UM dual-threat QB commit Alin Edouard wavering, as pro-style QB Brad Kaaya announces his commitment

Hialeah High quarterback Alin Edouard committed to the Hurricanes in February for 2014. Miami has been his lifelong dream school, and Edouard was ecstatic to get the offer.

The offer is still there, according to Edouard and his high school coach, Marc Berman, who said he spoke to a UM assistant coach at least twice Monday. But Edouard, a three-star quarterback rated the 16th best dual-threat QB prospect in the nation, is starting to have his doubts. He said he was offered by former assistant Mario Cristobal, who quickly left UM to join the staff at Alabama. He said new offensive coordinator James Coley had not communicated with him directly even once until Edouard received a private Facebook message from Coley on Monday.

"I'm guessing either they don't really want me or it's just something that happened,'' he said of the lack of communication since February. "It's not the same as it was before.''

Edouard said he is still committed to UM, but is also considering Louisville, where his friend Teddy Bridgewater stars as the starting QB going into his junior year.

The other schools Edouard said he is considering: USF, Syracuse and Tennessee.

Berman told me that Edouard "as of this point is committed and they are committed to him. Alin can do things with his legs that other kids can't. They'll probaby sign two quarterbacks from what I've been told, and that's the way it is around the rest of the country. It's all about competition.''

The Canes are loaded with quarterbacks, and have also offered two-star Malik Rosier of Mobile, Ala., for 2014. For now, besides senior Stephen Morris, there's junior Ryan Williams, redshirt freshmen Gray Crow, Preston Dewey and David Thompson, walk-on freshman Garrison Lassiter and incoming freshman Kevin Olsen.

 Edouard said he is not intimidated at all by competing for the QB job. He is just worried that coaches might try to switch his position to, say, receiver and he is adamant that he stay at quarterback.

  Meanwhile, Brad Kaaya of West Hills (Calif) Chaminade High, proclaimed his commitment to Miami on Monday. Chaminade is in the San Fernando Valley near Los Angeles. Kaaya is a three-star, pro-style prospect. He is 6-4 and 213 pounds, and rated by Rivals.com as the 19th-best  pro-style quarterback prospect.

  Kaaya completed 126 of 186 passes for 1,875 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2012 as a junior for 12-2 Chaminade, which lost the state title game to Serra Gardena. He threw his only two interceptions of the season during that game.

   Edouard completed 64 of 132 passes for 926 yards and nine touchdowns, with nine picks last season. He ran for 559 yards and seven touchdowns.

   "Brad is excited,'' Chaminade coach Ed Croson told me today by phone. "Miami had a different feel, a different flavor, and Brad liked that.''

   Croson said Kaaya also likes the way Coley wants to throw the ball around and the way the offense works. UM kicker Matt Goudis played for Croson, too, and made Kaaya feel comfortable.

    Croson said Kaaya is a great student who "never gets in trouble, works his butt off and has talent. That's the guy you're looking for.''

   One thing is for sure: recruiting can be a brutal process. And it's a long process. You can only imagine how much things might change -- and probably will change -- before signing day 2014.

2013 TMZ will fill the rest of the open spots, lol

as you can see...nobody wants to play defense at UM....another get-rid-of-dnofrio stat

Funny....as per an article on espn....here as an exciting tidbit on the Turds:

{The Gators already have Florida State as an annual nonconference game, and Foley prefers to fill the other open nonconference slots with home games. Florida rarely plays a nonconference game away from home, much less out of state. Indeed, of the future Florida opponents already announced, the only nonconference road game is in Tallahassee.}

"Florida RARELY plays a non-conference game AWAY from home".

Wow.....looky what we got us here....hypocrites they are to the fullest. Ranking on us about not playing LSU with them doing the same thing....hahahahaha....September 7th is coming fools.....NO EXCUSES!!!!!

