yo fam if our passing Offense improves by a good amount we winning the ACC

we've had national championship type of defensive every year and i believe this year will be no diffrent

and our O Line is gonna improve alot this year since they were a overall young O line, and baby james is gonna take care of the rest


all we need is an improved passing attack and we got this ACC on Lock which is easier said than done!!!!

cant wait till september

:rasta:


Straight up, Other than the Louisville Game and that Terrible LSU Game, all the others games were meant to be won.. If we had even a DECENT OFFENSE, we would probably have been in the ACC CHAMPIONSHIP the last two years...

yeah he was GT's OC
he made their offense look good even though all they had was calvin johnson, should be interesting to see what he does with even more talent
Patrick Nix made that bumass Reggie Ball an okay QB at GT. I'm excited to see what he can do with a couple of better QB's or maybe even with Marve running the show.

Jacory Harris
QB | 6'3" 180

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

Scouts Grade: ESPN 150 Watch List
Considered: 1-Miami (FL) , 2-LSU , 3-Boston College , 4-Minnesota , 5-Central Florida

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

Evaluation: For a guy who is such a good athlete and can make things happen with his legs, Harris has the upside to be just as good a passer in time. He is very much like former Ohio State QB Troy Smith -- a competent passer with the potential to be an excellent passer with some development. He plays in a scheme that really accentuates his strengths. He's in a very deep shotgun on every snap and gets good depth away from the line. They spread it out, which makes him dangerous as a dual-threat guy when things break down because he is an explosive runner with good initial quickness. He is a lanky athlete with good height -- is built like a receiver. He is a shifty and smooth athlete who can create his own plays when the initial play breaks down. He will make people miss, and when he is on the perimeter, he puts tremendous pressure on a defense because he can throw it. He has a whip-like release and more-than-adequate arm strength. He shows enough zip to fit the ball into tight spots when on time and shows solid touch and accuracy on the fade route. He throws very well on the move to either side and can throw across his body. For all of Harris' athletic skills, he can be erratic. Will c*ck and wind-up at times, and delivery mechanics can be inconsistent. Feet are not always set, and his accuracy suffers. Loses power on the deep ball and can only go so far vertically. You worry about the fact that he is rarely, if ever, under center. Overall, Harris is the ultimate spread offense QB -- he can run, he can throw and he is competitive. He is blessed with having great players around him and a scheme that suits him. Needs to be in a similar style at the next level to maximize his tools.

Notes: 2006: 2,920 yards, 37 touchdowns. Also interested in Rutgers, Alabama...

Thearon Collier
WR | 5'10" 170

Hometown: Miami, FL
School: Booker T. Washington High School
Region: South

Scouts Grade: ESPN 150 Watch List
Considered: 1-Miami (FL) , 2-Virginia Tech , 3-Mississippi , 4-Florida , 5-Auburn

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

Evaluation: Collier is a big play wide receiver and return specialist that can really fly. He is sudden, he is explosive and he has the ability to change gears in a hurry. He is one of those players that can tunr a short play into touchdowns and is a field position changer in the return game. He has explosive speed off the line of scrimmage. Gets a lot of respect for his deep speed, which is why he gets room to work underneath. Shows the ability to drive defender off the ball. Is always a vertical threat with excellent speed and the ability to separate. He gets into routes quickly and works to get downfield. Is dangerous in the slot-- has a feel for zones, cans ettle in the hole and is a huge mismatch for safeties. Shows good hands, does a good job of adjusting to ball thrown in the air. Will lay out for ball and can snatch away from his body. Shows good body control. Is not a great route runner yet, but always under control and shows some ability to break route off. Is a huge threat after the catch-- once he gets in open space, look out. He isn't very big, but he is tough and feisty. He will compete for the ball. Needs improve upperbody strength to handle press coverage at the next level if he can't win with initial quickness. Overall, Collier is a gamebreaker in two phases of the game and you can't coach speed. Excellent prospect and coaches would love him at corner too.

Notes: 2006: 34 receptions for 791 yards (23.3 average) and nine touchdowns...all-Dade large school team...all-state as a returner...

Push down.

Twist.

Repeat.


That's what offensive lineman Derrick Morse spent a lot of this off-season working on.

It isn't a new technique coach Jeff Stoutland gave to the linemen. And it isn't a hand-eye coordination drill.

It's Morse's job.

"You sit in the warehouse, it's about 85 degrees, and you just twist on Vitamin C caps and pass them down the line," Morse said. "You have to pay the rent over the summer, and it's so I can afford things."

Morse does the job with teammates A.J. Trump and Cyrim Wimbs.

They work the 11 a.m.-4 p.m. shift, sitting side by side and twisting on the tops.

And talking about the team.

"We just talked about this yesterday, how we came to Miami to win championships and win the ACC every year," Morse said. "Well, since we've been here we've kind of been the downswing. This is my last year here, and I don't want to be in the era when Miami wasn't great.

