UM Recruiting Scoop: 2/22

Read on for all the latest recruiting news and information surrounding the University of Miami, with complete analysis from CanesTime's Mike Bakas.

* Despite the recent additions to the 2013 recruiting class, Miami's coaches likely aren't finished with their recruiting efforts for that class. Holes remain at linebacker and especially defensive tackle, and a player or two could emerge at those spots in the near future. For now, there are no legitimate prospects to discuss. However, it's not over.

* Even with the recent commitment of Alin Edourd at the quarterback position, the Hurricanes are still recruiting some others. Players like Drew Barker and David Cornwell were recently offered. The next one could be to Virginia's Caleb Henderson. At 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, Henderson finished his junior season with 2,433 yards, 19 touchdowns, and 10 picks. He also added 450 yards on the ground. Henderson has about a half dozen offers right now and is being actively recruited by Miami. It's likely only a matter of time before an offer is made. According to his father, Henderson plans to visit UM sometime in the near future.

* It's a great year for wide receivers so it's interesting that Virginia's Jamil Kamara is telling Scout the Hurricanes are one of his 20 or so offers. At 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds, he's a big receiver without a whole lot of early interest in the Canes. Miami's efforts seem focused primarily on in-state targets such as Travis Rudolph (committed), Ermon Lane, Johnnie Dixon, Darrell Langham, and players like that.

* A new linebacker offer went out recently, and it's from a state the Hurricanes haven't recruited in many years. Troy Reeder is the top prospect in the state of Delaware. At 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds, Reeder has a lot of early offers, including one from Miami. He says he'd like to get down here to check out the school at some point. The last player the Hurricanes recruited from there is Orien Harris back in the Butch/Coker transition year.

* Quin Blanding is one of the nation's premier defensive back prospects. Miami offered him very early in the process, and he has offers from everyone. He has his list cut down to 10 and plans to announce his commitment very soon. UNC and Virginia seem to have the inside track right now. Mainly because he's never been here before, Miami seems to be on the outside looking in right now.
