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.

Whipple announcement expected soon

Mark Whipple answered his phone Saturday night in Philadelphia and told our Barry Jackson he was deciding whether or not he would take the vacant offensive coordinator position offered to him by coach Randy Shannon. He even joked that in a week he'd either be in Miami or still with the Eagles staff coaching the NFC All-Stars in Hawaii.

Mark Whipple All signs are pointing that Whipple has chosen Miami. Sunday night, when our Susan Miller Degnan called the Whipple home, his wife Brenda answered the phone. She said her husband was not there and would be unavailable. When asked if her husband had accepted the coordinator position at UM and was on his way to Miami, she politely said: "I think it would be up to them to give you that information. I really couldn't."

When reached by phone Sunday night, the University of Miami sports information department would not confirm if Whipple had been hired. But a staff member I spoke to said the hiring was imminent. "There's a only slight chance it won't happen," the source said.

That slight chance is likely passing a mandatory drug test and meetings with President Donna Shalala and athletic director Kirby Hocutt. Whipple told The Miami Herald Saturday he had discussed the possibility of replacing Eagles quarterbacks coach Pat Shurmur with head coach Andy Reid. Reports out of Philadelphia and ESPN tonight said it looked like Whipple had already told the Eagles he was leaving the team to return to college. A representative with the Eagles late Sunday night could not be reached for comment.

Whipple spent 13 seasons as a head coach at the collegiate level at New Haven, Brown and UMass, where he won a I-AA national title in 1998 before moving onto the NFL for four seasons. He coached Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh to a Super Bowl title and spent this past season with the Eagles.

Canes pick up 19th commitment

BANKUNITED CENTER -- I'm here at the BUC for today's showdown with the Hokies. I've come to realize the courtside blogs don't get much attention. So, I've decided to abandon them until we get into some bigger games later in the year (I'll try to keep up with Beyond The Boxscore blogs for you hoop fans for now).

Let's get to the football news. For those of you who missed it, Barry Jackson reached the Canes' leading cadidate to fill the offensive coordinator position, Mark Whipple. UM is waiting to see if Whipple will take the job. If not, the search will continue. I'm not going to speculate on any other names until Whipple officially declines.

Shayon Green As for immediate news, the first of two big recruiting weekends ended earlier this morning. Miami was able to pick up one new commitment from the group of eight visitors, linebacker/defensive end Shayon Green from Tift County, Ga. I caught up with Shayon when I got to the arena to ask him what happened over the weekend to make him switch his commitment from Purdue to the Canes.

"It was just a great visit. I saw it with my family and from the moment I got there I knew I wanted to be a Cane," Green said. "I had come here last year and stopped by and I liked it then. But after I talked with Coach Shannon, he made me realize this was the place I needed to be. I'm excited."

Green said he was hosted by linebacker Darryl Sharpton and said he spent a lot of time with Sean Spence during his visit. But he said the special relationship which helped UM sway him from Purdue and the other 15 offers he received during recruiting was his relationship with fellow Tifton County native Wesley McGriff, UM's secondary coach. The fact his grandparents lived in Homestead also helped.

Green said Miami coaches told him he'd likely start out at linebacker when he gets to UM in the summer. But he could play anywhere. At 6-3, 225 pounds with 4.67 speed, his high school coach played him at defensive tackle, defensive end and linebacker during his three seasons on the varsity level. As a senior playing mostly at linebacker, Green tallied 67 solo tackles, 48 a.ssisted tackles, eight tackles for loss, one sack and one caused fumble.

"He's got a pretty good knack of getting off really well on the snap," his coach Jay Walls told me before the visit on Thursday. "I think you'll see him play [weakside] linebacker or defensive end. He's going to get bigger too. He'll probably get close to 250 pounds. We've got a real good weight program here already. He power cleans over 300 pounds and benches over 300 pounds and squats about 600. He's a good one."

> The other non-commitments UM hosted this weekend included linebacker Sam Barrington and offensive lineman Malcolm Bunche and Marcus Hall. I'm going to try and reach them or their coaches sometime this week. I know Barrington is expected to announce his decision Feb. 3.

Good news coming in Bunches

There's been a long stretch recently where every bit of Canes news coming out of Coral Gables has been causing fans to feel like reaching for Rolaids or Pepto Bismo. What started in about the second quarter of the Georgia Tech game, intensified with the firing for Patrick Nix, the troubled transfer of starting quarterback Robert Marve and reached its peak with last week's news that defensive coordinator Bill Young was leaving for Oklahoma State.

It looks like the stomach ache might be coming to an end. Monday afternoon, UM finalized its courtship with new offensive coordinator Mark Whipple. Then, in the evening, the Canes got more good news when they picked up an important recruiting commitment from a big-time player, 6-6, 322-pound offensive tackle Malcolm Bunche. Here's the best news: it may only be the beginning of a good Canes run.

