Receiver Jontavious Carter latest to leave Hurricanes

The exodus of seldom used players at the University of Miami continued Saturday morning when it was learned receiver Jontavious Carter was no longer with the program.

A three-star recruit out of Crisp County, Ga., the 6-2, 230-pound redshirt freshman wasn't listed among the six receivers on the Hurricanes' most recent depth chart at the conclusion of fall camp. He was even behind new arrival Stacy Coley.

The Hurricanes, who have seven scholarship receivers on the roster (Coley, Phillip Dorsett, Allen Hurns, D'Mauri Jones, Malcolm Lewis, Rashawn Scott and Herb Waters), have lost four players to departures in the past two weeks. The others: redshirt freshman running back Danny Dillard, senior defensive end Dyron Dye (the last link to the NCAA investigation), and redshirt sophomore defensive lineman Jalen Grimble (Oregon State).

Of the 14 players who have left the team since the end of last season, a dozen were recruited by coach Al Golden’s staff including seven from the 2012 recruiting class.

UM closed training camp a day early this week and coach Al Golden hasn't been made available to the media since Monday.

Is there a reason to close camp early? I have just never heard of such? Coaches usually want to use every practice available to them.

Preference is for them to leave after the season or spring so you can have time to fill out scholarship spots. Cause while guys might not play you want the scout team to have some talent on it so you get guys ready each week for the game.

Carter had some talent. Never like seeing talent leave.

Carter may have had talent, but, not enough to break into the top tier. Too bad, but, he may be able to link up with another program that needs some help. On another note, doesn't it seem awkward that the NCAA continues to drag it's heels on delivering a decision, but, can take time to deal with other less urgent tasks. I'm thinking that they may hold off until it has the most impact, like, just before the florida game? Maybe not, but, if they do, it only shows how the NCAA can be petty. They certainly can't have any program stand up to them, doesn't make them look good, but, then much of their damage, they, caused themelves.

Here comes little brother from Gainesville to hump UM's leg in 3.......2........1

Is it possible that UM already have the penalties but since they are a private school the NCAA can't release info until UM does? Manny would that be too big to keep quiet?

all the biggest guys incoming all gone......so much for all the BS about golden being a great recruter....plus national signing day is so far away...who knows who will ultimately commit to UM....

the exodus continues....

this staff is a disaster already...golden/dnofrio need to go


Wait...Wait...Wait...

Gallo's updated list in...

Oh...forgot...no on really cares about Gallo any longer..

With that being said...I expect the NCAA to try and come down on UM the Friday of the Florida game...as that will most likely be a big national or regional game.

Bleeding Orange, Green & White!

14 recruited under golden.....12 leave....loss ratio of 86% and always without a reason......golden wont talk to media.....

golden is just a good car salesman.....once they get here the rose comes off.....

Prediction: 9-3

Comment: The Hurricanes have a stout offensive line, and one of college football’s best quarterback-tailback duos. It is time for the University of Miami to stop making excuses. Fix the defense and Al Golden’s team should be playing for the ACC Championship at the end of this season.

exactlyyyyyyyyy, excuses are over.....put or get out at this point.

Jim Galloxy needs a hobby!

Carter was only an injury or two away from playing time this season. UM could end up short of wide receivers as the year progresses. KIds want to play right away these days and no longer wait their turn.

The Canes have 109 players on the roster currently.

You can only dress like 60 away and 80 at home, so no big deal for a few to depart. In fact, I've been worried that with all the accepted 2014 offers we were running out of room to accommodate the undecideds out there.

As long as the churn is coming off the guys not on the depth chart it is a good thing. More room for 2014+.

a red shirt freshman? he hasn't paid his dues yet..
They are high school phenoms until they get to college and realty sets in.

!!!!!!!!!!

More INDOCTRINATION from a Canespace dUde!! Nothing more and nothing less.

Because, what this Hurricane bUbba is bloody INSINUATING, is Goldie had nothing to do with CHIT-CANNING another Miami player.

By the way, the VAST MAJORITY of recent players to be CUT-LOSE by Goldie, were players HEAVILY recruited by U Know Who. hUh Go figure!

