WR Daniels Ready to Announce Decision
Jun. 21, 2010

By: Nate Adelson





DaVaris Daniels
Wide receiver DaVaris Daniels from Vernon Hills High in Vernon Hills, Illinois, has arrived at the point where he is almost ready to choose where he will be attending.

Daniels (6-2, 164) will choose from three finalists at 12:00 central time tomorrow in a ceremony at his school.

“Well the three up there will be Notre Dame, Miami, and Oklahoma,” Daniels said. “They all have an equal chance. Well they don’t but I’m not going to say anybody is ahead until I announce where I’m going.”

Here’s what Daniels had to say about each of his choices:

Notre Dame: “I can say everything that Coach Kelly is doing really stands out. The relationship that I build with a couple players on the team and a couple coaches, that stands out too. I probably have the best relationship with their coaches.”

Miami: “The brotherhood they have there is something that I would like to be a part of. I like everything that Coach Shannon is doing and it’s like ‘Receiver U’. It was always an attractive school to me, especially if I’m trying to make it to the NFL.”

Oklahoma: “They’re winners and lately they’ve been winning a lot. Coach Stoops knows what he’s doing and I’ve also built a relationship with Coach Norvell, the receivers coach. That’s why they’re still in it.”

Miami and Oklahoma have not received unofficial visits from Daniels, so he discussed why that isn’t a huge issue for him.

“I don’t think seeing a campus would change my mind that much,” Daniels said. “If it was bad, then I would just have to live with my choice but that’s not going to affect me on the football field. Of course, you want to say that it’s a nice campus but how it looks really doesn’t matter as long as the education is good.”

Daniels had expected a visit from Coach Stoutland in May but Miami sent a different coach to see him instead.

“Coach Stoutland had some kind of issue so he didn’t come because I think he was in the hospital,” Daniels said. “They sent another coach up to see me so I talked to him. I talked Coach Stoutland all the time and he knows a couple people at the place where I work out. He showed up there a few times so we talked very often.”

Daniels already knows where he will choose, so he finished by touching on what swayed him towards that school in the end.

“I’d say that growing up, especially in my area, you really hear a lot about this school,” Daniels said. “It was a powerhouse at one point and I think they’re back on the rise again. They have a couple people in the NFL that really draw me into it and that played a big role in my decision.”

CaneSport Reports Two-Team Battle Shaping up for WR Kelvin Benjamin


Jun 21, 2010



Belle Glade (Fla.) Glades Central High School WR Kelvin Benjamin isn't your typical high profile football recruit.

For one thing, he didn't come out for organized football until his sophomore year - at 6-foot-6 and 215 pounds coaches thought he would play basketball instead.

And he had a turbulent youth, growing up in a foster home before reuniting with his mother. Benjamin currently doesn't have a phone, but Glades Central High School Coach Jessie Hester says of the standout recruit that "You wouldn't know the kid went through the things he probably had to go through because he's a happy-go-lucky kid, always smiling. You can tell that turmoil is behind him. When I first got him he wanted to get involved with something that would take him away from certain situations where he can be occupied doing something. That gave him peace of mind where he's having fun, can forget about those other problems.

"He's an excellent kid. He's a model citizen, does everything we've asked of him in the classroom. He has turned his life around for the better."

Because of some struggles in his youth, Benjamin was held back academically. And because he's turning 19 during this season, high school rules dictate he will miss the team's final regular season games and any playoff run. Benjamin had originally considered attending Hargrave Military so he could play a full year, but he has now decided he'll stay at Glades Central.

"He'll play in eight or nine games before he's ineligible," Hester said.

Hester says Cane coaches first offered Benjamin a scholarship last year. He now lists almost 40 scholarship offers.

"Everyone loves his size, but once you see the kid move, that's what they like about him," Hester said. "His size and his athletic ability with that size, he's in that Larry Fitzgerald mode. A lot of people also say Plaxico Burress, that he reminds them of him."

Hester says when he first saw Benjamin on the field as a sophomore "he needed a lot of work. But you saw the frame, knew he was able to run [Benjamin runs a low 4.5-second 40 time]. Anytime a kid of that size is able to run, if you put in the time and dedication you know he can be a special player."

Hester says he thinks two schools have an early edge for Benjamin.

"I think Miami is one of those schools he's highly considering," Hester said. "One other is Florida that he's really high on as well. Those two I think are the two leading contenders right now.

"He'll probably decide late in the process. He wants to make sure that he weighs all his options, looks at all the schools and what they have to offer."

