    Ditto. This is Patrick Johnson all over again.

    Exactly, I hope Patrick Johnson or Peterson or prima donna or whatever in the hell he calls himself nowadays enjoys the extra benefits he received from LSU.

    To be honest, the best CB out of the state last year so far has proven to be Jenkins for the Gators. To start and excel on the National Champs team as a true freshman?

    Luther Robinson is in. Fears the Gators had flipped him can be laid to rest.

    Miller will make it official in about 15 minutes.

    Richardson? We'll have to wait til 1:30PM.:cry:

    So far, so good. No defections but no surprises.

    Tiller is still undecided (Rutgers, Syracuse, Miami) and may or may not sign today.

    I really hope we land Richardson.

    And yes I did let out a HUGE sigh of relief once Armstrong and Dye's papers were received.

    I am hearing Billy Sanders switched back to us from UCLA, looking for confirmation.


    Edit: Confirmed from Scout, Sanders is a Cane.

    I've said before and I'll say it again....

    RS and Co. are RELENTLESS.

    If we can pull in classes like this after going 12-13 the last 2 years - Imagine what we'll be able to do once we start winning again?!?!?

    As Urban Meyer said - "You'd have to be outta your freakin mind to not come play for the Canes."

    Well he said Gators - but you know what I mean.

    If we get Richardson - I'll be doing naked cartwheels in my office the rest of the daay.:sidelol:

    Ok - looks like I won't be getting fired today because Richardson is 99% certainty to go to JUCO. He doesn't have the grades.

    We stay on him and try and get him in next years class.

    I am still very happy with this class and glad we did not use all of our Scholarships. We addressed our major needs in OL, Big RB, DL and DB. Although I think we could have used another CB in this class.

    We can use the additional scholarships on what is shaping up to be a very, very good class coming out next year in South Florida. Miami Northwestern and St. Thomas Aquinas are loaded with talent especially.

    Yeah I agree. We didn't suffer any major defections. One more CB would have been nice because we are thin there.

    BB would be icing on the cake for this class.

    Did you read where Hurtt said Ray Ray is up to 225lbs. I see another Sean Taylor with this kid.

    He'd be a solid get.

    I'm leery of BB. This Brian Butler guy just spells bad news.

    Rivals = Meltdown right now.

    I really don't understand the typical Miami fan. 5-7 followed 7-6 yet they expect EVERY 5 star kid to sign with us.:pity:

    They need to go back and check out the top one hundred five star recruits over the last four or five years. For every stud there is a dud.

    They all want instant gratification and THE BIG NAME instead of focusing on the roster depth and actually letting a coach do his job like god forbid actually COACH.

    Nice class. Not a tremendous one full of 5 star recruits but solid. Prince Kent and Jamal Reid are big gets. Prince is a guy that I think may play Safety eventually. A big frame but lacks the long speed from what I've heard. Plein's a kid who I've heard a lot about and everyone really likes him. McGee is a nice get as well.

    That ones going to hurt a bit. He's a kid who could have lined up at OLB or any spot in the defensive backfield.

    As you stated earlier - we didn't waste any scholarships by taking chances on kids that may not pan out. Ferman just echoed the same thing. We're going to need these scholarships next year in what everyone knows is a loaded year in Dade where's lets face it - since Randy has been in charge, we've gotten just about every kid we've gone after.

    No. 6 Class according to ESPN.

    It includes Bryce Brown who at this point, I really don't care if he signs with us or not.

    I don't know how they can include Bryce Brown when I just saw them on TV and Bryce Brown was listed as undecided.

    Part of me feels that BB is waiting for the brown bag. And I mean Brian Butler not Bryce. Sad thing is he's giving the kid bad advice.

    Two DC Finalists are...

    Dick Bumpas and Joe Tresey...


    Now these are just two of the names being rumored. I would expect that if an offer does come - one of these guys will jump at it. If Dick is No. 1 on Randy's list - he better move quickly because L$U is said to be hot for him too. I'd prefer Tresey for the simple fact that if you watched any of the Bearcats games last year - they're a very good tackling team, a sore spot for us last season.

    BTW - is it me or does Dick look like our old friend Howard?