Shannon casualties - THE REAL LIST

Jacory Harris
Aldarious Johnson - BUST
Tommy Streeter
Ben Jones - Took AGS people to finally get him somewhere
Sean Spence - Would not have torn knee up had he been better developed early on by Randy
Southridge
Clint Hurt
Mark Whipple
Arthur Brown - *****Biggest failure
Thearon Colliar - Booker T kid never developed....BUST
Marcus Forston - NW kid....BUST
Davon Johnson - BUST under Shannon....AG finally gets production and some "return on investment" from schollie
Brandon Marti - BUST - Discipline issue
Cannon Smith
Vaughn Telemack - Never developed early by Shannon...cost him...
Robert Marve - Shannon plays favorites - Discpline issues
Jermaine McKenzie
Adewale Ojomo - broken jaw by walk-on under Shannon...cost him an entire year...hurt our defense that year
Ray Ray Armstrong - Under achiever - troublemaker
Dyron Dye - BUST
Kacy Rodgers - BUST
Storm Johnson -Pothead - Shannon no due dillegence on this kid prior to wasting schollie on him
Chase Ford - BUST - Not sure which game film he was watching

And the list COULD go on.....

we don't need either one of them, we are loaded at quarterback for the next 5 years, are they gonna play over kevin olsen? no! go get some D-linemen and linebackers

Some idiot on here said that running qb's don't win championships. I guess you never watch college football tommy Frazier won two or three, tebow won two, Craig kernel even won one. The dual threat qb is what the college game has turned to. I here people talking about how bad a communicator Shannon was and in most cases they are right. I felt that Shannon needed to improve in that are amongst others. Golden is not the perfect communicator either. I have read at least three direct quotes from golden and he didn't use perfect English. He also sends mixed signals to recruits and players and that is not good communication. Golden is an average at best coach and his record shows it. Golden may look the part but he leaves a lot to be desired in the coaching world. We will find out soon enough what kind of coach he is. I hope he proves me wrong.

tallyCane, they sweat coach goldie like he's won a champonship everywhere he's been. Right now, coach goldie is trying to find his way and he's gettign in his own way by thinking kicking players off the team is going to set an example or a "new culture". I was reading an article today where they were talking about coach edsall up at Mryland, they were saying how randy edsall is a hard-nose coach and how they're not sure how long that approach is going to work up there, lol. The same thing applies here, coach goldie is trying to be a tuff guy by kickign players off the team and trying to use the wrong type of peer pressure methods. That crap don't work here, it's good when you got kids like phillip dorsett, malcom lewis, tracy howard and those guys on the team, but everybody that's getting recruited don't have that, gabe terry's Father is in prison right now, but goldie and this "we're recruiting a different kind of athlete to the University of Miami" mandate/crew keep turning there backs on the very kids that help make this school prominent.

People keep saying the stupidity about "this ain't the 80's/90's, gabe terry's situation is right now, eddie johnson's situation is right now, gionni and several many others are right now situations, people think cause it's 2013, hardtimes don't exist no more or something, lol, stupid.

Whoever it was that tried to compare and contrast teddy bridgewater game against usF and smo17's game against usF, nice try, you forgot to mention that usF had bj daniels in that game, getting first downs and putting up stats, and teddy b still put up 28 points and you also failed to mention he ran for 74 yards on 10 carries. smo17 got way more possesions because usF was down to their 3rd qb so of course smo17 putting up 12 more points it's not hard to see why or how that was done.

It's not about recruiting, it's about are these coaches taking the current players they have and are they making them better. Nobody can question whether art kehoe is doing that, nobody can question whether coach barrow is doing that, right now, every other position coach has a question mark by them.

Coach petri came in and instantly we were ranked in the top 5 in the nation for tackles for loss. But coac hgoldie replaced coach petri with jethro "no sacks" franklin. john lovett's defenses were in the low 20's as the d-co, goldie replaces coach lovett with his boy oach OH-NO and we go to 117th in the nation. We had one of the top secondaries in the nation, coach goldie gets rid of the crime dogg coach mcgriff and brings in coach p.w. now we're hovering around the 90's in pass coverage.

That mac staff defensive philosophy didn't work in the mac, it's obvious it's not working over here. We'll continue to here this year how guys are coming around and getting better only to see duke help us close out there year giving up 45 points to duke.

Until coach goldi stops being a hypocrite, it'll always be "tmz around here". You can't offer a kid a schalorship saying he's a qb recruit, than later on when the new oc comes in and doesn't see that recruit the same as the last guy did, time to be honest and up front with the kid, the worst thing you can do is start promising a kid anything prior to, than once you offer the ship and than things start changing you start ignoring the man. Anyway, this season is the year of the "running out of excuses" year!

