Welcome to The U: Miami Football Picks up 2018 Legacy Alphonso Blades

Son of Al Blades gives the Hurricanes a very early commit.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

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

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.

Welcome to the U Alphonso!!
