Best post on the board in a good while. Doesn't deserve to be lost in this thread (which is already great for other reasons). If you're willing to do an interview, would love to hit this topic with you in the offseason and turn it into a main board article or series. So much more to talk about re: Safeties, for example. Communication is completely teachable, but another one of those skills that needs openness from the coach/player. It's hard to teach communication because it needs to be practiced. And, without it, even if you have a Safety who recognizes route combinations and formation tendencies, your secondary will consistently break down. The spread (offense) has made certain "soft" skills as critical as attributes like speed.
Agree 100%.
And I would love to do an interview. I can talk ball all day, brother.

Once we fix our CB recruiting you'll see Miami playing at a higher level.

The fact is, we just haven't had elite cover corners here in a long long time & it impacts every other aspect of the Defense. It's become more glaring because in the uptempo spread era of football we're in now it's even more imperative that have at least 3-4 CB's that can cover & we sadly haven't had that.

The key to improving this Defense is fixing the backend, once we cover better it will give our DL more time to collapse the pocket & allow those delayed Blitzes more time to get home, obviously most of us would rather we stop running them damn Blitzes altogether but we all know as long as Diaz is here that's not gonna happen lol.

With the rumors that Muschamp could be getting fired soon or at least by season's end, Diaz should seriously consider bringing in T-Rob on this staff, aside from his great recruting resume, he developed Jaycee Horn into one of the best CB's in the nation, that's exactly what we need in a CB coach, someone who can both recruit & develop talent.
I agree , FIX .......”CB and LB” ... Both positions needs to be fixed

Which high schools in south Florida do the best job of “development”? Obviously certain places recruit talent but you can recruit and not get great results. Which schools stick out to you? You don’t have to cap it at south Florida

STA, HERITAGE, CHAMINADE the privates

Depends on positions to. For example Miramar usually have tough kids on defense and a minimum of 2 div 1 dbs yearly. Carol City kids are usually tough as well. As far as OL its STA and Miami Central.
Deerfield where Macho coaches puts out an absurd amount of div 1 kids yearly.

In Palm Beach, Atlantic is a good program as well. Doesn't get the recognition because they haven't won a title, but they're a good program year after year.

They knocked us out of the playoffs lastyear.

Usually have 4+div 1 kids a year. Crazy how we havent landed anyone there since Rumph.
