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.

  1. After offseason of work hard, play hard, DeSean Jackson ready to produce for Bucs


    TAMPA — There's no telling what DeSean Jackson will do once he gets a football in his hands.

  2. Rays journal: Jake Odorizzi goes on 10-day DL with back strain

    ST. PETERSBURG — RHP Jake Odorizzi is hoping his struggles this season can be tied directly to the lower-back strain he has tried to pitch through since spring training. Toward that end, the Rays placed Odorizzi on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday retroactive to Tuesday.

    It is going to get interesting tonight when the Rays begin a four-game series against the Yankees in New York. The Rays feel they are good enough to win the East Division. These next four games and the four that follow in Houston will be a good measuring stick.
