The #UNite Spring game saw not only the unveiling of the Renewed Nike Jerseys, but also forward movement on the recruiting trail.

First, news came of impact defensive end and #Cane legacy Scott Patchan committing to Miami

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>DE from Tampa.

And, of course, the bat signal from Recruiting Coordinator Brennan Carroll

And, since I know you're wondering, here are Patchan's hudl highlights

Then, since that wasn't enough, highly touted RB Dexter Williams committed to Miami as well

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>THAT&#39;S 2!! WOOOO!!!!!

Williams' own words about his commitment:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>RT <a href="https://twitter.com/LukeStampini">@LukeStampini</a>: Top247 RB Dexter Williams: &quot;Its good to be a Cane&quot;</p>&mdash; StateOfTheU.com (@TheStateOfTheU) <a href="https://twitter.com/TheStateOfTheU/statuses/455070104561410049">April 12, 2014</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

And, of course, the bat signal

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>There it is RT <a href="https://twitter.com/brennanpcarroll">@brennanpcarroll</a>: <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23WelcomeToTheU&amp;src=hash">#WelcomeToTheU</a> x2!!!!</p>&mdash; StateOfTheU.com (@TheStateOfTheU) <a href="https://twitter.com/TheStateOfTheU/statuses/455078804541931520">April 12, 2014</a></blockquote>

Want a bit of analysis from our other recruiting guy, Joe Garcia? Of course you do

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Archibald, Patchan, and Williams commitment are a big step in the right direction after the lackluster start to the class. Love it.</p>&mdash; Joe Garcia (@JGJr9) <a href="https://twitter.com/JGJr9/statuses/455075250943037440">April 12, 2014</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

And, when you see Williams' highlight tape, you'll know why Joe and JN Gerhart (a cane fan on twitter) have been the main 2 people hoping that Williams would end up in this class for Miami.


So, with that, the Class of 2015 now stands at 9 commits, and momentum seems to be positive. As the Al Golden Football camps approach, look for Miami to make a serious move towards getting more commits to join this class.

But, for now...

WELCOME TO THE U, SCOTT AND DEXTER!!!!!
