Canes offered Calif. DE last week

Westlake Village, Calif., Oaks Christian defensive end Michael Ebbitt says he received a scholarship offer in the mail last week from the Canes.

"I have 16 offers now," he said. "I'm definitely interested in Miami. I've talked to most of the Miami coaches. They just said they're real excited about me and want me to come down there and check it out this summer. I'm going to do that the end of June or in July."
