Talk about it in Gary Ferman's War Room
Wide Receiver Aaron Boyd from Lexington (Ken.) Henry Clay has been receiving his share of attention from some big-name programs. The fleet-footed, 6-foot-4, 195-pounder will have quite a decision facing him thanks to numerous offers.


Boyd is looking forward to visiting Miami.
"Yeah, so far I have offers from Kentucky, Louisville, Virginia, NC State, Cincinnati, Miami, and Tennessee. I don't really have a favorite yet but I'm going to look real close at Miami when I visit them in May or June, I think I'd fit in there well. I'm also going to look at Alabama, Notre Dame and Michigan."

Boyd hasn't been to any camps yet but expects to in the future.

"I've been clocked at 4.59-seconds in the 40, I have good hands and I run good routes, so I look forward to showing my stuff and learning."

Plenty of schools have already come in to eyeball the big receiver.

"Kentucky, Louisville, Virginia, Stanford and Tennessee have come through and someone from Vanderbilt is coming Wednesday. Boyd also plays cornerback in high school and could project as a safety as well.

"I'd play defense if I had to, but mainly I'm a wideout. If the coaches want me to switch though, I would."

Boyd has numerous big games as a high-schooler but singles one out that he'll remember.

"I liked when we played Boyle County and I had like seven catches and a touchdown, and overall it was just a great game for me and the team."

Aaron hopes to someday follow in his brother's footsteps to the NFL. Shane Boyd plays for the Arizona Cardinals.

As a junior, Boyd caught 39 passes for 730 yards and five scores and had two picks on defense.

Boyd Anderson High School DB Joe Wylie hasn't gotten much attention from recruiting services despite listing offers from the likes of Ole Miss, Auburn, Georgia Tech and Georgia.

But Wylie got plenty of attention at a press conference at his school where he moments ago announced that he would be a Hurricane.

CaneSport.com was there as he made the announcement.

"I'm a Cane, it's a done deal," Wylie said. "I received a Miami offer at the beginning of this month. I went for an unofficial visit and I loved everything about it."

It wasn't news to Cane coaches that Wylie is headed to UM.

Wylie says he called coach Randy Shannon to give him the commitment news last Wednesday.

"I just told coach Shannon I prayed about it, talked to my family, coaches, and in my heart I knew I wanted to be a Cane so I saw no reason to wait," Wylie said. "Coach Shannon, when I told him I was coming, he was happy and excited. He said it's great news and he's been hoping for it. He told me he was excited to have me as part of the family."

It was the unofficial visit to UM two weeks ago that sealed the deal for Wylie.

Both his parents attended Miami, and his father –- also named Joe Wylie -– played basketball for the Hurricanes in the late 1980's.

"With my mother and father going there, and the moment I talked to coach [Jeff] Stoutland (who is recruiting Wylie ) it was like I knew him all my life," Wylie said. "Coach Stoutland said `When you know it you know it.' I knew it and it was an easy decision.

"On the visit everything coach Stoutland had been telling me on the phone, it was the same thing he was talking about. It just seemed like such a family atmosphere, everyone was happy to see me and I was happy to see everyone."

A 6-foot-2, 191-pounder, Wylie says the Hurricanes are recruiting him as a safety.

He played free safety, quarterback and receiver last season. He started two games at quarterback and rushed for a pair of touchdowns in those games. On defense he had five interceptions and 40 tackles.

"He's a rangy player, is very fast on the field, has a 40-inch vertical," Boyd Anderson coach Mark James said. "He's a basketball player and a long jumper, is a great athlete. He can do so many things."

Wylie says he hopes to earn immediate playing time as a Hurricane.

"As I told coach Shannon, I want to contribute somehow right away, whether it's on special teams or whatever," Wylie said. "I have a nose for the ball, so if he needs me to block punts, I'll go out there and block punts. I just want to contribute right away if possible."

damn florida state beastin so far in early commitments

:rasta:
Yeah, we're doing pretty good right now. I think all but one of our commits are on DEF. But it's still a loooooooooooonnnggg time until signing day (unless they plan to enroll early). Hopefully with a good season will bring in a good class.

Da U's class is looking pretty nice too. Like I said earlier, it's good to see both school loading up on talent early. So far UM is holding down South FLorida and FSU is holding down North Florida.

Yeah, Texas seems to always have almost all of their commits before summer even rolls around. I guess with them being really the only big time major competing school in Texas, if you want to be a part of them you better jump on early. Their main competition in recruiting seems to be out of state Oklahoma. Other than them, I don't see Texas A&M, Tech, or Baylor really competing with UT in the football recruiting wars the majority of the time. It doesn't hurt that they won the Nat Champ two years ago either.

