Big commitment looming for Miami?

Jason Strowbridge is a four-star defensive line prospect from Deerfield Beach. The Hurricanes have been all over him and they're one of his finalists. He's set to announce his commitment tomorrow. Are the Canes in good shape? Read on.

Jason Strowbridge was offered by Miami very early in the recruiting process. At 6-foot-4 and 255 pounds, he's been one of the state's most heavily recruited defensive line prospects.

"I've decided to commit tomorrow at 1," Strowbridge announced today.

Strowbridge has over 30 scholarship offers but says the Hurricanes have recruited him the hardest.

"Miami is the school recruiting me the hardest and I feel at home there," he told Scout. "I usually talk to (running backs) coach Hurlie (Brown) or (defensive line) coach Jethro (Franklin) at least once or twice a week."

Deerfield Beach head coach Allen Jackson also believes Miami's recruited him the hardest.

”Miami is on him hard and it’s every day,” Jackson said. “Then I would say it’s Florida. Florida State is kind of every now and then. But if I had to say one school, Miami is doing the most."

Strowbridge has not yet taken any official visits but took unofficial visits this past summer to Miami, Tennessee, Kentucky, Florida, Florida State, Alabama, and Auburn.

We believe the Hurricanes are in great shape to land his commitment tomorrow.

"The coaches and the environment make me feel like I am already part of the team there," the talented defensive lineman said about the Canes. ""Basically, they just talk about how much they need me and where I would fit in. Coach Hurlie (Brown) was telling me about the marine biology trips they take in the summer. I like the location too because it is not too far from home."

The Hurricanes currently have three defensive end commitments -- 4-star Scott Patchan and 3-stars Jamie Gordinier and Richard McIntosh. By landing Strowbridge, there's a good chance the Canes would be finished at the position.
