When LB Keon Wilson arrived at Poplarville (MS) Pearl River Community College last fall, he had one message for his coach: Help me get a Miami offer.

"That's where he wanted to go," Pearl River CC coach Tim Hatten said. "The one thing he told us was `Coach, do you think you can get Miami to take a look at me?'"

After a season in which he was eighth in the nation for a JUCO player with 118 tackles (along with 13 sacks and two interceptions), Miami took a look.

And he got a Hurricane offer yesterday.

It's his third offer alon with Ole Miss and USF.

"Coach (Wesley) McGriff brought a written offer (to the school)," said Wilson, who played his high school ball in Jacksonville. "He has been talking about me coming in, that they're in need of a defensive player like me, that the position is open. All I have to do is come in and rise to the occasion."

Wilson's coach figured his star player would commit to the Canes when UM offered.

After all, Wilson's mother lives in Miami and the 6-foot-1, 235-pounder grew up a rabid Canes fan.

But that didn't happen.

"I'm still thinking things over, my options are open," said Wilson, who says the earliest he will make a decision is in October.

Wilson played the SAM position last year but will be in the middle this season.

He graduates in December and plans to study chiropractic in college.

"He's a great player," Hatten said. "He's a big kid, is real fast, a 4.55 guy, has a high 30's vertical leap, has good hips. He's a great worker, a great kid.

"This past season he was First Team All-Region 23. He'll be a preseason All-American this season."

Wilson says he hears comparisons in his play to former Cane linebacker Ray Lewis.

Ft. Lauderdale (FL) Cardinal Gibbons DE Jeremy Longo didn't start getting recruited by the University of Miami until two weeks ago.

He caught their attention quickly.

Jeff Stoutland attended his recent spring game, and today Longo received an official Hurricane scholarship offer.

"I was excited," Longo said. "It's my first offer from the Big 3."

Longo has plenty of other offers, with over 40 schools offering him.

But the 6-foot-5, 224-pounder has two on top.

"Right now I like Miami and Georgia," he said. "Those two come down to the wire together."

Longo didn't rule out making a decision as early as next week.

He plans to visit UM at some point in the next 10 days.

"I'm going to visit, will call coach (Clint) Hurtt and set up meetings with coach (Randy) Shannon and the rest of the staff," Longo said. "If I go down there and fall in love with it, it'll be done right then and there."

If Longo does commit, it will be because he feels extremely comfortable at UM.

He says that's a must in his recruitment.

As is playing time.

Longo recently spoke with Hurtt: "We talked about how Miami needs defensive ends," Longo said. "They're planning on taking two this year, and I'm on the top of the board with another guy they're trying to pick up."

Last year Longo had 125 tackles and eight sacks. He began picking up offers after he attended several combines following the end of last year.

Miami Northwestern High School DT [db]Marcus Forston[/db] and, as he puts it, "the whole Northwestern team," were late arrivals for UM signee Demarcus VanDyke's recent `Welcome to the U Party.'

So what kind of message does it send having all those Northwestern recruits at a University of Miami themed party?

"No, there's no message," Forston says. "I knew Demarcus before he even decided to go to UM. We trained together with the same trainer.

"We had a real good time at his party."

Forston says VanDyke doesn't pressure him to choose the Hurricanes.

"He doesn't talk about it, says `It's your decision. Wherever you go I'll be 100 percent behind you,'" Forston says.

Forston says he has no frontrunners right now and lists 25 scholarship offers, including Miami.

"My recruitment is real crazy," the 6-foot-3, 290-pounder with 4.8-second speed said. "It's a blessing, but it's also a curse. I can't even count how many text messages I'm getting every day."

Forston says he texted with Cane coach Clint Hurtt recently.

"He was at practice and was just texting me, saying he liked how I looked in practice," Forston said.

Birmingham (MI) Brother Rice High School RB Caulton Ray knows where he wants to go to college.

He's just waiting for an offer.

"Miami is No. 1 on my list, they're pretty far ahead," the 5-foot-9, 195-pounder with 4.47-second speed said. "That's where I want to be. I would say No. 2 is Michigan State and No. 3 is Nebraska.

"I grew up on Miami, really liked the team when I'm younger. I like the academic and athletic part as well. If they offered me tomorrow I'd probably commit."

Ray says he's speaking fairly frequently with Cane coach Jeff Stoutland.

"I sent him my film. He said they have a lot of offers out now but they're interested and they're going to see how it goes," Ray said.

So far Ray lists three offers: Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan and Bowling Green.

He plans to attend the Miami summer camp in hopes of landing an offer.

"This is my first time going there," he said. "I went to the FSU camp last year.

"When I was talking to coach Stoutland he said to come out for the camp and he'll show me around."

