida, Georgia and Ohio State.

"Miami and Ohio State are still my favorites."

On the other hand, Wright is still scheduled to visit Ohio State when the Bucks play Michigan.

"He's still going that weekend," Hankerson said. "He's going up there on Saturday (Nov. 18) morning."

The 6-foot-2 and 185-pound Hankerson has 20 receptions for 433 yards and eight touchdowns as Aquinas has won eight of nine games. Hankerson and his teammates have their first playoff game on Friday against Pompano Beach Ely.

Talk about it in Football Recruiting Board
As of tonight, Tampa (Fla.) Jefferson four-star quarterback Stephen Garcia is the only signal caller in the Rivals250 to have not committed to a school. It appears things are about to change.


Stephen Garcia has the Gamecocks at the top of his list.
"I'm leaning towards having a press conference at my school next Wednesday," the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Garcia said. "I'll know for sure in the next day or two."

Garcia spent most of his Tuesday evening with South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier.

"He and coach (David) Reaves were at my house for about four hours tonight," Garcia said. "It was just crazy spending that much time with him in my own house. I mean, he's the best coach in America when it comes to offense and quarterbacks. I loved it."

During the visit, Spurrier addressed the persistent rumors that he could be headed to Alabama to replace the recently fired Mike Shula.

"He said there's no chance of it happening. He's staying at South Carolina for sure, so that was good to hear."

Garcia is still contemplating when he'll take his visits and whether he'll graduate in December and enroll in college in January.

"As far as the visits go, I'm definitely visiting South Carolina and maybe Oklahoma. Ole Miss is still in there a little bit, too, but I don't know if I'm going to get there for a visit or not. It's really down to those three teams."

As has been the case throughout the process, one team remains at the top of his list.

"It's South Carolina. They're still No. 1 on my list."

Greg Schiano has a big game to coach this week against West Virginia, so he is sitting on the sidelines of the coaching derby that has heated up with firings at Arizona State, North Carolina State and Alabama in the last 24 hours.

But Sunday morning, Schiano might find quite a crowd at his door.

Sources have told CaneSport.com that in addition to Miami trying to lure the Rutgers Coach that Alabama has also joined in the chase for Schiano.

That could complicate things greatly for the Hurricanes, who already would have to open the bank vault for Schiano to the tune of $2 million per year for five years before they even get into other demands the coach might have with relation to facilities, a.ssistant coaches salaries and other program elements.

That might explain the hiring of consultant Chuck Neinas to head up a national search. Schiano to Miami is shaping up as anything but the slam dunk that so many Miami people want it to be.

Meanwhile, the 40-year-old Schiano, who turned Rutgers from one of the lowliest programs in the country to a Big East contender this year, continues to say he will stay at Rutgers, even though it is hard to fathom him turning down two of the elite programs in college football.

"My philosophy is I focus on the things I have control over and can make a difference in," Schiano said. "The whole Miami thing, I've said it for six weeks, I'm very happy here, I have no plans to go anywhere else. I'm not going to talk about other jobs.

"This is a special place to me. This is where I want to be. We're going to leave it at that. I want to take the focus off of me and that job. This is my job. Rutgers is my job. At this place, the sky's the limit and I plan on being here to see it.

UM lands big receiving recruit
BY MANNY NAVARRO


The University of Miami landed a big commitment late Tuesday from 6-6, 215-pound receiver Daniel Adderley from Southside Christian Schools in Simpsonville, S.C. He committed to UM receivers coach Marquis Mosely during an in-home visit, according to Adderley's high school coach, Dexter Davis.

''He grew up in Nassau, and I think the ability to be a little close to home was exciting to him,'' Davis said. ``We sent a tape to coach Mosely two weeks ago and it took about a week and a half to reach this point.''

Davis said Adderley grew up rooting for the Hurricanes as a child while living in Nassau and is good friends with another big Bahamian, Hurricane 6-8 freshman offensive lineman Ian Symonnette. Adderley said Davis was being heavily recruited by Tennessee before suffering a season-ending collarbone injury his senior year.

Adderley had 33 catches for 786 yards and seven TDs as a junior. This year, he had 27 catches for 459 yards and five TDs in three games before the injury.

Unranked on Rivals.com and Scout.hom, Adderley is the third receiver commitment Miami has landed this fall -- a position Miami sorely needs to improve. Adderley joins Taurus McKinley, a 5-9, 163-pounder from Belle Glades Central and Kayne Faquaharson, a 6-2, 185-pound JUCO recruit from El Camino, Calif.

