Two Miami Hurricanes quarterbacks to transfer schools


In a double whammy for the University of Miami Hurricanes football team, two of its four quarterbacks are transferring.

Taylor Cook told The Miami Herald Tuesday morning he is leaving the Hurricanes.

Cannon Smith's father, Fred Smith, also told The Miami Herald Tuesday morning his son has received his release from UM, is packing his bags, and will soon be back home in Memphis to find another school at which to play.

The new UM backup quarterback: true freshman A.J. Highsmith, the son of former UM great Alonzo Highsmith.

``Yes, Ma'am, it's true,'' said 6-7, 235-pound redshirt freshman Taylor Cook, who was named the backup to Jacory Harris after spring football. UM coach Randy Shannon told reporters Monday, however, that all three backups were still battling for the No. 2 spot.

Cook is from the tiny farming town of Eagle Lake, Texas.

``I'm just going back home to play some football,'' Cook told The Miami Herald. ``If I go to a Division I-AA school, I can play right away. If I go to another Division IA school, I have to sit out another two semesters.

``Yes, I got my release. I made a decision and I'm sticking with it.''

Cannon Smith's father is the founder of FedEx. He also confirmed that Cannon received a medical redshirt for last season for a stress fracture in his leg, and is now classified as a redshirt freshman.

linebacker, and the ACC certainly has a few of those worth looking at.

Here are the other conference players who were recognized:

* Bruce Carter, UNC
* Kavell Conner, Clemson
* Daryl Sharpton, Miami
* Sean Spence, Miami

* Quan Sturdivant, UNC
* Dekoda Watson, FSU
plus add McCarthy

Like the future looks brighly bright with jimbo fisher as your next coach.


Smith wasn't gonna get any play time here, so i really don't care if he left.

But Cook? this n*gga knew he couldn't step up to Jacory's level in the next 3 year so he decided to bolt.

That tells you right there we have a FRANCHISE quarterback for the next 3 years fellas !!!!!!!!!!

This football dynasty was built upon the principles of hard work and competition. Obviously, neither of these two cats had that. Maryland, Sapp, and other greats always said that a starter could lose his spot if he took a water break. Heck, Reggie Wayne got benched for Santana Moss after he got injured for a couple of games and never came back after that to be the #1 WR on the team.


Let's get Bridgewater and supposedly Godfrey already committed to us.

"I have appreciated the efforts and attitude of both young men while here at the University of Miami," UM head coach Randy Shannon said. "I respect their decisions and wish them success both as students and on the football field."
Taylor Cook Statement:
It was a hard decision for me to leave the program. I enjoyed my time at Miami, and I'm going to miss it. I feel bad leaving my teammates, but it's a move I had to make. I have the utmost respect for Coach Shannon and Coach [Mark] Whipple, and I wish them the best of the luck. I've just decided to focus on football somewhere else.

Cannon Smith Statement:
I'm very thankful for the opportunity to have been a part of this program. I am so grateful to Coach Shannon for giving me the opportunity to have been part of this team. Everything here was handled with a lot of class. I got to compete and that's what I wanted. The hardest thing is going to be leaving my teammates. I love all those guys, and I'm going to miss them all. I'll definitely be rooting for them. After evaluating everything, I felt I had to do what was in my best interest.


these comments make these muthaf**kas look like the writing was on the wall....


they saw that they didnt have a chance against jacory and AJ HighSmith was getting more reps with the 2nd team

A.J. Highsmith is ready for the fall semester.

There are all those nice people at the University of Miami to help the Hurricanes' newest quarterback choose classes. There's Dad, former UM football great Alonzo Highsmith, to help him traverse the football part. There's Mom, fellow UM graduate Denise Highsmith, to help him traverse everything else.

And there's ``Mamoo,'' grandmother Yvonne Chong, who has worked in the UM bookstore for 28 years and has three children with UM degrees.

Her job, besides the bookkeeping one: to be grandma.

``I got A.J. a UM comforter for his dorm room,'' Chong said. ``It's green and has a big green-and-orange U. It came with fitted and flat sheets, and a sham. He was happy. He wants it on his bed.''

