New Canes recruit Artie Burns "has explosion like Travis Benjamin, can take over games like Darnell Jenkins," coach says

First-year Miami Northwestern High coach Stephen Field feels like he's got a good handle on talent. 

Artie Burns takes some instruction from coach Stephen Field before taking the stage Monday and picking the Canes.
Artie Burns takes some instruction from coach Stephen Field before taking the stage Monday and picking the Canes.

As an assistant at Miami Central, Deerfield Beach, Belle Glades Central and Boyd Anderson, Field coached some of the most talented high school players to come out of South Florida in the past decade.

He feels like he's got another in Northwestern defensive back Artie Burns, a 6-1, 183-pound senior who committed to the University of Miami on Monday. Burns, an elite track and field athlete who is rated the 69th best prospect in the country regardless of position by ESPN in the Class of 2013, posted the fastest 110 meter hurdles time in the country last year (13.35) and the second fastest 300-meter hurdles time (36.06).

So what kind of athlete are the Hurricanes getting? A mix of explosiveness and intelligence according to Field.

"He's one of the best football players I've been around," said Field, who spent two years as a defensive grad assistant at UM (2006-07) before becoming the running backs coach and recruiting coordinator at Hampton University for three years. "He can explode like Travis Benjamin when I had him at Glades Central, and take over a game kind of like Darnell Jenkins did when I had him at Miami Central. He's a guy you can put all over the field and be successful."

Burns, a former Alabama commitment, is the first defensive back Miami has secured for the 2013 class. He has the ability to play cornerback or safety, but the Hurricanes are hoping to pair him with highly-touted incoming freshman Tracy Howard on the outside.

One reason Burns said he committed to the Hurricanes early in the process was because he wants to now become a recruiter for the team. "I want to tell the top recruits in South Florida to stay home," Burns said.

He said he plans to run track and play football at Miami.

What does Burns have to improve on before getting to Miami?

"Probably keeping his composure a little bit in certain situations," Field said. "He's so physical, gets so passionate, he can lose his composure every now and then. But he's a special player. Miami got a good one."

If he signs with UM on National Signing Day, Burns will be the first player from Miami Northwestern to go to UM since the infamous eight from Northwestern's 2007 National Championship team signed with the Canes. Northwestern has produced 16 players that have signed with FBS schools since then.

> UM coach Al Golden was asked Monday about the new allegations the team has faced since the latest Yahoo! report was released: "I'm not allowed to comment [on specific names], but we just got what we think is one of the best players in South Florida.

"At the end of the day anybody will tell you, you can have all the facilities in the world, but if you don't have a culture where kids feel loved and respected and like they're being developed on and off the field on a daily basis that's going to resonate with the recruits. They are going to know that. They are going to find that out. And I think what they're finding out at the University of Miami is that in addition to being a great institution and obviously a great football legacy that those things are happening. And that there is synergy there and we are making progress and certainly that is helping with us recruiting."

> Field said former Hurricanes Brett Perriman and Vernon Carey have joined his staff at Northwestern as assistants. Carey, who donated big bucks for a brand new weight room at the school, is a co-coach on the offensive line. Perriman will coach receivers. Defensive coordinator Luther Campbell, a big UM supporter in the past, has remained on staff as a carryover.

The NCAA is a joke. Today's actions show just how hypocritical they are and how much they care about student athletes. If it wasn't for the luv of my Canes I would ban college football altogether.

Tear down JoePa's statue? Abolish Penn State football? Close down the University? Yes, wonderful ideas. But only a beginning.

Right after that we need to tear down Mt. Rushmore, the Washington monument and any other statue, building, park or plaque that honors or bears the name of any of our elder statesmen who owned slaves. After all, these men and those in their employ systematically raped, tortured and starved the generations of human slaves they owned. We must then redesign all of our currency because nearly every coin or banknote depicts one of these despicable humans. No matter that recalling and exchanging all U.S, hard currency will completely crash our economy (so what, those guys were bastards and our currency is offensive because of it?) because step 4 of the plan involves burning the Constitution. Those jackasses considered Blacks one fifth of a person and allowed those they governed to hang, beat and rape Black citizens for nearly 200 years without penalty.

