Canes add Georgia Punter

The University of Miami has added a punter to its 2013 recruiting class. Read on for more.

One of the biggest recruiting needs in this year's class -- and also one of the least talked about -- is a punter to replace Dalton Botts.

The Hurricanes have taken care of that need, in terms of a recruited walkon. Austin Barton will soon be a Miami Hurricane.

"[I] committed to the University of Miami," said Barton, who spent time on the campus this past weekend. He was especially impressed with head coach Al Golden.

"I have to say after meeting and talking with Coach Golden, he is one of my favorite coaches."

Barton, 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds, plays at Whitewater High in Fayatteville, Georgia.
