Testosterone is a crucial hormone for men and plays an important role throughout the male lifespan. Most of a male's testosterone is produced through the testicles. Also called the male sex hormone, testosterone starts playing its part during puberty.
When a male goes through puberty, testosterone helps males develop:
As boys turn to men and men grow older, testosterone levels deplete naturally. Sometimes, events like injuries and chronic health conditions like diabetes can lower testosterone levels. Unfortunately, when a man loses too much T, it results in hypogonadism. When this happens, the testosterone must be replaced, or the male will suffer from symptoms like muscle loss, low libido, and even depression.
TRT is exactly what it sounds like: a treatment option for men that replaces testosterone so that your body regulates hormones properly and restores balance to your life. Also called androgen replacement therapy, TRT alleviates the symptoms that men experience with low T.
Originally lab-synthesized in 1935, testosterone has grown in popularity since it was produced. Today, TRT and other testosterone treatments are among the most popular prescriptions in the U.S.
Without getting too deep into the science, TRT works by giving your body the essential testosterone it needs to function correctly. As the primary androgen for both males and females, testosterone impacts many of the body's natural processes â especially those needed for overall health. For example, men with low T are more prone to serious problems like cardiovascular disease and even type-2 diabetes.
When your body quits making enough testosterone, it causes your health to suffer until a solution is presented. That's where TRT and anti-aging medicine for men can help. TRT helps balance your hormones and replenish your depleted testosterone. With time, your body will begin to heal, and many symptoms like low libido and irritability begin to diminish.
For men, aging is the biggest contributor to lower testosterone levels, though there are other causes like obesity, drug abuse, testicular injuries, and certain prescribed medications. Sometimes, long-term health conditions like AIDS, cirrhosis of the liver, and kidney disease can lower testosterone levels.
When a man's testosterone levels drop significantly, it alters his body's ratio of estrogen and testosterone. Lower testosterone levels cause more abdominal fat, which in turn results in increased aromatase, which converts even more testosterone into estrogen.
If you're concerned that you might have low T, you're not alone. Millions of men in the U.S. feel the same way. The best way to find out if your testosterone is low is to get your levels tested.
For sustainable testosterone replacement therapy benefits, you must consult with hormone doctors and experts like those you can find at Global Life Rejuvenation. That way, you can find the root cause of your hormone problems, and our team can craft a personalized HRT plan tailored to your needs.
One of the most common reasons that men choose TRT is because they have lost that "spark" with their partner. It's not easy for a man to hear that they're not performing like they used to. Intimacy is a powerful part of any relationship. When a once-healthy sex life dwindles, it can cause serious relationship issues.
The good news is that low libido doesn't have to be a permanent problem. TRT and anti-aging medicines help revert hormone levels back into their normal range. When this happens, many men have a more enjoyable life full of intimacy and sex drive.
Weak erections â it's an uncomfortable subject for many men in the U.S. to talk about. It's even worse to experience first-hand. You're in the midst of an intimate moment, and you can't do your part. Despite being perfectly normal, many men put blame and shame upon themselves when they can't achieve an erection. And while the inability to perform sexually can be caused by poor diet, obesity, and chronic health conditions, low testosterone is often a contributing factor.
Fortunately, weak erections are a treatable condition. The best way to regain your confidence and ability in bed is to speak with your doctor. Once any underlying conditions are discovered, options like TRT may be the best course of treatment.
Do you find it harder and harder to work out and lift weights in the gym? Are you having problems lifting heavy items that you once had no problem lifting?
Recent studies show that when men are inactive, they lose .5% of muscle strength every year, from ages 25 to 60. After 60, muscle loss doubles every decade. While some muscle loss is common as men age, a significant portion can be tied to low testosterone levels. When a man's T levels drop, so does his muscle mass.
Testosterone is a much-needed component used in gaining and retaining muscle mass. That's why many doctors prescribe TRT Miami Springs, FL, for men having problems with strength. One recent study found that men who increased their testosterone levels using TRT gained as much as 2.5 pounds of muscle mass.
Whether your gym performance is lacking, or you can't lift heavy items like you used to, don't blame it all on age. You could be suffering from hypogonadism.