Next, we must go after the churches. Start with the Catholic churches, since they allowed their priests to molest thousands. Also, their superiors at the Vatican not only harbored Nazi's, but profited immensely from it. Anne Frank wasn't the only child to die in the concentration camps, you know.

Now that the little stuff (slavery, the Holocaust, institutional racism and rape by men of God)is obliterated, we can move on to what is REALLY wrong in the world- college football.

The ACC, Big Ten, and NCAA must go. One of these bodies allowed the other two to acquire universities with documented institutional cover-ups of multiple rapes and other crimes by their football players and staff. Granted, these crimes were against women and therefore not heinous enough to warrant the firing of a coach or anything, but we must wipe them out anyway. Carnegie Mellon has to go too. Do you know how many children were exploited and killed during the industrial revolution?

I hope I'm not leaving anyone out, but the whole Penn State scandal has me so righteously indignant and morally superior that I can't look at the big picture. I'll try to get there, but without the Constitution or free enterprise, there will be no media to tell me what to think.

O yea, Welcome to the U Artie!!!

Regardless of your concept or reality and morality, the wrongs committed by a coach which was greatly respected and admired must be (and were correctly) addressed. The other members of the University which allowed the negative influence and greed were and should be punished and made to serve time for their crimes (yes crimes). The sad fact remains the student athletes who had no reason to be punished for these crimes but were merely innocent are and will undoubtedly suffer tremendously........but most of all our thoughts should go to the victims who were the most affected by these poor decisions made by those leaders we entrusted with our children...........The right decisions were made today !!

I love it.Even in the face of what i now believe to be a false allegation,we pull in this guy.Probably Jamal Carter later according to CaneInsider.It's gotta piss off Cane haters everywhere.Al Golden is just simply a bad man who knows how to get it done.He knows he does'nt need to cheat to get South Florida kids to come to the U.They are beatin down the door to get in.CaneHaters:Stand by

I too hate the NCAA Plantation Owners, but great commit for the CANES! Makes me confident wwe get Carter too, but Artie's commitment probably means Vernon Heargraves goes elsewhere. I live walking distance to Wharton High in Tampa and my good buddy coaches his 7 on 7 team that beat the S. Florida team for the championship at IMG and this kid is the best cover corner I've see since Deon Sanders. Now Big Al Golden and boys need to close on some interior linemen, Bostwick, Bain and Senat. Damn Needed Some Good News!

Great post Nolekiller, rofl. The other thing to add to that, just goes to show how hypocriticl the nc2a is, they draggin their feet with the investigation on UM. It doesn't take this long to know people not gone do to much talking from one side, so as far as they're concerned, whatever you have now is about all you're going to get.

That penn st. penalty is a joke, just $60 million, lol, that equates to about all their home games with the t.v. revenue(conference and local penn st. packages sold), 20 schalorships reductions for 4 years, this punishment only punishes the local shops & vendors for the most part. The reduce scharloships will only help to limit the amount of players that the uniiversities scharloships supports, lol, mathematically this is a joke. How about fine them but still let them keep all their scharlorships, that'll force them to have to pay-out more money to have to keep 85 ships out their.

To reduce a college football team down to 65 players, all that does is punish the players who choose to stay. Who's going to run the scout teams, walk-ons, those schalorship players are going to get dogged out in practice.

I would like to add one other thing in regards to people that believe the actions today by the NCAA were appropriate.

What's the goal?

Discipline Joe Pa? (news flash....he's dead)

Discipline Sandusky? (he will be well disciplined over then next few years till he offs himself)

Discipline PSU administrators that were allegedly involved in covering this up? THIS SHOULD BE THE FOCUS. BAN THESE INDIVIDUALS FROM EVER BEING ASSOCIATED WITH THE NCAA AGAIN BASICALLY GIVING THEM THE DEATH PENALTY IN COLLEGE ATHLETICS. Let the Judicial system handle the rest.

Instead, the NCAA chose to punish students, student athletes, alumni and other non involved administrators. The NCAA should be ashamed for the farce they are trying to create with their actions today.

Artie Burns will never play a down for the University of Miami. If grades don't get him, the upcoming NCAA ban-hammer will. Today was the highlight of his University of Miami career.

