The Trend Meter for Miami Recruits

National Signing Day is just a couple weeks away. On a regular basis between now and then, CanesTime will take a look at some recent trends on some of Miami's top prospects. Read on for the absolute latest on some of Miami's most important recruits.

WR Lawrence Cager -- This wide receiver from the Washington DC area committed to the Hurricanes at the US Army All-American Game on national television earlier this month. He seemed solid at the time, obviously. Within a week, however, he scheduled an official visit to Alabama and landed an offer from Auburn. Despite taking the visit to Bama last weekend and listening to Auburn's pitch, he remains solidly committed to the Canes. He's been actively recruiting for Miami, hosted Al Golden for a home visit on Wednesday, and is scheduled to visit here this weekend. Things are looking very good in Miami's favor.

DE Shareef Miller -- Miami offered this talented pass rusher from the Philadelphia area at the end of the high school season. He was going back and forth on whether to officially visit here. Three Florida coaches visited his home a few days ago and was able to secure his final visit on Jan 30. Miami seemed out. Then Al Golden was inside his home on Thursday and got the visit back on. Things look a lot better than they did a few days ago but Penn State and Arizona State remain stiff competition.

CB Marcus Lewis -- This 4-star from the Washington DC area had a good visit to Miami this past weekend. The concern was how much of a push schools like Texas, Ohio State, and Michigan would make. It's been five days since he left Miami and things remain the same -- Miami's in very good shape and the three schools mentioned aren't seriously involved right now.

DT Kevin Scott -- Golden flew out to California and personally offered this kid last Thursday. He was only scheduled to visit Purdue and Ole Miss at the time and Miami seemed to be in good shape. They were able to secure an official visit -- which will take place this weekend. However, Texas and USC both offered him a scholarship this week, which will make it that much tougher for Miami to land him. What looked very promising just a week ago doesn't look so strong now.

OL Tyree St. Louis -- This Under Armour All-American committed to the Hurricanes several months ago and the only two schools that were in the mix during the season were Syracuse and USF. Neither proved to be much of a threat to Miami. He took an official visit here last weekend and things looked to be just about locked up. Then all of a sudden he scheduled visits to Florida and Tennessee for the next two weekends. While he remains committed to the Canes, keeping him away from Florida and Tennessee is a lot different than keeping him away from Syracuse and USF.
