Canes get 2018 commitment from Jalen Patterson

The Miami Hurricanes learned Friday that they picked up their fourth commitment in the Class of 2018 and it comes from Citra North Marion athlete Jalen Patterson.

Just a freshman last season, Patterson, who plays both sides of the ball but projects as a defensive back, already looks the part of an elite recruit on film with his blazing speed and pursuit of the ball.

"Two words: Big time," said North Marion coach Stephen Field, former head coach at Miami Northwestern. "Just an all-around athlete with great instincts, and he's physical."

Added Patterson on his game, "I like to hit." He's been told by coaches they like his speed and athleticism.

Patterson got the offer on Thursday and on Friday decided to join a class that consists of two other DB commits in University School's Al Blades Jr. and Thomas Burns from Northwestern, who is the brother of current Cane Artie Burns.

In an interview with Rivals, Patterson said, "I wanted to commit right away when they offered."

With his Signing Day so far in the future (Feb. 2018), he added "it's going to be hard" for another school to catch UM by then.

He told me: "I like their defense, especially their defensive backs."

He has other early offers from Oregon State, West Virginia and Mississippi State and says Alabama is about to offer.

Amir Rasul headlines strong senior class for Coral Gables

After Shaquery Wilson took his talents to Georgia and several other talented defensive prospects moved on, Coral Gables is looking strong with its senior class once again.

At the top of the list is running back Amir Rasul, who at 6-0, 192 pounds is a four-star recruit on most sites.

Rasul committed to UM in January and had his recruitment blow up since, gathering more than 20 offers from all over the country. Even USC has come all the way to the East Coast to visit Coral Gables and check on Rasul.

“He’s offered from coast to coast,” Coral Gables coach Roger Pollard said. “Every school in the nation has recognized his talent.”

With all the options that have opened up for Rasul, who is also an elite track talent and is spending the spring away from the football team running track, his commitment to the Canes should be considered a soft one. When asked, Pollard could not confirm how firm Rasul’s commitment is currently but said he will sit down with him when he rejoins the team in June.

While college coaches love Rasul’s track speed, they love even more that he runs like a football player with that speed.

“He doesn’t run like a track guy. He runs like a really fast running back, and I think that’s why so many people are really in love with him and what he can do for their program,” Pollard says. “People want home run hitters, and with the type of speed he possesses, he’s a home run hitter.”

Coral Gables’ trio of senior linebackers in Shakur Cooper, Gee Stanley and Robert Brown is one that will spearhead the Cavaliers’ defense and pick up some steam in the players’ recruitment in the fall.

Cooper, at 6-1, 210 pounds, is a four-year starter in Pollard’s defense. He was second-team all-state last season and recently received an offer from FAMU to add to a list that includes Appalachian State and Alcorn State.

“If he was 6-2, he’d be recruited by every school in the nation because his ability to rush the passer – you can ask anybody that’s played against us – he’s got a special knack, a lot of unteachable skill,” Pollard says. “Once that ball moves an inch, he moves two feet.”

Pollard plans on using Cooper, who goes by the nickname of “Pooh Bear,” all over the field his senior season and not restrict him to just outside linebacker.

Stanley (6-2, 200) has started since he was a sophomore and is a sideline-to-sideline outside linebacker who has also seen time at strong safety and lists offers from Alcorn State and Robert Morris since receiving an offer from Temple in the fall.

“He’s really quick in the box, quick with his feet and really knowledgeable in what offenses are trying to do against us,” Pollard says.

Brown (6-1, 195) is a South Miami transfer that Pollard describes as an “effort linebacker.”

“He’s going to run, he’s going to take you down,” Pollard says. “Wherever the ball is, he’s going to do whatever he can to get there.”

Alcorn State and Bryant University have offered Brown, but he’s also receiving interest from FIU and New Mexico.

“I don’t think there will be another linebacking corps with this talent. Usually you’ll have one stud, but with these three, pick your poison,” Pollard says. “If you block one, where’s the other?”

Quarterback Voshon Waiters currently lists one offer (FAMU), but Pollard expects his recruitment to heat up over the summer and in the fall once the season starts.

“I think with the numbers he’s going to put up this year, people are going to hit the brakes when they come by Coral Gables, and it’s not just for Amir Rasul,” Pollard says.

Pollard wants to take him to camps at FIU and FAU because he feels with how meticulously quarterbacks are recruited and offered college coaches need to see him in person.

He says Waiters has solid size at 6-1 to see over the line and runs the Cavaliers’ spread offense, which is very popular in college, to perfection for his unit.

Redwine ready to report to the U

**ALSO MAKE SURE TO CHECK SUSAN MILLER DEGNAN'S STORY FEATURING SHELDRICK REDWINE**

I had a chance to catch up with Sheldrick Redwine, the 6-1, 193-pound cornerback coming out of Miami Killian that will be enrolling at UM – which he has previously called his “dream school” – for the start of the Summer A session on Monday and moving in to campus on Sunday.

