Canes latest commitment -- QB Malik Rosier -- is another quarterback who can swing the bat

Another day, another commitment.

On a day UM confirmed former quarterback David Thompson was giving up football to concentrate on baseball, the Hurricanes netted their 17th commitment in the Class of 2014 from another quarterback who can swing the bat, too.

Alabama Faith Academy's Malik Rosier, also a catcher who hit .400 on his high school baseball team, committed to Miami late Tuesday night, a decision the 6-2, 205-pound told the Press-Register he reached after sat down and talked it out with his mom.

Rated a three-star recruit according to 247Sports.com, Rosier had other offers that included Southern Mississippi, Northern Illinois, Western Kentucky, Arkansas State, Louisiana-Lafayette and Furman. He camped at Miami back on June 2nd according to published reports and will visit Coral Gables again this coming weekend.

Despite his football team finishing 3-7 in 2012, he completed 169 of 305 pass attempts for 2,238 yards and 20 touchdowns and also ran for 1,002 yards and 12 touchdowns on 153 carries.

Rosier was a running back on the junior varsity team as an eighth-grader according to the Press-Register. As a freshman, he started at free safety for the varsity before moving to quarterback in a Wing-T system as a sophomore.

His coach Rusty Mason told the Press-Register in March he's been pleasantly surprised with Rosier's quick adjustment from a Wing-T to the Tony Franklin-style offense the Rams ran last season.

"He played way above any expectations I could have had for him," Mason said. "He just continued to get better. From Week 1 to Week 10, it was like night and day. We knew what he was physically - he looks great. But you never know mentally how a kid is going to react.

"When you roll him out, he's as good as I've ever had and maybe as good as I've ever seen in terms getting his shoulders square and hitting a receiver on the run. We'll put more on him this year, more checks. A lot of our stuff is run-pass switches, and he'll have a chance to do more of that."

Manny and Susan, have you given any thoughts to turning off the comments section of your blog?

It's painful to read, the comments from UM fans about UM sports completely buried under a mountain of garbage from UM and UF internet trolls.

At the very least you could require a login, the Miami Herald requires a Facebook login to comment, even a Twitter or Discus login would reduce the childish noise.

2014 Roster at the rate we're going....

Defensive Tackles.......3
QB's....................17

What's wrong with this Picture?

I love Golden and the staff but we might look like a top 10 class right now in most major recruiting websites but with the ton of 2 star,1 star and 0 stars commitments we have we'll be out of the top 20 when all the 5 and 4 stars start committing to other schools. we need to start loading up with the local 4 and 5 stars soon or in the next 6 months every school will pass us by in the rankings.

Great Feet.

OH, THERE'S GATR TRASH THREATENIN'
MY VERY LIFE TODAY
IF I DON'T GET A TRAILER
OH YEAH I'M GONNA FADE AWAY

RAPE! MURDER! IT'S JUST THE GATAH WAY, IT'S JUST THE GATAH WAY.

Why require Twitter or Facebook? Just keep it open, you don't have read every comment. Reading some of these posts make me feel sorry for people with mental issues.

Tro what's wrong with you bro, why ruin the party by pointing out the obvious?
By the time 2014 comes along we will be out of scholies since we are giving them out like BOGO to every 2 star kid who shows up at Goldie's camps.
Enjoy the rankings while you can and don't remind us that it will change in the coming months, don't tell us all the top recruits are still out there and will probably go elsewhere. Let us wallow in our delusion, it's all we got.
And what is wrong with having 17 QBs, 12 RBs and 25 WRs?
You forgot the top position of strength, our 32 TEs.
Don't you know Goldie is the master at changing TEs into DTs?
That's why we don't need to sign any DTs and looks like we wont.
Trust blindly in Golden like we all do.
Have some more kool aid bro.

Hey guys just got in to town and will begin practice soon. I'm gonna lay low this first week here but the weekend of the 4th I'm off to the Keys.
Bar crawl and party hardy! No trees or parked cars please.

