Broward's top player WR Stacy Coley picks the Hurricanes over FSU, USF

Wearing a UM hat with the word Swag draped across the front of it, Oakland Park Northeast wide receiver Stacy Coley -- the top player in Broward County -- announced he was signing a National Letter of Intent with the University of Miami Wednesday.

Stacy ColeyRated the fourth-best player at his position by ESPN, Coley said he chose the Hurricanes over schools such as Florida State and South Florida after sitting down with his family and talking it out on Sunday.

"I thought it was just beneficial for me and my family," he said. "Just stay home. I just hope I have the same success in high school and just help the U out with a national championship."

Coley, a two-time member of The Miami Herald All-Broward first team, finished with 29 catches for 513 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. He runs a 4.57 40-yard dash.

The 6-1, 173-pounder said he appreciated the fans he had in current Canes Tracy Howard and Deon Bush and was looking forward to playing with them rather than against them like he did in high school. Coaching changes at FSU did not affect his decision, he said.

His high school coach, Donnell Bennett, is a former UM fullback.

"It feels good," said Coley, who was crying during the ceremony. "I relieved a big stress off my shoulder and I can be an average kid again."

Manny, Any update on espn reports of Collins switching to Miami?

He better not be an "average" kid when he gets to the U,

As ALWAYS NOW, UM gets a small handful of players and the rest are scrubs. Collins, Bostwick, MT6, DK all fled from your flaming mess. Meanwhile, the states top team RAKED EM IN. Golden has put up a fence around Nigeria though. Man, the UM recruiting is a joke. But at least []_[] stole Gall(??who) from Bowling Green and Akron. What a hot mess.

If you see this crapfest and declare the U on the way back then you ate just plain stupid

Yep, UFailure rakes 'em in. Then, slowly, attrition through transfers and arrests and the realization that spending 4 years in a trailerpark is a miserable waste of time.

Don't believe me? Ask De'Ante Saunders and Matt Patchan. That cesspool in Trailerville is not the place for anyone other than a redneck trailer maggot.

Canes, baby.

DUDE GO HOME. ALL OF EM R HIGHLY RANKED. WHATS UR DEAL
#1 Wr in FL, #1 and #2 DBs in FL, #1 FB in Nation, Top 5 qb in nation, top 3 DE in Nation
3 Top Juco 100 players inc nigerian
1 top 20 prep kid -nigerian
GET OVER IT. ITS A SOLID CLASS RANKED 21 by ESPN Now

Why do U care what Miami signs? Just because Al Golden snagged top 5 players across the board, dont b jealous. And now Alex collins is switching , plus more to come later. I mean, go hate of UF and FSU board

Lmao at a cane cluck talking about attrition. Looked at your eroded roster lately dim bulb?

FLOCK YOURSELF> WHY R U ON HERE? DO U know how many schools would love this class
#1 Wr in FL Coley
#1 and #2 DB in SO FLA BURNS AND CARTER
#1 qb in jersey and top 5 nation Olsen
#1 DE in NJ #3 DE nation Muhammed
#1 TE iN JUCO
#58 De/lb rivals juco 100 bond
#77 DT Komalu espn juco 100
#20 top prep player Somalu OT
AND a few top 3 stars.

THATS A LOADED CLASS MY FRIEND IF WE HAD 25 COMMITTS IT WOULD BE TOP 5

I left off
#1 FB IN NATION GUS EDWARDS.

I mean GOlden has 6-7 #1 ranked at their position in their state and or nationally out of what 13 committs.........R U INSANE......
Oh, I left off ESPN 150 STANDISH DOBARD TIGHT END STOLEN FROM LSU AND ALEADY ENROLLED

GET A LIFE.. Becuase thomas didnt come??? Flock em

WHIFFED BADLY AT MOST UMPORTANT SPOT

GOT DT'S

My mommy said my bike is better than yours.

Idiots.

ACtualy, Espn #77 Juco Player DT Komalu, and Hunter Knighton the 3 star ranked #30 in New Jersey regardless of position is moving to DT.

So we do have 2...and more coming

I wonder what's going through Alex Collins' mind right now. Kind of feel for these kids and the pressure that adults put on them.

If ur filling out your biggest need with mediocre JUCO's, u gots problems

look it is perfectly understandable....the mom probably wants him close to home... my wife wanted my son close also this year....the parents are EXTREMELY IMPORTANT....that could sway him back to UM...

she could be the deal breaker

Well, #1 JUCO TE , #58 DE Bond on Rivals Juco 100, and espn Juco 100#77 isnt mediocre. That means that they are the top players at the Juco Level.

To me, those are great additions that can play right away...........we were too young

ALEX COLLINS IS WAVERING NOW!!!

Didn't sign any commit letter yet!!!

Apparently something going on with his family (maybe a family illness?)

Collins going to the U!!!

Collins paper work has not been submitted to Ark. because Mama is upset and hijacked the papers because she does not want the son leaving the area,..

This is a nutty as it gets..what a farce.
Who will win????
Stay tuned

Go 'Canes

GO MOMMA COLLINS!!

RAISE THAT BOY RIGHT-- MAKE HIM A CANE!

MaMa wants to see her boy play and be damned to fly out to Pig country to see him..

what a mess...
Go 'Canes

COLLINS UPDATE> OH MY, MOM WANTS HER BOY HOME


Jeremy Crabtree
Corey Long on ESPNU now talking about the Alex Collins situation. He is reporting from two sources that his mother has taken the LOI from school, "ran away" from the school and they're searching for him now.

