* QB commit Teddy Bridgewater led his team to the 7on7 national championship in Alabama over the weekend. Scout recruiting analysts who were there all agreed that Teddy was the top QB at the event. I was told that he was doing some serious recruiting for UM, too. He wore a UM, threw up the U several times, and was talking about the Canes all weekend. WR Eli Rogers had a solid but unspectacular performance.

* There was a lot of talk coming from the event about 4-star TE Chris Barnett. Once an Oklahoma commitment, Barnett has backed off that and opened things up. Miami was one of his first offers and he was talking up the Canes a lot to various players at this event. He says the Canes are in great shape but I'm wondering how much room there is for him. The Canes just signed 4 tight ends and the top prospect appears to be Nick O'Leary, who has Miami at the top of his list. Barnett has a lot of interest but it'll be interesting to see how that gets handled based on the number situation at the position.


* There has been a lot of talk about 5-star OL Seantrel Henderson (Class of 2010) lately. Henderson visited Miami last recruiting season but signed with USC. Like the 5 kids who didn't report for summer school at UM last week, Henderson didn't report at USC. He still has time to make it for the fall semester but from what I hear, don't expect him to ever wear a Trojan uniform. If he qualifies, he's locked in to USC's scholarship. If he doesn't qualify, he'll likely attend a prep school for a semester and then have to go through the entire recruiting process again. The two schools who seemed closest to USC were Ohio State and Miami. As of now, however, he's not committed anywhere and has a valid LOI to attend USC.

* Speaking of the 5 players who didn't enroll for summer school last week, OLB Kelvin Cain informed me today that he received a qualifying test score. It's too late for him to enroll for summer so he reports August 4th. The players who are still trying to become eligible for the fall are CB Jeremy Davis, DE David Perry, and OL Tavadis Glenn. DL Delmar Taylor has already decided to attend a Juco. We'll continue to monitor their progress.Mike Bakas

DE has 20+ offers, names leader

Secret Commit Alert!!!
B.J. Dubose has become one of the most heavily recruited defensive end prospects in the state of Florida and the Oakland Park (Northeast) standout has a favorite. Read on to see what he's saying about that, the recruiting process, and more.

B.J. Dubose has over 20 scholarship offers. Fresh off a national 7on7 championship with the South Florida Express, Dubose talked about the latest on the recruiting front.
"There are a lot of schools recruiting me but the ones I'm focused on the most are UM, Rutgers, Syracuse, and Florida," Dubose said. "The one I like most right now is the University of Miami. I guess they are the most interested and I've always been real interested in them."

Dubose, 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds, has always watched the Hurricanes and talked more about his interest in them.

"I like Miami," he said. "I love the coaches, they are good people I can talk to them and feel comfortable. It's close to home and they have what I want to study."

Dubose took in a few unofficial visits in recent days as well.

"It was fun getting out and seeing different places," he said. "Still, UM stands out to me. The biggest things I'm gonna be looking at are the academics and how I am with the coaches."

Henderson's addition would be huge for Canes
Remember what Bryant McKinnie meant to the Hurricanes offensive line? Consider the potential addition of Seantrel Henderson just as large.

Although a few sources at UM as of late Tuesday night could not confirm Henderson (the nation's No. 1 high school offensive lineman) was already on his way to South Florida after being released from USC earlier in the day, indications are it might not be long before he becomes the last addition to the 2010 signing class.

Apparently, the only hold up at this point according to a UM source, is that the Canes have to wait until Wednesday -- when he is officially cleared by the NCAA -- to talk to him. After that, Henderson has to make it through UM admissions and the clearinghouse (so it probably will take a couple days before UM makes it official). Henderson would then likely start classes in August. I've been told UM, which looked like they would be about four over the 85 scholarship limit, has a scholarship to give to Henderson. By being released from his national letter of intent by USC, Henderson does not have to sit out this season.

Henderso, who was reportedly in Miami according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press this past weekend, hasn't spoken to any reporters in weeks and his father, who did most of the interviews for him late in the recruiting game, hasn't been answering his cell phone the last couple days. While there is likely some wiggle room (he could always back out and go to Ohio State), the word is Miami is his first choice.

Henderson (6-8, 337) is the type of lineman that every coach dreams of. Described by Sports Illustrated as "the most polished linemen of the past decade," he would become the most highly touted lineman to sign with the Canes. McKinnie, drafted seventh overall by the Vikings in the 2002 draft, was the anchor of UM's national title team. Henderson is of the same ilk, a player most expect could at least contribute right away if not start at left tackle and keep Jacory Harris' jersey free of grass and blood stains for the next couple years.

If he comes, it would also mean young, perhaps, less talented players like Ben Jones and Jermaine Johnson (slotted to compete for the starting right tackle job) will not have to be depended on to carry a huge load right away. All three could potentially all end up splitting playing time until one emerges. Neither Jones or Johnson has played much yet and are still developing.

