OL Bobby Hart
June 9, 2010

Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas OL Bobby Hart says the Canes are running out of time.

He hopes to have a top 10 in place in the next couple of weeks, and if Miami hasn't offered by then he says he will no longer consider UM.

"I talked to coach (Jeff) Stoutland a couple of weeks ago," Hart said. "He asked if I was still interested in them, and I said `I don't know.'

"I don't even have an offer from them. The last mail they sent me was congratulating me on being in the Army (all star) game."

He lists 50 total offers - "Miami and Texas are the only big schools that haven't offered," he said.

Hart, who grew up a Hurricane fan, says if Miami had offered early "they'd be in really good shape."

Hart says he's surprised the Canes haven't offered.

"I don't know why," he said. "I was disappointed at first, but not anymore."

Now Hart says he plans to cut things down to a top 10 in the next couple of weeks. If Miami hasn't offered by then he says they won't be in there and that "Once I have my top 10 I'm not changing it."

If the Canes do offer by then Hart says "they may be in the top 10."

Outlook For Jeremy Davis? Not That Good!


Hurricane signee Jeremy Davis knows he has the ability to make a big impact as a Hurricane.

But his focus right now is on simply becoming a Cane.

He's still working on sorting out his academic situation.

"I'm doing classes on line to switch out bad grades," Davis said. "I don't have to replace too many - I've done two or three already. Now I'm waiting for the year to end, then will send in my transcripts."

He hopes the NCAA Clearinghouse will put him through, but he won't find that out for a while - Davis' school doesn't wrap up until the middle of his month. He'll send in his final grades and then hope for the best.

"I think it's a pretty good chance I'll be okay," he says.

In the meantime, Davis is preparing as though he'll be on campus.

"The most important thing is you go from high school to college, you have to get ready for better competition," he said. "It's mental and physical."

The physical part is going well so far - he's gained 10 pounds from his playing weight of last season, currently weighing in at 178 pounds.

"I feel like my speed is better," Davis said. "I'd hurt my hamstring, but now it's healed and I feel I'm faster. I rested it for 3-4 weeks and started back running a few weeks ago and it wasn't hurting anymore."

Davis has been in contact with coach Wesley McGriff.

"He says that he can't wait for me to get there, get there and get to work," Davis said.

Davis says his understanding is he'll start off at cornerback and as a return man.

"They said with my speed they want to get the ball in my hands as much as they can," Davis said. "They also said they may get me in on offense."

Davis says he talks with a few of his fellow signees as well - he's been in touch with Kevin Nelson, Clive Walford and Darion Hall.

"We talk about the Ohio State game, we're all pretty much ready for it," Davis said. "We're going to bring them down - they cheated us in 2003 so it's time for payback now. We talk about it all the time."

UM Leads for WR Dorsett after Visit

June 11, 2010

St. Thomas Aquinas wide receiver Phillip Dorsett had hoped to attend the Randy Shannon Summer Camp which begins today.

Dorsett (5-9, 167) knew he wouldn’t be attending the camp, but he still wanted to make an appearance, so he decided to head down to Coral Gables for an unofficial visit on Thursday instead.

“I visited because I just wanted to get a good feel for the campus and all the coaches,” Dorsett said. “I had only been there once so far so I thought I should go again. I got to talk to the coaches, the academic advisors, the athletic trainer, and tour the campus.”

Dorsett spent the most time talking to Coach Hill, who is his primary recruiter, and he talked a little bit about the relationship they have.

“I spent the most time talking to Coach Hill and we just sat down to talk about everything,” Dorsett said. “He talked about the depth chart because a lot of the receivers are leaving by time I would be there. I think I could play pretty early at Miami. I talk to him a lot and he’s a pretty straight forward guy. He won’t lie, he’ll tell you how it is, and he’ll tell you about the other guys he is recruiting.”

Dorsett doesn’t personally know Teddy Bridgewater, but his recent commitment is a major plus in Dorsett’s eyes.