If you're like millions of other men in their late 20s and 30s, dealing with hair loss is a reality you don't want to face. Closely related to testosterone decline and hormone imbalances, hair loss is distressing for many men. This common symptom is often related to a derivative of testosterone called DHT. Excess amounts of DHT cause hair follicles to halt their production, causing follicles to die.
Because hair located at the front and crown is more sensitive to DHT, it grows slower than other follicles and eventually stops growing permanently. Thankfully, TRT and anti-aging treatments for men in Miami Springs, FL, is now available to address hair loss for good.
While it's true that you can't change your genes, you can change the effects of low testosterone on your body. Whether you're suffering from thinning hair or hair loss across your entire head, TRT and other hormone therapies can stop hair loss and even reverse the process.
Also called "man boobs," gynecomastia is essentially the enlargement of male breast tissue. This increase in fatty tissue is often caused by hormonal imbalances and an increase in estrogen. For men, estrogen levels are elevated during andropause. Also called male menopause, andropause usually happens because of a lack of testosterone.
If you're a man between the ages of 40 and 55, and you're embarrassed by having large breasts, don't lose hope. TRT is a safe, effective way to eliminate the underlying cause of gynecomastia without invasive surgery. With a custom HRT and fitness program, you can bring your testosterone and estrogen levels back to normal before you know it.
Decreased energy was once considered a normal part of aging. Today, many doctors know better. Advances in technology and our understanding of testosterone show that low T and lack of energy often go hand-in-hand.
If you're struggling to enjoy activities like playing with your kids or hiking in a park due to lack of energy, it could be a sign of low T. Of course, getting tired is perfectly normal for any man. But if you're suffering from continual fatigue, a lack of enjoyment, or a decrease in energy, it might be time to speak with a doctor.
Whether you're having a tough time getting through your day or can't finish activities you used to love, TRT could help.
A study from 2011 showed that men who lose a week's worth of sleep can experience lowered testosterone levels â as much as 15%, according to experts. Additional research into the topic found almost 15% of workers only get five hours of sleep (or less) per night. These findings suggest that sleep loss negatively impacts T levels and wellbeing.
The bottom line is that men who have trouble sleeping often suffer from lower testosterone levels as a result. If you find yourself exhausted at the end of the day but toss and turn all night long, you might have low T.
TRT and anti-aging medicines can restore your T levels back to normal, which can help you sleep better with proper diet and exercise.
You're feeling down about everything, and there's no solid explanation for why you're in such a crummy mood. Your daily life is great and full of success, but you can't help but feel unexcited and unmotivated. If you're experiencing symptoms like these, you may be depressed â and it may stem from low testosterone.
A research study from Munich found that men with depression also commonly had low testosterone levels. This same study also found that depressed men had cortisol levels that were 67% higher than other men. Because higher cortisol levels lead to lower levels of testosterone, the chances of severe depression increase.
Depression is a very real disorder and should always be diagnosed and treated by your doctor. One treatment option gaining in popularity is TRT for depression. Studies show that when TRT is used to restore hormone levels, men enjoy a lighter, more improved mood. That's great news for men who are depressed and have not had success with other treatments like anti-depression medicines, which alter the brain's chemistry.
Ask anyone over the age of 50 how their memory is, and they'll tell you it wasn't what it used to be. Memory loss and lack of concentration occur naturally as we age â these aren't always signs of dementia or Alzheimer's.
However, what many men consider a symptom of age may be caused by low testosterone. A 2006 study found that males with low T levels performed poorly on cognitive skill tests. These results suggest that low testosterone may play a part in reducing cognitive ability. If you're having trouble staying on task or remembering what your schedule is for the day, it might not be due to your age. It might be because your testosterone levels are too low. If you're having trouble concentrating or remembering daily tasks, it could be time to talk to your doctor.
Why? The aforementioned study found that participating men experienced improved cognitive skills when using TRT.
Even though today's society is more inclusive of large people, few adults enjoy gaining weight as they age. Despite their best efforts, many men just can't shed the extra pounds around their midsections, increasing their risk of heart disease and cancer.