Pee wee (how appropriate):

You dont think field and artie knew about the llegations?
Stf.u please

Nole killer
You left out the negroes who continue killing negroes day in dy out. In chicago 300 have died this yr alone.

And the japs who killed koreans and chinamen
And the muslims killing anyone else who is non muslim inluding jews catholics, negroes and ch..inkks

Great pickup for the Canes. Al keep doing what you doing dude, will be back. All these HATERS step back and stop trying to say this and that (Yahoo Sports, Gatorades,ect).

We need some d-linemen Coach we got them linebackers and dbs. Cant wait fall practice right around the corner.

NCAA will give us lil less than USC

good news for the canes,,the recent commit and the announced consequences for penn state who consequences will far exceed what miami will received!

So are you trolls starting to see the Golden light. Even with every thing going down the players are still signing on.
Can't wait to hear you write how nobody wanted the kid, or he is not as good as the mags rated him.
Keep those envy and hate fires burning and repeat after me
IT'S GREAT TO BE A MIAMI HURRICANE!!!!!!!IT'S GREAT TO BE A MIAMI HURRICANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't wait for the season to start LMAO at the trolls

I'm wondering if Miami had scholly offers to some PSU recruits..They had too..

We are the u, players come hear for the league and championships. Even if we get sanctioned, players care about the league. Bowl games dont get you in the league, its just one game. Nfl u. We will never die like penn state, our city is too strong.

Ur now on the NCAA's radar ... and there are so many U's

So which is it? The canes didn't do anything or the NCAA is corrupt and needs to revamp its rules?

And by the way UM could never survive the punishment handed down to PSU football. 60 million would cripple the program and hurt the university as well. It is essentially game-day revenue for five weekends in happy valley.

See, thats why idiots shouldnt be allowed to post anything. There should be an idiot filter. reality, the 60 million was calcualted as the one year revenue for PSU foootball.

Miami would never be penalized this harshly. Like ive sid, there will be one more bowl loss, and 20-30 scholies total over thenext 5 yrs, and 4-5 yrs probation.

8-4 or 9-4 next year

Calvin, you really have no sense of reality on the penalties. Those are substantial in nature. When the NCAA handed down enforcement penalties to USC they we considered very severe, Penn State's are even close. Penn Penn State vacated 111 vicories, USC vacated one season of victories, Penn State has a 4 year bowl ban, USC 2 years, both had 20 scholarships removed, an football ball can transfer from Penn State without sitting out a year, only Jr's and Sr's could have transferred from USC. Finally, Penn State was fine 60 million dollars, USC was not fined. One thought had the U received sanctions like Penn State would you think it's a slap on the wrist, quit being naive these sanctions have very much hurt Penn State in recruiting, and in just fielding a team. Their leading rusher is transferring, ironically to USC,

Welcome to da U Artie Burns!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Golden should be resolute.He s got a squeaky clean record.The culture obviously needs more cleaning up still.That said.......Burns committing to Miami is great,great news.Seems with his speed burst....he s better suited to return punts or play wr ....ala Travis Benjamin.The fact he s crazy/in love.....like Duke Johnson about the U is also tremendous.It s great for Golden in so many ways.The kid obviously shows loyalty and tremendous leadership potential.It will bring amazing classes in the years to come at the U.Just look what Duke Johnson s recruiting and Chickillo s recruiting has done in helping kids want to stay local and attend Miami.Through the grey clouds and rough waters............ I see unmistakenly.......the quiet,steady,progression of positive,growthful steps along the way in the U s long-term VISION of unstoppable success.Both at the University and in the football program.Setbacks and naysayers will take shots and attempt to derail the U.However.........silently,the positive momentum is developing and growing underneath and the U is maintaining their course in a very determined and absolute manner that has yet to come to full fruition.Canes are on the correct positive path.....and now.......it s just a matter of time before all will become witness to how far/much they ve overcome and the tremendous successs that they ultimately will enjoy.GO CANES.

Well said Joe. We got a couple of 5-7, 6-6 seasons ahead of us but we will return with Coach Golden leading the National Championship parade down Biscayne Boulevard.

GO CANES!!!

Artie Burns welcome to the 'U'.

With the enthusiasm and skill that you bring to the table it makes the necleus to rebuild stay on track with Coach G.

