The Miami Hurricanes welcomed back offensive lineman Seantreal Henderson to practice today. He had been out on bereavement leave and it had become the subject of much team conjecture and a daily questioned posed to head coach Al Golden.
"It's a non-story," Golden said when fielding his daily 'Where's Seantreal?' questions today. He did confirm that he was back but needed a few days to get up to speed. Golden also said the grind of camp has been difficult, but that the team was making "sacrifices," in hopes of improving.
Fifth year wide out, Kendall Thompkins has been the recipient of much praise for his performance in camp up to this point. "I really think it's time, we've just been putting in a lot of work in the off season. Not only me, but just as a team, we should be able to do something really special this year."
Thompkins is following the lead of Allen Hurns who is said to be stronger and faster and is the expected No. 1 target for this year's wide out corps. Phillip Dorsett is not far behind and feels like he needs to "step up," considering the number of true freshmen at his position. It's unknown, he said, how they'll respond when the "bright lights" are turned on.
Offensively, Stephen Morris appears to be taken the lead at the quarterback position. He's excited about the team's energy. "I think it's going great. A lot of guys are just so energetic and so happy to be here. It's really fun to be out here right now."
The team will get back to practice tomorrow at 8:20 a.m.. during their first full week of camp. Media day will be this Saturday, August 11th, beginning at 11 a.m.
