Canes land another commitment from Al Golden's camp: Coral Reef CB Vernon Davis

Coral Reef cornerback Vernon Davis went to Al Golden's football camp Saturday hoping to impress Hurricanes coaches. He earned MVP honors and a scholarship offer.

Vernon Davis Sunday morning, he went back to UM with his mother so she could check it out. "She loved it," Davis said. 

So Davis told Golden Sunday to save him a scholarship for the 2012 signing class, making the 5-10, 170-pound junior UM's 14th non-binding oral commitment -- and the fourth to high school player to pledge to UM after attending Golden's camp.

"Having that experience at the camp and making that connection to Coach Golden, Coach Paul Williams was what did it for me," Davis said. "Once my mom was able to see it too, it locked it up for me. She saw everybody has my back. That's all you want."

Davis chose UM over offers from 15 other schools. Among them: West Virginia, Cincinnati, Duke, FIU, Ball State and Boston College.

Davis said he has a 2.7 GPA and scored a 17 on his ACT. He said he's qualified to get into UM.

There have been something like 5 new reccruits commiting to the U since this lame article appeared on vernon Davis. 2 more committed today.

This is a lame blog!

Take Manny Navarro's face off this- he's too busy counting the number of losses the Marlins have!

yaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwnnnnn... Another GATOR WIN .

U can have the rest of the week off Canesfool...

Try again Friday.

Pig, we know you aren't in Omaha. Your lard ass combined with a Costco salary couldn't afford to pay for two airplane tickets.

So you just sit home, slob that you are, watching tv till the midnight shift comes on.

I sit here laughing at what a loser you are.

I guess I win again, Porker of the processor.

IT'S GREAT TO BE A FLORIDA GATOR !!!

Serious question for Cane fans … When was the last time a Hurricane team, in any sport, had an exceptional season that ended in a Championship ?

Simple question … Now get in Ur Way Back machine and get back to me some day.

days on this topic the herald is lame. The WORST UM sports blog in the netire world. I bet the Columbus Dispatch has more on Miami Football than this joke of a paper

It's because U are NO NEWS U ...

When U finally get just ONE 4 Star kid that was actually recruited by some good schools, and he gives U a NON-BINDING commitment in June that's 50/50 to become reality in Feb. ... And that's ALL U have to pop off and chime about, U then know that Ur Overall Athletic Program has fallen to such depths of despair that Ur looking up to RELEVANCY ...

When's the last time any U team was able to raise their index fingers as Champs again ?

LOL Traylor boy.

You bit on my hook.

So, lets say the rednecks from Gaineville win the CWS (distinct possibility)

that gives you 6 NCs.

Miami, that little school, with 35,000 less students, millions less alumni, millions less money, still has 9.

You and your brethren always say we live in the past.

Your 2008 NC is in the past. And will continue to be so, thanks to fat boy weiss, and I-was fired from Texas after a 5-7 season- Muschump.

And Timmy the Moyle decides to come to the gables and in-your-face cane fans with his book signing... What did he have to say? Other than... Brandon spikes gave me a reach around in the game against LSU?

Tebow- You are no QB. you are a full back. You are the 3rd string QB at sorry a-- Denver. Because you s--k- and only the as- kissing party by the NFl and ESPN got you into the NFL.
because plenty - acoach said you werent good enough but were too pc to speak the truth. Only your boyfriend Josh Daniels gave you a shot..
My prediction- The gators wil play in the finals of the CWS... and choke... just like the softball team choked the big shwazoo!

I went to college in Miami.

Trolls went to college in Gainesville, or else they're from north Florida.

Win.

No, he's not a punching bag. He's a conversationalist who engages with countless like-minded UM fans to debate which fanbase more realistically has a kak in dey moufs.

You are all the worst, shame on you for being so absurd.

This system will work. I have been to many closed practices over the last 4 years with a family member in the program, and this staff is coaching, watching, TEACHING and in the face of every player start to finish. That is what is happening with these camps, they are evaluating the old fashioned way...........with their own eyes. No stars, no film, no hype. It's easy to go to championship NWestern and coo their 5 best players, thats the easy way, and it doesen't work. No disrespect mean't. These camps are bringing the talent to the U, and the coaches are using their skills to evaluate it.

Jelani and D'mauri,

Welcome to you and your families to the Canes family! We are happy to have you. It's going to be real good!

Manny and Susan - Will you please update the articles on your pages. They have been here for 5 weeks or more. Especially the article about Storm Johnson. NO one wants to hear about that anymore! It is ancient history!

It is crazy most of you were upset because last year and the years before we only had like 2 or 3 verbals. Golden is trying to lock down South Florida!

Out of 17 verbals 7 are 4stars 6 are from South Florida!

out of 17 total verbals 13 are South Florida kids!

