Canes Want To End Season On A Good Note

After today, the Hurricanes will have at least two weeks to get away from football.

They want the time off to be as relaxing as possible, and the best way for that to happen is to end the regular season with a victory. The Hurricanes are taking that approach into their game with South Florida at Raymond James Stadium on Saturday.

There's not much to play for in terms of bowl-positioning, but UM is still out to achieve certain goals. A victory keeps a 10-win season within reach. The last time the Hurricanes won at least 10 games was 2003, when they went 11-2 and beat Florida State in the Orange Bowl.

"If you lose this last game, you have a month before your next game," center A.J. Trump said. "So you really want to go out on a good note, because that month can be rough. Our goal is 10 wins."

UM (8-3, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) will have to get past a fired up South Florida team. The Bulls (7-3, 3-3 in Big East) are searching for their first win against the Hurricanes. The teams' only other meeting came in 2005, when UM won 27-7.

Despite the youth of the series, it remains a rivalry because many of the players are familiar with each other.

"All the kids are basically from South Florida," quarterback Jacory Harris said. "Some of them wanted to go to Miami, Florida, Florida State, but they're playing for USF. Plus, you have a lot of friends on the team. It's going to be a big-time game."

A win would also help coach Randy Shannon improve his poor record in November, where the Hurricanes are 4-7 in his three seasons. UM has lost the last two regular-season finales.

"There's a lot for us to play for," Shannon said. "We have an opportunity to go 4-0 (in non-conference games). It can be the first time in a long time we can win the last game of the season."

Although the Hurricanes have a slim chance of playing in a BCS bowl, they are likely headed to the Champs Sports Bowl, Meineke Car Care Bowl or Music City Bowl. All are on the same level as last year's trip to San Francisco for the Emerald Bowl, which is why reaching 10 wins is so important.

"It would show that we improved from last year," receiver Leonard Hankerson said. "We're working hard to get the job done, and we know that we have a lot of players around here that can get things to where we want to be in the near future."

Greg Dent Decommits From UM

One of the University of Miami’s top commitments has decided to change his mind and head in the other direction while Syracuse continues to make south Florida a destination.

Greg Dent, the versatile Glades Central defensive back/receiver who verbally committed to the University of Miami earlier this month, changed his mind and went with a program that many had felt that he would head to all along.

The impressive Dent, who had watched his stock rise more than any other player in Florida in the past 10 months, spent his Thanksgiving Day changing his mind and will now be headed to Tallahassee and the Florida State Seminoles.

Many had speculated that the 5-11, 185-pound Dent wanted to play receiver at the next level.

“They offered me at receiver and I’ve been expecting that,” Dent said. “I didn’t want to play defense. They knew I wanted to play receiver, so they told me I could.”

As a receiver, Dent caught 35 passes for 899 yards and 10 touchdowns during the regular season. He also grabbed two interceptions and had a pair of special teams touchdowns.

Sizing Up Miami Oral Commitments

With UM's regular season over, attention turns to wrapping up a recruiting class that has 24 oral commitments and a few more pieces to add before signing day Feb. 3.

``I don't see that signature player, but they have a lot of very good players,'' recruiting analyst Charles Fishbein said. Rivals ranks UM's class 12th.

The Canes have four commitments in ESPN's top 150 -- running back Storm Johnson (21), defensive tackles Todd Chandler (62) and Louis Nix (99) and defensive end David Perry (117). Here's where UM stands:

• Quarterback (one oral commitment): UM pursued Pace's Stephen Morris instead of Central's Jeffrey Godfrey because he's taller (6-3 to 5-11) and better-suited for Miami's offense. ``I would like to have seen them get a big-time quarterback, but Morris has upside and a chance to surprise people,'' Rivals' Jamie Newberg said.

• Running back (four): Booker T. Washington's Eduardo Clements (ranked 137th among all prospects by Rivals), Georgia-based Johnson and Naples' Darion Hall -- all oral commitments -- ``each bring something a little different,'' Fishbein said. ``Johnson is a bigger back. Clements has good speed and great hands.'' Tampa fullback Maurice Hagens ``is very productive'' and will develop behind injured Pat Hill, who's expected to get another year of eligibility.

