Miami Hurricanes welcome another Hurricane to 2013 signing class

  As our Barry Jackson just posted on his blog, the Hurricanes have their 18th football signee for the 2013 class.

  This one -- four-star running back Cornelius Elder, who goes by "Corn,'' -- appears to be a good one. UM badly needed another running back, with Mike James gone and recruit Alex Collins choosing Arkansas. The status of veteran RB Eduardo Clements, wearing a neck brace, is unknown. 

   Elder, from Nashville, Tenn., expects to play football and basketball at Miami.

   Rivals.com has Elder -- listed as 5-10 and 170 pounds -- ranked No. 157 overall in the final class of 2013 football rankings, and has him as a three-star point guard in hoops.

   Elder, who is gettlng lots of "Welcome to the U!'' tweets, posted a tweet earlier today that said, 

"Just committed to the university of Miami been my favorite school since I was little #blessed glad this over with''

WOW!!!!!

GO CANES!!!!!


So no more scahlorships huh, but welcome to UM cornelius elder from tennessee, lol. This is the year of the out-of-towners. No room for the F-CAT players. So right now we got 18 commits an climbing, maybe this is who we pulled denver kirklands scahlorship for, but this is new to me, cause i've never seen a d-tackle at 5'10 160lbs myself, but whatever works must be the motto!

So who got kicked off the team already, goldie is to busy playing yo-yo's with this roster. None of the defenders will get developed if they keep getting dimissed as soon as they start becoming relevant. Who cares if eddie johnson luvs to fight anybody, teammates/coaches right now, it's football, we need that same mentality on the field every game, lol, goldie wants the kindler gentler athletes on the team, lol.

You have to keep a guy like eddie johnson on your team and let him grow as a person. Plus some people need to put it in the air, helps them calm down for real. If we go into gaytorville without eddie johnson, that'll make us that much softer. Any of the players on the committee trying to vote ej44 of the island, relax with that and take care of our bretheren.

Unless Calvin knows what EJ is in the doghouse over, pipe down on the punishment opinions.

Go canes!!!!!

MANNY AND SUSAN!

Did you read the Herald's statement on their commenting policy? This blog should require people to sign in, maybe not Facebook profiles but at least having to register one email with one username to comment.

I would prefer no comments section in the Miami Hurricanes blog to the embarrassing, obsessive trolling back and forth here.


"In print, we have carefully articulated viewpoints, signed by the author. Online, anonymous posts often devolve into a volley of name-calling.

These caustic comments would never be printed in The Miami Herald. We believe they shouldn’t appear on our website.

Beginning Monday, readers who want to comment on stories posted on MiamiHerald.com will be required to log in using a Facebook account. We believe that anyone who has something to say should be willing to put their name to it.

For years, we have wrestled with this dilemma. Tens of thousands of users comment on our online stories each year, a virtual town hall that at its best creates robust community conversations on important issues. Too often, however, the rational voices are scared off. It is one of the complaints we most often hear about our website."

Yo Cane trash

Yo first a TE and now a RB
All 5'10" 160 pounds
Who says we need DTs
We got some TEs, WRs and RBs

Yo Golden Retriever has a fence, soon to be a wall, around Africa and Rhode Island
Yo dom the dUmb clUck tells us where Corn ranks in Tennessee. Is he the #127 player in Tenn or what?

Yo someone said a 6 TE set coming up in 2013
Too funny

Yo got some DTs?
Got some PEDs?

Bunch of pathetic LOOSERS!!

I think this coming class (2014) will be the one that takes us to that level where we can really see a change. He's going to get d line men he has no choice to. I guess he's loading on offense because building a d shouldn't be as diff as trying to find extreme play makers like their Doing

My opinion

Jack Mehoff - there's a difference between an article and a blog. And, something the Herald has failed to realize, between an online comment and a comment a paper chooses to print in circulation. Systems such as Disqus and others with credentials, but the ability to have a username, would have been much smarter. For many reasons, even with legitimate comments, people don't like to use Facebook for such things.

