The Work 10-23

**Canes fans were once again questioning Josh Jobe’s commitment yesterday when he posted an Alabama picture. I warned months ago that he would continue to post these edits, but it would not mean anything about his pledge with Miami – that remains the case.

Checked in with a source very close to him today, who said that Jobe messaged him earlier today saying how excited and ready he was to get back down to Miami for good. He will be in town during Notre Dame week and plans on being at the Coral Gables campus throughout the week as well. As of now, it does not look like he will be able to enroll early at UM (which was not expected), but there is a good chance that he signs during the early period of December 20-22.

Jobe will be part of the official visitors group on December 16th weekend that the Miami staff has strategically designated for the Storm 18 class members. That will be their final pitch to prospects like Jobe and Nesta Silvera who have still not officially decided if they will sign early or wait until the normal first Wednesday in February.

**Today I posted the midseason highlights of 2020 RB Don Chaney, Jr. and with good reason. If you haven’t checked it out yet, he has all the makings of a 5-star prospect and top 15-type player in his class. Multiple sources have told me in the last week that Chaney, Jr. could be making a commitment in the near future – with the Hurricanes holding a solid lead. Chaney has been to nearly all of the Miami games this season and was out there with his father on Saturday for the Syracuse game.

**An update on the early enrollment status of the tight end class: Will Mallory, who was back in action last week after missing most of the season with injury, told me today that his school does not allow early enrollment so that is a no-go for him. His welcome back game was a monster performance that you can watch below.

Brevin Jordan, the Canes’ other tight end commit in the class, is also not allowed to enroll in January due to Bishop Gorman’s rules. Miami’ spring depth at the position will be an interesting topic of conversation considering Chris Herndon is graduating and Michael Irvin, Jr.’s status is currently in the air.

Both Jordan and Mallory are planning on signing during the December period, however.

**DT commit Nesta Silvera has turned up his play in a big way the last two games – with back-to-back 3 sack performances against Cardinal Gibbons and Jackson. He has 56 tackles and 7 sacks in 7 games this season. Silvera told me tonight that he also plans on being there for the December 16th weekend. Miami is attempting to get top defensive back target Tyson Campbell there for that weekend as well, which is very possible.

**Mike Harley is dealing with what can be categorized as a high ankle sprain – the severity of it remains to be seen. He will practice this week without contact and hopes to give it a go on Saturday. If the game was today, it would be unlikely that he played.

Thanks.

I think Nesta wants to wait til February because he wants to see whether mcintosh and Norton declare for the draft. Maybe Nesta wants a decent shot at being one of the top 4 DTs and knows that likely won't happen if either or both of those guys return.

Norton leaning towards leaving.
 
Seems like good news all around. Let's keep it going! Sign Tyson. Anything new on Nik Bonitto? I REALLY want Bonitto in the class. Canes got momentum baby
 
Definitely need to bring in a JUCO or Grad Transfer TE.

Also, what's the word on Sitkow? Does the staff not care that he was benched & literally isn't playing during his Senior year?
 
Thanks Pete.

Chaney's running by people like they're standing still.
And I see Mallory is working on his bubble-screen moves.
 
Bummer to hear the Tight Ends aren't able to enroll early. Sounds like it'll be Patchan-Patchoff in the spring.

So can I presume that McIntosh is leaning toward staying?
 
How does Alabama get guts like Jonathan Allen and Reuben Foster to come back for their senior seasons and we have guys jumping ship asap?

Not sure, but I wouldn’t presume that, no.

would hope he wouldn't run from competition.

Reuben Foster was looking like a 4th-5th round pick. Plus they get "love" up there.
 
In the spring is time for POLENDY, PATCHAN to get alot of reps.

Hell not sure if Irving would be a grades casualty then...so lets see. Dont think we need another te in the class though
 
Bummer on Mallory and Jordan not enrolling early. Should a juco TE be considered? Also, will either Davis or Lingard be enrolling early?

[MENTION=3894]Peter Ariz[/MENTION], do you expect Sitkowski to still be in this class, and if so, will he be the only QB?