• Receiver (one): Oral commitment Allen Hurns, 6-3, (Carol City) had seven catches for 113 yards in six quarters before a season-ending knee injury. Miami Northwestern's Michaelee Harris said UM ``has a good chance'' among his five finalists. Miramar's elite Ivan McCartney is considering seven schools -- including UM and UF -- but said Miami's depth of sophomore receivers ``sort of'' works against them. Jacksonville-based Sean Tapley, a South Carolina commitment, told canesport.com that it's ``50-50'' he will end up at Miami.

• Tight end (two): Belle Glades' Clive Walford and Massachusetts-based Andrew Tallman. Walford topped 400 yards in receptions this season, his first year of organized football, but is raw, Fishbein said. UM recruited Tallman as a tight end but told him he could end up on the offensive or defensive lines.

Texas-based junior college tight end Chase Ford (34 catches, 571 yards) told canesport.com that his only offer is from UM, and he's interested. With Dedrick Epps, Tervaris Johnson and Jimmy Graham graduating, tight end is a concern -- injured senior Richard Gordon figures to get another year of eligibility.

• Offensive line (three): Davie Western High guard Johnathan Feliciano, Wellington Palm Beach Central's Shane McDermott and Delaware's Malcolm Bunche (in prep school). ``I like Feliciano a lot,'' Fishbein said. ``The other guys are projects.''

The jewel -- if he commits -- would be Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas tackle Brandon Linder. He leans toward UM, but Notre Dame, Ohio State and UF are pushing. His teammate, tackle Jermaine Barton, is considering UM and Wisconsin.

• Defensive line (four): Nix, who appears to be waffling, has visited Notre Dame and plans to visit UF. Jacksonville-based defensive tackles Nix and Tavadis Glenn ``are high-ceiling guys'' but far from sure bets, Fishbein said. Miami Northwestern's Chandler ``is the best of those three factoring in leadership -- a better version of [former Cane] Teraz McCray.'' The fourth oral commitment, Perry (from University School in Fort Lauderdale) is not as good as UM freshman Olivier Vernon, Fishbein said. Hialeah defensive end Corey Lemonier said Miami is ``really high'' but won't decide until signing day.

• Linebacker (four): Tyrone Cornelius (Stone Mountain, Ga.), Travis Williams (Norfolk, Va.), Javarie Johnson (Washington) and Kevin Nelson (Gainesville). ``Johnson is more ready to contribute than the others,'' Fishbein said. Williams, incredibly, has more than 70 career sacks.

• Defensive backs (five): Devont'a Davis (Gainesville), Keion Payne (St. Thomas Aquinas), Raheam Buxton (Pahokee), Jeremy Davis (Fort Myers), Kacy Rodgers (Southlake, Texas). ``They've done well at cornerback, but there's no Lemarcus Joyner in that group,'' Newberg said, referring to an uncommitted St. Thomas Aquinas defensive back who is No. 5 among all prospects but wants to go away for college.

Payne is very good, but Devont'a Davis ``can be the best of that group,'' Fishbein said. ``Buxton was a reach. Jeremy Davis is one of their top three recruits in terms of potential.'' Belle Glades' Greg Dent changed his commitment from UM to FSU last week because he wants to play receiver.

Times have changed.



The 9-3 record that Miami capped Saturday with a win over South Florida isn't what Shannon aspires to as a coach. But after the 5-7 debacle in 2007 and the three-game losing streak that brought 2008 to a disappointing close, it's clear the Hurricanes are getting closer to that championship level again.



They jumped two spots to No. 17 in Sunday's AP poll.



"We're on the right track," Shannon said. "We're showing improvement every time that we step on the football field and every year, we've improved. And the more that we keep improving, the better this football team's going to be."



The Hurricanes, who finished third in the ACC's Coastal Division - and were the only conference team to beat division titlist Georgia Tech in the regular season - will take the next couple weeks off with little football activity, except for a team meeting and weightlifting.



They could know as early as next Sunday which bowl has extended an invitation, with the most logical possibilities including the Chick-fil-A, Gator and Champs Sports bowls, although the Bowl Championship Series hasn't officially said the Hurricanes are out of consideration for an at-large spot there, either.



"You'd always want a shot at the BCS bowl opportunity," Shannon said Sunday. "Like I tell the guys, it's out of our hands. We've got to just look at whatever falls in our lap and take that next step. Be proud of what you guys have done, accept whichever bowl that you have and go represent the University of Miami wherever you're at."

There wasn't much pride evident at the end of the 2007 or '08 seasons.



