After a week that saw other Canes recruiting targets select other destinations, Miami was in need of some good news on the recruiting front. Thank good news came on Sunday Night:

And with that, Miami has a 2nd RB in this class, and a pretty darn good one, as Jordan Cronkrite committed to the Canes. Reaction was swift on twitter:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Jordan Cronkrite goes public with his commitment to Miami <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Canes&amp;src=hash">#Canes</a>.

Cronkrite (whose highlights you can see here) is the 10th commitment in Miami's 2015 class, and a huge pull for the Canes. It is well known that he is very close friends with 2 other top targets, Jaquan Johnson and Tim Irvin. Hopefully for the Canes, this commitment leads to others from Irvin and Johnson, and those 3, along with the other 9 commits, start to recruit other top notch players to join them in Coral Gables.

More reaction will come later, but for now.....

WELCOME TO THE U, JORDAN!!!!
