What was old is new again as Carol City (FL) LB De’Andre Wilder has committed to Miami.

Wilder, a player who nearly committed to Miami earlier this cycle, had maintained for quite a while that Auburn and Miami were the 2 schools he was considering, with Auburn holding a slight lead. That has apparently changed with Wilder’s public re-commitment to Miami.

The 6’2” 197lb Wilder makes plays from the OLB and DE spots. He is an early enrollee, and should be on campus in Coral Gables in January. We interviewed Wilder earlier this year, and you can see that interview here.

Wilder joins Waynmon Steed and Bradley Jennings, Jr. at the LB spot in this class. To get a better idea what kind of player Wilder is, you can see the HUDL highlights below.

Welcome to the U, De’Andre!
