Mario and the Hurricanes are ready to keep it moving past Kevin Coleman with Cyrus Moss in tow. Despite the Jackson State shocker (SARCASM ALERT FOR THE READING IMPAIRED: Please don't go to FSU Deion), the Canes jump to 36th in the recruiting ranks on 247. The Canes are still in prime position to finish strong and within the top 15. Who are the prime targets remaining?

Shemar Stewart - OV JAN 28TH

The Gem of the Targets. Considered a must get by some, the top prospect from south florida is a lynch pin type player who can anchor a defense, and would fit beautifully next to Leonard Taylor. A&M is the big threat with all there money, and Jackson State should be considered a darkhorse at this point.

Josh Conerly Jr - OV JAN 14TH

Conerly Jr, recently named the Anthony Munoz lineman of the year, is one of the largest targets for Mario, figuratively and literally. The Washington native was ready to commit to Oregon in late November before Mario came to Miami and is now seriously considering the U. Some feel Miami is the team to beat here.

Christen Miller - UOV JAN 28TH

The Georgia product is another new target like Conerly and has been getting tons of attention on the trail from Miami. While UGA is the current favorite, if Miami can make a move while he is on campus (would need to be UOV, has taken all 5), this one could get interesting quick.

Jahlil Florence - OV JAN 14TH

Former Oregon corner is getting all the love on the trail from Mario, TRob and crew. Only OV currently set up is to Miami on the 14th. With a top 5 recently released with Miami included, this is now a real one to watch. With his high school teammate Jalil Tucker still committed and signed to Oregon, it will be a fight, but one worth the time.

Trevonte Citizen - OV TBD

This one is a tough one to read or trust, with Citizen courted heavily by A&M and LSU. With Miami's RB room in flux, Citizen is difficult to get a read on. The previous staff was not going to add a HS RB here but the incoming staff feels differently it seems. Hopefully A&M has run out of money and corny ass Brian Kelly turns Citizen all the way off.

Dave Iuli - OV JAN 14TH

The massive offensive lineman hailing from Washington could be the first of many Somoans to trade coasts on the move to Coral Gables. Mirabal and Salave'a are the reason for that pipeline and have begun to run away with this recruitment. Fully expecting Iuli in this class.

TJ Dudley - OV TBD

Been quiet here but one worth mentioning with the current state of the LB room, the relationship with Mario and, he's really friggin good. Auburn is probably the team here until Dudley sets up an OV.

Jack Pyburn - OV TBD

The late bloomer looking like baby T.J. Watt blew up the TL with his nasty highlight type out of Jacksonville. The high motor player is high on Cristobal and should he get the green light, will be in this class.

Mason Thomas - JAN 28TH

The first half of a package deal, Thomas is another late bloomer who has a tweener frame but a type of player and personality you want on your team and in your locker room. Currently committed to Iowa State, it seems. like Pyburn, the green light to commit is all that is keeping Thomas from joining the Green and Orange.

Ahmed Moten - JAN 28TH

The other half of the Mason Thomas package deal, Moten, a Miami legacy, is a player that has been on Mario's radar far before coming back to Miami and a player that seems to love what Mario and Miami have to offer. Another Green light, hope he doesn't get squid gamed, kid is a take IMO.

Matthew McCoy - JAN 14TH

A bit of a mystery but the towering tackle was recently reoffered by the diminutive Mirabal. He visited the last weekend Manny was our Corch. Has been an active Gator target. If an OV happens I'll pay more attention to this.

Update 1/10:

Gracen Halton coming 1/14
Matthew McCoy coming 1/14
Christen Miller coming 1/28

Gracen Halton - JAN 14TH

The 6'3 270 edge, currently committed to the Ducks for almost a year, will be in town on the 14th to visit the coaches that have been his family of sorts for nearly two years. Very densely built, athletic, some baby weight to transform but has very consistent good habits on the line. While I foolishly did not include this young man in the previous version, his recruitment is one to watch closely with the relationship.

If you know more targets or info or drop it here.

I think it’s a two team race between LSU & Auburn for Trevonte Citizen, with Miami on the outside trying to catch up.

TAMU has 28 commits & already has Le’Veon Moss signed, no way do they have enough room for him.

With Etienne committing to UF today, I think LSU will turn up the heat on Citizen, Brian Kelly hired RB’s coach Frank Wilson & gave him AHC title in order to save local Louisiana recruiting & I don’t see them letting Citizen get out of Louisiana with already losing Le’Veon Moss, Trevor Etienne, Dylan Sampson & Ajay Allen locally.

Jahlil Florence is the most important recruit left IMO, he probably won’t get the high priority attention as the OL/DL guys because the trench players is the only thing that matters anymore lol, but I don’t think people realize how long it’s been since we’ve had a quality playable 4-star Corner that you don’t have to sit on the bench for 2 years before he can play. Florence would be a HUGE get for the growth of this Defense going forward.

We cannot let him leave Gables without LOI signature, he can announce whenever he wants to, but we can’t let him visit & still miss on this one, gotta start rebuilding the CB room with talented pieces like him.
Isn’t it funny how everyone was worried if we could finish with a top 25 class. Any 2 commits would bring us into the top 25 with only 12 commits. Even a single commitment from Iuli, Stewart, or Conerly would get us into the top 25 with just 11 commits. We have a very real possibility of sneaking into the top 10-11 with a 17-18 player class.

In the longterm of things that's not something we will look back at and say...if only. We are gonna get many WR like him. Don't care what we rank as its a cumulative ranking. What i want is every player coming in to be quality and so far we have done that.

Thanks for the writeup. I keep reading from the putz South Florida writers that Canes will have a small class (around 16), and while that may turn out, it appears Mario and Co. will sign more. Appears closer to 20 between HS and transfers.