Nobody knows what kind of coach AG really is gonna be yet . He has not had a fair shot here yet , to many off field problems , Ncaa , coaches moving on etc. I think this season is his first real opportunity to operate without major restrictions . So I think between now and this time next season we will know if he is the man for the job . Go Canes

Calvin.....enough Luke.......seriously.......Gabe Terry got arrested by campus police in a stairwell......nothing Golden can do bout it.......and if he could......I'm sure he would. Like I said.....80s are over with.......perhaps if there was not an NCAA investigation hanging over us does Golden somehow save Finnie and Paul.

We have a great QB in Morris.....would rather have him then teddy......Morris is a baller in a way better league with a better arm.

he needs to REFLECT on retaining the most talented and recruiting the most talented.....understanding what is REAL is the first step towards championship success.....the discipline issue is NOT REAL....he is not being TRUTHFUL to the problem when he kicks good kids off the team or disciplines them in such a way that it negates future performance

"How much do you let what you wish to be true stand in the way of seeing what is really true"?

wishing that inner city kids will be the text book disciplined team is not TRUE.....he will fail

Why does cAlvin keep lying? Golden doesn't have any "we're recruiting a different type of athlete" mandate. Dude, stop making stuff up. I went to college with a kid who's brother is a producer at ESPN. I asked him if his brother could find any UM commercials with Donna Shalala saying that they were recruiting a different kind of athlete to Miami. All he found so far was her saying that they were recruiting the best and the brightest to Miami. He's doing NASCAR broadcasts for ESPN so he can't waste his time on such trivial stuff but I have a feeling that you and I both know that you lied about that comment. There's a quote tank site that has a bunch of quotes from Donna Shalala but what you allege that she said isn't on there either. Give me the year (s) that commercial aired and he'll find it for sure. Then I'll put the commercial on youtube and post the link if she said what you allege.

Btw, what exactly did you mean by saying that Hurlie Brown has credibility from a social standpoint? I love how you keep avoiding when you get called out on your lies. I going to guess that you're never going to say what you meant about Hurlie Brown because everybody on here will know that you're prejudice. No matter how many times you post Miami's defensive ranking incorrect, it won't make it the truth. Colorado finished 117th.. look it up on the NCAA website or the link that I posted previously. You're entitled to your opinion but not your own set of facts.

Gallo expecting less from inner city kids is a travesty and slap to the face to their parents. Why should some kids be held to a lesser standard? Seriously, you're coming across as a jackarse.

Exactly....Gallo....your a pig....those parents of those athletes would piss in your face by the way....the way you think. You should be barred from ever posting again.

Your lists are dumb...mine are legit!!

" He's doing NASCAR broadcasts for ESPN so he can't waste his time on such trivial stuff but I have a feeling that you and I both know that you lied about that comment. " dUmbo Jimbo

1. I always believed that dirty whyte boy, Nascar garbage be bloody MUNDANE and whatnot. But then again, I could be wrong. But I doubt it! Huh

Because other than your typical dUmbo Jimbo's and their good ol' boy MINIONS. The flamboyant, Cool People DON'T give a fU#k bout' no Nascar! Eh. What say.

2. That dUmbo Jimbo be playing his USUAL " cherry-picking, nit picking " game. When it comes to another Cane fan's opinions and whatnot.

Because the bottom line is Mark Mark's defense stategems SUX. And AIN'T no difference between NO. 115 orNO.116 or NO.117 total team defense.

Can you dig it dUmboJimbo, and like-minded ILK. dUh

So, here's looking at a 8-4 regular season for y'all's Miami. And y'all Cane GOONS can put that on Marky Mark!

Bon jour et Bonsoir

Why are we offering dual-threat QBs? Is there any rhyme or reason to our recruiting approach or is it just recruit everyone and worry about it later? How many QB recruits do we really need?

GALLLLLOOOOOOO the DUMMY!!

I don't like NASCAR either but that that's his job. His job takes preference over a researching Donna Shalala and old UM commercials.

