Hot prospects: The Hurricanes pulled a major coup Thursday with the hiring of former Florida State quarterbacks coach James Coley as offensive coordinator. Coley was a top recruiter for the Seminoles, and parts of Miami-Dade County were his recruiting area. Five-star LB Matthew Thomas of Miami Booker T. Washington is one of the players still considering Miami and FSU, and Coley was his lead recruiter. Coley's hiring is expected to majorly affect how the Hurricanes finish during the final week of the recruiting process. Miami also remains in the hunt for RB Alex Collins, WR Stacy Coley and WR Jordan Cunningham.
