Miami makes offer to Tampa QB Wednesday

Miami is searching the entire country for more quarterbacks, and they stayed in-state for their latest offer which went out on Wednesday night. Read on to learn about him as a prospect and what Miami's chances are.

"Offered by the University of Miami," Cade Weldon announced Wednesday night.

At 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds, Weldon is a rising junior quarterback prospect from Jefferson High in Tampa.

In his first season as a varsity starter in 2014, Weldon threw for 2,103 yards and 20 touchdowns. He added over 300 yards and four scores on the ground, showing off a decent amount of mobility.

Wake Forest, USF, and Kentucky were some of his previous offers but it's likely only a matter of time before he starts collecting major offers from all over. A lot of schools want to see him live at camp this summer before pulling the offer trigger.

Weldon, whose father (Casey) played quarterback at Florida State back in the day, took several unofficial visits this spring to schools like Florida, UCLA, and USC. He has not yet seen Miami, so it's unclear how much interest he'll have in his father's former arch-rival.

The Canes have a commitment from one of the nation's top quarterback prospects (Jack Allison) in the 2016 class so they're likely finished recruiting that position for this year. Quarterback will be a position of need in 2017, however, so it's no surprise that Weldon is now one of nearly 15 quarterback prospects nation-wide who hold offers from the Canes.