The offseason has not slowed Redwine down. He’s still working as if it’s South Dade week for the Killian Cougars.

“I’ve been doing two-a-days with my teammates,” says Redwine, the physical corner who also possesses the quickness of the feet and hips to keep up with speedy receivers. “We go to a gym, we get worked out by a trainer. Then we go [back home], eat and do field workouts. Then after that we’ll do lighter drills.”

From the K to the U

FROM THE K TO THE U: Sheldrick Redwine and Jaquan Johnson on Signing Day. DAVID FURONES

With high school teammate Jaquan Johnson already at UM since the spring, Redwine says he’s also been in contact with another pair of Dade County defensive backs – senior Deon Bush (Columbus) and junior Artie Burns (Northwestern).

“They’re just telling me how it is and what to expect from the DBs. Just to come in confident,” Redwine says. “[Johnson] says he likes it, he’s coming along. He’s learning the playbook and the game speed is starting to slow down for him.”

Redwine is coming in with the mindset that he wants to take his time learning during the summer but then seriously compete for playing time in the fall.

With UM’s deep, talented and experienced secondary, however, a redshirt could be a possibility.

Redwine says if that happens “I’ll just take it in stride, just practice hard every day, try to get better and earn my spot.”

Redwine was a Louisville commit very late in the recruiting process before announcing he was headed to Coral Gables instead with a Signing Day hat trick.

 

He let Louisville know what his move would be the day before.

“They were cool with it,” Redwine says of Louisville’s response.

Cane coaches’ reaction?

“They reacted great. They said they couldn’t wait. They were happy they could get me to flip.”

The dynamic Redwine finished his senior season with five interceptions — two returned for touchdowns — three forced fumbles, 33 tackles and four blocked kicks.

South Carolina tops Kenneth Ruff’s list

Dillard senior linebacker Kenneth Ruff’s recruitment is starting to heat up in the spring.

The 240-pound three-star 2016 middle linebacker, who is versatile in the Panthers’ defense also playing outside linebacker and defensive end,  has recently added offers from Virginia, South Carolina, Florida State and Oregon State.

He lists South Carolina as his leader right now and looks to take five visits over the summer. The Gamecocks will certainly get one of them, but he is yet to schedule a date for it.

“We run the same defense as South Carolina, so it would be a smooth transition going into the next level,” says Ruff, who has been recruited by linebackers coach Kirk Botkin.

 

Both Dillard and South Carolina run a 4-3 defense and USC wants to use Ruff, who already has the frame of a college linebacker, in the middle.

Ruff wants to make his commitment in August and then stick to it so that his recruitment doesn’t become a distraction during his senior season.

“I feel like whatever school you commit to, you should be solid to that commitment. There’s no reason to commit and then decommit, so I will be solid to whoever I commit to,” Ruff says. “It’s all hype. That’s like lying pretty much.”

On the inevitable recruiting from other schools after he commits, Ruff says, “I’ll listen, but I’ll still be solid to whatever school I choose.”

After South Carolina, Ruff lists Florida State, Alabama, Florida and Mississippi State -- in that order. Of those schools, FSU is the only one to offer, but he’s received significant interest from the others.

Miami has also shown interest. Ruff says academics are important to him in college, and that has been one of FSU’s primary pitches to him.

Ruff says goals he has going into his senior season are to reach 115 tackles in the season, reach states and one-up his interception total of two last year to record three.

Archbishop McCarthy boys' volleyball reaches state final

BY WALTER VILLA
 
A tired but determined Archbishop McCarthy boys’ volleyball team defeated Orlando’s Timber Creek, 3-1, on Saturday, advancing to the 2015 state championship game.
 
The Mavericks (20-8), who defeated fellow Broward power Monarch late Friday night – the match ended at 10:50 p.m. – was back at Pine Crest at 9 a.m. on Saturday to prepare for a noon contest against Orlando’s Timber Creek (23-5).
 
“I got just six hours of sleep, maybe less,” said McCarthy outside hitter Michael Moreiras, who had 15 digs and 11 kills – both team highs – in the Mavericks’ 3-1 win over Monarch. “I was playing that whole (Timber Creek) match really tired. I just had to push through it.”
 
Tired or no, the Mavericks beat Timber Creek, 25-20, 25-22, 23-25, 25-23.
 
The match ended at 2 p.m., and – rather than a post-game speech – McCarthy Coach Karen Frank had just one word for her team:
 
“Eat,” she urged her players. “Eat!”
 
The McCarthy players were set to return to the court at 4 p.m. to play Orlando’s Bishop Moore (22-5) for the title.
 
McCarthy has never won a state championship in boys’ volleyball, although the Mavericks did make the 2011 final, losing to Seminole Ridge in five sets.
 
