Sheldrick Redwine is “an old guy” during a new era in Miami

A different aura has surrounded the University of Miami football program since Mark Richt took over in December. It has only been less than a year since Miami’s 58-0 defeat at the hands of Clemson in October, yet much more has changed this offseason than days on the calendar.

With the departure of players such as Artie Burns to the NFL draft, a new breed of players have had to learn a different coaching staff, scheme, and way of life on campus.

But despite all this change that has taken place within Miami’s football program, sophomore defensive back Sheldrick Redwine is the same, consistent, guy.

“I don’t think of Redwine as a young DB,” defensive coordinator Manny Diaz said after practice today. “Even though I know he has only been on campus for 15 months, he’s an old guy for us, because he has been in a college stadium before.”

After practice on Thursday, Redwine said he has done a lot of work at cornerback with the ‘Canes first-team, and has also worked hard this offseason to improve every part of his game.

“I’ve developed well,” Redwine said. “Going through summer workouts -- I’m bigger, faster, stronger, and I don’t put up numbers this year that are the same as my numbers from last year.”

The theme of this offseason has become consistency for the second year cornerback. According to Manny Diaz, Redwine has improved because he is the same player in practice every day.

“What I like about Redwine is that he is the same guy every day,” Diaz said while praising the consistency of his young defensive back. “He is a consistent worker -- works hard, very coachable, tries to do the technique exactly the way that Coach Rumph explains it to him, and that is what that position is about.”

During Richt’s short time on campus, Redwine has embodied what Miami needs at cornerback. As Diaz put it, “It is not about who can flash, it’s about who can do it consistently down after play.”

Hard work and consistency are traits Richt and his staff have been trying to hammer into this program, and Redwine could be ready to display his progression on gameday. At 6-1, 195 lbs, Redwine presents the prototypical tools to make an impact at this level, and Miami’s influx of young receiving talent has helped him get better every day.

“Going against them every day, you know, we always say between the corner group we probably face the hardest receivers we gonna face in practice,” Redwine said one day after Miami’s first scrimmage. “After going against them guys, when we go to the games, we feel like every other receiver is going to be [easy].”

Whether the reason is because of his consistency, Miami’s new scheme, or his tough competition in practice, Redwine has turned a corner and become an integral part of Miami’s defense.

“A guy like Redwine is a personality you like to have on your defense,” Diaz said. “Because that [consistency] is really what he embodies.”

“What I like about Redwine is that he is the same guy every day,” Diaz said

God, please do not ever say "same guy every day" again. I am ready to fire Diaz right now for merely saying Golden's stupid words! Redwine needs to kick Diaz's rear for that.
 
Redwine will hold it down. He's a big, fast and skilled CB. We'll be strong at CB if not deep. Good safety support deep and we'll be fine with the expected pressure up front.

You do realize every coach in America says that, right?
 
I think Redwine is going to have a huge breakout year for us.

Y because of this article?

I think he will be aight.......prolly our weakest corner. How is he going to play when we load up next year
No, not because of this article, because I think he's been developing into a better player since Spring and thus far in Fall camp.
He's a solid Cover corner with good length, he's not a blazer, but I think he'll benefit greatly from this scheme & have a lot of chances to get picks in this system.
As far as him being our "weakest" corner, I vehemently disagree... Unless you're talking about among the starters, but overall definitely not our worst.

Next year is next year, we don't know who will playing next year & I wouldn't assume our entire 2017 freshman class is going to come in and start right away.

If the Coaches are trusting him to be a starter, then I'll take their word over everybody else's depressed negative ass outlook on everything concerning the Canes.

Probably from having 3 years college experience and heavy PT this year. I really don't understand why people think every freshman OT and DB can come in and just start right away
 
Dwins,
So much wrong with such a short post!

Try reading more and posting less.
 
Love the comments about our receivers! He's gonna do fine this year and really put it all together! Just hope everybody else follows suit!

I agree with that, but that's next year, I'm talking about this season.
I think Red will do well for us this year & honestly he really doesn't have a choice. He's going to play a lot this year & in order for us to win he needs to step up big time, and if the Coaches are trusting him with that responsibility then I'll ride with it until proven otherwise.

If the pass rush is legit the back 7 always will look like pro bowlers its why bama dbs are busts and its y dbs go there. They know they will have a tough front seven it makes them look good and then they rob the nfl for paper
