the irony i remember in the early 2000s, our depth was being depleted cuz our studs were moving off to the nfl before graduating, thus making the team younger

no upper classmen to instill and mold the underclassmen

now, its the complete opposite

The Hurricanes lose a pair of experienced cornerbacks to graduation this year, and with little returning depth or experience it appears the team is turning to the junior college ranks.

One JUCO player who says he expects to be in this recruiting class is Tony Grimes, a 6-foot-0, 177-pound cornerback who plays at Arizona Western Junior College after initially starring at Hollywood Hills (FL) High School.

Grimes flew home for Thanksgiving and attended yesterday's game against Boston College as an invited recruit.

"They took me out on the field during warm-ups to meet coach (Al) Golden," Grimes said. "He said he's excited to be recruiting me.

"I talked to the other coaches, too. They were just making sure I'm staying on top of all my classes, focusing on my grades. They're looking for someone who could come in here and take over, and they said I could be that guy."

Grimes is on pace to graduate in May and says his understanding is he'll land a Hurricane offer as long as he qualifies academically. Once he gets that offer he plans to take it.

"They're just waiting to see how my grades come out," Grimes said. "I should be fine with that."

Grimes currently lists one written offer, from Indiana, and has verbal offers from several schools including West Virginia and Texas Tech.

He says his plan is to attend Miami.

"That's where I want to be," he said. "I want to be in orange and green next fall."

He says with UM's depth issues that "I can play right away - that's my plan and intention."

Grimes helped his team win the Western States Football League with four interceptions this year, and now top-ranked Arizona Western is set to face East Mississippi Junior College in the NJCAA Championship Game Dec. 3.

* Of his experience at the UM-BC game, Grimes said, "I enjoyed it. It would have been better if we'd have gotten a win, though."

* Grimes says he's been recruited by the Canes since arriving at junior college and that he first met coaches last summer when he took an unofficial visit.

A lot of chatter the past few days about Miami cornerback commitment A.J. Leggett not winding up in Hurricane orange and green next season.

It’s being reported that Leggett may be another casualty of UM’s high academic standards, something that has made alumni proud, while frustrating the Hurricane fan tied to the program for football and little else.

Leggett has a 2.4 GPA and scored a 22 on his ACT, so grades aren’t the issue. The fact that he’s been to more than two high schools, is. Leggett started at South Miami as a freshmen, transferred to Booker T. Washington as a sophomore, attended Gulliver Prep as a junior, Homestead this past summer and back to South Miami as a senior.

Leggett also insists all the jumping around was his parents’ decision and he’d have preferred to have only attended Booker T. and South Miami.

Leggett committed to head coach Al Golden months back, briefly switched his commitment to the Seminoles and then back to the Canes. Florida State is still interested in Leggett, as is Ohio State, but plans remain up in the air.

Another factor in the decision-making process; Leggett’s eleven-month old son A.J. III.

Leggett’s coach Lamont Green has chimed in on the subject, starting with commending UM for being open and honest with the process.

“At least they’re letting him know now before he puts his signature on any documents what the deal is,” Green said of Miami.

“We’ll see what he wants to do. Sometimes in college football things work out, sometimes it don’t.

They told him they definitely want him, but they want to be up front and not have him get frustrated. I don’t know what he’s thinking. I’m waiting on AJ to see how he wants to attack it.”

Leggett is a Miami product who committed to the Canes back in February – a year prior to Signing Day 2012. “The U” has always been his top choice.

“I’ve been wanting to play at UM all my life,” said Leggett. “I see a lot of opportunity there. I’ve been working hard to get my grades right, my test scores, my classes and stuff in line.”

Unfortunately it doesn’t look like those stars are going to align and when hearing the entire saga, you have to feel for the kid as a lot of circumstances out of his control seem to have him in this bind.
Why the Leggett family bounced their son around remains an unknown, but based on growing up around football-first families in South Florida, one would think it had to do with coaching staffs, playing time, position, exposure and anything that was going to keep a premier player in the spotlight.
Leggett is currently a senior and is ranked the tenth best corner in the nation, aspiring to play for a program in dire need of help in the secondary.

One can only imagine the frustration Golden, defensive coordinator Mark D’Onofrio and defensive back coach Paul Williams are feeling in the wake of this blow. Probably even worse that Leggett, who will thrive wherever he winds up.

Florida State and Ohio State simply don’t have the academic standards as Miami. I’m sure that statement would surprise the casual college football observer who wrongly lumps UM into that category, but the days of Sun Tan U are long gone in Coral Gables.

Not only has Miami become a premier university worldwide, but its athletes are expected to succeed in the classroom, as well. UM’s Athletic Progress Report (APR) rating is again in the top ten nationwide a big part of that is higher academic standards for football players.

No one is going to confuse Miami with Stanford on an academic level anytime soon, but the point is that grades to matter if you’re going to play football for the Hurricanes.

In this case, it looks like Leggett will be casualty of jumping around and paperwork woes, as his grades and test scores are good enough to get him into Miami. Leggett would need paperwork from all four high schools, which would be a tedious process that would call for one year of prep school to sort everything out.

So here sits Leggett at a crossroads; go to a prep school for a year, leave his son at home, put in the work and return to Miami for three seasons as a Hurricane – or – call it a day, go elsewhere for the next few years and take the show to the NFL in due time (barring a successful, injury-free career).

The story doesn’t even need to play out for Miami fans to know how this one is going to end. If you’re the betting type, you have to believe Leggett will be in garnet and gold next season. Ohio State is too far, Florida State is an eight-hour car ride from Miami and big time college football combined with instant gratification always seem to win out with teenagers over dues-paying and working towards a larger goal.