Bishop Moore has had a less hectic schedule at state as compared to McCarthy. Bishop Moore played its quarterfinal match at 4 p.m.on Friday and its semifinal at 10 a.m. Saturday. It will be more rested than McCarthy in the final.
 
“Nothing that quick and nothing this serious,” Moreiras said when asked if he had played on such short rest before, especially in a game where the stakes are as big as a state final. “We have to push through this.”

State volleyball - Palmetto falls against Bishop Moore

BY WALTER VILLA
 
Palmetto, perhaps South Florida’s best chance at ending the region’s championship drought in boys’ volleyball, was the first team bounced from the eight-team state tournament.
 
Bishop Moore, which won state titles in 2010 and 2012, swept the Panthers 25-13, 25-17, 25-11, on Friday afternoon at Pine Crest.
 
South Florida hasn’t had a champion since Southwest in 2008.
 
Palmetto (20-8), which beat Bishop Moore 25-15, 25-22 during the regular season, had no answer for the Hornets (21-5) on Friday
 
“Our team sort of fell apart – we weren’t working as a family,” said Palmetto star Devin Decker, a 6-6 senior outside hitter and four-year starter. “Our team was sort of overconfident. We weren’t ready to play.
 
“Bishop Moore is a state-contested team, and none of us had played in games like this. Bishop Moore was prepared to beat us.”
 
Palmetto Coach Chris Kallinosis said his team was off its game – the reverse of what happened when the teams met in the regular season.
 
“It’s tough to have a game plan when we are making so many bad contacts on the ball,” he said. “Bishop Moore is a good team. They took us out of system with their serves in the beginning. They made it tough for our guys. We got a little rattled.”

State boys' volleyball preview

BY WALTER VILLA

The boys’ volleyball state championship, which will be played out Friday and Saturday at Fort Lauderdale’s Pine Crest High School, features eight teams – six of them from South Florida – and no clear favorite.

Tampa’s Berkeley Prep beat Longwood Lyman for the 2014 title, but both of those schools failed to make it back to state. Also missing is Orlando’s Dr. Phillips, which was 25-0 before getting upset in the district playoffs.

Of the eight teams that will be at Pine Crest this weekend, only

two - Timber Creek (2009) and Bishop Moore (2010, 2012) - have won state titles. Both of those schools are from Orlando.

“It’s up for grabs,” Palmetto Coach Chris Kallinosis said of the tournament. “Usually there’s a strong favorite or two. But I think there are at least five teams who have a legitimate shot.”

Palmetto (19-7) got perhaps a tough draw by having to face Bishop Moore (20-5) in Friday’s quarterfinals. Bishop Moore swept Berkeley Prep to get here. But a further look reveals that Palmetto beat Bishop Moore 25-15, 25-22 during the regular season. Bishop Moore also lost to Wellington, a team Palmetto beat.

In addition, Palmetto has 6-6 senior outside hitter Devin Decker, a player Kallinosis considers to be the best in the county.

“He’s been starting for us all four years,” the coach said.”He’s a force at the net. He’s our captain and a big reason why we are at state.”

Wellington (18-8) takes on Mourning (24-6) in the other part of Palmetto’s side of the bracket. Mourning beat Wellington 2-1 earlier this season.

Mourning has won eight matches in a row. During that streak, the Sharks beat Southwest and Palmetto, avenging earlier losses to those teams. They also beat Berkeley Prep.

But the Sharks, who lost to Bishop Moore in the 2013 state quarterfinals and Lyman in last year’s state semifinals, were 0-3 against Orlando teams this season, losing to Dr. Phillips, Bishop Moore and Apopka.

The other half of the bracket features Monarch (21-2) against Archbishop McCarthy (18-8) and Timber Creek (22-4) vs. Columbus (24-2).

Monarch is the surprise team of the tournament. The Knights went 2-13 in 2012 and 3-13 in 2013 before posting a winning record last year.

This year, they won a district title for the first time in program history, but they have yet to play a team outside of South Florida.

They lost in straight sets to Wellington in their only matchup against a team currently at state.

McCarthy is back at state for the first time since 2012. From 2009 to 2012, the Mavericks lost to the eventual state champion four years in a row: Timber Creek, Bishop Moore, Seminole Ridge and Bishop Moore.

In terms of common opponents with Monarch, McCarthy has the edge having beaten Wellington 3-1.

Columbus, which reached the state semifinals in 2012, may have the toughest challenge of all the local teams in its matchup with Timber Creek, which is led by 6-5 junior Michael MacGillivray, a Division I prospect according to his coach.

McCarthy Coach Karen Frank, who has seen every team at state play this season, believes it will be a “close” tournament.

“At the beginning of the year, everyone was talking that it would be a Lyman-Dr. Phillips final, and neither of those teams are here,” she said. “I think all eight teams have the ability to advance to the final.”
