UM freshman QB Marve hurts arm in crash
BY BARRY JACKSON


University of Miami freshman quarterback Robert Marve injured his left (nonthrowing) hand early Monday morning when a car driven by Hurricanes freshman receiver Jermaine McKenzie flipped over on Interstate 75 just north of Naples.

McKenzie was not injured, according to his father, John, and was back in Miami on Monday afternoon. UM sophomore linebacker Colin McCarthy, who was the only other person in the vehicle, left the hospital in Naples on Monday and did not appear to be injured, according to Robert Weiner, who was Marve's head coach at Tampa Plant High.

Marve, who was in the back seat sleeping when the accident happened, sustained lacerations on both his left hand and wrist and disfigurement of his left ring finger, according to Weiner, who was with Marve in the emergency room of Naples Community Hospital on Monday.

Weiner said Marve was set to have surgery on the hand later Monday afternoon but that doctors were uncertain if he had ligament or tendon damage. Marve suffered no injuries to his throwing hand or any other injuries, aside from stiffness in his body, the coach said.

''They want to cleanse his hand and make sure it's not infected,'' Weiner said. ``That's more important than checking out a fracture. He's feeling pretty good. He's a trooper.''

Weiner said Marve likely won't play football ''for at least a month'' but an exact timetable won't be known until doctors determine whether there's ligament damage. UM begins practice Aug. 4 and plays its regular-season opener Sept. 1 against Marshall.

McCarthy could not be reached for comment, but Weiner said McCarthy ``didn't seem to have any injuries and was moving fine and talking fine. He was shaken up.''

A UM spokesman said the school was gathering information and had no comment as of mid-afternoon.

The three players were returning to Miami late Sunday night after a weekend in Central Florida, where they have family. Marve and McCarthy picked up McKenzie in Bradenton, and were alternating driving responsibilities, Weiner said.

The accident occurred ''a couple minutes after midnight'' Monday morning, according to a Fort Myers-based dispatcher with the Florida Highway Patrol.

According to the dispatcher, the vehicle flipped after colliding with a guard rail. But Weiner said it was his understanding that there was no collision with the guard rail. Weiner, who received an account of events from Marve, said the car went off the side of the road, and McKenzie tried to turn back to the right to compensate, causing the car to flip.

The dispatcher, who declined to give his name, said no arrests were made, and there was nothing documented to suggest alcohol was involved. Weiner said Marve had no theories as to why the accident happened. Asked whether McKenzie might have fallen asleep, McKenzie's father, John, declined comment. John McKenzie declined to make any comment beyond saying his son is fine.

''Anyone who gets in a car accident like that is in shock,'' Weiner said. ``The first thing you're thankful for is everybody is still alive.''

Marve, the only scholarship quarterback in UM's recruiting class, was rated the nation's No. 8 quarterback by rivals.com and was named Florida's Mr. Football in 2006. During the past few months, he has impressed his new UM teammates and coaches with his maturity, arm strength and willingness to spend considerable time in the film room.

Though UM offensive coordinator Patrick Nix said in April that Marve would be given a chance to win the starting job, that was considered unlikely -- even before the car accident -- because of his lack of experience compared with Kyle Wright and Kirby Freeman.

McKenzie, rated the nation's 16th-best receiver by rivals.com in this year's recruiting class, has emerged as one of UM's standout freshmen during summer workouts and is expected to compete for immediate playing time. McKenzie attended Bradenton Academy and has been friends with Marve since both initially committed to Alabama before Mike Shula was fired.

McCarthy, who attended Clearwater High, appeared in nine games last season, mostly on special teams and as a backup linebacker. He was impressive during spring practice and is expected to challenge for a starting job.

The rumors of a commitment were flying after Tampa (FL) Freedom OL Matt Patchan spent the last three days at UM.

So, did he commit?

"I didn't commit," Patchan said. "I'm going to take three or four of my visits and then I'm going to make my decision come the end of December or early January.

"I don't know quite yet exactly where I'll visit, But I will know by the beginning of August. Miami has a really, really good shot at an official (visit)."

Of his time on campus, Patchan said, "Overall it was an extremely good visit. I really enjoyed it. I look forward to talking with them again. It was great."

He took the visit with his parents (his father played for Miami) and his uncle (who also played for UM) as well as two cousins.

One of his overriding concerns in talking with coaches was whether he'd be able to also play defense if he chooses to become a Cane.

"They said if I work hard and earn my spot I'd be able to play defense as well (as offense), that they'd give me that opportunity if I'm the best man," Patchan said."