Dom's understanding of the big picture is as weak as it gets. All this guy can do is spit out ranking service's highly debatable numbers. He doesn't grasp that there were tremendous screw ups everywhere. Lmao @"Dom is dim"

not at all.....her heart will be broken, thats her baby.....collins will break his word before he breaks her heart....pretty slick move if you ask me but understandable....totally

JACK ARSE, to me, when U get army all american Def End Muhammed, you cna move Fat chickillo to DT also. we got the top 2 DBS in FL , and #77 Juco DT and #58 juco De Bond. HOW IS THAT NOT UPDATING THE DEFENSE???

Not counting all the #1 rated offensive players....

THE DAY IS NOT OVER YET>................

of course you would laugh at Dom is Dim. You are as much a trailer maggot as the Curse Pig that posted it.

The list of transfers from the stinking Trailervilel cesspool is long and ugly, Gatr Trash. Almost as ugly as the mug on that plumber head corch of yours.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL UPDTE:

Louiville scored again.

ALex prob wantd to go to miami and didnt know how to say no to BRETT at ARkansas. So he went on TV. Now, he is blamin his mom so he can go to the U..

Remember he was all shakin up and posted im sorry I have to say no to some of u on his twitter acct.

HE WILL BE A CANE

JIM GALLO:

You are trashing the Gators. You alright by me!

But stop bashing Golden till he has FAIR run. That means creating his own team of players and coaches AND NCAA threats gone.

Then judge the man.

Which team is NUMBER ONE on that list Nostradomasse?

wrongggggggg,you are a complete idiot dom.... his post at arkansas was all arkansas..he loved it....she probably did take the paperwork...this is no ploy...I will tell you if he changes to UM, beielema will be gracious and thank both him and his parents with randy shannon and will send a message to sfla kids....this is a classy place to play ball....arkansas will invest in its future to booker t and the rest....

We have no pass rush help in this class??
Player: DE Alquadin Muhammad
School: Ramsey (NJ) Don Bosco Prep

Recruiting: One of the nation’s most heavily recruited players at his position, Muhammad had offers from just about everyone. He favored Notre Dame for awhile before they went in a different direction. He announced for Miami at the US Army All-American Game in January. He also visited Rutgers last weekend.

Scouting Report: Muhammad has outside linebacker size and quickness from his defensive end spot. He terrorizes offensive tackles with his quickness off the edge, and he's surprisingly strong against the run. He has the frame to grow into a fulltime defensive end in college or could see some time at outside linebacker depending on scheme. A heady player who reads the option well and is a weapon in passing situations - Scott Kennedy

2012 season: Muhammad finished his senior season with 12 sacks for a team that went 8-3. He played in the US Army All-American Game after the season.

Mike’s Take: Miami needed pass rushers in a major way with the 2013 class. Their 2012 pass rush was terrible – one of the worst in all of college football. Muhammad will help out with that in a big way. He’s a top notch pass rusher with ideal size and athleticism. He also comes from one of the premier prep

THIS GUY WILL BE A 1st ROUNDER

116, Can you still see Miami Kid TeddyBridgewater running all over the gators??

When the Sanctions are done. Miami will be back in top 5.........

BWWAWAHAAHAHA. Goin't to the ol' reliable "you never set foot in CG so you can't be a fan of the school."

Dis ain't redneck Trailerville, Gatr maggot. I guess half of the state of Florduh can't be fans of the Gatr trash using that logic.

Let 3/4 of the state of Alabama know that unless they attended the school they can't be fans.

What an ignorant Trailer moron. You are a product of the public education system in this state. How a university can admit a loser like you and an derelict like Mike Rosario and still consider itself a university in mind boggling.

fell bad for collins... just let the kid go where he wants to go... wtf?

*feel

collins will probably stay with arkansas...hell be the feature back for arkansas playing in the sec....I still in the end think he stays with arkansas,,,but who knows, well see

maybe he is going to fsu?....has everyone looking the wrong way...who knows

he wanted to go to the U< but his 2 yr relations with coach Brett at wisc then arkansas made him feel bad, but mom knows whats best......

I dislike the Gaytors too, but you have to give it to them and the class they have signed. Loss of Bostwick and Thomas is devastating! With the small numbers we have to get Bryant. We have to look forward to 2014 when teams won't be able to use the NCAA possibilities. I can also tell you this. D'Nofrio is hurting our abilities to recruit defensive players. Al's got to come to grips with this and realize his homeboy is costing him top defensive players.

Mr. Collins,

Mama knows best.

per espn
Jeremy Crabtree
@Sebastian: It's a smaller class, but is led by ESPN 150 WR Stacy Coley, the nation's No. 3 wideout and No. 47 prospect overall, and ESPN 150 quarterback Kevin Olsen, a pair of players coach Al Golden can build the offense around as he continues to retool this roster. Olsen, 6-2 and 195 pounds, is the brother of former Miami tight end and current Carolina Panther Greg Olsen. The Hurricanes bolstered their defense with the additions of ESPN 150 prospects Al-Quadin Muhammad and Artie Burns, along with four-star safety/athlete Jamal Carter. They bulked up on tight ends as well with four-star junior college tight end Beau Sandland, and Standish Dobard.

I am Jim "the DICK" Gallo.

I think every player will sign elsewhere. Every coach is horrible. Everyone should transfer. Basically, the southern half of the US will fall in to the ocean so I won't have to worry about Miami football anymore.

I am such a lonely miserable Pig. But you know, all of the Miami recruits who have signed may still go elsewhere.

Got it, green pea?

I still luv the KAK, green pea.

Lets meet up mano a mano Gallo and ill show you how much of punk i am. Pick a place in anywhere in the 305 coward and ill be there within 30 minutes. And will see who the man is. Que bola?

Your a p(_)$$Y Gallo!

Im calling you out Gallo! Que bola PUNK?

wow canes coming in at 21, what a coup by golden. loving this, and with more bad news coming out today on ncaa investigation into us it looks like we are home free, go canesssssssssss
