DURHAM — Miami lists some crazy number of young players, sophomores or younger, on its depth chart, 18 on its two-deep, but Duke coach David Cutcliffe said that doesn't mean the young Canes are too green for ACC football.
Cutcliffe said Tuesday south Florida, specifically the county that includes Miami, is a recruiting hotbed because of the quality of football played there. Miami starting LB Sean Spence is one that cut his football teeth nearby.
Cutcliffe should know, he recruited Dade County for years as an offensive coordinator at Tennessee. In this audio clip, Cutcliffe talks about how he even recruited, and lost out on, University of Miami coach and alum Randy Shannon.