“I know they just got a quarterback commitment from Teddy so it would be great for me to go there and play with him,” Dorsett said. “That stuck out to me because I didn’t know if they were going to get a quarterback at first. Now that they got him, I know he’s good and that would be a great situation for me to go into right now.”

Many prospects make a distinction between the team they’re a fan of and where they should pick, but Dorsett said that growing up a big Miami fan is at the front of his mind.

“That plays into it a lot because I always wanted to play for Miami and be at Miami,” Dorsett said. “It’s great to know that I can really go there and that’s basically my top school right now. If I grew up on Miami and it wasn’t a good situation for me now, I wouldn’t go. It really is a good situation for me now so it plays another part that I always grew up a fan of Miami.”

Dorsett had recently named North Carolina as his leader, but he talked about why the Tar Heels as well as the Ohio State Buckeyes now sit behind the Canes.

“Yea it was really today (that helped Miami) because I hadn’t really toured the campus and I was only there once this spring and that was limited,” Dorsett said. “Other schools are North Carolina, Ohio State, USF, Wake Forest, and Clemson. Miami, North Carolina, and Ohio State, those are the main three.”

Miami’s recent jump comes at the most opportune time with Dorsett planning to make a decision before the end of the month.

“I’m going up to USF, Ohio State, and the schools in the North Carolina area like North Carolina, Clemson, and Wake Forest,” Dorsett said. “After I get these visits in, I’ll probably commit at the end of this month. I’m not too far off now.”

UM Re-Enters Race for TE Barnett
Jun. 11, 2010

By: Nate Adelson

While on a junior day visit back in February, tight end Chris Barnett from A. Maceo Smith High in Dallas, Texas, decided that Oklahoma was the right place for him.


Fast forward a few months, and Barnett (6-4, 244) has withdrawn his pledge from the Sooners to be more open with the recruiting process.

“I had been taking visits so I felt like I was doing the wrong thing if I was committed,” Barnett said. “Me being in high school, you don’t get all these chances to go to the East Coast and the West Coast. You want to take those chances when you get them. Being committed when I wasn’t going there for sure, I was thinking ‘What am I doing really?’

Despite the decommitment over the weekend, Barnett is still considering Oklahoma and could still end up in Norman down the line.

“The coaches at Oklahoma, they really didn’t say too much about it,” Barnett said. “I talked to Coach Wilson on facebook about everything. He said he understood where I was coming from and he would continue to recruit me. I’m still looking at them but I’m open to everybody. I’m just going through the whole process and doing it the right way.”

Some schools that Barnett likes were among his favorites before his initial commitment, but others arrived at the party more recently.

“I like Oklahoma, Miami, Florida State, Arkansas, USC, UCLA, Texas, and Oklahoma State so that’s a bunch of schools,” Barnett said. “I would have to say that Arkansas and Texas were really the schools that stayed on me when I was committed.”

Barnett isn’t exactly sure about his plans moving forward, in part because he doesn’t want to rush anything but also because he is intensely focused on his senior season.

“I really don’t have a set time to commit again or anything with recruiting,” Barnett said. “I’m just getting ready for my senior year because I only have one more year. If something comes up, I wouldn’t mind some visits this summer. I don’t really call around looking to go places, I only go if I’m invited. Like I said, my main concern is my high school team.”

Barnett and his father have a long standing relationship with Coach McGriff, which dates back his older brother, Eryon Barnett, who Miami targeted in the class of 2008 before he ended up signing with Texas.

“I’ve talked to Coach McGriff every once and awhile and Miami is my number five school right now,” Barnett said. “I’ve known him for a long time so it’s not even about football like that. We talk about doing well in school, making the right choices, and keeping your head on straight.”

Barnett hopes to visit Miami this summer but isn’t sure if it will be possible because of his team commitments. If he can’t make it unofficially this summer, he said he will visit officially “for sure” since he has never made it to campus.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The defending 6A state champs prevailed in the Heath Evans 7-on-7 Tournament on Saturday.

Miramar defeated Glades Central in surprising fashion in the championship game in the 16-team tournament.

