X’s and Ro Roman Rants: Post Fall Scrimmage Reaction Video

The Miami Hurricanes concluded their first fall scrimmage and news flash, D’Eriq King is still good. So was former West Virginia running back Kay-Jay Harris

NCAA Football: Miami at Florida State Melina Myers-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Hurricanes had their first fall scrimmage which was closed to the media recently. D’Eriq King is back. King, who had his first live fire action since tearing his ACL on Dec. 29 Cheez-It Bowl, was stellar.

He completed 12 of 16 passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns. A touchdown to Will Mallory along the sideline and a touch money dime to Oklahoma transfer Charleston Rambo were the highlights. Not to be outdone, some true freshmen pass catchers wanted to leave their mark on things.

The combination of Jacolby George, Romello Brinson and Brashard Smith had over 200 (230) combined yards. George was the leader of the first year baller brigade with 127 yards and a touchdown on a slant route. The talent among the first and second year route runners cannot be undersold.

If Navaughn Donaldson and Jarrid Williams are paired on the right side of the offensive line that will be 12 years of experience alone. The Hurricanes, along with offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, are looking to solidify arguably one of the most experienced units in the ACC.

Some closing thoughts on how this Miami Hurricane squad does not possess high end NFL draft talent. That should temper expectations a bit because until the Canes are able to just out gun their opposing ACC counterparts week to week, the gambit continues.

Just press play. The commentary continues on this week’s edition of Roman Rants. Thank you for the recent birthday wishes. Season is upon us, corrections aside, let’s go to work. #Bang #gocanes
