UM Canes nab their second four-star DB in one week. S Jamal Carter commits to Miami

On signing day next February, Al Golden's University of MIami Hurricanes could be stocking up on some much needed talent at defensive back. And Coach Golden, who isn't allowed to comment on specific recruits per NCAA rules, has to be thrilled.

Jamal Carter, a 6-1, 215-pound four-star safety from Miami Southridge, announced on Thursday afternoon his commitment to play at Miami beginning in 2013.

That would make two big-time DB commitments in one week for Miami. Earlier this week, highly rated Miami Northwestern cornerback Artie Burns committed to UM as well.

Carter, considered the 18th best safety in the country by Rivals.com, told our Manny Navarro on Tuesday that the other programs he liked are LSU, Florida State, Florida and Hawaii. He also said he read the latest Yahoo! report involving new allegations against UM and Golden, and told Manny,  "I read it. But I figured it isn't true. I believe Coach Golden. It won't affect my decision."

On Saturday, recruiting analyst Charles Fishbein of Elite Scouting Services told The Miami Herald,  “Getting both of those guys [Burns and Carter] would be huge for UM after they did so well to get Tracy Howard and Deon Bush last year. Most fans think they’re going to solve all the problems in one year. But it’s going to take two to three good recruiting years to clean up the mess they had here."

According to various reports, Carter was also offered scholarships from Arkansas, Auburn, Louisville, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Purdue, USF, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt, , Virginia and West Virginia.

Let's just say he was a much wanted commodity and that if he and the other players who have orally committed for the 2013 class keep their word, Miami will be very happy. Four-star quarterback Kevin Olsen, younger brother of former UM TE and current NFLer Greg Olsen, is the gem of the 2013 class. Olsen, 6-3 and 196 pounds, is from Wayne Hills High in New Jersey and rated the eighth-best pro-style quarterback in the country, according to Rivals.com.

Coach Golden told me on Monday that he expects his 2013 signing class to be about half the size as this year's -- that would be around 15 players, give or take.

So far, so good for Golden.

Welcome to the U Mr. Carter
The Canes are moving in the right direction. Taking their pick of the South Florida talent.

Dick calm down. You seem like you are having a panic attack. Look at all your posts. You act like if the U does good you would lose your job or something.
I guess that could be a reason why you are so consumed with the U, and are on so many different sites.
So who pays you Dick? Gators? SEC?
Enjoy your envy and hate Dick. You are making my night. I needed a good laugh.
Breath deep and repeat after me
IT'S GREAT TO BE A MIAMI HURRICANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT'S GREAT TO BE A MIAMI HURRICANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wait......wait! Let me get this straight...... Dude listens to our radio show, his other personality hangs out in the grove?! Next we'll find out that Soldy has Canes season tickets and a tattoo of Sebastion on his, well I don't want to think about that

UM was not a mess when Golden first got here. They were 7-5 and had beaten Oklahoma. Golden then let go of several underclassmen players, and played a bunch of true freshmen, while sidelining several other veteran players on the bench. The team went 6-6.

This spring he also let go of several more players.

Al Golden is partly responsible for the mess here too.

Where's Soldy? Come rub my feet and get another 6-pack of Busch Light form the fridge will you baby??...Soldy's mom from the other end of the the trailer cries out....

Soldy you SOLIDIFY my thinking that you are a moron and an envious fan who is thumped that the great Gayturds have not received any news about top recruits..YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS (2 in 2 days)

Fly a kite to Moosechump and tell him that this is his last year to either show up or head back to the trailer. BOOOOHOOOOO
You can carry his luggage for him...

Can't you see that on this site you are a joke..
Let it go and fade into the night..or should I say slither if that is possible.
Go 'Canes

So do you feel stUpid just about now or is that your normal state of being?
Gators got VH 3 from Tampa who is ranked much much higher than both of yours combined.
Check the facts before you post, the Gators, Noles, most SEC and ACC teams and many many more schools out there have more and better recruits than you do. So it's OK to be happy you got these 2, you gotta get something, but put it in perspective. You sound so stUpid.

Hey SOLDY... THE REAL DEAL G8turd

This is a great little video of a couple of Gator b-ball-ers getting their stories straight for the cops.

http://www.firstcoastnews.com/rss/article/200592/3/AUDIO--GMJ-Exclusive-Arrested-UF-Player-Says-Were-Gonna-Get-Off

Then, here are a couple of stories from the local Gainesville papers:

Tight end A.C. Leonard was arrested by the Gainesville Police Department for domestic battery. His attorney said he was a University of Florida student and that he was in a “situation where he will be well-supervised” not saying that Leonard was a football player.

A total of 27 Gator football players were arrested between 2005 and 2010. And more have been arrested and charged in 2011 as well.

Florida defensive tackle Leon Orr violated the terms of his deferred prosecution agreement. It's the 11th time a player has been arrested just since Florida coach Will Muschamp took over in January 2011. This is Orr's second arrest on the same charge. As an aside, he also was charged with driving with a suspended license on Feb. 24, 2011.

The stories go on, but you get the idea. People in glass houses...

Hey DeanDoUche

A.C. Leonard was suspended by Muschamp and decided to transfer out, he is no longer a Gator. Another very very talented player who was let go in spite of his talent.

Orr's original offense was smoking pot and then the violation you refer to was driving with a suspended license. Much milder offenses than domestic battery.

Muschamp is in charge now so who gives a crap about what happened prior to 2010.
As if this doesn't happen anywhere else. Muschamp is cleaning up the program.
Wasn't Golden in charge when Telemaque got arrested? Or was it Ray Buchannon or both?
So what's your point doUche?

Those are just a couple of examples. I can list them all if you wish. 16 total players arrested just since Muskrat took over the G8turd nation, ah county. That's cleaning up a program? I can't wait 'till Vanderbilt kicks your butt this year.
Did you watch the video? That was particularly entertaining. "We're gonna get off 'cause we're G8turds" Hee, hee, hee.

No I'm not wasting my time with your videos. Muschamp is definitely cleaning up the mess Meyer left behind. He is well respected nationally and hauling in the top recruits in the land. Gators are in good hands with him.
Vandy is a much improved team but the Gators are better. Now Vandy already kicked Wake's butt last season and it is safe to say that they would kick any second tier ACC team again this year. Including the 5th worst in the coastal. You know who that is right?

You keep on talking because it's the only thing that you tell yourself that you're good at besides highschool volleyball. Canes keep collecting recruits left and right. Your hate is our fuel. Keep on copying and pasting since that's the second best thing you're good at besides VOLLEYBALL.


GO CANES ALL DAY EVERYDAY!

now wait five seconds to refresh so you can jump all over this with your baby dribble.

Hey doUche how's that Tropical park petition going on.