To say, as A.J. Highsmith acknowledged this week, that he was ``born into'' his proudest role -- being a Hurricane -- is like saying the Hurricanes yearn for a sixth national title. Alonzo Sr., a Green Bay Packers scout who played fullback for the Canes from 1983 through 1986, said he pushed his only son to check out schools such as Texas A&M and Oklahoma State because he knew A.J. would be crushed if the Hurricanes didn't want him.

They wanted him.

A.J., short for Alonzo Junior (his middle name is Paul, after the father of former UM baseball a.ssistant coach Gino DiMare), is a 6-0, 195-pound dual-threat quarterback rated as the 24th-best high school quarterback by ESPN. Scout.com had him at No. 47, and Rivals.com ranked him 87th. As a senior at Hightower High School in Fort Bend, Texas, Highsmith threw for 2,192 yards and 28 touchdowns, with four interceptions. He ran for 360 yards and seven touchdowns in helping lead his team to a 13-1 record and an appearance in the Class 5A state title game.

``I've been waiting for this my whole life,'' Highsmith said. ``I had my mind set from the beginning. I didn't care who was here. I wanted to come to Miami. I knew that it would be a rough job to get to the top, but I'm willing to take the time.''

UM coach Randy Shannon called Highsmith ``a better athlete'' than his father. He said he has no intention of moving Highsmith to safety, a position he played sparingly four years ago. ``When you recruit a quarterback, you look at how he carries a football team . . . the maturity factor, and you go on how smart he was,'' Shannon said. ``You watch him as he was growing up. I have. The guy knows how to win.''

Proud papa, a 6-1, 230-pound bruiser who played six seasons in the NFL, agreed: ``I was just a bull in a china shop. He's a thinker.''

Offensive coordinator Mark Whipple said he's excited to have Highsmith, now behind starter Jacory Harris and backups Taylor Cook and Cannon Smith. ``He's a good athlete,'' Whipple said. ``We're just throwing the whole playbook at him right now, and he's doing a really good job.

``He has really good leadership skills. I love the way he works, and I think that all comes back to his parents.''

Alonzo Sr., 44, met Denise at UM. He graduated from Miami Columbus High. She graduated from Miami k!llian. The way his folks describe it, A.J. was born in 1991 wearing UM gear. In one photo at six months, he's wearing a UM cap, orange UM shorts and a T-shirt that reads, ``I'm tough Enough To Be a Hurricane.''

Highsmith grew up in Missouri City, just outside of Houston. His bedroom in Texas is marked by a replica street sign, ``Miami Hurricane Alley.'' A replica jersey of late former UM safety Sean Taylor hangs in his bedroom. He got to know and work out with Taylor, Andre Johnson, Clinton Portis, Ed Reed and other Canes when he moved to Miami with his mother and sister, Jordan, from August 2002 until December 2003. Denise's father was gravely ill, and the three of them came to help take care of him while Alonzo Sr. stayed home to work.

Highsmith became close friends with the son of former UM receivers coach Curtis Johnson, and UM's receivers would come to their Pop Warner games at the Kendall Boys and Girls Club.

``This whole experience has been so exciting for my family,'' said Denise, who brought 15-year-old sister Jordan -- she calls A.J. her best friend -- to visit him before they both start school again.

Alonzo Sr. said he ``knew deep in his heart that Miami was the only school A.J. ever wanted to attend,'' and that he's happy and relieved he realized his dream.

Cornerback Ryan Hill sees that happiness reflected every day. Highsmith sits next to him in the locker room.

``Great kid. He's always smiling,'' Hill said. ``I'll ask him, `What are you smiling for?' He says, `I don't know.' He loves it here, and he's just soaking it in right now.''

Hill said the two talked earlier this week about A.J. having so many players ahead of him on the depth chart. ``He said it's motivation for him,'' Hill said. ``Some guys at other universities may say, `OK, the coaches don't like me because they're making me go longer, they're making me go harder.' He knows they're trying to make you better.''

Highsmith wears No. 19, the number he was a.ssigned. Alonzo Sr. wore No. 30, which belongs to fullback Patrick Hill.

