Good morning OBB. This is your Friday morning wake up call. Today marks the end of the early signing day period and a lot of attention will be focused on one particular recruit. National pushback calling Miami’s class a loser fair or foul? The Miami Hurricanes are in the midst of setting the framework for a revamped 2023. I think it’s time to head on over to the Greentree. #LETS-GO! Wake up!
Despite the BREAKING local news report that Cormani McClain would sign yesterday, that did not happen. The situation has materialized to be a little more difficult despite the initial hiccup presentation. The chance to sign early ends at 11:59 pm on December 23rd. The Hurricanes hope to land McClain’s signature to cement an already impressive class.
If the signature does not happen today, the push would then be focused to sign the #1 cornerback in the country during the regular signing day in February. The longer this goes however, the confidence of signing McClain should be tempered. Stay tuned.
“So percentage McClain is singed today? 25%?”
“Why doesn’t he wake up worrying about my happiness next fall?”
OPINION. Is it fair to put the Miami Hurricane top five recruiting class on the loser’s side? No. It is not. Even if the above mentioned McClain does not sign his letter of intent, the Hurricanes should be commended for its recruiting class. The fact remains, a top five class should be celebrated especially off of the backs of a disappointing 5-7 season.
However the national perception of Miami’s class being losers is one of the most awful takes I have seen in a while. The same pundits applauded an FSU class ranked 19th nationally. Rival takes are often shrouded and caped in delusion, and that’s fine, but national recruiting services took a step back in their assessment of the Hurricanes.
Even Miami Hurricanes recruiting coordinator Dennis Smith weighed in on the situation. He called 247’s Andrew Ivins to disagree with his note of signing day and he still doesn’t agree. And neither do we. NOTE: The Hurricanes had the consensus number one class in the ACC. (All publications)
Congratulations are in order to Miami Men’s basketball coach Jim Larranaga who was nominated to the 2023 Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Larranaga is a first-time nominee. Coach L is in his 51st season as a college coach including his 12th at Miami. His 708 victories to date is good for No. 33 all time on the D1 leaderboard.
“I am incredibly honored and humbled to be named a nominee for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. To be considered alongside some of the giants of our game was beyond my wildest dreams when entering this profession over 50 years ago.” -Jim Larranaga
“Coach L is the goat.”
“Be honest, how many people wanted him gone a couple years ago.”