Calvin

I see what you done up there!!!

Raise up off my homeboy!!

The last rb that went to um from here was the best rb on the team for 3 years

Lol

If Gallo/Calvin were to leave would that free up a scholarship? Or, would it free up 2?

Wow! Quick, does not lose any speed when making cuts. Compettiton may have been mediocre though. Welcome to THE U!

Wow! Quick, does not lose any speed when making cuts. Compettiton may have been mediocre though. Welcome to THE U!

You guys are so stupid, responding to a repeat copy and paster like "Jack Mehoff". Don't you get it?
Just like Master Bator or Buster Cherry, Jack Me off.
You think this guy is for real and serious?
Shame on you miacane86 and ugocanes for falling for this grade school play on words.

Not bad, we needed RB's. We moved up to #14 on 247 sports So, w/Pending Sanctions and crap, al still pulled in a top 15 class. (247 averages all the sites combined)......We have a ton of young DTs that didnt play last yr, so ENUFF WITH THE D CRAP.. geesh, we just played a ton of young kids.......

I would GUESS ,that maybe Coach Golden has heard something that the NCAA is doing. He wanted to self impose sanctios, but being up to 18, 5 enrolled early counts to last yr doesnt it?? so thats still only 13 on this class........

Way to go coach!!!!!!!!!!! #7 athlete in the US

Here is the link, Bash all U want , he is the 5th best player in the entire state of tennessee on rivals regardless of position. stolen right from UT. That makes up for Alex Collins.............

/////////////////////////////

We got a real good idea what time it is with ej, just like we did with ray ray armstrong(basically they gave him the silent, either pick football or your girlfriend you can't do both), with ej44 it's a lil more gruff than that but nothing that a strong headcoach shouldn't be able to handle. But when yougot goldie always trying to moon-walk when he gets himself into situations, i'm not seeing the strength that's needed with a player like ej44, so if i had to put money on it, that man probably won't be here come next year.

just notice how basically most of the guys being kicked off the team are from the defensive side of the ball, that'll give you a clue.

The kid runs a 4.42 40 yrd dash, in high school. We are loading up on athletic speed guys. The OLD U is on the way back...WELCOME CORN!!!

"I am Cornholio! You do not want to face the wrath of my bunghole, for I need TP!"

What nash, lol, as soon as i saw that man was from tennessee, you know i wanted hit you up cause i knew you were going to tr and represent for em, lol. All i want to know is if he's from orange mound, if so, he belongs here. But i like how you said "the last runningback that was from tennessee was the best on the team" lol, back than, that wasn't saying much, but he did play with the most heart to me, gave it his best go, but i know you fo real, if you're depending on him to be your primary weapon, that was always a sign we didn't have the right athletes on this team.

So now we got this new one coming from that way again that looks like he's running in socks with them long strides like robert smith that use to play with the minnesota vikings!

What he said

Not too thrilled about a 170 pound running back. What we needed was a power back with speed like Collins and James to compliment Duke.It keeps the defense off balance and keeps the RBs fresh and less chance of injury. The Fact that we had James contributed to a lot of Duke's success last season.

calvin, it is unbelieveble...the mystery scholarship shows up for a 170 lbs 5'10" #157 nobody...but lets tell kirkland a much needed 305 to the defense that...sorry none avalible...however after 2 days we found one....then say to herald cant...no more, self sanctions....then like magic, lol

this is so funny it is sad....I hope luther/harris dosent find out..

Calvin melrose is the school you are referring to with the orange mound statement. I am from Memphis I know that Tennessee has some good football that is played there. Basketball players come from Memphis and the west part of tenn. the good football players come from Brownsville on over to eastern side of tenn. I normally like lb,oline and dlineman from tenn. I haven't seen him yet but we have some good players that come out of tenn and hopefully he will be great addition to the U.