He said Harris is helping him ``with pretty much everything -- the run steps, play pass, progressions, reads, he just keeps on top of me and explains little things to me during meetings. He's like an older brother.''

His dad's best advice? ``Have fun,'' he said. ``It gets draining at times.''

Highsmith said he relishes the bond that UM players share. ``When you come here, you understand the love and passion everybody has for the game,'' he said. ``It's a team thing. I didn't expect to come here and just move guys out of the way. I mean, you have to compete. I have no problem with starting from the bottom and working my way up. I'm just going to work hard and keep doing what I've been doing.''

QB Morris Reacts to Transfers
Aug. 26, 2009

By: Nate Adelson





Stephen Morris
It wasn’t even a month ago that Monsignor Pace quarterback Stephen Morris decided to put a cap on his recruitment and commit to the hometown Hurricanes.

The people surrounding Morris (6-2, 195) keep him up to date on the latest news, as his phone was blowing up all day with people telling him that two quarterbacks just decided to part ways with Miami.

“I actually found out today after school,” Morris laughed. “I was in class and everyone was texting me and calling me to ask me what was happening with Miami. I told them I didn’t know what was going on and I asked them what they were talking about. Finally, I talked to a couple of my coaches and they said two guys transferred out.”

Morris was initially excited when he heard the news, but then he reminded himself why he committed to Miami in the first place.

“At first, I thought spots were going to be wide open and I was kind of happy,” Morris said. “Then I thought about the long run, and it means that Miami might or might not be recruiting other people at the position. At the same time, I realized I have to handle my end anyway and competition is something that you have to have.”

Morris went on to explained that today’s news has no real effect on his commitment because he made his decision when Miami already had four quarterbacks in the fold.

“I’m still good with everything because I made that decision with those two quarterbacks already in place,” Morris said. “I had my mind made up that I was going to compete for the job and learn from Jacory. I think this happened probably for the better for me because I’m only competing with two other guys instead of three or four.”

Morris isn’t really worried about the recent defections at quarterback but he understands why they did make their decision to leave.

“I talked to a couple coaches and they were just saying it was their choice and they weren’t really getting time in,” Morris said. “Every football player wants to play and if you don’t have that chance, then thoughts go through your head about transferring. That’s not just at Miami, that’s every football player everywhere and that doesn’t effect me at all.”

Morris has heard all about the offense from Coach Whipple, and now he just wants to see everything in action on the field in 2009.

“I want to see how their offense is rolling really,” Morris said. “I talk to Coach Whipple a lot and he tells me they’re having great practices, but he doesn’t lie to me because he said the defense gets up in them sometimes. He’s been saying the offense is looking pretty good and I want to see them play to the best of their abilities. I’ll get a look at everything with Jacory and then even with AJ as the backup.”

Morris had a chance in the spring to sit in on a meeting between Coach Whipple and current starter Jacory Harris.

“I watched film with Coach Whipple and Jacory in the spring and we were all talking things over,” Morris said. “Coach Whipple and him were discussing the offense and he looked like he understood what the coaches wanted him to do. Coach Whipple is a great coach and with great coaching, you’re going to have great players.”

At the moment, Morris is focused on his senior year as the Spartans take on Cypress Bay in a kickoff classic matchup this Thursday.

“I’m just trying to get my team to state and then win it,” Morris. “It hurt getting so far last year and then getting absolutely nothing for doing it. Our team needs to go to the next level to get a ring for all the seniors and juniors who didn’t get one last year. I want to be the best leader I can possibly be and live up to my potential at quarterback.”

Morris would love to graduate early to enroll at Miami in January, but it’s just something that is not allowed at Monsignor Pace.

“You know what, I really do wish I could do that but Pace doesn’t allow you to do that,” Morris said. “Pace has never allowed student athletes to do that because there are certain classes that you are required to take at Pace. I think they do that on purpose so everybody stays until the end so I wish I could but I can’t. In the spring, I’ll be attending almost every team meeting and I’ll be watching practices. Of course I won’t be able to participate yet, but I’ll be able to be there every day, understand things, and talk to the coaches.”
