Canes lose commitment Sunday

The Hurricanes lost one of its first commitments Sunday after the talented senior took a weekend visit to another ACC school. Read on for the details.

Bowman Archibald committed to Miami back in March. Several schools continued recruiting him and he took an official visit to Wake Forest over the weekend. On Sunday, Archibald announced on Twitter that he switched his commitment from Miami to Wake Forest.

At 6-foot-6 and 240 pounds, Archibald has been playing all over the field for Pasco High this season. In three games he has 65 yards rushing and four scores while being primarily used as a short-yardage back. He has six catches for 76 yards and one touchdown as a tight end. As a defensive end he has 15 tackles, four for loss, two hurries, and one interception.

Archibald was recruited nationally. He had scholarship offers from schools like Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Florida, and USC at the time of his commitment to the Hurricanes.

Whether the Canes continue pursuing him is unclear right now but since he signed a Financial Aid Agreement with UM back in August, the Canes must honor his scholarship in case he decides to sign with them in February.

The Hurricanes now have 21 commitments in their 2015 recruiting class.