Dwyer and Belen Jesuit made it to the semifinals.

Other teams in the tournament included: Booker T. Washington, Boyd Anderson, Carol City, Pompano Beach Ely, Tampa Plant, Glades Day, American Heritage (Delray), Park Vista, John I. Leonard, Royal Palm Beach, The King’s Academy, and Olympic Heights.

Heath Evans, who won a Super Bowl with the Saints this past season was accompanied by NFLers Vince Wilfork and Kevin Faulk at the event.

Future Gators Chris Dunkley and Quinton Dunbar were also in attendance.

***********************************
*****************************

Class of 2011 Checklist

• TE Nick O’Leary, Dwyer – In an event featuring arguably four of the state’s top 10 prospects, O’Leary was the most impressive throughout the day. It’s not too often you see great players continue to noticeably improve, but O’Leary breaks that mold. He’s added 15 pounds and maybe an extra inch since the state championship game and is now up to 235 pounds. He runs excellent routes and sets up his routes very well especially mixing in his outs with his ins as he does a great job of planting with his lead foot. Not only does O’Leary run great routes, but he catches nearly everything thrown his way regardless of how many guys are on him—sometimes he had three defenders covering him, but he outjumped them to come down with the ball. He made one real tough catch in a crucial situation against Plant and came down hard on his back, knocking the wind out. He plays extremely hard and there can’t be a better tight end in the country. He has an extremely bright future ahead of him with plenty of options. Miami and Florida State remain viable options for him as well as Ohio State, Georgia, and Florida. A recent trip to Alabama prompted O’Leary to wear a white Alabama hat during the event. And for those wanting to count out the defending national champs with another top Florida prospect, I wouldn’t do so.

• WR Kelvin Benjamin, Glades Central – Benjamin was very impressive as well, scoring deep touchdowns and making tough grabs. Some felt Benjamin had the best day, but in my opinion I’m sticking with O’Leary. It’s absurd that some media outlets rank Benjamin outside the top 20 wide receivers in the country. Without question, he’s a top five national receiver. He runs very good routes for a 6-6 player, and has good speed. He’s also doing a great job of catching passes in traffic. One thing that he showed at the event, was his deceptive elusiveness in the open field, which is pretty impressive given his size. He’s a guy that should be able to get yards after catch at the next level especially if he develops a strong stiff-arm, something he doesn’t do a lot of at the high school level because he’s usually behind his man or coming down on them with the ball.

• LB/RB James Wilder, Tampa Plant – These types of events aren’t great for Wilder to show off his ability. But put on the pads and it’s lights out. Wilder said he enjoyed the event with his teammates as Plant traveled over 50 players down to South Florida. Wilder played on both sides of the ball, he was more productive as a defensive player showing off his strength and lateral quickness. On offense, it’s tough for a running back to get open or make deep plays.

• RB Tre Mason, Park Vista – Mason remains one of the more underappreciated players in South Florida as he has good speed and ability. He’s not at a powerhouse program, which hurts his stock, but is still a very good player.

• DE Curt Maggitt, Dwyer – Maggitt participated as a receiver and did an adequate job. One scout wondered if he could play tight at the next level based on his thin size at the end position, but he’s unlikely to be asked to switch positions as he’s one of the state’s premier ends.

• WR Neville Brown, Glades Central – Brown (5-7, 150) had a very good day scoring a number of touchdowns showing off his top-notch speed in the open field. He’s a blazer on the field and could play himself into a scholarship offer as a senior after scoring four touchdowns as a junior.

• OL/DL Van Davis, Royal Palm Beach – Davis (6-6, 270) did not participate in the event, but was in attendance with his teammates. Word around the program is that Davis is struggling to stay academically eligible for the fall season and is likely headed to a junior college, possibly Butler (Kan.) Community College. When on the field, he’s a nice-looking raw prospect with a good upside.

***********************************
*****************************

Class of 2012 Checklist

• CB A.J. Leggett, Booker T. Washington – Leggett continues to impress and prove why he’s considered the top 2012 prospect in South Florida. He started off the tournament slow, before recording a two-interception game. His best strength is his ability to be physical at the line. Leggett is coming off a six-interception sophomore campaign and lists UM as his top school in the early going.

