ESPN's Andrea Adelson reports that Miami senior T Tyree St. Louis could start at left tackle for the Hurricanes in 2018.

St. Louis has started the last 21 games for Miami at right tackle, but Adelson notes that St. Louis ended the spring on the left side. "The Hurricanes have to replace the entire starting left side of their offensive line, with KC McDermott and Trevor Darling gone," she writes. "But that remains a work in progress after a spring in which the line struggled to play consistently." St. Louis could see his draft stock improve dramatically if he starts at left tackle and performs well in the ACC in 2018.

Miami freshman DE Gregory Rousseau posted a pair of sacks in the team's spring game.

Rosseau (6'7/250) is a player whom Tom VanHaaren suspects could push for playing time as a true freshman. He was a strong performer not only in the team's spring game, but throughout the spring practice gauntlet. Rousseau is a prime candidate to outperform his recruiting ranking as he embarks on his collegiate career -- he signed with the Hurricanes as a three-star prospect over the winter.

Miami (FL) and UAB have agreed to play in 2020.

The game will take place on September 19 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. Not surprisingly, it won't be a home-and-home series. Miami still has one more non-conference game to add to their schedule, as they now have the Blazers along with Michigan State and Temple scheduled.

Miami (FL) received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 S Keontra Smith, who had previously been committed to Kentucky.

Smith was a long-time verbal for the Wildcats, but he's now a member of the Hurricanes' recruiting class. He was also considering Michigan, Alabama, Auburn and Florida; among others. He ranks as the 13th best safety in the class according to 247 Sports, and the 25th best player out of the state of Florida.

Miami (FL) received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 OLB Avery Huff.

Huff ranks as the 20th best outside linebacker on 247 Sports composite rankings, and the 50th best player in the always impressive state of Florida. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound linebacker picks the Hurricanes over offers from schools like Alabama, Penn State, Texas and South Carolina. He'll certainly need to get stronger, but Huff is an athletic defender who could help the Miami defense in the coming seasons.

ESPN's Andrea Adelson passes along that Miami redshirt senior DT Gerald Willis was "virtually unblockable" during spring practice.

Yowza. Adelson forwarded the 6-foot-2, 280-pound Willis as Miami's breakout performer of the spring. We're eagerly anticipating his upcoming redshirt senior campaign, as he took a leave of absence from the team a year ago and did not play a snap for the club during the 2017 season. Per Adelson, coaches have been encouraged by what they've seen from Willis in his maturation as both a player and a human being this year. Willis came to Miami in 2015 via transfer after he ran into off-field troubles at Florida.

Miami QB coach Jon Richt said in mid-April that redshirt freshman QB N'Kosi Perry had done a "great job."

"He’s getting up there understanding what the defense is doing and maybe making some adjustments to get us in a better play," said Richt, who used variations on the term "learning" several times when speaking about Perry. The mental process of the game has not yet completely slowed down for the 6-foot-4, 187-pound dual-threat signal-caller -- he still has a tendency to overthink at times -- but it's starting to get there. Perry may well be Miami's best shot at a real Playoff run down the road, but it's unlikely that Miami hands the keys over to him in August camp unless he outright beats incumbent starter Malik Rosier in competition. As alluring as an upside prospect like Perry might be (he's drawn comparisons to Lamar Jackson in his athleticism), this will be Rosier's job to lose.

Miami and HC Mark Richt agreed to a contract extension through the 2023 season.

Richt helped guide Miami to the ACC Championship Game last season -- they fell to Clemson in that title showdown and would end the campaign losing to Wisconsin in bowl action -- with the Hurricanes posting their first 10-win season since all the way back in 2003. We'll see if they can crack the Playoff field this autumn.

Colts signed Miami K Mike Badgley.

Badgley (5’10/183) broke Carlos Huerta’s school records for career field goals (77) and points scored (403) at The U, drilling 79.4% of his career field-goal attempts. Badgley went 3-of-11 on 50-plus-yard attempts, but nailed 23-of-25 (92%) inside 40-49 yards. Despite his intermediate accuracy, Badgley’s sub-par long-distance leg strength was also exposed via his inability to consistently hit touchbacks.
May 3 - 11:13 AM

Jaguars signed Miami CB Dee Delaney.

Delaney (6’0/200) spent just one season at The U after transferring from The Citadel, where he was a D-IAA All-American with 12 interceptions in his first three years. Delaney’s lone Hurricanes season didn’t go as planned, missing three games with a knee injury and starting 6-of-10 appearances. Delaney helped himself at the Combine with a 4.46 forty and 6.95 three-cone time. Big and athletic with ball skills, Delaney is a worthwhile developmental prospect with a chance to contribute at cornerback or safety.
May 2 - 8:11 PM

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that Miami is working on an extension for HC Mark Richt.

The report indicates that the extension would keep Richt in Miami for "years to come," but doesn't mention a specific time nor does it mention financial specifics. The 58-year-old coach has hit the ground running since being hired by the Hurricanes, posting a record of 19-7 in his first two years and keeping Miami in playoff contention for most of 2017. Don't be surprised if Richt is among the highest paid coaches in all of college football soon.
Apr 30 - 6:33 PM

ESPN's Tom VanHaaren lists Miami (FL) DL Gregory Rousseau as an early enroll player that could make an impact in 2018.

Most of the players VanHaaren lists are quarterbacks -- and with good reason -- but Rousseau has a chance to make an impact on the Hurricane defense as a freshman. While he wasn't the most high-profile recruit -- most services had him as a three-star prospect -- Rousseau has excellent size (6'7/250) and according to VanHaaren he "had dominant flashes during the spring and his development is way ahead of where the staff thought he would be." This is definitely a player to keep an eye on moving forward.

Panthers selected Miami DT Kendrick Norton with the No. 242 overall pick in the NFL draft.

Norton (6'3/314) was a surpise entrant into this year's draft as a junior after an underwhelming career at The U, managing five career sacks as a two-year starter. Not a particularly outstanding athlete, Norton will likely max out as an early-down run defender.
Apr 28 - 6:33 PM

Patriots selected Miami WR Braxton Berrios with the No. 210 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Berrios (5’9/184) was a reserve receiver and punt returner before taking over as the Hurricanes’ leading wideout as a senior, logging a team-best 55/679/12.3/9 stat line and registering a high-efficiency 121.1 passer rating when targeted. On punt returns, Berrios scored a touchdown as a junior and averaged an impressive 15.9 yards per return as a senior. Tiny with T-Rex arms (28"), Berrios profiles as a poor man’s Danny Amendola who isn’t quite as explosively quick and wasn’t as productive throughout college.
Apr 28 - 5:16 PM

Giants selected Miami DT RJ McIntosh with the No. 139 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

McIntosh (6’5/286) turned pro after three seasons at The U, logging 23 career tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks and earning second-team All-ACC in 2017. PFF College charted McIntosh with 30 run stops last season, fourth-most among draft-eligible interior defensive linemen. He also gave Notre Dame LG Quenton Nelson one of his toughest challenges all season last November. Not edge-rusher material, McIntosh managed a 5.12 forty and molasses-slow 7.78 three-cone time at the Hurricanes’ Pro Day. McIntosh’s best shot at a pro career will be to embrace a full-time three-technique role.