Often, male weight gain is caused by hormone imbalances that slow the metabolism and cause weight to pile on. This phase of life is called andropause and happens when there is a lack of testosterone in the body. Couple that with high cortisol levels, and you've got a recipe for flabby guts and double chins.
Fortunately, TRT treatments and physician-led weight loss programs can correct hormone imbalances and lead to healthy weight loss for men.
Sermorelin is a synthetic hormone peptide, like GHRH, which triggers the release of growth hormones. When used under the care of a qualified physician, Sermorelin can help you lose weight, increase your energy levels, and help you feel much younger.
Human growth hormone (HGH) therapy has been used for years to treat hormone deficiencies. Unlike HGH, which directly replaces declining human growth hormone levels, Sermorelin addresses the underlying cause of decreased HGH, stimulating the pituitary gland naturally. This approach keeps the mechanisms of growth hormone production active.
Benefits of Sermorelin include:
Ipamorelin helps to release growth hormones in a person's body by mimicking a peptide called ghrelin. Ghrelin is one of three hormones which work together to regulate the growth hormone levels released by the pituitary gland. Because Ipamorelin stimulates the body to produce growth hormone, your body won't stop its natural growth hormone production, which occurs with synthetic HGH.
Ipamorelin causes growth hormone secretion that resembles natural release patterns rather than being constantly elevated from HGH. Because ipamorelin stimulates the natural production of growth hormone, our patients can use this treatment long-term with fewer health risks.
One of the biggest benefits of Ipamorelin is that it is suitable for both men and women. It provides significant short and long-term benefits in age management therapies, boosting patients' overall health, wellbeing, and outlook on life. When growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland using Ipamorelin, clients report amazing benefits.
Some of those benefits include:

The next wave of Miami Hurricanes arrived on Sunday with the spring semester starting this week at UM.UM welcomed 13 early enrollee freshmen on Sunday with two more, OL Francis Mauigoa and TE Riley Williams, expected to enroll next week after participating in the Poly Bowl.The following early enrollee freshmen have mov...
The next wave of Miami Hurricanes arrived on Sunday with the spring semester starting this week at UM.
The following early enrollee freshmen have moved in: QB Emory Williams, WR Nathaniel Joseph, WR Robby Washington, TE Jackson Carver, OL Samson Okunlola, OL Antonio Tripp, DE Jayden Wayne, DL Collins Acheampong, DL Rueben Bain, LB Bobby Washington, LB Malik Bryant, DB Kaleb Spencer, and P Dylan Joyce.
That freshman group joins transfer additions in OL Matt Lee (UCF), OL Javion Cohen (Alabama), DL Branson Deen (Purdue), DL Thomas Gore (Georgia State), LB Francisco Mauigoa (Washington State), and CB Davonte Brown (UCF).
Earning a role as a true freshman is a tough task, but the earl enrollees give themselves a chance by going through the offseason strength and conditioning program and spring football.
Which of the early enrollee freshmen do we expect to make an instant impact?
Read on for our thoughts.
Projected Role: Rotational defensive lineman
Bain is an interesting player to project. His body type and athleticism isn’t overly impressive (he will benefit from a college level strength and conditioning program), but what Bain does bring to the field that is impressive for his age is technique, a relatively deep bag of pass rushing tricks, and an impressive motor that runs hot.
Nyjalik Kelly played 183 defensive snaps as a true freshman in 2022. We think Bain will finish in that same ballpark as a versatile defensive lineman that can take snaps in different positions in 2023.
Miami wants to play a deep rotation of defensive linemen and we project Bain as a player that can crack that rotation.
Projected Role: Rotational wide receiver / punt returner
Miami returns the top two slot receivers from the 2022 season in Xavier Restrepo and Brashard Smith, but Joseph is too dynamic to keep off the field—especially when you consider how the Hurricanes want to be much more explosive in 2023.
Joseph is going to instantly be in the conversation of being one of the fastest players on the team this spring and his agility and change of direction ability makes him a dynamic yards after catch threat.
Those traits will also make Joseph a dynamic punt return threat for the Hurricanes.
