I wonder why were getting so many options at wideout... in one year. I keep on saying it, a big tight end option would give whoever the passer next year is all around good options... because a young passers favorite target is a tight end

Kayne Farquharson bio

Talk about it in The Storm Center
Never miss breaking news on Miami sports and recruiting. Sign-up for CaneSport.com Wireless Text Alerts sent right to your cell phone!

El Camino (Calif.) Junior College WR Kayne Farquharson signed with Miami in December and will be on campus in May after finishing up a couple of classes at Miami-Dade Community College.


While Farquharson is happy to be back in his hometown, perhaps the saddest person to see him leave California was his junior college coach, John Featherstone.

Featherstone has 22 years of coaching experience at the school and has worked with numerous All-Americans and pro players.

Among the pro receivers he's coached are Antonio Chapman, Latario Rachal and Russell Shaw.

"I think Kayne has a chance at the NFL, I really do," Featherstone said. "He's not a real quick guy, is more of a long strider guy, but he has no problem with press coverage because he's a physical player.

"He's not a chest catcher. He's a hand catcher. He'll go up sometimes and catch the ball with one hand ... he does it all. He's a fearless receiver. He's never afraid not to catch a ball. He'll catch over the middle, is a great blocker.

"Does he have the blazing speed? All I can say is he's fast enough to beat you deep. He has deceptive speed."

It was Farquharson's speed ... or a perceived lack of it ... that Featherstone said kept nearby USC from offering him a scholarship.

"(USC coach) Steve Sarkisian was our quarterbacks coach here five years ago," Featherstone said. "He liked Kayne. USC was very interested, they just weren't sure if he was quite fast enough to be a Dwayne Jarrett guy. They wound up not offering, decided not to take a receiver in the class.

"Pete Carroll asked me, `Is he fast enough? He's a long strider.' I said, `He's fast enough.' I think it's a great fit for Miami and for Kayne."

What Farquharson has going for him in addition to his 6-foot-2 height and athelticism is his confidence in his own abilities.

A sample: When asked about a statement made by a CaneSport.com message board poster that Farquharson is already better than any receiver on UM's 2006 roster, Farquharson said, "I have the most respect for the rest of the wide receiver corps, but I'm coming in to dominate. I'm not coming in to be a possession receiver."

Featherstone's take on Farquharson's confidence level: "I've always said there's a fine line between confidence and c*ckiness, and he's much more toward the confident side. I like kids that have a little swagger. There are some kids that have swagger and get in trouble, and some that have swagger and don't get in trouble. And Kayne never gets in trouble. He's one of the nicest and best kids I've had in 22 years. Kayne is such a fun-loving kid."

It was Featherstone that was the first experienced eye to watch Farquharson play football - Farquharson had never played high school ball before showing up at the school.

"I can tell after one or two days what potentially a guy has as an athlete," Featherstone said. "What I liked about Kayne is he had a nice long stride and he caught everything with his hands."

As a freshman Farquharson caught 23 passes for over 500 yards with six touchdowns. He also returned a punt 60 yards for a score and scored on a reverse.

This year he had 51 catches for 904 yards and nine touchdowns.

"He led by example," Featherstone said. "He is a tremendous worker, has a great work ethic. He's real good at working hard in the weight room, in practice.

"We ran the ball more this year than the year before. As a freshman he had an opportunity to do more because we threw more. Our quarterback that year went to Oregon State. Our quarterback this year was just learning the game. With the quarterback we had the year before, Kayne would have caught about 80 balls this year."

Lee Chambers bioVideo highlights

Talk about it in The Storm Center
Never miss breaking news on Miami sports and recruiting. Sign-up for CaneSport.com Wireless Text Alerts sent right to your cell phone!

Coffeeville (MS) High School RB Lee Chambers is down to a final three of Miami, Alabama and Southern Miss.


And he says one school is the frontrunner.

"Miami has a slight lead," he said. "On my visit [last weekend] I had a great time. I fit in real well. It's the U. Everyone loves the U. It's all about the U. I loved it down there. It just felt like a great fit for me."

