Hey there Canes fans. Miami had a BIG official visit weekend in the Gables this weekend. Here’s my preview with all the visiting players and some commentary for good measure:
Now that the trips are over, let’s take a look at some of the top tweets from visitors and Canes fans alike from the OV weekend.
First, 4-star OL commit Navaughn Donaldson posted this picture, which says a thousand words.
Fellow Miami (FL) Central Rocket and Canes commit 3-star LB Waynmon Steed was hype to begin his visit to The U

Even early on in the visit weekend, 3-star S Amari Carter had a feeling things were going well for Miami.
I can already tell this weekend is going to be right! Ⓜ️ ️Ⓜ️ ‼️‼️‼️ #TheU— AC5️⃣ (@Carter_Fame) December 9, 2016
Maybe a peek at the future? 4-star OL Navaughn Donaldson, 5-star WR Jerry Jeudy, 3-star RB Robert Burns, and 4-star ATH Christopher Henderson on their OV’s to Miami. Donaldson and Burns are Canes commits, and Miami is trying to get Jeudy and Henderson in the class as well.
Not a player on an OV to Miami, but Canes TE target Tre’ McKitty shared some thoughts on Saturday night
No matter what I decide someones feelings are gonna be hurt, Dont get mad or upset with me because of my decisions, just following my heart.— Tre' Mckitty (@T_mckitty) December 10, 2016
Canes WR target Mike Harley had a huge game in the Florida 7A Championship game, catching 5 passes for 133 yards and 3 TDs, including this beauty to open the scoring

Did one of Harley’s teammates drop a hint in this post-game interview about the WVU commit’s future plans?
Another Canes target, 5-star WR Devonta Smith showing off some of his 5-star talents in the Louisiana State 3A State Championship Game
4-star RB Anthony McFarland (Hyattsville, MD) reportedly named Miami his leader fresh off a visit to Maryland. This pleases me.
There goes Canes commit DeeJay Dallas tweeting gems again

Are you a follower or are you a leader?
Bottom line only the realist Gonna rock with #Squad17 at the end of the day. No followers just leaders— Soulja From Da North (@ThatCaneZo) December 10, 2016
The visit weekend continued Saturday
Assistant Director of Player Personnel/Recruiting Jorge Baez was on his twitter game
Recent commit Corey Gaynor is #AllAboutTheU, with S&C coach Felder and fellow commit Navaughn Donaldson

OT commit Navaughn Donaldson rocking his future jersey number
RB commit Robert Burns sure looks the part in his uniform

5-star WR Jerry Jeudy also modeled a jersey and threw up The U on his Official Visit to Coral Gables
Yeah, these guys are currently on the Canes’ roster, but getting them back for 2017 would be the biggest recruiting wins in this class for Miami. IDC IDC IDC
There’s probably more, but this is a good place to wrap it up.
No matter how you look at it, the OV weekend in Coral Gables had plenty of buzz, and hopefully we’ll see the fruits of those labors in the days and weeks to come.
