Recruiting Update

By Allen Wallace
National Recruiting Editor
Posted Jun 19, 2007

Travis Benjamin favors Miami solidly over LSU, Florida, Florida State and Ohio State. He says he grew up following the 'Canes. "They were always a great team and I liked how they played as one and had great team unity," Benjamin said. "They have great history overall. It's a nice private school and they have good academics. I also like the new coaches too. They seem really honest..."

Travis Benjamin, the 5-foot-11, 160-pound wide receiver from Glades Central High School in Belle Glade, Fla., finished his junior season with 30 receptions for 700 yards and 15 touchdowns. "My speed and leaping ability are my strengths," Benjamin said. "I'm also very agile and I like to think I'm like Santana Moss.

"I want to get more physical and be more aggressive with the ball."

Benjamin benches 205 pounds, squats 305 and has a 34-inch vertical jump. He runs the forty in 4.45.

His first scholarship offer was from Mississippi in November and he said he also has offers from Miami, LSU and Auburn.

Benjamin favors Miami solidly over LSU, Florida, Florida State and Ohio State. He says he grew up following the 'Canes. "They were always a great team and I liked how they played as one and had great team unity," Benjamin said. "They have great history overall. It's a nice private school and they have good academics. I also like the new coaches too. They seem really honest."

The 'Canes are less than two hours from his house, while the Gators and Seminoles are about four to five hours away. "I'm hearing from both of them, but we haven't talked about offering yet," he said.

Benjamin says he may go to a few camps this summer, however, he doesn't have any scheduled yet. "I really want a chance to play early," he said. "I need to check out their depth chart and see who they have and what they need. Hopefully, I'll make my decision by the middle of the season."

Recently, Benjamin visited LSU and came away impressed by the Tigers. "I went there like two weeks ago and I really like the staff," Benjamin said. "We really got along well. I also like the location because it's by the river and very nice."

Another school that Benjamin said he'd really like to visit is Ohio State. "They have a great program and produce great players," he said. "They are always competing for the national championship and I'd like to visit them and see what it's like there. I don't care about the distance and my parents said that it's my decision."

He is also recruited to run track, but says he'll "stick with football." Benjamin runs the 100m (10.6) and the 400m (48.8).

Benjamin reports a 2.8 core GPA and a 17 ACT.

Florida LB Names Favorite
Lerentee McCray
Lerentee McCray

By Mike Bakas

Posted Jun 19, 2007

Dunnellon High standout Lerentee McCray is one of the top linebacker prospects in the state of Florida this year and he talked about the latest.

Lerentee McCray is enjoying his summer so far.

"Things are going good," McCray said. "We have a passing tournament tomorrow. I've been doing a lot of stuff with my team, getting ready for the season."

McCray, 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds, took an unofficial visit to Florida over the weekend.

"Me and my uncle went there on Saturday," he said. "We just went to hang out, see how things were going. We got shown around the campus and I was basically with Coach Strong all day. Coach Mullen is my recruiting coach but Coach Strong's my position coach. The visit went very well. That's a good school."

Despite the good visit to the nearby program, McCray names another school his current favorite.

"Right now Miami is on top," he said. "That's my dream school and I'm liking them more than the rest right now. Just the coaching staff, everything. Overall, they're my top school."

McCray, who visited Florida State earlier this month, said he plans on taking two more visits later this summer.

"My coach is probably gonna take me up to visit LSU and Auburn sometime next month," he said. "I wanna check these schools out before I take my official visits to see where I really wanna go for those."

Randy Shannon has already landed 10 commitments for the Class of 2008.

And two of the more recent commits – Jordan Futch and Jacory Harris – are working together to make sure the rest of the class fills out as strongly as possible.


Futch says he is working hard on 10 recruits to try and get them to UM
"I just got off the phone with Jordan," Harris said. "We're trying to get guys to come to Miami with us. We just talk about how great things are in the future, how everything's going to turn out good if all of us decide to go to this one place, how we can bring Miami back to the old days."

For his part, Futch says he's after 10 recruits to choose UM. And he says there are "three top, top playes from right here down in Miami" that he thinks are already planning to come.

He's not identifying the players to preserve their right to announce when they are ready.

"I'm working pretty strong, telling guys to come along with me," Futch said. "The selling point is that family environment where everyone's together. It's not only just one offense and one defense; it's a whole family-oriented team."

