    Palm Beach Post article on Ladarius Gunter

    Newcomer Ladarius Gunter made quick impact for Hurricanes this spring | 'Canes Watch blog: Miami Hurricanes | The Palm Beach Post

    The article mentions how physical Ladarius is. That was the main thing I took away from watching his highlight tape last December. The tape really did not indicate much about his coverage skills, but it left me with the impression that he tackles like a smash-mouth safety or even a linebacker.

    Well, if he got Perryman's attention with his tackling, that goes a long way toward impressing me!

    So, is he a sophomore or a junior? I thought he had 3 years left, but the article indicates he's a junior, which means 2 season left ...

    He and McGee would make a pair of really good size corners. They would certainly "look" the part.

    But I still wonder, ASSUMING Finnie, Howard, Bush, Crawford, and Hope can really play corner, if he's not a better fit at safety? Especially if Highsmith, Rogers, and Jenkins are the only players behind VT and RR.

    I'm pretty sure he's a Jr but I was confused for awhile too.

    For what it is worth, Scout, Rivals, and hurricanesports all list Ladarius as a junior in their roster listings, yet I very much seem to recall Coach Golden saying we had him for three years. Could it be something like three years to play two? I do not know.

    Other points:
    1. It's great that he is physical, but what I want most in both run defense and pass defense is consistency. I still have bad memories of Louis Oliver crushing somebody on one play and then whiffing on the next.

    2. I still do not have much of a read on his coverage skills, which are, after all, the most important ones for a CB.

    I guess Gunter will remain at corner.
