« Canes' 2013 National Signing Day checklist | Main | Broward's top player WR Stacy Coley picks the Hurricanes over FSU, USF »

Canes land RB Edwards, but miss out on Booker T.'s Matthew Thomas, Denver Kirkland

Al Golden was hoping for a big finish on National Signing Day.

So far, it hasn't panned out that way for the University of Miami -- even though the Hurricanes' biggest recruiting battles are happening right in their backyard.

Booker T. Washington All-American linebacker Matthew Thomas, the top player in Miami-Dade County and a consensus five-star recruit, picked Florida State over Miami, USC and Georgia Wednesday morning, a decision announced in front of a national cable TV audience on ESPNU, family, friends, coaches and teammates in the school auditorium.

Five minutes later, All-American offensive lineman and teammate Denver Kirkland announced he was going to Arkanas and passing on UM, which six days prior appeared to be the leader for his services before they pulled his scholarship following the team's state championship parade through Overtown. Two days later, UM invited Kirkland and his mother down to campus to smooth things over and put the scholarship offer back on the table. But it apparently wasn't enough to divert him away from Tallahassee.

Miami, which swayed offensive coordinator James Coley away from FSU last month, was hoping Coley might provide some help in the important recruiting battle. Coley had been Kirkland's and Thomas' prime recruiter for the Seminoles. But FSU and Arkansas -- where former UM coach Randy Shannon is now an assistant -- got the last laughs in the end.

Thomas (6-3 1/2, 210) produced 70 tackles, 10 sacks and two blocked field goals for the Tornadoes en route to All-Dade and All-State First Team honors. Kirkland (6-3, 333) anchored an offense that averaged 416 yards and 49 points a game on its way to a 13-1 record and the Class 4A state championship.

Miami came into the day in the running for seven highly-touted prospects.

Earlier in the morning, the Canes got some good news when Staten Island Tottenville (N.Y.) running back Augustus Edwards, ranked the No. 1 fullback in the nation by Rivals.com, announced he had picked Miami over Florida State.

Edwards, a 6-1, 222-pound three-star prospect according to Rivals, was previously a Syracuse commitment. He visited UM recently and came away impressed. He ran for 868 yards and 10 touchdowns on 107 attempts this past season for Tottenville. He also produced 11 tackles and three sacks on defense.

Tailback was a position of need for UM, which lost out South Plantation blue-chip running back Alex Collins when he committed to Arkansas on Monday. Although the Hurricanes are heading into the 2013 season with Atlantic Coast Freshman of the Year Duke Johnson as the star tailback UM had just three other scholarship running backs on the roster. The Canes are hoping Edwards can provide depth along with senior Eduardo Clements (5-9, 192), redshirt sophomore Dallas Crawford (5-10, 190) and redshirt freshman Danny Dillard (6-2, 225).

About an hour after Edwards' announcement Wednesday, UM lost out on Port St. Lucie Centennial four-star defensive tackle Jaynard Bostwick (6-4, 280). Rated the 286th best prospect in the country regardless of position, Bostwick chose Florida over Miami and Alabama. Bostwick is the cousin of UM linebacker Thurston Armbrister. He tallied 65 tackles and two sacks his senior season.

The Hurricanes have been in dire need of an upgrade at defensive tackle. UM finished 112th in run defense last season out of 120 Football Bowl Subdivision programs, allowing 217.92 yards per game. Tuesday, three-star Navarro junior college (Corsicana, Tex.) defensive tackle Terrell Brooks (6-4, 300) passed on the Canes to sign with Baylor.

How much has the two-year long NCAA investigation hurt Miami's class this year? ESPN recruiting analyst Corey Long said he doesn't think it "plays as much of a factor on a day-to-day basis" and some people think.

"I just think they hit on some and missed on some," Long said. 'I'm just really surprised Miami didn't focus more on defensive linemen. Maybe the NCAA forced them to keep their numbers down so they kind of have to pick and choose where they go. But I would have expected more defensive lineman."

UM is still in the running for three more highly-touted prospects -- including one defensive tackle.

The top player in Broward County Oakland Park Northeast receiver Stacy Coley (6-1, 175) is set to announce his decision at 11:05 a.m. on ESPNU. His coach, former UM running back Donnell Bennett, said Coley was choosing between Miami, Florida State and South Florida. Coley, rated the 13th best receiver in the country by Rivals.com, caught 29 passes for 513 yards and 10 TDs his senior season en route to All-Dade First Team honors.

