UM Lands Commitment

Early in the recruiting process Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas standout defensive back Anthony Reddick had a pretty good idea of where he'd end up signing. However, the process made that decision difficult.

"It was a hard decision in the end," Reddick said. "I committed to Miami. I did it over the weekend after Coach Coker had came to my house and met with me and my parents."

Reddick said it was a tough decision in the end but had a good idea all along.

"I knew way back in the beginning that UM is probably the best place for me but then when I started talking to other coaches and taking other visits it kinda got hard," he said. "It just felt better to be at UM than to go far away. Why go far away when you got a great situation like that real close to home?"

The talented defensive back was being recruited to play cornerback earlier in the year but it now appears he'll play free safety.

"That's the position Coach Coker was saying they want me at," he said. "It doesn't matter to me, I just wanna get on the field as quickly as I can. I know there's gonna be competition so that's gonna make me have to work that much harder. I'm excited about it."

Reddick hopes to speak to new UM secondary coach Tim Walton later today.

"He's supposed to be calling me later today to go over some things," he said. "He's gonna try getting all the top guys from around here. I'll be one of them for sure, you don't have to worry about that."

Reddick is a full academic qualifier.
