There has not been much recruiting activity in the linebacker position group.  A major prospect, Sh’mar Kilby-Lane, did reveal he no longer had any interest in Miami.  Oh well.  Next… The state of Florida lacks LB depth this year.  That probably explains why we saw only one additional offer this past month.  As the Miami staff begins recruiting out-of-state this month, look for more offers to talented linebackers. As of this date, the Canes have offered 24 linebackers, as compared to 36 offers in total during the 2014 cycle.  Miami signed a total of 4 LBs (Young, Owens, Smith and McCray) in the 2014 class.  As a result, look for Miami to take only 2, maybe 3 linebackers in the 2015 class.  The Canes have landed on commitment from Charles Perry.  Linebacker is just not a major position of need this year for the Canes.
