Golden offers insights to the Miami Hurricanes' freshman class
By Barry Jackson
UM coach Al Golden still beams like a proud father talking about his first recruiting class. And he needs immediate help from some.
With practice starting Aug. 6, all but three freshmen are on campus. Taylor Gadbois (the class’ only offensive lineman), Antonio Kinard and Corey King haven’t enrolled, but UM is optimistic about their 2011 availability. During a summer chat in his office, Golden spoke on what he expects from his freshmen:

• Linebacker: “Whether on special teams or competing for a starting job, all four are going to play,” he said. He sees Coral Gables’ Denzel Perryman and Kinard (an ex-Michigan commitment who played at Hargrave Military Academy) lining up outside, where depth is shaky behind Sean Spence and Ramon Buchanan. Golden said Gionni Paul “can play inside or outside. Eddie Johnson looks like an inside linebacker.’’

Linebackers coach Micheal Barrow said Paul always wanted to go to UM — like fellow Lakeland Kathleen alum Ray Lewis — but “there was a lot of damage done” because Randy Shannon did not want him, leading Paul to commit initially to Arizona State. Barrow said Paul, who already has a U tattoo, “is a game-changer” and told Golden that pursuing him was a “no-brainer.”
Golden loves Paul’s motor (155 tackles, two interceptions and four forced fumbles as a senior) and predicts “Gionni is going to have something to say” about the middle linebacker job, where Jimmy Gaines, Kelvin Cain and Jordan Futch are competing.

Perryman (137 tackles, four sacks as a senior) “is just as good as, if not better than” fellow Coral Gables alums Jonathan Vilma and Daryl Sharpton, Gables coach Joe Montoya told Barrow. Georgia-based Johnson, 6-1, wasn’t as heavily recruited but Golden likes his size (238 pounds) and quickness. And he’s stout against the run.

• Defensive line: Coordinator Mark D’Onofrio told the ends “they need to be worried about” Anthony Chickillo (18 sacks at Tampa Alonso in 2010) because “the guy has the whole package.” So, he’ll play right away? “I hope so,” Golden said. “You want him in the foxhole with you.” Homestead’s Ricardo Williams “has good burst, long arms,” Golden said, and has bulked up. Adewale Ojomo, Olivier Vernon, Marcus Robinson, Andrew Smith and Chickillo figure to be UM’s top five ends, in some order.

Nevada’s Jalen Grimble, who originally committed to Southern California, can play end at 285 pounds, but Golden said he wants him at tackle for now. Golden warns not to underestimate tackles King (if eligible) and Darius Smith, even though they signed late for academic reasons.

NFL first-round pick “ Muhammed Wilkerson signed late with us at Temple,” Golden said. “Darius is 300 pounds, and King benches over 400, which gives them a chance to be in the mix right away.” Tackle Olsen Pierre, an early enrollee, showed flashes this spring. All will compete for time behind the clear-cut top three tackles: Marcus Forston, Curtis Porter , Micanor Regis.

• Defensive back: Thomas Finnie, UM’s second early enrollee, could seize one of the top four cornerback jobs with a good August. “Finnie works harder than anyone,” Golden said.

The staff wants to give a long look to Dallas Crawford, ESPN’s eighth-best cornerback prospect. He had 19 interceptions the past two years at South Fort Myers High, and Golden likes defensive backs who played quarterback, as Crawford did, “because that shows he has leadership skills. Dallas can play safety or corner. We like to look at players at corner first, but the safety need is a little more pressing.” Rangy safety Thurston Armbrister, a late signee from Hollywood Hills, might redshirt.

• Running back: One reason Golden isn’t fretting Storm Johnson’s departure is because he’s so high on Kevin Grooms, who will battle Maurice Hagens and Darion Hall for carries behind Lamar Miller and Mike James. “Grooms has elite burst and lateral quickness,” Golden said. “And he’s an excellent punt and kick returner.” Grooms ran for 1,400 yards at South Broward High in 2010, with six punt returns for touchdowns.

• Receiver: UM has depth, so it can be patient with Melbourne’s Rashawn Scott and Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas’ Phillip Dorsett. Spence singled out Dorsett on WQAM 560 on Friday, noting he “has made a lot of great catches” this summer. Said Golden: “It struck me how fast Phillip is. Rashawn isn’t as heralded but has good length and was an excellent red-zone receiver.”

