08:22 AM ET 05.23 | But wait, there's more ...! University of Miami coach Al Golden says he's not through chasing quarterbacks for 2012 despite enticing former Memphis starter Ryan Williams to transfer to Miami. The Hurricanes have three, maybe four, quarterbacks on board for 2012. Along with Williams and Stephen Morris, UM has a solid commitment from Clearwater Countryside's Gray Crow, ranked as the nation's 28th-best QB prospect by Scout.com. The Hurricanes have also invited Westminster Christian's David Thompson, a UM baseball commitment, to play football, although it's believed Thompson is leaning towards a career in pro baseball. Golden said he's hoping to sign at least one quarterback who can enroll at Miami in January and participate in spring practice.

Al is figuring that the law of averages says if you try enough guys, one will turn out to be decent. I don't recommend that approach, personally.

From what we've seen this spring, there should be plenty of disgruntled QBs looking for a place to land...if you are willing to take on the disgruntled.

5 QB's and 5 OL is not a good idea.

FSU has surprised the HE11 out of me with their recruiting. Apparently Jimbo knows a thing or two.

It's just weird they never even mention him when talking about their QB picture.

You mean kind of like Boise dominates their conference?

They are going to dominate the ACC imo the next few years...which won't be that difficult.

45-17 Go Noles!

Recruiting has been big for Fisher not just because he learned from Bowden & Saban, but because he put a talented class of assistant coaches around him who were not only great coaches, but great recruiters. Look at the #7 2010 recruiting class, they're playing awesome. Now comes in the #1 2011 recruiting class. And for you all who don't know, since this is a story about UM that number above is the score of last years FSU vs. UM game down in Miami. I was there.