Last year Benjamin finished with 30 receptions for 700 yards and eight touchdowns.

OT Marcus Jackson Firming up his Commitment


Jun 22, 2010



Vero Beach (FL) High School OL Marcus Jackson has listed himself as a soft commitment this recruiting season, and he intended to take a full slate of visits.

But now he's firming that up.

"My commitment is pretty solid now," Jackson said. "I don't know if I'll take any other visits."

Jackson says he feels comfortable with the Canes after talking with their coaches frequently. He's especially developed a strong rapport with his position coach, Jeff Stoutland.

"We can talk about anything," Jackson said. "I love him. I love his personality and his energy. He's a great guy to be around.

"I've also been talking to coach (Micheal) Barrow lately. The coaches, we're real close, like family."

Jackson has kept piling on offers since his Cane commitment. Some of the more recent ones are from Tennessee and Michigan State.

Like fellow commitment Albert Louis-Jean, Jackson plans to graduate early.

"I'm on track to do that," he says.

And Jackson has been in touch with Louis-Jean.

"We talk about what we'll do when we get there, the All-American games, things like that," Jackson said. "I've also talked to Giorgio Newberry, stay in touch with him. We just talk about the season, not too much about recruiting."

* Of how his spring ball went, Jackson said, "I felt I had a pretty good spring. I worked on some footwork, got a lot stronger since the offseason, a lot quicker. And the team's looking good. I'm the lone returning starter on the offensive line, so it takes some time to form that bond."

Last year Jackson played left tackle; this year he's a right tackle.

"It's not a big deal, is just the other side," he said.

Jackson says he also may play some defense this coming season as well.

* Jackson currently weighs 305 pounds, up from his playing weight of 295 last year.

"I can always lean out, but I gained some muscle and I want to keep my strength," Jackson said.

Latwan Talks UM, Buckeyes, and More
Jun. 22, 2010

By: Christopher Stock





Latwan Anderson
Latwan Anderson is Miami’s best recruit in the 2010 class.

Even if he’s coming in on a track scholarship.

The 5-foot-11, dynamic playmaker as a defensive back was a surprise to a recruiting class that needed a boost.

“He’s special,” one UM coach said.

Anderson, who had 14 interceptions as a senior at Glenville High School in Cleveland, provides that boost.

“As soon as I get there I plan to show that I can work as hard as anyone else and make plays like anybody else,” said Anderson, a future education major.

He has high goals set for himself in his career as a Hurricane hoping to leave a mark on a school that prides itself on producing great players, future Pro Bowlers and Hall of Famers at the next level.

“I’m not really sure how you will take this, but this is how I feel—when I leave this school I want to be known as one of the best defensive players and one of the best players overall to play in the history of this school,” Anderson said. “That’s just how I would feel if I was at any school, that’s just me.”

Anderson, who elected not to sign with West Virginia on signing day, instead delaying his college intentions and signing a letter of intent to Miami in March on a track scholarship due to the school being filled up with football scholarships.

He will arrive in Coral Gables on June 28 and begin off-season workouts prior to fall practices, which are expected to begin August 7.

“I am very excited. I’m just been thinking about it all week. I’m just pumped about that,” Anderson said.

Anderson says he’s unsure of what position he will play when he gets to Miami although the word around UM is that he’ll begin his career at safety with a possible move to cornerback.

“I don’t know if I’m going to play offense or defense,” Anderson said. “I’ve heard corner, safety, slot receiver so I don’t really know. I’ve always said that I would prefer to be a defensive player because that’s what I was born to do. But at the same time, if the team needs me to be an offensive player, that’s what I’ll do and I’ll make myself the best at that.”

When looking back at his decision to attend Miami, Anderson said that most people, including UM head coach Randy Shannon, a.ssumed he was headed to nearby Ohio State.

“It was basically where I always liked Miami and Miami recruiting me early in the process, but Coach Shannon felt that the word around was that I was automatically going to go to Ohio State,” Anderson said. “.He said he felt that there was no need to chase me if in the end I was just going to go to Ohio State. When I picked West Virginia—and I did because at the time that’s where I wanted to be for these next few years—and I guess other schools felt that they could get me.

“The reason why I didn’t sign was because that USC and Miami were two schools that I really liked and if they were schools that recruited me since the beginning like West Virginia did, I probably would have never committed there in the first place. It just so happened where Miami had a situation where it was good for me and it turned out better for me in the end and I felt it worked out just the way it should have.”

