Stacy Coley, a 6-1, 180-pound freshman receiver out of Oakland Park Northeast High, continues to dominate in fall camp. During Friday’s final fall scrimmage, Coley caught two touchdowns from backup quarterback Ryan Williams. And in Sunday’s practice report from UM, he was noted for catching three touchdown passes from starter Stephen Morris during the full-pads morning session.

“On the third touchdown,” the report said, “freshman linebacker Alex Figueroa tipped Morris’ pass, but Coley caught the deflection in stride for the score.”

Williams told reporters Sunday that the scrimmage touchdowns “weren’t very hard throws. He probably did most of the work. One of them was 30 or 40 yards and the other was 10.”

Added Williams: “It’s just good that he’s finally picking up the offense and knowing where he’s supposed to be and not having to rely on the quarterback to tell him what he has every play. He’s been studying so hard that he can go out there and play as fast as he can and just make plays.”

• Defensive coordinator Mark D’Onofrio said the Canes made “significant improvement” in their tackling during the second scrimmage, and “improved on run defense, red zone and third down.”

• In injury news, junior defensive lineman David Perry and freshman offensive lineman Alex Gall wore yellow noncontact jerseys.
