Our first blog on recruiting and it begins with a ticking clock. Tomorrow, Thursday January 15th, 2009 at 12:30 pm EST current UM soft commit, 6ft 3, 239 pound defensive end Olivier Vernon is set to announce his destination. To qualify for his designated early enrollment, he would have to be in class on January 20th. Classes have already commenced for FSU and Alabama, Olivier's other two choices. The chances of him becoming part of the illustrious University of Miami 2009 recruiting class are strong, but considering how he's been wavering the past few months nothing is certain. Regardless of his decision, we wish him the best and hope to welcome him with open arms as a fellow hurricane.
Coming up sometime this weekend, hopefully by Friday or Saturday, we will have a breakdown of each recruit UM has commited to them already, followed the next day with a breakdown and news of each recruit that is visiting the upcoming weeks.
