Canes land commitment from local WR

The Hurricanes need wide receivers in the 2014 class and Friday they landed their fourth commitment at the position when one of the top local players announced he'll be a Cane.

Tyre Brady is one of the top wide receiver prospects in South Florida this year and the South Dade High standout committed to the Hurricanes today.

"I remember telling my mom when I was little that I was going to play for UM," Brady said. "Now I have been blessed the opportunity to tell her that your son is a Cane."

Brady, 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds, landed his first two scholarships back in March from Florida State and Florida. After he committed to Mark Stoops and Kentucky during the summer, the Canes jumped into the mix. He de-committed from the Wildcats earlier this season.

Brady, who also had scholarship offers from schools like Louisville and Mississippi State, had 24 receptions for 412 yards and six touchdowns for a team that went 9-1 during the regular season. They start the state playoffs tonight.

Scout recruiting analyst Chad Simmons talked more about Brady as a prospect.

"Brady is a very long and rangy athlete and he could play either side of the ball," Simmons said. "He has shown his ability to track the ball well and to high point the ball. He has average speed, but is a long-strider, so he covers a lot of ground quickly. There is a lot that attract coaches to Brady once they get to see him. He is a natural athlete that will only get better. He is extremely raw in most phases of the game, but he still makes plays."

Brady became Miami's fourth WR commitment in the 2014 class, joining Darrell Langham, Trayone Gray, and Braxton Berrios.
