What will Canes 2012 depth chart look like? Here's my best guess minus Lamar Miller

When the Hurricanes football season ended Nov. 25 it felt like we had a firm grasp as to who was coming back next season and who might be leaving early.

Will Lamar Miller stick around?The consensus feeling was running back Lamar Miller would probably go and there was a chance defensive end Olivier Vernon and safety Ray-Ray Armstrong could join him. Since then, none of those three have announced anything, but receiver Tommy Streeter -- who at one point said he was coming back -- and defensive tackle Marcus Forston, who missed two seasons worth of games with injuries, decided they were heading out the door.

Could other unexpected third and fourth-year juniors follow suit? Absolutely. Who will leave? I've got no leads. But the more I think about the situation with Forston, the more I believe Al Golden had no problem letting him out the door. Anyone who has battled injury or has sat on the bench for 2-3 years without making an impact will probably be encouraged to leave, freeing up precious scholarships the school needs to load up on this next signing class.

Although Golden said in his press conference he believed "the worst was behind us" in terms of what sanctions UM could be facing from the NCAA, I've heard on my travels throughout Miami-Dade and Broward high schools over the past two weeks Golden and his assistants have been telling recruits "scholarships are limited." Several local coaches have told me UM is anticipating losing scholarships and thus is doing its best to create room by encouraging some current players to walk. Again, just what I'm hearing from outside -- nothing concrete from UM.

That being said, UM's depth chart will look awfully young next year. That's an enticing sell for freshman who want to play right away, but not necessarily a good look for an improvement from 6-6. Here's is the projected depth chart at the moment, assuming Miller leaves (rated second best RB by NFLDraftScout.com) and everyone else returns:

OFFENSE
QB: Stephen Morris, Jr. | Ryan Williams, Jr.
RB: Mike James, Sr. | Eduardo Clements, Jr. | Darion Hall, R-So.
FB: Maurice Hagens, Jr. | John Calhoun, Sr.
WR: Allen Hurns, Jr. | Rashawn Scott, So.
WR: Phillip Dorsett, So. | Kendall Thompkins, Sr.
TE: Clive Walford, R-So. | Dyron Dye, R-Jr. | Asante Cleveland, Jr.
LT: Seantrel Henderson, Jr. | Jermaine Johnson, R-Jr.
LG: Brandon Washington, Sr. | Jeremy Lewis, Sr.
C: Shane McDermott, R-So. | Jared Wheeler, R-Jr.
RG: Brandon Linder, Jr. | Malcolm Bunche, R-So.
RT: Jonathan Feliciano, R-So. | Jermaine Barton, R-So.

DEFENSE
DE: Anthony Chickillo, So. | Shayon Green, R-Jr.
DT: Adewale Ojomo, Sr. | Jalen Grimble, So.
DT: Curtis Porter, Jr. | Darius Smith, Sr.
DE: Olivier Vernon, Sr. | Olsen Pierre, So.
WLB: Denzel Perryman, So. | C.J. Holton, Sr.
MLB: Kelvin Cain, Jr. | Gionni Paul, So.
SLB: James Gaines, Jr. | Eddie Johnson, So.
CB: Brandon McGee, Sr. | Dallas Crawford, So.
CB: Thomas Finnie, So. | Kacy Rodgers, Jr.
SS: Ray-Ray Armstrong, Sr. | Andrew Swasey, Sr.
FS: Vaughn Telemaque, Sr. | A.J. Highsmith, R-Jr.

SPECIAL TEAMS
K: Jake Wiecalw, Sr. | Matt Goudis, So.
P: Dalton Botts, Jr.
KR: Phillip Dorsett, So. | Davon Johnson, Sr.
PR: Phillip Dorsett, So. | Kendall Thompkins, Sr.

> Now, this depth chart didn't have a single incoming freshman included in it because obviously they haven't officially signed a National Letter of Intent. But if you look at the players UM has committed at the moment, it's obvious receivers Angelo Jean-Louis (Palm Beach Central) and Malcolm Lewis (Miramar High) and running back Duke Johnson (Miami Norland) all have an opportunity to come in and help right away on offense and special teams.

