Welcome to the U, 2019 LB/DE Jesiah Pierre

An early get, but a big one for Miami.

The Mark Richt football camp got its first commit on Thursday afternoon when 2019 LB/DE Jesiah Pierre committed to the U.

Just a rising sophomore, Pierre is already 6'3" 210lbs. He is an early take because of his advance physicality and athleticism. Pierre obviously loves Miami; there's a story that both he and his mother burst into tears when he received his offer.

Obviously, with some 2 1/2+ years until his signing day, there's a long time before Pierre will officially become a Hurricane. But that doesn't mean Canes fans shouldn't be excited about this commitment. Pierre should very well be a top 10 player in Florida by his senior year. Pierre is the first 2019 commit for the Hurricanes.

You can see what kind of player Pierre is in the HUDL highlights below:
