Summer summary: Miami
By ESPN.com staff
Our summer series continues today taking a look back at the highlights from summer camp for each team in the ACC. Miami is up next, and while the NCAA investigation has no doubt been one of the biggest stories in all of college football, let’s go ahead and focus on what Miami has accomplished on the field this month:
- The quarterback competition has been a dead heat. In the most recent scrimmage, seven yards separated Jacory Harris and Stephen Morris. Both of them have performed similarly with completions, attempts, touchdowns, interceptions, and other relevant statistics kept by the coaching staff.
- Freshmen, redshirt freshmen and transfer players have performed well enough in summer camp to earn significant playing time. Mike Williams, who transferred from Wake Forest, could earn a starting job in the secondary. Receiver Phillip Dorsett has been very poised and could also be a starter. Tommy Streeter is more confident now, and those within the program sense his summer success will translate into games. Anthony Chickillo has also likely earned himself some meaningful snaps on the defensive line.
- The offensive line has been a highlight, as the players have been moving well and working well together. Tyler Horn has taken on a leadership role, not only for the line, but the offense and entire team as well. Seantrel Henderson’s back injury was the most notable injury of the summer, and there’s still no timetable for when he’ll return.
- Safety Vaughn Telemaque has had a particularly impressive summer, and overall, the entire team has been closer than usual, and hung out together more off the field.
