Monday night was quiet for Miami. That is, until the Canes got a commitment seemingly out of nowhere.
2017 TE Brian Polendey out of Texas has committed to Miami #Canes— Peter Ariz (@PeterAriz) March 22, 2016
Denton (TX) Guyer 2017 TE Brian Polendey is the latest player to commit to the Hurricanes. A 3-star prospect, Polendey has good size at 6'5" 223lbs. As of today, Polendey only has 6 offers, but with size like his and good movement skills, I'm sure that number will increase in the near future.

Polendey is the first commitment for Miami that isn't a Florida Native. This just further underscores the fact that Mark Richt and staff will be doing the large majority of recruiting in state, and looking to add top talent nationally, as they've done here with Polendey.
Polendey picked Miami over offers from Houston, Arkansas, Duke, and Michigan. Polendey's commitment keeps the momentum going for Miami, who secured 2 commitments from top targets QB N'Kosi Perry and WR Kevaughn Dingle on Saturday.
Polendey is the 13th commit in the Hurricanes' 2017 recruiting class. You can see his HUDL highlights below:
