Sights and sounds of Hurricanes' first day of college life

It's a day that every college football player will forever cherish and remember -- their first with their program of choice.

UM welcomed 13 members of its 2015 recruiting class and one walk-on Sunday as they get set to begin the Summer A session at UM on Monday.

The newcomers join five other members of the class that enrolled early and arrived at UM for the spring semester. Those were safety Jaquan Johnson, defensive end Scott Patchan, linebacker Charles Perry, tight end Jerome Washington and lineman Jahair Jones.

Running back Mark Walton, expected to break into the backfield rotation as a freshman and eventually become the feature back of the offense, walking into the Schwartz Center in the morning.

 

Some of the larger newcomers -- offensive linemen Brendan Loftus (Tallahassee Godby), Hayden Mahoney (Malvern Prep in Pennsylvania), Tyler Gauthier (Venice), Tyree St. Louis (IMG Academy) and defensive tackle Ryan Fines (IMG) -- are seen in this short video:

Not included is offensive tackle Bar Milo, a teammate of starting quarterback Brad Kaaya in high school at West Hills (Cal.) Chaminade. He arrived later Sunday night.

Robert Knowles, the safety out of Edison, takes the cake as the incoming freshman with the best hair.
