DL Confirms Commitment

One of Miami's DL commitments makes a visit to another school and reaffirms his pledge to the Canes. We have the latest in this interview.

Despite a successful visit to South Florida on Jan 11 and a good meeting with Florida head coach Ron Zook this past week, Sarasota (Booker) defensive end Baraka Atkins never wavered on his original choice.

"I'm still committed to Miami and everyone knows now," he said. "I had a real good trip to South Florida, but I know where I'm going. Coach Zook and I had a nice meeting, but he couldn't change my mind. I'm not even going to visit there. I committed to Art Kehoe and Miami and I'm visiting there next weekend."

I first reported the commitment from Atkins in early January, then there were Internet reports denying it. However, as he says, it's confirmed. Atkins is a Hurricane.