Defensively, there are huge glaring holes and needs in the secondary and at linebacker. The most college ready linebackers are considered Raphael Kirby (Stone Mountain, Ga.) and Reggie Northrup (Jacksonville First Coast). The true freshman corner that could make an impact is Coral Reef's Vernon Davis. Little known JUCO corner Ladarius Gunter -- a recent commitment -- could also play right away as well as any other junior college additions. 

So what do you think of this depth chart and the outlook for 2012? Discuss.

@ brab

Maybe you have been missing for a few years. Let me enlighten you. During the same course of time that she has been the director of the school, this douche Nevin was allowed to run rampant. She might have made the school look good academically but the program which is what carried the school for decades was allowed to go down the drain. She knew what was going on and didn't care as long as the kept coming. Then, the the chit hit the fan she had no one to throw the blame at since Kirby was smart enough to jump ship before everything hit. I hope that other comment you mentioned about not attending the school or the games was a joke. I have only missed 2 home games in 21yrs since I started buying season tickets. I personally didn't attend school there because I was given an academic scholarship to another school. And yes, she does have to cater to the public and the student body because without the public's $$$ or student enrollment, there would be no university. She's already losing $16mil this year alone with Jackson South and another $25mil next year. Those numbers will continue for a couple of more years also. Her time here has been tainted by her inability to use proper judgement. Keep your hand extended out long enough and eventually you'll get something that you don't want. Like dirty money from a dirty person. Who do you think introduced Nevin to Barry Alvarez at Wisconsin? Nevin took over a million from him and never looked back. Nevin followed her down to Miami. He was never on campus until she got here. Facts are facts, everything was fine until she got here. Your point on academics is good but you need to see the bigger picture. She has to go, this is a football town not an ivy league town. That will never happen here.

GO CANES!!!!!!!!!!!! "F" THIS BIT@H!!! SHE KNEW THE WHOLE TIME AND LET IT CONTINUE UNTIL IT BLEW UP IN HER FACE.

Anyone else see that VT got locked down again?? A police officer and another individual shot dead on campus.

And they say that The U has instability?

Go U!

VT = murders

Penn St. = rape/molestation of minors

The U = same garbage that happens everywhere else but the microscope only stays focused on us thanks to the amazing reporting from yahoo sports and espn's stellar news reporting. Mark Mayes is a bit@h. I wonder what he'll have to say about VT and Pedophile st in comparison to his opinion on The U?

This is for you Herbieibis - no I'm not blocked. I'm known to you and the regular posters. I'm just tired of that idiot telling people what to think. If you disagree with him in any meaningful way, you're gone. Look at all the decent people he's booted or who left voluntarily because of his disrespect and arrogance.

::::::::::::::::::::

Tom Thumb Popadak aka Skreetz aka Blog Drama Queen aka 86Cane throws a hissy fit and says he's shutting down canespace for good or until his period is over.

Dude has finally gone over the edge. He doesn't realize he's a laughingstock.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

And with those last few comments that is the official and final end of Canespace.

It has been fun. It has been real.

But at this point it is no longer real or fun. Good bye and good luck Canespacers!

Happy blogging...

Posted by: SOUP | December 04, 2011 at 10:34 PM

doesn't look too bad. looks like a team that can grow next season and do some serious damage in 2013

To put this plainly, the plan is to weather the storm (sanctions) and build from there. Everything I have read about Golden and his plan is to build, build, build. This class is basically what is going to be our best bet getting back to prominence.

I do wonder if any sanctions will include a tv ban....If so I can certainly foresee some road trips...

MANNY!! SUSAN!!!

Next time you talk to coach Golden can you ask if he's going to hire a new strength coach?

Seems Swasey is renowned for agility stuff but Golden wants his players stronger. Be nice if they could keep him and hire someone else to run the lifting.

Would love to see a secondary of TMac, Ray Ray, Finne, and Tracy Howard. Lb's.. Buchanon, Perryman, and Gaines.. And DL of Chick, Vernon, Porter, and Goldman!!

On O.. Qb-Morris , RB - duke/miller/James, TE- would love to see Cleveland step up, WR- Hurns/Scott/AJL - Dorsett/Thompkins/Lewis.. OL Henderson/Washington/McDermont/Linder/Bunche... That's my lineup

They no longer impose tv bans. The last one was Texas A & M in '95. Too much money in involved.