We have a ton of 3stars that have the ability to be 4 or 5stars by the end of the season.

Why dont you guys wait until the season is over and done before you start to go for the jugler?

From what i see Golden is doin a heck of a job down south.

We have 3 WR, 3 QB, 1RB, 1OL, 2LB, 3DB, 4DE

There is still alot of recruiting left to do and i think the canes will be just fine.

I live in Phoenix now but I am from Richmond Heights and why is the stadium so empty if all of so-called fans are die hard canes. Before you all say anything go buy a ticket for at least 1 game cuz i would kill to watch The U play live and in color.

Manny!!!!! Let's go!!!!! Lets get some new articles in here already!!!! More commits have come in already and there is nothing in here about them... Get on the ball man lets go.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Not a thing has changed since Capt. ClUeless took over 5 years ago... Ur pumped because U have a TON of 3 Star Average kids wif ability ?

Hook ... Line ... Sinker

U Wash...
U Rinse...
U Repeat... Ova n Ova n Ova n Ova n Ova again...

.

"Out of 17 verbals 7 are 4stars 6 are from South Florida!

We have a ton of 3 stars ! ..."

.

WOW !!! ??? ... Silly Cane Fan ...

I'll go slllllooowwwwlllyy for U my Hilarious Heights Hoot Owl Worshiper ...

The reason as to why Al is "loading" up on all these 2-3 star locals (by Ur math, that would be 10, TEN out of the 17 commits) is because ALL the Nations TOP 4-5 Star talent has told Ur Golden Fool and Ur Average U, "NO THANKS... NOT INTERESTED... Goodbye. If he didn't pass out these schollies like fliers at a flea market right now, other schools like the Cincy’s, Marshall’s, Virginia’s, Duke’s, S. Fla’s, B.C.’s, UCF’s and FIU’s of the average college football world, that U compete head to head with, will rape Ur 2-3 star Fools Gold S. Fla. chUmp talent pool.... U Get it ? ... Thought naught... NO OTHER TOP PROGRAMS OFFERED Ur Commits accept but maybe 3-4 of ur mundane unimpressive 2012 so far "haUl" U Foolish Cane Fans...

Now back to Ur smitten with overjoyment misguided adulation that U got 7 whole 4 Star commits (with 5 being in the bottom of ESPN's Top 150)... Not that U'll get it, but outta 17 commits, with the other 10 being unranked to average 2-3 star kids, and none being near the Top ESPN 300 players... U go right on clicking Ur heels, repeating, there's no place like Duh U ... Yes, U are ranked in the Top 10 "now" based solely on quantity, not quality at all. When the others Top teams round out their classes with the rest of the 60 or so Top 120 players that have yet to commit, U will fall like the ol O.B. in the rankings... And would U like to know why my dUmbasse Cane Clods ? OK, I'll tell U... Out of those 60 or 70 undeclared kids, U are listed as a consideration with maybe 5-6 of them ( of which U'll be lucky to get 1 or 2), where as FLORIDA, FSU and the other TOP 5 Relevant Stable College Programs are all amongst 30-35 under consideration and they'll each get 8-10 of them... Mark it down...

That's the difference between U and the BEST ... U continUe, year after year to settle for mediocrity, where as the BEST will settle for nothing less than the Very Elite...

It's what Shalalala serves U , and U axe for more...

.


"Out of 17 verbals 7 are 4stars 6 are from South Florida!

out of 17 total verbals 13 are South Florida kids!

We have a ton of 3 stars ... "

.

Well whoop de fU@king do fer U ...

Texas ... 16 out of 17 4 STARS... 1 5 STAR

FSU .... 8 out of 13 4 STARS... 1 5 STAR

Alabama ... 8 out of 14 4 Stars ... 1 5 STAR

FLORIDA ... 9 out of 12 4 STARS

U ............. 7 out of 17 4 Stars (maybe 1 or 2 more) with 8 3 Stars... 2 "other" NO stars and more to come...

.

Do U really think come Jan.- Feb that U'll be able to compete with the likes of Auburn, LSU, OSU, Michigan, Oklahoma, Oregon, Stanford, Georgia and the above mentioned when it comes Closing time for the BEST of the REST 4-5 Star kids ?

But in Ur delUsional ways, U'll hold out false hope that U will be able to sign more 4-5 Stars (which ain't happening) and ALL those 2-3 non Stars will "develope under Goldie like they did under Capt. ClUeless...

Lemme guess... There's atleast Twenty or so, Ray Lewis', Sean Taylor's, Santana Moss', Michael Irvin's, Bryant Mc Kinnie's, Ed Reed's, Ken Dorsey's, Jerome Brown's, Russell Maryland's, Willis McGahee's and George Mira's on this squad right now just waiting to be developed by the next Jimmy Johnson in Al Golden right ? ... I thoUght so...

