National Signing Day: Canes live recruiting updates

Good morning it's National Signing Day. 

Fax machines will begin receiving signed National Letters of Intent beginning at 7 a.m.

The Hurricanes have 26 commitments: nine early enrollees, one signee waiting to enroll and another 16 who have pledged to sign with them today. We will track all the action in this Cover-It-Live blog -- including when signed letters of intent become official at UM.

The Twitter accounts for 16 of UM's commitments have also been linked to the live blog. Those are: RB Joseph Yearby, WR Braxton Berrios, DT Calvin Heurtelou, DE Chad Thomas, DT Anthony Moten, DE Demetrius Jackson, DB Kai Hester, QB Brad Kaaya, TE Chris Herndon, DE Mike Smith, DB Marques Gayot, WR Darrell Langham, TE David Njoku, DT Michael Wyche, QB Malik Rosier and WR Tyre Brady.

The blog will feature Twitter feeds from UM's official account (@hurricanesports), those of our reporters and others out on the scene to cover announcements live, and links to other blog items, video and analysis as it comes in.

While this blog will remain at the top of today's blog there will be individual news items posted throughout the day below it. You will see links to those items in the Cover-It-Live feed.

Below this I'll include a timeline of events as the day progresses.

#Canes reportedly swing and miss at Immokalee CB J.C. Jackson as he opts to stick with #UF http://bit.ly/Ly9NKh
Poor fellow, he chose.... poorly.

UMCanes02, which tweet? The one in the live updates with just boxes?

Already have reeled in 20 of the 26 on our list.


And with Kaaya saying he has signed, that is 21, and proof that Rick and his other IDs were wrong, wrong, wrong.

Top five #Canes recruits in my opinion: 1. Chad Thomas, 2. Brad Kaaya, 3. Kc McDermott, 4. Joe Yearby, 5. Trevor Darling
I would put Moten ahead of Darling, but still a solid list.

4-8 record and a dismal offense, transfers left and right - ALL GATOR
F.U. loses, 21-16, to the REAL []_[].

Glad uf got some players because they need them. 21-16, and we aren't even good. What's that make u?

Valentine is a miss but it seems like we did all we could.