He’s developed a good relationship with current UM defensive backs Brandon Harris and DeMarcus Van Dyke since his signing. He just started talking to Brandon McGee, all three of which are also on the track team. Anderson lists Graig Cooper as his favorite current Hurricane because of the excitement be brings to the field.

When asked who his favorite Hurricane of all-time his, the answer may surprise you because it’s not a guy currently playing in the NFL.

“I’d have to say Melvin Bratton,” Anderson said. “I was watching the 30-for-30 special and just seeing some of the clips that they were showing, in my younger days of playing football I wore number five and I could see myself doing some of the things he did. I just felt there was a connection there. If I do have to play offense at Miami, that’s who I would like to play like—exciting and explosive.”








Track Star

Anderson recently broke two Ohio track records, both held by former Minnesota Vikings running back Robert Smith.

Anderson ran the 200 meters in 20.92, which ranks in the top 10 nationally. Smith ran a 21.37.

This is his first year running the 400 and he ran a 47.26, beating Smith’s mark of 47.55.

“I was the only senior, a lot of seniors decided they didn’t want to do track anymore, but track is something that I really love to do,” Anderson said. “All year my coach told me to put my name on something to make people remember me. I feel I had a pretty good year, I broke a couple of records.”

Beating Smith meant more to Anderson, who attended Smith’s alma mater as a freshman.

“It was real exciting because not a lot of people know I went to Euclid as a freshman and I actually met him so it was real exciting to me that I was able to stack myself with the rest of the people in the country and the people before me. Just know that I can make my own name and not have to follow anybody else,” Anderson said.


With track and a battle with the flu, Anderson lost nearly 30 pounds from football season and was down to 155 pounds, but says he’ll be able to get that weight back up when football starts again.

Since track, he’s been taking it easy.

“I’m I talked to (Miami) coach Amy Deem and she told me not to do anything after state,” Anderson said. “Just rest because I will a little banged up with my hamstring so I haven’t really been doing anything.”

He’s only been running track for 18 months, but has quickly become one of the nation’s best. He’s noticed that participating in track helps him during football.

“It helps me a lot. We stretch a lot so I am far more limber,” he said. “When it comes to football I can stop and make quick cuts without pulling muscles or getting injured when I take a hit or delivering a hit. And when it comes to the season, I’m in shape because I’ve been running all year. When I start running with the football team I am actually more into it. I’m able to keep my cool and be more disciplined towards the end of games when everybody else tends to fall apart.”








In regards to coming to UM on a track scholarship, it’s not something that bothers him or that he feels slighted by.

“I’m not concerned at all because I have looked it up and done research on it,” he said. “There’s plenty of players that made a name for themselves at Miami that went on to be successful in life that came in on a track scholarship and also played football so I’m not worried about it. I look it as I’ll be doing the same thing I did in high school, playing football and then running track. When it’s time to run track, I’ll be a track runner. When it’s time to play football, I’ll be a football player.”

Disrespected by Ohio State

Latwan has September 11th circled on his calendar.

That’s the day Miami travels to Columbus for a showdown with Ohio State.

“All I keep hearing is what Ohio State is going to do to Miami, Ohio State has this, they have that, but I feel like—since my visit, a lot of players on the team in Miami feel the same way I do—I could care less about Ohio State with who they have or what they have,” Anderson said. “And the only way to shut them up is that day on the field. I feel like just because I have so much passion into this game that I know if they give me a chance I can be one of the reasons why we win that game because I feel I will just go off that game because I hate them so much.”

Many people in the state expected Anderson to attend Ohio State after a standout junior season at St. Edward, but he felt slighted by the home state team during the recruiting process.

“I’ve liked Ohio State, I’m not going to say I’ve never liked them—I’m from Ohio, but during my recruiting process I kind of felt disrespected,” Anderson said. “Some of it may have been some of the things I have been through in high school, but I felt disrespected by that whole program.”

During his freshman season, he says he doesn’t have any particular individual goals, just the game against the Buckeyes.

“Right now I don’t really have yearly goals, but the only thing I’m focused on right now is September 11th, that’s it, that Ohio State game.”








Showing the Love

While Anderson is excited to be a Hurricane, fans are elated. The buzz around him has been extremely high especially considering how he ended up signing late. He’s starting to understand the fanfare surrounding him.

“I never really knew for real until recently it just starting coming up,” Anderson said. “A lot of people have been telling me that they are excited for me to come down. I never really felt it because I’m from Ohio. I didn’t think they were that excited because they didn’t expect me to be a part of this recruiting class.”

