At 6-foot-6 and 320 pounds, Darling is a four-star offensive tackle prospect who committed to the Hurricanes over a year ago. He's been impressed by the Canes so far.
"I think it's great," Darling said of Miami's season. "They need to keep doing what they're doing and keep playing good ball."
Darling, whose Central team has a showdown lined up against Miami Northwestern on October 18, has been especially impressed with Miami's offensive line play.
"They've been great," he said. "They've been blocking well for Stephen and Duke. They look good."
Darling says he feels comfortable around several members of Miami's offensive line already.
Darling, who says he speaks to coaches Kehoe and Brown every week, isn't sure which position he'll play exactly at Miami next season.
"I'm not sure yet but I'll play wherever they need me," he said.