Among the trends for the Hurricanes in Shannon's first two seasons as head coach at his alma mater were end-of-season swoons. Miami lost four straight and six of its last seven two years ago, then three straight including an Emerald Bowl loss to California to cap last season.



This season, Miami won four of its final five games, and it'll go down as the first time since 2005 that the Hurricanes never had a multi-game losing streak.



Plus, the Hurricanes are one of only five teams nationally so far this season with at least three wins over ranked teams. Alabama is 4-0 against teams in the Top 25, Stanford is 3-0, Miami and Oregon are 3-1 and USC is 3-2 in that situation.



All good signs, the Hurricanes insist, that a true championship run isn't far off.

"Coach Shannon has really taken the time to put a lot on this team and he's progressed since he's been here the past three years," Miami quarterback Jacory Harris said. "We're just going out there and having fun every day. Practice, weight room, on the field, wherever we're at, we're just having fun and that's the reason we're 9-3. That's the reason we've had such a successful season."



Only 13 teams have won more games so far this season than the Hurricanes. Two years ago, 73 teams won more than Miami; last year, that number was 41.



"Feels a whole lot better now," cornerback Brandon Harris said. "We're one game closer to that 10-win season. Get that 10-win season, momentum is back on our side as a football team and as a program, and we go into next season with pretty high expectations."

Chris Dunkley Talking Recruiting

Pahokee (FL) High School WR Chris Dunkley says he's heard plenty of rumors that he's already committed to Florida.

"I've also heard rumors that I've committed to Miami," he says. "There are rumors every day."

Dunkley says that "I've never committed anywhere."

He adds, "Recruiting, it has been crazy. It's not too bad, though. I just don't answer my phone."

Of UM, he says, "Miami's definitely still in the picture. I've been talking with coach (Aubrey) Hill and coach (Clint) Hurtt. We have a real good relationship. They just talk about football, the program."

Dunkley attended several UM home games this season.

"I went for the Clemson game and Georgia Tech and FAMU," he said. "I went in the locker room after - it was cool.

"I talked to (Travis) Benjamin, Jacory (Harris), Aldarius (Johnson) and Brandon (Washington). We talk outside of the locker room, too. They don't tell me to come there, just say to do what's best for me and if Miami's what it is, then welcome to the family."

He adds, "Miami, I like how they throw the ball, the new offense."

Dunkley says he's narrowed things down to four schools: Miami, Alabama, Georgia and Florida.

"I don't know who leads right now," he said.

He'll announce the lucky school at the Army All-American game, which is set for Jan. 9.

Of what he wants in a college, he says, "A good receivers coach. And academics - I'm going to study law."

Dunkley says he has no official visits set up yet.

His senior year stats are impressive: Over 600 receiving yards with six touchdown catches

First Miami Commit of 2011

Don't be surprised if one of Miami's earliest Class of 2011 commitments is Vero Beach (FL) High School OL Marcus Jackson .

Jackson, who lists offers from Miami, FIU and South Carolina, says "I'm pretty sure right now I'm going to commit to Miami. Something would really have to happen to change my mind. I'm pretty much 100 percent certain I will commit.

"I'm going to do it later on, not right now. Miami's always been my dream school. I grew up wanting to be a Hurricane, and my whole mom's side of the family likes Miami."

Jackson also lists early offers from South Carolina and FIU.

He attended UM's home games against Virginia and Oklahoma as an invited recruit this year.

"Coaches were just talking to me about early enrollment, where I would be on the depth chart - they think I'll be a guard," Jackson said.

Jackson says he's "pretty sure" he can arrive at UM in Jan., 2011.

"I have the classes lined up right now to do it," he said.

He says he's getting regular UM recruiting mail "talking about the school stats, history - they send me handwritten letters wishing me good luck."

Jackson has a coach on his team Cane fans will recognize - former UM star defensive lineman Kenny Holmes. Holmes' son, Deion, is a 5-foot-10, 185-pound outside linebacker on the team.

"He coaches the D line, is the defensive coordinator," Jackson said. "He knows I like Miami a lot."

Jackson's coach, Gary Coggin, says UM would get quite a pickup in the 6-foot-4, 285-pounder.

"He started playing for us as a sophomore, and I've seen him develop as an athlete from one year to the next," Coggin said. "He's a legit left tackle for any passing attack. He's got everything it takes - size, good footwork, great hands, long arms, and he moves his feet well in pass protection and does a good job run blocking as well."

