WR Worton not taking official visit to UM; JUCO DT Wyche de-commits

The Hurricanes aren't exactly humming down the homestretch of this recruiting season.

Although it was nice to hear 2014 quarterback Brad Kaaya will be sticking with his commitment, the Hurricanes got some bad news Thursday whenJUCO defensive tackle Michael Wyche announced on his Twitter account he was de-committing from the program.

Wyche, a 6-4, 315-pound standout from East Los Angeles Junior College, had signed with UM last month but was being delayed entry because he was appealing an obscure ACC rule that requires players be enrolled three semesters at the same junior college. As our Barry Jackson wrote on his Sports Buzz blog, Wyche could have stayed committed to UM and enrolled here in May but apparently has chosen not to, at least at this point.

With U.S. Army All-American and local standout Travonte Valentine leaning heavily toward LSU, UM currently has three defensive tackles commitments: four-star St. Thomas Aquinas standout Anthony Moten, three-star junior college transfer Calvin Heurteleu (already enrolled) and three-star N.J. prospect Courtel Jenkins.

With only three returning defensive tackles in Olsen Pierre, Earl Moore, and Corey King, the Hurricanes badly need immediate help.

> Hurricanes offensive coordinator James Coley made a late push to get an official visit this coming weekend from South Dade receiver C.J. Worton, an All-Dade 1st team selection and former Florida State commitment. But it now appears that won't be happening.

"I’m finished with the visits," Worton told The Miami Herald. "For one, it’s my birthday today and there are a lot of people I'm going to be seeing. Two, my dad won’t be able to make it too. I wanted to take the trip with him. So, it looks like I won’t be going up. I haven’t ruled out the possibility of going onSunday just to go talk to Coach Coley.

"But there’s not really a big chance that plays a big factor. I just always enjoy his company and have a really good connection with him. I'll probably just go see him, hear what he has to say -- if even I even go Sunday."

Worton said although many people are predicting him to go to Florida he's completely torn between the Gators and West Virginia.

"I don’t have a leader," Worton said. "I’m torn between the two honestly. I love the schools, both coaching staffs. I love every aspect of each coaching staff. It’s going to be very hard. I’m going to tell the coaches either Sunday or Monday of my decision. Eventually someone has to have their feelings hurt. I don’t want to leave it up until Signing Day. I feel that’s disrespectful. Whatever school I choose will be Sunday or Monday and then I’ll go announce at school."

Hat to break this to 'Canes fans, but West Virginia is not any lesser of a University than Miami. That program has raided SoFla like several other elite programs. Get use to it and lose the undeserved sense of accomplishment.

What makes you think you're breaking news to us dude? Raiding SFla?? Easy there Cleveland, you've got ONE player, and maybe a couple in the last few years, WHOOOPIE Da DOOPIE DO. We have enough talent in SFla to go around.

WVU has to come to Florida to find talent, but they are a better program?

I don't think WVU is raiding S. Fla.

UM can't compete with the facilities and moneys that major State schools such as Texas, Alabama, LSU etc. etc. Those schools have private plains to recruit, all kinds of pretty facilities and boosters that are more than generous to help out, if you know what I mean.
We need to do a better job at keeping the tri county talent home. Concentrate on those kids and sell the fact that you are away at a major academic private school yet a short car ride from family and friends that U represent and consider U a celebrity in your own community.
We need to tap into the influence of Coaches, ex players and community influence to keep these kids here, if we are to compete with the big boys.

Sony - .Coach Mike Rhump ex Cane National Champ
Roudolph - decommitted , Coach Steve Walsh ex Cane National Champ
Lane - related to Coach Barrows
Valentine- decommitted
Bethel - decommitted
Harris - his two brothers attended UM
Cook - Brother plays BB at the U

If we could have kept half of these guys we would be in the run for top recruiting class in the Country.
Relationships are huge in business. We need to use ours and close the deal with our So. Fla. talent.


Manny Navaro is the biggest detriment to the Canes recruiting class. He is constantly looking for any type of negative story on UM. Would love to have a Miami beat writer that really loved cane sports.

Go Canes,
Funny, I felt the opposite about Manny throughout the season. He only flipped on the UM AD line after the AG to PSUgate.

It is rather funny how the breathless haters are in overdrive right now.

I am not a huge fan of AG, but the pure hatred on display is heartwarming.

US against the WORLD! #BringIt #CantStopTheStorm #HateButYouFollow #StormTroopers #Dale

^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Actually Manny and the rest of the media went easy on AG the 1st 3 years he was here. Then, like beed said up there, the penn st weekend randevu. The Monday non denial that it happened. The continuity over change for the putrid defensive staff. True canes fans like manny have had enough of coach cliche playing us like fools. Acting like we don't know why Hurricane football looks like!

The real detriment to defensive recruiting is getting 500+ yards and 30+ points hung on you for more than half the games since the Mac staff show up in Coral Gables. The when isht goes bad the head coach blames the player covering for his soft @&& BFF and scheme. After he says the players have bought in, done everything they've asked, went thru utuff, matured, and know the system!

The tape don't lie!!