We’d project Joseph to play close to 200 offensive snaps in 2023.
Projected Role: Part time starter / rotational offensive lineman
Putting a true freshman offensive lineman on this list should give you an idea of the type of talent and upside Okunlola brings to the offensive line position group.
Getting Okunlola on campus for the spring semester will be important for Okunlola’s development—and improve his chance to earn a role as a true freshman.
Okunlola arrives at the college level with the necessary frame and weight, but he does need to improve is technique. In our opinion, his best chance at getting on the field immediately is playing on the interior and then he can kick outside in year two of his college career.
We project Okunlola to earn a spot in the playing rotation and maybe push for a starting job in the last month of the season.
Projected Role: Part time starter / rotational offensive lineman
This is the second true freshman offensive lineman on this list, which should tell you how special this offensive line recruiting class is that Miami just signed.
We put Mauigoa, who will arrive at UM next week after participating in the Polynesian Bowl on Friday night, slightly higher on this list than Okunlola because he is further along at the same stage with his technique and conditioning, thanks to the two years he spent being developed at IMG Academy.
Helping Mauigoa’s case for playing time as a true freshman is his versatility. He has the strength and size to play guard and he can also play right tackle because of his athleticism and ability to recover any missteps.
There will be a learning curve for Mauigoa once spring practice begins, but the fact that he will begin Miami’s program this spring only strengthens the belief that he will play as a true freshman. We’d project Mauigoa to compete for the starting right tackle job right away.
Projected Role: Starting punter
Joyce, a native of Australia, will be Miami’s punter in 2023 as he follows Lou Hedley in that role.
Joyce, who is 23 years old, has been playing Australian Rules Football for his career and has worked hard at his technique as a punter in American football.
While Joyce is new to American football, the special teams experts inside UM’s football building are excited about his raw ability and potential. With some training and continued work at his technique, Joyce can blossom into one of the top punters in the ACC.
The Sunshine State is known for its sandy beaches—and is not exactly known for its caves. That crown (of caves) goes to Tennessee, a state whose number of caves is unrivaled. Bell Witch Cave, whose name alone is enough to send a shiver down the spine of anyone, is one Tennessee Cave many are familiar with. But that do...
The Sunshine State is known for its sandy beaches—and is not exactly known for its caves. That crown (of caves) goes to Tennessee, a state whose number of caves is unrivaled. Bell Witch Cave, whose name alone is enough to send a shiver down the spine of anyone, is one Tennessee Cave many are familiar with. But that doesn’t mean Florida is not without any caves or underground marvels. Peacock Springs more than makes up for the rarity of caves in Florida. It shows how nature has a way of making amends.
Of course, cave diving is regarded as one of the most dangerous forms of exploration; something better left to professionals. And even for professional divers, there are cardinal rules one must abide by. Some caves have deep sinkholes that can take in the Washington Monument. For those who want to know, here’s how deep Peacock Springs is.
How deep Peacock Springs is, as with many caves or even lakes and rivers, will vary with location. There are sections that are deeper than the others and vice-versa.
But that said, the average depth of Peacock Springs is about five feet. Of course, the average might be a bit deceiving.
Information gleaned from Florida Geological Survey (Buletin 66) shows that while much of the pool is only 1.5 meters deep on average, there are sections that can go as deep as 12.2 meters. That’s about 40 feet.
For perspective, a story in a building is anywhere between 8 and 14 feet. What this therefore means is that certain sections of Peacock Springs can sink some 5-story buildings.
Of course, it also means that in its deepest sections, Peacock Springs can sink 7 men standing upon each other, based on the average height of an American man.
According to the Florida Geological Survey, even at the cave’s entrance, near the north end of the pool, the depth is 6.1 meters or 20 feet. Needless to say, this is a place, sans expert diving skills, anyone could easily struggle to swim in.
For those wondering whether it’s possible to swim at Peacock Springs, the answer is a pleasant yes. But with one crucial caveat: divers must show proof of their scuba certification.
Essentially, only experts can cave dive at Peacock Springs. This is because swimming at Peacock Springs is not the same as swimming at Myrtle Beach or any other beach for that matter.