''Having coached collegiately for five years and seeing guys in the pros, he ranks above the majority of the kids that have come out at that position,'' said Davis, who starred at Clemson and played in the NFL before coaching as an a.ssistant at Morgan State for five seasons.

``I kind of compare him to [USC's] Dwayne Jarrett. What I like about Daniel is he has size, he can catch it inside, he can make the big play. He's a big kid, you're talking 6-6, that can move. He can run the slant. He can run the deep.''

They have NO videos on this kid... I guess the only tape floating around is the one that there coach to Miami. The coaches saw it and offered him the Scholarship right away..

Southside Christian Schools (Simpsonville, SC) WR Daniel Adderley isn't your typical Miami Hurricane recruit.


For one, he didn't play any organized football until his sophomore year. And that year he spent most of the season as a backup on the Mesquite (Tex.) Poteet High School team. He had just 15 catches for 280 yards.

"I was just learning the game," he says.

Add that to the fact that his only full year of high school ball was last season at a brand new program, and that he only played three games this season, and it's easy to see why no major programs offered him.

Adderley spent last summer in the Bahamas, so he didn't attend any Junior Days or summer camps.

Few knew about him or saw him play live.

In the end, it was a highlight tape that earned Adderley a Hurricane offer that he accepted last night.

Adderley's coach, Dexter Davis, sent the tape into UM at Adderley's request –- Adderley grew up in the Bahamas and wanted to play close to home.

The Canes began recruiting Adderley just two weeks ago.

"The day [receivers coach Marques Mosely] saw it he called, said, `That's what we're looking for down here,'" Adderley said. "That was my dream school, so that's why I sent [the highlight tape] there."

And the Canes gave him an offer during an in-home visit by Mosely Nov. 28.

How does a program with no head coach in place give out an offer?

"The athletic director [Paul Dee] authorized it," said Davis, who was in attendance at the in-home meeting with Mosely. "They won't do many scholarships now, but they wanted to get in the game because everyone else is doing it. [They want to wrap up] the key people they're going after that they can get.

"The offer was there for [Adderley] during the conversation last night, and he accepted. We talked about it a little bit: Myself, him and his dad met. We sat there and talked about the pros and cons. Obviously, schools are coming after him and things are picking up for him. But he wanted to go to Miami because he grew up in the Bahamas. He was sold on Miami."

Adderley is good friends with current Cane Ian Symonette, who is also from the Bahamas.

"Me and Ian went to the same high school [in the Bahamas]," Adderley said.

Just how good is this 6-foot-6 receiver?

Last season he had 33 catches for 786 yards and seven touchdowns. This year he had 27 catches for 459 yards and five scores. And that came in just over three games –- a broken collarbone ended his season early.

In one game -- a 28-22 four-overtime loss to Fox Creek -- he had 10 catches for 127 yards and two scores.

"He is an exceptional athlete," said Davis, Morgan State's former Defensive Coordinator who played college ball at Clemson and in the NFL with the Cardinals and Rams. "To me, he was the best receiver in our state. Tennessee was recruiting him heavily last year following his junior season. He broke his collarbone and it tailed off. He was on pace to do some fantastic things this year. You're 6-foot-6 running a low 4.5, can catch the ball. He's tough. He's a special kid and very humble."

Adderley arrived on the scene at Southside Christian in much the same way he made his arrival on the UM recruiting scene: As a complete shock.

"I got an e-mail from the young man that said `I'm 6-6, all I want to do is play football for you,'" Davis said. "I'm thinking `Yeah, right.' I told the kid if he's serious he has to go through the admissions process and take care of that. He did that and then all of a sudden one night I'm walking out of the office and one of my players was standing there -- he's 6-2, and this kid's there and he is 6-6. He said `Hey coach, nice to meet you. I told you I'd be here.' I said `I tell you what, tomorrow morning you meet me on the practice field.' I ran a slant and 9 route with him and I realized God had sent me a gift.

"I go against him one-on-one -- I was a cornerback. He holds his own, is an aggressive kid and has an attitude."

Why did Adderley choose the South Carolina program?

"I heard they were starting a program, and I noticed coach Davis had played in the NFL," he said. "I have an aunt who lives here and a cousin who goes to Southside Christian. So I came."

Davis compares Adderley to Dwayne Jarrett at USC.

"I've seen a kid that has his ability at a more advanced state, and that's the kid from Southern Cal," Davis said. "He uses his body well, and Daniel's hands are bigger than my head. He has huge hands. He's just an exception. He has some blessings that are hard to come by."

Davis said Mosely helped seal the deal when it came to Adderley's commitment.

