The Work 11-6: It's recruiting season

**The legitimacy of nationally ranked receiver Jeremiah Holloman’s interest in Miami has been more than confirmed this weekend.

Deejay Dallas warned Canes fans earlier this week on the CanesInSight podcast that Holloman was being real with about Miami’s chances of landing him. The 6-2, 190-pound 4-star receiver arrived in Miami on Friday with both of his parents, was another signal of where the Canes stand with Holloman. Sources say that Holloman’s parents were extremely engaged in the game, cheering on the Hurricanes. It doesn’t hurt that true freshman receiver Ahmmon Richards had 8 receptions for 144 yards.

After the game, people who had been with Holloman during his visit said that he even considered making his decision this weekend and they would be surprised if he was not a Cane by the time he enrolls at a school in January.

My prediction is Miami.

**Tight ends coach Todd Hartley is aggressively working to flip his second commitment of this cycle. Hartley was the primary recruiter of linebacker commit Bradley Jennings, Jr. who made the switch from FSU. Now Hartley is looking to add the 2nd TE commit of the class in Oregon pledge Tre McKitty.

McKitty was on campus on Friday with IMG, marking his 2nd trip to campus in the last month. McKitty took his official visit in October. He was not at the game yesterday as reported elsewhere. He is an early enrollee and right now I have him pegged as a flip to the Canes. Brian Polendey, Miami's current TE commit, was in town this weekend for his official visit as well. Hartley said this week with a smile that there was definitely room for another tight end in the recruiting cycle. Polendey has told me before that he had no problem welcoming another player at his position either.


**There are no concerns from Miami's end on the commitment level of Navaughn Donaldson, who was at the game against Pittsburgh yesterday. Donaldson said yesterday that he will visit Florida next week, FSU on the 26th, UNC on December 1st, and then the Canes will get his final official before he enrolls in January.

Donaldson has been up front with the Miami staff for a long time that he planned on taking visits, but he has indicated that he is solid with the Canes. As I've said countless times, Donaldson is a starter at Miami from the moment he steps on campus.

**Miami commit Deejay Dallas thinks of himself as a trendsetter and this move certainly classifies as trendsetting. Dallas told me he plans on majoring in Real Estate at the University of Miami. School reps confirmed that if Dallas follows through with his plans, he would be the first football player to ever major in Real Estate, which is a relatively new program.

The program began four years ago at Miami, and just last fall it became a designated major under the finance department with its own set of classes.

Dallas officially visited Miami this weekend and a lot of credit would go his way if the Canes can land Holloman

**Offensive line commits Zach Dykstra and Zalon’tae Hillery were also on their official visits this weekend. I will have full updates with them this week.

Has Holloman already had OV to Tennessee and Georgia? I hope going home without a commit doesn't make him start to rethink staying home to play for Georgia.
 
We finish strong, win out, and we'll recruit well.



Limp to the end of the season, like always, and we'll keep losing recruits.
 
Good news. Holloman may just replace Coley as s starter- at the very least compete with Mullins to be the starter.

We must be losing a TE
 
Bad news is he hasnt took his ov to uga or tenn yet.

Staff maybe thinks that Herndon or Njoku leave after the year. If anything, both of the incoming guys can red-shirt.
Where would Herndon go? Njoku isn't NFL ready, his drops will kill his stock. We are preparing for the future by taking two TE. One receiving TE and one blocking TE. That would give us 6 on the roster which is perfect for Richt who will use two TE in the same set.

Tennessee is a dumpster fire and I have a connection up there I'll ask about Holloman and see what he says. He knew about Byrd and Williams flipping before anyone else. Georgia is the biggest threat but Richt should be able to sell himself and experience over Smart at UGA.

Not worried about tenn but it is supposedly one of his top schools. Uga is definitely the team to worry about. They are offering his brother a chance to come as a walk-on too to try and sweeten the deal.
 
And a little development at WR and we will have a nice mix at that spot.

I'm worried about Mom wanting him to stay close to home, it's good that she was down there this weekend. We are going up against "Elite Recruiter" James coley.
 
What was the deal with the "snake in the grass" tweet yesterday? Somebody negative-recruiting against us?

Tennessee is his top school & has been for awhile now... People swear he's so dedicated to UGA, but he's not, his Mom is a UGA fanatic and wanted him to stay home, but she's given him the okay to go to Miami.

Holloman has been high on Miami since he decommitted from Michigan, if we would've offered him right then, he would've committed on the spot back in May/June. He just needed to take an OV to get down here on campus & be within the environment to confirm what Deejay has been telling him for months about us.

The only way JH ends up with UGA is if his mom forces it, otherwise it's a two team race between us & Tenn, and we got the lead.

The key is to get him back down here for the Duke game & we'll be locked in for January when he announces at the Army All-American game.

There's a thread on the UGA 247 site where they're calling for Coley's head. LOL.
 
Holloman, smith and Harley would be a great way to solidify the wr position. Good stuff, thanks Pete.