Patchan had lengthy meetings with coaches Randy Shannon, Jeff Stoutland and Clint Hurtt.

As well as UM President Donna Shalala.

"This morning we met with her," Patchan said. "That was awesome. She has a great history. That was one of the highlights of the whole thing as well. She's a really cool person to talk to. I talked to her about the academics and the football. Of course I had to draw the conversation to politics because she has a great political background. It was a debate. I'm a Republican, so I was joking around that the fact that she's a Democrat won't come into play when I make a decision.

"We talked to her for a good bit, got there at 9 and didn't get back to the hotel until 11:15."

Of his conversations with Shannon over the weekend, Patchan said, "We were talking about a bunch of things, what happened in the past with certain things and how he runs the program there, what's changed and what's different and why the program can be better and what he envisions happening.

"We talked about playing both ways, where he sees the future of the program, how the talent will continue to be there."

Patchan spent several hours with Stoutland during the course of the visit.

"We had a bunch of long talks with him about technique, how he works out his players and practices them," Patchan said. "We also got chance to talk with coach Hurtt about how I would fit into UM's defensive line as well as offensive line. Those were all really good things we got to talk about."

A rundown of his visit:

"We got down Friday we got down there, there were some people working out we talked to and we talked to coach (Andreu) Swasey," Patchan said. "We got to see how he runs things. That's what we did Friday. We met a couple of the freshmen. They have a great group of kids. It was exciting to be around them. There were a lot of NFL guys working out as well. That was cool watching them working.

"On Saturday I got a chance to watch the 7-on-7's and the offensive line and defensive line individual drills. So I got a chance to see how they work, how they push themselves. Vernon Carey was back from the Dolphins and I got a chance to see him. That was very cool. The 7-on-7's were impressive. The defense is one of the best if not the best in the nation. It was exciting. Afterwards I hung out with a couple of the guys, Jason Fox and Derrick Morse. It was pretty cool. I talked to (Robert) Marve I played against him in high school and he's a pretty cool kid. We were talking about previous players we know, how he's getting acclimated to the school. At night I went out with a couple of players, hung out with them. That was great."

Patchan also spent some time Saturday with former Cane George Mira Jr., who roomed with his father and uncle when they all played at Miami.

Today Patchan met with Shalala before having more meetings with coaches.

He left campus in the late afternoon for the drive home.

Four-star prospect Jonathan Baldwin says he's set to visit the University of Miami this weekend.

"I'm coming Friday, will be staying three days," he said.

Baldwin has never seen UM's campus before, but he's been in Miami for basketball tournaments in the past.

He says he will be taking the visit with an a.ssistant coach from his high school.

It's his fourth and final visit of the summer he's already visited Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and Michigan.

And those four schools along with USC round out his top five.

"I'll be visiting USC during the season," Baldwin says.

Baldwin says he speaks with Cane receivers coach Marques Mosely "every three days."

"We just talk about how they can get me the ball, things like that," Baldwin said. "We talk about 10, 15 minutes."

What he's looking for in a college program?

"I don't want to get redshirted my first year, want to be able to play right away," Baldwin said. "And I look to see if they have what I'm looking for academically. I'll be majoring in communications."

Baldwin says he will "probably" announce a final decision on Signing Day.

He says he has no frontrunners among his top five.

Of what he expects on the Miami trip, he says, "I'll check out the campus and just vacation. I don't know much about the school. I'll find out about it."

In a run-based offense last year Baldwin had 21 receptions for 370 yards.

Return time uncertain for UM's McKenzie

University of Miami freshman receiver Jermaine McKenzie is in a neck brace following a car accident, and the timetable for his return is uncertain.

On Monday, McKenzie's father, John, said his son was fine in the wake of Sunday night's accident north of Naples. But on Tuesday, John McKenzie told canesport.com his son sustained hairline fractures in his neck but would not require surgery.

McKenzie said his son likely would not be ready for the start of practice Aug. 4. UM officials want to proceed cautiously because of the nature of the injury. McKenzie has been very impressive in summer workouts.

''We don't know how long he has to wear [the neck brace],'' John McKenzie told canesport.com. ``From his neck down, he's fine.''

McKenzie fell asleep while driving back to Miami on Sunday night, and his car hit a guard rail on Interstate 75 and flipped. Freshman quarterback Robert Marve, who was in the back seat, underwent surgery on his left (nonthrowing) hand Monday and is out indefinitely. Linebacker Colin McCarthy, the other passenger, was not injured.

