John Rochford of Mainland High in Atlantic County, considered among the best high school linemen in the area, has made a verbal commitment to attend the University of Miami. The 6-foot-3, 290-pound Rochford told the Miami coaching staff of his decision late Saturday. During the spring, he had made unofficial visits to Miami and Penn State. Rochford said that he was also considering North Carolina, Maryland, Boston College, Iowa and Wisconsin. According to NCAA rules, a high school football recruit may not officially sign a letter of intent until Feb. 5. "I really liked the school and loved the coaching staff," Rochford said.

Dwayne Hendricks, the all-American defensive end from Millville High, has made an oral commitment to attend the University of Miami on a football scholarship, Millville coach Dave Heck said last night. The 6-foot-4, 250-pound Hendricks, The Inquirer's South Jersey defensive player of the year last fall, had narrowed his choices down to Miami or Virginia. He also visited Iowa and Michigan. Miami's defensive linemen are coached by Greg Mark, the former Pennsauken standout. "Dwayne's always gotten along well with Greg, and Miami is really the place he's always wanted to go," Heck said.

MIAMI - Once-woeful Miami won for the fourth time in its last five games on Sunday, beating Oakland 34-14. Reggie Bush ran for 100 yards and a touchdown, Matt Moore had a hand in two TDs and Kevin Burnett returned an interception 34 yards for Miami's final score. The surge came after the Dolphins (4-8) lost their first seven games. In the past five weeks they've outscored opponents 139-54, with the lone loss a one-point defeat at Dallas on Thanksgiving. "We've been on a wild ride here," Moore said.

Brooklawn has lost its opening game at the 68th American Legion World Series, in Boyertown. But coach Joe Barth and the New Jersey team's star pitcher, Jack Marcellus, say the young squad still has a solid shot at staying alive in the double- elimination tournament and winning the national title Tuesday at Bear Stadium. A strong and experienced Miami team used one big inning yesterday to slip past Brooklawn, 5-3, dropping Post 72 into the losers' bracket. Brooklawn was scheduled to play in the second game of a doubleheader this morning against Bedford, Va., which lost last night to Salem, Ore., 4-1. "We still have plenty of pitching, and that's what you need in the losers' bracket," Barth said.

Everything is happening in threes for the Villanova women's basketball team. The Wildcats, who live and die with the three-point shot, are hitting them with ease to stay among the leaders in the crowded Big East race. Well, actually, 'Nova remains in the logjam of teams fighting for second behind top-ranked and unbeaten Connecticut. Last night, junior Katie Davis became trey-happy and Villanova overwhelmed Miami, 80-52, at the Pavilion. Davis reached a career high in three-pointers made after she shot 7 for 11 from beyond the arc. Going 9 for 13 from the field, she finished with 27 points, her career high.

The University of Miami's executive committee of the board of trustees will meet today to discuss moving from the Big East to the Atlantic Coast Conference. The university also will host the first of three ACC site visits Friday, the next step in a likely relocation that could drastically change the landscape of college athletics. Miami's executive committee will eventually vote on whether to join the ACC, but university officials don't expect it before the site visit. Teams of ACC officials including an athletic director, faculty representative and conference office official will travel to Miami tomorrow and tour the school's facilities Friday, according to a university source.

For the final 42 seconds, Wally Szczerbiak had to stand and watch. When the buzzer sounded, he was back in the middle of things, just as he'd been all night. Szczerbiak scored 29 points and host Miami of Ohio withstood a late rally by seventh-ranked Xavier, holding on for an 80-72 victory last night. Hundreds of fans chanted "Overrated," stormed the court and surrounded Szczerbiak and his teammates after the RedHawks' first victory over a Top 10 team in 24 years. "I wanted this one so bad," said Szczerbiak, a junior forward who fouled out with 42 seconds left and Miami (5-1)

Defensive lineman Nate Robinson, one of the highest-rated recruits in the country last year, has decided not to enroll at the University of Miami and will instead play at Rutgers. Robinson, a 6-foot-5, 305-pound tackle from Irvington, N.J., signed with Rutgers on Wednesday, after Miami would not declare him academically eligible. Robinson's SAT score of 800 meets the NCAA minimum for high school students with a 3.0 grade point average but is 20 points shy of Miami's institutional standard.