Silly, silly Cane fan ... Keep doing what U do best... Dream on and ignore the figure in the black rope holding large scythe ...


.

.

Finally, to those non Kool-Aide drinking respectable Miami Hurricane Fans that understand the crossroad that this program is at and can actually see it for what it is and has become... I apologise for the harshness of these facts. I think we coUld all agree that having The Mighty Miami Hurricane Machine Back Up near the Top of College Football will benefit ALL... I would be much more impressed with what Al Golden is doing if I knew for a fact that he and his Temple/Penn State staff would be here to see it throUgh for 10 years... But we all know that ain't happening, right ? Those guys will turn tail and bolt out of C.G. in a Yankee second, NOT IF, but WHEN HAPPY VALLY comes a calling ... And that call WILL come sooner rather than later... U know this.... So do potential TOP Recruits.

And It will be right back to where U were before and after Randy Shannon ... With Donna leading the way...


.

De Ja VU U huh Arty ?


.

This Blog Is Ova ...


Hahahahaha what a f*cking f*ggot!!!! ^

How big of a loser do you have to be to look up all those stats and write out a dissertation about a team that you don't even follow on a week old blog that nobody's going to read??

Doesn't matter how much time you spend researching Miami Hurricanes football, none of the stats you come up with changes the fact that you have no life and are here, doing this.

Yo Manny! Where are the new articles? C'mon man, don't slip on us. I actually like your article's (sorry susan you don't measure up). A few more recruits are already on board and there's nothing on them. C'mon man!!

get back in August Arthur ...

LAmest blog on earth. UM has 17 commits, 6 4-stars and still going on for 9 days now and counting. Who is the sports editor of this hack newspaper?

Instaed they talk about the bible boy's book signing at the Gables.

Newsflash to the Herald's editors: We don't give a s&t about Tim Teblow.

dammit where did my post go?

Anyways, I'm proud as hell over what Golden has done so far. I know I'm repeating myself but making an example out of storm johnson was the way to go. It's an attitude of, "I don't care who are you and what you have done, what are you gonna do?" Weakness and poor attitudes will not be tolerated. I love this mentality. Very similar to Howard and Jimmy.

LETS GET SOME!

They expect us to subscribe to this crap? I definitely won't be renewing this year. I pay but get no news. What a joke MH is. Buh-bye now.

Ur A Cane fan ... After watching Ur Football, Basketball, Baseball and overall ALL Sports teams ... U sUrely shoUld be Used to it by now after 10 years U 180 Miami Maggot...

No updates for 2 WEEKS, this paper is a fish wrapper.

TLuv,

Great quote by Jon Gruden!

Yes, to those who knocked Coach Golden and Temple's program, check out some film on the intensity these guys brought. That, talent and execution are what make winners!

See what he and his atff are already doing at the UM. We will see fire from the Canes that we haven't seen in years, folks.

It's gonna be so fine!

AND, ganja heads need not apply.

Hope this Alabama DT transfers to the U...

YAH!

It is amazing to see how people are still judging recruiting classes after the debacle we have seeing at the U of M the passed few years.

Look back at the recruiting classes that Shannon was able to put together and you will see top nationally rated guys at just about every position that later became a bunch of losers. Potential means nothing. Development does.

Totally on the money Roy.

The primadonnas from Miami NW were an example of kids coming here "assuming" that they were all that and thinking starting positions would be handed to them on name alone. That in fact did happen with Jacorry when Shannon was here. In fact, his "preferentiality" is what ran off 3 quarterbacks off and scared several others from even considering Miami- had they been treated like anyone else, like JJ, Schnellie, Butch or Dennis did, they would have been forced to bust they a55 and pay their dues like everyone else. This culture of preferences created divisiveness, elitism, entitlement and softness among the entire Hurricanes football program. No, it didnt start with the NW recruits. It started with Shannon. But once these "5 star bulls" arrived on campus, as part of the #1 recruiting class in the country in 2008, it was perpetuated.

Not with Golden.

This is a new era, which is really a return to the old cane mentality of us against the world. You hate us? eff U. we hate you too. See youon the field mu-tha fu--ka.

11 days onthis blog. How lame

Not with Golden.

A new era huh ? That's what U said when Capt. ClUeless took ova. How'd that work out ?

And now Golden will get Ur mentality "back" ?
Back to what? What mentality can Penn. State Goldie instill that will bring U back to the 80's ? White linen jackets and white loafers on road trips ?

Other than one season over the last 20 years, just what are U trying to bring back too ?

