McAfee Feeling FIU

Florida International went into the home of Cedrick McAfee Sunday night and didn't leave until they secured a verbal commitment from the Memphis Melrose product.

Isiah Thomas scored a commitment from's No. 99 prospect in the Class of 2011. Cedrick McAfee, a shooting guard from Memphis (Tenn.) Melrose, selected Thomas' program after the coach conducted a home visit on Sunday.

"Coach Isiah came in and talked to me and my family," McAfee said. "I've been talking to the assistant coach and me and my momma just agreed on it."

McAfee, who has never visited Florida International, cancelled trips to Auburn and Baylor.

Like some of his peers, McAfee was drawn in by the background of the head coach and his hall of fame credentials. "I can learn a lot from him. He's able to turn the program around and get some players."
