Re: New Commit! (Patrick Joyner Jr.)

Here's the thread on a Miami forum about this: https://www.canesinsight.com/threads/patrick-joyner-portal.167417/ Interesting to read the comments. A lot of folks say he is a tweener that bounced around LB and DE. He just never found his place at Miami. That's pretty true. Came in as a LB. Had some...

Re: Do we have scholarships to give?

Joyner is interesting. Really highly regarded in high school. Had some major injuries his first couple years at Miami. Miami had awful linebacker play this year and he couldn’t crack the field so if he’s coming here as a LB I’ll be surprised. I think he’d be a good rush end if he can get his weight ...

Re: Cash Gilliam

If we project to be well under the 85, and are light on bodies for the spring, I would welcome back a lot of these guys who initially entered the portal since it can get our roster number up without counting towards the 25 IC limit (provided they didn't burn bridges on the way out).

Re: Banda

Rumor on Miami boards is Banda might bring Demarcus Van Dyke to be the cornerbacks coach.

He has been an off-field staffer for Miami for a couple years and was a pretty good player there. Would be his first on-field coaching job but I think he would do a good job FWIW.
