The Wake Up

Good morning OBB. This is your Monday morning wake up call. There was a lot that transpired over the weekend and Discord-U never sleeps. A few Canes find a new home with a friendly face #ponyup and the running back room got a lot faster.

the Greentree

Jaylan Knighton found a home in Dallas with his former OC and it makes total sense. Knighton led the Miami Hurricanes in rushing in 2021 (561 rushing yards) when Rhett Lashlee called the plays. Now the rooster reunites with an offense he is very familiar and in tune with. Knighton had 11 touchdowns two seasons ago and was the main running back focal point.

The U in SMU should stand for the University of Miami. Jordan Miller and Elijah Roberts became the second and third former Hurricanes who committed to SMU over the weekend. Shandra Roberts, mother of Elijah Roberts, stated on twitter that “A shiny new building means nothing when the people in it aren’t good.” 

The comment could have been misconstrued. (The Hurricanes recently announced a 6 story football operations building) Roberts would go onto clarify that it was about a coach who said the quote and was not meant to be taken in a negative light.

“Either way don’t tweet at players or mom’s of players.”

“Which coach is she talking about?”

“Does anybody else find it funny that the Miami kids are going to SMU and not Penn State.”

Life Wallet’s John Ruiz announced over the weekend that they have come to terms with Akheem Mesidor for an NIL deal. This deal will cover the 2023 calendar year and there were extenuating circumstances since Mesidor is considered an international player. The Canadian born Mesidor was arguably Miami’s best defensive lineman a year ago and the NIL deal signals a welcomed return.

The news of Mike Leach in the hospital fighting for his life saddened the halls of Discord-U. We will continue to pray for the pirate. (A term of endearment we refer to him as.) Dana Holgorsen a colleague and someone Leach mentored was also devastated by the news and ensures Leach will continue to battle.

“Guy is one of my favorite coaches, so out of nowhere.”

“Shitty to hear the Mike Leach is in the hospital. Some sites it’s not real good. Leach is a national treasure.”

Recruiting Central

Miami got faster. Four-Star RB Christopher Johnson committed to Miami. The 5’11 180 running back from Dillard High School in Fort Lauderdale chose the Hurricanes over Ole Miss and Clemson and Miami continues to recruit well. The Hurricanes currently tout the number one recruiting class in the ACC over Clemson and rival FSU.

“He and Fletcher have been the tandem for a few months.” -Leeds OBB Recruiting Director

In terms of the international house of pancake. Samson “Pancake” Okunlola is the five star offensive tackle that is highly sought after nationally including Mario and Miami. Okunlola is currently at UF on his official visit and the vibe for the Hurricanes is that of “wait and see.”

“I am not going to update that (UF’s confidence) but Miami has a plan. We will see if it’s enough but UF is basically using their entire NIL budget on him.” -Leeds OBB Recruiting Director

“If he doesn’t move up his commitment date, he’s ours. If he does then it’s UF. Pretty Simple. We need him to keep his date.” -Leeds OBB Recruiting Director

“Our saving grace will be the spare Rashada money now. lol”

the Hard Woodies

Canes hoops had a come from behind win recently vs. NC State. After being down 16, the Hurricanes rallied back to beat the Pack 80-73. Jordan Miller was a manimal. Part man and part animal. Miller had 25 points, 5 boards and 3 assist and the Hurricanes improve to 10-1 this season. Over the past two seasons the Hurricanes are 22-3 when Miller scores double digits.

“I just realized we’re top of the ACC right now.”

“Coach L is one of the best at in game adjustments! Matty Ice- OBB Hoops Director

“It really wasn’t coaching savvy move. It was simply defending their two guards better and letting Wong/Miller go to work.” -Debby Downer
