Ferguson Signs With LSU, Another Blow to Miami's Recruiting

Strongside defensive end J.R. Ferguson just signed with LSU Tigers over the Miami Hurricanes. Ferguson according to Rivals is a four star prospect, 6th best defensive end, and 31st overall player. 

This is now a huge blow to this recruiting class since Miami was a finalist to numerous recruits such as Ivan McCartney (West Virginia), Shon Colemon (Auburn), Jeffrey Whitaker (Auburn), Christian Jones (FSU) all signed with different teams. Miami is still finalist for five star offensive lineman Sentrel Henderson and Josh Shirley but both are expected to sign with USC. Ferguson was expected to be the one top player of the finalists to sign with the Hurricanes. Hopefully Henderson or Shirley ends up a Cane.

Even if Miami doesn't sign one of these recruits, their recruiting class should still be in the top 20 with all of the quality lineman. With the new strategy of pursuing sleepers in this years class instead of recruiting the higher end players, the Miami coaching staff and these new Hurricanes might in the end prove all the critics wrong by ushering a new tradition of winning in the future.
