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''

Best believe this, if go 7 & 6 next year, either goldie or his boy oach OH-NO will be served notice to GTF away from here. He pulling schalorships like we were out their dominating teams last year, lol, bad move.!

Golden will be here as long as he wants. ACCEPT IT.

He's got a winning attitude, he's turning the program around, and he buys into the concept that we must win at football and in the classroom.

Last i checked, my alma mater is a University for higher education-- but guys like Calvin, CaneTrash, and Gallo probably stopped at highschool, so as usual:

"It's a Canes thing, you wouldn't understand"


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!

While your post is sincere it's narrow sighted. Nobody is saying don't recruit outside the state, but with the 2013 recriting class just checked and certified in, when it's Miami recruiting class and ratio is something like 72% out-of-towners and round 28% Florida born players, are yall saying now that that's the blue-print. Take away lil ray ad it's 80/20 the wrong way.

What Miami recruiting class ever looked like that. Most of the offensive players on this team are home grown, it's not a coincidence that that's the side of the ball that's the most successful on this team.

Also, this just in, another defensive player has been suspeneded. They're trying to purge all the goons off this team. I'm getting tired of goldie turning his back on the players he keeps bringing in.

I thought goldie said when he got here that "he/we recruit to our core values" so if they met the core value requirements coming in, why is it that they now are being bounced out. If dairy queen ivery is not on this d-line come next year, the rest of the d-tackles better start running cross country, cause the fixin t be out their on that field for a minute now.

goldie trying to create more depth issues for his boy oach OH-NO. keep playing yo yo's with the roster, who's next on the goldie hit list. Maybe that's where that other schalorship came from.

I'm starting to understand now why goldie said "we need to change the culture around here" lol, suspending players every week is the new answer now.

westCoastCae, STHU man, you showing your ignnorance, that's the one thing Mimai never really had a problem with is graduating players, that's the one thing that gets over-looked since the 80's. goldie hasn't come in and all of a sudden now we're graduating players, in fact, under goldie, less will probably graduate sice he's kicking and slicing alto of them off the team and guys leaving early bcause him and his ne plan. So again to all the goldie lovers out their, what has goldie done that has improved the football team with 7 & 6 to show for it and the worst defense in UM history and currenly 117th in college right now.

By the way westcoastCane, the University of Miami has always been a Higher Education institution in case you just found out, it didn't just get that way when goldie got here as i seems like most of you are trying to make it be out that way. How about you get goldie & his boy clown 117th some of that higher education in Coral Gables, so they can take a class that'll teach them how to stop opposing offenses, do they have a class for that.

Other Golden casualties according to Gallo

-the economy
-AIDS
-Hurricane Katrina
-clubbing baby seals
-Global warming
-Adam Sandler movies that are actually funny

Calvin you highschool drop out: our athletic grad rate is climbing. Dumba55.

I finished undergrad in 01, grad school in 05, post-doc in 09.

You trying to challenge me? B$tch please...

This football player is the greatest football player in the world. He is rated the #1 player in the universe. Hes so good that god tried to persuade him to commit suicide so he can play for heavens team. Golden has the best meat to stroke so much so that I never think for myself. I simply just trust Golden and every move he makes. Hes earned it. After all, he brought donofrio here. That alone proves he has good judgement. And so what he lied about the scholly limit. Hes making us penn state south and i for one, have always thought we needed more kids from new jersey and nigeria.
Woohoo! Golden is the greatest smartest recruiter ever in the history of athletics anywhere!!!!!

Westcoast,
Actually Golden isnt graduating more players than Randy did. Randy had the top 5 highest APR of any coach when he was here. Probably shouldve spent more time teaching our lbs how to cover te curl routes lol. But the facts are the facts.

