Wichita (KS) East High School RB Bryce Brown remains a soft Hurricane commitment.

"As far as I know he's going to Miami," East High coach Brian Byers said. "With him there's crap out there all the time, and he is taking all his visits."

For his part, Brown has said he remains committed to UM but is also considering Oregon. He recently told a Rivals.com website that Oregon is his top school but that he is still a Miami commitment.

Byers says whichever school winds up with Brown on campus will be extremely lucky.

"He's got a burst of speed that most people don't have," Byers said. "He's got great vision and anticipation. He can see things and see cuts I think sometimes before they're even there. And with that burst of speed he's out the gate. If you don't tackle him, get a body on him, he's probably gone."

Byers coached high school against Barry Sanders back in the day.

"He's a lot faster than Barry in terms of pure straight ahead speed," Byers said. "Barry is one of the quickest I ever saw - he was so quick with his feet and his hips. You could say Bryce is not quite as quick as Barry, but is faster than Barry."

Byers knows there's a big transition from high school ball to college ball. It's something Bryce's brother, Arthur, went through at UM this past season.

So what does Bryce need the most work on to be ready to make an impact at the next level?

"Holding onto the ball," Byers said. "He has a tendency to sometimes fumble. He has a problem not getting the ball high and tight, carries it too loose. And the other thing is sometimes we'd have to get him to slow down on a toss sweep because he would see - his vision, he sees things so quick - he sees things that he thinks will develop, and he takes off and doesn't have his eye on the ball.

"The other thing, depending on how you want to use him, is he needs to work on his receiving. He's good at catching across the middle, swing passes, hitches, taking the ball deep if he's going downfield. He just needs to work on catching a little better."

Brown finished his senior season with a league record 1,850 yards - the second time he broke his own season rushing record. He also scored 31 touchdowns.

the longer we go without hiring an OC, the bleaker its lookin....shannon not only needs to make a good hire, he needs to do it quickly. and i hear rueben randle is still interested, but he's waiting to see how the OC situation plays out too.

i been hearing randle is looking at as hard recently since nix is gone but i still think he goes to LSU. Getting a good OC is crucial and shannon better not stick to this "we need a pro-offense" sh*t cuz we got tooo many playmakers WR

Vernon is a Cane boys!!!

Olivier Vernon isn't going anywhere. He's staying home with the Hurricanes. In a small get together in his high school principal's office, Vernon told friends and family moments ago he is going to stick with his commitment to the University of Miami, which he made back in August.

Img_1212"It was kind of hard because all three teams can win a national championship," said Vernon a 4-star Rivals.com recruit and 6-4, 240-pound defensive end, who was mulling over UM, Alabama and Florida State until the past week. "But UM has been my dream school since I was young. I felt like I was destined to play for them."

Vernon, who graduated from American High Thursday, will begin classes at UM Jan. 20 and will room with freshman defensive tackle Curtis Porter in the spring. He will wear No. 17. Eventually, he will switch over and room with fellow incoming freshman Dyron Dye in the fall.

He's looking forward to rehabbing his injured left ankle, which he injured in the season opener against Coral Reef, with UM doctors and trainers. He said he's still experiencing some pain and could have some ligament damage. But he expects to be ready for spring ball in late February.

The Hurricanes are definitely getting a strong player. Vernon is benching 335 pounds and squating 455. "I've kept lifting, kept working in the weight room even though I haven't played," Vernon said. "I'll be ready."

I think when BB said "he'll pay" most likely means that Bodj will go to Clemson and BB will come down to Miami and since we play them the second week of the season...

so it looks like we'll be hiring another DC. Young just bolted to Okie State.

It seems that we are hot on Martinez from UGA. I think he'd be a pretty good hire considering that he is a great recruiter and knows what it takes to succeed at Miami.

The good side is that it seems that we probably wont be losing any defensive recruits. I don't think many of the guys comin in playing defense are comign to Miami because of Young.

Does this mean a better shot with Greg Reid? I know he de-committed from UF but was favoring Georgia from what I remember. I think he cancelled his UM visit tho :confused12:

Another surprise visitor in store?

Recruiting coordinator Clint Hurtt, running backs coach Tommie Robinson and strength coach Andreu Swasey pulled off a nice surprise earlier this week when they were able to convince Missouri commitment U.S. Army-All American Sheldon Richardson (who grew up dreaming of playing for Miami) to agree on taking a visit to the University of Miami on the final recruiting weekend before National Signing Day.

