Dubose wavering on Miami commitment

B.J. Dubose was considered a Louisville lean before committing to Miami last weekend. Now, one day before National Signing Day, the three-star defensive lineman from Oakland Park (FL) Northeast, is "confused" about who to sign with on Wednesday. Is that good news for the Cardinals?

B.J. Dubose was considered a strong Louisville lean after making an official visit with Charlie Strong's Cardinals last month.

Then Dubose made a rather surprising commitment to Miami during his official visit with Al Golden's Hurricanes last weekend.

Now, according to Oakland Park (FL) Northeast coach Donnell Bennett, the three-star defensive lineman is, "confused," about which school he'll sign a national letter of intent Wednesday.

"I don't know what he's going to do," Bennett told InsideTheVille.com Tuesday afternoon. "He hasn't given me an indication either way."

Bennett said Dubose has LOI ready to go for both Miami and Louisville, and the talented sack-artist is scheduled to make his decision known to the public at a school ceremony at noon. Dubose, though, will be faxing his signed LOI to the school of his choice in the morning before his public announcement.

"I've been talking to him throughout the day, periodically," said Bennett. "I think it's something he and his family are going to [decide] tonight. I think he's kind of confused. Yesterday he was kind of confused but he's coming out of it. I think he's pretty solid here to make a decision soon."

There has been considerable speculation about his academic status, but Bennett believes Dubose can qualify to play next season.

"I think he'll be OK," Bennett said. "He's made a big transition in his life and really grown up in the past year and is working hard to take care of his business."

Bennett said he doesn't think the academic "stuff" will play too big a part in his college decision.
