Emmitt Tatum Interview

Jupiter offensive lineman Emmitt Tatum made a very early commitment to UM last summer. After several months, is he still committed to the Hurricanes? We have the entire interview.

As UM continues getting a bevy of commitments, one recently dropped off the list.

"I'm in a tough situation right now with my test scores," offensive lineman Emmitt Tatum said. "I'm looking at some Junior Colleges in Mississippi and Texas right now."

At 6-foot-4 and 310 pounds, Tatum committed to UM last summer, but says it won't happen till at least another two years.

"Hopefully I do well enough to come back to Miami," he said.

Tatum says he and his coach have been talking with Northwest Mississippi JuCo. "At Miami, I would have had to redshirt my first year. At a Junior College, I can hopefully play right away."

He said if his test scores work out, Florida Atlantic is a possibility because things with UM don't appear to be working out. "I haven't heard from Miami in a long time."