With National Signing Day around the corner, the Hurricanes now look like they are on pace to sign another Top 10 class -- one that will likely still include the nation's No. 1 recruit after today's news. When East Wichita running back Bryce Brown recently reaffirmed his commitment to Miami, he mentioned he would be looking for two things -- good news on the coordinator front and good news among potential offensive line recruits. UM got both Monday.

> I'll have a more in-depth blog for you late tonight on Bunche. I spoke at length with his mother and his high school coach and have some good stuff to share. I also plan on being at Whipple's press conference tomorrow to give you the scoop from there.

MIAMI, Fla. -- Monsignor Pace defensive back Kayvon Webster just got back from his official visit to Miami.

Webster, our fifth-ranked prospect in Miami-Dade County, verbally committed to Miami in September.

He took an official visit to South Florida last weekend and surprisingly had a good visit to Miami this past weekend.

"It was cool, it was alright," Webster said. "I'm from down here so I didn't really expect nothing."

Webster said there was something that stood out to him that surprised him about the visit.

"It was the players," Webster said. "They made me feel like i was family already. That's the part that I liked."

Senior safety Randy Phillips, from Belle Glade, was Webster's host.

"He's a smart guy and a laid-back person," Webster said. "I didn't know him before. I used to just say 'what's up to him. But he's just like me."

Miami head coach Randy Shannon talked with Webster earlier Sunday morning about a variety of topics including how they want Webster to play cornerback and the latest with the defensive coordinator situation.

"(Shannon) talked about the defensive coordinator," Webster said. "He said it might be him, but he didn't know for sure."

If Shannon were to a.ssume the defensive coordinator responsibilities, that would be fine by Webster.

"I like Coach Shannon's defense," Webster said. "He plays that hard core defense."

Webster says he is not taking any more visits and will announce his final decision on signing day.

"I am still committed to Miami," Webster said. "I still like Miami, but I like South Florida too."

During his senior year at Monsignor Pace, he caught 38 passes for 484 yards and five touchdowns on offense while playing defense as well.

Other Recruits

Webster was one of eight recruits on campus this weekend. Other recruits on campus included Ohio offensive lineman Marcus Hall.

"I think he's going to go ahead and commit this week," Hall said. "He had a good time. I think he liked it."

Webster didn't spend much time talking with other recruits, mainly spent his time with Phillips. However, he did say he talked with A.J. Highsmith and Jared Wheeler, both UM commits.

ESPN Evaluation: Webster is the entire package when it comes to versatility in a football player. He has good size and actually plays bigger than his recorded dimensions. Impressive as a wide receiver, safety and return specialist. This guy has very good speed and a real burst when returning kicks and after making receptions. As a wide out he displays soft hands when going up for the football and makes tough catches seem easy. Can reach back to snag underthrown passes or turn his body to make a reception if he ball is thrown over the wrong shoulder. Demonstrates the ability to catch the ball in a crowd and keeps tremendous concentration on the football. Makes the ever important yards after the reception and is always a threat to take it to the house once he hauls it in. On defense shows he can be physical. Comes up from the safety position quickly on run support and short passes to the middle hook zones. Brings legs when making the tackle and drives through the ball carrier or receiver. Possesses excellent flexibility in the hips and can change direction fluidly. Has the speed to catch a play from behind and to flush the quarterback out of the pocket when on the blitz. As a return specialist is indeed special. Heads north and south immediately with the ability to make cuts on the run without slowing down. Reads his blocks well and has the ability to see past the first would-be tackler to anticipate his next cut in the openfield. Webster is one of those athletes that should play early at the next level because of his many and various talents. The toughest part for the coach will be to determine what position to put him.

After all the talk about playing a different position, the University of Miami is truly looking at A.J. Highsmith as a quarterback. At least, that is the impression he's received from coaches on his visit this weekend to Coral Gables.

Toured around the campus by current starting quarterback Jacory Harris, Highsmith said he enjoyed himself even more than he expected and while, if he is to play quarterback and be Harris' backup, Highsmith will be in the same boat with Harris.

"Yeah we talked about some stuff (on the offense), but he's always referring back to that we almost at the same point because he's going to have to learn new stuff too when the new offensive coordinator comes in just like I am," Highsmith said.

Highsmith talked to Shannon Sunday morning, but spent a good part of the time talking to coach Tommie Robinson since the team currently doesn't have a quarterbacks coach either.

"Since we don't have a quarterback coach, coach Robinson was talking to me about playing quarterback and coverages and everything," High smith said.

