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.

MIAMI BEACH - The Orthodox Jewish grandmother who founded and operated the World Erotic Art Museum here may be gone, but her shrine to the sensual, the steamy, the spicy, the salacious is still one of South Beach's cheekiest attractions. Its days (and nights), however, could be numbered. Naomi Wilzig, the feisty 80-year-old widow of a New Jersey bank president and oil tycoon, created the museum in 2005 to exhibit her collection of more than 4,000 works of erotica - said to be the largest private trove in the United States - and each year, an average of 30,000 visitors came to look.

MIAMI - It's unknown if there were any broken bats or thrown helmets littered in the visiting dugout at Marlins Park yesterday afternoon, but Ryan Howard was not a happy person when he struck out for the second time in as many at-bats to begin the day against Jarred Cosart. He was angry. He was consoled by hitting coach Steve Henderson, who simply told him, "keep battling. " The frustration helped fuel the Phillies' come-from-behind win. Howard launched a game-tying triple in the sixth inning and added a run-scoring single in the seventh as the Phillies beat the Marlins, 6-2, ending a five-game losing streak and avoiding a three-game sweep in Miami.

MIAMI - The Phillies' pitching staff has walked 103 batters in 26 games this season; that is 10 more than the next closest team. The relief corps has issued 47 of those walks in 80 1/3 innings; that's also the most in baseball. The pitchers have been talked to about it. There have been meetings. But eventually the guys with the ball in their hands have to make it happen. Justin De Fratus did just that in a big spot yesterday afternoon. After the Phillies took a 3-2 lead in the top of the sixth in Miami, De Fratus charged out of the bullpen and needed just 10 pitches to blitz through the meat of the Marlins' batting order.

NEW YORK - Quenton DeCosey's last shot, which proved to be the final one of this extended Temple season, looked to be on target, and according to the shooter it felt awfully good. DeCosey, never one to shy away from the big moment, fired from the left wing at the top of the key. His eyes got big and his heart was pumping. The three-point attempt at the buzzer, which would have sent the game into overtime, bounced off the back of the rim, and as things happen this time of year, Temple's basketball season ended abruptly.

MIAMI -  In a lot of ways, the current crop of both the 76ers and the Miami Heat are very similar. Both sets of players are trying to learn one another after a bevy of moves and some recent injuries have changed their rosters. The big difference, of course, is that the Sixers are looking ahead to the distant future, while the Heat is trying to look ahead to a possible playoff spot this season. Miami handed the Sixers their 10th consecutive road loss last night, using a huge third quarter to break open a close game and grab a 119-108 win in improving to 24-31.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - The first sign that things are different now for Ja'Quan Newton is his attire. He arrived to a media session on Wednesday wearing warm-up pants and a T-shirt - not his normal January winter wardrobe. Another radical change for Newton, a 6-foot-2 freshman point guard for the Miami Hurricanes, is his playing time. After a brilliant prep career at Neumann-Goretti High - he was ranked the No. 1 prospect in Pennsylvania and No. 37 in the nation, according to Rivals.com - Newton is now a reserve, averaging 12.6 minutes per game.

SOME STORIES just need to be passed along in as many forums as possible. It doesn't matter if there is no real connection to your area of coverage or typical daily content. Some stories are so good that as many people as possible need to be made aware of them, just because they are the type of stories that make our world a little bit brighter. We had one of those in our region on Friday night when Rowan University pitcher Richie Suarez was named winner of the 2015 Most Courageous Athlete Award at the 111th Philadelphia Sports Writers Association annual dinner.

IS JOEY MERLINO still the head of the Philadelphia mob? He says no. The feds aren't so sure. But few can argue with this: He's probably the only maitre d' in the country who can do a four-month prison stint and still have a job waiting for him when he returns. Merlino, 52, must report to a federal detention center in Miami at 2 p.m. today. A Philadelphia judge ruled in October that he had violated the terms of his supervised release on a 2001 racketeering conviction by associating with an old mob pal at a cigar bar in June.
