Recruiting Updates

1. After months of being committed to FAU, elite 2015 RB prospect Jordan Scarlett decommitted this morning. He also said that his top schools moving forward are Miami, South Carolina, Ohio State, and Florida State.

Scarlett's talents will be heavily pursued until NSD. SBN National Recruiting Director Bud Elliott profiled Scarlett here, and you can see his highlights below. Scarlett will be a high priority target even with Miami having 3 RBs already committed (Dexter Williams, Mark Walton, and Jordan Cronkrite). Obviously, the recruitment of these 4 players will be intertwined. This will be interesting moving forward.

2. Atlanta area OT Sage Hardin will be making his college selection tonight.

Miami is listed as a finalist for Hardin, but I would be shocked if he picked the Canes.

3. One of my favorite players in this cycle, Baton Rouge Central HS WR Terrell Chatman will be taking a visit to Miami today and tomorrow ($). This is Chatman's first visit anywhere, and he will be accompanied by his mother and grandmother. He is a very talented player, but his recruitment isn't as heavily contested as others because he missed some time as a Junior. Miami has recruited Louisiana fairly well recently, so we'll see if that trend continues. Chatman's highlights are below.

4. Can Miami keep the 2016 recruiting momentum going? Possibly. St. Thomas Aquinas WR Sam Bruce will be announcing his college destination on the 4th of July.

Bruce unofficially visited Miami yesterday with teammate Jordan Scarlett and Scarlett's cousin, S Rodrick Archer, an FAU commit. They took pictures. See below.

FOOTBALL UPDATES

1. RS Senior QB Ryan Williams has reported no setbacks in his recovery from ACL surgery, and is targeting a week 1 start, according to the Miami Herald. I think that may be a bit optimistic, but Williams is looking to former LSU QB Zach Mettenberger's 13 week recovery prior to his Pro Day as the model. We'll see if he's able to make this fast recovery.

2. Did you miss Bill Connelly's great preview on Miami? You should fix that by clicking this link.

3. Hurricanes in the NFL still making news. NFL Network just named Andre Johnson as the #21 player in their annual top 100.