Rodney Cummings, a 28-year old from Miami, is one of many fans excited to see Anderson in a Hurricane uniform.

“I’m very excited that he’s coming,” Cummings said. “I like what he brings--he has speed, can cover very well, and he’s a ballhawk. I think one of the next best defensive backs coming through Miami like Ed Reed, Sean Taylor, and Bennie Blades. I think he has that much ability.”

Anderson is thankful of the support he has received from the ‘U’ family and supporters.

“Basically I just want to thank all of the Canes fans for their support,” Anderson said. “I’m hearing a lot of how excited everybody is for me to come down there and I’m just excited to play. I’ll do my best to bring the ‘U’ back.”

If he plays the way he is capable, Hurricane fans will be thankful for Anderson.

And the Buckeye nation will watch from afar.

Recruiting Blog: 6/24

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* The Hurricanes signed a big class back in February and it's expected that a few of those kids won't qualify for admission in the fall. Players who have indicated to us that they're still working to become qualified include OL Tavadis Glenn, TE Chase Ford, DE Kelvin Cain, OL Jermaine Barton, and CB Jeremy Davis. Some of these players may end up getting through the clearinghouse and others not listed may not. We will keep you posted.

* Miami's annual summer camp took place two weekends ago but it wasn't a big event for the top prospects. Some of them showed up and performed well. RB Sony Michel is going to be a freshman this fall but is already being talked about as one of the next great ones from south Florida. He was there and likes Miami a lot. Odell Beckham from Louisiana was there and performed well. He has an offer from LSU and will be tough getting out of his home state, despite the trip down here. CB commit Albert Louis-Jean worked out some and was considered a standout by some of his peers. For whatever reason, Randy Shannon doesn't make this camp a recruiting priority like Florida does with Friday Night Lights, for example.



* There were bad reports going around this report that WR Davaris Daniels committed to Miami. That's not true and Daniels never said so. While we were the first to report of his interest in Miami and vice-versa back in January, we don't believe Daniels had a chance to commit to the Canes. With Eli Rogers and Phil Dorsett already in the fold, there will likely be just one more WR in this class. The top two priorities appear to be Sammy Watkins and George Farmer. Watkins grew up a Miami fan and has the Canes in his top two along with Florida. Farmer has Miami near the top of his list and the main competition there is USC. Aubrey Hill is recruiting Watkins and Micheal Barrow is recruiting Farmer. If both players wanted to come, I think they'd find room but getting just one is a lot more likely at this point.



* One of the next commitments could come from Tampa DE Anthony Chickillo. The son of a former Cane, Anthony has favored Miami all along and will likely make his choice public before or at the beginning of the season. Miami is considered the major front-runner for the 4-star talent.



* Speaking of the Tampa area, WR Andre Davis recently narrowed his list down to seven and Miami made the cut. While Miami's his dream school and he'd likely come here if given the chance, don't expect him in this class. Another Tampa area WR, Ja'Juan Story, is seemingly getting recruited harder by the Canes right now.



* If Chickillo isn't Miami's next commitment, it'll likely be LB/DE Nick Menocal. At 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds, Menocal dominates small school competition at Belen Jesuit and has impressive combine numbers. Miami offered him a few weeks ago and the Canes are his dream school. He could grow into a defensive end but is definitely a kid the Canes will likely land in the coming weeks/months.



* There's been a lot of talk about the recruiting status of 5-star OL Seantrel Henderson from the Class of 2010. Henderson visited Miami last recruiting season but came in no better than third place after USC landed him in February. Ohio State was close behind. Henderson hasn't qualified for USC yet and could spend a semester in prep school. If that happens, Henderson will have to go through the entire recruiting process again and Miami would likely re-enter the mix. I believe it's unlikely that he ends up at USC but probably just as unlikely that he ends up at Miami. My guess is Ohio State.



* There's been a lot of talk about DL Ego Ferguson lately, another 2010 prospect. Rumors have him possibly headed to Miami. I have no idea why these rumors have started. Ferguson has signed with LSU and is fully expected to be on the Tiger roster this fall.



* Ferguson was a player who had a lot of family in Miami and that's also the case with Georgia DL Stephen Tuitt, who recently landed a Miami offer. He has a lot of interest in the Canes but Georgia Tech appears to be the front-runner at this time. Keep an eye on the Canes, though, as they could make a big move soon.
