VIDEO: Catching up with 2015 Canes recruit WR Emonee Spence of Flanagan

Last week we filmed our post-National Signing Day video at Flanagan High School and I got a chance to catchup with 2015 Canes recruit and star receiver Emonee Spence.

Here is what he had to say about being at Junior Day and the chances he'll sign with UM a year from now.

Spence by the way measured in at 6-2, 181 pounds at the Nike Sparq Combine Sunday in North Miami. He was clocked in the 40-yard dash at 4.75 seconds and had a Sparq rating of 77.76.

Here is a link to the unofficial results.

Who cares....Stop ruining these kids with this kind of crap coverage as a junior. Give me kids that bleed Orange and Green!

Forget the rest....

I agree, let the kid enjoy high school.

He beat Tebow out of the closet.

I remember when Tebow slaughtered the candy Canes. It made me cry in my tampon.

My name is my name, son.

and you fools lost to al golden and mark donofrio...lol

Lol. Whoever was posting under canesjunkies name just got destroyed.
As much as I like beating gator poon, muschamp gave up 4 turnovers to the worst defensive coordinator in the game.
Priceless.

Losing to golden and dno is almost as embarrassing as losing to ga southern.

He's slower than almost every LB in college. Is that 4.75 a typo? Hopefully they meant 4.57 40

To be honest, I only like the candy canes because my boyfriend would kick me out of the house if I didn't.

[]_[] is first to offer Nick Tiano. Interesting skillset for size. Clearly an athlete and not what we are used to seeing under center at Miami. I like. Looks like more athletic version of R. Williams with come escapability.

I like what Coley's is doing at the QB position.

The kid is hopefully football fast. Meaning with pads on, because 4.75 in the 40 is what our DE's back when we were good used to run.

u go ahead and take a gUess

.

Yeah, who wants to sign just the best 4 and 5 STAR kids when u can stockpile a team full of 2-3 star kids and develop them into National Championship Teams riiieeet ?

yeah stockpile all those 4-5 stars like the turds have done and still finish 4-8

I guess thats what happens whena plumber is your head coach

We are who we are....the dudes who beat you.

Lol u r u.....how many stars die ga southern have? And they won with a better coach.

u are u.....ride bama and lsu's coatails much? Also about your gallo list....check your numbers on those recruiting classes. Unless you are using multiple sites to put your numbers together. Your screenname should be "I am skewed"!

4.75 40? I don't like where this going. This is not Temple football. We are use to QB's with average arms throwing to WR's with blazing speed.Unless this kid is another Anquan Boldin (4.7 40), we need to get back to recruiting speed.

Stealing IDs and attacking Canes fans, literally obsessing about someone that calls into a radio show for godssake, nothing new for this obsessed trailer donkey with fat momma issues.

Look, Gilbert Grape, go find a new trailer to roost in, your time here is done, just like the gatrs are done. You are afraid to face us on the field, afraid to face a fan in person, and afraid to go into your momma's room because it is bedpan changing time.

Ok Reggie Research, now go see who has the MOST players in the NFL, and get back to me, and by the way, it's funny how you have to mention the SEC and not your Gators, because you're the BOTTOM of the barrel in your OWN conference, but as you say, 'u are what u are', and by the way the ACC WON the TITLE, so you're NOT No. 1. LMAO!!!!!

The Gators won that game 26-3. Hardly a slaughter, like the 41-16 beat down that Ken Dorsey dished out.

Man, I couldn't get out of that craphole Trailerville fast enough.

SEC? Naaah, just ridin' Bama and LSU's jock is all.

Gatrs suck. Lost to Ga Southern. Got pounded by Miami.

Usc had most players on nfl rosters in 2013.

Right and Miami was right behind them, my point to the idiot (u are what u are) was that we have more than his Gators.

SEC: Top recruiting classes. Most NFL draft picks.

But SEC loses to Ga. Southern. And Miami. And FSU.

Oh, well, Gatr Trash.

