"Miami blew me away on my visit so it made the whole decision a lot easier," Trump said. "I'm very excited about the whole thing."
Trump, 6-4 and 280 pounds, first started getting recruited by UM over the summer when Art Kehoe began getting involved.
"They got on me early and they actually offered me back in the summer," he said. "At the time I was pretty high on Notre Dame and I liked Florida State a lot at the time. I was interested in Miami but probably not as much as those others. But as the season went along and Coach Kehoe and Coach Werner continued to recruit me, I became more and more interested in them."
Things really went wide open when Notre Dame fired head coach Ty Willingham after the season.
"I pretty much crossed Notre Dame off when the whole coaching situation went down," he said. "And I just wasn't feeling Florida State as much. I started really thinking more and more about Miami. Then my visit really did it for me."
Trump said Kehoe is the main reason why he went from being a FSU fan growing up to being a Hurricane commitment.
"Coach Kehoe's awesome," he said. "His players love him. They have fun at practice. He's been there for a long time and he's really fun to be around. He convinced me to change my mind and I'm really looking forward to working with him and starting my career there."
The talented lineman, a full academic qualifier, plans on taking one more visit.
"I'm a man of my word so this commitment is strong but I told South Florida that I'll visit them," he said. "That'll be it."