Look, i'm not into that back & forth sisy type argument you trying to have. Stick to your original cry baby complaint when you said "goldie wants guys to win at football (6 & 6, than 7 & 6, lots of wining) and in the classroom"

This insinuation that guys just started winning in the classroom since goldie got here, go wipe your chin off man, your flameness for goldie is starting to show to much. People want to give goldie credit for everything is except those 2 football records he just compiled in 2 years. This guy comes in and makes double what randy shannon made but only has 2 more wins to show for it, but yet everyday you guys keep guzzlin down this ans chicken over that.

goldie just got here yesterday, but guys like luke, ice harris, lockette, and the majority of highschool coaches in Miami been here thru all the national championship years at Miami and they'll be here after goldie is gone, so who's foolish enuff to think goldie knows what he's doing down here when goldie can't produce where he won a championship nowhere before coming here. He's not some championship coach, he thinks he knows how to get UM to one, but do you really believe come next year this defense is going to that much better.

No gionni paul, no thomas finnie, more than likely no ej44 or dequan ivery, and the list will grow. Not only is al golden not recruiting Miami/Florida players, when he does get them at UM, he's kicking them off the team. So what difference does it make. mario cristobal and james coley might be able to help save em, i have no loyalty or allegiance to goldie, he eans nothing to me, i don't know him, but i see his turn-coat moves, whether they're coming from or not, he's the face out front.

Why is it that the majority of the players having problems on this team are from the defensive side of the bal genius.

Just out of curiosity, how many titles did Shannon win with all the Florida kids? So having a team full of Florida kids doesn't necessarily mean championship.. imagine that...

"No gionni paul, no thomas finnie, more than likely no ej44 or dequan ivery, and the list will grow. Not only is al golden not recruiting Miami/Florida players, when he does get them at UM, he's kicking them off the team"

So if these guys weren't from Florida, you'd be fine with them getting kicked off? If kids don't want to get kicked off the team, why don't they just..i don't know...stop breaking the rules...

You guys are so doom and gloom.. so there was one year where not a lot of Florida kids picked Miami. Boo hoo... Man, would have hated to be around you during the Y2k and end of world talk...

Ok, Mr Football in Tennessee in 2011 and 2012...

During his high school career in Tennessee, Elder produced 6351 yards and 84 touchdowns. He helped lead his team to three consecutive state titles and ran for 217 yards and three touchdowns in this past season's championship game. He was Tennessee's Mr. Football in 2011 and 2012.

He also led his basketball team to state titles as a sophomore and junior and is averaging 21 points per game this season


Cane in cali, i don't expect you to understand my man but it's common sense. Almost every college recruiting classes, the majority of them are from that state that their college is in, that part is not hard to figure out. But when you're at a school where it's the envy of most of college football and the standard of how football should be played and your recruiting class is basically around 72/28 the other way if you don't see that as a problem no need in talking to you.

The argument about "how many championships did shannon win with FLorida kids" is a joke and you know it. Was it the Florida kids that went 3 & 1 in 2009 and won 9 games in a year when the starting qb had to have surgery on his throwing hand but still played every game. Was it the Florida kids who brought the excitement back to Miami and the UM fan base, only idiots and those who don't know enuff about football keep harping on that 2008 class as being a failure, lol.

Who ranked that class #1 in the nation, a class that had nothing but a bunch of widereceivers and linebackers but yet somehow that was the #1 recruiting class in the nation, did shannon say that or did somebody else say that who never played football. If these recruiting sites were that right, their would be no need in playing games, let'sjust go by what they say than.

THAT WAS NOT MY POST UP THERE FELLAS.. THE #1 PLAYER IN THE WORLD enuff BS FELLAS

2. Ratio golden said was still More FL, and the 01 team was like 55-60 FL 40% out of state.

3. TALENT WAS DOWN IN SO FLA THIS YR> Did we lose some, yes, but matt thomas was the only 5 star in the 3 county area correct??? oh, collins on scout.com got 5 but averaged 4.

4. TALENT IS UP NEXT YR. WE ALREADY HAVE 2 LOCAL COMMITTS> Top OL from Miami Central and the best (top 3) WR IN PALM BEACH RUDOLPH HAVE COMMITED>......

