Canes lose safety commit

The Hurricanes lost a safety commitment last night. Read on for the details.

Ahman Ross made a very early commitment to the University of Miami under the former coaching regime. He remained pledged to the Hurricanes after Mark Richt and his new staff took over but has now decided to open things back up.

"After careful consideration and discussing it with my parents, I've made the decision to de-commit from the University of Miami," Ross announced last night. "There are no hard feelings and I want to thank the Miami coaching staff. I want to explore all my options and give other schools consideration."

Ross, 5-foot-11 and 195 pounds, is one of the best safety prospects in North Florida and he is fresh off an excellent junior season at The Bolles School in Jacksonville. Some of his other scholarship offers include Louisville, South Florida, Indiana, and FAU.

The Canes signed three safeties in Richt's first class back in February and recently added Billy Gibson (Miami Southridge HS) in the 2017 class so they're definitely not hurting for numbers at the position.

Some have hinted that this happened because Miami's coaches cooled on their recruiting efforts with Ross but that has not been confirmed.