"The only thing I'll say and I don't believe in airing that out publicly so I'm not going to that. Again, there is a difference between pulling a scholarship and having none left. It's tough when you get to this point in the year. If it's any normal year, I can absorb going over one. But we had a hard ceiling this year because of the self imposed penalties and I was up against it. The commitments that i had gotten a run on commitments Wednesday, Thursday and you're out. So, that's all I can say to that in terms of just making sure we're on the same page. I was against a hard ceiling and I had no room."

Thank you for not calling gallo a lier.....oops

Welcom to The "U" Corneilus Elder..

Highlight tape on youtube is off the charts. This kid was offered by alot of major D-1 programs. Glad he decided to come to "SWAG" U...

GO CANES

He is being counted as a basketball commit, I've seen him play both sports, great RB and PG!

Check out our new signee to the "U"..Corneilus "Corn" Elder...looks like the truth..

updated list:

Aren't 5'10" or 11" 170 lbs. 4.4ish athletes a dime a dozen in Florida? Looks like the local South Florida and Tampa high school programs are not receptive to Golden. I never hear anyone question why that is the case with this coach. I know I saw it constantly with Coach Shannon.

If we are going to add late signees, I wish we'd get some DTs. We need run-stoppers more than any other position right now.

So the lameness of these idiots on here about Goldens recruiting is falling apart again. Now all you lames have to talk about is no DT's. There is enough DT's to last us until next years recruiting.

Once again Golden has proven his recruiting is right up there with anyone in the nation. I laugh at all these idiots, which are actually 3 and we know who they are, who proclaim how bad Golden is.

Haters will hate on Al and the U will continue to improve until they will say but they haven't won back to back championships. I can say the idiots on here do keep me entertained with their constant negativity, only to move on to a new issue when they are proven wrong.

Welcome to the U Elder, you bleed the orange and white, unlike others who went elsewhere. Congratulations Al on another well done recruiting class in the face of NCAA sanctions.

Right on CHARLES

(charles stone by any chance?)

great job coach g...lets go canes....the guy looks really good on film..very smooth

THE CURRENT CANES EMPIRE LIVES AND DIES BY THE MOVES OF AL GOLDEN...

Simply true.

Look at Saban at LSU and ALABAMA.

Every decision is in the hands of the Coach. And until you are operating at the level of a DIV 1 CFB coach, then you don't have much room to criticize.

That's like being the average Joe Schmoe questioning the techniques of a Neurosurgeon. Come on...

So to Calvin, Gallo, Canetrash... shut the hell up, because nobody agrees or buys your daily crap you take here.

NOBODY.

You guys are just wasting blog space. You make no difference in our opinions or the success of the Canes program.

But bang away at your keyboards, i guess retards have to do something besides take up space on the planet...

Yo Cane trash

Yo pass the Kool Aid..........
Great job coach
A RB, add that to 3 TEs and a WR
Wat to go coach
Loading up on need, right?

Yo CharlestheClUck U bleed Orange and White?
White? What happened to the Green?
Don't get it

Yo Mr Corn is 160 lbs not 170
He's a RB not a 300 lbs DT
U say U got many DTs already
As in #117
Great job coach
Where's that Kool Aid?

Yo NostraDomAsse, dom the dUmb clUck
U got the #127 player in Tennessee
To go with the ones from NJ, Rhode Island and Ethiopia
That Golden Retriever got a wall
What a recruiter
Pass the Kool Aid clUcks

Bunch of pathetic LOOSERS!!

Cal Elder is a good pick up...

But IMO Craig Cooper>Corn Elder...

My be better served as a db once he gets his weight up.

Plus it aint really hard to recruit a guy who says he's a life long cane fan...

Unless he lives in "the state Miami"

Did he sign with a football or basketball scholly? Makes a difference in the overall count.

And they say we're the bad guys, lol!