Greg Reid played mostly running back for Valdosta this year and gave an early commitment to the Florida Gators. He could take his last recruiting visit to UM. Now, it looks like Hurtt may be on the verge of pulling off some more magic by getting the Defensive MVP of the Under-Armour All-American Game, blue-chip cornerback Greg Reid to take a visit to UM that same weekend. That is, if Reid (5-9, 175) backs out of his scheduled visit to Georgia. The Valdosta Lowndes standout has been getting tugged Miami's way for awhile now, especially after learning in late November he's actually related to another Canes recruit -- cornerback Jamal Reid.

"We actually found out in late November that our granddaddies were brothers," said Jamal Reid, who played against Greg Reid in the Under-Armour Game. "Our families are originially from Jasper and we never knew it. Ever since then, we got each other's cell phone numbers and have been talking to each other. I'll call him every now and then to tell him he should be a Cane with me. I was supposed to be visiting Miami this weekend, but I changed it so we could come together on the 30th. Hopefully, he can come with me."

Greg Reid originally committed to the University of Florida nearly a year ago but recently upset Gators coach Urban Meyer on his official visit to Gainesville when he told him he wanted to continue taking visits. He is supposed to be taking his final two visits to Alabama and Georgia the next two weekends.

Jamal Reid catches a TD pass in the Under-Armour game over fellow Canes recruit Prince Kent. He is being recruited to UM as an athlete. As for Jamal Reid, he says he's keeping his fingers crossed his cousin will give the Canes a shot. "He’s a good athlete. He’s got great skills," said Jamal, who said Canes coaches have told him they are bringing him in to play wherever he can help UM the best -- receiver or corner. "He said he wants to get playing time wherever he goes. I told him what better place than Miami. They'll play you there as a freshman. The best man sees the field. I think it would be awesome for us to line up against each other every day in practice."

> For those of you crossing your fingers about possibly seeing Andre Debose pull a similar surprise and joining Reid and his two Sanford Seminole teammates on the last recruiting weekend of the year, don't hold your breath. I've been told Debose has made it clear to UM he's sticking with the Gators.

> Earlier today, I came out with what I thought was the right list of visitors for this weekend based on conversations I had with high school coaches and in some cases the players themselves. Turns out, some of my dates were a little mixed up. I was told the correct list of visitors for this weekend are: QB A.J. Highsmith (Fort Bend, Tx.), OL Cory White (Fleming Island, Fla.), OL Malcolm Bunche (Newark, Del.), OL Marcus Hall (Cleveland, Oh.), OL Jared Wheeler (Plantation American Heritage), DE Shayon Green (Tift County, Ga.), LB Sam Barrington (Jacksonville Parker) and CB Kayvon Webster (Monsingor Pace).

The visitors for the weekend of Jan. 30 are expected to be OL Andrew Tiller (Nassau CC, NJ), OL Peter White (Washington D.C., St. John’s College Prep), TE Sheldon Richardson (St. Louis, Mo.), CB Jamal Reid (Mayo Lafeyette), DE Dyron Dye (Sanford Seminole), DB Ray Ray Armstrong (Sanford Seminole) and DB Prince Kent (Norcross, Ga.). Greg Reid will join them if he decides to switch his visit (we could find out as early as tonight). Another possible surprise visitor could include former commitment and tight end Billy Sanders, who switched his commitment to UCLA but I'm told is now having second thoughts and UM is under the impression he will visit that weekend.

> As for the Bryce Brown drama, I was told by a staffer tonight the Hurricanes fully expect Brown to sign with UM on national signing day. But he has expressed interest to the coaching staff about knowing who the offensive coordinator will be. Brown could take a visit to UM on the weekend of the 30th too.

> Earlier today, I reported linebacker Greg King and tight end Terrell Mitchell as possible targets and visitors over the next two weeks. Consider them backup plans at this point. King's coach told me himself after I posted my earlier blog this morniing that UM coaches had been cooling off King, who is likely going to pick someone else anyway. Mitchell's coach told me they just began recruiting him last week. Smells like a fall back plan to me.

> Also of note, I was told earlier today Miami is not hell-bent on using all 27 scholarships on NSD. They could hold a few. As of now, I've been told UM coaches figure on only having 15 scholarships available for 2010.
