Booker T. offensive lineman Jose Jose transfers to Central

Here's some breaking news from sources close to both teams:

J.T. Wilcox

Miami Herald Writer

 

All-Dade offensive lineman Jose Jose officially transferred from Booker T. Washington to Central Monday.

 

Jose (6-3, 330-pounds), who verbally committed to Tennessee last Tuesday, helped lead the Tornadoes to the 2007 Class 4A state championship.

 

Jose will be joining a Central team that went 7-3 last season and lost to Northwestern in the regional semifinals.

 

Jose will likely anchor the Rockets offensive line as a guard, however he experience at both center and tackle.

 

Neither Jose, Booker T. coach Earl Tillman, or Central coach Telly Lockette could be reached for comment.

How do you tranfer from Overtown to 91st without moving? This should be the last straw!! Dade High school football is getting crazy now. I seen Edison kids go to Norland. Braddock to Northwestern; what is going on? But Fernandez, Wilcox, and Blustein are chicken to do a in depth story. I pray a freelance reporter does it. This why my son will not play in Miami but in Texas instead!

The young mans family moved. To the previous comment. Its too bad you feel that way. Florida football is far superior then Texas. The truth hurts.

The kid's grandmother is ill and it's his desire to stay close to her. The coaching staff was just as surpised as anyone else when the young man showed up. Funny, schools like Pace, Gulliver and Northwestern are notorius for recruiting players but no one ever suggest that an investigation should take place. Let Central get a star player and everybody and their mama want to shine the spotlight on us. Even Cheryl Golden, the head of the GMAC, got into the act and called Booker T coach to "suggest" to him that he should file a complaint. And she did this without knowing all of the facts. But of course, she is only looking after her own interest because Northwestern has always been her personal cash cow. If anyone needs investigating, it should be her and how much she has gotten paid under the table by personally low balling Northwestern attendance, especially in big games like the one vs Central.

this fat slob wasn't even attending spring practices.

he'll be back in the hood selling drugs in 2 years after getting run out of college

Booker T Washington

Booker T Washington still going to state and we don't need jose jose when we just got WR Ted Meline and QB Bidler Dorlean

Fairley,
Stay in school son! If you know your facts it doesnt matter if he "moved" , he still can be 8 tracked. Ask NMB about that or MR. Do It Fluitt of Norland. Texas has more money for their sports anyway. Schools that doesnt have a state championship in any sport has better equipment and playing feilds and are "black" schools. And I do own a home in Humble Texas if you must know.Son your comments make Miamians look real dumb. Stop listening to Trick Daddy, IceBerg, Lil Wayne, and your beloved Rick Ross so much.

RICK TRUTH SPEAKER

THE FUNNY THING IS THAT IN BASKETBALL MIAMI HIGH WAS KNOWN FOR YEARS FOR DOING THIS AND NOTHING HAPPENED UNTIL THEY RECRUITED BLAKE FROM MIAMI KILLIAN HIGH SCHOOL. THEN THE TIDE CHANGED AND THEIR COACH RESIGNED QUIETLY?????. I GUESS AT THAT TIME THE THOUGHT OF MIAMI HIGH INTIMIDATED MOST PEOPLE FROM SPEAKING THE TRUTH, BUT ONCE THE TRUTH IS OUT. THE TRUTH PREVAIL. WHILE I'M NOT IN FAVOR FOR ANY SCHOOL TO RECRUIT ANOTHER PLAYER'S ATHLETE. ANY TIMES THE STUDENTS AT ONE SCHOOL ARE FRIENDS OF STUDENTS IN OTHER SCHOOLS AND LET'S FACE IT. ALL ATHLETES PREFER TO PLAY AT A SCHOOL WITH A DYNASTY. THEY WILL TRY AND GET THEIR FRIENDS FROM OTHER SCHOOLS TO PLAY ON THEIR TEAM.SO BEFORE MR. JOSE IS JUDGED AS WELL AS CENTRAL. TRY AND GATHER THE FACTS FIRST. I HAVE TO ADMIT HE IS A VERY FORMIDABLE PLAYER, BUT JUST BECAUSE HE TRANSFERRED TO CENTRAL DOESN'T MAKE HIM A VILLAIN. NOPE I'M NOT FOR CENTRAL I'M A PROUD NORTHWESTERN ALLUMUNUS. I JUST BELIEVE IN SPEAKING THE TRUTH NO MATTER HOW CONTROVERSIAL IT MAY SEEM. II TIMOTHY 1: 7

country

that qb dorlean is not all that and the wr meline

country

Tex he was not a fat slob wen you guys had him. Kids transfer every year so get over it.

genron187

Its nothing wrong with transferring. Its the american way. You always want to put yourself in a good to better situation than anything else. Leave it along.

dat right der

you should have been left big guy i think thats a good move 4 u to block 4 gainer.

Yahoo

BLOCK FOR WHO??? GAINER, does he have ANY GRADES!!!

MJG 96

ALL OF CENTRALS PLAYERS HAVE NO GRADES THEY GOTO SOME PRIVATE SCHOOL WHERE THEY SUPPOSEDLY DO THEIR WORK. SOME NOT ALL OF THESE COACHES DONT GIVE A HOOT ABOUT THESE KID'S FUTURE AFTER HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL.

manny

BTW still going to the ship with out the fat ass that takes plays off, why do you think UM haven't offer this guy, because of that reason i wish him luck on whatever he does hopefully this decision don't bite him on the ass...... when central looses to the West on the second round againg, while BTW is in the championship game.

manny

and by the way that stuff about his grandmother is a lie, am not saying that the lady is not ill, but we all know is football related that guy have no loyalty to anything, how can you tell BTW coaches that you are going to night school. when you are really going to football practice at central, on the day he transfer he didn't talk to BTW head coach about the moved he could not look at that men on his eyes. that tells me alot about his character and the type of kid he is but once againg i wish him the best

Central will loose to the West on the second round

alex

man leave the poor guy alone he must of transfered for a reason

BIG MAN

manny, were was the head coach when they pulled a GUN ON HIM ? he did not have the guts to call his mother.don't talk about the coach that gave the gun back TO THE OTHER PLAYER.by the way UM did offer him.GET A LIFE MAN, THIS IS A STUDENT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT.IN BY THE WAY HIS GRANMOTHER IS VERY ILL.get off the westballs.

manny

Big Man, as far as I know every coach was there all you doing is reading the herald giving your opinion on what you read, so am not going to get into details with you about the gun thing, because you don't have any idea how that situation went down so am going to ignore that comment. about his grandmother been ill if you read my post I never said I doubt it that, but in this county people talk to much and all the staff at BTW know this is football related and they know who is the guy behind this move, and bout the west balls sorry to tell you but central don't have what it takes to beat the west, proud graduated of NORTHWESTERN BULLS BABY class of 95 that's why I said the rockets don't have enough to be the MIGHTY BULLS look what happen last year in the playoff they can't beat us when it counted…..One last question how many championships central have let me know because I can’t remember………….

manny

sorry i meant beat the bulls on my previous post
