Brandon McGee picks Canes (updated)

I wasn't out at Greentree Practice field this morning. I was at Plantation High where the University of Miami won the sweepstakes for one of the Top 10 cornerbacks in the country, Colonels captain Brandon McGee.

Consider it the biggest victory for the Canes since they landed running back Bryce Brown. McGee is Dscf1820Broward's No. 2 recruit, behind Miramar quarterback Eugene Smith. He told a crowd of about 50 people moments ago he wants to be a Cane. I was busy filming it all for our website and will have an interview with Brandon I'll post later today.

> I finally got a chance to finish editing that video of McGee tonight. It's now available on our video player on our UM page. Also available is about a six minute audio interview with McGee on our high school podcast, The Countdown. If you just want to listen to McGee, skip ahead to about 15 and a half minutes ahead (60-65 percent into it). In our live podcast, we also spoke to Charles Fishbein of Elite Scouting Services who gave us his thoughts on the announcement.

> One thing I came away with from spending the morning at Plantation was how good a kid McGee seemed to be. He's very polite, well-mannered and someone who really loves his family. He told us that camraderie was the reason he chose the Canes and said he really did drop the Canes at one point before his father convinced him to put them back in the running. McGee told us it was very important to play in front of his grandparents. He got teary eyed when talking about his mother, who passed when he was 13. Either way, Miami seems to be getting not only a great player, but a tremendous young man.

Here is the only clip I was able to find of him on YouTube.

P.S. - If you are a high school football fan, you've got a treat coming. Over the next two weeks on our podcast, I'll take a look at every team and every district in South Florida with High School writers Andre C. Fernandez and Bob Emanuel and recruiting writer Larry Blustein. For the complete schedule, check out the high school blog.

This is so funny. All these scum bag gators are really upset about Mcgee being a CANE.

Urban Meyer has been lucky. He will be exposed this year, and he'll be gone within two years, while Randy will build a dynasty!

Eat manure gators, your days are numbered!

"Teebow? ha what a joke what has he proved?
Harvin? another joke he so slow?"

CANE ROCKET SCIENTIST HARD AT WORK

TRUTH HURTS

This is how you beat UF. I would love to see UM do this after every touch down

SAME TROPHY GATORS HOISTED LAST YEAR FOR COMING IN 3rd PLACE IN THE SEC

harvin da man has been on here for over 4 hours straight. DO YOU HAVE A GNIKCUF life dude? you really should try moving out of you moms basement and try living on your own.

Comparing UF's SEC finish from last year to UM's projected 3rd place finish this year is like comparing the XFL to the NFL. Miami would get crushed WORSE if they played in the toughest conference in football known as the SEC. The ACC is ranked by many at the bottom of the pond and you guys still suck. Butch said it all when he said that UM typically played for one game and the rest was a cakewalk. Florida might lose to UGA this year, but UGA is picked to win the NC by many.
You'll get schooled by Wake Forest. Laughable.

Take that pansy schedule you play in that pansy conference and ram it inflatable helmet wearing homer.

Thugs.......Taurean Charles?????


Don't hit girls Taurean

How is Jamar Hornsby doing?

Jamar Hornsby used a dead chicks credit card.....realllly cool.

Taureen Charles threw a half empty/full keg at a young adult at a party

Taureen sounds like the type of "man" I would want to invite to a party. What a pud!!

Canesrule, Lame Cane, HarvinDaMan, and whoever else you want to go by,

I guess you are right. We are thugs, and you guys are saints. That is why Teabag is volunteering to circumcise young Phillipino boys. He probably volunteered to do the community service of all of the other gay-tor convicts arrested this summer. Even after he has done their community service, he probably will look for more weiners. Maybe he can go to China. There are alot of uncircumcized weiners there.

I seriously dont understand how a fan of a 4 loss team last year is talking so much crap? The gaytors? Really? It must have been the Natl Championship in 07, wow 2, good job guys. Your almost to 5.

Now how come the gaytors stopped scheduling us after being beaten numerous times in a row? At least FSU never stopped scheduling their rival because they were downright scared.

