Hurricanes football roster (updated Thursday) has 11 new scholarship players, including QBs Kaaya and Rosier, 2 new walk-ons -- & 2 deleted from roster

The Miami Hurricanes football team had its roster updated Thursday, with 11 new scholarship players, two walk-ons -- and two deletions.

The deletions: scholarship cornerback Larry Hope, who would have been a redshirt freshman in 2014; and walk-on quarterback Garrison Lassiter, the former minor-league baseball player with the New York Yankees organization who gave up baseball to come to college and give football a try. 

A UM spokesman said he had no additional information on Hope and Lassiter. Hope played in two games last season and had three tackles. Lassiter never played.

Here are the new 11 (and their jersey numbers), taking summer classes and getting ready for fall ball:

No. 7: S Marques Gayot of Lake Worth Park Vista Community High.

No. 9: DE Chad Thomas of Miami Booker T. Washington.

No. 12: QB Malik Rosier of Mobile, Ala., Faith Academy.

No. 15: QB Brad Kaaya of West Hills, Calif., Chaminade-Madonna.

No. 22: DB Kiy Hester of Wayne, N.J., DePaul Catholic.

No. 57: DE Mike Smith of Miami Northwestern.

No. 68: OL Nick Linder of Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas.

No. 82: WR Tyre Brady of Homestead South Dade.

No. 92: DL Courtel Jenkins of Wayne, N.J., DePaul Catholic. 

No. 95: DL Anthony Moten of Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas.

No. 44: DE Demetrius Jackson of Miami Booker T. Washington.

Here are the walk-ons:

No. 16: P Justin Vogel by way of UF and before that, Tampa Berkeley Prep.

No. 24: K Michael Badgley of Summit, N.J. High.

No. 43: FB Tyler Odems of Manassas, Va., by way of Dean JC (I'm told he didn't play) & Osbourn Park High. 

Practice expected to begin Aug. 5th.

Where are these idiots whinning about Golden recruiting northern players and not south fla players? Nice to see chad Thomas in school. That was a great steal.

Interesting mock of new stadium downtown.

As is, tt clearly has the space to be a little bigger and if the basin is "filled" correctly, I wonder if it wouldn't be possible to have underground parking or recessed lower bowl. Clearly there would be space to have 40k seats the []_[] desires and if this land is to be used, one could argue it should be maximized for the public's enjoyment with more than one sporting franchise/club calling it home. I like the idea of the long side on the bay to create nice site-lines, but if I were the county/city I would mandate the stadium be sharable with the []_[]. All parties would be winners. This is where Donna leans on the city and we as Floridians make our voices heard loud and clear. Also the sloping green area behind the stadium creates a potential waterfront concert venue as well.

Agreed. 40,000 seats with half of UM home games played there should be the mandate.
UM needs to step up also with a fundraising campaign to make a small contribution to costs of stadium.

u had ur chance to joined the MIGHTY S.E.C. ... u ran from it...

GATORS- 7 -- S. CAROLINA- 2 ... GATORS Guaranteed of Top-8 Seed...

Well atleast u showed ur trUe colors against Geaorgia Tech today and are now assurred of NO CHANCE to host a SUPER REGIONAL unlike the MIGHTY GATORS... So u can now hope n pray that the GATORS will bow out of the BEST Tourney going, but they'll just rest up with their Top-8 seed already in hand... Hey, maybe u'll get Mississippi Valley St., AlabUmmer St and FA or IU in ur Regional... But even if u happen to luck ur way into a Super Regional, THE TITLETOWN GATORS will be happy to []_[]sher u out of Omaha just like the many years recently...

Yeah well one thing is for sure however they end up, it'll sure as hell be better than your Gators, lol.

Canes up 2-0 bottom of 3rd.

Where is the game cola? I can't find it on TV....I have dish network. Maybe that's why.

Canes lose again3-2 wow sad after a great season.

ppppphhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffttttttttttttttt...

that's the sound of the air fartn out of hottest team in the countrys balloon... u played 2 top-25 teams in ur last 30 games. this is the result...

Sorry Clemson - 3 -- Sorrier u - 2 ... OOhh fer 2.

but since u and the dummasse acc play round robin u get a chance to go 0-3 in the acc tourney tomorrow... looose to duke and u just might be traveling to a regional. SUPER REGIONAL hosting is a b[]_[]st !!!

lemme guess... it was the umpires fault riieet ?