Patrick Johnson
CB | 6'0" 185

Hometown: Pompano Beach, FL
School: Ely High School
Region: South


Evaluation: Johnson is a big, physically impressive cornerback prospect with versatility on the offensive side of the ball as well. He has outstanding size and excellent top-end speed. He obviously has good ball skills and hands for the interception but is also dangerous with the ball in his hands and can contribute as a punt returner. He high points the ball very well. He attacks routes in front of him and closes very abruptly. If he makes a mistake, he is often able to recover due to his speed and natural ability. He is a bit long legged and can struggle redirecting with lightning-quick receivers, but overall he has the fluid hips to turn and run with most wide outs. He has the height to win jump balls downfield. Reads receivers' eyes well and turns his head to locate passes quickly. Possesses outstanding athletic ability. Changes directions quickly and explodes out of cuts. Possesses great range and can cover a lot of ground when asked to drop into zone coverage. Has experience lining up at receiver, has excellent ball skills and is a playmaker. Takes adequate angles to the ball and can make plays all over the field in run support. Breaks down in space, wraps up upon contact and is a reliable open-field tackler. However, Johnson's height and high-cut build can get him into trouble. He lacks great footwork and is vulnerable to double moves. Gets turned around too often. Plays high in his pedal and is not always smooth in transition. Is built for press coverage but doesn't always move his feet enough to keep with quicker wide outs off the ball and then must recover. Overall, Johnson is big and physical with excellent range and athleticism. A move to safety would not be out of the question, and he possesses some big-play ability.

Micanor Regis
DT | 6'2" 290

Hometown: Pahokee, FL
School: Pahokee High School
Region: South


Scouts Grade: 78
Considered: 1-Miami (FL) , 2-Florida State , 3-Florida , 4-Georgia , 5-South Carolina

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Evaluation: On film, Regis is a very solid defender. He plays the run well. He works out of a run-defender stance and plays gap control, so we don't get to really get a feel for how explosive he can be. He comes out of his stance and shoots his hands. He can be tough at the point of attack and hold his ground versus a single block. He locates the ball well and displays the ability to shed and make a play on the ball. He has good lateral movement to play along the line of scrimmage and navigates through traffic well. He can take a good first step and work across a blocker's face, get to his shoulder and get penetration. He does not get a lot of immediate penetration and make many plays in the backfield, but that may be because of scheme. He is a solid tackler. He has a good motor and works to the ball. He has good size and moves well. As a pass rusher, he flashes the ability to be able to get push and collapse the pocket. He displays the ability to be able to work past a blocker, as he is active with his hands. He will need to adjust his stance to provide more explosiveness off the ball. Off of what we have seen, Regis is a very good player and can be tough versus the run.

Notes: 2006: 50.5 tackles, 10.5 sacks... Has offers from all interest schools and Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Central Florida, Southern Miss, Florida International, and Florida Atlantic...

Brandon Washington
OG | 6'4" 305

Hometown: Miami, FL
School: Miami Northwestern High School
Region: South

Scouts Grade: 77
Considered: 1-Miami (FL) , 2-Florida , 3-Florida State , 4-Rutgers , 5-Auburn

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Evaluation: Washington is a young man who still has his best football ahead of him. He has good size for a high school prospect and will flash good ability that can be exciting to see. He is quick off the ball and can quickly get into a defender. He has the ability to deliver a strong initial pop. When he comes off the ball low he is very capable of driving a defender off the line of scrimmage in the run game. He is inconsistent with his hand placement and needs to work on getting and maintaining position. At this stage he is a bit of a mauler that can start off well, but will at times get sloppy and lose control of blocks. He moves well and displays the ability to get up to the second level and adjust to moving targets. As a pass blocker he flashes the ability to handle protection in a short area. He has the size and ability to anchor versus a bull rusher. He displays good initial ability to shadow a rusher and get hands on to punch. He does look to struggle some with counter moves and looks to get leaning to hard in one direction and will have trouble staying in front of a rusher. Washington flashes good tenacity, but you would like to see him be a bit more consistent with his motor. You like to see him finish plays with the same type of aggression he begins them with. Washington flashes the tools needed to be successful at the college level, but needs to work on improving his overall game. If he can improve the little things he can be a productive player in the trenches in college. He looks like a prospect that would benefit from a red-shirt.

