2017 NBA Draft: Final projections for Davon Reed, Miami Hurricanes G

Davon Reed’s defense is a selling point for NBA teams. (Getty Images) Will former Hurricanes shooting guard Davon Reed hear his name called Thursday? That’s up for debate. One veteran NBA scout told The Post that Reed is draftable as a ready-to-play prospect who shoots 3s and plays good defense, but may not have the upside to warrant a selection Thursday,...

2017 MLB Draft: Miami Hurricanes likely to lose top high school prospects

The draft won’t create too many holes in Miami’s lineup. (Twitter.com/CanesBaseball) A bit of good news and bad news for UM baseball, which is sitting out the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1972: Its current roster likely won’t be decimated by the MLB Draft, but as usual, several Hurricanes signees could be drafted high, turn pro and never make it to campus.

Hurricanes in good hands with Richt, Larranaga and James

Mark Richt had several options once his tenure at Georgia ended in late November 2015, including not coaching at all. He used the word “thankful” to describe the decision he made. When he agreed to coach Miami, he “had a certain idea of how things would go, or at least there was a vision of what I thought could happen,” he said. “I think we’re well on our way to...

Miami’s Mark Richt cautiously optimistic about signing day change

Miami’s Mark Richt cautiously optimistic about signing day change

The apparent goal of an early signing period, in the best intentions of college football’s administrators, was to make it easier on recruits. Those with a firm college decision would lock up a spot early, and go back to enjoying the last moments of their time as high school students. For some, it appears the pressure may have shifted. Speaking at the ACC’s spring meetings in Amelia Island...

Florida State, Miami facing some major issues coming out of spring practice

Hale asked. “He...

Dalvin Cook might have fallen to the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, but he consistently provided Florida State with first-round production over his three seasons in Tallahassee.

Big things happen for state players in second round

The NFL Draft is a time for players to wear custom-cut suits, sparkling shoes and more gold than Scrooge McDuck had in his vault. Quincy Wilson made a fashion statement of a different kind.

2017 NFL Draft: TE David Njoku merits hard look from Miami Dolphins

When David Njoku left high school, he never pictured himself developing into an NFL tight end. Now people can’t imagine him doing anything else. He looks back on his arrival at the University of Miami in 2014 and sees a scrawny receiver compared to the impeccable physique he has now. Njoku packed on 26 pounds to put himself at 6-foot-4, 246 pounds—with 6 percent body fat—and now...