Couple more tidbits...

> I was told the likelihood of freshman cornerback Jeremy Davis getting into school in August was "about 40 percent." Davis (5-11, 162) is one of four DBs in UM's 2010 class.

> It is expected that offensive tackle Tavadis Glenn, who attended an academy school his senior year while playing for Jacksonville Raines, will end up at prep school.

The Hurricanes are potentially on the verge landing of a late addition to the 2010 recruiting class.


A big addition.


All signs are pointing toward tackle Seantrel Henderson, the nation’s No. 1 recruit, signing with the UM. According to a source close to the situation, the announcement could come early as Wednesday.


To recap, the 6-8, 320-pound Henderson was the USA Today national player of the year his senior season at Cretin-Derham Hall in St. Paul, Minn. He signed with USC after strongly considering Miami and Ohio State. When USC was handed stronger than expected NCAA sanctions, Henderson began to doubt his decision.


On Tuesday, he was officially released from his letter of intent.


Henderson and his family have been silent for months, but his interest in UM is no secret. It was truly a last-minute decision when he chose the Trojans on National Signing Day.
Earlier in the day, there was even a report he had decided on UM.


Nothing is official, but stay tuned …

Hard-hitting Miami Jackson safety Robenson Therezie admits to having schools that stick out in his recruitment.
“You know I’m still thinking about my favorite five,” said Therezie. “There are a few schools that stand out like the University of Miami, Alabama, Tennessee, Auburn, those schools.”

According to Therezie each of those programs are recruiting him as a safety. Those are solid programs with a tradition of winning, exactly why Therezie is liking that group of four schools at this time.

“They have a good program, a good winning team, and they have great coaching staffs,” said Therezie.

With the hometown Hurricanes in the mix for Therezie’s services, it seems the possibility of playing locally would be luring. Therezie seemed indifferent on the notion.

“The possibility is open, it doesn’t really matter to me. I would like to go out away, but I don’t mind playing at home.”

Even though there are school that stand out, the 5-foot-10, 195-pound Therezie doesn’t plan to commit anywhere until the end of the season. Until the season gets underway, the talented 2011 prospect has planned a couple unofficial visits to a pair of schools that stand out in his mind.

“I plan on going to Alabama, I guess next week, and Auburn.”

The beginning of the summer Therezie has been keeping busy with 7-on-7 tournaments. The Nike 7-on-7 show a couple weeks ago, Therezie got a chance to improve his coverage skills against talented Northwester receiver Eli Rogers. Therezie was matched up with Rogers man-to-man in the slot.

“That’s the stuff I need to work on. As a matter of fact I had called him up to my side because you know the other receivers weren’t really doing anything. So I called Eli Rogers over to see where I was at.

“I don’t need too much work in one-on-ones, it’s just some techniques to help me keep my eyes out of the backfield. Other than that, I’m pretty good. Eli Rogers is a pretty good receiver, that’s why I wanted to go against him, to get some work.”

Therezie and his Miami Jackson teammates advanced to the championship round of the Nike 7-on-7 to be held July 17.

Two lead for five-star ATH?
Five-star ATH Quan Bray of Georgia (No. 11 in the ESPNU 150) officially is still in the process of narrowing down his list, but he may have tipped his hand in a conversation with Erik Stinnett of ESPN affiliate CrimsonConfidential.com.

Bray initially said he had no leaders, but when asked what schools have a chance to earn distinction as a leader, Bray said, "LSU and Miami." That's it? "Yeah, LSU and Miami."

It wasn't until Stinnett specifically brought up Alabama (he writes for a Tide site, after all) that Bray added: "Oh, yeah, Alabama's still up there. They're up there."

Bray is primarily being recruited as a WR, and the Tide already have four committed in the 2011 class. The Tigers and the Canes have just two apiece but have other offers to WRs out there, so Bray will face some competition no matter where he goes. Moreover, neither Alabama nor LSU has a QB committed yet in the current class.

If Georgia really isn't in the mix at all, it would be another blow to Mark Richt's Dream Team, which thus far includes none of the state's top 10 prospects.

After a second spin through the recruiting process, Seantrel Henderson, the top-ranked offensive line recruit in the class of 2010, has chosen Miami.

Henderson, who originally signed with USC, chose the Hurricanes on Friday after the Trojans released him from his National Letter of Intent earlier this week. On National Signing Day in February, Henderson announced his decision to sign with USC on live television. Friday afternoon, Henderson told the world by changing his Facebook profile picture to a Miami logo. "It's all about the U," Henderson wrote on his Facebook page.