Tro- nice exaggeration.But realize that Thompsonjust decided to play only baseball. So we are down one already. Morris is gone next year. That maskes two. Leaving Crow, Dewey, olsen and a couple of other to compete. Just like Alabama with 10 scholarship running backs.

By the way- Oregon just received probation. limited scholie and paid visits restrictions. Show-cause for Chip kelly (which doesnt matter he is in the NFL)

Oregon paid and lodged recruits (hmmmm sounds familiar)- difference is, They didnt have yahoo sports publish the allegations of a convicted felon.

Similar infractions. Difference is also, UM selfimposed 2 bowls, 1 conf championship plus limited practices and paid every single $ back and players involved were suspended multiple games, including the starting QB and D-end (Vernon)

Oregon will not get any bowl suspensions and they never self imposed

oregon is a repeat offender- as recent as 2004- when they wereput on probation, so... less than 10 years later they commit infractions again and this is how they get punished?

Translation: UM penalty WILL NOT BE HARSH.

I PREDICT:

3 scholies per year X5 years
5 year probation
No bowl ban
Limits on boosters
Show cause for Hurtt, haith and Hill

Miami goes 10-2 reg season next year and the beginning of the return of the storm

Cant wait

Fewer people read this blog because the comments section is open.

That's a verifiable fact, it's hard not to scroll down and every single time you do you read a bunch of childish nonsense from internet nerds claiming to be football fans. Many UM fans avoid reading the coverage because of this comments section, the reporting isn't worth the aggravation of seeing this garbage.

Quincy Wilson still doesn't have an offer I'm so puzzled by this our offense is stacked but we need help on defense Goldie's focus should be the front 4 mainly dts an secondary guys whom roam the field sideline to sideline

Every play from shotgun. No wonder his team didn't win. No running game. I'm hopeful but skeptical that this kid is going to help us.

Anyone see the "sanctions" handed down to Oregon for their failure to monitor charge? They were paying players through a recruiting service and they got 3 years probation, with a loss of ONE scholarship per year for three years. Chip Kelly can't coach in college football for 18 months. It appears that the NCAA is deciding to punish coaches rather than current players that had nothing to do with the infractions. Good sign for the Canes...

Slap on the wrist for a program (Oregon) that used illegal recruiting to make MILLIONS playing in BCS games.
Miami gains NO athletic advantage for their issues, and loses 3 post-season games, scholarships, and millions in extra funding?
Where is the fairness?

Anyone who thinks the "powers that (shouldn't ) be" have it in for UM are crazy, biased, or Aaron Hernandez supporters.

Rated a three-star recruit according to 247Sports.com, Rosier had other offers that included Southern Mississippi, Northern Illinois, Western Kentucky, Arkansas State, Louisiana-Lafayette and Furman.

These are the level of schools that you recruit against for low level talent.

Top-Programs DID NOT even offer this nobody. Enjoy

Don't know what Oregon is accused of but they got off with a slap on the wrist.

Since 2006 the #SEC has won a combined 13 National Championships in the men's big 3 (FBall, BaseB, BBall) from 6 different schools.

National Titles in Baseball, Football and Men's Basketball since 05-06:
SEC 13
Pac-12 3
Big 12 2
ACC 2
Big East 2
WAC 1
Big Ten 0

Simply The BEST

Sorry, I meant "don't have it in" for UM above.
As regards Rosier, while, on the surface it appears we might be "bottom feeding" a bit, you have to consider that when Coach Golden sees a 16-17 year old in camp, he's extrapolating the upside. Also, a LOT can happen in a year. Lets see how they have this young man positioned in December 2014.
For you UF gangsters, how has your present "5 star" QB panned out under your present offensive guru?

Think about it...

I know your feeling but a BLOG is what it is..
I might not agree, and thoroughly abhor some of the comments, ideas, and opinions, but it is an open forum that one should be able to discuss opinions.

One should not think in terms of censorship, but definitely most bloggers know when they cross the line, and I believe this site is no worse than others with stated opinions by ardent and vociferous fans.

If you do not like or agree feel free to slide on by. You do not have to read or follow the opinions.
Read the story and move on.