******************

Voila!

And Hurricane partisan bellows all these CHIT-CANNED, departures left on their own accord for various reasons, and Goldie had nothing to do with CUTTING-LOSE dead weight. Eh. What say.

Still, I don't blame Goldie for CHIT-CANNING 14 of HIS recruits.

It's the Cane loyalists which should be CALLED-OUT and what not.

Because Canespace bUbba was yapping that the majority of these former Hurricane players would become the next... fill in the blank, and would eventually become All-Conference and what not. hUh

It seems as if Susan, Manny, now Omar, and other writers are beginning to sense a pattern of self-inflicted stagnation (rinse, wash, spin, repeat) and excuse making with our football program. this articles have a matter of fact ring to them as if Manny and susan are being suggestive or trying to lead Us to an idea that things are looking shaky around Coral Gables. Since some only what to here the opinions of "experts" despite being regulars on a blog--what do yall think?

I wish Manny and Susan expressed their feelings instead of dropping hints (remember they dropped the same hints during Shannon's tenure as to how dry and unforthcoming he was concerning injuries and updates).

Talk has run its course. And rightfully so, its the Cane way to express one's self thru actions and performance ultimately.

Goldie is CLEANING the Cane HOUSE now. Because the N.C.A.A. is going to bloody CRUCIFY his program this season and next season. A bowl sanction in 2013, and an unknown number of scholarship losses in the near term future, for instance.

Cut the dead weight, if they don't contribute then they don't need to take up a scholly. With the class size we have coming in we will need all the roster room we can get.

The Palm Beach Post had an article earlier this week about the delayed announcement of the sanctions. Inside sources informed the Post that the NCAA is trying to inflict maximum damage to the program with the announcement. They expect the sanction to be announced the week of the UF game.

Because of the moronic NCAA decision that hasn't come down yet Al Golden has had to take a lot of kids that didn't and don't belong at the U. Now that we know the end is near and everybody knows we shouldn't be getting another bowl ban we're opening roster spots for the 4 and 5 star recruits that are in the Miami area. Give Al Golden a break. We will be good this year and will dominate the next 3 years. Future looks good.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&

This Cane ZOMBIE is missing the whole point of Manny's assertion at the conclusion of his short note.

The VAST MAJORITY of these EXCOMMUNICATED players were prep players HEAVILY RECURITED by Goldie!!

So, that indicates Goldie must have a FAULTY eye when it comes to eying, and judging H.S. talent and what not.

Golden is a GREAT recruiter, but 20% of his recruits haven't panned out and another 20% never even qualified and have never played a down or suited up for Us.

How can your coaching philosophy be admittedly dependent on "veteran" lol..to be successful but your own mistakes in recruiting and subsequent mutual departures have worked against this very initiative to develop depth?

At the time of their commitments they were all describe as word-working, talented, and character kids, Especially Gionni Paul! That was Golden's boy--what happened? His first kid to sign etc etc..

We'll be fine though. Go Canes!

Yes, the N.C.A.A. is about to bloody LYNCH the Hurricane football program.

The question is how severe the scholarship losses will be, and how long Miami will be on probation.

And I-F the sanctions and penalties handed down on Goldie's program are troublesome. Then, those 5-Star H.S. recruits will say no thanks, to Goldie!

It's not 14 recruited by Golden and 12 left... its out of the 14 departures, 12 were recruited by Golden.

Sad to see Carter go. Kid is talented but I don't blame him if his departure stems from wanting more playing time. Stacey Coley is the real deal and with Dorsett, Waters, Scott, Lewis, and the current WR recruits, maybe a change of scenery will be better for him.

Hopefully, he goes to a school that has good academics because a quality education is forever but an NFL career is only temporary. If he doesn't make it at the next level, he will always have that degree to fall back on. Hopefully Carter made life long friends while in Coral Gables.

