Miami Hurricanes News and Notes: Players returning from injury; recruiting notes

Your daily digest of Miami Hurricanes notes for October 25th

Let’s go

Mark Richt “We’re definitely going to get some guys back”

If you’ve missed it, Miami has been particularly ravaged by injuries, especially recently. But, according to head coach Mark Richt, that may be changing, and soon:

With paper thin depth across the board, getting guys back from injury woould be a big help. So, Chad Thomas, welcome back. Demetrius Jackson, maybe. Rayshawn Jenkins, too soon to tell.

But, overall, getting guys back from injury is most decidedly a good thing. And they’ll be back not a moment too soon.

Mark Richt throwing shade/always crootin’?

Much has been made over Mark Richt’s comments about having a mobile QB. Some say it’s shade at Brad Kaaya, widely known to not be the most fleet afoot. Some say it’s a statement to 2017 recruit N’Kosi Perry that he is the future for Miami. Some say other stuff. Here’s the video of CMR’s statements, along with Antrel Rolle’s reaction.

Agree with Antrel? Disagree with Antrel? I know you have a thought about this, so feel free to share it in the comments below.

Recruiting, Recruiting, Recruiting

Recruiting is how you upgrade your roster in CFB. Through incoming players, you add deptyh and talent, and build for the future. And, there’s been plenty of talk about Miami Recruiting recently.

After S Amari Carter committed and CB/S Brian Edwards decommitted over the weekend, I took a look at where the Canes may go at DB in the 2017 class now.

Peter Ariz from had this dispatch regarding WR Mike Harley, a talented but undersized WR from St. Thomas Aquinas (Ft. Lauderdale, FL)

Ariz also took a look at Miami’s top targets at WR: 5-star Devonta Smith (Amite, LA), and 4-star Jeremiah Holloman (Newton, GA).

These guys are great players, and getting either would be great. Getting both would be a homerun WR class to go along with Kevaughn Dingle and Evidence Njoku.

Lastly (for today), Andrew Ivins from — Miami’s 247sports site — had this prediction for the final version of the Canes’ 2017 recruiting class ($ — subscription required)

Quick Hitters

Surveying the rest of the Canes’ landscape on the interwebs.

Craig T. Smith’s Monday Musings is back. Miami-ND. And, is Corn Elder the next great ProCane?

Mike Grunewald writes about 2016, the year of trying to fly a brick with wings. What? Read it and you’ll see.

Devin Tucker has your ProCanes NFL recap for week 7. We still ballin’, boiiii.

What’s the line and movement for this week’s Miami-ND game been? Glad you asked.

Basketball season is around the corner, and the Canes figure to be good again. With Coach L at the helm, and the best recruiting class in the history of the Canes Hoops program, there’s plenty of reason for optimism. On top of that, according to, the leading CFB analytics site, Miami opens the year as the #24 team according to the site’s metrics. More on this soon.

That’s it guys. Have a good one.