Otherwise, swimming is a popular activity in the two springs that make up this underground network. But without a scuba certification, it’s not possible to swim at any of the two springs that make up this maze.
Still, it’s not all the same. Those with Open Diving Certification, for instance, will only be allowed to swim in Orange Grove Sink.
Those who have diving certifications and are allowed in the park will enjoy exploring up to a mind-boggling 10 miles of caves and tunnels that the Peacock Springs boasts of.
Yet the rules and restrictions haven't stopped people from flocking to these springs.
As a testament to its popularity, close to 20,000 divers from as far as Europe visit the springs annually to enjoy diving in one of the top cave diving sites in the world.
Of course, those who’ll want to enjoy diving in one of the best springs in Florida should get the directions right.
These unique underground springs are located within a park, the Peacock Springs State Park, which in turn is located about 3 kilometers east of Luraville in Suwannee County in the State of Florida. Suwannee County is in the north-central region of Florida.
Visitors to the park will also want to know that the name of the park in which these world-famous underground caves are—has changed.
Today, and since 2011, the park is officially known as Wes Skiles Peacock Springs State Park. The park’s current name is in commemoration of the work of celebrated diver and explorer Wes Skiles. Also, no solo diving is allowed in the park.
Finally, the park charges $4 for each vehicle with a maximum of 8 people.
For those who can, diving at Peacock Springs is an exciting adventure worth trying out, but only with plenty of caution and the right certification.
Winning in the modern college football era has almost always started at the quarterback position. For each of Florida, Florida State, Miami and UCF, they all have their pluses and minuses with the signal callers on their respective depth charts.Like the video above discussed in-depth about the quarterbacks, there have also been many factors for what happens next.Here’s an overview of where things stand today with each of the quarterback depth charts for the four primary programs in Florida -- Florida, Florida State, Miami...
Winning in the modern college football era has almost always started at the quarterback position. For each of Florida, Florida State, Miami and UCF, they all have their pluses and minuses with the signal callers on their respective depth charts.
Like the video above discussed in-depth about the quarterbacks, there have also been many factors for what happens next.
Here’s an overview of where things stand today with each of the quarterback depth charts for the four primary programs in Florida -- Florida, Florida State, Miami and UCF -- going in alphabetical order.
All classes listed for players were based on next season.
Beyond the mess that’s the Jaden Rashada recruiting and Name, Image, and Likeness saga, there’s simply no proven quarterback on the roster for head coach Billy Napier and the Florida football program.
Off to the NFL went the athletically gifted Anthony Richardson, and there’s now a gaping hole on the Florida quarterback depth chart with his departure.
Former Ohio State transfer Jack Miller at least knows the offense after being on campus this past season. He's a pocket passer that can move away from the rush and make a play. Physical talents aside, he only played in one game last season and went 13-22 for 180 yards, and no touchdowns or interceptions.
Miller was a highly recruited player so perhaps playing for the Gators in a new scheme will help him to maximize his talents. Time will tell, but he's also going to have to compete for the starting job.
The Gators landed another quarterback transfer with former Wisconsin Badger Graham Mertz. However, during his four seasons in Madison, Wis. playing for the Badgers, Mertz struggled quite often.
Part of the problem was not enough true big-play threats at wide receiver, and some of it was Mertz forcing the football into coverage. His 2022 statistics included going 164-286, 57.3%, 2,136 yards, 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
Mertz does have good arm strength and size at 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds. More of a pocket passer with some mobility, similar to Miller, Mertz needs to quickly find a rhythm in Gainesville, Fla. as the Gators simply have little depth behind Miller right now and need to at least establish a clear No. 1 and No. 2 behind center.
The only other likely option will be redshirt freshman Max Brown, who’s never thrown a college pass during a live game.
From this entire list of quarterback depth charts, the Gators should be considered in the worst shape of any team. That’s on paper though. Let’s see how the Rashada situation plays out and also take account of what happened during spring ball. Much more will be known then.
Florida State Seminoles
With a possible Heisman Trophy candidate in Jordan Travis back for next season, Florida State’s coaching staff has overseen the transformation of a runner that sometimes threw the football, to seeing the transformation of Travis turning into a passing quarterback with the ability to run.
