Recruiting: The latest on Defense

Here's what's going on with UM's defensive recruiting efforts.

Defensive Linemen: Adewale Ojomo is a big commitment. He's solid and I love his upside. UM is actively recruiting Jack Carter, a UCF commit, locally and I wouldnt be surprised if he signs with UM. If it were tomorrow, I bet he would. I dont think they'll give up on Perry but I dont think he'll come. Kerry Murphy is still in the mix but I think he's a longshot, because of Alabama and grades. Frank Alexander, from La., will likely visit later this month and that's a realistic possibility. I have a hard time believing there arent more DL prospects on the board.

Linebackers: They seemingly only want to sign one. Allen Bailey is probably No. 1 on the board. We're very much in it. Brandon Hicks is probably next. I still think we will beat Florida for him. Earl Patin and Joshua Gaines are other possibilities who plan to visit later this month. I think we'll get one of those four.

Defensive Backs: Wiggins starts school next week and that's a plus. He's a kid Randy wanted from day one. Damien Berry is a solid commit and he's a kid Randy wanted from day one. They probably want to sign 4 since 3 were committed for a long time while others were still being recruited. DVD is still being recruited. Same as Joseph Nicolas, who I think is more likely to make the switch.