You all dont realize that a high school junior that runs a 4.75 forty is realistic. Guaranteed the likes of Coley and Dorsett , when truly measured when they were juniors werent that much faster. 4.6, 4.65. Only few kids run 4.5 or below. THAT is flying. for real. Sammy Watkins didnt run below a 4.55 or so. And he wn the state 100 and placed second in the 200 meters

Canes went to FSU and trounced them on their own floor. Almost makes up for the two previous close losses.

For a team that is rebuilding from scratch, they are doing really well. Next year's team will be back in the Top 25 at this pace...

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

they started 5 Seniors against FSU last night because the others suck. So next year they'll be in the top-25 huh with guys that didn't even get quality minutes for an under .500 and 3-8 acc 2014 team that's will probably not even make the NIT as they'll looose at least 6 of their last 10 games finishing 16-18 ?

u know as much about Basketball as u do Football.

and the football team will be 12-2 with the only losses to FSU and a New Years Bowl win riiiieeet ?

# 1 SEED GATORS !!!

^^^^^^^^^

You Gatr Trash better hope you don't meet the Ga. Southern Gatr Trash Killers in the Tourney. Ga. Southern would win without getting one rebound.

I'm not sure where you're from but 4.75, alot of us were running faster than that in junior high, let alone by the time we got to highschool. if that 4.75 is True, it's no way he'll be a top widereceiver come next year, maybe a solid tight-end which is where he would be better served if he's already 6'2 181lbs.

Sure Calvin- if you had Uncle Luke holding the sto p watch. No one at the juniro level runs below a 4.6 40. Unless theyre on the 100 meter track team, and even then that dont make them football players.

Youre too used to your buddies tellin you how fast you were bwhen in reality you were actually 0.3 seconds slower.

Real 40 times:

Devin Hester 4.45
Jerry Rice 4.57
Anquan Boldin 4.6
Travis Benjamin 4.4

Graig Cooper---- 4.67

Cant get much better than those

THE CANES HAD 11 ESPN 300 PLAYERS in this past signing class, and 2 JUCO 100 Players on Rivals, both DT's.

So 13 of the 26 were highly ranked, and for the golden bashers, we finished all 3 stars or higher, and when goldie offered some in camps last yr, some were 2 star kids, which eventually all got bumped up. So what that says is they can evaluate talent/

Courtel Jenkins went from a 2 star in NJ when we offered to a 3 star and #2 DT in the entire state, and we got 3 top 50 state of NJ Players, the best QB in CAlifornia, and 11 ESPN 300 2 JUCO 100 with only 26 spots, and REMEMBER, SANCTIONS LOOMING UNTIL NOVEMBER

This years class in 2014 is the kind of class you can build a program around .

1 of the best QBs in the country
4/5 star RB Yearby - Trayonne Gray added depth
3 All American O Lineman
2 ESPN 300 WR's Langham and Berrios with Depth like Tyree Brady and t
2 GOOD TE's -Herndon from the Norcross program in GA and the Jersey Kid NDJOKU
Not bad of a haul on OFfense

4 HIGHLY RANKED DT's 2 Juco 100 Guys, 4 Star Moten, 3 star Courtel Jenkins who was #2 DT In Jersey on rivals
3 STUD DE's all on the ESPN 300 Chad Jackson,Demetrious Jackson, Trent Harris

NICE LB HAUL -ESPN 300 Darrion Owens, Michael Smith From NWestern High who Scout bumped to a 4 star, Early Enrolee kid From GA Juwon Young, and the MLB highly recruited 3 star MCray kid from ELY. Nice crop of LB's to added depth of Grace/Kirby/Perryman/Figueroa

1 of the top Safeties in the Country Kiy Hester and ALl American, top 5 overall player in the state of NJ

6 Ft 2 Corner 3 Star Ryan Mayers fron Nwestern who can cover the big TEs

THAT IS SOME SOLID DEPTH -- Maybe we redshirt 1 DE and 1-2 LB's and 1 of the 7 lineman

#10 CLASS ON ESPN and no lower rank than 12, WITH sanctions most of the year.........NICE JOB

Watch out for Trayonne Gray....Mark my words, this young man will emerge as a star running back!

Also watch Darrion Owens a beast in the making! JMO Far better than their star ratings would indicate.

10 plus wins this yr.go canes.

39-6
