I'm just here so I don't get fined. Here's the updates:
Canes grab another 2017 commit
I was off the grid with personal stuff this weekend, but that didn't stop the Canes from addiing to their 2017 recruiting haul.
3-star QB N'Kosi Perry (6'3" 170lbs) from Vanguard HS in Ocala, FL is the latest player to commit to the Canes. He's a raw but talented player who could, in time, be a very good option at the quarterback position.

With 4-star QB Jack Allison committed in the 2016 class, Perry would come in behind one of the more talented players in the class preceding him. When faced with that same proposition in 2015 (coming in behind Brad Kaaya), QB Dwayne Lawson decided to decommit from Miami and sign with Virginia Tech.
While it's way too early to say the same thing will happen with Perry, just keep that in mind as this and the next recruiting cycle play out.
Welcome to the U, N'Kosi!!
Canes commits still dominating
Every week, there are big HSFB games. And, every week, players committed to Miami dominate.
A couple highlights from this week:

Hoops targets announcing decision Monday
The tandem of 6'9 PF Brison Gresham and 6'5 combo guard DeJon "Deeky" Jarreau will be announcing their collegiate destination on Monday afternoon.
The pair, who visited Coral Gables last week, have narrowed their choices to Miami and UMass. So, there's a 50-50 chance the Canes land this talented package deal.
Be sure to check back tomorrow and see if Coach L was able to work his magic and get these 2 players to join the squad.
DeJon Jarreau @LaDeeky and Brison Gresham @bri_son32 announcement time has been switched 2:00pm #ItsOnlyTheBeginning #TheDecision— EPEliteEYBL (@EPEliteEYBL) September 28, 2015
FYI: that' 2pm Central time, which means the announcement is at 3pm Eastern.
October is when things heat up
With 5 games this month, and several key matchups among them, this is the month where things will start to pick up on the recruiting trail.
So, expect there to be many more updates, and much more movement in both the 2016 and 2017 classes.
That's it for now.