As an eighteen-year old, a year seems like a lifetime to Leggett, which is understandable. The thought of “doing time” at a prep school and not seeing the field for Miami until 2013, it probably sounds like the end of the world to him.

Of course in the grand scheme of life, adults know a year is a fleeting moment. The blink of an eye. It passes before you even know what happens. (On that note, where the hell has 2011 gone?)

As a parent, you hope that Leggett’s folks are giving their son sound advice – starting with an explanation about paying dues and working towards the ultimate goal. If Miami is truly Leggett’s dream destination, then don’t sell the dream short. Put in the year elsewhere (if need be) and come to Coral Gables hungry in a year. Period.

Of course if the dream is the NFL and college is just a stepping stone, then Tallahassee and Columbus are serviceable and three years from now, if the kid is as good as advertised, he’ll be playing on Sunday.

Wherever Leggett winds up, here’s hoping that he’s content with the choice. Canes fans may be frustrated about losing such a talented athlete, but at the end of the day, “next man in” comes into play and you simply recruit another corner and hope he gets the job done.

This isn’t a sports story as much as a human interest commentary and a desire to see a young man with a lot on his plate, guided the right way and doing what’s best for him and his young son. Period.

There are rules in this game of life and you either abide, break or choose another path. UM’s standards are what they are and can’t bend here as the integrity of the entire system and process go out the window if you make an excuse for one. If anything, be proud that this university – in dire need of cornerbacks – will hold its ground, even with someone as talented as Leggett dying to get on board.

It’s a moment like this that should be revered as much as a win on a Saturday, reminding you that is it truly great to be a Miami Hurricane.

Good luck in your journey, Amos. Hope you’re a Cane. Understand if you’re not. – C.B

i been telling ereybody ever since shalala and her academic standards came on, weve been sucking

hs systems in south florida are beyond horrible

all these perenial power house hs have F grades cumulative, some even have double F's - so its no suprise we have to turn down kids who wanna come here, because they wont qualify

mix that in with the nfl dreams, no one is sitting a year out to go to prep school, when the ohio states, lsus, west vas of the world will take them even if they are academically casualtys

not saying leggett is that, but the transcripts of all those schools getting them together could take up to a year before everything settles, why waste a year when you can go to another school, ball for 3 years and go to the nfl

Leggett Unlikely to Play at UM

One of Miami's top recruits is unlikely to sign with the Hurricanes.

South Miami cornerback A.J. Leggett, a four-star recruit according to 247Sports, announced on his facebook account Thursday afternoon that UM looks like a longshot.

"I dont think I will be playing In miami next year," Leggett wrote.

According to Leggett, Miami defensive backs Paul Williams told Leggett that because UM is a private school he would have a tougher time getting into school.

Leggett has attended four high schools leaving his academic standing with the NCAA up in the air.

Williams recommended that Leggett could attend a prep school to help his academic standing. However, Leggett stated that he doesn't want to go the prep school route citing family reasons.

Ohio State and Florida State are among the schools that have pursued Leggett.

Leggett guided South Miami to a remarkable turnaround 9-3 season after transferring from Gulliver Prep. He played quarterback and accounted for over 1,600 yards on offense and 15 touchdowns. On defense, he had four interceptions.

Leggett plans on playing in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl in Dallas, Texas as well as the Dade-Broward Game.

Leggett is the second commit this week to have parted ways with the school as Lakeland wide receiver Ricquan Southward changed his commitment to Ohio State.

Hurricanes fans will soon have one more chance to watch some of their Canes play football — and be coached by one of their favorites.

The Battle of Florida all-star collegiate football game will be played at 8 p.m. Jan. 21 at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton. Retiring FAU coach Howard Schnellenberger, who brought UM its first national title in 1983, will coach the South team, while retired FSU coach Bobby Bowden will coach the North team.

Players must have been either born or played high school football or college football in the state of Florida. The game will be televised nationally by Fox College Sports.

So far, three Hurricanes and one former Cane have accepted invitations. UM offensive lineman Joel Figueroa, defensive tackle Micanor Regis, tight end Chase Ford and former Canes receiver Aldarius Johnson will compete in the game for Schnellenberger’s South squad.

The other senior Canes who were invited and haven’t yet responded: receiver Travis Benjamin, quarterback Jacory Harris, linebacker Sean Spence, defensive end Andrew Smith, guard Harland Gunn, center Tyler Horn, defensive back JoJo Nicolas and cornerback Mike Williams.

The Battle of Florida personnel director Jaden McNeely believes his game has a chance to thrive alongside the two other longtime collegiate all-star games: the Senior Bowl (Jan. 28) at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, and the East-West Shrine Game (also Jan. 21) at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.

“We did this game because we felt like Florida was being underserved,’’ McNeely said. “We truly believe there are 100 NFL prospects in the state of Florida. Our approach is, why not take guys who would normally fall in between the cracks and let them play in front of NFL scouts and give them a chance? A lot of these guys don’t have the opportunity once their season is over.’’

Senior Bowl spokesman Kevin McDermond said Thursday that some invitations have gone out and many more will be sent in the next couple weeks. McDermond said the Senior Bowl has “not invited the Miami guys yet, but I anticipate we certainly will.’’

East-West Shrine Game executive director Harold Richardson said his game sends out 65 invitations “to those everybody on the planet knows you’d invite — the rest go out on a personal basis. We sent out that first batch about two weeks ago.’’

Richardson does not publicize the invitation list. He said he’ll distribute the acceptance list in early January.

Schnellenberger, whose influence in South Florida football has been huge, said it was important he was involved.

“I couldn’t allow this to go forward without my participation,’’ he said in September when the game was announced. “This is another thing to ensure that football in Florida will continue to grow and develop and keep its rightful station with everybody else in the country.’’
