I don't have any inside information that leads me to this conclusion, but my prayer is that Byrd and Finley are all Canes.

BREAKING: Sources close to his recruitment expect Wellington 4-Star WR Ahmmon Richards to sign w Miami over Alabama & Auburn tomorrow #Canes Posted by: Ohio_Cane | February 02, 2016 at 01:55 PM Great news. Finally, its great to win a recruiting battle with Alabama, Auburn (Richards) and Ohio State (Bruce). If Williams and a few more surprises, this will be the greatest WR class we have had in years. Several NFL draft picks will come from this class.

Pretty cool how Buchannon and Van Dyke are sending encouragement to Byrd and Richards. Wonder if CMR is on board with that.. Posted by: Go Canes! | February 02, 2016 at 09:40 AM That is a good sign on so many levels

ESPN, who I think is more accurate has us ranked 14th with 11 4-Star Players. I believe this is a more accurate view of our class. Posted by: UMike | February 02, 2016 at 08:23 AM I agree. From the recruits I have seen play in High School, we have some good players.

READ THE BLOG FEATURE ARTICLE! Posted by: SOUP | February 01, 2016 at 08:51 PM Great article from the archives, Soup. LMAO, at the D-No quotes. Best interview by any reporter during D-No's tenure. You must have studied at the Barbara Walters' school of getting an interviewee to reveal his true self because that interview captured D-No's true essence and character

Anything can happen in the ACC. UVa crushes Louisville by 20 on Saturday. Two days later, Louisville beats UNC. The ACC is deep, and no team is capable of winning by just showing up. Canes play Notre Dame on Wednesday, and they need to win to keep their ACC title hopes alive. If the Canes do not bring their A game, they will not win and their hopes for an ACC title will fade

Richards and Byrd would make a great class. I realize it is tough for Byrd to part ways with someone he considers his "brother," but the Canes present a better opportunity for Byrd to make it into the NFL. I recall watching Byrd play against Central in the playoffs at Traz Powell, and was thinking that Byrd was the best player on the field that night, and that included a FSU safety commit Cook for Central. A ton of Canes coaches were standing there on the sideline. These coaches were all subsequently let go by Richt. In the back of my mind, I wondered if that might effect Byrd if they kept in touch with him. That night, Byrd clearly wanted to show Miami and the coaches at the U what he could do. Frankly, I was stunned by what I saw. I kept checking my iPhone, and I said there is no way that recruit is a three star. Manny Navarro was also there covering the game on the sideline. At that time, some bystanders on the sideline were saying Byrd is a "beast." Central fans said that they had do give him his due because he was very, very good. There was some chatter about Tennessee, but I think they were referring to Fils-Aime. Bottom line is my uneducated theory is that I think that some local coaches could and their relationships with the Canes may have gone too far under Golden, in an effort to accommodate them by coopting them. With the petty jealousies and envies among local coaches, if the situation is not handled properly, it can create something of a toxic situation with the U and the local coaches. I think Richt is doing the right thing by hiring the coaches that he did. Only time will tell whether this will pay dividends, but I think the best way to get these recruits attention is to win and put players in the NFL. Results in these two areas mean everything to these local recruits and their families, while everything else is just talk and used car salesmanship.

I find it interesting to watch some of the latest moves with CMR heading into NSD. CMR must expect a decent haul of recruits. Happy to see the Canes did not get shut out at OL and also pick up a solid a DL. Both do not have to play right away, so they can come in and develop under two really good, experienced coaches.

http://www.stateoftheu.com/2016/1/31/10880060/miami-hurricanes-recruiting-national-signing-day-predictions-2016 If Cameron Underwood is correct, this will be a great first recruiting class at the U for Richt.

That Canes 2017 recruiting class is shaping up nicely

Forgive me, but I am excited about the Canes getting a 4 star DT commit, who had offers from all the big programs. I agree that The SEC better start hiding their recruits form CMR.

Ford is 6'5" and is a growing 11th grader. Ford is getting offers form all over. Coach Kool bringing in the DTs.

Canes struggled today. Fortunately, the ACC has parity and aside form UNC, every good ACC team is capable of losing or beating any other ACC team

The Canes offense has failed them during this critical stretch
Toggle Commented Jan 30, 2016 on NSD Flashback: 2011 at Canespace
It starts on D. Intensity leads to turnovers and transition. This game is winnable, but we have to get stops

Refs are not giving us a break. Canes will have to beat NC State and the refs

Ford is also gives the Canes another recruit in the ESPN 300. CMR has a few more surprises before NSD. Don't underestimate CMR

Ford is 6'5", 280 lbs and still growing
Toggle Commented Jan 30, 2016 on NSD Flashback: 2011 at Canespace
I am happy with the DT commit. 6'%", 280 lbs, and still growing. Under Coach Kool, I expect great things. One more DT, and this will be the best DT and DE class in years.

Good to get back to Dillard pipeline. CMR and Coach Kool surprised everyone. Ford is a solid DT, and he happens to be local. CMR is doing serious work. CMR is quietly and methodically putting together a very impressive group of recruits for this 2016 class

In order to be considered the greatest QB in Canes history, the QB has to have a ring. Kelly was the QB with the greatest NFL career, and Testeverde was right behind him, but the QBs with the greatest performancds in Canes uniforms are Kosar, Walsh and Dorsey. Kaaya doesn't have a ring YET
Toggle Commented Jan 30, 2016 on NSD Flashback: 2011 at Canespace
Kaaya will not be a serious Heisman candidate if the Canes loose 3-4 games. Kaaya is a Heisman candidate because the Canes will win 10 or more games. Saban did not have a QB like Kaaya his first season. Even Mark Richt in 2001 his first year at Georgia, was 8-4, with a freshman David Greene starting. The Canes will be a well-oiled machine by the time October rolls around, and they will be better on both sides of the ball and up front. Their most experienced position coaches are OL and DL, and they will be better up front. CMR will make a big difference

Richards said he loved in-home visit tonight w/ Miami HC Mark Richt: "He has my best interests at heart." Posted by: Ohio_Cane | January 28, 2016 at 10:01 PM No recruit, including Richards, could ever say this about Saban. CMR is genuine. The love his UGA players showed when he left says it all - CMR is authentic and means what he says

CMR is slowly putting together a pretty good recruiting class. CMR has a few more surprises before and on NSD. This class is already better than any class since 2012, and this class might end up deeper in terms of quality. CMR is creating momentum heading into NSD and he is closing the deals all over. By the way, my guess is that Duggans' mysterious tweet was a message to encourage and inspire a recruit who has haters because of his interest or commitment to the Canes.