Since when is calling out a poster for the lies that he posted "cherry picking"? You know exactly what cAlvin meant by Hurlie Brown having credibility from a social standpoint! I just want the words to come from cAlvin himself.

Looks like we have another prejudice poster on the blog. Welcome D.. maybe you should take a diversity class instead of "French"...

Gallo you don't know $hit about how to win championships so stop acting like you do , You have no idea whether or not the kids off the team are good kids so stop acting like you do and the fact that one kid steals another kids laptop , and another kid is busted with drugs whether its just weed or not not still illegal sounds like a dicipline problem to me maybe we should have hired Shapiro to coach the team I'm sure he has not problem with breaking the law and or stealing . Go Canes

Dude if Gallo and Calvin had their way.....and our team had a "free for all" mentality with no accountability....we would never get the NCAA off our backs.

Did any of howard's, jimmy or erickson teams have a free for all and players were into way more serious stuff than what they doing now, coach goldie just can't handle it and does the only thing he knows, turns his back on the players and kicks them off the team. Off the field situations is no excuse for coach goldie, most of it is his own fault/"self inflicted", he's not going to thru nothing no other coach at Miami has been thru, in fact, he has it the easiest since "they're recruiting a different kind of athlete to the University of Miami" mandate is running rampant now. "No Excuses", either win or go find a home, go back to penn disgracr or somewhere in Virginia and coach under mike london since he owns both(goldie & clown 117th) of them, at Miami, we play defense first and than offense.

It's a disgrace to see us keep letting our offense start first, no deferring to the 2nd half, coach goldie is weak mentally football wise along with clown 117th. They coach like cowards, soft zones all game long is a coward's scheme. I'm almost not wanting to see Alquadin Muhammad to show up, because with these clowns and this defensive scheme, that man will be a part-time db, oach OH-NO can't wait to drop that man back in coverage which is sickeneing when you have someone banking on and putting more stock into the coverage d-linemen give over your own db's, just plain stupid.

Coach goldie has a history of cutting productive players, it didn't just start here. For a coach going into his 8th year as a headcoach, we should be seeing more production, not someone trying to manufacter production by softening up the schedule, you can't hide the Truth but for so long. shannon was 9 & 4 in his 3rd year, coach goldie inherited way more talent than shannon plus shannon had a way more tougher schedule so, no less than 11 & 2 this year is the standard.

Hate to inform you but AG is a coach not a probation officer or councelor . He does not have to wear those hats . There are 80 other players that are willing to do it right , if you want to steal , do drugs , miss practies , fail classes or anything else do it somewhere else and waste their time and resources . We are stretched thin enough without having to hold grown mens hands and cottle them to accept a chance at a $200,000 scholarship and millions of dollars in the NFL . Screw them and hold them accountable for letting down the team and their family . Don't think they are grown men? Ask them or try to tell them something and see what they tell you . Times are totaly different now and you can't get away with the things you used to .Go Canes

cAlvin why don't you give us your sources when you start blowing smoke out of your arse and quoting people. You have issues dude. I wonder if you even believe half the sh+t that comes out of your mouth.

While you're at it, tell us what you meant by saying that Hurlie Brown has credibility from a social standpoint...

GA......spot on......I think we can win the right way......w have no other choice.

We dont

A Butler CC player (kamalu) telling a brand like the "U" he doesn't want to come is something I would have never imagined at UM.....

TMZ continues at UM 2013....

"Was the hatred because Miami was not afraid to play anyone, anywhere, anytime as Miami would play top 10 teams year in and year out during the regular season when other teams did not want to face out of conference obstacles toward a National Championship"

"The '86 Hurricanes were caught up in "fights and fraud and alleged shoplifting and other unsavory shenanigans involving more than 40 players," wrote SI 's Rick Reilly. "Miami may be the only squad in America that has its team picture taken from the front and from the side."

this is not the 80's.....it is exactly like the 80's today.....golden has taken on the role of Tad Foote

If Stacy Coley plays more than Herb Waters UM can never set foot in Homestead Sr. High doors again!!!!

Relax Ridge....Waters is the man....if we were smart (Coley as well) he would take a redshirt year and ball out next year....Hurns will be gone.