UM has not commented since the accident.

Davon Johnson bio

With the season upcoming, Booker T. Washington WR Davon Johnson didn't want to wait any longer.

He knew he wanted to be a Cane, so an hour ago he picked up the phone and called UM WR coach Marques Mosely.

"I told him I wanted to be a Hurricane, that I was committing," Johnson said. "He was screaming on the phone. He said great, that he was happy, that the program is going to be great.

"I just felt like it was time for me to make my decision so I could worry about finishing school. I didn't want any distractions."

Johnson says right now it's "a 100 percent chance I'm going to Miami."

But he says he does plan to go ahead with official visits to South Carolina, South Florida and, he says, "maybe LSU."

"It's a high chance I stick with Miami," he said. "Right now that's where I see myself going."

Johnson finished last season with 20 receptions for over 700 yards and four touchdowns. He also returned two kickoffs for touchdowns, although one was called back due to penalty.

Johnson says he hears the most comparisons in his playing style to Ted Ginn.

His coach certainly agrees with that comparison.

"With the speed he does have and the capability he has to make big plays, he does remind us of a Ted Ginn," Booker T. Washington coach Tim Harris said of the 5-foot-11, 170-pounder with 4.29-second speed. "The similarities are there, but it's still a lot of work he has to put in to be a true Ted Ginn. But the speed he has and ability to make plays after the catch and what he can do on special teams is similar to Ginn. He's a kid that can come in and help them right away. That's a great pickup (for Miami). He's a great young man and gets to live out his dream at Miami.

"UM coaches got to work with him at camps (he was the overall MVP at this summer's camp), and you look at the character and kids that can be coached well and do what they've been taught that becomes a key issue, and he's a good character kid that makes plays."

Johnson's goals at Miami?

"My goal is to come in and have a chance to start at Miami," Johnson said. "I just have to learn the system."

Johnson says his final choices came down to Miami, South Carolina, South Florida and Central Florida.

"I didn't really think that strongly about any other schools except Miami because I'm from Miami," he said. "I felt comfortable with Miami, so I told coach I was ready to be a Cane."

Now Johnson says he's now working on making sure teammate Brandon Harris attends UM with him.

"I'm trying to get him to come," Johnson said. "But he probably won't decide anything until November or December."

Freshman quarterback Robert Marve is planning to withdraw from summer school while he rehabilitates injuries suffered from a car crash that occurred early Monday morning, according to the Tampa Tribune.

The newspaper reported that the accident dislocated the ring finger in Marve's left hand, broke his wrist and caused a serious cut between his pinkie finger and ring finger. Apparenty Marve narrowly avoided needing having his pinkie amputated.

"It's safe to say we're pretty much guaranteed that Robert will have a redshirt season," Marve's father, Eugene, told the Tampa Tribune. "It's a setback, but the most important thing is he will overcome this injury. God was with him and kept him protected.

"When you see him, he's hurt, battered and bruised. It's not how most people are used to seeing him," Eugene Marve said. "The healing will be a process. He's young and healthy. This will be a little setback, but I'm optimistic he will recover from this and do well at Miami."

Marve had earned rave reviews in 7-on-7's before the accident.

As a senior at Tampa Plant High School he set a state record with 4,372 passing yards and 48 touchdowns. He was intercepted 13 times.

In the state title game he helped his team to victory with 30 of 46 completions for 305 yard and three scores.

As a junior he passed for 1,813 yards and 14 touchdowns on 103 of 187 passing. He also rushed for 393 yards and three scores.

He began starting as a sophomore, when he threw for 903 yards and seven scores.

His father has indicated that a redshirt year is now likely for his son as Robert rehabilitates the injuries to his non-throwing hand.

With Anthony Redd*ck out for the year due to a torn ACL, the Hurricanes are relying on first-teamers Kenny Phillips and Lovon Ponder.

Backing them up right now is the only other safety with any experience on the roster, Willie Cooper.

"We're not worried about the depth," Cooper said. "I came in a couple of games last year and held my own. There was no let-off.

"Kenny and Ponder have played a lot, can handle it. I don't think there will be a let-off if someone else comes in."

Cooper and Tervaris Johnson are battling freshmen Joseph Nicolas, Jared Campbell and Damien Berry to receive playing time at safety.

"Everybody's competing for a position," Cooper said.

Of how he has progressed since last year, Cooper says, "It's coming well. I'm working on the little things like staying low on the back pedal, breaking down defenses, reading combination routes, stuff like that, little things that make a difference in a game."