Then after fsu throttled us in 2012 he say "they're a lil ahead of us right now", only to have that margin WIDENED IN 2013!

Then the embarrassing losses to DUKE, vtech, and l'ville! Mind you that l'ville game was the 1st bowl game in 3 years that they were "excited to play", had weeks to prepare, but game out lookin as if it was the spring game. Totally smacked upside the head like the punter did Artie Burns. But only 2-3 goon types wanted to fight back.

0'fer vs teams that finished rank in the top 25. His signiture win is verses a 4-8 turd team!

Isht is gettin real and hotter than August in lil hati on the Mac crew and it's about time!

AG has had the biggest budget a coach has ever had at Miami, more hc experience than the previous 3 hc but the same or lesser result!

Forget nsd, the spring game, utuff 7 on 7's. I'm ready for Labor Day in a hostle environment, against a team that embarrassed you on national tv, with players that could have been at Miami, with a coach that'll pull out the ugly stick and beat you with it again!

Sak up, man up.

Worton we dont need, any WR stupid enough to go to the gators we dont want.

A Baller at QB is all we need. Look folks the same Okie team that Lit up Bama lost to unranked Texas earlier in the year with a different QB.
We get a Baller and we are back, untill then nada

this obscure ACC rule of 3 consec. semesters is annoying; time to consider bolting this basketball conf?

Nash,
Yeah, I really don't give a S%^t what the coaches and media say in the run up to the 1st game.

Empty rhetoric, all of it.

I do think Petrino is gonna beat us with the ugly stick. I think we have a ROUGH start.

BUT! like Canes said, and Sunny Dee did too - it's all about the QB situation developing and OC Coley getting to discard Fisch's playbook and Terms for his own...

We can all hope or rag on the QBs in line, but noone really knows how that's gonna pan out. I am on the hope train about the QBs not being Wright, JH, or SM, except for the first half of the season.

The rest of the offense personnel looks solid.

Defense? No hope whatsoever. Between player turnover losses, continuity in coaching, and new recruits and JC trannys, expect more of the same.

5-7 to 8-4; 2014. It's okay. Silver Linings must be found. hunker down, B$%^hes.

Public enemy #2, Clint Hurt tried to warn Goldie and crew on how hard it was to get jucos in.

But its ironic that U can't post unless I have. What does that make U? Focus on yourself and what makes U tick, because currently its all me.

Again, we know who and what U don't like, but what do U believe in other than the obvious most propagated groupthink? Everyone is a moron and idiot to U, but you've never expressed an original thought once, since posting here.

Quote above is really hard to understand. What in the heck is this kids trying to say besides I aint coming to Miami?

The ultimate sidelines heckler.

Besides, Go Canes,
Manny and Susan CAN'T lead the charge on exposing anything negative about AG and the program, even if they wanted to. They's gotta eat.

They can't weigh in any misgivings until there's enough corroborating outside evidence/chatter to simply "report" on it. Can't fault them that.

If they were indy bloggers, not a Major publication's beat writing staff, they'd probably be more inclined to rip away. We got plenty of those and they do just fine.

you're an idiot --manny or susan aren't paid my UM --they're paid by MH. if you want only sycophantic No-D lovefest opinions --go to canespace.
so a reporter shouldn't report the news bc you don't like it?

Go Canes,Go Canes,Go Canes...siiiiiiiigh. Name one thing that Manny said wasn't true...ONE!

FWIW.... former Cane JUCO defensive tackle WYCHE was absolutely the BETTER recruit than DT Huertelou ( Would have started for the Hurricanes. )!

And, nothing against Scottsdale JC Huertelou-sp, but the Arizona JC teams absolutely AREN'T stronger than the Cali JUCO competition and what not. hUh

Matter of fact, Goldie nd' Marky Mark WERE hoping and praying that DT WYCHE would be a Cane, but the A.C.C and the University of Miami, Florida gave Wyche a SCREW JOB and stuck it up his U Know What, all the way. dUh

So I don't blame him one iota for giving Golden and D'Onofrio the MIDDLE-FINGER and what not!!

Seriously, I absolutely DON'T BELIEVE this good ol' boy, bUbba is a Hurricane loyalist and what not.

But I do give him KUDO'S for his good ol' boy BRAND of H-A-T-E! hUh

Because that gkc is ONLY WORTHY of attacking FREE THINKING, OBJECTIVE, STAUNCH, LOYAL Miami football fan-dom. dUh

Duh you are a fraud, a lousy predictor and a Cane hater.

SERIOUSLY lmfao... because those FOOLS at that canespace are CRUCIFYING and LYNCHING Cane RB Johnson and CB Howard. smh

Simply because THE DUKE/TRACY be SPEAKING TRUTH to POWER regarding Thee Carpetbagger's1

And believe it not y'all Goldie nd' Marky Mark apologists and sycophants and LAPDOG's! THE DUKE will bolt for the N.F.L after the 2014 season concludes!!!

Posted by: GatorKillerCane | January 31, 2014 at 01:23 PM
!!!!!!!!!!

If WHOLE-HEARTEDLY agreeing with Mr. Warren Sapp indicates I'm a Miami Hurricane " hater. "

Then so be it, FOOL!!!