What kind of feedback is Futch getting when he sells fellow recruits on the Miami program?

"It looks like everyone wants to come on board," Futch said. "It's just a case of people keeping their options open right now. There's a lot of great programs out there. At the same time a lot of them are very, very interested in us."

He says, of the 10 recruits he's working on hardest, "I'd say eight for sure come to Miami."

If you played the `Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon' game with Futch or Harris, about every top player in Broward and Dade County would be represented.

"My mom's best friend is Jacory's aunt, and I played on the same Optimist team with Aldarius (Johnson)," Futch said. "I played against Brandon Harris, Davon Johnson, all those guys. Even up to Palm Beach, I know people up there from my family, and Jacory knows people there, too."

For his part, Jacory Harris is getting ready to work hard on landing other offensive playmakers.

"I texted DJ [Davon Johnson] and said `Whenever you feel like you want to make that choice, that's your decision, go with it wherever you want to go,'" Harris said. "I'm not going to say `Just come to Miami, come to Miami.' It's where you feel comfortable."

But Harris says he'll take a different approach with a handful of his teammates that have UM offers.

"I'm just telling them to come to Miami with me," he said. "Most likely they'll be coming with me. I'm not too much worried about it. They're going to come."

Harris says he'll "personally drive" teammate Aldarius Johnson to UM if the receiver isn't publicly committed soon.

For his part, Futch sees this recruiting class as a turning point for UM's program.

"I would say this class is the key to UM's success in the future," he said. "This class right here, being that it's coach (Randy) Shannon's first class as head coach, this is an important, key class that will set Miami up to be like the old Miami teams and better. That's the goal. And this class is what needs to happen.

"We have guys like Kayne (Farquharson), Demarcus (VanDyke), key players, a quarterback like Robert Marve this year, but this class is the backdrop that will set that initial punch. It's up to us to turn it around."

What will happen if this class turns out the way Futch and Harris envision?

"Coach Shannon said if we get all the guys from Pahokee down, who can stop us?" Futch said. "We get all those guys, the U can't lose.

"We're going to shock the NCAA."

While some Hurricane fans have penciled Miami Booker T Washington WR Davon Johnson into this UM class, the 5-foot-11, 168-pounder with 4.3-second speed says everyone should take a step back.

"I'm undecided, still open and have no frontrunners," he says.

Johnson speaks with Cane receivers coach Marques Mosely regularly.

"I talk to him about every day," Johnson said. "We just talk about academics, things like that."

He says Mosely is the college coach he talks to most often.

But there are numerous coaches hot on his trail.

Johnson lists 12 offers, including UM, Rutgers, LSU, South Carolina and Ohio State.

"I don't know when my decision's coming out, if it will come out early or not," Johnson said.

He is getting pressure to stay close to home.

"(Jordan) Futch is calling me, asking me to pull the trigger and all that," Johnson said. "I don't know when I will. I'm undecided."

He lists a top four of UM, South Carolina, Central Florida and South Florida.

Johnson spoke about each:

* South Carolina: "I don't know much about them, just know Steve Spurrier's background."

* Central Florida: "David Kelly's a great guy, a father figure guy."

* South Florida: "They've been showing me a lot of love."

* Miami: "I love everything about Miami - the atmosphere, coaching staff, players. I'm from Miami, so I know everything about Miami."

Belle Glade (FL) Glades Central OL Jarien Moreland lists scholarship offers from the likes of Auburn an LSU.

"I got MVP's of the Auburn and LSU camps, the overall MVP," Moreland said. "I wasn't going to let anybody beat me."

While Moreland is happy to have the offers, he says there's one school he's focused on also getting a scholarship letter from: Miami.

"I love them, that's the team I root for," Moreland said.

So far he's gotten two letters from UM. The first was a form letter, and the second arrived earlier this week.

"It was a letter that said `I heard you're very interested in us,'" Moreland said. "It just said they'll be following me."

What would happen if UM winds up offering down the road?

"I'm not going to say I'm going to commit right away, I have family to talk to," Moreland said. "But that's going to be a strong point of going there right now. My mom doesn't want me to go far. and LSU's real far. Family's one of the strong points."

Moreland also says Ole Miss is hot on his trail.

"They have sent me thousands of letters, but haven't offered yet," Moreland said. "Their coach saw me in the weight room and I was going all out and he loved the ambition and work ethic that I had. So they're sending a lot of mail, the most of everybody."