• WR Jaime Wilson, Glades Central – There is a reason why coach Jessie Hester thinks Wilson will be better than all of the recent Raider standout receivers including: Deonte Thompson, Travis Benjamin, Rantavious Wooten, and Greg Dent. Wilson was dominant at the event showing off his speed, agility, and deceptive strength. He’s a good all-around receiver that should put up big numbers in a breakout season this upcoming year.

• WR Termaine McCullough, Royal Palm Beach – Dunkley deemed McCullough as “mini-me” in reference to his time at Royal Palm Beach. McCullough (5-9, 160) is a vibrant receiver with quickness, who did an excellent job of making plays throughout the entire event. He helped himself the most out of all of the prospects as he elevated his game and created a name for himself. He scored three touchdowns in a loss to Dwyer. He’ll be one to watch this season.

• CB Tracy Howard, Miramar – According to one opposing coach, he said he really liked Howard’s moxie on the field. Howard definitely plays with a little bounce to his step, and understandably so given he was a key player on Miramar’s state title team last year as a sophomore recording four interceptions. Howard has better speed than Leggett, but lacks the size of Leggett. However, the two will continue to be compared to each other as they continue to emerge from the pack as top 2012 prospects.

• RB Brian Grove, The King’s Academy – Grove (5-9, 190) is a well-built player with 4.5 speed. He’s coming off a sophomore season in which he rushed for 633 yards and nine touchdowns averaging 8.7 yards a carry while splitting the carries. In the spring game, he racked up over 200 yards and is poised for a breakout season in 2010.

***********************************
*****************************

Class of 2013 Checklist

• CB William Likley, Glades Central – Likley was a solid cover corner throughout the event that rarely saw many balls thrown in his direction, which is a good sign. Despite being just 5-foot-7, he has plenty of ability and his coaches rave about his upside.

UM Gets Involved With DE Drew
Jun. 13, 2010

By: Nate Adelson

Ray Drew.

Defensive end Ray Drew from Thomas County Central High in Thomasville, Georgia, has plenty of offers considering he is the number three overall prospect in the ESPU 150.

However, Miami is his newest offer as Cane coaches wanted to review the film before deciding Drew (6-5, 253) should be targeted.

“The official letter actually came in just yesterday,” Drew said. “I’ve talked to Coach Petri, Coach Gonnella, and Coach Hurtt before he left to go to Louisville. Coach McGriff too but Coach Petri is the main one. Whenever I had talked with them, they said they didn’t offer because they thought I was a long shot at first. They were waiting on my film too but they had been recruiting me. They recently got it and said they liked it so they sent me the offer. I guess you could say they had an eye on me for awhile.”

Drew said that he is not bothered in the least bit that so many other schools decided to send him offers far before Miami did.

“The way I look at it is somebody had to give me my first offer and somebody will have to be my last offer,” Drew said. “Just because a school offered me first doesn’t mean their level of interest in me is any higher than a school that offered later.”

Drew, who recorded 72 tackles and six sacks as a junior, said that he sees a lot to like about what Miami has to offer.

“I know Miami is a great school academically and they’re on of the top schools in the APR that just came out,” Drew said. “It’s a private school in Coral Gables and they’re one of the standout schools in the ACC. They have great tradition dating back to the 80s and Ray Lewis did his thing there. With what the school has been built on and as long as tradition holds true, you can always look for something exciting to come out of Miami.”

Drew is up to 27 offers in total, including nine SEC schools and seven ACC schools, but is completely open to any school out there right now.

Drew plans on riding the recruiting process all the way out until national signing day, or at least pretty close to it.

“I think I’m going to be a late commit because whenever I make my final decision, it needs to be the right one,” Drew said. “I don’t want to go through de-committing and that type of deal so I’m going to take my time. Then I can make it out to all the schools and see what everyone has to offer.”