When you look at the facts, UF will more than likely never accomplish what Miami has. They need 3 more rings to tie, and I cant even count how many more 1st rd picks they need, throw in the NCAA home game winning streak, the overall Miami vs UF record, etc

And dont even bother with the 'weak' Big East bullsh*t because you tend to play a team from another conference in the Natl Championship and yea they still got tore up, so you cant use that one.

GREAT POST CANE FAN, WELL THOUGHT OUT

Good luck in that pansy conference with that pansy schedule.

And good luck with marble mouth coach who will be surfing Jobs.com much sooner than you will ever admit

And good luck with those very average receivers taking passes from a guy who has NO experience. 08 aint be great caner.

And good luck JAMMING 30k into the cavernous fish warehouse. So what if they play superbowls there, thats because of weather and money you fools. WEATHER AND MONEY. That place is a horrible place to watch football. It's great for nipples and fireworks but terrible for actually viewing football. Unless of course you're watching Wake Forest torch you in HD.

And good luck with that paper thin D-line. ONE DEEP

And good luck with that new defensive scheme that will take a minimum of 4 games to figure out.

And good luck with all those recruits that didn't qualify. Is there anything worse than overrecruiting? See: Nick Saban.

And good luck with those porcelain backs that you have. It'll be a miracle if those guys stay healthy. They're a mere notch above average anyway. NO ONE will ever compare JJ to Edge. NO ONE.

You guys have more problems than you can count but ITS ALL ABOUT DUHU BABY.

you know what I really find funny? The fact that you never answer 3's comments or questions and just ignore them. That guy shuts you up every single time.

I LAUGH AT YOU MONUMENTAL SCUMBAGS . I'LL LAUGH HARDER WHEN WE CRUSH YOU . YOU WILL GET CRUSHED. YOUR TEAM SUCKS.

STILL LAUGHING

CANES SUUUUUUUUCK

ACC DOORMAT

shove your pop quiz where the sun don't shine Alex Trebek.

CANES SUCK

BWAHAHAAAHAAA

LAME-O

WHO ARE YOU RECIEVERS? THEY ARE ALL GREEN BESIDE HARVIN

Is this guy serious? Cmon from a Harvin fan? lmao oh man.

Well see about our 'porcelain' backs on Sept 6th. You wont see a better RB tandem all year.

GREAT ANALYSIS

And good luck with that paper thin D-line. ONE DEEP

GOOD LUCK WITH WR PLAYING SAFETY

And good luck with that new defensive scheme that will take a minimum of 4 games to figure out.

GOOD LUCK STOPPING A PASS

And good luck with those porcelain backs that you have. It'll be a miracle if those guys stay healthy. They're a mere notch above average anyway. NO ONE will ever compare JJ to Edge. NO ONE.

DO YOU EVEN HAVE A RB?

Five players this preseason have suffered anterior-cruciate ligament (ACL) tears and the two newest casualties are freshman linebacker Brendan Beal and redshirt sophomore offensive lineman Jim Barrie. Neither was expected to start but it's still an alarming number of knee injuries at this point in the season. Read what coach Urban Meyer said after Tuesday's practice


GOOD LUCK WITH DEPTH!

I am still curious if Jamar Hornsby will be in gator orange or in county orange? Stealing a credit card from a dead buddies gal..........priceless. Timmy needs to bless him and show him the correct way to live.

ESPN..7 starting Florida Gators, have come down with chronic crotch rot....more news to follow.

UM will be better than it has been. However, whether they can get back to their glory days of the 90's remains to be seen. Whether Shannon is going to be a good head coach also remains to be seen. He hasn't shown much especially on the offensive side of the ball. Not the most eloquent speaker to say the least. Gotta give the gators credit and yes they will be very good this year. They have sick talent. The Vegas Spread will be twenty something points.

Oh lamecane. How did you like that Mcgee commitment ?

Tough to swallow, eh loser ?

Don't you guys know last years records are the past. Who wins a game depends on individual matchups. Miami will run on Florida and throw deep. On defense TB will be sacked 4 times and throw 3 picks. The last game Gators played was against another UM (Michigan), this years game against THE UM will destroy Gators season. Miami 27 UF 23

GO CANES!!!