We are getting good athletes such as Duke, Tracy, Chick, and others bringing the 'U' back to what the 'Canes have been. Champions in College Football.

I certainly believe that many of the 'Canes opponents are taking note, and the rebuild that is taking place, with good athletes who are winners that have the ability to move to the next level, solidifies this concept.

Artie make the best of your opportunity to study, work out, and enjoy the College experience along with other players that will become part of your family...
Welcome again.
Go 'Canes

Hey Joe, you got it!

At the end of the day, winning is what will determine who signs with the U....Sure a great Coach can make an impact during recruiting but these young men want to Win and play at the next level...Miami has long been both a Winner and a ticket to the Show, now we must move on from past violations and get back to what we do best!!!...South Florida has always provided the U with outstanding talent and we are getting back to understanding that, keep it up AG...Can't wait for our Opener!

Calvin, you really have no sense of reality on the penalties. Those are substantial in nature.

You don't have a sense of reality for what i posted! Go back and read it, maybe than you'll see how off base you are. The punishment is a joke because it punishes the players mostly. Of course $60million would hurt UM, that's obvious being that we're a private college, so that argument is assanine. penn rape is a state institution, so what the hell is $60million to them, do the math first before trying to side with the nc2a, 1 year, how long was shamedusky their, so how much revenue/profits did does bastards hiding shat collect while he was their, so again, what the hell is $60million.

Those penalties are a joke because they basically just punish the current players, the players who wanted to come their as their dream schools, more than likely the vendors and cleaning crews/support personnel if the team is not supported like it has been in the past. Other than that, it's a stupid penalty. $60, hell they made that in the 80's & 90's, the big ten has always made millions with t.v. revenue alone.

Hell, at this point, even UM could handle a $60million dollar fine if the reports are true about the monney that's been raised. To many business tycoons in this area who handle that $60million. But whatever UM is accused of doing and any other program has done, as of right now, doesn't even compare to what went on up at penn rape. Those mofo's are the valedictorians of disgust.

Welcome aboard, Artie! You've already proven that you're a true Cane... that is, you committed even in the face of a "manufactured" storm... A true Cane withstands the headwinds of the hurricane and places himself at the eye of the storm, where he finds calm... and understands it's all about the "U"!

We're proud of you and the other commits for understanding what it is to be a Cane. Welcome to the U and the Golden era!

Congratulations, Artie! You made a great choice for yourself and your family. You will receive a great education and the opoportuinity to be part of something special in your home community.

The sky is truly the limit at UM!

Warmest welcome to you and your family!

Artie chooses a top quality education and a top chance at an NFL career over having to worry about burning crosses and hearing pigs get worked each night.

Smart move.

Oh great, another Northwestern kid!

The problem with the last NW bunch is Shannon had to take a few to get the 2 or 3 he really wanted. I don't think this will apply to Burns....this kid will ball out.

Congrats cane fools, you just landed a top recruit.
Contrary what most of you fools have predicted, no one has said the kid is no good or a bum, he is a top recruit indeed.
Now last I checked your recruiting class, even with this Artie kid, is still off the top 15 nationally and still way way way behind the two top Florida schools.
Also is it really that hard to keep a local kid home, just like with Tracy. I mean how much work does Golden have to do to land local kids who want to stay home. He just needs to recruit better than FIU to keep them. No big deal. How's he doing with out of state kids, or central and north FLA kids?
Didn't know Uncle Luke is coaching at Northwestern High. Maybe the NCAA needs to have a close look at this. Careful cane fan what if rumors surfaced that Uncle Luke is illegally recruiting for UM? Nahhh that is not possible, there is no precedent. Right?

You crazy homie. You banned in the USA.

Golden keeps pulling in some good ones! And he wants to help recruit. The haters can't stand this.

The Penn State penalties were fair. Some make assessments without reading that Freah(?) report. If you read that report you will see how bad it was.

Hey ACC Sucks and yada yada yada. I am just wondering what team do you root for? Cause you always have something to say but yet you never express who your team is? Man up already and don't give me the simple puss answer that your team is Alabama. Cause that would be a flat out lie.

Mr. ACC Sucks, you're showing your ignorance... Miami probably won't be in top 15 recruit rankings for 2013, as they only have about 13-14 scholarships to offer this year... The rankings are usually based on the # of 5, 4, 3 Star recruits... If you look at the rankings closely, you'll see that other established programs, such as Oregon and Stanford, with a small class allotments this year are actually behind UofM.

