Bradon McGee keeping it cool before NFL draft

CORAL GABLES — Less than a week before the NFL draft, it's starting to feel real for Brandon McGee. The former Miami cornerback is projected as a mid-to-late round pick in the three-day event starting Thursday in New York.

In the meantime, McGee is working out with personal trainer Tony Sands in Fort Lauderdale. He's just trying to comprehend the realization of his dream could be just days away.

"Oh, man, It's significant at this point," McGee said Friday. "I'm just sitting back, waiting on the phone call. It's a blessing just to be in this position. I know a lot of people have a projection and this and that, but at the end of the day, nobody really knows."

McGee said NFL scouts are telling him he could go as early as the mid rounds.

•Miami learned Friday when it would renew its football rivalry with Notre Dame. The ACC announced the next three years of the Fighting Irish's games in its new arrangement with the conference.

The Hurricanes will travel to South Bend in 2016. A return date would come sometime after that. They met last season in Chicago with the Irish crushing Miami, 41-3 in the first regular-season meeting since 1990.

•A few members of the Miami men's basketball team will throw out the first pitch of Saturday's UM baseball game. Coach Jim Larranaga and all members of the team were invited to participate before the 1 p.m. game with Clemson at Alex Rodriguez Park.Players will also sign autographs after the pitch.
