Manny being Manny "let's take a 3 star project from Dade"One of the biggest mysteries of this cycle. Every other school is all over this kid except us and we are the school that is the closest to him. He checks all the boxes, don't understand.
LISTEN UP, we back to basically recruiting the old Miami way, only certain type mentalities are being recruited here. Coach rumph along with the rest of the UM coaches are not about to start recruiting desparate, either you a Cane or not. They already showed em what he needs to see, but know this, coach rumph and crew can sniff out gaytor blood real quick, so if he wants to come to UM, he got his offer, sign, if not, we already like what we got in our room and what's on the way. Everything elam said he looking for, he already know he can get all that at UM, coach rumph not wasting his time with the diva mentalities, he looking for goons, he's one, he played with many and he bringing in more.
Look how corn elder looked in one year under coach rumph, was out there head hunting, got jackson being projected as a high draft pick in just one year under him, malek young was on his way to being a 2nd or first team acc corner. Coach banda and rumph got the safeties playing at a high level with jaquan being out done by no one in all of college football.
So the choice is elam's, coach rumph done did his part, no money bags dropping, that comes down the road when earned it at GreenTree practice field and get drafted, other than that, you can sign with us or get beat by us!
You still keep at least a minimal level of contact on local top recruits as a show of respect. Keep the "back channels" openYou'd think these are things that would take him off the radar completely. He says Rumph still texts him every now & then. Why waste time at all if we don't want him?
The problem is we have no traction with any big time recruits right now. Bogle, Neal, Stevenson, and MAR are all enjoying the process and are not leaning in one direction. If it's going to be a big commitment it will most likely be from a 2020 or 2021 kid and that still wont alleviate what's going on.I'll be so happy when a big time recruit commits so everyone can step off the ledge smh..
We have plenty of traction with the aforementioned players. We are considered the team to beat in all of their recruitment's at the moment.The problem is we have no traction with any big time recruits right now.

I also dont like when the board is in disarray but when the coaches are cooling off on big targets and other targets are looking elsewhere, it results in what we have now.
It's July. Things can change in the matter of a week. Bogle and MAR (whom I think ends up at Miami) are likely NSD decisions. Don't know what's going on with Neal. Stevenson looks like it's a toss up with UGA and Miami. With the way UGA recruits, I don't want that one going right before he EE's.We have plenty of traction with the aforementioned players.

I suppose anything is possible, but he doesn't fit the typical profile of a kid that falls in these buckets. He goes to a good private school so I'm doubtful grades is an issue. Bag game/off field? Perhaps, but from everything I've read, his dad seems to be raising him as a solid kid and is eschewing the bag game.Let’s not jump to conclusions, last year we didn’t give Nadab Joseph any attention, and Dude didn’t qualify.
Maybe grades are bad
Maybe some off the field things bother us
Maybe he’s in the Bag game and we know that
Maybe we just Dont like him as a prospect
This isn’t the Golden Era, there has to be a reason but we may never know.
Bogle is flirting with Tennessee and isn't dead-set on Miami, constant Neal-Bama smoke(most forget he was committed there at one point), I'd say Stevenson is the most secure but there's been talks of him loving UGA, and MAR with the "building his own legacy" talk.We have plenty of traction with the aforementioned players. We are considered the team to beat in all of their recruitment's at the moment.
