While the Miami Hurricanes looked to close several high-profile recruits this weekend, football fans nationwide saw ‘The U’ displayed on the main stage as eleven Canes were named to the 2010 Pro Bowl:
Andre Johnson, Vince Wilfork, Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Brandon Meriweather, Frank Gore, Jon Beason, Bryant McKinnie, Antrel Rolle, Jon Vilma and Reggie Wayne were all Pro Bowl bound this year – though some didn’t play due to injury, Super Bowl appearances or the nameless former Cane who skipped practice and got the boot.
A testament to the program, as well as a reminder that UM’s on the field success isn’t that far in the rearview. Lewis is Miami’s veteran – in the league since 1996 – while guys like Beason and Rolle were getting it done at ‘The U’ few years back.
Potential Canes and current recruits – look at the talent around you, seek the common theme and realize that Miami is a cut above. You want to play your college ball at the home of the Pro Bowl and Super Bowl? Here’s your chance.