Notes: Originally attended Miami Edison... transferred to Northwestern for the 2007 reason. 2006: 2nd team All-Dade large schools...

not a hurricane....yet

Marcus Forston
DT | 6'2" 285

Hometown: Miami, FL
School: Miami Northwestern High School
Region: South

Scouts Grade: 83
Considering: 1-Miami (FL) , 2-Notre Dame , 3-Tennessee , 4-Rutgers , 5-Auburn

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Evaluation: Forston will be a highly-recruited defensive tackle because he can be explosive. He has good size and looks on film to be a thick kid. He has a good get-off and is regularly one of the first people moving on the snap of the ball. An impressive aspect of his ability is how he can explode out of his stance, shoot his hands generate power from his lower body and knock a blocker back. He does a good job of playing with his hands. He displays the ability to quickly punch and shed. While he is capable of knocking an opponent back, he can also punch, flip his hips and slip through a gap. Sometimes he can get that initial push and lose sight of the ball. He does a good job of taking on a block and holding his ground. He flashes the ability to take on and defeat a double team. He moves very well and can pursue to the ball. As a defensive tackle, he can offer help on the perimeter. He has a good motor for a big guy. He has good short-area change-of-direction skills. As a pass rusher, his initial explosiveness makes him dangerous. He has the ability get into a blocker and collapse the pocket. With his ability to use his hands, he can work past a blocker. With his ability to move, he can close well on a quarterback. He is a solid tackler and takes good angles to the ball. Forston is a very good prospect. He is a little on the small end when dealing with ideals, but he is so explosive and quick that it does not seem to really be a factor. In addition to raw ability, he plays the game well and should be able to contribute quickly, at least some, at the college level.

Notes: 2006: 92 tackles, 20 sacks... Also considering Florida State, Florida, North Carolina, Mississippi, Nebraska... has approximately 25 offers (April 2007)...

Karnell Hatcher
S | 6'1" 185

Hometown: Delray Beach, FL
School: Atlantic Community High School
Region: South

Scouts Grade: 82
Considering: 1-Georgia Tech , 2-Mississippi , 3-Arizona State , 4-Miami (FL) , 5-Florida

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Evaluation: Hatcher offers you the size and physicality of a weak side linebacker, and the occasional athletic range of a true half field safety. He runs the alley sifting through trash with athleticism, sharp pursuit angles and speed. His usual intention at the end of the pursuit is to stone ball carriers with the occasional burst on contact. Possesses explosive plant and drive ability from his pedal. Uses this skill to attack the run game vertically when not chasing from angles. He can transition in the pass game as well. Flashes fluid hips, light feet, and the quickness to zone turn out of his pedal and play the deep zone. Shows the same plant and drive burst when coming out of his pedal to explode and close on underneath routes. Flashes the awareness to read the quarterback, and the instincts to anticipate throws when playing the high point. Puts himself in position to separate the ball from the receiver. This awareness often times makes up for his lack of elite range. Hatcher is best breaking down or across on balls, not trying to get over the top of speedy receivers. His versatility to break up a post route and then drop down in the box for run support is outstanding. However, his game still needs polish on both ends. At times, his explosiveness and tenacity at the point of attack is inconsistent. He closes, but does not always explode on contact. Possesses the size, especially at the high school level to run through people but we only see flashes. Needs improvement in his technique as an open field tackler as well. Must be reliable as the potential last defender. He often lunges and over runs the ball carrier in space. When watching Hatcher, at times he looks like an elite safety in the 2008 class with all the intangibles. However, there are occasions when he lacks the burst, acceleration, and tackling ability needed for that label. Has potential to put it all together, have a solid senior campaign and move up our board. Projects at free safety at the next level where he can potentially roam and be an intimidating presence at the highpoint. Has the blue prints for a "Robber" safety in certain 4-4 schemes. Could grow into a weakside linebacker.

Notes: 2006: 59 tackles... all-Palm Beach selection. Also interested in Florida State, Michigan...

Aldarius Johnson
WR | 6'3" 190

Hometown: Miami, FL
School: Miami Northwestern High School
Region: South

Scouts Grade: 84
Considering: 1-Miami (FL) , 2-Florida , 3-Florida State

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Evaluation: Of all the big, talented wide receivers in this class -- and there are many, Johnson may be the most explosive out of the group. He has a rare combination of size, quickness and speed. He is as much a vertical threat as he is difficult to handle after the catch on underneath routes. He has excellent awareness, especially along the sideline. He has good hands and coordination skills. He is a very good deep threat and an aggressive player when going for the ball on deep routes. He makes good downfield adjustment and can make acrobatic catches down the field. He is effective at extending his hands out and catching the ball away from his frame. He possesses very good "yards after catch" ability in open space. This trait sets him apart from other big wideouts. He uses his long arms and short-area quickness to get a clean separation off the line. He plays fast and can close cushion versus off corners. He is a good route runner with natural downfield set up. He has very good body control and balance as a route runner. He can lower his hips with good quickness to gain separation at the top of stems. At times, Johnson will tend to rely too much on his natural tools and play street ball. If he remains focused, he is as good as they come at this level. Johnson has the speed to go vertical and the suddenness to take the short catch and turn it into a big play, which you don't find very often. A true home-run threat.