"He's a great guy with great character," Davis said. "He didn't promise a starting position but talked about how hard he would have to work and what UM meant and how prestigious it is just to get a degree from there. It's a small school, not a big school, and he told Daniel about the great opportunities just to get your degree. His genuineness is what impressed."

Adderley says he decided to commit after Mosely said he expects to still be at UM when the new coach is hired.

"He just told me that he plans on being there, and that was a sign to me," Adderley said. "He seemed honest and straightforward, and if he's there then that's something I want to do.

"I kind of figured I'd get an offer from Miami -- I figured he wasn't coming here to tell me he wasn't interested."

Asked if it's a done deal for the Canes, Adderley said, "I've always loved Miami. I grew up watching them in the Bahamas. It's always been my dream school. So I'm pretty much looking forward to coming to Miami. I highly doubt anything will change."

He says he plans to visit UM in January.

Adderley is playing basketball for the first time this year, and don't be surprised if he winds up starring in that as well. At 6-6 he has a 36-inch vertical jump.

He is working on his strength numbers – he benches 265 pounds and squats 330.

Adderley's recruitment might be picked up more now by Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia Tech and Tennessee. Those programs have been in touch with him already but have not offered scholarships.

But Adderley says any offers now will be too late.

"I'm committed to Miami," he said. "I definitely see myself playing right away. I know I have the ability. I'm going to get the strength in the next year. Mentally, physically I think I'll be ready to help the team."

If Miami's new coach, whoever that is, decides the Canes are in need of instant quarterback help, he can rest a.ssured he has an interested prospect at Highland (KS) Community College quarterback Billy Bob Orsagh.

Orsagh hit on 121 of 209 passes for 2,100 yards with 14 touchdowns and nine interceptions this season. He added 395 rushing yards and four scores.

Orsagh was voted the No. 2 player in the Kansas Jayhawk Conference by the league's coaches and was Offensive MVP.

Some past players in the conference: NFL standouts Rudi Johnson and Corey Dillon.

"Let me put it this way: He's a poor man's version of a Michael Vick," Highland coach Keith Majors said of Orsagh.

Orsagh had set up an official visit to UM for Dec. 8, although that is now in doubt with the coaching shakeup.

"I'd sure be interested [if UM offers a scholarship]," Orsagh said.

Orsagh wasn't recruited out of Eastland (Tex.) High School.

"I came from a real small high school, so I didn't get a lot of looks, no offers," he said. "I talked to Houston until signing day and everything fell through so I came to JUCO."

He played as a freshman at Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss., before going to Highland.

Dee: New Coach Should Be In Place Soon

Cane fans eager to find out the name of Miami's new coach won't have long to wait.

Athletic Director Paul Dee said today that he expects to have the coaching search wrapped up in the next couple of weeks.

"We hope that as time goes on in the next week or so that we'll be able to come to a conclusion -– probably in a week, maybe two weeks from now," Dee said.

Dee said no interviews have been conducted yet, but that he has a list of coaches he's interested in hiring.

UM hired Chuck Neinas as a consultant in the search for a new coach, and Dee said the two speak "two to three times a day."

Dee added, "We've put together a list of people we're interested in with a lot of names on it, are reviewing them. Mr. Neinas has a lot of contacts in the business, and a lot of people have contact him. Various agents have contacted me and him. We've put together a list, are in the process of culling through that list and determining the direction we want to go based on the availability and interest that we're finding."

Dee said there are "far more people" from the college ranks than the pro ranks on his list of potential coaches.

Asked if there are any a.ssistant coaches on the current staff that he will interview, Dee said, "We have strong interest in Randy Shannon."

He said he has not asked other athletic directors for formal permission to talk to their coaches ... yet.

"There's no reason to make 10 phone calls when you want to talk to three people," Dee said. "We're going to make sure we have the right ones, then will ask permission and go from there."

Dee said there might be more than three finalists for the job.

"We'll do what we need to do given the circumstances," he said. "If you have two to three people really interested, then you can make a choice. If you sense their degree of interest is now what you want, you might have more."

* Dee also addressed the facilities issue today.

The school is hoping to upgrade its facilities.

"The facilities we have are adequate and above average, but there's always room to improve," Dee said. "We've spent a lot of money in the last 10 years, over $100 million on facilities. We feel our facilities are constantly in need of upgrading. The facilities we need to have here: Certainly a better academic facility, a better training facility for treatment of our players, there is some need for an indoor practice facility, the track we need to renovate and resurface, the Orange Bowl stadium we're working on -– I just finished a two-and-a-half hour meeting with the senior administration at the University on the Orange Bowl and the progress that's being made there."
