Quarterback Kyle Wright wasn't on Greentree Practice Field for today's workout because he was meeting with a hand specialist.

Wright has a broken bone near the base of the thumb on his throwing hand, and coach Larry Coker said "there's definitely a possibility" he will need season-ending surgery.

It's a virtual certainty that Kirby Freeman will start again on Saturday against Virginia.

Tavares Gooden didn't practice today because, according to Coker, "He's having a problem with balance (following a concussion type injury). He's not cleared."

Coker also said A.J. Trump may need surgery for a torn ACL

"He was playing awfully well," Coker said.

Coker added that Rashaun Jones is suspended for two games "for a violation of team policy."

* Normally Monday is an off-day, but Miami won't practice tomorrow because Bryan Pata's funeral is scheduled for 1 p.m.

UM will also hold an on-campus memorial on Wednesday.

Kareem Brown was one of Pata's best friends.

Brown spoke about his friend after this afternoon's practice.

"He was a funny guy," Brown said. "He always put a smile on everyone's face. We called him `The beat master' because he had all the (music) beats in the meeting room and stuff like that. He always made everyone laugh."

How tough was this past week for Brown?

"It was really tough - I've never lost anyone in my life," Brown said. "It was real tough because I didn't know how to deal with it. Fortunately I have the rest of my teammates and the coaches to help me deal with it. They helped me along with it pretty good."

Brown said it was difficult for him to play on Saturday.

"We just felt like he was still with us - we just had that motivation, `He's here with us all the way to the end,'" Brown said. "We just used that."

Brown's locker is adjacent to Pata's in the on-campus locker room.

Pata's locker has been preserved the way it was when he left UM for the last time.

"I think about him," Brown said. "Our lockers are together, so you can't help but think about it."

Pata said he wants to honor Pata by helping this team to a bowl game.

"We want to do it in honor of him," Brown said. "Not only for the school, community, but in honor of him. It was all of our senior year, and we just want to end the season on a good note like he would want to."

Markus Zusevics bioVideo highlights

Mt Prospect (IL) Prospect High School OT Markus Zusevics is waiting on a UM scholarship offer.


But that hasn't stopped him from setting up an official visit to Miami for the weekend of Dec. 15.

"I've talked with coach (Mario) Cristobal -- they started recruiting me a couple of weeks ago," Zusevics said. "They just gave me a call, and I was real excited about it. It went from there.

"They haven't offered me yet. I think coach Cristobal really wants me, but I haven't even seen him face to face yet. Maybe I can get a scholarship once I get down there (on the visit)."

Zusevics lists 12 offers so far, including Nebraska, Purdue (where he's already taken an official visit) and Michigan State.

He says he has no frontrunners right now.

What does he want in a college?

"I just want a pretty big-time program with nice facilities," he said. "That's what I like about Miami. And also a good coaching staff."

Of what he knows about Miami's program, he said, "I just know it's a big-time program with guys that just play like complete animals."

Zusevics says the Bryan Pata tragedy makes him think twice "a little bit" about attending Miami, adding, "I think if I went to Miami it wouldn't be a problem.

"I think they're just having a year with a little bit of trouble."

Zusevics' team is in the second round of the playoffs after winning last weekend, 20-0.

"I'm waiting till after the season to make all the rest of my visits," he said. "I'm just focusing on the playoffs, trying to make it to the state championship

Hollywood Hills (Fla.) High School DL Jabaal Sheard isn't quite sure how much UM is interested in him.


He doesn't have an offer and isn't getting regular calls from Cane coaches.

But he is getting plenty of UM mail.

"Miami's sending me letters in the mail asking me to come to the game, asking how the season's going and things like that," Sheard said. "I went to the game against Virginia Tech and talked to coaches there.

"I talked to coach (John) Palermo. He was just asking how the season's going and that hopefully he can get me in for a visit."

Sheard says it's a certainty that he'll visit UM. He says he's planning on other visits to Auburn, Pittsburgh and Rutgers.

Those three schools have already offered.

He says he's currently up to 10 scholarship offers.

But the one he wants is from Miami.

"I'm a Hurricane fan, have been rooting for them since I learned about football," Sheard said. "If Miami offers they'd be at the top of my list."

Sheard also spoke about the Bryan Pata tragedy and how it might affect recruits.

"They probably understand that it happens places," Sheard said. "When I first heard I thought that things like that just happen sometimes."

* Sheard's season is over - his team lost to Coconut Creek last weekend in the first round of the playoffs, 15-9. He had two tackles for losses and a pass deflection in the game.

Antwain Easterling bioVideo highlights

Talk about it in The Storm Center

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."

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."