Drew listed some of the schools he has already visited and he mentioned that a visit to Miami may also be in the works.

“I’ve been to Georgia, Georgia Tech, Florida, Florida State, and over spring break I went to South Carolina, Clemson, Tennessee, and Auburn,” Drew said. “I don’t know when I could get to Miami but I have a bunch of family down there. They were talking about a family reunion down in that area. Depending on what they say about that and when it takes place, that will determine whether I get down there or not.”

Barnett’s Great Eight

Scout.com caught up with Scout300 member Chris Barnett to get his latest take on the recruiting process. After de-committing from Oklahoma he has a list of eight schools that he has put in numerical order. What schools are on the list and who sits at the top? Read below to find out more…

Chris Barnett, a 6-foot-6, 250-pound tight end from A. Maceo Smith High in Dallas, Texas very recently made the decision to step back from his commitment to the University of Oklahoma.
Barnett had a number of reason for doing so, but the biggest reason was that he did not feel like it was respectful to the university for him to be committed while still checking out and entertaining offers from other programs.

“I felt kind of rushed in to it and my dad was not up there when I did it (committed) and that kind of played in to it, but the real thing is that I want to take all of my trips and see all of the schools I can, just go see the world,” Barnett began to explain.

“But really it does not feel right doing that, it feels like you are being disrespectful (when you are committed). It almost feels like you are doing something that you should not be doing, and I don’t like feeling like that. I do want to go see everything and I do like Oklahoma a whole lot, but I have an opportunity to go out see the east coast and the west coast and I may never have these opportunities again. So I am going to take those opportunities and you never know what is going to happen.”

Barnett felt that pressure ten-fold last weekend while he was on the campus of OU’s bitter rival , Texas. To participate in the Longhorns summer camp.

“When I went down to Texas for camp I felt almost like I was not supposed to be there, but I wanted to go but I was committed to Oklahoma and it just did not feel right. So I knew that the only way I could get that pressure off of me and the only way I would feel right taking these visits is if I de-commit.”

How was the camp experience in Austin?

“It was good,” Barnett said. “I did not really expect much, because when I first got there, there were a lot of people I did not even recognize, but then Desmond Jackson and Sheroid Evans and M.J. McFarland and everybody - all of the big time guys - started showing up. I was like here we go, now we’re talking. Overall, the camp was fine and I got motivated when my brother (Eryon Barnett) and Aaron Williams came to watch me. After the camp they said I did pretty good and I was wrecking on those cats.”

“So the camp was great.”

Now that Barnett is getting back in to the recruiting process he has a list of eight schools that he is considering and he listed them in his current order of preference starting with the eighth school first.

8. Oklahoma State – Oklahoma State has always been recruiting me and stuff and they have really been a team that has always been in the mix, but I really do not get the chance to talk to them as much. But my dad always tells me what they say when they come by, so I feel good that they have always stuck around.

7. Alabama – Bama with Coach Cignetti up there has always kept a close relationship with me and we always chop it up. We were supposed to go up there for a 7-on-7 and we could not make it, but they are always a powerhouse in the SEC, and that is the toughest conference in college football.

6. Florida State – I grew up watching Florida State, because my dad was a Florida State fan, so I know the tradition and everything they have. The tight end coach up there has always kept a close relationship with me. And Coach Stoops is always telling me he needs to get me away from his brother.

5. Miami – Miami is Miami. They put people in the NFL and I have always liked them. And that is why at the beginning of the process everyone said that is my top school and I am going to end up there. They are still sticking around.

4. Texas – This one is interesting… I am Texas kid. I grew up watching Texas. So I grew up watching them in the Mack Brown era and my brother went there. He brings people home that play football there and they say it is great place to be and you know the players are not going to lie to you. Everything they say about the program is great. The only thing they don’t like is that it is kind of clustered, but they say that it is fine once you get moving around, but they say the lifestyle is great.

3. USC – Coach Garza has always been recruiting me since he was at Tennessee and I have always just had a real close relationship with him. He recruited my brother and I was always around so he was always talking to me. I had an offer letter from them since my junior year and I never even knew it until he got there.

