NSD Predictions

The Hurricanes will be awaiting on final decisions from several key prospects tomorrow. Read on for a breakdown of where CanesTime's Mike Bakas believes each of those players will end up and why.

I expect all of UM's current commitments to sign with the Canes tomorrow, including 5-star DE Chad Thomas (who Alabama is trying to steal late). QB Treon Harris -- FSU. The 4-star QB prospect from Booker T Washington didn't get offered by Miami as a QB until late in the recruiting process. It was probably too late, as he's been committed to play QB at FSU for several months now.

RB Bo Scarbrough -- Alabama. The 5-star RB prospect visited Miami two weekends ago but ended up going to Alabama (unofficially) this past weekend when some thought he'd come here. This one seems over.

DE Lorenzo Featherston - Miami. The 3-star prospect from North Carolina made an early commitment to Florida State but still made three other visits, including one to Miami, which indicates that his commitment wasn't always rock solid. He drove down with a family member last weekend and things look very positive for Miami in terms of being able to flip him tomorrow.

DT Lamont Gaillard - UGA. The 4-star prospect from North Carolina visited the Canes this past weekend. Things went well but it's going to be tough and I hear the Bulldogs have him secured going into tomorrow.

DT Travonte Valentine - LSU. The 4-star prospect was once committed to the Hurricanes. He backed off that and then visited LSU, who was seemingly able to prevent him from taking his final visit to Miami. The Canes are still in it but it's rare for a kid to sign with UM without even visiting.

CB J.C. Jackson - Miami. The state's top cornerback prospect, Jackson has a situation similar to that of Tracy Howard two years ago. He's been committed to FSU and Florida and I expect him to flip for a second time tomorrow.

DB Arrion Springs - Oregon. The Canes were able to get this 4-star prospect from Texas to visit a few weeks ago. However, it wasn't enough to change his commitment from the Ducks.

DB Tavon Ross - Missouri. Georgia and Miami made late offers to this Missouri commitment and got him to visit. Georgia's still in the mix and he didn't even mention Miami in his latest update with Scout.

Don't be surprised if UM signs an unknown LB tomorrow, sort of like they did a few years ago with Eddie Johnson.