Would have no prob plugging Brown from Norland in there for Gaines! Stay home young man!!

Would be nice if golden went after Noah spence he is in his back yard

Lamar(east west) Miller is not needed or wanted as far as this team is concerned. RR Armstrong is a cancer that needs to be gone from the squad. Both of these clowns would be better off at Bethune Cookman and or the Canadian League. The further away and the quicker the better.

I've said this before, but 2012 will likely be a repeat of 2008. A team that is heavily weighted with freshmen and sophmores. That team was 7-3 going into Week 11.

With a more experienced QB (Morris or Williams) than Jacor Harris or Robert Marve was in 2008, this Canes team could be slightly better.

One question I have is if the NCAA has not finished its investigate by Thanksgiving 2012 and Miami is 7-5 or better, will the school decide to be precautious and self-impose a second consecutive bowl ban?

Looks like with all of the guys leaving early (all the best to them in their future endeavors), that this is what Coach Golden needs to entice guys to come to UM during these last stages of recruiting.

I Feel tremendously saddened by what happened at Virginia Tech today. Who cares about football or a rivalry when something like this happens. Any UM fan who tries to use this situation at VT to prop up our program needs to push away from their keyboard, take off their Gino Torretta jersey and think about the fact that 34 innocent people have been killed at this university in the past several years. Would UM be raked over the coals had this terrible tragedy had happened in Coral Gables? We know that they absolutely would have, but now does not seem like the appropriate time to gloat or compare the large differences between some kids getting free meals from a rogue booster in comparison to innocent lives being lost by murders.

Great to see that the Gator trolls do not have time to spew their garbage on UM boards, due their program seeming to fall apart day by day. The "genius" Charlie Weiss has left Gainesville after one year to become the head coach at Kansas. Due to this, Gator fans are crying in their grits as we speak. Due to the good year that UM's offense had last year and him being a former Gator, I know that those lizards will make a push at Coach Fisch. I see him doing great things with Stephen Morris next year, so hopefully we can keep him.

You got to wonder what impact Duke and some other freshmen will have. Calling all 'Canes fans, let's stick a finger in the eye of ESPN and the national media and support our team more than ever!

One question I have is if the NCAA has not finished its investigate by Thanksgiving 2012 and Miami is 7-5 or better, will the school decide to be precautious and self-impose a second consecutive bowl ban?

.

one question huh ?

it's called an "investigation" with "absolute" certainty ...

November 1012 huh ?

the ncaa will impose upon U like U never knew come October.

2016 pot kettle black.

Hey Manny and Susan. Someone suggested that football scholarships be extended at the U to six years for players. Can you ask Coach Golden if this is as idiotic as it sounds??

@ltdolphin

hahahahahahaha it really is idiotic. Even more so considering the source.

Hey canetillidie - your boyfriend woke up thinking about something I said days ago.

Better get your house in order.

Funny how the slime ball gator keeps possting here to diss on the U- yet, fat boy jumped ship now they are a team without an OC. In dissarray. Potentially 6-7. 3 yrs removed from their NC. When UM was 3 yrs removed from their NC, i.e. in 2004, they were 9-3.

On another topic- There are large numbers of coaching vacancies. Larry Fedora just took UNC's HC job. Where is Shannon? Why hasnt Shannon landed a job? UCLA, UNC, Memphis, Michigan, etc, etc? Simple. He was a terrible HC. Despite the many here who argued over and over that he wasn't. that Miami fans are racist. blah blah. Bottom line is Shannon RAN THIS PROGRAM TO THE GROUND. from not being able to coach is way out of a paper bag on game day, to poor recruiting (no the 2008 supposed #1 class doesnt count because thatclass is full of BUSTS!.

I am excited by Golden's ideas, energy and recruiting. 2012 will be etter. Guaranteed. 2013 even better

Funny thing is Shannon turned down a couple interviews early on, holding out for something better.

I'd like to see him come back to UM in a player development (personal, not on the football field...) role.

CANETILLIDIE your position calls are right on target. Relax about Shalala because our Football program is much bigger that 1 Person..There has to be a checks and balance system in place, and I do not believe Coach G would stay unless this is the case.

Let's review this Class, and come back breathing fire in 2012..just finish games and we would have at least 9 wins this year.

