Canes land WR commitment

Miami's strong run on the recruiting front lately continued earlier this week when they landed a commitment from one of the top wide receiver prospects in south Florida.

Allen Hurns grew up a Miami fan. He went to their summer camp and impressed the coaches enough to land a scholarship offer from the Canes.

"I got some offers in the spring when the college coaches came by the school," Hurns said. "But Miami's the one I wanted and it hadn't come yet so that's why I went to their camp. I did real good, working with Coach Hill and the receivers and I thought I did enough to show them what I could do."

Hurns, 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds, landed the Miami offer following the camp and immediately began calling Miami his top school. Earlier this week he ended the process by making a commitment to the Canes.

"Miami's always been on top," he said. "It's a great program, it's close to home, and I have a real good relationship with Coach Hill. I really like what offensive coordinator Mark Whipple's doing. He has NFL coaching experience so I knew he'd be doing big things for them this year and he has been. I've been to some games and I really like the direction of the program."

The standout wide receiver, who took an official visit to West Virginia over the weekend, also claimed offers from schools like Ole Miss, Pittsburgh, and UCF. He's rated as a solid three-star prospect on Scout.

After catching 22 passes for 440 yards as a junior at Miami's Carol City High, Hurns injured his knee earlier this season.

"I've been rehabbing and it's coming along good," he said. "I'll be straight."

Hurns claims a 2.7 GPA inside the classroom and expects to graduate high school early so he can enroll at Miami for the spring semester.