The team is still without an offensive coordinator and while Highsmith wasn't' given any indication as to who the next OC would be, he feels comfortable with whatever decision is made.

"I know that coach Shannon wants to run the pro-style offense and he's shown the aggressiveness to get a guy who he wants and knows, so I trust him to bring in the right guy," Highsmith said.

Highsmith confirmed that quarterback is the position he's coming to Miami as.

"Yeah, I am going to play quarterback. I mean from my knowledge they were looking at me at quarterback the whole time, but once I got there, they gave me that feeling too," Highsmith said.

All in all Highsmith got a good feel for the city of Miami, the campus and the team, and had a much better time on his visit than he expected.

"It was fun. We had a lot of fun together and he's (Harris) a real nice guy. I knew it was going to be fun, but I had a lot more fun than I expected because I hadn't really experienced stuff like that before," Highsmith said.

He also had a chance to spend time with some other players.

"Yeah, there were a lot of guys, we went out to dinner and stuff, Javarris James and Graig Cooper, Randy Phillips and Sean Spence, there were a lot of guys out there with us," Highsmith said. "We were around South Beach, but we didn't go to the beach."

Most importantly though, Highsmith feels like the players have responded well to the changes that are going on inside of the program over the past few weeks.

"I think they are really optimistic about it. I felt like at times they felt there needed to be change in certain positions. There is a winning sense of urgency down here right now," Highsmith said.

After visiting Miami this weekend Tifton, Georgia linebacker Shayon Green committed to the Hurricanes.

Green said the main reason he wanted to commit was because he felt comfortable on the campus.

He was originally committed to Purdue.

"I started looking around the campus and I decided that was the place I wanted to go to school for the next four years," Green said. "Everything was beautiful and I just felt real comfortable in that environment."

Green's family traveled with him for his visit to Coral Gables and once they gave him their blessing that it would be ok to go to Miami, he made his commitment official.

"My family was a big deciding factor," Green said. "They really liked it. They liked it a whole lot. They were just telling me that this was the place for me and this was the place where I could be the best."

Green didn't start getting recruited by Miami until mid-December when defensive backs coach Wesley McGriff stopped by and was impressed. Green (6-2, 235) played linebacker as a senior and totaled 120 tackles and two sacks. He runs a 4.6 in the 40.

Miami is recruiting Green to be a linebacker at the college level.

"One of the main reasons I liked Miami over Purdue was because of their linebacker coach, Micheal Barrow," Green said. "I know he has played in the NFL and he can be a great teacher to me and help me get to the next level."

Green said he felt very comfortable around coach Randy Shannon and that he knows he has the Miami football program heading in the right direction.

"When coach Shannon speaks, you listen and you know he is going to get the Miami program going in the right direction," Green said. "I have full confidence that Miami will be back to where they want to be soon."

ESPN Evaluation: Green is a bit lacking in ideal height, but comes across on film as a fairly well built kid. He is active and gets around the football. He will move around the defensive line in high school, but will need to be more strictly a defensive end at the college level. He has a solid get-off, but needs to work to be more consistent in that area. Will flash the ability to fire off the ball low, but you would like to see that more. Green is a kid that will battle and f!ght to get to the ball. Does a solid job of playing half-a-man and that will help allow him to get off blocks. He needs to watch his pad level as he tends to play high. Also he needs to work on shooting his hands more and creating separation. Looks to deliver a blow and will lead shoulder first and allow blockers to get into him. With his high pad level he can be pushed off the ball some. Stays active though and can be tough to keep blocked. Displays solid straight line speed. He is a good wrap-up tackler. Can seem a little rigid on the move. As a pass rusher he will try and work to the shoulder and clear with a move. Needs to keep working to develop pass rush moves. Green is a solid prospect. He needs to keep working to clean some things up technique wise, but plays hard and displays the ability to give some production.

One of the main questions Jacksonville linebacker Sam Barrington had going into his Miami visit this weekend was what his role on the team would be.

Well after the weekend, Barrington said all his questions were answered and he liked what he learned about UM.

"I learned they are not deep at my position and that is a good thing," Barrington said. "I knew about the tradition and now I have learned more about that tradition. Miami is a place that has a lot of greatness go through the halls and it would be special to be a part of that."

"All of my questions were answered. They are not bringing me in to redshirt, they are bringing me into play which is a very good thing. That is very important going into my decision."

Barrington's host for the weekend was freshman linebacker Sean Spence. According to Barrington, Spence was a great host and made him feel very comfortable at Miami.

"He was a real cool person," Barrington said. "He was down to earth and was straight up with me. Any questions I had, he answered them honestly and I feel like he is a good teammate who all the players respect."

After looking back at the visit, Barrington said his favorite part of the trip was spending time with the UM coaching staff.

