catching up and looking ahead at some football

Homestead might be the school with the most Division I signees on Signing Day this year.

Two of their studs committed to Rutgers over the holidays.

Rutgers_logo Defensive back Joseph Nicolas, however, according to Canesport.com is going to visit the U next weekend. It would be a major steal if Miami can sway him. Nicolas played both DB and WR for the Broncos, who had arguably the most talented team in Dade behind Northwestern.

Defensive end Jamiel Farrington was the other Bronco to commit to the Scarlet Knights. Farrington (6-3, 235 pounds) has been clocked at 4.7 in the 40 and is a heck of a blitzer.

The long arm of Greg Schiano once again scooping up some good local talent to Piscataway. Farrington and Nicolas make it four commits from Dade (Central OL Edwin Alvarez and Sunset TE Fabian Ruiz committed months ago) and at least seven from South Florida.

Randy Shannon's impact has already paid off for Miami with their WR signings and locking up Doug Wiggins.

As far as Homestead goes, Alphonso Bryant is still out there (says he's leaning toward the Seminoles and maybe UNC). Also uncommitted is athletic QB A.J. Guyton and monster LB Maurice Harris.

Those guys and others will be at tomorrow's All-Star game at Traz. I'll be there to see one of the best displays of football talent in the state...or the country.