Can you imagine Coley and Waters on the field at the same time IN 2014....WOW.

2007 season slide with 4 straight losses to end season
NC State - L - 19-16
Virginia - L - 48-0
Virginia Tech - L - 44-14
Boston College - L - 28-14

2008 Season slide (again!!) with 3 straight losses to end season:
Georgia Tech - 41-23
NC State - 38-28
California - Bowl game***** - 24-17 - Wait blame it on weather....too cold that night in San Fran

2009 - Another bowl loss
Citrus Bowl - L - Wisconsin - 20-14 - Wait blame the weather again....too cold in Orlando....

2010 Season slide again (again????)
Virginia Tech - L - 31-17
South Florida - L - 23-20
Notre Dame - L - Bowl game******* - 33-17 - Players seen throwing snowballs at one another on sideline....great job Shannon!!!!!

And the list could go on and on and on....

Gallo.....if Shannon left Golden "so much talent"....how do you explain the season ending "slides" as referenced above? You see....

You contradict yourself constantly....the argument has been.....was Shannon a good coach? If Golden "inherited" all THAT talent from Shannon....why was Shannon losing games at the end of those 3 seasons????????

If you said....Shannon left no talent in the cupboard for AG I would agree....hence all the losses. But...if Shannon left him TALENT....why was Shannon losing?

Which is it?

only a completely insane idiot would say including golden who has said the same thing in public that he wasn't left with any players.....

GALLO......IF GOLDEN WAS LEFT "PLAYERS" WHY WAS SHANNON LOSING?????????

Why 3 years of season ending "skids" if Shannon had "ALL THAT TALENT"???????

Do you know I was at the Champs Sports bowl. It was extremely embarrassing watching j12 an crew trot onto the field with their itty bitty hands in there little jersey pockets because it was too clod for them....I mean C'MON DUDE!!!!!!

Great....your list includes guys who had to be suspended AGS first year because they were cheating behind the scenes with Clint Hurtt and Co.

NICE ONE!!!!!

what slide....the only slide occurred when Golden took over:

2007: randy takes over and inherits kyle wright

total offense - 3780 / 30 TD's
total defense - 4140 / 31 sacks

2008: randy moved marve out - jacory in

total offense - 4238 / 42 TD's
total defense - 4121 / 30 sacks

2009: jacory firmly in place

total offense - 5187 / 50 TD's
total defense - 4277 / 23 sacks

2010: randy's last year

total offense - 5473 / 44 TD's
total defense - 4199 / 37 sacks

2011: golden takes over and is handed 2 top QB's (harris/morris)

total offense - 4524 / 41 TD's (worse than last year)
total defense - 4308 / 23 sacks (worse than last year)

2012: golden cry's about TMZ & tough scheduled

total offense - 5280 / 45 TD's worse then randys last year
total defense - 5832 / 13 sacks (all time UM worse record)

so what you see is when randy took over the performance pattern goes higher......when golden takes over the performance pattern goes lower....

golden is alike a bad stock....better to cut loses NOW....why wait for the inevitable?

keep drinking the kool aid....watch more TMZ...and schedule weak opponents so you can convince yourself that you earned a BCS bid......

"Was the hatred because Miami was not afraid to play anyone, anywhere, anytime as Miami would play top 10 teams year in and year out during the regular season when other teams did not want to face out of conference obstacles toward a National Championship"

yes.....this is not the 80's.....but golden puts on a good act....got to give you that.....his voice is smooth as silk....

Kevin Grooms didn't qualify because of the academics. How is that Golden's fault? I'm sure there are issues with some of the others on your list too. Funny how if a Shannon recruit De committed after Shannon was fired, he goes on Golden's casuality list but if the recruit kept his commitment with Golden on board then you give Shannon all of the credit. You're manipulating your lists to prove a point that has no basis.

Garrett Kidd was a walk on. He was never a Randy Shannon recruit. Did you even look at UM's roster or just copy and paste it your list?

Gallo....why do you keep posting stats???????

Wins and losses are all that counts buddy!!!!!

Those stats didn't do squat for us obviously.