Amidst Rumors, Chandler Calls UM
Dec. 5, 2009

By: Christopher Stock





Todd Chandler
There is a lot of buzz out there about the status of Todd Chandler.

Is he de-committing? Did UM pull the offer? Did UM even offer?

Chandler, the fourth-ranked defensive tackle in the country according to ESPN, who verbally committed to Miami November 2008, just got off the phone with Miami a.ssistant coach Wesley McGriff to get the story straight.

“I started hearing stuff and people were calling me asking me if I de-commit or if UM pulled their offer, I was like, no that’s not true,” said the Northwestern star. “I called Miami just in case to tell them I wasn’t going to de-commit and they’ve known I’m going to take my visits. McGriff said everything is good. I felt real comfortable with what he had to say.”

Chandler started hearing the chatter and decided to call McGriff on Saturday afternoon.

"I talked to Coach McGriff because people were saying that I'm a de-commit or UM was going to pull their offer, but I don’t even know how that started,” Chandler said.

Chandler has his first official visit set up next week at Colorado State on December 11.

He says he also plans on taking an official visit to LSU, Tennessee, North Carolina, and FIU as their respective staffs have been talking with Chandler throughout the recruiting process.

“Right now I’m really trying to focus on college,” said Chandler, who still plans on graduating early.

Chandler’s Bulls saw their season end in disappointment last week with a loss to rival Miami Central as finishing 10-2 on the season.

“The season went pretty good, but it didn’t the way we wanted,” Chandler said. “We were supposed to go to state, but we lost to Central. They were more hungry than us and a lot of our players didn’t play as best as they could, that’s all I’m going to say.”

Bridgewater Decides Future Position
Dec. 7, 2009

By: Nate Adelson





Teddy Bridgewater
For those who have watched star Northwestern junior Teddy Bridgewater play, the main debate revolves around his future position.

Is he a quarterback or is he a wide receiver? Which does he prefer and where does he have more potential?

Even Bridgewater (6-2, 173) himself has waffled back and forth about those questions in the past, but recently he made a decision which he considers definitive.

“Right now, I’m staying at quarterback and I don’t see that changing no time soon,” Bridgewater said. “I hope that doesn’t change anything with recruiting because I was talking to my coach on Friday. We decided, well I decided that quarterback was where I would be. I’m not changing my position for next season or the next level.”

Bridgewater realizes that his junior year is what a lot of schools will base their recruitment of him off of. He’s disappointed that he wasn’t able to win a state title but he’s still able to keep it all in perspective.

“It was a good year for me, I learned a lot but I made a lot of mistakes,” Bridgewater said. “Therefore, it was a good year because it’s better to make the mistakes now rather than later. I was really coached well this year too and it’s not only about winning state championships. If you look at Peyton Manning, he was very successful before he won his first superbowl. I strive to win a state championship and it’s very important but it’s just not everything.”

Bridgewater had a really big year completing 165 of 262 passes for 2546 yards and 32 touchdowns with 12 interceptions, along with 94 carries for 358 yards and 5 touchdowns.

His season was really a tale of two halves though. The first six games, he completed 53% (89-168) of his passes and threw 10 interceptions. The last six games, he completed over 80% (76-94) of his passes and threw just two interceptions.

“Earlier in the season, I wasn’t dropping back when I got the ball from the center,” Bridgewater said. “Therefore, I was having too much time in the pocket and that messed up the timing with my receivers. When Coach Rolle told me that, that’s when I started dropping back and fixing the timing again. That’s why those interceptions happened.

Bridgewater received his first five offers right around September 1st in Miami, Florida, Tennessee, West Virginia, and FIU. He has only added Rutgers since that time, but explained why that’s somewhat on him.

“I haven’t done a lot with recruiting because I haven’t really been talking to coaches,” Bridgewater said. “I was more focused on my season but now that it’s over, I can focus more on college. I don’t expect too much from college coaches when I talk to them because I just want know they’re going to be there all four years with me.”

Bridgewater said that Miami had a great season in 2009, and he was most impressed with how they spread the ball around instead of relying on one player to carry the team.

“Well Miami had a great season and it was a big turnaround so I like what I saw,” Bridgewater said. “What stood out to me was that they used a lot of different players. They didn’t have just one impact player or like last season, they depended on such and such player. This year they depended on the whole team and Coach Whipple did a lot with Jacory (Harris).”

Bridgewater maintains that he has “no favorites or top schools” at this point in time and Miami stands the same chance with him as any other college that is recruiting him.