Miami used a superb pitching effort by Fernando Rodriguez and a balanced hitting attack to rout Chino (Calif.), 9-0, and claim the 68th American Legion World Series title last night in Boyertown. Rodriguez, a 19-year-old righthander who recently transferred to Florida International University from Alabama, did not allow an earned run in 32 innings through the Southeast Regional competition and the World Series. Last night, he struck out six, walked just one, and allowed five hits.

HAYDEN MAHONEY had a real-life crib sheet to help him through the sometimes-harrowing process of college-football recruiting. So, when Malvern Prep's 6-5, 270-pound junior lineman committed to the University of Miami on Saturday, he simply followed some family advice. "My brother went through this process and gave me advice on how you have to really connect with your position coach and you have to buy into what they're doing. And I really did," Hayden said via phone from a Florida airport yesterday afternoon just before his flight back to the family's Malvern home.

Malvern Prep's Hayden Mahoney, a junior offensive lineman, committed to the University of Miami on Saturday while on an unofficial visit to the school. The 6-foot-5, 280-pound tackle, who doubles as a defensive end, also had scholarship offers from Akron, Boston College, Elon, Old Dominion, and Villanova.

GIVEN THE Eagles' offensive success in 2013, it pretty much had to happen. A source close to the situation confirmed yesterday that Eagles quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor was interviewing in Miami for the Dolphins' offensive-coordinator opening. Lazor, 41, was the Virginia offensive coordinator before taking his current job on Chip Kelly's staff a year ago, but before that he was an NFL QBs coach with the Redskins and the Seahawks, and also spent a year on the Falcons' staff. Miami earlier this week fired offensive coordinator Mike Sherman, a mentor and friend to head coach Joe Philbin.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - La Salle headed to warm and sunny Miami to take on the Hurricanes on Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately for the Explorers, they could not overcome their cold shooting in a 71-58 defeat. The Explorers got out to a fast start, scoring 12 points in the first four minutes. The next 36 minutes were nothing like the first four. La Salle managed just 46 points the rest of the way. La Salle shot 38.3 percent from the floor (23 for 60), and sank just 7 of 18 attempts from beyond the arc. John Giannini gave credit to Miami's defense.

FROM 1987-2004, Florida State and Miami met 14 times when both were in the Top 10. In eight of those games both were unbeaten, including two openers. And in five, one (usually FSU) was first in the polls. There were three Wide Rights and even a Wide Left, none of which went FSU's way. Miami won 11, including the last five. Three were in Tallahasee. FSU was ranked higher in seven (three as No. 1). At some point you had to feel for Bobby Bowden. In five of those years that was his only loss.

A Heat threepeat? The Miami Heat are looking to become the first NBA team to win three straight titles since the Los Angeles Lakers from 2000-02. What's more impressive is that the Heat won last year with Dwyane Wade basically playing on one leg in the playoffs. LeBron James is dominating the league like no one since Michael Jordan was leading Chicago to six titles. James has won the league MVP title four times in the last five years. He was the MVP in the NBA Finals the last two years.

There is a spot on the Citizens Bank Park grass that will forever belong to Roy Halladay even if he never pitches again here for the Phillies. The sod has been replaced, as are the days when Halladay dared everyone to dream. Fourteen feet from home plate, on the lip of the dirt around home plate, is where Halladay achieved greatness one October evening. He took a long walk past his spot Tuesday at 8:42 p.m. He lowered his head. Six innings in a 6-4 victory over Miami served as positive reinforcement for a 36-year-old pitcher whose confidence wavered.
