UM announced late Monday night that camp had ended a day earlier than expected. The Hurricanes are now off until Thursday, with their attention shifting to the season opener against FAU.
Coach Al Golden said there’s “another 10 days of preparation where a lot of jobs are going to be determined.” He said about 50 percent of the starting spots “will be settled in those next six or seven practices.”
• Though there appears to be plenty of receivers for quarterback Stephen Morris, Golden said he is concerned about the depth at wideout. “If we get nicked up like we have been in the last couple days, I’m worried there,” he said, mentioning Malcolm Lewis (foot), Rashawn Scott and Allen Hurns as “nicked up.” All three practiced Monday.
In other injury news, sophomore safety Deon Bush (hernia surgery) is out of a noncontact jersey. “He’s progressed well,” Golden said.
• Golden said freshman running back Gus Edwards, who sat out the past several days while dealing with an NCAA Eligibility Center issue, “will be ready to go” Tuesday.
