 Football Recruiting - The best from Miami-Dade

Player, school Pos. Size, speed
1. Brian Pata, Central DL 6-4, 260, 4.6

Scouting report: Had 9.5 sacks last year. Can play end or tackle, but will likely play tackle in college. Verbally committed to the University of Miami.

2. Dwayne Bowe, Norland WR 6-3, 205, 4.5

Scouting report: Discovered in the halls at school, he's beginning his second season at WR. As a junior, he caught five TD passes and was also named Norland's special teams MVP. Likes LSU, UM, West Virginia and Michigan State.
The Miami Herald | 08/23/2002 | Miami-Dade Class of 2003


Contrary to what the paper states, Pata is not committed to Miami. He decommited a few weeks ago and may very well take an official visit to RU.

Among the others on this list being recruited by RU are Eric Moncur, Tranell Morant (who will probably visit RU), Clifton Dickson, Miguel Scott, Ed Gelin, Stephan Tulloch, Brandon Jones, Jameel Brady, Quintero Frierson, Kenneth Williams, Jemmy Jasmin, Dorrean James, Christain Capote, Maurice Charles and Mike Alvarez.

Of the players I have talked to, Alvarez and Dickson both speak highly of RU. Jones is considering the Knights and there are a good ten of them I have yet to talk with.


Big East Football - Thursday Night Games

The game will be broadcast to a national television audience on ESPN. The Cougars and Orangemen last met in Syracuse, N.Y. during the 2000 season.

The game will mark only the second meeting between the two schools.

Baseball - A note from a fan familiar with the program

Mike- Fred Hill got a great recruit yesterday. Johnny Defendis was NY Gatorade Player of the Year. He had commited to Cal State Fullerton but was released and signed with RU! Coach is certainly continuing his record of retooling for the next campaign after loosing several quality players to the professional ranks. School is still out(literally and figuratively!) on Bob Brwonlie's status.