2. Arkansas – Arkansas is number two because of the relationship I have with Coach McGee and Coach Kabala up there. They are real down to earth guys and they don’t sugar coat anything to you. They are real. After I committed to Oklahoma they did not brush me off they just pushed even harder and I appreciate that.

1. Oklahoma – Oklahoma is number one because I committed to Oklahoma. I did it early but I had good reasons and I had good intentions. I did it and nothing has really changed with them. Oklahoma is Oklahoma. They are still there and I talked to Coach Wilson and they are still recruiting me.

Eval - Barnett was a MR. Do it All for his high school team as a junior in 2009. On any given Friday night you would see him playing all over the field on both sides of the ball, which speaks to his athleticism. He has all of the tools to be an excellent all-around tight end in college and because he is still raw his upside is even higher. He is one of the best pass catching tight ends that shows the ability to lay a lick as well.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Palm Beach Dwyer defensive end Curt Maggitt just got back from a five day trip that covered many of the big time programs in the southeast.

Maggitt, along with teammates Nick O’Leary and Jacoby Brissett, took visits to North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama last week and learned a lot from the visits.

“It was good to meet a lot of different coaches with a lot of different personalities and schemes,” Maggitt said. “All of the schools had something special about them.”

One school who particularly impressed Maggitt during the week was Alabama. Maggitt participated in the Heath Evans Foundation 7-on-7 Tournament on Saturday and was seen sporting an Alabama hat.

“I liked Alabama. They have nice facilities and everything looked good. They have a nice coaching staff too.”

One of the highlights of the Alabama visit was meeting coach Nick Saban.

“It is crazy sitting in the same room as a legend and a great coach,” Maggitt said. “He was talking to me one on one and you can take a lot talking to a person like that.”

During Saturday’s 7-on-7 tournament, Maggitt helped lead Dwyer reach the semifinals before they fell to Glades Central.

“Doing good in these type of 7-on-7 tournaments is big because it can get our team better and get the younger players experience and have fun together,” Maggitt said.

Maggitt finished his junior season at Dwyer as one of the most disruptive defensive forces in Florida, finishing with 14 sacks this season while helping lead Dwyer to a State Championship. Maggitt spent most of the offseason rehabbing a shoulder injury he sustained during the season, but now he is back playing 100% healthy.

“I have been back since spring football, but I didn’t play in the spring game,” Maggitt said. “I just worked out with the team a little bit.”

Maggitt has a.ssumed the role of being one of the senior leaders this offseason and he likes the way the team came together during the spring.

“I think the team did well during the spring,” Maggitt said. “We have a lot of new people that came in, so it is a different team. We just need to come together and we will be fine. If we improve our chemistry that will be something that helps us out a lot.”

Miami was a school who Maggitt spoke to regularly early in the recruiting process, but lately he says the Hurricanes haven’t shown as much interest. Maggitt says he would still like to hear more for the UM coaching staff.

“I get letters from Miami pretty much every day, but I don’t really talk to them that much right now. It is still early and I am not making any decisions any time soon, so there is still a lot of time to learn more about Miami and other schools. The thing that is very important with me is getting to know the coaching staff.”

Benjamin Learning About Bridgewater
Jun. 14, 2010

By: David Lake





Kelvin Benjamin
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Knowing that a good quarterback is coming in the same recruiting class is important to Glades Central wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin.

Benjamin (6-6, 225) says he did hear the news that Northwestern’s Teddy Bridgewater recently committed to the University of Miami and now he is trying to learn more about the future UM quarterback.

“I haven’t ever talked to him, but I do know he would be the quarterback if I was to go to Miami,” Benjamin said. “I looked him up a little bit and I hear people talk about him and stuff like that. They say he is a good runner and he is a good thrower when he runs around. I have heard a little bit about him.”

When it comes to picking his future school, Benjamin admits that it is important to come in with a good quarterback.