Check your facts, you dope!

"Also is it really that hard to keep a local kid home, just like with Tracy. I mean how much work does Golden have to do to land local kids who want to stay home."

This guy is so dumb. Let's see. I guess the same could be asked of every school in the country. It doesn't keep the UFailure from gloating over every central Florida 'neck they happen to land. How much does Muscrap have to work to keep Billy Bob from Alachua County who wants to stay home?

See how that works you rising-senior at Aquinas with the dim future as an tOSU grad? Would love to see the list of rejection letters this moron has filed.

No, you are the dUmmy. Both UF and FSU pull kids from all over the nation, including So Fla. UM HAS to keep a few high rated local kids home just not to fall behind any more than they already are.

"Miami probably won't be in top 15 recruit rankings for 2013, as they only have about 13-14 scholarships to offer this year... The rankings are usually based on the # of 5, 4, 3 Star recruits."

Not only won't they show for 2013 but also for many years down the road. You think it's bad now they only have 13 scholies or so, wait until the sanctions hit and you'll have even fewer and still no 5 star kids at all. Sucks to be U.

" Both UF and FSU pull kids from all over the nation, including So Fla. UM HAS to keep a few high rated local kids home just not to fall behind any more than they already are."

BWWAHAHHA. This poor dope has no clue. If you call Alabama and as far away as Louisiana "pulling kids form all over the nation," then, yeah, Aquinas-rising-clueless-senior then, yeah, UFailure sure does have a "national" recruiting base.

Unfortunately for you, low-SAT boy, the Canes pull from all over the nation. That would include areas outside of SEC-country. You know, places like New Jersey, Texas, California, Colorado, et al. Seems that is "national." That you think UFailure's reach is more national than Miami's is proof of how much you have to learn, junior. Go back and look at Miami's recruiting base. Historically, is only 50% Florida kids. That number is closer to 80% for UFailure and even FSU.

Now, ol' Timmy "bible boy" Teblow and John "legacy-but-a-failure" Brantley didn't travel more than 50 miles to get to Trailerville.

Without using Google, do you even know the last time UFailure played an OOC game outside the state of Florida? It may alter your UFailure "national" thinking, you future "tOSU" middle-management doofus.

Let's not forget the topic of discussion is not the first post but the title of the Blog!!

The U will be just fine with local talent like Artie Burns. We have to cherry pick our talent like USC has been doing since they were put on probation. You know it is coming but just don't know when. There will be some kind of punishment handed to the school, but like NoleKiller69 said it only punishes current and future students, atheletes, and staff members.

While we plan on facing punishment from the Larry Coker and Randy Shannon era both of these coaches will be working. While we are facing future sanctions both Kirby Holcutt and the late Paul Dee were employed by within the NCAA athletics.

Worst of all the biggest names in accused in these scandals like Clint Hurt and the current OL coach for Alabama will still be allowed to recruit and coach players from the same region of the school they helped place under sanctions. Players like Teddy Bridgewater and Artie Burns were recruited and or play for these same coaches that are currently tied to the Nevin Shapiro scandal.

The NCAA is a joke. They nearly destroyed SMU with the death penalty and then allow a national award for the best running backs to be named after the Pony Express" Doak Walker".

How is all this fair to punish a school and not actually punish the people who broke the rules?

Punishing PSU is not the same as punishing an NFL franchise like the New Orleans Saints. College football lives in the Now while a business like the Saints live for the future. To punish the Saints for what they did last year or five years ago would make sense because it is a business with long term employees. However, to punish an institution of higher learning for what it did five years ago is not fitting because college is a temporary position for most coaches, players, faculty and staff.

With all this said I would like to refocus on the future of the Hurricanes. We are in good hands with a coaching staff that Al Golden has brought to South Beach and that alone will help keep the talent in Miami. No matter if you go to LSU, USC, Alabama, Ohio State, etc the training and preparation you get from Miami is second to none. Coach Golden and his staff are as good any other coaching staff you will find in the Nation and our ex factor is Coach Andrew Swassey. The best strength and conditioning coach probably in the world. I believe he is the reason Miami has remained and NFL pipeline for years.

