On Saturday, Al Golden pulled a much needed recruit out of the New Jersey area, and away from Notre Dame.
Remember our defensive line last year? DO YOU?! Well they just got that much stronger with the commitment of consensus 4 star defensive end Al-quadin Muhammad. AQM, or Quan, had been previously all but set to attend the number one school in the country, Notre Dame. However, due to issues that are reportedly centered around admissions, he has yet to even visit their campus.
He did, thankfully, take a trip down to Coral Gables, which turned out to be huge for the Canes as he had a fantastic time. He bonded with Jermaine Grace, even going so far as to take one of his Miami hats and promise to give it back if he chose the Canes.
Well, Jermaine, you got that lid back today. Muhammad looks to be an immediate contributor on the defensive side of the ball, and almost instantly upgrades the Canes ability to rush the quarterback.
We will update you with quotes and info as they becomes available.
UPDATE: Here's video of his announcement:
