**The QB recruiting scenario is developing quickly and I expect the Canes to lock in on a couple of targets in the near future. Torrance Gibson
is not coming to Miami and Brandon Wimbush
just committed to Penn State. Who is up next? One name in the mix is Dwyer QB Daniel Parr
. Parr is a personal favorite of James Coley’s and he very well could wind up being the QB in this class. I know Canes fans might not think highly of Miami’s chances with Parr due to the program’s lack of success recruiting Dwyer over the years, but I think this situation is different. Parr is still slightly under-the-radar and Miami was his first big-time offer, which will be a huge recruiting point. If he continues to progress the way Miami thinks he will, then he will garner more offers but Miami will always have the point of emphasis that they were on him first. Last recruiting cycle, we saw what happens when James Coley makes a lightly recruited QB his priority and my hunch is that we will see something similar progress here with Parr. On the field, Parr put up great numbers last season with 42 TDs and 6 INTs and helped lead Dwyer to a 7A state title. We will learn a lot about him this season when he does not have his three big weapons in Johnnie Dixon
, Clint Stephens, and Tavares Martin
. Good athlete with some juice on his ball.
**There are reports out there that suggest Carol City CB Rashad Fenton could be committing to Miami soon, but I have been told that he does not have a committabe offer at this point. Miami likes him, but would not take a commitment from him at this point. I am personally a big fan of Fenton, but Miami has prospects higher on their board at the moment
**When Quentez Johnson
called Al Golden a few weeks ago to commit, Miami was stunned because they liked his upside, but had not necessarily been expecting him to commit without visiting. His decommitment was not a surprise to them because they accepted his pledge knowing it would be extremely difficult to hold on to. In my opinion, Johnson will end up at a lower-level SEC school such as Mississippi State or Kentucky.
**The first summer session begins at UM next Monday, and that means more incoming recruits will be officially beginning their college careers. Here is a list of prospects who are expected to move into their dorms over the weekend and start classes on the 19th:
The second summer session begins on June 30th, where Terry McCray
, David Njoku
, and Darrell Langham
are expected to enroll. Trayone Gray
’s status is still up in the air. Any of these names are also subject to change depending on any clearinghouse issues that have not come to light.
**New Jersey WR Irvin Charles is an absolute priority for Miami right now. The coaches view him as Tyre Brady
2.0 with his size. Between Brady, Langham, Herndon, and Njoku it is obvious that they are trying to get as big as possible at the position. Berrios had to be SPECIAL to warrant an offer and he was.
**The full court press has been on Tim Irvin
for some time now and I am told that his mother is really pushing for him to stay in Miami. The Canes have the upper hand at the moment.