Asked whether, if Signing Day were today, he would be inking with the Canes, Chambers says, "[The lead] is not big enough for me to sign with them right now."

Still, UM can thank head coach Randy Shannon for their current status as the team to beat.

Shannon took an in-home visit with the Chambers family that went extremely well earlier this week.

"It went great," said Chambers, a 5-foot-11, 189-pounder with 4.43-second speed. "All the head coaches that have made in-home visits, I've never seen my mom just click and be able to talk with a coach like she did with him.

"Coach Shannon was talking about Miami, how I fit in, that it's not what people are always saying about it -- it's a private school in Coral Gables. He said they're looking for a 1-2 punch at the running back spot - a speed back and a power back. Javarris [James] is a great back and strong, but they want a back with breakaway speed and he said I can be that back. He sees me as an all-purpose back."

How much of an impact will mom have on Chambers' final decision?

"She has a great deal of impact," he said. "She's not behind any one school, though. She said she wants me to go wherever the best is for me."

Chambers says he is waiting until signing day to announce a decision. An 8 a.m. press conference is tentatively scheduled.

"There's going to be a lot of newspapers at my school -- we're having a little press conference set up," Chambers said.

Coaching Players For Life

By George F. Will
Sunday, February 4, 2007; Page B07

MIAMI -- Occasionally -- very occasionally -- a football person says something that punctures the fog of George Patton-style rhetoric that football people emit. Before a Super Bowl in the 1970s (the MCMLXXs, for those of you in a Super Bowl frame of mind), Dallas Cowboys running back Duane Thomas asked a subversive question about the game: "If it's the ultimate, how come they're playing it again next year?"

But most football people, and especially football coaches, are of the "Football Is Not a Matter of Life and death -- It's More Important Than That" school of thought. However, when Randy Shannon, recently named head coach of the University of Miami Hurricanes, says that football can be a matter of life and death, that is not hyperbole, it is autobiography.

Shannon, 40, grew up in Miami's Liberty City, which is what sociologists and other refined thinkers call a challenging urban environment. Shannon was 3 when his father was murdered by one of his friends. "They had an argument," Shannon says matter-of-factly. Two of Shannon's brothers and a sister died, from cocaine and AIDS. By age 16, Shannon was a father. He could easily have been on a path to a prison or a cemetery. Instead, because of football, he went to the University of Miami and became the first member of his family to earn a college degree.

After a brief NFL career with the Cowboys, he went into coaching, and now he is hopscotching around the country recruiting high school seniors, many of whom think college football is a certain path to the NFL. "That," says Shannon, "is the mentality that has to change." Fewer than 2 percent of even Division I college football players will have NFL careers, and most of those who do will be out of the game by the time they are 30 -- the average NFL career lasts less than four years.

The Post's Amy Shipley reports that the University of Miami has more players -- 42 -- on NFL rosters than any other school. Miami's main rival -- the Florida State Seminoles (a T-shirt favored by Miami students reads: "I think, therefore I am not a 'Nole") -- is second with 41. The University of Florida ranks seventh with 35. But in the past 10 years, those three teams have had, combined, more than 1,000 players, all of them exceptional athletes but most of them not of NFL caliber. Which is why Shannon says that when visiting the home of a potential recruit, "I talk to the parents about everything but football."

On a recent day, Shannon was in the Palm Beach area recruiting a wide receiver and then was off to Omaha to make sure that a very large lineman was still eager to be a Hurricane.

Because South Florida is the incubator of so much high school talent (skill positions, Shannon says; for linemen, look to the Midwest, hence the Nebraska trip), during the off-season many NFL players come home to train at the University of Miami's facilities. Shannon says his players "see the fancy cars, the gold chains," so as he takes over Miami's football program, he plans to "come in with a stern attitude."

Stern adults got Shannon to the peak of his profession at age 40. A fourth-grade teacher told him, "You're very smart -- don't let anyone tell you different." A fifth-grade teacher, disapproving his choice of clothes one day, said, "Don't ever come to school like that again." When he was in junior high school, his football coach took the team to play a team in a juvenile detention center, a sobering experience.

