March Recruiting Update: QB's

National Signing Day is still nearly a year away but there's a lot happening on the recruiting front for the Class of 2014. Lets take a closer look, focusing on quarterbacks in this report.

The Hurricanes just signed one of the nation's top quarterbacks in the 2013 class in Kevin Olsen. Now they're out to add more for the 2014 class.

Alin Edouard is a local player who has already committed to the Hurricanes. At 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds, Edouard is a very athletic and strong-armed quarterback prospect who had developed a good relationship with former UM assistant Mario Cristobal, dating back to his days at FIU. After Cristobal left, Edouard told Scout that he's keeping his options open a bit and has continued getting major scholarship offers. Still, he remains a solid commitment to Miami.

Despite the commitment from Edouard, the Hurricane coaches are still seeking another quarterback in this class.

David Cornwell is a 6-5 gunslinger from the state of Oklahoma. While he has close to a dozen scholarship offers, including one from Miami, he lives in Norman just a few minutes from the Oklahoma campus. Most believe that it's only a matter of time before the Sooners offer. If and when they do, they'll be very tough to beat.

Deshaun Watson is a southpaw from the state of Georgia. At 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, he has ideal size and athleticism and landed a recent offer from the Hurricanes. Unfortunately, he's committed to Clemson right now and that might be a tough thing to change for the Canes moving forward.

Drew Barker is the top prospect in the state of Kentucky this year. He has a lot of other offers, in addition to Miami, and getting him on campus for a visit will be the first task toward helping Miami's chances. As of now, it's going to be tough competing with a lot of the SEC schools in that area.

One player still waiting for an offer to keep an eye on is Caleb Henderson from the state of Virginia. He is starting to collect some major offers and has indicated an interest in checking out the UM campus at some point this spring. That could be when an offer takes place. If those both happen, the Canes would be very much in the running.