Travis threw for 3,214 yards, a 64% completion rate, 24 touchdowns and only five interceptions last season. He also rushed for 417 yards, averaged 5.1 yards per tote, and scored another seven touchdowns.
Travis often played his best during big games, like bringing FSU back against Oklahoma to win 35 to 32 in the Cheez-It Bowl at Camping World Stadium in Orlando.
Against the Sooners, Travis went 27-38 for 418 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Travis also rushed for an additional 50 yards.
The only issue for the Noles is If he’s injured in 2023. There’s no proven player behind Travis on the quarterback depth chart, and really not even one with anything more than limited playing experience.
Rising senior Tate Rodemaker has played in each of the three seasons he’s been on campus in Tallahassee, Fla., but he’s only thrown a total of 62 passes. Beyond Rodemaker, the Noles have no other experienced player.
It will be interesting to see if incoming freshman quarterback Brock Glenn, an Elite 11 finalist, can push some of the other backups like Rodemaker and redshirt freshman AJ Duffy.
Perhaps the most up in the air situation stems from what happened in Coral Gables, Fla. The Hurricanes lost starting quarterback Tyler Van Dyke to a right-throwing-shoulder injury last season. Not once, but twice.
How will he be physically this next season? How about mentally? Shoulder injuries have sometimes proven to be difficult to return from, especially when a passer has worried about being hit and landing on his shoulder again.
When Van Dyke has been healthy, especially during the last half dozen games of 2021, he’s been terrific. In 2022, however, he was often erratic under new offensive coordinator Josh Gattis. How Van Dyke does during spring ball should be a big glimpse into what’s next for the Canes.
Behind Van Dyke, there’s redshirt sophomore Jake Garcia, as well as sophomore Jacurri Brown.
Garcia played in eight games and went 68-115, 59.1%, five touchdowns and four interceptions. He also had issues with being stripped of the football. Brown had similar issues. He went 27-45, 60%, three touchdowns and three interceptions.
Like Garcia, Brown played in eight games. His pocket awareness was not on par with the level of competition. That’s been typical of young college quarterbacks for probably as the forward pass has been around, so no surprise for Garcia or Brown, but still an issue that must be remedied by the end of the 2023 Miami spring practice sessions.
With Brown, there was the element of him running the football and making big plays, too. He ran 54 times for 223 yards, a 4.1 average. Because of his natural athleticism and 6-foot-4 and 210-pound frame, Brown could have an edge on Garcia to take over the quarterback position after Van Dyke leaves Miami, and possibly even before if Van Dyke falls to injury again.
Looking towards the future, Miami also signed Emory Williams in the class of 2023. Like Glenn that signed with FSU, Williams participated in the Elite 11 finals and has the chance to one day lead the Canes. Williams has shown that he's usually done his best work by passing the football from the pocket.
With John Rhys Plumlee having already announced he’s coming back for a fifth-year in Orlando, Fla., the Knights have an experienced option to operate Gus Malzahn's multiple offense that utilized a lot run-pass option plays this past season.
Plumlee went 218-346, 63%, 2,586 yards, 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions. The passing numbers alone do not tell the entire story, however. Plumlee was not on the same page with his receivers during multiple games last fall; there was a lot of feast or famine.
On the flip side, he’s one of the fastest and most dynamic players in all of college football. He ran for 862 yards, a 5.4 average, and 11 scores this past season. Plumlee will have two younger quarterbacks trying to battle with him this spring.
USF transfer and redshirt sophomore Timmy McClain has shown to be on the same athletic level as Plumlee. Elusive in space, a quick burst to separate from defenders, and strong for his size, McClain has the physical tools to be a great college quarterback.
He was a freshman starter for USF in 2021 and went 145-262 for 1,888 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions. The Bulls did not possess the talent needed to truly help McClain, but he at least gained quite a bit of experience throwing the football before he transferred to UCF this past August and sat out the 2022 season.
As a runner, he was capable of occasional explosive plays, but look for him to run more effectively in a UCF uniform after being in college for two seasons. Same with McClain's to pass the football, too.