Shannon's rules for his players include: If you miss a class, you don't start the next game. Fall below a certain grade-point average, you can't set foot off campus. A conservatively dressed man, with the elegant hands of a surgeon or pianist, Shannon wants his players to learn "how to respect life," so when "they leave the university and the football program, they will go with confidence." They will go, all of them, having taken a public speaking course.

Duffy Daugherty, who coached Michigan State from 1954 through 1972, was an aphorist ("Football is not a contact sport, it's a collision sport. Dancing is a contact sport.") and a realist. Because of alumni demands for football perfection, Daugherty said: "A football coach's main problem is that he is responsible to irresponsible people." Shannon, who like 80 percent of his players is African American, feels responsible to, and for, them.

Tyler Horn bio

Memphis (TN) University School OL Tyler Horn committed to coach Randy Shannon earlier this morning following an official visit to Miami.

"After 10 minutes at Miami I knew this was where I wanted to go," Horn said. "It was that `it' factor, that feel.

"I'm glad Miami liked me. It's a prime-time school."

Horn recounted how he told Shannon he was coming to UM: "My parents were there, we had a conversation. I said everything except `I commit.' Then I just said, `I'm going to come here.' He said `That's great.' We talked about different aspects of football, redshirting, the two-a-day stuff. He said `Don't overwork yourself right now, enjoy your senior year in high school.'"

Horn spent a lot of time with new line coach Jeff Stoutland on the visit.

"I like him a lot," said Horn, a 6-foot-5, 290-pounder. "He knows his stuff. I played tackle in high school but he wants me at center. I'm only 17, could grow another two inches before two-a-days. I've been the backup center the last two years and was center my sophomore year (coming off the bench). I did fine at center."

Horn said he spent a lot of time with fellow commitments Orlando Franklin and Harland Gunn on the visit.

"We got along real well, which is good because we'll be a close-knit group," Horn said.

His host was Matt Pipho.

"He was great -- they couldn't have picked a better host," Horn said.

Of his goals at Miami, Horn said, "It's a cliche, but to be the best player I can, to help the team out any way possible. It's an honor to be part of the Miami Hurricanes football team."

Horn did not have any major offers this recruiting season other than a late offer from Miami.

Why was he so lightly recruited?

There are a few possibilities.

University School coach Bobby Alston says the fact that Horn only weighed 250 pounds as a junior made schools overlook him.

Horn gained 40 pounds before his senior year, but then didn't have a chance to show his newfound body off to colleges.

"In the summer I went to the Arkansas Camp and broke my hand, so I couldn't go to any more camps," Horn said. "During the season I was being recruited by Louisville a little bit. But Miami is the best school that has been interested in me."

Memphis University School plays a difficult schedule that includes Brentwood Academy, which has supplied more players to SEC schools than any other school in the nation.

"Our league has had some outstanding players have come through and have done well in college," Alston said. "That's why we were so surprised the SEC guys missed the boat on Tyler.

"We feel like he's a guy that has a tremendous upside that people have missed out on a bunch. The first person who I think really realized it was coach [Mario] Cristobal. When coach [Jeff] Stoutland came by and saw him on tape he went away with the same impression as Cristobal. This is a young kid, only 17, and he is 6-5, 290, is very athletic, has good feet. We never could figure out how he was missing out [on getting recruited by major college programs]."

Horn started on his school's state championship team as a junior and played significantly when the team won the title his sophomore year.

He was voted the team's MVP after this season.

"He's the only offensive lineman I've ever had who, when the offensive team voted on MVP, he was almost a unanimous selection," Alston said. "That shows how important he was to us."

Hoover (AL) High School DT Kerry Murphy was an Alabama commitment before taking a visit to Miami this weekend.


Now he says a different school has the lead.

"It's at least 60-40 Miami," Murphy said. "The visit went outstanding, great."

Murphy says he's announcing a final decision at a press conference Tuesday afternoon. It's tentatively scheduled for 1 p.m.

He is choosing between UM and Alabama.