Delray Beach Atlantic defensive tackle Keith Bryant, an Under-Armour All-American and four-star recruit, will announce his college choice at 1:45 p.m. on ESPNU. Bryant (6-1 1/2, 302) was a UM commitment but pulled back on it and has since flirted with South Carolina and Florida State.

Miramar High four-star recruit and U.S. Army All-American linebacker Jermaine Grace, once thought to be a strong UM-lean, will choose between the Hurricanes and Louisville at 2 p.m. on ESPNU. Grace (6-1, 195) racked up 115 tackles, four sacks and two interceptions his senior season.

The Hurricanes came into National Signing Day with 14 commitments as part of its class including five early enrollees (four-star JUCO tight end Beau Sandland out of California; three-star tight end Standish Dobard from New Orleans; three-star pass rushing specialist Alex Figueroa out of Virginia; three-star lineman Hunter Knighton from New Jersey; Three-star offensive tackle Sunny Odogwu from prep school in Virginia).

Of the remaining nine non-binding commitments who were supposed to fax over signed national letters of intent, the school had announced the arrival of seven of them on Twitter as of 9:45 a.m.

Those were: Miami Northwestern All-American cornerback Artie Burns; All-American defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad of New Jersey's Don Bosco Prep; Four-star quarterback of the future Kevin Olsen; Miami Southridge four-star safety Jamal Carter; Cincinnati Moeller three-star offensive tackle Alex Gall; Lake Mary Prep athlete Ray Lewis III, whose father is former Hurricane and recent Super Bowl winner and Butler Community College (Kan.) three-star defensive tackle Ufomba Kamalu.

Those that haven't arrived yet: California JUCO three-star pass rushing specialist Devante Bond and Virginia three-star athlete Ryheem Lockley.

National recruiting analyst JC Shurburtt of 247Sports.com, who ranked UM's class 27th coming into Wednesday, said while the Canes needed to do better in their own backyard Golden and his staff still have put together a solid class.

"They did go get a quality player out of New Orleans in [tight end] Standish Dobard," Shurburtt said. "I like Hunter Knighton a lot. I think Sunny Odogwu is going to be a very good player. Alex Figueroa is a guy I saw in a camp who I thought had tremendous physical upside. Sandland is the top JUCO tight end in the country.

"Kevin Olsen is the perfect quarterback to go in there and distribute the ball to speedy playmakers like Miami always had. They really haven't had a quarterback with his type of upside in quite awhile.

"But then you look and you've got Artie Burns and Jamal Carter holding down the fort as the only South Florida kids and Ray Lewis III, a legacy kid, being the third kid from Florida. If you are Miami you like to see more guys from South Florida."

Charles Fishbein of EliteScoutingServices.com said he thinks the best player in UM's class is Muhammad.

"He's fills a major position of need," said Fishbein, who pointed out UM finished 113th in the country with just 13 sacks last season. "He's somebody who could get pressure on the quarterback. He's probably their top player along with Jamal Carter and Artie Burns. They're probably the most elite of their class. Artie has the potential to be very good. He has size and speed. He has the physical attributes to be a very good corner. If he works hard he has the potential to play at the next level.

"I think Olsen is the best quarterback they've signed in five, six years. He's got a good arm, can make most of the throws, has been brought up in a football family. In Miami's system they don't need the super physical skills. They just need the guy who can get them the ball. He's going to get them in the right plays, make good throws. He's been trained very well."

UM coach Al Golden will hold a press conference at 4 p.m. Wednesday to discuss the 2013 signing class.

UM's sports information department is hosting a show with UM assistant coaches on HurricaneSports.com and ESPN3 throughout the morning. The show concludes at 12:30 p.m.

UM is hosting a Fan Signing Day party at Buffalo Wild Wings in Sunset Place (across US-1 from the UM campus) from 5 to 7 p.m.

NCAA looming sanctions,,,wTF,,,when did maimi lose prospect to Missippii, Baylor, arkansas,,,i can understand to florida, florida state, lsu, and alabama,,,the NCAA need to be sue,,hard as heck to recruit on a even playing fieldl,,but when opposing coaches keep dangling those imposing sanctions,,who can go up agianst that,,,these kids have the right to pick who they want to play for,,,BUT HERE AND MINES WE ARE ALL ABOUT THE U! Dont come back crying to the U when things dont work out in RACIST MISSISSPPIT AND FAYETVILLE ARkansas,,and saying my mom cant affort a plane ticket to the game!

