Then, shortly thereafter, we found out why the positive tweets, and who the new commit is

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>New <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Canes?src=hash">#Canes</a> 2016 commit JaQuwan Nelson is another of one of those physical gifted edge rushers with length.

JaQuwan Nelson, a 6'4" 230lb DE, is the latest player to join the #Swag16 class. Just like all the other commits in this class, Nelson is another South Florida player. Remember how you wanted the staff to change the way we're recruiting? Well, here you have it.

Nelson joins Joseph JacksonJoshua Uche, and Evan Hinson (also plays TE) as edge rush players in this class. Overall, the #1 national #Swag16 class now has 18 commits.