"THE CURRENT CANES EMPIRE"

Empire???????????????
As in the Mediocre Empire
The Empire of Futility
ClUeless Empire
Empire Number 117

Let's look at Saban at LSU and Bama and then look at Golden at Temple and Miami
Not a pretty sight, for Golden and Miami that is.....
Saban vs Golden
The master vs the clUeless
The been there done that vs wait til next year
The Winner vs the Mediocre Wannabe

The level of delUsion here is off the charts

Do you guys realize there is 18 defensive line men on the current team? You coach them up. You don't need to add more. Not to mention the JUCO beasts that we just got.

"The only thing I'll say and I don't believe in airing that out publicly so I'm not going to that. Again, there is a difference between pulling a scholarship and having none left.

Hmm, weird how you didn't post the entire interview where Golden said he had one more scholership available that he was hoping Collins would take. Now that Collins isn't coming it's not too hard to imagine where the scholership came from.. You seem to only pick out parts of conversations that are relevent to the point of your argument instead of the entire thing.. I guess thats what narrow minded people do though..

ROFL, putting the schools on their was classic, the sad part about it, it's True.

Add:
jackson
columbus
university school

too, these people celebrating some out of town 5'10 160/170lb recruit, here's what i want to know, and add this to the "goldie is really bs'ing now" category, but did this guy come to one of coach goldie's footall camps, if not, how did he end up offer, inquiring minds want to know. Captian, Captain Caaaavvvee Maaaaannnnn!

I can only imagine how the high school football coaches in FL feel in that practically nobody from their schools panned out for UM. U build a football program with home grown talent.

This doesn't bode well for anything. Nobody from the Muck. Nobody from Carol City, Ft. Lauderdale, just not enough native talent.

Memo to "Goldy: Go back and see how JJ did it. Go see how Howard did it. Go see how Butch was doing it. That's how U create your buzz.

Hey, I like Eddie Johnson too, but isn't he fropm GA--should those Luke and Ice backers be happy if he gets dropped. So many of our greatest Canes have been from out of state. Both Heisman winners, all but one national champ QBs, Maryland, Kennedy, Reed, and on. I want all the best local kids too, but so many are grinding agendas. I actually paid tution at the U and what I want is titles wherever the kids are from. Actually, if we had followed Luke, Ice and Selio advice all these years we would still be know as Suntan U. THE U is one of the biggest international brands there are stop trying to limit to couple of high schools. Granted the best ever Cane, The Mad Stork, was a local so we should never turn our backs but Howard's fence was to keep others out, not to keep our coaches in!

So let me get this straight, we didn't offer and fought with mackaensie alexander because he wouldn't come to one of the camps, and didn't recruit like we should'e cause he didn't come to one of the camps, but we got all the way to tennessee to get a recruit.

gallo, i think it's starting to make sense now, since tennessee is called the volunteer state, make goldie thinks this recruit won't count against our schalorships, if True, smart move by goldie!

lol, these comments are absurd... wtf is going on in here?

and this kid looks like a solid pickup... can never have too many athletes

Lmao I just saw another bad post, this idiot, I mean canestrash just said Elder was #127 in Tennessee maybe in the nation, but #5 in Tennessee, once again another idiot with bad info. Continue to hate its quite funny as usual

Plain and Simple, if the Florida kids dont want to come, go get kids who DO. SPEED IS SPEED, all states got it, FLORIDA just have more of it, but the FLORIDA kids will return with the 2014 Recruiting Class, best believe this, Golden served noticed to all local recruits, if u want to come to the U, u better commit early if not, we will roll all over U. Goldend did make a mistake with Kirkland and probably lost out on Thomas as a result, dont really care about Collins, good RBs come a dime a dozen. Based on our Rivals Star Average per recruit, we could possible be rank #14 in the country right now, Rivals.com. If we had another 4- Star Recruit, we would be rank at least 20th, not bad Golden!
