UM recruits taking other visits

This is a huge recruiting weekend for the University of Miami and other schools from across the country. While the Canes will be hosting several key recruits, many others will be visiting elsewhere this weekend. has the rundown of who's going where, complete with analysis on each one.

Sheldon Richardson, Missouri -- The four-star tight end prospect made a commitment to Missouri even before his junior year of high school. When he started getting more offers, including one from Miami, this past summer he decided to open his recruiting process back up some. He liked Miami growing up and is scheduled to visit the school the first time next month. However, getting him out of Missouri will be tough. That's where he'll be on a visit to this weekend.

Henry Conway, Indiana -- The big Ohio offensive lineman does not have an offer from Miami yet but has been staying in close touch with UM line coach Jeff Stoutland. Conway has visits scheduled to Michigan State and Indiana, where he'll be this weekend. He told me last week that he'd like to take January visits to Miami and Boston College but nothing has been scheduled yet.

Marcus Hall, Ohio State -- This five-star offensive tackle prospect is being recruited as heavily as any OL prospect in the entire nation this year. Ohio State is trying to keep him home and the fact that he plays at the same school that's produced a number of quality players to Ohio State in recent years (they're coached by Ted Ginn Sr.) makes it even tougher. However, Hall has Miami in his top two and he's scheduled to visit here in January.

Taylor Lewan, Michigan -- This will be the four-star offensive lineman's second official visit. He went to Minnesota, where his father played, a couple weeks ago. He said the only other visit he knows he'll take for sure is to Oregon. Miami is one of several schools competing for one of those final two visit slots but pulling him will be a tough task for the Hurricanes.

Andrew Tiller, Rutgers -- The massive Juco standout has two visits in mind -- Rutgers, where he'll be this weekend, and Miami. He'll graduate in May with three years to play three (which is rare for Juco transfers). He has an offer from Miami and received an in-home visit from Coach Stoutland recently. Tiller said Rutgers and Miami are the top two schools on his current list of favorites.

William Campbell, Florida -- This five-star defensive tackle prospect is expected to take the ACT tomorrow morning and then fly to Gainesville for an official visit. It'll be his fourth one. He's already been to LSU, Alabama, and Michigan. He plans to finish up his visits next weekend with a trip to Miami. Everyone seems to be battling Michigan the most, as that's the school he committed to very early in the process. Campbell will be graduating early so his final decision will happen in a few weeks.

Denard Robinson, Florida -- This four-star prospect is taking his second official visit this weekend, to Florida. He's already been to Georgia and is expected to see Michigan at some point. He's stopped doing phone interviews about a month ago so it's been tough to tell what he's thinking about. A UM coach was at his first round playoff game a few weeks ago and it seems like he's still in the mix for Miami but the recent offer to Texas cornerback Demontre Hurst might be an indication that the UM coaching staff doesn't feel real confident with him. Florida has been talked about as the front-runner for awhile now so it'll be interesting to see how his visit there goes this weekend.