Johnson highlights

Talk about it in Gary Ferman's War Room
MIAMI- Miami (Fla.) Northwestern wide receiver Aldarius Johnson showed why he is one of the top wide receiver prospects in the Southeast on Saturday night.


Aldarius Johnson had 100 yards on Saturday night.
The 6-foot-2, 194-pounder had a game-high six receptions for 100 yards as his high school team won a jamboree contest against Belle Glades Glades Central, 42-21. Following the contest, Johnson talked about his performance and the current state of his recruitment.

"I came out the first half a little sluggish, but I came out in the second half strong," Johnson said. "(Northwestern quarterback and fellow Division I-A prospect) Jacory Harris did a good job of getting everybody the ball."

The showing in the game caps a productive spring for Johnson.

"I got stronger, faster and quicker (during the spring)," Johnson, who has been timed as fast as 4.54 seconds in the 40-yard dash, said. "I also got my plays down."

On the recruiting front, Johnson remains open about his college choice.

"There are a lot of schools (recruiting me)," he said. "(Including) Florida and Miami," Johnson said. "But I am not committed to anybody. I am open to any school."

Right now the Gators appear to be the most aggressive.

"Florida is recruiting me the hardest," he said. "They've been telling me a lot of stuff."

Johnson talked about what he is looking for in a college.

"I just want to make the right decision," he said. "I want to go someplace where I know I can go play and fit into the system."

This summer, Johnson plans to continue to improve.

"I am going to Work out and work on my craft that I've got to work on," Johnson said, adding that he plans to camp at Georgia, Florida and Alabama.

Johnson had more than 1,300 receiving yards and 19 touchdowns during his junior year as Northwestern finished unbeaten and won the Florida Class 6A championship.

Freshman lefty Eric Erickson matched a career-best with eight strong innings to win his 10th game and sophomore second baseman Jemile Weeks drove in three runs while going 3-for-5 as No. 5 seed Miami knocked off No. 1 seed Florida State, 9-3, Friday night in the second game for both teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament in front of a tournament session record crowd of 13,546. Miami (36-21) kept its hope to reach the tournament final alive by defeating the Seminoles (47-10) after Wake Forest held off No. 4 seed Clemson, 3-2, in the first game of the day.

Erickson (10-3) held the Seminoles to three earned runs on seven hits and struck out four. David Gutierrez struck out two in one inning in relief. Florida State's Ryan Strauss fell to 9-3 after allowing five runs on six hits in 4 2/3 innings.

"I am very proud of the way our guys played tonight, especially Eric Erickson," coach Jim Morris said. "He pitched a great game tonight. I guess we played better defense tonight and scored more runs, which was big for us even though Scott Maine was outstanding the first night. It seems that every time Eric goes out there to pitch, we score more runs than he actually pitches well."

Richard O'Brien hit his fourth home run and the first of this year's tournament in the second inning giving Miami the lead for good. Three of O'Brien's four home runs this season have come against the Seminoles. He finished 1-for-3 with three RBI. All nine UM starters had at least one hit in the game as Miami out-hit Florida State, 11-8.

Tony Thomas Jr. and Mark Gildea each went 2-for-4 for the Seminoles.

The Hurricanes erupted for four runs in the bottom of the sixth to go ahead, 9-3. Dave DiNatale doubled down the right field line and Blake Tekotte reached on a fielder's choice sacrifice bunt. With one out Yonder Alonso dropped in an RBI single to right field to make it, 6-3, but Alonso was thrown out at first after making a hard turn. Dennis Raben then slid in safely at first base to score another run putting UM ahead, 7-3. Weeks tripled in Raben for an 8-3 lead. Mark Sobolewski's base-hit allowed Weeks to score for a six-run lead.

FSU cut its deficit to 5-3 in the top of the sixth on Jason Stidham's RBI single which scored Travis Anderson, who hit a one-out double.

Week's two-run single in the bottom of the fifth put the Hurricanes ahead, 5-2. Blake Tekotte was hit by a pitch and Alonso was intentionally walked. With two outs, Weeks laced a single through the right side.

Thomas' solo home run in the top of the third pulled Florida State within, 3-2.

O'Brien gave Miami a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the second when he hit a three-run home run to right field after Jemile Weeks singled and Gus Menendez walked.

Florida State took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first when Thomas led off with double and stole third. He scored on Mark Hallberg's groundout.

The Hurricanes will play Wake Forest at 7 p.m. Saturday night in the final game of pool play. If Florida State defeats Clemson on Saturday and Miami defeats Wake Forest, UM will go to the championship game on Sunday. Enrique Garcia (7-3, 3.14 ERA) will start for the Hurricanes Saturday while Wake Forest will counter with Ben Hunter (6-6, 4.55 ERA).

"This is huge," said Erickson. "We want a ring and . . . it was a lot of motivation for us."

