1st Recruiting Breakdown

This is just the beginning. I will be bringing you my outlook on 3 or 4 commits everyday, starting today. Two of the three guys I believe will possibly have an immediate impact on the program:

Ray Ray Armstrong- 5 star Athlete out of just recently crown 6A State Champions Sanford Seminole(FL). aT 6'4, 218lbs. he is physically impsong already. Projects as a S/OLB at Miami. Always seems to be around the ball and always looking to make the big hit. Fits into the mold of a Sean Taylor type player. I know those aren't words you just throw around, but he does look that good. Really excited about this kid. Committed to Miami. Offers: USC, Florida, FSU, Georgia, LSU and more...

Cory White- 3 star TE/OL out of Jacksonville Fleming Island(FL). From a recent interview he says he is up from 6'4, 225lbs. to 6'6, 250lbs. Says he does not care where he plays, but he does enjoy playing OL. Played LT this past year. If he has gained that much weight and grown 2 inches, that could be a good sign he could gain a bit more and be that prototype LT we all are looking for. But i don't know if i see him gaining another 40lbs. But who knows. I see him redshirting and trying to put on that weight. Committed to Miami. Offers: FAU, FIU, Troy

Lamar Miller- 4 star RB out of Miami Killian(FL). 5'11, 205lbs. and a 4.4secs forty (has been timed as loww as 4.28). Just one piece of the three-headed monster we have committed at the RB position. Could possibly be the best all around back we have in this class. His high school coach Steve Smith has said he is very versatile. They have spread him out as a receiver and all due to the very good hands he has. Look for him to possibly gets some carries early and make an immediate impact in the return game. Needs to work on his strength a bit. Committed to Miami. Offers: West Virginia, UCF, Clemson.

Later we will have some bios of current OC candidates. Stay tuned...



  1. Lamar defintnely has the potential to be the biggest pick up of this class. His combination of speed and power reminds alot of a young Frank Gore.Ray Ray is definitley a freak talent that could be from that Ed Reed/Sean Taylor mold cause of his knack for making big plays.Cory is a good talent but is probely a project as a OL that would probely need that redshirt to improve his technique.Love the blog so far Jazz!

  2. Not everyone who is tall and plays safety will be sean taylor..somehow every year there is a safety that is going to be taylor / reed combo...but i have yet to see him....first let the kid get to school and be himself because then if hes not sean taylor he sucks.....anthony leon was supposed to be sean taylor...where is he now?