* Of summer 7-on-7's, Cooper says, "The offense is doing well. They're throwing well, catching well. The quarterbacks and receives seem very in synch right now. The offense is doing real well in 7-on-7's."

The team's last 7-on-7 was this past Saturday.

"On defense we came around, started using some coverages that gave the offense a surprise," Cooper said. "But they came around, did well, scored a little bit. It went pretty well for both sides of the ball."

Carlos Armour had an interception in the drills.

Of how the quarterbacks are playing, Cooper said, "They're throwing it right where they need to, the receivers are making a lot of plays, the freshmen receivers are making a lot of plays."

Cooper points to Leonard Hankerson as the toughest freshman receiver to handle.

"He's doing pretty well," Cooper said. "His best skill is his ball perception he'll throw his hands up at the last minute. That's kind of hard for a DB running down the field. He's just got the little tools that make a good receiver."

Of Robert Marve's play (Marve is now expected to miss a few weeks while recuperating a left hand injury suffered in a car accident), Cooper said, "He's been doing pretty well in 7-on-7, throwing the ball to receivers, doing check down routes. He's not trying to go for the deep ball all the time like some young guys do. He's going through route progression, is doing real well."

* Of how the team is progressing, Cooper said, "We're coming along real well. The offense is starting to get more unified. The defense, we've mostly been unified, have been the strength of the team for the last couple of years. The offense is coming around, is catching up with us. I think it's going to be a good season, a good camp for both sides, both competing."

* Glenn Sharpe and Randy Phillips have been getting most of the first group action in 7-on-7's. Glenn Cook and Colin McCarthy are most often running with the first group at linebacker.

Cooper said the team has a good mindset entering this fall: "We just have a mindset that we have to play for ourselves, our self-dignity," he said. "We let ourselves down last year. I think we're going to come around this year."

Miami (FL) Columbus High School OL Mike Goodman has taken three out-of-town unofficial visits this summer: To Boston College, Wisconsin and Wake Forest.

"I like the visits I've taken," he said. "They have a lot to offer, as many of the colleges do. I'm still in the midst of narrowing things down, don't have a top five or anything like that."

Goodman has also visited UM unofficially and says he will be back for another visit this weekend.

"Saturday I'm planning to go back to the campus to see the team work out and things like that," he said. "Coach (Jeff) Stoutland gave me an open invitation along with coach (Patrick) Nix if I ever want to come back to the campus, it's fine to watch the players work out. So I'll swing by. I appreciate the open invitation. I'm going to take them up on it. I'll be around the campus. He also said Dr. (Donna) Shalala, she asked about me because I'd met her."

Of his impression of Stoutland, Goodman says, "I like him as an offensive line coach. I received a letter from him a week or so ago, just the introduction of him as a coach and the offensive line - it was an offensive lineman kind of letter. It was different. I liked it."

Goodman says there are no more out of town visits planned right now.

"I've taken all my summer visits now because I have to get ready for my senior season along with my team," he said. "We're implementing a lot of things now, so it's important for me to be there so I can be the best I can be for my senior season."

Goodman says just because he hasn't visited a school yet, it doesn't mean he won't wind up there.

And he says he truly has no frontrunners.

Therefore he was bothered by a rumor he heard that he'd committed to Boston College.

"I talked to coach Stoutland and I had talked to him because there was a rumor floating around that I committed to BC," Goodman said. "That all probably happened because I was up in Boston for two weeks, went there twice and that probably got thrown around because people were thinking if I went there a second time that I must be committing.

"I've talked to the coaches from BC, and I know the rumor didn't come from them. I liked everything at BC, but the bottom line is I talked to coach Stoutland and told him if I'd committed to BC I wouldn't be talking to him. Me, as a player, if I commit to a college, I stay committed to that college. If you make a commitment you have to stay dedicated to that commitment. I cleared that up."

Goodman says he has no timetable for making a decision.

Asked where the Canes stand in his recruiting picture, Goodman said, "Everybody that's offered me is still in the running, especially Miami."

Miami Northwestern High School WR Aldarius Johnson says he's not ready to make a commitment anywhere just yet but that "I'm leaning to Miami strong, real strong."

Johnson and his mother, Shantera, have set up a visit with Hurricane coaches on Monday.

"I set that up with coach (Tim) Walton last week, and he said all the coaches are going to be there," Johnson said.

Might he commit at that meeting?

"No," Johnson said. "Probably in the next week or two I'll have a decision."

Johnson says he doesn't want to discuss what factors he's weighing that are causing him to delay any decision.

