  Miami defensive lineman Akheem Mesidor looked good in practice Wednesday. Coaches expect him to be a full-speed player on Saturday. The sophomore, who spent the last two years with the West Virginia Mountaineers before transferring to Miami in April, logged four tackles, a sack and a pass defended in his debut for the Hurricanes in Week 1 before sitting out Week 2 with a lower-leg injury. Mesidor wore a boot on his right foot Saturday as he watched from the sideline at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens. - Miami Herald

  Akheem Mesidor is part of a massive wave of incoming transfers along the Miami Hurricanes' defensive line, but the 6-3, 280-pound sophomore doesn't want to just get lost in the shuffle. He arrived later than some of these transfers - he didn't enroll at Miami until May - and, coupled with offseason shoulder surgery, it means Mesidor knows he has to make up ground in training camp, and he's trying to do anything he can to catch up. So far, fall camp has consisted of four different install sessions and Mesidor has paired every one with some outside study.

With every session, Mesidor has met up with Rod Wright to watch film, and pick the defensive ends coach's brain for an hour or hour and a half. "I've been getting with Coach Wright every time we have an install, just getting extra work in, so I can know the insides and outs," said Mesidor, who's originally from Ottawa and went to high school at Clearwater Academy International. "The biggest thing I need in order to play is the coaches' trust. That's what I'm trying to gain right now." It's the sort of off-the-field work the Hurricanes were counting on from Mesidor, after they lured him away from West Virginia in April. At this point, the defensive lineman's talent isn't a question - he totaled 9 1/2 sacks in his two seasons at West Virginia and was the top-ranked transfer in Miami's class, according to 247Sports' ratings - and it means there's an opportunity for him to play a major role right away, as long as he can quickly pick up the defense. - Miami Herald
