2015 DT Fines Trying to Bring Miami Back

2015 DT Fines Trying to Bring Miami Back

Tito Benach
Hurricane coaches weren’t expecting Manatee (Fla.) defensive tackle Ryan Fines to make his pledge, but he had been planning to do it for quite some time.

“Me and my family had been doing quite some research over the past few weeks into the university of Miami and the more we researched, the more we loved about it. We were kinda leaning towards me committing yesterday. All it was, was just me seeing the campus and when I went there it felt like family there.”

The 6’3 292 pound tackle felt at home in Coral Gables and cited the family feel as one of the main reasons for his commitment.

“Just the family atmosphere, pretty much the whole campus was super nice and I felt really comfortable with talking with anybody there.”

The Hurricane’s staff was caught off guard by Fine’s commitment and were excited to see him jump on board this early.

“They were thrilled, I think some of them were a little surprised because they didn’t expect for me to commit this early.”

Fines recapped the experience he has while on campus and what he rated it.

“Well first I would rate it a 10 out of 10, it was unbelievable. I got there around 9:00 or 9:30 with coach Kehoe. Pretty much the entire day he showed me around campus, and I met all the coaching staff and people from the school of business and communications because that’s what I’m going to school for and I just saw pretty much everything.”

The Manatee product got a chance to actually talk football with defensive line coach Jethro Franklin and what he would be doing in the Hurricanes front four.

“We talked about the defense, how I fit in their defense. I’m pretty much a 2 gap player, but there’s times where I charge the quarterback too. I also talked about how him and the rest of the coaching staff are fathers because sometimes our parents are half a country away and they’re the people we go to for advice.”

When asked to describe his style of play, Fines used only one word.

“Physical.”

As far as goals go for Fines, he said it’s rather simple.

“It seems like everybody says this, but to bring it back and get a national championship because the Hurricanes are on the rise right now and I want to be apart of the group that brings it back to dominance.”

How mant DT recruits take pride in being physical 2-gap linemen? Usually you hear "I want 15 sacks as a freshman" and that attitude and entitlement is reflected in inconsistent effort against the run.

Love this kid as a prospect and I wish we could duplicate him. Thanks for the interview.
 
New secret weapon in recruiting DT's -- let Art Do It? Heck, he seems t finish up the Oline recruiting early now so why not.
 
"I’m pretty much a 2 gap player, but there’s times where I charge the quarterback too." OH BROTHER! New Year same Shiat.
 
You guys do know that most 3-4's are built on 2-gap principles..? You do this to compress the pocket and get your linebackers AND edge rushers (Thomas, AQM, McCord, Smith, DJ..) to attack. With our recent run on LB's that can play downhill with a little space and our recent miss on attacking DT's the 2-gap is how we should go about things until we develop some aggressive space eaters..till then let the big boys take up space while Perryman blows ish up..this year our numbers should be better on the DL so those 3 to 4 space eaters we had last year should rotate upwards towards 5-6 which gives them more energy and creates more plays to be made. Now this is how its "supposed" to run I can't wait till Labor Day when we'll find out what this team is capable of.
 
There are (3) coaches on staff that can truly spiritualize what it mean to be a Hurricane, Art, Michael, Hurley. Art is the best of them all.

The Jets 3-4 is actually a 1-Gap scheme. Same with the Seahawks, Niner's, Texans, and Cowboys. In college, these schemes are way too complicated to install. You need to have the kids doing less mentally and more instinctively.

Truth on everything, but ALL of these teams start out teaching 2 gap stuff, FIRST. It's the "base" of the 3-4 defense. Those teams don't use it much, but it's in their package.
Cowboys, as of last season, are now a true 4-3 team.
 
Guys....

Fast break spread college offenses cannot be stopped.

Auburn raped the best D in the nation...FSU. Look at what Texas A and M did to Bama.

I want our focus to be on building a dominant offense.
 
Our defense is going the Utah Jazz route after we land Patchan too. Oh noes.

oh brother! Hate it when we bring in 2 gap players, that Wilfork guy really sucked here..
 
Kid uses his hand pretty well...impressed me when i saw him playing next to a div 1 prospect....has some type of pursiuit ability i essentially see him as a NOSE.....

- Reminds me of a Big 10 dt....kid wont rack up stats while here but the lbs will love him......he'll be a factor by soph season imo.

Bradenton is Gator Country...glad we go out sw fla every year and try to snatch 2 or 3 prospects

No.
 
1 gap, 2 Gap, Who the phuck cares! Can the MF'er play ball is all that's important. Made a couple calls to friends in the know and both think he's on par with D. Christmas (FSU 2014) from down there. They said he is smart , has good technique, strong as a ox, can't be blocked by one OL and is very aggressive. Also said his stock will rise and many more will be offering.
