Miami's Chances (2/4)

Signing Day is this week and several key targets remain undecided. CanesTime's Mike Bakas takes a look at those players, and gives Miami's chances on getting them.

QB Kevin Olsen -- Miami 100
RB Ray Lewis -- Miami 100
RB Alex Collins-- Miami 65, Arkansas 35
> UPDATE: Collins did not visit anywhere this past weekend. He will be in Atlanta tonight to announce his college decision on live television (Fox Sports South with a couple members from the Scout.com recruiting team). Arkansas offered a running back from Texas over the weekend, and he committed. That's about the only real news to report from the last few days. Miami's chances seem to be well over 50-percent heading into today.

RB Augustus Edwards -- Florida State 60, Miami 40
UPDATE: Edwards visited Miami over the weekend but did not commit. It's between Miami and Florida State. He may be waiting to see what Collins decides to do. If Collins picks Arkansas, Edwards will likely pick Miami. If Collins chooses Miami, the Noles could pull out ahead.

WR Stacy Coley -- Florida State 55, Miami 45
TE Beau Sandland -- Miami 100
TE Standish Dobard -- Miami 100
TE Ryheem Lockley -- Miami 100
UPDATE: Lockley was a late addition to the recruiting board. He visited here over the weekend, was offered a scholarship, and committed to the Canes. He's done. It will be the Canes on Wednesday.

OL Hunter Knighton -- Miami 100
OL Sunny Odogwu -- Miami 100
OL Alex Gall -- Miami 100
OL Denver Kirkland -- Arkansas 60, Florida State 30, Miami 10
UPDATE: One of his coaches told Scout Sunday that Kirkland met with Miami coaches again on Sunday, and the offer is back on the table. That seems a bit odd considering the story that broke Thursday about Miami pulling back its offer. Look for Randy Shannon's relationship with Ice Harris (Kirkland's coach) to be a big difference in the end.

DE Alquadin Muhammad -- Miami 75, Rutgers 25
UPDATE: The All-American visited Rutgers over the weekend. This is concerning for a few reasons. One, most of the players at his school end up at Rutgers. He even has a few coaches there. As good as his relationship is with Miami's staff, it's not as good as his relationship with the Rutgers staff. Two, he wanted to keep it quiet before the news got out. Miami still seems to be in good shape but don't be shocked if he chooses Rutgers at the last minute.

DE Devante Bond -- Miami 100
DT Keith Bryant -- Florida State 50, Miami 40, South Carolina 10
DT Jaynard Bostwick -- Florida 55, Miami 45
UPDATE: He made the Florida visit with his father over the weekend. Typically a player will choose the school he visits last if it's a program he's been considering strongly all year. Miami has been in good shape all year but Florida made a very strong push at the end.

DT Ufomba Kamalu -- Miami 100
DT Terell Brooks -- Baylor 60, Miami 20, Kansas State 20
LB Alex Figueroa -- Miami 100
LB Matthew Thomas -- Miami 50, Alabama 35, Florida State 10, USC 5
UPDATE: The five-star didn't take his scheduled visit to Georgia, which was expected. He'll announce between four schools on Wednesday. Despite the Kirkland situation at Booker T lately, Miami still seems to be in good shape. Alabama -- not Florida State - seems to be the top competition still.

LB Jermaine Grace -- Miami 85, Louisville 15
CB Artie Burns -- Miami 100
CB Rashard Robinson -- LSU 70, Miami 30
S Jamal Carter -- Miami 100
