    Miami is proud to intorduce Jamal Johnson as the first signing of its Class of 2012. The 6'0 SS 4 star recruit from Boca Raton has very good athleticism and will need to put on some size.

    A victory over a rival on the field translated to victories on the recruiting trail for the the University of Miami today. In all seven players announced they would suit up in the orange, green and white next fall. Here's how it breaks down:

    Cole Patterson #1 ATH who fits the athletic signal caller who can learn from expected starter AJ Highsmith next fall. Many publications had Patterson as giving a verbal commitment to Nebraska so his commitment to Miami came as a bit of a surprise.

    William Lowe #3 DT is a good size interior presence with JUCO experience. Strength and tackling ability are not overly dominant but he should could the DT lineage at the U.

    Terry Phillips # 4 G grades out a good blocker who has better strength than footwork but should fit into the Miami run first offense.

    Rian Wall #8 DT lacks the size of Lowe but has very good strength and should be able to use that to his advantage until he forces teams to devote more than one blocker to him.

    Andrew Lawrence # 8 SS has good cover skills a the safety spot and should fight fellow 2012 commitment Jamal Johnson for the right to backup Nichols next fall.

    Dan Monroe #10 TE is a monster at 6'7 238 lbs. with soft hands and decent speed he will need to improve his blocking to live up to his potential and the strong Miami TE tradition.

    Edmond Scott #17 is a very good route runner with the ability to go up and make difficult catches in traffic. HE could see significant PT next fall as the 'Canes graduate its top 3 receivers.

    With 10 scholarships still available Miami will try to close out the season strong on the recruiting trail while trying to position itself for its second ACC championship game.

    As they begin prepping for their ACC Championship Game aagainst rival FSU, the 'Canes proudly announced the signings of CB Mark Robinson, MLB James Martin and C Jeff Ford.

    Robinson has a good jam on receivers off the line of scrimmage to go with his very good closing speed. The Hurricanes have a lot of depth at the corner spot so it will be interesting to see if they move Robinson or another of their talented corners to FS where the depth is lacking.

    Martin is a solid tackler with not the most ideal speed but should provide that much needed depth for a couple years until he can be "coached up" to fit the Miami system.

    Ford may see some playing time next year as Miami is hurting across the offensive line, especially at center. Good but not great at any one area probably best describes Ford.
