First 15 minutes of Day 1 of 2015 Miami Hurricanes fall camp in the books

Fifteen minutes, nice to have known you!

The Hurricanes got going for Day 1 of Fall camp in their nifty, new Adidas practice uniforms and the enthusiasm usually exhibited at this point -- 85 degrees or not (Hey, that's cool for this time of year).

Everyone was out there, as far as we're told, so that's the first good news.

*** Offensive tackle Kc McDermott, who will be playing this season for the first time since knee surgery to repair a torn MCL in his left knee, looks large and fit. He wants that left tackle spot. He's listed as 6-6 and 315 pounds.


*** Newest scholarship quarterback Evan Shirreffs, who is wearing jersey No. 16 (along with punter Justin Vogel -- hey, there's no punting competition storyline this camp), looks mighty lean. He's listed as 6-5 and 195.

Team huddle and cheer time. Do you notice who is in the foreground watching this all? That's former Canes center Joel Rodriguez, who is the new director of player development
