Pompano Beach Ely High School DB Patrick Johnson has said in the past that he tells some reporters what he thinks they want to hear.

And it appears that's happened again.

A Georgia website reported yesterday that, after an official visit to the school, Johnson said, "I am opening things back up now. I am open to other schools and not committed to Miami. I am now looking at Georgia, LSU, USC and Florida too."

Not so fast, says Patrick's father.

"He didn't decommit," Patrick Sr. said. "The commitment is still there. Everything's still the same. You know how that goes – you hear different stuff from different people.

"Pat knows what he's doing."

Dad adds that "The commitment should still be there when it comes time to lock it down. He's still there. He just wants to keep his options open, see other schools, what they have to offer. The University of Miami is his first goal."

Patrick Sr., his wife and Pat took the visit to Georgia together.


"It was not what we thought it would be like," Patrick Sr. said. "The atmosphere wasn't powerful like we thought it would be. It was nice, though. The fans were nice."

Patrick Sr. says No. 2 on Pat's list behind Miami is LSU.

Hurtt has message for recruits

On a night when the Hurricanes were embarrassed, UM recruiting coordinator Clint Hurtt had a message for the many high school recruits in UM's losing lockerroom. And basically, it was this: Get your gear and get ready because you're going to play next season.

"I'd tell them hurry up and get in their mind right now that when they get here next spring or in the fall, hurry up and get your equipment fitted because they’re going to be on the field right away," Hurtt told me in a private moment.

"There’s a culture about this team we got to change. And we’re going to start with the guys with who we recruit. Not because we feel that they’re great players, but because of their mentality and the kind of players we’re recruiting. That’s the biggest thing for us and I would tell them, just make sure they hurry up and get to campus as soon as possible because they got to get fitted and ready to go. Because all of them are going to play.

I asked Hurtt why he believed these potential recruits could really changed the losing culture at UM.

"Everything is about evaluation in recruiting and the guys we’re evalutating we feel are bosses. Guys we feel are hogs, guys who are competitive. Guys, that come from winning programs and they understand what it takes to win. And that’s the reason they’re being recruited, not just because they’re great players because we believe they have a desire to win. Point blank."

It will be interesting to see what happens. UM's 48-0 loss was embarrassing. But in the brief conversations I had with recruits -- linebacker Jordan Futch and cornerback Brandon Harris (a target) -- they didn't seem to bothered. In fact, both seemed happy, like they were licking their chops and couldn't wait to get here next year. UM has to hope that feeling lasts long. The rest of the season is not going to get any easier.

Keeping recruits a concern amid UM's slide
Some wavering, but UM expects stellar '08 class

CORAL GABLES - At each home game, potential Miami Hurricanes recruits sit together in the southwest corner of the end zone at the Orange Bowl.

They are so visible fans often ask them to pose for photographs, making the stars of tomorrow feel like they are being chased by paparazzi. The scene occurs in Section X, but these days the question is whether they will become ex-commitments.

With the Hurricanes coming off an embarrassing defeat to Virginia and facing a losing season, the whispers have begun of one of the nation's top recruiting class possibly breaking apart. The recruits say no, but anything is possible in the uncertain world of college football recruiting.

"A lot of people try to go out there and cherry pick," said Jeremy Crabtree, national recruiting analyst for Rivals.com. "In the southeastern part of the country, you've got so many schools that are concentrated. They're already battling for top talent. When you throw in that a team is struggling, they're going to continue recruiting. They're not calling off the dogs."

The Hurricanes have 21 commitments for the 2008 season. It has been ranked anywhere from first to sixth among recruiting classes by scouting services, including No. 1 by ESPN.com. Coach Randy Shannon and staff have already hinted they expect immediate contributions next season, but keeping the recruits and landing additional ones will be tough.

A quick surf of the Internet is all that's needed to know the Hurricanes are in for a f!ght as National Signing Day approaches. The gem of the class is rumored daily to have jumped ship, and a potential commitment ripped into the UM program despite his father being a member of the Hurricanes' 1987 team.