Moreland played center last year but is being recruited as a guard.

A 6-foot-5, 310-pounder, he'll play both ways for the first time this season.

How did he become a Miami fan?

"My older brother roots for Florida, but I've been a Miami fan all my life," Moreland said. "I was just a big fan of Miami, loved it. I always went to see Hurricane this or Hurricane that when I was younger."

Moreland's brother is now a defensive end for the Detroit Lions: Claude Harriott.

"I work out with him a lot," Moreland said.

UM lands basketball recruit

By Craig Barnes
South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted June 21 2007, 5:02 PM EDT


Quincy Roberts, a 6-5 combo guard from Harrisburg (Pa.) High School, confirmed on Thursday that he has verbally committed to the University of Miami.

"I wanted to get this out of the way before my senior year," said Roberts who averaged 10 points, four rebounds, three a.ssists and two steals. "The Miami coaches showed the most interest. I was more comfortable with them because they talked as if they had had a plan for me."

Roberts, who chose the Hurricanes over FSU, Virginia Tech and Pittsburgh, is excited about competing in the ACC.

"It is a great basketball conference," Roberts said. "It provides the biggest challenge to improve. I had some choices of schools within the conference. I feel good about what I decided."

Roberts needs a qualifying SAT score yet. He is the fourth player off coach Kirk Smallwood's team to be recruited. Harrisburg has been to back-to-back Class 4-A State finals.

"He has a chance to have a big senior year," Smallwood said, "and it is good to get the recruiting process behind him. Recruiting can become a distraction at times. He can play the point or two guard. He is athletic, good defensively and makes the players around him better."

Video RSC Day TwoTelemaque talks campTen of Troy: Rising Stars

Talk about it in Gary Ferman's War Room
Ridiculous, absurd and unbelievable were a few of the adjectives repeatedly used to describe Patrick Johnson's performance on Friday at the University of Southern California's Rising Stars Camp.


GM
Patrick Johnson owned Friday's Rising Star Camp with leaping grabs
The 6-foot-1, 193-pound all-everything cornerback out of Pompano Beach (Fla.) Ely made a splash because of his talent and his wavering commitment to the University of Miami.

Johnson's solid verbal commitment may be significantly less solid after his visit to USC and his official scholarship offer from head coach Pete Carroll.

"My dad wanted me to come out to the camp," Johnson, who ran a sub 4.4 second 40-yard dash, said. "I wanted to get to see the coaches and the campus. It was a great opportunity, and I had a great time with the other players and coaches.

"They've got a great atmosphere.

"I talked mainly with Pete Carroll," Johnson, arguably the country's number one cornerback, said. "He thinks that I can come in and possibly start my freshman year. At least, I'd have a great opportunity to come in and make some plays.

"I guess it means it's pretty open," Johnson said about his commitment to Miami.

In this case, 'pretty open' means it's going to be a two horse race.

"It's going to be Miami versus USC," Johnson said about his eventual commitment.

"The distance from Florida doesn't have any effect," he said, emphasizing the 'any' and giving credence to the speculation that Johnson may want to get out of the state of Florida for college.

With the distance from Pompano Beach to Los Angeles a moot point, Johnson said it would be the coaches and atmosphere that ultimately finalizes his decision.

"Oh yeah, it makes a difference," he said about Carroll's defensive back pedigree. "With Coach Carroll being there it would be a great opportunity to get some of the knowledge that he's got over the years."

As for officially signing his letter of intent, Johnson said that he wants to wait until he has gone on his official visits to both schools.

"This November I should make it official. I'll come out to my official visits and (then make my choice)."

"Nah, I don't think so," he said about the possibility of taking an official visit to anywhere other than USC or Miami.

After the buzz he created at the Rising Stars Camp, expect Johnson to vault up the Rivals100 board and make a run at unseating T.J. Bryant for the top spot amongst 2008 cornerbacks.

USCFootball.com will continue to bring you the latest on Patrick Johnson throughout the year.

Pete Carrol and his "#1 guy" crap. Of course he COULD do anything as a freshman, but I hope he has friends and family close to him that are a bit more grounded.

If he, and his family, think USC is the best fit for him by all means go there, but dont buy into the "playing early" hype. Especially at a school that recruits like they do.