As far as requiring Facebook, Twitter and Discus to participate, many bloggers like the fact that they can comment without receiving unwanted messages on their accounts, or heaven forbid there is a breach and all those accounts are opened and compromised.
Go 'Canes

Ummm, Pig, UL-Laf had the Gatr Trash on the ropes. The UFailure needed a last minute punt block to win.

So, at least, that school is on the same level (football-wise) as the UFailure. Academically, it is superior.

Just say NO to trailertrash.

Just admit that []_[] stink and the GATORS are GREAT and OWN []_[] ...

And it all goes away...

For those who haven't watched the ACC much, it is an OFFENSE minded conference. Thus, you WIN with OFFENSE. Opposite of the SEC.
Presently, UM's objective is not, nor should be competing with the Alabama's...it ain't gonna happen to Saban moves on. However, win an ACC Championship, play in a bowl game against a Pac 12 or Big 10 team, and anything can happen.
What UM fan wouldn't be happy, at least this year, maybe next with a 12-2 record, including wins in the ACC championship and a BVS game.

For a private university to compete that well these days would be an accomplishment.
My university just being mentioned with the big boys, and doing it while providing a REAL education? PRICELESS.

You also lead in murders, robberies, assaults on women, illegal recruiting. If there was justice, Auburn would be on 10 years probation and no bowl games for the Cam Newton thing, let alone the recent transgressions.
Winning is great, but other than Vanderbilt, show me another SEC school with the quality education of GA Tech, UM, Duke, Wake Forest, Virginia, etc.
Sports is a circle. The ACC lacks the big name coaches right now. When that gets handled, they will compete.
BTW, UCLA handled MSU pretty easily in CWS, not even a contest.

Don't respond to that Pig. He posts the same garbage just to get a rise.

Has been doing it for years. Same Pig. Same posts.

What's even more pathetic is that no mid or lower level school from any BCS Conference School offered either. That's at least 8 commits in Miami's 2014 Class that haven't been offered by decent D-1 Schools. Only low-mid majors, 1-AA and D-2 schools. But Miami's handing out schollies to these below average recruits like they're passing out fliers. It really is amusing how Cane fans get so charged up over such average news. Especially these last 8 commits that are on no top teams radar.

And when they hit the field, and all you Canes yell and scream, "what are these guys doing ? why do these guys stink?" That will be the reason why. Stockpiled average talent that Golden blindly thinks will work with his Temple and Penn. St. mentality.

Face it you have just 3-Kids, and 3 kids only in your entire 2014 class that were offered my ANY Top-10-20 Program. All of the Noles commits have Big-Time offers. Look it up. Everyone. And that's why we will continue to own you Canes.

GO NOLES !

No, the bloggers on this blog wouldn't use facebook because they would be absolutely mortified if people they knew in real life knew they were spending their time childishly trolling each other on the internet.

This is not a forum where anyone can talk about sports.

At all.

It's a childish cesspool.

Rosier has good pocket sense and great escapability. Only thing to work on is the passing; too many lollipops. Needs some arm strengthening.

If he doesn't have the arm strength at 18 yrs. old, he won't have it at 22 yrs. old. This kid would compete for a back-up spot at Southern Mississippi, Northern Illinois, Western Kentucky, Arkansas State, Louisiana-Lafayette and Furman. And he's going to compete At Miami? Just another project. Hope we can close with commits that can "play" a specific position instead of bouncing around between QB-WR-CB-S. We have way to many of these kids. It wouldn't be a problem if they were actually top players. Still waiting on some top LB-DE-DT's. We aren't in the running for the top remaining players at those positions. That's why there are so many "projects" and "reaches" that we are getting now. If they work out ? Great. But the vast majority don't. Too many Highsmith Jr. on this team.

Same old song. Another no name scrub no top program wanted. Golden signing kids on a flyer, 20 - 30 nobodies maybe 1 or 2 will pan out. It's who you are. At least you only play 2 good teams and can go 10 - 2 without doing much. Pathetic.

Dont worry guys, they will sign at least 25 guys,,so the remaiing 8 scholarships can go to either 4 star or 5 star players,,,

We need some bloody credit card stealin', aggravated battery, MURDERERS up in this joint.

