Weekend Visitors: PREDICTIONS

The Hurricanes hosted its biggest recruiting weekend of the season and many of the players who visited were either committed to other schools or not committed at all. Read on to see where CanesTime.com believes each player will end up and why.

5-star TE prospect Sheldon Richardson -- Arguably the biggest prospect still on the board for the Hurricanes this recruiting season because he's a five-star prospect and he plays the position of a major need for the Canes right now, Richardson has things down to Missouri and Miami. While he grew up a Canes fan and will likely really like Miami even after after this weekend, it's hard to imagine that he'd switch a two-year plus commitment just a couple days before signing day.

4-star OG prospect Pete White -- This Under Armour All-American narrowed his list down to Maryland, Miami, and Tennessee right after the season. Those were his other two visits. White was offered by Miami way back in the spring and is getting the last visit but it'll be a tough pull. White's mom is a Maryland grad, his father went to grad school there, and his sister is a current student there. It's hard enough pulling kids that far away when going head-to-head with the hometown program but when you throw those factors in, it becomes even tougher.

4-star RB commit Lamar Miller -- Miller grew up wanting to play at Miami, committed to the Canes a few months ago, and never seriously considered or visited any other programs. He's definitely a solid commit.

4-star CB commit Jamal Reid -- A Miami commitment for several months now, the Canes were the first school to offer him. The only other visit he took was to Mississippi State, whose coaches were recruiting him at Florida but never got the OK to offer him there. Despite a good visit there from Wednesday to Friday of this past week, Reid is expected to ink with the Canes on Wednesday.

4-star S commit Ray Ray Armstrong -- After making a commitment to Miami at the Under Armour All-American Game earlier this month, Armstrong never considered or visited any other school. He's a solid commitment for the Canes.

4-star DE commit Dyron Dye -- See Armstrong.

3-star OG prospect Quinton Washington -- The Canes convinced him to visit when they went to see him last month and they've been on him hard ever since. He had a great visit to Michigan and the distance factor with South Carolina may be an issue. He's expected to make his decision known by Monday or Tuesday. South Carolina has landed just two of the five three-star or better interior OL prospects from their home state over the past three years while we've heard that Michigan has been the team to beat ever since he visited there back during the season.

3-star DT commit Luther Robinson -- After making an April commitment to Miami, Robinson still took official visits to Florida and UCF in recent weeks. We don't think it'll matter and Luther has told us a few times in recent weeks, including after both of those visits, that Miami is still the team to beat. We believe this visit will seal the deal.

3-star S commit Prince Kent -- One of Miami's first commitments last spring, Kent has already been to Miami for an unofficial visit over the summer. When we last spoke to him, at the Under Armour All-American Game a few weeks ago, Kent said no one else has really tried recruiting him since his commitment to the Canes and that he still has some work to do academically. Our sources in Georgia are telling us that Kent may have to spend time at a Junior College first.
PREDICTION: Junior College

3-star OL prospect Andrew Tiller -- With five players already committed along the offensive line and a few others still considering it, the Canes probably need to add at least one more. Since we believe Marcus Hall and Pete White will stay home and Quinton Washington will pick Michigan, Tiller's in line for a spot on the O-Line and we believe he'll take it. If Hall and/or Washington picks Miami before signing day, Tiller could be headed to either Rutgers or Syracuse.

3-star TE prospect Billy Sanders -- One of Miami's first commitments last winter, Sanders was committed for over 10 months before switching his pledge to UCLA. Considering that UCLA offered him way back in April and he didn't commit there until he visited in January, we believe his visit to Miami will push things back in favor of the Canes. While getting a chance to play defensive end at UCLA is appealing to Billy, so probably is the fact that Miami hasn't signed a tight end in the last two recruiting classes.