Of the three returning Miami defensive tackles, only Olson is the legitimate starter. Ouch. And that indicates Golden and D'Onofrio's defense will be the LAUGHING STOCK of the a.c.c., again. hUh

And please tell us how MIAMI gave him the 'screw job'? The ACC requires 3 semesters at same JC, NOT us. He could've stayed committed and enrolled in May, but chose not too. So how is that giving the middle finger and what not?

Your posts not only don't make any sense, but have as much logic as Kim Kardashian.

Almost all high NFL draft candidates leave after 3 years. Why wouldn't they? Some people aspire to earn a living and get out of Mom's locked basement.

These GBLs (Golden Boot Lickers) AMAZE! me. They want it BOTH! ways. IE...they'll sit there and tell you that the offense improved, but SOOOOOON! as Golden throws Coley under the bus, then "OH!, it's Coley's fault!"

LMAO!

Un-FREAKIN'!-believable!

What blog are you reading from bro, lol?? Other than then usual multiple screen namers talking about how bad our D is, you very seldom see someone ripping the O.

Well, I guess ERIC WINSTON is a Cane " hater " akin to M-E, too. dUh

Because now, former Hurricane great OT Winston ABSOLUTELY agrees with one WARREN SAPP, but me, also. Go bloody figures'.

Again, even a BLIND man can see that Golden and D'Onofrio's defense is PATHETIC!! Yeah, yeah Randy's player's are to BLAME for what ails the Cane defense the past three seasons. dUh

In other words, a BLIND man could do the Braile numbers regarding Miami's TEAM DEFENSE the past three seasons and come up the absolute CONCLUSION, that the Hurricane defense has been the LAUGHING STOCK of the A.C.C. the past TWO SEASONS. hUh

Jesus H. Christ some of you people are some freakin' drama queens. Neither Duke nor T. Howard were telling recruits to stay away from UM. Wyche got dinged by that odd ACC rule. He wanted to enroll now, not in May. Worton decommited from National Champion FSU so what does that tell you about where his head is at? Valentine is a big loss (presumably to LSU) but UM is still reeling in a top 10 class, so calm down ladies.

Once again we lose 2 DT in the same day, How freaking stupid is Golden enrolling someone that has not met the requirements, 6 days until NSD GREAT WORK, COUNT ON THE RECRUITS YOU GET BY HOPING AND PRAYING LMAO....... GOLDEN IS PATHETIC, U IS IN THE SHITZZZZZZ

Former Miami OT Winston said that Randy LEFT Goldie nd' Marky Mark ENOUGH talent on the defensive side of the L.O.S., yet Golden and D'Onofrio PROCEEDED to DISMANTLE a LEGITIMATE Top 22 team defense in 2012. Get outta here with your WARPED facts, and what not, Weirdo!

Posted by: D | January 31, 2014 at 02:02 PM

D...notice how the GBLs don't call out Winston, but they wanna call out Luke & Sapp when they call out UM...hmmmmmmm. And why didn't anybody call out the guy at QAM, when He was RIPPIN'! Shannon to shreds on the radio.

Yeah, it's so UNBELIEVABLE that those FOOLS in that denizen of FOOL-dom ( CANESPACE ) still believe the Canes will have a TOP 40 defense in 2014 and the Canes will have EITHER a " 10-2 " or " 9-3 " season in '14. hUh

Haven't the FOOLS in canespace heard the news today. Goldie nd' Marky Mark are LOSING " game changer " DT's by the baker's dozen. Ouch!!

And believe it or not, DT WYCHE would have been a STARTER for Miami! However, Miami and the A.C.C. TOOK AWAY ANY possibility of the that happening.

And, perhaps you should do some FACT CHECKING of your own, F-O-O-L!! Because Miami NO LONGER has a TOP TEN incoming class according to THREE prep school recruiting services.

Especially after WYCHE gave Golden and D'Onofrio and the A.C.C. the MIDDLE FINGER!!!!!

But then again, you and YOUR MINIONS are good a being Goldie nd' Marky Mark BROWN NOSERS!!! Ouch.

Wyche was prolly looking for a way out and took it.

Besides if AG was the closer ppl say he is why not convince Wyche to wait till may??

Al Golden told TV..."Let me coach you."

TV's reply..."Those are BIG,DECENT words."

TV had me at "Big", but OHHHHHHHHH! was the word "decent" a LET-DOWN!

"Let me coach you"?...TFOH!

Dude EVERY team goes through this, so it's not unusual. The guy wants to get in early like a lot of kids do, so he can get a jump on learning the system, and also his classes.

Y'all Goldie nd' Marky Mark APOLOGISTS and SYCOPHANTS and ACOLYTES and most of all, LAPDOGS cease to amaze me. dUh

Because collectively, y'all remind me of the man who stumbled off a 12-story high rise downtown bUbba-ville...

and as gravity took action. This CANESPACE good ol' boy said after he fell pass each floor of said 12-story building...

SO FAR SO GOOD, SO FAR SO GOOD, SO FAR SO GOOD on his way down to the street below. dUh
