Devin Hester Commits to Miami

Considered by many to be the state's No. 1 overall prospect, Devin Hester ended the recruiting suspense today by making a final decision. We have the full interview.

"I'm a Hurricane," he said. "I considered a few other schools, but I knew all along that I was going to Miami. It's just the best situation for me. My brother is going to school just up the road at FIU and it allows us a chance to be close."

At 5-11 and 180, Hester might be the state's fastest player. Miami plans to utilize that next season.

"They told me I will have a chance to play next season if I work hard enough," he said. "I definitely want to return kicks. They are going to give me a chance on both sides of the ball, then it's up to me."

Hester hung out with some of UM's top players and came away very impressed.

"I hung out with Andre Johnson, Ed Reed, and also Portis," he said. "They're all so friendly. They're very close as a team and that's what I like."

Hester is very excited about the future as well.

"We're going to have a great recruiting class," he said. "We're gonna win a national championship again next season and probably more after that. I'm just happy that I can be a part of it all."
