RB Enjoys Game; Talks Recruiting

This talented running back went over 1,000 yards last Friday night then made an unofficial visit to Miami for their game against Florida State. Read on to find out what he and Tyrone Moss talked about, why he likes the Hurricanes, an update on a former teammate who is now a Cane, and more.

At 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds, Apopka, Fla. standout running back Alan Abrams and his team suffered its second straight loss last week to the hands of Lake Brantley. However, Abrams went over 1,000 yards for the season to go with 10 touchdowns.

"The blitz has been killing us," Abrams said about the last two losses after a 4-0 start. "Plus, we fumbled twice on the goal line and that really hurt us."

Abrams, a full academic qualifier, made an unofficial visit to Miami this past weekend to watch the Canes take on Florida State.

"I went down with my parents and we saw a great game," he said. "It's probably the best game I've ever seen. Plus I got a chance to meet some other guys. I talked with Tyrone Moss a lot. We basically talked about our seasons and about the possibility of going to Miami."

Abrams, who currently has scholarship offers from Georgia, LSU, N.C. State, Purdue, and Indiana, is getting close to setting up some official visits.

"I'll be doing that real soon. A lot of coaches still call here each week and I'm going to be narrowing down my list over the next few weeks because I'm pretty wide open and haven't really given it much thought."

One of the coaches that stays in regular contact is UM coach Don Soldinger, who stopped by the school earlier this week.

"I talk to Soldinger every week," he said. "He talks about the team, my season, and stuff like that. He's a good guy who has been coming by here for awhile now since he recruited Brandon Merriweather last year."

Abrams also talked about a close friend of his who is now at Miami.

"Brandon told me he really likes it there," he said. "He said everything's great and they really work hard as a team. That's what I want. He told me he's going to be redshirting this season."

So how close are the Hurricanes to offering Abrams?

"He said I'm still one of a few running backs they're still recruiting," he said. "Otherwise, I have no idea. I just have to keep going out on Friday nights and doing my thing."