"It's almost like [Shannon] has to baby-sit things," Crabtree said.

Ely cornerback Patrick Johnson is regarded as the state's top prospect. He has been linked to Southern California, LSU and recently Georgia. When asked what happens if UM is blown out in its final two games, Johnson takes a deep breath. After a pause to think, he says, "I'm still unchanged."

"I'm 90 percent sure I'm going to Miami," Johnson said. "I really wasn't concerned with [Miami] getting whupped. I was just thinking that I can go in there and make a name for myself."

Quarterback Taylor Cook of Altair High in Texas felt the same. He watched the 48-0 Virginia debacle with his grandparents.

"It was disappointing to see them lose, but it just gives me more incentive to come," Cook said. "We want to help change things."

For the most part, the members of the recruiting class agreed. But a blowout loss in the Hurricanes' Orange Bowl finale may have been a little too much for potential commit Matt Patchan. He left the stadium more disappointed than an angry fan.

Patchan is one of the nation's top offensive lineman recruits at Armwood High in the Tampa area. His father, Matt Sr., is a former Hurricane, so it was understandable why Patchan was so critical in an interview with Rivals.com after the game. He criticized the current players' attitude and work ethic and said "half those guys in Miami uniforms shouldn't be there."

After reading the comments, UM commitment Jordan Futch said Patchan was only speaking the truth.

"They're going to feel disrespected," said Futch, a linebacker who plans to enroll in January after graduating from Chaminade-Madonna. "They probably needed to hear it. I've talked to some of the [current] players and they feel that's the truth, too. You can't get mad at somebody for telling the truth."

Futch said he believes only two commitments are wavering, possibly linebackers Lerentee McCray of Dunnellon and Homestead's Marcus Robinson. If they go elsewhere, Crabtree says it would be a huge blow because linebackers are the strength of the class.

The positive is the six players from top-ranked Miami Northwestern are all but guarantees to become Hurricanes. The group that includes defensive tackle Marcus Forston and receiver Aldarius Johnson are the reason the class is so highly regarded.

The players have even taken the nickname "Shannon's Boys" to show support for their future coach.

"We're the ones that everybody is looking forward to be the new generation out there," Futch said. "We've come out saying we're going to be a family and have no mercy. This recruiting class, we're Shannon's Boys."

Hallandale (Fla) High School WR Frankie Hammond Jr. remains a Florida commitment.

But he says the Hurricanes remain high in his recruiting picture.

"I still am going to visit Miami," he said. "I'll also visit Florida and possibly BC as well."

He's already taken an unofficial visit – he was an invited recruit for the NC State game at the Orange Bowl.

"I haven't scheduled the official yet," he said. "Our football team is in the playoffs, we're still playing football. When the season comes to an end I'll make that arrangement."

Hammond remains in regular contact with UM receivers coach Marques Mosely.

"He knows (I'm committed to Florida), but it's a soft verbal so my options are still open," Hammond said. "I tell him my current status, how football is going."

Asked if Florida has a big advantage, Hammond said, "I mean, they have a slight advantage. And the only reason I say that is because they go four wide so the opportunity of receivers getting into the ball game is more likely than at Miami. And academically it's not a bad program at all."

Of how UM's struggles affect him, Hammond said, "It just opened my eyes to see that Miami probably needs playmakers, and I could probably be that person.

"It helps Miami with me because everything seems to be not clicking right. I don't know if they're missing something ... maybe they just need help. It's a developing program. I don't know if next year they'll be national title contenders, but within years to come they'll be back."


What will Hammond look at most closely in the end?

"Academics, athletics, and the need for receivers," he said. "Once I take my visits I'll have a better understanding of what each college is really offering me."

Asked if he's getting flack from some locals about committing to UF, Hammond said, "A lot of people are coming to me and saying Miami will be better than Florida."

:Dan intresting quote regarding arthur brown



That research includes talking with other high profile recruits, such as the country's No. 1 rated cornerback, Patrick Johnson and the country's No. 1 defensive tackle, Marcus Forston.

