    Back in March, Guyer High School (Texas) 2017 tight end Brian Polendey visited Miami for junior day and left the weekend as a commitment. Although it was a whirlwind for Polendey, he seems confident that his pledge is solid.

    “It was all new to me at first, but looking back on it, there was a lot going on with school and football so I wanted to get it out of the way. I feel like I saw enough to make the right decision,” explained Polendey. “I'm set with Miami. I don't really see the...

    Miami is making a concerted effort to stay as local as possible at the skill positions going forward. One of the South Florida playmakers that Canes fans are excited about is 2017 Carol City wide receiver Kevaughn Dingle (6-1,185). The big-bodied wide out is not shy when describing his abilities on the field.

    “My playing style is swag, physical, and aggressive. I call myself ‘Up Top’ because I like to go get it. Anything in the air is mine, so that's how I think of it,” Dingle explained....

    Spirit Lake High School (Iowa) 2017 offensive lineman Zach Dykstra is going a bit against the grain. Rather than decide to stay close to home and be a Hawkeye or Cyclone, Dykstra announced last month that he will be traveling south to become a Hurricane.

    “It was always Iowa or Iowa State. My brother was going to play basketball at Iowa State, but he ended up changing his mind. So we were big fans during that period. I still have a bunch of Iowa State stuff,”...

    Shawn O’Dare always wanted to be involved in football. The game was his “whole life”, as he put it. So after his playing career at the University of Miami finished in 2012, the former Hurricanes wide receiver began his two-year journey to becoming a certified NFL agent.

    The path to being an NFL agent for the former Miami Hurricanes wide receiver was not an easy one. It involved a year of graduate school at ‘The U’, a $2,500 background check, and passing the NFL’s certification test in July 2015, which had a success rate of only 39% last year.

    On top of becoming certified by the league, prospective agents must be certified in each state and school that they ...

    Although most of the chatter surrounding Miami’s nationally-ranked basketball recruiting class has been about Dewan Huell and Bruce Brown, one name to keep an eye on is 6-2 Australian combo guard Dejan Vasiljevic. Vasiljevic led the Australian U-19 national team in scoring with 13.3 ppg during last summer’s FIBA World Championships and is currently playing in Australia’s Diamond Valley Basketball Association in the senior division before he starts at Miami on May 14th. Get to know the Canes Hoops signee in this Q & A, which shows he does not lack confidence. ...

    These are some observations from the watching all three scrimmages and a few practices:

    If I could describe the last few years of the Golden era in a word, it would be “frantic.” Starters like Deon Bush rotated constantly with less-talented backups. We shifted back and forth from pro-style with Kaaya to spread-option with Rosier. Even Golden’s post-practice interviews seemed scatterbrained and paranoid.

    Richt brings predictability and stability. He’s already had success and is confident in his system. Every practice looks pretty much the same. There’s...

    That was an entertaining scrimmage. The team played with lots of energy and they made big plays on both sides of the ball. One thing you notice right away is that, aside from RB and DL, there isn’t a lot of rotating. The starters are the starters. No more musical chairs at offensive line and safety. The staff projects a very stable, confident vibe.

    Brad Kaaya is the truth. He was accurate all day at every level of the field. Just like last week, he came out and immediately...

    **The following is based on what I've been told by multiple sources.**

    **One of the first and maybe most important notes from the scrimmage was that there was very little rotation in the first units other than DL and RB. Walton and Yearby took a majority of the first-team reps at running back. Quan Muhammad, Courtel Jenkins, RJ McIntosh, and Trent Harris started on the first team defensive line unit, with Gerald Willis working in at both the end and tackle spots. Chad Thomas and Kendrick Norton were rotating in with the first team as...

    **The most frequently asked question from fans this spring seems to be something along the lines of “what is the biggest difference between this staff and the Golden staff?” Well, the answer is there are a ton of differences. First, I will say that from a recruiting standpoint, high school coaches truly respect this staff. When Golden was here, a majority of HS coaches did not take the staff seriously, quite frankly.

    **Sources have noted to me that the ...

    **Miami made a big move with Deejay Dallas this weekend. Dallas visited on Friday and I have been told that it was major for Miami's chances. Dallas left before Saturday for his school prom, but a sign that this is serious is that his family visited the next day on their own. The family was in town for a friend's birthday party, but for them to come the day after without Deejay shows that the Canes are a major...
