ayyyyyyy


just figured i'd drop a link in here to a thread i started on WeAreSC.com

the thread is titled:
Thoughts On University Of Miami (FL)


the response pretty much echoes my sentiments for the most part
thers a real cool LSU fan on our site too that dropped some gems

here's a few posts

I don't hate The U

They suck right now but they'll be back. And there is no school in America that produces better NFL talent, not right now. You could probably field an NFL team of pro bowlers on both sides of the ball from former Canes.

Their run in the early 2000's was very similar to USC's 2003-2005, almost identical really.

This might not be popular to say, but ever since Miami beat Notre Dame in 1989 they have been one of my favorite teams outside of SC.

I HATED Notre Dame for beating us in such hearbreaking fashion in 88 and 89 and before they met Miami i thought they were unbeatable.

On that same note, ive always disliked the Texas longhorns and their bandwagon fans and nothing was funnier than watching the Canes destroy Texas in the 1991 Cotton Bowl 46-3.

If we ever meet Texas again, I want to do the same thing

I have a lot of respect for them, probably more than any other program recently. I like seeing them do well.

I really can't see them being bad for long with the Dade County prep programs being so strong right now, and the U having a complete lock on them.

THey are going through the same cycle we all go through. They are down right now, but it will only be a matter of time until they are back slugging it out for BCS bowls an and NC. Just don't know if Shannon is the coach, or the next guy will get the job done. But recruting is not the problem at all, as the location sells itself.
Seems they and FS, haven't had a dominant qb since what ,Steve Walsh? Until they get a great QB, they have nowhere to go. Same for FS. Lucky us, we have three now, and four pretty soon, anyone of which could start right now at the "U".
Think there was some bad karma sent down there when Kyle Wright double crossed PEte and Norm, and went to the U after being trained extensively by USC. I think so. He flopped, and so did the great "U".

My favorite U player of all time.... Ted Hendricks

UM a.ssistants on recruiting tour

I still haven't gotten around to that interview with Derrick Crudup because the last 48 hours for me have been a whirlwind around Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. I've watched portions of five high school spring football games and checked out some of the top recruits in South Florida on 12 different teams to supplement my Spring Tour Diaries.

The good news for Canes fans is that I haven't been alone. Nestled among the 20 scouts at Hallandale Wednesday night's spring game at Hallandale High that featured faces like FSU's Chuck Amato were three representatives wearing green and orange -- defensive backs coach Wesley McGriff, offensive coordinator Patrick Nix and the newest Canes' hire Tim "Ice" Harris. I'm sure UM's trio were there to watch highly touted Hallandale cornerback Ricardo Dixon, who made four pass breakups, a few other impressive plays and was dying for a Canes offer when I spoke to him last week. I'm pretty sure Dixon will be getting one soon if he hasn't already.

I left Hallandale right before halftime and stopped for gas before heading off to South Broward High. Apparently that gave Nix and McGriff too large of a head start. They were already standing on the sidelines checking out big Bulldogs offensive tackle Steven Jacques (6-5, 280). I spoke to South Broward coach Allen Held this afternoon who told me Miami coaches told him they were extremely impressed with Jacques and Held expects the Canes to be offering him soon. Jacques, a state qualifier in wrestling, is probably the best lineman I've seen during my tour of 24 teams in the last two-plus weeks. Held said Jacques benches 405 pounds and squats over 600 and has offers from 12 to 15 schools, most from the SEC. He said Jacques had been waiting on UM to stop by and likes them.

Wednesday night, though, wasn't the only night I saw Canes coaches on the prowl. I spotted more a.ssistants at Tropical Park for Monsingor Pace's showdown with highly-touted running back Jamaal Berry and Palmetto High. Berry was impressive and every bit as good as the combine reports made him out to be. He flashed speed, strength and moves. But I still kind of like k!llian's Lamar Miller a little better. Miller, Miami-Dade's No. 1 recruit, will be on display Friday night at Tropical at 8 p.m. against American High and UM soft commitment and star defensive end Olivier Vernon.

By the way, I had conversations with both Plantation American Heritage offensive lineman Jared Wheeler (6-6, 305) and Plantation defensive back Brandon McGee (6-0, 180). Although both of Broward's two most highly-coveted recruits have made unofficial visits to UM in the last month, I get the sense Miami will have to overcome a lot to get either. Wheeler's older sister just finished her freshman year at Florida and helps visiting football recruits on tours at the school. McGee idolizes Deion Sanders and grew up a Florida State fan. Both would be huge gets for Miami in their '09 class -- especially since they would help fill the team's most glaring needs, corner and offensive line. What's could help the Canes in their battle? McGee is looking to play right away. Wheeler is looking for a school with a strong engineering program and small classes.

