Has anyone heard anything re: Forston not being happy with the commitment of the players currently at Miami to the football team...? Apparently CB is still working hard on him.

 

 

Here is an article somewhat related to the topic.

 

 

Even The Miami Recruits Are Calling Out Present Players at the "U"

Following an embarrassing and epic loss to Virginia to close out the Orange Bowl, you would expect the former Hurricane players to be upset. You would expect the usual talking points of how they need to get their swagger back. How the present players aren't representing well. Whatever.

 

What you don't expect are the incoming Hurricane players -- high school kids -- ripping the present players.

On Tuesday, UM players reacted angrily to comments by Seffner Armwood High offensive tackle Matt Patchan, whose father played for UM. But UM oral commitment Marcus Forston of Miami Northwestern and UM target Brandon Harris of Miami Booker T. Washington said in phone interviews that Patchan's comments were dead-on.

 

Patchan, who attended UM's 48-0 loss to Virginia, told canesport.com that 'there's too many guys that it doesn't bother them that they lost the game. There's too many guys now at the U that [say], `It's OK we lost. Well, what am I going to do tonight?' Like it doesn't mean anything. They need to get rid of those types of guys.''

 

Forston, a top-rated defensive tackle who attended Saturday's Canes game, said he remains a strong UM commitment, but agrees with Patchan. ''Some guys are not giving full effort,'' Forston said. ``It surprised me. A couple [uM] guys were smiling. I didn't see too much cheering teammates on the sideline. I'm not used to that type of environment.''

 

Harris, a highly regarded cornerback, was at the OB on Saturday and said Patchan's comments ``are true. Some guys care. Some guys don't. You can sense it. Some are just coasting.''

And these are recruits likely committed to coming to Miami.

 

On the one hand, you have to be happy that the kids coming into Miami actually seem to care more than the players on their way out. Especially since the 'Canes recruiting class is considered a top-5, and the kids have a better chance of starting early.

 

On the other side, is the obvious fact that they won't exactly be welcomed with open arms with present players being questioned by high schoolers.

 

Coach Randy Shannon is stuck in the middle. Caught between keeping the present squad together and recruiting the same high schoolers questioning the heart and desire of those players.

fortson would be a HUGE get!!!! he plays on the #1 team in the nation,that plays against top teams!

 

I grew up down here and played in the same conference as Northwestern. It is the best football in Florida and one of the tops in the country.

 

The U has about 7 guys that are soft verbals now. i don't think Forston will leave this area. I have said if many times on here. Guys from the Liberty City area of Miami just don't leave very often. I see him taking some trips and probably coming back strong to Miami.

 

With that said, if Corwin can convince him to go "North to South Bend", I am all for it.

I have this sneaking suspicion that Florida is going to be the biggest beneficiary of Miami's horrible season... PJ, Forston, Patchan and A.Brown all have a chance of ending up as Gators.

What - someone on an ND board said Go Canes. What is the world coming to. It seems as tho our rivals are now teams we don't play like Illinois and Florida. My grandpa is a Miami alum and I still can't stand the Canes. And my brother goes to Illinois, so I am kind of a fan. And that is not blasphemous at all.

Ha, I cannot stand the Canes. However, Florida definitely has the talent to win another NC in the next few years, especially if they get guys like Forston, Patchan, etc. That is something I do not think I could stomach. I'd rather have the recruits go to the Canes and have them try to work out the mess that is Miami.

Forston could've been Irish and it looked like it was going to happen until ND got both Hunter and Newman.

 

It would be such an awesome get but there's no chance of it happening now.

 

ND, along with every other school not named Miami, had no chance with Forston. Forston goes ot Northwester, a Miami pipeline and the only reason Florida has a chance to pull him is because of this year's collapse of Miami and the fallout you are hearing between recruits and players.

all forston would have to do is show up on campus now. trust me, he wouldn't even get off the plane.............

 

Agreed. Karma dictates he will have a great college career down south and get drafted by Buffalo. Move off on Fortson and focus on Moore and Jones.

Honestly, I think that the O Train is a better player....why he isn't a 5* is beyond me....they guy was amazing in the Herbie classic up in Ohi-ho!!! I see nothing in Forston's film that would lead me to believe that he is better than the O-Train!!! NOTHING!!! Sorry Forston you had your chance...bring on the Tweeners!!!