Welcome aboard Artie!!! You made the right decision. Here you will be loved by all Canes fans and your community. Nothing like playing in front of family man, remember that.

"Miami would never be penalized this harshly. Like ive sid, there will be one more bowl loss, and 20-30 scholies total over thenext 5 yrs, and 4-5 yrs probation.

8-4 or 9-4 next year"

I couldn't agree with you more. I'm personally leaning more towards 8-4 with a self imposed bowl ban again. I don't think that we will be punished as harshly though in regards to ships, IMHO. Ignore the highschool volleyball player tiny little rants with my handles. 6-6 my a55 hahahaha. That simply wont happen. This is a different team without the "me first" players and now that Golden has cleaned house he will mold the team to his liking. He's doing everything right and numbers don't lie. Weight room numbers are up, disciplined has improved throughout the team, players are being held accountable for their actions, there is order in the House of The U once again. This is the type of order that Howard, Jimmy, and Butch created.

Haters will do what they do, hate. That's all that they know. They cried for so many years about Miami ripping their teams apart left and right and now that Miami has had a few bad years they're letting their frustrations out. This is very typical behavior for children, to lash out with no remorse or sense of consequences of their actions.

GO GOLDEN!!!!! GO CANES 2012!!!

ACC Sucks since you ignored the question, which I am sure you read, I will ask again. Stop playing with yourself in your basement, put down the Fruit Loops and answer the question below. Stop being such a wussy.

Hey ACC Sucks and yada yada yada. I am just wondering what team do you root for? Cause you always have something to say but yet you never express who your team is? Man up already and don't give me the simple puss answer that your team is Alabama. Cause that would be a flat out lie.

@ E K

Great post. Well thought out and hit many KEY topics.
Great to see real Canes fans in here.

UF went 0 for 7 this year on recruiting QB's they wanted until they got a 3 star. They lost out to Bama, BC, Ole Miss and UM(Olsen, 7th best QB in US from NJ) but according to fans of school with 43 arrests UM only gets local kids. Last year on Natl. Signing day Muschump went 1 for 8(only getting FSU decommit). They thought they had Diggs, Algohor, Tracy Howard. Golden beat Muschump head to head for Howard and Olsen. Muschump can't close

He's announcing early to help with recruiting? I don't care about his 40 time, I love this kid just based on his desire to help the team.

MNW coaching staff...lol.

Listen cane dUmmys, if it makes you feel good to fantasize that Golden is such a great recruiter and that be beats UF and FSU and all ACC teams at it go ahead and wallow in your delUsion. I know you need to make up stuff in order to get away from your dismal reality so go ahead.
I'll give you that Golden landed Tracy and now Artie. But so what? Not like Tracy was gonna be the top prize for UF, he was going to be one of the many many top recruits for UF that season. Reality is that even without Tracy and all the others you mention, UF still landed a ton of top recruits and was ranked very high.
Reality is that if Golden had not landed Tracy his puny recruiting class would have been unranked. Actually it is still unranked.
And yes Olson is the 7th best QB prospect, big woop. He has a history with UM via his brother and family, so again, is it such a coup that Golden landed him? I think not. Driskel was the top rated QB in his class, he is only a soph. Brisset was highly ranked too, Golden really wanted him. Again only a soph. So QB right now is not a priority for UF.
Bur I know you clUcks don't like to hear facts and be faced with reality. So enjoy the rest of the summer and pretend you are back, like you've been saying for the past decade.
Enjoy the summer fools, reality will soon hit you in the face again when the games start and the losing resumes.

"Reality is that if Golden had not landed Tracy his puny recruiting class would have been unranked. Actually it is still unranked."

--------------

We finished with a top ten class you IDIOT.

Father God, I rebuke all of the nay sayers on this page. For crying out loud - whatever ever happened to congratulating this young man, that made a choice to go to college period. Regardless of UM's past and present circumstances, let us focus on welcoming this young man and pray that he will succeed in making his optimism come true in whatever he does in life. Congratulations, Mr. Burns. I know your mother is very proud of you. The STRUGGLE and The HARD WORK towards a goal/ success is part of the rewards. Achieving ... Hope you will be able to climb all your mountains always.