If those guys that are getting kicked off and suspended were not from Florida i wouldn't matter to me unless they were productive. I was born and raised in Miami, born at Jackson Memorial Hospital, the only football players i have faith in are the ones i know, if an outsider comes in and proves he can be trusted and dependable on that football field like the guys we grew up with, he'll have earned his stripes, until than, we don't believe people in different parts of Miami and other parts of Florida are better than us, let alone some out-of-towners.

In fact, we're th ones that force the out-of-towners to elevate their games by having to play hader to prove that they actually belong on the same field with us. That's our mindset, always has been always will be.

goldie hs admitted he's only been here for 2 years, but that don't excuse his lies though, but we'll see from here on out how tings pan out. ej44 is not from Miami, do i want that man kicked off the team, heck nor jontavious carter but that looks like where those 2 guys are headed.

You gotta understand what's at play here, something is going on at UM that' not rght and it's obvious for those of us who grew up down here, it won't escape us. TThey're either going to force goldie to come clean or tthe Truth is going to come out one way or another. People mad at ice for going public with what happened, ice did right, now UM knows what's coming if they do that type of sneaky crap again. Why did the troll/president have to make a phone call to ice & the family that didn't make a difference anyway.

People like to root for Miami but some of us know how what other root for got that way, alot of people don't and have no clue.

dom, you keep missing the point, people in Miami don't go by star rankings, nobody cared whether matthew thomas or alex collins were rated "so called" 5 star players. Ask your self what's the difference between a 5 star and 4 star and 3 star players. It's th fact that you letting guys get away from schools that have been Miami schools. Ask yourself when is the last time you seen a kid from Northwestern go to bama. Probably the last great player to come from Miami and go to bama was the late Great DERRICK THOMAS!

It'something that rarely happens or to see tht many Miami guys going to louisville or alot of Miami guys now going to the gaytors. If you take all the best players from Miami off of those 3 schools alone and put them at UM it would be a different ball game right now. To many people looking at the stars and are not looking at the things like football i.q. and cohesiveness.

When you see Miami guys that leave Miami and go elsewhere, alot of them are the best players for those college teams, not just some guy on the team.

goldie went out and was forced to pay 500K to james coley to be the oc here, most of that 500k is based off of his recruitng acumen alone, as an oc, what history does he have as one to be able to demand tha type of money right now to call plays. Recognize what's going on here right now in Miami.

Bottom line, we are adding stud athletes across the board. This Lockley kid last night rated the 23rd best player in Virginia, Corn is the 5th best player overall in tennesse, we got the top 2 of 3 players in New Jersey, ok, we got the top 2 nigerian kids, but 1 is #20 on rivals prep 25 the other is #77 on espn juco 100 AND IS PLAYING DT AT THE U.
#1 Juco TE
#1 FB IN NATION
#1 and #2 DBs in So Fla Burns and Carter
#1 WR IN SO FLA AND #3 in nation

I mean, Bash all U want, but WE ARE LOADED

No more scholarships?

I'm glad this kid is part of the team.

Now explain to me why we are not using scholarships on DTs and we added another out of state kid. State of Miami?

I'm trusting Golden, but don't win the ACC I'm going to gas up my air writing plane.

Well, if u think back, Ed Reed, Dorsey, Shockey, Dj Williams, I mean, we always recruited nationally.
So Fla was down in talent ths yr, face it, we didnt have alot of high 5 and 4 star guys. We got some of the best in burns,carter,coley etc but next yr you will see alot more. 2 committs already from so fla

So Calvin, Randy Shannon had the #1 ESPN Recruiting class with 7, I repeat 7 kids from Northwestern HS in FLORIDA(305)and what happened?

Wait for it....wait for it....HE SUCKED AND GOT FIRED!!!

So why in the hell does it matter where a kid is recruited from you ignorant jacka*s!!!!

MY NAME IS CALVIN AND I AM STUPID

These boys aint no joke y'all

Westcoastcane,
Don't bother responding to the All-knowing Calvin. He is the biggest bag-o-douche on here. He has all the answers but no resume. He is a Randy Shannon apologist and hates whitey.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Dude, these comments are absurd, so are the commenters. The same people hating on elder were the same people hating on EJ44 when we gave the little known 3 star LB fr GA a scholly based on what AH saw as talent. Back then we were wasting a scholly on him - now our defense can't live without him?? Recruiting us an imperfect science. It will never be what it was as far as getting all the 'state of Miami' kids. I love this team and everyone talks about the U coming back when the truth is the real fans never left.

