With the latest commitment coming to the Miami Hurricanes' 2015 class coming a few weeks ago, fans and journalists wondered who would be the next player to commit. The answer came on Thursday afternoon, and it would have to be classified as a bit of a surprise, and was first reported by Peter Ariz of CanesInSight.com

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Bowman Archibald has committed to Miami <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Canes&amp;src=hash">#Canes</a></p>&mdash; Peter Ariz (@PeterAriz) <a href="https://twitter.com/PeterAriz/statuses/446717769162457089">March 20, 2014</a></blockquote>

And you know a commit can't come without Brennan Carrol chiming in:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23WelcomeToTheU&amp;src=hash">#WelcomeToTheU</a>!!!! <a href="http://t.co/IDK5MFw91j">pic.twitter.com/IDK5MFw91j</a></p>&mdash; Brennan Carroll (@brennanpcarroll) <a href="https://twitter.com/brennanpcarroll/statuses/446717557882781696">March 20, 2014</a></blockquote>

Then, Bowman Archibald gave his own personal confirmation:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Such a blessing to say that I have committed to the university of Miami!!  #GoCanes#Pumped#thankful!</p>&mdash; Bowman Archibald (@Bo_Diesel5) <a href="https://twitter.com/Bo_Diesel5/statuses/446720420633669632">March 20, 2014</a></blockquote>

In all, it's a good pickup at a position where we could use more depth and talent in future years.

Oh yeah, and one more thing...
