According to a report from Jason Jewell of Scout.com, Scottsdale (Ariz) CC DT Calvin Heurtelou will be signing with the Miami Hurricanes.

CC head coach Doug Madoski says star DT Calvin Heurtelou will sign with Miami today</p>&mdash; Jason Jewell (@jason247scout) <a href="https://twitter.com/jason247scout/statuses/413409679943802881">December 18, 2013</a></blockquote>

If true, the Canes will have effectively swapped JUCO DTs in the 2014 class. With Dalvon Stuckey out of this class, Heurtelou moves in as a game-ready option. And, put with fellow JUCO DT Michael Wyche and highly rated HS recruits Courtel Jenkins, Anthony Moten and Travonte Valentine, Miami now has 5 very good incoming players at a position of desperate need.