EVERYONE SEEMS TO THINK THAT BECAUSE OUR DEFENSE WAS GARBAGE THIS PAST YEAR IT WILL BE GARBAGE THIS YEAR! I FEEL DIFFERENTLY, MY CONCERN IS DONNO AND FRANKIE COACHING. FOOTBALL PLAYERS MAKE THEIR BIGGEST IMPROVEMENT FROM THEIR FRESHMEN AND JUNIOR YEARS AND WITH GOOD COACHING THEY DEVELOP AT A MUCH FASTER PACE. GOLDEN IS DOING A FINE JOB OF STOCK PILING DEPTH ON THIS CANE ROSTER,ESPECIALLY ON OFFENSE,HOWEVER THE PROBLEM IS NOT KEEPING OR ATTENDING TO THE PLAYERS ON DEFENSE AND LEAVING THEM INTO THE HANDS OF THE 2 STOOGES(DONNO&FRANKIE) THIS IS WHY MOST OF THE TEAM PROBLEMS COME FROM THE DEFENSIVE SIDE. PLAYING DEFENSE THIS YEAR HAS TO BECOME FUN AGAIN FOR THE PLAYERS AND THE ONLY WAY THAT HAPPENS IS TO HAVE SYSTEM THAT ALLOW THESE GUYS TO USE SPEED AND QUICKNESS. THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE SACKS AND MAN/MAN COVERAGES,MORE BLITZES FROM ALL OVER,ALLOW THESE GUYS TO DOMINATE STOP SITTING BACK AND GIVING AWAY 10YDS AND PLAYING TO NOT GET BEAT AND STILL GETS BEAT WITH DOUBLE MOVES!! FIND YOUR 4 BEST PASS RUSHERS AND GET THEM ON THE FIELD AND STOP TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT WEEK AFTER WEEK THAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH FRANKLIN HE HAS NO IDEA HOW TO TEACH DL PASS RUSHING MOVES TO PUSH THE POCKET. THE RESULTS IS TERRIBLE QB THROW FOR 300-400 YARDS AGAINST THE U AND LOOK GREAT. FORGET BEING A YOUNG PLAYER! I JUST WATCHED A GAME FROM LAST SEASON AND I WATCHED THE DL TO SEE WHY NO PASS RUSH! THE ANSWER IS THEY HAVE NO PASS RUSH MOVES AND THEY ALWAYS GET STOPPED ON THE LINE NOT CHARGING FORWARD AT ALL! THIS IS FRANKLIN JOB TO NOTICE THIS AND TO FIX. IF CANES PASS RUSH CAN GENERATE 40 PLUS SACKS THIS YEAR THEY WIN 10-12 GAMES. SACKS PRODUCE INTERCEPTIONS AND FUMBLES, NOT TO MENTION LOSS YARDAGE. THIS WILL IMPROVE GREATLY FROM 117TH . GO CANES 2013 ACC CHAMPS!!

I just lost some IQ reading these retards' comments. Unbelievable the coaching wanna be's in here that haven't played a down of football. You're probably one of those kids in high school the trainers takes your helmet away because I just busted my facemask off on the field. BTW, thanks for your helmet. Us real ballers need it more than you. Lmao!

Posted by: Dom | February 13, 2013 at 07:06 PM

Oh come on Dom. Th kid just isn't any good. Just ask all the football experts in here. I mean, they actually think Kirkland wanted to come here. They also think a rival, MT6, wanted to come here too. Uh no. They played us to get an extra hat on the table. See, you commit to Miami, other $chools come calling. ;-)

First Corn is a two time Mr Tennessee player of the year. Signed and will be a cover corner and kickoff returner from day one. He will turn out to be a top three in this class. Cool cat you are so far off. Jimmy and Al talk all the time. Coach snelly ( my fiend) was an accident that started the good years. No blueprint is more identical to JJ than what Coach is doing now.

