Is a Miami DB on the verge of decommitting?

For the last couple of weeks of spring ball, Miami coaches rode Corn Elder hard.

After Elder struggled early in camp, coach Mark Richt and his assistants wanted more.

In the Hurricanes’ final spring scrimmage, Elder delivered. He picked off the only interception Brad Kaaya threw all spring.

“Beautiful play by Corn,” Richt said.

“Corn Elder had a great day,” defensive coordinator Manny Diaz said. “He needs to take a bigger role in the summer.”

Elder needs to improve as a player and leader because Miami is thin and inexperienced in the secondary. Safety Rayshawn Jenkins has made 22 starts, followed by Elder with 10 and senior safety Jamal Carter with three. That’s it.

The Hurricanes are looking to add depth for the future in the secondary by actively pursuing prospects in the 2017 class. Three defensive backs are currently committed to Miami, but is one of those about to decommit?
