**It seems Miami is losing ground on RB DJ Williams. According to a source close to the recruitment, Miami is still in the game, but Williams is favoring Georgia and Auburn over the Canes right now. Apparently, these schools are selling Williams on better offensive line play than the Hurricanes, and the pitch seems to be hitting home with the Sebring back. Clemson is also beginning to get involved here as well. Mark Richt and Thomas Brown are scheduled to go in-home with Williams today, so Miami will have a chance to gain some ground here.


**Although his Crystal Ball currently favors Georgia, confidence is apparently high inside of Hecht that Miami will eventually land Tyrique Stevenson. A program source feels UM is close to locking the Miami Southridge star up, but just needs to get mom 100% on board. Miami thinks they’ll be able to do that on his official visit, which will be the final weekend before early signing day. Bottom line, I’m not as confident in my Georgia pick here and could be close to flipping to UM depending on what chatter comes out of his OV weekend.


**I continue to hear very positive things on Jadon Haselwood to Miami from a source close to the recruitment and I’ve heard nothing to make me change my UM pick here. It’s shocking to me that he has not even locked in an official visit to any of Auburn, Tennessee, or Georgia, schools thought to be Miami’s main competition a month ago. Haselwood is making his announcement on Jan. 5th and time is really running out for other schools to make a move, as the dead period begins in less than two weeks (Dec. 17-Jan. 10). As I’ve said, if someone is going to overtake Miami at this point, it would be UGA, and the Bulldogs are the most likely to get an OV these last two weeks. Still, confidence from Miami’s side has never been higher.


**Sources are mixed on Keon Zipperer right now between Miami and UF. It seems like he’s telling different people different things, so this recruitment is going to be hard to get a read on as things get down to the wire. With all else being equal, I’m leaning towards the Gators as of now, but hopefully things become more clear after Zipperer takes his officials to UF and Miami these next two weeks.


**Much has been made about Miami LB commit Avery Huff’s recent flirtation with Florida State. The St. Thomas Aquinas star hosted FSU coaches for an in-home visit last week and told them he would take an official visit in the final few weeks before the early signing period. However, from what I’ve been told, that visit to Tallahassee is unlikely to happen. Huff will be in Orlando on Friday for the State Championship game and plans on staying in Orlando through the weekend with his family. The following weekend, he is planning on being in Miami to take his official visit with the majority of his classmates before the dead period kicks in. The only possibility of going to FSU would be to take a mid-week visit next week. In addition, Huff recently told me his commitment to Miami was “still strong”. Expect him to sign with Miami in 2 weeks.


**2020 Woodbridge (VA) LB Antoine Sampah had a planned visit to UM a few weeks ago, but was unable to make the trip due to travel issues. After talking with the standout linebacker, Sampah made clear that he is “definitely” coming for a spring visit to see Coral Gables, even if he has to fly. Sampah previously told CIS that Miami was in his top 8 schools. The Canes absolutely have the 5-star’s interest and it will be intriguing to see how this relationship progresses.


**The Canes are set to host a loaded official visit weekend. The 7 confirmed visitors include: OC Jakai Clark, DE Justin Eboigbe, DT Jason Munoz, DT Derick Hunter, LB Anthony Solomon, CB John Dixon, and S Martin Emerson. Both Solomon and Munoz are participating in the State Championship game for St. Thomas in Orlando on Friday and are expected in Miami on Saturday morning; however, they could end up moving their OV to the following weekend as well if travel plans don’t work out. Follow all the official visit action with our OV tracker *here*.


**In-home visits that are scheduled for today include: RB DJ Williams with Richt and Brown, RB Jalen Mitchell with Diaz and Banda, DT Derick Hunter with Richt and Banda, and LB OC Brothers with Diaz and Banda. Follow the action with our in-home visit tracker *here*.

you don't see it happening bc of anything or just bc your opinion? believe it or not, some kids still like miami lol and he seems to be one of them. its still recruiting so a lot can happen, but this hasn't been a secret
Just my objective opinion. I agree there are some kids that love everything about miami but i feel like other factors ($$$) usually trump that. That's why It would be a huge victory. This kid has star appeal that could change the program.

How tf are we going to lose on EDGERRIN JAMES nephew...
bc those ties dont really matter that much anymore? kid is getting courted by the SEC heavyweights and Clemson and hes not from SFL. also, it wasnt like we were the first to be on him for years and years. he was an App State commit and then us and other came calling a few weeks ago basically.

@Stefan Adams Any coaches planning on being in Orlando for the multiple championship games? Obviously the St Thomas vs Lakeland game is 2019 impacting but the Colombus and NW games are key for 2020/21 as well. A total of 6 S Florida key teams playing in one place over 24 hours.

I dont think Hasslewood Steveson or Bogle are basic 2 or 3 stars
They're not. But I don't seem them signed yet. I don't see them enrolled yet.

No doubting Stefan's work and it's much appreciated. Positive momentum is good but at the end of the day it's only momentum. We've all seen that feeling good about somebody ultimately makes no difference.

Theres a contingent of people who post who jus like to ***** and complain regardless of what's going on. In there minds nothing positive is going on and the more they ***** and complain the better they feel.
It has nothing to do with that. But if you look at the way things are going it's not unrealistic to think that things will continue down the same path.

You can choose to be an optimist but don't blast people for being realistic.

Exactly my point. He's talking about these guys being locks. And I'm saying judging by how things have been going, these kids are not coming. And we're going to have to scramble for some plan C kids.

It would be a huge statement if they steal Haselwood. I just don't see it happening despite all the smoke. Playing for the home team, national contender, future all american qb, and top receivers are probably declaring. But we shall see
He doesnt want to be in a small city... Fields might not be there... And what receivers declaing early Ridley... 😂😂😂😂

i mean, based on info from everyone, it seems that we have a REALLY good shot at Jadon, Bogle (im not sold on him coming personally bc troll), and a few others. doesnt mean theyre locks bc no one in recruiting is a lock. you also cant generalize and say theyre not coming bc of before since every kid is diff and every kids priorities are diff when looking at schools.

Stefan,

Lots of good info..... BUT, we need OL. Anything new? We can have every other piece but with no OL you see what you get already. Thanks.

And he will probably ends up to a program that offered after us.

Smh.

I will never understand this logic
It's the arrogant kid attitude thats out now. UM had a plan like 112 other FBS schools which is why he was with App St and sure we came late but we offered with everybody who was late and he can follow his future HOF relatives path but what a surprise that doesn't matter

If you are a defensive player, why WOULDNT you want to play in this defense? We are a top 3 D in the country and #1 pass D in the country. People can say what they want about Rumph and Banda but what else can they do to show a kid like TStephenson that if he comes here he will be a star in this D playing Safety.. Ask Redwine and JJohnson. Esp Redwine who was a 3*, only played safety for 2 years, and might slide into the top 3-4 rounds of the draft!

I have no idea what voodoo we put on Hasselwood to make this kid be interested in coming here. Everytime I see those updates my mind is blown. Our offensive recruits are jumping ship and he is still on the titanic playing with the band!!
