Canes land No. 1 CB in Tracy Howard

Florida State can't win 'em all.

Miami and coach Al Golden lured in Tracy Howard, the No. 1 cornerback recruit in the nation. Howard said Golden has a plan for the program's future and he bought into it.

"Why not win in my hometown and my city?" the Miramar native said on ESPNU. "Why not do it there?"

This was a big get for the Canes, and it proved that Golden can beat in-state rivals Florida State and Florida for the top talent in the country and the state.
