2015 QB Tiano Enjoys Miami Visit

2015 QB Tiano Enjoys Miami Visit

Tito Benach
2015 Baylor (Tenn.) quarterback Nick Tiano has been working hard this offseason with almost no days off to improve his game.

“I’ve been working with my quarterback’s coach every day of the week. I’ve been lifting Monday, Wednesday, Friday and I do speed and agility on Tuesday and Thursday. Everyday after that I’m working on my game; just trying to master the craft of playing quarterback and just trying to get better every day and improve on the things that people have been telling me I need to work on. I’ve got to see some colleges and compete in some Elite 11’s and just get ready for a big season this year.”

Tiano was able to see a large number of colleges during the spring which included trips to Tennessee, West Virginia, and Miami.

“It was great to see all those colleges and see what they have to offer, because each one of those places is going to be different and the coaches are gonna tell you different things. It’s kinda cool to see the different conferences, the size of the school, is it a small school or a bigger state school. Just trying to find the place that I fit in best at academically and athletically that’s a good fit for my family and I.”

The 6’5 220 pound quarterback got an opportunity to spend sometime in Coral Gables and experience what it’s like to be a Hurricane.

“It was great, My dad an I went there and we really love Coral Gables. Being at the university we really expected it to be this huge, spread out campus, but really you feel like your not even in the city of Miami which I thought was really neat and the campus was beautiful. The coaches were great; I got a lot of time to spend with coach Golden and coach Coley. It was cool to talk them about the kinda things they see me doing at Miami.”

The Tennessee native quarterback also liked the academic side of Miami as well as the program in general.

“ I got to see the academic advisor and see how great of an education I can get there. It’s just a great school, a great place and a historic program. I got to see guys like Jimmy Graham and Ray Lewis and they were telling me that those guys always come back to train there because Miami’s such a great place.”

One aspect that truly intrigued Tiano was the style of the Hurricane’s offense and how it’s ran.

“I really liked the offense they run, it’s pro-style, but you have some shotgun sets, some under center sets. A lot of passing mixed in with a good running game. I think it’s the perfect offense for me and my skill set. I really like what they have their quarterbacks do in the offense and all the playmakers. I got to hang with Stacy Coley and some other receivers and the offensive line. They’ve got a bunch of great players and they should do some big things for them this year.”

The visit seemed to be a success for Tiano so much that he rated his visit a perfect 10 out of 10.

“It’s a 10, it was a great visit. It was everything I ever dreamed it to be and they treated me like a priority to them and that goes a long way with me. Coach Golden also spent a lot of time with us and that was a big thing to me and it was just a really good visit and me and my dad both loved Miami.”


The Baylor product is looking to visit Miami again sometime in the summer if not for a game during the fall. As far as when fans can expect a possible commitment?

“It could be as early as May, but could be as late as July because I want to make sure when I commit. I’d liked to be committed and take that one official visit that I’m committed to. I’d like to be done by the summer.”

After Kaay, I am inclined to trust Coley on picking lesser know QBs. This kid will probably blow up too. But it would help recruiting to land a big name early.
 
I think he wanted to commit, but they want to wait for Torrence Gibsons decision first. They only want 1 QB
 
A Tennessee kid loves Miami and a Florida kid loves Tennessee. Crootin!
 
The real question is how long before Gibson and Wimbush really decide they aren't coming so the staff can move on and scoop this kid up...speed up the process they knw where they want to go...usually QBs do...when was the last time a Big Time QB waited till signing day to sign with a school?? I think Wimbush winds up at PSU with coach Franklin, and Gibson goes to Tennessee or Auburn....Crootin' at its Finest.....
 
I'm glad Gibson commiting early so we cam move on.I really like Tiano. But love sunshine from Flanagan. Tiano looks like a nfl qb size wise.
 
I personally prefer the more prototypical QB compared to the dual threat guys. I think we have started a thread on him before and I stated I love the measurables and that hasn't changed. He is 6-5 230 lbs, per 247.
 
Does anybody know if coley was the one that found coker before everybody else?

don't know the answer to that question but just checked his 247 profile and interestingly he was only a three star prospect.

Coker still hasn't proven to be anyhting more than a 3 star QB. People got a chubby over him because the QB race was supposedly so close last summer, but again the dude never showed much on the field.

Pretty sure Craig was the primary recruiter for Coker and Winston (Alabama area).
 
Tiano has Arm Strength, Accuracy, and Athletic. 6-5 220. He plays in a run first Offense that hurts him alot but i believe that will change his Senior Year. This is a Coley Special

he probably was the primary recruiter, but he had to run it by Coach Coley who was the offensive coordinator...if Coley wasnt high on him, then I dnt think he would have been there..
 
I like this kid and he's more likely to commit than Wimbush or Gibson. If Gibson commits to Vols, then Tiano commits to Canes. I think we got a better shot with Wimbush than Gibson. Gibson is clearly headed to Vols, OSU or Auburn. Unlike Tiano, I'm not in no fashion impressed with Coley's offense. Its very high schoolish and simplistic.

You can't show much when you're behind the eventually Heisman winner there were reports saying the staff was torn on the decision.
