A twisting, turning recruitment to say the least

In a bit of a shocking development, Ft. Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas 3-star DT Jason Muñoz has flipped from Miami to Syracuse.

Muñoz confirmed this commitment on Twitter shortly after it broke

Muñoz signed early with Miami, but was released from his NLI after the coaching change from Mark Richt to Manny Diaz according to Syracuse’s 247sports site. That release led to a secret visit to Syracuse last weekend, and today’s flip commitment.

At 6’4” 274lbs, Muñoz has good size. Playing for powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas, Muñoz had 21 tackles, 5 TFLs, and 3 sacks in an injured plagued senior season.

With Muñoz’s flip, Miami has 2 DTs in the 2019 recruiting class: 4-star Jason Blissett and 3-star Jalar Holley.

Miami continues to shape the 2019 recruiting class ahead of National Signing Day on February 6th.

We wish Jason Muñoz the best in his future endeavors.