Dis ain't a trailerpark but they'll have to adjust.

Looking at the top recruiting sites, they have UM ranked 4-7-13. This coming from guys behind a computer getting second hand info. Not exactly a science. Evaluating athletes first hand as Goldie is doing, gives them a feel of the true talent of the athlete, his character and how they fit in your system to be developed to true STARDUM.
It was the blue print for the Canes Championship years. When we started recruiting on the star system and going after the Kyle Wrights of the world, that's when we struggled.
However, the fact that Goldie is giving scholarships at this rapid pace, leads me to believe that he expects that the NCAA will bring sanctions on the amount of scholarships available. Hence, he is loading up to have depth and red shirt and develop some of these recruits. He is still going to get 4-5 elite recruits that are highly coveted by the recruiting sites.
Once the NCAA bull is behind us..Forget About it!!
The dynasty will return.

Go Noles:

When Free Shoes university can play a season when they are ranked in the preseason rankings and

NOT CHOKE, or lose to the likes of Wake Forest or NC state,

and or lose to florida

Then come on here and talk

1999 was a loooooong time ago Mr semenhole

There they go again- them rednecks with their SEc when their school s-ks a55

UM 9 championships in the 3 major sports

Floriduh- 5

that's stat enough for me

Posted by: al | June 26, 2013 at 02:37 PM

Ur forgetting two Major things Al.

1. Any 4-5 Star kid that looks at the class,overall, won't be impressed and will NOT want to be a part of a class with so many unranked and 2-3 Star projects. Come January, that class rank will drop like a rock in the ocean when even more 2-low 3 star kids commit. That's exactly why Golden is offering so many now. It's all he has to choose from. Watch for half of the "real" 7-8 kids that are pretty good to be decommitting and go searching elsewhere come December. Happened last year and will again this year. Of course the remaining 10 unranked, 2 and low 3 star kids will stay. Nobody else will even bother to offer them.

2. There are roughly 100 4-5 Star kids left on the table. U might be in the running, and barely, for 4-5 ofthem at all. That means only 4-5 are even considering Miami as an option. The other 95 or so have already told Golden NO. U are Not in play for 10-12 of them each like the Top-10 programs. They will pick those guys off and U will be lucky to even get 1 or 2. Think more Top 250 to over 350 prospects. The mid-low 3 Stars. U might be lucky and get 4-5 of those kids once the Big Teams are done at the table gorging at the 4-5 Star Buffet. It will be much like last year in Late Jan. and Feb where Golden will have 5-8 extra schollies and offers them to kids that U will all say, "who" ???

But Al will schmooooze U into believing they're all future Ed Reed 2-star stars and U will line up like zombies going along with it all just like U did with Shannon.

Gator trolls and fair weather fans would do better to go hold a prayer meeting for Aaron Hernandez than waste their hard earned welfare dollars on sports blogs.

Oh wait can I mention the word "prayer" nowadays?

He is still going to get 4-5 elite recruits that are highly coveted by the recruiting sites.
Once the NCAA bull is behind us..Forget About it!!

Posted by: RedCane | June 26, 2013 at 02:50 PM

No he's not ... and No Ur not.


< Loves how Gator fans have to come to a UM site to feel better about themselves. Afterall, one of their heroes is done for life now that he actually has to answer for shooting up people and places...not in Gainesville anymore and can't get the DA to pass it off as a minor offense. We may have our share of issues at the U, but UFelon has surpassed all of college football with arrests in the last 6 years. Something else they can be proud of...being the champ of chumps!

For all The U haters out there Miami is Ranked #7 by Bleacher Report(one of the most respected College Football outlets out there) and the article read, "If Everybody on Miami stays healthy they will go 13 and 0 and Play in National Championship game.

GATORS HERNANDEZ CHARGED WITH FIRST DEGREE MURDER!!!

For years people have been pointing out that University of Florida athletics has become a factory for churning out felons.

Over the past 10 years the school has time and again gamed the system using the attorney Huntley Johnson to do so.