THIS IS NOT A BAD THING FOR CARTER BECAUSE IF HE FILLS HE CAN PLAY SOMEWHERE ELSE THEN THAT'S FINE AND I WISH HIM WELL.. AT LEAST HE WASN'T A TROUBLE MAKER AND I HOPE HE DOESN'T GO TO AN OPPONENT. THIS JUST SHOWS HOW DEEP WE ARE AT WR AND JUST HOW SPECIAL STACY COLEY IS BECAUSE WORD IS "HE CAN PLAY RIGHT NOW". MY ISSUE IS IF THERE IS NOT TOLERANCE WITH PLAYERS THAN THERE SHOULD BE NO TOLERANCE WITH COACHES EITHER. IF DUNNO CAN'T GET THE JOB DONE HE MUST GO THERE IS NO ROOM FOR HIM TO PLAY WITH THIS TEAM THIS YEAR!! EITHER PUT UP OR GET OUT.. THE NATIONAL EXPERTS ARE STARTING TO GET ON THE CANES BANDWAGON AND WE AS CANES FANS SHOULD EXPECT NO LESS THAN A 10/11 WIN SEASON AND A BETH IN ACC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.. THE NCAA RULING WILL NOT HAVE ANY AFFECT BECAUSE IF RULING IS NOT TO THE CANE LIKING THAN THEY WILL APPEAL AND THAT RULING WOULD NOT COME TIL AFTER THE SEASON IS OVER AND BOWL SEASON.. TIME TO GET IT DONE THIS YEAR NOT NEXT!! IF THIS TEAM CANNOT WIN 10 GAMES THAN DO NOT BE SURPRISED IF GOLDEN WALKS!! HOPE NOT BUT DON'T BE SURPRISED!! GO CANES!!

A major college football team can never have enough depth at the various positions.

But it seems y'all's beloved Goldie is OVER RECRUITING at certain positions, and CAN'T seem to get enough talented recruits at certain positions of need.

I guess Coach should have held off before making this comment a couple weeks ago

"We have the right guys on the train right now"

Players leave all the time. Some cause they think they are better and some maybe cause they weren't as good as the coach thought. About 1 state north, there's a team that constantly has guys "asked" to leave. Last time I checked, they had won the last 2 BCS championships.

It's just part of the new college football landscape. Big money paid to coaches means coaches need to maybe sometimes act like pro coaches and just let guys leave

Luckily one of Goldie's QB recruits BAILED ON HIM, and chose to play on the diamond.

Heck, another current QB, or two, could leave after the season because of two more QB VERBAL commitments coming in 2014.

A loyal, Hurricane fan mentioned that Goldie is an EXCELLANT car salesmen and what not. Because he really sold those 12 prep players a Green nd' Orange ' Lemon. '

However, it remains to be seen if Goldie's all about the championships and what not.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOL... seriously.

When you lose bottom of the roster guys it's usually a good sign that competitive level is rising. Also helps us in recruiting WRs who see playing time(Lane?).
Of all guys we lost only Eddie Johnson is a bummer.

Agree with TK Swan except that D'Onofrio deserves this year to show complete turn around or he is out.
Last year he simply did not have the personnel or experience for the type of defense he wants to play.
Itching for year to begin to shut up a certain moron who comes on here with the same nonsense and long list of overrated slackers.

Thank goodness all the useless conjecture will end this coming Fri. at 8PM, 5 here in AZ. and we'll finally find out how good... or bad the Canes are. If we struggle against FAU then it looks like we'll be in for another long season and not only should D'Onofrio be given his walking papers, but also Golden for retaining what he knew to be a mediocre coach, at best. If we run rough shod over FAU, then I believe we have a fun season to look forward to. GO CANES!!!!!!

Go outside you retarded stroke victim.

Eh? What say and what not?

Bloody douchebag.

Marios,

"Last year he simply did not have the personnel or experience for the type of defense he wants to play"

So why didn't he change and play a defense to accommodate his talent? Did he practice last spring? So why didn't he know he didnt have the personnel to play his style of defense? After the first 4 games did he know he didn't have the personnel and experience to play his style of defense? do this staff know the meaning of adjustments?