"Arthur is not the most talkative person, and neither is Patrick," laughed Butler. "But I've spoken to Patrick's dad, as well as Will Hill's dad. I know Arthur speaks with Patrick, Marcus Forston and Matt Patchan – who's a real character.

"Matt is very knowledgeable and knows what's going on. Arthur also hit it off with Jerrell Harris from Alabama. Those are the kids that have been proactive about recruiting and have talked with Arthur. It's just good to communicate and see what other recruits are thinking.

"I mean, to have the nation's No. 1 defensive back, linebacker and defensive tackle on the same team would make one heck of a defense. But they don't talk because they want to attend the same school – it's more about sharing thoughts and comparing different schools."


if barrow pulls this off somehow he has to be the recruiter of the year

he visits here later this month

hes bringing his lil bro with him too for the visit:D

Meyer has the last in-home with Brown because he didn't schedule an official with UF. Hopefully he can show him how much all these other programs ain't sh*t and UF about to reel off a few more titles in the coming years. Who would want to go to Miami to play for a coach that has obviously quit and who the players don't want to play for? Shannon is fu*king inept on the sidelines, I don't care if it is his first year these losses are fu*king inexcusable the way the lose.

Recruits critical of UM
Several football players being recruited heavily by UM sharply criticized Canes players this week. And the Canes don't want to hear it.

On Tuesday, UM players reacted angrily to comments by Seffner Armwood High offensive tackle Matt Patchan, whose father played for UM. But UM oral commitment Marcus Forston of Miami Northwestern and UM target Brandon Harris of Miami Booker T. Washington said in phone interviews that Patchan's comments were dead-on.

Patchan, who attended UM's 48-0 loss to Virginia, told canesport.com that 'there's too many guys that it doesn't bother them that they lost the game. There's too many guys now at the U that [say], `It's OK we lost. Well, what am I going to do tonight?' Like it doesn't mean anything. They need to get rid of those types of guys.''

UM players reacted angrily. ''That insults me a lot,'' tight end Dedrick Epps said. ``It's a false statement. Why would we come to the University of Miami to lose? I didn't hear anybody say what we're going to do tonight. We were hurt.''

Said offensive tackle Jason Fox: ``When someone that's not around your program every day makes judgments about you, it doesn't sit well . . . You take offense. It's unfair.''

Said linebacker Colin McCarthy: ''He doesn't know how we feel. We were all hurt in the locker room. Some may deal with it differently.'' And safety Randy Phillips cracked, ``Evidently, he knows something I don't know from being around here one or two days.''

Coach Randy Shannon, who obviously wants Patchan, said, ``Everyone is entitled to their opinion.''

Forston, a top-rated defensive tackle who attended Saturday's Canes game, said he remains a strong UM commitment, but agrees with Patchan. ''Some guys are not giving full effort,'' Forston said. ``It surprised me. A couple [UM] guys were smiling. I didn't see too much cheering teammates on the sideline. I'm not used to that type of environment.''

Harris, a highly regarded cornerback, was at the OB on Saturday and said Patchan's comments ``are true. Some guys care. Some guys don't. You can sense it. Some are just coasting.''

Harris -- considering UM, Florida and Louisiana State, among others -- said Saturday's UM drubbing ''if anything, would have a positive impact'' on him.

``It lets you know they need players. It's a bad situation.''

UM's Phillips conceded, ``Some guys may not care. I haven't seen it, but evidently it's showing up on the field.''

Patchan, who also told canesport.com that ''half those guys in Miami uniforms shouldn't be there -- they physically don't cut it,'' still is ''absolutely'' considering UM (along with UF and LSU), his father, Matt Sr., said by phone. ``His comments were borne of frustration and his lifelong connection to the team. He's a very passionate kid.''

• UM freshman defensive back Doug Wiggins (torn hamstring) remains away from the team and won't decide whether to transfer until he meets with Shannon after the season, said Jeff Bertani, his coach at North Miami Beach. Wiggins -- who had a physical confrontation with injured safety Anthony Redd*ck earlier this season -- wants more playing time, but Bertani said there's a bigger source of ''friction'' he wouldn't identify.
