I call BS on the Jeremy Davis situation.

Sounds like a kid who won't be able to go to the school he wants so he overreacts. Why would it make any sense for Golden to have an "attitude" with him knowing it would get out? Especially seeing how clean Golden has been since we hired. Every move he's made has been the right one. Him slipping up like that seems unlikely.

At this point, if Golden doesn't want the kid, I don't want the kid.

Time will tell.

The Hurricanes' tight end depth chart should get a big boost in the next week or two.

USC senior tight end Blake Ayles is expected to enroll at school this spring, and because of NCAA sanctions against his school he will be eligible to play immediately.

Ayles will compete to start with senior Chase Ford, sophomore Asante Cleveland, backup Billy Sanders and several redshirt freshmen with no experience.

Cane tight ends struggled in the passing game this year, with three players combining for 21 receptions totaling 236 yards and one touchdown.

"It's a fresh start," Ayles told the LA Times of his decision to enroll at Miami. "I'm just trying to get that starting spot and fulfill my dream of winning a national title."

Ayles never lived up to his 4-star billing coming out of Orange (CA) Lutheran High - he was rated as the nation's No. 2 tight end by Rivals.com, but he struggled with injuries at USC.

The 6-foot-5, 245-pounder has 14 career receptions for 182 yards with one touchdown. This past season he had just one catch, although it went for a 54-yard gain. He missed most of the spring of 2010 with an ankle sprain and concussion, holding back his battle to win the starting job.

Helping draw Ayles to UM was former Trojans a.ssistant coach Brennan Carroll, who is now UM's tight ends coach and national recruiting coordinator.

Ayles' bio, entering this season, courtesy of the USC sports information department:

2009: Ayles served as a sophomore backup tight end in 2009. Overall in 2009 while appearing in 8 games (all but Washington, Stanford, UCLA and Arizona), he had 7 receptions for 87 yards (12.4 avg.). He had 2 catches for 22 yards against San Jose State, a 23-yarder grab against Washington State, a 29-yarder at California, a 10-yarder at Notre Dame and a 3-yarder at Oregon. He sprained his knee and ankle prior to the Stanford game, which forced him out of USC's final 4 contests. He had a procedure to correct heart arrhythmia in 2009 fall camp. He missed 2009 spring practice while recuperating from a knee injury.

2008: Ayles served as an often-used backup tight end as a first-year freshman in 2008. Overall in 2008 while appearing in 9 games (all but California, Notre Dame, UCLA and Penn State), he had 6 catches for 41 yards (6.8 avg.) with 1 TD (a 1-yarder against Ohio State). He had 2 receptions for 24 yards versus Arizona State. He sprained his knee at Washington and missed the California game, then re-injured it prior to the UCLA game and had arthroscopic surgery that sidelined him for the Notre Dame, UCLA and Penn State contests.

HIGH SCHOOL: His 2007 honors included Super Prep All-American, Prep Star All-American, EA Sports All-American first team, Scout.com All-American second team, ESPN 150, Super Prep Elite 50, Prep Star Dream Team, Super Prep All-Farwest Offensive MVP, Prep Star All-West, Long Beach Press-Telegram Best in the West first team, Orange County Register Fab 15, Tacoma News Tribune Western 100, Cal-Hi Sports All-State first team, All-CIF Pac-5 Division first team, Los Angeles Times All-Star Lineman of the Year, Orange County Register All-Orange County first team and All-Trinity League Co-Offensive MVP as a senior tight end and defensive end at Orange (Calif.) Lutheran High. He had 51 receptions for 723 yards (14.2 avg.) with 8 TDs on offense in 2007, plus had 8 sacks on defense.

As a junior in 2006, he made Cal-Hi Sports All-State Underclass first team, All-CIF Pac-5 Division first team, Los Angeles Times All-Star first team, Orange County Register All-Orange County first team and All-Trinity League first team. He had 43 catches for 617 yards (14.3 avg.) with 3 touchdowns in 2006 as Orange Lutheran went 14-1 and won the 2006 CIF Pac-5 Division and the California state Division II championships.

He made the 2005 Cal-Hi Sports All-State Sophomore first team while catching 36 passes for 469 yards (13.0 avg.) with 6 TDs.

He started as a freshman. Current Trojan Michael Reardon also prepped at Orange Lutheran.

He also was on the track team at Orange Lutheran, with bests of 193-6 in the discus throw (he won the 2008 CIF Division III, Orange County Championship and Trinity League meets, was second in the California state meet and was fourth at the CIF Masters meet) and 51-7 3/4 in the shot put (he was third at the 2008 CIF Division III meet). He also sprinted and triple jumped.

He was named the 2007-08 Cal-Hi Sports State Division III Athlete of the Year and Orange County Register Boys Athlete of the Year.

PERSONAL: He was a sociology major at USC.

