Scott is 1st to send signed letter to Miami

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Rashawn Scott had a fax machine at
Miami buzzing at 7:01 a.m. Wednesday.

The wide receiver from Melbourne, Fla., was the first player to
join the Hurricanes on the first signing day under new coach Al
Golden.

By 6 a.m., the Hurricanes' football offices were teeming with
excitement and anticipation. Three other players joined the team
earlier: Defensive lineman Olsen Pierre and cornerback Thomas
Finnie enrolled last month, and tight end Blake Ayles transferred
from USC.

But signing day is like no other for coaches, and an hour later
when Scott's letter was the first to arrive in the fax machine
outside Golden's office, the beginning of a new era at Miami had
arrived.
