* One QB to keep an eye on is Miami Jackson High's Quinton Flowers. He had a much better season on the field than Edourd in 2012 while playing similar competition. Edourd, however, is about an inch taller. It's somewhat interesting that the Canes took a commitment from Edourd this early while still waiting to see with Flowers, who could end up playing another position in college. He told me over the weekend that schools like USF and Marshall have offered him at quarterback but he's hoping the Canes come through. It doesn't make sense for the Canes to take another dual threat QB right now and the state is so deep at WR (the position Flowers would likely play if not QB) that UM can take a wait-and-see approach.
* Travonte Valentine landed an offer from the Hurricanes back during the season. He plays at Bayside High in Palm Bay, near where current WR Rashawn Scott grew up. Valentine (6-4, 300) is a talented kid who has size, athleticism, flexibility, and strength. Those are a few of the reasons why he's being recruited so heavily. He committed to Florida awhile back but backed off that decision over the weekend. He now lists Miami as one of the schools he's considering. The Canes need DT prospects badly, and he's already emerging as one of the state's best at his position. Remember the name.
* Speaking of linemen, one of the state's top players on offense is Corey Martinez. At 6-foot-4 and 300 pounds, Martinez is a very good OG prospect from Tampa Catholic. While the Canes have recruited the Tampa area well the last few years, Martinez will be a tough pull. It's because he grew up a big Florida fan, and seems to be waiting on an offer from the Gators. It'll likely come very soon. FSU has already offered. He's one of the few in-state OL prospects with a Miami offer though, so he's worth remembering for now.
