I am going to be brutally honest here and say that the Hurricanes' defensive tackle position was horrific last season. I know that many of you blame defensive coordinator Mark D'Onofrio, but the talent on the line isn't great at all.
A healthy Curtis Porter would help tremendously, but the rest of the defensive line is a problem.
As it stands now, the Hurricanes have already received verbal commits from two defensive tackles, but there are more on the radar come next Wednesday.
Dee Liner, Keith Bryant and Jay-nard Bostwick are current Cane possibilities, and it would be huge if the Canes' could snag them all.
I don't believe Liner will come to Miami even though the Hurricanes are on his short list. I think the ex-Auburn commit will stay home in Alabama.
Late last year I thought defensive tackle Keith Bryant was a lock to come to Miami, but he has been constantly talking about Florida State on Twitter.
The best shot for the Hurricanes should be Jay-nard Bostwick. Last December, Miami was in the lead for his services, but on Jan. 11 took a visit to Alabama and has scheduled a visit to Florida on Feb. 1.
My gut feeling is he chooses Miami and somehow the Hurricanes get Bryant, giving Miami exactly what it needs heading into the upcoming season—more competition on the defensive line.
