2018 is a long, long ways away.
Nonetheless UM fans have to be happy about the latest athlete to verbally commit to the University of Miami
#Miami picks up an early pledge from legacy recruit & 2018 Fort Lauderdale University School DB Alphonso Blades II: http://t.co/VldjOdYkND— Corey Bender (@Corey_Bender) February 22, 2015
CB is 2018 DB Alphonso Blades. Son of Al Blades. Looks like a future dude. https://t.co/C1jA2YcQfw— Barton Simmons (@bartonsimmons) January 11, 2015
More on Alphonso, plus highlight videos HERE
Listed at 6'1 155, he certainly will need to beef up some.
But given his bloodlines, we expect Alphonso to be a major player. And when you are a Blades, you are 'Canes royalty, so this is a commit that has a good chance to stick.
Speaking of "stick" we dedicate the video below to this commitment and Al Blades Sr. RIP!
I dare you not to get fired up.
