(me) Talking about Miramar you got a new QB in Daniel Richardson how do you feel he can help elevate the program?

(Brian) I need to work on my speed, I also need to work on getting stronger and developing over this season.

(Brian) Louisville, Utah, Miami, Syracuse, North Carolina & Others. He also said that UF is going to offer in the spring.

(me) What are you top schools and what schools are always in contact with you

(Brian) i don't really have a top list of schools right now & UF

(me) With the new coaching staff have they been in contact with you

(Brian) Not really but they said they will start talking to me in the spring so I'm not worried

(me) How do you feel about Mark Richt and the new DB coach Mike Rumph?

(Brian) I've talked to Mike Rumph before because i was suppose to transfer to American Heritage my 10th grade year. It would be great to go to Miami and get coached by him because i know he's a great coach.

(me) What do you feel will play a big factor in your decision

(Brian) Academics is going to play a big factor with me, my major is going to be big and i want to have a great bond with the coaches and teammates.

Al Blades Jr. 2018 University School CB

(me) How do you feel you performed this season?

(Al) I didn't get a lot of ball thrown my way but when they did i tried to capitalize on that. I think i ended the season with 3 or 4 interceptions my coaches moved me to S because i wasn't getting a lot of action my way. I feel like i had one game that really tested me and that was the game against Clewiston facing 6'5 Miami commit Reginald Henderson, he caught the most passes on me, he had tremendous jump ball skills he just didn't have route running

(me) Asking about Reginald do you feel he is going to be a good addition to the Miami class?

(Al) I feel like he will be great at Miami, i felt like he was getting slept on because he went off the radar for a long time. I would say if he had KB as his WR coach it would of made him a even better WR, depending on the new WR coach is going to play a big factor in developing him.

(me) What current offers do you have? and what school haven't offered but they're shoving interest?

(Al) I have 12 offers i have West Virginia, LSU, Alabama, Miami, FSU, FIU, FAU, Rugerts, South Carolina. UCLA is showing interest Clemson i don't really know right now because I'm an underclassmen so they can't really talk to me so its just social media right now

(me) Has Miami went off the radar for you? and did you feel it was too early to make a decision?

(Al) They will always be on the radar. Yeah i felt like it was really early, i did no research and i committed because of my family background. I have to do research and make the best decision for myself.

(me) What are you looking to study in college?

(Al) Yes i have decided already, i actually take college classes in high school I'm taking anatomy and physiology because i want to go into sports medicine and I'm also taking some sociology honors right now. Im looking at either Medicine or Sociology right now

(me) So do you have a top 5 and if you did have a leader who would it be?

(Al) i don't have a leader as of now but if i did have to choose a leader it would be a close call between Miami & FSU

(me) Since you said FSU i know you posted that pic a little while ago would you say you kind of regret posting that and did the coaching take it serious?

(Al) They didn't take it serious because i was young and my family backgrounds at the time i was 14 and wow time really went by, but i was with my 7 on 7 team at the moment it was just us playing around, we didn't know it was going to go that far and it really exploded. It happened and i hope the coaching staff have no hard feelings about it.

(me) Are you looking to take any visits this offseason?

(Al) Yes i really want to get around, i want to go to California to see UCLA because i like coach Demetrius over there \

(me) If there was one thing you want to say to the CanesFam what would it be?

(Al) Im still here
2018 Booker T. Washington LB Robert Hicks

(me) Talking about your season how do you feel you performed this season having 70 tackles, 34 assist and 1 forced fumble

(Robert) I think i did good this season, i could of had more sacks but i did good.

(me) Do you feel you, Jaquan Beaver and Marlon Pelote are the leaders and core of the defense?

(Robert) Yes Sir

(me) What offers do you have and what schools are showing interest.

(Robert) Miami, FIU & FAU. Norte Dame, Ohio, Oregon & Clemson, i was talking to the Norte Dame DL coach and he said he was going to offer me this spring.

(me) It you had an early favorite who would it be? and can another school change that?

(Robert) Miami & not really i really focus on Miami right now

(me) Are you, Jaquan and Marlon going to college together??

(Robert) That's the plan

(me) Was Miami kind of the childhood favorite?

(Robert) Miami is my dream school

The KB line is telling how much kids down here respect him

If Blades is even considering FSU he doesn't truely understand who his dad and uncle were.

Blades was telling me that the only reason why FSU is very close with Miami is because they're always in contact with him. He says that since there's a new staff that he knows its going to take time for them call him and he's an underclassmen so he can't have full contact with the coaches.
 
That Cam Davis kid from CC is the truth, beat me to the punch posting about him. I definitely hope he ends up a cane. Its critical we start winning big now so these young kids growing will not forget the history of the U.

post what ever information you want about him, the more info the better
 
I've said for a while that carol city is stacked with talent and I'll say that it could have been a feeder school for the U. This staff should make a better attempt at making carol city a priority.
 
CC finally kept alot of their optomist feeder kids....

Realize they actually could/should have Cameron Davis, James Cook, and Nayquan Wright. Thats 3 div 1 rbs.....

They also have an optomist legend at qb that was a freshman whoc ame in with htose guys.

Bruh you're talking about Lorenzo Floyd aka "Baby Russell Wilson". Kid's gonna be a blue chip 4/5* guy when it's all said and done but he's been overshadowed by some of the dudes you mentioned since optimist days. Hell, he's even living in his little brother's shadow, who might be the #1 overall player in his class.
