  • The Work: Miami-FSU Week

    Changing Username?-thework-jpg

    **Starting with the bad news for Miami – C.J. Henderson decommitted today as I mentioned last week was probably coming. Canes coaches have sensed for some time that this was coming; it just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to them. Not only was Miami the first major program to make Henderson a priority, but they had to talk him out of decommitting over the summer as well. After multiple campus trips, he stayed committed but sources close to the situation say that his teammates Trajan Bandy and Josh Jobe have known for a bit that Henderson was headed elsewhere. His likely landing spot is Florida.

    Who does Miami look at now as possible replacements? Latavious Brini (UGA commit) and Antwan Collier (Illinois commit) are two targets that I see as possibilities. The Canes were on Brini and he was giving the staff indications he would commit before sort of pulling a fast one on them by committing to Georgia after attending a camp up there. That surprised Canes coaches, but they didn’t necessarily view it as a major loss at the time considering Trajan Bandy was about to jump on board, as well as Brian Edwards. Now with Henderson gone, Brini becomes somewhat of a priority once again. He will be at Hard Rock stadium on Saturday night for Miami-FSU.

    Antwan Collier of Southridge is a long cornerback with ball skills and some speed. Collier played quarterback at Killian last year and plays primarily cornerback this season as a transfer at Southridge. He reminds me a lot of Sheldrick Redwine coming out of Killian two years ago and I actually think Collier is a better prospect than Redwine.

    **Now that was the disappointing news if you’re a Canes fan, but the major positive is that Miami has a chance to cement themselves in the minds of recruits this week with a win over Florida State. Take a look at the list of expected visiting recruits here (@Geo305 and I have been posting updates on Twitter as well). Also shout out to Geo for maintaining and updating the list on the link below. I suggest refreshing that page throughout the week as we continue to add names.

    ATH Deejay Dallas - Glynn Academy (GA)