GATORS ADVANCE !!! Guaranteed of Top-8 Seed and SUPER REGIONAL HOSTS !!!

RANKED AHEAD of u in every poll.

again....

u had ur chance to joined the MIGHTY S.E.C. ... u ran from it...

AAAaaaaaahhhhhh, was a GREAT MAuI SURFS UP DAY !!! Warm Tropical Breezes... GATORS WIN BIG, Clinch TOP-8 SEED ... u looose, fall to a 2 seed and traveling to a regional ... a beautiful Lahaina Beach SuNSET with a VICTORY Beer n Cigar in each hand with Hawaiian Polynesian women sitting on each of my knees and massaging both my shoulders...

I was busy... now what did u clUcks say about the umpires?

Our starting qb has arrived.

not good that we have to rely on an incoming true freshman to be our starting qb. Golden's been here 4 years now and that's really where we are at? Well, if Olsen doesn't work out, I guess it is what it is.

Johnny c . why has everyone forgotten about Ryan Williams also. I know relying on a redshirt freshman isn't great but at least he has learned the system for a year. No way kaaya walks in this late and starts . Having a redshirt freshman worked out pretty good for FSU so who's to say?

Whose the the stroke victim ur u ... not as cool as me u ... Aloha clUcks | May 22, 2014

KevinOlsen will play two games and then Ryan Williams will start afterwards-

Will be tough for Olsen to beat Louisville at Louisville so we go 1-1, maybe 2-1 and Williams comes in.

ohnny c . why has everyone forgotten about Ryan Williams also.???????????????????????????????????

Duhhhhhhhhhhhh
Could it be cause he is hurt
Maybe it is because he can't play cause he is hurt
Or is it because he is out cause he is hurt

So a very pedestrian player like Williams was your best choice at QB
The red shirt all hyped QB, stunk up the Under Armor game, hit the keg, hit the tree
Then he stunk up the Spring Game
hope they took away the keg and the tree this time.
Now you have the second coming of Peyton Manning and Russel Wilson as true freshmen come in
If that is so why worry?
Cause it aint so?
Well at least you have another good punter come in courtesy of the Gator.
Maybe he will be drafted in the 3rd round next year to continue your Punter U tradition.
How's the beisbol team doing coke head cane?
I pity them fools.


u played 2 top-25 teams in ur last 30 games. this is the result...

We must really suk then, since we took the series from you BUMS. We did fall apart at the tourney though can't argue that.

Wow what a wasted regular season for the baseball team, win the regular season championship and loose 2 in a row at the ACC tournament. And, who calls for a bunt with runners on 2nd and 3rd and 2 outs? Granted the batter laid down a good bunt, but just a hit would have scored at least 1, maybe 2 runs. That would have changed the whole game, especially on the Clemson side, they may have changed pitchers. With coaching like that, the U may not renew Morris' contract, which would not hurt my feelings, he was a good coach before he got divorced, now with a new wife and kids, it seems he has lost the drive. Hope Gino sticks around, and hopefully when Morris hangs up his cleats the U gives Gino the job. Good Luck in the regionals then on to the super regionals and maybe even the CWS.

The game was on dish fox sports net

Yep our play in the tourney was a head scratcher, as we were the hottest team in the nation coming in, and BOOM, they wheels fell off. Well hopefully we'll do better in Regionals, and hopefully still get to host.

It's an unfortunate situation the lack of fans at Dolphin Stadium for Canes games. Hopefully it all comes to pass-and UM has it's own place to play! Once UM returns to glory---I'll be laughing at all the bandwagon fans trying to get tickets to a game. Charles Barkley is right about Miami fans--they $vcK!

Posted by: u are u ... crunchtime crappy oohh fer

Wow. There must be nothing going on in Maui. How boring that the blog Pig finds enough time to post here non-stop. Is it Maui? Or is it the Maui Lakes Trailerpark in Alachua County?

No matter what the Canes did in the tourney, they will go to a regional, play the Gatr Trash, and beat them.

Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

Happens all the time. ONe thing is constant: you Gatr maggots can't beat the Canes. Can't do it. Just can't.

Blog Pig. Same as he ever was.

I WANT THAT SPOT! WE SHOULD ALL LOVE THAT PARCEL OF LAND...THE U MUST GET THEIR PIECE OF THAT PIE...ANY IDEA HOW THAT WOULD AFFECT RECRUITING?!!!