"Spending time with the coaches in general was really nice," Barrington said. "Everything came together very nicely and I felt at home with the coaches and players. All the people around the program seem like good people."

Barrington said it "would be very nice" to play for a linebacker coach of Micheal Barrow's credentials. The chance to learn from a coach like Barrow, who played in the NFL for over a decade is very appealing.

"That would be real nice and the one thing about it is he knows his stuff," Barrington said. "He played in the NFL for a long time so with the chance to learn from one of the greats, that would be a great situation to be in."

Barrington didn't get a personal one-on-one time with coach Randy Shannon, but he expects to talk with him over the phone at some point tonight.

"I did spend a lot of time with coach Shannon throughout the weekend, but we didn't get a personal meet today, but he will call me tonight and we will talk," Barrington said.

"He is another one of those persons where I know he is not going to let me fail and I know it will be cool to play for him," Barrington said of Shannon. "He has played in the NFL, so he knows his stuff and he seems like a really good coach. He seems like the type of coach who will stick with his players no matter what."

So where does Miami currently stand in Barrington's recruitment?

"I would say they are tied with South Florida and Illinois."

Barrington says he expects to make an announcement on his college choice on February 3rd.

When asked about the defensive coordinator situation, Barrington said, "I really don't know about the defensive coordinator situation right now."

Cleveland (Ohio) Glenville offensive lineman Marcus Hall made an official visit to Miami this weekend, and unless something changes, he is done with his trips.

Bucknuts.com caught up with Hall as he was waiting in the Miami airport for his flight home.

"The visit was really good," Hall said. "I liked the weather of course. They don't have all that snow. And the campus is real nice. And I got to meet the rest of the coaching staff. They took us to a lot of nice places and we got a chance to walk the beach. I felt comfortable there."

Hall visited Ohio State, Michigan and the Hurricanes, and has decided he probably won't make an official visit to Tennessee next weekend.

"I'm still in the process of making that decision," Hall said. "But I don't think I'll visit there. It's coming down to Ohio State and Miami, I'm pretty sure."

Of course the Hurricanes would have loved to have landed a commitment from Hall before he left their campus.

"I didn't want to make a decision while I was there," Hall said. "Miami was making it hard to say no. But I want to go home and talk to my parents."

Hall will next get a home visit from Jim Tressel on Wednesday and Randy Shannon on Thurdsday.

"I'll probably wait until after Thursday to decide," Hall said. "I'll decide sometime between Thursday and signing day. I won't wait until after signing day."

The 6-foot-6 and 300-pound Hall is the top prospect in the state of Ohio that has not selected a college.

Delaware offensive lineman Malcolm Bunche wanted to use his official visit to Miami this weekend as a learning experience.

Bunche wanted to take the time to learn more about the coaching styles of offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland and head coach Randy Shannon.

According to Bunche, he was impressed by what he learned about those two UM coaches during his visit.

"When I was in the meeting with coach Stoutland, he was talking about what his philosophy is and how he coaches," Bunche said. "He wants to coach a run blocking and pass-blocking scheme. We talked about some of the things he likes to do on pass blocking and how he calls plays on the line. He is a very energetic man."

"Everybody on and around that staff is organized and very intelligent. Down from the head coach to the athletic trainer. They know what they are talking about and they know how to put things into perspective. Once I get there I know I will be organized."

Following his visit to Miami, Bunche claims he doesn't have any favorites. He currently lists a top three of Miami, Rutgers, and Maryland. At this point, he plans to make an announcement on Signing Day.

"Right now I am gathering all the info about the schools and talking with my family and basing my decision on what they think," Bunche said.

For his official visit, Bunche brought his father, mother, two sisters, and uncle with him down to Miami. According to Bunche, a large portion of his family was all about Miami during the visit.

"My dad, he likes Miami, but all my other relatives though are Miami fanatics," Bunche said. "They were trying to all pushing me to Miami and telling me the positives. My dad is more of a guide though. He gives his input of each school. He doesn't push me to any school and he tells me what he thinks about each school. He says Malcolm, you can't go wrong with this school. You are going to get you degree there. You are going to succeed in football and the head coach is an intelligent guy. He is going to mold you into a better."

Offensive lineman Orlando Franklin was Bunche's host during his visit to Miami. Bunche says that Franklin showed him a very good time.

"For one of the dinners, we ate right beside the water, which was extravagant," Bunche said. "It was very calming and relaxing. It was a great place to eat and talk with good folk. It was very peaceful, but once you get on the streets it is a lot of fun. Miami is a very fun place."

"All the players are really cool guys. They are very intelligent young men. They like to have fun, but they get down to business. They have a great football IQ and they are all upbeat and cool."
