"I was down there this past weekend and I got a chance to meet with the coaches and spend more time with them; met with some of the players. That was the first time meeting them and it was cool. I had a few nights to sleep on it and figured why wait. I called Coach Golden yesterday and let him know the news. He was real happy. He was pulling for me. They wanted me to commit when I was there but I wasn't ready. He made sure I called Coach Carroll and so I let him know."
Kerr, 6-foot-6 and 250 pounds, has been high on Miami for awhile now.
"They have so much tradition there. I really, really, truly believe Coach Golden has them going in the right direction. He's turning the program, putting Miami back on the map. I really love the location, Miami is beautiful,, you cant get any better than that. The education speaks for itself. People would die for that opportunity. I think it would have been hard not to pock Miami."
The standout tight end prospect is used mainly as a blocker in high school and talked about what his future role will be.
"A tight end who can block the run, block the pass, run out and catch some passes. I wont split out as much as other tight ends. I'll put my paw on the ground and really get after it."