BLAKE AYLES ON: His 1-yard touchdown catch against Ohio State in 2008: "When the ball was in the air, I thought to myself, 'I better not look stupid right now.'...When they called the play, I was a little surprised. Actually, I was really surprised. I got a little nervous all of a sudden. I kept thinking, 'Uh, oh. Uh, oh. Uh, oh.'"

WHAT OTHERS SAY: Jeff Miller, Orange County Register: "He's not a reserved, cliché-spewing player trying to blend into the USC program like a grass stain. Ayles has a personality and isn't afraid to use it. In high school, he sometimes grew his hair long, at least when he wasn't shaving his head bald...He isn't shy about sharing his thoughts, especially when those thoughts could produce a laugh."

Former USC quarterback Aaron Corp, Ayles' high school teammate: "I would say Blake's a little off. But he's a football player. He doesn't really care what people think of him...If nothing else, Blake will hit you hard."

Former USC quarterback Mark Sanchez: "He's a wild guy. He makes people laugh. He's the kind of guy you see riding by on the handlebars. He's a lot of fun to be around...He's got this competitiveness about him. He wants to win every play."

New Hurricane coach tells of vision

CORAL GABLES

Al Golden's vision for Miami sits in a desk drawer. It's been a few, frenetic weeks for the new football coach. He's sleeping at a hotel. His dress suits are in a football locker. His dinner diet is M&M's and Pringles.

Golden just hired an offensive coordinator Thursday, is organizing recruiting plans for the weekend and works from an office with a still-moving-in look to it. Folders are piled. Clothes hang from the door, including an orange-and-green dress tie someone gave to color-coordinate him.

There's a motivational book on the floor from a former Temple player called, "The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs." Stacks of other papers are beside it with titles like, " Partnerships Influence Performance."

Golden, you see, believes in the power of the written word.

"Once you write something down you're more committed to it,'' he said. "You can refine it from there. I write everything down I believe in and want to do."

Oh, he speaks directly and strongly. Like when he says something like, "We're going to get back to developing young quarterbacks here that want to go to the NFL."

Or when answering what will be different about these same Miami players next year: "Finishing. The way we will run to the football on defense and finish plays. The way we'll finish plays on special teams, finish runs on offense, finish blocks, finish games. Finishing. That a glaring issue to me."

What Golden is saying there, essentially, is Miami players were lazy last year. Or sloppy. That isn't him. Here's a story: While a Boston College a.ssistant, Golden got word a recruit was deciding the next day.

When the dinner ended at 9 p.m., he drove four hours to the recruit's New Jersey home, left a note on his porch and immediately drove back to Boston. Did the kid sign?

"Of course he did,'' he said. "I didn't do all that to lose him."

There that idea in that story again: The written word. And Golden's believe in it in something like a porch note. He reaches into a draw of his desk now and there it is in a bigger way. There's his vision of Miami.

It's the 300-page, spiral-bound book he took to his interview with Miami athletic director Kirby Hocutt. The book is printed in Miami's colors, says, "Deserve Victory" on the cover and, under that, "The Pillars of Performance" with a picture of the Greek Parthenon. On the pillar are words like "discipline" and "work."

"Inside here is what I've developed over 14 years of coaching,'' he said. "The mission statements for coaching, the five rules for student-athletes – and I only have five."

What are they?

"That's for them,'' he said.

He did, however, show the page of the four-step progression players are expected to make from freshmen to seniors: from being directed, to being coached, to having a partnership to having empowerment.

None of that, you would agree, shakes the ground. But it is revealing to how Golden works that it's a written part of his master plan. And what's in here isn't just for show, mind you.

In talking with him about motivational speakers, I mentioned a flight from Dallas to Chicago sitting next to Zig Ziglar, a motivational guru.

"Look at this," he said, flipping right to page 286 in his book. There was a section quoting Ziglar.

Will any of this help on fourth-and-2 against Virginia Tech? That remains to be seen. But it's help get Golden get to this point.

He was a Penn State tight end who describes his one-year NFL career under Bill Parcells in New England thusly: "The worst player on the worst team in the league."

He laughs. "I don't take that too seriously."

But ask him why Miami hired the Temple coach and that emotion changes: "Because the Temple coach did something great. Took over the worst program and won over nine games in four years. Went to the school's third bowl game in 70 years. Inherited 54 scholarship players and got back to Division I levels. And did it basically without any facilities."

Part of being a sports fan is getting to know the new coach. Randy Shannon was one of us. Larry Coker was a favorite uncle. Butch Davis was driven by ambition. Jimmy Johnson was a unique personality.

Golden? He's a man with a 300-page plan in a state full of new plans. Will Muschamp has one at Florida. Jimbo Fisher backed his up this first season at Florida State. Somewhere in those 300 pages, you hope, is the secret for getting Miami back to being Miami.
