CORAL GABLES — A few notes from the early portion of Friday’s practice, the ninth of camp and last before UM’s first scrimmage of camp:

* UM is focused on preparing for Saturday’s scrimmage, which is expected to end around noon. It’s at Hard Rock Stadium, and CanesFest is afterward (12-4 p.m.), but the scrimmage is closed to the public and media. Mark Richt will address reporters afterward.

* Quarterback play, obviously, is the No. 1 item on Richt’s agenda. During the media viewing portion of Friday’s practice, the order of quarterbacks was Malik Rosier, N’Kosi Perry, Evan Shirreffs and Cade Weldon. That may or may not mean anything.

Malik Curry continues to run as the second-string tight end.

* Linebacker Jamie Gordinier was conditioning before practice alongside Michael Pinckney (hamstring) and Waynmon Steed (knee). Charles Perry, who was wearing a sling on his right elbow before Wednesday’s practice, was in the weight room Friday. Running back Robert Burns (shoulder) remains in a no-contact jersey.

* Freshman wideout Jeff Thomas, who was conditioning on Monday, rejoined the team during punt return drills.  Braxton Berrios was with the crew, too, alongside DeeJay Dallas and Lawrence Cager.