“That is going to be big,” Benjamin said. “I want to be able to build up a relationship with that quarterback so we can be ready as a freshmen and get those yards and touchdowns as soon as we can.”

Benjamin is the top wide receiver prospect in Florida this year and the University of Miami is making him a top priority at this point in the recruiting process.

“They are recruiting me real hard,” Benjamin said of Miami. “They came out to the school a lot during the spring and I talk to (current UM receiver) Travis Benjamin a lot. I talk to him about how they are looking throwing the ball around in practice and stuff like that.”

As a junior, Benjamin accounted for 861 yards and six touchdowns on 36 receptions.

On Saturday, Benjamin participated in the Heath Evans Foundation 7-on-7 Tournament at the Kings Academy and helped lead Glades Central to the final round against Miramar. Benjamin talked about the benefits of playing well in a 7-on-7 tournament.

“There is a lot of athletes out here and it is good to come out and work hard,” Benjamin said. “I can get a good bond with my quarterback. We are doing pretty good with it and we have been practicing real hard during the offseason. We just want to be competitive against all the other teams.”

Benjamin claims to be neutral at this point to all schools. He plans to participate in the summer camps at both Florida and Florida State.

USC is a school who has also shown Benjamin strong interest until this point, but with the recent NCAA sanctions being handed down, Benjamin is not sure what to think about the Trojans.

“I have been looking at everything on ESPN a lot with USC,” Benjamin said. “I don’t want to really go to a school that is under investigation. I want to go to a school that has a good reputation. I don’t want to be in a bad atmosphere.”

Benjamin says that he is on track to graduate on time and that he is looking into possibly graduating in December. During the summer Benjamin is taking a Spanish class.

“I am on track to graduate,” Benjamin said. “The only thing is I will only be able to play eight games this season, but I am not worried about that. I am just focused on getting to the next level.”

“I don’t know yet right now if I can graduate early. I am still trying to do that. After I take Spanish I am going to try and get another class in and then I will have less classes and I might be able to get it done.”

Benjamin plans on participating in the Army All-American Game this year and he plans to make his college announcement either at that game or on National Signing Day.

Wilder hasn’t heard from Miami


Jun 14, 2010


WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Miami was the first school to recruit James Wilder as a running back.

Wilder, arguably the best 2010 prospect in Florida, held UM in high regards for wanting him on the offensive side of the ball instead of linebacker, where most schools wanted him.

However, his feelings towards UM have lessened over the past couple of months as UM has not been in touch with him.

“Actually we have not been in touch for a time now,” says Wilder, who says he has not heard from UM since mid-April.

When asked if he was disappointed that he has not heard from UM, he responded:

“They’re not trying to get in contact so I mean, I’m sure they didn’t take away the offer, but if they don’t want to contact me, then I’m not going to keep asking them to. It is what it is.”

There is concern from UM’s standpoint with their ability to successfully recruit a Tampa Plant prospect considering the falling out with former UM quarterback Robert Marve, who transferred and had his decision in the public eye as his father Eugene and coach Robert Weiner voiced their displeasure with the program in the media.

But Wilder, who is in his second year at Plant, has insisted that Marve’s situation would not affect his feelings towards UM.

“(Marve) is like one of my brothers here because he’s from Plant, I’m going to call him one of my brothers,” said Wilder in his previous interview with InsideTheU.com. “But I never really talked to him about (Miami). I talked to old Miami coach, Coach Hurtt and he just told me it was like problems he had and problems he went through discipline-wise. I know colleges feel very strong about that, if you have discipline problems—they didn’t kick him off the team, he was just second-string so nothing on Robert Marve, but it doesn’t affect me, definitely. I know discipline is discipline.”

In addition, concerns from UM’s point of view have also came up regarding Wilder’s academic situation.


While UM appears to be longer in the mix for Wilder, he has plenty of options and is planning on visiting schools this summer.


“I’m going to visit USC and Georgia for sure and definitely lots more like Oregon,” Wilder said. “I’m also going to go up to Cal when I go to USC.”