Miami Booker T. Washington High School CB Brandon Harris was recently honored as Dade County's 6A-4A Male Athlete of the Year as well as Dade County's 6A-4A Defensive Player of the Year.

"I was kind of surprised to get both, was shocked," Harris said.

He received two large trophies that he keeps in his home's living room.

"I have 60 or 70 trophies there," he says.

Harris now is wrapping up his spring and has hosted Cane coaches Tim Walton and Patrick Nix at his practices.

He's spoken on the phone with Walton and Randy Shannon.

"We talk pretty often over text messages," Harris said. "They're pretty much preaching the academic part right now, to stay focused in school."

Asked if the Cane coaches think he'll be heading to Miami next year, Harris said, "Maybe. They know it would be a good opportunity for me."

For now Harris is keeping things open.

"I have no frontrunners right now, but I'll narrow it to a top six soon," he said. "Miami will be in there, of course. That's definite."

Asked the pros and cons of UM, Harris said, "The benefits would be staying close to home, playing in the well-known tradition and just playing in the atmosphere in the Orange Bowl with my family able to watch me.

"Some of the cons would be there's a lot of depth at the cornerback position - they signed cornerbacks for this year and in my 2008 class they already have one, Patrick Johnson, and they want two more [another commitment this year, Joe Wylie, is expected to be a safety]."

Harris' brother, Tim, is a track standout at UM.

"I visit him a lot," Harris said. "He tells me there's a lot of good things going on down there. He enjoys it a lot, tells me some of the good things I can benefit from."

Harris says he's also friends with current Canes Chavez Grant and Antonio Dixon they both also attended Booker T. High.

"They tell me there's a lot of great things going on with the new coaching staff and the direction they're heading in," Harris said.

Nashville (TN) Montgomery Bell Academy OL Preston Bailey says he received a Miami scholarship offer "a couple of months ago."

He now lists seven offers: UM, Mississippi, Vanderbilt, Middle Tennessee State, Clemson, South Carolina and Tennessee.

"I don't have any favorites, have no certain order," the 6-foot-5, 315-pounder says.

He may get more scholarship offers when his spring practice begins this week.

Because he's at a private school, his one-week practice starts after public schools practices end.

Of UM, he says, "I know a lot about the Hurricanes, everybody does. Although I live in Tennessee, everybody knows about Miami. They're known for putting players in the league, winning big championships."

He says he has yet to talk to Cane coaches.

"When I got that Miami offer I was out of the country on spring break," he said. "I never got a chance to talk to coach [Randy] Shannon."

Bailey says he will be taking a close look at Miami as recruiting moves forward.

"I'll definitely be visiting there," Bailey said. "Hopefully when I plan out my officials Miami will be one of them. It seems it'll be a great place to visit, see the players, campus, facilities."

What does he want in a college?

"First I look at academics," he said. "We're playing this game and I'm getting a full college ride in order to pursue a full education. From there I observe the coaches and players, kind of get a sense of the feeling between the players and coaches. Thirdly I look at the atmosphere of the campus and try to visualize how it would be with me there."

Lakeland (FL) Kathleen High School WR/DB T.J. Lawrence has a Miami offer.

Sort of.

"I talked to coach (Clint) Hurtt, and he said there's a 99 percent chance I'll be getting an offer from Miami," Lawrence said. "Coach Hurtt said I'm a phenomenal player."

Lawrence has 15 written offers from the likes of Boise State, Virginia Tech, FIU and USF.

He says he'll be taking official visits to Boise and Miami this summer.

"I would say I'm open right now," Lawrence said when asked his frontrunners.

Asked where the Canes specifically fit in, Lawrence said, "they're pretty high."

Of what he's looking for in a college, he said, "I have to like the coaches and I have to like the campus, get along with my position coaches also."

Several schools are recruiting Lawrence as an athlete, but he says UM is recruiting him as a receiver.

Last year he had 52 receptions for 1,245 yards with 15 touchdowns. On defense he had 38 tackles, five interception and two sacks.

Memphis (TN) Evangelical Christian School OL Barrett Jones is up to 16 scholarship offers.

Including Miami.

"I got the Miami offer about a month ago," the 6-foot-5, 270-pounder with 4.9-second speed said.

He also lists offers from the likes of Florida, LSU, Alabama, Tennessee and Auburn.

"I haven't narrowed things down yet, will try to do that this summer, will do a top five," Jones said.

To help him narrow things down, Jones will take a whirlwind summer tour.

"I'll take at the end of the summer," he said. "I'll go to Miami, probably Florida, maybe LSU, North Carolina, a lot of other places."

He says what he wants in a college is "a good football program and good people - that's the biggest thing. I want a good environment and good academics also."

Jones is well acquainted with future Cane Tyler Horn. The two play at rival schools in Tennessee (Horn is at Memphis University School).

"I talk to him," Jones said. "He's like `You should definitely come check out Miami this summer.'"