"We're pretty much coming back to greatness, which is great. That's why I can't wait to come out here for my last year and show everybody. I don't want to come back and say my four years at Miami and my true freshman year we went to the Orange Bowl and won it, since then we've won a Peach Bowl and an MPC Computers Bowl. No, man. We want to go to a national championship, the BCS at the least. In a year, two years, we're going to be that powerhouse that we were."

Morse will be a big part of any strides made on offense.

He could play guard or center, although he expects to be at guard in the fall with A.J. Trump getting the first crack at center.

"I know at some point I'll probably have to play center," Morse says. "But I think my home is at guard."

Morse experimented at center in the spring before missing the final few weeks due to injury.

"It was kind of frustrating being hurt this spring, especially after last season and wanting to step up," he said. "But all those guys came out this spring and did real well. That was a positive. They got good experience getting a lot more reps. So that was good.

"I'm almost back to 100 percent. There's going to be a lot of competition going into the fall, too. There's a lot of guys whose motors are running, guys getting in great shape. It's going to be fun."

Morse's intensity is legendary among his teammates.

It's a good match for the intensity of first-year head coach Randy Shannon.

Where does Morse get his nonstop motor?

"I think it just comes down to pride," he said. "I have a lot of pride. Everybody's got an ego, I guess mine's just a little bigger. I'm not going to let this guy beat me. A guy trying to physically manhandle me pisses me off, I guess. And it gets my motor running. From that first collision it's like a firecracker just explodes and you go. That's how you have to play, because if you're not trying to rip their heads off, they're ripping yours off."

* Asked to name young players who are ready to step up, Morse said, "Chris Rutledge had a great spring. We've got a lot of young guys - Chris Barney had a great spring. Joel Figueroa still has a bit to learn, but he's got a motor and intensity. He reminds me of a younger me. All the guys are getting in great shape. It's going to be competitive as hell ... and fun. And we're all going to get better."

* Morse commented on Randy Shannon that "Coach Shannon is a great coach. Every play with him is intense. It's run, run to the ball, make sure you run back to the huddle. Everything is running and go fast, put them on the ground, get up and go do it again. It's intense and everybody does it and everybody's starting to adapt that intensity. It'll overall make our offense very explosive and a lot better this season."

Don't let the last couple years turn you off to early commits. The fact is MOST stick to their word. Now what I'm quoting next is what would put me off a bit....

Ohio State, literally, had around 3-5 silent commits last year and NONE of them panned out.

I hope you guys have better luck in that department.

Exclusive: WR to Commit by the end of the Week


[pic - click to view]


Miami Northwestern High School WR Aldarius Johnson told CaneSport.com last week that "If everything works out I'll be going to Miami, but I'm going to wait a little bit to commit."

Now it looks like "a little bit" might mean a matter of a week.

Johnson says he's planning on committing to Hurricane coaches this week.


"I'm going to call the coaches and set up to go down there," Johnson said. "By this Friday it will be done, 100 percent. I just want to get it done.

"Nothing's changed. I plan on committing to Miami. I'm excited to get things over with."

Johnson says if something doesn't go as planned that he is also considering Florida and LSU.

Johnson says he hasn't spoken with UM coaches since last month.

A 6-foot-4, 212-pounder with 4.4-second speed, he's drawn comparisons to star WR Calvin Johnson. Last year Aldarius had 78 receptions for 1,354 yards with 19 touchdowns.

Chavez Grant spent his freshman year last season learning the nickel position.

Now he's added cornerback to his repertoire.

And he sees good things ahead for a defensive backs group that is more experienced despite the loss of stud safety Brandon Meriweather.

"I think we've gotten better," Grant said. "We were kind of young last year. Randy Phillips was a sophomore, Kenny Phillips was a sophomore, I was a freshman. Brandon's the only one that left. Glenn Sharpe's coming back. We learned a lot, got a new coach out there, have coach (Tim) Walton at defensive coordinator. I think it's looking real good for us. Everyone's working hard. We'll be more experienced, and that always works for the better."

The DB's are working hard this time of year along with the rest of the team.

What fans don't see is the hours spent in the weight room, running and studying film this time of year.

"It's tough right now," Grant said. "Right now is the toughest time of the year. When the season comes we don't work as hard because we're trying to save our energy, prepare our bodies for the game when we perform to the most. Right now we're lifting hard, running hard, doing everything to get our bodies right so we can go ahead and work for the championship.

"It's tough right now, but I like it. I always need the challenge. That's what I thrive off of."

Grant says he would "love to start."

Of course, he has Randy Phillips and Sharpe to beat out.

"Everybody's competing to start," Grant said. "I'm also playing the nickel, too. Whatever I play is fine. I'm just looking to contribute to the team. I've still got great guys in front of me, and I'm learning from them and I'm trying to help Doug Wiggins [a true freshman]. It's just a team effort. Whoever starts doesn't matter. We just want to win games."

Of Wiggins' progress, Grant said, "He's coming along well. Doug's lifting well, running well, so everything's good with him."

Grant says this summer's workouts are harder than the ones he did last year.

"I think coach (Andreu) Swasey is making it real hard for us in the weight room," he said. "Last year was hard, but it feels like it's getting tougher right now."