Hey Dom try to have a lucid moment. Did you look at our stats vs the run. I dont think more DB's will fix that. NO DT's !!!! I love UM. Grad from 83'. How can you go into recruiting knowing you need a postion (DT) & get shut out!!! Quantity @ DT doesnt mean Quality! 2 years running shut no quality @ this position. Hopefully I'll eat my words and some DT will sign with us.

I hope ice harris gets run over

********
If its that serious, you might want to seek help.. Al pulled Kirkland's scholly, but you're mad @ Harris? Weird!

I live practically next door to Wharton High in Tampa. Talked to Hargreves the DB going to FLA. He said many of the defensive guys he talked to at the major events were talking Shnitz about how Miami's DC couldn't coach and that some of the players told them that. So word is out on D'Nofrio.

You really don't know your history dude. When we won our 5 titles they were south florida boys? All of them? Really?

Hmmmm, better check with the following guys just to name a few:

- Bernie Kosar;
- Glen Dennison;
- Vinny;
- Greg Mark;
- Jerome Brown (not south florida)
- Greg Mark;
- Danny Stubbs;
- Jesse Armstead;
- Russel Maryland;
- Ken Dorsey;
- Jeremy Shockey;
- Clinton Portis;
- Ed Reed.

I could go on but you get the picture. It is about developing talent, not mindlessly regurgitating "south florida" ad nauseum. Remember the NW class of 2008?

Bama isn't full of South Florida boys and they seem to have done ok the last few years, no?

@ Jim Gallo and those to backs didnt share the backfield with anybody if they did they still got more carries than Duke idiot go troll somewhere fool

dbc: face it..today is gonna end bad....so golden gets paid, thats not important...UM has the money....this program right now needs a shot in the arm...it will recover.....

who believes golden can take us to the bcs? I dont....you cant blame any of this on snactions because UM has not been sanction yet....this is a trust issue....the tie/cane walk was show...you are now seeing what golden/dnfrio are really like....all that TMZ was ALL golden....why are we so committed to him.....we have the greatest recruiter in UM history that took UM from sanctions to 11-1 avalible RIGHT NOW who said he wants to coach ncaa just last week....

make the f...king move and be done with it

Fellow Caners, I understand the frustration but should us as fans not be happy with our new UM players?

Golden is bringing back 20 out of 22 starters. We have guys like EJ, Denzel, Duke, Bush, Morris and we care more about 2013 kids? Golden in 2 years managed to shore up our secondary, TE, QB, WR's and continues with the OL.

He brought in Coley and Cristobal for the future yet I feel like you guys think they were supposed to perform miracles for 2013.

Do we need more defensive help? Of course we do. But don't go saying "Fire Golden" or "wow we can't even recruit Miami" because last year everybody LOVED Golden for getting all home guys.

We needed a top TE, we got 2 of them. We got the best QB in NJ and the best DE in NJ. I feel more confident in this staff than I have in years.

Sorry to break it to you guys but we aren't the best school in Florida....YET. Winning will get the guys that we want and we haven't done that for YEARS

Um please do go on. There arent more than that.. and thats one team. Lol. Schnelly. Jimmy? Erickson? They put up a fence and sprinkled in kids from nola and ca. THEY DIDNT BASE THEIR RECRUITING ON NJ. Lol. Kids just dont know the facts. Its about sfla first then the nation. If you dont get that then you know miami as well as golden. Haha.

willie that is not me.....just remeber I all for golden to exit....any hint of hes doing a good job is fake gallo,,,,,lol too funny but entertaining

This class is going to kill us in a few years. We needed to hit on at the very least 6 or 7 of the uncommitted local kids. It's just to hard to overcome such a dud class for overall depth over a 4 year cycle.

D'Onofrio is obviously scaring recruits away as Tampa Cane said. I played high school football and have above average intelligence and feel that this shouldn't qualify me to have anywhere near the football IQ that D'Onofrio has but I honestly feel like I might know more. For instance, against NC State if you give the receivers a 10 yard cushion and they throw slant after slant after slant I would possibly adjust before the 4th quarter.....as in a few plays. My left nut can coach better than that guy. Not to mention he can't recruit for sh@#!!!!