THEY WILL ALL COME THEY WILL ALL WIN AND THEY WILL ALL PLAY ON SUNDAYS

GOCANEZZZZZZ

Perfect example of average cane know nothing stupid post.
Since 2008 the Gators hold a 17 - 7 advantage against the canes including bouncing them off every Regional they have played in that time frame.
If the canes make a Regional they will have to travel. If they travel to Gainesville history shows the Gators will bounce them again.
Now this is a dose of reality based on fact, not some delusional cane make belief crapola.
"Wash, Rinse, repeat" this cluck.

And how many national titles in baseball to the gayturds have?

The wheels off the BANDWAGON bus because cola cane and his BANDWAGON henchGOONS all jumped on board and added too much NEGATIVE Karma and what not. Ouch
Oh, it's possible Jimbo's hardball team will NOT host a SUPER-EIGHT regional. hUh

I'm excited about the new class coming in.. The U is now bringing in BALLERS.. Yes I would love to see more kids from West Palm & down stay home but lets face it those guys go to the highest bidder(SEC). They been getting paid since pop Warner.. I get it.. I was that Guy.. Go Canes!!

Tough to beat Louisville?! We have more talent than Louisville right now, how are we counting them as a loss? They founded us in December, now we are writing it off as a loss.

This is a get back game.

Williams won't make it back, that's just a bad break. My money is on Kaaya.

So not true. Miami never had a chance to join sec. It's common knowledge that florida would veto any florida school going to sec, same with georgia with gt, and south carolina with clemson. they don't want teams from same state in there conference. It's been widely known for years that if sec tried to add miami that florida would veto it or outright leave sec to avoid miami.

I wouldn't bet on kayaa for one major reason. He has to get into school and then he has to learn playbook. I like his skill set but olson has the same exact talent level.
Olson will be starter this year and next summer we will get the olson kayaa battle everyone wants.

Haven't forgotten. Just unrealistic to think he'll be 100% healthy at anytime during the season and probably less than 80% to begin it. We don't need a 5th. year Senior that would be a statue in the pocket on every single 7 step drop. We'll have a Redshirt Freshman and 2- trie Freshman that will need valuable playing time for experience. Going with Williams would do nothing but stunt the growth of the kids that need it. Williams is really no better longterm than the others so why push back the learning curve of the Freshman until 2015? But realistically we have 3 QB's vyibg for the starting job. And anyone knows that if you have 2-3 QB's you really haven't got 1 QB. Olsen will be the guys until mid season with Kaaya getting spot time. Olsen will simply see and be able to react to the speed of the game already knowing the system. Kaaya's head will explode early at the speed of the game compared to H.S. Hopefully he adjusts well. But he'll get to play and has to play. Hopefully we get some Defense and blow some teams out in order for him to get those chances.

MI'm just dreading the day, and it'll come more than a few times, where Golden will play the, "We are young at some positions, especially QB, so the more they play, the more experience and better they'll get."

Bottom line, if we play hot garbage Defense like the last 3 years, it won't make much difference anyways and it'll just be another rebuilding year 4 years into this Staffs regime.

When does the Canes Baseball team play Duke? We should be ok to host a Regional. I hope. You never know with the NCAA, they don't really like 3 State teams to host 3 Regionals. FSU and Florida are both seeded locks. If that's the case, i'd just assume head out of State as a #2 seed and see if this team can Buck the hell up. With the 3 starters they have, there's now way they can't rip of 5 straight Wins and make Ohmaha as an underdog. Just got to field n get far more timely hitting.

Winning cures ALL... The CANES just need to win some of those signature games this year. The HOME ones are the WINS we want.. Learning to win on the road will be a growing thing we as fans gotta let play out. Realistic EXPECTATIONS!!!!

21-16. The final statement.

WOW! The Huskies just scored again on that so-called #1 seed.

Yeah whatever you say Flavor Flav, huh, duhhhhhh.

Larry Hope is a very good football player and comes from a great family, I wish him the best wherever he ends up!

I know Larry and his family and they are really fine people. Anyone who says otherwise doesn't know these folks. I have seen some pretty ignorant things being said that convinces me these people don't know this kid or his family!

Two recruits from the same high school - NEW JERSEY THAT IS. 'Nuff said.
