"Miami blew me away," Demps said. "It was amazing there. Everything you could possibly want, Miami had it. It was a very impressive visit."
Demps, 6-4 and 225 pounds, spent the weekend hanging out with UM players and realizing what a good fit he'd be as a Hurricane.
"I was with Jon Beason and a lot of players," he said. "They're all real tight. Great guys. It's like a big family there. They were practicing and it was impressive to see how much they really got after it."
One thing Demps did note by the time his visit was finished was the lack of linebackers on the roster.
"They need more," he said. "I know they were telling me about how they need 'em but I saw it for myself. Those guys love to compete and I'm not different. I think I can help the day I get there if that's where I choose to go."
So where do the Hurricanes currently stand after the weekend?
"Miami's in real good shape right now," he said. "I'm very impressed. It's gonna be hard to top that. I got Florida State (Jan. 7), Auburn (Jan. 14), and Ole Miss (Jan. 21) next month so I'll be able to compare even more to what I've seen at LSU and Miami."
Demps, whose school's O-Line coach is former Hurricane Ty Wise, said there's a lot to like about both programs he's visited so far.
"LSU is a great place," he said. "My brother's there now and I really enjoyed myself but man, Miami's tight. I could really see myself playing linebacker in their system. The coaches are great, they're real friendly and easy to talk to."
