Jacksonville Raines High School DE Lawrence Henderson attended all three days of the Randy Shannon summer camp, emerging with Defensive End MVP honors.

After the camp ended Henderson sought out defensive line coach Clint Hurtt and defensive coordinator Bill Young.

"Coach, I'm coming to Miami," he told them.

"Coach Hurtt said, `We'd love to have you here,' and the coordinator said, `We won't say no,'" Henderson said. "They were excited."

Just one problem: Henderson hadn't cleared the commitment with his family. His mother, Jacqueline, had asked him to come home and discuss things before making any final decision.

"His word's his bond, and he has to make sure first," Jacqueline said. "Yes he would like to go to Miami, but at this time we're still unsure as to what's going to be best for him academically, not just on that football field."

Henderson had previously told CaneSport.com that it's "a done deal" for Miami.

But now the Canes will have to wait a while before getting that definitive word.

Henderson lists other offers from West Virginia, East Carolina, Indiana, Alabama State, Florida A&M, Western Kentucky and Appalachian State.

Henderson grew up thinking basketball was his future.

But then the school's football coach, Cedric Thornton, talked the 6-foot-5, 220-pounder into coming out for the football team last year.

He missed four games with a knee injury, and had a handful of sacks. He didn't attend any combines, but showed college coaches enough potential that he landed some offers this spring.

Including Miami.

After getting the offer he told CaneSport he might make a decision after the camp.

But that decision came a little too quickly. Regardless, Henderson said he had a great experience at UM.

"I loved working with coach Hurtt," Henderson said. "He was professional. He taught me stuff, kept working with me. I kept learning. He got me better. I did well, just went out and competed, did my thing."

Henderson said he held his own against a top national prospect, offensive lineman Xavier Su'a Filo, who attended the camp from Utah.

"I went against him every time, all the time," Henderson said. "I did well with him. I didn't even know who he was until after the camp."

Just how good is Henderson?

"Lawrence is a 6-5, 220-pound kid that thought he was a basketball player," Raines High coach Cedric Thornton said. "I convinced him you cannot dribble or shoot, so let me show you how to make some money. What he does well right now is he just doesn't quit. His motor – he's learning how to rush the passer, how to play the run. What he does well is he has a beautiful frame, works hard, loves the weight room. Everyone that looks at this kid says he'll be 270, 280 with no problem. I think he'll be a very dynamic pass rusher. He's a big kid with long arms who can run."

* Henderson's teammate, rising junior Louis Nix, received the DL award at the camp

Tampa (Fla.) Plant High School TE Orson Charles knew he wanted to get to know coach Randy Shannon better. So, he figured, what better way to learn more about UM's coach than get a private tour of campus from him?

Charles was planning to attend the summer camp on Sunday and asked his recruiter, Joe Pannunzio, if Shannon would show him around the school.

"At first I thought (Shannon) would say no, but he was real cool about it," said Charles, who lists a Cane scholarship offer. "Coach Pannunzio asked him and he said yes.

"It was a half hour tour. He showed me engineering classes – that's my major, and things like that. It was just me and him."

Charles had some questions for Shannon.

One involved negative recruiting – Charles said he'd been hearing rumors about Shannon not staying at UM long-term.

"That was a main question I wanted to ask him because I'd heard that from other people - he told me he's not going anywhere, that he has a four-year contract," Charles said. "I also asked about dorms, food, classes. He said it's 10 hours of study hall each week and they're rebuilding new dorms and they get a card to swipe for food whenever they want."

Of the overall tour, Charles said, "It was my first time seeing (the entire campus) and I liked it. I'd been there before but hadn't gotten a tour. The head coach gave me a tour, so I felt kind of special."

Charles had visited the Georgia campus on Saturday before driving to UM on Sunday. He participated in the camp at Miami that day.

"I worked with (coach) Pannunzio," Charles said. "He was teaching me how to get in a stance, short steps, explosion and catching the ball through traffic."

Of where Miami stands in his recruiting picture, Charles said, "They're still up there. I'm still evaluating. I'm going to have my top 5 or 10 at the end of the summer. Miami will be in there."

After Charles left UM he headed to the University of Florida, where he's camping today.

He says his most recent offers are from Clemson and Rutgers. He lists other offers from the likes of Oklahoma, Ohio State, Georgia, FSU and Kansas.

"Miami was nice, I loved the city. It's by the ocean. It was real nice."

Green says he spent most of his time while at UM working with defensive backs coach Wesley McGriff.

"He was telling us since I'll be playing defensive back about all the DB's that have been through the program," Green said. "He talked about winning another championship, how he needs some good defensive backs to come in."

Green took the visit with his brother and father.

"They loved it, too," he said. "They just liked all the scenery, thought it was a great place."

Green's highlight of the visit?

"I really liked how while we were at the camp how coach McGriff ran his drills," Green said. "He stayed on his players until everything was perfect. I liked the campus even though it was kind of small. I think it could fit me pretty well."