How large is this Class for the 'Canes?

How long can we explain away sanctions from the NCAA?

How many athletes will be affected in the scholies that will be thrown down?
All valid questions that may have affected our impact.

After last years large Class this one would be affected indirectly.

The above factors had a lot to do with our position right now.

JUCO heavy this year..How many JUCO's last year?

Admitted, that we had miscommunication with Kirkland, but that I disagree was not a gamechanger. Coach C knew that he was Ark. bound and there was no need to pursue him.

Collins replaced by Edwards makes sense, but Muhammed was a very good get.
Players (especially with the Coaching lineup at the 'U') coming directly from S. Florida, and playing in their backyard would be great, but if your mindset is not commited to being a 'Cane, then develop elsewhere.

How many top players have selected FSU and how many Championships have they won in the last 5 years?..Great Classes but nothing...Jumbo get's em, but can he Coach em?..

We will have a decent Class, not earthshattering, but I know that each player who signs a letter of Intent wants to be a 'Cane and will buy into the mentality of work, legay, and commitment to the 'U'.

Go 'Canes

Well gang until the NCAA BS is off us TOTALLY, and we start WINNING, this is what to expect. This season by all accounts should be a good one, and could very well make the kids who didnt' commit to us wish they did. We can still land Coley and Grace, and maybe Bryant.

Just a reminder...

More than a handful of the players that elected to go elsewhere will never even see the field.

If any fan base should know that this recruiting garbage is overranked it should be us Canes fans after having the #1 ranked recruiting class a few years back and this never translated to the field.

Think Boise State...how much have you heard about their great recruiting classes over the years. That's right...zip!...nada! The Canes currently have twice the talent of Boise and this year's recruiting class will stretch that lead...and with our coaching and a favorable resolution to the NCAA matter means championship football is not too far in the future

It comes down to the program and coaching. If you have the right coaching, and we do, players that don't have multiple stars by their names will develop into big time college players.

Finally, ignore the agitators such as Gallo, the moron with the numerous screen names who is posting as a Gator, Nole and Hog, etc. Their posts are those of people who need serious help and are Canes wannabees.

The Canes need to get Ray Lewis to coach. I bet he could get every player in Florida to commit in one sitting.

I still think qb play and d-fensive stops in 2013 are most important to canes to win National Title..If we dont get bowl ban we will meet Ohio State in National Championship...write it down

Posted by: youwillseedonofriooutcoached | February 06, 2013 at 10:33 AM

That was from one teamn? Are you kidding? How old are you? Those are players from each of the 5 championship teams.

There are plenty others:

- Lamar Thomas;
- Stephen McGuire;
- Wesley Carroll

Do I need to keep pounding you? And you have yet to acknowledge or answer the issues with the 2008 class. All So. FL boys and what? What happened?

You need some learnin', green pea.

why ignore a top recruit and his family when they come on an official visit,,,why announced publicly that you pull a scholarship from another top recruit,,,Miami is a bit metro area, but when it comes to football,,its a tightly knit group,,,golden and his staff is pissing some people off down there, something gotta be fixed fore this come an every year situation,,sorry, we cant lose to ARKANSAS and OLE MISs, i dont care who there coaches are!

#1 Rb edwards Domasse ?

Nice typical Delusional Cane spin.

Agustus Edwards is NATIONALLY UNRANKED and a BLOCKING Fullback that NOBODY recruited as a Runningback.

Matthew Thomas ----The U
Alex Collins---The U
Jordan Cunningham--The U
Jermaine Grace--The U
Stacy Coley===The u
Jaynard Bostwick--The U
JUCO DT--THE U
Keith Bryant)prima Donna-- THE U

How's that working out for U NostraDomasse ?

randy shannon got about the same amount of recruits from Miami than goldie, lol. Like i said, this is the last year for goldie and his croonies. Who in the hell has jethro franklin coaches to prominence. They keep trying to give that man credit for russel maryland when he was in greenbay at the end of his career, lol. jethro is a westcoast type of coach and if we don't get a widereceiver commitment, it'll be because brennan carroll means nothing to recruits, just a name, asn't coached anybody worth any significance, i don't want to hear about fred davis.

