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."

You guys are out of control with the conspiracy theories about Golden having that link deleted. I just checked and it's still there. You guys are giving Golden too much credit... he didn't invent the Internet and he doesn't work for NSA.

Above is the link to Jon Drummond's tweets about Duke and Tracy telling recruits not to come to Miami.

Never forgert Willie Williams
Never forget Jacorry harris
Never forgert Bryce and Arthur Brown
Never forget Seantrel Henderson
Never forget Marcus Forston
Never forget Nevin Shapiro

You all are idiots

So some kids decommmitted. WHO THE ))) CARES

Whoever wrote this article is just as bad as the morons onhere that criticize Miami

" Not exactly humming"??? What is you stupid???????

Theyre in the top 10 on all major sites. SO GTFOH with your dumba55ness

"Blinding ignorance does mislead us. O! Wretched mortals, open your eyes!"
Leonardo da Vinci


In other words, y'all ( Golden and D'Onofrio loyalists and what not. ) have been BLINDED by the murky, dim, FADING Golden light! Nothing more, nothing less. dUh


Why would a conference be able to determine who gets into your institution? That rule is senseless since it doesn't apply to the general student population. What purpose does the rule serve the conference, the school or the kid? What is it about white men power and control. If they are writing the rules they are gonna all agree to give themselves, their organization as much control over others as possible. Sorry Wyche, the school recruited you, you trusted what they were telling you, you choose the U based on their words, you signed a Scholie, the school accepted you. But, a while back a group of White men strengthened their power over all ACC schools that were members of the conference they controlled by finding the least an totally unnecessary singular sub-sectional rule to be able to control and even deny accepted junior college athletes into their member institutions. Its their world we just live in it.

I wouldn't be too worried about 4 and 5 star recruit
designations. Many have failed once they entered college.
Russell Maryland and Vinnie T were never given a "star"
rating.

GALLO STOP REGERGITATING THE SAME POSTS!!!! ITS SUCH CRAP. YOU MAKE A LIST AND YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE 100% TRUE REASONS THESE PLAYERS ARE GONE. YOUR TRYING TO PIECE TOGETHER THINGS FROM THE INTERNET AND SECOND HAND SOURCES. YOU THEN SAVE THE POSTS YOU HAVE ALREADY DONE AND REPOST LIKE 5 TIMES. THE LIST IS OLD AND ITS TIME TO MOVE ON TO SOMETHING NEW.
