Good Morning Canes Familia,

It’s another wonderful Friday morning! While the football team currently waits to find out where they’ll be headed in their bowl game to close out 2018, there’s still plenty of news coming out of the Gables. So lets dive in.

Canes Whiff on Another QB Recruit

On Wednesday official word came that four-star quarterback Max Johnson choose to commit to LSU over the likes of Miami. The dagger in this story is the fact that Johnson is actually the nephew of UM head coach Mark Richt. Not only has the family matter dissolved in the general public, CMR was one of the first coaches to offer a scholarship to his nephew.

The move leaves Miami in search of a QB recruit for both the 2019 and 2020 recruiting cycle. Recently, UM has offered and visited three-star quarterbacks Ethan Garbers of Newport Beach, California and Tyler Van Dyke of Glastonbury, Connecticut. Both prospects are part of the 2020 cycle and are currently uncommitted.

Canes Recruit Sets Decision Date

Class of 2019 IMG Academy OT Evan Neal has announced that he will be making his college decision on December 19th on ESPN. Neal is a coveted five-star prospect that would be a boon should he decide to sign on the dotted line with UM.

In-Home Visits Continue

CMR shared a plate last night with four-star Lakeland TE Keon Zipperer.

State of Declarations

With cries for Miami to hire an offensive coordinator ASAP, Justin Dottavio examines a possible candidate for the position in Princeton OC Sean Gleeson.

“Iron sharpens iron.” If the Hurricanes aim to improve sooner than later then they’re going to need to play competent competition. Dylan Sherry explains why facing a tougher opponent this bowl season should benefit the Canes .

Former Hurricane and current Dallas Cowboys WR Allen Hurns wore his My Cause, My Cleats during Thursday Night Football. Read about the noble cause that the Miami Gardens native has undertaken to promote safer schools in the aftermath of a tragedy.

Women’s Basketball Picks up a Win

UM Women’s Basketball dropped their second game of the 2018-’19 season by a final score 74-63 on the road against the Purdue Boilermakers last night. The Hurricanes were led by F Emese Hof who scored 25 points and 19 rebounds. The Lady Canes will be back on the hardwood Sunday when they host Colorado at the Watsco Center.

Have a Great Day and Go Canes!