As always, I am sure all Canes fans sympathize with VT on their recent catastrophy.
It is a shame that one Campus has to endure so much..
Go 'Canes

Yes white heron you did make that ridiculous statement and when called on it once again you failed to backup what you wrote. And you look like a fool again.

Plus fire shalalalala the hobbitt now and make randy the president. School needs some real male leadership.

If anyone else was interested I'd explain it, I have no interest in trying to clarify my thoughts to a worthless jerkoff with nothing to contribute besides agreeing or disagreeing with people who can form actual ideas and opinions.

"This is for you Herbieibis - no I'm not blocked."
I bet he is, since his truly is NOT solar, CC or OGV's friend. He is Curse Piggy, obsessed with the Canes so much he even reads fan blogs, then posts their comments and questions on all the newspaper blogs in an effort to ridicule all canes fans. That obsessed loser is no friend of yours herbieibis.

"I'm known to you and the regular posters."
Really? Been to any of the tailgates? No? Dared to show your face anywhere, Curse Piggy? No?, then please don't pretend that you are friends with the people you have been attacking for the past five years.

"I'm just tired of that idiot telling people what to think."
So, you are here, telling us what to think, on a public forum, over what someone types on a PRIVATE forum? Hypocrite, take the beam from thine own eye before you worry the mote in another's eye.

"If you disagree with him in any meaningful way, you're gone."
You mean when you troll on there, he bans you, the way folks have begged for you to be banned on here? Shocking.

"Look at all the decent people he's booted or who left voluntarily because of his disrespect and arrogance."
Hmm, yet NONE of them are making a big stink about it, they just move on to other blogs. You however, being the Curse Piggy that you are, will continue to bring up this issue because you no longer have the Gators to brag about, and can't even jump to being an FSU or FIU fan in their place.

Herbieibis, you know this guy is not a Canespace poster, just a Canes troll. In fact, notice that he doesn't give his ID after he tried pretending to be solar, and solar came on to say it wasn't him. CC and OGV also said they are not this troll, and even others that moved on to JSQ's site are stunned at the obsessive hatred spewing from this loser.

I don't post on Canespace, but he has the right to restrict trolls like this guy from posting there.

5 Titles,
I don't care who he bans and if he chooses to shut it down for awhile, that's on him. For some reason the format changed and I can't post. Maybe I got dumped & don't know it. I enjoyed posting their but maybe I was to opinionated, at any rate, If you were insinuating, I'm some kind of anti Cane, your on another planet. I'm Tatted up with the "U". Hate FSU & Gators. I wouldn't pull for either of those 2 against Notre Dame, who was always, my most hated school. I quit posting on here for about a year, simply because I got tired of everyone worrying & posting about who's a troll or not. I like talking recruiting & keep up with it, and will say, this class although long in numbers, is devoid of difference makers, especially at DT & WR. I'm tired of us getting space takers at the DT position and to me that's the whole key to us getting the defense turned around.

Herbieibis,
I agree with you on this class. I hope that with the limited amount of scholarships that we have left that Coach Golden and the staff are truly going after big time difference makers like Deon Bush, Eddie Goldman and others of that ilk. The class seems to have enough players that have "potential" or can be "coached up".

This class has enough guys who could turn out to be Ray Lewis, Ed Reed and Santana Moss. We need to finish it up with guys who already are like Jerome Brown, Cortez Kennedy, Andre Johnson, Kellen Winslow, Jr., etc.

Five Titles is Soup or 86Cane or Skreetz

I am not the the troll pig, Soup. Im a Canes fan. But it was a nice try, anyway. I just think you are a disrespectful and arrogant assh--le who deserves to be called out. Your site is not private, it's publicly accessible. You are a public person whether you like it or not, and based on you arrogance and ego, you do like it.

Let people state their honest opinions and stop censoring opinions you dont like and maybe I'll stop calling you out.

I don't think golden has much of a chance with those big name difference makers who just want to play a few years and go to the league until the NCAA finishes its investigation and doles out its punishment.

It took three years for them to get to the bottom of the Reggie Bush thing - I believe they're only a year and a half into this investigation.

Worst part is that by the time they finish there won't be anyone left who was actually involved.

Actually spencer whipple will probably still be here as a graduate assistant.

If ever someone was born to be a fall guy...