Henderson is a 6-foot-8, 300-pound offensive tackle from Cretin-Derham Hall in St. Paul, Minn. During his first recruitment, he was fond of Miami because it is the alma mater of his favorite offensive linemen, Minnesota Vikings tackle Bryant McKinnie. Henderson also considered Ohio State and Notre Dame during his original recruitment.

Henderson delayed signing with USC originally because he wanted to know what sanctions the NCAA's committee on infractions might hand down. Henderson signed March 23, more than six weeks before the committee on infractions hit the Trojans with a two-year bowl ban and significant scholarship reductions. After the sanctions were announced, Henderson remained in Minnesota. USC coaches flew to Minnesota twice to try to convince Henderson to enroll as planned in Los Angeles, but to no avail.

There were hints as early as this past weekend that Henderson was leaning toward the Hurricanes. Teddy Bridgewater, a quarterback committed to sign with Miami in the class of 2011, said Sunday that Henderson had requested his phone number to talk about Miami.

Rivals.com and Scout.com ranked Henderson the No. 1 offensive lineman in the class of 2010. Rivals.com ranked him the No. 2 overall prospect in the nation.

Miami moves ahead for four-star S
For some reason, Miami was slow to offer four-star S Robenson Therezie of Florida even though he plays in the Canes' backyard. But since a late-May offer, The U has been steadily climbing Therezie's list. Now he tells Nate Adelson of ESPN affiliate InsidetheU.com that Miami indeed sits atop his final five, which is rounded out by Alabama, Tennessee, Florida and Auburn.

Therezie said he will take officials to all five schools before announcing, and that early playing time will be the biggest factor in his decision. In that regard, the Canes may be at a disadvantage, with rising sophomores Ray Ray Armstrong and Vaughn Telemaque and redshirt freshman Jamal Reid as their top three safeties.

"My thing is that I want to play pretty much right away," said Therezie, who hasn't been to Coral Gables since camping there in 2009. "To be honest, staying close for college doesn't really matter. I could stay close, but I don't feel like it's something that I have to do."

Perhaps the coaches could convince Therezie that at least one of the aforementioned safeties will enter the draft early, which could open up a starting position for Therezie after a one-year apprenticeship.

Even before he enrolls, UM already is reaping the benefits of Miami Northwestern quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's oral commitment. He not only led the South Florida Express to the 7-on-7 national championship this month, but he's doing a sales job on recruits. ``Athletes cling to him,'' Express coach Brett Goetz said. ``Because of his performance, it could help Miami tremendously.''
Goetz said Texas' Chris Barnett , rivals.com's 15th-best tight end in the 2011 class, recently decommitted from Oklahoma and is strongly considering UM after talking to Bridgewater. He said Bridgewater made a case for Beverly Hills' Greg Townsend (the nation's top defensive end), and Goetz said USC oral commitment/elite receiver Victor Blackwell now plans to visit Miami after talking with Bridgewater. Coveted Coral Gables linebacker Denzel Perryman also likes Bridgewater, which helps UM's chances.

DE Williams: UM Close to Greatness
Jul. 10, 2010

By: Nate Adelson

Miami was one of many schools to offer defensive end Ishaq Williams from Lincoln High in Brooklyn, New York, in February when his stock was on the rise.

About five months later, Miami remains as one of many schools that have a chance with Williams (6-5, 225), ESPNU’s 25th ranked player in the country.

“Everything is going well with Miami right now but everybody is still in the race,” Williams said. “No, I actually haven’t talked to Coach Stoutland recently. I’m still interested in Miami though, definitely.”

Williams has been attracted to Miami from an early age and he believes that the Canes are very close to where they were about ten years ago.

“I think I was attracted to Miami close to when I started playing football,” Williams said. “They were one of the first teams I saw when I moved to New York from Philadelphia. I fell in love with them from there, I mean they were winning. I liked the environment and I told my father that I liked them. We took a trip down there one time and I just fell in love with the campus and the team. I feel that every team goes through tough stages, like my team won only one game last year. This year we went to the quarterfinals so every team has rough years. I think Miami is really close to being great again.”

Williams plans a bunch of unofficial visits this summer and all five official visits before he is ready to make a commitment.

“This summer, I plan to get down to Florida (Miami and Florida), Alabama, California (USC and UCLA), and Notre Dame,” Williams said. “I’ll take all my official visits too but I don’t know where yet. I’m not sure when I’m going to narrow it down but I’m not close to making a commitment. It might be on signing day actually.”

Williams mentioned Penn State, Alabama, Notre Dame, Texas Tech, and UCLA as the schools doing the best job of staying in touch with him.

With so many schools still on his radar, Williams admits that he doesn’t even know how to decide which schools are right for him and which ones aren’t.

“It’s really hard, I haven’t quite figured that out yet so when I get that, I might know where I’m going, but I’m not there yet,” Williams chuckled. “My family and my coach, they’ll be the ones who help me the most with that.”