Notes: 2005 at Miami Jackson HS: 24 receptions, 461 yards (19.2 average) and five touchdowns... Third team Class 4A All-State as a sophomore. Transferred to Miami Northwestern prior to junior year. 2006: 72 receptions, 1,361 yards (18.9 average), 19 touchdowns... First team Class 6A All-State... Also punts...

Etienne Sabino
ILB | 6'3" 225

Hometown: Miami, FL
School: Dr. Krop High School
Region: South

Scouts Grade: 83
Considering: 1-Miami (FL) , 2-Auburn , 3-North Carolina , 4-Mississippi , 5-Georgia Tech

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Evaluation: Sabino shows excellent athletic ability for a player possessing his size. At 6'3" and 225 pounds, he flashes the range to chase sideline-to sideline and the closing speed to explode onto ball carriers. Shows the athletic ability to be great in space and also in between the tackles. He sifts through the traffic with patient reads and very few false steps. Uses deceptive agility to slide past would-be blockers and finds direct downhill run lanes. Sabino does not look to tackle -- he looks to punish ball carriers. Uses his short-area burst to roll his hips and run through with great velocity. We like his rangy athleticism in coverage as well. Uses his long body to cover space and get to his drops quickly. His straight-line closing speed allows him to quickly break on underneath routes. However, on straight-line run plays his reactive athleticism is missing at times. This delay allows blockers to reach him at the next level and inhibits his pursuit angles. Often times, he opens his whole body for lineman to engage and does not consistently utilize hand technique when shedding. He is an explosive tackler, but on occasion drops to his knees on contact and lunges. He displays some impressive drag-down tackles with his strong, extending arms. However, at the next level, with the competition that much stronger, he will need to consistently wrap up low, put his head on the football, and play breakdown in open space. Sabino does not possess many physical weaknesses, and at times you rewind the film asking yourself if he really just made that play. Needs to polish up technique in all phases of his game, but this kid blends some rare athletic ability with a controlled violence mentality at linebacker. Potential to make a serious impact at the next level.

Notes: 2006: All-Dade mention as a junior. Also interested in Florida, N.C. State...

Lerentee McCray
OLB | 6'2" 200

Hometown: Dunnellon, FL
School: Dunnellon Senior High School
Region: South

Scouts Grade: 81
Considering: 1-Florida , 2-Miami (FL) , 3-Florida State , 4-Auburn , 5-West Virginia

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Evaluation: When you watch just a couple of clips on McCray, the first word that comes to mind is potential. Possesses a long, rangy body that could easily pack on 25 pounds while remaining athletic. He delivers a big pop on contact for a wiry kid; he should become scary explosive when he physically matures with a college strength program. Fluid athletically, possessing great range against the run and in coverage. Surprisingly, he is aggressive and effective in between the tackles as well. He can sift through the wash, making himself thin when needed, and flashes a short-area burst. Shows fluid, change-of-direction ability and is athletic enough to recover from most false reads. However, this is an area in his game that needs the most improvement. He does not make overextending false steps but flashes one or two hitch steps that delay his reaction. We would like to see him improve his read skills and reactive athleticism. The explosion out of his stance does not match the closing explosion he often showcases. Once he can combine both, look out. Needs to consistently chase to the sideline with a relentless attitude. At times, it looks like he is not accelerating at full speed. We question whether he lacks elite straight-line speed or if he attacks with full effort consistently. This kid might be better in a defense that allows him to be a short-range attacker. May be best closing off the edge or even in the middle, where he can close quickly on direct run lanes. Wherever he plays in college, he possesses some of the best natural tools we have seen in this class for a coach to develop. A red-shirt year to improve his reads, coverage skills and strength might help this kid explode onto the college scene in 2009.

