Top 60 Countdown: No. 35, WR Tommy Streeter

We'll move back to the 30s in our countdown of the Top 60 players at The U. Although No. 35 on our list still hasn't played in his first game as a Cane, expect redshirt freshman receiver Tommy Streeter to start doing some special things when he does.

Tommy Streeter > What we heard about him on Signing Day '08: Streeter didn't get as much love as Miami Northwestern High teammate Aldarius Johnson for most of his high school career. But he never let it bother him. In the Bulls' biggest game of the season -- a nationally televised game against Southlake Carroll in Texas -- Streeter showed the country what his 6-5, 202-pound frame and long, speedy strides could do. He caught three touchdowns --including a 75-yarder -- and finished his senior year with 36 catches for 676 yards and 11 touchdowns. That followed a junior season in which he caught 57 passes for 804 yards and 14 touchdowns. The PrepStar All-American was ranked 88th overall regardless of position by Rivals and 153rd by Scout.com. He chose Miami over Oregon, USF, South Carolina and Boston College.

> What he's done as a Cane: Streeter didn't get to play last season after suffering a wrist injury. But in the spring, he made his presence felt. He ran the fourth fastest 40-time in the spring (4.40) behind Sam Shields (4.20), Brandon McGee (4.23) and Graig Cooper (4.37) and hauled in a countless amount of long passes for touchdowns during practice.

> What Eye On The U expects from him in '09: Streeter obviously needs to put on some more weight down the road. But he has the size, speed and long arms to be very, very special. In addition to his talents, he also has the advantage of having already built several seasons worth of chemistry with starting quarterback Jacory Harris. That's something guys like Leonard Hankerson and LaRon Byrd don't have yet. While I don't expect Streeter to put up silly numbers at a position so loaded with talent, we should still expect him to find his way on the field and underneath a few of Harris' long bombs this season. Canes fans just ought to be ready to take the cue from Northwestern fansm who used to shout "wooooooooooooooooosh!" each time Harris and Streeter hooked up on big plays.

Streeter was the guy I wa smost looking forward to out of the 08 receievers. He's gonna be a good one.

With Shannon making the statement of cutting thr reievers playing depth there is now one Streeter is left of. It's not everybody that a 6-5 player with 4.4 speed is out there.

I want to see the tandem of Johnson,Byrd,Benjammin, Streeter and Johnson. These five have the swagger and talents of the old Miami recievers and the ability to score from anywhere.

Manny with all the concern about the lack of depth at tight end, the old question arises again- Should Tommy move to tight end? With his speed and catching ability he would present mismatches for linebackers trying to cover him. He should be put able to put on weight over the next four years. Even if he stays at wide receiver, do you see him being placed at the line to try to create the mismatches with the linebackers at times?
Streeter appears to be a long-ball threat for opposing teams. Do you see Tommy be called in when there is a need for a 3, 4 or 5 receiver set?

Knockin' 'em out today, Manny. Good work.

Youngnfocused, youre right!.....And if so, Randy will unltimately play six recievers,because Thompkins 83 is just too dynamic to keep off the field and youll see what Im talking abour first game of season. This kids intangibles is off the charts, the whole crew is,dont count any of em out!..

What about Collier??? He's a natural slot receiver and he was a strong contributor last season. Benjamin is fast, but he's not as polished as the rest of the group.

Streeter really has the potential to be our best receiver. He's got size, hands, swagger, and chemistry with Harris. I can't wait to see what he can do at this level.

Miami is loaded at this position!!! I hope the guys who don't play as much realize what a good situation they are part of. I don't think any of them will stay their full four years, so if you wait your turn you will reap the rewards down the road. The system will continue to produce WRs for a great opportunity as a number one pick in NFL for years to come, which is great for the "U".

I don't know if ya'll know it or not, but Tommy Streeter is a special kind of player. He has what I call "stick em" hands and can catch a ball from anywhere, including the sky. No exaggeration. He is just that good with sure hands and a heart to match. Once he adds just a little more weight on him, not real heavy, he is going to be another Jerry Rice. Promise. Go Canes!!!!!!!

With the talent at depth at wide receiver it going to make this camp real fun. With each player wanting to cement their spot in the rotation. Each of them want to be that guy, really should bring the best of every receiver.

Regardless Tommy Streeter will have impact this season, he is too tall and gifted to ride the bench when he is healthy. I want to see how Wipple is going to use them.

I Just cant wait till Hurricanes footbal season. We are going to be SO SICK. We are More away. AHHHHHHH..

dem boyz too raw...ill hav to say leonard and davon are in trouble. collier is good too u seen wat he did wit dem wr screens!!!

Georgia RB Mack Brown Commits To Gators

GAINESVILLE -- The University of Florida football team received its 16th public commitment on Friday shortly after the Gators' Friday Night Lights football camp, according to Rivals.com.

Georgia running back Mack Brown (5-11, 185 pounds) committed to UF coach Urban Meyer on Friday night. Brown, who plays at Lithonia (Ga.) Martin Luther King High, was one of Meyer's top targets for the class of 2010. Brown is listed by Rivals.com as one of the top 100 recruits in the country.

Brown chose Florida over Georgia, which has already received commitments from some of Brown's closests friends. Brown said facing his friends "is going to be pretty hard" but added that he "had to follow his heart."

Whattaya think Art ? More Cane Honks show up for this pathetic excuse of a picnic than there were actual top recruits that showed their skills for Urban last night @ The Swamp for Friday Night Lights ???

Gators just picked up their 25th arrest over the last 3 years. Nice job. You lead the nation in yet another category.

the next High C... for all that don't know horance copeland.

I love me my Canes so it hurts me to say this but based on the spring game, I don't see Streeter doing anything for this team. I watched him every time he was on the field and if he wasn't directly involved in the play, he disappeared. No blocking, no faking, no nothing. I hope Michael Irvin, Santana Moss and Andre Johnson saw it too because they'll be all over his ass and prove me wrong.

I agree with Worried Huricane... with all the talent at the WR position can not at least one of these men move to the TE position. At 6-5 Streeter would be just the right size except in blocking situations with a run around the end. I guess thats why im not the HC. However I still believe in the school and the coaches and have to believe that they still have something up their sleves and play books. We still have 2 months to find out. Something tells me this year is going to be special.Those fools out there that perject us to be 0-4 at the start ae way off base. I think this team will be a least 2-2 at the worse. 3-1 is realistic... 4-0 is a possibility if we catch teams that underestimate this teams potential.PLAYERS REMEMBER: Play every down completly, run your route's. sell yourself and sell the program. Play hard till the final second and maybe just maybe 4-0 could be a realistic goal.... Shoot for the moon... anything else would just be waisting your time.

what happened to prince kent and did frank gore's cousin secretly commit to maimi?