As far as the recruiting process in general has been, Williams sees it as some sort of double edged sword.

“It’s starting to get annoying but it’s necessary and it’s an honor really that a lot of people care what I think,” Williams said. “No, I never thought it would get like this. I think I’ve put my coach and my father in front of myself, so they’re getting stuff before I do. I’m sure that’s helped limit what does get to me.

LB Johnson: I Can See Myself At UM
Jul. 11, 2010

By: Nate Adelson

Linebacker A.J. Johnson from Gainesville High in Gainesville, Georgia, is certainly one of the most productive players in the country, regardless of position.

Johnson (6-2, 225) has been a tackling machine the past two years with a total of 335 stops, 9 sacks, and 3 interceptions as his team compiled a 26-2 record.

In fact, Johnson has helped turn the Gainesville Red Elephants into one of the top schools in Georgia over the past few years.

“We’re at a good point and we keep improving each year so we might be able to win the whole thing this season,” Johnson said. “When I was a freshman, we had a new defensive coordinator come in. The first year was kind of slow, but the last two years we had one of the top defenses around. We didn’t have a huge stack of division one players but we had good athletes who can play in college. We had division one guys like Blake Sims (Alabama) and Tai-ler Jones (Notre Dame) on offense, but our defense just flowed to the ball. We had one of the best linebacker corps in the state of Georgia and our coaches and players just came together.”

On the recruiting front, Johnson always has a good idea of what schools he likes as he listed off his top three followed by three more.

“My top three right now is Clemson, Tennessee, and Florida,” Johnson said. “I also like Georgia Tech, Miami, and Auburn because they’re recruiting me the hardest after the first three. I’m supposed to be going to Florida in a couple weeks for Friday Night Lights. For official visits, I’ll go to my top three and then I have to pick two more. Most likely Miami will be one of the two that I choose.”

Johnson really wants to see Miami in person because he has already been to pretty much every other school that he’s looking at.

“All these other schools I like, I’ve been to but I’ve never been to Miami,” Johnson said. “I could see myself playing at Miami and that’s a school I would go to. I’ve heard it’s a great place, it’s on an island, so that sounds pretty cool.”

Johnson has been in touch with Coach McGriff on a couple different occasions but none of them have been all that recent.

“Coach McGriff came to my school during the year so I talked to him then,” Johnson said. “That was awhile back and I talked to him a couple times on the phone after that but it wasn’t anytime recently. He said it’s a great place to play being on an island and their real strong academically. He said I got the Miami swagger already, things like that. He talked about the fan support too so it was just a lot of different stuff.”

UM Remains Involved With Newberry
Jul. 12, 2010

By: Nate Adelson

Fort Pierce Central defensive end Giorgio Newberry had plenty of scholarship offers before receiving one from Miami in May.

However, the Canes are doing their best to make up for lost time with Newberry (6-5, 249) led by the efforts of linebackers coach Micheal Barrow.

“Yea I’ve been in touch with Coach Barrow, I’ve been talking to him for a good little while now,” Newberry said. “The last time I heard from him, he actually called me when he was on vacation. He’s a pretty cool guy and I like hearing what he has to say.”

Coach Barrow is aided in his pursuit of Newberry by Miami commitment Marcus Jackson, who attends nearby Vero Beach High.

“I’ve known Marcus going on a year now so we have a pretty good relationship,” Newberry said. “We’ve gone to a bunch of different camps together. Oh yea, he definitely tries to get me to Miami. He’s a die hard Miami guy so of course he’s going to let me know what’s good with them. That’s my boy, now don’t get me wrong, but I can’t get too caught up in what he says.”

Miami certainly isn’t the only school that Newberry is considering since Florida State has been high on his radar for months.

“They have a really cool coaching staff and I’ve always liked a lot of those guys,” Newberry said. “I feel like Florida State is one of the places I could really end up at. I’ve been there three times and I always get a family feeling when I take a visit there.”

Newberry has never been in a rush with the recruiting process despite his constantly growing list of suitors.

“I’m open now but I’m going to cut it down a little bit by the end of the summer,” Newberry said. “I’m not for sure but I think a couple visits will pop up before I rule anyone out so I have to talk that over with my coaches. My official visits will be to schools like LSU, Tennessee, Notre Dame, places more far away. I can just drive to the in-state schools anytime I want to check them out.”

Newberry, who had 41 tackles and 3 sacks last year, has made it a priority to check out a lot of schools so he can feel informed when decision time arrives.

“You always have to check out schools because you can’t pick somewhere just off a name or what you heard about it,” Newberry said. “You have to see what it’s really like to get that clear picture in your mind. When you’re there, you can ask people who attend that school, like the players, about the truth.”
