University Of Miami = University Of Drew Rosenhaus?

As of my most recent count after he signed University of Miami running back Lamar Miller, Drew Rosenhaus of Rosenhaus Sports Representation had a total of five Hurricanes signed who are eligible to be selected in the 2012 NFL Draft.  Time to bump that number up to a new total of seven.

Within the past couple of weeks, Rosenhaus signed Standard Representation Agreements (SRAs) with former Canes Olivier Vernon and Brandon Washington.  Vernon played defensive end for the Canes, while Washington was a left-tackle who earned All-ACC honors after his Sophomore season.  Both players are leaving their remaining eligibility on the table by declaring for the NFL Draft and signing with an agent.

Vernon was suspended for six games and played in six games this past season.  The six game suspension was a result of receiving impermissible benefits from former University of Miami booster Nevin Shapiro.

Rosenhaus has now signed all five Miami Hurricanes early entrants: Olivier Vernon, Brandon Washington, Lamar Miller, Tommy Streeter, and Marcus Forston.  He has also signed former Miami quarterback Jacory Harris and linebacker Sean Spence.

His employee we all remember with the North Carolina party wristbands was hanging out in the bathrooms of some of the award shows offering cash and bounties.  SPARTA and Florida law doesn’t matter.