I'll have my two newest installments of my spring diaries up by this weekend. But if you want to check out my impressions and some of the photos I've shot at other schools (as well as mentions of some of the Canes' potential targets in 2010 and 2011) click on the link to my diaries above.

Each week, Rivals.com recruiting analyst Jamie Newberg will answer your questions about recruiting. This week, fans want to know about Miami's recruiting with it being a relatively down year in South Florida, how the classes for Alabama and Auburn are shaping up and where Brandon McGee and Devon Kennard are likely to land.

Find out the answers to these and other questions in this week's mailbag.

Jamie's Mailbag
Local flavor

With a down year in south Florida, who are some kids Miami coach Randy Shannon looks strong on from other areas of Florida or around the country? And to whom would you compare his recruiting style? He seems pretty no-nonsense and straightforward in a world of exact opposites.

-- Andy from Ocala, Fla.
-----
First, I believe that Miami is off to a nice start. The Hurricanes finished with one of the nation's best classes last season. In fact, I personally thought they were No. 2 behind Alabama. Having said that, they are picking up where they left off. True, it may not be the same year in south Florida for this class as it was with the Class of 2008, but there still are some good prospects down in south Florida. Miami should control Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties once again.


Randy Shannon and staff have had some early success outside of Florida in the 2008 class.
Four of their six commitments are from prospects outside south Florida, with three from out of state. Rivals100 running back Bryce Brown (Wichita, Kan.) headlines the class thus far. Brown whose brother Arthur signed with UM in February is the nation's No. 2 running back, and he was a huge early get for the Hurricanes. Quarterback A.J. Highsmith (Fort Bend, Texas) and tight end Billy Sanders (Phoenix) are the other out-of-state commitments. Highsmith is an athletic quarterback, and Sanders is a rangy and versatile prospect.

Corey White (Jacksonville) is another tight end who has committed, but he ultimately could end up on the offensive line. He is a nasty and physical run blocker.

Miami's "local" commitments are defensive tackle Luther Robinson (Fort Piece, Fla.) and defensive end Olivier Vernon (Miami). Robinson, who may visit LSU and other schools, has seen his stock rise after a great spring. Vernon is quick pass rusher off the edge.

In February's recruiting class, Miami signed 19 players from south Florida alone. Much of that had to do with two things: the great talent in Miami, specifically at one high school (Miami Northwestern) and the momentum the 'Canes had early on last year.

So who is Miami hot and heavy after outside of south Florida? Among the players with offers are offensive linemen Nick Alajajian (Naples, Fla.), and Morgan Moses (Richmond, Va.); linebacker Jelani Jenkins (Wheaton, Md.); wide receivers Rueben Randle (Bastrop, La.) and Andre DeBose (Sanford, Fla.); cornerback Gabe Lynn (Jenks, Okla.); tight ends Orson Charles (Tampa) and Brock DeCicco (Clairton, Pa.); athlete Ray Ray Armstrong (Sanford, Fla.); and defensive ends Craig Roh (Scottsdale, Ariz.), Sam Montgomery (Greenwood, S.C.) and Chris Bonds (Columbia, S.C.).

Don't forget about the local players. Miami will be the team to beat for running back Lamar Miller (Miami k!llian) and is in the hunt for quarterback Eugene Smith (Miramar, Fla.). In addition, keep an eye on linebacker Jon Bostic (Wellington, Fla.), defensive tackle Antwan Lowery (Miami) and guard Jared Wheeler (Plantation, Fla.). When the dust settles, this class will have more balance than last year's in terms of where the prospects are from. But make no mistake: The Hurricanes will get their share from their backyard. They always do.

And I agree with you about Shannon. He is a no-nonsense kind of coach and I am sure a father figure to many of these young men. He also inherited a program that he truly loves. More important, Miami needed someone like him to resurrect the proud tradition of Hurricanes football.

I also believe his approach is one that is needed there just for the simple fact that coaches and parents want to believe their kids are taken care of in the right manner - and that Miami football will return to its glory days. The coach has to sell that, and Shannon's style and personality fit that well.

But as with any CEO, you are only as good as the people around you. In terms of recruiting, Miami has a good group of a.ssistants. Even more vital are the players themselves because they are your best recruiters, and the UM players believe in their coach and the direction they are going.
McGee's mix

Where do you see cornerback Brandon McGee eventually ending up?