A lot of Shannon's returning players on your list suck. Why would you include them as players left for Golden like they're some kind of ballers?

this is not the 80's.....it is exactly like the 80's today.....golden has taken on the role of Tad Foote

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

This my friend is exactly what coach goldie is doing, he'll learn quick, you're either going to have to be a real solid coach or you're going to have to become an expert at keeping things in house. As soon as coach goldie gets on the radio he wants to start trying to justify why he got rid of certain players. Only an idiot thinks he can get all 85 plus players to follow all the rules when in a household with 1 or 2 kids that's not going ot happen let alone at the college level of 85.

Also, if those few players that were kicked off the team didn't get into trouble is coach goldie saying we would've been in the national title hunt, technically, we wasn't in the acc title game hunt only by way of unc's down-fall. coach goldie will learn soon, kicking the productive players off the team, pull schalorships from local players and than turning around and offering out of state recruits for the same postion.
Lying to the highschool coaches, blaming the players after games.

Ag does not have to justify why he got rid of certain players he just has to explain what they did to be removed from the team . Ag did nothing wrong here , how in the world you give these players a pass and try to put it all on AG is beyond comprehension . A scholarship was pulled from a kid that refused to even privately commit to the U at the end of recruiting so we could go in another direction if we needed to so thats on the kid as well . You are the only ones bitching about this stff , we still have kids from all the the surrounding schools interested in us not a word said about last year except from you. The more you stir $hit the worse it smells , apparently that is your goal , just to stir it up even if it is irrelavent. Go Canes

pay attention pea.....this is what golden had to start with......end of story.....this EXACTLY what golden was left with......

Still no response from cAlvin about he meant about Hurlie Brown having credibility from a social standpoint... par for the course from that P.O.S.

the argument by green peas is that golden was left with a depleted roster that couldn't be farther from the truth......

the guy is just mediocre....accept it....he will always loose 6/7 games on average per year at UM.....

Pay attention to your lists..

The 6-foot-1, 165-pound Garrett Kidd made the Daily News First Team as a senior and was a versatile player. He was Dow's second-leading receiver with more than 200 yards, and was also an All-Saginaw Valley League Second Team punter, played safety on defense, and returned kicks and punts.Kidd said that his versatility impressed new Miami head coach Al Golden, whom he sent some footage of his football highlights and met in person on an official visit to the campus."He said he really liked how I had started at four or five positions and started on special teams," said Kidd, who was also one of the leading scorers on the Midland co-op lacrosse team this spring.Meanwhile, Dillon Kidd attended and played football, basketball and golf at Dow High as a freshman and a sophomore from 2006-08, before attending a high school in California his junior year and then graduating from North Broward Prep in Florida in 2010.Dillon Kidd then attended and played Milford Academy in New Berlin N.Y., a college prep school, this past year.Garrett and Dillon's father, John Kidd, a former NFL punter with four teams, including the Miami Dolphins, lives in Florida.

Gallo....you keep avoiding my question:

IF SHANNON LEFT GOLDEN SO MUCH TALENT...WHY WAS SHANNON LOSING GAMES? IF SHANNON HAD SO MUCH TALENT....HE SHOULD HAVE NOT LOST 3 OR 4 GAMES AT THE END OF THE 07,08 & 09 YEARS.

IF SHANNON HAD GREAT TALENT THAT HE LEFT FOR GOLDEN THEN ITS SAFE TO SAY RANDY WAS NOT A GOOD COACH CORRECT?

have no idea what that blogger is talking about.....garrett kidd is listed on the UM 2011 roster as a freshman DB.....he is under ben jones (jr-ol) and above deantre lewis (fr-wr)

what your point.....that the list is fraudulent?..get real, those players are all listed on the 2011 roster as players and also the list includes recruits that shannon gave golden....so stop with your BS...

golden sucks..plain and simple and all the stats support it......

the guys is listed as eligible to play......he was AVAILABLE if golden wanted him.....

if you think 1 player = gotcha out of 85 players your more of an idiot than I initially though you were.....

dum dum.......

what is it that you dont understand....you asked and I gave your the answer to your question...

Your showing us stats....big deal....they did not equate to wins with Shannon. Your showing us stats to show that under Randy our stats were better....they were but did not equte to wins for Shannon...stats mean nothing wins and losses do.