• Specialists: Golden views the kicker job as a tossup between junior Jake Wieclaw and freshman Matt Goudis, who was Rivals.com’s 13th-best kicker after making 12 of 16 field-goal attempts as a senior, including a 55-yarder. Dalton Botts, a junior-college transfer, was brought in to punt, but his 37.5-yard average was less than Goudis’ 40.0.
Chatter

• With dorms available for only part of August, Golden will have players stay in a hotel for three weeks next month — part of a plan to create an old-school training camp similar to NFL teams.

After picking up two commitments on Sunday, Miami is now sitting at 21 total. They will sign a full class of 25 plus some in 2012 and you can see what they currently have on their commitment list here.

Miami added two good commitments on Sunday afternoon in linebacker James Burgess and wide receiver Herbert Waters. They were commitments 20 and 21 for Al Golden and UM, so they only have a small number of spots left in 2012. Here is how they are doing so far.
UM Headliners

Two of Miami's 21 commitments are in the Scout100 and they are Jelani Hamilton and Duke Johnson.

Hamilton is a 6-foot-5, 255 pound defensive lineman out of Ft. Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas and he has a chance to be special in Coral Gables. He is still growing into his frame physically and he has a lot of rook to grow, especially in his upper-body. He moves well, he changes direction well, and he could be a big defensive end or possibly move inside to play three-technique at UM.

Johnson has been a Hurricane all his life and he is ready to help UM get back to they were when he was growing up. He is an electric athlete with great stop and go ability out of the backfield. He has very good feet, he has a quick burst, and he is tougher than many think when they see his 5-foot-9, 180 pound frame. Johnson is a threat each time he touches the football and he could likely be just as good at cornerback on the defensive side of the ball.

Another in-state prospect that has a lot of raw talent is wide receiver Angelo Jean-Louis. He is a 6-foot, 190 pound athlete out of Palm Beach Central that has a lot of raw talent. He is a physical receiver with very good speed. He just has to put it all together, but if he does, he could be a big play receiver at UM.

On the other side of the ball is a defensive end and a linebacker that Scout really likes. Trent Taylor is a 6-foot-3, 245 pound end out of Lakeland (FL) Lake Gibson that just gets it done. He is not flashy, but he gets off the ball well, he is strong enough to play against the run, and he contains his edge.

Keith Brown is a linebacker that plays with Duke Johnson at Norland and like Johnson, he grew up a Hurricane. Brown when healthy last season was impressive. He is an explosive linebacker can play sideline to sideline. He moves very well and he impressed Scout with his ability to drop into coverage at the Under Armour Combine in Orlando in January too. Brown, Taylor, and Jean-Louis are all ranked in the top 225 on Scout.

Nice Out-of-State Commits

Leading the way outside of Florida for UM is linebacker Raphael Kirby from Georgia and quarterback Preston Dewey from Texas.

Kirby is a 6-foot-2, 218 pound linebacker with great instincts and speed to the ball. He is a solid tackler and he has a knack for staying involved.

Dewey is a quarterback that throws a good football. He may not have the strongest arm, but his timing and accuracy make him one of the best. He has pretty athletic too and he is someone that could be one of the bigger steals in this class.

Golden has some Sleepers

Four prospects surface when the term 'Sleeper' comes up when talking about the Miami class of 2012 and they are Ereck Flowers, Dwayne Hoilett, Reggie Northrup, and Herbert Waters.

All are three star prospects on Scout, so they are not being overlooked by us, but they could be by others.

Flowers is a 6-foot-6, 310 pound offensive lineman that will play for Norland in 2011 after transferring from Dr. Krop. He has the size that all coaches like and he has good feet. He is ranked as a tackle now, but he may be better suited to move inside to guard. That change could come on Scout this fall.

Hoilett is a 6-foot-4, 227 pound defensive end that is rangy and athletic. He is a kid that never slows down and he will take a lot of energy to the Miami defense. He has the frame to add weight and he has a lot of potential.

Northrup is a linebacker that loves to attack the football. He is a downhill backer that delivers some pop when he makes the tackle. He has a good first step and he knows how to the pursue the football.

Waters is an athlete with a lot of raw talent. He is not a blazer in the speed category, but he is quick, and fast enough. He could be effective on either side of the ball at Miami, but will likely start out at corner. He has long arms and very strong hands.

Overall Summary

Miami has a good class coming together. Some feel they may have reached for a few of their current commitments, but that won't be known for another three to four years. They have picked up some very good high school football players and athletes to this point. You put what was listed above with guys like A.J. Leggett, James Burgess, Gray Crow, and others, and you have a nice class on board. They are still involved with others like Tracy Howard, Deon Bush, and other highly touted prospects as well. Al Golden was an energetic coach and recruiter at Temple and it appears that he has kept that same attitude since arriving at Miami.