The third member of the quarterback room for the Knights would be sophomore Thomas Castellanos. He played in six games this past fall. Castellanos went 9-16, 56.3%, 75 yards, no touchdowns or interceptions.
He has shown a huge arm at the prep level and during limited playing time with the Knights. Like Plumlee and McClain, Castellanos can also truly run the football. In fact, he was recruited to play several skill positions in college because of his athleticism.
Castellanos rushed 14 times for 120 yards, an 8.6 average, and one touchdown. With Castellanos as the third possible option for next fall, the Knights will have an intriguing spring practice with those three alone.
There’s also incoming freshman Dylan Rizk, a signal caller that’s a little bit more of a pocket passer than the other three mentioned above but still a player that likes to get on the edge to pass or run when possible.
Here are the latest recruiting rumors I’m hearing.Two quarterbacks with reclassification situations are being talked about. Florida QB Davi Belfort, who reclassified from 2025 to 2024 has a final three of Michigan State, Texas A&M, and Virginia Tech. Some have him as a 4-star while I have him as a high 3-star.

Here are the latest recruiting rumors I’m hearing.
Two quarterbacks with reclassification situations are being talked about. Florida QB Davi Belfort, who reclassified from 2025 to 2024 has a final three of Michigan State, Texas A&M, and Virginia Tech. Some have him as a 4-star while I have him as a high 3-star. But regardless he’s going to be a good get for someone. Most of the sources I talk to favor Michigan State here, with only one saying the Hokies, and I don’t think A&M is as involved as the others.
The other QB is 2025 Kentucky QB Cutter Boley who was rumored to be reclassifying to the 2024 class. However, that decision hasn’t been made and I hear he’s leaning towards staying in the 2025 class unless the perfect scenario arises. Boley is much more highly rated than Belfort and has a chance to be a 5-star in 2025. He will be obviously be pursued by Kentucky and Louisville and he wants to visit Florida State, Penn State, Michigan, LSU and Miami this spring but I keep hearing him mentioned with Josh Heupel and the Vols. He visited there this weekend and I do believe they are the team to beat despite some thinking it’s the Wildcats. Keep an eye on this one.
And finally, I’ve been told if there’s one team for Ohio State to worry about with 5 star WR Jeremiah Smith it’s Miami. The ‘Canes desperately need WR help and he’s a local so they will go all out — and I mean all out — to land him. The promotion of Brian Hartline to Offensive Coordinator helps this situation greatly for the Buckeyes as he’s the key to Smith, but Ohio State is also loaded at wide receiver and pursuing 5-stars Micah Hudson and Mike Matthews. Meanwhile, Miami’s receiving core is weak and Smith could come in and be WR1 right away in the 2024 season. There’s a long way to go here and the Buckeyes are in great shape but Miami’s positional need for a local would concern me.

One of the world’s most celebrated chefs, Massimo Bottura, is bringing his popular Italian restaurant Torno Subito to Downtown Miami later this year. It will be located on the rooftop of Julia & Henry’s, a seven-story entertainment and culinary space that is slated to debut this spring.
The restaurant, which Michelin recently recognized with one star, is more casual (and less expensive) than Bottura’s world-renowned, three-Michelin-starred Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy. However, it still serves plenty of the Italian fare that Bottura is best known for. The Miami outpost of Torno Subito will be similar to its Dubai counterpart, serving an Italian Riviera-inspired menu with dishes like oxtail ravioli, margherita pizza, rack of lamb, wagyu, and even a tagliatelle al ragu similar to the one found at Osteria Francescana.
Torno Subito’s Miami location is helmed by chef Bernardo Paladini, who’s been part of the Dubai team since it debuted in 2019. Before that, he spent seven years working with Bottura at Osteria Francescana and the more casual Franceschetta 58, also in Modena.
The restaurant is in partnership with King Goose Hospitality, the group that’s spearheading the Julia & Henry project, which will be home to 20 food and drink outposts from Miami favorites like Michelle Bernstein, Jose Mendin, and Bar Lab. According to reps, more details and opening dates are still being finalized, but more information will be available soon.