Green says he also spent some time with UM tailback Shawnbrey McNeal.

"He was telling me the Miami team, it's like a big family, that everyone looks out for each other," Green said. "He said that it's a team of brothers."

Of where his time at UM puts the Canes, Green said, "Miami's way up there. I really like the program. They're definitely one of my top schools."

Green now has some other visits on tap. He says he'll visit Ohio State this week, and then Illinois.

"I'll be taking my official visits, and I know for a fact that Miami will be an official visit," he said.

For now Green isn't listing any favorites.

But Miami certainly left an impression.

"Coach McGriff said I'm a top cornerback he's going to be trying to get," Green said. "It was a great weekend."

I didn't expect to write about football this week, but I'll make it quick. Baseball deserves ALL the focus.

But I saw the news where incoming freshman linebacker Zach Kane was arrested and charged with aggravated a.ssault. He is accused of breaking a bottle over a 21-year-old man's head at a college graduation party.

If guilty, the question is whether the University of Miami will honor its scholarship offer. Coach Randy Shannon has been real big on character and it will be interesting to see what decision is made. We've seen Shannon punish guys for being late to practice or missing class, so what happens now? He released a statement earlier today:

“I am aware of the situation involving Zach Kane and am in the process of gathering more information," Shannon said in the statement. "We hold our current and future student-athletes to an extremely high standard. It is important that Zach and his family focus on resolving this issue. I will have no further comment until Zach’s legal issue has gone through the judicial system.”

I won't pass judgment because I don't know Zach Kane from Zach Morris. I do know Kane has a history of controlling his temper on the field. He was ejected a couple of times during his high school career. When I spoke to him last month, we discussed those incidents. He simply said they were just overblown.

UM probably hasn't dealt with anything like this since Willie Williams in 2004 and we all know how that turned out. Stay tuned ...

Fort Myers High School TE Stephen Plein isn't a major name on national recruiting boards.

He played for a small school in Georgia - Canton (Ga.) Sequoyah High – before transferring to Fort Myers (Fla.) High School in January. He opened eyes with a strong spring, earning offers from Eastern Carolina, Eastern Michigan and Marshall.

And he was poised to land more offers with a busy summer camp schedule that included stops at Miami, Ohio State, Louisville, Kentucky and NC State.

His first stop was UM, where he participated in the Randy Shannon Summer Camp this past Sunday. Cane coaches were impressed, and he received an offer yesterday during a phone call to coach Tommie Robinson.

"They offered me and I committed right away," said Plein, a 6-foot-6, 240-pounder who grew up in Forth Myers before moving to Georgia as an 8-year-old. "It's all said and done. Miami's close to home, and I don't want to go out of state. I love the campus, the tradition. I've been a Cane fan for a pretty long time. I love the coaching staff."

Plein won't be attending camps at the other schools now.

"I'm not taking any other visits, it's a done deal," Plein said. "I'm 100 percent solid to Miami. I'm going to sign with Miami, and I'm thinking about graduating early."

Plein worked at tight end at the summer camp, but he says coaches have also mentioned defensive end and offensive line as possibilities. He'll play defensive end for the first time this season in addition to tight end.

"Stephen's a kid blessed with a lot of natural ability," Fort Myers High coach Sam Sirianni said. "He's got a great physique. I think he's still a pup. He's got good ball skills, he moves well. If he has a growth spurt you don't know what position he'll end up playing. He's a big boy, has a lot of ability and upside ahead of him. He's still a raw talent that can only get better."

Plein finished his junior season with nine catches for 160 yards and one touchdown. He played mostly as a slot receiver. As a sophomore he caught 11 passes for 200 yards and two scores.

He's put on 20 pounds since last season.

"The kid's physicalness and size speaks for itself," Sirianni said. "The athleticism piques a lot of interest. If he's 6-7 and 280 and outgrows tight end, he'll be a great tackle. In another month he'd have had five or six offers from the big boys."

Plein says there's one name he's heard since seventh grade when people see him play: Jeremy Shockey.

"Everyone at the camp was calling me another Jeremy Shockey," he said. "Everyone calls me Shockey. I have blond hair. I'm not built completely like him, but I kind of look like him in pads and play like him. He's also kind of like my football hero."

Plein can in part thank his teammate, Cane signee C.J. Odom, for getting UM to begin recruiting him.

"C.J., he helped get Miami to look at me in the first place," Plein said. "He said they had a good kid here and to come check me out. They came to a practice and watched my spring game and then I went to the camp."

Plein says he's not worrying about his future position at UM, but says "more than likely" he'll begin as a tight end.

"I've always had a hard time putting on weight and keeping it on," he said. "I could probably get up to 270. Coach (Randy) Shannon said if I get up to 295 I could play offensive line. With Miami's strength program it's possible, but they want me to play tight end I think."