He says he's choosing between UM, Florida, LSU and Auburn.

Johnson caught 78 passes for 1,354 yards and 19 touchdowns during the 2006 season, leading Northwestern to a perfect 16-0 record and the Florida Class 6A championship.

He set Miami-Dade County records for receptions and receiving yardage in a seaso

More details from UM crash revealed
BY SUSAN MILLER DEGNAN


TAMPA TRIBUNE
Although he's expected to miss the entire 2007 season after suffering injuries in a car accident, UM freshman is 'happy to be alive.'
More Hurricanes coverage
University of Miami incoming quarterback Robert Marve and fellow freshman Jermaine McKenzie have withdrawn from their UM summer school classes to continue recuperating from a serious car accident, their fathers told The Miami Herald on Wednesday.

Both players are expected back for freshman orientation on Aug. 2, when they will be a.ssigned their dorm room -- they're roommates -- and will prepare for a full fall class schedule as originally planned, Eugene Marve and John McKenzie said.

But both likely will miss substantial practice time and Marve is expected to redshirt. McKenzie, a highly touted wide receiver from Bradenton Academy, has hairline fractures of three bones in his neck, John McKenzie said, and could be sidelined for a few months.

''That's touch and go,'' said McKenzie, whose son is mobile but wearing a neck brace. ``The doctor at Naples [Community Hospital] said it could be up to three months -- or he could be better sooner. It depends on how he heals.''

Marve, a Parade All-American and Mr. Florida Football from Tampa Plant High, was released Tuesday and resting at his Tampa home Wednesday. He underwent surgery Monday to repair a broken left wrist, dislocated ring finger on his left (nonthrowing) hand and severe, ''but straight, not jagged,'' cut that ran between his ring finger and pinkie and extended to his palm, his father said. ``The wrist was a fracture, not a clean break, and the cut didn't destroy anything. The specialist said the nerves went together very well.

''Robert will most likely redshirt, but that's the way it is,'' said Eugene Marve, a former NFL linebacker. ``We had a little setback in our program but he will recover. Even before the accident I went back and forth in my mind whether I wanted him to play or not this season -- whether he could beat out Kyle [Wright] or Kirby [Freeman]. All those questions go through your mind. Unfortunately he was in the best shape of his life and he's really disappointed all that training has gone down the drain. He's the biggest and strongest and fastest he's ever been -- up to 200 pounds.''

Eugene Marve said Robert, more than anything, was hurting emotionally. ``Mentally he's very disappointed. He's very hard on himself about what happened. You go through the could've, would've, should've. Maybe it's like a game you didn't win; you criticize yourself, you analyze, you go through the things you could have done better.''

McKenzie left the hospital at about 9 a.m. Monday, nearly nine hours after the one-car accident on Interstate 75 while Marve, McKenzie and UM sophomore linebacker Colin McCarthy were driving back to UM from a weekend with their families in Central Florida. McKenzie fell asleep at the wheel of Marve's car and the car hit a guard rail and flipped several times.

McKenzie was charged with careless driving.

McCarthy, who sustained cuts and bruises and raspberry-type abrasions, especially on one of his knees, was otherwise healthy and returned to Miami, the fathers said.

While still in the hospital, Robert Marve told The Tampa Tribune on Tuesday, ``I don't care [about not playing football this season]. All I want to do is heal and be functional on my own again.''

Of the accident, Marve, who was initially sleeping in the back seat, told The Tribune: ``We headed out of control. Then everything just seemed to go black. I could feel that I was in the car, but I kept getting thrown around for a while. Then everything just stopped. I remember seeing my arm was bloodied. They told me I got out through the back window, but I don't remember getting out. I don't really remember much else.''

Both fathers visited the tow yard where the totaled car now sits.

''Scary,'' Eugene Marve said. ``Way scary.''

Said John McKenzie: ``For those three gentlemen who made it through that accident, there's no doubt God has a plan for them. You just don't walk out of an accident like that with a minimal amount of injuries.''

Jermaine McKenzie is mobile and was walking around his house Wednesday, his dad said. When he returns to Miami, he will have with him DVDs of the MRI and CAT-scan to give to UM doctor John Uribe, who McKenzie said will be back in town next week.

''I talked to [offensive coordinator] Coach [Patrick] Nix and spent a lot of time with him,'' John McKenzie said. 'He told Jermaine, `Go home and rest up. Don't put any pressure on yourself. Don't even think about football. Come back on August 2. Just get well, that's the main thing.' ''
