Canes lose DL commit

The Hurricanes lost a defensive line commitment over the weekend. Read on for more details.

Dalvon Stuckey signed with Florida State out of high school a couple years ago. He didn't qualify and went to Pearl River Junior College instead. He then committed to the Hurricanes back in the spring after landing a UM offer.

Now, he says, he's no longer committed.

"For the Miami fans who understand, thanks for the support," Stuckey said on his Twitter account Sunday night.

The news comes one day after Stuckey took in the Auburn/Georgia game Saturday, which turned out to be one of the most exciting games of the college season.

Stuckey, 6-foot-4 and 300 pounds, says he rushed the field with Auburn fans after the game and obviously got caught up in the excitement.

Last week Stuckey told Scout that he scheduled December visits to both Nebraska and West Virginia. Auburn will likely get one as well.

Stuckey was one of five defensive tackle commitments for the Hurricanes, which included another Junior College prospect (Mike Wyche). While the Hurricanes will likely continue recruiting him, especially considering their need for interior D-Line help, it remains unclear if he will take a visit here.

Expected to graduate in December, Stuckey has 19 tackles and three sacks through nine games this season.

The Canes, who landed a commitment from 4-star DT Anthony Moten last week, are still actively recruiting a handful of other Junior College defensive tackle prospects.