U against the world huh ? Hey pal, U no longer recruit bad azzz thUgh criminal winning football players ... Ur an academic choir boy school now with gUtless quiting players and Donna has U by the balls...

Those days are gone . Just when will U come to grips with that ?


Does the blog Pig realize Canes and Gatards had the same record? Or does a high school dweeb playing out his fantasy not realize this.

What about 8-5 with underclassmen and 7-6 with upperclassmen do U not comprehend ?

First, we need a new article. This is ridiculous to hear about a recruit that committed nearly 2 weeks ago.

Now onto something more important and that is player development compared to star ratings coming out of High School. Some kids never grow up but their high school coach tolerates their attitude and behavior in the locker room because he believes they will eventually mature when they are in college but that doesn't always happen.

No matter how great a player is in high school does not mean that they will be great by the end of their college career. Being a great college legend depends on two things. First is how well you train then the second is how well you fit into the coaches system. If the coach does not know the identity of the offense and defense then the players will not develop.

If you are going to be a team that runs the ball first then the offensive line and receivers will be drafted by teams that run the ball a lot. As a coach it is in your best interest to focus on run blocking schemes. If you are a team that actually plays a pro-style offense then it's all about getting the ball out of the quarterbacks hands quickly unless you have one on one coverage with no help over the top. That's when you go deep.

However, the last years there were no quick slants or bubble screens or balls thrown to the tight ends. Not to mention we never tried to establish the run effectively last year besides the Pitt game.

On defense, we don't have an identity either. We don't set out to stop the run by calling run blitz.

Things will change under Golden. If it is our strength on paper then he is more organized to detail that we will find a way to run the ball first and to stop the run on defense.

A Cane Fan Says What ?

When you are done with your education at Gaysville and you receive your diploma take a $#!+ and wipe your ass with your diploma. That's all that it is good for.

Punks that Graduate from Florida are the reason why we have such a high unemployment rate and they are killing our economy because they never pay back their student loans but I would not blame them either. The money they borrowed for attending the University of Florida was a rip off. You are just as smart as you were when you graduated High School.

When you play football for the University of Miami you realize that there is no such thing as a dumb jock at The U. First you have to qualify and then the easiest degree is Sociology and you get to apply your degree in a metropolitan city. How different is that from majoring in farm science and applying your degree by going Cow Tipping at Gaysville.

As much as I hate to admit it, the SEC is going to take the 'ship in another sport.

Whats up Manny? This same stuff has been posted for weeks. He needs to get on campus!

Arty... Cane clUcks are on full tilt at the SEC's and TITLETOWN's pUre Dominance in all things Sports @ the College landscape level...

Gonna be a great Summer ...

Why is there no UM football news of any sort???? Something has to be worth reporting. COME ON MIAMI HERALD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Soldy, Burtdawg, $55,

I have comments for you three smegma lickers. Burtdawg, if you want to accuse people of being educated you may want to start with YOURSELF. You missed a comma after seedy, as well as a comma after uneducated. You didn't put a period after fan. The basic fundamentals of education are reading and writing. Burtdawg...epic fail.
Soldy, your grammar is fine, however your assumptions that UM fans really give two cents about baseball is laughable. Everybody, including you, knows that football is all that matters. UM 5 titles, Florida is our biatch in the rear view mirror.
$55, I am thinking no schools in the world have shares that are publicly traded so your comment is idiotic.
The UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU phuckers!!!!!

Seriously, why I ask, are their piece of s&$@ t gaytr fans on this blog, ever?

Why are you losers so caught up in this "sec" "sec" bs? Does that help you rationalize how pathetic uf is? Does cheering for the SEC wipe away your pathetic 8-5 season?

Sec this, ya pu55y.

You all claim you dominated the decade, but in 10 yrs UM outranked UF 4 yrs, UF 5, and none were rained in 2010". Domination? I think not

Domination is what we have on you: 9 vs 5 beeches

U will always be our beesznatxhes. Kneel before us.

U will travel to NY state to marry your male cousin

U will admit that Charlie Weiss ha Urban Meyer's kak in his a55

U will admit that Teblow has Urban Meyer's kak in his mouf

U will soon realize that despite being a 55,000 student "university", U are still Miami's beeotches . Just like I own you.

Kneel before us

The Pig has not responded. This is his sleep time. He has to get up at 11 PM to be at the Costco security detail by midnight. Guarding those deadly almonds is a tough job.

He will post his usual garbage "insert typical rhetorical question beginning with 'U' here" while dreaming of his boytoy.

Sick Pig.

If working as a Costco security guard, and encountering an intruder,

REMEMBER: In spite of your UF mass educational
"experience" and subsequent training, OINK does not constitute a sufficient warning!!!

Where are all the serious and astute Canes fans?