Let us before this recruiting season gets in full speed ahead take a minute to thank Coach G for the teriffic job he has done to help our "U".

He has been Steady , Strong, and Resilient.
He has been Honest, and Up front with all questions.
He has been Supportive of His Coaches.
He is a fighter to the last whistle
He has been the Epitomy of what a True Cane should be, by words, actions, and deeds.

Thanks Coach for a New Outlook in our Program, and we cannot thank you enough for the decision to stay and be our Leader as we become a Force in College Football.

Good things are happening at the "U", and this Class I hope will add to your efforts to create a team that we can all appreciate.
The process works, just give it time.
Thanks again,
Go 'Canes.

Eudo,
You are correct. That was short sighted/stupid on my part to forget (how could I) that we still have sanctions hanging over our head and that the big time players that we still are after are being recruited by teams that are also big time programs like ours and these schools of course (and who can blame them) are using the sanction angle against us. Coach Golden's track record at Temple speaks for itself. I HATE to use the star system, because we all know how flawed it is, but is the best way for me to make the analogy. If Golden could win and compete with guys who were zero, 1 and 2 star players at Temple, he certainly will be able to win with the 3 and 4 star guys he is currently getting at UM.

First of all white heron you could be ver make a case for 6 year scholarships, especially after what you wrote about wanting more star recruits. But it would be interesting to see you try, you certainly did not on the other site.
Secondly you keep bringing up sanctions and how they are hurting us. Most recruits said it did not so I guess you need to find one that did say he went somewhere else because of that and let us know.
Thirdly whatever sanctions we get could follow the pattern of USC, although their problems were way more than us, or the initial sanctions of OS. But then again who really knows.
So here we are at the same place you spouting off and being unable or unwilling to back up what you said.
By the way there is a school that commits to 5 year football scholarships to give you a hint. They have never been relevant but maybe 6 would do the trick for them.
We await you being relevant.

The NCAA really should take into consideration the damage they cause with these drawn out investigations when they're deciding on the penalties - the more seasons you have the cloud over your head the more recruits you lose out on.

Itcdolphin - like I said, I have no interest trying to explain my ideas to a functional retard, if literally anyone else was interested id be happy to get into the 6 year scholarship thing.

herbie, it's gotten alot better on here, since the Gators went 6-6. I wasn't equating you with Curse, and I am sure that you would still enjoy the recruiting discussions on JSQ's site, for example. And like you said, it's his site, his problems, and his options. I don't go there, but I have been there in the past. I prefer the sequel site eyeofthehurricane on wordpress, more variety of opinion and topics.

I know that there are other sites that are free of this racist (he is the same guy that threatened to lynch coach Shannon) as well.

We will be weak at WR next year, unless Hurns pulls a Hankerson/Streeter final year blossomming.

But the DBs were more of a problem than the DTs last year, and will be more of a problem next year, too. How many INTs did we have the past two years on defense? I think it was single digits both years. We had sacks and stops for losses, that it the DLine, but we did not stop the ball once it was in the air.

Wow, you really are losing it. now I am SOUP for disagreeing with you? Strange, I go on Gator Clause and here and have never been confused with SOUP before. How about this.
I can try to get the REAL solar to come on here to say I am not SOUP. I can likely get JSQ to come on here to say I am not SOUP. I can likely get Susan to come on here to say I am not SOUP.

Can you get the real solar, CC, OGV, JSQ, Susan or Manny to come on here and say you are not Curse Piggy?

I doubt it.

In fact, I will make this clear. I have no problem with you complaining about SOUP, Canespace, or anything like that.

I have a problem with you using the name of solarcane after he told you to stop. I have a problem with you using the same tone and trolling attitude as Curse in the process. And I have a problem with you doing it repeatedly, on multiple sites, as if it was a campaign issue for the presidency of the United States or something.

SOUP can do whatever he wants with his site, and discussing it here is distracting from discussing the team itself.

You do not post here discussing how Golden was an upgrade over Shannon, while Muschamp was a drop from Meyer.

You do not post here discussing how Charles Robinson's slew of 72 players getting accused turned out to be all hype and instead of 50K cars, it turned out to be 5K in food.

You do not post here discussing how Eudo's suggestion of a second redshirt year (6 years total) would be too expensive for a top 50 private university compared to a stinking diploma mill like UF.

