Miami Hurricanes practice notes: Honing in on the details

CORAL GABLES — A day before their second scrimmage of camp, the Hurricanes are trying for perfection.

Mark Richt was hard on his first-team offense Friday, raising his voice as he coached them through a two-minute drill during the media viewing portion of camp.

Malik Rosier, who remains the first quarterback up in drills, worked with tight end Chris Herndon and receivers Braxton Berrios, Lawrence Cager in the hurry-up.  Joining them: freshman Mike Harley, playing the ‘Y’ with Ahmmon Richards riding the bike.

It’s unclear if Richards, who has been conditioning the last two days, will scrimmage. Miami may elect to hold out its top wideout.

Richt will address the media after practice.

N’Kosi Perry, who remains the third QB up in drills, was sticking close to Richt, trying to pick up tips.

One thing Perry needs to learn (along with how to operate under center): how to slide. Perry had a couple less-than-pretty attempts during one early drill.

* Freshman injury report: Evidence Njoku (knee) and Zalon’tae Hillery (foot/ankle) remain out.  Robert Burns (shoulder) is still in a no-contact jersey. Waynmon Steed (knee) continues to work off to the side. Hayden Mahoney (unknown) appeared to be full-go, after a couple days of conditioning.

* Defensive tackle Jon Ford participated for the second day. No, his appearance yesterday wasn’t a dream. Ford will be allowed to run through full-contact drills on Tuesday, his fifth practice. He won’t scrimmage Saturday.
