Canes get TE who had close to 40 offers

The University of Miami landed another big commitment on Monday night when the state's most heavily recruited tight end pledged.

Travis Johnson grew up a big fan of the University of Miami. And on Monday night, his dream of becoming a Hurricane just became a whole lot more real.

"I committed to Miami," he said. "They were my dream school all growing up. I'd be at my cousin's house and we'd always watch them so I grew up rooting for them."

Johnson, who landed the offer from the Canes earlier today, put his name on the recruiting map as a junior at Jesuit High in Tampa. He chose the Canes over schools like Oklahoma, Ohio State, Florida, Notre Dame, Clemson, and Auburn, and has just over 40 scholarship offers.

Johnson, who caught 48 passes for 653 yards and four touchdowns last season, becomes Miami's second tight end commitment, joining 4-star Standish Dobard from Louisiana.
