"I'm a Hurricane," Youngblood said. "I'm very excited to be a part of their program and this is just a huge opportunity that I can't pass up."
Youngblood, 6-5 and 280 pounds, spent the weekend in Miami and picked the Hurricanes over Texas and Oklahoma. He talked more about what he likes about the Canes.
"Miami's just such a great program," he said. "They've got everything you look for. When it comes to producing players, it doesn't get any better than that. They're always having a lot of success and they're always putting guys into the league. Coach Kehoe has been around forever and he's a great guy and a great coach. He's gotta be one of the best line coaches in the whole nation."
Youngblood, a full academic qualifier, said he believes he'll fit in well with the current roster.
"The players are great and I can definitely see myself fitting in," he said. "It's like one big family and they're all focused on getting things turned around. I think they'll be back on top in no time."
Youngblood believes his chances of making it to the next level will be improved greatly by becoming a Hurricane.
"You're going against the best competition every single day," he said. "All the depth chart stuff doesn't matter to me. The best guy will play and I'm gonna do whatever it takes to be that guy."
Youngblood's visits are finished.
"I'm done," he said. "Miami is where I've always wanted to go and now I'm going."
