2013 Cane signee headed elsewhere

A member of Miami's 2013 recruiting class will not be joining the Hurricanes this month. Read on for the details.

CanesTime has confirmed that Ryheem Lockley has switched his commitment from Miami to Marshall, and will be enrolling into school there next week.

Lockley, 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, was a three-star prospect from the state of Virginia in the Class of 2013. He played all over the field at Middlesex High in 2012.

In addition to being offered by West Virginia and Virginia, Lockley landed a late offer from the Canes last year, visited here, and signed back in February.

Unfortunately, Lockley was unable to gain admission into the school for the fall semester. Instead, he enrolled at Fork Union Military Academy, where he tried to get the necessary grades to start at Miami for the spring semester.

It didn't happen, and he'll now be spending the next few years at Marshall.

4-star wide receiver Derrick Griffin, another 2013 class member, is still waiting on his latest ACT scores to come back in. If he gets the necessary score, he'll start at Miami later this month. If not, he'll likely enroll elsewhere, perhaps even a Junior College.