He says when he was at UM "They were battling in the coaches' office – the defensive line coach and tight ends coach said it's going to be a big battle for which side of the ball they want me to play. But I'll most likely be playing tight end."

Plein says the Cane offer lifted a big weight off his chest.

"It's the biggest thing that's ever happened to me," he said. "It's what I've been working for since seventh grade. All the hard work has finally paid off. It almost hasn't set in yet, but I'm going to be a Hurricane. There's no more recruiting."

For us to make any noise we need a lot of things to happen but I like the team. We need Hurricane James to be like he was as a Freshman. We need Marve to play like a real QB and we need some of star defensive freshman to step up. Like Fortson.. We are known for those impact D-Tackles. So he better show up or get the fu*k out

You know what else is crazy, remember how close we were to getting LeSean McCoy from Pitt? Whatever though were going to be getting some crazy backs the next couple of years. Hurricane James needs a big year and then bounce to the NFL or hes going to get left behind.

With the first summer session at the University of Miami set to begin, incoming freshmen say they are reporting tomorrow.

And it appears as of now that all the signees will get through admissions except for four student-athletes - C.J. Holton, C.J. Odom, Brandon Washington and Antonio Harper.

Other signees that were on the fence academically in the last month were Benjamin Jones, Gavin Hardin and Andrew Smith. Jones says he will be reporting for the second summer session while Hardin and Smith say they will be on campus tomorrow.

Detroit (MI) Cass Tech High School CB Dior Mathis attended all three days of the recent Randy Shannon Summer Camp, and he emerged with the Defensive Back MVP award.

That's even more impressive considering he's a rising junior. Despite his age, he's already getting plenty of college attention. Miami, Florida and several other top programs are sending him recruiting mail. Colleges can't officially offer until Sept. 1 per NCAA rules.

But he believes he'll get a lot of offers on his doorstep that day, including Miami.

And, if the Cane offer does arrive, he says not to be surprised if he pulls the trigger right away.

"Right now I'm thinking about committing to Miami Sept. 1," he said. "I talked to my family, and they want me to commit too."

His family went to Miami with him for the summer camp.

"They want me to go there, too," Mathis said.

The chances he commits a.ssuming he gets an offer Sept. 1?

"Right now it's a 98 percent chance," he said. "I love it. That's been my dream school since I've been little. I love Miami. I've been loving Miami ever since I've been playing football. One day when I was 10 I turned on the TV – I started liking the colors, didn't even find out about the school until the next year. I saw people going from there to the NFL, how coaches make their players ready for pro ball."

Mathis says he decided to attend the summer camp because "I love the school so much and I had to show them what I've got."

He worked with coach Wesley McGriff at the summer camp.

"I love coach McGriff and he loves me also," Mathis said. "He was so impressed, had already heard about my skill level and he was very impressed.

"I also talked to coach Shannon at the camp. He said how I had good footwork."

Of his overall time in Miami, Mathis said, "That was my first time there and I loved it. It was just amazing, seeing South Beach, checking out the beaches."

Mathis says other schools on his early short list are Michigan, Ohio State, LSU and USC.

Last year as a sophomore Mathis finished with three interceptions and had six touchdowns at running back.

Garland (TX) South Garland High School OL Jeramie Roberts took an unofficial visit to Miami two weekends ago and was blown away.

"It was great, was really cool," the 6-foot-4, 305-pounder said. "It's a very beautiful campus, a beautiful area."

He enjoyed the visit so much that the Canes are now his frontrunner.

"Miami's at the top," Roberts said. "I have four main colleges I'm looking at – Miami, Kansas, Baylor and Colorado. Miami's high above the other three. I haven't been to Kansas or Colorado yet, so I'll see when I go there."

If the Canes remain at the top after he takes those two visits, which could happen by the end of July, he'll be heading to Miami.

He has offers from all of his top four choices.

"When I was there all the coaching staff was real nice," Roberts said. "I got to hang out with most of the offensive linemen. They were just talking to me, telling me to pick a college I'd want to go to. They were going on and on about Miami, told me a lot of good things. Miami's a great school to go to, a very good opportunity.

"Miami coaches know how much I like it there. I talked to them a lot while I was there. We talked about all the things that will be going on there."

Roberts also got a face-to-face meeting with school president Donna Shalala while on the visit.

"She was talking about how Miami's a very good academic college beside a good football college, how the students are, that it's a family kind of college," Roberts said. "And I noticed that when I was looking around the college. It was really neat."

Roberts is also building a strong relationship with UM line coach Jeff Stoutland.

"All the offensive linemen there talked highly of him - he's very straightforward with us, is very well-spoken and I like him a lot," Roberts said.

Roberts played only defense last year, finishing with 14 sacks, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. He's playing right guard this year and will also play in some specialty situations on defense.

He played both ways as a freshman and sophomore, and every college is recruiting him for offensive line with the excpeiton of Purdue, which wants him on the defensive line.
