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.

  4. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Sunday's Rays-Orioles game

    The Heater

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — Chris Archer had another bad game Sunday.

    Chris Archer is sputtering to the finish line, his rough start on Sunday his fourth in his past five in which he hasn’t gotten past four innings.