This recruiting class doesn't surprise me, when you have the 117th ranked defense, what recruit in their right mind is going to come here unless they are like duke johnson and we all know alot of people are not going to be like him. The hand writing was on the wall once those Nigerians started committing.

For all of those who want to keep trying to defend goldie and his boy 117th, oach OH-NO, let this recruiting serve as a lessono to you, lol. The sooner he's gone the better off we'll be, and if it takes firing goldie for that 117th inept to be gone, than i'm all in. jedd fisch made us look good last year, jedd is not here now, and goldie had no choice but to put his trust in hiring coley, lol, if we don't move the chains come next year, it's going to be a long season.

Nobody wants to play 10 an 15 yards off the line, now watch how much better thomas finnie looks at BETHUNE COOKMAN than he did here. Our defense is to soft no matter who comes here and all the defensive coaches at other Florida colleges are luvin the fact that we have 117th OH-NO and jethro. goldie getting rid of john lovett,crime dog & coach petri were some of his worst moves.

Nobody wants to play in this cowards scheme.

Jim. I ll bet ya Golden finishes with a flurry. ITS 945 AM. Hes gonna flip some kids also

Posted by: Dom | February 06, 2013 at 09:44 AM


Are []_[] wearing a straight jacket and in a padded room ?

Gary, Komalu is #77 juco 100 is a DT, and Hunter Knighton on rivals said hes moved to DT....hes a top 30 player in Nj and high 3 star guy........

We are goin to b fine.

Son. If you think for a moment that national recruiting is how miami wins ships. You need to stop pissing on your balls and root for someone else. Nj sucks. Ny sucks. If you dont get kids from miami youre not the coach for miami. Alabama gets fla recruits but most of then are fron their state. Thats what we need to do. You dont have a clue. Recruit south florida. Leave the slow northeast kids to the garbage big 10 programs. Miami will never win with donofrio. Also get your own handle kid.

Al hold up for one second!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are in agreement therefore that the 'U' should not be able to check a player as "in the fold" prior to NSD by the Coaches calling on them, and they have the OPTION of dictating to the 'U'
Are you kidding me...if you cannot answer yes or no to a question then we have the OPTION to move on just as you do...The fact that this went public is a farce since this happens everyday...
Manny and the Herald built their story around this as if it was a MAJOR event..It was not..He was Arkansas bound and we pulled the plug..
Of course the Gables is high profile, and the College, and legacy are High Profile,but that does not predicate that Coach G and his staff are doing anything different, than other Coaches, working with high school players.

As far as pissing some people off how many schools and Coaches can you name...1.or are you privy to more data.

So think before writing what you don't have, and that is the true facts behind the picture.
Go 'Canes

Espn has us ranked #23 now with the Edwards pick up. They grade on quality and not add up pts like Rivals.

Give Golden Time..........

When they interviewed golden they asked him about the sanctions and he answered them accordingly. I beleive the portis situation, Paul and the Kirkland situations were all negative things that we could not overcome when it came to Thomas. We need Paul more than ever now. golden could have loss some momentum as far as recruiting goes and again I think he is an average coach at best. Maybe we can get coley.

Dom, your an idiot. Even with FSU? Gee how did Al the Tie do. Missed on Thomas, missed on Kirkland, missed on Bostwick, got a FB from NY good not great will run for 200 yards in his career. Looks like the U will get Coley that is a plus. But the U clearly under Al has lost its South Florida base, they can still recruit it but they won't ever own it..... Although the NCAA stuff hurts it pals in comparision to what the kids see. What hurts the U is a fan base that does not go to games...Hell U had less then 20,000 in 4 of their games. texas HS draw better. Go to some games. Maybe that will get the local kids back. Stop living off the 80's & 90's. Oh and FSU lost 6 coaches; No OC, and Jimbo still held the class together. THE U had a class equal to NCS more or less. Welcome to your world. Want to help no sell out needed get 50,000 a game to go see your boys play Duke. That is support

You will see, more than half that 2001 team was from out of state. Ed Reed, LA, Shockey OKla, Dorsey, CA, Dj Williams, CA, Should I keep going?

What a disgraceful recruiting job by al and the so called recruiting dream team. Randy Shannon is kicking are butts. Good job al and crew we put that fence around the southern hemisphere, screws south Florida. These guys are clowns I'm tired of being embarrassed about being a fan but it seems every week it just gets worse. They couldn't get any the rbs or dline players in their backyard. This is one of the worse days to be a cane fan but don't worry I'm sure al and company can screw something else up.

