Miami coach Mark Richt joined 1010 XL Jax Sports Radio’s Rick Ballou and Joe Cowart during ACC Kickoff. Richt, who previously coached at Georgia before returning to his alma mater last season, discussed the talent pool he’s drawing from in south Florida.

“Those guys are fast,” Richt said. “A lot of those guys are underdeveloped either by the nutrition that their getting growing up compared to what they might get with us once they get to college. So many guys that — and I’m not into stars but people understand star ratings — you may have a guy that’s a 3-star guy in south Florida and if you took him out and you plucked him and stuck him in another area of the country he’d be like the best thing on the field like ‘oh my gosh, he’s a four or 5-star guy.”
