But the 'Canes did not just pick up 1,2, or 3 commits today!
UM picked up 4, count em 4, big 2016 verbals as 2015 NSD closes in quickly.
Here are the summaries of each:
DT Keyshon Camp (class of 2016)
2016 DT Keyshon Camp has committed to Miami #Canes— Peter Ariz (@PeterAriz) January 25, 2015
This one has to excite DT obsessed UM fans, although had he been a class of 2015 commit, it would have been even sweeter. And why not, it is a position of need.
Camp is listed as 6'4 265 and and is from Lakeland, Fl (Lake Gibson).
He also had offers from Virginia Tech and Duke, and other big programs (FSU) were starting to take interest. He did miss all of last season with an ACL injury, but he appears to have lost no explosion. With a frame that could put him over 300 and nice athleticism for a big man, this a very nice pick-up should it last all the way until NSD 2016.
S Cedrick Wright and DE Joe Jackson (class of 2016)
The Gulliver H.S. teammates (same school as Dionte Mullins) are a packaged deal and both are talented 4 star prospects.

Wright is a 5'9 180 pound ball hawk, who will need to grow into his frame more, but is a big time play maker already.
His playing style has earned him the nickname Honey Badger 2.0, but judge for yourself:
Jackson is a rangy 6'4 230 pound DE who has an elite first step, and could be monster as he adds even more size to his frame. His backside pursuit and use of his hands to shed blocks, are particularly impressive.
RB Amir Rasul (class of 2016)
The 6'0 200 pound Rasul is has great size and track speed. He could stand to lower his pad level some, but as an explosive athlete there is a ton of potential to improve.
Commit 3: Amir Rasul (6-0/195), Coral Gables. WVU, USF, SoCAR were some of his other offers. http://t.co/ltOpMF2RNy @Speedy_ARII— CanesTimeMiami (@CanesTimeMiami) January 25, 2015
