St. Thomas Aquinas 2014 defensive lineman Anthony Moten has been around Miami enough to get familiar with the program.
He looks like someone that rushes off the edge well. If we can land him McCord would be going into his junior year, Chick into his senior year, and if we land Tim Williams he'll be either a RS frosh or true sophomore
I read some other stuff on this kid & he's all about Miami. Said "I went to a FSU game & it didn't have anything on this". Although we lost this game, we showed we are on the verge of cracking that egg & being in the hunt nationally with the right players. This game made a big impression on this years prospects but, it also hit a lot of 2014 prospects hard too & all of them are seeing 1st hand what's happening here. They all can see that Miami is just a few players away here & there from having a complete team & being able to compete again with the big boy's. If we would have been blown out of the game we might have lost interest from some of our high guy's left on the big board but instead it looks like it even helped us more the way it turned out. Cause like I said"These kid's can see what's happening here, that it is a big family connection & that we are real close to turning that corner with the right guys". So like I said-I think this game really hit home with some of our big targets & future stars too.!!! Would really be nice again to start keeping this talent home & make this a "MIAMI THANG" again & I see & hear from a lot of kid's that they are starting to see the big picture just like Duke did last year. I really believe Al closes this class strong but & this is a big but with a big meaning. We absolutely have to beat VT-There is no getting away from that. We beat those cat's on a Thurs night in front of the whole Nation & keep our hopes a live playing for the ACC is huge & I mean huge. If we are able to do this & I think we can if we just execute & our staff does a better job then these kid's who just witnessed a very young team hang in with a so called power house can see themselves a part of this & also being a part of turning this thang around again & getting our identity back. But it is so imperative we just win out & that's the bottom line. I know our kid's will play hard but we need our coaching staff now more than ever. They have to be there for our young Canes & help them & coach them to win these last few & get to a game that not 1 person in the media biz would have given our CANES 1 shot. So, not only do we have the chance to do something we haven't since joining the ACC, looking real attractive to our big guy's left on our board but to also shove down the media throat who didn't even see us having any kind of chance of this accomplishment. But to do this, it's gonna take our players playing & wanting this like something they have never had & for our staff to really step up & show they guided the youngest team in a major conference to the ACC game & won it. All of this is there for the taking we just have to do what AG's small word is but has such a huge meaning & that just "FINISH" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Champ, i totally agree with you!! Al can't turn this program around overnight, but he has us on the right path! Go Canes!!
This is a process, we are going to be really good.
