2017 QB Todd Centeio De-commits

One of the prized commits in the 2017 recruiting class, Dwyer QB Todd Centeio has decommitted from the Hurricanes

On Friday evening, this tweet caught my attention, and that of many Canes fans.

2017 QB Todd Centeio, who recently transferred from Royal Palm Beach to Dwyer, is a player who was committed to Miami for several months. When news of his transfer to Dwyer came back in January, many who follow recruiting became skeptical that Miami would be able to hold onto his commitment. And, after the absolute inability to recruit players from that HS over the past, I dunno, 15-20 years, that stood to reason.

After many protestations and statements about the security of his commitment to Miami, Centeio is the latest Dwyer player to decommit from the U. After this decommitment, the Hurricanes are left with 5 commitments for the 2017 recruiting class.

Now, there is a chance he could reaffirm his pledge to Miami in the future, but with QBs, that rarely happens.

And, while I know that this isn't good (when is losing the QB commit in a recruiting class a good thing), there is still time to find the QB for the 2017 class. AND, while we're at it, Centeio is a rising Junior. So, there are still roughly 20 months until his class' signing day.

No, losing a player of Centeio's caliber isn't good. But, if there's one thing James Coley can do, it's recruit QBs. For this position in the class of 2017, I think we'll be fine...eventually.