Asked if Miami has a decent chance of landing him at that press conference, Murphy said, "Hell, yeah. I enjoyed myself so much down there. I like everything there. It's working with NFL players in the summer, a lot of exposure (to pros) in the summer, especially at a position like defensive tackle."

Murphy was hosted by Joe Joseph.

Murphy says he met with coach Randy Shannon last night.

"He was talking to me about wherever I want to go, to go there," Murphy said. "He isn't trying to push me like all these other people are. He's just being straight up with me -- `Go where you want to go.'"

Murphy doesn't deny that he expressed to other recruits on the visit that he planned on being a Hurricane.

"There was one time I was like `Oh man, I've got to come down here,'" Murphy said.

But he says it's not a done deal.

Murphy says he won't be consulting anyone as he seeks to nail down a final decision.

"I'm not going to talk to anybody because Alabama is so close and Miami is so far, so it won't be balanced out," he said. "I'll just reflect on my visits."

If it's based solely on visits, the Canes will win out.

"I'd say the Miami visit was better because it's in Florida, in a different state, which I like," Murphy said. "I'd say the best highlight was, it's strange, but the film and just learning that they run the same stuff that we run [on defense]. Coach [Clint]Hurtt told me I already know 80 percent of what they're going to do.

"I talked with coach Hurtt a lot when I was down there. He wrapped things up. I was watching film with him. Coaches said I can come in there and, if I bust my tail, which I have no other choice but to do, that I can play in there with the other guys [and get early playing time]."

* Murphy said he enjoyed a sneak peek at Miami's new uniforms along with the other recruits.

"I've got a picture of it on my phone," he said. "They look good. At Hoover we have the same design as theirs, but now they have the stripe coming up over the chest. It's hard to explain."

Charles Clay bio

Talk about it in The Storm Center
Never miss breaking news on Miami sports and recruiting. Sign-up for CaneSport.com Wireless Text Alerts sent right to your cell phone!

Little Rock (AR) Central High School athlete Charles Clay can do it all.


He projects as anything from a running back to defensive lineman, linebacker or even strong safety at the next level.

Clay says the Hurricanes see him starting out at linebacker, and this talented 6-foot-3, 222-pounder with 4.55-second speed took an official visit to Coral Gables this weekend.

"Miami started recruiting me last week," said Clay, who was originally supposed to visit Tulsa this weekend. "Coach (Tim) Walton, I'd talked to him a long time ago, but they said they'd just got my highlight tape in and wanted me to visit."

Clay received a Cane offer last Wednesday.

The only other schools that have offered are Tulsa, Arkansas, Arkansas State and University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff.

While Clay says his UM visit "went real well," he says he did not commit.

"As of now Miami is my favorite, not by a lot, but by a little bit," Clay said. "My parents want me to stay closer to home, but they want me to go where I'll get a good education. My dad didn't get to go on the visit with me, so we have to talk it over.

"I probably won't decide today - it'll be Monday or Tuesday. I still have to talk to my parents about it."

Clay's father was the starting tight end for Arkansas in the 1970's, which gives Clay a link to that school.

Clay says the Cane visit gives UM a good shot.

"My favorite part was getting to see the city and spend time with the players," Clay said. "My host was Spencer Adkins - he was real cool. We got along real well.

"When I met with coach [Randy] Shannon yesterday he was just saying they wanted me there and to take my time making a decision, that he didn't want to rush me. Coach Shannon said he likes the fact I can play a lot of positions, that I'm an athlete and have good feet."

Clay flew under the radar of many major programs because he didn't begin playing high school ball until his junior year.

"I made him come out for the football team that year," a.ssistant coach Clarence Finley said. "I played high school ball with his dad. His mother wanted him to concentrate on his grades, so he didn't play until his junior year -- he was a great tailback in the youth leagues.

"We finally convinced him to come out his junior year. He plays running back and tight end for us and a little defensive back. He's going to be a steal for someone. He's a big, strong kid."

Clay finished his senior year with over 800 rushing yards and 200 receiving yards despite missing three games due to a separated shoulder.