Jones and his school got the better of Horn this past season, 21-12.

Because Jones also plays defensive line, he matched up head-to-head with Horn during the game.

"He's a real good player, has pretty good feet and is a big, strong guy," Jones said.

Destrehan (LA) High School athlete Jerico Nelson is being recruited by some schools as a tailback, by others at safety.

"I don't care which I play," he says.

Miami is recruiting him for defense.

"I got an offer in April, have 10 offers now," Nelson said.

Those include UM, LSU, Florida, Auburn, Alabama, Arkansas and Ole Miss.

Of what he wants in a college, Nelson says, "A good program, good coach, playing time."

He says he is open among several favorites: Miami, Florida, Alabama, Arkansas, USC and LSU.

"They're all pretty close," he says. "Miami has a little advantage because I went to the football camp last year and I'll be going this year also.

"I know Miami's campus is nice, really calm. Everybody's like a family."

Asked about any pressure to stay close to home, Nelson said, "There's not a lot of pressure, but they are close and they come around the school a lot."

Joe Pannunzio visited Nelson's school during spring evaluation. The pair have talked on the phone since.

"He just asks how I'm doing in school and stuff like that," Nelson said.

Last year Nelson had 160 carries for 1,069 yards with 14 touchdowns. He had two interceptions on defense and also returned a fumble for a 70-yard touchdown.

Lee Chambers bioVideo highlights

Hurricane RB signee Lee Chambers underwent shoulder surgery in November, but he says he's now at 100 percent.

"I had rehab, a physical therapist," Chambers said. "I had a third degree separation in the third game last season that I played with."

Chambers has been working with a trainer and says he's up to 188 pounds after playing last season at 170.

"I could play right now (with the shoulder) if I had to," he says. "I'm stronger now than I was before the surgery. I bench 265. I ran the 40 with my trainer and he tested me three times a 4.45, then a 4.42, and my last time was a 4.39. My best time I ever ran was a 4.37 at the All-America combine at Ole Miss."

Chambers is following the Miami workout program that was mailed to all the incoming freshmen.

"It really is tough," Chambers said.

Asked a typical day on the program, Chambers said, "Monday is the running. You have to do a whole bunch of stretching, then you do running. From all the running your body will be fatigued by the time you hit the weight room. So by then it's a mind thing and you have to stay focused. If you don't stay focused you won't be able to work out. It's like a 24-hour workout plan turned into a two-hour workout plan."

Chambers graduated May 25 and arrives in Miami for summer school June 26.

"Miami already admitted me," he said. "I'm in the school of communications, majoring in broadcast journalism."

Chambers lives in a low income rural area of Mississippi, so he expects it will take some time to adjust to life in Miami.

"It's going to be real weird," he said. "It's going to take me a while to adapt. I'm a country boy, so it's going to be real weird going to the palm trees, adapting to life there."

Chambers says, once he gets to UM, he expects to work in as a punt and kick returner.

"I think I'll be on the board for that," he said.

Hurricane WR signee Daniel Adderley attended most of UM's spring practices this year.

So he has an idea what to expect when he officially arrives on campus.

"I'm looking forward to it," Adderley said. "The big thing for me is going to be just getting smarter. I haven't been challenged with reading defenses much in high school. So it's just running the right routes, things like that."

Adderley has one small political obstacle to clear before reporting to Miami.

"I'm not sure exactly when I'll get to Miami because I have to do Student Visa stuff for the Bahamas [his native country]," said Adderley, who played high school ball in Simpsonville, South Carolina. "I have to go home and get that straightened out.

"I have (a Visa) right now but it expires. It's not too difficult to renew, just paperwork. I should get there on time [at the end of this month]."

Adderley is working out with former St. Louis Rams receiver Tony Horne to prepare for the next level.

"He's with a company that works with football players, he's getting me in shape," Adderley said. "He's teaching me a lot about the game, things I didn't already know, making me stronger and faster and working on my route running. I do that from 2-6 every day."

Adderley says he's improved his 40 time from 4.6 to the low 4.5's.

"I'm almost in the 4.4's," he says.

Adderley says on a typical day he begins warming up at 2 p.m. and then runs 18 110-yard sprints.

After that he works out for an hour-and-a-half while also doing agility drills and working on catching passes.

"I'm weighing in at 218 pounds," he said. "Last year I was at 205."

Adderley has also taken a unique approach to preparing for college life.

"I wake up at 5:45 every morning to get my body in the rhythm of waking up early," he says. "I do some light weight stuff at that time for 30 minutes, get disciplined by waking up that early."

Adderley is staying in regular contact with Cane receivers coach Marques Mosely.

"He tells me he's going to prepare all of us receivers to come in and play right away because depth is short there," Adderley said. "He wants us to do that, and if not we'll discuss redshirting. I'm just willing to help the team however I can."
