Canes Close on Commitment?

Last week Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade tight end Octavius Darby told us that he may have a decision by the end of his visit to UM. That day has come and gone. "It's still out of N.C. State and Miami," Darby said.

"I'm not exactly what I'll do. At first I was all about Miami but now I'm just kickin it and trying to make sure I make the right choice."

Darby, 6-2 and 225 pounds, has already enjoyed visits to both programs.

"N.C. State is further from home but I really like it there," he said. "They came at me strong all year. UM's been there all along too. It's a hard choice."

The talented tight end is still attracted to UM in a lot of ways.

"I think about all the tight ends they've had and I wanna be able to be a guy people talk about later, down the line," he said. "Miami's just a good school. I'll probably announce my final decision sometime around signing day."

Darby is a full academic qualifier.