Good job Golden!!!

they mysterious scholarships have appeared, lol

"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."

but not for you denver kirkland....welcome cornelius elder and ryheem lockley....

Gallo you really need to learn by reading. One guy is playing bb, could be a bb scholarship being used. Another is for next year.
And who cares since maybe the school knows something about the NCAA we don't.
All adds up that you are as they said in Hunt for Red October an " arrogant ass".

It's really amusing to see how STUPID Gallo/Calvin are when it comes to football knowledge. This kid from Tenn has more yards than MOST in the COUNTRY have EVER had and his scoring tds is off the charts. So what if he's 5-10 and 170, he'll put on some weight, and if you can't catch him how're you going to tackle him.

NEITHER one of you actually READ the entire articles either, and only comment on parts of a story, that shows your ADD in full swing. Better take your meds or STFU until you actually COMPREHEND football. By the way Calvin, the 80's are waaaay gone. If you were a coach, your WHOLE team would be in jail, lol.

so what...Ill tell you so what...giovanni bernard the acc RB leader is 5'10" 205 this guy will get crushed...what a waste....

calvin....the bigger question is why are there so many relationship problems with this team....have to form committee of players to bridge mistrust...I never seen this with UM football....

It dosnt matter...golden will not last...he whole city of talented high schools have risen up against him.....dnofrio will sink goden anyway....mario/coley/barrow can only do so much to fix things

hire butch and just start over....UM was 7-6...who cares, it cant get any worse....I am sure butch wont go less than 7-6...so why not?

U guys don't know anything...Now AG will have an excuse for his buddy to suck again this year and say he doesn't have enough D personnel..Meanwhile D corch's bank account keeps growing while Miami's D sucks..

why do people keep on saying kirland is a DT, he's an o lineman

We have DT's on the roster? OK, so no excuses this season with that defense. I don't want to see UF racking up yards in us in Sept.

I am a Miami fan living for Nashville for the last 4 years and have watched Elder play on tv for 3 years. This kid is amazing. When his team played Jalen Ramsey's (Florida State 5 star recruit), he was always the star in those games. This kid was far and away always the best talent on the field. Huge pick up for both Football and Basketball! Be excited about this one!

This kid Cornelius Elder is a very good player and a great sign by the U at the RB position. Cornelius Elder and Augustus(Gus) Edwards are very similar to what I see in Wilder and Freeman at FSU and I’m impressed more in what I see in Edwards than I see in Wilder. Adding these two players to our RB position to an offense which is our strength is a very good thing. You scheme to put players in position to succeed. AG didn’t have a magic wand to make a DT want to come to the U, let alone an impact DT. Reaching for a DT makes no since... Some of you are playing this recruiting thing as if it’s a video game; it's not. You play the cards you are dealt!
Hmmm Let's see... Sign an instant playmaker on offense like Elder verses reaching for and signing a DT? Simply makes "No" since; if the talent available doesn't exceed the talent already on the team. We have some developmental DT's that will be major contributors for 3-4 years like Jacoby Briscoe, Dequan Ivery, and Earl Monroe... I see solid play from the D-line position in 13’; maybe nothing spectacular but a C+ will be a great improvement over last year’s F.

coach golden comes into south florida with the possibilty of a DEATH PENALTY looming over every move he made, and the man stayed solid and hummble teaching the out-of-control players on his roster to be men, the right way.....the second year he is in south florida, he leads the team to a possible title game match(but self impossed bans), and he still brings in a DOZEN ESPN TOP 150 players...why are the comments on this page about his player decisions, because we should trust his judgement by now....he has made us relavent again....he cleaned up the roster and has players who academicly, athleticly, and mentaly want to be in south florida.....the NCAA is close to dropping the alligations against miami, stating that the lengths coach golden and the school have went to set a precidence for schools handling matters themself....if your a canes fan, stand up RIGHT NOW and give a standing ovation to AL GOLDEN
