Canes now going after Ohio State commit

Ohio State landed an early commitment from one of the top prospects in the entire state of Florida. The Canes are now in the hunt with their latest offer to him. Read on to learn about him as a prospect and to see what Miami's chances are.

"Blessed to say I just received a Offer from the University of Miami," said Bruce Judson on Wednesday.

At 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds, Judson is a rising junior at Cocoa High. He plays quarterback in an option style offense and doubles as a defensive back on defense.

Judson made an early commitment to Ohio State but also landed early offers from schools like Florida State, Florida, and Clemson. Miami and Georgia became his two latest offers on Wednesday. While Clemson is recruiting him to play quarterback, pretty much everyone else is recruiting him as an offensive athlete. That likely means he'll play in the slot at the college level.

Judson finished his sophomore season with close to 2,000 yards passing, close to 1,000 yards rushing, and four interceptions. He plays for one of the top prep programs in the entire state and was considered their best player this past season. He's expected to be one of the top-rated kids in the whole state for the 2017 class, regardless of position.

Judson has been to Miami before for an unofficial visit so there is some interest there. He's been to Ohio State three or four times, however. He saw Florida a few times this spring, which likely means the Gators are Ohio State's top competition right now. He told Scout a couple months before making his commitment to Ohio State that the Buckeyes, Noles, and Clemson were his top three choices.

Considering he's been committed to the defending national champions for a few months and plays at a premier prep program, Miami's a bit late with this offer which will likely negatively affect their chances of landing him down the road.

The Canes already have a handful of 2017 commitments but getting a player like Judson would give them one of the best players in that class.