-- Steve from Huntsville, Ala.
-----
From what I am hearing right now, I think Ohio State is the team to beat. McGee (Plantation, Fla.) was in Columbus for the Buckeyes' spring game and was blown away. Tennessee and Notre Dame are in the mix, too, and I would say that those are his top three.

At this point, it appears McGee is a player who would like to leave Florida to play college ball. But there's a long way to go.

Tight end talent

Florida will graduate two tight ends this year. Who are the Gators in good shape with at the position?

-- Thomas from Greer, S.C.
-----
Orson Charles (Tampa) is the tight end the Gators covet, but at this time I believe Miami is the team to beat. He grew up a Hurricanes fan and describes Miami as his "dream school." But Miami already has two commitments from tight ends, though one (Corey White) likely will end up on the offensive line.

Georgia is in the mix for Charles, as well. Charles plays at Plant High with quarterback Aaron Murray, a Georgia commitment. Plus, Charles loves how Georgia uses its tight ends.

Some other prospects to keep an eye on are Morrell Presley (Carson, Calif.), Gabrison Holmes (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), Malcolm Bush (Hackensack, N.J.) and Ra'shede Hageman (Minneapolis). There is a lot of talk that Pressley, a USC commitment who is the nation's No. 3 tight end prospect, will visit Gainesville this summer. If Florida whiffs on these guys, new tight end targets will emerge.

Hurricane safety signee Vaughn Telemaque may not be at UM yet, but he already has a good idea what the college game is all about.

That's because he regularly works out with several former teammates who are now playing major college ball "We have a lot of (graduates) that come from USC, UCLA, Colorado, Arizona, Arizona State they all come back for a little workout," Telemaque says. "They mold you and school you on college."

Telemaque says his mind is set on coming in and showing he belongs on the field right away.

"The competitive nature I have, I don't like to sit down too long," Telemaque said. "Nothing personal to the older guys, but I'm not there to just hang out. I'm there to play.

"Coming from the school I did, it molds you into a player where you expect yourself to go out there and to learn as much as you can before you get to college."

Telemaque attended UM's Spring Game and saw a couple of the practices leading up to it. He got a good sense for the speed and talent in Miami's defensive backfield.

"Coach (Wesley) McGriff and everybody were showing me the tempo was higher than in high school," Telemaque said. "In high school you kind of play on your own level, don't play against top-ranked talent. But in college it's always top-ranked talent. It's just about getting my mind frame really good. I have to be competitive, with a chip on my shoulder right away."

Telemaque says he stays in regular contact with McGriff as well as Tommie Robinson, who recruits his area.

"They keep me updated, let me know what they're stressing to the kids, what they need to work on, what they're looking for in the incoming freshmen and older guys," Telemaque said. "They're looking forward to having a positive influence on kids coming in and getting on a roll."

Telemaque says he also hopes to play on special teams as a true freshman.

"I did kickoff and punt (coverage) in high school, and I'm sure I'll do that (at Miami)," he said. "It's exciting, because the kickoff sets up the tempo and you get to go down there and get the first hit. That should help me get on the field real fast."

Academically Telemaque says "I'm all set, ready to go. I've been admitted to Miami already - they sent (the admission letter)."

Berry has already told the Ohio State staff his intentions to play for the Buckeyes next year. No timetable on when that will be made public. Probably this summer after his mother gets up there.

I'm glad Miami didn't offer. I think the ground might be a little to far to make up if they got involved now, but as Im sure you know, had Miami been there from the start this might be completely different.

Ward wont get an offer btw. We are talking Berry/Speed Back, Hyde/Power Back, Hall/ATH/Scatback.

i hope this dosent jinx a lamar miller commit... but from all comments and most other teams wont even waste time trying to talk to lamar cause they feel its a wrap too

I feel you. I personally like Berry a bit more than Miller but we are splitting hairs at that point.

Either way you guys are getting a hell of a combo with those two if it works out. BTW, I think Miller is 150% Hurricane....as long as his grades are okay.

It is extremely early, but it is already becoming evident the running back class of 2010 coming out of Miami-Dade will be special.

Already, the class has a handful of guys who will likely be able to choose to go to any college in the country by the end of their recruiting process.

Miami won’t have to go far to find a quality running back in 2010, but the staff will need to do their research so they find the right fit.

Jakhari Gore – has the most publicity of any of the Miami running backs from this class because he is the cousin of former UM running back Frank Gore and he has produced since his freshman year. He has a similar running style to his cousin in that he has very quick feet, great balance, and great vision. Gore ran for 1,106 yards and 13 touchdowns on 114 carries as a sophomore.

