Juco DL says he's committed to UM

This Junior College defensive tackle prospect was a one-time Florida State signee. He's now committed to Miami, he says. Read on for more.

Dalvon Stuckey was one of the top defensive tackle prospects in the state of Florida back in the Class of 2012. The Defuniak Springs (Fla) Walton County standout signed with Florida State after landing scholarship offers from schools like Florida, Clemson, South Carolina, and Louisville.

After being unable to qualify for admission at Florida State, Stuckey enrolled at Pearl River Community College for the 2012 season. He played in just five games there, and finished the season with four tackles as a reserve.

At 6-foot-3 and 295 pounds, Stuckey said he committed to the Hurricanes on Wednesday.

"I'm now committed to the University of Miami," Stuckey said. "It's all about the U."

Scott Kennedy, Scout.com's director of scouting, had this to say about the talented big man.

"A big body with good flexibility, Stuckey shows inconsistent effort from his defensive line position. He plays too high off the snap and has a tendency to get leveraged by smaller offensive linemen. Shows flashes of athleticism, but it too often content to watch a play going away from him. Has a good first step, but he struggles to get off blocks if he doesn't beat his man off the snap. A project with a strong foundation."

Stuckey is expected to graduate in December with three years to play two.

He would become Miami's first defensive line commitment for the Class of 2014.
