5 weeks after his visit to Coral Gables, 2015 OT Brendan Loftus decided to announce his collegiate destination. And, his decision is one that should please Canes fans.

With Loftus' commitment to the Canes, Miami now has 6 Offensive Linemen committed in the 2015 Class. Loftus joins Tyree St. Louis (who committed earlier today), Leeward Brown, Hayden Mahoney, Tyler Gauthier, and Geron Christian.

Standing 6'6" and weighing 275lbs, Loftus adds more size to an already packed OL class. And, with the skill position talent Miami brought in last year, and the talent committed this year, that size up front will be a strength for he team going forward and allow the skill players to make plays.

Here are Loftus' Junior highlights, for those who are interested in such things.