Miami just landed a commitment from one of the area's top linebacker prospects so lets take a closer look.

James Burgess committed to Miami today.
What to Like: Athletically, you'll have a hard time finding a better linebacker prospect than Burgess. He can run with most receivers and has the athleticism that rivals a lot of major college safety prospects. His production numbers have been very good in high school. He makes a lot of plays because he's very athletic, he plays hard, and he understands the game very well. He has a good football IQ, some of which probably can be attributed to the fact that his father (also named James) played linebacker at the University of Miami. He loves to compete, went to numerous camps to showcase his skills (even when he had all the offers he wanted), and he's just a kid who plays the game at a high level and with a lot of energy. It'll be hard to find kids who will be willing to out-hustle or out-work him.

What may concern you: He lacks ideal size for a major college linebacker prospect. At 6-feet and 205 pounds, he will need to gain more weight and become more physical at the point of attack. He can get away with it at the prep level but things change in college. He'll always do well in coverage and in space but when there are a lot of bodies around, he'll need to become more a.ssertive with his size and strength.

Bottom Line: He was well known to Miami fans at an early age because of his father's history as a Hurricane. Burgess earned an offer at Miami's camp last month and it was the last of pretty much all the major schools who recruit in Florida. Recruited like a four-star prospect, Burgess becomes Miami's fifth linebacker commitment and that still may not put an end to this year's LB class at The U.

James Burgess committed to Miami today and the Homestead High standout talked about his commitment to Miami, his experience in Oregon, and more.

"I committed to UM today," James Burgess said. "It started off, at The Opening, with Duke Johnson and Keith Brown talking about it. We talked about being one big family. We talked about it so much and so I decided to commit early. The recruiting process was starting to wear on me."
Burgess, 6-feet and 200 pounds, decided to make the phone call today.

"I called Al Golden and he said we're gonna do great things. He was very excited. We're gonna celebrate later. Me and Herb, we committed on three-way."

Despite the commitment, Burgess still plans on taking all of his visits.

"I'm still gonna take all my visits during the season. I don't know where yet but I'm for sure gonna take them. I haven't really been talking to any. I talk to UM the most."

Burgess is excited about the future of the Hurricane program under Golden.

"I think they're gonna make a complete 360 and put Miami back on the map."

Burgess just spent four days in Oregon at the Nike event called The Opening.

"It was a great experience, one of the best times of my life. I won first team All-Tournament and I won MVP for linebackers. Kwon, the number one linebacker in the nation was there. Keith and Kirby were there, they had committed to UM."

Finally, Burgess spoke about the critics who say he lacks ideal size.

"I don't understand it. 200 is average size for a linebacker in high school. 220 is big for high school. I can still put on 20, 30 pounds in college. Ray Lewis wrestled at 189 his senior year of high school. It's not always about how big you are. Either you can play or you can't."

Miami, obviously, believes Burgess can play.

The Hurricanes just landed a commitment from one of the area's top wide receiver prospects so lets take a closer look.

Herbert Waters committed to Miami today.
What to Like: Waters is an excellent athlete. As good as he is on the offensive side of the ball, he's probably just as good on defense. However, he has ball skills and change of direction skills to really make a difference at wide receiver, which is why he's being recruited by everyone to play there. At 6-feet and 170 pounds, he is big enough to make things happen over the middle. He runs good routes and has a burning desire to be the best player on the field every time he touches it. He was the overall MVP of a camp I hosted in south Florida earlier this year. No matter what he did, he went 100 miles per hour. He just loves the game and typifies what a lot of Dade County football players are all about -- heart and passion. He's one of the area's top wide receiver prospects.

What may concern you: The lack of production as a junior. As talented as he is, he only caught a handful of passes as a wide receiver last season. He played some running back, some quarterback, and did a lot of different things. However, he has never been a real difference maker at the position he'll play in college. That will likely change this fall, when he should have a big year on Friday nights. He also doesn't have blazing speed. He's been a regular 4.6 guy at different camps, although he does play faster than that. Finally, he's probably not even the best receiver on his own team. He has a teammate, a rising sophomore, who will likely get recruited nationally in a few years.

Bottom Line: In Waters, the Canes are getting a very talented wide receiver who has an edge about him. He wants to be great. He has the confidence and the ability to make big things happen at the next level. Recruited like a low four-star prospect, Waters gives Miami another quality wide receiver in an already solid class at that position for them.
