He mentioned "playing in the SEC" a lot. Seems like that was the biggest factor in his choice if you ask me.

Behind-the-scenes with Miami recruiting

ESPN The Magazine's Bruce Feldman went behind-the-scenes Insider with Miami coach Al Golden in the Hurricanes' recruiting war room to get a feel for how the new coach is doing on the trail. When Golden was hired, only two recruits remained on board from the group former coach Randy Shannon and his staff had recruited. Golden has made significant progress since then, and he's not done yet. This is an Insider link, so I'll give you a sample:

"We always say we don't want to be seduced by talent," Golden said Monday afternoon from his office, which is still decorated in the way Shannon had set things up. Golden's objectives are heavy on intangibles. He covets explosive athletes, but puts a premium on football smarts (does a player know the difference between Cover-2 and Cover-3? Do they grasp fundamental football concepts?), toughness and discipline. Each attribute can be hard to gauge, particularly the latter two. And, when you haven't had much time to get to know the recruits or have them in camp, it gets even harder. Golden says that, like Bill Parcells and Bill Belichick, he wants "gym rats." "We don't want clock-punchers," he adds. "That's gonna get you seven wins."

The toughest challenges came with recruits that either A.) were committed to Shannon and weren't pleased about there being a coaching transition or B.) didn't like that they hadn't been offered by the previous staff and now only had a few weeks to decide.

Still, Golden chooses his words carefully. It would be easy to talk about what might have been lacking before with Miami recruiting or the situation that he inherited. "I have a lot of respect for Randy (Shannon)," he says, adding that there "needs to be a healing" for the program and all of the people connected to it.


Ryan McGee says that in three years, Golden might be one of the nation's top recruiting head coaches:

Golden's arrival was a little too late to get the Hurricanes into this year's top 25, but since taking the job in December, his relentless pursuit of South Florida athletes already has become the stuff of high school hallway legend, as the Sun-Sentinel's Steven Gorten wrote this past weekend. And reading ESPN.com ACC blogger Heather Dinich's account of Golden's nationwide hunt for a quarterback makes me want to lie down and rest. We'll have to wait and see whether his efforts land him top uncommitted QB prospect Jacoby Brissett.

Grimble said late Tuesday he plans to sign this morning with the Hurricanes, bringing an end to a frenetic scramble for one of the nation's most coveted pass rushers. Grimble originally committed to Southern California in May.

"It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," Grimble said. "The coaching staff is great. The school's in a nice area. The student-to-teacher ratio is 11-to-1. You could go across the country and that's hard to find."

Grimble chose Miami over scholarship offers from UCLA, USC, Nebraska and many others. He left his official visit to Miami the weekend of Jan. 21 impressed with the school's business program, which was key in his decision.

Grimble's signing with Miami will take place on mother Amy's birthday, giving the family plenty of reasons to celebrate.

Jalen's father, Jerry Grimble, said he received about 200 phone calls Tuesday from various people wanting to know what his son's plans were.

"I'm relieved," Jerry Grimble said. "All I wanted was for my son to be happy. Wherever he picked, I'd support it. I just want him to go there and get a good education, and the rest will play itself out."

not sure how legit that is, but tfww