E.J. Manuel

School: Bayside High School
Region: Atlantic

Scouts Grade: 83
Considering: 1-Maryland , 2-Miami (FL) , 3-Florida State , 4-Virginia Tech , 5-Virginia

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Evaluation: As Manuel heads into his senior season, recruiting is really going to heat up for this youngster as he possesses great size, a live, big arm and tremendous athleticism. He is a pocket passer and a dual-threat guy all wrapped into one package. Physically, he has all the tools. He is capable of making any throw on the field and shows good velocity on his deeper throws. Can fit the ball into a lot of tight spots. Shows ability to change velocities and throw catchable balls underneath. He also shows good accuracy and touch in the short-to-intermediate passing game. Release mechanics can be inconsistent, but his delivery is just a flick of the wrist. He is in the shotgun most of the time and needs more reps from under center to develop as a drop-back passer reading on the move. Possesses good lateral movement and shows the ability to slip pressure and create second-chance opportunities. Has a tremendous arm underneath and on deep out routes. He does a very nice job surveying the field and goes through his progressions. This offense forces him to make a variety of throws -- not just short or deep, and he is capable of throwng on the move and across his body. Just when you think he is a pocket passer, he will show excellent initial burst and quickness to escape the pocket and make plays with this legs. Looks like a big wide receiver or undersized, athletic tight end when running. He has very good speed and elusiveness and is a remarkabale athlete. Keep an eye on this kid, he has a chance to be outstanding.

Notes: Holding over 20 scholarship offers (April 2007). Also drawing interest from LSU, Alabama, North Carolina, Penn State...

Never miss breaking news on Miami sports and recruiting. Sign-up for CaneSport.com Wireless Text Alerts sent right to your cell phone!

Lexington (KY) Henry Clay High School WR Aaron Boyd had hoped to take an unofficial visit to Miami for the Spring Game.

It never happened.


"I had a track meet to attend," the 6-foot-5, 197-pounder with 4.64-second speed said. "I talked to coach (Wesley) McGriff and he said he's going to come up in May and after that I'll be down in the summer for a visit."

Boyd says he's torn on whether to announce a decision before his senior season.

"I'm kind of leaning to after the season," he said. "I have my top five picked out, but more schools are coming in so it's a hard decision."

Boyd currently lists six offers: Kentucky, Louisville, NC State, Virginia, Tennessee and Miami.

Where does UM fit in?

"I don't want to put it out there like that, but Miami is a possible No. 1 pick," he says. "They have a great program, a lot of people go to the NFL from their program. I see people excel more than just an athlete there, as a person. I've been thinking about Miami a lot. It could be a definite pick.

"I talk to coach McGriff about once a week -- he also talks to my brother [Shayne Boyd, who is with the Arizona Cardinals]. Coach McGriff just touches up on the basics with Miami, what's expected out of me, out of the program, the little details, that I'll be taken care of, the best possibility to get me to the NFL."

McGriff was a coach on the Kentucky staff when Shayne was playing there.

"Shayne is kind of looking out for me, he just wants what's best for me and whatever pick I choose he'll be happy with," Aaron says.

As a junior Boyd had 40 receptions for 730 yards with five touchdowns. He also played cornerback and had 20 tackles and two interceptions.

Hialeah (FL) High School DE/TE Corey Liujet already lists 25 scholarship offers, including the likes of Florida, LSU, Auburn and South Carolina.

And the University of Miami, which is recruiting him as a defensive end.

So far Liujet has taken two unofficial visits: To UM for a spring practice and to UCF.

He last spoke with a UM coach the day of the Spring Game –- "My phone has been turned off since then," he says.

He spoke with Cane coach Clint Hurtt that day.

"He was saying to stay on top of my grades, how they'd love to have me as part of the Hurricane family, to stay focused," Liujet said. "Coach Hurtt is a good guy, loves the kids, wants you to have a career just in case you don't make it in football.

"When I watched Miami practice before the Spring Game I liked the intensity of the college practice because everyone competes and everyone wants to win and is determined to win. That's all it takes to win, everyone competing in practice."

Liujet lists a current top three of Miami, Michigan and LSU.

"They're all even," he says.

What does he want in a college?

"I'm looking at academic-wise, the coaching staff, how many years they have on their contracts -- the little things are what counts," Liujet said.

He adds of UM that "I see them building their program. I know Randy Shannon will boost UM up to better than they did last year. They're pretty good right now, but they can get back to the old UM."

Liujet finished his junior year with 55 tackles, six sacks and 16 tackles for losses. He has started since his sophomore year, and last year he played quarterback, tight end, wide receiver, defensive end and nose tackle.

He had two rushing touchdowns, one passing touchdown and four touchdown receptions on offense.

Liujet says he likely won't make a college decision until after his senior season.
