#WelcomeToTheU, Dazalin Worsham. All-American WR @dazalin4 commits to Miami over Alabama. That’s a big recruiting win for Taylor Stubblefield, and bolsters the #Canes’ 2020 recruiting class in a big way. https://t.co/MM3Z78ZFEL pic.twitter.com/t8HAeipf96— StateOfTheU.com (@TheStateOfTheU) November 22, 2019