USC has been a school that has showed a lot of interest in Wilder and he says he still plans on visiting USC regardless of the recent punishments handed down by the NCAA.

“I just really want to go look at it. That was from the past,” he said. “They lost 10 offers or something, I don’t really know too much about it, but I’m definitely still going to visit and take my trip.”

Wilder recently made a trip to South Florida over the weekend with his teammates from Plant as they were one of 16 teams participating in the Heath Evans 7-on-7 tournament.
“It’s a team bonding thing,” Wilder said. “We drove four hours to get here. We didn’t want to drive out here for nothing. I think it brings us closer.”

While at the event, Wilder played on both sides of the ball as a linebacker and a running back.
“It helps with my endurance and it’s practice,” he said. “This is not a state championship, but I’m definitely taking it like it’s a state championship.”

Wilder’s squad was defeated twice by Dwyer led by star tight end Nick O’Leary.

“He’s real good. He’s a strong player,” Wilder said. “They weren’t really using him as a receiver too much, he’s more of a pick guy and getting into space. We were going at it. He’s a great athlete.”

The two had some heated battles at the tournament, something Wilder enjoys.

“I definitely like going up against (other big names). I love it. I love competition like that,” he said. “There’s not really a lot of people my size, he’s probably a little bit bigger, but we were going at it. He wasn’t letting up not one play, and I wasn’t letting up not one play. We just went back-and-forth until the whistle.”

Wilder is coming off a junior season at Tampa Plant in which he rushed for 995 yards and 15 touchdowns in addition to 129 tackles and 19 sacks while helping lead the Panthers to the Class 5A state title.

Gorman Close to a Decision
Jun 16, 2010

Monsignor Pace defensive back Jabari Gorman has Miami in high regard ever since he received an official scholarship offer from them back in February.

Miami currently resides in Gorman’s (5-10, 170) top three and although he doesn’t want to rush anything, he may be deciding relatively soon.

“Miami, Alabama, Ohio State, those are the three schools that stand out right now,” Gorman said. “I’ve been Miami and Ohio State, then like UCF, USF, but nowhere else. I’m trying to get to LSU and North Carolina this summer. I don’t know yet when I’ll commit but as soon as possible. It’s getting close though, I can tell you that much. It’s really starting to narrow down. Another thing is that I have more offers than the rest of the Miami commitments, so it’s a little different for me. I need to have support from my family on my decision too.”

On his latest stop in Coral Gables for the Randy Shannon Summer Camp, Gorman said for the first time, he really felt like a top caliber recruit.

“It was good and I got a little bit more feel for the camp,” Gorman said. “It made me feel like more of a top player now, not just any recruit. I was watching how the coaches worked the camp, and I got to talk to Coach Hill and Coach McGriff a little more. I met some more of the coaching staff and I enjoyed myself.”

Coach Hill has been the primary recruiter for Gorman since the early days of his recruitment back in September.

“Everything is good between me and him,” Gorman said. “He tells me exactly what’s real and what’s not so that’s just how our relationship is. He’s always a guy who gives me a reason to smile about the ‘U’.”

Gorman has been a high priority for Miami over the past few months and although he likes Miami, he hopes Cane coaches understand that he’s not ready to decide yet.

“I’m guessing they should be cool with me taking my time because any way you look at it, it’s still my decision,” Gorman said. “I told them I have to figure out everything because I don’t want to make a decision and have any doubts about it.”

Aside from what he hears from Miami’s coaches, the efforts of three out of Miami’s four current commitments are not lost on him either.

“I talked to the kid from Boston (Albert Louis-Jean) who committed to the ‘U’ already,” Gorman said. “I met him but there weren’t too many players I knew there besides him. Oh yea, I talked to Teddy and Eli the other day. I didn’t say them because they’re my friends and I talk to them day after day. I don’t even consider them like recruits to me, I think of them as guys that I know. They talk up Miami every day too, we just talked about the ‘U’ yesterday when we watched the team practice. It does (have an effect), it does but it also brings pressure. It works both ways because it’s not just players telling me, I hear the same things from the fans.”