You post here only about comments on another site. We get it, you hate SOUP/86Cane/Skreetz. What is it you hope for US HERE to do about it, and why is it that both you and Curse Piggy are obsessed with Canespace yet are two separate people?

Man that is a thin looking defense. Some good promise with Chick and Perryman, not m uch production to date from any of the backups. Hopefully we get some good freshmen in and the senior safety pair can finally play up their potential (not holding out for that much though)


Itcdolphin - like I said, I have no interest trying to explain my ideas to a functional retard, if literally anyone else was interested id be happy to get into the 6 year scholarship thing.

Posted by: Eudocimus01 | December 09, 2011 at 12:14 PM

Eudo, I am interested, but I disagree. Players leave early as it is. And players are supposed to be just like the rest of the students in their workload and years to graduation. Bernie Kosar was able to do it. It will cost the school more, for little benefit, to have them here a sixth year.

ltcdolphin and CANETILLIDIE, cmon guys, let him explain without ripping him as "white heron", etc. We can disagree without needing to attack the messenger, since he is not an obsessed Gator troll. Accept the fact that it is not likely to happen, but that it has a right to be said, just like if I say the players should be paid a stipend (which I disagree with), or that the BCS is worthless without a playoff for the top 8 teams (which I agree with), or that we should move Clements back to defense because we have no DBs for next year (which I will strongly consider depending on who we get in February).

Five Titles - although I doubt you read my original comment, I should clarify that I don't think UM alone should offer anyone 6 year scholarships, it would have to be a NCAA-wide thing where schools were allowed to overlap scholarships after a player's athletic eligibility runs out.

If they were allowed to offer that most schools would. It's a much better deal for the athletes because they'd have the opportunity to pursue a real degree after they were done with sports, and the cost is completely negligible to the university as long as they don't have their athletic scholarships tied up in kids who aren't playing sports.

Tom Thumb Popadak aka Skreetz aka Blog Drama Queen aka 86Cane throws a hissy fit and says he's shutting down canespace for good or until his period is over.

VOILA!

Also, that EGOTISTICAL popaPuNK runs a bloody GOOD OL' BOY klan! If U know what I mean.

Chit, that POPApUnk even ran off some gals. Go bloody figures. Eh.

Not to besmirch Bernie but I don't think a lot of that business acumen sunk in while he was banging out those credits - the booze and hits to the head couldn't have helped either but he's been less than successful in the real world.

You're right that most players who are going to the NFL will leave ASAP and that some players can handle being a full time football player and graduating with degrees that will help them get a job but the vast majority of college football players are steered into humanities and are booted after 4 years with a worthless Sociology degree.

The cost of giving a player two more years is nothing, as long as they're not holding up a scholarship when they're not playing football.

Did Clements play CB in high school? Lee Chambers never really came around after his move...

Have to bank on Finnie and Crawford stepping up, I don't think either starting safety could switch and help out at CB like JoJo did this year.

If Golden could win and compete with guys who were zero, 1 and 2 star players at Temple, he certainly will be able to win with the 3 and 4 star guys he is currently getting at UM.

Posted by: Cane4Life | December 09, 2011 at 11:47 AM

Apples and Oranges bUbba. The Golden One's record at Temple is in another universe when it comes to coaching at the B.C.S. level. See this season's SORRY ARSE record.

In other words, Albert and his staff was bloody well OUT COACHED in AT LEAST three games this season! Say it aint so, bozo. And a SEASONED B.C.S. head coach would've won those 3 games.

Fortunately, South Florida was PATHETIC this season and ended up with a losing 5-7 record. Otherwise, Miami would have had a losing season!

Bottom line is the jury is still out on The Golden One and next season will probably be a 7-5 season for the Canes. Seeing that Miami will be penalized severly with the loss of scholarships. Eh.

Miami will be 9-3 next year. Guaranteed.

By the way- What OOc teams are on the schedule? Does anyone know?

FSU- at home
Va Tech- at home
Clemson-maybe
UNc- at home
BC- at home
Maryland-maybe...or NC State (no worries)
Duke- at home

No Ohio State
When do we play the returds? 2013?

Why isnt the Herald writing about Goldman (6-3 310) the best DT visiting UM this wekend?