Coley announcing NOW FOR U

Ok Golden tighten up. I called that one.

A ray of sunshine Coley to the "U" over FSU.

Stacy Coley to the U!

GOOD JOB GOLDEN> #4 wide receiver in US, and espn top 50 BABY............OH YEA, #1 rb in NY, #1 WR IN SO FLA, #1 DB's in SO Fla carter and burns

AL PULLED IT OFF BABY............

UM just plain blew it with the BOOKER SCANDAL! Y'al an last Herbert but the proof is in the pudding and UM has lost out on all but a few. Actually there are more out of state signees than Fl and even fewer from the Tri-county area. So say what you will Golden is missing it and how in hell can you piss off Booker 3 days before signing day!
WHAT?

Can Mak alexander shock the world and pick the U??? Edgerrin Jamess school. Hes announcing now.

Al Golden keep working. You are doing a great job. We need guys with character, heart, and want to be a cane. Guys who are willing to leave it all on field practice and game time. That's what real canes are made of and so are champion. 100% in the classroom 100% on the field. Nothing in life is easy. To all recruits are there any canes among U

We need Jermaine Grace at LB, and Keith Bryant at DT. 2 more espn 150 players, and that would make our day...

Lets see Bashers
Add #1 WR in So Fla and ESPN top 50 player
Add #1 Rb in NY
U KNOW AL IS NOT FINISHED

Well alright! Stacy Coley coming to UM! Welcome, Stacey and family!

Our offense continues to strengthen. Great news for the Canes after some disappointing losses this morning. Great to see the SWAG hat!

That is what it is all about to be a 'Cane..Coley's in baby
Coach G and his group will get it done with the young 'Canes.
Go 'Canes

They just interviewed Jimbo Fisher on ESPN-U and he was stunned to lose Coley as Fisher had been telling people he was 80% sure the kid would sign with FSU.

"Alabama gets fla recruits but most of then are fron their state."

I don't get it. Do you need So. Florida kids to win titles or don't you? And check the bios of the 'Bama recruits you ignoramus. Alabama is small state. The majority of their classes are NOT from Alabama. Out of their 22 commits, ONLY 6 are from the state of Alabama. SIX. 6. Comprende, doofus. That is less than 1/3 of their class. You are a complete A-hole.

Facts suck, and so do you, green pea.

Hes consdidered the top deep threat in this class and in the nation. Ranked as #4 wr on espn and #47 overall regardless of position on espn 150.......Another solid recruit

Espn 150- we have the #47, #58,#70,#87 and Dobish #136. 5 espn 150 players not counting Jamal Carter and Beau sandland(#1 juco player).
For a small class, WE ARE LOADED WITH TALENT

Keith Bryant and Jermaine Grace would give us 7 espn 150 players, 8 with Beau Sandland, 9 with #77 Nigerian DT on the JUCO 100.

Oh and Al has had a bad class. U MORONS>....GO TO UR UF AND FSU BLOG. .

They just interviewed Dumbo at FSU and he was almost crying, and Golden came on b4 Coley and acted happy like no big deal...........way to go coach

just saw golden on espu for the first time he looks battered and bruised, the ncaa worked their magic like a charm right at signing day, espn anaylst rod gilmore whom is a lawyer said the ncaa should end the nonsense today and call a end to the investigation as they have embarrassed themselves to the point of no return, other schools have had a field day in the living rooms of these recruits the last two years, but it still has not helped florida and jimbo win the title. attention donna and the entire legal team stop saying you are cooperating with the ncaa and let them know we want it over now and start our legal proceedings.

The ESPN-U panel discussed the incalculable damage that the NCAA investigation has done to the "U".

To a man they agreed that enough is enough and it is way past the time that the NCAA should end this persecution and set the "U" free accepting their self-imposed punishment as time served.

Furthermore, the attorney on the panel said that based on the investigation being compromised by the Perez hiring that the entire investigation has to be viewed as tainted.

hey remember guys alex collins was scared of the sanctions so they didnt take him from us matt thomas was the same way bostwick moms was afraid of her baby boy hanging out o so.beach the only 1 we lost was kirkland but i would take gall from cincinatti hes nasty we got coley he wants to b here the one thing i dnt like is were not recruiting in the muck central fl i would take those players b4 the ones in dade