Eduardo Clements – is the most complete running back of the class. He has the size and strength to run between the tackles and he has the speed to break long runs outside. He has been the starting running back at Booker T. Washington the previous two years. Clements was the MVP of the state championship game last year for the Tornadoes when he rushed for 100 yards and scored two touchdowns in the game. He ran for 961 yards and 19 touchdowns on 158 carries as a sophomore.

Hosey Williams – is probably the running back with the most explosive ability in the group. He has a great burst through the line of scrimmage and is rarely caught if he manages to break into the secondary. Williams has been ultra-productive in his career. He has rushed for over 1,000 yards as a freshman and sophomore and tied for the Dade County lead last year with 20 rushing touchdowns on the season. Williams is the smallest running back on this list and that might prevent UM from giving him a look.

Brandon Gainer – is the power back of the group who is at his best running between the tackles. He is a strong back who has the frame to likely be at about 210 pounds by his senior year. Gainer’s sophomore season was cut short due to a shoulder injury he sustained mid-season, but he still managed to total 487 yards and four touchdowns on 64 carries.

Corvin Lamb – has a gear which few running backs posses. He runs a legitimated 4.3 in the 40 and is well built at 5-feet-9 and 180 pounds. He runs well outside of the tackles and gets upfield in a hurry. An Lamb must improve in the coming years is his ability to run tough through traffic. He has a tendency to be brought down on tackles that he should break. Lamb’s speed will make him one of the most sought after backs in the 2010 class though. He ran for 350 yards and four touchdowns on 31 carries as a sophomore.

With spring football right around the corner, expect the Miami coaching staff to begin passing out more offers to local players.

The 2009 class of South Florida talent may not be as deep as the 2008 class, but there is still talent in the area to be had.

The following is a list of players who haven’t received a Miami offer yet that I would like to see UM offer this spring.

Denard Robinson

Robinson wants to play quarterback in college, but at 5-feet-11 and 180 pounds, his future is in playing cornerback. With UM’s great need for corners in the 2009 class, the coaching staff should give Robinson his offer and work on convincing him to play defensive back. With his 4.3 speed in the 40, Robinson has the raw ability and potential to be a strong corner at the college level.

Quan Fletcher

Fletcher is not the typical linebacker Miami targets because he is big at 6-2, 240 pounds, but all he does is make plays. Fletcher has natural linebacker instincts that can’t be taught and he will likely be a productive middle linebacker at whatever school he ends up. Many who watched Fletcher believe he is a better football player than his Krop teammate Ettiene Sabino was. All Fletcher did last season was finish with 142 tackles, 37 tackles for loss, nine sacks, two interceptions, and seven fumble recoveries.

Ricardo Dixon

With Miami’s need at corner, there is no reason Dixon should not already have an offer. UM may be concerned with Dixon’s slight build, but much like current UM sophomore DeMarcus Van Dyke, Dixon will put on the needed weight in college. Dixon admits to being a big Miami fan still to this day and he likely won’t be a tough sell for the UM coaching staff.

Frankie Telfort

It is time for Miami to recruit Telfort. At six-feet and 200 pounds, Telfort is the type of linebacker Miami loves to target. Telfort reportedly runs a 4.4 in the 40 and carries himself with a UM swagger. I expect Miami to give him a serious look this spring when the staff makes it out to Gulliver Prep this spring.

Jaamal Berry

Berry has been a rising star on the national recruiting scene in the last two months. Berry holds offers from virtually every major program east of the Mississippi. Berry is a punishing runner who has 4.4 speed in the 40. No matter how many running backs Miami wants to bring in with the 2009 class UM should not let a player with the elite talent of Berry leave South Florida.

Palmetto running back Jaamal Berry, rated Miami-Dade's best '09 prospect and 37th nationally by rivals.com, said he is surprised UM hasn't offered him a scholarship. ''I grew up a UM fan. I guess they don't want me,'' he said. UM instead offered a scholarship to k!llian running back Lamar Miller (ranked 80th and undecided) and has an oral commitment from Wichita (Kansas) RB Bryce Brown (ranked ninth in the country and UM linebacker Arthur Brown's brother).
if we needed another back and offered him, i'm positive berry wouldve jumped on it.

I agree, but "would've" is the key word. At this point, I don't think he would.

It works out for all of us though. You guys get 2 outstanding RB's, and we get our 2 outstanding RB's from Florida.
