Practice starts early today, 8:20 AM. This might just help the 'Canes avoid any lightning delays.
Today is also the first day they are in full pads. So expect lots of contact!
Once again Ale gave us a nice summary chock full of images on Day 4.
Word is in the highly scrutinized QB battle, that freshman Brad Kaaya had the better day, outperforming Jake Heaps, who also had his moments.

But Kaaya still has much work to do:
When asked about Kaaya, Al Golden said "Keep doing what he's doing, be more vocal, that's something Jake Heaps is, vocal" @TheStateOfTheU— Ale Narciso (@Ale_Narciso1) August 8, 2014
Among other group that are standing out, UM's receiving corps are looking very sharp early on:
Whomever wins the QB job has no shortage of weapons to throw the ball to.
The defense as a whole has been having a nice camp. Which players have stood out you ask?
In black today: Chickillo, Owens, D. Crawford, Kirby, Harris, Moore, Perryman, A. Crawford. No longer in black: Howard, Kamalu.— Christy Chirinos (@ChristyChirinos) August 8, 2014
Antonio Crawford has been particularly sharp, with INTs in back-to-back practices.
Heaps has a deep ball picked off by Antonio Crawford.— Christy Chirinos (@ChristyChirinos) August 8, 2014
And finally, 6'5 Darrell Langham should arrive tonight. This makes the first time in the Golden Era that every recruit has made it to campus. These are good days 'Canes fans!
