The Miami Hurricanes just picked up a commitment from Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS OL Corey Gaynor.
Miami offered Gaynor on Saturday prior to the game against Duke and view him as the potential center of the future. Coaches will in-home visit with him on Friday. He was previously committed to Minnesota before the game.
Stars are well-nigh useless when evaluating OL, IMO. What I look for is footwork, hands, leverage/balance, burst, and aggression.
This kid has some major nasty in him. I like his footwork in the power/pulling guard game. Pretty good balance in pass protection. He locks up with defenders well, though I'd like to see a bit more technique out of his hands (sometimes it looks like he's just shoulder-charging or wrestling defenders to the ground.) Anybody know what his competition level is?