I think jontavious carter is wrong, you're still a freshman and just because you might not play in a team loaded with receivers, he would have got his time, he would have had to wait till allen hurns and phillip dorsett were gone, but he would have got his turn.

look...these kids were offered scholarships just a few months ago....all of a sudden they get cut. WTF is scouting these kids to begin with?

its only a matter of time.....both of these guys are gonna feel the heat....golden/dnofrio really don't have the ability to coach UM football.....they are not strong enough......

I can see UM getting blow out by florida....

JUST CASE OF YOUNG MEN NOT ABLE TO GET ANY BURN GOOD LUCK
TO YOU ALL IT'S TO BAD YOUR GONNA MISS THE BEGINNING OF A DYNASTY.

hey gayturd trash shouldn't you be worried about your sister cheating on you? concern yourself with what's important I'm your simple life rather than trolling cane sites.... loser!

The only way UM gets blown out or even beaten by UF at home this season with the O-line we have, offensive and defensive talent, Duke, and a Heisman level QB is because of coaching. No excuses, UF is not superior to us on a talent level. Now we'll see what our coaches have up their sleeves.

"I can see UM getting blow out by florida...."

Of course you can Jim Gallo.

You really shouldn't follow college football, you have no reason to.

I wonder how many of you that are being critical of Coach Golden and his staff have ever played the game of football at Division 1level or coached at this level. If you do not have these requirements, then your opinion is worthless .
David Weissman Class of 64

Yall forgot what happened when storm johnson left.
I admit i was upset, but what happened?
\DUKE FUCKN JOHNSON
Yeah you hate to see talent go , but the recruit train keeps moving.
Also sometime players attitudes about it gets them in the coaches dog house, and if your talent isn't a cut above then no sense in dealing with attitudes.
Not to say any of these players had attitudes, but in D-line case we are now stacked.
A suspect with carter he took stacey coley advance over him not quite well attitude wise. This we can not change

There sure are a lot of Gator and Nole posters responding to this post. No surprise these guys live to troll. Get a life people. Go Canes!

Once again the gaytard trolls like sunny delight have reared their ugly heads. Players leaving or being asked to leave isn' t a big deal. College football is a business and always has been . Attrition will take place in all college football programs. Our defensive coordinator does need to show significant improvment or be shown the door. While he did lack personnel some of his play calling was questionable. Remember the end of the Virginia game......

Most of you naysayers are biased, immature, stupid, and simply don't know crap about college football!
I have known well several top college coaches and Al Golden stacks up well in every category! He is smart, dedicated, dynamic, good with the press, good developer on talent, and has great perseverance.
With the hand he was dealt, he has been fabulous!
Many of you over- react about players leaving without knowing any of the facts!
If he stays, he will bring the U back to national prominence.

0% Nole posters on this blog, 100% Gators fans.

That's because for several years there was a UF blog on this website and not a FSU blog.

And so the fake internet rivalry that has nothing to do with football is all UF-UM.

That's how you can tell this blog has nothing to do with college football, there are 0 comments about Florida State, UM's rival.

Poor Nole feels neglected! Maybe its because the Canes Play UF first. There is plenty of time before the Canes play the Noles. So at this point, its all about the Canes upsetting the Gators at Sun Life!

dont believe the gator about the NCAAs maximum damage goal against the canes. Thats a stupid post

And D- What doees that stand for DOOOSH? D-ILDO lover? D-esperately seeking recognition?

None of yoru posts or opinions matter. Ok we get it your no a cane- what a tool.

As far as Jontavius is concerned- Showw me one program that doesnt have some kind of attriion. Please,

This dont mean squat- And Manny and Susan keeping tabs of that is because of the fact that they are horrible journalists and have nothing else to talk about

Go to the sun sentinel if you all want good journalism, Good stories about Miami.

And by the way, a couple of Sun sentinel spportwriters pick UM to win at least ten

I predict the following:

If Miami's D is slightly improved- They win 9
Modertaley improved--- They win 11
Absoultely great improvement- They will be in the BCS talk

JIM GALLO, YOU ARE A MORON & A "HATER".....PLEASE DO US (REAL FANS OF THE "U")ALL A HUGE FAVOR & GO AWAY! BY THE WAY, GFY!!