Today, the NFL released information that Hernandez while attending and playing for the University of Florida failed approximately 6 drug tests, but was never suspended. This coupled with Hernandez being arrested for attacking an employee at a local business, was a suspect in a shooting where the victim was left in critical condition and another shooting where he shot an individual who lost his eye.

Florida Athletic Director Jeremy Foley has time and again ignored many crimes by Florida football players claiming the school takes these matters very seriously, yet no steps to stop the onslaught of crimes committed by the players have been instituted to address this very serious and ever growing problem.

The NCAA is being asked to do a thorough review of all Florida's athletic programs that could be catastrophic to the school going forward if what many believe to be true that the university has been hiding or even abetting their student athletes to keep them eligible.

A UF thug punk a55 charged with murder?

Please say it isn't so!!!

One of Urban the liar's 35 arrests at UF? Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah !

Are you serious?

I do not believe this

Soemeone please call Jeremy Foley stat to see if he can get poor little Aaron out of the slammer

W/ 'Goldy, it's never been about the players that come here. He's not getting everybody he should be getting, but anybody can win with a team stockpiled with Fla players.

The thing here is what happens to players when they get here. there is nothing and nobody really in place to show them the right path and to really keep them here.

RS had his faults, but discipline wasn't one of them. A lot of players, like Johnson and Paul, RS would have dealt with and showed them the right way. This regime is just mediocre on the field and off it.

CANESPACE brUtes and the rest of Hurricane rUffians be bloody Delusional!! And I be serious as YOUR typical dirt vanilla wafer boy!!! Huh

Again, let M-E spell out for y'all MARKY MARK and Goldie loyalist.

For instance, oth Goldie and Marky INEPT are SYSTEM coaches ( Golden's ENCYCLOPEDIA book anyone.). And that particular SYSTEM is apt for LOWER-TIER b.c.s. programs, i.e., TEMPLE University. dUh

And that's W-H-Y Goldie and Marky Mark are heavily pursuing THREE-STAR prep players. Enter the recent QB talent. Eh. What say.

COOL CAT and CALVIN bloody well Speak TrUth to Power. Huh

By the way, many, many, many moons ago, Cane CHIEF. I absolutely stated that QB David would go the baseball route. dUh And I was LYNCED for blabbering an opinion. Albeit the LYNCHING was a cyberspace sort. Huh

And if memory serves moi correctly. Wasn't QB David a FOUR-STAR prospect.

Bon jour et Bonsoir

What say?

I say you're either retarded or have suffered a major stroke.

The PERCENTAGES of 3-Star high school players developing into B.C.S. DIFFERENCE MAKERS are 25% to 20%. And that's with the STARS in ABSOLUTE alignment and what not.
Yeah, yeah the major college football realm has a Sammy Bradford now and then.
But just too many THREE-STAR prep talent are CAREER third-string players and what not. Huh

Again, future University of Miami, Florida player rosters will be DOMINATED by 3-Star prep players. Huh
In other words DORKY Cane brutes! Hurricane rosters will be comprised of approximately 70-77 players, whom were former 3-Star H.S. players.
And that is a 100 player roster I be WISELY bloviating bout'. Eh. What say.
Bon jour et Bonsoir

Dig this y'all Cane rUffians (YIKES and his canespace MININONS, for example. Huh )!

Even AFTER Miami serves it's HARSH n.CORRUPT a.a. time. Both Goldie and YOUR Marky Mark inept will still go HEAVILY after 3-Star prep talent.

Bloody well GUARANTEE IT!!!!

Bon jour et Bonsoir

Now,now don't get moi wrong and what not. Because I absolutely don't have nothing against 3-STAR high school players and what not. Huh
However, any team from a major college football conference just CAN'T consistently play in a B.C.S. bowl game and or win a conference championship. Let alone play in a national championship game.
When relying on more than HALF of the starters being 3-Starer'. Eh. What say fool.
Yeah, yeah there's Boise St, but the Broncos play in the W.EAK A.THELETIC C.ONFERENCE, and only play ONE decent non-conference foe. Eh. What say.
